Please recommend me some songs that sound like Work Song by Hozier, Retrograde by James Blake, and Fame as covered by Mefi's own chocoat.

I have problems figuring out whether note A is higher pitched than note B, so I have no ability to put it into reasonable musical terms.

But in my head, the songs are similar. So dirge-like and sad, but kinda defiant? And maybe spare? I have no idea, but more angry and less pretty than the Jeff Buckley version of Hallelujah.

Hozier's cover of the Arctic Monkeys was awesome in the same way as these songs.

Putting the Dog to Sleep by The Antlers has some of that slow jam sad and defiant thing going.

I Am Stretched On Your Grave - Kate Rusby

Poem to the Gael

You could try creating a Pandora station using those songs. I've got a station based on Poem to the Gael which yields a fair amount of dirge-like songs, as does my Pandora "Hozier" station.
