    The Confusing Music Genres

    When I read my newsletter about recent debuts, I was wonderinng about those genres of these new albums. There are some which I hardly recognized and many which I think are similiar to one another and this similiarity makes the differentiations insignificants:

    Check them out:
    Garage Rock Revival
    Modern Composition, Avant-Garde (???)
    Country-Rock, Southern Rock (???)
    Prog-Rock/Art Rock (???)
    Post-Romantic Orchestral Music (???)
    Sadcore (??? )
    Space Rock (??? )
    British Psychedelia, Psychedelic (???)
    Bubblegum (??? what the hell is this? )
    Neo-Traditionalist Country (???...Hello??? You gotta be kidding )
    Philly Soul (???)
    Smooth Soul (???)

    Anyone has any idea??? Or this is just another tricky idea of those industrialist people?

    there's a definite sound to Philly Soul. *grins broadly*
    actually, there's been a "Philly Sound" since like the 50's, with The Delfonics, The Stylistics, Billy Paul, and later Teddy Pendergrass and Boyz to Men; we also had Coltrane, and today have Patti LaBelle, The Roots, and Beanie Siegel just to name a few. this is a very urban city. we haven't the energy of new york, but just enough pain and loss and need and knowing what's right around the corner if your heart and voice are huge and in the right place - i think that's what's part of what gave birth to this city's sounds, and some of these voices that can move mountains. oh yeah, the late phyllis hyman lived here too.
    shh!!!
    the air and water have been here a long time, and they are telling stories.

    Post-Romantic Orchestral Music
    - We guess that it is practically romantism (you know what romantism is, We hope) but not from the romantic era, but from time after it. (i.e now) Also We guess that the musical texture is a bit more modern;(i.e a bit towards expressionism/impressionism or something like that)
    The Orchestral means that it is written for an (symphonic) orchestra.

    Modern Composition, Avant-Garde
    - You haven't heard of avangardism?

    I do, but what's the difference between Modern Composition with Avant garde? Is the later means to be more progressive?
