    Default INFJs - I need your suggestions on music

    I constantly have my iPod on. I'm always looking for new music. Music can really help me... and I'll try not to sound too spiritual-y-ish on you... but it helps me feel more deeply whatever mood I'm in.

    Lately, I've really been feeling melancholy and have enjoyed listening to songs by sigur ros, m38, Portishead, Mandalay... etc.

    I'm looking for more songs/bands that you think I might like!
    Let me know what you INFJs listen to when it's rainy, dark, dreary, outside and you're feeling super contemplative as you drink your coffee/tea.

    I'm familiar with Sigur Ros and M83 (is that who you meant?), but I don't know rokys.

    I always thought Radiohead was pretty damn melancholy as well as some of Amy Winehouse's love songs. There's Aqualung. And Vincent Gallo has a few songs like "So Sad", "Honey Bunny", and "A Falling Down Billy Brown."

    Yeah, I originally meant 'Royksopp'.

    Aaaah yes, Radiohead. I love them too.
    Aqualung? I think I've heard of them/her/him/it.?? I will check those out!

    Thanks, iwakar!

    Are you a fan of Over the Rhine? I like them, though they're a little more contemplative than broody. "Born" is my current play to death song. I love Sigur Ros, too...the language (real or fabricated) is so calming. Emiliana Torrini is another favorite of mine, good old Bjork. Shugo Tokumaru, Imogen Heap, Sufjan Stevens, Jose Gonzalez...and after I'm through my funk, Ben Folds. :P
    I think I think more than you think I think.

    Some Chris Isaak (I Wonder), Ron Sexsmith (Canadian), and argh!! I just lost the other two I was thinking of.

    When you are not looking for wallowing music, The Duhks are an excellent band.

    Anything with piano in it.

    Like that. Where the piano notes sound like rain.

    Sometimes classical piano pieces are nice, too.
