Alternative Rock rocks my boat. And folk too (YASS MICKEY). I'm the kinda listener who has an ear for everything.
But not Taylor's new song. Sadly, or maybe fortunately, I preferred her tunes around Fearless and Speak Now.
I have no idea if anybody listens to Japanese music here, but amazarashi has great music. Search the lyrics and maybe you'll relate too. I would recomment Touhikou (Escape from Society), Karappo no Sora ni Tsubusareru (The Empty Sky is Crushing Me), Kisetsu wa Tsugitsugi Shindeiku (The Season are Dying One after the Other) and Boku ga Shinou to Omottanowa (I thought of Death).
And for folk, seriously, I only see a few folks who know Birdy. If you've seen TFIOS, the song playing when Hazel gets in the car after she attended Gus' funeral is Not About Angels by Birdy. Also, Learn Me Right from Brave is by her as well. I'd suggest her songs from her latest album, Beautiful Lies, because she came to a decision on what her music will be. Good stuff, yo.
Now that i think about it, the only type of music that I don't have an ear for is trap music. Mmm. My thesis groupmates once told me about trying to listen to more trap music but I absolutely didn't find it pleasing at all. It just didn't match the songs I preferred.
