A Honey Badger doesn't kill you to eat you, it tears off... your testicles.



I've been listening to a lot of traditional music from Quebec lately. Groups like Le Vent Du Nord and Genticorum are my two favorites right now; however, I really don't want to get sick of them. So, can anyone suggest either any other Quebecois bands or could anyone suggest any bands from a similar genre? There are a lot of songs on youtube by both groups for reference.

Also, my friends and I have an unofficial acapella group that we're working on. If anyone could recommend some good songs for us to do it would be greatly appreciated. We're four people, two guys and two girls, but we can make adjustments if the music needs it.

Cant help with the traditional quebec music but i've always wanted to hear a cover of the Where in the World is Carmen San Diegeo ending theme.

Here's a video for reference:

Please, please don't let me end up in a threesome with the lunch lady and a gay pirate. That would hit a little too close to home.

My knowledge of Quebecois music begins and ends with this band, but you almost definitely want to check out Harmonium if you haven't already. Really beautiful melodic folk-prog.

I'm in the need of Christmas music that neither my girlfriend nor I will hate. My family's Catholic, so I was raised on the choral stuff, but that's all too stodgy and solemn for my girlfriend, who grew up with pop Christmas music, and I'd rather fellate a shotgun than hear Hanson's Christmas album again. Our tastes kinda meet midway around the folky stuff, and I've already got the Jethro Tull and Sufjan Stevens Christmas albums.

I've been a long time fan of synthpop and a wide variety of music from the 80s, but yesterday a friend introduced me to the track "Another Life" by Kano. I loved the hell out of it, but I have no idea where to get started with getting into/finding more good Italo-Disco stuff. Recommendations?

New Order - Power, Corruption & Lies
Gary Numan - The Pleasure Principle
Sparks - No. 1 in Heaven

I don't know how one could go about classifying Totakeke. All I know is that I'd be happy with nothing but glitchy, spacey, minimalist industrial madness on my iPod. Does Frank Mokros have any peers doing the same sort of amazing electronic ear sex?

I've started listening to Access to Araska as well, but that's mostly just cosmic glitch electronica without the industrial elements.

You can't define 80's music without those three bands in my opinion.

Okay, House music.

Probably a very broad subject. I was at a club in Chicago the other night and I heard a sweet House groove which had a crazy rear end sax solo going on top of it. Can anyone recommend me anything similar to that? I don't know the exact DJ spinning or anything so I am worthless giving any real examples, but I'd appreciate any help!

The Dead C
Skullflower
Big Black
Shellac
The Jesus Lizard
Shorty
Nurse With Wound
Whitehouse
Hanatarash

and my favorite band, Harry Pussy.

Look into groups that were on Skin Graft and Siltbreeze and you'll surely find something you like.

A band called Aias recently put out A la Piscina, a catchy shoegazey pop thing sung entirely in Catalan (Quan Tornis Demà).

For France, maybe something like Garcons' album Divorce (French Boy). Before that album they were the much more garagey Marie et les Garcons (and produced by John Cale) if that's more up your alley (Re-Bop Attitudes).

Touch and Go is an awesome label, but dude/lady(?) was interested in noise, can't think of a better place to go than Skin Graft and Siltbreeze. Those labels almost exclusively release experimental/noise related music. Touch and Go is a bit more all over the place, but by all means an incredible label.

I'll second Scratch Acid, great band and Butthole Surfers, well, just stick with the early stuff or maybe just with Locust Abortion Technician. The later stuff isn't worth it, not to mention that the Butthole Surfers are assholes.

Anyway, to add more to the list:

The Shadow Ring
Ruins
Lightning Bolt
Swans

It's a pretty broad area of music with it's roots in punk rock. Some people would simply call Scratch Acid, or Big Black punk bands, which they are, but somewhere along the road, someone decided to call it noise rock, because it wasn't exactly hardcore, and wasn't snotty-mohawk-leather-jacket punk.

I have some BHS from electriclarryland backwards already, never delved into Jesus Lizard/Big Black too far but guess I will now. Lately I've been on pop/twee sort of J&MC inspired stuff like the pastels and black tambourine etc. as well as of course sonic youth. Great recs though guys, liking Shellac and Swans.

Henry's Dress

early My Bloody Valentine

noise rock (that haven't been mentioned yet):
Ramleh (their 90s and later output though)
Bodychoke
Tad
Mule
Live Skull
Happy Flowers (Sonic Youth covered them a few times)
Kilslug
Upsidedown Cross
Laughing Hyenas (the singer from Negative Approach is in this band, so if you dig NA I'd give them a try, a lot slower though)
Unsane
The Cows
Unwound's first couple albums
