Enjoying Unordinary Music

When I say “unordinary” I mean out of the ordinary for myself. If you asked me if I would like Icelandic post-rock with an ethereal sound I’d probably say no, but here’s an example that would prove me wrong.

Sigur Ros – Gobbledigook:

Any bands or songs that you’ve come across that you were surprised you liked?

  1. Not surprising they are great. I have to credit Kevin “Mikey” whatever his last name was for turning me on to that when we used to meet in my apartment for “Instant Church” group.

    I don’t think there is much music that has surprised me, I’ve had a pretty wide taste.

    I guess surprise would come when I start liking Pop-Country (AKA Today’s Country) Pop-Crap (The stuff Idol emulates and produces: Spears and all the rest I don’t know much about) Hip Hop/Rap/Gangster whatever they call it now a days or That terribly repetitive Latin Beat crap (think “buh dunk ah” x 1000 and there’s your song)

  2. Sigur Ros is one of my favorite bands ever and I’m glad you like them! Check out their DVD “Heima”. It’s the best band DVD that I’ve EVER seen by a longshot.

    Also, if you like Sigur Ros and want some more post-rock stuff, check out: MONO, Explosions In The Sky, This Will Destroy You, and Mogwai. You won’t be disappointed!

  3. Post-rock love on the blog ring makes me happy!

    I think I’ll do a post-rock genre blog post and post a whole bunch of youtube and myspace content so people can check out new bands. Best (nearly)unheard of genre.
