Sometimes, there's a man, well, he's the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's Jimmy T.

I need some recommendations for modern soul/funk bands, in particular ones that build a lot on the soul/funk of the 60's and 70's. Bands similar to the Poets of Rhythm would be excellent, and would be even better if the music was available on vinyl.

Try a Minnesota band called Black Diet, and a Canadian band called Five Alarm Funk.

Thanks a lot for the recommendations. Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings is exactly what I was looking for. Any other similar groups I should keep an eye out for? Five Alarm Funk had some cool stuff, and I enjoyed Black Diet, it's just a little more indie than I am looking for.

You should also check out Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears

edit: Here's a few other funk and soul songs you might like.

Ok. I need some recommendations on bands. I want to get more into Progressive metal\Progressive Rock.

I prefer mixed vocals but I can deal either way.

Pretty late to this post, but I thought I’d recommend Animals as Leaders if you haven’t already heard of them. No vocals, just excellent prog metal, very high technical skill, Tosin Abasi has quickly become one of my favorite all-time guitarists and Matt Garstka is a drum legend.

I grew up ignorant of Metal. I am now addicted to King Diamond "Them", "Abigail" and "The Eye". Any other good 'rock opera' style, melodic metal out there?

Nobody does it quite like the King, but lots of power metal uses that kind of format at least. Avantasia has a whole “metal opera” project with a million guest vocalists. Blind Guardian’s “Nightfall in Middle-Earth” is about the Silmarillion and kicks insane amounts of rear end. Queensryche is more like a progged out version of 80s hard rock and heavy metal but Operation: Mindcrime is a good one. Savatage did a rock opera but they have better albums than that. Dream Theater’s “Scenes From a Memory” is good.

Also be sure to check out King Diamond’s original band Mercyful Fate. They’re insanely good.

Thanks! I realized that I should probably just check out everyone on the Daptone label. Looking forward to checking more out.

Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings have been mentioned, as has Black Joe Lewis.

In addition:

Charles Bradley (RIP), Sonny Knight & the Lakers, Eli "Paperboy" Reed, the Alabama Shakes, the Excitements, J.C. Brooks and the Uptown Sound, Curtis Harding, Leon Bridges, Lady Wray, Nick Waterhouse, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night-Sweats, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Vintage Trouble.

Now that's a lot of stuff. There's more, but that's a lot.

Looking for more stuff like Townes Van Zandt. Hopefully more on the folk side than the country side, but I'm open. Looking for just acoustic guitar and a person, less someone with a full band (though if it really fits, throw it at me and I'll check it out even with a band)

John Prine's first two albums
Connie Converse "How Sad, How Lovely"
Hooray For the Riff Raff "My Darkest Dearest Neighbor"
Vashti Bunyon "Some Things Just Stick In Your Mind"
Kris Kristofferson seems an obvious choice

Steve Earle. A collaborator and friend of Townes, loved Townes so much his son's name is Justin Townes Earle (who also makes good music). He also did an album of Van Zandt covers called Townes.

Oh, and Kurt Vile, too.

Looking for stuff like she, particularly Electric Girl, or modern synthwave like Scandroid but with female vocals. Something like Hollywood Principle (Firework in particular might be one of my favorite electronic songs) works as well.

Don't forget to show my shitposts to the people. They're well worth seeing.



Looking for music for panic attacks. Something instrumental, minimal, soothing, to help when my mind is racing a mile a minute and I'm stuck in fight or flight mode for no reason.

The best thing I've found so far is Music for Airports, but not all ambient stuff works. Soothing Sounds for Baby (ironically) makes it way worse from the repetitive high notes.
