    its unconventional use of timing and irregular beats The mostly instrumental music genre is characterized by erratic rhythms and unusual time signatures The limited lyrics disjointed rhythms and constantly changing tempos make this tranquil music style stand out among the rock genres A close cousin to progressive rock math rock is also often known for its above average song lengths and pull away from the pop song structure Notable math rock bands include American Football Don Caballero and Slint 5 Dark Cabaret When it comes to Dark Cabaret just imagine the Phantom of the Opera was serenading Christine with an electric guitar instead of an organ The dramatic rock genre is very theatrical in nature It s musical theater with an edge It features the passionate vocals of a typical cabaret performance but with a gothic twist Acts often feature musicians dressed in classic goth clothing and dramatic makeup The music brings up a romantic picture of shady night clubs femme fatales and circus freaks Notable acts in the Dark Cabaret genre include the Dresden Dolls Vermillion Lillies and Johnny Hollow 6 J Punk The US has a pretty strong fan base devoted to J Pop and K Pop Other than Psy s Oppa Gangam Style though Western culture pays little attention to Asian produced music Perhaps surprising to some but Asian music does in fact go beyond synth and Psy Just because you don t speak the language doesn t mean you can t enjoy the music The J Punk scene consists of everything from grungy 80s punk bands like The Stalin to modern more polished acts like the pop punk Dustbox 7 Unblack Metal What is Unblack Metal you ask It is exactly what the name implies Unblack metal is the opposite of black metal but only in message not in style Where black metal screams out themes of satanism and the supernatural unblack metal counters those with Christian messages of hope and faith Unblack Metal alternatively Christian black metal seeks to break misconception that metal and faith can t mix While they do experience criticism from both the Black Metal scene for not truly being metal and from the religious scene for not truly making Christian music unblack metal bands like Horde and Antestor continue to create music to express their religious faith through their Black Metal Style 8 Wizard Rock Number eight and my personal favorite on this list is Wizard Rock Harry Potter changed more than just the literary world JK Rowling s story has inspired movies theme parks plays immeasurable amounts of fan fiction music and even musicals Wizard Rock aka Wrock is a sub genre of the nerd rock world Rowling s fans have joined together to create a whole sub genre of the music world dedicated entirely to the world of Harry Potter Geeks all over the world have joined together to lament Snape s love for Lily express their house pride and recount tales of Harry s heroism in song With millions of YouTube hits Harry and the Potters Ministry of Magic Gred and Forge and Remus and the Lupins are just a few of the Wrock bands to rise to relative fame Thanks for checking out this list of weird rock genres I hope you enjoyed the music and maybe found a new favorite rock genre Here s a few honorable mentions that also have unique and interesting styles Cowpunk Medieval Metal Time Lord Rock Afro Punk Queercore Stoner Doom Click here for a comprehensive list of the hundreds of rock genres that apparently exist KCR Blog KCR Music dark cabaret math rock nintendocore pirate metal rock genres Rock Music unblack metal wizard rock Neighborhood Jams The Aura Øvation October 14 2015 Brianna Avalos Hello friends This week on Neighborhood Jams I am featuring the San Diegan band The Aura Øvation I highly highly recommend listening to these guys each musician adds so much emotion with their preferred instrument This past January they released the album Brilliant Nights EP and you can purchase it on iTunes On their website you can listen to their entire acoustic EP read up on each member s background and check out a quick summary on each song from their acoustic EP It s absolutely great to read about the band s feelings and thoughts on their own songs it makes the connection between the musician and listener stronger I loved it If Dashboard Confessional were to do a collaboration with Kings of Leon we would get the guys from The Aura Øvation They would be considered alternative rock Lead singer and guitarist Mike Strong combined his instrumental skills along with his passion for poetry and in the first song from their acoustic EP titled Vines and Mini Blinds Strong s emotions and honesty shines through You can feel the rawness in each chorus and I believe it is truly beautiful Alongside Strong is Jesse Richardson on guitar and bassist Paul Philips each bringing a key ingredient to the heart wrenching songs Lastly Chris Thiel is strumming away and keeping rhythm on drums Thiel is three time San Diego Guitar Center Drum Off Champion and his skills and techniques really round out The Aura Øvation I also really loved the songs House on Fire and On These Brilliant Nights both featured on their album Brilliant Nights EP Each song sounds full powerful and make me want to close my eyes and do a slow head bang The guys have played at several local venues including The Tin Roof and Point Loma Nazarene University I wish they could play at SDSU It s so great to find local bands filled with so much passion in their first albums Great job guys great job Check out The Aura Øvation on October 24 at PLNU s Fall Fest Give these guys a like on their Facebook Photo Credit Sarah Binsfield KCR Blog KCR Music kcr college radio new artists new music Rock Music San Diego san diego concerts The Aura Øvation The Sounds of State Andrew DeLeon November 23 2014 Cameron Satterlee On Thursday I showed up to the Farmer s Market Turn Up to meet Andrew DeLeon With him were some familiar faces Joey Bautista who I did my first interview he also is in charge of the KCR Secret Sessions and former programming director Brendan Price Andrew was eager to be interviewed he had reached out to me on more than one occasion to volunteer Reciprocating his enthusiasm we went into the Communications building and sat down to have our chat Andrew is so far the only interviewee I ve had who I ve know beforehand Last year my 5 6 National Sports talk show on Wednesday was preceded by Andrew s show The Grand Illusion He was a great DJ to interview giving all of my questions thoughtful responses and his full attention In fact this is the longest interview I ve done so far at almost 13 minutes With that said I don t want to use any more of your time that takes away from the interview so let s jump right in Cameron Satterlee Okay I am sitting here with Andrew welcome Andrew DeLeon Thank you CS So what is your radio slot for KCR AD This semester I m doing Tuesdays from one to two I just figure it works with the class schedule I had and work schedule trolley schedule I pretty much just take what I can get as long as there s time for classes in there CS Uh huh You re pretty flexible with what time you get AD Yeah you know as long as it s not too late cause the trolley And then early because I did a show at 8 am one semester and that didn t turn out too well We were still in transition and there was a bunch of tech problems so I would try to call them and no one would answer We didn t quite have Alex yet CS Oh man yeah I don t think I d do an 8 am slot to be honest I mean that s good for you you stepped up and took the bullet pretty much AD I had to that was all they could give me I was willing to try I adjusted though it worked CS Yeah So how long have you been with KCR AD This is my sixth semester Interesting story on how I joined CS Wow I d like to hear it AD Yeah I m sure they would too I was in psychedelic rock class This was my freshman year I was just taking this for credits I didn t care about the whole upper division you have to take it at a certain time thing I m like you know what I m gonna take psychedelic rock class this will be fun And the guy I sat next to really tall guy kinda looked like Kurt Cobain he asked what do you want to do And I mentioned you know sports broadcasting or radio or tv something like that Even if it s just some behind the scenes work I m good with that And he said oh why don t you join the radio station KCR I said oh I didn t know that there was one on campus And he told me I think the semester before they were still trying to transition get it going but the semester I joined what when it really started taking off John was there Lincoln was there and it was really the rebuilding years when I joined and now I m happy to be here when it s a big part of the campus now CS Yeah I mean that s sort of the eternal struggle for KCR is getting people actually on our own campus to know about us AD Well look at it now We have a what hundred members or something CS Yeah we re doing very well for ourselves I mean guys like you who show up and become dedicated to your show is what really sets us off I think AD Right and I know I don t volunteer as much as I should but I ve tried to do my best here and at least wear my shirt whenever I do the show so that way people will know KCR listen in CS Yeah yeah totally So but you wanted to go into the radio the field before you joined AD Right because in high school I really started getting into baseball I had already been a fan but I was thinking you know what someone s got to take Ted Leitner s job eventually Make sure that no one calls anyone else a moron again laughs That was hilarious I give Ted credit for that That was funny Gotta love him CS Gosh I feel you with the baseball thing Well so I guess I m gonna take this in a different direction but so you currently have a music show and you ve had one for a while AD Right CS It s actually funny so I guess I ll say this for the benefit of the listeners but Andrew last semester preceded my show My sports hour So we knew each other before then So I kind of know the answer this question but for the audience what is the music you like to play AD Good stuff Good stuff CS Good stuff AD And by that I mean classic rock A lot of the shows on campus now they do Indie and folk and rap and hip hop there s a little much of that Some stuff is okay others I mean play what you want to play I got nothing against that But I thought you know what I ll play my music cause in high school here s the sad thing I graduated from Ridgemont High people didn t know who The Beatles were at that school anymore I would literally walk through Clairemont High School and people would say who are The Beatles so I thought you know what with this show I gotta do something about this So I took the classics mix in with a little new things and pretty much revive the genre and it s surprising how many people like you and Jackson always come in and say oh yeah these songs are awesome and so many people I ve met through this station they re like oh wow that s awesome that you do that That you play all these things Hell Alex and Brendan always sit in on my show I always catch them dancing or singing Everytime I play Huey Lewis Brendan always shouts HUEY or I ll dedicate a song to him and be like this is for him this is Phil Collins and he ll be like ah you re playing Phil Collins again yup that s correct And Alex just dances in the background so awesome CS You seem very passionate about your work Rock music I mean it s its own genre and I guess at this point in rock music s history you could say classic rock is its own separate sphere than what s going on now AD Yeah CS Is there anything a bit more specific than classic rock you play Like any real genre music AD I suppose it s not genres it s more themes What I do is try and set a theme each week and then I ll take sometimes I ll take disco sometimes I ll take some country and do that just to mix it up but then I take the rock songs and I ll say you know okay there s soft rock so I ll do soft rock this week Or there s a bunch of metal songs so I ll do some full metal jacket this week Or sometimes I ll incorporate sports I ll play songs that would be played at baseball games You were there when the dancing friars came in CS Yeah that was interesting Yeah I remember those themes now that you bring it up AD Yeah so it s not so much as a genre thing as it s more of a thematic show but it s more based on the rock genre I guess CS Yeah and so each show is different You re not just sorta playing off the same playlist every week you re mixing it up AD Right Yeah I even make a point to do that I say okay I already played that song this semester I m not going to play that again or at least make an attempt not to So that way I don t have repeats Sometimes I listen to the stations and it s the same set of songs every couple of days Or I ll drive to work I ll have on Easy and I ll hear for some reason they play In The Air Tonight on the Easy station so I ll hear that and then I ll drive to work like two days later I just heard this at the same time So I try to mix it up a little bit Make it interesting CS Yeah yeah So yeah I think that s a great way to do things it keeps things very interesting and different so that s a cool thing you do So I m curious why classic rock Why is it important to you I mean you like it but why do you like it Why is it important to you AD Because the stuff that people produce now has no instruments and there s almost no thought to a lot of it There is thought I do give people like Taylor Swift and you know some of the country people credit but a lot of the pop stuff now I mean like that song Turn Down For What by Lil John what is that I mean he just says what so much he s like I ll write a song with the word what in it It doesn t make sense anymore CS Well that s interesting I mean that s kind of a negative perspective to look at it You listen to classic rock because music now isn t that interesting to you AD Right I mean I m not saying all of it is I m just saying there s certain parts of where it just seems that the creativity isn t what it used to be anymore CS Well I mean that could be a whole different discussion that leaves us here for twenty minutes AD Exactly CS Well but I m curious if there s sort of a more cause you probably looked at in the sense that oh I like this classic rock music so this music doesn t look so good to me Which I understand I m a classic rock guy I m trying to you know contemporize myself but it can be difficult I ll admit But what made you like the rock music in the first place That s what I m trying to get to AD Right I guess it s because when I was little my mom played a lot of the stuff She played some newer stuff too so I kind of evolved around that But then a lot of the stuff like when I was in elementary school or middle school I would just hear this some of this stuff and I thought eh new stuff doesn t really appeal to me And I d listen to the older stuff and like okay this is good I like this So I just rolled with it CS Yeah I feel that s how a lot of people in our generation got to like classic rock I
