What is some music like Neil Young?

Sat Aug 24, 2019 8:28 pm

Anyone know of any music that is sort of similar to Neil Young with kinda grimey folky country-ish sounds?
I can't really think of any that really sound like that.

Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young?

I have one thing that is not even close to Young’s voice. Olin recommended this to me a while back and I absolutely adore it.
Way more lo-fi... I prefer this sort of singing too https://atticabasement.bandcamp.com/alb ... -hate-fuck

My favorite Neil Young record is sort of an obscure bootleg (it was released, I don’t remember the name. I had it on my OG iPod back in high school). Same with Bob Dylan... my favorite Dylan records are all on the Bootleg Series.

EDIT: Townes Van Zandt is a different beast but may also be up your alley if you aren’t already into his work.

Jason Molina's stuff?

I drunkenly heckled one time him about how much he loved Neil Young. Miss that guy.

I'm a big fan of the ANGELS OF LIGHT project myself.

I wouldn't call this "like Neil Young", but I like it a lot!

Haven't listened to Neil Young in a while (and don't really know what out of his discography you're referring to) but remember thinking this had some Neil Young-ish sounds to it when it came out.

You have to remove the 's' and use a non-shortened URL (i.e. not youtu.be)

Actually, when these guys first hit they got a lot of Neil Young comparisons:

(They quickly moved on to a cleaner/poppier/more "Big Star" sound though.)

(Also, Dinosaur Jr. got a lot of Neil Young comparisons too. Teenage Fanclub also got a lot of Dinosaur Jr. comparisons as well.)
