New BC Thread, the other one is dead.
Post your BC, and also talk about what one of your songs are about/what inspired them.
Thanks for everything. I'm near my 200th download. It's only been 2 months! Wow.
Anyways 'The Things I Do For Love' is about me wanting to mess around with girls for guilty pleasures, but at the same time I want something real. Hence the title "The Things I Do For Love"
'Coma' is about me trying to get this girl to realize how much I truly adore her. It is like she is blind and in a solidifying state of sleep and she can't see how much I truly want her, hence the title 'Coma'.
>BEDROOM POP & ELECTRONIC
>KAWAII INTERNET MUSIC REVOLUTION
check out some of the releases we've got on our page! we've got a ton of stuff varying from synthpop to shoegaze to ambient. dreams come true~
well the record as a whole was made with the intention of replicating the feelings i felt and received from
>Hiroshi Nagai's paintings
>the nauseating electric blue skies youd always see in most all first party sega dreamcast games
i loved how all these things looked like, what they felt to me. and i tried my hardest to make lifter sound like what these things looked and felt like. i think its why people like this record so much more than all of the other things i do; its got spiritual energy in it. its actually got a piece of me inside it. i dont really think that its music i made, but rather, ideas and emotions in my head that i simply transcribed into sound.
i ought to make more music like that.
"Dog Kills Mole" was inspired by when I saw my dog, which had always been perfectly harmless in my eyes, completely mutilate, destroy, and eat a mole he found in my yard.
>sad bedroom folk
>glitch hop, shoegaze, electronic
New album out!
>experimental pop / electroclash
>chiptune / digital chaos
All vocals taken from found sound cassettes of kids in the 80s and 90s!
Actually listening to this right NOW
Will be checking other's in the thread out soon
>12 tone experimental
the story on this EP is i had just moved back to where people i knew lived and started smokin pot again after a year of not. i wrote like 3 or 4 half songs that i lost before i got "save often" and the 12 tone songs i wrote in a night after watching a half hour vihart video on 12 tone stuff. and then this dude from ireland picked up on it and put it on his "net-label" and now he's getting pretty big and i feel so out of place on the page. i think he thought i played some of the guitars/drums or something too?
>rock, pop, acoustic
We have a follow up coming soon with another band.
Ey. My album is out next Tuesday. I have physical versions too!
I take a lot of elements from artists I like and I try to incorporate and twist them into something of my own. For instance the bassline from the song Velt Mark was inspired by DARKSIDE'S Paper Trails, because I was binging on that album when I made that song. On my album, I have a 5 second melodic reference to Rhubarb from Aphex Twin's SAW II. Other artists that inspired me during the making of this album were BoC, LCD Soundsystem, Dustin O'Halloran, Glasser, early Hot Chip, Four Tet, James Holden, a bit of Bonobo, Laurel Halo, Pere Ubu, Nils Frahm and Sun Araw
The title "¡Ember Up!" came from a dream the other member of the group had in which he bought a Nickelback album on vinyl, and a friend and I were impressed that he managed to buy their worst work. Naturally there are indications of this inspiration in the sampling choices of the title track.
I like that RLg album EP, nice to hear something positive, so rec.
I like it, I'm attracted to this kind of thing, very nice playing.
First time posting this anywhere because I wasn't huge on the quality of the recordings. Should be doing a proper few weeks in a studio with decent gear early July. The effort of the artwork represents the effort in recording unfortunately, but the music itself is something we worked hard on.
Man, this is really awesome. Really reminds me of a lot of 90s and early 2000s video game soundtracks, stuff by Alexander Brandon in particular.
i'm doing a covers album here is a coma cinema cover that'll be on it:
>midwest emo, punk
New album coming very soon, very hyped. Going to be releasing it with the dudes at Mecha Yuri.
Also feel free to follow the band's tumblr if you feel like it: http://hesdeadjimisaband.tumblr.com/
>Jimmy Mother Fucking Strings
>Jimmy Mother Fucking Strings Playing The Flood
>Jimmy Mither Fucking Strings
>guitar, improvisation, lofi, found sounds
My tracks aren't about anything that I could describe. I never have an idea upon which a track is based. Just sound.
This is volume 2 of my beats/ambient/vapor project. This one is more beat-heavy than the first. I'd love if you listened to it.
Track 15, "Puzzle Corp," started with an ADHD progression of bouncy ridiculous sounds going way too fast so that I could annoy the people in my living room while I was making it, but then it started to grow on me and morphed into a dirty, dirty trap beat.
>"apartments carved into the monolith" is one of the greatest titles i have ever seen
>soundtrack to a dreary bout of sea sickness on an incredibly beautiful day
>"nauseating electric blue skies" indeed
New album out!
>Post-rock/metal, samples, instrumental
Those are actually pretty cool meanings to your songs, cool, when do you think the album is coming out?
I'm almost at my 100th download of my previous, which is also a milestone for me! 99 actually!
My songs are mostly about sad parts of my life,and hope you enjoy :DDDDD
Most of the tracks in this album were inspired by my (kinda lonely) childhood and by a (kinda lonely) psychedelic girl.
>Punk rock, pop punk, Garage punk
Most of my songs are nothing more then a sort of rant against idiots that never ends. However the song "Sexy Death Soda" is about a nightmare I once had where I killed a bunch of teenagers driving around in the desert, tied one of them to a chair, proclaimed myself an angel, and hammered a nail into his head. I woke up quite disturbed.
I quite enjoyed this
really tight, loving these beats
damn this is so loud and amazing
this is pretty badass. I actually like the recording quality here. I was expecting just shitty one-mic in the center of the room recordings but the levels are awesome.
sounds good, downloaded
>harsh noise, glitch elements
New album, we're getting cassettes soon.
>psychedelic/experimental hip-hop, noise pop...?, idm
>noise, drone, ambient, idm
video for an unreleased release that relates more to the second link:
>banjo, covers, memes
>Glitch, IDM, Breakcore, Ambient, Other
New album up!
>symphonic/electronic prog EP, three songs, twenty five minutes
"Baglo" was inspired by my older brother's 18th birthday party a few years back. No fireworks were set off, nor were any French windows smashed, but a few plates got broken and I found someone getting a blowjob in my bedroom.
Just getting started with music, but its so much fun. My favorite track is Drone A. I recorded that on my dorms piano, set to strings, and then put a bunch of effects on it. There really isnt anything special about the music, just some different chords dragged out, but the music becomes interesting by me turning gain up and down which works nicely with echo. But my favorite part of the track is the way it builds to the end, where i add a pretty nice piano bell melody. Since i recorded it in my dorm lobby you can hear kids talking/walking around. pretty cool lo-fi aspect to the track. I also put a recording of my professor lecturing in there as well. all three kind of combine to make a really nice pay off after 5 or so minutes of build up
>minimalist folk, psych folk, generally dark music
Thanks for the listens and downloads my neighborinos
>Musique concrète, Ambient, Drone
On the last night in my old apartment, once everything had been moved out and all the power and everything had been cut off, I still had a couple of days before my lease started in the new place so I basically had to squat in my empty apartment with power, water, or even a bed for several days. While I was there I had nothing to do, only had my laptop on me with a dwindling battery and no internet. Took a sample of the ambient stillness of the emptied apartment and worked it into an appropriation of the stillness and boredom that I felt during those days.
My laptop got stolen and I lost everything I was working on, so I released a new EP. Would love to hear what you think.
> noisy analog electronic psych
My album is about me coping with drug issues and bedroom depression and trying to find healthy alternatives to numbing my life away, the negative represented with sky imagery, positive with oceanic
Astonishingly heartfelt, love the piano, it sounds like it was recorded at the bottom of the ocean, my dad once said dolphins swim along the coast the Britain but I've never seen one
You're a fucking babe, great guitar, everything, great
>tfw drunk and england lost and the girl at work doesn't love you and birds just started singing
I want to listen to more but it's all making me feel ill
>experimental psychedelic indie rock
recommending this, always gotta give props to my buds
decided to check this out cause I see you post often, and I didn't know you were a web label that's cool. tell RLg I liked their stuff
took the sample on this from a coke ad on a tape that my mom recorded before i was born. the tape got eaten by our VCR minutes after i recorded it, and the files/multitracks to the song were lost when my hard drive got ruined a few months later. idk, it's got this weird importance to me i can't put my finger on. plus it's my only good song.
>mfw the "essentials" are mostly made up of some of the shittier artists, and most of the good artists are not actually acknowledged
i don't want to mention any artists, whether they're good or shitty, i'm more just irritated that most of the replies to the "essentials" are just to latch onto them by the tit and suckle at the attention that the suckling artists' replies are creating themselves. i mean aside from the fact that a lot of the "essential" artists are incredibly boring and untalented.
Hopefully soon. I'm trying not to rush it. All the files got deleted so I'm remaking all the tracks all over again :-(. All i've finished so far is "The Things I Do For Love" and another 2 tracks. Which I don't want to give away their names yet because they're not final.
The album in the link is basically a concept album about a series of events that happen right before an imminent disaster. Coincidentally, I started working on the album right after Hurricane Sandy hit New York.
shoot, I forgot to do the song inspiration thing
Safe is inspired by this one time when I was hanging out with Jeremiah, the drummer and we were talking about how funny spongebob is out of context, and someone quoted "at least I'm safe inside my mind" and I thought those would be great lyrics for a song. so we made that song using spongebob quotes as lyrics. we also sampled a line from the show
Chrondo - NANOCHIPS
>Post future electronic album about loneliness and searching for nanochips
>dream-punk / downtempo / shoegaze / girl vox
album inspired my the booboo in my head
Nah man. Although it has been getting alot of love and hate. There was a thread here the other day that was pretty harsh that actually had a link to my personal Twitter and stuff. I thought that was pretty rude, but eh its 4chan. People are ruthless.
not this guy >>47550224 but there is a lot of shitty jangle pop in these threads and it always seems to get popular. as well as "shoegaze influenced" stuff. bugs the shit out of me, it's always so boring
You've gotta admit that shit was p funny
>not sure if my computer is falling apart or if this is actually the music
the mixing is pretty bad, the vocal and guitar takes could be much better... it isn't the worst, but it's not anywhere near the best
PLUS it's only two songs, and we're expected to believe a bunch of people are freaking out over these two songs when there a much better artists (like vanishes) who've put out full albums.
yes i know he was working on one and his computer broke, but my point is the "hype" came before that.
Nearly shat my britches when I saw the alternative cover art
Kudos to you, LE spammer
I hate when someone calls their music shoegaze or "shoegaze-influenced" and I write it off, accidentally listen way later, and it turns out to be great. People need to come up with better descriptions, even if they sound a little pretentious. So many underappreciated gems.
What's some good baddescriptioncore/badalbumartcore?
Hey Foliage here, and these tracks are being remade for the album don't worry. I admit, I didn't do much mixing or mastering for these singles, but they have gathered alot of attention and love so I guess i'm happy that people wanna hear more.
I'm the new keeper of the list fight me
also wild ivy, foliage, sigmund freud and lunar eskimo deserve to be on the list simply because they're household names here, and the point of bandcamp threads is for /mu/sicians to (try) and get exposure, so the fact that you know their name means they're substantial in the regard
Space party alone tonight hit me in the feels haha.
I'm the new keeper of the list fight me
Not a big drone guy but this sounded great loud
This was great, also i loved your physical copy as well, looks fantastic.
don't remember what I said about your EP way back when but I really liked your new album.
you may not like any of them but these were my favorites from 2013
'Pulling Backwards' is about an alcoholic relationship
The song 'Limerence' is basically about limerence.
'Just a Picture' is a song about an ex from a while ago.
Hope you enjoy thanks!
I'm not, but go ahead and think that. I'm guessing you're another poster in these threads who is just a bit angry at some of the more appreciated Bandcamp pages. I had no intent of being so liked. I'm sorry people like my music. Let's all apologize to YOU for people enjoying my music.
The two song EP you'll find if you click the link is a concept album, in a way. The lyrics to both songs are about the singer's failing relationship. The first song is about them pushing through the failure and making it work, and the second song is about it eventually failing anyway despite all that effort. The singer wrote the music for the first one, so I can't really speak to what exactly inspired him, but we tuned to Open C major for that one, which is kind of unique in the punk world. I (the drummer) wrote the music for the second one. I had just discovered Alcest and Les Discrets when I wrote it, and we had just gotten our hands on an 8string guitar and a fretless bass, so trying to apply some of that in a hardcore punk context was fun.
its fine for now. I really like Benji
any ones on this list that should be replaced with newer ones that are (to general consensus) better?
The Union is about (or more to) my dad, who left my mom for another woman when I was a kid.
Burn It Down is about a girl who I was seeing for about 3 years who continually slept with other guys and lied to me, and just about how our relationship turned into more of a pit of shit every time I tried to make things better.
>vapor >post-post >tribal
my songs were inspired by metro-ko
i truely have no life.it used to be that i made it in at least 2 bc threads a day, and have, with a few exceptions, kept that up everyday since i released lifter back in july.
it doesnt take much time out of my day to post here, but it really is a testament to how skewed my priorities can be.
Not my type of music but I could still dig it.
>electronic, gunk, trance
"fantasy island ii" was inspired by an awful headache i was having so i listened to replica like 3 or 4 times and then threw a net club sample in to ableton and played with it a bunch and well two days later u have yr finished trak
a lot of this record was inspired by some personal relationship sexuality and gender issues i've been having as well as the last one
funny u say that i created metro-ko :)
New cover album
And the concept album I'm working on
+reccing these and downloaded in the past
>field recordings for a short film I shot, second track is good tier.
>lo-fi dreamwave crap
>piano, rock, experimental
New track going up soon.
Not my project, but this guy's a friend of mine and he can use all the exposure he can get. I'd post my own bandcamp if I have one, and this isn't a soundcloud thread.
>ambient, shoegaze, gloom
All the songs are about being lonely, except for Surfer's Groove. Twins = Gemini, Crab = Cancer. Supposedly Geminis are supposed to be the center of attention while Cancers are usually introverts, and the lyrics play with relationships built between the two. I also toy with the idea of people sinning and god in The Garden. Alot of the songs are acoustic, I end up playing surfy rock when I play on the electric, so the final version will be a mixture between the two.
lunareskimo.bandcamp.com (good luck in exams)
>synth laden ambient, soft/warm noise
pretty much made the album during a very shitty month in order to focus on something that wasn't crushing anxiety for once
Posting for a friend's band
>horror, shoegaze funk, from scratch and sample based
my favorite track is 88bmp. i made it during this amazing morning rain shower that just had the most beautiful quiet din that put me in an exceedingly solemn mood. i sat down with my ukulele and came up with this pedal tone based riff and pitched it down using my sp-404. i loaded up some drums into my mpc and recorded the drum beat for it all into ableton live like i was jel or some shit. everything just came together and felt so right, one of those magical moments when your music just comes out without you even noticing.
Its somewhat of an outlier on this album which has a lot of aggressive and ridiculous songs but i like the more chilled and emotional songs on here the best personally.
