    So What Do You Look For in Music?

    Post  mcmicken on Tue May 05, 2009 8:18 am

    When listening out for new music to listen to do you just dive in headfirst and go with whatever or do you look for bands you like and see similar ones? Just something I always wonder about people because lots of folk I've talked to say "oh, I'll listen to anything" then reel off a bunch of bands that all sound pretty similar (or in the case of modern indie ALL THE SAME).

    I sometimes go for bands that are similar to guys I already like and usually end up finding a decent band or 2. Then every so often I'll just look for something completely different, like recently I've been getting into a bit of surf rock curtesy of one of my college mates. Sometimes I get bored of distorted guitars and even guitar music in general and need to listen to some hip-hop or ambient stuff.

    I guess I like melodies mostly,
    thusly allot of Rap, Techno and Drum & bass goes under the radar for me.
    Mabye it's why I got so addicted to all the touhou doujin music too...

    I'm a big melody fan too, if I can't find a melody I'm not usually great with it. But with things like rap and d'n'b I like the rhythms and how they put the phrases together.

    I have no idea what I look for, at the moment I'm moslty liking more raw non overly-produced music. Like Paul Baribeau, Defiance, ohio and, well Bomb the music indutry have been my favourite band for a year or two now.

    I do like melody but I do like quite a few heavier bands like In Flames. As a guitarist I do like metal riffage even if it has screaming over it. Just listening to their Colony album and I have to say I'm well impressed. I got into them through their Soundtrack to Your Escape record but I've decided to go back and listen to from where they came from. Might put it up on the file sharing if anyone likes a bit of melodeath.

    needs a nice beat and to be a nice pace and if there are vocals then they need to not be annoying to just listen to
