Note that Rodrigo Amarante, is a Brasillian singer who usually sings in Brasilian portuguese, but sings in spanish on this song.
I think the genre is Latin America Bolero. The song is in 4/4 time but, I feel like I want to move like a walz and "attach" the 1 and 2. The time signature is
|| 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 ||
|| Ooooooooone | Two | Three ||
So, I'd probably put this song under
If you're looking for more like it, maybe try Progressive Rock / Progressive Metal, there are plenty of bands that overlap the two (something like Dream Theater maybe).
I'd qualify that by labeling this as blues-rock. "Cocaine" is a modified 12-bar blues. If you search for blues albums from the 1970s and 1980s, you'll find plenty there. Try Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, and even the late B.B. King. Guys who sound like Clapton would be more those who came up in the UK in the 1960s, like Rory Gallagher and Jeff ...
The genre of that song is "swing" and/or "big band jazz". The kind of dancing they're doing in that video is essentially swing dancing.
The song is "Sing, Sing, Sing (With a Swing)", by Louis Prima. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sing,_Sing,Sing(With_a_Swing). The recording in that video is almost certainly the version with Benny Goodman on clarinet ...
Art Tatum is primarily known as a Jazz artist.
As bebop began to take control of jazz in the early 1950s, Tatum
continued playing variations of the stride piano style, mostly at
small clubs throughout the country. In 1953, Tatum tracked a record
124 solos for noted producer Norman Granz and while the sessions were
hasty, they yielded material for ...
Darkside (Nicolas Jaar & Dave Harrington) is an exceptionally talented and unique duo. About a year ago I was lucky enough to see them at an intimate Brooklyn venue that no longer exists (RIP Glasslands).
You'll have trouble finding another band quite like them, though it's probably fair to say they exhibit traits of trip-hop, electronica, downtempo, ...
I'd say it's a modern take on Plainchant / Gregorian chant: solo voice, modal harmonies, long melody lines. If you're looking for similar, you can either go for the original - something like this traditional 'Agnus Dei', or a modern recreation, something like this : Michael John Poirier - Album: Stone by Stone. Because this style is "different" and ...
There are several different genres that use orchestration. If it's jazz, we generally call it "big band," although there is also something called "orchestral jazz", as well as wide repertoire of jazz-influenced classical music. Similarly, there is an actual subgenre called "orchestral rock" (think Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir").
But this particular song is "...
It's Ragtime, though there's a dependence on how much the piano dominates the arrangement over the horns. Once the horns & woods [clarinet etc] start to take over, then it becomes more Trad Jazz, which some might term Dixieland. [If I remember my musical history correctly, dixieland doesn't have to have a piano at all, it's sometimes banjo instead.]
This is a de-tuned (deliberately out-of-tune) piano, with a heavy amount of reverb added. It is made yet more eerie with the addition of some dissonant (violin-family) string instruments. Reverb, which suggests a big empty chamber, and dissonance, which can introduce a feeling of "wrongness," are two of the most common techniques for making something sound ...
You may be looking for "outsider music". Daniel Johnston, who passed away earlier this week, was perhaps the most famous modern "outsider artist."
Outsider music (from "outsider art") is music created by self-taught or naïve musicians. The term is usually applied to musicians outside the music establishment or who exhibit childlike qualities, and ...
This is no one subgenre, but there are definitely parameters. It's basically mainstream jazz of the years after Dixieland went out, but before smooth jazz was invented. There's a lot of swing, some Chicago style, some bebop, some Hot Club (gypsy swing). It's more small ensembles than Big Bands. There's a lot of vocals (but no scat), and some soul mixed ...
At the risk of giving an underwhelming answers -- and bear in mind that music styles are subjective and overlapping -- after reading your question, listening to the tracks, and reviewing various articles, I think the style would simply be described as the intersection of the following:
Pizzicato (as you mentioned)
You could add ...
Orientalist is an adjective used, generally critically, to describe art produced by non-Asians towards the goal of imitating Asian and Middle Eastern art. Such art can have its own strengths and merits, but is generally considered stereotypical and non-authentic. The term is most often applied to the 19th century European visual arts craze for all things "...
That's some good ol' country blues. Compare these examples (literally the first two that came up in a search for that term on YouTube):
Country blues is a direct descendant of the original folk and rural blues styles that represented an early American adaption of ...
Chiptune is a modern music genre inspired by the songs that played on classic video game and computer consoles like the Amiga. It uses the same kind of crudely synthesized electronic sounds featured in your clip, and often is inspired by the same 80's pop electronica that was popular when such songs were originally made.
For a recent band with a similar ...
Clint Black is an american country singer.
His song 'Something that we do' was released in 1997 and contains the lines
Love is wide, love is long
Love is deep and love is strong
Love is why I love this song
And I hope you love it too
Thus, I guess this might be the song you are looking for.
The melody the song uses is often found as "The Finnish Polka". It can be classified as "Scandinavian Folk" or "Nordic Folk". The tune itself has also been adopted by some Celtic musicians, so you may find a similar style music in the Celtic Tradition as Celtic Mouth Music.
In this case the tune uses the natural Minor scale. Some of the melodies of both ...
Thanks for reminding me about this rather brilliant work which I haven't heard in a long time.
Now, genre classification is always a tricky business and this piece is indeed hard to classify, as it is rather unique in its combination of multiple genres; there are elements of at least (that I can think of) disco-sound, progressive rock, and electronic music....
Vocaloïd is a singing/voice -synthesis- (or emulation) software, which as it implies does not just consist in sound banks but voice synthesis algorithms that can be used with different kinds of voice.
Because in Japan and North Korea the "digital" culture has been around and fully integrated in the popular culture since the 90s, it is not odd that some ...
Beautiful blue sky - Ought - Post Punk
The leanover - Life without buildings - Indie Rock with post punk influences
0:30 Gleiches Ambiente - Die Goldenen Zitronen - feels like Avant Garde but I'm not really sure
This is a dirge
A dirge is a somber song or lament expressing mourning or grief, such as would be appropriate for performance at a funeral
The harpsichord figures give it a baroque sound.
The Baroque is a highly ornate and often extravagant style of architecture, music, dance, painting, sculpture and other arts ...
Saving Abel are usually described as a riff-heavy post-grunge band with Southern rock influences. For a good description of these and related genres, as well as a list of similar Artists, check out AllMusic or any online music recommendation system.
I'd say that they're not the same genre, but they have things in common :
(mostly) uplifting melody, sung quite high, and as you say, fast-paced, and non-repetitive words.
Except for the Simon Curtis track, other websites (wikipedia etc) tag Skillet, Imagine Dragons and One Republic with several genres, but one in common "alternative rock". For me "...
This is a Hip-Hop / Rap Song and not Rock.
As to why it can't be called Rock, it would need one to spell out the specific differences between the two styles. Though, in general, an educated guess can usually be made by the following few factors:
A rock song would quite prominently contain the extended plays of Electric Guitar rhythms and melodies,...
