ITT: The best album you've discovered through /mu/
One of the biggest contenders.
I knew AnCo but i didn't dig into the solo works. This one is a gem though.
how've you been enjoying your time here? :)
what music do you like to listen to anon
as for me, pic related definitely
one of my all time favorite albums now
I've been thinking, could we post porn if we consider it an album cover?
It's not porn, it's art
and holy fuck am I glad I found Heccra here
I found out a lot of what I already liked was considered "/mu/-core" (Burial, flylo, Boris, Deafheaven, Mac DeMarco, etc.), so I don't feel too alienated. I'm also an obsessive Phish fan, but I'm used to everyone thinking they're awful so I stopped caring long ago.
Mainly listen to metal (Torche, Isis, Neurosis, pre-Watershed Opeth are particular favourites), but I grew up listening to a lot of ska (Streetlight Manifesto, Suicide Machines, Mad Caddies), prog (Flower Kings, Yes, Porcupine Tree, Dream Theater, Zappa) and 90s hip-hop (Gang Starr, Eric B and Rakim, Wu Tang), dated a girl in uni who got me into some indie/folk stuff that I didn't mind (Fleet Foxes, Wilco, DCFC), went through a bit of a jazz phase (Shorter/Weather Report, Return to Forever, Brubeck, Davis, Coltrane, BBNG) and have slowly started getting into more electronic stuff (Squarepusher, Pretty Lights, Blockhead, Bonobo).
Figured I could find some good suggestions for similar stuff here.
Thank you, /mew/. I'll be eternally grateful
thanks for getting me into hip hop /mu/
Thanks /mu/, youve made my winter a little less depressing :)
Thanks to the Lolicore fad of 2012, I found out about Goreshit who has become one of my favourite breakcore producers now. Still surprised he's unsigned, honestly. He's really matured since his lolicore releases too.
I heard the first song from this album a while ago, but only /mu/ brought me to give a proper listen to it in it´s full length.
Honorable mention is Filth from Swans.
I didn't know he'd moved on from lolicore, I loved his first recordings too, Semantic Compositions on Death and Dying is fucking awesome.
Get's talked about pretty often anon!
Anyone have an HQ link for this one at all?
He doesn't seem to be focusing much on the lolicore sound anymore (a bit of a shame as I love Ureshi!!, Tomboyish Love For Daughter, My Love Feels All Wrong and Blue Girl On Sunday) but I really dig his more melancholic works too. As you've said, Semantic Compositions On Death And Dying is definitely fucking awesome, man. Did you know he's put the releases on his bandcamp up for free now?
never would have heard about this masterpiece, I am in your debt /mu/
I discovered a guy with a dope flow and top tier taste in waifus thanks to you guys
I hope you managed to pick up one of the second pressings of the tape
I would have but I already have one of the first pressings and there were only 25 made again, so I didn't wanna hog another one
Spread the love, yaknow
> Did you know he's put the releases on his bandcamp up for free now?
No. Fucking hype.
I wasn't a huge fan of the lolicore, but My Love Feels All Wrong was indeed great.
Glad you like it anon.
Agreed, dude is fucking amazing.
I'm not really surprised he's not signed though. He's really good, but explaining to a label that lolicore is/was a thing and that you were a big part of it is whole other story.
He should try touring with some semi-big names, since he's already semi-big himself.
I knew Hounds of Love before faintly, but then I came upon this masterpiece.
Me too, man. Again, it seems like something Planet.mu would have on their roster.
He has moved on since lolicore now though and seems more focused on breakcore, breakbeat hardcore and whatever fits inbetween. I think he does already tour but I dunno if he tours or supports other acts. I could see him doing well on a Venetian Snares tour.
I was struggling because I just searched the artist name heh. For some reason I initially didn't think to also search a website that it could've been uploaded to.
It's pretty damn good. A truly eerie atmospheric listening experience. Like transcendental black metal done right. It'd be cool if the guy put out another album but I kinda doubt that'll happen.
You know that whenever Goreshit gets signed or blows the fuck up, that CD is going to be worth a lot. Each print had unique artwork too. Sounds so fucking cool, not surprised it sold out so quickly.
He's not even that good. There's hundreds of mixtapes that sounds exactly like that. If you like it, that's fine, but don't be mistaken into thinking that he's different from any other bedroom producer rapper.
Well I guess I'd rather he took his time with it and we got an amazing 30 minutes out of it rather than him spending a few days churning out hours or rubbish. As long as we get something from him, I can wait. I bet it'll be damn good.
don't remember when but got this off /mu/ in a sharethread while going through depression and i really enjoyed it. thank you anon who uploaded it.
Probably the greatest album ever. Especially since it's so obscure, yet so well produced.
Afrodisiac by The Veldt is the best album I would've discovered if I hadn't gone to /mu/
I have entirely you folks to thank for getting me into breakcore in general. Much obliged.
The Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower is pretty jazz-punky. They're just not fronted by a cute Asian woman so this may affect your enjoyment of it.
Mutyumu's second album features the pianist from Midori.
Still a sigure virgin? by Rin Toshite Shigure has lots of whacky crazy pianos.
Shinsei Kamattechan are often compared to them (unrightfully).
Wakusei Abnormal are often compared to them.
Shiina Ringo has similar vocal delivery to Mariko Gotoh imo
You can also listen to the rest of Midori's discography if you haven't.
>OGRE YOU ASSHOLE is a good Japanese jazz-punk band
They're literally the Japanese Modest Mouse you goof.
Thanks for all the recs, I'm gonna check these out. I'm a Midori fanboy who managed to snag up all the vinyl editions of the albums.
If you haven't heard 385, check them out. But given that your taste seems pretty prolifically Japanese, you probably have heard them.
I thought the follow up was A LOT better.
Still bummed should have been cut to 5 tracks.
I think they're still the best emo band your gonna find still actively making music. The fact that they are a bunch of stoners in a garage in Arkansas is quite remarkable.
MHTRTC is probably the best I've listened to thanks to /mew/ but Midori is probably up there. Loveless as well, probably. I didn't like it first time but given how often it's praised on /mu/ I figured I should relisten and well...
Pic related too.
>"Back when Odd Future was just a twinkling in Tyler's eye"
In the beginnings of the hip-hop group Odd Future, when Tyler was first releasing songs
>"I got turned on to them on here."
Some faggot posted them on /mu/
>"Fuck you /mu/"
Here, he proposes his disdain for /mu/ introducing him to Odd Future.
Have you heard any of their earlier works?
Yeah, they migh not appeal to your accessible pleb tastes, but Ween has MUCH better album than The Mollusk.
>pic related, my LP collection
this. everything else that gets posted here i either already knew, or turned out to be shit. prime examples for the latter: >>51641213 or >>51642411
You should try Quebec too. I think its on par with The Mollusk, if not better.
