Really stand out Blues and Rock and Roll the old fashioned way. This genre like Jazz is pretty foreign to me and though I have an extensive Chess Records compilation, this is a modern take from a guy in his late 40s
I listen to a podcast called Big Takeover and Jack turned me on to this French Band who obviously are in love with Swervedriver/Adam Franklin.......because the sounds are like shards of polished glass.
shoegaze cover a lot of territory and these sounds are definitely spacey, ethereal, and layered. I myself enjoy early Lush, Swervedriver, Ride, Cocteau Twins///////so this was a pleasant surprise for me.
Italian Electro duo that I am sure I heard on "Communion after Dark" podcast, the male/female band hails from Italy and are top of the line as far their sound. Additional Mixes of "Broken Machinery" fill out the bottom with some wild mixes.
Country for 2017 by band from DC that gets to the roots of that genre. Boxcartel are crystal clear and very down to the level. The songs are not corny, rather they convey the Folksy essence of Americana.
Gothic mostly instrumental moodiness from Russia. It is apparent that they love music and their genre and I do not think it is necessary for most to hear me rattle them off. For fans of goth moodiness.
Lets start with influences like Pet Sounds Beach Boys, Big Star ballads, Joe Pernice, very pop well crafted tunes that are both sad/happy and quite innocent sounding but the lyrics are those of a breakup.
tends towards the exotica and loungy which is no put down from me, in fact it is quite sophisticated and unique. I have to say with so much great music being made....bandcamp makes for a great record store for people looking for a spark amidst a lot of commercial drreck.
modern classical piano violin and a very cinematic sense of flair. this particular track reminds me of the movie "the hunger" soundtrack and that is not a put down.....this track sort of swirls around you.
I am very old school ....like at the tail end of post punk and the ground flood of HC and I have respect and love for the generations since, these Texans rock and this particular song hits home with me about frats/ jocks ( not all of them, but the stereotypical ones suck)
interesting Italian band with a great lead singer. the entire band are spot on and top notch. interesting reach of influences pulling from switchblade symphony to siouxsie and everything in between. they are unique and worth checking into.
