I think it is an acquired taste to enjoy music with foreign lyrics. As long as the song sounds great / epic, that's good enough, imo. I understand that not everyone easily enjoys music without understanding lyrics. To each, their own.

It's funny- sometimes I like artists MORE when I can't understand their lyrics compared to their songs in english. Probably a combination of not realizing how uninteresting their non-english lyrics are, plus crossover songs are likely to be even more pop than their earlier non-english stuff.

I tend towards the Techno/EBM

Funker Vogt - Tanzbefehl

T.O.Y. - The Darkness and the Light

The Anix - Again

Deadlife - Deviant

And when I want something harder,

Velvet Acid Christ - Caustic Disco

Not sure it counts as new but here's the Asterix remix of Pistolero:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=40H76sNkGYs

The original is Juno Reactor. They are good. Super weird, but good.

This is very... wat-esque. I don't like it, but I like it, if you know what I mean.

Sometimes. But there are a few artists whose lyrics are top notch,
too. Rolling Stones, Leonard Cohen, etc.

Zelda: A Link to the Past - Dark World Theme Orchestrated

Fits the atmosphere of PCB gameplay and all Angband variants all across

TwoCello's cover of Thunderstruck demonstrates just how interesting a tune it really is--not to mention making an utterly hilarious music video.

Is that really about how recent it is? Metal has always been a pretty wide variety of styles. I mean compare:

Naiad - Acrophobe
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftsg0Sr-uDs

to

A Perfect Circle - 3 Libras
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9MAg9E5K3w

& also

A Perfect Circle - Pet
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LC_QOoQ_Op4
just because I like the song

+2 for Leonard Cohen. Never understood why he wasn't more popular. Master lyricist.

Anyone else have new favorites?
Is Matthew Perryman Jones alt country? I discovered him on the trailer for Manchester by the Sea. Very good movie and song.

I really like the score for Stranger Things. Some recent discoveries:

Donnis Trio. Josh Ritter: I really like the songs Thin Blue Flame and Change of Time
Revisited and rediscovered Young Galaxy.

You might like Ola Podrida; the songs: Run off the road and Lost and Found

Does Cracker count as Alt Country?

The roots stuff like Gillian Welch and Steve Earle, also Alison Krause/Robert Plant Raising Sand are some of my favorites. When I lived near Monterey I'd listen to a radio station called KPIG that played only this stuff.
