It's the 2rd of October
who cares who says here anyways get taste or whatever
>chart your listening quota
>plug.dj-ersatz for real-time memery
>Site with templates, OP covers, archive, & random shit
the first track is pretty average with the end of it being pretty nice, but the second track is what saves this. it's a 11 minute track that is full of happiness in a totally not cheesy way which is nice to see in bleeps cause I've seen it done a lot of times in an extremely cheesy way
I know you aren't this dumb on the circles part but the center pic is actually to distinguish between the 3 people doing it, Flying Ice Wizard (le stoner ice king adventure time), me (Kozelek) and Kanzler (pokeymans so funny epic)
my first post as a trip!
>KFC Murder Chicks - Golden Age Of Gross Mystery
Something interesting is going on here. It's like noise meets hip-hop beats. Kind of reminds me of Tabacco's album "La Uti", its abrasive but kind of dancey. There is the problem of cohesiveness between tracks, where even though each track has a close similar vibe, stylistically this album is all over the place. So I wouldn't mind seeing future releases from this project, just need to see tighter and more cohesive experience.
could've been better desu.
I'm talking about "Hi i'm the new best tripfag"
sure looks like one.
nmperign/Lescaleet is a lot better than i imagined. i didn't imagine much, so that's not saying anything really, but the use of samples is at least unique for this sort of thing, far as i can tell.
come to synctube we can make the pain stop or kill yourself or whatever
you reminded me of my first month, when i tried my hand at writing oml (>?A?)>
at least i tried i guess? its not like i wouldnt hate every word that comes out of my mouth otherwise
A bit too long unfortunately. I was hoping I'd enjoy this more
>Boredoms - Soul Discharge & Early Boredoms
Holy shit this is fun as hell. This is the most stupid vocals I've ever heard. And the music is just as crazy and spastic. The length is perfect because it's not long enough to be annoying.
Early Boredoms is not as good unfortunately. It's often completely incoherent. Some songs are genius but a lot are terrible. It's also 10 minutes longer than Soul Discharge unfortunately. And FUCK PEOPLE BURPING ON RECORDS.
8/10 for Soul Discharge
6/10 for Early Boredoms
>Polkadot Cadaver - Purgatory Dance Party
One of the most Patton-core album never made by Mike Patton. I mean the singer's voice sounds so much like Patton it's ridiculous and the music sounds a lot like Faith No More, King for a Day...-era. I'm fine with this and I kinda liked Dog Fashion Disco's Adultery which was made by pretty much the same guy. but Adultery was more convincing in its variety. This one is more tame and less inventive. And boy some songs are bad. Also, fuck secret tracks seriously
>Urfaust - Geist Ist Teufel
Uhhh... I don't know what to say. It features what are probably the most terrible vocals in all black metal and I really don't know if i like it or not to be honest. I didn't know whether to laugh or not during the 3rd track when he started to sing "la la la's". The quality is absolutely terrible, even for most bm standards and the music is not particularly stellar. And then all of the sudden the 2 last tracks appear and it gets full Dark Ambient. Track 5 has beautiful atmospheric synths with twisted chants. Last track is beautiful and soothing. it could almost be a t e l e p a t h song.
uhhh 7/10 maybe?
So I got done listening to this. I still like Nomeansno's first album (Mama) best. I know it's not as dynamic because it's mostly bass and drums, but I feel like they also blended a lot of genres together and I'm not really a hardcore punk fan, anyway.
This is bredy gud.
I do remember that there are some Shpongle enthusiasts in /daily/, that would be up their alleyr.
And the dubs and remixes on the second disc are surprizingly great too.
>mfw I slept through an entire day
It was me. Investigation over.
I get why people like this
but I really really really dont like it. the vocals are some of the most annoying I've ever heard and although I understand what they were going for that doesn't make me like these type of songs
did u do it in ur sleep? i'll forgive you
If you guys want something fun to listen to, try this.
It's the whole album, I liked every track, myself.
>recommend me bands that sound like these second rate bands but make sure they're not them so more like third or fourth rate bands, I can't be caught listening to anything mildly popuar
Yes, as a rule of thumb, if I'm asleep and someone is shitposting it's me. At night I turn into a shitposter, kinda like a werewolf, only not a wolf but a shitposter.
dunno what this is but I'm gonna listen to it
if I had to guess, prog
I think you'll like it. It's 80s alt-rock with a tiny squeeze of New Wave, and maybe like early math rock. Along with some an upbeat and raw, twangy guitar, with a better sense of melody than most.
how is that like a werewolf when you shitpost when you're awake as well
it's more like just being a wolf all the time
it was a good discussion you should be proud
Stoner metal with references to smoking? Oh my!
I actually would enjoy some recs, planning to dedicate a week in February to it but might just do japanese noise rock from any era
Yeah I was just memeing, your link don't work right now though
>Savages - Adore Life
I really really liked Silence Yourself. A lot of aggressive bass lines and, most importantly, Gemma Thompson’s feedback. The latter specifically pokes me in my brains.
The new album is a different experience. There are still pummelling drum/bass duets but there are certain shifts in the vocal and guitar delivery. Jehnny Beth brings in some variety with off-time spoken word sections that accelerate or decelerate the whole pace of the tracks. It is a nice device and I am glad that she brought it in, but I feel like there isn’t a single moment on the album where she actually “energizes” the track. Building up the tempo and bringing the raw screams like she did on “She Will” for example does hurt the record.
Now Gemma delivers something new. A murky and ugly tone that reminded me a lot of Chelsea Wolfe’s new effort. Not quiet doom metal, but it does sound like it is somewhat influenced. I do miss some of the strong clean guitar strums that were on Silence Yourself. I really shouldn’t talk that much about the other album, but that’s all I could think of while listening to this album.
Speaking of Silence Yourself, what made it stand out is the track listing order. After the interlude of Dead Nature bought in a medley-esque finishing with a strong track. On Adore Life, we get a murkier ending with an outlier titled T.I.W.Y.G.. It has a pretty cool song structure with several shifts and showcases the post-punk power these chicks have. It is very groovy but suffers from occasional dull lyrics.The latter are a definite step-down but it’s really not what I got this album for. The murky guitar feedback and badass bass lines is what you get though.
The final comment I want to make is on the closer. Marshall Dear was THE track on Silence Yourself with a menacing and melancholic melodic section mixed with Beth’s cold vocal delivery and a sax section that brought you out of the journey. Mechanics…well it is one of the weakest tracks here. My favourite thing about it was Thompson’s guitar scratches right at the death of the track but the rest was nowhere near the standard Savages set for themselves.
Summing up, cool album that I liked. Lots of murky shit, fantastic guitar (Gemma is cool as shit with all that noisy feedback, I’d hire her for my band any day) and occasional tempo rushes that make me want to run. Good album, I liked it. Not on par with their debut though.
kinda wondering why this couldnt garner more attention/ratings thru dustdevil. im not sure id call it sth like outstanding, yet, but its promising to move towards that direction, at the very least catchy as shit
Hey this wasn't bad at all! Had some songs I do not care at all about but had a couple tracks I really enjoyed. Bang A Gong was my favorite but Mambo Sun and Jeepster are also up there.
Nothing groundbreaking but sometimes a lil simple rock feels good
rate these memes that i got in the mail today
it was only $25 for both did i get a good deal
I completely fell of my chart into an endless hole of glam rock and ambient
New calendar that's going to go along with the circles chart (and the last one on the cunt chart which I might actually do tonight!!) consisting of the start of my exploration into the NWW list.
now help me finish it
Good night /memers/ and see you in a week! I really want to participate in this week's listenalong memery but I'm afraid there is no internet at my house in the mountains. Sorry :(
do the Ono version of the Plastic Ono Band album
Calling Germi and Ableist
Oh nyr, always you and the opposite opinion.
good song and enjoyable album so far =3
Right after I posted that question I looked back at Netflix and my eye settled right on Jesus Camp just as the music I was listening to said Jesus' name. Lo and behold the first response to my question was Jesus Camp. It was calling to me.
I think the film's messages really spoke to me and I'm going to do some thinking about my relationship with Christ
I guess I'm not one to judge, I listened to This Nation's Saving Grace for the first time last night.
Also feel like I should mention that it's now one of my favorite albums.
>Meet the residents
This is pretty wonderful, I wanna relisten before giving it a rating but the hype is to be believed
at first I was largely unimpressed. but, to my great surprise and delight, the album got better as it went on! i'll have to relisten to it soon.
Yeah well I was never a big fan of the calendar thing. If it works for people I guess that's good, but it doesn't really for me. I'll still listen to an album or two a day usually, but I like to pick the albums based on what I'm in the mood for. I still like charts tho.
I prefer to think of the listening I do as post-/daily/. The essential concept of listening to one album per day on a chart is essentially there, but there is more variability in number of albums per day and often albums are listened to without ever being on a chart.
I think neo-/daily/ is more the resurrection of the old /daily/ practices of making calendars and holding tournaments. If anything you're the one that's neo-/daily/.
>Off Minor- The Heat Death of The Universe
Alternates dry, vicious screamo with twinkly meditative math-wank. Not very much else to say about this- it does both pretty well, although it sometimes feels a little like they're sort of forced together in songs where they don't quite fit.
idk, this feels like it's probably going to grow on me in the coming weeks. 6.5/10 for now
yeah. not into it at all i'm afraid- just sounds lifeless and anemic and wanky to me.
i might give them another try in a month or two, but i don't really see what the fuss is beyond the (admittedly impressive) technicality of zach hill's drumming.
Discordance Axis - Jouhou
a really great grind album, with a terrific noise section midway through. i'm not in love with the vocalist at all times, and the band could be better, but if I keep comparing everything to Insect Warfare i'll probably never hear a good grindcore album again. recommended to grind fans.
>thursday is the day where you recover from the hangover from wednesday, which should be bigger than all the hangovers that week, and prepare for friday
Actually, thursday is the drinking day, you underdeveloped bushman. On what planet do you live?
>implying I don't
Only plebs believe this.
on track 3 and things aren't looking so good for krennin.
i searched for noise grind and I found this ludicrous nonsense: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0nQs59eEQs
thing is, it sounds good. what the hell?
The hell is that you have shit taste
>The hell is that you have shit taste
I know, right?
no idea, just found the video and posted it here.
listen to this if you havent: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlMFyxgpGK8
don't know if its just these guys or everyone else in the description of that video also performing
Good to see you loving both of those records n_n my new dank rec is Ghédalia Tazartès - Diasporas. Hope you like it cuz I have no idea if you will but it's certainly unique!!!
That's pretty good stuff
Shit taste is still better than no taste
>Daughter - Not to Disappear
Has indie pop just not changed at all for the last five years? This sounds like Florence + the Machine on downers. Quite trite. Some of the production gets puts to imaginative uses every once in a while but there's little else to recommend this. Especially with lyrics like 'I hate being with you / I should get a dog or something'.
I chose a composer I haven't listened to much of. It begins.
Gimme categories/works etc. and help me fill it out!
>At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command
This had a ton of great tracks but I feel like had they trimmed a little fat off here it would have gotten to the next level for me.
by LIL UGLY MANE
I thought this guy was a joke like lil b, but he's actually great. what the hey. i've been missing out.
is it the same restriction? this is 24m if you leave off the distasteful bonus track.
It's no secret that I enjoy his first three albums a lot. I think he updated singer/guitar player thing with some neat YMO influenced production. Another One was a disappointment though.
ambient with some kitty sounds. could have used more kitty sounds. relaxing, but not very interesting. comfy. almost got a green box.
the mighty erudighty advances
Eat a Peach (1972) by the Allman Brothers Band, recommended by Tripfriend on the spot
I've loved the title and cover of this album for a long time, but never ventured to hear it. It truly sounds as warm and sweet as those things suggest. Eat a Peach is a motley collection of tracks: the first side recorded after leader Duane Allman's death and the last before, with the 30-minute live 'Mountain Jam' as a go-between. As such it feels a little like a box of memories, old snapshots in an album which awaken bittersweet feelings.
That half-hour live jam is not just the centrepiece but also the high point. Every player in this band was talented (it shines off of them) but none of them feel the need to show it, instead hitting the most laid-back tone they can. Jam bands are usually associated in my mind with large crowds and devoted followers, but this feels like an intimate Sunday at home. Every solo, even the drummers' duet, is nuanced but relaxed. The almost fugue-like entry of the soloists sets an atmosphere of co-operation, not competition. The rhythm section pushes gently forward with an especially mobile and wandering bass, whilst one can simply sense the benign smiles on the duelling guitarists' faces. An unexpected triumph.
The rest of the record isn't flawless, but just as gorgeous. The Alllman Brothers strike me as a slightly less goofy Grateful Dead: hear the covers of Sonny Boy Williams II and Muddy Waters here and understand that these aren't shameless rips but heartfelt tributes, however dorky. The originals deserve pride, too, with 'Blue Sky' in particular touting tasteful harmonies (in singing and soloing). Only 'Les Brers in A Minor' sticks out as a half-baked attempt at something almost approaching prog in its theatricality, and this is more than made up for by the rest. The poignant solo by Duane Allman that closes the album reminds me that Eat a Peach is a portrait of a band in transition, but negotiating it with dignity and resilience.
Marion Brown - Marion Brown Quartet (1966)
Avant-jazz that does little to stun. I think that the worst thing an avant-garde record could do is just go through the motions, that's like the opposite of what avant-garde is. There's still some nice stuff here, like the bass playing and the drumming (its Rashied Ali, no shit), and its certainly enjoyable, but overall I'm not sold on this record.
Blind Gary Davis - Harlem Street Singer (1961)
>gospel, country blues, piedmont blues
Holy shit, a blues release that I'm not too big on! This is still good stuff though, Davis' guitar playing his nice and so is his voice, but this is just kinda a run of the mill bluesy gospel record. Every song sounds the same, and there just isn't that much emotion in this release, and that's basically the main reason why I listen to gospel and the blues. "Death Don't Have No Mercy" is obviously killer, though.
i dont know if you know this but i already really love Heavenly's Atta Girl ep, so this was a little bit of an easy rec..
I could see this getting an even "love" or a "just below love" score, which is around where the other album in that round of tournament (Anthony Davis's Dreamtime Variations). Not sure how I could go about a tie breaker, since the last one i did was a little unreliable, plus I already gave jimbon's spot to Tuco so maybe i would give it to one of you if hee doesn't show up? Or maybe I might end up giving this an even higher score than anticipated. tournaments are hard.
Lotta good charts!
Now onto the Zappa reviews!
Ship Arriving to Late was just a short burst of Zappa mediocrity. Contains well-known “Valley Girl” and a little substance in the 14 minute jam, but nothing much here.
Lather was fucking rad. Sounds like the logical conclusion of post-70s pre-80s Zappa, a very underrated era. If you liked Studio Tan, Sleep Dirt, and Zappa in New York, you may very well enjoy this.
Token of His Extreme was actually a very enjoyable recording of Zappa live on TV in 1974. If you like Roxy & Elsewhere and George Duke, this is for you.
Mystery Disc assumed I cared about where the “Willie the Pimp” title came from, and then gave a very boring story from someone completely unrelated to Zappa. A few never-heard tracks, but mostly a disappointment.
Tinseltown Rebelion is a Zappa album if it went to college: Fratty and annoying, but sometimes enjoyable and short bursts of spastic energy. Peaches III is a great rendition of Peaches En Regalia. Again, Zappa needs to shut the fuck up. The panty quilt thing was kind of funny, but I don’t understand if Zappa thinks these unfunny crowd-banter things are supposed to make me want to listen to it again. To me, Zappa’s crowd banter = 90s rap skits. Enjoyable once and never again.
Greasy Love Songs is a shittier Crusing w/ Ruben & the Jets, if you can believe that.
mac is the biggest wasted talent in indie nowadays. he's a phenomenal guitar player and he's certainly got an ear for a catchy melody, but he keeps making the same shit over again and relying on his aesthetic over his music cos that's what he's known for and what will sell.
that being said, 2 is a pretty solid album, salad days had a few good tracks but was mind-numbingly derivative, and another one was just all around lousy. I wanna see him try something new, he's got it in him.
Bout to board ze plane but decided to share onions on what I have been listening to on the way here.
This. Kanker/10 Way too dutch for me. It wasn't bad and was fun, but not for me.
Downloading Jesu/SKM, hope it isn't shit. Otherwise, my whole trip is RUINED.
i'm listening to Le Jardin De Heavenly
that duet with Calvin Johnson is amazing
I'm gonna post the listenalong link and template now so I don't forget it later.
>Ekatarina Velika - Ljubav (1987)
It's a Serbian post-punk/new wave album. It's considered a classic over here but even here it's not too widely known for some reason. I don't know if some of you have already heard it, but anyways, it's a great album that I think needs some more recognition even outside the ex-Yugoslavian area.
Also tell me if I made some errors in the template so that I can fix them before the actual listenalong starts.
I think I seriously just wasn't in the mood for this album. I'll have to come back to it later.
A few seriously interesting moments, but mostly lame-o hullabaloo. Occasionally sounded like a toddler randomly thwacking a MOOG synthesizer (So, "Avant-garde", I guess).
Need album for today!
>Spring Heel Jack - Disappeared
I'm not sure whether I like this record or it leaves me absolutely cold. Spring Heel Jack know what they're doing, creating drum and bass that focuses more on ambience than dance potential, but I wonder if the juxtaposition of crashing beats and ambient, oftentimes jazzy samples can really work. Unlike the works of ambient techno musicians, this type of "dance music", if you will, is too in-your-face to really work as ambient music. While a few tracks are more successful (the very jazzy "Disappeared 1 & 2", "Dying a Little"), the gross of this album can't satisfy me, even if I find certain moments pretty cool and very few mediocre. But then again, I might be seeing things incorrectly and I might love it after giving it more time. For now though, I would rather recommend their earlier, more subtle drum and bass material, or their later, full-on jazz records. 2.5+
>Japan - Gentlemen Take Polaroids
If you like Tin Drum, you'll like this album. In fact, I even dare to say I might like this one more than Tin Drum. Whereas that album has more oriental influences seeping through its music, this album differentiates itself from that one with funkier basslines and the occasional sax, as well as more long songs. "Methods of Dance" is basically the culmination of everything that's right about this album: fantastic bassline, a great variety of sounds being used to give the track an immense depth, addictive melodies, and some of the best sax work going on here. Some of the more ambient tracks, like the ominous "Burning Bridges", also work well. The only complaint I could bring up is that a couple of tracks on the second half of the album aren't quite up to par with the rest, but they're still fine enough to excuse them. In the end I feel like Japan's ability to utilize so many different kinds of sounds and still end up with a coherent pop album shows great skill, and moreover, it's just a lot of fun. 4.0
>Ghédalia Tazartès - Diasporas
Why does this album exist? Tazartès' voice makes no sense, he sounds like a lunatic who lived in a cave somewhere in a Middle Eastern desert and one day decided to leave it, move to Paris, and scream his lungs out because he didn't understand anything around him. Occasionally he sounds like that kind of warped vocal effect that appears on The Ape of Naples, like on the end of "I Don't Get It". The instrumentals, meanwhile, if they are there, are very minimal, droning, and eerie. Nurse With Wound comparisons might be apt (this guy's on the NWW list I believe, is it any wonder?). Still, these songs, if they can even be called songs, are very different from anything else, often just consisting of Tazartès' vocals and percussion samples, other vocal samples, always lo-fi, almost prehistoric, it just doesn't seem to fit within any sort of musical narrative. Giving points for the novelty is something I wouldn't do soon, but in this case, the novelty is so unique that I simply have to be impressed. 4.0-
>Akio Suzuki - Odds and Ends
I feel like for once, I found a music album that doesn't consist of music at all. Suzuki, on this 2-hour album (although it's really more of a compilation of archival material), expressively rejects anything bearing semblance to music. Indeed, this is 2 hours of sound experiments. Every track deals with one or two concepts: on one track, we get piano improvisation, on another we get Suzuki playing on a homemade echo instrument, some tracks sound like he's utilizing wind chimes, the final track is him playing some primitive flute, and more of that kind of stuff. The longest track on here consists mostly of a sample of a goat being pitched and stretched into drones. Suzuki is clearly not concerned with making something that is to be listened to and enjoyed, he's lost in his own world of finding sounds. Maybe this has philosophical potential, but as a record, this isn't terribly exciting. 2.0
good morning daily isn't the sunshine beautiful?
gonna check out the music from Tanzania comp when I get home and finally finish the what's in my bag chart.
i know you don't like the Beatles but you should probably check the Lennon/Plastic Ono Band record along with the Ono/Plastic Ono Band record, they're companions. The Lennon record is still poppy and kinda Beatles-esque but it's more personal and raw than the Beatles' stuff, I think you'd like it.
If you like meems and/or the beach boys and/or beach boys meems come to sync for yet another listenalong of Salute NASCAR
This rating does not include Hot Buttered Xhol which I have no opinion of atm, think I should hear the originals before talking about them (although the NWW version of Radio wasn't anything worthwhile desu)
I fucking just did and you go on, but with the added knowledge that you were slightly ahead b'cus at least the comp didn't end on such a dull nothing.
It has to be done but fuck me this is going to be a long half hour
okay, 30 albums, as youve probably heard a lot, I left out the ones I'm 100% sure you've heard and ones I've recced to you before though.

>Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Yanqui U.X.O
Godspeed kinda evolved with this release, changing the position of the exclamation mark to prove it: this record doesn't feature any spoken word nor field recording, and the emotional variety of its predecessor is abandoned for a more constant melancholic sound. The free improvisation/noise/drone parts are also absent.
Both of these changes don't seem that important, but they actually play a crucial role in the final sound: the absence of "non-musical" bits means that this album is purely instrumental and, to have some variety and to don't become predictable, not every section builds to a crescendo.
The (relatively) static mood creates a big, heavy atmosphere, and it crawls under your skin, changing your mind as it goes on; it gives this record a lot of personality, preventing it to become "Lift Yr. Skinny Fists Again".
The layering is very important: while new instruments are added, the sounds that were already playing change a little in the background. This technique is used almost always in this album, and despite the fact that Godspeed already used it before, it always makes the tracks flow smoothly and grow naturally; it never gets boring, it's always interesting to follow.
The production of Steve Albini makes all the instrument live and fuse together, but it also makes the compositions feel alive and intense; his work here is amazingly spot on.
Motherfucker = redeemer is my second favorite GY!BE song, just after "Storm".
Its strong rhythmic section is incredibly intense, and the little final crescendo may be predictable, but it still gives me goosebumps every time it makes this monolith end.
If you think Godspeed always do the same thing, the same "crescendocore" over and over again, then you haven't actually listened to them.
I thought this would be like Private Parts
i was very wrong
I'm doing american primitivism now. I'm determined to never finish a chart. I got a bunch of these albums from clutnuckle's excellent American Primitivism guide on rym. I'm still open to recs though.
>Daniel Bachman - Grey-Black-Green
A bunch of 5-min songs that kind of wander aimlessly. While that's not inherently a bad thing, something was off about this execution. I left the album feeling absolutely unmoved by any and all of the tracks. Might take another crack at it later, because River was so good.
>Daniel Bachman - River
"Won't You Cross Over to That Other Shore" is one of the greatest things I have ever heard. I was going to write a whole paragraph on this song, but I didn't. gg. The rest of the songs are pretty good, but clearly not as good.
>Elizabeth Cotten - Shake Sugaree
The title track is bliss. The rest is pretty good, but inexplicably sounds a lot like a few dozens variations of "Freight Train".
>Olivier Messiaen - Quatuor pour la fin du temps (as performed by Gil Shaham / Paul Meyer / Jian Wang / Myung-whun Chung)
Written in a nazi POW camp, it's not difficult to see why Messiaen turned to religion and wrote this piece. It's an intense piece in eight movements, signalling the end of times, and considering the dire situation the world was in at the time, maybe Messiaen really did fear the end of times was nigh.
In any case, this chamber piece centers around piano, violin, cello, and clarinet. The clarinet is excellent on this piece, most notably on the third movement, which is a solo clarinet piece. It is not of grandiose intensity or virtue, but the slow tempo melody, played with a lot of long, fade-in notes, is nonetheless extremely suspenseful. This type of suspense is brought back several times. On the fifth movement, the cello takes a similar approach, but is quickly resolved by the piano, turning suspense into calm beauty. It sends shivers down my spine. The next movement, conversely, is very ominous, utilizing dissonance and a sometimes staccato rhythm to signal its doom. The movement that follows is a continuation of this mood, but with more hopeful elements sounding through in, for example, the fluid piano playing. Finally, the last movement returns to the purity of the fifth, absolutely gorgeous.
While the start might not be extremely captivating, I can safely say I liked all of this piece, and not only that, but most of it I loved. It hits home in all the right ways: picturesque, atmospheric, suspenseful, climatic, juxtaposing both the beautiful and the ugly without ever feeling forced or inconsistent. It is the suffering of a man during wartime and his turn to faith as a result, poured into musical form. 4.0+
Wow, one would almost think that you've never listened to music outside of what people have told you is good in /daily/ threads.
Hopefully I achieve a bit of bad emotions in you, motivating you to actually read a fucking book on the subject or something so you might develop your ways of expressing yourself.
>motivating you to actually read a fucking book on the subject
I could have had a better knowledge of it if I gave a fuck during 3 years of music classes on high school but I didn't. It really doesn't interest me at all whether I can express my thoughts on certain pieces of music with by-the-books terminology and unless you can explain me why I should care, chances are I'll kindly ignore you because your kind of people bores me.
>unless you can explain me why I should care
Because it would help you stop looking like a drooling retard every time you try (and you do actually try, that's the worst of it) to write "reviews" of music. The most hilarious thing here though, is that you write "by-the-books terminology", as if you think you're above such a thing, and would be much better off coming up with terms on your own. But that's wrong, and probably deep inside you know it.
Is it of any importance what words I use to describe what I took away from the music? For all I care, as long as the general message is clear, I couldn't give a toss with what words I managed to describe it. The only people I'm actually pissing off with my reviews is your kind, and I feast on the yummy tears of your kind.
Pic related, it's you. Looking forward on more of your commentary in the future, my friend. :^)
The message isn't clear. You'd never see a behaviourist refuse to read a book to understand the terminology and apply it when explaining something, why would you be any different with music?
>The only people I'm actually pissing off with my reviews is your kind
You're right, all the other moronic and uneducated people like yourself lap your shit up and think it's a great review. You're just like Pitchfork without an audience, isn't that great?
In the uneducated and moronic masses, perhaps. No one who actually bothered to read a book or two would ever use such terminology. Unless they're talking about Geoff Smith. PS don't listen to Geoff Smith.
who are all these new trips what the fuck
i only recognize hampie and benjie
did i leave the board for that long?
also what are you listening to?
toot toots by brown people from the east played in london
Looks like someone refused to read a book
(yes, it's a meme, it's my meme, I would know)

I am recommending this to you /daily/
I'm better at it than those who use strictly correct musical terminology. To what end is a review that conveys absolutely no message to the masses? Why should I write a review that can only be understood by people with a lot of background in music theory, on a board where most people lack that? Your elitism is not only foolish because of how misguided the idea is that you need knowledge of music theory to appreciate certain pieces of music, but also because you figure that it is imperative that one needs this knowledge in order to even discuss it. Swerve.
By the by, I mostly write these things because I like to order my thoughts on an album. I might not use muh terminology, but the mere fact that I reminisce on what happened in the music forces me to listen to it closely and get a clearer picture of the piece as a whole.
Thanks, your chart looks like you looked at a single second album from some jazz artists, mixed with some classical albums often mentioned here, two /mu/core albums and some trad, which to my knowledge could be very fucking basic, because I know nothing about it.
>I'm better at it than those who use strictly correct musical terminology
Oh my god
I can barely contain my laughter.
You are not better than anyone at conveying this message. Someone with a proper education will be much better than you, not only by virtue of using proper terminology (and being able to explain it to people who don't know - how neat is that?), but by actually knowing what the fuck is going on in a piece. You don't have the historical background to know why a piece was important in that sense; you don't have the theoretical knowledge to know why it would be important in that sense; you don't have the breadth of knowledge needed to compare or analyse or discuss any music, much less something by Messiaen.
>have 84 zipped records on my download folder and 2lazy to add them to library because windows suck and to my knowledge there's no way to do it in a way that doesn't take like 10 minutes
it's a bunch of nip wank too, why am I so lazy
this general isn't that bad and I think it would take a lot quite a bit to turn me to the dark side
you could try sunn or drone Boris but I'm sure you've already heard that
Even your pathetic attempt at an insult makes my chart sound way more varied, interesting and generally better than your own list. Nice try, I suppose?
>put in foobar
>use file operations to move to library
>actually using linux for anything but niche applications
using musicbee but the steps are very similar.
still unless I have a shitty version of 7zip the unzip doesn't work on multiple files
I use linux for everything except music because I still haven't purchased a hard drive to keep my music and I sure as hell won't try to move all my music to my linux laptop
>not using linux for everything except gaming
when you say Earth do you mean psych rock Earth or Earth 2 Earth
something I never bothered researching because this unzipping problem only exists when I'm on windows which is almost never for anything other than music
didn't know it had a unzipping multiple files option thanks hampy
I sure love not having access to programs such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Suite and anything else that is actually useful for anyone who uses their computer for anything other than jacking off to anime porn (and some niche applications).
I enjoy music without giving a shit about its supposed historical importance and there's nothing you can do to stop me. You can flaunt your supposed superiority in terms of knowledge of music theory and history, but what does it accomplish? You are so deluded it hurts. The only thing you are accomplishing by continuing to reply, is showing how arrogant and misguided you are.
>if you're not listening to the version with the tacked on tracks from a completely different period of Ashley's work you're not experiencing the original properly
wew lad I really laughed at this one. Why you would not just use Latex for everything and LibreOffice when you can't use Latex is beyond me.
>and anything else that is actually useful for anyone who uses their computer for anything other than jacking off to anime porn (and some niche applications).
are you actually this blind? just because you clearly haven't seen shit that linux can do doesn't mean it only has those uses.
of course I'm talking about from the perspective of someone who basically needs linux but I assure you if you would dive into it you would realize how horrible windows is for anything BUT gaming
>it's a hampus thread
time to dump stuff until the thread dies
here is a rare picture or an american prototype bomber with engines based on the propulsio ntechniques used with 40s submarines.
You can enjoy whatever you want, just stop writing reviews about it :^)
Latex is pretty worthless when it comes to composing text, and anyone who is serious about the layout and what have you of the text will use something like InDesign instead. Latex is a meme. Also Office is not the same as Word, my friends. Enjoy using second-hand shit programs as a replacement for the vastly superior Excel.
(Latex is actually pretty good, but it doesn't replace Office).
I've used Linux a fair bit. I ran Arch on my old netbook because I wanted a minimal performance profile. If I had continued to use that netbook I would've probably compiled something myself for better performance (le gentoo meme). That's one of the niche uses where it's actually useful.
Every thread is a hampus thread
Cool. This is a rare old picture of Django, the main character of the Tarantino movie "Django Unchained."
basic schematics for the germain Heinkel Lerche, Luftwaffe prototype for a vertical takeoff capable plane with the advantage of vertical takeoff (obviously) and the issues of vertical landing.
>it's an autist being angry at another autist post
>You can enjoy whatever you want, just stop writing reviews about it :^)
This tbqh familia.
One more picture of the Heinkel Lerche. As you can see by the people on the ground, the air deplacement of the Lerche is fairly small and mostly localized in a following air column which might make it nice to see the takeoff,but also made it considerably harder to manuver
if you have used it, I don't understand how you are so wrong on this
I don't use Excel to the level where having LibreOffice instead Excel makes any difference at all
Latex is not a meme and for me it's pretty much the only thing I need. of course there could be a field where it's worse than Word, I just don't know it
Two views and characteristics of the Heinkel 111 Zwiling (HE 111-Z), a project based on the already existing and vastly used HE 111 bomber.
Dump something interesting and write something nice about it instead you meme.
Like this, for example. This photo is actually over 100 years old, taken in 1910 by Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky, a pioneer of colour photography. Since colour film wasn't actually invented at the time, Sergey did three different exposures, using different colour filters, and then projected onto a screen. This made near truecolour photography possible. Since each colour had to be on a different exposure, you get some fun effects on moving items, such as the water in the background here.
Literally any field that deals with design, or could benefit from dealing with design (pretty much all of them).
One more picture of the HE 111-Z. The main purpose of the twin-frames was to increase the quantity of bombs that could be carried in a single flight in order to make ombing operations more efficient while using less fuel and mobilizing less planes.
However due to the lack of chain production and aiming issues, the model was barely used and its role was limited to towing other vehicules due to its massive engine power.
Agreed that InDesign is pretty nice. The only problem is that it costs $$ so lots of grad students and professors use LaTeX. I wrote my dissertation in LaTeX and didn't find it to inhibit my ability to compose text.
This one would actually be more interesting as it showcases a now rare form of local dagestani headgear.
You're not the only fig here who occsionally goes to /his/ y'know.
And if you cannot be interested in WWII era prototypes, it only shows how bad your taste is.
Adobe Suite isn't expensive now that you have creative cloud subscription service. Latex is pretty great when it comes to formatting large amounts of text in a consistent manner, with citations, graphs, etc.
Literally never went to /his/ after the day the board was created.
One of the few remaining photos of the french 1929 Dylan & Balacan 70 prototype.the plane was one of the first intended for troops deployment and with parachuting in mind. however the large room for cargo was also designed to be refitted if necessary, leading to the prototype having a salon with severail armchairs and a table on board, a pattent that would, had the plane been chain produced, used for officers transport.
Basic schematics for the experimental Messerschmit 1101, one of the first planes designed with variable sweep wings.
The idea behind the variable sweep was to cope with an important problem with early jet fighters.
At this point, the wings were still seen as lo ng and narrow instead of the later triangular shape, making them prone to break at high speeds when dealing with important air movement and turbulences. that tended to happen a lot during takeoff, and was even more of a proble mas the early jets needed to reach a very high speed to take off.
This the variable sweep : with a reduced sweep during takeoff, the wings were less likely to break or bend, and the sweep could be increased once the plane reaches its cruising speed so it gains in stability.
it a qt owl
This design was however never tested as the project dragged in its conceptual phase until 1944, to the point that the american troops discovered the devlopment facility Oberammergau where the prototype was.
Finding the wings of the prototype disattached as they were did surprize the americans who sized the plane and brought it back to the United States where it was given to the Bell Aircraft Corporation that then used the basic ideas and concepts to create the Bell X5 in 1951, fixing some design flaws of the Messerschmit engineers.
Hampus brings out the best of you /daily/.
Among these ws the placement of the exit opening of the reactor, close to the pilots cockpit and long unter the tail of the plane. The plane was not intended to fly for extended periods of time due to ample fuel consumption and the decision to stop using acid fuel, but the position of this large mouth could on the long run and after several flights have damaged the tail of the plane.
Despte never actually flying, the Me 1101 did in a way pioneer a new era for fighters and jet planes by introducing the concept of variable sweep that then became a major design element for jet fighters, and is still widely used to this day.
The LaTeX love in this thread is getting me hard boys
Thanks again, what I meant was that your chart looked like you had done your utter best like it wasn't pure spoonfeeding by this thread.
Speaking of acid fuel, here is a model of the Messerschmit 263, another jet project that did not fly, hopefuly as one of its innovation was the use of a highly acid fuel that was much more volatile than the previously used one. With said fuel, any single burst could provide ample acceleration and the plane was even designed to be able to burn most of its fuel for one major push. the issue was that the fuel was very acid and there was a constant risk of it piercing through its tank and entering the cockpit,or attaching other vital systems.
When the americans discovered the three prototypes in 1945, one of thm was kept and the two other were handed to the russians who studied them carefuly and fiwed some issues with the poor placement of the center og gravity that made the plane constantly pull upward, as wel las a replacement fuel. This helped them design the I-270 jet in 1946
Another vertical takeoff capable plane, the Lockheed xfv-1, that learned the lessons of its predecessors and, during its test flights, was equipped with the necessary gear to land horizontally. The project was put together the show the USAF the pros of vertical takeoff for planes, but even though the plane showcased an impressive rate of climb and a very satisfactoy ceiling for its time, using a propeller while jets were becoming the norm made it outdated before its time due to its low speed.
A photo of the test flight of the flying car Convair. despite its futuristic convept and appearence, it never made it to production.
And I'm out. have a nice day/evening/night, friends and figs of /daily/
