hm..ive actually been wanting to listen to that comp some time
ill see whether and how im gonna re-enter you
do you have rym or something? just curious
Reposting cause meme flood.
Listened to Daughter's new album. I remember discovering them a few years ago when crescendocore and dream pop were my favorite genres.
They've got this cliche alternative sound but Elena's voice makes it more interesting. The album has some really creative production, too bad that the songwriting relies on the formula of writing a hook based on some basic chords. If only they could use some jazz influences or made more interesting structures, this would be a really great album. Oh, and the lyrics are pretty tumblr-core.
I tried to listen to OG Maco's new mixtape. I tried to. I couldn't make it 'till the end so I ended up after 2 tracks. The production is good but the monotonous vocal delivery and the cheap synths make this record awful. It's quite uninspired.
Also finally listened (twice) to Krallice's new EP. It's brilliant! And I think it's time for me to revisit some of their albums because their sound has grown on me. The drum work is astonishing and the precise playing is really enjoyable. Atmospheric, dark, ending with some swirly synths. A very strong release.
Does someone have an idea for filling up the chart?
>Hella - Hold Your Horse Is
It's math rock that occasionally gets a bit noise rock-ish. There's not really much to it, I'm not a big fan of math rock so it's not really for me. Intro track is kinda shit.
What's next? Preferably something short
Phew, I thought I was going to lose first round. There's no restrictions for what I can put as my next album, right?
here's a good one for shoegaze
>Dinosaur Jr - Bug
Well that was pretty disappointing. Everything except for the last track felt like indie rock filler. Some of it wasn't so bad though. Last track is the only track worth listening to more than once.
here's a guide to good music
young buck - buck the world, recommended by dogwander
if not memorable, it is all you would expect: a consistent, all-around alright, serviceable black ambient record, dunno what there would even be to say. a lil much too dry maybe, whatever that means. the singer from linkin park was featured
vert - small pieces loosely joined, recommended by ricebeansandegg
this in a way exceeded my low expecations. unimpressive piano playing, unimpressive tunes, wimpy synths, though it did grow on me a couple as it went on, i got that its trying to draw you in with and to subtle details, the way something like onkyo works, and THEN come in with the closer's relatively loud contrast. i kinda liked the extended ending ambient loop aswell. but it wasnt that great
rice wins, i guess
Almost done with 808 State.
State To State
808 State makes Big beat.
It was only released to the fan club for a good reason, I'd say.
808 State makes leftfield house.
It works a lot better than expected.
Perhaps at this point they were getting tired of the Future Sounds of the Orb going furether than they have and americans going back to the grit of their Chicago roots while the european scene was spinning out of control with raveculture becoming always bigger, louder and obnoxious. Hence Don solaris.
Simply put, this is Shpongle before Shpongle. 808 State builds over the base they are familiar with once again but this time trade the continuity of live-inspired house music to follow a different type of segmentation and focus on creating a stream of moments instead of a continuous flow. the album constantly changes its tones and colours while managing to keep a continuity thanks to a certain unity in the technical aspects that make the variety of samples fit together through their format (with the exception of Lopez which I'm pretty convinced was only there to make sure some singles would sell).
Remember how Don Solaris was all about pushing the frame of 808s' house music and encompassing always more sounds and influences? This thing right here has everything you need to satisfy your remix needs, and it goes the opposite way. Based, for the most part, on the singles of the Don Solaris era, it follows the opposite route and goes from several forms of electronic music and incorporates the textures of Don Solaris into these specific patterns and formulas, at least for the parts provided by 808s themselves going back to classic house (with the opening Joyrider remix or the ver north-american Balboa) ,or other things, curtesy of several guests that will range from drum and bass to, well, whatever it is that Brian Eno did redoing Lopez.
Well, that was odd. This is the album no one rememberss and it's not hrd to see why as it has little to do with what the band might have gotten us used to. even if the production style and methrs have varied as well as the sources, 808 has always kept a certain rythmic focus and aestheti i ntheir sound. This is the part where they do something completely different. at this point we are closer to psychedelic electronics as psytrance will show a couple years later. The idea of movement now exists on a longer scale and momentum is stretched along tracks themselves and across the album as well. The composition is much less direct than it used to be and the result is a somewhat blurry ensemble with some fairly high points and some terrible lows (starting with the opener itself). Overall this album has its share of surprises but is vastly unequal in quality and attention, which is a shame as some of the more far-reaching moments and atmosphere buildups show some great promises that are never completely fulfilled.
isn't it my turn to rec an album for the listenalong?
René Lussier - Le trésor de la langue
if it isn't just ignore this album
>a consistent, all-around alright, serviceable black ambient record
"its a noise album made with voice"
there, next time youll find yourself enjoying it
though tbqh, ive started to feel as you do upon revisit, even if i was floored when i first heard it. happens
i guess, maybe not
or hey why not do it like: im keeping the first round open, if someone has something that looks appetizing enough, another participant is gonna be kicked :^)
C-could it be? An enjoyable Stereolab album that isn't Noise Bursts?
(seriously though, I'm still pretty puzzled as to why this band is held in such high regard by critics)
hol up maybe ill think of sum more
thanks for linking to the charts i needed. hyped to find out what cave voice is.
>up against dolphins into the future
why do you give me these oscure, oceanic hurts?
>tfw you miss the meems
You've been bamboozled by Sofa and Nilgog. R.I.P.
>Container - LP
27 minutes of volatile dance music that is ready to explode by just shy of becoming undone. Grab this for a chaotic, slightly noisy, but stripped down stripped experience, not as solid as "Adhesive" but still good.
lern2master u skrebs.
but yeah, one of the better Stereolab albums.
Today's new listen was
>God - Possession
Holy shit this jams like Smuckers and screams like the female lead of a 1970s B-horror movie.
An avalanche of sound and fury.
A brutal monolith.
Legit didn't hear anything this phenomenal for the entirety of 2015. Here's to a new year of music listening. Thanks for ushering it in, God.
>AFX - Smojphace EP
First track was a drill n bass raggacore jamz, acording to them cool tags in the web. After that, we have Richard David James attempting noise. I liked it a lot.
I have that in my backlog somewhere. Getting excited
Listening to The Perfect Pescription, rec'd for the tourney by Are You Insanity
this is going to be good
Also Thomas I need an entry from you because you won
>Brian S. Cassidy - Alpine Seas
you know those god awful songs that play durring car commercials with xylophones and clapping and some white indie fuckboys chanting in the background? basically this album is a collection of the lead ins to those songs, with just the solo guitar and voice, before it gets really shitty.
maybe add in a splash of Songs: Ohia as well idk.
what this album lacks in variety it makes up for in sincerity. it felt like an actual human being was singing this to me. the production was also excelent, though that did take away from some of the rawness i normally like in folk.
i'm shocked how much i didn't hate this record.
listen to it here: https://briancassidymusic.bandcamp.com/releases
And thus, the "hidden gem" is born.
I remember when everyone was memeing Exuma in /mu/ a while back like it was some forgotten masterpiece.
I mean, if you think not enough people listen to it, mention it more I guess. Maybe it'll be the next shitty /mu/core flavor of the month.
>Hella- Hold Your Horse Is
100% worthless. 0/10
>Eyehategod- In The Name of Suffering
I liked this well enough, I think, although it felt sort of clumsy and got real monotonous towards the end. This kind of thing can be and has been done better.
>Merzbow- Hybrid Noisebloom
This was a lot of fun. Lots of colours and sounds and stuff going off all over the place. Genuinely psychedelic.
i am too lazy to write proper reviews but whatever
happy new year
The big fet Goose Egg
give it another shot in a year or so, worked for me
We just can't please everyone
Also I'm not really feeling this Spiritualized so far and first my plane is about to take off, will do Abacus too but fear the worst after the other two emo albums
Last things about 808 State and then I swear I'll sto talking about music nobody gives a shit about.
State To State II
More unreleased tracks, this time from all sorts of live sessions and radio interventions apparently.
Nothing too special here,just your usual bunch of loud remixes, nothing you wouldn't find in the two bucks create of a record store.
A bunch of tracks that didn't make the cut to Newbuild.
And it shows.
An interesting listenin retrospect, but once again,it's nothing really exceptionnal.
all things considered, I don't think anyone gives a shit about the following either.
1024mb - Gigabyte
A concept album about being inside a computer by youtube-dwelling musician Leslie Wai.
If I remember correctly and am not getting mixed up with other things, this thing was propelled to its minute of e-fame thanks to an 8-bit style video that got some coverage on a couple blogs. The song "The Glitch", sounded fun at the time so I grabbed the whole thing.
And I must say, after going through 808 State, god damn does this thing sound clunky.
The main issue here is how little moderation there is in composition and mixing. we are dealing with your average electro-house style music that tries to induce some spectacular movements thanks to loud layers of synths over loud layers of synths, all of this backed by your mandatory theatic 8 to 16 bits basslines and whe I suspect is for the mot part a beat played on an electronic drumset. the formula is simple and not necessarly flawed but the execution is not exactly tasteful as most of the track overload themselves by being too segmented to have more movement and keep the listened busy at all times, and by having simply too much going on without any reason or contributing to any effect. the overall loudness does not help at all and makes most of the rythmic lines and backings feel very flat if not plain weak compared to the global crushing force of the rest of the digital instrumentation.
Not the best thing ever, pretty much what you would expect from something released exclusively on youtube...
don't think it's possible for steven r smith to make a bad album
what to listen to next??
do arrived in gold next
How has your day been daily? I was at the theater and saw Bergman's Fanny & Alexander. It was great, enjoyed it a lot more than when I saw the film.
>Robert Wyatt - Rock Bottom
Really enjoyed this one. Brittish prog rock that doesn't sound anything like the other anglo prog of the mid 70's. The second half was really something else though, where Alifie sounds like something that could have been on a C93 record, Wyatt even sounds like Tibet vocally, intimidating stuff.
It did feel quite short though and I was a bit surprised when it just ended. It felt like there was even more room to explore and it didn't end up feeling as grandiose as I had assumed it would be. It felt like it was a missing a finale somehow.
Great record though, I can definitely see why it's so acclaimed.
René Lussier - Le trésor de la langue
>Avant-Prog, Sound Collage, Spoken Word
download here >>61434679
Quite pleased with this one's dynamic range. Definitely not the kind of fuddy duddy dream pop where the band cowers behind the smudges of effects and does nothing. This employs atmosphere in a smart and engaging way, shifting and ever moving and staying fresh, with equal parts large-scale wallop and glossy dreaminess. 6/10
Spacemen - The Perfect Prescription
entered by Are You Insanity
Nice, started really strong, made me feel floaty, gradually got smoother
Intended apparently to be a concept album about getting high, but I don't know if the music matches what they are trying to achive
how do I tie break
D20 roll it is the
1-10 = Are You Insanity

>Has to be <2 hours

I wanna make it more interesting but I can't think of anything cool
make way sluts, i've been kill for long, but i'm back-ish! new and improved!
lately i've been working on a website where i'm gonna keep track of all my ratings and stuff, mainly cause im anal af as fuck and it helps me stay organized... check it out m8s
r8 me h8 me ber8 me
oh and the "reviews" page is for something different i guess. i'm starting to paste my actual reviews right onto the page; you can see them if you hover over the album, but i've only done it for some albums in march so far.
exam week starts monday and I have a project to send till tomorrow
I wish I could see autopsies with you losers
I could wait, but if the leak was good enough it would make the painful task of reading thousands of words trying to find errors much more enjoyable
im still gonna listen to it, ykno. there might be a losers bracket. and you can still gimme something else and reclaim your spot
essentially all my trickery should serve to get me more recommendations for muh upcoming rym list
btw avant kicks relgob with songs about my bussy
still dont know how i feel about this preemptive judgement meme in general
i was just memeing the fact that ppl dont know the 21st century started with 2001 but alright, coulda worded it so that would come through more clearly
after dinner - souvenir cassette
atilla csihar is so amazing. I wish there were more vocalists in metal like him.
oh my bad man
I got my <s and >s all mixed up
this one then
>why not RYM
i suppose i could transfer my comments onto rym, but i like being able to create and fully customize charts as i've done on the site. i've tried to do it with topsters but it always freaks out on me so i just dont bother anymore
>21st century started with 2001
>mfw i hadn't ever realized that
um i have a friend who goes on /mu/ who loves this guy, if you are him im gonna shit myself lol
haven't spoken to that guy in ages...
all the spots have been taken, I'll start it up tomorrow
Half of these albums look like memes tho
i'm impressed. this is one of the best things sunn has ever done. it's complex enough to not totally entrance you like the grimmrobe demos, features some vocals by atilla at the top of his game, and it doesn't overstay it's welcome even slightly. highly recommended.
Hooooooooooly fuck that Abacus thing was bad. I am never ever ever ever ever going to listen to it again.
1-2/10 (I don't dare give things a 1 but this is such a serious contender holy fuck) also Detroit airport wifi sucks ass
damn, last january's chart was really good. i should do something like this again.
also, strangers from the universe got bolded on RYM! which means ive lost all my cred cos all my top 5 are bolded, but whatever.
YOU'RE NOT LISTENING I SAID STOOOOOOP
i get where you're coming from, even though i dig the instrumentation. the vocalist is just fucking awful.
my last january kind of sucked. there's only a couple on here i'd even care to revisit.
the EP one I did ruled though, lightning bolt and rema rema I still enjoy
My Clang Quartet CD's came in. Christian-inspired harsh noise artist. Hopefully I can upload them this weekend so anyone interested can give it a listen.
I never finished my last january ;_;
only heard juju
i thought of a new rule though: new and accepted participants kick a contender chosen at random, not one i decide on at will, of the yet-to-be-fought battles
so basically, you and relgob would not be out yet
that might be fun, but itll probably stay the way it is. then again i also enjoy making this tricky. will decide before tomorrows first battle
>mailbox meme for squarepusher
ive never listened to a (jimi) hendrix album fsr
>i'd say Nixon is worth a re-listen
will do, I actually bought the CD a few weeks back, but still haven't listened to it since
I'll wait until tomorrow, I noticed I heard too little underrated music
>>mailbox meme for squarepusher
idk desu, my rating system was never good, but it was exceptionally nonsensical that month
I remember liking it tho
Hmm, can't remember anything about that Hendrix album
Takács Quartet performing Béla Bartók - The 6 String Quartets (1997)
>modern classical, chamber music
Just fucking revelatory. Aggressive, performed /incredibly/ well, anxious, tense, dark, powerful, melodic, dissonant, avant-garde, so many adjectives to describe this thing. I have to give specific praise to the start-stop dynamic of the pieces, and the pizzicato sections, but the whole thing is just consistently spectacular. The shortest 150 minutes of my life.
First 4 of 2016 and we're only 2 days in!
you should give expensive shit another listen. it reveals its grooviness and funkiness over time. its short as hell as well.
>rema rema I still enjoy
that's a fucking great ep! glad to see more people enjoy it.
jimmie rodgers and agalloch are cool.
Got caught off guard by life and didn't listen to anything. Did have a couple of minutes to release new music though, so that was nice. About to start with Tony Conrad and Faust.
Doctor Came At Dawn felt too melodramatic for me. Julius Caesar is what I wanted Daniel Johnston to be, lo-fi shitty songs that are sung with a ton of emotion
Strawberry Rash and Stick In The Mud just make me feel stuff
they probably all are
Have you heard any other of his albums? Feels like the kind of stuff you'd dig
For those who want more good music from Québec : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3kocnM1UEww
I might have to relisten to it. Your Wedding is a great song.
I have When I said I wanted to be your dog and night falls over kortedala, they're excellent. i'm really hype on tomorrow
I don't care for the darker songs that much but I can see why you enjoyed that one if your a fan of The Doctor Came At Dawn. It's kind of similar to You Moved In.
You might like Knock Knock though!
Night Falls Over Kortedala is pretty good but I feel like there's something off about it. Can't quite say what though. I'd recommend Oh You're So Silent Jens, it's a pretty mixed bag of songs but you're guaranteed to like atleast some of it
I listened to the Tony Conrad release with Faust and, strangely enough, I didn't like it as much as I would expect. It was definitely good, but I felt like Tony Conrad's violin and Faust's rock grooves don't fit. I do like each element separately, don't get me wrong! Faust set a really cool groove in a typical manner for them with all these simple repetitive drum fills and powerful basslines. Conrad on the other hand reminded me of Henry Flynt's violin rural landscapes. The combination of these two worlds somehow take away from the hypnotism of the violin.
It's good, but I thought it would be more exciting (or rather more mesmerizing).
Since we're posting our January charts.
Mine did ok, both of those Jessica Pratt albums are in my top 10 atm, and Delaware is probably somewhere in the top 30-40 range.
I'm not sure what I listened to on the 31st btw. It was definitely something.
Will probably listen to The Goslings now.
Have you ever listened to Sewn to the Sky or Forgotten Foundation?
Drop Nineteens - Delaware
Extremely laid back indie rock/shoegaze. Recommended if you want to hang out with friends on a hot day in the 90s.
They're slightly more amateurish than Julius Caesar, and don't have as much heart, but Forgotten Foundation especially is the only Bill Callahan album that I think comes even remotely close to Julius Caesar.
I'll definitely check them out then, thanks for the rec! I've heard a lot of Callahan's other releases but nothing really comes close to Julius Ceasar and the only one I really enjoyed was Sometimes I Wish We Were An Eagle
anyone can choose an album, but no death grips allowed.
haha okay. I think they are both on the same level and it's quite a cool concept if you consider how it relates to June and Jennifer Gibbons. I think that this is the strongest DG release but I try not to talk about it too much on here cause "le epic memes :^)"
I get it. it's just what you listen to daily or what you particularly liked?
someone rec me a 30~ minute release and i'll listen to, rate, and write a little bit about it right now
Dick Gaughan & Andy Irvine - Parallel Lines (1982)
>celtic folk music, singer/songwriter
I don't particularly care for celtic folk music to begin with, and this is just a watered down version of celtic folk music, and its absolutely daft and forgettable. The vocals on this album sound like a parody, and the instrumentation is nothing to write home about, save for literally the last minute of the album. Not recommended.
and coming off hot of the 4.0- is my first 0.5 of 2016!
i am already listening, thanks though
>haha okay. I think they are both on the same level and it's quite a cool concept if you consider how it relates to June and Jennifer Gibbons
Just googled this a lot, don't know how I didn't know this. if disc one wasn't very bad, I'd be listening to it right now.
girls don't listen to good music.
2bh, ever since I came across this girl I've been convinced that there are qt semi-depressed introverted musically-talented girls who I could relate with if only I knew where to meet them.
>if disc one wasn't very bad
I thought that too after two listens. It started to grow one me unbelievably and there are actually some great hooks hidden here and there. I was planning on making a string quartet transcription of NoTM in the future years. I think it would work out well since it's very complex if you dig into it
They don't exist, sorry.
>Who said the qt has to be a girl?
>Where to find qt girls
The other guy is the filthy heterosexual.
I just assumed everyone in /daily/ threads had good taste
I'll give it a go later and see if my third listen also does the trick. It's been a while since I've listened to it, so I barely remember, but a string version could be cool, maybe, idk.
2am, can't sleep
probably won't sleep
what's some good dawn music
only cool music
listen to this til the sky gets light
or any king krule
>I just assumed everyone in /daily/ threads had good taste
nope, it's just me
i like drone, but not really ambient
i gotta ask, is it "actual drone" or is it somewhat minimalistic ambient like tim hecker
because the latter is not really my cup of tea
i did not like his s/t
it would be better not to pan it
we both would be happier like that
>The Goslings - Grandeur of Hair (2006)
With these types of longish, atmospheric albums, the first listen is pretty important for me, as how much I like the atmospheres and textures usually depends how often I'll come back to it. It's not the best idea to judge something so harshly after just one listen, but whatever.
With this first listen, I was just completely indifferent just about the whole time. I don't know. The whole Sunn 0))) playing shoegaze thing just didn't really seem that interesting. The concept was pretty cool in parts, i guess, and the drums were done really well, so I didn't completely hate it, but having said that I probably won't come back to it for at-least a couple of months.
The last track is pretty killer however.
Best Track: Dinah
oh wow, /daily/ btfo.
at-least I know that doesn't include me.
>Geek The Girl
The video was staged. The girl was an actor paid by youtube.
>How can you be so sure that there are no others?
I asked them all, turns out all they listen to is the radio and tumblr.
try this, then. imagine you're in the tiny, smoke filled bar it was recorded in and listen for the patrons' clinking glasses throughout
>Your good taste status is now unrevoked
I still stand by my score for discipline
in fact, I should lower it.
>Eugene the Oceanographer - The Tigers of Mount Paektu (2015)
I liked the concept, ambient synth pop with traditional influences, but it's very amateurish, and none of these losers know how to sing.
The production is surprisingly decent, although it's like Eugene only had one good idea for a korean sounding synth pop beat, and tried to make a 20 minute EP out of it, this meant that the longer the EP went on, the less I cared about it. Still I listened to it mainly for the cover, so I guess it could have been a lot worse.
Best Track: Yanggakdo Hotel
What's some good non-floral shoppe vapourwave? Trying to show it to some of my brothers/cousins but I'm horrible at explaining it.
Also what listen to next
I've heard it a few times a looong time ago but I don't remember much about it other than the first track.
Kek thats pretty much what i said but i know theres some more pretentiousness to it
steve reid- nova
thanks again, s.
this album is some really well skilled, seemingly ahead of it's time (though, I guess a lot of jazz sounds that way) stuff. all the players are incredible. unfortunately, i'm not enjoying the styles they chose to play on this record. there's some wild freakouts on here, and I gravitate almost invariably towards cool jazz. still interesting, and not unenjoyable even to someone with my taste. i'm sure some of you would love this, i'll probably rec it in the future.
christ this is fucking terrible, it's like it was made by the retarded brother of dj screw who survived his codeine overdose and has been drooling in a basement playing pc games intended for children for a decade
accurate. the guy himself stated that in producing this album he intended to create "a set of songs intended to function as cellphone ringtones" whatever the hell that means. anyways i think to some degree it's bad in a sarcastic way, like most vaporwave tends to be.
I've tried hard on at least three occasions to listen to more than 30 seconds of that album. I tried jumping around to different parts. Didn't help. The Wire put it as their #1 album for the year it came out so I feel like it deserves at least a full listen and a healthy pan. Maybe it'll brainwash me into liking it somehow.
Hey guy's. I'm new to daily, but I felt like joining in this month. Do I need a trip to participate, also is there a sticky or something I should read before joining? Anyways here's my chart for this month. A mix of catching up on essentials and some other things i've been recced.
Hi, no you don't need a trip, the only thing to do before joining is to get taste but not like that's going to happen.
Nice month, two records I like a lot on there plus a couple cool ones. I listened to Pass The Distance recently aswell and it's a treat if you care about Current 93 or Tibet.
>骨架的 - Illegal Antenna
>windows彡96 - Loner Waves (ヒューマンウェア)
>INTERNET CLUB - REDEFINING THE WORKPLACE
>Chuck Person's Eccojams Vol. 1
Gachet - Elite Sounds (1994)
Nice jungle that falls more on the ethereal side than the banging side. And frankly I prefer the banging side. What is jungle if yr speakers aren't blown out by bass at the end of the mix? Its still nice stuff though, when it gets going it /really/ gets going, but it just needs to get going more often.
Sven Libaek - Ron & Val Taylor's Inner Space (1973)
>television music, library music, lounge, jazz
I can very much appreciate the camp value of this record, and the Bill Evans-esque coolness and chillness of it, but as a whole its basically worthless. Sounds like it'd make a good soundtrack—and it probably does—but listened to on its own, attentively, its a slog. Some interesting and subdued drum work here, though.
i'm incessantly putting "Farewell Transmission" by Magnolia Electric Co. on repeat. and debating whether or not to listen to schoenberg. and thanks for reminding me to check out Satantango, i've been meaning to for quite some time.
Watching Evangelion. Only three episodes to go! Hype tbqh.
>inb4 babby's first anime
It is. That's why babby's watching it.
Which Schoenberg? I've only heard string quartets and orchestral pieces, both good though
I have literally no clue about anime except watching Naruto when I was 11, do you recommend that what you just watched?
ay while I'm home for christmas, i got my brother to make a top 100 chart
do u memelords have any good recs for him
Action's engaging, drama's reasonably well written for the most part, story's interesting. Pretty good stuff. Would recommend.
I'll definitely go for EoE once I'm done with the series but I'm not sure if I'll start getting into the rebuilds, at least not until all of them are done.
Who are the essential 90s pop rock bands everyone's "heard of" again? Nirvana, Radiohead, Tool, U2, R.E.M., Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails... who else?
I'm asking because I'm going to be running a gauntlet listening to these kinds of groups very soon.
David Bowie- Heroes
has a greater 3 album streak existed? Bowie does it again, but with my complaints from Low reversed. The pop tracks are outstanding 5/5, while the ambient instrumentals are lower quality, but still great.
also check my hot new meme track
>everyone's heard of Modest Mouse, Jeff Buckley, Stone Roses and Sonic Youth
I think you greatly underestimate the general public's interest in music knowledge. I do think that most people by the age of 15 have heard Jeff Buckley's Hallelujah cover, but how many of them actually care to know who sang it? Also I have no clue what Stone Roses song you're referring to and wouldn't be surprised if most people that know them incidentally know them from having a song on one of the Guitar Hero games.
All I know is that starting Monday night I'll have the next five days off and I'm going to get the pain of 90s pop culture out of the way, like that day I listened to a bunch of 80s hair metal bands.
Home. Sleep now and beer and weed and Satantango after that. Also my flatmates appear to have hung up a new poster.
looking to listen to this for the tourney, but all the links are dead, can anyone share it for me?
I haven't every really done /daily/ ever. I'm not entirely sure how it's used actually. Basically, I've been using /mu/ for about two years, but still have a fucking impossibly huge backlog. These albums were all just ones I picked that I have yet to listen to. Either stuff that was highly rated or that was recommended to me personally. Some of these I've listened to before, but can't remember them at all (like Led Zeppelin), so they ended up here and don't really count as "done."
Yes I am doing a hundred albums. No, I really haven't listened to any of these. Yes I am trying to do every Zappa album eventually. Yes I am autistic.
Guess I'll review the one's I've listened to so far this month.
Macha's s/t was fucking fantastic. Definitely was not expecting something so great from something I've heard nothing about. Anyone who like See It Another Way needs to listen to this.
I expected a lot from Super Ae after VCN and Super Roots 7, which are some of my favs. While it did have a lot of ups, it felt too bogged down in repeating what wasn't it's strong points, unlike VCN.
Madvillainy 2 had some awesome moments, but was set up for disappointment calling itself "Madvillainy 2" despite having no new rhymes from DOOM.
Zeppelin II and III ain't like I remember 'em. IV still aight tho.
Dr. Octagon was fantastic. Dude reminded me of A MF DOOM-like figure with the quirky lyrics and general style. Wish Kool Keith would make more like this instead of doing whatever he's been doing for the past few years.
Talking Head's Fear of Music had a few great moments, while SABAF had fewer, and flirted with the slightly-annoying.
Looking forward to being made fun of on the Internet :)
it's a playlist btw, so copypaste the link into the URL bar
I discovered Boredoms back in '08 and Ae was my first album from them that I heard. It's for the same reasons you listed that I overlooked them until I came to /mu/ eventually and I really sort of hate it for that reason.
Welcome to /daily/! Nyarlothep was actually trying to finish Zappa's discography too but he gave up. Maybe you'll inspire him to finish.
I called some guys gf a butternut squash and he says he's gonna beat me up on tuesday
Eh, I was thinking more on the popularity level of Smashing Pumpkins/NIN/Beck. Everyone knows Float On and the Hallelujah cover, honestly I doubt most people'd know most of these bands other then Nirvana and Green Day aside from a couple of tracks and maybe the name
ur roomies cannot be generalized to all normies in all countries
I don't blame him, 60s and early 70s era Zappa is some of my favorite shit. Uncle Meat is one of my few Perfect Albums (™)
But GOOD LORD does Zappa have some shit. Honestly albums like Francesco Zappa made me want to kill myself.
His most recent (and final) album is really interesting actually. Lots of Tibetan throat singing and other weird shit. Would recc.
Also, does that Voices of American Owls album not load for anyone else on RYM? It's seriously not working for me at all...
Reccing Harakka Bialoipokku, Hosianna Mantra, Millions Now Living Will Never Die (or just any Tortoise you haven't heard), Sun Ra, Shape of Jazz to Come, and Moondog
Also, I got an unappealable couple-day ban when I posted in a thread where some people were making fun of you. Did you file a ban on me for posting in a thread where I was defending you? I'll see if I can find it in the archive if you want a reference.
These albums are by artists that have made some of my fav shit, so I'm pretty hype.
its 2016 and I need to listen to more music, so why not join in on this month.
chart is just full of stuff I have been wanting to listen to/maybe 1 or 2 random albums thrown on. nothing to wild really
lets see how this goes
I don't know. Im sure a ton of people got banned in the thread becasue it was literally a Dox post. I personally DIDINT file reports on anyone in it but I know for a fact a few people who I am friends with did, sorry you got caught up in that mess.
Pic related for avant week flam
I'll always love hot rats and Uncle Meat but I agree one hundred underscore. I'm aiming to finish Beefheart's discography this year, are you a fan?
Yeah but they do know it's Nirvana. A lot of normies might recognize that Modest Mouse song but they probably wouldn't know it's by them, so I would assume they wouldn't fall under the category of bands he's looking for
Moondog was the least wrong to recommend of those three broseph.
I agree but that's true for only 4-5 of the bands he originally posted, I know plenty of normies who'd know Black Hole Sun if it came on but have no idea who Soundgarden are
I think if you divide the amount of good shit released over albums released, Beefheart has a much better discography. The best of Zappa is better, but I got a Beefhardon for Beefheart.
I apologize. I'll try to give less and better reccs from now one. I didn't need to recc 7 albums to be honest.
And now I feel bad about calling you out, thanks nerd.
Eh, I would reverse that, they're one of those bands most people know are hip/"indie" but've never listened to outside of Float On, maybe I just hang around weird normies tho
It was all for the better I suppose. To tell the truth the only reason why I'm still posting is because we hit the bump limit and I have all these silly pics. Look at this silly Russian woman with that gun. Isn't that silly? I think it's silly.
Who would /daily/ choose?
Something about Don's aesthetic is very fulfilling. If the man just wrote more mixtures of his pop and experimental albums I'd be without a complaint but oh well, he's dead and that's that.
Wait till you see this bad drawing of Stalin hugging an unclassifiable vaguely humanoid organism.
Beck doesn't really fit that grouping. He never has really done straight rock, there's folk, hip hop, or some random other shit involved.
Throw John Coltrane - Meditations into either the avant or free section. It's kind of a nice balance between off the walls free jazz and standard improvisation.
Actually do: A Love Supreme -> Meditations -> Ascension
It'll be totally worth it do see the craziness evolve.
Nah, they found pictures of my GF and made fun of her though!
I could care less ultimately it was public info anyways. I just find it strange someone would go that far to post my facebook over my affinity for britpop.
Dude has a smaller dude with a small gun on his helmet. Hella silly.
Real men choose based on charges, not looks. Dibs on the terrorist chick.
Rolled Ms. Soft Drugs instead. Lame. At least I have this guy who has a whole platoon on his hat. That's some serious firepower. So silly...
Dude with gun in car with dude with gun on the side. Silly business.

>picks half the board and still gets one he didn't want
Tough luck bub.
I know, right?
Not bad for a consolation prize.
Wow, I didn't even notice that. You learn something new every day.
>got coke lady as well
Sucks to be you.
Dreams do come true
>tfw no more Tank Girl edits
>tfw won't make more
Sorry for the late reply, but thanks for this one. It was one of the songs on feels that I genuinely enjoyed but I'd never really read into the lyrics very much. They definitely describe how I'm feeling right now
Definitely cool world. The little bits of digital magic in it move my non-korean soul. What's yours?
Can we hit 400 first?
Where is Triangle?
I miss Triangle
He was always posting in Hamp's /trad/ threads. Is that even a thing anymore? I miss him too.
Triangle if you ever see this I want you to know that you can always come back home
Rip in pieces, little prince, we will m
