It's the snibbedy of snab x-DDD
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.

You guys makin yer February calendars yet? Not sure what I'm putting on it, any reccs?
miscellaneous january 2016 recs
>Chairlift - Moth
>David Bowie - Blackstar
>Janine Jansen; Antonio Pappano: LSO - Brahms & Bartók: Violin Concertos
>Ches Smith, Craig Taborn, Matt Maneri - The Bell
>Anderson .Paak - Malibu
Ulla Katajavuori, Martti Pokela - Finnish Kantele Music vol 2
I'd recc you this
>Espers - II
Fuzzy psych-folk, one of my favs of this past week.
Not really. I'd like this month to be more diverse than just psych folk though. Got any good electronic reccs though? I was thinking about adding more techno stuff. Not just the usual Warp stuff either.
I usually shy away from electronic stuff. I enjoy Amon Tobin a lot though, his stuff is pretty organic.
Amon tobin- Foley Room
Felix Laband- Dark Days Exit
and if you want another
Markus Wormstorm- Rachel the Bear
>300 posts until planes
I'll be waiting, bros.
he can take mine, nobody likes the Grim Fandango music anywhay
if there is an extra spot for whatever reason.
danny clay / joseph edward yonker - john wayne death scene
February set up. Thanks for reccs. Already had Bowie and Fishmans in mind so we good. I can take one more recc for my album on the 29th if anyone wouldn't mind.
nice chart. station to station is great. i need to listen to more fishmans.
Made this cause I like the tradition of meme cover OP pics, someone can use it sometime I guess
Not sure if that qualifies but still.
Also, Bombay Dub Orchestra's S/t and most of Shpongle.
DEN U HOP OUT AND BE THRU WITH DAT
NFL is fucking gay. A bunch of dumb roid monkeys giving themselves concussions while 2 hours of commercials and 10 minutes of sport is played. NBA is actually exciting and a lot safer.
John Coltrane and Duke Ellington- John Coltrane and Duke Ellington
Really this is just boring, two great players but neither do too much that's exciting, even with some pretty good material
>Chris Watson - Weather Report
This is top quality nature recordings. The sound quality is incredible and there's so much details to pick out. The first track takes place in the Kenyan savannah. Watson recorded this track over the span of 14 hours. At one point a storm breaks out and you can feel the tension rising and the animals getting excited. The 2nd track was recorded in 4 months in a Scottish glen. Again the wind and the rain are the protagonists and it's very vivid. The last track was recorded near a glacier in Ireland. At first you can only hear the intimidating crackling of the glacier as he moves. After that you're taken to the surface, meeting the cold wind and a variety of animals again.
What troubles me is that Watson obviously made cuts in what he recorded and he rearranged the bits to make these 18 minutes tracks. This probably makes the music more beautiful but it can make it less real.
>Jana Winderen - Energy Field
Jana Winderen uses her recordings as the basis of deep, intense ambient compositions. The base material is mainly sound recorded underwater near Norway and Greenland. The last track is massive. It feels like you're diving deeper and deeper into the ocean, reaching an unknown and abstract place where there's not even water anymore.
What's next ?
>Lil Ugly Mane - Mista Thug Isolation
Lil Ugly Mane's style is now totally defined: drawing inspiration from southern hip hop, chopped and screwed, horrorcore, and Travis' wicked mind, he creates something pretty unique. And enjoyable. Very enjoyable.
Everything is pitched down, and every song has some strong bass frequencies, this results in a very muddy sounds that is a blueprint of Shawn Kemp's production.
Still, there is a lot of variety, in both style and sound. Travis can produce both bangers and chilled down tracks, and they all flow and feel very natural. Another key element in those beats are the cheesy synths: they sound exactly like Pen & Pixel covers; it's pretty incredible and they make this record very characteristic. Hell, "Bitch I'm Lugubrious" samples Wicked Witch and "Breezem Out" samples a very corny synth-based Christmas song! And I don't know which is the weirdest choice!
It's hard to explain, but it kinda sounds like lean-infused music through a fever dream.
The lyrics also fell...strange.
For the most part they are you typical horrorcore/gangsta quotables; they are pretty funny and entertaining, also because they are a little more extreme that your standard stuff.
But then there are some lines that make me feel confused: I mean, I don't think that saying that a girl is on your dick like flies on a box of fruit is "thug" or "gangsta", same for "imma slit my wrists no tourniquet", meeting bitches outside milk stores or churches, "28 grams gotta bag em out", "pocket full of clips that's bananas" and the list could go on for a long time, but you got the idea.
Or maybe they are thug or gangsta in a fever dream.
Classic Lil Ugly Mane style.
This cunt just wrote synopses about nature field recordings as if it was music and rated it 9/10 lmfao
>every song has some strong bass frequencies
Dumbest clause I've read in a /daily/ synopsis for weeks.
what the fuck is this 3 bullshit
8 was my favorite as I think he probably is almost everyone's and 4 was the most reasonable one, also really liked 11. the one I liked the least was 12 and 7 cause obvious reasons.
don't have much of an opinion on 1, he wasn't a very active voice
can we talk about really long songs
i'm writing one right now and it's gone through so many permutations
i wanna talk about structure, about schizophrenic jumps v. long drawn out sections, and about circling around lots of themes and doing the length justice. it's so easy for a long track to disappear up its own asshole
what are /daily/s favorite >9 minute long tracks, what makes a good long song, what makes a bad one, how to present a narrative
of note: the central album on your chart is my all time favorite record
3 gets the highest for being the most entertaining person in the movie.
4 and 8 are pretty interchangeable as the only logical characters in the movie. The movie makes 4 seem like a cool logical badass, so he gets to be above 8.
If we're ranking characters 12 is objectively the worst. And 3 drops behind 4 and 8
>what makes a good long song, what makes a bad one
structure. the song shouldn't stay exactly the same for too long , which can usually get very monotonous and boring for the listener. of course repetition can be done right (think about drone music) , but its usually not a very good idea for long tracks
9 minutes is above the average song length, but its not very long
>what are /daily/s favorite >9 minute long tracks
Car Seat Headrest - Hey, Space Cadet
LCD Soundsystem - Yeah
Swans - Mother of the World
has to have remarkable parts and some clear changes, not too many repetitons, especailly vocally wise
or a really good groove, atmosphere, chord progression
>inb4 hampus complaining about my manner of expression
Scratch Acid- The Greatest Gift
Scratch Acid- Scratch Acid
Definitely their best work. The guitars sound up in your face, and David Yow's vocals are probably the best they'll ever be.
Scratch Acid- Just Keep Eating
This one has a definite drop in quality, really it's just too overproduced and clean sounding, takes away a lot of the potency of the music
Scratch Acid- Berserker
A nice bridge between the s/t and goat, but not as good as either
Overall Score- 3.5.5
>what are /daily/s favorite >9 minute long tracks
idk, according to itunes my most played long songs are Medicine Bottle by Red House Painters; After the Flood by Talk Talk, Luau by Drive Like Jehu
>what makes a good long song
a long song that feels like one cohesive piece, presenting enough new ideas throughout to not wear out its welcome. for example, Luau constantly evolves throughout and finally goes into a long intense jam session. Medicine Bottle is very repetitive but features a very intreguing narrative along with some surprising sections (like the sporadic choruses, the instrumental bridge).
>what makes a bad one
poor performance, messy and unfocused songwriting (excessive section-hopping for example), really anything that fails to keep my attention throughout its runtime.
>how to present a narrative
ehh, keep it focused on a central theme; it helps to tie in certain sections to each other.
>get a reply
Sun Kil Moon's tracks hardly change in structure or pacing throughout their duration but they come off as refreshing despite their length. He's my biggest influence in writing songs of longer length because what makes his works stand out is his constantly new information that he uses to build up the tension of a song.
It's not so much the instrumentation that builds up as much as the story. I Saw The Film The Song Remains The Same shows theevidence of this. Though the narrative isn't exactly linear or in connection with each other, Mark Kozelek draws varied emotions from his monotone voice because the actions taking place are so universal.
In the end, it tends to be tension building (and releasing) that draws me to keep coming back to a song when it's a bit long.
Very recently started listening to glitch/trip hop. Any recs welcome.
Also, if anyone knows any more like Björk - Pluto and Anne Clark - Our Darkness, I'd be very happy to check em out. I can't really put my finger on exactly why I like it, but that deliciously droning underlaying beat probably has a lot to do with it.
oh hey i have a gift for you
i found this a week or so ago and it's literally the coolest thing ever
oh hampy's back, daily must be shit again
it is though. not the best record i've ever heard but undoubtedly my favorite.
9 is what i consider the minimum for a "long track." the one i'm working on is longer, but that honestly doesn't matter. if songs were bridges, i'd say 9 minutes is about where a track starts needing support beams.
see the style of the current project i'm working on is a really nice breeding ground for long tracks--i'm riding this beachy, americana directionlessness vibe. florida panhandle, shepherd's dog style. you've probably never heard any of my stuff, but i don't do drone. if i do a long song, it will have a narrative. it will have changes. but i don't want to cheat and pull a "long song is a suite of shorter songs." i want to build a tapestry of interconnecting themes 'n' shit.
swans should probably be on my listening list. they have a ton of good longer tracks. the other two already have a known presence in my project, and space cadet is a really solid influence for sure. my work is closer to that track than to dramamine, that's for sure.
>a really good groove/chord progression
yeah, like trapeze swinger or Home or something. if you get in the pocket you can go for days.
i need to hear more talk talk. wasn't stunned by laughing stock desu but you know that already. RHP is a constant presence in my life, and they do long tracks really well. I'll relisten to colourful hill when Tallahassee finishes. i don't know the third one at all. i suppose i should listen to it.
it's so hard to do cohesive right. it's like an EP inside a larger album. it's like the great red spot on jupiter.
i'm working with a central pair of characters and i'm analyzing their relationship. everything revolves around that.
>i suppose i should listen to it
yes you should
>i'm working with a central pair of characters and i'm analyzing their relationship. everything revolves around that.
nice, i'm looking forward to the album
Nuno Canavarro - Plux Quba (1988)
>tape music, electroacoustic
Delicate, childish, and innocent, with a kind of distorted human element that grounds the whole thing. Starts off kinda slow and shockingly dissonant, but it eventually works itself into a really childish and chilled-out groove that I like a whole bunch. "Bruma" sounds so much like "Dire, Dire Docks" from the Super Mario 64 soundtrack I actually thought it was a sample until I realized that this came out 8 years before that game. Takes me back to a comfily nostalgic place.
got distracted. anyway, check this out.
cLOUDDEAD is my go-to. an entirely unique experience.
tension. that's an interesting metric that i haven't entirely been paying attention to but you're entirely right.
and you're right--mr the great distortion does indeed do long songs well, and he always has. i'll drown myself in his stuff (aside from SKM and RHP what other projects is he involved with?) on shuffle over the course of this week and see where it gets me.
what do you think hambone
it was great before i stole half the trips and made a Skype group
then it was still great but not as busy
then hampus came back
>Why didn't you post the structure of your song, fuckhead? Is it because it's some noise garbage and doesn't have any actual planned structure?
damn, why did you come back to /daily/ like 10 times more of a cock then you were last time?
That it will be some utterly terrible crap that no one in their right mind would want to listen to. Maybe even some four chord shitty indie rock with "le evolving narrative lyrics XD"
took me 3 months to join in
lots of people listen to terrible indie music (including me but only some terrible indie music though cause I really dislike a lot of terrible indie music)
stop being a cock hampy
for real though the structure is currently undecided because i keep rewriting it. it's got a sort of circular structure atm, four central movements, begins and ends on the same coda. still debating on how "huge" it's gonna get. it will have multiple sections for sure but it won't be endlessly hopping around. i prefer little splinters of reprises as opposed to new ideas completely. i'm crazy frugal as a writer.
he missed us but doesn't know how to show it
he's like the real life version of clay from moral orel, he equates dick-headedness with affection
oh cool i like gifts.
also my favorite 9+ minute song is The Horrible Fanfare/Landslide/Exoskeleton by Beck. some people say it's cheating, but they just flow so fucking well together. you can't hear one without the other.
other favorites are The Sun from Mount Eerie and It Was a Dark and Stormy Night by Nicolas Collins. the second one's pretty avant tho.
why is snibeti suddenly a meme here.
this is like a year old ylilauta /int/ meme
yeah mount eerie really needs to be taken as a whole (and with most of his other release in mind). it's still a top tier opener.
thank you so much for that booklet! this looks expansive as fuck. i'll be looking through that asap.
and yeah you for real have to listen to The Information soon. it's the best production i've ever heard on a record.
and you also need to check out Man Man - On Oni Pond. I think i brought it up before, but you really need to hear it.
Rachel's felt like backings for some chamber pop that never was, not an exciting listen, but it wasn't bad
Bel Air is a good example for a longer song, it keeps its core around enough to be considered a singular piece and not just stuff piled together and given a longer running time, while also not being a bore. It has progression through a couple of motifs that doesn't feel disjointed or like a suite.
it's the coolest thing ever. really gives you a sense of aaron weiss' ridiculous skill as a writer.
The Information has been on my to-listen list for ages now. i might listen to it before i dive into the kozzy-hole.
bel air by who
How do you listen to an album /mu/?
Do you do anything while listening to a new album or just focus on it entirely?
word filters. f a m, s m h, and t b h
i believe are now senpai shm and desu.
asian moot put it in place i think. smart move.
yeah it's p good. Future Days in general is a very solid album.
>new and interesting music
btw guys, listen to "Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy" 10/10 album.
>Do you do anything while listening to a new album or just focus on it entirely?
I wish it would be the latter more often, but in 90% of cases, I don't the time for it (or the patience)
>Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy
>new and interesting music
The 11 minutes opener didn't move me at all; the other five tracks are really good. I feel like this album explores the Ape sound from a more industrial-rooted angle. Just like on Ape, I still feel like some of the synths sound tacky and, just like on that one, Coil try to beat you over the head with muh ritualism.
I guess my love-hate relationship with Coil's signature sound is the main thing that keeps me from falling head over heels for this album, but it's still a very enjoyable piece.
govt plates was okay. 6.5/10.
great annihilator next i think
neu!, fun house and maiden voyage are great. and they're all albums from artists I should check more shit out
yeah so that's why I was confused to the spirit of the post
although I still think you're being ahuge cock about it
Slint- Untitled EP
two amazing mathy instrumentals
the noisy breakdown in the middle of Rhoda and everything that follows until the end of the track is the best thing Slint ever did
back from food.
The Information by Beck
songwriting is okay but whoever produced and mixed the record needs to find a new line of work. Yeah, beck's talented and he went some interesting places, but I think this might be one of the worst produced albums i've ever heard in my life. everything is brought to the front and just fucking hammers your ears into oblivion. there's absolutely no finesse to it. aside from basic panning, it's like it wasn't mixed or mastered at all. i almost couldn't finish it to be honest. it just made me miserable. i'd love to see these songs performed live, but the production style not only made them all sound the same, but made them sound bad.
more subjectively, i feel like the record went way too broad on musical styles. it didn't seem like a synthesis, but a scrap heap. nothing stays long enough to have any resonance, and I've never been a fan of Beck's vocals. i caught some of the threads that guided the album but the connections seemed half-hearted. pretty much every time Beck presents an idea, it's either too half-baked or too poorly-managed to be taken seriously. i just couldn't buy into any of it. it was like i was listening to the same baby's-first-studio-recording 17 times in a row, when one is already too much. it lasted forever and i can't say i enjoyed any of it.
Dark Star and No Complaints were *okay* (though the production was still terrible). everything else was forgettable and lacked any depth from a musical perspective. and i can't stress enough how shitty the production is. jesus. it's just gross.
GFR, you know i love you and you know i have massive respect for your taste in music, but this is one of the worst albums I've ever heard.
man i know but like honestly, i was just pissed the whole time
it never went anywhere, it just threw horribly produced same-sounding songs at me until it finally shut up.
it's the same reason i don't like arcade fire but like one hundred times worse
FlyingIceHampus, like myself, only visits daily once in a blue moon. don't hold your breath.
Shut up, Arcade Fire is fine. Funeral is a seminal indie rock album and Reflektor had some banger tunes that I've played at parties. Nothing spectacular about them, but they do what they do well, and they're popular for it.
meh, I doubt I'll like it
and I was really, really surprised by Sufjan, first Suffy album I actually liked to an amount
others just bored me to death, especially Michigan
>don't hold your breath
I can try
dude i know but like
production is my thing, it's what i look for
and this made me want to kill someone
hampus i'm sorry you're upset but the cold hard truth is that arcade fire, though culturally significant, is one of the most shallow bands to ever record. with almost no exception, all their music suffers from an incredibly narrow composition style and lyrics so linear that i may as well be listening to a concrete wall. no dynamics, no diversity, no depth.
never said i was :^)
thank you hampus
>hampus i'm sorry you're upset but the cold hard truth is that arcade fire, though culturally significant, is one of the most shallow bands to ever record. with almost no exception, all their music suffers from an incredibly narrow composition style and lyrics so linear that i may as well be listening to a concrete wall. no dynamics, no diversity, no depth.
That's indie rock and pop in general in a fucking nutshell. But hey, at least it's better than fucking noise music.
untrue. when indie rock fucks up, it usually strays too far in the other direction--it tries too hard to be dynamic and weird. pop, on the other hand, exists solely to be catchy, profitable, and primally evocative, which, if you're upfront about it, is completely fine.
>implying we're impersonating you
>implying we have opinions
>implying you're hampus
ignore the gibberish there, my window fucked up. anyway, the point is, if what you say is true it's undeniably due to the influence of arcade fire and pop-folk acts like the lumineers and mumford & sons, which suffer from the same problem. fuck those bands too.
Should I come in already?
>mfw there's literally people that exist who aren't hampus
Near Unison is boring as hell. They were trying to do this whole minimal thing with the songwriting, but the only thing minimal here that they pulled off was my enjoyment. I don't even remember any of the track's names.
Deserter's Songs had some great songs, but as a whole the album could have took more risks. The songwriting just felt a bit flat in alot of places. The Funny Bird is where it's at.
Kind of Blue meanders pointlessly. Yes I said it. I just failed to pick out anything special or noteworthy about the melodies on this album. It's obvious that Kind of Blue relies on the vibe it gives off. Unfortunately I never picked up on it. No favorite track.
Exploded Drawing is a like a very exquisite and thoughtful puzzle, only shmushed and forced into a picture that is barely unrecognizable. Each piece of this album is very well done, but the LP as a whole is put together very messily. Even the songs themselves have transitions that are about as eloquent as a running elephant. Best Track: Fast Canoe (dat riff)
Weasels... Flesh is great. The free jazz is very much free, but there is an undeniable ear for composition and pacing to be found throughout the album. And there's some blues thrown in there as well because why the fuck not. Directly From My Heart To You takes it.
The condescending patricians loom above you, they fill you with determination.
( ) Pan
(X) Do Not Pan
Determination or Fallen Down.
The Image Has Cracked is alot of fun. This is far from your thinking man's post-punk album (which isn't really a flaw). It's just a few fast, hard hitting, and obtuse 70's punk tracks that are just dying to abuse your speakers for 40 minutes. Severely underrated. The fact that RYM pans this then goes on to praise The Clash or Sex Pistols just makes me want to petrol bomb something important. Can't even decide on a favorite track.
I'm such a loser
holy shit you're back
further proof that my claims are legitimate.
thanks to the lgbt and /trad/ community for their support.
i'll admit i was wrong about this album, btw, it's pretty decent at least
trying to get into hip hop essentials, clearly
still working on process for rendering these markdown files
This. Those albums have dated terribly and are kinda mediocre with the exception of maybe Public Enemy.
How much hip-hop have your heard? I'm going off the assumption that you've listened to basically none, so...
Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous
well i would still recommend all those honestly, if only for a couple tracks on each, but also to get a feel for the genre; afterwards though i would go
De La Soul - 3 Feet High & Rising (like Tribe but more colorful and positive-minded)
Eric B & Rakim - Paid in Full (like Public Enemy with more clear focus on turntablism + a more skilled MC)
GZA - Liquid Swords (honestly, fuck Illmatic)
Outkast - Aquemini (like idk, it's good, and part of the genre canon pre-2000 so it fits?)
Oh, and Late Registration. I've never been huge on Kanye but I really enjoy this release (save the skits).
I can't recommend Deltron 3030, Madvillainy, and 36 Chambers enough, though.
Jack Rose - Kensington Blues (2005)
Rose certainly bit Fahey a little bit too hard, but Fahey's sound is literally my musical platonic ideal, so I can't complain too much. Rose was an absolute God on the guitar, the absolute skill he displays on the bookend tracks puts most "guitar gods" to shame, he's so good. But once again, Rose really needed to find his own voice and not just imitate his inspiration. His interpretation of Fahey's "Sunflower River Blues" does little to improve on Fahey's tune, and every track here really does sound like something off of Fare Forward Voyagers, but not as good. Still, what a shame that this guy passed. Absolutely the shining figure of the small 2000s primitivism revival. Would've loved to see the things he could do with his massive talent (oh wait, Pelt. yeah)
enter the wu-tang, madvillainy, and ATLiens are probably the best 'essentials', imo.
>like Public Enemy with more clear focus on turntablism + a more skilled MC
yea but much less creative sampling. rakim is probably better but the contrast between flav and d is another selling point in that department
it comes down to whether you want to hear one very skilled mc across an entire album (dj breaks permitted or one pretty skilled mc and his less interesting comic foil.
new thread never
yee just sayin i mean obviously the juxtaposition of any two or more elements in a song/album/work (or even between diff works?) is like an element of itself
Continuing my Zappa fuckery.
I just realized that a new Zappa album was released in December (just after I decided I was going to do this). Maybe it'll be good? It's an orchestral version of 200 Motels, which I happen to think is a very underrated album.
Joe's Domage contains recordings from the Waka/Jawaka sessions. It's literally just an hour of tuning and surface noise. It baffles me that they could release this, but it has a few alright moments.
Buffalo was another unnecessarily long concert with otherwise a few decent parts. Nothing much of substance here.
Congress Shall Make No Law...is a good visualization of what exactly Zappa was going through and thinking during the 80s as his albums as well as those albums by artists around him were getting screwed by the religious right. If you're interested in what Zappa has to say about government and how it relates to music, give this a try. Otherwise, it totally fails as an album, but I can at least see why its release was justified.
Roxy by Proxy was fucking fantastic. Almost as good as the original Roxy & Elsewhere. Has the original songs of the Roxy live album but with a few extras of my favorites not on that album such as the Dog Breath Variations transitioning into Uncle Meat, RDNZL, and a finale that mixes King Kong, Chunga's Revenge, and Mr. Green Genes. If you like Zappa's live stuff, Roxy & Elsewhere, or Zappa in general, this is a fantastic album.
I would also recommend Roxy the Movie/Roxy the Soundtrack which just came out this year with a video of the Roxy performance. Though not on the Zappa family trust official numbered releases, it's still one of my favorite Zappa outputs.
This fucking dispersion of ratings is making me actually laugh out loud. I was expecting these 2s and 3s, but certainly no 8s or 9s.
Zappa has to be one of the most well-versed artists ever. The amount of versatile and eclectic shit in his catalog is insane. It's extremely varied not just in style and genre, but the actual quality is all over the place too.
Burzum- Hvis lyset tar oss
This does not sound like black metal, this is a completely different beast
Varg does not growl, he screams like an abused animal
The guitars here don't sound like guitars, instead they sound like waves of fuzz, very shoegaze-esque
the synths are surprisingly not cheesy, but sound cold and meditate
the drums are the only thing that really ties it back to conventional metal, as that's all they sound like is regular metal drums
Lyrically, Varg tells stories of loss and longing for a time that never was, in his tortured shrieks. This album really sounds miserable, but also beautifully angry
the soundscaping is top tier as well, the production is perfectly awful
The middle two track sounds closer to a more conventional black metal song, with a tempo increase and more metal sounding drums, while the first and last bookend it with an ambient sound, as the last track is 14 minutes of synth ambient, which is actually pretty good
Okay guys, terrible or a great idea:
100 albums for one month that are from 100 separate countries I don't have currently cataloged on my RYM music map. I realize 90% of it would be tribal music, but it would be a good experience. I already have February planned out, so maybe I could do it in March?
Updated calendar now with actually the amount of days in January!
>Gato Barbieri - Fenix
Some pretty good jazz.
>Mujician & the Georgian Ensemble - The Bristol Concert
Some *REALLY* good jazz. I was blown away by the energy and power of the music here. Might move up to a 9 in the future.
Need album for today!

":^| Wew lads.
Saw that Hijokaidan share in the last thread, will DL once I'm back. Thanks Term.
Listened/watched to some recorded concert from Ali Akbar Khan on TV. It was great.
Found a tabla at the store straight outta Pakistan. I'll probably buy it tomorrow
I have a question /daily/: Was this the first album art that parodied another album art (1968)? I can't find an earlier one. The original US release had the shitter cover that was supposed to be the gate-fold per request of the label (though a few EU versions had the original intended cover).
Also, that is actually Jimmy Hendrix that showed up for the shoot.
I don't usually post in these threads because it's too much work but I recently listened to the Right Away, Great Captain! Trilogy and I really enjoyed it. I don't listen to a lot of folk music but I have a soft spot for any album, regardless of genre, that can tell a cohesive story and do it well. This was no exception. Any else enjoy it?
how can i make recordings of my voice sound more dream-pop/ethereal or otherwise just beautiful, soft and lush, /mu/ ? sorry for all the adjectives, its hard to even describe what i want. Im willing to download just about any program anons, give me some tips, tell me what to do
just for reference, we're talking these kinds of vocals right?
are you recording yourself from a distance? that helps too, especially when coupled with a room that has nice acoustics
jesus christ this is literally exactly what i mean, exactly what im going for!
yeah i wrote some nice lyrics tonight and i feel like i wont be able to pull them off unless i can replicate a sound like that,
desu the place with best acoustics in my house is probably my bathroom, is that weird? my voice seems to bounce of the walls and harmonise with itself
no, the bathroom is a perfect place to do this. experiment with that and tell us how it goes, that may just be enough to get the job done.
WHO TF UP
so be it
i felt drawn to his skepticism on Christianity during my adolscence. I never read God Is Not Great but I could understand his main points from the debates I'd seen and it resonated with me.
I still struggle with the idea of God being good when he has the power of eliminating suffering but I've learned to accept it because I'm sure I will never find a satisfying answer.
I'm calling the cops, you're going away for life friendo.

YUP - Toppatakkeja ja Toledon Terästä
Toppatakkeja ja Toledon terästä is a concept album by the Finnish proggy rock group YUP. It is considered as one of the band's more progressive efforts, combining many genres of music, for an example jazz, classical and punk.
It's a bit like "a chaos under control" and it sure has some bizarre lyrics in it.
I love everything in it, but my personal favourite part is track 5 and everything after.
/mu/ really should notice this album.
