Your Recent Music Discoveries?

So, before I got with our lass, I used to laugh at anyone who paid for Spotify, all because I thought it was just like Youtube, where you had to know what you wanted to listen to and whatnot, thus pointless. It wasn't till she gave me access to her account that I now actually can't get off the app, and thus recently I've discovered so much music that I wouldn't even have ever heard of, or even given a chance due to the genre it was in. Growing up, I've changed genres so much that my music taste has become so diverse, but recently I've started noticing that I like rock and heavy metal, something that a few years ago I couldn't even bear the thought of listening to. I love the playlists on Spotify, and have to say that in the last month or so I've discovered literally hundreds of new artists that I've grown to really like.

 

Anyway, it's thanks to Spotify that I came across a new band called FANGCLUB. It was a song called

that instantly hooked me, and many have said how much they sound like a pre-bleach era Nirvana, and I agree, and it's more noticeable when they play live. Their whole album is amazing, and NME even listed it as an album that fans of Foo Fighters would love. Saw them first live on a discovery stage at Bingley Music Live, a smallish gig in my hometown, and then went a month later to see them at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds, and they were fantastic live, and even made my day in how genuine the guys were when the gig had finished, going so far as to sign my plastic cup and CD, and sharing a pint with me.

 

Genuinely predict big things for this band.

 

Another band I've recently got in to is Twin Atlantic, another band hailing from the same place as Fangclub, and another band on the top of my gig wishlist, along with Deaf Havana, another band I recently got in to.

I was writing a research paper on goth, and along the way I discovered a couple of obscure-ish darkwave bands, Boy Harsher, and Cold Cave.

 

 

 

CC sound like Joy Division and Depeche Mode's lovechild, and BH sound like Siouxsie and the Banshees gone electro. I immediately f*cking loved them.

Good time for this thread to be dredged back up (thanks @Femme Fatale), because I went on a bit of a journey of musical discovery these past few days. I'm always trying to learn about the music I know and find new pieces to listen to, of course, it's only been accelerated. Might as well share it here, with a bit more context than some of the other threads allow.

 

So, I've long known that much of the original Fallout soundtrack (of which I'm a huge fan) copies Aphex Twin tracks of the time (see Fallout's Metallic Monks and Aphex Twin's Tassels), but I discovered a new instance in Brian Eno's Alternative 3, which is almost dead-on the first 'original' piece of music a player will hear in the original Fallout, Vats of Goo. This spurred me on to look at other music in games that came from elsewhere, and having a long-held curiosity over the sample shared by Minecraft's Chirp and LittleBigPlanet's The Orb of Dreamers, I set about chasing it down. Happy to say, I found the origin - an amateur learner's keyboard from the 1970s called the "Optigan" - in good company. Somebody has been preserving it and all of its cheesy, low fidelity backing music for everybody living past 1980, and it seems like it's not going to be forgotten any time soon, as a recent Google commercial used another sample from its library. After listening along to some of the Optigan's applications, I found myself drifting through some classic (but new to me) easy listening music from the 1960s, the classic Seeburg background music libraries, and on to the slightly more familiar (and quickly popularizing) 1980s Japanese scene. Paying tribute to a few citypop staples, I stumbled over the final new album of the sojourn, this eclectic mix of powerful short pieces intended for use in commercials. I think it's fair to say I won't be getting bored of my listening roster any time soon.

The Twilight Sad. Really good post-punk revival band; they even managed to win the respect of legendary post-punk icons like Robert Smith.

I spent a entire afternoon just checking out new music and all that, and The Front Bottoms were one of the bands I've really been getting into, them and Bloc Party.

Rimfrost.

 

 

Thought I'd basically heard every take on black metal...except maybe blended with 80s traditional heavy metal.

Been meaning to give these a proper listen since I came across 'There's A Girl In The Corner', so thank you for the reminder.

my youtube algorithm recently turned me onto this new wave of African music.

it starts out traditional af. like you're sitting under a tree in the savannah sun. then it ends up drenched in modern distorted electricity. her guitar-playing-face is beautiful, to boot.

 

all around awesome sauce.

THE STRUTS. 

The lead-singer, Luke Spiller, is a very talented musician and also quite a character. He's full of charisma and stage presence. Reminds me of some of the best rock frontmens from the '70s era.

I just discovered this song and It’s just become my favourite Misfits song. Its crazy because I’ve been a fan of the band for years and now just came across this song.

San Scout

 

under the radar, very talented, and genre bending. Listened to a few of their tracks last night on repeat while playing dominoes in St Denis for hours. Made for a great night.

Wish I’d more thumbs. 
It was like one part “Get it Up”, two parts Siegfried Schwab, and the obligatory 70’s horns, strings, and electronics setting the baseline for good measure. Tapped my foot, smiled, and enjoyed it throughout. What an encompassing 70’s track...

 

 

Some new promising rock band I discovered today

Thanks to the Fallout games they've introduced me to Bob Crosby. His song "Happy Times" really resonated with me, it makes me feel hopeful that the future will hold better things. That feeling of hope is something I think a lot of us need in these times.

Anyway here's the song.

I just unearthed this post hardcore/electronic band from Denmark, they have significant similarities to the metalcore band Issues.
