> Young Woodie Smalls (1996), aka Woods, started making music at the early age of 15. At first it wasn't something that he took real serious. Being in the studio was more about fun and hanging out with the homies. When his cousin Grey and childhood friend K1D started to give him props and asking for more verses things started to change. Woods became more focussed on producing quality content and started working towards his first official EP release. Read more on Last.fm.

This is inspired by the soundtrack of the Chinese TV series "The Longest Day in Chang'an", which is available on Amazon Prime Video.

Full original soundtrack is also on YouTube.

> Crywank are a three-piece DIY folk band from Manchester, England. They focus mostly on sad songs.
> Crywank started in 2009 with James Clayton attempting to do some folk-punk influenced acoustic music with no previous experience playing guitar. The first album "James is going to die soon" was inspired by a painful break up. James stated that "I wrote these songs out of frustration and sadness and they ended up making me feel a lot better, I hope they have a similar effect on you".
> In 2012 Crywank released his second album 'Narcissist On The Verge Of A Nervous Breakdown'. Described as "a collection of paranoid songs mostly about me trying to understand my own sadness along with the concept of sadness as a whole. It was fueled by self help books and pot."
> In late 2012 Dan Watson joined Crywank on percussion, and in early 2013 they released tour demos for their third album 'Tomorrow Is Nearly Yesterday And Everyday Is Stupid' which was released in October 2013.
> In 2014 Tom Connolly joined on bass, Crywank is now a full band. James continues solo recordings under the name JC and The Nobodies. The name Crywank comes from a nickname a friend gave James due to his over-the-top displays of sadness. His Mum tells her friends he's called 'Tearjerk'. Read more on Last.fm.

Austrian Death Machine
> Austrian Death Machine is a thrash metal/metalcore side project from San Diego, California. ADM is founded by As I Lay Dying vocalist Tim Lambesis as a parody band and as a tribute to the movies of actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Lambesis writes and records all the music playing guitar, bass, and drums as well as the majority of the vocals, leaving Destroy the Runner vocalist Chad Ackerman (portraying "Ahhhnold") to perform Schwarzenegger like vocals. The only thing Lambesis or Ackerman do not record are the guitar solos in every song which are performed by various guitarists from other bands. Lambesis stated where As I Lay Dying "is heartfelt and full of passion" Austrian Death Machine on the other hand "is an outlet of pure testosterone and stupidity."
> Austrian Death Machine released their first album "Total Brutal" on July 22, 2008. A few months later they released a Christmas theme EP titled "A Very Brutal Christmas". After some tour support of "Total Brutal, Lambesis went back on tour with As I Lay Dying. While on tour he posted on Austrian Death Machine's MySpace blog that he had ideas to follow up "Total Brutal" with a double disc effort titled "Double Brutal" stating that the first disc would be original songs where the second disc would be comprised of cover songs. After returning home from tour in early Summer 2009, he went straight to work on "Double Brutal" which was released September 29, 2009.
> Austrian Death Machine's third album, "Triple Brutal" is also released and is awesome! Read more on Last.fm.

Magic City Hippies
> The Magic City Hippies began as a one-man band playing for the co-ed party scene on the streets of Miami -- serenading the 20-somethings with a mix of old-school hip-hop covers and original tunes.
> After months of stealing electricity and stirring up crowds of passers-by with his loop-based setup, frontman Robby Hunter was asked by the Coconut Grove Police to cease and desist or 'play in a real bar.' Finding sanctuary in a nearby dive bar, Robby enlisted the support of multi-instrumentalists Pat Howard and John Coughlin for a regular gig.
> This trio dubbed itself Robby Hunter Band and released a self-produced, widely acclaimed debut LP in 2013 entitled Magic City Hippies, which included the beachy Hype Machine #1 Hit "Corazón" alongside major blog hits "Hard On Me" and "BUST” and album cuts that can be heard on episodes of major network shows like The CW’s “iZombie” and Showtime’s “Ray Donovan.”
> Encouraged by the international reach and positive reception of their debut, they decided to expand their sound and approach under the new moniker Magic City Hippies (after the title of their debut LP). In July of 2015, the Magic City Hippies released the Hippie Castle EP, and the lead-off track "Fanfare" hit #1 on Spotify's Global Viral Top 50 in the US, UK, and Canada. It has since accumulated over 1.9 million streams.

Pandora to gently introduce me to bands I don't know, who are similar to stuff I already like. (It has occasional streaks of surprising breadth, I've found.)

I've been seeing these guys for 10 years and they're still my favorite live show.
This is the show that I still give people to turn them on to Umphrey's, free on archive.org:
The songs on the album range around a bit in tone; "Barton Hollow" is probably the hardest-driving track. "Poison & Wine" is a good example of a track that goes in the other direction.
It's a great album, you should buy it immediately.

> Takeo Ishii (石井 健雄 Ishii Takeo, born May 3, 1947) is a Japanese yodeler active in Germany.
> Ishii was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan. At high school, he was a loner, but it was during this time that he first heard yodeling on the radio. Following his father, Ishii went to university for mechanical engineering. In his spare time he became engrossed with the zither and the hammered dulcimer, and learned to play these instruments. Using Franzl Lang's records, he taught himself to yodel, and began performing on Japanese television. During a six-month period where he studied abroad in Germany, Ishii went to Switzerland, where he sang at a beer hall in Zurich. He soon started earning money from this. From there he sang in front of Lang, his idol, and Lang took him under his wing. He performed on television with Maria Hellwig, and after that became known in German language circles as the "Japanese yodeler". Read more on Last.fm.

She who walks alone in life
She of sound mind
I am only as old as I've been told
Now I'm playing for time
Darling take me to the lakeside
Wash my body well
I am holy now the water's hit me
Broken from your spell
Cause I was on my hands and knees
Bending at the heart of me
We don't know the weight of all
The words we say now
In a few more years, with open ears
Would you still say them aloud?
They who walk alone in life
They are of sound mind
We can only get hurt by things we've heard
And lovers are unkind
But did you hear the sun go down?
Silent as a child I found
Hiding in the midnight of my soul
I am ready now to let her go
She who walks alone in life
She by herself
We are only as old as we've been told
And I'm not ready for the shelf
Darling take me to the lakeside
Lay my body down
I am holy now while skin is touching
Let the sun go out
I am on my hands and knees
Bending at the heart of me
Hiding in the midnight of my soul
Please don't break the shell that I call home

> Ivan Ave’s relationship with music started in the CD shelves of his older sisters. Today the Norwegian MC makes songs clearly shaped by sneaking into 90s bedrooms to play albums by The Fugees and Janet Jackson. In the last few years he has put out several EPs, all deeply rooted in the RnB and Hip-Hop of his childhood, perhaps even more the 70s jazz and soul that inspired it. A keen record collector, Ave moonlights as a DJ and two step extraordinaire.
Ivan signed with Berlin based Jakarta Records in 2014 to release Low Jams, a five track phenomenon produced by Stones Throw artist Mndsgn. The EP was described by Okayplayer.com as “an enveloping head nodder that peppers irresistible grooves with vivid double-entendres and exists in the same elusive strata of true school perfection occupied by Nas’ debut Illmatic LP.” In the fall of 2015 Ivan and long time collaborator Fredfades released another duo project on Jakarta, entitled Fruitful LP. In february 2016 Ivan’s debut solo LP, produced exclusively by Mndsgn was released. You can find his vivid raps on several features and side projects. From the soulful cassette release with his crew Mutual Intentions, to trading verses with the likes of Blu and Illa J, Ivan Ave is a force to be reckoned with. Read more on Last.fm.

Larry and His Flask
> "Larry & His Flask are like no band I’ve ever seen (which seems to be the general consensus). As soon as Jamin says “Hello everybody we’re Larry & His Flask!” and the first song begins people are glued to the stage. Everyone is watching with smiles and wide eyes. People are looking at their friends shaking their heads with looks on their faces that say: “What the hell is this?!“ When all 6 members are on stage they are truly a sight to behold. They play their instruments fast and they play them good. It’s difficult to describe the kind of music they play; they don’t fit into any of the genres found in your neighborhood music shop. Their music sounds like rowdy bluegrass/folk with heavy punk rock roots and a splash of gypsy soul."

Founded by twins Rich and Ryan Meyer, and their best friend Johnny Stevens in 2009, this literal band of brothers have gone from playing cover sets on the shores of Cape Cod, to playing original material at countless venues and dive bars in New York City. They now live in Brooklyn, and after recording a 3 song EP The Worst Humans with producer Joel Hamilton (Elvis Costello, Plastic Ono Band, Black Keys/Wu-Tang Clan), are working on a new album. Their current sound has been to compared to Band of Skulls, Pink Floyd, and early Kings of Leon. In their single “Bath Salts”, The twins play off their primal connection to hold down a rocking, tension filled rhythm section, while lead singer Johnny’s dirty, lo-fi vocals play into the songs’ themes of recklessness and wasted youth. “We have been rogue, nomadic, bohemian, and poor for years now, but we stay together because this life and this music is what we love” says Johnny.

Binaural literally just means involving or using both ears.
"Binaural beats" are like you said, but as I understand the situation, their effects were overblown and their known uses are very narrow. Here's an old comment/study on the subject.
Another "binaural" thing is recording audio using two microphones placed similarly to ears on a head, allowing for a very, very realistic sounding stereo effect.
But, yeah, you're totally right about what's going on in the song.
Here's the mix of Middle Eastern & Maghreb Disco Funk from the Golden Era (1975-1985) which includes this track.

> Harley Poe is an acoustic horror folk rock band with punk influences. They are similar in style to Violent Femmes. Their lyrics however, are extremely dark, with many references to horror movie subculture.
> All of Harley Poe's initial members came from the now defunct Christian band Calibretto 13. Upon disbanding in late 2004, Joseph Whiteford (vocals and guitar), Chad Serhal (bass), and Christopher Thomas (drums) went on to record an album under the name Harley Poe. "In the Dark", which had originally been planned as a new Calibretto 13 album, was released in November of that year. Whiteford tours and records with a new band now; Serhal and Thomas are now involved in their own bands.
> "The Dead and the Naked" was released in August 2006 and includes some new material in addition to live versions of songs from the previous album.
> In 2015, Joe Whiteford announced on his blog that Harley Poe would be going on "indefinite hiatus," citing a need to "give this demon some time off." Whiteford marked the hiatus of Harley Poe by releasing the album "Fallen Down," a collection of recordings done almost entirely on Whiteford's phone.
> In January 2016, however, Whiteford announced that he had reformed the band and was working on recording yet another album. "I'm thinking that music is a part of me," Whiteford wrote on his personal Facebook page, "It flows. I can't stop it. When something is on my mind, I write about it (...) It's a gift."

Hawaii Part II, the album the track is from, is Joe Hawley (red tie)'s pseudonymous project!
All the songs are written at least in part by him, and a lot of them are based off of old Tally Hall-era demos that never made it onto the band's studio albums. It was all co-produced by Joe, Ross Federman (gray tie) and Bora Karaca (orange tie), and features Rob Cantor (yellow tie) and Zubin Sedghi (blue tie) on vocals for a few tracks as well.
It's really really really good stuff; I highly recommend buying it on iTunes or on the Sellfy site and listening to it all the way through :D

Well, I disagree on one point, since I usually listen to the songs from this subreddit using Tidal. The coverage on small bands is quite good. It is true that the editorial line points towards pop and other horrible stuff, but a good listener knows to skip entirely the suggested options and the main page.
If someone of your mods has the Tidal account it would be super easy to sync spotify playlists using Soundiiz.
I would do it myself, but this service allows only to sync created content, not subscribed playlists, so to sync you must own the source account and have the playlist created by you.
Also if a song is not listed in the destination's portfolio it will be simply skipped, so no need to edit anything.
Anyway, thanks for the answer.
Keep going with your great job.

> Sarah Jarosz (born 23 May 1991 in Austin, Texas) is an American alt-country musician and singer-songwriter from Texas. Her first CD, Song Up in Her Head, was released in 2009, with her tune "Mansinneedof" nominated for a Grammy Award in the category of Best Country Instrumental Performance. Her second album, Follow Me Down, was released in 2011. Her third album, Build Me Up from Bones, was released on September 24, 2013 through Sugar Hill Records.
> Jarosz emerged on the scene in about 2003 as someone to watch. Jamming on stage with bluegrass icons named Grisman or Skaggs, she played her mandolin with a sure touch and real joy. It looked and sounded comfortable in her twelve-year-old hands. She started writing songs on the guitar, took up the banjo, and won a bunch of awards. While her instrumental talents are formidable, let's make one thing clear: Sarah is a singer. She's just flat got it. Her voice is velvety smooth, agile, and powerful. With subtle use of colors and effects, she inhabits her songs the way a fine actress does her role. Overall, her music feels good, avoids over reaching. Nothing's contrived.
> Her schoolteacher parents have raised her well, providing the skills, support, and freedom to become the confident artist that she is. Beautiful, talented, and just a little mysterious in a wholesome, Wimberley Texas hill-country kinda way, Jarosz is at home in this world. She knows what she's about and is ready to get out there and make her mark. Read more on Last.fm.

This list looks kinda promising but some of the best artists aren't releasing albums, they are releasing soundboards of their sets. Lotus released an album that I wouldn't even put on here, but they are still killing it at venues

> The second release, 'Dear Monsters, Be Patient' was released for free in 2008 before their first tour. Although they encourage people to buy it, they do not seem to mind free downloading. This was a change in style from TECWS, and has mostly been positively received.

The music has been called folk, nature-pop and baroque pop.

> As well as being classed as a "punk revival" band (reminiscent of UK 1970s bands such as Stiff Little Fingers, The Damned, Sham 69 and Eddie & the Hot Rods), Swingin' Utters have increasingly shown themselves to be influenced by Irish folk, particularly The Pogues. The Utters paid homage to their influences with a stellar cover of Cocksparrer's I Got Your Number on the Blackout compilation Punk Rock Jukebox.
> Members of the Swingin' Utters have been involved in many musical side-projects, most notably Johnny Bonnel and Darius Koski's Filthy Thieving Bastards and Druglords of the Avenue (formed in Oakland, California in 2004), and Spike Slawson's Me First and the Gimme Gimmes (in which he is the singer). Drummer Greg McIntee's side project Viva Hate was founded with Tiger Army bassist Geoff Kresge and singer Matt Wedgley of The Force. Guitarist Jack Dalrymple formed and fronted the Fat Wreck band Dead to Me after One Man Army disbanded. Dalrymple, Slawson and Koski also play together in the Re-Volts.

The band really came into its own, though, in late 2010, with the addition of Chris Michael (also in BOOM!) on drums. Technically they joined the Dirtnap roster in June 2011, but they took their time recording their debut for the label, done mostly at home by the band themselves.
Chest Crawl sees the band working more vocal numbers into the mix, incorporating the usual surf/garage suspects (Cramps, Trashmen), more obscure 50's rock 'n' roll/RNB wildmen, as well as slightly heavier nods toward the young-oldies sound being popularized today by bands such as Hunx, Shannon And The Clams, Nobunny, etc.
