LULZ / Music

NEED more music like The Smiths

i know this is a faggy ask but i've just never been able to find a band that scratches the same itch as them. the fagyearning, the catchiest guitar ive ever heard, it just speaks to me on a level i can't express.

i know this is normie shit but i just need more music like this because ive listened to them way too much, would appreciate less british shit ty for any recommendations

      don tfeel ashamed for liking the smiths, they are one of the best bands out there.

      the fact that they are accessible or "normie" means that they are great while remaining easy to recommend.

      good as band, and as other have said R.E.M is very similar in some regards, and if youre looking for other "faggy" music then bowie and the cure have that feel aswell

      McCarthy. very to the left,sound similar.

      Probably Belle and Sebastian would be up your ally idk

      Whoever here said Red House Painters is just Smiths slowed down made the most accurate take I've seen on the board

      sounds nothing like smiffs

        what the fuck do you want? there's a reason they're still listened to today, there's nothing exactly like them

          no, but you can find bands that are very similar.

          The Silver garden gnomes and you know Berman is about that life because he literally killed himself 2 years ago

          sounds nuffing like the smiffs

          There's nothing matching the lyricism AND the jangly riffs. If you want riffs, go listen to some of the jangle pop/new wave that preceded The Smiths and some of the stuff that came after.

          >Felt
          >Orange Juice
          >The Sundays

          hey retard, i already posted all of those bands

    if you don't mind noise: The Wedding Present. less skilled at their instrument and the vocalist can't sing, but they have the jangle and the self-depreciating lyrics down to a t.
    if you don't mind going back in time, The Modern Lovers. very different musically, but Richman's lyrics are proto-Morrissey.
    if you don't mind wimpiness, Belle and Sebastian. more folky and introspective, but i like them.

      first time ive ever heard LULZ mention this guy since 2007
      i fucking love this guy's music.

      >JANGLING MAN!!

      side note, does this dude's career prove that sticking to your guns and not selling out is really fucking stupid?
      Serious question.

          but how can you live comfy if your not making any money from the thing that you spend the majority of your time on?
          Serious question.
          Like is Martin's family rich or something?
          I know he's had the same london apartment for like 30 years. Is it rent control? Do you clotted cream n-words have that?

            I really know nothing about his finances so I wouldn't venture to comment. But being a working touring musician has been viable for a lot of people who have like no fame at all so I don't see why he couldn't get by if he was like playing pubs and bars and shit

              thats kinda my point he doesnt play live hardly ever and of coarse his publishing royalties are nothing because he's never had a radio hit so wtf?

    Morrissey's solo work, especially from 1988-1990 is the closest you'll find. You'll also probably like these if you're a fan of The Smiths.

      They're probably all in my top 10. I knew my taste was a bit on the "sensitive" side but I didn't realize it was THAT gay what the fug.

    It won't scratch the itch for the great guitar, but Xiu Xiu's album Knife Play hits the grandiose self-pity vibe pretty well.

    You might like The Organ OP, vocalist is basically ripping morissey, while the instrumentalist are ripping off bands the likes of The Cure. Just skim through their album and see that sounds good.

    I was listening to Jeff Buckley a lot, he always mentions the smiths, started listening to the smiths, and couldn’t stop.
    I grew out of the smiths by listening to Jeff Buckley, Tim Buckley, and bands that influenced Morrissey like the New York Dolls, The Velvet Underground, T.Rex, and David Bowie.

    Don’t listen to morrissey as much anymore.

      Also for some reason the only band that reminds me of The Smiths, though they are very different are the Talking Heads

    The Farmer's Boys were like The Smiths with synths and drum machines. And they were first. John Peel liked them but they never got successful.

      Honestly this. It's one of the closest things we have to the Smiths, but being too similar to then can be a liability indeed.
