cool zam.

stab:

looks like you are into the fast, running line counterpoint math rock stuff. that's one of my favorite flavors but rare to find bands that do it well.

ent:
they had a 5 or 6 song demo that was released in a 100-200 count CD-R w/ inkjet printed case and cd label. because of that, hardly any of these still work since the cd labels warped the cd's they were on.
they also had a 500 print 7" which is still available.

dianogah:
i've always dug them. w/ 2 basses and no guitar they do it well. their best album is out of print, "as seen from above." my order of favorites after that are "old material, new format" and "battle champions." "millions of brazillians" never really made it into my rotation.

castor:
they only had those 2 releases + a few 7"

june of 44:
tropics and sharks are their best albums. they got really weird near the end. my fav song by them is on four great points but i hated anahata. the main song writer used to be in rodan, so you may want to check them out too.

polvo:
probably the most unique indie rock band i'd ever heard. i only like 3-4 songs from every album, but they are solid. today's active lifestyles is probably my fav album.

cars get crushed:
these guys started out pretty heavy (like old june of 44) but lightened up. you hit the stuff in their later era.

sebadoh:
you basically summed up their stuff. bakesale is a masterpiece. harmacy is good. bubble & scrape (which still had eric gafney as a songwriter) is next in line. III is okay. everything else is poop.

further recommendations:
in the vein of ent/dianogah/juanitas:
pele, ghosts & vodka, the swords project, godspeed you black emporer, sharks keep moving, sleeping people
most indie rockers would probably push all kinds of bands i thought were okay but not special: tortoise, maserati, don caballero, the fucking champs, etc.

in the vein of semi-interesting indie/math like june of 44, polvo, etc.:
shellac, thirty ought six, manorastroman?, crain, craw, the crownhate ruin, drive like jehu

in the vein of sebadoh... god.. there used to be so many low-fi semi-dissonant yet light pop hook indie bands. now i can barely think of any.

haha.

my fav artists don't get no cred in the art community.

alberto vargas is the bomb (singular artist, not plural). only artist i know of that could consistently make women look hotter than they really were/are.

well, out of the stuff listed, that's mostly the style that i liked. i'm not really into certain styles, mostly certain sounds. those may seem too similar. what i mean is that i listen for notes or chords that strike me as odd or beautiful or both. maybe it just happens more frequently in these particular types of bands.

have you listened to any of the stuff i recommended? it's funny, some of the suggestions you just made are ones i was considering suggesting to you. i'll check out the others.

i'm also into certain sounds. just so happens that those sounds happen more often in certain styles.

i don't have the music lust i once had.

mmmmk...

Murder by death http://www.myspace.com/murderbydeath - anything from "who will survive and what will be left of them" or "like the exorcist but more breakdancing"
Liars http://www.myspace.com/liarsliarsliars - everything they do is basically nuts. a lot of it is very repetitious. some of it would make for good soundtrack music (to kubrick films maybe).
animal collective http://www.myspace.com/animalcollectivetheband - basically the same description as liars, but they also have some happy music.
the cost http://www.myspace.com/thecostlikesdonkeys - anything off of "chimera" is pretty good
yage http://www.myspace.com/yage5, http://www.myspace.com/yaaage - anything off of "anders leben" is pretty good. i figured you might only have listened to their older stuff so...
yaphet kotto http://www.myspace.com/yaphetkottomusic - again, just a fan site, but if you want to look around... anything from "syncopated synthetic" is good. mix of punk, indie, and a bit of harder stuff.

oxes http://www.myspace.com/oxxes - all the stuff on that page is pretty cool.
the cancer conspiracy http://www.myspace.com/thecancerconspiracy - i like most of what they do. i really liked "the audio medium"

jr ewing http://www.myspace.com/thejrewing - i like stuff from "ride paranoia" a lot. i like most of their stuff though.
is that you? http://www.myspace.com/isthatyou - just really experimental stuff. if you finally get to the end of empathy 2 and 3 (i think), theres a section at the end that i adore.

daughters http://www.myspace.com/daughters1 - it's all pretty creative and nuts.
dead lions http://www.myspace.com/deadlions - all the stuff on that page is neato.
the great redneck hope http://www.myspace.com/3952931 - these guys must have adhd or something. you never hear any part of a song twice. wild stuff.
today is the day http://www.myspace.com/todayistheday - there are other fan pages too. anyhow, most of the stuff from "in the eyes of god" or "amphetamine" is good. and temple of the morning star is on that page. i like that song a lot. they're a little metalish... don't know if you're into that.
kyds vs columbus http://www.myspace.com/kydsvscolumbus - if you don't like love lost you might not like these guys. i think they're way better, but if the style itself is an issue it may not matter. "to prosper too proper" is a neat song (misspelled on that site).
old man gloom http://www.myspace.com/oldmangloom - pretty much metal, just different than most. very drum and bass driven. it's kind of catchy... if metal can be catchy. listen to "hot salvation" and see what you think.

i took out the bands you knew about and the ones that didn't have good songs up.

this is the band i'm involved in right now. just now finished one song and we'll have others up soon enough. we have wacky influences so our music is a little strange to most:
