Listen some guitar music
Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Comets On Fire, Joy Division.
I listened to those (we have this great Spotify service here in Finland) and got to say, not really what I was looking for. I feel like I have heard enough of guitar music that is after all pretty traditional (maybe new compositions but still doing same tricks with guitar that has been done ages ago). If I like to listen to rock I'll just put on some Deep Purple. Though, maybe this question isn't so important after all, I mean, a lot of music works as mono as well as kind of lo-fi. Also experimental stuff.
Hmm, I so totally disagree with you on about every thing you say here.
But else maybe try some more experimental stuff like Heavy Winged. If you play it at the right volume your neighbors will love you for it.
Or else just go for some good old plastikman. Always good to bounce through the garden.
For me: I always have music on. Most of the time I am just doing useless stuff on the internet. Or while I am at work I am working.
But while I am doing this stuff I can also listen very well...
The "problem" for me is that I have a huge collection* (as others here will probably also have) and buy way too much. That is why there is ALWAYS music on, no matter what.
That's what I thought. I personally don't listen to that much stuff. I don't feel like I should listen to everything...
My advice: keep it like that...I am just a crazy collector and always looking for new stuff to feed my brain with.
But sometimes I go completely crazy with all the stuff I have and have just heard once or twice.
there's a lot of good but also a lot of music that has nothing to give to me. I listen to music of almost all genres, usually I search for new interesting artists and then get to know them. One album or self-made playlist (I listen to everything from computer) is enough for one day. If something's really hard to digest, I may first listen to it not so "intently", and then later "intently" (bad word...), then it'll be easier to digest. For example, I did that with Lady Gaga It's more difficult than Mika Vainio IMO... But the point is that less is more, at least for me
Everyone has his or her own choices and ways for listening I guess.
I personally find it less hard to listen to Wolf Eyes or Hecker than listening to Lady Gaga. But for me that has to do with taste. I don't like Lady Gaga, so that makes it hard to listen to for me. For me it has nothing to do with something being complex or not, because I also have a lot of problems with for example Dream Theater, which is quite complex music.
At this moment I am going back to bouncing through the house...Plastikman - Closer
a true classic of minimal techno :-)
