    Hopefully this thread will serve more use than just the help I'm looking for. I did a search and couldn't find a thread like this :)

    I'm looking for music that has a deep, slow voice as the focus of the song, with instruments taking a back seat.

    Two songs in this rough ball park are Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen.

    Cheers!

    A deep, slow voice ? You should give Bill Callahan's later recordings a listen : Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle and Apocalypse, both on Drag City, both excellent, and very much in that thoughtful, "poetic" Leonard Cohen tradition.

    Anything by Mark Lanegan - possibly the deepest and slowest of all voices

    Tindersticks should fit the bill.

    Yeah, his work as Smog is brilliant too.

    You should definitely give Lambchop a go, they don't quite fit exactly but that shouldn't matter.

    Smog/Bill Ballahan was the first thing that came to mind when I read 'deep and slow'. Smog - Dress Sexy At My Funeral

    Edit* Haha, beaten to it.

    Smog - Rock Bottom Riser is great. In fact that whole of A River Ain't Too Much To Love is brilliant.

    Swans might also. Perhaps.

    While Callahan's Smog stuff is great, and easily on par with his "real-name" work, I didn't mention it because his voice isn't quite as deep as it later gets. As if it he hadn't quite come to terms with his voice's natural register.

    Have you listened to a band called MS MR. They are an electronic duo who are currently rising up the hype bandwagon at the moment.

    Few links for you here.

    Spotify
    Youtube.

    Then for old times sake, check out the Justice Force 5.

    I see Lambchop, Callahan and Tom Waits have been mentioned. :)

    How about some blues? Lightnin' Hopkins has a pretty deep voice:




    And just because it is such a lovely performance:

    This is from Cousteau's first album. Liam's got a pretty rich voice.

    Leonard Cohen's track on the Natural Born Killers OST is a beaut.



    Richard Hawley maybe?

    @Beetroot_Bertie

    Leonard's voice sounds great in that song, but is that MIDI instruments that I hear? :D

    And cheers guys! :)
