    This pertains to two or your choices but both Eveline Fischer and David Wise were composers in the 90s who creatively mixed influences from the soundscapes of both ambient, drum and bass/jungle and breakbeat. So this might be what you are looking for.

    As for 'screamo', as much as I hate the term, I do adore a good grasp of bands there. Funeral Diner, Raein, Majority Rule, Amanda Woodward, La Quiete, etc.

    Power Pop? Jellyfish, Baby Shakes, Brendan Benson, Candy Butchers, Invasionen, Jason Falkner, Jordan Zevon, The Lemonheads are all good starting points.

    As for soul, Well that's a easy one. Everyfrickin'artistever.

    :p

    when i had to do my poetry reading of "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" last semester, i literally scared some of the girls in the room
    Love that poem. Shame that I can't take Dylan Thomas seriously after hearing his accent though.

    Thank you.

    Anyone have any recommendations for the following...


    - Surf
    - Hardcore Punk
    - Power Pop
    Surf:
    Bow Wow Wow (Their albums were notoriously inconsistent, so I'd recommend looking into a greatest hits record like The Best of Bow Wow Wow instead; some of my favorite songs are Do You Wanna Hold Me, C30 C60 C90 Go, Go Wild In The Country, etc.)
    Jan & Dean (Also recommend picking up a greatest hits album for J&D, too)
    The Surfaris (Greatest hits records seem to be the order of the day here...)
    The Ventures (Probably check out The Very Best of The Ventures)
    Laika & The Cosmonauts (Definately see if you can find a copy of this: http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:dpfoxzqkld6e)

    Hardcore Punk:
    Black Flag (Damaged is probably their most consistent release, but My War and Slip It In have some standouts; Wasted...Again is a great primer to get into the band, too)
    Fear (The Record)
    Hüsker Dü (Warehouse: Songs and Stories and Zen Arcade are essentials)
    Plasmatics (Maybe closer to metal than hardcore, but still, I recommend looking into any of their compilation albums or Beyond The Valley of 1984; most of their albums are /very/ inconsistent, though)
    Flipper (Sex Bomb Baby! is the only album of theirs that I own, but it's definately worth acquiring if you like Big Black, The Melvins and Sonic Youth's early material; they straddle the line between noise rock, hardcore, and punk)

    Power-pop:
    Cheap Trick (At Budokan and their self-titled debut album)
    The Rezillos (Probably closer to pop-punk, but Can't Stand The Rezillos is one of my all-time favorite records)
    Matthew Sweet (The Girlfriend album is all I'm familiar with, but it's definately worth it)
    The Smithereens (I see The Smithereens as a "singles band", so a compilation record like Blown to Smithereens will probably be the best way to get into them)

    I hope this helps.

    The Descendents, Milo Goes to College is an essential album whether or not you're getting into hardcore punk.

    Acoustic EP's make me jizz in my pants. Also, Jizz In My Pants is a great song.
