Sharing things I think you might like.

Patrick Wolf. Hard times.
These New Puritans. Attack music.
Einstürzende Neubauten. Sabrina.
Prick. Animal.
Have A Nice Life. Bloodhail.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Sabrina is an awesome tune, though I'm partial to German experimentalism. Fun fact, kids. Einstürzende Neubauten often leave the stages they perform on damaged. I guess beating on railings and dragging metal bins about has that sort of effect.

Its a game where every single aspect of it is flawed, but on purpose.

I have that prick album. I bought it when it first came out back in '94 or '93 or so

I picked it up around the same time, they used to play Animal in one of the goth / industrial clubs I would go to when under age.

Have a nice life are self published, the production values are low, but damn it if I don't love me some gloom. The album is like $5 too, bargain.
Parkway Drive - Karma. Lot harder but they're good live and it's always nice to support Aussies. They do the surfing in the video too.
Jonathan Boulet - You're a animal. I'm not a fan of much of his other stuff (lacks testosterone) but this track isn't so bad for something poppy. He's Australian too, so ya know.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Ok, Katatonia are pretty great.

Pop Will Eat Itself - Dos Dedos Mis Amigos. Political themed early industrial from the UK is pretty hard to pass up.
ohGr - luSId. ohGr is a Skinny Puppy side project, tends to be a little more palatable for newer audiences.
Nightwish - Bye Bye Beautiful. HOORAY FOR FINLAND!

Re: Dubious musical taste.

I'm really into Coldplay.

You probably haven't heard of them.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Opeth are pretty nifty.

If you like Numb you'll probably enjoy the following:
Suicide Commando - Bind Torture Kill
Front Line Assembly - Social Enemy

Lordi - Hardrock Hallelujah. Silly costume metal, basically Finland fucking over Eurovision (and I have a massive crush on the girl in the film clip).

@Brian Finifter, you may like:
Lior - This Old Love.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Changing pace, there's not enough love for good old grime.

The Mitchell Brothers - Routine Check.
P Money - Banging Bars.
Lethal Bizzle - Police On My Back.
Lady Sovereign - Random. It's like Chav grime yeah?
Dizzee Rascal - I Love You. Before he jumped the shark and started poncing around with crackers wearing lamé, Dizzee was something special.

I want them to make a lot of money and be famous and make music for me forever, so check them out, subscribe to them, buy their shit, go see them live if you live there and throw money at them because they are awesome.

In a similar vein;

The Books - Beautiful People.
The Books - Take Time.

I'd really like these kids to make pots of money and do more of exactly what they're doing.

Wow, that was a shift. I don't have much of any rap in my collection aside from a couple odd tunes. How's about some lo-fi chip-tune type stuff?
...
lukHash - Tonight

YES!

J-Pop?
Utada Hikaru - Final Distance

J-Pop-Punk?
Ellegarden - Supernova.

J-Punk?
Snail Ramp - B.M.W.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

I still love Dizzee Rascal, seen him live twice.  I think Fix Up, Look Sharp is the best track off that first album, but I dig the hell out of most of Maths and English.  Lady SOV was great for a minute, but hasn't lived up to her potential.

I'll throw in:
Amanda Blank - Something Bigger, Something Better
Bat For Lashes - Moon and Moon (or Horse and I off her first album)
TV on the Radio - all their albums are good, but Return to Cookie Mountain is a good place to start.
Tricky -Pre Millenium Tension remains a favorite.

True Love by ThouShaltNot, perhaps the most eclectic band in the current gothic and dark wave scene. True Love is their foray into dark cabaret complete with swelling vocals.

Not sure how many here have ever listened or heard of the Swedish band Meshuggah. It depends on whether you are into metal in general, what you think of non-musical screaming, and if you can cope with polyrhythms and polymetrics. And if you want your ass kicked really hard.

For any non-believing heathens like myself, this song has quite interesting lyrics, from the POV of a dictatorial god. The drummer Thomas Hakke consistently writes quite interesting lyrics for their songs.

Follow along with the lyrics from here: http://www.darklyrics.com/lyrics/meshug … oss.html#1


And again, they are definitely an aquired taste. I spent a good 2 years with them before I really understood their music fully and could somewhat predict all the syncopated snare hits, weirdly laid-out guitar sequences, etc. Curiously most of their music is in 4/4, but one or more elements rotate around it in various ways causing alot of unpredictability.

I've been in to a lot of third wave ska/ska-punk type stuff as of late. It's fun smile.

Re: Dubious musical taste.

Catch 22 Live is one of my favorite live albums of all time. They cram *so* much fun into that album.

...

So. Uh. Buy it. Asshole?

Anyway, recommended for all third-wave related needs.
