There is a pretty huge resurgence of shoegaze at the moment, lots of newer bands are co-opting the original sound and incorporating other musical textures in to it.

I think that song is from "Lady and the Tramp." Si and Am gave Siamese cats an unfair reputation for being mean, which they weren't at all, just naughty. There is a big difference!


Ah yes, I stand corrected.

I like Siamese cats, particularly black-pointed ones.

Yeah, I've kind of noticed. Nothing quite as xciting as the original scene, though, IMO.

I think if you're already alienated from society it's more likely that you'll explore different music types than the mainstream.

That is so true. Is it a cause and effect, like aspergers causing the alienation which causes the music taste, or is the music taste inherent in aspergers? I think it's the former.

I mostly listen to underground stuff. As a Utahn, that doesn't say much because here Panic! At The Disco is technically underground. So I should say, I don't listen to what everybody else already does. There's a handful of other kids here that like the same stuff I do, and even then, none of them know Bad Omens, which is my favorite band.

I listen to kpop. Its niche and not exactly mainstream so I don't exactly go around telling people I listen to it.

I go from Blondie to Tupac to Burzum whenever I put all my music on random, I like music that speaks to me don't care what genre it is.

This sounds really weird, but I have a tape of the national anthems of various countries. This interest goes along with my interest in different countries.

Since when is not listening to mainstream music considered weird?

I listen to a variety of genres, I like bleak and depressive stuff like doom or black or gothic metal or post-punk. I also like atmospheric and psychedelic stuff very much, e.g. post-rock. I love electric guitars and I also like stuff that is neither dark nor atmospheric, but more danceable and uplifting like Franz Ferdinand or The Strokes (even though they're clearly influenced by post-punk riffs, so maybe there's a connection?). I like electronic stuff if it's melodic/psychedelic/atmospheric (I don't like really monotonous music like minimal). I also like some mainstream music, mainly the electronic type with female voices.... sometimes I just want some catchy tunes.
So, mostly, it comes down to rock music somehow. I love genre-bending bands like Oceansize.

May favorite band is Radiohead, I guess that's both very mainstream (as they are really successful) and a bit anti-mainstream at the same time :D

But as an Aspie I only know ONE person that knows some of the stuff that I listen to, and he is a music teacher. So..
And that also make me a lonely person, cuz where I live there is no club,bar or whichever place that plays what I listen to.

You know any of these?

Philip Glass
Aphex Twin
Autechre
Godspeed you! Black emperor
Labirinto

and lots more


I know Godspeed you! Black emperor and Aphex Twin. I often heard about Autechre and Philip Glass but never actually listened to them. Never head of Labirinto, though.

I prefer metal, which I suppose is considered "weird" for a woman, particularly one who is small and timid. Not what people would expect of me at all, if they don't know me well. I don't like most pop music simply because that's all I heard at college, and now at work (retail), so I'm just really tired of it. I don't think my musical preferences really have anything to do with my Asperger's, although one of my obsessions is the band Tool.

Tool are really outstanding, I wish they would do a tour in Europe :/ Last time they did, I didn't know them yet.

anti_gone, I feel you there. I discovered Tool a year after they had a concert in my area. That's probably the only concert I'd think would be worth the severe sensory issues I'd have with the noise.
