Re: Your kind of music

On Rate Your Music, Wagner tops the Opera LP charts with this 1953 release of Tristan und Isolde:

Re: Your kind of music

On a more general note, what's fascinating about music is that it connects people of various backgrounds, professions or ages and popular musicians are often so adored that they are given lavish and pompous state funerals.

Just a few weeks ago, we had this situation in Prague, as the country's most popular singer dubbed 'Sinatra of the East' had died and his fans put more than 30,000 candles in front of the house where he had lived.



The mourning for him and the subsequent funeral was being compared to that of Johnny Hallyday in France, where a million people turned up on the Champs Elysées to accompany the coffin.



People love and are willing to pay tribute to the musicians who have touched their hearts and souls

Re: Your kind of music

Let's take a look at what's called Art Pop. A definition from RYM:

Art pop is a loose subcategory of Pop that is characterized for its manipulation of signs and its synthesis of cultural art forms; where artists reflect an affinity with art school practices or other musical/non-musical art sources such as pop art, literature, cinema, traditional music, theater performances, Experimental, Electronic, and so on. This can be musically expressed through the subversion or deconstruction of various styles, for example, by reimagining historical genres in a disparately contemporary setting, or by adopting traditions from 'serious music' (like those from Western Classical Music). In any case, the music remains in a fairly pop context.

While many art pop examples may also be considered 'experimental pop' or 'avant-garde pop', the music does not have to be challenging or inaccessible. In addition to this, relatively complex or atypical structures (for pop) should not be considered an inherent feature of the genre (unlike Progressive Pop). Art pop's main distinction to Art Rock (a related genre which contains overlapping characteristics) is that it does not confine itself to Rock idioms through the extensive use of guitars, electric bass, drum kits, etc.

Early artists who helped to develop the genre, without necessarily always fully embracing it, include Brian Wilson, John Cale, David Bowie and Brian Eno, most of whom integrated inspirations from their art school studies to their music. They were followed in the 1970s by musicians such as Sparks, Todd Rundgren, Slapp Happy, Godley & Creme and Japan, who continued to integrate art school sensibilities prominently in their work. In the 1980s, Kate Bush was influential to a new wave of melodramatic art pop, while in the 1990s, Björk characterized the genre with a heightened emphasis on digital electronics. Recently, art pop artists come increasingly more often from an Indie Pop/Indie Rock background, for instance St. Vincent, alt-J, Julia Holter. There is also a big part of art pop artists with Contemporary R&B sensibilities, for example Janelle Monáe and FKA twigs.

Top albums:



  1. Björk - Homogenic (1997)
  2. Kate Bush - Hounds of Love (1985)
  3. Gorillaz - Demon Days (2005)
  4. Sheena Ringo - Kalk Samen Kuri no Hana (2003)
  5. Stereolab - Emperor Tomato Ketchup (1996)
  6. FKA twigs - Magdalene (2019) [ ---> fairly new, beware of the hype...]
  7. Julia Holter - Have You in My Wilderness (2015)
  8. David Sylvian - Secrets of the Beehive (1987)

Re: Your kind of music

Those labels are useful only superficially. Because for me, I can easily adore one artist and dislike another artist belonging to the same "group". For example, I hate FKA Twigs but love Stereolab, Julia Holter, Kate Bush... and am indifferent towards David Sylvian, Sheena Ringo and Bjork's Homogenic.

How do u say De Groovy?
How do u say De Gorgeous?
How do u say, DE LAY DE LAY DE LAY De Lay..

What I wanted to say, those albums are really different sounding. I would never group them together myself.

I learn from these kind of classifications as for me - and it's fine to debate about it. The effort to label musics, such as what RYM does, adds a more global and comprehensive view to mine. Most of the time I find them pertinent or interesting. Sometime I find them disturbing, especially regarding some not well known musics I know well. Still I appreciate the effort (obviously, given this thread ).

I struggle to get the appeal of FKA Twigs as well.

I adore Julia Holter. I don't know the album above but have Loud City Song and it's sublime.

I have yet to hear Sheena Ringo.

Re: Your kind of music

A song from the Sheena Ringo* LP listed above:



It's quite enjoyable for me, thanks to the guitars. This track alone sounds more "art rock" than "art pop", so I'm guessing the full album has diverse textures as a whole or if not, a pop sensibility overall for song structures and melodies.

*apparently it's Shiina Ringo or Ringo Sheena.

Re: Your kind of music

My favorite French melancholia and I might call this avantgarde rather than new wave.

Rate Your Music has it in Coldwave, which is defined as such:

Coldwave is a style of Post-Punk music that originated in Europe in the late 1970s and early 1980s and is known for its generally dark, gloomy (thus "cold") atmosphere and heavy reliance on synthesizers. It was popular predominantly in continental Europe (especially in France, Poland, and Belgium) and consisted largely of bands that were heavily influenced by British post-punk acts such as Joy Division and Siouxsie and The Banshees (and these British acts are sometimes referred to as coldwave in those countries).

Whereas Polish coldwave bands such as Siekiera were more directly influenced by guitar-driven post-punk music, French and Belgian artists such as Clair Obscur and Siglo XX incorporated more synths and electronics and crossed over heavily with Minimal Wave and Minimal Synth. Due to the frequent genre-bending nature of these bands, it can be sometimes difficult to classify bands as strictly coldwave, post-punk, or minimal synth, but all of the artists in the coldwave scene shared a dark, cold, and metallic atmosphere and incorporated both guitars and synths.

Re: Your kind of music

That sounds a bit too warm to be categorized in coldwave.

I loved these French guys:



Probably also in the category post-punk/coldwave.

Re: Your kind of music

Yeah, definition helps me find similar sorts but often confuses me at the same time.
Irresistible charm about those tunes around that time (circa 80, before my generation) immediately remind me of black and white visual arts from the world war era.
