>MAJOR fucking depression.
You're not depressed, kid. You just like feeling sorry for yourself
this album won't help you feel any better. it'll actually probably make you feel worse. but its so nice to hear a beautiful womanly voice describing the same things you're going through
>TFW Secret Friends
Am I the only one who thinks that's the saddest song on the album? Like, yeah, I know Helpless Child, Animus and such are obvious downers, but there's just something about Secret Friends that conveys its message so well purely through just the music, without the need for any lyrics.
If you need heavy, angry, emotional guitar, then look no further.
OP, do you mean albums that are enjoyable when you are depressed, or albums that are depressing in general?
For the former, I recommend some American Football or other emo band of your choice. I find that some mildly aggressive emo revival music can make me feel a lot better. If you haven't listened to Snowing - Fuck Your Emotional Bullshit, I highly recommend it.
For the latter, I'd suggest some of Dan Barrett's music, namely Have A Nice Life - Deathconsciousness and Giles Corey - s/t. Also try The Angelic Process - Weighing Souls With Sand (pic related) if folk/industrial isn't your thing.
I'M OLDER THAN ALL OF YOU YOUNGINS. . .78 AND STILL GOING STRONG !!!
LOL THIS INTERNET IS TOO YOUNG FOR AN OLD EGG LIKE ME...
>MAJOR fucking depression
>Ingesting pop culture entertainment
pls. You don't have time for that shit when your head is screaming at you and you're severely harming yourself.
The sound on an oncoming train as you jump in front of it, probably.
>YFW Bowie does this.
>YFW he calls it Rock 'n' Roll Suicide.
at least a good portion. posting anonymously to a board of your interest is common among loners, lonelies, autists, socialphobics and the anxious, as opposed to people who have steady friendships and relationships.
but it won't be cathartic, this will make you feel worse
relevant question: is there such thing as a suicide album?
like a suicide note, but instead of leaving a note before killing themselves, they release an album with the intention of that being their note
there was one guy who did that a bunch of times and kept surviving his attempts
one of the album covers was him slitting his wrists in the bathtub
i cant remember who it was though
This or pic related. Actually, any AJJ would work.
To me, this is one of the most absolutely heartbreaking albums ever made - especially if you know the backstory.
Last night I dreamed that I was a child out where the pines grow wild and tall
I was trying to make it home through the forest before the darkness falls
I heard the wind rustling through the trees and ghostly voices rose from the fields
I ran with my heart pounding down that broken path
With the devil snappin' at my heels*
I broke through the trees and there in the night
My father's house stood shining hard and bright
The branches and brambles tore my clothes and scratched my arms
But I ran till I fell shaking in his arms
I awoke and I imagined the hard things that pulled us apart
Will never again, sir, tear us from each other's hearts
I got dressed, and to that house I did ride from out on the road, I could see its windows shining in light
I walked up the steps and stood on the porch
A woman I didn't recognize came and spoke to me through a chained door
I told her my story, and who I'd come for
She said "I'm sorry son, but no one by that name lives here anymore"
My father's house shines hard and bright it stands like a beacon calling me in the night
Calling and calling, so cold and alone
Shining 'cross this dark highway where our sins lie unatoned
am I the only one who can't really listen to anything cohesive while being emotional wreck? When I'm really fucking bummed (don't want to use the word depressed) I can't really listen to anything but noise/harsh noise
I don't feel like listening to music at all when depressed
if you just want music to beat yourself up to listen to Codeine or something
It's more likely that a lot of people here simply aren't happy as opposed to being actually clinically depressed
Being upset about some girl not wanting to suck your dick is different than not experiencing any pleasure in anything
Saturday Night Big Cock Salaryman by The Gerogerigegege is thought to be just that but it turns out he just kinda dissappeared for about ten years
The Holy Bible by Manic Street Preachers could be, technically
Mark didn't kill himself after It's a Wonderful Life
dub techno is good music for that 3am staring into nothing feeling nothing wondering where it went wrong and why haven't I felt anything at all for years I can't wait for my mom and dad to pass away so I can finally kill myself guilt free kinda vibe
This is a good answer
This kind of sucks.
Fucc the Devil and Rain On Me are fucking perfect
Good album. Mistress is the best song, I think, but DCF is a lot better as an album. It stays in the same place for such long times. It almost drones on these incredibly dark songs. RHP is fucking great though.
>I WISH I HAD A BULLET BIG ENOUGH TO FUCKING KILL THE SUN
>I'M SICK OF SONGS ABOUT THE SUMMER
>AND I HATE EVERYONE
Freebird and Bigbird played back to back hit me in the feels hard though.
>I've got to get out of my skin, but I don't know where to begin
>And right now I feel worthless
>And I feel crazy
why would this be so cheesy coming from any other voice? what makes this work so well?
That whole album is so good. I love People that Can... but I'm afraid to listen to any of their other stuff. Like, what if it's not as good?
Obviously this or Turn On The Bright Lights by Interpol, whichever more suits your taste
can we get some nigger albums up in this bitch?
I believe it dude. I'd love to have seen it.
>why would this be so cheesy coming from any other voice? what makes this work so well?
i think partially because he's self aware about it. he has that quasi-whiny voice which makes it sound like he's aware of how cheesy it sounds
AJJ has never really been depression-core for me. I listen to it when I'm just bummed for some self loathing and the cheering up but in times when I have been depressed it hasn't really done anything to me.
Sorry bro is amazing lift up song
>tfw we're thw kids in america part kicks in
I don't find TOTBL depressing at all.
It's more gloomy and dark but it makes me feel badass and want to wreck shit up when I hear it.
Makes me want to go find a girl and fuck her
Fukking love jamming to this one m8
SHE CAN READ SHE CAN READ
fucking love singing along to it
Only depressing parts would be
>Tired of spending these lonely nights
>training myself not to care
New York Cares
>got to be some more change in my life
New York Cares
>got to be some more change in my life
not even from new york but it gives me feels
I like it for >>48882725, it's kind of cathartic to hear somebody who seems to know exactly how you feel sometimes, and the self-aware cheesiness is pretty good for wallowing in your own shit
>maybe if I did something real
>you would like me more
Not nearly as sad as their early works sans three imaginary boys
Great album. Here's another good one
>so what, no one sees me
>what do i care now the black night has seized me
Anything by Daniel Johnston, once you listen to the misery of a tormented deluded maniac who could have been something greater than what he is, you'll gain a new perspective on life. It's a double edged sword tho, you can also end up falling deeper into the abyss with him
>epic "big black cloud" chant on IV. Mount Eerie
>only repeats 3 times before being interrupted

I wonder if people here have heard this. It is amazing
Agreed. I got pretty confused when I first came to this board. For about 6 months I stopped enjoying music. Or pretty much anything else for that matter. I listened to new albums but it seemed like more of a chore than a hobby. Life was just boring. At the time I tried blaming this board, I thought perhaps it was she sheer amount of music I was ingesting, perhaps all the new albums I was listening to. Looking back though I was going through the roughest patch of depression of my life so far.
Pic related helps me when I'm on a downer though. Also very relatable post-depression.
In my most depressed time I used to listen to Deine Lakaien and feel sorry about myself, nowadays I'd say this one fits perfectly.
fuck nigger I didn't need that feel so late at night
Finally, someone else who listens to Casiotone
Etiquette is a fucking depressing as all hell album
I remember hearing "I Love You Creedence" for the first time when I was like, 14 or 15, and falling in love with it, although I never followed up on the album until a few moths ago
This album personifies depression perfectly
>tfw can never listen to this album again because of the feels I associate with it
That album did a lot for me when I was dealing with depression. It glorifies the archetype of 'the freak' since the character of Ziggy Stardust is such a beautiful and bizarre outcast. A lot of the songs are good for getting through depression - Rock & Roll Suicide, Lady Stardust, Five Years, and Moonage Daydream all come to mind quickly
thanks, saving that one
I actually remember having text, fuck, but the last time I used it was before I got banned for like a year and a half so maybe some shit happened to my files
>David Bowie reveals two weeks ago that he has a new studio album in the works
>See this today
Bowie pls don't
I fucking kek'd at that…
>Needle in the Hay (That fucking Royal Tenenbaums scene I saw as a kid)
>Everything Means Nothing to Me
>Between the Bars
…. Every song.
honestly when i was depressed for real i also felt numb so basically unable to enjoy stuff or feel good to music. it helps to listen to music in the long run but i cant listen for the feels when im depressed.
For me, often music that helps express the feeling makes me feel better. When I felt so depressed I was numb, I really liked Psychocandy by the Jesus and Mary Chain because it helped communicate that isolation and icy detachment (especially the songs "My Little Underground", "You Trip Me Up", "Something's Wrong", and "Never Understand")
>My borther and my sister...don't speak to me...but I don't blame them
I LITERALLY cried when I heard this track.
Holy shit. That connection was waaaay too deep.
>Ever told her where the fear comes from
>I never told her where the fear comes from
>I never told her where the fear comes from
>Today, he’s grinning as he tells me that that central lyric from I Never Learnt to Share is “meaningless”. He’s an only child, of course: “My brother and my sister don’t speak to me, but I don’t blame them, because they don’t exist. I think it’s one of those nice sentences that I really like, but I’m not really willing to explain it to anyone.”
seconding these mofos
Yes, also this. Xasthur makes some sad as fuck music and this is the saddest one of them all.
I can't tell if you have aspergers or if this is top quality bait.
The Beautiful Days is probably the saddest part of the album. It's like those beautiful days you always dreamed of now turned into nightmares. And they are going to hunt you.
will i ever really become her angel?
honestly, as someone who has had some serious depression in the past, they're on the right track. I don't even really listen to KPop/know anything about it but sometimes the best answer is something stupid simple and fun. I used to listen to Radiohead a lot more than I do now, still love them, but I almost ruined them to an extent because they were related to such bad memories
Sounds like you need your anger and depression cured.
That doesn't work with deep depression. The best stuff is stuff that you can relate to, that gets you through those emotions. If happy music is enough to distract you, you're probably empty
cmon /mu/ you know better than this
why listen to the bends when you can have some real feels?
>saddest album backstory ever
it sorta ramps up for me, the more depressed I am, the more disharmonious music I listen to. Back in June I had a nervous breakdown, and I could see that May had a steady incline of harsh music, started with stuff like Blood Brothers, by week 2-3 I stuck on Eyehategod and Code Orange Kids, by week 4 and the first week of June it was Orchid and Pg.99 and then then the 2 days before I was 51/50'd it was all harsh noise.
Overdosing to jason crumer is so bizarre. Reality bends to the sounds
>the best way to get out of depression is listening to happy music
you certainly don't become happier by listening to sad music
either get happy or get fukt. no one wants to be around your miserable ass
laugh and the world laughs with you; weep and you weep alone
Kayo Dot : Dowsing Anemone With Copper Tongue
Sounds like the best thing ever created when you're really depressed. It's like your only friend.
>and yes I still see El around
>it's different now, but I can't say how
>she cut her hair, it's back to brown
>she's living with her boyfriend now
The First Two Albums is great for feels, as well
Man this was like my high school freshman feels album. This and Hum's You'd Prefer an Astronaut
>and I need you, to give it meaning
>I need you to share the view
Seriously, no Shining in this thread? It may be entry level dsbm, but it's amazing when you feel like shit.
I knew Linkous committed suicide, but I had no idea how he did it: apparently he shot himself in the heart outside a friend's house.
Didn't Elliott Smith stab himself in the chest?
big el smith wasn't murdered man that's some conspiracy theory bullshit, he was depressed, suicidal, had tried to kill himself before, was coming down off everything he'd been addicted to and stabbed himself and that's all there is to it
Don't see this album mentioned that often, but it sure as hell is depressing.
>Stay inside my bed
>I have lived so many lives...
