lookin for some new tunes

Discussion in 'Music genres, Bands and Artists' started by damncrazylegs, Oct 14, 2009.

  1. im lookin for some bands similar to wookiefoot, the flaming lips, the expendables, soldiers of jah army. just some jam bands, psychedelic, reggae kinda stuff. nothing really electronic/techno, dont need any hip hop or rap. or metal, so please dont post about artists in those genres. i have plenty of those for now, just need some new tunes for chilling

    any reccomendations?
  2. Animal Collective
  3. Hey crazylegs,

    I just put this indie playlist / flash player together... you can CHECK IT OUT HERE

    Not really any traditional "jam bands" and there's a little bit of electro infused stuff, which I know you said you don't want to hear... But there's also some chillin hippie type stuff like Fleet Foxes, and a ton of eclectic relatively new music. (Mostly 2007 - 2009)

    If you take a minute to browse the playlist I think there's a chance you may find something new... that you like. Maybe not, but just thought I'd take a stab at helpin you out.

    Either way... Good luck on your search.

  5. Ween !
    Frank Zappa
    Brian Eno
  6. I really dig...
    Animal Collective, Circa Survive, Dr. Dog, The Mars Volta, Modest Mouse (everything before that album that had Float On), Silversun Pickups, and Cage the Elephant.
    Some quick work with Google will let you know if you like any of them. :)
  7. plug a favorite chill-out song into pandora. or i like to look up albums on amazon and see 'what other users also purchased'.

  9. thanks man ive been looking through that. some good stuff in there.

    and thanks to the rest of ya, +rep. i go through last.fm a lot lookin through similar artists but i like hearing about bands ive never heard of from other ppl too sometimes so thanks

  10. I second that. Rodriguez is the shit. Unbelievable he never took off in the states.

    I'm a huge Flaming Lips fan dude. What era do you like? If you're into their punk era (1986-1990) you should be listening to The Butthole Surfers and Ween. If you're into their grunge era (1993-1997) you should be listening to Acid Mothers Temple or The Boredoms. If you're into their pop era (1999-2007) you should listen to MGMT or Black Moth Super Rainbow. If you're into their latest album that just came out yesterday, you should be listening to Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, Faust, Neu, Can, or Amon Duul. There new shit is CRAZY!:hello:
