Hey!

 

I've recently been playing around on Every Noise at Once. It's a great tool for finding new music! 

 

It got me thinking about all the unique & interesting genres of music available. Deep Melodic Euro House, Underground Pop Rap, maybe some Anti-Folk. There's loads. And it's mostly great music. 

 

Post some of your favourite modern lesser-known genres. Let's hear all the weird and wonderful sounds the world has to offer!

 

Cheers,

Lee

@Lee Nice! I'd never heard of Every Noise at Once before. How does it work?

Strap yourself in, @Lee.

 

Welcome to the world of schlager music.

 

This is Zellberg Buam, one of the movement's more prominent bands...

It's a genre that's popular in Germany, Scandinavia and the Baltic states. It's a style of popular music which incorporates pop music hooks with traditional instruments from Central Europe and synthesiser lines.

Generally catchy instrumentals, with happy-go-lucky and often sentimental lyrics and vocal melodies; it's certainly crowd-pleasing. 

 

I defy anyone to listen to this and not feel the urge to start a conga line.

Hey @rossi1911!

 

That link doesn't work for me. Have you got another link I can check? :(

 

@Jack Wowee! The feeling to start a conga line is strong. What do you think the office rules are on conga lines?

 

@Leo The rules are easy! Find something that sounds interesting and click it :)

Rule one: You can never break away. Never. Otherwise, you'll be the head of a rival conga line.

 

Rule two: Always follow the kicking formation of 'left-to-right' to the beat.

 

Rule three: Don't break rules one or two. Overall, have fun. It's a conga line!

Here's one traditional Chinese song performed by using Chinese traditional instrument called "erhu."

And this is performed by using another traditional instrument called "guzheng."

Hope it's something new for you to try~

There's an absolute goldmine of Australian underground punk rock out there, and the music scene currently has more momentum than ever before.
The whammy bar guitar work in this song blows my mind...
