J. Dan Posted October 31, 2018 Share Posted October 31, 2018 A lot of times the more electronic styles of music tend to be pop, dance, or if it's rock, still guitar oriented with great playing but on organ, AP/EP, or a minimoog solo. I'm a fan of electronic music, but don't want it all happy, and still prefer decent songwriting to just mind numbing exercises in making beats and cool sounds. In my younger days, I've been a rabid fan of Depeche Mode and Soft Cell (nto tainted love - listen to "art of falling apart" album). I eventually got into NIN and some of the other industrial stuf that's more aggressive/heavy and eventually seemed to still be pretty guitar heavy. I suppose people might drive me towards EMO but most of it just hasn't resonated with me. I was also a huge fan of the first Sneaker Pimps album but was disappointed with everything that came after. I like Portishead to a lesser extent - not enough diversity in the songs for me. I like Garbage quite a bit though again, less electronic and more guitar but at least it's in the ballpark. Any suggestions of anything I may have missed over the years or anything new? Hopefully I gave a good enough idea of what I'm looking for.
