smart move...i hope i didnt get your thread alerted and future threads watched!
The Temperance Movement.
A match made in heaven
pop/indie/alternative... I never got what indie was. I use to think that was band on indipendant record labels with a special sound.
I used to think that U2 was the typical indie band in the early years with an "indie-sound". Then they became big but sounded the same to me.
I really like Silversun Pickups. A lot.
My favourite band from late 70s early 80s is Matt Finish
Looks like most of their studio stuff been taken down from YouTube so here's a live clip
Folks are criticizing that “alt/pop/modern music” is too broad a category. I’m just thankful for all the exposure to interesting music that would have otherwise gone under my radar.
The Yellow Pills: Prefill song hunters usually find some good tunes.
Peter Perrett from The Only Ones has inexplicably released two strong solo albums in the last two years (I would have bet money he wouldn't have lived to see the year 2000). The Only Ones discography is patchy but there's some total genius in there (the Peel Sessions is pretty much a best-of), his new stuff stands tall alongside his best.
The Cardigans were an interesting band in that every one of their albums was very different from all the others. Long Gone Before Daylight is a brilliant record that really stands out from the rest, though-
If you've never delved into Midnight Oil's catalog beyond the radio hits, there's a lot to find-
Gutterball was an early '90s "supergroup" of a bunch of guys in other bands, most notably the Dream Syndicate's Steve Wynn and the members of House Of Freaks-
Built to Spill. I’ve been obsessed since I found them 6 months ago. Perfect from Now On is a good start.
Guided By Voices. Huge catalog. New Thousand is a classic.
GREAT thread! Thanks for giving me a bunch of new music to listen to. Here's an oldie that still sounds fresh as can be to me:
I went through and clicked "Like" for pretty much every suggestion here... to thank you all.
So MUCH music, I won't be caught up with this entire thread for years! I'm sure I'll love some of it, and be bored to tears with some of it. But that's ok!
I said pop/indie/alternative, using those descriptors loosely. I like some pop, I like some indie, I like some alternative. And some of each I don't like at all! Same with every other genre of music.
And some music is really hard to put into a particular category.
Mostly, just for THIS thread, I'm not looking for punk, blues. rock, country, folk, metal, jazz, funk, soul, or world beat - even though I like some of all of that, too. *well... I'm really not at all into punk, metal, head-banger, funk, soul, or c-rap.*
I love baroque and music from the "classical" period also. Modern symphonic music not so much.
Here are some pop / indie / alternative (sort-of) artists with tunes that I've really enjoyed:
Pop perfectionist lovers need to explore Jellyfish!
(I would call this pop - GREAT pop! These guys were amazing, like a cross between Queen & The Beatles)
I'd better just go alphabetically from my playlist of what I'd might call pop /indie / alternative (sort of):
Antony & the Johnsons
Arling & Cameron
Alan Kelly w/Kris Drever
OK... one more from my list of "As"... this genre and song is one I would never think I'd enjoy... but somehow I really do like it. Weird, I know. You have to be able to listen past the screams to get to the music.
I'll do the "Bs" in another post.
