umm can u clarify wot u mean by instrumental cuz it seems a very very broad term to me? :P cuz jazz fusion is wot id recommend...japanese ones like casiopea and t-square are instrumental jazz fusion bands who play with a disco and pop sentiment.

classic video games usually have live instrumental arranged albums which are gr8 also (snes, sega, nintendo, psx) castlevania, final fantasy etc.. :xd:

I was listening to Into the Sea as I read the posts lmao.
I take it a-guins more into the synth instrumental, good stuff.
A friend and I got our mini korgs together with his motif and in a day made some fun synth music, its a blast!

And yea, instrumental is a pretty broad definition huh xD.
I'll listen to any kind really tho, especially if it's good chill music.

I'll be sure to check some of that stuff out =D!

Hook it up with some of ur music a-guin!

lullatone is mostly instrumental... not much of their music has vocals. except for The Bedtime Beat album.

they're pretty awesome.

my mom has these instrumental CDs, I liked some of them, Natural Jazz and... one other one

I wanna borrow them again, I need to ask her about that tomorrow...

I just like that kinda stuff for sleeping mostly... I also listen to a lot of video game music, so yeah.

I take "instumental" to mean any music w/o vocals. I don't think you meant piano music or anything right?

I recently discovered this, really awesome

yea, i've listened to Andy and he's pretty darn great alright.

this guy (John Konesky) is also the electric guitar player for Tenacious D and he rocks in a few other bands too. he's a shred-master... and a really nice guy. he's got an album up on itunes too, if anyone felt so inclined to DL a copy. :)

I know this is the Non-Asian music thread, but when there is a discussion about instrumental music, Toe must be mentioned





Fun Fact: The drummer is the drummer (maybe only for touring purposes?) for Kimura Kaela. So in my fan boy fantasies, Kimura Kaela would introduce Toe to Perfume and they would collaborate one day.

But yeah, This Will Destroy You are pretty good as far as American bands go. I used to like Explosions in the Sky, but I got over them really quick. They put on a pretty decent live show, but their records just drag for me. Bands like Toe I prefer because they keep it short and sweet. If there are any instrumental bands similar to them, then by all means, please mention them to me :D

I like video game music, if that counts. Final Fantasy 10 is my favorite (my favorite game as well, but that's another story), and I like the Resident Evil tunes. It's really all over the place. NES, SNES, Sega, PSX, etc.

If we're talking bands that play instrumental music, I like the 80's duo "DADA," who was Mutsuhiko Izumi and Kenji Konishi.

Wow, "instrumental music" is a really broad term...but, yeah, I'm into pretty much all music that isn't country, really. I went to school for music, so I definitely listen to a lot of instrumental music, as well as composing my own stuff, which is actually what I listen to most.

i wouldnt really call it intrsumental, but Jazz-pop/hop. VERY soothing to listen to and really good if you just want to relax.

I know a REALLY good ambient/relaxation/peaceful instrumental duo called 2002. They're genre is apparently called "new age" and they have very beautiful songs. I REALLY recommend them, especially for people who like relaxing music with maybe an ethereal and natural vibe to it. I personally only know one album from them but recently I am finding more and more of their music.

For starters I'd recommend listening to "Across an Ocean of Dreams" first, purely because that was the first album I heard from them. I actually heard it years ago, when I was only about 11 or 12, and it's stuck through with me all this time. ^_^ Link to the last.fm page: http://www.last.fm/music/2002/Across+an+Ocean+of+Dreams

Would you put Andrew Bird under this? He has some really interesting patterns in his music and tends to use a variety of instruments for each one.

Not exactly new, and actually, I'd like to hear "Oh, not Antoine Dufour again, please!". He deserves more recognition.
