i've always found fleet foxes to be shallow and boring. i thought they'd grow from their s/t, but no, still basically the same formula as the debut. |
: Both of their albums are really good,
: especially their second one.
: Sufjan Stevens is also a very good
: indie-baroque-folk turned
: electro-baroque-pop artist.
: Iron & Wine makes lovely, Nick
: Drake-esque folk music, if you're into that
: kind of thing.
: And, of course, I can't recommend 2011's
: The Color Spectrum by The Dear Hunter
: enough. If you haven't listened to it yet,
: you should. Everybody I've shown it to,
: including my real life music loving friends,
: has considered it at least a D/13 (I think -
: dave and Ken, feel free to correct me if I'm
: --Previous Message--
: Ok well I may have defended the 90's as it
: introduce me to rock music in general.
: However it was the 00's that drew me away
: from modern rock and made me look to the
: past for "new" music instead of
: the present.
: It was during the 00's when I listen to the
: radio and couldn't find many acts that I
: enjoyed and when I decided to search for
: recommendation for new music I look at stuff
: like Pitchforkmedia and Q magazine and look
: at albums of the year list. I don't think
: Pitchfork has ever introduced me to artist I
: have enjoyed before.
: I just felt music that was simultaneous
: melodic and catchy, has anthemic qualities,
: has complex arrangement and non-repetitive
: was something I could easily find in the
: past than the present.
: In any case the best albums of this decade
: were by older bands who originated in . The
: only great albums (D/13+ albums) were by
: older bands such as by Steve Hackett,
: Radiohead, Nick Cave/Grinderman instead of
: artist that originated from the 00's.
: Recently thanks to recommendation by George
: Starostin, I thought that Aliens's Luna
: album was the first band I've heard that
: originated from the noughties to released a
: D/13 album but then I realised that they are
: basically an offshoot of Beta Band a 90's
: group so I don't think that count.
: The bands I like from this decade are Arcade
: Fire, Franz Ferdinand, Muse, The Strokes,
: The White Stripes, Gomez, Gorillaz,
: Coldplay, Death cabs but really at best they
: are a 1 to 2 star group for me.
: Now I'm not willing to dismiss the decade as
: I realised that just because I haven't heard
: any alltime great bands this decade doesn't
: mean an alltime great noughties band doesn't
: exist. So I'm hoping for some suggestions to
: artist to folllow up.
: Bare in mind I have a bias towards more
: "anthemic" or epic and an
: irrational love for dynamic music and an
: irrational hatred of repetitive music. I
: also haven't found a way to enjoy
: non-melodic music yet so probably avantgarde
: and rap/spoken words and instrumental
: electronic music is probably beyond me right
: Oh yeah, I'm welcome to albums from the 10's
: as well (best album so far this decade is
: Hackett's Beyond the Shrouded Horizon).
