multi-instrumentalists and changing in their style. I was thinking about this today. My two all-time favorites Beck and Keller Williams both play several instruments and change their style from one album to the next. Beck moreso than Keller with changing his style but Keller moreso than Beck with multi-instrumentalism.

is there a common thread in your favorite artists?

...users of Autotune. :funny1:

Hard for me to pin this down. I have a wide variety of musical tastes.

beck and keller, eh?
sorry dude, i loved you and thought you were AWESOME but you LOVE keller? :undecided:
:funny1:

1 out of 2 isnt bad - i dig the eff outta beck :dance:

my favorites tend to be bluegrass bands with drum kits who play bluegrass like they are playing led zeppelin :Phishfolk:
(i.e. Cornmeal and Cabinet)
i am a sucker for that shit and could dance all day to either of these bands :heart:

Yeah, I'm a really big fan. I'll drive over 200 miles to see him whenever I can. He's a frumpy music dork that can rock a theremin. Who rocks a theremin?

I don't hate montbleau! I just would rather listen to a monkey pee on a snare drum or even auto tuned Cher then that boring strum-a-lum crap that you could swear you've heard before even when you haven't, because it's so base and unimaginative it blends so easily with the whole worthless genre.

bahaha just kidding he's all right ;)

I'm gonna strap you down somewhere in the VIP tent for Keller and feed you candy until the unnaturally high seretonin levels in your synaptic clefts force you to love him.

HE JAMS A THEREMIN :lol:

Artists that fuse multiple genres and create something new and original. I was a punk kid that eventually became heady so I lean twoard darker and louder in general

no lyrics/singing in general. If it has lyrcis, Id rather they be in another language, so the meaning is lost, but the sounds become rhythms....

I feel you actually lose meaning when you define the "theme" by using words. Instrumental music keeps it open for the listener to interpret as they wish...

i like the ones that make me laugh.

and the ones that fall under: "it's a trip, it's got a funky beat, and I can bug out to it"

ps.. i also LOVE Keller. Like we didn't already know that. :lol:

My favorite artists all have very vivid imaginations. Most of them are deeply weird.

All your favorite bands indeed suck!

i can appreciate anyone who rocks a theremin. not to mention he's a super kind person which is rare in the musician world. ;) one of the kindest people overall i've ever met in my life. he freestyles like no other too :)

I dig diversity and shit that's DIFFERENT.
You can rock a 4 part harmony all you want - but it's the lyrics that need to move it.
You can rip a guitar solo proper - but it's your soul that needs to do it
You can have the chops and changes and all that good stuff down pat- but you gotta feel that shit and let your fans know it positively.
I am a huge fan of originality.

I basically want to hear innovation, kick ass songs (music + lyrics), and/or something that evokes a higher consciousness from the first song on. This can happen with covers too :)
