Okay this one may be tricky.

I love Nine Inch Nails but specifically for their Ghosts I-IV which is an industrial/every other genre instrumental album featuring a wide range of instrumentation and music styles. Are their any other bands or albums that fit this instrumental genre?

Well, it's mostly vocal, but you may like Swans. Their album Children of God is pretty varied instrumentally and has both male and female vocalists.

edit: here's the personnel listing if you're interested in what instruments specifically are on the album.

sunn O))) is kind of hard to get into. I'd recommend Earth instead. They were a major influence on both Boris and sunn O))) and their output is more varied than sunn O))) but not quite as diverse as Boris. Another major influence on Boris, the Melvins, alternate between short songs and long droning ones. Here's the Melvins song Boris is named after.

I'm also looking for stoner metal, such as Kyuss. Anything more modern/psycadelic?

There's Sleep, whose album Holy Mountain is probably their most accessible album, then there's Dopesmoker, which consists of a single, hour-long song.

The ever popular Boris has a varied output, but Heavy Rocks is their most straight forward stoner album.

Boris' predecessors, the Melvins play more punk influenced stoner/doom. Start with Houdini.

For something more recent, there's Torche's Meanderthal, which features a more pop-like brand of stoner metal.

Most of their early stuff is good. Fly By Night, 2112, A Farewell To Kings, Hemispheres and even A Caress Of Steel. Their self titled is without Neil Peart and sounds like typical blues rock of the 70's, but its still worth listening to I think.

If you like live albums, I haven't heard a bad live Rush album yet, Different Stages is my favourite.

If you're looking for something similar to 70s Rush, but less proggy and more hard rock/70s metal, there's Budgie, which features even higher pitched vocals and a faster tempo.

I'd highly recommend You're Living all over Me by Dinosaur Jr. It's more rock than noise, but I personally prefer it to Daydream Nation because of it's shorter, more conventional song structures. If you browse allmusic's American Underground tag you'll find other similar artists from the 80s. Or if you really want to learn more about those bands, read Our Band Could be Your Life by Michael Azerrad, which features chapters on over a dozen bands of the era, including Sonic Youth.

Well blues and jazz aren't really the same thing at all, but if you're looking for blues harmonica, Sonny Boy Williamson II is one of the best harpists. For blues in general (with some harmonica) I'd recommend Muddy Waters and Howlin' Wolf.

hey guise i'm getting into shoegaze, and i really enjoy Gala and Spooky by Lush and Loveless by My Bloody Valentine. what else should i check out?

The Jesus and Mary Chain's Psychocandy is early/proto-shoegaze and still one of the best albums in the genre. Darklands is also good but they never made another album quite like Psychocandy. After that I'd recommend Nowhere by Ride and Souvlaki by Slowdive. Don't forget MBV's first album, Isn't Anything, which isn't as refined as Loveless, but still has some great songs like the harder rocking "Feed Me with Your Kiss". Of course there's plenty of other bands and later fusions, but these are the essentials in my opinion.

Hehe my first edit spelt it as Fuckadelic.

The album right before it, Free Your Mind and Your rear end Will Follow, is probably the most similar. As far as stuff by other artists, Stand! by Sly and the Family Stone and Hendrix's Band of Gypsies have a similar funk/rock sound. As for harder to find stuff there's Eddie Hazel's (Funkadelic guitarist) solo album Game, Dames, and Guitar Thangs and Buddy Miles' (Band of Gypsies drummer) Them Changes.

In terms of heavy music, I listen to the canon stoner rock/metal bands (kyuss, sleep, high on fire, electric wizard) then the GA group of recent metal bands (Baroness, Mastodon, Kylesa, Torche), and also Boris I guess. So I was wondering where else and what else I should start looking into in terms of metal?

There's the earliest doom metal bands that played slower Black Sabbath inspired stuff in the 80s like Pentagram, Witchfinder General, Saint Vitus, Trouble, The Obsessed, and Candlemass.

Then there's the Melvins, who were one of the first bands to mix punk with doom, paving the way for sludge metal. They were especially influential to some of the bands you mentioned.

Earth - early drone metal

Neurosis - early post metal

Southern sludge - Acid Bath, Corrosion of Conformity, Crowbar, Down, Eyehategod

There's a bunch more, but those are probably the most "essential" especially Melvins. More info in this thread http://forums.somethingawful.com/sh...hreadid=2512135

Well Stevie Ray Vaughn is really more blues-rock than blues, so stuff like Hendrix and Clapton are similar, but if you're looking for less rock based stuff you'd probably like John Lee Hooker or Buddy Guy. Although he's sort of in between electric blues and rock and roll, you might also like Bo Diddley. With most of these guys I'd recommend getting a "best of" compilation before listening to a whole album.

To be honest I'm not a fan of most of those bands, but you might find what you're looking for on Mike Patton's Ipecac label.

After being introduced to "80s on the Rag" last night at the pub, I hunger for some good ragtime music that I can get from iTunes. Is there even such a thing as contemporary ragtime? I'd love artists that depart from the usual Scott Joplin stuff and do something different.

I know Something Awful has a bustling ragtime enthusiast community, so let's hear it!

If you're looking for something beyond the Scott Joplin piano stuff, you might like Piedmont Blues which is heavily influenced by ragtime but primarily uses the guitar. The albums Ragtime Guitar's Foremost Fingerpicker Blind Blake and The Best of Blind Willie McTell (Yazoo records) are both good starting points.

He's not exactly asking for bands 'similar to The Clash', I'm taking it he wants to know more punk bands in general. I'm saying that if you're going to just start out exploring that stuff, you're gonna need to hear more than the two records he mentioned before you start forming opinions about the genre. Those bands would all lead in different directions depending on which he likes more.

(Unless, dude, you really just want more stuff like London Calling, in which case I can't really help.)

People have different criteria for what they consider punk though. I'm not trying to turn this into a "what is punk?" conversation but London Calling is quite different from "straight-ahead punk" like the Sex Pistols and the Ramones. Chances are he probably would gravitate more towards Gang of Four than the Circle Jerks. That said I thought this was a better suggestion:

A Violence Gang posted:

Sounds like my taste as far as punk goes -- I like the stuff that uses punk as one influence among others but I'm not big on pure punk itself. Maybe check out some other punk/something else hybrid groups like Gang of Four (Entertainment!, Solid Gold) and the Gun Club (Fire of Love, Miami)?

Recently I have been getting into Classical guitar and jazz guitar styled music. The only problem is I have no idea where to start with either as they are both huge in the sheer amount of artists and musicians. If someone could just give a few pointers on what to check out first I will do so and report back with reviews. The only memorable artist I have listened to has been John Williams thus far. Oh and the band Soil and "Pimp" Sessions (though they don't feature a guitarist, I HIGHLY enjoy this style of fast and furious jazz, so anything similar to that with or without a guitarist I would definitely eat up).

Well classical and jazz guitar are pretty different styles, but I'd recommend Andres Segovia for classical. My Favorite Works, Vol. 3 has some of my favorite pieces. You might also be interested in flamenco, which uses the same type of guitar, but also includes additional percussion and may or may not include vocals. Carlos Montoya is a good starting point.

As far as jazz guitarists go, it depends on what you're looking for. For instance Django Reinhardt played acoustic guitar and has a more 'traditional' sound with some folk influences. Charlie Christian was one of the earliest jazz guitarists to go electric and his style lies between swing and bop.

Thanks man. I listened to a lot of these bands this past week. My take:
-Rites of Spring- awesome

This was a good rec for Fugazi because of the personnel overlap. You'd probably also like Ian McKaye's short lived band Embrace. You may want to look into DC hardcore, other Dischord Records bands, and early emo.

quote:

-Dinosaur Jr- sounds like generic college alt rock, but maybe i just chose a bad album (Farm)

You're Living All Over Me is their most popular album and my personal favorite, but it still doesn't have that much in common with Fugazi. Although Dino jr is "post-hardcore" in the literal sense, I don't think they really fit in with the other bands kingcobweb mentioned. They have more in common with stuff like Sonic Youth, Husker Du, Pixies, grunge, and shoegaze.

Don't forget to look into the bands that influenced Fugazi, particularly Minutemen, Mission of Burma, Gang of Four, and Television. These bands are usually classified as post-punk, but Television is in that odd space between post-punk and proto-punk, and Minutemen are pretty eclectic, mixing punk and post-punk with various other styles like funk and country. Marquee Moon and Double Nickles on the Dime are generally regarding as the best albums of their respective bands.

Maybe I'm a horrible mysogenist but I've never heard a good punk girl singer.

If you haven't already, you should definitely look into the shoegaze genre, especially My Bloody Valentine, who were a huge influence on both the aforementioned bands. Swervedriver is also worth looking into if you want shoegaze with more of a hard rock edge.

Admittedly I don't know that much about black metal but if you like WitTR you should check out Burzum.

Since you mentioned NIN, A Place to Bury Strangers used to open for them and they also have a new album out. There's also one of their biggest influences, The Jesus and Mary Chain, whose first album Psychocandy is generally regarded as their best. There's also the closely related, sometimes overlapping genre of shoegaze.

And like Farts Domino said, your examples aren't really heavily displaced from western music anyway.
