    Arctic Monkeys? Not really rock. Jamie T? Also not really rock. Kind of a hybrid of indie and hip-hop. Pretty British though, both of them.

    That is gooood! I think Skinny Love is still my favourite, though.

    Have you heard Justin Vernon's other stuff? From his time in DeYarmond Edison? They're good! And Bon Iver's "Lovin's For Fools" with Sarah Siskind is good, too.
    Thanks I'll give them a listen.

    Yay!

    He's just brought out a new album with a new band "Volcano Choir", too. I've not listened to it that much, but it seems okay.

    Equilibrium.
    I think they count as metal...

    Great band though.

    Try Amanda Palmer from the Dresden Doll's solo album too.
    I second this.

    For folksy-type stuff, try Regina Spektor, Dar Williams, Jason Webley, Sufjan Stevens, or Fleet Foxes.

    For electronic, VNV Nation (relaxed or dance tracks), Symphony X, and Wolfsheim are all good

    For instrumental pieces, Bond and Vanessa Mae are both very good.

    For any more reccommendation, have a look at my blog (listed as my website, link under my username). It's all about discovering new types of music.

    Non-Rock? I'm sorry, but that must be the hardest way of describing music; saying what it isn't...

    Nick Drake, folk music. Doesnt matter which album you get, all 3 are as near to perfect as music gets, although I prefer Bryter Layter, its a little more jazzy than the other two.

    Give The Empyrean by John Frusciante (Chilis guitarist) a go, its kind of electronic-ish, and an excellent album.

    The Grand Wazoo and Hot Rats by Frank Zappa, or Heavy Weather by Weather Report (listen to Birdland) for some jazz fusion. Child Is Father To The Man by Blood, Sweat and Tears is also good, listen to I'll Love You More than You'll Ever Know.

    Hunky Dory by Bowie is a classic, as is Harvest by Neil Young.

    That should get you set for a while!

    How about some folk (/folk rock)? Roy Harper is pretty :awesome:
    Never heard of, but will check out.

    (Original post by xeonman9000)
    Dummy.

    Try Amanda Palmer from the Dresden Doll's solo album too.
    Thank you, Sir. I had no idea she had released a solo album. I never took the chance I had to get further into The Dresden Dolls - as in, I never went beyond the few songs I like. I just checked that out on Spotify and I like it, so will get the album.

    (Original post by Gueirguiy)
    Roxy Music?
    (Original post by acid8000)
    Protection is probably my favourite Massive Attack album. You might like Friendly Fires too.
    Nope, not my thing.

    I'll give Protection a listen if I like Mezzanine.

    (Original post by Altocirrus)
    Mezzanine- it's got more of a rock sound than the others so probably easiest to get into. Blue Lines is a classic, and would be a good place to start too.
    Thanks.

    (Original post by Devel)
    Prince
    Not so sure about this one. :\

    (Original post by The_Right_Ordinary)
    Apostrophe by Frank Zappa
    (Original post by marcusmerehay)


    :coma:

    Will get those, for sure.

    (Original post by [Shea])
    Death Cab For Cutie are worth a listen. Patrick Wolf?
    I like Death Cab for Cutie, but thanks. I will also check this Patrick Wolf fellow's music and see if I like.

    (Original post by cowsforsale)
    Deadmau5
    More specifically? I remember quite liking a song I heard on Spotify.

    (Original post by Sammydemon)
    Equilibrium.
    Again, be more specific/elaborate, please.

    (Original post by Nfixlol)
    Will get that too. I like, thanks. :yes:

    (Original post by JessicaW)
    I approve. :coma:


    Listen to Bon Iver.

    Ooh, and The La's, also.
    Nope, I don't like Bon Iver. At all.

    I don't particularly like The La's either. I like There She Goes though.

    Nope. :\

    ...but Jamie T sounds well cool.

    Both bands seem good but not the kind of thing I'm after right now. Thanks anyhow.

    I think that's my favourite post in the thread. :p:

    Thank you very much. :d

    Well, not really. I'm just asking for music in various forms. :p:

    Pat Metheny (or Pat Metheny Group, whichever), Brad Mehldau, Gerry Mulligan, Sammy Davis Jr, Schubert and Ockeghem if you've got the time.
    Another one to add, Allan Holdsworth's brilliant, give 'The Sixteen Men of Tain' or 'Texas' a listen (Spotify preferably, wait for the guitar solos in them before leaving).

    Why? If you want to get music from different genres you can't go wrong with Prince.

    Agreed. :coma:


    OP, you should listen to Idlewild. Aaand, if you're willing to listen to some older jazzy/bluesy stuff, go for Louis Jordan or Ray Charles. Ooh, The Temptations are good, also.

    I'm not sure I'm quite ready for that yet. :p:

    Seriously, I'm not really used to that kind of music. Which album would you recommend though, I will get it later? Prince?
