Every year one genre seems to take the charts.

This year?

I'm hoping it'll be not one specific genre but a further diversification of styles and fusions.

Seeing radically different kinds of music topping the charts from week to week. One theme that will probably dominate across all genres like it has in the past though.

On that front I think music is going to be invigorated anything electronic or sample based with the minimum number of members and gear to make touring cheap. Most labels love it as it is good money, and I don't see a return to big bands, buses and lots of gear any time soon.

Personally, I'm hoping Riot Grrrl will make a comeback.


Here are some of the genres that I have been listening to in 2017: indie rock, indietronica, alternative rock, neo-psychedelic, and dream pop.

As you can see, a real mix.

Some of the artitist that I am enjoying right now are:

  1. David Bowie
  2. Bonobo
  3. The xx
  4. Brian Eno
  5. The Shins

You have probably heard of all of those. Ok, David Bowie, probably not.

Here are a couple that you might not know about:

  1. Navarone
  2. Knight Area
  3. Mercy John
  4. Ray Davies
  5. Piano Magic

If you like those you will also enjoy the following artists as well:

  • Moke
  • Audio Adam
  • Ayreon
  • Peter Gabriel
  • Steve Gunn
  • De Staat
  • Smith Westerns
  • All Missing Pieces
  • Allah-Las
  • Arjen Anthony Lucassen
