Reading this thread is not necessary, just post!



It's rather difficult for me to find new tunes that I can jam out to. Music discovery is just tough (part of that is because I don't use Spotify. Before, I used Pandora Radio back when it was popular, but I have since moved to a new country where Pandora is not available - I'm not even sure if Pandora is still around any more).

I'd say that I have pretty picky music tastes, but I will also say that I am very adventurous with my taste too. I am always willing to give new music a try, it's just that rarely does it stick with me. So I am hoping if folks just shotgun blast all of their favorite artists and album onto this thread, maybe one will stick with me.

I'll get you guys started, as I would also like to participate in this, so here's a (very large) number of favorite artists (I specifically have chosen artists & songs that I enjoy the whole album the song comes from, eliminating any "singles" or "EPs" I enjoy)

Ado Mizumori, et al - Crimson Rose & Gin Tonic (album: Katamari Damacy OST)


Archive - Kings of Speed (album: Controlling Crowds)


The Cinematic Orchestra - Breathe (album: Ma Fluer)


Coldplay - Viva la Vida (album Viva la Vida) (yes I'm serious, their best and last good album.)


Combichrist - Exit Eternity (album: This is Where Death Begins)


Dan Sartain, et al - OD Life (album: Sunset Overdrive OST)


ESNO - CME (album: Release)


Evans Blue - Over (album: The Melody and the Energetic Nature of Volume)


The Flashbulb - The Trees in Juarez (album: Opus At The End of Everything)


Hayato Asano - Hibon-sei Jirenma (album: Blue Reflection: Tie OST)


Humble Brothers, et al - EpiCenter (album: Sim City 4 OST)


Iwasaki Taku - In The Name of Love (album: Gatchaman Crowds OST)


Iron & Wine - Boy with a Coin (album: Morning Becomes Eclectic)


Massive Attack - Paradise Circus (album: Heligoland) (while searching this, there seems to be 2 different versions of the Heligoland album that are radically different. Strange.:LZSskeptic:)


Paulo Romero, et al - Floating Across Water (album: Heroes of Might & Magic IV OST)


Royksopp - Here She Comes Again (album: The Inevitable End)


And there are so, so, so, so many more artists I want to share, but I have absolutely flooded this page with good music so I am going to stop there.
Honorable mentions go to: The Chemical Brothers, Modest Mouse, Sayonara Ponytail, The Gathering, The Nephilim Novel (which is definitely, totally, not my own music), and WHITE ASH


If you also write your own music, this is a totally acceptable time to share your own stuff too, but it would be nice if you include some other artists along side your own music :LZScheeze:

If you dared to even preview each of every song linked above, you likely will have noticed that my taste in music is quite diverse, and I don't have a preference in genre. What I usually look for is something that is unique and has it's own identity. I think it's fair to say many of the artists I have listed above have their own sound and style that is uniquely identifiable to them. I also have a large number of soundtracks. Go figure, I play a lot of games and it often becomes my source of discovery for music. Some of the soundtracks I listed above have come from games I have never played before, but I heard their soundtrack somewhere before and loved it.



I look forward to whatever recommendations you have!

@TheoAllen ....on that note....


and, take the same theme and make it first person...


now chill it and make it ambient...


off that, make it a TV series...


on that series, feature a cover...


now flip it, and make it a solo....


and off that, this also features in there


I feel like I should close the back-and-forth with "I'm on a horse"... but I doubt many people will get the joke.

Eeeee, Iron & Wine! :kaocry: :wub It's been ages since I listened to that, soooo nostalgic! Back in my Iron & Wine days, I also discovered The Tallest Man on Earth and listened to Shallow Grave so much I completely wore it out! :biggrin: This piece is still great tho:

I spent way too much time of the 860 plus hours I played Stellaris listening to a mod that had music from/inspired by the Touhou Project. I had a lot of music mods installed but that was amongst my favourites. I took the music from that to make a personal mod for Rimworld for when I was playing it.

I have an eclectic taste and will listen to just about anything depending on my mood - funk, jazz, rock, pop, salsa, house I listen to it all.

For my early morning group fitness training at 5.45am I once set up a speaker to play music basically to take the piss but since then it's become a thing where I have a theme for the music selection. Sometimes the themes are nominated by other members - songs with Run in the title, another time it was Glam Rock.

Tomorrow's theme is Disney songs - suggested in secret by one of the girls because she knows itwill annoy the instructor (musical theatre has now been banned.)

@TheoAllen Thanks for sharing. Why does one of Elecrystal's albums cost $1000? That's strange...

@gstv87 Thanks for all of the links! I'm surprised you didn't just outright link the Stones :LZSlol:, here, I'll make up for that:


(I think I linked the wrong song :LZSangel:)

I haven't thought about Apocolyptica in a long time. Back when I was learning Cello, I had a handle for Cello-centric artists that I studied. Jami Sieber, Yo-Yo Ma, and there was this cello quartet that waas pretty popular but I just can't recall the name of it. I feel like their name had some sort of medical vibe to it...
Anyways, I still occasionally listen to Jami Sieber. Her cello sound is so interesting and unique, I've wondered how she's able to get her instrument to sound like that...


@alice_gristle I've known about Iron & Wine for a very long time since years ago I listened to The Postal Service religiously and since they were both signed to the same label, it wasn't long until I discovered them. However, funnily enough though I listened to a little Iron & Wine back then, they weren't much of a favorite of mine. It wasn't until probably just a few years ago I decided to check in on them, and fell in love with their...not-just-a-guy-with-a-guitar albums, like Morning Became Eclectic and Kiss Each Other Clean (though I prefer Morning Became Eclectic over Kiss Each Other Clean). That said, I like the song you shared, but it makes me wish these folks (Iron & Wine and this dude you shared) would go back and record these old songs on...not potato hardware. On the one hand, I really love the flaws that make their music feel like it is made by humans, but...the mic hiss, over-saturated, low frequency response recording is just brutal to appreciate. It doesn't have to be a perfectly clean recording...just cleaner than that. I have a low-end, general consumer pocket tape recorder that can get cleaner quality than what these folks are recording on. It's like they deliberately chose the oldest tapes that had at least 50 erasures on them for their recording.


(I really, really, really love this song.)




(For the record, I never could get into Death Cab For Cutie. I always preferred Benn Gibbard's output with The Postal Service, just a shame they only did the 1 album - it's still a good album today.)


@Enigman would be nice if you shared some links alongside your story :LZSsmile:

Idk, I never buy their album tbh. I only bought the DSP soundtrack which was way much cheaper lol.

How about Starset? Their style has gradually changed from rock to something more cinematic, but the themes of science and astronomy are still very prevalent.

Ghost is like a love letter to the 1980s "Satanic Panic". Very theatrical group if you ever get the opportunity to see them in concert.


Astrophysics is still a relatively new addition to the Synthwave scene. They initially got the ball rolling by doing synthwave covers of popular anime and meme songs before branching into their own original music. I can't really describe their original music other than taking cues from Sovietwave and Russian "Doomer" music.
Snakes is an underappreciated modern country band that flies under the radar. It's a refreshing escape from the commercialized country they always play on the radio.

I could on and on with Electroswing bands and some 1920s-1930s era jazz, but this list would be going on too long.

First of all, sorry for the late reply to this thread. I'm still looking for music! I just got caught up in a lot of stuff going on (such as the beta test of my game that I released)

Like Caravan Palace or Parov Stelar?
Some 1920-30's jazz sounds interesting. Share some links!

No problemo! Might have slipped in a Big Band song or two by accident. :kaoblush:









Not the best audio quality, but this version of "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans" is my favorite.






Not electro-swing, but I figured it fit the theme going on here. The Skullgirls OST has some jazzy/ Big Band bangers.




Congrats on the Beta BTW!

Post-Vaporwave Fusion, great album


And some forgotten songs from forgotten waves, the sort that usually makes it into my MagiCats! Monday music review.




"Stop My Head" always reminded me of the Casino Park music from Sonic Heroes.

been using old character designs I had from high school for npcs in my game. seeing as the original idea of my game was a comic, I've got a LOT of designs for characters sitting around. a lot of people aren't a part of the story anymore, so I'll make 'em npcs.
I am doing the evaluation of the feedback from the students who played my game and the comments are killing me. "it was good, we just did not have any smart trains of thought" xD
My goal this month will be to get back to organizing assets and make a prototype scene with multiple airships hovering or flying over the world map.
Having a hard time getting playtesters for one of my Unity games. No one seems to be interested. :/
