Guessing Genre?

Music Fan

So im actually sorting some of my music by genre. To find more of the songs i like i try to get into the small sub-genres (like post grunge f.e.) but since im kinda new to that im getting confused. So im just asking here which song is which genre and then i can use that info to go on with the others.

Lost Within - Xplore Yesterday

Light for the Deadvine - People in Planes

I am Weightless - Septembre

This Night - Black Lab

Retreat! Retreat! - 65daysofStatic

That's true, indie refers to independent labels or music released independently.

 

The best method I've found for identificating song's genre is finding the song or the artist on last.fm. It may not be helpful at all times (especially not when the song or artist is very little-known), but it may give a pretty good clue.
The tags are user-added so they may not be completely correct. 🙂

 

Have a nice day!

I wasn't really familiar with these songs, but I searched them on Google and they are putting them under the Alternative/Indie music genre. Sorry if that's not accurate though!

Yea but thats one problem i have, like indie just means independet after what i read so basically any type of music can be like that if i understand that right but i try to sort the music after the actual music/playtype or stilistic sound not after a mood (like dark), nor a region or how many people know it.

For Retreat! Retreat! i got the sub-genre Post-Rock now.

Indie was used to describe independent bands but now it has developed more into a genre. Now I don't know really how to describe it but it's often described/mixed up with alternative. Also you can have subgenes within it so indie rock/pop ect. This probably wasn't any help but meh 🙂
