>The song structures of Genesis, Yes, GY!BE
>The textural timbres and instruments of The Flower Kings, Animal Collective, MGMT
>The humour of Mr Bungle, Cardiacs, Crotchduster
>The English cultural references of Caravan, early Genesis and Pink Floyd (in a style similar to Sufjan Stevens)
>The optimistic outlook and vocal harmonies of Moon Safari and Klaatu
>early sleigh bells-esque noise pop
>sludgy thick basslines, frequent use of off-kilter wonky flylo style drums
>pixies-ish chord progressions
>bursts of offensive noise every now and then
I have a few
>Chiptune, but with a combination of actual synths and chips, and with the actual chiptunes leaning more towards old Japanese computer games instead of more fucking LSDj bullshit
>IDM structures with a lot of glitches and wonky things with the beat
>Cyberpunk atmosphere, so lots of 80's synths in the background a la Ghost In the Shell or Blade Runner
>As in, very much jazz but with a good beat going
>Throws in some elements to give it a darker atmosphere like gritty, nasty basslines, distorted vocals/instruments, etc
I want to make math rock that is so chaotic that it borders on free-jazz. I'm totally committed and have plenty of ideas but its something that you'd need to practice and jam out with a live band and tfw no band and obviously nobody is really into my stupid obscure bullshit
I play guitar and drums mainly, as well as bass (but not as good). I would also be able to produce the album. PM me through Facebook at /cashewmusic and we can exchange some stuff/, but I can't start recording until after Xmas.
I STICK MY PRICK IN THE PHONEBOOK
AND HUMP THE ENTIRE BAY AREAAAAA
>post-punk art rock
>dissonant yet focused melodies
>paranoid white-boy lyrics that never take themselves too seriously
>band sounds like its wound too tightly or something
Oh and I forgot
>Singer-songwriter type stuff with an outdoor mountain-type atmosphere like Mount Eerie
>Plays around with elements of background noise like the opener on Mount Eerie but also with minimalistic type shoegaze elements like Planning for Burial and changes in volume to make it sound like the singer is enveloped in a storm
I dunno this one isn't as clear but I feel like this would be really awesome if I did it right
I've always wanted to make long, droning tracks with gurgling synths like the song "I see you pan" off of AnCo's Holinndagain, but I'm so musically uninformed that I don't know where I would even start.
>Generation X cynicism
>apathetically mumbled lyrics
>emotionally charged post rock-ish or experimental rock outsider songs (and in some places, think early AnCo) tied together by separate ambient/electronic/noise tracks
>for example, noise/ambient/whatever type sounds start, then overdubbed instruments begin overtop of this ambient/noise/electronic/whatever segue between the tracks, forming the main cohesive song (similar to places on Loveless)
>all songs are connected like this
>has an unpolished feel to it due to my cluttered style of playing since I never really focused on improving my musical abilities since I was too distracted making music I wanted to while I was growing up. However I have very specific production on my songs, despite it maybe not sounding like it.
>due to my limited resources and lack of knowledge, this is recorded in a very lo-fi setup. I like this because it's easier to not have production that sounds like shit this way (I refuse to have a bad mix between unnaturally clean sounding midi instruments and obviously home recorded material which sounds bad most of the time). Right now I am just using portable recorders for every recording and layering the overdubs on top of them using only Reaper
>just to get off onto my feet just so that I have some sort of recorded output! the album I'm somewhat making now is more or less all taken from recorded improvisations; this is the starting points for the songs. I have more organized songs written already, but I'm too unorganized to focus on this right now and also would probably rather have these recorded in a professional setup
I love this
If you and >>52244486 do something I want in.
>pixies style chord progressions
Ur good my mane
But yeah my concerns with that were not making it sound cheesy and not making one element drown out the other. And of course not just making Mount Eerie But Different
can I just say, this is a really nice thread.
Not kidding, this might be a good thing if this AnCo album is the kind of thing you want to do. Having an outsider approach can create things that would never of been able to have come from any other person.
I literally might do that
Never actually listened to much Deerhoof. I listened to Microcastle but I feel like by the time I heard it I had already moved past that structure of songs. It sucks though because it's obviously really really good, I just don't get into it as much anymore, now I just do weird shit because I can't help but make masturbatory-like music out of necessity for my mental health.
>little anime girl vocals, like múm
>black metal shrieks
>operatic bass or baritone
>extensive use of samples, musical and non-musical
>keyboards and pianos
>sludgy bass lines and guitar playing
>synthetic and electronic drums mixed with normal drum playing
>heavily contrasting harsh and soft sections
>spoken word interludes
>tragic, political, satirical, or darkly humorous
>sometimes sung in other languages, because why the hell not
Holy nigger I meant Deerhunter. But yeah, Microcastle is a pretty good album. I prefer Halcyon Digest personally.
>now I just do weird shit because I can't help but make masturbatory-like music out of necessity for my mental health.
Post Soundcloud plox.
SO many different things I want to make.
Freak folk in the vein of sung tongs AnCo
Drawn out hazy psychedelic pop loops
Let me know if you're interested because I'm already trying to do these on my own.
Somebody finish the freak folk track with me. Please because it's pretty good because I don't know how to take it from here. Only a minute long
>the poppy, kinda oriental sound of Mick Karn's synth work in Japan and Dali's Car
>the fast paced harmonica of Suicide Blonde from INXS
>the slow and heavy guitar sound from Jesus and Mary Chan
>the lyrical wit of The Smiths
>use of exotic instruments from other countries
basically a clusterfuck when you think about it.
>Deep, complex concepts and storylines.
>Short melodic ideas used to represent characters, things or situations, e. g. leitmotifs.
>Transformation of themes where the music undergoes changes to mirror a situation.
>Creative use of instruments to evoke moods, places, images, ideas, etc.
>Maybe some sound effects and field recordings to help create the atmosphere.
Kinda like a tone poem with a rock structure.
If anyone knows an album or band that employs similar ideas, let me know.
Fuck I actually meant Deerhenter too phaha
Here's my soundcloud. Like I said the idea is that I'd overdub other instruments but I keep perpetually putting this off.
Check out the three most recent.
I'm kind of into droney stuff and Throbbing Gristle right now, though this stuff was recorded before I explored Throbbing Gristle again.

Fucko the Clown has been in like 5 "make a fictional band thread and post facts/history about them".
Some guy made a paragraph about how Fucko the clown went on a rampage after being possessed by Hitler or some shit and conquered half the world until he faced his inner demons.
