Or, that no music is weird? That music is only weird when it is what you are unfamiliar with?

I see pop music like that and when people end up dancing on it, it gets worse...

Yeah, I'm into music, but I agree music seems an irrational, even ridiculous way of expressing things. I've felt that way mostly while I was depressed and apathetic, but I still 'get' it with certain music.

I guess I should let people listen to my home-made audio productions if they really like weird non-NT stuff. xD

I haven't listened to this in a while and I decided to so I thought it would be cool to see if anyone else likes it.
Portishead is the bomb, especially if you tend to like some sad music. The singer just sings sad songs a lot, but she captures that feeling better than most singers I've heard. I would class Portishead as "Acid Jazz" either way they freaking rock! Check out their Roseland NY concerts on youtube if you haven't already, they are so intense.

oh and I saw someone post a beefheart vid... Reminded me of this lil weird video. None of my friends understand the mysterious and weird Captain Beefheart.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLdRh7qdi_g[/youtube]

Since I see this thread again, I may as well add some more. The ending section of this song is basically electronic noise made into music, which totally blew me away the first time I heard it and is still impressive:

By the same artist (Nine inch nails) is the somewhat less arguably weird album Ghosts, which is a rather long collection of theme pieces, some of which are strange.

A different artist I found recently has some odd songs. The following song is somewhat unnerving along with its video, because both are nice on the surface but the viewer has knowledge beyond the surface themes (while it's pretty, it hints at the issues of cults, illustrating it with one in particular).

This one is a little weird, too, but is more sci fi. Bonus points for playing both of these 2 songs by The Boards of Canada at the same time. They need to be offset by approx 3 seconds (with the 2nd one delayed) for it to work right.

Portishead has been described by some as "Trip-Hop." Other groups in this genre include Massive Attack and Life In Mono. I don't understand what would make one call it "weird", other than it isn't Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, fill in the blank artist-that's-popular-this-fifteen-minutes.


This. FFS, why did it take someone so long to say it? Also, it doesn't get "weirder" than Nurse With Wound or Current 93. Or my latest discovery, Kreng.
