Dev will be here to hang out untl 11pm EST.
Get in here /dev/ bros
First question, do you consume dairy?
THOSE FUCKING QUADS THO
I don't consume much dairy outside of pizza. I hate most dairy products but i'm not vegan.
Feels guy smoking cigarettes while Pepe plays trumpet
I don't know exactly what you mean.
Never. Not really interested either. I had an ex-girlfriend who was super into them so they remind me of her and we had a really intense break up.
I never met Diplo ever. Sky is good friends with him though.
A few times. Last time I shit my pants was at a Bleached show in Texas. That really fucking sucked. The whole time in the car, I kept joking "I'm gonna shit my pants!" because it kept making Colby and Cole crack the fuck up for some reason. I actually ended up shitting my pants somehow.
That's not what happened. Long story short, they partied at my house once. I asked Panda Bear to play my birthday party, he said hell no. I chilled with Avey a various number of times and he invited the band out to a fancy dinner when we were in Chicago but no one showed but me.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Boobs but both are almost equally good. Boobs if I had to choose one.
I one time stayed over a girl's house and accidentally pissed the bed. She woke up to me kind of cleaning it up but was completely oblivious to it and super horny so we ended up fucking in the puddle of piss. Disgusting but probably the best sex I've actually ever had.
I mean like trying to set up group shows with bands. Say theres a band in your area you wanna play with at joint gigs. How would you go about asking them? Is there a sort of etiquette you believe is important?
i was just lurking until you said something about our culture being dead.
Kay you're still Mexican enough though.
Foliage i love your ep i wish i was as good of a musician as you are.
I don't know. I guess just ask them, though the chances of them saying yes are probably slim. Make it enticing.
Didn't feel like we were on TV at all.
Stop shitposting on an image board for chinese cartoons and start working on music.
Why are you meeting up with me?
Probably not. No one likes the guy with no money all the time and acts like a downer, especially if you look like crap too to top it all off.
So we were playing this outdoor backyard SXSW type thing where all the "cool" kids were at. It was like us, Part Time, Bleached, some other bands. We got there early and watched some bands and drank beers. I was standing there and I guess I sharted really fucking hard. I checked it out in the port-a-potty and there was just mud all up in my undies and running down my pant leg. There was a bathroom in the house but no light in it so I ended up washing my pants and undies, naked from the waist down, in a cold ass sink in pitch black darkness. What a fucking time.
This was the first time I met Jennifer Clavin too mind you.
I responded to you in the other thread. but yeah what's worse is the fact that we are looked down upon by a lot of other races. But props to Alan Palamo for actually making it (even if mildly big) here in the states and i think he was born in Mexico.
Yeah Mexican enough, although I SHOULD get into my roots. I know NOTHING of my heritage. My family is very white. Although my dad speaks Spanish pretty well. My dad's parents are hella mexican though, very brown skin and I can't understand a word his mom says. I'm the pale baby of the family (and only one with colored eyes and light brown hair)
Ah thanks man, I personally don't like it. Really lo-fi and repetitive. The album will be much better.
man all these trips that think people are reading their posts and dont have them filtered
I guess not.
Nothing comes to mind right now but I guess mostly because I burnt my brains on all that shit. This one time I did ayahuasca and saw Grey aliens running about in my house at the time. They were all up in the walls and in the table. One of them was inside my stomach too. Shit was weird.
The blue pack of American Spirit.
>I don't know. I guess just ask them, though the chances of them saying yes are probably slim. Make it enticing.
Thanks man. My question is probably a vague one. I just paranoid about fucking up relationships with bands. I remember playing an awesome group show once and I told the guy who set it up(his band played and he pocketed all the proceeds) that we should do more. The guy got pissy and accused me of just wanting to do more group shows so my band could play. It wasnt even like that. I just liked the idea of having a group "scene" and everyone playing together. I mean I provided some equipment too so its not like I was scrounging. The fucker took all the profits as well. We ended up falling out over that. His band is over too.
Random story but yeah I just wanted to see if you had any tips for how to go about setting up group gigs.
I guess I just have to get good and show them my "credentials" in terms of music and gig experience I guess.
Are most bands/artists you see/deal with polite and friendly? Whats the ratio of douche bags to nice dudes?
Yeah. That's why I frequently attempt to minimize that fucked-up-ness by committing un-speakable acts. I told a crack-whore to shit in my open mouth, bought a dog just so I could fuck it (i was very gentle), cut off blood circulation from my nuts, shoved a gardening shovel up my bum-bum. the list goes on and on.... :^)
Record that catchy melody that comes into your head. Go off of that and build around it. Bassline is VERY important. You can't hear the basslines in the Singles, too lo-fi.
I'm about half or more than half white buddy. Very pale, green eyes, light brown hair.
I just make very sad, depressing, slow music. I try to make music that is catchy but i hate the way the end result sounds to me. Plus i'm shit in guitar, bass, and keys. but thanks for the advice. I'll try not to over think musically.
>No one likes the guy with no money all the time and acts like a downer, especially if you look like crap too to top it all off.
so just change everything about myself and I'll have a chance thanks for the tip Dev.
It's alright if you like noise on top of your Paramore.
Oh man. My sides have left the building. I'm so sorry anon. He asked a question and I try to answer them all as honestly as possible.
Either/or. They will definitely listen to it and get back to you if they like it.
It was a joke, Chad.
Wow, that guy sounds like a fucking ASSHOLE. The ratio of douche to cool guy is 1:4
Not everyone is very friendly but most DIY acts are so you shouldn't have a problem around here
Tell her you know me or something, I don't know.
I don't fug dudes though but I'll give you the record
Never met them. Always wanted to see them live. Do they have beef with Iceage?
They're alright. BJ, the drummer, is the fucking man. Party animal. Jupiter, Alice's boyfriend, is a total fucktard and I have no idea what she sees in him.
Not at all. Guarantee none of those dudes are making money except for the chillwave guys who already jumped the boat to greater things at the right time like Neon Indian and Washed Out.
Dude, relax. It was the last time I shit my pants and it was in 2011. Someone asked the question, I answered honestly. Maybe I should just stop doing this. I don't think you guys are mature enough.
whats your most expensive yu-gi-oh! card?
>Wow, that guy sounds like a fucking ASSHOLE. The ratio of douche to cool guy is 1:4
>Not everyone is very friendly but most DIY acts are so you shouldn't have a problem around here
Thats nice. Ive met cool people. I always overthink and I hate people who just take take take but yeah that guy was an asshole.
I just dont wanna risk pushing a bands buttons or getting flogged off. But I guess everything's a risk. Its never always gonna work out perfectly.
Nice to see there are more nice dudes. Ive seen a lot of friendly musicians around. Its just a scene id love to be apart of.
>Dude, relax. It was the last time I shit my pants and it was in 2011. Someone asked the question, I answered honestly. Maybe I should just stop doing this. I don't think you guys are mature enough.
Just realizing that? But really, it was a joke. Maybe it's you that needs to relax, fucker
>Maybe I should just stop doing this.
Nah please keep doing it the way you do. I was feeling empathy with you >>51536642, just ignore the edgy try-hards. Your brutal honesty is what makes these threads.
That sounds sad but it's true. Do you at least think that those genres help progress music forward? Neon Indian > Washed Out. I think Saint Pepsi also is mildly successful and he was a pretty known vaporwave artist before he got signed. (not part of the question, sorry)
Hey man couple questions
What is your favorite brand of amps?
Is there any shit you take on tour that is a necessity?
Who was the funnest musician that you have performed with?
How hard is it to break into the music industry?
The trips are relentless. Obviously that guy uses it so you can distinguish him but some dudes dont even need them and they keep on talking and answering peoples questions, treating it like this is their AMA and almost derailing the threads. Are they so desperate for attention?
We are here for Devin.
How old were you when you started to "achieve gratification" if you know what I mean....I was 5, noticed my cock getting hard one night so I gave it some attention, if you know what I mean...
He was probably exaggerating about him being so awesome, he seems the most okay member in pictures, but the rest do seem like privileged hipsters
Now if they asked me to be the drummer of their band I wouldn't think twice: money, beer, groupies, etc., who wouldn't
>Do they have beef with Iceage?
As far as I know they've never even met each other, the guys from Holograms are apparently just pissed because both them and Iceage started attracting international attention at the same time, only Iceage ended up being a lot more successful.
And how much influence does Captured Tracks let their artists have in terms of how the artists present themselves(as far as image, artwork, videos etc. goes)? Because the video for Holograms' Fever is a huge contrast with the band's actual music, what with them being a Swedish band playing post-punk and the video taking from that whole Wavves/Best Coast "US beach slacker" aesthetic.
I asked him if he had heard them last week, did he ever get around to listening to what they've put out?
Devin What is your opinion on cassette tapes?
This shit is getting out of hand. I can't for the life of me understand why all these trend jumping little hipster wannabees are obsessing over cassette tapes. The only advantages they ever had was convenience in portability. That technology has been outdated for 20 yrs now. What the hell?
Hey dev. If I send you pic related in the mail will you get my band signed to captured tracks?
Is Alice about to suck off Jupiter here?
Why does she look like a drag queen now?
Does this look like a fucktard to you?
Protip: Yeah, it should
>using "but its a demo!" as an excuse
you've had plenty of time to mix your work, it's been almost a year i'm guessing now since your stuff was released and i bet all your work still sounds like trash. your demos gave a shit first impression, and the way you spammed it on mu (before spamming it on mu was a meme) made you sound even more shitty.
if you're gonna release trashy demos, don't spam them. at least spam work you'd be proud of
I agree. Generic bland shit at its finest. I was talking to girls at a Mac show the other week & told them I went to Beach Goth but didn't see The Growlers cause I said I didn't like em and I got the meanest mug from like 4 girls around me lel. But I wanna know why dev doesn't like em
Not entirely. You just have to be good vibes and you'll get along just fine.
A little full of shit? How?
Pot Of Duality
Nope, not yet :^)
Exactly. All those people who are "super depressed" are only like that behind closed doors mostly.
Hell yeah except for Cole. He smokes only sometimes.
Not really but it's OC so there's nothing wrong with that.
1. Ampeg Tube SVT Pro. Gotta always make sure there's one stocked in the backline before we sign the contract. Orange is okay too.
2. Nothing really except my 3DS and laptop.
3. Tie between UMO and Bleached. Those bands know how to party. Weezer is up there too.
4. HARD AS FUCK. We never thought we were going to make it, trust me.
Wait is John the tall asian looking dude? He's the mongoloid, my bad.
I like larger shows, less pressure when you're up there surprisingly. Best match for Male Gemini is Female Aquarius.
I don't even remember who and what turned him onto the stuff or when it started happening honestly.
Nah, that dude can party and is just generally a good vibe. I remember playing pool and pounding shots with him in Mexico while he was telling all these crazy stories. Good fucking times.
Never saw that video but I'll watch it when I get home. It's not like CT made the video, it's probably their fault.
I would love that so much but I don't have the power to get you signed to CT ;_;
Mourn is tight. Cassette tapes are whatever. Everyone has a damn tape label these days. Waste of money.
Because they suck? I really do not like their music at all.
The Hitchhiker comes to mind off the top of my head but the best one is the one where those little astronaut people are plaguing this woman from this UFO in her shed.
>cheap and easy to produce
>tape only releases
>a lot of people still have cars that only play tape
i dont know why you care about what people purchase with their money, just live your life bro
you guys are retarded. The Growlers last couple albums fucking suck, yeah. They blew up and got super famous in 2012 and stopped making great music, but listen to "Greatest Shits" or "Are You In Or Out"
They used to be seriously one of the best bands ever. They took a HUUUUGEEE nosedive in the last couple years.
but anon, the Lunar Eskimo incident is very similar to mine. I posted in BC threads, where 'Singles' received a lot of praise, then it got spammed.
Yeah, i'll stop posting as well. Sorry Devin.
My bad, that guy is actually kind of chill. John is the lankier asian looking dude? That guy fucking sucks.
Never tell QTs that you hate The Growlers. Just say they're whatever because they are the definition of whatever.
Nah, go fuck yourself and learn to type in English properly while you're at it, scrub.
I could care less.
.... yeah, a cheap portable mixtape... it's called making a playlist on your phone.
nice try schlomo
digital is essentially free
have a bandcamp, you actually net more from it and can get more exposure
Do you believe that location can help with musical success? I live in a city that doesn't really have any major music scene, and I was thinking of moving to a different city in the future.
>Nah, go fuck yourself and learn to type in English properly while you're at it, scrub.
Filters are an important part of /mu/, it allows one to have a better experience by removing what they deem shit posting.
can you give your phone to a friend? i've never heard of anyone emailing a mixtape to people ever. Plus when you're playing a show and you're on a low budget a $0.50 tape at $8 yields $7.50 profit and if you sell a good 5 or 10 you get $37-75 in one show. And people do buy tapes and it is relatively cheaper than buying a cd plus pirating is harder when it takes effort trying to upload a cassette online.
what do you think about my beloved country Guatemala?
