New Genres You've Discovered

Music Fan

I'm curious what obscure/new genres people have come across in their listening. I can never pinpoint exactly what genre some of my music is, and it starts me down a music genre rabbit hole.

 

I recently discovered "deep slacker jazz" coined by the band Soul Coughing and their hit song, Super Bon Bon:

Another one I love is Electro Swing, which DJ Parov Stelar made a decent Spotify playlist of: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/1U9xLxFpXyyH14rLdtBHXQ?si=ZQ9PYqQbSzOQSJJe68OvUw

Great idea, @Mahumjamal! “Deep slacker jazz” has a funny name, similar to one of my favorite genres, “stoner rock,” haha 😀

 

One genre that has been relatively new to my ears this year is post-rock/metal. It’s not a relatively new genre (the term “post-rock” has been used since the 90’s). However, post-rock/metal is a genre that I have only recently started enjoying more frequently, and I thought I’d share a few representative tracks of this genre that I’ve been listening to this year:

There are 2-3 (rap, which I hate but used to like; death metal; meme music (if it counts))genres I’ve discovered in the last 1-2 years.

I never even try to reckon genres - i still call the electronic music i enjoy "dubstep," though spotify clarified at th'end of last year that most of my time was spent with "brostep," a specific example of which i cannot give. I'll share some that i do know though, gleaned from artist page.

 

nu-metalcore

swancore

jazz-metal (from Germany)

😂Wow tynon_12221, that last one is the definition of a wild card. Never heard of swancore, or any of those genres. It blows my mind how specific each category gets. Jazz-metal is great, I might have to make that my next deep dive.

@DBoon Ohh I love this. Reminds me of 2000s music and alternative rock in general, thinking Snow Patrol, Lifehouse etc. But this is different, I see that. I dig it.

why has spotify blocking my album Sludge 'A Shade of Truth" when i paid tunecore all the money to put it on spotify? Is spotify a rip off? Spotify is ripping people off, ripping the musicians off who they are, musicians are the ones that spotify is really making money off not the listeners, im calling prime time media on this**bleep**

Indeed! And thats why i dont try, so specific, if you think youve got it, some pedant comes along and nasally says "actuallyyy, that is this because this has those while that dont." Good music is, period. 

 

What is this?

not blues despite the callout. not instrumental because samples. not electronic because analog instruments. Is good though lol
