    My girlfriend and I are awfully parochial when it comes to music. The only artists played in our apartment are Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, and Johnny Cash. Some exceptions from time to time include Buena Vista Social Club and Amy Winehouse.

  • edited May 2018 439 karma

    @NotMyName Cohen is my guy. Does Tom Waits get any air time in your apartment?

    Just listened to “Hold On” and “It’s all over” today.

    With a name like Gerth Brooks, I'd expect some country lovin'! :smile:

    My main squeeze is 1950s-1970s tunes (esp disco & soul). I've been on a swing-binge lately. Something about "Sing, Sing, Sing" by Benny Goodman after successfully completing an LSAT section is so rewarding -- haha!

    I also love classical, opera, electronica/trance/house, rap (LeCrae, Aaron Cole) and jazz. Up for (nearly) anything!

    When I need to do some intense studying, I usually listen to the sound of rain. If not, I am a huge fan of soundtracks in general. Everything from films, games, and TV shows. They're normally designed for background/ambiance settings and I have always enjoyed listening to them while being able to focus on studying at the same time. Something I would recommend would probably be Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon's soundtrack as it is an unusual blend of Western and Eastern musical styles. I also really enjoy Desplat's work all around (Harry Potter, The Grand Budapest Hotel, etc.) and our local favorite Hans Zimmer.

    @Micolash Lots of Hans Zimmer for me lately as well. Been keeping the Interstellar soundtrack on repeat while I study. All of the minimalist organ music has been just what I need to stay focused recently.

    Classical music and concert band music. Some of my favorite works include Symphonie fantastique, Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, and Perthshire Majesty.

    And there I was, thinking I'd be the weirdo again and someone drops "Zimmer" and "Interstellar". :smile: :smile:
    I have an entire playlist of scores and soundtracks. I especially like superhero movies (Nolan's Batman series had some great music). The energy gets you going and keeps you moving.
    My other playlist is filled with EDM, 90's (SP, Foo Fighters, etc), some 2000's and other alternative songs. Lindsey Sterling is a big one.

    All of you soundtrack lovers, do you ever listen to "The Score" with Edmund Stone ? Comes on public radio stations...it is pretty sweet, he will sometimes interview composers and typically devotes a show to the work of one composer or to the score of one movie. @AudaciousRed @Micolash @ATLsat_2019

    I go through phases where I either don't listen to much music at all, or else I spend days at a time obsessing over finding recent releases and obscure gems. The only thing I consistently dislike is Nashville Country. If it's contemporary Country, it's Outlaw or nothing as far as I'm concerned. Other than that, I like essentially everything from Bach to NWA, and a lot of what I stumble across outside of the Western tradition.

    A few perennial favorites are Tom Waits (of course), Felice Bros, Bowie, Beethoven, Dre, Townes Van Zandt, The Eels, AC/DC, The Who, Titus Andronicus, and Arctic Monkeys.

    Most recently, I've been on a 90's kick and then revisiting Kate Tempest, a poet turned rapper who released what to me was the best album of 2016: Let Them Eat Chaos.

    Usually smooth jazz during studying (words take my attention away if I know the song; start to jam hard haha) along with my beach bar station on Pandora. I am a big traditional and Texas country fan too (get that bro country outta here!!!!)

  • edited May 2018 439 karma

    @"aviated.wings" haha yeah. I don't though. My name just makes me grin like an idiot. I like that era too. I had a huge doo-wop phase recently.

    @FixedDice Top three favorite composers? Mine are: Rachmaninoff, Bach, Debussy (not in that order(maybe in that order))

    @"Cant Get Right" Me too. I'm in one of those musical phases right now. Outlaw country? Is that an Archer reference?

  • Cant Get RightCant Get Right Yearly + Live Member Sage 🍌 7Sage Tutor

    @"gerth.brooks" Haha, I'd forgotten they do basically a whole season on that! They're actually referencing a real sub-genre which emerged in the 70's and 80's. Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings are probably the most iconic, and they formed the center of the counter movement. But basically anyone working outside of the sound that Nashville labels and producers were demanding gets counted even if they weren't a part of Willie and Waylon's sphere of influence. As bad as the Nashville stuff mostly is, the reaction against it was something of a golden era.

    Wow, what an interesting mix on here! It's cliche, but I really do listen to a little of everything. Granted, a lot more podcasts than music these days. But, I'm a sucker for anything 90s dance/pop, alternative, indie pop, straight up top 40 pop, Broadway soundtracks and some artier things. Lately have been listening to a lot of Sigur Ros in the background while I study. Kinda perfect background music like that, but also you guys got me inspired to rotate in some soundtracks too.

    The assorted list of what gets played the most in my spotify: Carly Rae Jepsen, Sigur Ros, Tegan and Sara, Chvrches, Jimmy Eat World, John Mayer, Matt and Kim, Death Cab for Cutie, Hamilton soundtrack, Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack, Justin Timberlake, Ed Sheeran, Copeland, Bon Iver, and an assortment of standup comedy albums (but that's not music, I know haha).

    I know you guys are talking about favorite type of music and not necessarialy anything LSAT related, but this playlist changed my life. it's very hard for me to focus, study for long period of times, etc. it helped me tremendously. :) here it is:

  • LastLSATLastLSAT Alum Member
    edited May 2018 1028 karma

    I listen to a lot of alt-country, jazz, bluegrass, 70s/80s punk, 90s alt-rock, and traditional folk music from different cultures. As a musician though, I find it far too distracting to listen to anything while I study... there's too much going on in the music that I would rather listen to and learn from instead of just poring over more LSAT material haha.

    @"Cant Get Right" Good to see that Townes Van Zandt made someone else's list! He truly is one of the most underrated song writers in American music. All of the recordings on his Live at the Old Quarter and Whole Coffeehouse albums are pure poetry.

  • 439 karma

    @"Leah M B" Sigur Ros is definitely good study music. I LOVE CHVRCHES, and most all of the other newer synth pop bands with a girl vocalist e.g. Broods, Sylvan Esso, Prutiy Ring

    @taladt99 I like that a lot. Its bringing me back to my days in eve online. Have you ever tried listening to straight binaural beats?

  • Cant Get RightCant Get Right Yearly + Live Member Sage 🍌 7Sage Tutor
    27829 karma

    @LastLSAT , completely agreed. He’s every bit on par with Dylan or Simon, yet remains relatively obscure. I bought a record player just so that I could listen to Old Quarter on vinyl. To really experience it right, crank the heat up and grab a few cheap beers to stay cool!

  • FixedDiceFixedDice Member
    1804 karma

    @"gerth.brooks" That's difficult... I never tried to rank composers. The three that come to my mind at the moment are Berlioz, Saint-Saëns, and Tchaikovsky.

  • edited May 2018 439 karma

    @FixedDice The roster of composers I'm familiar with is kind of limited. Maybe that's why I find it easy to pick favorites. I'm not a "real" classical listener but I do appreciate what classical offers that modern music doesn't. Can't say I've given Berlioz or Saint-Saens a fair shake, but I will.

    @rpadr007 I see what you did there... I wonder what kind of music J.Y. listens to...

    I love Sigur Ros as well! I've been listening to them a lot lately. Incredibly ethereal sounding music -- it has quite the calming effect. Hoppipolla and Sæglópur are my favorites.

    Would you (or anyone else) happen to know of similar-ish post-rock/indie pop bands/artists? I haven't had much success in looking for bands that play music of the same genre...

    For R&B artists, I'm surprised Frank Ocean hasn't been mentioned on this thread--that is, if I haven't missed mention of him. Beyond Frank, you should look into Moses Sumney's new album, Aromanticism, which draws on R&B and neo-soul influences. James Blake's The Color in Everything album is also phenomenal, and it features a more electronic-focused R&B sound. There's also Sampha, whose Process album is similarly an electronic approach to R&B, though with more soul influence. Sampha collaborated with some big-name artists in the industry as a producer before embarking on a solo career. Oh, and I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Anderson .Paak, whose Malibu album I couldn't stop playing for a year.

    For indie-pop artists, I'd recommend Rainbow Kitten Surprise's new album, How to: Friend, Love, Freefall, which flirts with indie-pop and hip-hop genres. Along the same lines, in that they have a similar sound, I'd also encourage you to listen to Magic City Hippies' EP, Hippie Castle EP. (I am not kidding about those names.)

    If you listen to folk and alternative, my favorite artists, by far, are Bon Iver--who also, in a tangential but somewhat related note, collaborated with James Blake on his The Color in Everything album and has other collaborative projects in Volcano Choir and The Shouting Matches--the Fleet Foxes, and Andrew Bird. I'd recommend everything by these artists, though the Fleet Foxes' Helplessness Blues and Bon Iver's Bon Iver album were, and remain, particularly important to me. They both grapple with how to make meaning and sense of the world, and I listened to those albums at a time where that exploration resonated with me.

    Also, if you like classical rock 'n' roll, such as AC/DC or Led Zeppelin (among a litany of others), you should check out Greta Van Fleet. They've crafted a classical rock sound with an astonishing similarity. When I heard them, I couldn't believe they were a contemporary band.

    but I'm a huge bass head, so pretty much anything breakbeat, and steady beat.

    LSAT doesn't leave me with much time for music anymore, but I've been feeling Bonobo lately (jazz/triphop) and Childish Gambino's "This is America" is mad.
