IIL Khruangbin and Los Destellos, what should I listen to?

Okay I know that these two bands play different genres, but there’s something very similar that entrances me. Both are GREAT for dancing with minimal vocals but also feel very psychedelic. I would love genre or artist recommendations! I’ll also include songs from Kruangbin and Los Destellos.

[IIL] Youtube channels like Quinn's ideas

I'm looking for some youtube creators in a similar vein to the like of Quinn's ideas or Alt Shift X.

What I mean by that is creators who talk about lore from book series preferably Sci-Fi but I'm fine with fantasty stuff too(just no asoiaf creators). If their videos are on the longer side that would be even better but I'll take what I can get.

Thanks in advance

[IIL] Weird and cooky but fast and upbeat songs

I am currently making a physics video game and am looking for music for the trailer. The game is a fun physics similar to the Goat Sim franchise so I want to match the feel of the songs they use in there trailers. For example, Mumbo Jumbo by Paul Paljiett is an example of the kind of song I am looking for. Fast, upbeat, weird, and fun.

[IIL] Songs like "That Girl" by Jennifer Nettles

So I have recently come to absolutely adore "That Girl" by Jennifer Nettles- not even for the music or beat itself, but the lyrics and story. For those of you not in the know it's sort of a sequel to Dolly Parton's "Jolene"- from Jolene's perspective, explaining that she isn't exactly the man-snatching seductress she's seen as.
So to clarify: I'm not looking for soundalikes (although that could be a plus!) I'm looking for songs which convey a similar 'story', regardless of genre.

[IIL] Creative dystopian premises, like The Hunger Games and Unwind

Title says it all. I love dystopian stories, and I especially love ones that are waaay far out there, like the series mentioned in the title (kids being sent to die in an arena and kids being "unwound" as an alternative to abortion). WEWIL?

[IIL] Pedro Paramo, The Posthumous Memoirs of Brás Cubas and the works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Basically I'm looking for more South American books, and or magical realism. I've read most of Marquez but I'm looking for some more deep cuts or hidden gems, especially those written or set before the 21th century.

iil „Waking Up“ by Felix Jaehn - what similar modern disco house could I like?

I really dig the 80s vibe in the song but I can’t seem to find similar modern (I.e. not from the 80s) house tracks…

IYL Plantasia by Mort Garson, have a listen to Raymond Scott

Specifically his ‘Soothing Sounds For Baby’ album series. A perfect accompaniment to Plantasia. Couldn’t believe these albums were made in the 60’s and made for babies. The guy was so ahead of his time.

[IIL] Bravely Default 2, Fire Emblem Engage, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 [WEWIL]

I played Bravely Default 2 a while ago and its been stuck in my mind. I really wanna play another RPG like it. I also played some other RPG's like Fire Emblem Engage and Xenoblade 2 along with some others and I really liked them. Nothing has really scratched the itch that bravely Default 2 left though. I am lucky that I have basically every console but I don't have a lot of money. What do you guys think I should get into?

[IIL] Classic Rock and Metal, but it could be in Spanish…

Hello! I like rock and metal songs but I’ve only really heard them in English. I’m bilingual and speak Spanish because many of my family members never learned English. Are there any good rock or metal songs in spanish?
