Explosions in the Sky
Here are a few songs I've been listening to a lot lately:
I like to just walk around the park at night and listen to this stuff. Does that make me weird? Does anyone else like this sort of music? Any other band/artist suggestions?
basically semi-ambient techno stuff?
Check out: Autechre, Biosphere, Vladislav Delay, Future Sound of London, Tetsue Inoe
If you want some older ambient type techno check out Brian Eno. Try the album ambient IV: On Land. If you want to go back even further in time check out Kraftwerk
If you want some stuff with vocals check out Boards of Canada, Everything But the Girl, Mazzy star
If you want stuff with a bit more dance/pop that is still ambient technoey in the background check out Luomo. Maybe New Order.
Gustav Mahler Das Lied von der Erde if you want classical in the same vein
That's probably enough to tide you over for the time being
If you like Explosions in the Sky you should also have a listen to Godspeed You Black Emperor, Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Grails, Mono.
As SomeWeirdSin mentioned, definately check out Brian Eno. He has plenty of awesome material. His collaboration with David Byrne, My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts is fantastic.
There's a lot of really good stuff out there if you like this kinda thing.
haha, not really. I just don't know anyone else who ever listens to this stuff and was kind of wondering if that's more because it's not mainstream or because people don't actually enjoy listening to this sort of stuff.
Thanks for all the recommendations.
