Recommendations Thread

Basically I noticed there were a lot of separate recommendations thread, all pretty much asking for similar things, so I figured I'd consolidate them all into one.

The idea of the thread is that if you're looking for a certain type of music, then post the similar bands of what you want and people should be able to help you out.

Hopefully this thread will open up a few different styles for people who're stuck in a bit of a rut, or that need something new.

Also, if anyone wants to post local/obscure bands, then that would be cool.

No posting of links to downloadable content etc.

Make sure you check out the stickies as well, people tend to look over them and post a thread anyways, when there's some good stuff in there.

Not obscure in the UK, but try Furthest Drive Home. I don't personally like them, but you might.

Try some Circle Takes The Square, Jawbreaker, Rites Of Spring, Embrace, Cap'n Jazz and Moss Icon. Standard emoish bands.

How?

I'm not stickying it until it's actually got a few posts and interest.

I'd love to hear some stuff in the vein of Minus the Bear, but with more of a post-hardcore twist or something. Slightly heavier...or just more progressive, I guess.

Drive Like Jehu maybe?

EDIT: They're really not that like Minus The Bear, but they are awesome post-hardcore.

I fail.

If you want some pop pun try The Queers, Screeching Weasel, J Church, Buzzcocks, and The Manges. That should get you off to a good start.

EUGHHHH! I saw them supporting Tellison (who were f*cking UNBELIEVABLE. I'm talking MIND blowingly good) and they were absolutely, disgustingly awful. The guy's vocals were strained from start to finish and half of it was too high for him to even sing.

Why write vocal melodies that're out of your range

EDIT:

Check out Tellison.

Imagine The Futureheads raping Motion City Soundtrack in an alley, while Brandon Flowers watches and bashes one out in the shadows. That's what they sound like.

Their vocal harmonies are SO good live. They made me fill my pants so much that I've not even managed to get an erection since.

Bleed American, hands down. That album's amazing.

I'm having Hear You Me played at my funeral: it's such a beautiful song.
