Hey fellas, kinda bored at the moment, and my friend and I are really spending alot of time thinking about our existence and such. We'd like to pick up some suggestions for music to give us some inspiration and open new avenues of introspection for us. We've been looking into the psychedelic and 70's folk scene, and were looking for some new stuff in those genres.

Any stuff would be appreciated.

Basically, you want music to get high to?

how about the way your entire country generalizes a culture by the actions of a few, citing any Americans idea of a middle eastern person.

There's no way we can give you songs that will make you look further into yourself, we don't know you. You have to find that on your own.

Listen to some Tool.

Fair point, but I figure songs have a pretty universal effect on most people.

I call the band I'm in "an existential post-punk" band because our lyrics have mostly to do with existence and human nature...

try some Death
like, all the albums from Human onwards

not really 70s folk rock but it might be what you're looking for

Most '70s folk is rather shallow and has a pretty limited scope of things. Can't give you anything. Like stringmagician before me this be your job.
