You should listen to:

Cocteau Twins
Lamb (early is more Trip hop-later is more chilled)
This Mortal Coil
Autumn's Grey Solace
Baxter

excellent, thank you.

i've tried Cocteau Twins, and they're tough to listen to. but Cranes were also hard at first, but now i really dig them, so i'll keep listening.

i've heard a bit of Lamb, but the others are new to me.

~ edit ~

Mortal Coil didn't grab me, but i picked up all of Autumn's Mortal Coil's albums, very good stuff! still looking into Baxter...

Yeah, I listened to Cocteau Twins just randomly, and it wasn't very accessible.

I'm a huge movie fan, but my music taste is...undeveloped let's say. I always listened to movie soundtracks because it has a connection with my hobby, but for the rest of it I did not searched what sort of artists or bands I liked. It is just recently that I became interested in music. Too bad it's very hard to just "jump in" the world of music. I have absolutely no idea what my kind of genre is and I have no knowledge about artists/bands.

That's where you guys come in. I recently discovered some artists with a great voice, lyrics and rhythm in my opinion. Because you guys know a lot about music (at least a few guys here), you could help me finding new artists.

I like:

-Bob Dylan ( Almost all his songs. Every single song of the Highway 61 revisited album is amazing imo.)

-Bruce Springsteen (Atlantic City, Nebraska and the Born In the USA cd)

- Buffalo Springfield (For what it's worth)

- Bob Marley (his classics)

- Neil Young ( a few)

- Simon and Garfunkel ( a few)

Any suggestions?

Kind regards,

-Boegie

Check out the Tallest Man on Earth. Very similar to Bob Dylan.

Hi everyone! I'm new here. I'm a 21-year-old girl, originally from Europe, but living in Chicago right now.

I don't have favourite artists in particular, I just like a lot of songs, and they all seem to be from different genres.
However, I've lately been listening to this one type of music, and I really like it. I dunno what genre it exactly is...but anyway...I'll post a few songs, and I'd really really appreciate if you could give me any recommendations on which artists would be similar, or which songs would be close to that.
So...here goes

Shivaree- New Casablanca
Shivaree- Goodnight Moon
Vanessa Paradis- St. Germain
Vanessa Paradis- L'Incendie
Vanessa Paradis- Pourtant
The Cardigans- My Favourite Game

These have a little different feel to me...a little more sad and depressive, but I still like the soft, feminine voice:
Kate Bush- This Woman's Work
Tori Amos- Bouncing Off Clouds
Tori Amos- A Sorta Fairytale
Sia- Breathe Me

THANK YOU in advance!!!!!

- Bob Marley (his classics)

- Neil Young ( a few)

- Simon and Garfunkel ( a few)

I like:

- A good rhythm. Don't has to be "simple", but I don't like Tom Waits songs. They are like lots and lots of words said after each other, but there is no structure in the song.

- A deep, manly voice like Bob Dylan and Bruce Springfield.

- Good lyrics, with a political message (but that's not necessary). I appreciate it when the artist write/wrote his own songs.

- Don't overdo it. I dislike Queen because everything is so bombastic and they don't stopp yelling. A guitar, a good voice, superb lyrics and maybe a little band if that's necessary is good enough for me.

Any suggestions?

Kind regards,

-Boegie
Here are my recommendations:

Here's the most obvious one, Bob's son Jakob: YouTube - Jakob Dylan - Valley of the low sun

Kings of Convenience YouTube - Kings of Convenience-Surprise Ice
Joseph Arthur YouTube - Honey and the Moon - Redemption's son album (Joseph Arthur) with Lyrics
Jose Gonzalez YouTube - José González - Deadweight on Velveteen

Wilco: they have some great rhythms lyrics YouTube - Wilco - War On War (Letterman)

This one might be a stretch, but it definitely has a message:
YouTube - Dave Matthews Band - Don't Drink The Water
