/mu/, I think we should create an essential night-time-core chart
If you have any previous ones, please post them here. I'm starting off with pic related
if you listen to this album during the daytime youre fucked up
i don't know these well, anyone else voting for them is appreciated
i'd say this is more of a late-evening sort of album, rather than late-night, but if it's popular it'll go on
1 grouper album is enough, I vote for AIA but let me know what you guys think
For best results:
Start at sundown and make sure "Empty Shell"
plays right as it gets dark.
this has gone quite nicely, any suggestions?
Trip Hop is the best nighttime music of all time
Interpol isn't exactly nighttime. I suggest pic related
>Not putting Randy on the list.
One of the most powerful experiences I've ever had was standing on my friend's balcony overlooking the whole city at like 5am on New Year's Day listening to this album and burning through a whole pack of cigarettes. This is an essential nighttime album.
Kind of an obscure release, but Dirty Beaches' Drifters/Love Is The Devil (which is in the archive) is probably the ultimate night-core album.
Other night-core albums:
Banana Head - In The Tubs
Crystal Castles - I
Dean Blunt - The Redeemer (highly recommended)
Elliot Smith - Roman Candle
Forest Swords - Dagger Paths
Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie XX - We're New Here
Jackson C. Frank - Blues Run The Game (highly recommended)
James Ferraro - NYC, Hell, 3AM (highly recommended)
SD Laika - That's Harakiri
Shlohmo - Bad Vibes
Spooky Black - Black Silk, Forest
Squarepusher - Feed Me Weird Things
The Killers - Sawdust (I don't give a fuck what you say, /mu/)
Tim Hecker - Ravedeath 1972 (highly recommended)
Vereker - Slain
Violent Femmes - S/T, Hallowed Ground
Definitely replace Cosmogramma with this. Pretty much the seminal nightbus album
shit i did this day-core and night-core chart few years ago and asked you guys about it but i never finished it.
i hope someone actually makes one.
i had a list of it but i cant find it. but albums i remember are:
totbl - interpol
trst - trust
halcyon digest - deerhunter
xx - the xx
Oh, you're actually making the thing.
In which case just this one.
Think the problem is it depends on what kinna night you're having.
Driving home at 4am after a good night, then yep, Before the Dawn, or even Saturdays.
But if it's more like a 'walk around the city on a cold night aimlessly smoking' night, then I'd go with Dead Cities.
i've only updated to here, and it's getting pretty big, any that you think i should remove or replace?
>it seems kind of bland to have so much dream pop / ambient / post-rock
Welcome to /mu/ etc.
You only need one out of Mezzanine and Dummy. I'd suggest dropping Mezzanine.
(You've got Beach House twice btw)
I heard the killers cover joy division the other day on the radio and it was pretty good. They were so good during hot fuss. it's like hit or miss nowadays
The chart is pretty full now, I think any additions will have to replace something
>the killers cover joy division
Moon Safari is more happy-day core in my opinion. I don't think it should be on there. + The XX, maybe it's just me but I don't think we should have it on there.
Howabout some grouper? I feel like we definitely need some grouper.
Or pic related. Here is a sample
Or Ilyas Ahmed?
Imo, so many better choices. But that's just me
