I'm looking for some more stuff similar to Spacemen 3, stuff that's less obvious, though... not looking for someone to tell me Spiritualized or early-career Flaming Lips or BJM or blah blah blah.

Edit: I'm also not looking for Noise Pop or Shoegaze and derivatives, I've pretty much exhausted all I care to from those genres.

Have you tried early (pre-Screamadelica) Primal Scream? Stuff like this tends to scratch that "I walked with Jesus" druggy gospel space blues itch for me.

I'm looking for music in a style similar to these two songs below. I guess its a kind of slow blues, the tempo of the song is what appeals to me most.

Fleetwood Mac - Need Your Love So Bad
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtmW2ek7WkQ

Screamin' Jay Hawkins - Portrait of a Man
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjYWQ3FZYd4

Is this a certain style of blues music or is it just a slow song in the genre? It's the slow pace that I appreciate the most and would like to discover more examples of.

These are often referred to as "torch songs" or "torchy" blues. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torch_song

You may want to start searching for that phrase or quality in reviews or descriptors, or even tags on something like Pandora.

You might know them already, but I'd really recommend Mům, who were pretty much contemporaneous with BoC in popularizing that creepy-childlike-nostalgic sound. You might also check out Matmos's recent album Supreme Balloon (but not necessarily their other material) which has a real throwback sound.

The British label Soundway has issued a bunch of afrofunk compilations in the last few years: three of Ghanaian tunes and like five of Nigerian ones, all are absolutely top notch and I won't even pick a favourite. Then there's the Beninese band Orchestre Polyrythmo de Cotonou, who've got a good reissue treatment lately, particularly from the Analog Africa label. The best pick is a comp called Reminiscin' in Tempo though, I can't remember what label it came out on but it was a few years back, think it's out of print. Other West African funk/highlife artists of note would include, among many others, Moussa Doumbia, Sir Victor Uwaifo, Prince Nico (whose song "Sweet Mother" is a pan-African classic).

For a different vibe, Mali's music scene is absolutely fantastic: check out Rail Band, Orchestre Régional De Kayes and Orchestre Régional Du Mopti. Guinea had a great scence too back when, focused on the Syliphone label, a lot of that stuff has been compiled and reissued lately. DR Congo had one of the biggest music industries during the early years of independence, and their Cuban music derived genre soukous has been massively influential through the continent: check out Franco, Taby Ley Rochereau and Dr Nico. Orchestre Baobab play great Cuban-style music too, I think they're from Senegal. Angola didn't have many significant bands as such, but Bonga's first two albums are brilliant folk-style stuff, and Buda Musique have compiled their early independence years music on a few CDs. Ethiopia is a whole different game altogether too, Buda's Ethiopiques series has like 30 CDs by now, but I'd focus especially on Mulatu Astatqe, Mahmoud Ahmed, Tlahoun Gessesse and Getachew Mekurya.

It depends what you mean by "pop" and what genres you like. On the super-poppy end of the spectrum you obviously have people like Lady Gaga, who writes her own material and is pretty much a self-made woman (I think?!). On a more kind of indie level you have musicians like Bat For Lashes, who is one of my favourite acts working today.

Kate Bush is obviously a genius too.

edit: also depends what you mean by 'produce'... if you mean record their own stuff using their own production methods, why is that important to you?

as someone else said, depends how wide your definition of pop is.

So far she has released an EP and double album which are part of the same concept piece about a messianic time travelling android

Well I don't know a whole lot about pop so I don't really know what I'm talking about. By produce I just mean compose their own backing music I guess. And by pop I was thinking of the poppier stuff like Lady Gaga, Rhianna, Robyn, Janelle Monae uh I dunno I can't think of any others that have caught my ear. I love Bat For Lashes but I guess I've never thought of her as pop for whatever reason.

To avoid beating around the bush, there's a weird idea amongst a lot of people that a talented performer composing their own music makes it somehow more valid and therefore good, but that seems sort of silly to me given the wealth of pop (and other kinds of) music that has existed for decades that obviously defies this idea.

With Italo you are going to find that its pretty much all one off singles and very very few full albums. Mixes and compilations are the best way to go, and there are hundreds of those out there so I can't really point you to one. And if you aren't into comps and mixes, just go to youtube and look for an artist you know and like and get lost in the related videos. As for prominent artists:

Gino Soccio
Change (Luther Vandross got his start here, American vocalists with Italian writers, producers, and musicians)
Easy Going
Gary Low
Scotch
Fun Fun
Koto
Albert One

and you should also check out Hi-NRG which sonically is way similar to Italo, but isn't Italian (the Americas and the UK):

anything produced by Bobby Orlando aka Bobby O (The Flirts, Divine, tons of others)
Bronski Beat
Lime

I really like the sound of Russian in song, but the only thing I've listened to (and what hooked me in the first place) has been traditional stuff - Katyusha, Kalinka, Ochi Cernye, etc. This might have skewed my tastes toward the orchestral/vocal, but I'd like to see what else is out there. The only other example I've heard a little of is Kraski, which pushes the limits of my tolerance of synthy production, and while her beats tends to be too bubbly for me I like her voice and the cadence.

Can anyone tell me what's hot on the Russian scene these days, or maybe a few of your favorites, if only to give me some more reference points? I can read the alphabet okay, so band/song names in Cyrillic are fine, but if I need to go much deeper than that I'll probably be lost.

edit - It might help to clarify my tastes a little, though they're pretty broad: I like classic rock from ACDC to ZZ Top, especially the softer or more melodic stuff like Rolling Stones and Jethro Tull (probably my favorite band). The goofier varieties of metal are a guilty pleasure (Iron Maiden, Rhapsody, Dragonforce), but the harder grindy-screamy stuff turns me off. I am ignorant of hip-hop but I guess I'm open to it

You're falling into two fallacies right off the bat; Italo in particular wasn't really a genre of "arists" making "albums" of their songs, it was producers making singles to be used in dance mixes. That mix I posted is Italo in its natural habitat, just as a Led Zeppelin song's natural habitat is on an album of other Led Zeppelin songs. Disco music, and especially Italo, was made as one-offs for the dancefloor to be used by DJ's and consumed by dancers. Sure, there's a Doctor's Cat album here - http://www.discogs.com/artist/Doctor%27s+Cat - but it's really just a compilation of their singles. "Feel the Drive" (the instrumental) is the primary thing you consume by Doctor's Cat, usually in a mix, and then you move on. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9VzVAMNs1o

That's the social-artistic contract of Disco and post-disco dance music. It's a different paradigm than "rock artists" making "albums" of their material. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9VzVAMNs1o

That said, when you look at something like Discogs or wikipedia for a particular producer, you'll see the sheer breadth of pseudonyms that they used. Many guys would use a different name for every single! Arthur Russell was himself, Dinosaur L, Loose Joints, Lola, Indian Ocean, Killer Whale...

I'm looking for more stuff like Vibrasphere - Lungs of Life. I saw someone describe it as "progressive psy-trance," but searching for that hasn't been too fruitful. I really like how it's mellow, but the bass hits every beat, and there's lots of psuedo-trippy riffs but it's pretty understated and slower than the typical psytrance I've heard. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I'm hoping there's more poo poo like this out there.

I'm looking to go on a new music binge, so the more recommendations the better. I hope this isn't a faux pas here in NMD, but it's the most concise way to give a picture of what I like I can think of so here's my Last.fm.

tl;dr of above:

Just found out that contrary to what my proto-hipster friend told me, Yeah Yeah Yeahs are in fact ridiculously awesome, but I'm a little apprehensive it won't last. I liked them the instant I heard it which is generally a sign I'll get sick of it in a week or two. Trying to get a grip on Built to Spill, not so sure about it, seems really samey on the first couple listens. I'm going to give it another shot or five though, maybe there's something I'm not immediately hearing musically, and some of the lyrics have really blown me away.

Current favorites:
Modest Mouse
The Faint
Pixies
The White Stripes
Cake

I hate hate hate ambient and jam bands. That's not to say I begrudge you your liking them if that's what you're into, it's a taste thing not an objective value judgement. I like stuff that keeps giving when I concentrate on it. Layers, discordant notes that shouldn't work but do, syncopation, that kind of thing. Music that fades into the background can go gently caress itself.

Thanks!

That you like Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Modest Mouse, Pixies and The White Stripes (and I guess some Modest Mouse) makes me think you might like some slightly screwy but catchy rock and roll. You might like the first Devo album (Q: Are We Not Men A: We Are Devo), Pere Ubu and The Monks (who Jack White really likes, apparently)

Rough Trade also have a Rock n Roll compilation out you might like.

Because (western) popular music was defined by bands like The Rolling Stones and The Beatles who made a point of transitioning into writing and performing their own music in direct contrast to the factory line pop singers of the time.

I'm struggling to think of any popular musicians that I like that don't write the majority of their own music.

Have you listened to The Residents? The Third Reich 'n Roll is a great starting point if you enjoyed the satirical aspect of Zappa and want to hear '60s radio rock chewed up and spat out in a hilarious fashion. Duck Stab/Buster and Glen is probably their peak as an avant garde band. I'm also partial to the dark storytelling albums they did later in their career, like God in Three Persons and The River of Crime.

Also maybe check out avant-prog, especially anything Dave Kerman and/or Bob Drake were involved in. 5uu's, Thinking Plague, solo Bob Drake

I don't have much to recommend for organ-oriented psychedelic rock, but you didn't comment on my earlier recommendation of Frumpy, so I dunno if you missed that or not. Maybe earlier Deep Purple too?
