A thread for true music explorers to share and discover unheard albums, genres, and all around good music from all over the world.
Let's make this a huge catalog; a "go to" thread for everyone who loves to discover new music.
I like Silk Road 3, but Kitaro has a lot of shit I can't get into. That said, "Tao" is one of the most beautiful songs I know.
>tfw have an original Japanese pressing of Silk Road 3 still with the obi strip
It's one of my favorite records, even if it isn't that rare. The artworks is so beautiful.
>An album by Vektroid, Very rare and elusive. This was supposed to be released on cassette through Will Burnett's label (the guy behind Internet Club) but never materialized, and was only circulated in file form to a few people.
I have it if anyone is curious to listen, It's pretty good
That is not an obscure album at all. it's good though
Anyone who hasn't listened to Clube da Esquina by Milton Nascimento totally should. It's like a better Brazilian Beach Boys album. One of the best "world music" albums
Andres Jimenez's Cantata album
The poetry in the lyrics of the 2nd and 3rd track are beyond sublime. If you understand Spanish, and enjoy Caribbean ballad type music(with it's wonderful acoustic guitars), you may enjoy this album.
If the Gerogerigegege were a hardcire punk band this would be it
Criminally underrated gem
A Spanish conductor directs a Chinese prodigy and her Italian instrument(a Stradivarius); the sounds they create are magical. I love this album!
Surely you've heard some of these classical works before, now hear her rendition of them.
Album is a bit hard to find, and you won't see it on YouTube-unfortunately.
...but if you like classical, then this album should definitely be in your collection.
the album has never been fully leaked by someone yet, all we have is an excerpt from one of the tracks on the album: Enjoy
Hopefully we will someday hear this in it's entirety
Goat - Let it Bleed. It's like some sort of weird tribal punk.
HipHop group from Winnipeg, super chill shit to just jam out to
Around This Town:
Le Shok - We Are Electrocution
The most dirtiest gritty synthpunk you'll ever fucking hear. This is their only "album"
electronic folk mostly
figured i'd tell you guys that this will actually be coming out on a friend's label soon (for real!). no solid date and i don't want to reveal what label tho. sorry for dropping the ball on this one so long ago!
each of his albums only have 1 rating on RYM
experimental ambient, mostly lo-fi
The Dream in Captivity includes some field recordings too
Someone posted this in daily album thread.
It's probably one of my favourite albums.
It's post-rock music without guitar.
What a nice idea, OP!
And what a great opportunity to introduce everyone to the German post-rap scene which I love so much (which as the name suggests is to rap what post-rock is to rock).
Here are some important projects for anyone who wishes to get into this:
(basically the entirety of artists releasing under the actual record label called postrap (postrap.de) combined in what can be considered a supergroup)
(Basically the most well known post-rap MC, whose style is characterized largely through a lack of rhymes, heavy industrial beats and line-by-line association based writing)
(My personal favorite. Niklas Wandt is a prolific German free jazz drummer, who is also one of Germany's most experimental MCs. His first solo album as Illoyal features an interesting mix of dissonant free-jazz style beats and experiamental rap style often abandoning rhymes. His lyrics are enigmatic and his vocabulary immense. Later releases were produced by electronic musician Bassdeaph and went in a more ambient and industrial influenced direction. Their album "Das Krankenhaus ist unendlich" is a truly unique psychedelic experience.)
Other important artists include:
-Real Geizt & Splidttercrist
