    Default In a music Rut... Help.

    I have been listening to the same music for years. I'm stuck. I rarely try anything new because (I'm a dick about music) there doesn't really appear to be any that's good. From what I've read here there seems to be plenty of people with good taste. So I'm asking for suggestions. Here's a little taste of the music I like:

    Modest Mouse
    Ween
    Radiohead
    Pixies
    The Pogues
    Bjork
    PJ Harvey
    Leonard Cohen
    Talking Heads
    Portishead

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Have you heard much of the band "A Perfect Circle"? I think they'd fit quite snuggly in your list there

    Thanks for the suggestion, I checked them out and maybe I'll have to listen to them more. I must say I love Maynard's voice, and I wanted to marry James Iha in 1993.

    I'm kind of a dick about music too, it's only once in a blue moon something will come along that I dig. I tend to dig back through past music for stuff I missed rather than paying much attention to new stuff (I pay attention to new stuff once it's old though! )

    You might like (if you haven't already checked 'em):

    The Verve
    Babybird
    Badly Drawn Boy

    The only newer stuff I've liked recently is MGMT and Cut Copy, but I'm not sure how well it would fall in line with the other stuff you listed. Maybe give it a shot though, do some tasty YouTube sampling

    I don't know what you might like, but since you're an INFJ, we might have similar tastes:

    Lyriel
    Assemblage 23
    The Cruxshadows
    Within Temptation
    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
    Duran Duran
    Billy Joel
    Styx
    Kansas
    Queen

    What do you think?

    Porcupine Tree are similar to Radiohead apparently, and then there's always the Muse, but I doubt you'd like them. Florence and the Machines is a fairly new band you might enjoy, and there was also a really nice singer on TV... I'll find out who it was and edit it in.

    Try Sputnik Music, and Last.fm. That should save you for a while.

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I just put Last.fm on my favorites and I'll play with it throughout the day. I'll check out the other suggestions too. Thanks again.

    P.S. Athenian I love Duran Duran

    Discovering new music that you feel you could really love is one of the best things in the world! Almost like finding little bits of a soul mate.


    Maybe you'd like My Morning Jacket. They are sort of a mix between southern rock, folk, soul, and the Beach Boys.

    You may also like Super Furry Animals if you like slightly deranged pop.

    Queens of the Stone Age, maybe? Most all their music sounds the same but in a good way. Also check out some Beck CD's, I'd reccomend Guero.

    And a woman screamed, and the lights went up, and two men lay stiff and stark...

    SuperServal - I going to check out those postings thanks!

    Willfrey - I really like Beck. Guero was a good album, and as depressing as it was I liked Sea Change... But it must be listened to in small bursts, otherwise

    Thanks guys/girls.
