So, I'd probably put this song under Rock Progressive Rock Symphonic Rock 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, ...

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 || ...

I asked Raison and he said the vocals were Tuvan Throat Singing:

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.] A ...

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 ...

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 ...

Have you checked Swans? At the time of these recordings, they talked about being heavily influenced by them. Haven't listened much to Swans, but they do have some pretty heavy recordings...

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: Soundtrack Pizzicato (as you mentioned) Neoclassical 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): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-kH82K8dCs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsqTkkUzH5w 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.

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....

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

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 would class them as indie music, even though they are similar the tracks probably fall into more than one genre with Skillet being more Christian Rock and One Republic being more indie rock.


2

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: Music: A rock song would quite prominently contain the extended plays of Electric Guitar rhythms and melodies,...

Nope. It is a rap song by DMX.

Progressive is also correct but pretty generic, the styles dredg play are usually referred as Crossover Prog (a prog combination of alternative style with indie elements) and Post/Math/Experimental. "Canyon Behind Her" was the first Dredg song I heard and I really liked it. Here are some definitions from Progarchives: Crossover Prog Post Rock/Math Rock ...

If I had to pick (which, like you said, is extremely hard), I would personally consider Terraria's soundtrack to be electronic orchestral music. When you listen to a lot of the sounds in the music (especially the boss themes), you will start to notice a lot of crossovers between the two genres. I wouldn't say chiptune however, because the way chiptunes are ...
