I'm gonna sound edgy saying this, but I'm serious when I say that I like:
Classical, Symphonic metal, Thrash metal, Power metal, Heavy metal in general. Alternative rock, pop rock, Hard rock, Goth rock, Punk-rock, post-punk, Post-grunge.
Old school hip-hop, Underground hip-hop. Japanese hip-hop, "J-Urban". R&B, Visual kei, J-pop, K-pop, pop.
Synthpop, Futurepop, Electronic dance music, Electronic body music, electro-Industrial and all that other neat Cyber-goth muzik.
Ambiance, New Age, folk. Instrumental/acoustic, Jazz, Big band, Electro-swing, Downtempo, showtunes.
So pretty much almost anything, really. I’m a classical musician but I’ve learned to appreciate many forms of music, and have a wide ' 'taste' for it as a result.
Lol that's okay anon; I got a chuckle out of that.
Thanks; yeah, I think all the fusion genres, sampling, backing tracks, mixes and whatnot that people do with classical music help me to discover stuff that I never thought I'd be into.
>also, no one at band camp would've tagged me as the metalhead>or well more like orchestra in my case lol>I was the Asian kid that played the piano and was into vidya game music, kek
video game music is cool, have you seen deadmou5's version of the castlevania theme?
i want his studio

LOL oh my gosh, yes! Music anon from the JNIG thread. Thank you for makin this. I've been listening to Bullets and Revenge lately. I seriously loved those albums so much in my late teen years and early 20s.
I don't know why, but going back 10 years is just really a thing right now for me. I'm also into Nick Cave and the bad seeds, Interpol and early Bowie. >>44458
Damn, Helena is still my favorite video next to Vampires will never hurt you.
I love you. I've actually been listening to Bullets and Revenge a lot lately as well, and I think I've been able to seek out and download every rare/hidden/demo track I've been able to find from that era and before as well, and those are my favorites.
I also really like LeATHERMOUTH (fuk yea) and DeathSpells, but I can't find DS's music anywhere. I just picked up Gerard's Hesitant Alien album and I gotta say.. I honestly enjoy it a lot. (some days I feel like frank and then some days i feel like gerard, ya feel me?)
Other than being a giant emo loser, I'm mostly into bands that aren't really bands anymore. I really like The Misfits, Choking Victim/Leftover Crack, the Dead Kennedys, the Velvet Underground, Sonic Youth, AJJ, the Animals, JHatFT, Joy Division, Black Sabbath, Die Antvord, Danny Brown, Triple Six Mafia, Grimes, the Raincoats, Salem
I'm honestly sorry for my shit music taste. I'm desperately trying to hang onto the days when I would drink 40s and go to underground punk shows with my brothers.
>going through this thread to find new things to listen to
Here's something /mu/ somehow snuck onto my ipod.
Thanks for this. I've been looking for new music to listen to when I go running.
Here is some music I've been getting into. The uploader has similar stuff on his page.
I gotta listen to LeATHERMOUTH still. Frank is such an amazing fucking guitarist. Honestly, the entire band is so talented, which is why I can listen to "Honey, this mirror isn't big enough for the two of us" over and over. Frank and Ray's guitars together are so golden. I heard some of Hesitant Alien and I don't really like it, then again, it took Black Parade YEARS to grow on me, where as Danger Days was immediate.
I'll check out LeATHERMOUTH later on tonight. And jfc, this entire list. Joy Division is still one of my favorite bands out there. Same with Velvet Underground. Just like MCR, No one really captured that same tone as Joy division, especially after the vocalist's death. A lot of these tragic bands have that sound that once put out there during their golden era, cannot be recaptured.
Anon, your taste in music is very similar to mine and I have no shame in saying I'm turning 30 at the end of the year and it's kind of awesome. I was able to get into a lot of good fucking music younger.
This is the music thread, so I don't think it would be an issue at all dropping my email in the box in case you want to go into more depth and not just have us go too back and forth in the same thread. I'm loving this thread so far.
Gonna guess one of you was the anon that told me I had good music taste from the Jnig thread, hurr.>chin-hands
Aside from the Misfits, Dead Kennedys omg yes. And Joy Division oh lawd. I'm also the anon earlier in this thread that said I'll !listen to pretty much anything >>44453
so yes…love me some punk and all that post-punk goodness.
Sex Pistols, Ramones, Black Flag, AFI (especially the early stuff), Bad Religion, Bad Brains, NOFX, The Offspring, The Exploited, D.R.I., Suicidal Tendencies (love the crossover Thrash stuff, too). Post-pink stuff like goth rock bands: Joy Divison, Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie and the Banshees, and then punk veering off to more experimental grounds… Like early Industrial (Front 242, Front Line Assembly, etc.)
>alsp love music history too, btw,. Very fascinating to see how genres evolve.

Angry Johny and the Killbillies
(This is the song that got me into them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6Q65yNStcM
and here's one that reminds me of the walking dead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opPVh9xwF5k
Those Poor Bastards is my overall favorite. It's hard to pick just one. Every album and song is so unique, so here are some catchy ones:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mM16I_HADe4
(This one is harder rock)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSXfHaWQk8k
I like Sons of Perdition a lot too, but they're probably a little too.. I don't know, lyrical and religious for here, so here is a neat little urban legend song by them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQTLTKAIKvw
this is amazing, thank you

Alcest <3 The most relaxing and beautiful music.
Whoever posted this, I love you so much.
As for "relaxing metal music" (lol)I reiterate with this:

I love Cynic ;-; You might like this. It's really chill, but in a different kind of way. For some reason it reminds me of the bubonic plague paintingshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBfnWZkW7sE>>46267
Stargazer is the best Rainbow song aside from Catch the Rainbow. I really wish Rainbow got more attention as far as classic rock goes.

What the shit. I was just looking at bleeding heart doves for sale.
Great taste in music and birds.
I dip into pretty much every genre, except I cannot into jazz. Sorry, dad…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g30k0wOIBi4
Jay Munly is really fucking weird, but I'm infatuated with him and his music. I'm a big fan of gothic country (music, lit, film, whatever), so shoutout to the anon above who mentioned Those Poor Bastards.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obAtn6I5rbY
My parents got married to Talking Heads, I grew up listening to them, and David Byrne is still one of my all-time favorites. "Stop Making Sense" is, IMO, the ultimate concert movie. Byrne is nuts and I love it.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yp7Dz4bh5UE
Metal of the sludge/doom variety (and "atmospheric sludge metal" ~omg don't you DARE call it post-metal you plebs~) is probably my favorite genre in general. I can't decide on a favorite, but Neurosis is a classic.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEiRKpflgQA
Earth is my go-to "I'm fucking stoned and I want music to massage my brain and make me feel tingly" band. It's repetitive, but it's nice to fall asleep to, especially when high.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvNUFc2V1nY
Menace Ruine is kind of drone-y, too. Female vocals.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBJfHuyGpsI
I love Pallbearer. It's doom metal with clean vocals, so I guess it's probably "pussy metal," but whatever. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esAK9sKeArw&list=PL3B4AA893625B9969
40 Watt Sun and Warning are also in the same vein of doom metal with clean, heartbreakingly sorrowful vocals.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oxclr8mD7lE
Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats is fun shit - stoner rock/heavy psych/doom.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEY9GJAm8bAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVAxUMuhz98
St. Vincent is my guilty pleasure that I'm not sure if I should feel guilty about. I've got a bit of a crush on Annie Clark.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vrbz8ZgP9O4
Also, I don't know a word of Swedish, but I love Garmarna. It's fucking beautiful neo-folk.

Some Japanese bands I know are Airmail, Cruyff in the Bedroom, Clams, Sugarplant.
Snow (not snow again) by Coaltar of the Deepers is up that alley too.

You should try Alcest. They are fantastic french band that has mostly shoegaze/dreampop influences. https://youtu.be/r7CS2gCQo4Y
File: 1448770070582.jpg (506.9 KB, 2000x2000, 8gODDGb.jpg)
Astrobrite, The Ecstasy of Saint Theresa, A Sunny Day in Glasgow are some of my favorites.
Cocteau Twins are essential dream pop listening if you haven't listened to them already. Long Season by Fishmans is also really amazing.
Here's a handy chart if you want more.
Dude, no one cares about what you hate and no one gives a fuck what you think about other people listening to bands you hate either.
Either post links showing off your ~superior~ music taste or stop shitting up the music sharing thread with your bullshit, yeah?
I listen to Leftover Crack and other 'shitty' punk because it reminds me of the time when my brother was still around. It reminds me of someone who isn't there anymore. So judge me all you want for that.
Oh, and only pricks with shit taste call other people 'posers,' js.
Anons, if you love something, don't let someone else try to take it away from you because they are insecure with themselves. If you feel passionate about something, run with it. Don't let other people make you feel sorry for what you care about.

Oh wow, I've never met another JoJ fan, irl or online. I never understood their classification as riot grrl because the subject matter in most of their songs isn't political enough. from the footage of live performances I've seen though they did a lot of things for shock value so maybe that's why?
anyways humid teenage mediocrity is a phrase that i think described my later high school years pretty well, growing up in the south and spending summer afternoons avoiding my parents so i could listen to music that would offend them

i don't even want to think about the shit ethan kath & ~edith~ are going to churn out now they've started touring again. crystal castles died in 2014, man.
also 'stop making sense' is one of my favourite albums - that version of 'girlfriend is better', though:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9r7X3f2gFz4
that dark haired guy, the singer, is fairly good looking, thanks for sharing
also what is that thing he's holding? it looks like a guitar but doesn't have any of the tuning pegs
File: 1460825784837.jpg (172.98 KB, 333x500, 5618838857_a2bff02292.jpg)
That's because it's not really a guitar, it's a midi controller shaped like a guitar called a Ztar
omg, thank you for reminding me of them!
haven't grooved so much in a long time!
And fuck, shit like, I remember my older "cool" sister listening to this shit at max volume in her bedroom, the CD's no doubt nicked from HMV earlier on in the week.
God, it was such trash and I loved it.
Versailles is my absolute favorite band.
I'm still, unfortunately, a vkei fag. but, like, probably more mainstream stuff (Gazette, Kaya, D, d'espairsray… stuff like that.)
I will never pass up an opportunity to share these guys. Love them or hate them, I absolutely adore them and feel like they're really doing something special with music. I've harbored a little obsession with them for several years now.>>86886
Oh man, I used to love these guys. I remember how upset I was when they split off into Jupiter and Kamijo's solo act.
I've been following Death Grips for a while and this song makes me want to drive dangerously or destroy property>>48622
Thank you so much for reminding me, I forgot all about them. I miss the spooky feelings I got listening to it. >>86862
You also have reminded me of a band I used to listen to a lot. I have an old VHS of them just fucking shit up in a junk yard and making mouth noises.

How do you guys feel about White Hinterland? Does anyone know who I'm talking about or should I take this to /mu/?
Fuck I remember doing this for even a single 1 min 30 seconds on hard would have me sweating and panting like a pig after, DDR/Stepmania is SUCH good cardio.
This was another of my favourite tracks.
I'll listen to anything I like. I primarily listen to post-punk, industrial, 80s/90s ebm, and new wave. But lately I've been really into hip hop. Can anyone recommend me artists like Dälek? Or Japanese post-punk?>>86862
Bless you, anon. Neubaten is my favorite. I have the original pressing of both halber mensch and haus der lüge.
Oh man, I've just been getting into Siekiera! Fantastic taste. I absolutely love anxious/dark stuff like post-punk, early goth rock and coldwave.
Do you like the Sound? This song is so beautiful and bittersweet.
As for Dalek… difficult to say, I haven't found anyone quite like them. Maybe try Food for Animals, they have an interesting industrial sound.
Here's a neat 80s Japanese goth band that you might like:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VadYgOuQzhY
Ok, one more thing I really wanted to share.
This is from a fantastic compilation of Turkish, Japanese and Chinese folk songs called "International Sad Hits". Incredibly emotional.

The rare Rolling Stones film "cocksucker blues" is going to be screened in full soon, but parts are on youtube. By god does is shatter the illusion that Rock N Roll is glamourous and fun. We see Keith being shot up by a groupie and then spending the rest of that video clip passing out on another groupie and getting his back rubbed.
Seeing that film and the toll they were all taking on their bodies it's surprising how good shape they all still are in!
File: 1469503889437.png (1.67 MB, 3055x2320, RedFlagMusicForGirls1.png)
oh man, my all-time favorite album on the first line?
To be fair though, Tallahasse probably isn't their objective best. All Hail West Texas seems to be the most popular. throw in some older folk, modest mouse, silver jews, califone, and lana del rey and this chart would pretty much cover my tastes. I wish more guys were turned off by it tbh familia, most either don't know what the hell I'm talking about or instantly label me a "zomg so cool girl!1!!", as if my stuff isn't just completely accessible music that's not even that experimental or obscure.
I honestly don't get what compels people to care enough about the music taste of others to make charts like this. How does what sort of music they listen to say anything about their personality, assuming they're not people that just make music their ENTIRE personality.
Every time I see one of these I always just assume it's that the person got dumped by a girl who listened to these bands.
Sorry but I'm confused on what that graph is supposed to express.
Could you enlighten me?
It's a "red flag" chart of music tastes for women, so it's implying that if you listen to those bands, you're somehow trouble or crazy or will be a poor person and should be avoided.>>105867
It really is the mentality of a 16 year old, it's judging a book not just by it's cover, but by a tiny section of the cover that you can't even tell what's going on in the rest of it, then calling yourself enlightened and intelligent for doing so.
Half of them make no sense honestly, like, how is listening to OK Computer or In Utero somehow a red flag? Same goes for Blue Album. I think you'd struggle to find people that don't enjoy stuff from those albums honest, there's a reason they're considered to pretty much define alt rock in the 90's.
The Elliot Smith one is hilarious though, because figure 8 is way more cheerful than some of his other stuff.
I'm convinced they just took things that have any themes of angst at all and just shoved it on the list.>>105877
I honestly find it hilarious that people act like Radiohead is somehow underground, or that it's been that way for decades now. They pretty much always sell out venues, and any music related media goes nuts whenever they release anything new. Their most recent album was in the top 10 in like 20 different countries, and it's their 6th album that's done that. Yet everyone seems to think that they're some under-rated gem that only their community REALLY likes.
The hypocrisy is pretty impressive though, you're right. It's a sign of good taste when /mu/ posters put up lists like that, but if other people do, it's a red flag and you should avoid them.
Hotline Miami Soundtrack?
The Beach Boys?
i feel like this must be some kind of joke, because nearly most of these albums are pretty much entry-level /mu/core shit if not "entry-level-to-serious-music-listening" shit and then random video game soundtracks
anyway, i finally watched the movie Love & Mercy with Paul Dano & John Cusack as Brian Wilson, who's one of my musical heroes, and I liked it a lot more than I thought.
does anyone else here like the beach boys? i feel like everyone enjoys at least one of their old "formula" girls-cars-surfing singles, or at least has some kind of childhood memory attached to one of them, but i think i'll always find this gorgeous https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ybvruzd3XE0
/mu/ in itself is a joke. Or at least a congregation of immature retards who think that listening to ~avant garde~ shit like rabbi chants with screamo playing in the background will make them seem more intelligent instead of just creepy and weird.
The only person I know who thinks that way is a 30-something metalhead manchild who reminds everyone that 'music is his lyfe' (doesn't play any instrument tho) on a daily basis
It's not even avant-garde stuff, I don't think I've ever seen a legitimate discussion of art music or anything there, not even more than a couple threads about more experiemental stuff in the style of Sunn or Merzbow, and even then it's just whatever their most recent album was (not saying these are exactly super obscure though, don't get me wrong) It's just a bunch of people listening to slightly uncommon stuff, but not so uncommon that you'd have issues finding people who know what you're talking about. It's not even about the music really, just the ability to pretend you're better than everyone else for listening to it.
>who reminds everyone that 'music is his lyfe' (doesn't play any instrument tho)
People like this are so fucking annoying. If you're not actually living off music or don't base your life around trying to get a career in music somehow, it's not your life, it's just a hobby.
I can never get into Modest Mouse despite liking Radiohead, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Microphones, Mountain Goats, They Might Be Giants, The Smiths, and Deathcab For Cutie
You just might prefer softer folk tbh! I would try out something like Sufjan Stevens, Iron and Wine, or if you really want to go oldschool (and don't mind a lead singer who's a bit of an asshole) check out London Wainwright.
Another thing I noticed about your list is all of those singers are very good at annunciation (you can clearly hear what they're saying)
This bothered me a lot when I started listening to them, but after looking at the lyrics once or twice I could fill in the blanks. If it's not your thing though, don't worry, there's plenty of other stuff out there you might enjoy.
Loudon Wainwright: Swimming Song, Tonya Twirls
Iron and Wine: Trapeze Swinger, Jesus the Mexican boy
Sufjan Stevens: The predatory wasp of the palisades is out to get us!, Casimir pulanski day
Modest Mouse: Bankrupt on Selling
Thanks. I do like softer stuff like Iron and Wine and Sufjan Stevens. I'll check out the suggestions.

Really? In the UK Radiohead and David Bowie are pretty mainstream. OK Computer was huge!
Anyway, I've gotten back into Pulp :)
Even that I think is kind of proof of what I'm saying. Sure, most people won't know much of their music, but both of those are huge bands that sell incredible amounts of records, and their shows pretty much always sell out. It's like saying that Black Sabbath is underground because most people only know a couple of their songs. Or even the Beatles.
Most people just don't listen to that much music, but they're still going to know their names and a few of the songs. Especially from OK Computer.

I've been stupidly obsessed with Porter Robinson since I got to see him live during SDCC.
The album is nice BAD DAY music. One of my favorite sad rap albums.>>106460
Gave Loudwainright a listen. Made me realize I never had any FOLK music in my library, just sub-genre of FOLK. He seems like a more comedic folk version of every folk-punk musician I listen to. He's nice.
Stagger Lee and Where the Wild Roses Grow are my favorite songs from that album.
It's so creepy, but awesome. I really love Kylie and Nick singing together.
You might like these bands, which have a similar sort of sound/feel.

I liked his wind in the wires, waifish wandery boy with a violin, english folk vibe. I always appreciated his songwriting and his acoustic renditions especially.
Then the Bachelor came out and I was not into the new direction. The electronic elements were poorly done he was projecting this fierce
vibe that I didn't believe and it made me sad.
Then Sundark and Riverlight came out and it was exactly what I wanted! He's an amazing instrumentalist.
He looks older than that to me but still not middle aged.>>108078

I'm wondering, does anyone else here play any instruments or in a band, even?
I pretty much only listen to late 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and early-mid 90's music. I like disco, funk, house, rnb, metropolis sound, new jack swing, miami bass, and all sorts of fun stuff. I try to listen to new music every once and a while and I can't help but notice A LOT OF IT samples beats and percussions from 80s and 90s music. Hell even video game music is throughly influenced by that 80s and 90s new jack swing/house style. I dunno man, sometimes i'm worried if we actually are going to go above the threshold the 80s and 90s got to since we experimented with different music styles A LOT back then
If its not 80s and 90s, then its that 60's slow soulful music. If its not that, then it has no style at all and its assorted mess
Lead guitar and occasionally bass (I'm not a bassist, just end up stuck with the bass when we can't find one, because it's easier to work without lead than rhythm for a while).
I've played in a couple groups, one at like 15 that never left the garage, one at like 17 that was so fucking unorganised, but we managed to put together enough material in a couple weeks to get into a state wide contest, and did okay, but didn't really place, but I was mostly happy we got in on such short notice there honestly.
I've played a couple pub gigs since then with different groups, but nothing solid. Got turned off playing long term in bands for a while due to a bunch of bad experiences, so have just been essentially a fill in member for whoever needs it.
19 now by the way, but I only consider myself having three years of playing, because I've had lengthy periods with no practice due to personal reasons.
Best bits of advice I've give to anyone is to not spend too much on your first guitar, just get something you like and upgrade it as you go on, make sure to not just play tabs (learn your scales, enough theory to know what a key is and what key you're playing in) and to learn to fucking solder if you want to ever play an electric instrument, because it's a waste spending $100+ getting someone to fit a grounding wire back on or something simple you can learn to do in like an hour yourself.
Oh, and don't feel bad if you suck. Almost everyone thinks they suck, and you will for your first few years playing compared to most people you meet. Once you've hit two years you should be around intermediate level I'd say.
Kek, sorry, got my posts mixed up, I was half replying to yours and half to another one on a different site.
Feel free to ignore the advice part.
I'm not ashamed of what I listen to, it's just that you guys need better reading comprehension. Everyone has a reason for liking their favorite band. It holds memories for me that a cherish. I never said they were in the category of heavy metal/rock, which is why I mentioned I liked that kind of music in a separate paragraph.
Not like it really matters since I said I can't listen to that type of music anymore, but whatever.
They're probably one of those metal elitists who forget what metal originally was, and that bands like Iron maiden are considered metal.
Not worth replying to them in my opinion, you'll just get condescension and an assurance that your tastes are wrong in reply.
I have incredibly good taste (video related)
Too bad this thread is dead! I'm happy to know other people still love Smashing Pumpkins and Tom Jobim.
99% of it is fucking terrible
Burial - Untrue is a good album, but it's pre-US corruption dubstep so it might not sound too similar
Yes love smashing pumpkins! I kinda got into them a little late though my first album of theirs was the everlasting gaze and have been collecting their back catalogue.>>115856
Great to see another anon who likes burial!
I love this song with a passion holy shit.>>115849>>115856>>119608
I can't get into dubstep either. If there's like a tiny dubstep break in a song that's fine but as a whole the shit is awful. I got a family member and a couple friends who love it and I wish I was deaf everytime they show me it.
i know this is an old post, but pls, techno-chan, more!>>86871>>94572>>105785
confirmed gr8 taste, hello friend>>173507
anon this is really good, thank u
been very pleased to see everything from teenage faves (mcr, smashing pumpkins, slowdive, hole) to ymo and kate bush, to swans and alcest and all types of great stuff in between
let's keep this thread alive, farmers
enjoy some darkwave
I want to keep this thread alive too, I've found good stuff here, like >>173499
As your typical snappy Smiths fan I'm the type who doesn't like covers, but if you do, maybe check out Lily Hates Roses and Supergrass covers. I think LHR is better but the send me a pillow part was destroyed by a dude with an unpleasant voice…Why? Ugh.
Anyway, I found this cover a while ago. I thought I'd hate it but somehow i love it, kek. Dunno why. Maybe it's his voice, maybe it's the fact that he wears funny socks and has stickers everywhere, or asks people to like his Facebook page. I think everything about it is charming. Anyway, I like this odd gem. I know a great instrumental too.

yo so im necroing this board bc I'm looking for an artist that I used to listen to like 8 years ago and was wondering if any anon would/could help.
The only info I have to go off of is iirc they're a Scandinavian singer that's very recluse; they've never preformed live and even refuse to do so. I don't think they use male or female pronouns either (but they're predominantly female??). Physically, they're pretty skinny and in all the pictures of them they're head-to-toe stark white, bald, and has creepy long ass nails. A lot of the photos of them are partially naked too and they're all skin and bones. Pic related bc it almost closely resembles the singer from what I can remember. spoiled for those who don't like creepy shit.
Music is generally dark, ambient, very creepy and almost echo-y?? Its been so long since I've listened to them but Im dying of curiosity to find them again

Omg I think I can help you. Is it Sopor Aeternus? I never listened to her but people recommended her music as I love Emilie Autumn and that's how I was able to find her name on the net.
She's German tho, according to info on the net.

If you're into synthwave/outrun , Meteor just dropped a new album. It's a very "typical" synthwave album but it has so mf great tracks on it
my go to song at the moment. I might share a playlist later today, I'd love to see your playlists at the moment anons plz share
I think they're very talented but I can see how people just wanna bash them (that Pitchfork article was fucking stupid though)
I really like their sound, despite it not being new.Brave New World and Age of Man are my favorites, and the album itself is too long. I'll admit their new "sooo spiritual" shtick is bit cringe.
love Blackberry Smoke, just recently missed them in Paris, ugh

Can you guys recommend some cute japanese music that isn't overly campy j-poppy and anime-esque? I'm not looking for that boring 80s "city pop" shit either. I want stuff similar to Soutaiseiriron. Anything chill and upbeat.
Where did I say anons couldn't or shouldn't post here?
Must be why so many bands like Radiohead cite Throwing Muses as influential.

Does everyone on this board have synced up periods or something? Why the unnecessary bitchiness? Sheesh.
I wasn't the anon who posted music in the other thread, freak.
You're one to talk
