I showed my friend James Chance and The Contortions and he told me that my music was fucked up. I expected that honestly.
>>
>>48593123
>Friend is playing lots of EDM (super mainstream: Avicii and such)
>Turn on "Pickled!" by FlyLo

I expected the reaction so it wasn't too bad.

>>48593123
your friends are probably not as pleb as you are
>>
>>48593123
well shit OP, just show your friends something more accesible first.
>death grips
>>
>>48593158
I showed them Animal Collective. Not even their more experimental stuff. I showed them Brother Sport. They laughed really hard and thought the song was a joke.
>>
>>48593195
Why not show them "My Girls?"

When I smoke with my friends I like to purposefully put on the weirdest shit i can think of.

Couple days ago I played part of pic related for them in a taco bell drive thru and they took it as prof that I am an alien.
>>
>>48593207
Because the song starts really slow and takes a long time to build up. My friends are not open minded one bit. They wouldn't like anything on my iPod other than the hip hop.
>>
>>48593248
what do they like then
>>
>>48593248
And Brother Sport sounds like a guy giving another guy a bj
>>
>>48593248
Fair, I suppose. Once it gets to the build point, I think it's impossible for most people to dislike it.

>>48593233
play sextant by herbie hancock next time
>>
>>48593123
Exactly the same as your friends, OP.
>>
>>48593253
Mainstream hiphop, pop, and R&B. Never listen to alternative, rock, or experimental music.
>>
>>48593287
What stuff have u showed them?

the only /mu/core my dad likes is king crimson and the flaming lips

>there's one guy who only votes for/listens to rap and pop hits.

dude King Crimson is the bomb.

My dad thinks KC are the best prog band actually. He's more into post-punk and new wave though.

When you're antisocial and depressed, it's hard to go out and find better friends.

I showed a couple friends Death Grips. One hated it and the other appreciated it but couldn't get into it. I also showed qt Death Grips and she loved it. We were gonna go to Pitchfork to see them but then something came up on her end and the Death Grips broke up.
>>
>>48593305
Tortoise, mogwai & explosions in the sky.
I thought it was light enough for them to like it or at-least not react that way, guess they aren't used to pure instrumentals.
>>
>>48593346
It's called high school in Washington DC.
>>
>dude this is awful
>this is no lie the worst thing I've ever heard
>I think I'm having a stroke

But then one of my other friends liked Boris and Mogwai, he's pretty cool.
>>
>>48593343
music book club sounds lie a great idea.

I wish I had friends who knew what music is.
>>
>mfw listen almost exclusively to metal
I just show them an instrumental atmospheric black metal track. Though I've had good results with showing people Lifelover tracks, even if they don't listen to metal.
>>
>>48593397
Which Tortoise song did you show them? I'd say Glass Museum is very accessible.
>>
>>48593343
I wanna enter a music book club. Sounds neat
>>
>>48593397
That stuff is pretty accessible. People think that if they only listen to something for a few seconds or just one time they can have their mind made up on whether they like it or not.
>>
>>48593421
I don't remember, it was from the album millions now living will never die, I think it was along the banks of rivers.
>>
>>48593414
>>48593423
It would be neat but so far we haven't really listened to anything challenging. Closest we have got is The College Dropout.
We almost weren't going to listen to Illmatic this week (as a group) because the Pop guy didn't like it.
>>
>This is so boring. Not gonna lie anon you listen to awful music sometimes

I was playing Avatar by Swans.

I once put my phone on shuffle with a friend, sitting on the grass. I remember she watched me strange when Death Grips came, but overall she didn't seem to find it strange or anything.

"What is this? It sounds pretty good."
I even acidentally posted the remix they did of Pretty Boy Swag in a League of Legends game and one guy clicked it and said it was tight.

Have you guys not come out to the people you know about some of the music you listen to?
>>
>>48593574
I don't have a lot of music on my phone. So yeah, at this moment it was the weirdest thing she heard.
>>
>>48593458
Whats the point of going to one of those things if you don't want to try new music? It sounds like something a parent would make their kid do. Like why even go if yourself wouldn't want to listen to new music ,did his mom make him go?

My friends love the metal and "chill" music I put on
Showed them the radio dept. and The Contortionist the other day. They were really into

I've figured out exactly what theyd enjoy, since I also enjoy it, whereas before I would put on what /mu/ enjoyed
>>
I only play ridiculously cheesy music at parties, like italo disco or Initial D soundtracks or speedcore, so there's bound to always bound to be a couple of guys who will like it because it's so over the top and that kind of music is generally fun as fuck when drunk. Most people don't like the stuff I play but it doesn't matter because I don't hog the whole playlist to myself.

I keep showing my friend music, he keeps liking it, but instead of finding anything else he just OBSESSES over what I show him and doesn't shut the fuck up about it

it gets to the point where all I can think about when I listen to it is hitting this motherfucker with a hammer.

He fucking ruined Lightning Bolt for me.

all my good friends love swans and /mu/core and get tons of girls. no joke it's awesome

When I bought a copy of Money Store my friend said I should put it on when we got back to the car.

You can already guess how she reacted.
>>
>>48595079
death grips is pretty pleb-friendly music, especially that album. i know a lot of people who listen to death grips. why do you think they were touring with nin and soundgarden?
>>
I showed my Christian, very pastel friend Caroliner. She actually liked it, and has talked about/asked me to play it since. She usually listens to pop hits, so it was a... Shocking discovery.
>>
yesterday i played Montreal by Autechre and my friend sat there laughing throughout it because it was "ridiculous" and the "beats were all random"

holy shit you all are so fucking autistic

He's like, 22 or so.
He also is incredibly juvenile when criticizing music.

you should show that friend something off exai then
>>
>>48593831
it's not even that. they refuse to listen to anything that's of more than 4-5 minutes in length.
>>
To Be Kind is the only thing my friends have never liked.

They didn't like death grips at first, but then they got into Kanye and it grew on them i guess
>>
>>48595335
>tfw nobody you know likes lowercase

I have 2 or 3 friends wich I can be totally open with my shit taste in noise, ambiental, drone, and all that kind of stuff that would have normal people worried about me. It feels fucking great.

One of them is into even weirder stuff than me and shows me bands all the time.

reminds me of a friend I have of the same age, wanted to go to bonnaroo solely for Kanye and Vampire Weekend. couldnt care less about anyone else playing

That actually sounds pretty cool, but unfortunately it would probably devolve into a pitchfork circle jerk, if it wasn't infested by complete and utter sub-0-level plens, that is.
>>
>>48596035
Basically what I've been trying is to slowly wean them into more avant-garde through the easier stuff like Kid A. Even that, though, I am sure they won't like. There's another guy who suggests Girl Talk and Tobacco though, so that's neat.

Me and some friends did something like this, where we would all bring our favorite records over to one of our houses and listen to them while we played VG or drank or something. It was good fun.
>>
>>48593419
>>mfw listen almost exclusive to metal
I know that feel, friend.
I've noticed the same thing when I've shown someone Life|over. There must just be some certain quality they possess that makes people more open to them.
>>
>>48596091
I haven't listened to them but I thought Fantano liked them? IDK
>>
I have one friend who is super open minded and it feels so good to share stuff with him. He's always so excited and it makes my day.
>>
>>48596121
That sounds awesome. I should try that sometime when I become less busy.
>>
>>48596135
it's just shitty mashups that sound like shit. the worst part is that it has good songs like windowlicker mixed in with a bunch of terrible pop.
>>
>>48596155
Well, I guess I'll discover my opinions on it this week.
I find it important that I'm getting to listen to an artist I've never listened to before, anyways.
>>
I was camping with my friends a few days ago and I let them listen to "She Loves Us"

they laughed and said it was the crappiest thing they had ever heard.

:( what do i do?
>>
I always play the first two tracks of Hello Everyone Nice to Meet You We Are Midori in the car. During the first one they all laugh at me and ask if I'm gay. Then the second track comes on and they go "WHAT THE FUCK TURN THIS OFF!" Then I play Wakusei Abnormal instead and they ask why I listen to such weird shit. By then anything else I play is relatively normal and they won't complain about it.
>>
>>48593123
I don't show my friends music I know they won't enjoy. They like certain music and I'll ask them if they know the entry level artists to another genre and if they don't I leave it there, as I understand not everyone has the same taste.
>>
I got one my friends into Cardiacs and another one is getting into Henry Cow. I usually show them weird stuff I find from time to time, but they don't usually like it. It's fun at least.

>>48596815
Haha, I have showed them Midori and Wakusei too. They sort of liked Midori, especially because at the beginning of a song it sounds like she is screaming one of my friends last name.
