Probably "What the fuck is this shit?". Happens every time.
I showed my friend James Chance and The Contortions and he told me that my music was fucked up. I expected that honestly.
When I smoke with my friends I like to purposefully put on the weirdest shit i can think of.
Couple days ago I played part of pic related for them in a taco bell drive thru and they took it as prof that I am an alien.
Oh I forgot:
>in "music book club"
>have to pick albums to listen to each week
>supporting everyone's choices because I think it's important to listen to most all kinds of music
>there's one guy who only votes for/listens to rap and pop hits.
>mfw we had to listen to Iggy Azaela because he wanted to.
dude King Crimson is the bomb.
I showed a couple friends Death Grips. One hated it and the other appreciated it but couldn't get into it. I also showed qt Death Grips and she loved it. We were gonna go to Pitchfork to see them but then something came up on her end and the Death Grips broke up.
>mfw listen almost exclusively to metal
I just show them an instrumental atmospheric black metal track. Though I've had good results with showing people Lifelover tracks, even if they don't listen to metal.
That stuff is pretty accessible. People think that if they only listen to something for a few seconds or just one time they can have their mind made up on whether they like it or not.
It would be neat but so far we haven't really listened to anything challenging. Closest we have got is The College Dropout.
We almost weren't going to listen to Illmatic this week (as a group) because the Pop guy didn't like it.
"What is this? It sounds pretty good."
I even acidentally posted the remix they did of Pretty Boy Swag in a League of Legends game and one guy clicked it and said it was tight.
Have you guys not come out to the people you know about some of the music you listen to?
Whats the point of going to one of those things if you don't want to try new music? It sounds like something a parent would make their kid do. Like why even go if yourself wouldn't want to listen to new music ,did his mom make him go?
>Friend puts on BBNG
>Next friend puts on King Krule
>Another friend puts on Electic Wizard
>I put on James Blake and everyone thinks it's weird as shit and they look at me like what the fuck
>oh my god they're fucking stupid. their songs can't even fucking exist, why do people listen to them?
I literally showed him Bull of Heaven's first song, Weed Problem. Which was 44 minutes. Idiots.
My friends love the metal and "chill" music I put on
Showed them the radio dept. and The Contortionist the other day. They were really into
I've figured out exactly what theyd enjoy, since I also enjoy it, whereas before I would put on what /mu/ enjoyed
I only play ridiculously cheesy music at parties, like italo disco or Initial D soundtracks or speedcore, so there's bound to always bound to be a couple of guys who will like it because it's so over the top and that kind of music is generally fun as fuck when drunk. Most people don't like the stuff I play but it doesn't matter because I don't hog the whole playlist to myself.
I keep showing my friend music, he keeps liking it, but instead of finding anything else he just OBSESSES over what I show him and doesn't shut the fuck up about it
it gets to the point where all I can think about when I listen to it is hitting this motherfucker with a hammer.
He fucking ruined Lightning Bolt for me.
I showed my Christian, very pastel friend Caroliner. She actually liked it, and has talked about/asked me to play it since. She usually listens to pop hits, so it was a... Shocking discovery.
He's like, 22 or so.
He also is incredibly juvenile when criticizing music.
>It didn't interest me.
>What didn't interest you in the album?
>idk it just didn't interest me.
Yeah. Hopefully we'll eventually get to the more challenging stuff.
I've shown Death Grips to a lot of my friends.
>show bro friend "Hacker" - he asks who the band is and says he likes it
>show other bro friend Hacker, I've Seen Footage and Spread Eagle Cross The Block - likes them
>show gf Spread Eagle Cross The Block - says they're interesting but wouldn't listen to them without me
>one girl I showed them to hated them and that was it
>be at new job
>my new floor manager is playing music through a little phone dock they have
>tells me he's been getting into metal, and that he'll play some pop and then metal
>after a while he asks me what I want to put on
>Since I Left You
>it's not on Spotify
>blank for a moment
>put on Illmatic
>he ends up loving it
>he leaves as the album ends
>put on Doolittle next
>he comes back in and asks if I put that album on
>Pixies are one of his favorite bands
>end up having a long talk about what the best song off Doolittle was and what the best Pixies album is
>tfw when it's not hard at all to talk to people about music
I have 2 or 3 friends wich I can be totally open with my shit taste in noise, ambiental, drone, and all that kind of stuff that would have normal people worried about me. It feels fucking great.
One of them is into even weirder stuff than me and shows me bands all the time.
The Mars Volta
>this is weird
>this song is so long but actually feels like there are 3 songs in it
>wtf is this?
>why is he screaming so gay?
Any jazz/funk stuff
>this is elevator/supermarket music anon, how do you enjoy it?
>sounds good but i cant enjoy it at all
my own music
>well at least its what you like to do, didnt you?
>this is weird
>tfw almost all of them listen to thrash/glam/versr-chorus-verse-solo songs
>want friend to listen to LCD soundsystem
>put on "losing my edge"
>he tells me it's the worst thing he's ever heard almost instantly
>forcibly shuts it off after 2 minutes
>Show Starsailor to mama
>He sings like he got a trumpet up in his ass
>oh wait, that's not even singing
>the only two people who like this is you and the mother of the singer
>I bet you don't even like this
>He sings like a fucking monkey, If he was my son I would hit him until he screams like a man
it was fun
>Music book club
That actually sounds pretty cool, but unfortunately it would probably devolve into a pitchfork circle jerk, if it wasn't infested by complete and utter sub-0-level plens, that is.
Basically what I've been trying is to slowly wean them into more avant-garde through the easier stuff like Kid A. Even that, though, I am sure they won't like. There's another guy who suggests Girl Talk and Tobacco though, so that's neat.
Me and some friends did something like this, where we would all bring our favorite records over to one of our houses and listen to them while we played VG or drank or something. It was good fun.
>>mfw listen almost exclusive to metal
I know that feel, friend.
I've noticed the same thing when I've shown someone Life|over. There must just be some certain quality they possess that makes people more open to them.
I always play the first two tracks of Hello Everyone Nice to Meet You We Are Midori in the car. During the first one they all laugh at me and ask if I'm gay. Then the second track comes on and they go "WHAT THE FUCK TURN THIS OFF!" Then I play Wakusei Abnormal instead and they ask why I listen to such weird shit. By then anything else I play is relatively normal and they won't complain about it.
I don't show my friends music I know they won't enjoy. They like certain music and I'll ask them if they know the entry level artists to another genre and if they don't I leave it there, as I understand not everyone has the same taste.
I got one my friends into Cardiacs and another one is getting into Henry Cow. I usually show them weird stuff I find from time to time, but they don't usually like it. It's fun at least.
Haha, I have showed them Midori and Wakusei too. They sort of liked Midori, especially because at the beginning of a song it sounds like she is screaming one of my friends last name.
