It's the 24nd of janvier
The point of these threads, is to encourage people to look for new and interesting music. We do this by listening to, and ideally discussing albums we've never heard before. Many of us already listen to new music daily, these people are in it to venture "out of their comfort zone" by listening to albums they otherwise wouldn't have, or just to have a good time.
We track our progress using calendars, which we fill with the albums we listen to on each day and a rating of some sort for all of them. There are templates in the following posts. We encourage you to write the albums' titles and the artists' names somewhere on your calendar. We don't have any tools for creating these calendars, we use simple image editing softwares. You can predetermine a schedule for a month or you can report back on whatever album you randomly picked every day. Many of us make our schedules interesting in various way, popular ones being genre restrictions, new releases, and recs from the /daily/ community.
We had a plug.dj room, which we used to shitpost for a little while. It's now forever empty, so if you want to spend a little time there, it is too late. You can find the temporary substitute here though:
no one should really be able to start the threads, but usually one of /daily/'s dedicated trips starts them anyways.
We encourage you to start it, just be sure to use the standard OP.

>Sun Kil Moon & Jesu - Sun Kil Moon/Jesu
This is /blog/: the album. Kozelek's words are abysmal, more often than not listing his plans for the day or namedropping famous people he's seen recently. He even reads (and laughs at) his fanmail, and on more than just one track. The support is a little fairer, especially as an ethereal synth-driven backing. But also when turning to super tedious and fuzzed out drone guitars, even driving at eye-wateringly repetitive riffs - simply because they render Kozelek's awful lyrics unintelligible. Legitimately terrible.
Anyone know what genre this is?
This guys going to be in a local bar on friday, going with the gf. Feels good man
Jorge Ben - Fôrça bruta (1970)
>samba-soul, samba-rock, MPB
Possibly the happiest, most fun record I've ever heard. I'm not entirely sold on samba as a genre, and the mixture of rock with the danceability of samba is kindasorta odd, but the music here is really happy, and the melodies are absolutely spectacular. The production as well, densely layered but without being too busy. The genre mixtures are a bit odd, and some songs don't hit their mark, but this is definitely a very good record. Gonna be checking out Ben's other stuff soon.
Got another set of reviews, again playing catch up
>Pelt - Ayahuasca
This one was pretty good. Natkingcole, you were right about this one. Two hours of desert-land psychedelic drone with some nice folk stuff in there. I gotta admit the first time I heard "close the fuckin door man the cats!" I laughed out loud a bit. My favorite song was probably Raga Called John Pt. 2. 8/10 overall.
>Espers - II
This one was another really good one. Had a nice string of stand-outs later this week. So this one was more psych folk, but with a shoegazey twist to it, which was welcome for me. The female vocals were a nice element to their sound as a whole too. Some of it reminded me of The Seer by Swans to be honest. Favorite song was probably Widow's Weed. 8/10 overall.
>No-Neck Blues Band - Sticks and Stones May Break my Bones but Names Will Never Hurt me
When this album started out with like five minutes of totally unorganized free improv, I groaned because I thought it was going to be for the entire duration. I was happy it got a little more organized. It's not that I don't like free form shit, but this was just unpleasant to listen to at first. I really liked the drawn out free folk songs, and I even got some Incredible String Band vibes at times. Favorite song was probably Untitled :^). 8/10 overall.
And for today's...
>Six Organs of Admittance - Dark Noontide
This was a nice listen, but I can't help but feel this psychedelic drone stuff is pretty samey as a whole, but luckily this album wasn't just those parts. I saw someone's description of listening to this album is like walking through a desert. I think I agree with that, and the nice psych folk songs served, for me at least, as nice little oases in the middle of a drugged out Sahara expedition. Favorite song was probably This Hand. 7.5/10 overall.
I'll definitely be listening to these ones in particular more in the future. Tomorrow's supposed to be a classic of psych folk. If it's anything similar to ISB I'm hype.
What a beautiful meme that could flash on the screen in the blink of an eye and be gone from me
Your dedication is commendable
That looks like a really fun chart. Matrix 5 is mostly excellent.
What's that album on the 31st?
>Richard Bishop - Salvador Kali
A really eclectic range of styles going on here. Burning Caravan engages in a gypsy jazz type sound while Rasheed showcases a lightning quick, chirpy american primitive guitar for over 10 minutes. Cadaques sounds flamenco-ish, and is cheesy enough that it belongs in a Dos Equis commercial. Pedro's Last Ride is similar, but for two guitars (maybe?). Al-Darazi is some 14 minutes of piano playing, (possible with two pianos) heavy on the cluster chords. Hadley is some Fahey-sounding guitar with a western vibe. Rose Room sounds like ragtime guitar, possibly featuring a banjo. Kamakhya is a 10-minute guitar excursion that's really hard to pin down stylistically, but interestingly incorporates what sounds like an accordion in the background. It could be anything that could create a soft drone, but it has that wheezing accordion sound. The final song, Morella, has an acoustic guitar doing some relatively standard acoustic guitar playing with a ghostly reverbed guitar playing overhead.
It's a super impressive collection of styles, but lacks a cohesive atmosphere. I mean, the guitar playing somehow sounds somewhat similar across the tracks, but it really can't pick a mood. Also, the longer tracks tend to drag a bit.
Sweet, thanks. Sounds cool.
Bill Evans and Jim Hall
Absolutely beautiful, the guitar and piano interplay like nothing else I've ever heard. Also, this is probably my favorite album cover ever
>all artists - music
some really nice playing, lots of emotional expression, especially in the vocals. wildly inconsistent though, and a lot of parts dragged to high heaven. still recommended listening.
I present my most recent effort in starting charts it's unlikely I'll finish
12 randomly selected /daily/ menaces (the first 12 I found the rym of), and 12 randomly selected 5s (and I think in one case a 4.5)
Let's see how 5 charts at once goes
Prima Edizione (1999) by Todd Edwards, recommended by edcvghjklpoiu
Though I was a little surprised to see this tagged as both garage and house, it's not an unhappy or tense marriage. Prima Edizione certainly leans more heavily to the house side, though, with almost every track deploying those ubiquitous thudding four-on-the-floor kicks and static, moderate tempi, rather than garage's more skittering hats and turbocharged rhythms. The result is pretty satisfying, managing to curb the dull and pounding beats with an irresistible shuffle feel.
Edwards is mining for groove, no doubt, but he's got a bag of idiosyncratic tricks to keep any one track from going stale. Rarely content to sit on one progression or section, he tends to adapt loose verse-refrain structures that do a lot of work for retaining energy and interest. His approach to vocal sampling, often rhythmically chopping and throwing disparate voices against each other in quick succession, is very familiar now but must have been breathtaking in 1999, and still carries some of that raw pioneer feel. I love his chromatic, even lush harmonies, too - the second 'ambient' version of 'Fly Away' seems to be modelled explicitly on acid jazz, and doesn't do a bad job of it. Elsewhere he draws on tropes as far out as disco ('Look Out') with less success, and his samples on the whole are a little uncomfortable in their constant referral to Jesus and images of Christianity.
It's a compelling listen with a couple of astonishing tracks that hold up well even by today's standards ('Sunshine : Sunrise' & 'Steal Your Heart'), and although it falls down like so many of its peers simply for being too long and undifferentiated it still elicits warm praise from both my head and my feet.
loads of good albums on there
i just need Ayyblien's rec and then we can get started on round 2!
bls vote :DDDDDD
Oh damn, had no idea I introduced you to it. I just assumed Raz turned every else on to it after his review two years ago. We'll have to have a listen along when we see animal collective one day
catch-up on yesterday:
Supreme Dicks- the unexamined life
this record carries an identity compromised almost entirely of quirks and it's somewhat eluding a proper definition from me apart from "experimental indie".
I like it a lot.
I can hear so many aspects of other records that I like. there's some ugly, lo-fi, out-of-tune bits that are reminiscent of the early modest mouse tapes that were distributed to friends of the band (93-94) or the first destroyer album (96). some sections sound like In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (98).
however, the album doesn't always fit the identity of these indie rock acts. the 9-minute closer sounds like swans, and not even the then-recent 80's swans- more like the mid-90's/soundtracks for the blind era swans. some sections sound pulled from Jackie-o motherfucker's Fig. 5 ('00).
there's even clear post-rock shades- from GY!BE (debuted '97) to dirty three's ocean songs ('98). even Long Fin Killie's Houdini ('95).
i'm listing all these because i'm just so very shocked that The Unexamined Life reminds me so strongly of music that didn't yet exist- and seriously contends with them in terms of quality. not to suggest it's unlike music that preceded it- there's more than a few similarities to Slint's Spiderland ('91). but it's startling!
one of the most impressive aspects of this album is that, despite constantly shifting styles, it remains cohesive and maintains it's identity.
if you enjoy even one of the acts listed about, strongly consider listening to this record.
i'm not sure how to rate it yet.
I'm digging this album - what are your thoughts /daily/?
I saw an OP with that album cover and they said it was the 2016 AOTY. I'm guessing they weren't exactly wrong about it if you're liking it.
We all know you're just droning yamir, this is just embarrassing now
I NEED to see Brian before he dies next year. Screen cap this.
It's the fucking tits man. Glad you liked it. That Dark Noontide album isn't bad either by the way.
Connan Mockasin- Forever Dolphin Love
Mac Demarco but a whole lot weirder and a whole lot better
Chairlift? The group that made the Bruises song? I need to hear this soon then.
Bananas as a good thing? That record changed my perspective on what albums could be the same way Aeroplane did.
Do your favorite albums tend to display a colorful amount of variety too? After discussing it with SDC I'm almost completely convinced the best records always have that in common.
Kites stands out among the sea of noise artists for his sheer dedication in attempting to convey something within his albums, the strongest being his persistence on drawing out beauty from the genre and not only textures. Dude I'm really glad you enjoyed it, that's pretty much just the conclusion I want everyone to come to when they hear it.
My favorite album is Mount Eerie, and I'd definitely say that has some variety in it. Some of my other favorites are SAW II and Tired Sounds of Stars of the Lid, which aren't that varied, but still excellent imo. Of course, Soundtracks for the Blind is really varied. So I guess that's true in some cases.
word thanks (really strange so far but i'm digging it)
very limited, i havent listened to much hip hop. here are some artists i really like:
eyedea & abilities, cannibal ox, company flow, binary star, dalek, illogic, nas, del the funkee homosapien, madvillian, el-p (production-wise), brother ali, aesop rock. these are just the few that came to my mind in an instant, there are other artists i've listened to but haven't "connected" to yet.
i guess it's a safe bet to say i like either really jazzy production or experimental/noisy/psychedelic production. i prefer lyrics with meaning but i don't mind punchline rap so as long as it's not too obnoxious. i'm down for anything.
Shellac- At Action Park
Minimal sounding noise rock
a cool concept, alright execution
that drumming though, ooh lord that's the stuff
Tried to avoid too many big names, but I'm really not that knowledgable in hip hop.

Since you're pretty new to the genre, cover the basics first, which can be found on any /mu/ essentials chart. My favorite hip hop album is definitely 'It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back' by Public Enemy. Would rec, if you haven't already heard that. Close second goes to either the obvious Constructus Corp album, or GZA's liquid swords.
>too bad they broke up
not so fast
>word thanks (really strange so far but i'm digging it)
It's my favorite, if you find yourself in love with it some day, find me in /daily/ and I'll have a flow chart for you
Also seconding >>61975670 , DJ Screw is great
However I would recommend his Codeine Fiend tape
Damn, well thankfully they're still releasing another album this year. If AYI pops in the thread he'd be the best person to discuss hip hop with if you're looking for somebody with an in-depth history of the genre. Either him or Curren$y.
I try to keep on the positive about that. You're right, there's no other way I'm going to learn what I like and what I don't unless i do it first.
I want to see this bad art.
Listening to my Sunday album already. Breddy gud so far.
Frank Zappa Plays the Music of... was like 4 songs with two versions of each - the live version and the album version. Very unnecessary release. Still has Watermelon in Easter Hay, so I can't hate it THAT much.
Everything Is Healing Nicely is a somewhat less terrible version of the Yellow Shark. Slightly entertaining, but mostly just a letdown.
Joe's Corsage and QuAUDIOPHILIAc felt like true Zappa archives: interesting stuff on both stuffed with original songs.
Trance-Fusion was like guitar, but with all originals and was genuinely entertaining. Skip over the "guitar" and "shut up" releases and just listen to this if you want some Zappa guitar mastery.
Understanding America was possibly the most unnecessary release I've heard in my life. Only a few minutes of original shit on a 2+ hour release that are supposed to be "Zappa's original concept for the Mothers' early music being one album." Give me a fucking break. Also, I thought I got a bad rip because the quality was so poor. NOPE. The geniuses over at the Zappa family trust just assembled shittier masters of the songs and put them on this compilation.
They didn't even fucking try.
Oh, and remember how I keep complaining about how some of these have spoken word stories with no purpose other than to fill an album with "original" Zappa recordings?
Well Joe's XMASage is an album full of that. It's advertised as "The Mothers recordings before the release of Freak Out." Well, all they had recorded were a few radio spots and band conversations.
and also made one edit to the february chart.
will post january when it's done, still catching up, oy.
Fuck, Sunrise of the Planetary Dream collector is a great song. I heard The Kronos Quartet do Cadenza on the Night Plane a while before I decided to listen to this, I don't know why I waited so long to listen to this album though, it's so damn good.
Kerr and Givingbear need yur recs
Have you listened to Starsailor?

Shoji Aketagawa, Kan Mikami & Toshiaki Ishizuka - Daikanjyo
i was submitting the winner god calm down.
>Lil Ugly Mane - Prelude to Panopticon: "On Doing an Evil Deed Blues"
Travis/Shawn Kemp’s production is almost totally abandoning its Memphis roots, in favor of a more ethereal style: the extensive use of effects and its relatively slow tempo makes it feel very distant, calm; I would say “heavenly”, but I don’t think that it’s the correct word.
This track is divided in three segments: the first contains a sample that almost sums up Lil Ugly Mane evolution, with “I'm at the table like the Godfather, smoking a dutch” bringing to mind his more southern and “gangsta” sound of his first releases, and “Life on earth is just a death sentence” being kind of a premonition of the self-destructive nihilism of “Oblivion Access”.
The middle part contains a beautiful dreamy vocal sample, with a big drum machine and inventive layering. This section has Travis’ raps and occupies the majority of this track.
This is supposed to be Lil Ugly Mane’s final track before “Oblivion Access”, and it closes with a sample from a song by The Carter Family; a female voice sings “Murdered upon the railroad and laid in a lonesome grave”. Synths and drum machine close everything.
“You and I have some things to discuss!”
This samples opens the track in the most perfect way possible.
This is Lil Ugly Mane’s story, narrating everything from when he started rapping Raekwon’s rhymes in front of a mirror, to when he started beginning making beats, to when he started writing his own lyrics. He never did it for money or success, he did it because he loved it. He is aware that his music won’t ever achieve mainstream success, because of the unique style, but also because Travis never wanted to appeal to the masses.
He went through every phase during his career in the music industry, he started with numerous influences, and slowly he began developing his own style, he made a lot of mistakes, he doubted himself, but he continued to do it.
The bridge summarizes his stylistic evolution and his influences.
The hook summarizes everything he did.
I love this. I simply love this.
The production is excellent and atmospheric, and the introspective lyrics are incredibly relatable, at least for me.
It hits hard, but in the way you might expect.
Well I've been getting into death and grind more than anything as of late but I'm also looking to get into black metal without running into memes and something like Ne Obliviscaris would be appreciated.
Not a good start.
Giving Crescent a listen right now, hopefully that'll go better!

>Upgrade & Afterlife
Brooding, stripped down and, above all, droney post-primitivism. Angular, occasionally dissonant acoustic instrumentation clashes with shots of electronic noise and tape music experiments, with mixed results. Often this record feels jarring and alienating, sometimes it veers into relaxed Fahey-esque territory, sometimes it nearly sounds like a conventional folk record. The oddball vocals take some time to adjust to but when they appear, they fit well into the mood of the music itself.
I guess I'd have loved some more conventional melodicism, as at times the angular melodies and dissonance can be overbearing but luckily it does a good job at interjecting some more modest, less shaky songs surrounding the more challenging pieces (the way The Relay serves as a breather after the tribal post-rock explorations of Hello Spiral is absolutely fantastic).

Bit of a long shot, but I think you'd like K. Frimpong And His Cubano Fiestas.
Yep, sums up /daily/ "reviews" quite well.

Backpatting and circlejerking over a handful of albums while pretending to be far superior to the rest of /mu/ because they all listen to the same shit, and people here don't, right?! RIGHT?! Also taking yourself far too seriously, which makes them prime trolling candidates.

No, it's just that you're dumb. It's avant to you if it's different from what you've heard.

I still don't. I only listen to music that seems interesting to me.
It's actually just a chart of quote unquote challenging music, hampus is well within his rights, regardless of any assumptions he might make, electronic music is something I have dabbled in, it might be that I've heard Progressive House before when I was younger but I called it something different like epic_electro_mix_2006

I saw Sissy Spacek live last year, I've seen John Wiese play solo a bunch of times but seeing his band Sissy Spacek play I was pretty blown away at how good they were. I guess I was just writing them off as a side project.
>music using a spacebar as the primary instrument is anything but electronic music
How many times can people post the same fucking meme until they start realizing it is not funny, has never been funny, and never will be funny?
How is a band of talentless halfwits like the gerogerigeri remotely "avant-garde"? Not knowing what you're doing is not avant-garde, in case anyone here thinks it somehow is.
what is all this calendar stuff? how do you guys actually find new music to put on your calendar? I just download a shit ton of stuff and get around to it eventually in my downloads folder.

PC Music x DISown Radio (2014), recommended by Kanzler
I don't want to rehearse the whole PC Music spiel here, even though this is the first bona fide PC Music I've listened to. Suffice it to say that this mixtape - cut into six 10min blocks curated by six of the label's artists - is as much conceptual art as it is a music project. Determining exactly what the meaning of it all might be is half of the fun. It is fun! Though all six segments seem to be playing with the same ideas (whilst successfully retaining their own identities), the content and techniques being bounced off of each other are so multitudinous, so heterogeneous, that it's hard to be anything but baffled. Time-stretched pop songs morph into MIDI sequences, and mind-numbing shoutouts compete with disorientating genre switches (of which GFOTY's move from Baroque slow movement to supercharged bass is an extreme example). I think the key might be to recognise that each artist is pursuing their own more or less incomprehensible concept, but producing something that meshes almost imperceptibly with the wider mixtape.
Which says little for the quality, ultimately. Though there are pockets of genius to be found throughout, almost none of these mixes really find a sweet spot to sit on. That's not the aim, or so it would appear. You have to take it as it comes: as a semi-serious obsession for hyperactive novelty. The exception is Kane West's closing segment, which actually does outshine the rest in both concept and execution - this was the only part that both made me laugh (it's totally bewildering) and nailed a groove. It troubles me only a little that there are so many jokes that I simply don't get - at one point there's a very shit MIDI reconstruction of Burial's 'Arcangel' - but I resign myself to this after the fact.
So let nobody say that this isn't a fascinating (and alienating) listen. Whether it's actually any good - as music, as concept art - seems irrelevant after that.
I'm actually a peasant from 1905 transported through time to shitpost on fourchan, so no, I never had a formal education

There's a hilbilly gathering for people driving "EPAs" in Östersund next month. Everyone's going to be 15-18 years old with these horribly shitty cars, drinking light beer and using snus, playing music as loud as they can on their massive subwoofers (treble is for losers, apparently) while they burnout on a parking lot, talk about immigrants and hate on women.
Should I go there and see if I can snag some fun photos, or should I fear for my life (and general integrity) and stay home?
It'll probably look something like this. It's a 2.5km walk from where I live, but it might be worth it.
Enjoyed Crescent, its atmosphere reminds me of Closer a lot, and in general it sounds like it was made in the 80s, which didn't bother me. Really good work with the synths, spooked me good
I was actually thinking of doing some serious photography there. Since there will be a bunch of meme cars there with LEDs and lots of burnout smoke, it might be possible to get something that looks sort of cool, even though the cars are basically mopeds in disguise.
f(x) - Pink Tape (2013)
Fuck me, I just listened to a k-pop album. And shockingly, I didn't hate it! A lot of it is bland, uninspired pop music, but some of the tracks here are pretty darn good. "Airplane" is particularly great. But the rest just kinda falls into generic pop music, and there's a few tracks here that try to be harder and more hip hop-influenced than the others, and they're just kinda embarassing.
you should listen to this sometime.
>Pyramids - s/t
I hate to use experimental to tag something like this and post-rock doesn't come close to hint at what genre this would fall under. Genre-wise this is all over the place with black metal meets shoegaze but it doesn't quite result in post-metal seeing that there is a clear separation of the two. Hints of post-rock, ambient, and industrial that comes in at waves and rolls back never becoming too rooted into any categories. Overall the music beautiful, distant, and haunting. A really great listen.
Hey folks, I'm gonna be doing my radio show from 12:50-1:40 EST (about an hour from now). The weird time period is because I have a thing to do at 2:00. I'll be playing some of my favorite tracks from 2015, probably some stuff you've heard, probably some stuff you haven't, probably all stuff you've heard of. Here's the link: http://wqhs6.vpul.upenn.edu:8000/listen
>Mark Fry - Dreaming With Alice
This was awesome. It sounds like Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, but not as medieval sounding. Again, a lot of the tracks sound densely layered here. Though it could be the bass, but they sound really full. The version I listened to has the Dreaming With Alice track's verses interspersed between the other tracks, which is interesting. Not sure how it was in the original, but it works well in this case. Lyrics are filled with fantasy lyrics, pretty common I'd say for early psych folk, but that's one of the reasons I like it anyway. The percussion is pretty sparse through all the tracks, but most of these tracks are slower in tempo, so it's not that necessary. This album is also guitar arps galore, one of my musical fetishes. One of the last tracks on this album, Mandolin Man, pulls out all the stops for me. It starts off quieter, then it goes into a full-blown, fuzzed out heavy psych jam. I was bobbing my head to it the whole time. Highly reccing and enjoying this album. Fav song is Mandolin Man. 8.5/10 overall.
Tomorrow we got Lorren Mazzacane Connors. Not sure what to expect, but we'll see...
I've seen him live once or twice - he's an engaging and intense performer (and very friendly).
I find the post Fahey revival mostly pretty dull. Everyone seemed to want a piece of him and his whole crypto-spiritual act (the most blatant example being Jack Rose but also Glenn Jones and Jim O'Rourke for a while). Bishop at least brought tome intensity to the whole thing.
bugskull was really weird. not bad, but not for me, either
>Chairlift - Moth
Top class pop. The attention to detail, songwriting, and production are almost astonishing in places, and every song pulls its weight - several of the singles go far beyond that too. Highly recommended.
Is Kånken the best backpack? I need a new one and think I might order one. Probably in this colour or navy. Black would be good but it's also a little bit boring.
wait so the production really is that bad?
this is only really good in a party atmosphere
It's cool, and I haven't heard the stuff you're playing before

Hijokaidan x Jun Togawa - Togawa Kaidan [v0]
this legit makes me feel bad. i feel like most records at least deserve a listen, but sadly i have to prioritize.
it's weird to think that statistically, there are like 10000 records out there that i would consider one of my favorites if i heard them, but i'm only going to be able to hear like 500 at most.
Beautiful violin melodies. It's a dark record, even the inclusion of jumpy, danceable moments doesn't disrupt the overall melancholic vibe. But don't think it's boring, it's never boring.
woah almost clicked that link *wipes sweat*
What's up brehs?
Listened to a bunch of albums again from my chart, nothing really interesting. The The Verve record was less good than I remembered. I think the best (except for Kyuss) from this calendar is yet to come. Helloween in particular was very disappointing. I expected a more interesting album from this praised band.
That's kind of bullshit and not true? Like bro you have your whole life ahead of you, And listening to say 1000 records doesn't take that much time, if you're smart about what you listen to you could knock out most of those favorites within the next five years.

bretty goud, bretty groovy, surprised me at just how sexual this was, there are some Led Zeppelin teir woman worship on this thing... Also surprised to know that the best song off The Empyrean was a cover. There's a heap going on here as well.
You people post way too fast, I can't even go chill on a flight sim without my services beng needed.
Anyway here is something that barely flew and helped realize that more motors =/= more flying
some batshit schematics, curtesy of the Luftwaffe an their ultimate "WEEEEEEEEEEEE" machine the Fw Triebflugel.
The devlopment of the Triebflugel [impulsion plane] started fairly early, in 1942. the basic idea was to make the wings spin instead of using standard propellers. The wide span made takeoff much easier, however that also made the plane much harder to manuver not to mention that any bullet to the wings could at the very least compromise the flight.
nice show, dam'sjans. have a nice meeting! byee
the stability was an issue, but another problem is how hard it was to fly that thing in which the pilot was supposed to be in a sitting position (as opposed to the Heinkel Lerche that had the pilot laying) in a plane that to put it simply does not have any horizontal referential.
The one with Anno pretending he can be a voice actor?
I'm not really sure I want to see Disney's take on japanese militarization and modernization. All dat predictable bias.
well, it's disney distributing a studio ghibli production
it's about the creator of the planes the japanese used and how much he loves planes, and how he feels about their use
dis cool enough
better off waiting for next thread with the question
the thread will be kill soon, so I'll post infos on the Dornier 31 and family later.
Still, have a dev prototype of the Do 29
Ghibli = japanese Disney
Except with slightly better taste.
I'll be too busy with the Avant Garde chart and tourneys to have a calendar

>Altered States - Mosaic
>Tarantel - From Bone to Satellite
>Incredible Bongo Band - Bongo Rock: The Story of IBB
>Trouble in Dreams - Destroyer

damn, from the thumbnail I thought it was a timelapse picture of a leap-takeoff and I got my hopes up.
Welcome To Sky Valley is amazing though. Ethereal record.
Never man. Never been out of Europe even, so it's about damn time I get to some place far away and Indonesia looks great. I mean everything is there, good food, temples and stuff, beautiful nature, sick beaches, whole party islands and thingy's. I'm gonna enjoy my time there.
You got some recs about should's and shouldn't's?
