ITT: Albums you absolutely love that you've never seen mentioned on /mu/
My favorite album. Only ever seen it mentioned when I post it
Flotation Toy Warning - Bluffer's Guide to The Flight Deck
Not sure if I'm blind, but I've never seen the frogs mentioned.
I don't care if it's kind of a bowie rip-off, it's one of the best damn things i've ever heard. same with the rest of their albums
The Necks probably got more well-known since they toured with Swans. Still, if you haven't listened to them and you like minimalism, jazz and/or ambient, you should give them a try.
It is mentioned from time to time, but people usually dislike it. Last time it was along the lines of "people on RYM love it, that shows how much RYM sucks".
guess you haven't been here very long then
Damn. Honestly, I feel like if this entire board somehow listened to this album, it'd be /mu/core.
Best: Midget Submarine
Runner-Up: Don't Throw Ashtrays At Me!
I've only ever gotten mixed reactions when it comes to Yuck. I know they sorta sounded lost after Daniel left the band and that Glow And Behold left tons to be desired, but their latest release from last year rules pretty hard. Never saw it mentioned on /mu/. It's an EP, though.
Songs For Drella, arguably Lou Reed and John Cale's magnum opus
dope body - natural history
>noisy post punk
talked about a bit when it was released, but not nearly enough.
This album/band would totally be a /mu/ hit if people listened to it.
They love that post-rock
The general feel is like the Looney Tunes tried to be a Melvins and Slayer cover band, Great stuff.
Love that album.
Love Dope Body.
They're wonderful live.
don't know what the consensus is on this album, but it's fucking great imo
yeah, i could see that. haven't had the opportunity to :(
Jozef Van Wissem & Jim Jarmusch - The Mystery of Heaven
>folk / psychedelic / ambient / drone
One of the greatest vocalists in the history of indie rock. High-tier jangle/powerpop, fun catchy stuff - but when Jeff Lescher really howls, it's almost spiritual for me. I saw this album posted once in a share thread, copped it, and have never seen a word spoken about them since.
well! hopefully they'll go to wherever ya live soon.
I live in Baltimore, so I have the chance to see them super frequently.
also yr link is broken. should be this:
ive posted this in these threads a couple of times
fuckin brilliant album
any boards of canada fan should check this album out
I've only seen Type O posted a handful of times throughout the years.
pretty much the whole prodigy discography
but most of all this. i can understand why /mu/ doesnt really talk about it though, none of you seem really rave-y.
Jane From Occupied Europe is better
Nobody cares about Kingston Wall
maybe that's why he killed himself
Bought it for £3 because I liked the cover, the music is ace.
Incubus in general. I know it's extra pleb, but for such a popular band, it's suprising they aren't mentioned much.
it's a shame most people know him from that hallelujah cover...
Actually, I find vocal jazz in general is barely mentioned here.
It's quite big in Ireland, but I've never seen the album mentioned on here.
I can't be the only one who loves this album. I feel like if people really looked closer at it, they would really enjoy it. People always go on about Confusion is Sex, Sister, or DDN, but no one really talks about this, which I would argue is as good as any of them.
Yeah, I love it. I'm genuinely surprised they don't get much love around here, especially since they were hand-picked by Gira (who is quite literally worshipped on this board). I'll admit New Weird America was a huge turning point in my musical education, took me from Eric Clapton to whatever /mu/core was fawned over in those days... but I still come back to this album for inspiration.
I've mentioned this in 'unpopular opinions' threads because I know its a very idiosyncratic opinion to have... but I thoroughly believe that Ryan Vanderhoof leaving Akron/Family in 2007 to become a fucking monk (or whatever) was one of the greatest losses in indie music in the last 10 years. I haven't heard a voice sound as desperate on record as his.
Not as good as Purim's Shadows or Mary's Voice. Freeing Song for Reindeer is fantastic though.
