music recommendations

music i recommended is not from a pop/rock music collection. i dont like guitar or singing so much, and tend towards unusual rhythms/textures and synthesizer sounds. currently there are about 10000 albums in my collection. it took decades to find music i like but not unlikely with new findings, i find it had been around for decades before and i just didnt know of it. with the millions of albums of today and artist names attached to albums of usually highly varying quality, buying music is a lottery - a very expensive one (for example, 10000 albums a 10$ require 100000$). i have felt ripped off many times because one can rarely judge an album adequately before having listened to it fully in a high quality format in the right mood. add to that, many labels and artists, particularly those that produce experimental music, artificially limit the number of available copies to small numbers, which makes it harder to find unusual music. music is also often only available on plastic discs or temporarily with streaming (sometimes exclusively, always in sub-par quality) and drm protected files, instead of straight and easy to handle digital files, if available anywhere at all - often things just are not available. i hope this list helps someone to save time finding unusual music and make better buying decisions
