    This amazing little EP on Bandcamp has had me rethinking my OP! Have a listen, and give it a chance. The “band” name is great too. Only four bucks but I gave them a fiver.

I'm not good at describing these things, but basically I feel like she sounded like so many of the female singer/songwriter types sound these days. Has anyone else noticed this? Are male voices just as similar and I'm not realizing it?

    I just feel like there's a type of female singing voice I hear over and over, and I'm not really fond of it. I know they can't all be as unique as Kate Bush or Joni Mitchell, but... Know what I mean? It may of course also be what most people want these days, I don't know.
    I think I know the type of voice you are talking about.

    It seems to me, like they are trying to sing with extreme, forced emotion, and it comes off sounding overwrought.

    They tend to add, what sounds to me, like an artificial gravely aspect, and they make their voices break and crack in an unnatural way.

    I hate to say it, but many of them are doing this (IMO), to cover for the lack of a modicum of: range, intonation, power, ability to sing out of their chest, etc.
    And if there were a god, I think it very unlikely that he would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence - Russell

    Given the name, Skullcrusher's music was not what I expected.
    I'm not lazy. I just work so fast I'm always done.
