I d-d-decided to make an OP image for y-your v-viewing p-pleasure ;-;
Secos & Molhados - Secos & Molhados (1973)
>folk pop, progressive pop, art pop, psychedelic folk
Some tracks do kinda sound like a lesser, distinctly Brazillian version of Sparks, but overall this is a nice album. The production is absolutely fantastic here, the bass is crystal clear and the drums pop exquisetly. And the songwriting is good, really fun. Not mind-blowing and some songs don't hit, but overall nice.
why the fuck are we so dead
Portraits of Past - 01010101 (1995)
Nicely noisy and passionate screamo. A bit too twinkly and midwest-y for my screamo tastes, but sometimes it reaches that point of pure noisy Orchid/Jeromes Dream screamo perfection. It doesn't come close to hitting the high points that these artists hit, but its still good stuff.
one more bonus album spot

It's basically a less interesting Campfire Songs. I would only recommend this if you already really like that album.
King Tears Bat Trip - King Tears Bat Trip (2012)
>avant-garde jazz, free jazz
i've written something for this fucking album like 4 times but i keep getting the goddamn embdedded file error bullshit and for some reason the text didn't copy so all im gonna say is its good stuff but a bit monotonous and the bits with the sax are real nice and break the monotony of the layers of percussion.
schoenberg and oscar nominations tomorrow! get h y p e!!!
tonight I am working on a cross stitch and the cat is sleeping on my lap. recommend me some noise music to counter this 66-year-old-woman style i've got going on. i'm lprefer a deep, thick noise wall, and little higher end squeals. like the stuff in this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44zeF26J_nQ
can you help me, daily?
good night, natty k. cole
I went to earth and all i got was this shitty meme
This album: wow/10
Anyway, nice OP pic. What's new here.
Funkadelic- Maggot Brain
Obviously the first track is fantastic, but the rest don't hold up. They're not bad, just disappointing compared to the first track
Zappa chart for next month. Will probably do these + 50 other albums.
Anyone heard any of these? Any you enjoyed a lot? Any you hated a lot?
good morning bump
ive been updating my current chart even if i havent posted it in a while
i also made this. dont feel like making a chart thread tho so ill just post it here
listening to Wake Up! rn. sick synths and solid production, francis
sure. ive been thinking it might be interesting to anti-drone someone, or a number of people, might do a chart in that vein some other day
i figured those would be noncontroversial picks
few i think should be swapped but idk with what, because after a while i just forget about bad albums usually
tbf shellac actually kind of try on prayer to god
Boyd Rice - Black Album obviously.
It's only good on vinyl, but what kind of pleb doesn't have it on vinyl, lmao.
im on a radiohead streak, again.
But they have a huge leniancy to biopics and especially Hollywood-productions and represent the year in film quite badly. Atleast Cannes brings light to films from around the whole world
maybe you should ask, I think you'd be surprised. both the friends I went to the animation revue with, neither of whom are remotely animation (or film) enthusiasts, knew of him. one had seen beautiful day, too.
>but if we go by that criterium then Arcade Fire are obscure
which is why i wouldn't mind seeing a moderately good not-so-obscure indie band winning, say, a grammy. it might prompt some people to actually start exploring shit.
>Damacha - 3E3240
Cloud (t)rappy beats from Shanghai. I'll say this much: the beat and percussion programming and here is absolutely phenomenal, and is matched by some of the less plastic and corporate sounding arrangements. Only wish it was longer and a little more focussed.
>Magik Markers - I Trust My Guitar, Etc.
This album right away made me feel uncomfortable and afraid, which is exactly how I want a no wave album to make me feel.
But this album falls short in how bad the recording quality is. It's not an endearing kind of lo-fi. I Trust My Guitar sounds really muddy, which is overall distracting and unflattering.
The vocals of this album seem like an afterthought. You can barely hear them and they don't really contribute much of anything.
This band has some cool ideas. The guitars are really the highlight of this album. They're terrifying. And it would make for a great live show. But they won't save this album from mediocrity.
Orchid is probably next, along with what anyone else recs.
>he didn't know
Well now you know. Raw Power's 1997 reissue kicks my ass. Fun House obviously is great too.
I already knew he was a talentless hack, but it's still nice to see it being confirmed.
Those are better than your favourites on average, not even kidding.
I'm gonna go through a little mu core now that my head is better and now that I actually have time to listen to music
How bad of an idea is pic related
(I'm doin it anyways)
anco is a big one yes, I enjoy Perfect from now on a lot, DCH was a favorite some time ago, Nothing Ever Happens by Even As We Speak is one of my favorite EPs, Jim O'Rourke's indie pop stuff is interesting
idk what you define as indie, so I'm missing a lot of stuff probably.
>Vieux Farka Toure & Julia Easterlin - Touristes
Highly recommend this record - Easterlin's vocals are great accompanied by top-notch Malian guitar work, and occasionally Farka Toure on vocals.
Mahler's 6th was pleasant enough but I don't really see myself returning to it that often. What next? What y'all listening to?
Musicians of /daily/ !
Anyone up for participating in a interpretation of a piece of artwork as if it were a score? I've been writing about how people interpret graphic notation that's not traditional as sound, composing on abstract music forms etc. so i'm putting up this kind of project / performance thing to go along with it (as recorded "experiment"), if anyone wants to collaborate and contribute with a recording of it... it'd be great since i need a few more and as of now i only have like three people willingly to do it.
yes? no? i'll be here waiting for your answers
Forgot thing but Casey Kasem says who gives a shit to that too.
Here it is anyway.
>Ordo Funebris - Cantar a la Morte: Fabula Triste
You know the cheesy medieval-ish interludes in black metal with the synths and all? That's an album full of it. It's my guilty pleasure but I can't say this is good. The music is often uninspired, the female vocals are devoid of passion and the male ones are one of the most stupid thing I've ever heard.
But I like it.
>mfw I realize Jim O'Rourke did the mastering on The Great Annihilator
What the actual fuck?
>mfw I realize Jim O'Rourke did the mastering on The Great Annihilator
What the actual fuck?
First track: This is a pretty good album for the punny title. desu it's a pretty good pun.
Second track: FUCKING DILLA
I was expecting the worst and so far it's not too bad, I really liked Hot Dog, and the other tracks so far are okay. Genuinely surprised but that's probably cause I was expecting the worst thing ever
I failed miserably, /daily/
But I listened to the owl meme and this wonderful album
Thank you to the person wo recommended it to me, felt in love real quick
you're so welcome! i'm glad you enjoyed it. which songs did you like best?
and how was pic related?
The first track is so freaking amazing that it is almost impossible to follow up on it, you probably have too high expectations going into the rest of the album, and because of the contrast you might be rating it a little too low, but I can't blame you, because the thought process is really understandable.
Not sure what I'm going to do with my calendar, if I'm gonna fill it in day by day or pre-fill it with the risk that I will not finish it like 80% of my calendars.
>which songs did you like best?
the opener I think, sets the mood perfectly
>and how was pic related?
felt longer than it was, got boring after a while
I listened to a bird songs album before
There is an old lady, who regularly visits the record store I work at and she always ask if we have new bird recordings
So I got curious after a while and listened to one
Just finished this: https://soundcloud.com/miner-monster/untiled_test01flac/s-SdxDB
I'm trying to get into noise/experimental, what do you guys think?
Any suggestion, critic or comment would be very appreciated :)
Ty in advance
I tried to improve on this a bit. I hope Dongwanker will approve this, I think this makes for a much better progression.
Check this out
Brilliant. Would be even better if you added the 6 hour Ghost Passing after The Song Of Morgan with some meme direction
Needs more dynamics( different motifs popping up) . Merzbow used to milk stuff out of similar tracks in his tape days. Got nice atmosphere though
Check out that Endo record for inspiration if you haven't heard it.
>what's the difference between all the 3 stages?
different eras, focus on different instrumentation and lyrical themes.
Period 2 is very unexpected after period 1, so I made separate.
>why did you rec it to me?
potential to be very interesting for you. I might be very wrong.
More people absolutely loving Carly Rae Jepsen's latest album? First few listens I was pretty lukewarm to it, but I'm just grooving out to every song right now, really one of last year's best albums and one of the best Pop albums I've ever heard.
I need the reccs for this, guys
that old lady is patrician af
it can't be that hard to find a good album pre-1970 that isn't from US/Europe
Alright it's been a while since I updated. Still deciding on my rating for De Staat and Morald and Dogma, but here's four things I did decide on.
>Akiko Yano - Japanese Girl
Can't get enough of that jazzy pop found on the opening track. Great track progression with seductive singing, very swingy piano playing, just excellent. What comes after on this album doesn't meet the very high standards set by the first track, but it's all good in its own right. In fact, whereas the first track sees Yano playing with western jazz influences, most of the album is more occupied by pop set to a traditional japanese background. Yano often flirts with traditional japanese elements and singing techniques, but never loses her pop sensibility. It's really entertaining and diverse, with only some tracks being slightly generic pop for its time. Even those tracks, however, are saved at least to a degree by Yano's interesting vocals. 7.5/10
>Mgla - Exercises in Futility
Well-executed black metal, no bullshit. My main complaint is that as a result, it doesn't feel like there's a lot to make it special, so I'm not sure how often I will return to this in the future. Keeping it at a 7/10 for now, if I keep going back to it I'll rise it a little.
>Minutemen - Double Nickels on the Dime
These are some cool tunes, but I don't think I have enough ADHD to love this. With some types and derivatives of punk you can create a fine album with songs of this length because the songs have a very similar feel and structure, but over here we have a lot of diversity. Diversity's cool, but also means that because there's so many different songs on here, it's hard to really latch onto a certain idea. This only gets amplified by how extremely long this thing is. Make the record half as long and put 15 songs tops on it so you can flesh the ideas out a little more and you've got yourself a winner. Also, History Lesson Part II is easily the most memorable thing on here. 6.5/10
>Laurie Anderson - Big Science
Who needs actual instruments? Honestly, this is the best minimal synth music I have ever heard, and the album's supposedly art pop. Idk if I would really call this "pop", considering there are very few hooks, the vocal style is far from poppy (mostly spoken word stuff going on here), and the melodies are very minimal. I'm not a big fan of the brass added on a couple of tracks, for it juxtaposes with how quiet and minimal this album is in quite an ugly way, but otherwise everything here is very tasteful. Anderson's little stories are very nice and in many cases calming, supplemented by the swirling synths and the ticking, clapping percussion elements. The strings added on "Born, Never Asked", contrary to the brass, fits the music very nicely. The centerpiece "O Superman" is the best thing on here though, consisting almost entirely of a vocal sample put on repeat and Anderson singing over it in an android-esque voice. It's surreal, and the album's surreal, and it's both calming and unnerving. I wouldn't mind Anderson getting rid of the more expressive songs (like "From the Air") and just sticking to her unique brand of sound experimentation, it would turn this very good record into a great one. 7.5/10
My "reviews" seem even more jumbled than usual. Unfortunate.
>O.V. Wright - The Bottom Line
Not bad, these are some sweet soul songs that you can bang your old lady too. Has great instrumentation and the vocals are just solid, though they caught me off guard on how soft spoken they are. Takes a moment to get use too but hey it works. Also this is jam packed with ballads, perhaps to much, but i can dig it. Perfect for some soulful late night driving, preferably right before getting a bj.
>Maïeutiste - s/t
Bleh. Terrible drumming, transition between tracks feel off, instrumentation not really working for me, really average vocals. The project is just too scattered shot and unfocused. Couldn't get my head into this project. The only thing I liked was the album art.
REAL NIGGA HOURS WHO UP?
SMASH THAT SYNCTUBE
>caring about the oscars
I didn't expect Mad Max to get that many nominations.
There's a Danish film nominated in the foreign language category. I haven't seen it, but i'm almost certain that it's absolute shit.
>Otis G Johnson - Everything - God Is Love 78
>recd by Talking Cat Bob
Honestly I was expecting a meme but this turned out pretty good. It almost feels like 70s christian rap music. Unlike most gospel music, which is usually performed by large groups, Otis decides to go on his journey towards God on his own. The minimal synths and very simple drum machines make for a great atmosphere, and the lo-fi quality makes it all even better. The lyrics are of course about God and shit, didn't really care too much for em. If you like early Daniel Johnston stuff but felt like you wanted a gospel/soul singer instead, give this a try.
>Keiji Haino - Next, Let's Try Changing Shape
>rec by lewdwander
My first Keiji Haino meme, somehow I've avoided listening to her for so long. This probably isn't the best album to be introduced to Haino, but I liked it. I like those droney guitars, her voice is pretty good too. I'm not very good at reviewing drone albums (or albums in general) so I really don't know what else to say. I liked it plenty.
Oh boy a tie, I know how to solve this, whatever my last 2 digits are declares the winner
Talking Cat Bob = 00-49
Lewdwander = 50-99
top albums will never win, will they?
on to round 3! If you guys decide to rec something...
yuh, will keep shit groovy, and don't worry too much if it doesn't "sound good", it's more an experiment on sound than a proper track you know? it'd be cool and fun at least
idk how we can set this up... First I need to send you the piece of artwork that will work as the score you have to interpret plus some instructions.
Via mail? Tomorrow I'll get on the sync to talk it up anyways so see ya there if I don't get your answers in this thread
Elliott Smith - Live at Largo (2007)
>singer/songwriter, acoustic rock
Cool live versions of the obviously great "Angeles", "Between the Bars", and "Clementine", a Quasi cover, and a Hank Williams Jr. cover. Elliott's original songs are of course great, but none of the performances here expand upon the studio recordings, except "Clementine", which has some really great guitar work. "Clouds", the Quasi cover, is pretty eh, certainly seems out of place following the songs written by Smith. The Hank Williams Jr. cover is oddly enough my favorite song here, all because of the performance. The awkwardly told (and actually really funny) jokes, the laughing, and the mistakes make the performances seem all the more human, something that is kinda missing from Smith's studio recordings and the other performances. Okay little live EP.
Various Artists - The Secret Museum of Mankind, Vol. 1: Ethnic Music Classics 1925-1948 (1995)
>traditional folk music
Mind-expanding collection of Asian and African folk music. Every track here is at least good, but some tracks /really/ outshine the others, and the piercing vocals that are present on a lot of tracks aren't all too appealing to listen to. But barring those two complaints, this is a real good comp.
help me fill this up /daily/

saw the JACK 4tet. the Zorn they did was quite dull, especially compared to his 90s stuff. but more than made up for by an astonishing Xenakis. they've been playing this stuff (Tetras) for more than a decade now and it shows - the more natural it is for them to play, the more and more alien and otherworldly his music becomes... even better than their famous recording. a quartet from john luther adams was also magical.
well there's also a recording of it by the nederlands blazers ensemble. it's not that one, though that's also fine.
TFW as a child you had the Spongebob Squarepants Movie Soundtrack on CD and jammed out unknowingly to Ocean Man and however many years passed and you happened to be listening to Ween's The Mollusk for /daily/ and you are smacked in the face by a fragment of your unknowingly patrician childhood
also of Montreal's Satanic Panic in the Attic is growing on me a lot its really addicting help me

wouldve sweated this when i was 16
also going to add more so give me random albums to fill the next row pl0x
B-32 - I Need A Bag of Dope
>Various Artists - Rumble in the Jungle
I think we can 100% chalk this up to this just not being my type of music. Too dank or something like that.
Reggae is a fine genre but not one I toke the great green meme machine to in general. Jungle is a genre I enjoy well enough. But together I'dunno it didn't really sit well. Great album overall if I were to talk about it on that level, full of energy and bangin' tunes, but it just wasn't for me.
Also some of the synths sounded like farts.
Is that from the motherfucking Sonic cartoon?
Shocked Shit and Shine made another listenable record.
Also, Practicing to Be a Doctor > Ladybird
who else here /incapacitatedbyunexpectedstomachbug/?
now that i have time, today /might/ be the day for schoenberg!
when i gave the mollusk a listen for the first time back in like april of 2014 that fucking blew my mind, because i'd loved that song for so damn long already. also ween did the loop de loop song for spongebob. and the flaming lips song for the spongebob soundtrack is legitimately one of their best songs.
just ate some cheap ramen and on my way to practice some music at my friend's house
I have listened to some tourney albums but ill need to recheck them to get the big picture; that will be hard because two of them are two hours and a half. It WILL be done though.
>A Name Out Of Place Pt.1
Tzusing did not disappoint, I still like Pt.2 more but this shit was everything I wanted it to be. Will explore this artist more for sure.
1976 cured my new hangover and made me wonder where the speech sample is from. Pretty cool sample
What's the best Autechre album and why is it Confield, /daily/?
i can see where youd be coming from, but its not even their best ep
>implying I took the time to listen to all their shite
For reals tho, I don't like Ae but Garbage is nice, not garbage at all.
(not true by the way)
Both of these Stravinsky pieces are fucking excellent. Listen to this.
Today I was supposed to listen to Whenever If Ever by The World Is A Beautiful Place...
BUT FUCK THAT SHIT RUN THE JEWELS 2 FUCKING DROPPED SO LET'S DO THAT INSTEAD!
Just gonna go ahead and say this is my hip hop AOTY and contender for overall AOTY. This album surprised me and I already went in with high expectations.
This is one of those rare albums where it seems everything was done right. All the tracks are good, they all flow really well on the album and all the elements were just soooo well done.
Let's start on the lyrics. They're RTJ style so they're confrontational, funny and not to serious (for the most part) lyrics that are a blast to read through. They're really good and both El-P and Mike rap lyrics that complement their respective flow. There are so many quotable lyrics on this shit. Like I could imagine myself shouting these in a RTJ concert due to how good they sound. Grade A lyrics.
But the best of the album is El-P's production. If he was good on RTJ 1 on this one he is god. What a fucking producer. Every beat sounds so adequate and is so satisfying to hear. I'm terrible at describing sounds but let me just tell you instead that they're all top notch.
I liked the features (although on the song Love Again, the guest verse is the worst of the album) despite people on /mu/ not liking them from what I saw in the threads.
I could go on but I actually want people to hear it for themselves, because since it dropped till now I can't stop listening to it. Maybe it's just me that really likes this style of hip hop but I really think you should try it. It blows RTJ 1 out of the water and most songs are 9/10 or 10/10's.
I give it the amazing rating. (also I changed all the other album's rating to fit the new rating system)
RUN THE JEWELS IS THE ANSWER
AND THE QUESTION IS WHAT'S POPPIN'
A better question would be: any sync man in?
never listened to a full album by this nigga;;
Today I listened to 20 Jazz Funk Greats by Throbbing Gristle.
This is not even close to jazz or funk and I can assure you that there are less than 20 tracks. But I'm glad it was what it is. Because this album was the best album on new genres day.
This band is one of the most responsible for industrial music (from what I read) and this album is part of this industrial sound. But this isn't nearly as abrasive as some of the newer industrial albums (there are some harder sounds but the album isn't that abrasive). I can totally see industrial components but on some of the tracks they're much smoother and more ambient like than some of the industrial rock and metal I've heard.
The themes seem to be, from what I could decipher, about persuasion (and not in a totally nice way) and also sex. Like on my favorite track Hot on The Heels Of Love, which had whip sounds in the background which made me think on the more sadomasochistic side of sex.
So I really liked the themes and the industrial sound which for the most part isn't that abrasive or heavy (Discipline (Berlin) and Discipline (Manchester) have some pretty harsh sounds), which is quite enough for me to give it the amazing rating and make it winner of New Genres Day.
Retrospective on New Genres Day:
Drone Meal : Haven't heard that much outside of Sunn O))) which I really like. Found Earth 2 boring as fuck.
Vapowave: Don't have much interest, might try out more records though.
Blackgaze / American Black Meal : I don't like metal that much so I haven't tried a lot of it but I really like Sunbather.
Krautrock: Def. interested will hear more when I have time.
Industrial: TG discography and NIN here I go!
>Anderson .Paak - Malibu
Weird that this drops mid-January, given it's such a summer album. Great production here, balanced between Frank Oceanesque r&b and D'Angelo's latest soul. Love the rhythm section on this thing, dragging and spilling with taste. Not sold on .Paak's throaty voice just yet, but some great songs despite there being too many of them. The endless skits/samples after every track are annoying but w/e, this is nice.
>tfw 38.2 C fever
He'll be fine.
Listened to a great meme today though, can't wait to share it tomorrow.
This isn't technically the album version, but I took a listen anyway to see if I'd want to listen to more. The deep, deep metal guitar playing combined with the free-form jazz makes for a nauseous, but compelling groove. I'll definitely be listening to more after this, if only because I like music that can get across more complex emotions other than happy/sad/angry. Plus in this version it was a smart move to drown out the enraged vocals a little bit, it makes the song a lot more tolerable to listen to than if it was front and center. This song is also getting better as it goes on, too, so that's encouraging.
Aine O'Dwyer - Music For Church Cleaners
She should have stopped playing the first time the church cleaners asked her to.
Casey Kasem says: ... who gives a shit...
Also, my next chart. After which I will finally continue my large chart.
yknow now that i think about it i've really never listened to any bowie full-lengths besides Low and Blackstar, only the singles. after schoenberg and the bag chart imma get on that.
also goodbye /daily/, don't start any new threads.
