Trip Hop suggestions (16)

So, I've heard Massive Attack and Portishead and have been curious about other musicians of the trip-hop variety, but I'm not sure where to start looking. I like the kind with actual singing (usually from females) and a sort of... I dunno, dreamy feeling to it - like you could listen to the stuff while looking out the window of a car while in the passenger seat. Suggestions?

Believe it or not, I actually understood your analogy.

Some stuff by Tricky might fit the bill. Check out "Overcome" and "She makes me wanna die". There is other stuff with male vocals which might not be what you are looking for. "Tonite is a Special Nite" is funny, and dreamlike but in a much more trippy way. It lacks a lot of the melodic components in the other two tracks, however and I'm not sure it's what you are looking for.

It isn't triphop, but "Magenta" by Hooverphonic has a nice dreamy feel to it, that you might appreciate.

Ah, thanks a bunch. I've heard of Tricky, but haven't really heard their stuff.
... I remember liking the song "Six Underground" by Sneaker Pimps, but the rest of their music was grating on the ears after a couple plays. XP

check out the indie project "Chroma Key"

There isn't a lot of music that is like Massive Attack or Portishead and that is actually good. You probably need to broaden your expectations a little bit. Completely random suggestions for music you might also like are Hooverphonic (as mentioned already), Love Spirals Downwards, Broadcast, Baxter, Grand Tone Music, Ladytron... Some are similar, some aren't, all are very good, if you ask me. And you should of course check out Beth Gibbons' solo stuff, too.

Lamb is good. So is Sneaker Pimps.

Dj Krush counts as triphop now!?
Chroma Key fucking wins. Oh man, Hell Mary and Camera 4 are such My most recent discovery in this sector is Omfo ("Our Man From Odessa") - Trans Balkan Express (The title and the title track are both an allusion to Kraftwerk for fucking ever of course). It's very great. It's very Slavic. It wins.

thanks for the vanishing sentences. Bubu appreciates.

morcheeba is a must if you like this shit

that said, I'm very unclear on the definition of triphop.

Would 'Endtroducing' count as triphop?
How about the Unkle albums?
How about Wale Oyejides instrumentals?
How about some of the 'Cibo Matto' tracks? They use the same tempo, same drumsound, same general structure, only not all through some dark depressive filter.

This is why labelling music is silly and useless, especially the hyper-categorization that's infected the electronic music scene.

A few more suggestions:
Waldeck - Balance of the Force
Anubian Lights - Let Not The Flame Die Out
Anubian Lights - Naz Bar
Anubian Lights - The Eternal Sky
Bonobo - Dial M for Monkey
Baby Fox is the only outfit that has ever managed to remix an Amon Tobin song into something even better! I'm talking about "Cujo - Northstar: Baby Fox remix" of course.
Even Death In Vegas has some songs that fit the direction, e.g. "I Spy" from the Dead Elvis album.

>morcheeba is a must if you like this shit
>that said, I'm very unclear on the definition of triphop.

yes and yes. I was somewhat surprised to see Chroma Key in this thread, but then I suck at categories because I prefer relative association to categorization (to me Chroma Key sounds more like MaruMari or Fred Avril than like Morcheeba or XY)

I'd suggest
Sneaker Pimps - Wasted Early Sunday Morning
Zero 7 and Air come to mind too, but I cannot think of a particular song.
Olive - Miracle
Lunik - What You Are
Some people think Poe is trip-hop apparently

I'll second most of the other suggestions in this thread too

I recommend the Sneaker Pimps, and Bjork.

Heard a rumour a few weeks back that Portishead is working on a new album. It'd be nice to see what direction they'll take after a decade of nothing happening.

You might be interested in the duo known as "Boards of Canada."
