Here are some new artists I've heard these days that I absolutely love. They are a little more on the pop site than what I've previously posted.
Penguin Prison. This guy reminded me a little bit of Robyn and La Roux and definitely reminded me of 80s Michael Jackson. His voice also reminds me of another artist named Bernhoft (another artist you should check out). This specific song is one of my favorites so far, reminds me a little of ABBA but it's got a cool dub effect in there a little bit too.
DubFX. Great vibes. A friend on youtube, TheRiffShaman, recommended DubFX to me. I absolutely love his sounds.
Other than these artists I've mentioned I've run across a lot of other great music. I've gotten a little bit into Dubstep, I really like the deep bass and wobble bass stuff. It is tasty to my ears.
I. Absolutely. Love. This. Band. Listener. I first heard about them when I watched The Chariot's "David De La Hoz" video. The Chariot is another one of my favorite bands of all time. First let me show you the video...
The guy standing with bare feet in the side room, where two other guys are playing video games, is Dan Smith, one of the guys from Listener. They call their genre of music "Talk Music". More generally its called "spoken word", but I believe it is a true genre of music. It's beautiful poetry that they usually put to music, which can really help the feeling of the poem. It's a very different kind of music and I love it. Here is the wiki page for them: Listener (band).
And here is one of their videos. This is one of my favorite songs of theirs (although it really is hard to choose) and I feel like it is a perfect example of the real church (the church as a body of people, not a place). And here are the lyrics.
Here is another of theirs, one of the first of theirs that I'd seen, and it just has to be heard, its beautiful and gives me chills every time. Here are the lyrics too, cause you really need to follow this story - lyrics
Well that's what I got for now. Please check out The Chariot and Listener. I can't get enough of them.
