Genre: Fucking hell, loads of 'em. I hate country music, I hate house/garage/techno/dubstep, I hate generic rock. Everything else is good to go though! Grindcore, emo, post-rock, hip-hop, electronic, indie, metalcore, rap, pop-punk, hardcore, 80’s goth, synth-wave, post-hardcore, metal, 80’s metal, 70’s groove, punk, shoegaze, acoustic, motown, 50’s and 60’s pop, the blues, screamo, skramz…anything goes (well, almost!).
I regularly browse Spotify for random playlists full of bands and artists I don’t know and I’ll play them whilst playing a video game or working on a project, and I’ll just save the tracks I dig to one of my genre playlists. It’s so easy to find so many incredible bands, artists and genres just by listening to what someone else loves. You’re never too old to get into a new type of music. The great thing about the end/start of the year, is people release ther ‘Best Of…’ lists and I just go town on them!
Right now, some of my favorite artists are; BØJET, Modern Baseball, Kendrick Lamar, Kavinsky, Chaos Chaos, Julien Baker, The Menzingers, Carpenter Brut, Arcane Roots, Clan Of Xymox, Maybeshewill, Chumped, FIDLAR, Kevin Morby, M83, Sorority Noise and Dr.Acula.
Fuck it, might as well try and list my TOP 10 ALBUMS OF ALL TIME while I’m here. These are albums which have stuck with me through and through, and I love them more than the day I first heard them…In no order;
Coheed & Cambria - In Keeping Secrets Of Silent Earth
Taking Back Sunday - Tell All Your Friends
Parkway Drive - Horizons
Brand New - Deja Entendu
Modern Baseball - You’re Gonna Miss It All
Cursive - The Ugly Organ
Mineral - The Power Of Failing
Moving Mountains - Pneuma
Against Me! - Re-Inventing Axl Rose
Circle Takes The Square - As The Roots Undo
That was really, really difficult.
