    And everything you listen to has to be ''not in'', I presume?

    Back to the question, here are some artists (some are a bit predictable but they're pretty good for travelling!)

    Paolo Nutini
    Jack Johnson
    Joseph Arthur
    Air Traffic
    Badly Drawn Boy
    Bon Iver
    Bedouin Soundclash
    The Coral
    Damien Rice
    Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly
    Groove Armada's more chill-out stuff (hands of time, my friend etc..)
    Jeff Buckley
    Jose Gonzalez
    Laura Marling
    RHCP
    Sebastien Tellier

    I've been on a few long travels lately myself and this is pretty much my playlist :P
    I just prefer music created via, well, creativity rather than as a product.

    I agree, but why the hell did you post if your tastes differ so much from the OP?

    The Polyamorous Affair is a band i've recently taken a liking to, Ladytron, the Cure, Depeche Mode, 80's Matchbox B-line disaster, The Dresden Dolls, Howling Bells, Empire of the Sun is the more mainstream stuff I can think of.

    I doubt you'd like any of the other stuff I listen to.

    Bombay Bicycle Club
    City and Colour
    Cage the Elephant
    John Mayer ('Daughters' is probably the nicest song I have heard in aaaaaages)
    Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly (Very acoustic guitar-y. Quite repetitive and a bit strange sometimes but lovely nonetheless)

    Haha and metal and punk is via creativity? Abstract nonsense more like IMO. I don't see how any music should be regarded as a "product" just because you don't like it, or just because it's popular. Your whole argument is flawed beyond comprehension. Seems to me you're just a disgruntled ignorant who wants to rant and throw around accusations and stupidly false statements every time someone disagrees with your music taste.

    If it makes you feel rather unique and special, having such a narrow and defined taste, then I do understand. Everyone's got to get their self-love out of somewhere, right?

    Lol, and you think heavy metal isn't devoid of coherence or meaning?

    I knew all along your silly rant on this thread was due to my dismissal of heavy metal. :rolleyes: It's just a genre I don't like, it makes my ears bleed. I don't see why you care about that so much as to ridicule my taste and artists mentioned.
    Some metal is very meaningful, I admit most of what you've been exposed to probably isnt. It has the same problem as everyting else of the popular stuff being garbage. If you have a spare moment at any point check out Tool or Opeth or something like that (might want to steer clear of Opeth if you really can't take teh growls). Possibly even 'Light of Day, Day of Darkness' by Green Carnation. Failing that everyone I've ever shown it likes 'Traced in Air' by Cynic.

    Anyway, I digress.

    I third the Portishead/Massive Attack/ Everything But The Girl mentions from earlier.

    Also:

    Tori Amos
    Natalie Merchant
    Porcupine Tree (get 'In Absentia' its amazing)
    Aphex Twin
    A Perfect Circle
    Kyuss
    Fu Manchu
    Faith No More.

    Are the lighter sides of what I've been listening to recently.

    Wow, you're not the smartest, are you? You must understand the difference between over-produced, major record-label puppets and people who actually like and create their own music, right?

    This thread isn't about how the music is created, or where it's sourced from. I like the artists and music I listed because I like the music, and how it sounds, it's beautiful and rhythmic to me; don't you understand? I really couldn't give a **** about the mentality of the artists when the music was created, it's all nonsense and irrelevant to me. I don't see why I should force a change in my music taste because because of such silly sentiments as these.

    I do get what you're saying about the record label puppets, but it's more associated with the new crappy hip-hop artists more than anything else. I actually like David Grays voice, and I like his soothing songs, I don't care how mass-pleasing his music is, because I'm not one of the sheep who follows everyone else. If you disagree then it's totally okay, just don't go around blaming me for stupid irrelevant things, just because your taste is different.

    But it's designed for you to like it. It's designed to be pleasing... think of it as fast-food: packed full of preservatives and sugars to make it taste nice but honestly, it's just damaging you in the long run.
