Thanks everyone for the many good suggestions. Karate, early White Stripes, some Arctic Monkeys, and Superchunk are the closest to the sound I'm looking for so far.

I guess I am in fact looking for something a little harder. Or something with more swagger, bigger riffs and guitar solos. A bunch of what yall have suggested is what I tend to pigeonhole as indie rock. Sleater-Kinney (I really liked The Woods!), The Strokes, and the handful of newer bands, other Arctic Monkeys. Although The Mysterines is getting bookmarked, they've got my attention. The harder indie stuff is the sound of college for me, and I do appreciate it and come back to it. Goons are always good for getting entirely new stuff onto my playlists, I appreciate all of you.

I'm still leaning more Gluecifer, Nashville Pussy, Nine Pound Hammer, Turbonegro I guess.

Anyhow thanks all of you, I still have a bunch of new stuff to check out and will.

It sounds like you might be good with suggestions, but since you mentioned you still wanted harder stuff and liked Superchunk, I was thinking maybe Wipers, Hum, Archers of Loaf, the Constantines, the Watchmen, or Jawbox (someone mentioned Jawbreaker before, and I feel like that's a little closer to Superchunk, but Jawbox goes harder in my opinion). Not sure if some of those will skew too indie for you, but some more things to try if you want!

I have a playlist full of music to listen to on nighttime walks and it needs fresh blood. I don't really care what genre and I don't know how exactly to describe what I'm looking for but some albums just sound like nighttime albums, you know? Lo-fi, moody, ethereal, nighttime music. Some examples of artists on the playlist now are Team Sleep, Salem, Purity Ring, Flight Facilities, The Radio Dept., Fujiya & Miyagi, Quelle Chris, Glass Candy, Milo and Boards of Canada. Hit me, goons

I really like M83 for nighttime walks. Other things that might fit are Beak>, Kruder & Dorfmeister, LCD Soundsystem, Blanck Mass, Destruments, Stereolab, and Castlebeat.

This is an excellent suggestion. Also works great for a nighttime plane flight to a new destination (along with GY!BE - f# a# infinity. The two best nighttime travel albums).

It might not be to ops taste but the Assination of Julius Caesar is one of my go-to night driving albums

id also reccomend any of the Cure's "goth trilogy" of albums: Pornography, Disintegration, and Bloodflowers

and seconding Vatican Shadow/muslimgauze as well. Great stuff!

I would add Troum.

Try Ligeti as well. Start with Atmospheres and Lux Aeterna.

there are some albums which i will cover below, but as a dance genre, jungle was designed to be heard on the dance floor mixed by competent DJs and a charismatic MC toasting on top. if you really get into this genre and become a serious head, you'll enjoy listening to a 12" straight through, but for now it's best to listen in the context they were meant for.

to that end, you gotta look up mixtapes (look up "tape packs") from some of the major names. some off the top of my head: andy c, dj rap, kenny ken, peshay (yes, the youtube algorithm mix guy), LTJ bukem, ray keith

look up compilation mixes from the big labels -- Moving Shadow, Metalheadz, Goodlooking, Suburban Base, Ram, Reinforced. this one below is a 10 year retrospective moving shadow put out in 2000 which looks like it goes in chronological order:

landmark, early album A Guy Called Gerald - 28 Gun Bad Boy

Goldie - Timeless. Considered the moment when Jungle became "Drum & Bass"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhV9VbxV3Rw

Reprazent, a live d&b supergroup of djs, producers, and musicians from bristol who won the mercury prize with their album New Forms. this live performance is a highlight:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9cujWIcFIw&t=340s

this will sound patronizing, but jungle hits vol 1, 2 & 3 covers the big ragga tunes. ragga jungle is a subgenre that leans into its reggae/dancehall roots:

lastly, a lot of the links are busted now, but the phiz jungle thread was a treasure trove for like 15 years before this stuff became popular again:

one of the most creative covers i've ever heard. Taking an upbeat poppy song and turning it into...well, just give it a listen.
