    The newer Flaming Lips stuff is some good lo-fi psychedelic (mainly this and stuff on Embryonic)

    but I'm also interested in anything people have to offer

    Anyone listen to Swans? I just bought The Seer and it's quite surreally beautiful.

    Never properly listened to the Swans. They are on of those bands I know about but could never really figure out a good place to start listening. I think I will try and give them a few listens right now. . . . .

    . . . . I was expecting something a lot noisier and more abrasive. They seem a bit mellow. Still might want to check out some more of them later.

    Generally when I think noise rock I think stuff like this. But I have yet to hear any noise band that intense and even then I am finding this song not as noisy as a remembered. (not that I have heard many noise bands, just Sonic Youth, Big Black, Butthole Surfers and now Big Black

    I wouldn't really compare them to Sonic Youth, Butthole Surfers, etc. I'm getting much more of a GY!BE vibe from them. Really enjoying the album though, all two hours of it X)

    Swans are fantastic. I passed up a chance to travel out of town to watch them which I really regret. Their live performances are supposed to be really hard-hitting

    I've been listening to that album more and more and I'm liking it even more with every listen. It's just so ominously surreal.

    I know it was mentioned that Zazie was thinking they'd be more noisier and more abrasive, but that was only really their early stuff. Since their reformation they are pretty melodic, and less focussed on percussive and rhythmic motifs.

    And on the discussion of Noise Rock, stuff like A Place To Bury Strangers self titled, Ceremony's Rocket Fire, Skywave's Synthstatic may be worth listening to.

    I haven't listened to any of those, but Shellac's At Action Park, Chrome's Half Machine Lip Moves, and Einsturzende Neubauten's Kollaps, particularly if you like things more industrial, are also good noise rock albums. Boredoms and Lightning Bolt are also worth checking out if you don't mind weirding things up a little.

    Based Fantano has already gotten me into a good number of artists this year. Two of the best albums:

    Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra's album Fuck Off Get Free We Pour Light On Everything is AWESOME. It's like a more exciting version of GY!BE with vocals (and I'm not saying GY!BE is boring, they are not.) But seriously, give this a listen. And yes, I'm aware it might remind me of GY!BE because it's kind of a side project.

    And also An Autumn For Crippled Children's Try Not To Destroy Everything You Love. Maybe this belongs in the metalheads thread, i don't know, but it's pretty different metal than what's usually there. Kind of like Deafheaven.

    Does someone here have something like Skid Row and Cinderella to recommend? I am in love with those both, and got myself two albums of them. Yet, I'm not satisfied. Someone?

    Lately I've been getting into Chocolate Starfish, does any have suggestions for similar bands?

    Hadn't heard of them before but I just gave a listen to some of their songs, and man... it's fantastic. Not typically a fan of the sprawling prog rock epic-type songs, but I really dig it. All the hooks thrown in there make everything sound really well-crafted.

    early swans (first two albums) is abrasive and noisy, after that they venture more into folk, post punk, etc depending on the album

    I've been searching the internet for a place to stream it and couldn't find it! It wasn't on Spotify last time I checked!

    The excitement is killing me. p4k gave it a 9.2

    Edit: It's up on Spootify now. I really like it. It's just as creepy and disturbing as I'd hoped. As a whole I'd say it's not as noisy as The Seer, but a few songs are even moreso (Oxygen).
