Okay I'm sick of listening to mainly alt-rock (or whatever you want to call it) so I thought I'd ask for some suggestions of current bands that actually know what the fuck they're doing. I know it's a bit weird coming on to a SY board saying that I'm sick of rock, but that is the situation.

Please, by all means, recommend some good rock, but not just mediocre stuff that's alright. Some recommendations for good electronic music would be welcomed as well. Not techno or its variations though, as highly regarded as they are, I don't really like it. Hell, recommend anything, so long as it's ball bustingly good.

Look forward to some suggestions to get me a bit more interested in music again. I'm in a rut and need to get out.

Here's a somewhat mainstream suggestion for you (I suggest them because they, er, get my mojo goin')

The Avalanches

If you haven't already heard of them, group from Australia that does some electronic stuff. Mostly upbeat. I like blaring them in the car and dancing like a jackass.

The album that most recently busted my balls was Out To Lunch by Eric Dolphy. Even if you don't like Jazz, give it a try. Of course, it's not very new...

Thanks for the recommendations I'll check them both out. I love jazz! Just bought another Miles album today. Thinking of getting some more "out there" shit like sun ra but I want some modern stuff as well so...

noumenal, do you get vinyl? I'm just asking because I found a nice blue note re-issue of that album. Just wondering if you know whether they're any good or not.

I say give can a shot if you haven't... chk chk chk too. Not the most unknown type things, but i myself haven't left the realm of alt-rocky too far.

ANd while we're reccomending, does anyone know any good krautrock/electro-rock music?

I don't really do the vinyl thing, sorry.

Here are some more Jazz recommendations:

Peter Brotzmann - Machine Gun
Sun Ra - Atlantis
Mingus - The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady
Marilyn Crispell - Band on the Wall

Electronic Music that blew my mind:
Ryoji Ikeda - 0 Degrees Celsius

What is Beherit's The Oath of Black Blood like? I like some of the songs I've heard, which is not much. Really raw and primitive, rather than "pure black metal" it's more like thrash/death metal played in black metal style.
