listening to this beast
being autistic on the internet after a week of heavy normie-ing
So I attacked the idea of listening to mathrock pretty hard yesterday and lost focus, gonna lean off that stuff for a while. It's not worth listening to something I don't really care for (emo, hardcore punk, indie rock) just for the sake of having some complexity on top. Complexity still doesn't necessarily equal a large range of textures in the guitar which is what still bowls me over. Or dipping into other styles to accent the original style of the music being played. Which just leaves the question of what to listen to now... I'm gonna do some searching and come back with a list of bands, see if anyone knows em or likes em.
>what're you listening to right now? what are you gonna do today?

>Soundboy's Suicide Note
The dark beats with voices on top that create a really haunting atmosphere, that maintains it's quality throughout, but with the vocals in the first track being the best.
Definite recommendation to everyone
I was actually just memeing but I think new Kanye might be good, new track surprised me. Think it will be polarizing though
I honestly think I won't end up caring for AnCo despite the fact that I used to love them to death, single was good but I dunno
Could anyone judge what kind of music this could be just looking at the cover? I saw the image on discogs and covered my screen to hide the listed genres. This cover is so weird I want to be blindsided by whatever the fuck this is.
>The Necks - Mindset
>minimalist jazz, free improvisation
The first track sounds pretty whimsical so far, but it's not a children's album, surprisingly. The percussion's kind of tribe-ish, with a moog, wrapped up in some jazz-fusion, but nothing sounds Latin-influenced.
Not as weird as I thought it was going to be. Basically weather-channel core with a few interesting percussions flourishes on top.
shakleton is one of the few artists whose music I've heard before. I'm still sad I missed the occassion to attend one of his sets when he played at my hometown
anyays, very nice album, great usage of vocals, that make the thing diverse and interesting; atmosphere that carries the music; In the Void is the best track
Many, the latest examples that come to mind might be Hinds, Lorde, XX, Ed Sheeran, ... that kind of awful shit
because of this more interesting people making more interesting music are being left off and all that stuff
okay, it has always been like this but i'm a little internet rambler cunt, can't avoid it :-)
I guess today's gonna be "weird album cover day", I don't fuckin know.
>Popol Vuh - Hosianna Mantra
One of my most anticipated records for this chart. Got hooked after seeing Aguirre and have been listening to that soundtrack for days but Hosianna Mantra just didn't do anything for me and then I've listened to it like 4 times today
it seems like you have a case of listened to bad music

I could've done some reviews for this, but I guess no one's reading them so I'll just leave the update here. If you want recs though - I'll be here!

Should I go see the new Herzfeldt? He's overhyped /daily/core for sure, but I do think he makes worthwhile films.
Depends on how much time you have, if you have enough time for a feature length filn then pick something else or just listen to music instead. Herzfeldt seems like a bit of a one trick pony anyway.
it's showing as part of a feature-length revue of animated shorts. I'm mildly intrigued by the rest but seeing as hertzfeldt has everybody jizzing themselves (again) that's my focus. I'm going to air it out with friends and see what comes back.
Gonna start this, pretty hype after the record

Improved again, now with an optional bonus part
Tomorrow I will ty to find a way of including the x0 multiplier
Pretty happy with it for now, it does not replace an emotional rating, but it's interesting to see what a calculated one results in.
oh, I remember soemone saying this is a try at an objective rating system in the last thread, but it isn't at all, because each point is getting rated subjectively
And someone please give me an album to listen to, I wanna test some more
So does he not have any more good albums? Everything else I've heard from him sounds like shit.
i'm proud of you
I also really like your rating thing, try this record out
yes, for now it's limited to rock/pop and similar
I'm thinking of making it for other genres too
Or I could try to change it, so it can be used for more genres
-> adding points, making points optional
thank you! Will try it out tomorow

>Sequentia - Canticles of Ecstasy
What more can I say than that it is exquisitely beautiful but also a little monotonous. I have a feeling it didn't really resonated with me as it should have.
I knew it could only be you

does it mean anything though?
I paused the movie after What A Day It Was because I went to take a piss and posted before unpausing. don't really lose anything if you pause during songs do you?

I promise I'll update the AOTY thing soon, life's been busy.
Here's the latest version of my first 2016 chart, Tongue Tied was so good oml.
Just saw your Star rating, glad someone else likes it; I gave it the same rating on my first listen.
If you're interested I can upload a 29 minute collection of demos that I've found. I've spent some time getting the track order right, and their sound has always been pretty samey, so it flows really well now. Lo-Fi Star works really well too I find, considering how incredibly clean Devastator is.
For the most part it shows off Shannon Roberts a lot more, and she is really great on the record. While Devastator was a lot more interesting with instrumentation, these demos have a much more subdued guitar, so most of the songs are driven by Shannon's incredible vocals.
Her cadence is incredible, the songs get such a great boost from a slight pause here, or an unexpectedly sped up moment. On one of her solo albums, there's this song Code Atom, which has the most unique pause I've ever heard, I have no idea why she's on another level compared to everyone else when it comes to this.
I really wish I knew when these demos were recorded.
Side one over!

Been even more sociable and it has sort of helped me escape the shitstorm that's going on in my family. There've been less and less sober days, but I think that's fine for now. I might have joined too many book clubs. The sparest of my spare time is now completely filled with reading and I don't like there being deadlines on my reading. Listened to a lot of Andrew Jackson Jihad. It's nice to have music to silently sing along to and Christmas Island is perfect for that.

It's a nice record but not super awesome or anything. Not much of a fan of Clifford Brown's solo work but he does like nobody when it comes to supporting a singer / roach
Jim Ford - Harlan County (1969)
>country rock, country soul
Hokey as fuck and too hillbilly-ey for my tastes, but with like one or two good tracks. Ford's got a pretty awful voice for soul music, but I guess "country soul" just straight-up sounds like music I'd have a vitriolic hatred for off the bat, so I guess its not /too/ bad. I like it when it gets swampy and funky, but those moments are few and far between. OK album, but on the low end of OK.
being sociable is always good and healthy, normieness be damned.

Hive Mind - Death Tone (2005)
>dark ambient, drone
Rumbly and bassy drone, that's pleasant on the ears and suitably evil sounding but that's also a bit mind-numbingly repetitive and completely free of variation. But there is a nice part at around 30 minutes where it sounds like theres some distorted and mutilated drums coming in, and that's really nice. And the album/track as a whole does have a real nice sound, it just needs to be spiced up a lot more. Checking out the collab with Luasa Raelon soon.
fuck me has it really taken me like 2 months to get through 25 albums?

阿部薫 - Winter 1972 (2004)
>free jazz, free improvisation
More of the same saxophone violation from Abe, a la 木曜日の夜. But Abe is seemingly more constrained here, it doesn't sound /quite/ as much like he's fighting in a room full of demons. Its still free and chaotic, of course, but 木曜日の夜 is significantly freer and more chaotic, and is better and more memorable as a result. Not the best free jazz I've heard, but certainly servicable.
god greek food is so delicious
Grant Green- Idle Moments
Absolutely beautiful. Green's guitar feels like a voice, and the rest of his band can more than keep up with his playing as well, in particular the saxophone steals the show at many points on the album(especially that first solo on Nomad). I also really loved the use of vibraphone to make the percussion more interesting.
pretty good column. stormandstress and eleh were standouts.
what row should i do next?
Went to an open mic night in my neighborhood and saw a small 50 year old lady use a tiny doll, about 15cm tall and not a even a marionette, to imitate dancing and singing over a CD player playing a terrible modernized (and longer) version of this song:
After that she did the same thing over a different song. Then she muttered something about how we shouldn't wear fur. Both before and after her performance she was walking around holding the doll. Afterwords someone mentioned that she's there every time they hold the open mic night.
By far the best "live" musical performance I have seen.

I've decided the cut off for entries will be when I finish my current chart (see >>61612613), which will be in about 7-11 days.
I just finished my second listen of f(x). Ridiculously good release.

That some day should be soon, that record is incredible.
I eventually want to go to the effort of playing around with the songs so they're a more consistent volume. If I do that, a few of the tracks have a few seconds of silence at the end that I may cut out.
I'm also not 100% sold on the track order atm, White Fear and Cock Swan especially are tracks that I think could be placed better.

I Saw the Devil is probably the most entertaining and violent movie I've seen in a long time; I loved it.
So far Low is probably the best Bowie album I've heard, I should probably relisten to the other three later.
>treating music like a material commodity that has an objective value
Good ass movie, good ass album. If you haven't seen Chan-Wook's revenge trilogy yet (Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, Lady Vengeance), do it asap. Oldboy is my favourite of the three, but Mr. Vengeance is probably the closest thing to I Saw the Devil. Also, despite being called a trilogy they are only connected in terms of general theme (the futility of revenge) so it doesn't matter in what order you watch them.
been meaning to check out Oldboy for a long time but I never quite got around to it.
Music isn't a commodity but buying music from iTunes is a fucking scam. You don't even get the files in a decent format (AAC in 192 kb/s topkek) so you're forever stuck to itunes itself if you wanna listen to it. if you buy a piece of music you should be able to decide where and how you play it.
Did lots of crazy drugs and listened to these albums:
Radiance & Submission - CFCF
Moonbuilding 2703 AD - The Orb
Exit Stategies - Johnny Nash
Elaenia - Floating Points
The CFCF album was the best out of all 4, with its very chill and interesting sound. iTunes labels this kind of music as "new-age" but don't let that fool you into thinking it's hipster-tier. Moonbuilding is probably my second favorite electronic album of 2015, behind Palmbomen II. With three 14 minute tracks, the album progresses like a mixtape with very unorthodox transitions. Anyways, I recommend all four albums to aficionados of weird and alternative sounding music. Anyone else listen to some super chill/alternative electronic stuff recently?
got a lot of listening done
Paradise by Jane is what thome yorke wishes he could do on his solo work, oddly electronic but very good
Coconuts wasn't all that awesome. It was chill and meditative, but the youtube comment on the video that I listened to summed it up: "This is like being stuck in a utility closet at a luau."
Here Comes The Indian is very good but rather forgetable. I really like what it is, but I don't really like the idea of what it could have been. It's cohesive in that it's not cohesive and it's more of a good tribal ambient album, and if they stuck with the tribal ambient with electronic noise rather than try to throw in some catchy abrasive songs then it would've been something I loved. The reason I think I liked it so much is that I was driving up into the mountains to go skiing when I listened to it, and it was perfect because the sky was clear and the whitecaps glowed in the sun and everything was perfect about the moment, but when I listened back to it in my room, it wasn't as interesting and perfect.
The BBC recording is absolutely fantastic. It's like a more melodic and intimate campfire songs, but less of a crazy sung tongs
Sung tongs has always been my favorite, and I can't express this enough. everything about that album makes me love music and the world and people and animal collective and I love it
Wastered wasn't really interesting. It was hard to find and I don't really know if I listened to the right thing (if it was live, if it was black dice or animal collective) but it felt like being weird for the sake of being weird rather than being outlandish. Like trying too hard. I should probably revisit it.
Who could win a rabbit is a good song, but the single/ep has the Baby B-Side on it. The two songs don't really compliment eachother and Baby feels more like it was segmented out of a stream of consciousness and would do a lot better if it was in the middle of an album, rather than on a single. I could probably say that I don't like the release, but I like the songs, so it's alright I guess.
Arbitrary symbol of insecure masculinism, embraced by simple-minded cowards who fear the feminists will chop their dicks off. A relic of archaic power relations, people such as himself hopefully won't be even remotely relevant in a generation or two. But really, this guy seems entirely replaceable, if he didn't exist someone else would take his niche. The fact that his niche even exists is a bigger problem than he himself is.
I can smell his remarks about Denmark being too left-wing and politically correct from miles.
>Unicorn Porn - The White Stag
Listen to this yesterday while I was driving across California. It seemed like there was a hype train for it back in March, so I figured I give it a go.
It's short. Something like 30ish minutes. So it didn't fill up alot of the drive. Regardless of that, it was interesting. I can see how it's been labeled prog-rock, though to me it leans closer to post rock, with a more aggressive nature, and some deep psychedelic influence.
Certain parts of it are very hypnotic. With all the instruments weaving complex harmonic textures together, others are grandiose for the sake of grandiose.
Overall it was a good listen. I would recommend it for fans of instrumental music. 7.5/10

>Danish Girls Are The Most Masculine In The World

all from the first paragraph of the book's description holy shit
Home Base was good, but it didn't really resonate with me. I like Search for Delicious and the live Bros, but I didn't like the first two "tracks" that were more electro beat with shitty lofi sampling. It was okay for what it was, but Person Pitch did it so much better.
Young Prayer is so intimate. Panda bear shows his amazing vocal talent on this album and the mantra esque nature of the tunes are cold yet comfy. I thoroughly enjoy this release
Just Another Diamond Day is always paired with Prospect Hummer because of the singer, but it's strange coming from Young Prayer because it seems as though JADD had more influence on Young Prayer than it did on Prospect hummer. I liked the album, but a lot of the songs sound similar and the songs seem to repeat themselves after a while. I feel as though a few songs could be cut out of the album, and maybe a few songs could be extended. The song I liked the most was one of the shortest, Hebridean Sun. This album feels like a very well done collection of intimate folk hymns. When the parts are summed, it doesn't seem quite as appealing to me.
Prospect Hummer is JADD and Young Prayer taken to the next level. Probably my favorite non core albums by anco so far.
laptop is kill
shit had all of my files on it
The first album's psych/space rock influences were it's main downfall. When the album gets a beat or a rhythm going it kills. But when it's doing it's wishy-washy ambient psychedelic "hey look guys i'm Hawkwind" shit it becomes a drag. Those parts need more focus and direction. I have to admit though the overall atmosphere and feel to this album is distinct and effective. 6/10
Second album had great pacing and exceptional production, but the songwriting itself lacked direction. The instrumentation is pretty good though. This review sucks. 6.5/10
Third album was amazing. It's the closest Suicide imitation I've ever listened to. Not once in my 100 years of music listening have I heard a modern indie album successfully pull off the sound of an older band this damn well. If you told me that Alan Vega made this album I would believe you. Outstanding production, great sense of melody and emotional delivery, fantastic pacing, the album is varied well, and the minimal instrumentation is composed effectively. Hell, i'd go so far as to say that this album is better than the infamous Suicide debut.
there I said it
badlands is better than suicide

If i remember correctly he was mad about the Danish women not telling him how interesting he was.

>Mnemonists - Horde
>rec'd by Talking Cat Bob
Another drone album, can't really say I liked it more than Eliane Radigue, but this one was a lot more varied. It was another mixed bag of good songs and bad songs. The last track was very interesting, I don't know if it was intentional or maybe I just downloaded a shitty version of it, but it would like buffer for like a few milliseconds every once in a while, and it really played with my mind, trying to figure out if they're just trying to fuck with my head or it's just a bad copy of the song. I'm hoping it's intentional, cause if not I'll lower the score I gave it.
>Giant Claw - Dark Web
>recc by Eldurrson
To sum it up real simple, it's R Plus Seven but with more plunderphonics. It's not really better than R+7 but it's still enjoyable, I'd recommend you check it out if you liked that album.
now we can finally move on to the next round fucking hell
week 2 was ok. highlight is blackstar (legit), but where have you been all my life is really comfy too (if dull).
All these posts and no mentioning Gentle Giant by name.
>he doesn't listen to adult contemporary
hi guys I haven't been keeping up with daily because I've been finishing my new album it's done now and on bandcamp.
you guys sometimes like the other stuff I've released so here I am spamming again!
alritey, back to Supersilent again
giving this a listen now
and i guess if we're going there...
i've spammed this a few times before, but i'm really happy with how it came out. it's like plunderphonics/minimal techno/sound collage/post internet culture jamming shit
I record on a laptop mic and mess with it in programs until it sounds good, effectively.
Something Like Comfort is actually constructed entirely of a single, solo guitar improv. Everything you hear is taken from one recording, layed over top of itself and pitch/time shifted etc.
>i love the way the bassy audio distortion and clipping are built into the music.
Actually very highly intended. The strange sounds that come out of digital systems failing is something that I feel hasn't been explored enough outside of glitch music.
A lot of what I do musically is exploring how digital sounds crumble under pressure and taking those pieces and putting them back into something interesting.
You hear it the most on the opening track, but it is present in others.
>that sax on heavy girl is amazing as well. really liking it man!
oh yes and this also that is my friend performing. Credit given, he does some wonderful ambient stuff;
(is in details of album)
>ZENИTH - Ritual
Nice sounding ambient with a little post-rock influence. Has this great lush sound that's a little moody but also warm, a very bitter-sweet sound. This would make a great album for roaming around the woods at dusk music.
I loved this, what do i do now? This is apparently both my first sophisti-pop album and my first Danish rock album.
what's the point of that really? it's just a dumb pic I made for the general, and I'm not interested in their music
fuck I should listen to adult contemporary
>implying term would know what you were talking about
Gave it a spin and it was really good i must say. I really liked how the glitch and noises leak into each other seamlessly creating a nice layered sound, to the point where it feels like a group imrpov interplay at times. Especially liked Heavy Girl btw. Good job, man.
On a side note, the intro to Wide Smile felt to stuttering at first and while i love panning it was too spaciated in there imo (just a pet peeve of mine, don't worry too much ayy).
Fuck that guitar / sax sounds incredibly good coming from a laptop mic.

>Laura Nyro - New York Tendaberry [Torts]
Singer/Songwriter pop. She has an amazing voice and can write pretty good songs, but the production here isn't as complementary as I'd like. Most of the time the instrumentation is just a same-ish piano that sounds similar in all the other songs. There's also some strange choices in mixing, but her powerful voice still manages to break through. 3-/5
>In Aeternam Vale - Jealous God 05 [Benji]
Pretty vanilla techno. I still enjoyed the beats and grooved, but it doesn't have a lot of distinguishing or interesting traits - everything sounds completely ordinary. I agree that it's pretty clean but it wasn't amazing. 2/5
>Sophie - Product [GaussHauss]
I've already enjoyed the first half of this comp during the last years. I guess it's because of the unique images it evokes, or how everything sounds ridicously overprocessed and clear. Sophie spends a lot of time constructing and finding his sounds, and it shows. The singles released later didn't fail either, but enhanced the idea of what the artist could do. MSMSMSM is an instrumental with a delicious pompous bassline, Vyzee is his greatest pop song, L.O.V.E. is his sound study even amplified, and Just Like You Never Said Goodbye is unexpectedly emotional. 3.5/5
>Out Of Focus - Out Of Focus [Kanzler]
Ominous krautrock release that makes a great use of saxophones. The kosmische musik sound actually becomes amplified with a sunny instrument like it; and the album comes out like an affiliate of Amon Duul's Yeti that on some aspects is enhanced. The vocalist has a fitting voice and his lyrics are very political, but he overall joints all the different pieces wekk. It actually rocks, too. 3.5/5
>Fuck Buttons - Slow Focus [Dam's-Jans]
Long electronic drones that actually have a lot of substance. The sound is very full and occupies most of the space it can. Other than being really fun, it is as visual - and at the same time abstract. 3/5
>Mats/Morgan - The Music Or The Money... [dailyfriend]
Two discs, one by mats and one by morgan. The first side sounds completely horrible, with psychedelic pop vocals smashed with despisable avant prog. It sounds just off and utterly fake. The second side is a more electronic and and calm approach, with some parts that were legitimately enjoyable. It's still a shame that some prog traits manage to come over, because it drags it down by a lot. I'd see how somebody would like this more than me though. 1.5/5
>John Fahey - The Great Santa Barbara Oil Slick [co]
My first Fahey. I agree that there's something beautiful in his playing and some of the songs here are genuinely good; but I'm more interested in diving into his album work, because it seems to be so much more concise. He can do a lot with a single acoustic guitar, but his playing results tiresome after more than an hour. Still, there are some good tracks that seem to be only on this recording; and that's worth it for me. 3-/5
>The Scalp Lock Singers - Canadian Blackfoot Indians [somedumbcunt]
Native American Indians have really interesting traditions and ways of doing. They also apparently did some really good music. It sounds unfiltered, coming directly from the heart; and it's powerful considering it's only made of tribal one-tone percussion and vocals. My dad also liked it. 3+/5
Blue means lost and pink means won!
I still love you all guys.
prefab sprout is GOAT sophisti-pop. the nightfly by donald fagen is good as well. and if you want modern sophisti-pop go with destroyer's kaputt.
listen to >>61630508, but go with his first 4 or so if you want more concise stuff. fare forward voyagers is his magnum opus, but its very sprawling with long tracks. still stays incredibly fresh throughout its runtime though.
maybe vanilla wasn't the right word
I used to hang out on bleep's plug.dj (rip) and I remember similar stuff being played.
It remembered me of something but I still am uncertain of what, if I find it ill definetly show it to you. I can see how it's "good" though
>tfw missed the tournament
>Basic Channel - BCD
I don't know, I just find it a bit boring. I don't feel any desire to listen to it another time.
>Dino Sabatini - Shaman's Path
I would have loved this if it went further with the dark atmosphere and the tribal stuff which is very rare.
>Plastikman - Consumed
Hey this is pretty good but I don't know why. Maybe it was the repetitiveness. The title track is especially good. It also made me realize that I should probably listen to these techno album somewhere else than in my room, browsing my computer.
>Mayuko Hino - Akashic Records
Mayuko Hino is a Japanoise veteran, member of C.C.C.C and an ex-JAV actress, known for her blockbusters such as “Women Prison: The Lynching”, “Semi-Document: Fake Gynecologist” and “Torture Chronicles 3: Female Inquisition”. Akashic Records is her first solo release that piles up onto an already impressive résumé.
Metallic clangs open the album with “Veil Of Ignorance”, where a static noise generator is accompanied with an incredibly distorted electric guitar and a distorted piano. The latter is very haunting and unnerving. It all turns into a chaotic nightmare the further the track progresses. I just wish the noise static had more variety…
…that comes in on “Mediator”. An EAI-esque track where the static takes its time to attack the listener, bouncing through mirrors of sound. Powerful 3 minute long track that lacks a proper closure.
“Mebius Strip” is based off a noisy arpeggiator. I think it lacks any proper direction and just trickles down along with strong waves of static generators. Occasional developments in the synth oscillator fuckery tends to be exciting but for very short periods of time.
“Atomism” is more strong currents of noise in several rhythmic patterns. There is a droning core on top of which Mayuko builds landscapes of nothingness. Similar meditations can be heard on “Autos Akos = Autacoid”, which is based off a more abrasive sine wave core. They sound like a working time machine in a certain old Soviet comedy.
“Klein Bottle” almost sounds like a reprise of Mebius Strip. The same arpegiatted synth but the noise currents get more interesting. Instead of pumping them along with the same synth melody, they develop their own carcass and ride along with the arpeggi on their own terms.
“Quality Of Pleasure” is just a fuckton of cathartic noise. Sirens and layers of static directing precision strikes of noise. It’s nice to look into but I can’t find anything that particularly catches my attention for the 7 minutes it contorts.
The bulge of the album is the 31 minute long track titled “The Golden Rule”. This is basically 31 minutes of harsh noise with occasional moments of surreal shifts. Cosmic sounds coming out of all the wall noise. I thought it was boring past the first 10 or so minutes but if you like long noise tracks, this is for you.
The album is closed off by “For R” in two different permutations. The Noise Remix features swirling noise with a primitive piano melody ala “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”. The solo piano is the thing that culminates all the sound on this album.
I am sort of torn here. Some of it was really good, some of it was boring. 6+ is probably a fair score for this. Check it out if you like noisy noise.
Wow, this was pretty damn good. Lazarus is a fantastic track, and the rest of the album is solid.
I'm a Bowie pleb, only having listened to The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust. Does have more jazz influenced stuff in his discog that's worth checking out?
bcd kind of blows because it hacks the tracks up to make them shorter and they don't have any space to breathe. it's not really the best start point for the basic channel stuff- i'd recommend you perservere
What don't you like about it besides his voice?
It's jarring and the erratic drumming in combination with the slow, plodding bass beat clicks with me I guess.
Also, how can you not love a song that uses slang from A Clockwork Orange?
his vocals and the lyrics are pretty cringeworthy honestly. I don't remember the instrumentation, but I won't ever know how it was cause I won't relisten desu, his voice and lyrics were such a huge turnoff, and the chorus was shit
I actually noticed the vocabulary, but there are some pretty cringeworthy lyrics on that song
I find it more funny/charming than cringeworthy. The fact that Bowie just comes out with this dark art pop album at 69 and sings "who the fuck's gonna mess with me." He hasn't aged at all.
didn't hear it, but I should
after that Vai album I think I should try stuff like that album and mediocre adult contemporary, it's good to poop on an album once in a while
nice timing ^^
checked out one of the tracks and I found it pretty neat, too lazy to listen to the whole thing right now but I will do so tomorrow maybe
doesnt look like i have much competition except fishmans
doing this now
eldurrson i need your rec for this
I'm afraid to listen to the Bowie album. I didn't really like the single and I feel like I'm going to share Bunji's opinion. It seems like he's trying to pull a Scott Walker, but isn't enough of an absolute madman to pull it off. Idk. I'll probably listen to it in the next couple weeks.
This CD contains very very grand Beethoven stuff. More than 50% of it is overtures that bring the drama. The opening two are taken out of Egmont and Coriolan. Both have very ambitious concepts as the background and sounded satisfyingly "huge". I think the string sections on the Große Fuge were absolutely sublime and are my definite highlight of this disc. The sensitive strings on the closing cavatina (which, along with the great fugue, is a bit from the 13th string quartet if I'm not mistaken) were just the cherry on the cake. The closing excerpts bring in a sense of calm after the bombastic opening pieces.
Outside of the closing cavatina, the sound quality was very good. This small box of Beethoven is going into an interesting direction after all the symphonies were packed in. Interested to hear the piano concertos next.
Well the reason why I'm interested in your opinion is because I can see you totally leaning either towards the "this guy is completely cringe" area or consider it Beefheart-tier genius.
I'll just have to wait and see.
What went wrong /daily/? Someone in the Bowie marketing department is going to get chewed out once their boss gets a hold of this.
i'll post more art memes for us intellectuals to enjoy
