Is it intentional that Southpaws and Sargasso have the same RIYL? Mistake?

ugh, I hate how people just throw out the tag "experimental" for no good reason. just because a band 'experiments' with traditional song structures, chords, etc. doesn't mean it's experimental at all. modern math rock and prog rock bands are no where near what should be considered experimental.

Hey guys -- it's Andrew (the guy who made Laptop Rap 3, posted above). I'm giving away at least 5 USBs to anyone from AbsolutePunk who wants them. Just message me your three favorite songs and a preferred shipping address and I'll get it out to you ASAP. My album has a variety of samples and I encourage you to check out tracks 10-15: a continuous mix of raps sampling Big Star, DJ Koze, Salem, Deadmau5, Sasha, Engineers and The Youngsters. The USB includes a 16 page booklet, an exclusive deluxe edition of the album and various other goodies. Happy listening and a big thanks to AbsolutePunk for featuring my music!

Thank you. I like Sargasso well enough but that doesn't make them innovative enough to add the experimental tag. It always bugs me to see that happen ESPECIALLY when it's freaking generic dubstep or trip hop.

Maybe you could give me some recommendations since we are of like mind on this topic?

honestly I'm very behind when it comes to modern music. I'm mostly concerning myself with 70s rock, soul and 80s post punk these days. I go here on this side of ap.net to try to snag up anything that catches my eye.

I do have a few in mind but I'll have to post them when I'm not on the phone.

We need more contributors, and you have good taste.

That said, I liked Combat Astronomy and bansheebeat.
