    Looking for good music of any genre other than "death metal", R&B or rap. Preferably "for adults" and non-conformist. I wish I could find a site with HD sound...

    Check these out:

    This one is a classic, the vocals are sampled from a "real" exorcism. I love "come out Jezebel, come out... You have no right to her...her husband is the head of the house"

    Didn't listen to your selections, can't right now.

    Suitcase Junket has an interesting thing going. One man band with hand made instruments, and he throat sings/whistles some. Idk how non conformist he is.

    The Vienna Vegetable Orchestra doesn't get here too often: they played at the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 2010 and I missed it. After concerts they turn their instruments into vegetable soup and serve it to the audience.

    Orchestra members on the fine art of making music with vegetables:


    They are finally getting international distribution with their third CD. I had to order the first one from Germany, expensive but worth it for their rendition of Johann Strauss Sr.'s Radetzky March.

    Newer Anathema. They started as doom metal, but evolved into some beautiful music.

    The talking heads and neutral milk hotel are on my long list of favorites.

    Here's some of what I've been listening to the most lately. All over the place but it all fits your criteria.
    The mountain goats, atoms for peace, Jose Gonzalez, Jeffrey lewis, the tallest Man on earth.

    I'm always on the lookout for new music, I'll be keeping an eye on this thread. Check out pitchfork.com if you haven't yet. Excellent reviews and reccomendations to be found there.

    Well, Ratatat is a good one, Chromeo is too. Maybe do some searching for some mainstream or big name artists for their side projects, can yield some cool stuff. Like Saul Williams "Niggy Tardust" which was produced by Treat Resnor (NIN singer). It's classified as spoken word because Saul is a performance poet, but is something interesting.

    I picked a random song of Jose G's - good stuff!

    Do you like Robyn Hitchcock (this song gets good at about :22"


    How about old REM?


    Brian Eno doesn't get much popular acclaim, despite his profound influence.

    I always recommend some mark lanegan. I've loved his work ever since he was in The Screaming trees. He has a lot of stuff out there.[video=youtube_share;dCa9BBVeTjo]http://youtu.be/dCa9BBVeTjo[/video]

    I like the Cocteau Twins. Nice and mellow.


    I LOVE Daft Punk:
    Not the full song, but I like this video

    Pretty into Dubstep (turn the volume down or you might lose speakers. If you have good speakers, crank the bass):


    Other bands I like: Dire Straits, Alisson Krauss and Union Station, the 1975, the Piano Guys, Sam Smith, Zac Brown Band, Skrillex, Rush, Blind Melon, Coldplay, Deadmau5. That's just a few.

    I discovered this guy from a TV commercial. I love the first line of this song^ and cool album cover. Great musician. Not too unusual but not something you hear on commercial radio.
