I love bands that use lots of harmonised vocals (I don't know if that's the right word, sry for my english ^^) such as the beatles, simon&garfunkel,etc...

but the fact is that I don't know much of bands doing it.

So any recommandation?


PS: I don't want bands from a specific genre, or years. I don't care if it's metal, pop, hip-hop, just want some nice vocals :'(
PS 2: I don't know if it was already asked, or if i'm in the wrong forum. If it's the case, just say it and I'll delet my thread ;-)

Crush 40, if you have ever heard of them.

NOFX has a bit of vocal harmony as well, but not much.

Old Crow Medicine Show and The Avett Brothers are 2 bluegrass/folk bands that I've been getting into recently that have great harmonized vocals.

other than the bands mentioned... Though they don't on every song, and not even most of them, but they most certainly do, so if you search their discographies you will find some great harmonized vocals.

The Grateful Dead
The Expendables

Slightly Stoopid
String Cheese Incident

I can't even begin to begin to imagine how Crosby, Stills & Nash have not been mentioned.

By far the best harmony I've ever heard.

CROSBY, STILLS & NASH... look em up.

Edit: Nevermind my first sentence... They have been mentioned

Skeet UK is awesome, he can get WD Music parts discounted.

It's been said before but there's no harm in repeating, as far as harmonized vocals go, Alice In Chains is pretty much the way to go.
