Contributors’ Genre Roulette: Recommend a Genre

Hey everyone. The contributors are putting together a feature about exploring genres we’d normally avoid, and we need your help. We’re asking users to submit the genres we’re going to explore, and the songs we’ll be using to explore them. Here’s how it works:
1Ludwig van Beethoven
Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125


In the comments below, suggest ONE (1) genre that you like, but that you think a lot of listeners tend to avoid, and TWO (2) songs that you think serve as a good introduction to that genre.
2Al Di Meola
Casino


The genre you recommend must have a tag on RYM, and the songs must be shorter than 15 minutes each.
3Kacey Musgraves
Golden Hour


We’ll compile the recommendations here, and assign them semi-randomly to contributors who don’t already listen to those genres.
4Weird Al Yankovic
Polka Party


The deadline for submitting genres/songs is 11:59pm EST on Sunday, June 16th.
5Merzbow
1930


A couple weeks after the deadline, we’ll publish a blog feature of the contributors’ reactions to the songs you recommended. You will be credited in this feature.
