Alternate Bands

There has to be alist of bands and groups that are not rock, rap, indie, or have been suckered into staying with one record label for more than one album in a row. Name them, unless all that the forums really like are rock/rap/indie/sucker bands.

Joey Stuckey. He's rock, but different than most others. And he produces himself, not belonging to any label, large or small.

But wouldn't that make him indie-pendent?

Well, he has his own publishing company (and his own recording studio), independent of any major label. And if he produced/published anyone else's work, then I'd consider it an "indie label". But as far as I know, he only does his own stuff through his "label". So it's even "more indie than indie", I guess you'd say.

I've commented about them several times, Medeski Martin and Wood . They're jazz, but very different. They have a twist of rock and funk mixed in, and occasionally go into fusion and experimental music.

What's wrong with having several releases on the same label?

Your average generic labels (such as Kompakt or Bunker) act as magnets for like-minded artists, they get the chance to collaborate and create all manner of sub-genres.

It can only be good?

Well, if they attract like-minded artists, and they stick to those labels, then their work is going to be boring and unchanging ====> Rap

Nobody sticks to one label, what you have is a 'network' of independent labels, each with a different culture. Artists tend to move around, but will probably use the same label more than once.

If you research the artist "Legowelt", you'll encounter the following labels:

Bunker, Eat This Records, Cocoon Recordings, Kapellmeister Grammafon, Stilleben Records, Creme Organisation, Strange Life Records.

One of many thriving music communities - artists come and go, interchange, drive it on...

Then you have your experimental labels...

'Vynalogica'
Profile: The Centre for Electronic Music (CEM) in Amsterdam has started this new label. The label is devoted to a unique project: what would happen when you take modern dance music artists and lock them up in an antique electronical 40 years old music studio, complete with analogue synths and stone-age beat boxes? CEM invites some artists to record the material for a vinyl EP in their analogue studio, which is then released on Vynalogica. Later, Vynalogica will release a compilation cd of all the contributions to the project.

Not exactly run-of-the-mill...

Well, switching labels and thus environments encourages diversity of styles.
