You, sir, name? wrote:Dynatron is arguably some of the best stuff to emerge from the synthwave/retro 80s electro-genre (which is sadly otherwise mostly overrun with unoriginal Kavinsky-clones).

Some samples:
Pulse Power
Fireburner
Unquestionable Judgement
73 Million Horsepower


Really solid, thanks. I'll usually just have a giant random YouTube playlist of those Kavinsky clones playing during work hours, so it'd be nice to mix it up a bit.

My favourite band is They Might Be Giants. (I see they've been mentioned before in this thread, but not since 2008.)

Alternative rock / "geek rock".

But of course I like too much of their stuff to list everything here...

Between the Buried and Me is a nice progressive metal group, I think (I would classify them in hardcore metal though, unlike Tool for instance). Two titles I like are Sun of Nothing and Extremophile Elite

Frank Ocean. His music mixes so many genres - you dance, you get in a dark mood, you smile. His lyrics are so deep and interesting - every song paints an amazing picture. I also love his collaboration with Calvin Harris and Migos, "Slide." I really think that's going to be the song of the summer!

I'm a big fan of this Norwegian DJ, Kygo- his newer stuff isn't so great but some of his old songs are amazing.

If I may make my debut post, after years of absence, with proclamation of my favorite band The Dears.

They're a Canadian indie-pop/rock band with a style attributed to The Smiths.

A great song to get a taste is "To Hold and Have"
Many of man's greatest achievements were largely inspired by a woman.

Maroon 5. Their song One More Night makes me pleased about sexy bad relationships. Adam Levine or however you spell his name is hotness-hotness. And he often sings about dysfunctional relationships or breakups. I love Maroon 5.

Asking Alexandria! Since Danny's back, their work is worth attention again.

I'm really surprised that Wintergatan hasn't been mentioned in here yet.

i would say Marcus Warner. He creates an amazing orchestral-synth-electronic blend that can be listened to for hours on end. Currently one of the most under-rated artists I know of. I would specifically recommend Homeward: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcuv1a8tzz4 as one of his best songs, but it's a hard cut to make. Give this guy some love, he deserves it!
It is his excessive consumption of mushrooms, the have addled his brain and yellowed his teeth!
