I may have mentioned that this was the sort of stuff i have been listening to these days. Set off thanks to Mnemonic, Shoey, Sakura, Panther, etc. It’s part of a project i’m working on, but the added benefit is that as i’m smacked in the work mode lately and in the forseeable future, i can also listen to it while i’m working. This is huge.
This stuff is obviously pretty new to me. Another nice thing about this sort of music is that when you leave out the lyrics, it’s generally a pretty international genre. Artists on this list hail from Mexico, the US, Russia, Poland, Greece, France, Italy, Germany, Iceland, and Japan. But genre pedants can have at it. Seen artists on here called post rock, post classical, indie, ambient, electronica, and maybe someone in Japan can explain to me what Math Rock is, as the Japanese artists on here are also tagged as such.
Bit of a saminess to the songs on this list, sort of by design. No lyrics (save one song). Tried to avoid crescendos (for project purposes). A bit pretty. Open to any info from those who know much more than i do.
