I'm tired of rock

I just need a little break from rock music..and singer/songwriter stuff. There's a whole other world of music out there I'm missing out on

give me ideas.

I feel myself being drawn into electronica
been listening to Royksopp ...Melody A.M. is very good!

boards of canada are scratching my itch as well

I want to get some chem bros and underworld as well...for the big beats

any suggestions?

doesn't have to be in this genre, really, just something very different

i'm getting back into the rock. not that i ever left it, but i mean the loud guitar type rock.

as for electronica, try some mouse on mars. i downloaded a bit of their stuff from amazon and it's pretty cool. i also highly recommend some saint etienne, although i don't know how you'll take to them.

KLEZMER!

It is a hot new genre. The genre even has a website and forum like U2 and Interference. Check it out, and look for my posts (of course I use the same "zonelistener" nick )

I got into Klezmer (it is Jewish wedding music) just as the scene was heating up about a year and a half ago. I would check it out if I were you - especially as a musician. Similar to the brit rock genre, they have some pretty big European festivals.



I might joke, but I do find the music enjoyable.

Not 'electronica' per se, I guess, but try checking out UNKLE (of 'Rabbit in your headlights' fame). I think they have something new out.

I went through a long long period of being quite sick of rock before Sleater-Kinney, of all bands, rekindled the fires again. Now I'm a regular gun-totin' weed-smokin' rawk fan again. Sort of.

Of course hard rock is to be distinguished from rock and roll. The former is almost always a big fat wank, in my opinion. As in, how hard is 'hard'? How hard does one have to be before one tips over into 'metal', and starts singing about the number 666 and oceans of fire, or something?

Float like a feather, sting like a ton of bricks.

If you're going the way of the Chemical Brothers, Surrender is probably their best, in my opinion....

I love "trip hop" - anything by Portishead, Massive Attack, Tricky and Lamb.

I'm currently listening to "Yol Bolsin" by Sevara Nazarkhan, who is an Uzbeki singer teaming up with the modern producer whose name I forgot. Her voice is incredible, and the album is a really gorgeous and subtle blend of modern beats with traditional Uzbeki songs and instruments.

Beth Gibbons' "Out of Season" is great, too.
