>>53672132 this. plenty of other releases on Noble/Virgin Babylon Records that are easily just as good, if not better. both kashiwa and world's end girlfriend are like the Nujabes of glitchy/post-rock stuff
>>53672072 No. More people here seem to dislike this album than those who like it. I personally think it's great, and I really like his other albums as well. >>53672397 >plenty of other releases on Noble/Virgin Babylon Records that are easily just as good, if not better examples? I'm not looking to argue, just would like to hear something similar.
most of go-qualia particularly comes to mind. Vampilia/About Tess are great too, but the latter's bit more outright jam post-rock. kashiwa's also got Re: on Virgin Babylon, which i dig a fair bit more than Program Music. bunkai kei's another good label to peep for similar tunes
don't get me wrong, Program Music is good, but it's not an anomaly/exceptional release, except maybe in how it's just two pretty long tracks.
>>53672072 >>53672142 >>53672568 It's good, but it's not like real romantic era program music or anything. It's really just some nice prog rock. Prog rock has been pretty awful in general since the early 90s, so it's never bad to get a decent release out of the genre. Different story if you don't consider it prog rock, though.
>>53672243 >>53672404 That's a funny reference, but I don't think the music is bombastic enough to fit that claim. If anything I'd think that most popular US dubstep and "progressive house" music fits the bill. Really bright and polished but straightforward, formulaic, conceptually cheap, etc.
>>53672787 I've only heard Hurtbreak and Seven Idiots. I prefer Hurtbreak. I feel like the songs/pieces are more consistent across their lengths. Seven Idiots has many moments of just wondering why a track hasn't ended yet.
>>53672866 To me anyways it's nothing like post rock at all. The music direction is too focused on fast melodies and the tracks swing back and forth too much between saccharine chord progressions and rigid dissonance all while keeping the tempo at a striding pace. None of that seems like it was written to achieve the style that post rock goes for, nor does the end product really sound like that to me.
There are a lot of prog rock tropes in there too, especially with the piano and guitar performances. That's mainly what tips me off.
>>53672886 Vampillia's really dope man. I feel they definitely have the most "varied" combination of sounds.
>Really? I found re: to be kinda boring.
I can see that, but I feel like it being broken up into smaller songs helps a lot with the digestion of it. Might be because I'm an undisciplined twat, but the song lengths on Program Music kinda fuck with me. on top of thinking part two's the weaker half, i have trouble doing a full listen anymore.
>>53673173 ahhh alright. wasn't discrediting your statement. mostly asked just 'cause my knowledge of prog rock only goes as far as TWENTY FIRST CENTURY SCHIZOID MAN hehe. can definitely see what you mean about it being a little too off the wall to just be post-rock though
