Help me find some new music (A rant)
    #9003800 - 09/29/08 07:13 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Alright I'm kind of annoyed right now. Like I've spent the last few months specificially paying attention the music in my surroundings. Like anytime a TV or a radio or cars in a parking lot or kids at a party I'm at I'm paying attention to the music surrounding me. And what frustrates me is so much of it is absolute garbage, like mind numbing generic garbage. The rap is stereotypical anti-intellectual filth that creeps the black communitiy's and the poors mind enslaved and so much of the rock is childish feminized whiny bullshit with uncreative sound. It's annoying to me because I'm trying to absorb around me the cool music to be able to expand my understanding of it and to find new music I like but it's just not happening.

The worst thing though is you'll catch like 20 seconds or 30 seconds of an absolutely sick beat or part of a song that'll absolutely fascinate or capitatve you and you'll want to hear more but it's always in a fucking commercial or something that you can't figure out the source of the music so you're fucked. This just happened to me last night while watching a hockey game online. While the screen was whited out because of time zone restrictions or whatever I could only get the audio for the commercial which was a sick song that was really creative and catchy but since I didn't get the video of what the commercial was on I have no idea how to track down the song. It's fucked that the commercials nowadays have the cool catchy songs and the mainstream has the shitty boring songs. For instance one of my new favorite bands that I just discovered is The Fall and I found them because of a car commercial. It really sucks that there is going to be a whole generation growing up on shitty music and ideals in the future. I'm probably sounding really old right now but I'm just disappointed with our culture.

Anyway, does anyone know of any cool new rock bands I should check out? I'm looking for more aggressive, heavy drums, screaming type bands but I'll listen to anything anyone here feels has merit.

Thank you

Forget rock, go with Scandinavian metal.  Black, death, melodic death, epic and folk etc.

Metal is a sub-genre of rock :grin:

Anyway, I grew tired of my style of music a few years ago (gangsta and classic rock).  So I explored different genres and wound up with a strong taste for Opera, Bluegrass and DnB.  Now most the music I listen to is Opera, Bluegrass and DnB (for now). :ohwell:

Yeah I know, but when you compare it to the whiney bitching rock shit that's played in the US it's hard to remember.

I used to listen soley to metal, but I've widened my tastes.  I'm on an atmospheric/ambient streak right now.

This maybe the wrong situation for this, but I personally find Bluegrass music as some of the most interesting music to listen to.

Alright I've decided to devote my entire afternoon to smoking pot and looking at new bands and their videos. After about ten misses I stumbled on this video. Is it me or is this really bad ass? I went to the band's MySpace and didn't care for any of their other songs but this song and video strikes me as kick ass and almost what I'm looking for.

Before he started singing it sounded just like black sabbath.  BUt the singing turned me off.

How about try some JamRock bands...

Tea Leaf Green
Moe.
Phish
Gov't Mule

As for the whole rap thing, there is good hip-hop but it's mostly the older stuff that still had a message but you probably already know who those are.

I also seconded the Scandanavian/Norwegian idea for metal as well as punk style music.  Try Turbonegro, I always thought they were pretty sick for quote on quote punk, they also did the theme song for Wildboyz with Steve-O and Chris Pontius which you may have heard before...

I was in the same boat as you though just getting sick of hearing the same old shit all the time, I invested in Sirius Satellite radio a half a year ago though and have never looked back.  The vareity is pretty endless on that damn thing :thumbup:

I've been getting into a LOT of post-rock lately

If you can deal with no vocals and orgasmic-like crescendos of pure rock, check these bands out

-Explosions in the Sky (ammmmazing live)
-This Will Destroy You
-God is an Astronaut
-Russian Circles
-Red Sparowes

Yeah,I  stopped listening to mainstream radio years ago, its pointless.  Now I just research music online and download what interests me.  The site I use mainly to find new music is Last.fm but there's other ones like purevolum and whatnot.

Heaven Shall Burn - black metal
27 - Indie
Unkle - electronica
Caliban - black metal
Modwheelmood - electronica
Brother Ali - hip-hop
Cloud Cult- indie
Massive Attack - trip-hop
Nujabes - hip-hop
Slightly Stoopid - reggae

Man go submerge yourself in your local music scene, don't count on radios or TVs to bring you cool music... go to shows and meet music people.  There's always always loads of fantastic music being made and played.  Find one solid musically informed friend and you'll have years of great shit to explore.

Or, since you're on the internet, use it. Google your favorite band, and add "blog" at the end. Or, go to allmusic.com and look up a band you like, and browse the similar artists, and then, browse those similar artists, etc..

Or, just download "Take As Needed For Pain" by Eyehategod and be content.

Electronica. A HUGE genre. Check out Phutureprimitive, Pitch Black (NZ), Bluetech (Sines and Singulaties album), Shulman, Entheogenic.

I also love metal. If you don't like heavy music, then chances are metal will not be for you. Groups I dig are, Despised Icon, Heaven Shall Burn, All Shall Perish, Nothingface, Job For A Cowboy, Silent Civilian is FUCKING awesome. Check em out at youtube or their myspace pages. They all have one. Gl on your search for good music. It's hard to find.
