    Music I like usually must have:

    • some element of repetition
    • some sort of 'kinetic' feel
    • synthesizer is acceptable as long as it's tasteful
    • some element of harmony


    So this covers everything from OK Go and Franz Ferdinand to Philip Glass and sundry fugues. Oh, fugues especially are awesome.

    My current obsessions are psychobilly/gothabilly, horrorpunk and indie rock.

    In a few months who knows.

    I listen to a lot of electronica, especially ambient music... mostly because I love the abstraction and the unique textures.
    Sound art is really inspiring to me. It reminds me of random, sometimes weird memories from years and years ago. I love that.

    Same here! I also agree with Boards of Canada.
    Geogaddi was what got me into ambient.

    I do also like Foxy Shazam (though no one knows who they are... yet), System of a Down, Daft Punk, The Flaming Lips, Nine Inch Nails, Yoko Kanno... and a lot more. I do like some power/speed metal, but I've started to kind of grow bored of it as it all seems to sound the same. The stuff I like tends to be multi-layered, though this isn't always the case. But I don't get tired of complex music nearly as quickly as other stuff.
    Yoko Kanno's work is genius.

    I tend to like shoegaze (dream pop, really) and psychedelic music. I just don't know of too many bands that play the kind of sound I like, but whatever, I'll do more searching sometime. I also enjoy listening to rock, and instrumental music (I would say classical, but a lot of classical music bores me.) A lot of the stuff I listen to is Japanese indie rock, mainly because I love the sound of the Japanese language and because Japan has some really kickass bands and artists. the pillows, anyone?


    EDIT: Green Bird by Yoko Kanno is AMAZING.

    Funk.

    I like some songs of the various rock genres (not much into metal, punk, or emo), some hip-hop and R&B, some electronic/trance, and some oldies. As someone said earlier, a song-by-song basis is necessary to explain my tastes.

    However, as of late I've come to appreciate the musical brilliance that is the funk style. I may start a thread on it later, if no one has done so already.

    Playing funk bass with a good drummer feels like...winning.

    Outside of pop as such, well.

    Twentieth century classical is often interesting. Shostakovich, Mahler. Some stuff that bridges the Classical and Romantic eras -- Brahms, say.

    And German cabaret music -- Kurt Weill -- yes indeed. Cab Calloway comes pretty close to an American parallel.

    Hi de hi de hi de ho!

    I see a bunch of parallels between cabaret music and the post-punk movement. Same mentality, and many of the same conclusions.
