I'm looking for laid-back moody, atmospheric acoustic folk in the vein of Panopticon's Tamarack's Gold Returns (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxCLgSJmhgw ). They're a black metal band so the rest of the album really isn't like that. Everything I find either has vocals which I don't really care about, or is a bit too intense. Thanks for any recommendations!

Maybe some Friends of Dean Martinez? It's got some electric slide guitar but its pretty laid back and mellow. Has a southwest desert feel. Not really too folky though now that I've had more time to think about it.

I've kinda gotten into both folk/Celtic music and metal. I particularly like The Widdershins Jig:

If I like both metal and Celtic music, what're some good suggestions? Any particular I should look up? Neoclassical metal is also really cool, anything with a compelling melodic line is good too, and I'm open to some foot-tapping non-metal Celtic as well. Stuff that makes particularly good use of violins and violas are also appreciated!
Neoclassical, melodic, folky metal? My friend, sounds to me like you need some Wuthering Heights. I wouldn't call them straight-up folk metal, nor straight-up neoclassical metal, but they have elements of both, and they have the "compelling melodic lines" part absolutely nailed down. Salt is one of my personal favourite albums of all time.

As for pure folk stuff, Eluveitie used to play pretty heavy folk metal with screamy vocals and everything, but their latest album apparently drops all the metal trappings and is just bouncy folk music now.

I really really like the song My Funny Valentine and want to know what I should listen to to hear more of that kind of thing. I have little interest in jazz that's improvised and free form, I'm looking more for the stuff that's essentially pop music with jazz chord progressions and instrumentation. I'm guessing there might be some good compilations out there of that kind of thing?

How about more contemporary pop songs covered in that sort of style*? Because there's this music group thing called Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox who do exactly that. They're pretty great.

nat king cole, lena horne, sarah vaughan, billie holiday, nina simone, madeleine peyroux. maybe even some louis armstrong or dizzy gillepsie

there's probably a bunch of grey market "greatest vocal jazz standards" compilations out there. i don't have a specific recommendation though

you could delve into chanson too... aznavour, jacques brel, yves montand, early gainsbourg, etc

I'm looking for BOOK recommendations on Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and related composers like Brahms. Specifically, I'm looking for analysis of these composers' musical inventions and developments and their impact on the field. I'm less interested in gossipy Lifetime-channel anecdotes about their lives, unless the anecdotes are extremely well-researched. Have you read anything along those lines about these composers?

Other bands I listen to (in similar vein): Peace Orchestra, The Dining Rooms, Zero 7, Thievery Corporation, Arms & Sleepers, Funki Porcini, Telepopmusik

vvv I am aware, given that Tosca is a project of Dorfmeister.

My 9-year-old son loving loves both Guardians of the Galaxy soundtracks, but it's more than that - he just loves the 70s . It's not just because of the Marvel tie-in. He's been exposed to a whole gamut of stuff through his two older siblings' tastes and mine as well, and he's pretty clearly all about 70s radio rock - Kansas, Boston, Rainbow, but some soul and R&B as well. Not into Sabbath or anything too heavy (sadly). I'm looking for recommendations of other compilations/soundtracks that scratch the same itch. Already all over the Almost Famous OST, which has plenty of stuff he likes. Got Pulp Fiction as well, but I figure there are some collections out there I'm brain-farting, any recs appreciated. Thanks.

There's a series of compilation albums called The Best Seventies Album In the World... Ever! which might be worth checking out. I believe there are two. There are also four entries in the same series for the 60s, which are also good fun. They cover most of the big popular trends.

As far as soundtracks go, how about the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack? It's great.

charli xcx is a good suggestion.

kesha - animal is great

haim and sky ferreira work(ed) with some of the same songwriters crj did on emotion (dev hynes & ariel rechtshaid) whose albums i don't think are front to back good but may be of interest

i like ariana grande's first two albums but the new one was boring

singles/greatest hits comps are the best way to go, as mentioned pops not really an album genre (although most artists have deep cuts if you have the time to dig em out) unless you dip into r&b or 80s pop and even then for someone like madonna there's not really a reason to get a particular lp instead of the immaculate collection to start with

James Blake for sure. Moses Sumney's got some of that going on. I'd also recommend King Krule's new album but a lot of that isn't exactly melodic since dude's got a voice like baritone sandpaper. New Corbin album as well. The Stand4rd's album would probably fit the bill (which had Corbin who then was going by Spooky Black).
