I can't stop listening to this album, /mu/
I just fucking love the odd, sad feeling the guitar playings giving me, kinda reminds me of old Modest Mouse or maybe more obviously, GBV
ALSO that moment when they finally come in hard during Echo, Bravo, goddamn
Can anyone recommend some similar feeling albums?
Please listen to this OP.
It's Duster with more loud/soft dynamic changes. Really really great album /mu/ rarely talks about. Great band in general.
If you like Duster you really should dig it
Yahoo questions gives some pretty legit suggestions sometimes tbh
Like five or six years ago I googled 'bands like Radiohead' or some shit and a Yahoo thread was just some guy ranting about how instead of listening to Radiohead the OP should listen to the people Radiohead namedrop/were influenced by and keep going like that
I found out about Duster from /mu/ recently and listened to their whole discog that day, bought Stratosphere and Contrmporary Movement the next day. Fuck are they great. I better check out Bedhead.
Coincidentally I'm obsessed with this album too, OP. Even today I was listening to this album but I got more than 1000 plays in lastfm and later I wanted to go beyond in this kind of music, I wanted something new, then I started listening to Helvetia. I understand you, OP.
Exactly. This is why I think everyone in this thread should listen to Helvetia. The band have the same "feel" and "essence" of Duster even if the tracks are more melodic and happy.
Check out everything eelse they've got. They had a bunch of small obscure EP type releases (off the top of my head, Christmas Dust and On The Dodge), two 7" singles, there are some live performances floating around (see On The Air), and there's also Rarities, which is an online bootleg of unreleased material. There's also the stuff they made as Valium Aggelein, which is also great. If you can get an account on whatcd there are some pretty good quality rare things you can get from them on there.
Some people like Contemporary Movement better but Stratosphere is definitely my favorite by far. 1975 is worth listening to, too.
Been listening to Transmission, Flux recent and I'm surprised how much this is like a full on release despite being just a 7" single.
You're that guy that liked those bands I listed, I meant to thank you before the thread 404'd.
I've listened to one Bedhead album before but I still need to do check them out some more sometime.
They also have a killer song on this compilation, which also has exclusive songs by Modest Mouse (song was only released on a single just last year), Dinogah, Grandaddy, David Pajo as Arial M, Songs: Ohia, Windsor For The Derby, plus a bunch of others.
Yep, they rock but I still think Duster is the better of the two.
