You may not even have a clue that these genres existed.

 

If your dreams were half as pleasant as this genre, you would be flying on unicorns over a trailing choir of singing dolphins, through cotton candy clouds illuminated by rainbow moonbeams from the laugh­ing moon. Many big dream pop bands present their sound through specific combinations of synths, pianos, guitars, and beats that uniquely define them and make it difficult to group their sound with other bands.

Beach house – Zebra M83 – Wait Raconte-Moi Histoire The XX – VCR The Antlers – Hounds Active Child – You Are All I See

It’s a genre we all know, but many have forgotten. The sun-kissed twang of the guitars, the drums basic repetitiveness, they’re the combined sounds that remind us of sandy beaches, lazy days without the guilt, and paralysis-inducing sunburns. The surf pop of today, however, doesn’t exude sugary sunshine to the extent of the late 60’s, early 70’s. It has just enough rock to keep you from rolling off your surfboard in exhaustion and is still cool enough to put you in the shade under a mango tree.

If you sent almost any contemporary style of music and baroque music through the large Hadron Collider, their collision, if not creating a black hole, would birth baroque pop. It takes the new squeaky-clean arrangements of todays pop, hip-hop, folk, rock, etc., and couples it with the eternally epic sounds that resonate back to the classical period. While not many bands are through-and-through baroque pop, there are numerous bands with songs powered by classical strings. Keep in mind though, that excessive listening of baroque pop may prompt you to try bringing periwigs back in style. Don’t.

Studyin, boppin, chillin, it doesn’t really matter what you’re doing, chillwave would probably sit perfectly in the background. It’s a genre that really takes after its name, pouring over with tranquil beats drizzled in soft electronic rhythms. While driven by swooping loops and ambient vocals (if any) chillwave also offers a fair share of bubbly tunes. Be forewarned though, when listening to anything chill¬wave you may accomplish more dancing than studying.

Miami horror- I Look At You Washed out – Feel it All Around, Amor Fati Neon Indian – Polish Girl Toro y Moi – Biessa/Minors Tycho – A Walk

For many, this genre may be a stretch, but not all freak-folk may be what you think. It’s defined by its use and experimentation of different sounds, but know that it’s generally not like Yoko Ono yelling into a mic for five minutes (seriously…google it). Similar to experimental rock, bands still hang on to the folk or rock roots but can play around with structure, at parts giving the music a chaotic resonance. But before you completely bypass this genre, bands that are considered freak-folk still offer undoubtedly catchy, and in some cases, beautiful tunes. All I’m saying is give freak folk a chance.
