Keep it up!
nice anime eyes
I know very little here today
+steve reich, Philip glass
that Japanese artist in your bottom left hand corner is fucked. Have you heard their later stuff?
have you heard this is nats before? it's pretty nats
have you heard musica brasileira de(s)composta before? it's pretty de(s)composta
have you heard ex-girl before? it's pretty ex
i think that's basically the two requirements for good music
you know that thing where you listen to only black metal for a month
i'm doing that but not with black metal
it's been interesting to see the reactions
well there's the violently angry ones but that's pretty rare
mostly it's just been "ums" and "ok that's not my thing but whatever" and no one's like turned down any of my recs or anything
which is cool i think
I'd hope they're rare, getting angry over what others listen to is a bit uh
when I did the black metal thing I tried to recommend nothing but black metal too, as an exercise to realize the variety within the genre. it was pretty interesting.
i guess it's some kind of posturing thing or idek
that does make sense, you get so caught up in recommending people stuff that's really similar to what they have but thinking outside the box is way better
i didn't realize how forcing yourself to only explore one little section could be helpful at all but it has given me a brilliant excuse to go back through all the groups i had written off based on one listen like 5 years ago and i'm rediscovering all sorts of stuff i really like
it's been fun so far even though there's about 20 things i want to listen to
+Gaye, Norma Jean
also, + Verdi
+f(x) and after school and bach
~t-ara and shinee
going to check it out now thanks
i wasn't really feeling any of after school's singles but both of those albums ended up really impressing me, especially dress to kill
ex-girl is basically my favorite band along with melt-banana and f(x) they're so incredible
if you end up liking any of their albums listen to them all, i'm serious
Andrew Bird - The Mysterious Production of Eggs
yeah, i'm liking this ex-girl song you linked a lot and going to download everything.
it was the singles from dress to kill that won me over to be honest. shinichi osawa used to be that day one electro house producer for me during the bloghouse era.
