Is that a ukulele in your pants, or did you just rip ass to the tune of "Aloha Oi"?


I met Sonic Youth on June 30th, and Mars Volta on Oct 20th.

Pink Floyd is really good like that soundgarden19 said. And even though they aren't really prog rock look up some Explosions In The Sky. They make these long, beautiful instrumental songs and I think that if you like the clean guitarsound of Oceansize you'll like them too.

Edit: After a quick look at your profile I realised they already are your favourite band. Good to see I was right.

Try Voodoo Economics, sort of like the Prog-ier side of Radiohead mixed with Portishead. You can download their album for free from their website too.

Most of my favourite modern rock bands are fairly unknown on UG so I thought I'd write a few reviews here and try and garner them some new fans

1) The Wildhearts My Space

The MySpace page has 4 tracks off their latest album, which is all covers plus "The Revolution will be Televised" from their last album and "I Wanna Go Where the people Go" from P.H.U.Q., one of their albums back in the 90's.

I'd say the best description of the band would be modern rock with heavy classic rock influences. Their typical sound is cool riffs and harmonised vocals, very catchy stuff in general.

Some youtube links for a better cross-section of their career:

TV Tan

Sick Of Drugs

Caffeine Bomb

So into You

Vanilla Radio

Nothin Ever Changes But The Shoes

Greetings From Sh*tsville (This one is about London )

Wow, this got long, I think I'll leave my other recommendations for another time.

Oh, good albums by these guys: Earth V.s The Wildhearts is a must, then anything else in any order you please
#134
^ Win. The Wildhearts are awesome. It all started with Vanilla Radio for me

Battles, Hella, 65daysofstatic and Maps & Atlases would be good to check out.

Wikipedia says:

"Math rock is a rhythmically complex, guitar-based style of experimental rock music that emerged in the late 1980s. It is characterized by complex, atypical rhythmic structures (including irregular stopping and starting), angular melodies, and dissonant chords."

Alright, I listened to all of them (except for 65dos, because I already love them). Battles was very interesting, and slightly reminiscent to Animal Collective. Hella was awesome, their drumming is fantastic. And Maps & Atlases was also pretty original, even if they sort of reminded me of Minus the Bear.

Thanks a ton.

Denali, The Matches (but not their first album), Idlewild, Nada Surf, Lazlo Bane, Celldweller, Dresden Dolls, Colours Run, Dead World Leaders, The Chapman Family.

Those are some slightly less mainstream artists tagged as alternative from my music library. Most of them aren't that heavy though, so they're not really hard rock.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

See, Wikipedia is good for something.

Also, do you guys know any artists similar to Boards of Canada?


Few of those are what I'd call alternative rock, but whatever.

Do you have last.fm and/or pandora radio? Because that could be pretty helpful in finding you similar artists.
