i'm going to share ~20 albums
some of it is obscure, some of it is just stuff i want more people to listen to
P.S. fuck those captcha's that are an image of numbers that cant be completed
Freestyle Fellowship - Innercity Griots (1993)
a couple really great MCs (including aceyalone and myka 9) make a really great album with some really fast flows and a really jazzy feel
Mechanical Me - I Like (2000)
>downtempo, trip hop
you may know mechanical me from bonobo's mix of beachy head. this is one of two releases from mechanical me: a 4-song EP, but its pretty great
Arovane - Tides (2000)
>ambient techno, boardsofcanadacore, downtempo
some people say arovane is a BoC rip off, but this album has a really particular tone and mood. really pleasant allbum
Gel: - -1 (2001)
this album is incredibly unique. it has pretty progressive compositions while using tons of samples. this album feels really claustrophobic, introverted and loose
VERY highly recommended
Jetone - Ultramarin (2001)
tim hecker before tim hecker. this album is quite similar to Haunt Me, Haunt Me Do It Again except that it has sparse beats underneath. pretty bleak and chilling album
Kim Hiorthoy - Melke (2002)
really incredible compilation. kim utilizes field recordings and tons of strange sounds, making little 'melody collages' with multiple samples bouncing around. feels like home
Gel: - Dolce (2003)
really quite similar to fennesz's endless summer, but with more glitch and maybe a bit more progressive. somewhat like >>47515476 without the beats
sample: there's nothing from this album on youtube
Galerie Stratique - Horizzzons (2003)
sad, yet very beautiful. a middle ground between boards of canada and ulrich schnauss
Oren Ambarchi - Grapes From The Estate (2004)
utilizes guitars, bells and whistles heavily. really gripping and drenchingly beautiful album
oh yeah forgot about that
AOKI Takamasa + Tojiko Noriko - 28 (2005)
>(sweet trip) + glitch - shoegaze
hard to describe. download this if you enjoy V:D:C by Sweet Trip. The closest album there is to that sound.
Longmont Potion Castle- LMP 7
>surrealist prank calls, thrash metal
>some dude, who has managed to remain totally anonymous for YEARS, calls various businesses and famous people doing extremely surreal prank calls where he runs his voice through effects pedals, loopers, time delay, echo, stretches it out, etc. It's not as tryhard as it sounds, believe me. It's legitimately hilarious and I don't understand this guy at all.
>highlights include him calling Alex Trebek trying to get him to confirm a shipment of 50 metric tons of Sod from Korea, repeatedly calling his neighbor asking to borrow a broom while running his voice through effects pedals, shit like that.
>eric andre as fuck
still in 128 but i've heard there's a v0 on slsk. working on getting that one.
its really, really relaxing, i took a nap between each half of the album the first time i listened to it haha
Bibio - Fi (2005)
someone on RYM described this as "the ghost of nick drake on guitar" which i find pretty accurate. this is bibio before he went towards dance. quite uplifting, and incredibly great
(also Marcus Eoin of BoC heard a demo of this album and pushed it to labels for him to get signed, fun fact)
Pilote - Pop Will Make Us Free (2007)
really bubbly downtempo / trip hop. another artist who bonobo has remixed (turtle). relaxing, not too overly emotional or beautiful, but relaxing, refreshing and happy
Pretend - Bones in the Soil, Rust in the Oil (2009)
emphasis on math. kind of like american football decided to make 10+ minute songs, with more rhythmic experimentation.
i just realized what this was and im laughing my ass off
Owen - New Leaves (2009)
>folk, indie rock
really pretty album. Mike Kinsella's solo project. Not as 'experimental' or 'mathy' as his previous albums, but really great
Disko - Drivan (2010)
>indie pop, downtempo
really hard to say what this album is. Kim Hiorthoy's side project with 3 female vocalists. post-rock approach with incredible melodies and a really comfy vibe. personal 10/10.
i had to personally buy and rip this CD to listen to it all
Aphilas - Earth 0 (2011)
>downtempo, trip hop
not particularly groundbreaking, but much like >>47515868 its really pleasant, relaxing and interesting. really great
sample: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GBPsyPge1I4 (only track on youtube, there are better ones)
Calum Johnston - ...Above the Treeline, Order Can Be Seen Among The Forest (2012)
really sparse, but johnston leaves you hanging onto every single note or harmonic. very quiet, but really well made.
sample: nothing on youtube
no problem. you may also enjoy/want to dl >>47516184 and this post
Opitope - Physis (2014)
airy ambient with bells, whistles, and the occasional double bass. this album feels like waking up from a morning nap on your porch in the summer sun with a breeze across your face
Blithe Field - Beautiful Wave '74 (2010)
unique album of samples and little music bits which spencer radcliffe turns into compositions. feels like home. apparently radcliffe samples his home VHS tapes often
thats annoying. just a sec
Pretend - Bones in the Soil, Rust in the Oil (2009)
if anyone has requests, here's my music folder (a good majority is complete discographies)
satanstompingcaterpillars - The Most Wonderfulest Thing (2002)
>black moth super rainbow demos
bmsr before bmsr. demos, lofi stuff. hard to describe. guitars, synths, drums, an acid trip.
Lund Quartet - Sequoia
Kim Hiorthoy - Hei (2002)
a lot of bells and whistles, a lot like his later stuff but with less drums.
Go to >>47517153, read the sticky and don't ask for links before checking doing both.
If the OP doesn't say request thread, don't ask for links either or prepare to be insulted.
Fuck man, I am literally crying. I haven't laughed this hard in forever. Thank you.
(2013) Back To Basics
>sampled jazz, funk, electronic, groovy
I downloaded both of them a while ago and have thoroughly enjoying them.
here's the fix
Tosc - Sumer (2014)
>Post-rock, speech samples, follow up to fall of man
rockist reporting in :)
you're in the right place
hopefully left after sky blacklisted any of the requests that would summon her. what happened to sky's archive?
to offset any shitposting, have a link from http://public-embarrassment-blues.blogspot.ca/:
>Mamoru Fujieda- Patterns of Plants (1997)
>Apparently if plants could speak they would talk in brief phrases that meander and loop over and over and over, only slightly varying with each iteration, yet still conveying great depth: showing that the seeming randomness of our electricity causally links us to nature, to the chill of air that hits you after rounding a corner, or the whirling path those helicopter seeds take after launching from their pods to the ground below, or the chirping crickets that won't shut the fuck up on a summer night yet still create a lulling drone that canvases an entire forest, as if blanketing your ears for protection from damning silence, from silence that, when present, makes you turn inward, chewing on your own thoughts to fill the void with some chatter all at the expense of your own sanity, which is merely the result of sparks running through your head in a certain fashion, the same sparks that reach out into air and feel that wind chill or process that image of the seed spinning, spinning, around and around, meandering through the air before abruptly coming to a halt, in the style of those plants, whose language floats about in a circle, both going nowhere but still saying so much in the process.
please organize this
these are all rad cheers
also does anyone have any later Prefuse 73 albums (the first three are in the archive) or any Portico Quartet albums besides their s/t one? Those would be nice.
Are You still here?
I need some old J-Live, either The Best Part, or All of the Above, if you have it them.
No. That's what annoys me about her.
Sharing is fine and good, but spamming the same stuff over and over is not.
Try the archive anon. He doesn't have those.
The Rippingtons - Black Diamond [192kbps]
>Local-on-the-8's core, real smooth, e-z-cheezy jazz, Kenny G, good stuff to sample for broporwave
First select the folder where you have the music (the option is on the first tab, I think).
Then select everything, right click->file operations->move files.
There are lots of ways to organize, but like to separate stuff by artist folders and then artist+year+album name on the sub folders.
If you don't find something, google it and you should be fine.
The Rippingtons - Curves Ahead [192kpbs]
>doesn't actually have Kenny G in it**, but it might as well. It evokes Kenny G
I don't have my external hard drive with me, but there's still a couple of stuff on my computer, feel free to request some of these albums
library : http://pastebin.com/rFuqHG01
before requesting, don't forget to look in the archive at rbt.asia/mu/
Bonobo - Animal Magic (320kbps)

The Rippingtons - Sahara [256kbps this time]

Movie Magick - Movie Magick  [320kbps]
>dark ambient, idm, nostalgia
Damn these are good. Weird, but good. Reminds me a ton of what I used to listen to in highschool, getting a little nostalgic over here
Kenny Burrell - All night long
hard bop, one of the great allstars sessions from the Prestige lavel. just look at that lineup
True Neutral Crew - #MONSANTO
>krautrap, I guess. That's how they describe it
It's some cool shit. Rapper from clipping. is part of the group.
Kenny Burrell - All day long
and here is another of these allstars sessions, with a different but equally enjoyable lineup
Experimental Aircraft - Third Transmission: Meet Me On Echo Echo Terrace
>Austin Shoegaze Band, One of the best shoegaze records of the 21st century
as said >>47521999 and his trips, My brother the wind is a pretty good band
you should also try Electric Moon
Dave Holland - Extended play
from 2003, a quite amazing quintet live recording that is always cohesive, full of surprises and never boring despite the pretty consistent length of the impros

The Rippingtons - Moonlighting [216kbps]

The Rippingtons - Full Discography 
>Smooth Jazz, Lounge
>Includes Live from New York, very #rare
You mean for broporwave?
I have all but St. James, all of which have been posted in their respective albums (not sure which is which), and I assume those are the songs, yes? I'm not missing entire albums titled after some of their songs right?
Those LMPs (and others) are on Waffles in V0 and it's freeleech there right now. I'd download them and post but I'm already running late for work.
Can someone else do it?
Does anyone have The Wonder Years - Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing
All the links in the archive are ded and the torrents on mutracker are in a similar state
I'd be super grateful to anyone who could up it/share a link for it
I know this is kind of a weird request, but does anyone have Sergio Mendes & Brazil '66? I'm looking for one album in particular, Equinox. Funny enough, I have the LP but can't find a digital copy. Anyway, if someone has it PLEASE post it? Thanks!
very interesting thread, thanks cueman. ill be keeping an eye out for you.
especia - GUSTO
>j-pop takes on vaporwave
american football deluxe edition bonus tracks (outtakes, practice sessions etc)
i only had his two most recent LPs in a good bitrate, but here they are
Meditations Upon Meditations (The Japanese Diaries)
The Only She Chapters
KOOL A.D.-ELECTRIC KOOL A.D. ACID TEST
i feel you brother
that shit hits home for some reason
Check out the 2 smooth jazz CDs The Weather Channel released. Basically all of the major Local on the 8s-core artists (minus a few) in 2 CDs. Ryan Farish especially has pretty much dominated the Local on the 8s.
Unfortunately I had one of the two albums but I lost the CD, I think you can order them online or buy them at a Barnes and Noble (that's where I got mine), and I think the albums (or the songs on them) are uploaded on YouTube.
>The Knife - Silent Shout - An Audio-Visual Experience
>live album, synthpop, it's silent shout ofc
>Ice Cream Cathedral - Drowsy Kingdom
>Synth Pop, Shoegaze,
>Hype Williams - S.E.A.L. IV, Pumplex
>one ~25 minute long track, only released in the middle east and mainland europe. odd lo-fi shit. typical hype williams.
Gnarkill - S/T (2003)
>Musical Parody, Heavy Metal, Punk Rock
If you're a bit too old to have called yourself a 90's kid, but are also too young to be a Gen-Xer, you might have watch Jackass, and it's spin off, Viva La Bam. Gnarkill is the brainchild of Brandon Dico and Bam Margera. When I first listened, I honestly could not stop laughing. Brandon keeps making the same rhymes and jokes and it's so childish and repetitive that it's just a crazy 20 minutes that I totally thank this guy for. This isn't the most intellectually challenging thing to listen to in this thread; in fact, it might actually make you dumber. But my goodness, it's funny.
Didn't see it posted yet
hyphyskazerbox - In The Wake Of Sickness
>psychedelic, free jazz, instrumental hip-hop
Daycare Riot - Noise
>IDM, Industrial, Glitch, Dark and gritty electronic
This seems to be the right place to ask, been using google fu for an hour, trying to find an old album, well, late 2000s, album's name was mesopelagic, and it had a cover with Moai's underwater with the word mesopelagic on it, only like two songs were on it, can't remember for the life of me the band name or the actual songs names, but it was trance with deep ocean sounds.
The Dandy Warhols - 13 Tales From Urban Bohemia
>Neo Psychedelia, Indie Rock
Highly recommended, at least check out the sample
Skinny Puppy - Too Dark Park
>Electro-Industrial, Industrial Rock, Sound Collage
I really hated Skinny Puppy for a while for being edgy mallgoth EBM shit, but this album is actually really good and doesn't just sound like dance music, it has almost baroque industrial arrangements and is really really layered and great throughout.
oh cueman you have my exact taste, only that i'm much more plebbed, its hard to find nice downtempo these days, a lot of "chillwave hipsters" abuse of the downtempo genre so its really difficult to find stuff that has the same old line, intelligent music, happy, nostalgic but somehow minimal. You are just awesome.
Thanks for everything
You didn't just do my day. You did my entire month.
Ebo Taylor - Life Stories: Highlife & Afrobeat Classics 1973-1980 (2011)
>Highlife, Afrobeat, Afro-Funk
Ghana's Ebo Taylor is dissected and presented on a double LP generously packed with some of the catchiest Ghana funk, afrobeat and touches of highlife. This is the real deal a real party record too. This is a compilation of various projects that he's worked with as a producer, bandleader, etc. Funky as hell and grooving from start to finish with a couple of familiar tracks that have popped up elsewhere.
My god this universe....!!! This album has everything I've been needing in music....!!!!! It has so much PSO, but still a....... Is this what trip hop is?!?!?!?! It's this "PSOcore" I've been dying for......!!! Please from the bottom of my soul accept my thanks.... I've needed this!
I have never been able to understand why people like vaporwave
But this is some good shit
