Old vs new musicPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
I find most people around my age listen to old stuff 70s 80s 90s early 2000, To me is, how many times can one listen to the same song over and over again.

I have cone across some new songs, bands that are very good. I tent to focus more on Alternative Rock, Gothic Metal, Modern country music and few other types of genres. Most are not main stream.

Does anyone here listen or know any new genres type of music that you might like yet is not that popular in the main-stream? I like to know what is out there.

Thanks

Most of the new stuff is crap.

I started checking out bands I hadn't before as a source of " new " stuff to listen to .


For example, I was surprised to realize that a lot of 70s Genesis is actually quite good !

Like Chuck, I have discovered tons of old music that is "new" to me. I'm good with listening to the old stuff over and over. Great music endures.

My example of discovery is Minnie Riperton. She's best known for "Loving You" a #1 hit from 1975. I only knew that song from her prior to this year, but I have found and listened to her earliest works and her latest material before she passed away in 1979 at 31 years old.

She started out in a group called the Gems and did a couple of songs under a different name (Andrea Davis). Later she joined a rock/funk band called Rotary Connection (1967-1970). I have several of their albums and she is incredible on them.

Discovering this older stuff is like digging up a treasure. Even the stuff that is somewhat forgotten because it didn't hit big is quite good.

"Discovering this older stuff is like digging up a treasure"



I couldn't agree more !

Until the summer of 2009 I hadn't heard any Yes beyond " Close to the Edge ". Then a friend lent me " Tales of Topographic Oceans " and "Relayer ", while they may not be as strong as the earlier releases it was , again, " new " music to listen to.


It can work in reverse too. I checked out other bands from the past and realized I hadn't missed much, haha


Camel, for example, had a few ok tunes but for the most part....meh

^^^^


Ya 70s Rush was by FAR the best - my 2 faves are Farewell and Hemispheres !

Sadly, when you see them in concert they play mostly 80s stuff = MAJOR chunder ( and lightning ? )

Early Yes is tough to beat , so many classics like Starship Trooper, Yours is no Disgrace, Heart of the Sunrise, And you and I , etc , etc , etc

Have you checked out early Genesis ? Cinema Show, Lamb lies down on Broadway, Supper's Ready...some good stuff if you like prog rock

Yeh Chuck ,,I heard a lot of early Genesis ,the ex was into it ,,heard "lamb lies down " a ton of times ,,sweet

and I kinda like the 80's rush "not all" maybe cause it was the first ones I heard ,,,just recently I found
farewell and hemispheres,, was "working man" on one of those ? first Rush I ever heard ,
I was really into Kansas as well,,a bit different ,,put on a hell of a show in the late 70's

" Working Man " is on their debut album with their original drummer.


Kansas, eh ? That's another band I never really checked out but prolly should. It's all about finding those GEMS that nobody mentions.

I rarely listen to anything mainstream, and hearing the same thing over and over its just boring. So, I have been searching for good stuff my entire life. its a hobby, so here's some stuff....

1. Lounge music, made around 66, its jazz based pop! There is french, Italian, and American lounge music,
check out "Françoise Hardy - Comment te dire adieu"
Lounge encompasses everything from movie music, to airline commercials, to big band, unbelievable stuff
with the real genius songwriters like Lalo Shiffrin, Burt Bacharach, Henry Mancini ect.......you can hear this
on internet radio luxuriamusic.

2. Jungle drum and bass. Made in the golden years 90-92, this is just an infectious beat, sick bass lines, all
kinds of sound, no guitar, no lyrics......for those who can listen out of the box....you can hear this on Koolfm
from london try "pendulum trail of sevens"

3. Shoegazer! Massive sick twisted warped guitar sounds, very alternative. Listen to anything by "Lush" or
"Fukitol by the Stargazer Lillies" also can be heard on internet radio DKFM.....

4. Chuck, good going on Yes and Genesis...I saw tales live and people didn't know wtf, they were expecting roundabout
lol. Try "trick of the tail" by Genesis, also a good album after Gabriel left.
Also you might like some of the more proggressive stuff by Todd Rundgren, like Wizard a true star, Todd Rundgrens utopia
and the epic "Sun Ra".......

5. Garage rock/Girl groups - some unbelievable stuff, its like the 60's mixed with the 70's
check out "crazy by winter" or something by "Fuzz" or the meatbodies.......

Yes, " Trick of the Tail " is a good one . They used to play " Squonk " and " Ripples " on FM radio which intrigued me enough to go buy it. But, for some reason, I didn't check out their earlier stuff at that point. I mean, their 80s poppy crap made me ....dubious ?

So it seems no-one is into any of the new music that's out there.

NYC - like I said, the Garage rock on kxlu and the shoegazer stuff ondkfm is as new as it gets, these bands are touring now.
There are probably a million great metal bands these days, but I'm done with anyone screaming....unless its cradle of filth, which i love.

Chuck - prog rock was a big part of my diet, starting off as a crimson fan. Also, an epic of all time is "pawnhearts" by Van der graaf generator.

I like " In the Court of the Crimson King " a lot ( the whole album ), but everything after that didn't really do it for me. That song Lizard's tongue in aspic or whatever it's called, haha....kinda dull..... Starless and Red are pretty cool and some of the " newer " stuff like Matte Kudesai and frame by frame

Genesis turned to commercial crap the moment that bottom most orifice Collins got involved!

Oh come on Trevork, you can't tell me the late 70s Genesis is anywhere near as poppy as the 80s air pollution

I was doing a search on POF for music when I ran across this thread, so I too was search for recommendations. I was making a play list for YouTube to video cast to my TV tonight, and looking for a few new tunes to add to the queue.

Music that is "new" and I like is pretty mainstream. After all, if is not that popular, 90% of the time it's for good reason, it just isn't all that good.

I like a lot of Pitbull music, he is hip hop reggaeton pop and rap. He does a lot of feat work, featuring many other artists he works with. Like the track Fireball, Rain on me, quite a few others.

I like a lot of David Bowie, but he isn’t “new’.

Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, twenty one-pilots.

I like some RAP, EAZY-E-like gimme dat nut, Akinyele - Put It in Your Mouth, Lil' Kim – How Many Licks?

I used to really like Eloy “silent cries and mighty echoes”, they are German progressive rock band, most don’t know that group. I still like them, but I don’t play them as much as I used to.

I like to mix really old music with new, for instance I like Gershwin and Ella Fitzgerald, wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald Gordon lightfoot, stuff like that.

One way I had gotten a lot of music is to copy someone's entire ITunes library. Or my next-door neighbor was a tobacco farmer and truck driver, I copied his entire music library, a whole lot of blue grass, country, really old fiddle music.

I've been listening to some Marvin Gaye lately. I'm really digging his earliest stuff like this 1965 appearance on Hullabaloo...

Late 80s/early 90s was my fave era with the moving away from 80s CRAP with bands like Guns n Roses, Jane's Addiction and Faith No More leading to the Grunge era with bands like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam , Stone Temple Pilots, Smashing Pumpkins, My Sister's Machine , etc

I recently ran across a Burt Bacharach special on PBS during a fund drive. It as interesting just how prolific he and Hal David were. Incredibly talented team.

Marilyn McCoo was a co-host of the fund drive portion of this special and she looked stunning!
