This field is optional. You can choose any name you want, or you can post anonymously by leaving this field empty.

Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

A new alternative rock station just launched in Dallas-Fort Worth after over a year since our last one switched to adult contemporary, and they're playing 10,000 songs without a commercial break, so I've been listening to a lot of that. No Doubt's on right now.

Tremendous, ultra-violet shine blind forensics

Moon Safari's "Lover's End Part III: Skellefteå Serenade." Uplifting instrumentation with a slightly sadder story. Moon Safari's lyrics tend to be about failure, but the major key and upbeat music in general throw it in an optimistic light.

The endless rain might take a pause, when there’s a reason and a course
On open waters I set sail, to learn where others failed...


I discovered that just round the bend lies the meaning of success, now this heart can finally rest

I went to a classical concert today!

It was a solo piano performance at a library in another town.

He played Bach, Chopin and Gerschwin. It was wonderful. He switched from soft gentle playing to intense, colorful playing so well.

I really hate that people say classical is "boring" or can't be exciting. The energy of the performance I saw at times invigorated my whole body, it was an intense feeling of like I could FEEL the music, and it was the only thing I was feeling or thinking about, and I just had such a good time.

And not only that, but it was completely free, and they do these every month. So I'm definitely gonna start attending them regularly.

I was one of the youngest people there though lol, there were so many elderly people, I think the only person younger than me was this very small child.

Also, I had trouble actually seeing the pianist because of people in front of me, but that was alright.

are we seriously gonna have this debate? chamber music can be a form of classical music. it's not exclusive to classical but solo piano pieces can absolutely be classical.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_music

>Classical music is art music produced or rooted in the traditions of Western music, including both liturgical (religious) and secular music. While a more precise term is also used to refer to the period from 1750 to 1820 (the Classical period), this article is about the broad span of time from before the 6th century AD to the present day, which includes the Classical period and various other periods.[1]

Since when was "tomboy" a reference to a girl's physique rather than how masculine their interests and/or style is? I get that small boobs and a chubby belly could be considered a masculine physique, but still, I don't know about you, but that's not the first thing that comes to my mind with that term.

I find it very engaging primarily in an atmospheric way. On the first album I linked, he sings in a horror movie villain-ish way, a very stylized form of creepiness and harshness that goes very well with the somewhat dissonant, rough, free-form guitar playing. Then you combine that with the really abstract, dark lyrics, and it all comes together for a really haunting, tense experience.

Think of it like the musical equivalent of watching a psychological horror movie basically. You're not supposed to think it's beautiful or pleasant, but you're supposed to be drawn in and on the edge of your seat and almost frightened. It's just a different kind of art.

The second album is similar but more conceptual and with less challenging vocals. It's like listening to a psychotic pervert drunkenly ramble to himself and even though that sounds dumb there's something so well-done about it, I've never heard another album that captures something like that, I don't know if it's ever really been attempted.

what's so bad about it?

Chewy {Element Of Fortitude}!MUSIC.FbVYCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 41991677

>>41991669

where to even begin...

It's sooo fucking cringeworthy. Eminem's rapping is either completely boring or outright bad, whether he's jumping on trendy trap beats, or doing more traditional flows, or trying to do his silly Shady/party shit. He's just LOST all the fire and brilliance of his earlier albums.

To compare, the wordplay and rhyme schemes on his early albums were consistently completely fucking brilliant. Like, there is a reason he got a reputation as one of the best technical rappers. Not to mention lyricists.

But his flow on this album is either completely tryhard or just weak. It's like he just lost some element of talent he used to have long ago and he's just chugging along like a train that ran out of fuel years ago but is stuck flying downhill and can't get off the tracks.

The lyricism on this album...it makes Hopsin sound like Nas. It's like he wants to be edgy and political but is afraid to be as edgy as he was on his earlier albums but he can't so it's this awkwardly tame edginess, if that makes any sense. And he's completely fucking pandering to generic liberal shit, like not to defend Trump or anything but he just fires off a ton of recycled talking points, shallow surface-level criticisms. When you compare these lyrics to the genuine insight of a rapper like Kendrick Lamar, they're just atrocious.

Then there's just the beats and the hooks which are garbage, the beats sound like FL Studio shit, and the hooks are AWFUL, it's all cheesy pop shit, fucking Alicia Keys, Pink, Ed Sheeran, like wtf? These kinds of pop stars are the people he used to rap about raping and chopping up and shit, like not that he should still do that but there's just some really absurd irony there.

He just needs to fucking stop, every time he releases a new album I think "well it can't be worse than the last one, right?" but no here I am again and this new one BTFO everything else in terms of shittiness.

I used to hate Relapse with a passion, but I have to at least admit that he still had some sense of lyrical and technical skill and creativity on that album, even if it was wasted on adolescent obscenity.

I just finished the new album and the only song I kinda like is the very last one because he actually does sound genuinely emotional and supercharged on it. But even the beat on that track is trash.

This is his worst album and that's really saying something because he hasn't released a good album since 2002.

Yeah, Primitive Man didn't work out so well. Got bored about half way though. It just made me want to listen to Lord Mantis again, which I started doing. Never really got into'em beyond a few cool tracks, but today I decided to give them an honest shake, and damn I should have a while ago! Completed Death Mask, and am currently halfway into Pervertor. Listening to Levia as I write this, and having fun with it. I'd post, but all the YouTube vids have the album art, which might get me pegged for gore. So instead, have some Nice Teeth Whore. This was when they had Indian's singer though, so its not quite the same. Close enough though

The first one just sounds like someone just learning how to play the guitar trying too hard to sound creepy.

The second one literally sounds like a drunk man trying to fingerbang a guitar while rambling incoherently. I have literally seen homeless people on street corners give a better performance than this.

Also people need to stop trying to be edgy with sex in media. It just makes you look like 50 Shades of Grey, which was essentially what a virgin pretending to be an expert on BDSM sounds like.

>trying too hard to sound creepy

eh, whether you find it creepy or not is kind of subjective I think. I think it's pretty creepy but not in a like "oo I'm terrified" way but more like a "there is something hauntingly thrilling about listening to this."

>just learning how to play the guitar


Well, he has had a VERY lengthy and prolific career, but I believe that first one was his debut in the 70s, so he may not have been good at guitar, but I don't think he was really trying to impress with guitar skills, he plays in a very jagged, almost disonant way, like I said free-form (possibly improvised, I'm not sure), it's more about a specific style/atmopshere for the album rather than technical ability with shit like complex solos or whatever.

>I have literally seen homeless people on street corners give a better performance than this.


well tell them to go record an album lol. like I said this guy has a career off of his music, he's obviously not very mainstream but people know and like him, he has a "cult following" so to speak. I would imagine that he makes money considering he was able to release like 50 albums, and that can't have been super cheap.

>people need to stop trying to be edgy with sex in media


I agree, but on the second album, the lyrics were not overtly sexual, I don't think there was actually any direct reference to sex, it was built on very vague pervyness rather than blatant vulgarity like 50 Shades. I think it's interesting. Like I said I've never heard anyone execute a lyrical concept like that, at least not in a "folk" album.

You should have more than the basics of an instrument down before pursuing a professional career out of playing it.

I've explained in detail why I enjoy the music but you two just seem fixated on his technical ability, so I'm not sure what else to say.

There's more to music than how good you are at your instrument. I would argue some of the best artists could barely play, because they had the creativity to create interesting music that didn't depend on instrumental virtuosity.

Eeeeh... that sounds like a cop-out really. The idea behind any sort of art is to get good at it. To make it into a craft and do something with it.

If you're not good at something, do something you are good at. If you're a creative type find a medium in which your creativity can actually produce something of merit. I consider myself creative but I have absolutely zero musical talent, so I don't do anything related to music, nor would I even attempt it.

A. You can be very technically skilled and be utter garbage at making music (see Dragonforce).

B. There is no such thing as good or bad in a subjective medium, simply things people like and don't like.

The idea that technical achievement is required for being a good musician is essentially a holdover for when the elite music schools held authority over what was good taste. It is useless now.

I 100% agree with this actually, but again the thing you are not understanding is that "being really good at guitar/other instrument" doesn't guarantee that you can use that instrument to make a really interesting/innovative/atmospheric etc. album.

as Shucc mentions >>41991913 there are lots of musicians/bands who are very skilled at their instruments but have absolutely no songwriting abilities and/or no interesting ideas/concepts for an album.

the skill it takes to perform well with your instrument and the skill it takes to write/compose an original song/album are two different things, that's what you gotta get.

Throughout history there have been plenty of famous musicians who have talent in one area but not another, like you've got pop artists who can sing great but they have a team of other artists to write all their songs for them.

I don't think Jandek was trying to be the next Hendrix or something, obviously. His style is much more folk-ish and folk has never been a genre that places a lot of emphasis on technical skill, not that I'm aware of at least.

and as Shucc also said there's the whole subjectivity, you say Jandek sounds like a random homeless guy, and that's fine I guess, but to me he honestly seems brilliant.

Wrong. Music/art does not seek to achieve the same goal as what you are talking about.

When you hire someone to build a specific kind of door for you, you have an objective goal set in mind that you want them to succeed in. This is not the same as music. There is no form of objectivity in music that guarantees everyone will like it the same way you can objectively measure how well a door works.

These things are absolutely incomparable, and I have seen people make this comparison countless times, and they are wrong every time.

Can you objectively measure how well a door works? If a song is supposed to impart a feeling or "express yourself" then how is that not a goal which can succeed or fail? You sound like a man who's never built ateps out of beick if you think it's not the same as makimg music or painting.

what people feel and how people express themselves are way more subjective than how well a door works.

the same song can make tons of different people feel completely different. Buckethead can play guitar extremely well and lots of people are wowed by it, but I find the majority of his output to be boring wank. You could argue Adele is a good singer but even though she has a pretty voice I think she is lifeless and bland, yet millions of people disagree with me and are reduced to tears by her songs.

Meanwhile, a door that works is just a door that works. Nobody says "oh man this door functions well but I don't feel like it's right for me." they just open the door and walk through it and thus the craftsman has objectively succeeded in his task.

do you see what I mean?

also, as far as expressing yourself goes, there are infinitely more ways to express yourself than there are to build a door correctly. sometimes you want to express ugly or negative feelings, so you don't want to write beautiful melodies or harmonies, instead you want dissonance and abstract textures and stuff.

I feel like you've never built something with your hands if you think this is at all true. People have definitely said those words and there are an infinite amount of ways to build a door. Way to recontextualize its surroundings, aesthetic concerns, tradeoffs to be made in its functional concerns, etc. If what your saying is true, then artisans wouldn't exist, door-making wouldn't be a profession and all doors would be the same design since we'd have found the perfect door by now.

>what people feel and how people express themselves are way more subjective than how well a door works.

I can feel that my shit smells like roses. I can also feel that my mellow sax is super aggressive and heavy. The only thing that matters is the listeners feel just like the homeowners feel about their door. Music succeeds if it imparts a feeling in the listener in the same way a gasket succeeds if it keeps fluids from leaking.

Take writing for example. No one gives a shit how the author felt when they wrote their fanfiction. If the vocabulary is poor, it's in constant active voice, the writing is breezy but imprecise; then it's likely bad writing. Writing can absolutely fail to impart a feeling it was meant to. Writing is a craft and can be criticized on observable merits.

So far your argument seems to be just repeating "Art as an act of creation is different from the act of creating anything else. It just is! It just is!" I'm detecting a little bit of the old high art/craftsman snobbery here.

Okay but I thought you were saying there was an objective way to succeed in crafting a door and thus if it is comparable to music as an art, then there is an objective way to succeed in composing a song/singing/writing lyrics etc.

If that's NOT the case, then what are you even arguing against here? Because I'm saying that music is subjective. I don't know much about craftsmanship but I thought that you were using it to try and make an (invalid) point about how there is an objective way to be good at guitar. So what exactly is your point?

>Music succeeds if it imparts a feeling in the listener


And I agree with this as well. Those Jandek albums, the whole source of this argument we are all having, impart an extremely strong feeling on me. Feelings of being creeped out, feeling tension and suspense and madness etc. So in my mind, Jandek succeeded with making those albums. But that is my subjective opinion. Obviously everyone else itt seems to disagree. But that's the crux of everything right there. That's what proves music is subjective. Because one person can think something sounds incredible when another person thinks it sounds like trash. And neither of them are "right", it's just an opinion.

also, as far as all the writing stuff goes--I think writing, or more specifically language itself, is more objective than music because language is very different than sound. Sound is much more abstract and complex than letters and words. It's much easier to point out objective flaws in a book than with a song. You can always point out, "hey, you spelled that word wrong" but there's not really any such thing as a wrong note when composing a song. People will try to tell you there is, but the reality is you can make a beautiful song composed of a really bizarre set of sounds, whereas with literature you HAVE to follow certain structures because it gets to a point where if you spell enough things wrong, it's objectively unreadable by anyone. But music never becomes unlistenable by anyone due to how its composed.

You seem to put a lot of emphasis on the creative process without being too concerned with the product produced from that process.

To me, at lest, it seems like trying to bake something from scratch. I can mix ingredients that have never been put together and slap it in the oven. It doesn't mean what comes out is going to taste good or is even edible. Trying new things is fine and innovation is good. However not everything that is new or creative ends up good. That's all I'm saying.

...what? The creative process is important but in most cases I agree that the end result is in fact what matters most. Which is why I said that the Jandek albums make me feel strongly and I enjoy them--to me they are a great end result of a great creative process.

Food/cooking isn't really the same as music. I mean I don't know much about it but I think there are rules and results that would be objective. Literal taste in terms of food is different than taste in music/sound. Again it's another comparison that I don't think makes sense because the two things are just so radically different.

I also think music taste is very relative to what you are exposed to while you are growing up, and also how much you have listened to in general. Someone who has listened to hundreds of albums in dozens of genres is going to have a completely different perspective than someone who has just listened to the radio and TV music their entire life.

A lot of people have this preconception that all great music is supposed to be beautiful and complex when there is so much more to the art form than that, and "ugly" or "simple" sounds can often provide experiences just as good as the beautiful complex ones. It's all about perspective. And there's nothing wrong with enjoying both.

Like I don't get why it has to be this big war of "No you're wrong I'm right, if you like/don't like this you have SHIT TASTE AND DON'T UNDERSTAND ART!!" people get so competitive even when they barely know what they're talking about.

Except it really isn't. Think about it, the majority of people can tell, even without a background in music, when something sounds off or out of tune. It's an inherent thing that isn't just pure objectiveness. Some people may be more tolerant to it than others, sure. However, you can not sit there and say there is no such thing as 'bad' music because that is objectively false. If that were true musical theory wouldn't even exist and any random combination of sounds would be considered music when it most definitely isn't. Music has rules and while pushing those rules can yield interesting results, there is a point in which those rules become blatantly broken and once you do that you are no longer making music, you're just stringing sounds together at random.

it's called theory because it's not a proof, if it were a proof in the same sense a solution to a mathematic equation is a proof than there would be no point in continuing to make music because humans would have already figured out what the objectively best music is and that's all anyone would ever want to listen to because if it was objectively the best, everyone would love it and nobody would dispute its value or quality. But no such work of music exists, sadly, and that is precisely because it is subjective.

>there is a point in which those rules become blatantly broken and once you do that you are no longer making music, you're just stringing sounds together at random.


breaking the rules is actually very important in music. not all music follows theory, and randomness is actually used in the composition of a lot of music. this is a specific subject of music that there is a ton to talk about and I don't have the eloquence or knowledge to do it justice, but there is stuff like indeterminacy where randomness is a huge part of the composition process, or "prepared" instruments that introduce randomness to performance, or music based on mathematical equations and random generations, or music formed from improvisation based on abstract graphic notation that isn't even written in terms that are technically musical and can be interpreted in almost any way by the performer...like, your knowledge of this stuff really isn't that deep, there are plenty of people (myself included) who would argue that any sound or combination of sounds can be music, and there are even some people who believe that ALL sound IS music. There is extensive writing on these ideas and subjects (most of which I have not read yet, I am just aware of it).

Music theory is not a set of rules to decide what is and isn't music and it has changed a lot over time.

The thing is that there are things people in general understand to work when it comes to music. Like objectively if someone randomly plucks on a guitar without any sort of structure about 99% of people will say that isn't music.

A theory doesn't invalidate facts. It simply means that we have a lot of facts, just not ALL the facts. Gravity is still a theory because we know it works and we understand the mechanics of it, but we don't know EXACTLY what causes it to happen.

Something being a theory doesn't invalidate the facts we DO know about the theory. When it comes to musical composition, there are obviously things that work and things that don't. If that wasn't the case, absolutely NO musical structure would exist. No melodies, no rhythms, no timing. We know people can differentiate between what a rhythm is and what random noise is, however it's still a theory because we don't know exactly WHY people have the ability to do this, even though the majority clearly do.

Throwing all of that out the window by dismissing it as a theory is not practical.

I don't even know where to start with this, you have neither the musical background, nor the knowledge to be making these claims. There is no inherent, objective standard of quality in music, like that's literally not how art works.

I guess the first thing to tackle would be
>the majority of people can tell... when something sounds off or out of tune.
This is laughably false. Not only does the untrained ear have difficulties sometimes even recognizing the intervalic relations between pitches (for example being able to hear the difference between a major third and a perfect fourth and correctly identify them) but your notion that people can go beyond that and understand when multiple notes being played together are out of tune (and be right a large percentage of the time) is beyond silly. Sure the human ear can distinguish between intervals roughly 5 cents away from each other, an interval much smaller than the ones you are likely to be talking about, however the layman usually can't accurately identify a detuning. For example people commonly mistake resonances within the harmonic series that clashes with notes to be out of tune. If you have a C Major triad across three voices, and say the voice playing the E of that chord has a particular build up in the 6th or 9th harmonic, it is not uncommon for the untrained ear to hear the chord as being out of tune, which it isn't. Further more without being told the average layman would have no concept that all of the music they listen to is out of tune (unless they are listening to something in just intonation or 56/200+Edo) because of our tempered system of tuning. Furthermore many styles of music built on the lineage of west African music (blues, R&B, earlier styles of rock and so on) are frequently played with chords that are demonstrably out of tune from a western perspective. Both the major third, and dominant seven in a pentatonic African tuning system will not only be slightly off our equally tempered system, but in the case of the major third, will also be off in a system of just intonation, and even pythagorean intonation. Chords played with these intervals are demonstrably out of tune by the western system you are no doubt applying here. This is also to say nothing of the microtonal intervals that would sound dissonant (or out of tune) to our western ears, but are commonplace in Indian, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, and various other Asian cultures.

Your point about pushing the rules vs braking the rules is also equally laughable. Question: Are the works of Arnold Schoenberg, or Béla Bartók, objectively bad music because the harmony they employed would have been considered noise in the time of Bach? The way we hear, and relate, to music has been an obvious progression, and to assert that we will one day reach a brick wall that divides good and bad music is both a lofty claim, and unsubstantiated. Contrary to what some consider in academia the western ear is still becoming more and more accepting of dissonance and dense harmonic information. It wasn't that long before Bach that the music of Europe was still mostly monophonic, and it wan't that long after Beethoven that we invented 12 tone serialism. While the average layman may not listen to Stockhausen on a regular basis the modern ear is equipped to understand his music. This doesn't only relate to harmony, but complex rhythmic structures, as well as harmonic content in regards to individual voices. The rules about what are good arrangements of sounds, and how to produce those sounds are in constant flux. 100 years ago the guitar distortion from the 70's would have sounded like Merzbow does today, which is to say nothing of modern gain sounds that are much richer in harmonic information. This doubly applies to modern subtractive synthesis (or FM synthesis for that matter) as 100 years ago the sound of a Moog Model D would have been considered ugly, or harsh. These things are always in flux, and generally move in the direction more complexity, and more adventurous sounds. You literally only need to look back 50 years to the music of the 60's to see just how fast this process is.

From all of the other posts you make in music threads your argument boils down to: I don't like X because it sounds bad to me/is too harsh/is too experimental therefor this music is obviously objectively bad. This makes you look dumb, don't do this.

You are taking this waaaaaaaay beyond the context of what I was talking about. Let me give you a basic example.

https://youtu.be/-w-58hQ9dLk

This is considered funny because 99% of people listening to this can tell, "Okay this is a really shitty rendition." and the reason they can tell that is because they can actually tell the difference between this and what it's supposed to sound like. In fact, even if you DON'T know what the Jurassic Park theme sounds like, if you hear this, 99% of people will go, "That sounds really bad." This is not subjective at that point. There is OBVIOUSLY something about this that makes it register as 'bad' to the mass majority, which is why this joke translates to most people.

If music were 100% subjective, most music would end up sounding like this because people would be completely unable to recognize the difference between this and the original composition.

i fucking love sabbath so much, and this riff is just so good. like...sure ozzy sucks as a vocalist, but he's an amazing songwriter(kinda).
>>41992027
i thought their name change was a sign they were no longer punk. seriously, it...if you were honestly offended by their name, why? the name wasn't pro-andrew jackson, it kinda...emphasized that he was a monster. the people who got butthurt over it obviously: a.) don't know shit about punk and b.) have no actual clue about american history.

literally nothing was offensive, unless you were stupid enough to think that the name was somehow pro-andrew jackson. yes, i actually felt betrayed by that and their new "let's be a worse mountain goats" direction, they were an interesting and vital part of folk punk. their name change kinda killed a lot of the momentum of the folk punk movement, with ramshackle glory's disbanding and pat's retirement being the final nails in the coffin.

yes i'm actually a little salty still, i was deep into folk punk, and seeing andrew jackson jihad basically shit all over the scene was a bit of a betrayal. it was kinda expected that they'd sell out, but they sold out in the most hard to swallow way. their name change wasn't some acknowledging of the wrongs of history, it was defanging a really clever jab at united states history, and them making it out like it was a correct move upsets me. it...sure the name could have been offensive, but...punk is kinda about offending in order to skew society.

it was especially awful because the people who called the name offensive obviously never actually listened to their older work, they were just jumping on a band in the wake of the whole viet cong name change. i'm not about to trash "le ess jay double-jews" because that's some entry level /mu/ shit, but andrew jackson jihad were kinda spineless in that they didn't even try to explain why their name wasn't offensive.

they said that having "Jihad" in their name was "offensive to Muslims" or something like that...

and then they release an album called The Bible 2.

so yeah I don't like to blame SJWs but that's a pretty clear example of a band being hypocritical about which people they choose to disrespect.

although I will say, The Bible 2 is actually a pretty underrated album, there are some really powerful songs on it.

listen to The Bible 2 and then listen to Christmas Island again after a while, I was disappointed with it at first two but my friend convinced me to give it another chance a few months later and I actually really like it now, it's like a strong 7 light 8, it has some of their best songs honestly

>>41993526
...have you listened to can't maintain?

i feel like you wouldn't say that if you had. like...that is their best album, it has such gems as truckers are the blood, love in a time of human papilloma virus, sense;sensibility, who are you, and love will fuck us apart. i will give it a chance tho, i owe it to them to give it a fair shot.

i've heard the bible 2 has some good songs, but who are you is...emotionally searing and that kinda extends to the rest of can't maintain. part of why christmas island fell flat is that it felt like they were trying to ape the mountain goats, and in doing so they shed a lot of what made their music emotionally satisfying. their old music was so raw as to be uncomfortable. christmas island lacked that feeling on a first listen, so i kinda stopped listening.

*edit*
this post came off being more snobby and aggressive than i wanted. i'm sorry chewy.

it's okay, but honestly, everything you said is what I originally believed, just trust me, listen to Christmas Island, then wait a few months and listen to it again, and you might like it, that's what happened to me.

and of course I've heard Can't Maintain, however my favorite "AJJ" album is People Who Can Eat People... . I think their only album I haven't heard is their debut which everyone says is shit anyways.

i keep getting hooked on nasheeds. i love the vocal work, there's some really amazing vocal harmonies that really don't pop up other places. mostly because they don't subscribe to a sect of a religion that says instruments are not allowed. also the lyrics are...odious to say the least.

i feel really guilty liking them tho, especially since the people making this music would probably want to do awful things to most of my friends and loved ones.

i have to say that i do not support isis/isil/is/isis affiliates in any way, and condemn their regressive bullshit.

^^^this is a Norwegian band recommended to me by someone IRL who is going to see one of their very rare and intense live performances soon

it reminds me a lot of the dronier, more ritualistic songs on Swans' albums from this decade, particularly The Seer and The Glowing Man, although they never reach the same aggressiveness or sheer massiveness of Swans.

speaking of Swans, I relistened to their "final" live album Deliquescence (which I own the limited CD of btw) and it blew my mind, I originally would have rated it like a strong 6 but now it's a strong 9 to me, I had it blasting in my headphones at 70% volume to the point where it almost hurt but I LOVED it, something about the drumming in Swans' music and also the way they layer their instruments, and Gira's borderline-demonic droning singing and wailing, his powerful voice even at the age of 63 is just incredible to me, not to mention how him and the various people who have been in Swans have gone through so many interesting style changes throughout their career since the 80s and they've still got it, the band is still releasing masterpiece after masterpiece.

sunflower is one of my favorite songs of theirs, it feels like a shaped note singing song(idumea and antioch in particular) with how the organ and what i assume is a hydraulus sounds. also in the tempo, but yeah c93 is super dope.

>3 Compositions (EEMHM) 2011 features the first studio recordings of Braxton’s Echo Echo Mirror House Music—the latest conceptual innovation in Braxton’s five-decade career. With his Ghost Trance Music, Braxton created a framework for his musicians to freely explore his entire compositional output in each concert; with his Diamond Curtain Wall music, he brought his own interactive electronics into his improvisational palette. Now with Echo Echo Mirror House Music, Anthony Braxton brings these ideas to the next level. In this ensemble of longtime collaborators, all the musicians wield iPods in addition to their instruments, while navigating scores that combine cartography and evocative graphic notation, creating a musical tapestry combining live performance and sampled sound from Braxton’s extensive recorded discography.


> it features several musicians (in practice, 7-14) armed with their instruments and iPods. The iPods contain recordings from Braxton’s extensive back catalog. At given points in a piece, the musicians can choose whether to play or to provide one of these historical recordings instead. The result is an information-dense listening experience, often with at least 3-4 distinct melodies occurring simultaneously.


>ike his other music systems, EEMHM involves conducted improvisation and non-traditional notation. On these pieces, the latter consist of actual maps of airports, subway systems, highways, and so on. The players are encouraged to improvise “travel” through these virtual landscapes. The outcome is something reminiscent of a journey through a sound installation, where you can simultaneously hear different pieces of music played at varying intensities from different speakers.

TRIGGER WARNING: MASSIVE EAR RAPE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLzEgrHKxNM&t=1072s

this is a genre called "harsh noise wall"

it's literally meant to be a "wall" of harsh noise, so it's like even harsher harsh noise because most harsh noise at least has rhythmic qualities but harsh noise wall is literally nothing but extreme texture with very little dynamics.

at first I was like "c'mon this can't possibly take any effort" but then I did some googling and read some stuff about how its made and it's actually pretty interesting.

I guess with harsh noise wall, the artists in the genre, instead of placing importance on the composition, place much more importance on creating the sounds for the composition. so they build these massive sounds and textures and then just drag them out and don't really change or evolve them much, but it's just meant to be this intense, repetitive, meditative style of music.

the "song" I linked is from a five-part album that is nearly five hours long and I have only listened to one part, but like, I love it.

so I just got back from Newbury Comics, which is in the huge fucking mall near where I live. I actually did the driving there but my mom freaked out on me because I went too fast on a certain road and completely fucked up a turn so I got irritated and said she should drive home.

HOWEVER, my dad had gotten me a $50 gift card for that store and as soon as we found it in the mall I was like "awww sheeeeeiiiit!!" because there was SO MUCH great stuff there, I got so excited and just looked at everything, the place was huge and had records CDs, cassettes, t-shirts, comics, manga, a small amount of "regular" books (mostly garbage like that "Subtle Art Of Not Giving A F*ck" that seems to be everywhere), hoodies, figurines etc.

I legit spent like half an hour trying to figure out what I wanted. they had a Wu-Tang Clan hoodie that was awesome but would have used up the whole gift card so I declined. they had NASA t-shirts which made me think of the Earth-chan meme. they had some band shirts I would have worn but none of them were in my size which was a bummer. they had fucking J Dilla and Eminem cassettes which I didn't even know existed.

they had TONS of albums I love, and the prices weren't too unreasonable--ranged from just 16 bucks to close to 30 for the more "valuable" stuff, the new albums and the double albums and stuff.

I ended up getting three records: Swans - Filth, Aphex Twin - Richard D James Album, and the ultimate /mu/ meme album--you know the one, a legit 10/10.

I'm pretty happy with that. Gotta make sure I can get my record player set back up properly now that the christmas tree has been taken down.

The people who actually made those games don't get a cent of that money, instead it goes to the opportunistic greedy porkies who "acquired" the rights. 'ti'n't right, 'ti'n't fittin', 'ti'n't proper.

Definitely. The full title is "Free Culture: How big media uses technology and the law to lock down culture and control creativity". It's licensed under the CC BY-NC license, so you can probably (legally) download it online for free, or you can get a book. I got one for Christmas.

I also got Little Brother for Christmas. From the Amazon description and the back of the book
"Marcus, a.k.a "w1n5t0n," is only seventeen years old, but he figures he already knows how the system works–and how to work the system. Smart, fast, and wise to the ways of the networked world, he has no trouble outwitting his high school's intrusive but clumsy surveillance systems.
But his whole world changes when he and his friends find themselves caught in the aftermath of a major terrorist attack on San Francisco. In the wrong place at the wrong time, Marcus and his crew are apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security and whisked away to a secret prison where they're mercilessly interrogated for days.
When the DHS finally releases them, Marcus discovers that his city has become a police state where every citizen is treated like a potential terrorist. He knows that no one will believe his story, which leaves him only one option: to take down the DHS himself."

i kinda grew out of my breakcore/raggacore phase, but bong ra will always hold a special place in my heart.

this song is a kinda...he did a remix of the burning spear song jah kingdom(a fantasic song btw) and then used that as a sample for another version of the song with new vocals done by a session singer(a common trope in dub reggae and later derivatives like jungle, drum and bass, grime and dubstepnot brostep, reeeeee) and...i can't help but love how faithful it is to the traditions of the genre. it's also got a really cool break freakout that just throws fantastic walls of acrobatic drum patterns and noise at you that's...it's a sensory overload.

i don't know if i've made it clear how much i love reggae, but i am a massive nerd for reggae.

^^^@Starshine

over the course of the last few months I have been listening to Ryuichi Sakamoto's discography mostly chronologically. for now I'm just doing solo studio albums--no YMO, live, or film score stuff yet.

almost all of them have been great. there's just something so...idk...sensitive about his music, something unique that flows through all the different styles he does. I just read several recent interviews with him and he seems so nice and smart and passionate about art and creativity and nature and he just seems like such a sweet, friendly man.

he was pretty sexy when he was young, and he aged very gracefully into a handsome elderly man. he's enormously talented too, he's been playing piano since he was like ten, he also plays synths, he composes both "regularly" and electronically, he even starred alongside David Bowie in a movie. he has gone through such a broad range of styles that is so impressive to me.

there's just something so touching to me about him and his music, he's becoming a favorite honestly.

it's really amazing how the beats on these tapes tend to be so simple yet they create these wonderful atmospheres with the lo-fi aesthetic and the styles of rapping.

Dumbfounded, downtrodden and dejected
Crestfallen, grief-stricken and exhausted
Trapped in my room while the house was burnin’

Screaming for help, but somebody keeps on
Telling me to settle down

I can’t find any way
I can’t find any way to relax
I can’t do anything
I can’t do anything of impact
I emptied out my brain
In hopes that I would have some success
Finding some clarity
But I just made a mess
What’s the point of having a voice?
What’s the point of having a voice
When it gets stuck inside your throat?

I’ll ramble incessantly
On pointless rattlings in my head
First person shooter games
Guitar tones, ELO arrangements
The differences in an MP3
And a vinyl record that you can hear!
But when it means something
I always disappear

The joys that framed my life

When you can’t get any rest

It came on suddenly
I haven’t spoken to another person in a month
Well, small talk, OBVIOUSLY
But nothing beyond barely catching up
I have lots of things to say
But they’re gonna sound dumb dumb dumb
I have lots of things to say
But I’m just an idiot

So where can you go when the troubles inside you
Make your limbs feel like they’re covered in lead?
How can you solve all the problems around you
When you can’t even solve the ones in your head?
I need you right now
I need you right now
Before I feel totally dead

Shriek into the toxic well
Where everybody’s screaming for themselves
And leaves no space to process feeling lost
These overwhelming distractions
Lead to powerlessness
And I feel too weak to walk it off

It’s like somebody traded out my skin
For something I could never feel good in
And told me, “suck it up, get used to it.”
To breathe and repeat it
Instead of listening

TV stars don’t care about who you are
TV stars don’t care about who you are
Don’t care about who
Don’t care about who you are

I can’t spend another night alone
‘Cause the echoes are too distracting
Getting high and diving into holes
‘Til I can’t even dream of sleeping
And getting away from it
Getting away from it
Ooh

Listen to some stupid song

Every night you go to bed
You wake up just a little more in pain
Every time you’re dressing for a sunny day
The clouds surprise you with rain
Every cigarette you smoke
‘cause you’re addicted to a quiet source of company
Every time you told ‘em you were busy
‘cause you’d rather go to sleep

9 times out of 10 I’ll be stoned on the subway
Reading backlit directives of what I should do
Dodging eye contact with anyone who looks my way
9 times out of 10 I’ll be thinking of you

Every little victory don’t matter
If nobody seems to care
Winning ten bucks on a scratch-off lotto ticket
The keys you thought disappeared
Every vacant moment you’ve exhausted all the options
That you thought could fill the hole
Every star you’re wishing on
Just hoping for a little self-control
Tired of feeling selfish
Tired of feeling restless
Tired of feeling down

They can profit from their lies again
They can shake our souls

We’re not gonna let them win, oh no
We’re not gonna let them win, oh no

They can make us feel afraid
And try to turn it into hate, oh yeah

food for thought: is stuff like white noise and brown noise "music"? not noise as in the actual genre noise but this form of literal noise people just put on for sleep or studying rather than for entertainment or artistic purposes.

personally I kind of ascribe to the idea that virtually any sound can be viewed as music in certain aspects, so I feel like the answer is yes. I mean this is hella relaxing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcWgjCDPiP4 and many forms of music are made with the intent of inducing relaxation in the listener.

and even though this kind of noise is technically "non-musical" it still has to be sonically composed as other kinds of electronic music would be.

>>42007213
I would say actual perfect white noise may not technically be music, because music needs variation of some kind. Longplayer, for example - a track designed to last a thousand years - was basically designed to have the minimum amount of variation needed to hold up to these expectations. It's a great ambient piece I'd recommend streaming, and a good example of how low you can go.

https://longplayer.org/listen/live-stream/

But that's not necessarily a definitive judgement, as definitions of nebulous things like music change all the time, and those that exist are always questionable or not even widely accepted.

The intro felt a bit out of tune for me and it didn't really have a pop vibe to me at all. It sounded like a Jazz-style R&B song.

There is literally nothing pop about this at all.

When I think 'Pop' the things that come to mind are things like this:

When I say 'experimental', I mean in the way that when she sings she quickly moves from high to low notes constantly and from at least my perspective, almost seemingly at random. I can't really follow along with the melody because it just seems completely chaotic.

That's just how it came across to me. Then again I hardly ever listen to this style of music, so maybe that's just how this style works.

I thought I'd never enjoy metal. But I've been listening to it all day today and yesterday and genuinely enjoying it.

Getting into a whole new genre of music is always awesome. I remember when it first happened with classical and jazz a couple years ago.

You really never know what you'll end up liking that for a long time you think you never possibly could. I think sometimes it just takes time and giving things repeated chances.

It's so sad that Kate and Peter didn't do so much more music together. Kate is credited on Peter's Games Without Frontiers and No Self Control as well as the most famous duet Peter did. She was his spiritual and performance student in so many ways.

A coward dies a thousand deaths
A soldier dies but once
They say pussy and paper is poetry power and pistols
Plotting on murdering motherfuckers 'fore they get you
Picturing pitiful punk niggas copping pleas
Puffin weed as I position myself to clock G's
My enemies scatter in suicidal situations
Never to witness the wicked shit that they was facing
Pockets is packed with presidents, pursue your riches
Evading the player hating tricks, while hitting switches
Bitches is bad-mouth, cause brawling motherfuckers is bold
But y'all some hoes, the game should be sewed
I'm sick of psychotic society somebody save me
Addicted to drama so even mama couldn't raise me
Even the preacher and all my teachers couldn't reach me
I run in the streets and puffin weed wit my peeps
I'm ducking the cop, I hit the weed as I'm clutching my glock
Niggas is hot when I hit the block, what if I die tonight
If I die tonight
If I die tonight
If I die tonight
Tonight's the night I get in some shit
Polishing pistols prepare for battle pass the pump
When I get to popping niggas is dropping then they done
Calling the coroner come collect the fucking corpse
He got it by killer, preoccupied with being boss
Revenge is the method, whenever stepping keep a weapon close
Adversaries are overdosed over deadly notes
Jealous niggas and broke bitches equal packed jails
Hit the block and fill your pockets making crack sales
Picture perfection pursuing paper with a passion
Visions of prisons for all the pussies that I blasted
Running with criminals individuals with no remorse
Try to stop me my pistol posse's using deadly force
In my brain all I can think about is fame
The police know my name, a different game, ain't a thing changed
I'm seeing cemetery photos of my peers
Conversatin' like they still here, if I die tonight
If I die tonight
If I die tonight
If I die tonight
Tonight's the night I get in some shit
Pussy and paper is poetry power and pistols
Plotting on murdering motherfuckers 'fore they get you
Pray to the heavens three-fifty-sevens to the sky
And I hope I'm forgiven for Thug Living when I die
I wonder if heaven got a ghetto for Thug niggas
A stress free life and a spot for drug dealers
Pissing while practicing how to pimp and be a player
Overdose of a dick, while drinking liquor when I lay her
Pistol whipping these simps, for being petrified and lame
Disrespecting the game, praying for punishment and pain
Going insane, never die, live eternal, who shall I fear?
Don't shed a tear for me nigga I ain't happy here
I hope they bury me and send me to my rest
Headlines reading murdered to death, my last breath
Take a look picture a crook on his last stand
Motherfuckers don't understand, if I die tonight

Come along with me
To a town beside the sea
We can wander through the forest
And do so as we please.

Come along with me
To a cliff under a tree.
Where we'll gaze upon the water
As an everlasting dream

All of my affections
I'll give them all to you
Maybe by next summer
We won't have changed our tune

'Cause we'll want to be
In this town beside the sea
Making up new numbers
And living so merrily

All of my affections
Give them all to you
I'll be here for you always
And always be for you

Come along with me
To a town beside the sea
We can wander through the forest
And do so as we please

Living so merrily

I saw the wolf, the fox and the hare
I saw the wolf and the fox dancing
All three circled around the tree
I saw the wolf, the fox and the hare
All three circled around the tree
Circled the sprouting bush

Here the whole year over is filled with work
To earn a few pennies
And the whole month I didn't see anything
When I saw the wolf, the fox and the hare
There is nothing left for us any more
I saw the hare, the fox and the wolf

Shitheads who think Simon and Garfunkel wrote Scarborough Fair deserve a good defenestrating.

On the other hand, the pony version of Don't Mine at Night deserves to overshadow the original.

I know that, what I said in my post was simply that Smashmouth were NOT the original recorders.

And actually, according to wikipedia, Niel Diamond was the first one to record it (in 1965), but The Monkees were the first ones to commercially release it (in 1966) and then The Four Tops were the first to cover it (1967) and then Smashmouth turned it into a meme about 40 years later.

RIP. One year away from 90. Free jazz innovator.

Listening to this album is just, crazy. So many abrasive melodies and rhythms intersecting and playing off of each other, it feeds my ears, I try to pay attention to as much detail as I can but it changes so fast. I feel like it's so hard for me to really penetrate this music mentally and visually the way I can with most music. It's pretty fascinating and invigorating.

Spock's Beard - "Crack The Big Sky"

Uplifting as hell song. Spock's Beard has this really interesting sort of dynamic in that they play a brand of hard prog pop rock. It's really evident on this album, and though they have had a few lineup changes throughout the years that has modified their sound in some big ways, they remain a fantastic band with a great sound.

To be honest I was impressed that it managed to actually do a good job of replicating an 80's pop feel.

My issue with it was the singer. Most of the song is literally just him singing one note. It's the musical equivalent of edging and then just stopping without finishing. Like, you're waiting for the climax and it just doesn't show up. He just does this monotone droning and it's like you're waiting for the buildup and release but instead it just like... Abruptly stops. It's actually kind of frustrating to listen to.

The rest of it isn't too bad though.

I'm glad you actually like this though. I was beginning to think you actually believed that every musical genre was just a different style of hip-hop.

try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apsaGEuWcJw <<<same singer, same band, same album, and this probably does exactly what you felt that other song lacks, the chorus is much more bombastic, so to speak.

honestly, I know you don't really listen to full albums, but I think you would really like the album these songs are from. to me, every song on it is great, like there literally aren't any spots I would consider weak.

>I was beginning to think you actually believed that every musical genre was just a different style of hip-hop.


uhh I'm not sure why you would think that honestly...I listen to several genres that often have nothing at all to do with hip-hop such as experimental rock, all kinds of electronic stuff, all kinds of classical and jazz, and even a decent amount of pop...although I will admit that hip-hop is among my favorite genres and I am always interested in seeing how it can be combined with other genres.

Mainly because every time you recommend a song to me and say "Check this song out, it's <genre> so you might like it." it's basically just hip-hop.

in all fairness, that last song I rec'd, the SZA one, that really wasn't hip-hop, it was RnB, and while there are some similarities, to most listeners there is a pretty clear distinction, RnB is often more focused on singing and melodic instrumentation whereas hip-hop is generally about rapping and rhythmic electronic beats.

of course, there are crossovers/fusions and exceptions plenty of the time, but still.

Granted, but you presented it to me as a pop song and it really wasn't even close.

The last two definitely have 80's pop influences and I'm actually kind og impressed by the composition of the music itself, however like before the second song you just linked suffers from the same thing as the first. The singer is just too monotone. He hardly varies in tone at all when he sings. I don't know if it's a style choice or what but it's grating to listen to, which is a shame because otherwise I think these two songs might be enjoyable.

Believe it or not I've actually been listening to a bit of Emenem recently. I don't know how you feel about him but personally if there's a rapper I can enjoy it's him because his lyrics are incredibly clever.

I guess I considered it to be pop because compared to a lot of what I normally enjoy it is significantly more mainstream and accessible.

>however like before the second song you just linked suffers from the same thing as the first.


hm, I thought you would like it because the chorus is much more soaring and different than the verses even though he's kind of in the same style.

>Believe it or not I've actually been listening to a bit of Emenem recently. I don't know how you feel about him but personally if there's a rapper I can enjoy it's him because his lyrics are incredibly clever.


my opinion on Eminem is basically: early albums, fantastic; everything that comes after, either mediocre or complete trash.

Eminem would probably break top 20 rappers for me but really only in terms of lyricism/flow, as far as production of the beats and other aspects of the music, he falls short compared to many other artists, even his contemporaries. and he is NOT the GOAT like so many people say. he's just not. there are better rappers/lyricists in hip-hop.

honestly his songs that you posted are among his weakest output imo. if you want true quality Eminem, check out stuff like this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-3CmKofKTU

I feel like I'm walkin' a tight rope without a circus net
Poppin' Percocet, I'm a nervous wreck
I deserve respect but I work a sweat for this worthless check
I'm about to burst this Tec at somebody to reverse this debt
Minimum wage got my adrenaline caged
Full of venom and rage, especially when I'm engaged
And my daughter's down to her last diaper, it's got my ass hyper
I pray that God answers, maybe I'll ask nicer
Watchin' ballers while they're flossin' in their Pathfinders
These overnight stars becomin' autograph-signers
We all long to blow up and leave the past behind us
Along with the small fries and average half-pinters
But player-haters turnin' bitch like they have vaginas
Cause we see them dollar signs and let the cash blind us
Money'll brainwash you and leave your ass mindless
When snakes slither in the grass spineless

My life is full of empty promises and broken dreams
I'm hopin' things look up, but there ain't no job openings
I feel discouraged, hungry and malnourished
Livin' in this house with no furnace, unfurnished
And I'm sick of workin' dead-end jobs with lame pay
And I'm tired of being hired and fired the same day
But fuck it, if you know the rules to the game, play
Cause when we die we know we all goin' the same way
Cause it's cool to be player, but it sucks to be the fan
When all you need is bucks to be the man, plus a luxury sedan
I'm comfortable and roomy in a 6
But they threw me in the mix with all these gloomy lunatics
Who walk around depressed and smoke a pound of cess a day
And yesterday went by so quick it seems like it was just today
My daughter wants to throw the ball but I'm too stressed to play
Live half a life and throw the rest away

There's people that love me and people that hate me
But it's the evil that made me this backstabbin', deceitful and shady
I want the money, the women, the fortune and fame
If it means I end up burnin' in hell, scorchin' in flames
If it means I'm stealin' your checkbook and forgin' your name
This lifetime bliss for eternal torture and pain
Cause right now, I feel like just hit the rock bottom
I've got problems, now everybody on my block's got em
I'm screaming like them two cops when 2Pac shot em
Holding 2 Glocks, hope your doors got new locks on em
My daughter's feet ain't got no shoes or socks on em
And them rings you wearin' look like they got a few rocks on em
And while you flaunt em I could be takin' em to shops to pawn em
I got a couple of rings and a brand-new watch, you want em?
Cause I ain't never went gold off one song
I'm runnin' up on someone's lawn with guns drawn

this is probably my favorite hip-hop track ever in terms of lyricism, flow, and the beat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DI-DRbf_AZk

kind of a generic choice since pretty much every hip-hop fan worships this album, but it really is that good.

the thing is, Nas' flow isn't so straight-forward--it's much better to read the lyrics along to the actual song because they don't translate quite as well as plain text poetry. the rhythm of his flow is more varied/"abstract" then Eminem, more musical, in a sense.

the lyrics are gritty but also kind of playful and very poetic as opposed to Eminem who, while certainly good, tends to be a more straight-forward storyteller.

It ain't hard to tell, I excel, then prevail
The mic is contacted, I attract clientele
My mic check is life or death, breathing a sniper's breath
I exhale the yellow smoke of buddha through righteous steps
Deep like The Shinin', sparkle like a diamond
Sneak a uzi on the island in my army jacket lining
Hit the Earth like a comet, invasion
Nas is like the Afrocentric Asian, half-man, half-amazing
Cause in my physical, I can express through song
Delete stress like Motrin, then extend strong
I drank Moet with Medusa, give her shotguns in hell
From the spliff that I lift and inhale, it ain't hard to tell
The buddha monk's in your trunk, turn the bass up
Nas, stories by Aesop, place your loot up, parties I shoot up
Nas, I analyze, drop a Jewel
Inhale from the L, school a fool well, you feel it like braille
It ain't hard to tell, I kick the skill like Shaquille holds a pill
Vocabulary spills I'm Ill
Plus Matic, I freak beats slam it like Iron Shiek
Jam like a tech with correct techniques
So analyze me, surprise me, but can't magnetize me
Scanning while you're planning ways to sabotage me
I leave em froze like her-on in your nose
Nas'll rock well, it ain't hard to tell
This rhythmatic explosion, is what your frame of mind has chosen
I'll leave your brain stimulated, niggas is frozen
Speak with criminal slang, begin like a violin
End like Leviathan, it's deep well let me try again
Wisdom be leaking out my grapefruit troop
I dominate break loops, giving mics men-e-straul cycles
Street's disciple, I rock beats that's mega trifle
And groovy but smoother than moves by Villanova
Yet still a soldier, I'm like Sly Stallone in Cobra
Packing like a rasta in the weed spot
Vocals'll squeeze glocks, MC's eavesdrop
Though they need not to sneak
My poetry's deep, I never fell
Nas's raps should be locked in a cell
It ain't hard to tell


the whole album is a perfect 10/10 to me

See, I don't think the one you linked is that good. Here's some issues I have with it:

The lyrics are too simple and self-contained. Every verse is an individual unit and they're just coming off an assembly line. There is no creativity there. Secondly, the "It's rock bottom" lines are off beat. They come in slightly to early and are awkward. They don't compliment the lyrics, they're more like gaudy Christmas lights in march.

Compare this to for example in Not Afraid, where the lyrics change context as they flow. In particular this part:

"No more bee flingers, no more drama from now on
I promise to focus solely on handlin' my responsibilities as a father
So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof, like my daughters and raise it
You couldn't lift a single shingle on it! 'Cause the way I feel
I'm strong enough to go to the club or the corner pub
And lift the whole liquor counter up 'cause I'm raising the bar"

One thing in particular I like about Eminem is how he's able to change context in mid-rhyme. In the above example he goes from talking about raising a daughter to raising the roof which makes him feel strong enough to raise a liquor counter, which is a euphemism for raising the bar, which means to improve on quality. He quickly shifts the meanings of his words without having to do so in individual verses and I find that incredibly enjoyable and impressive.

In the one you linked he doesn't do that. Each verse is just a single line separate from every other line. It's bland and uninspired.

wat?

that Not Afraid line is hardly impressive at all, it's basically a silly pun

the Rock Bottom lyrics are far more emotional and intricately woven in terms of rhyme scheme

it seriously baffles me that you could think Not Afraid is better than Rock Bottom. most long-time Eminem fans (who aren't teenagers) agree that Not Afraid is a pretty generic sellout pop song. like, the album it's from is generally regarded as the album where Eminem officially turned on everything that made him great.

>>42034385

that's good, try this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wA49DaVmJWQ

this one isn't quite as good as the Nas one but it's one of my favorites because of the atmosphere that is established, and the fact that GZA doesn't rely on speed to make his rapping good, he has a much more laid-back style but it still works because his voice is so unique and he is able to really emphasize the perfect parts of each rhyme.

it's another one where it's better to read along to the song rather than just read it outside that context.

Fake niggas get flipped
In mic fights I swing swords and cut clowns
Shit is too swift to bite you record and write it down
I flow like the blood on a murder scene, like a syringe
On some wild out shit, to insert a fiend
But it was your op the shop stolen art
Catch a swollen heart from not rolling smart
I put mad pressure, on phony wack rhymes that get hurt
Shit's played like zodiac signs on sweatshirt
That's minimum, and feminine like sandals
My minimum table stacks a verse on a gamble
Energy is felt once the cards are dealt
With the impact of roundhouse kicks from black belts
That attack, the mic-fones like cyclones or typhoon
I represent from midnight to high noon
I don't waste ink, nigga I think
I drop megaton bombs more faster than you blink
Cause rhyme thoughts travel at a tremendous speed
Clouds of smoke, of natural blends of weed
Only under one circumstance that's if I'm blunted
Turn that shit up, my clan in the front want it

I'm on a mission that niggas say is impossible
But when I swing my swords they all choppable
I be the body dropper, the heartbeat stopper
Child educator, plus head amputator
Cause niggas styles are old like Mark 5 sneakers
Lyrics are weak like clock radio speakers
Don't even stop in my station and attack
While your plan failed, get derailed like Amtrak
What the fuck for? Down by law, I make law
I be justice, I sentence that ass two to four
Round the clock, that state pen time check it
With the pens I be sticking but you can't stick to crime
Came through with the Wu, slid off on the DL
I'm low-key like seashells, I rock these bells
Now come aboard, it's Medina bound
Enter the chamber, and it's a whole different sound
It's a wide entrance, small exit like a funnel
So deep it's picked up on radios in tunnels
Niggas are fascinated how the shit begin
Get vaccinated, my logo is branded in your skin

The Rock Bottom song came across as "Wah wah, poor me. Look at my angst presented in kindergarten rhymes".

For me there was more meaning in Not Afraid because he was actually speaking to the audience. There was a connection there. It wasn't just 'his' song, it felt more like a "Times can be shit and we all gotta go through it, but you just gotta keep going." It's a much more positive message than "Oh god everything is shit, fuck the world."

>kindergarten rhymes

but again the rhyme schemes on Rock Bottom are so much better than the ones on Not Afraid.

Rock Bottom, while it may be "angsty", came from a place of genuine struggle, before Eminem was a filthy rich and beloved superstar. it's so much more real.

Also, I listened to some of this. The intro was corny, it really didn't need to be there. A weak beginning. There was a few decent flows here and there but it wasn't consistent and ultimately couldn't hold my attention long enough to finish it. During that entire intro sequence I was just thinking "God, when is this kid going to shut up and get to the song?" Not a good introduction.

sorry I goofed on that and just edited the post, I got Not Afraid mixed up with another song on the same album.

still, the other points still stand.

I mean Not Afraid, sure it's a song about struggle I guess, but it's a more vague struggle, a general struggle, whereas Rock Bottom makes very specific harsh criticisms and illustrates gritty details about serious experiences.

I don't even know what to say to this, the intro to that album is my favorite intro ever to a hip-hop album, but it's better when you listen to the full thing because its like it's setting up the context for a journey, basically. it's a very cold album, but also a fun one, it straddles that line between edgy and dark, but also playful and badass.

idk what to say about the rest, I think GZA's flow is outstanding, even if his lyrics don't quite match Nas.

>>42034392
Not Afraid is about taking a struggle, learning from it and using that experience to help others get through that struggle. It's presented from a position of experience and wisdom. Rock Bottom is a more frantic scrabble of trying to figure things out and it shows in the composition. It's much more messy and disorderly, like it's trying hard to be more than it is in a desperate attempt at finding meaning but continually failing to take hold of anything substantial.

>>42034393
It didn't really hold my attention. I mean to be honest I probably don't have similar enough experiences to these rappers to really connect with their stories, and I think that above all else is probably why we have different opinions of them. These rappers mostly sing of violence and abuse because that is what they experienced growing up. Emenem's songs are more about the struggle of feeling like an outcast, not having a place and making one for yourself, which is something I can relate to better than physically abusive parents/siblings/peers.

Not Afraid just sounds like the struggle rap equivalent of a bunch of empty platitudes, to me. Like yeah I guess it's a struggle but like I said it's vague, it feels impersonal by comparison, almost dishonest.

as far as relating to rappers go, you don't have to relate to them to enjoy their music, sometimes it's just about enjoying good rhymes or an engaging story or whatever.

I mean, GZA's album Liquid Swords is based on the movie Shogun Assassin for its overall themes, it's not meant to be entirely personal, it's like cheesy but not too cheesy fun, with some personal and conscious stuff woven in.

>>42034395
I feel that Not Afraid packs more into it's lyrics using the euphemisms than Rock Bottom does. For example, the rather crude lyrics:

"His gift is a curse, forget the Earth, he's got the urge to pull his dick from the dirt
And fuck the whole universe."


Might come across to most as just throw away shock value, but there is deeper meaning here. What I get out of this line is that he's learned that there is more to the world than just the problems in front of him, and he learns to get the strength to confront the bigger more important issues in his life (the universe) than the petty ones that have been consuming him in the past (the earth). It's about learning that everyone has problems but there is a bigger picture, and sometimes you have to look past the small problems and focus on a bigger goal.

I think if you look at what he says from a broader perspective, you can find that Not Afraid is a much fuller and richer experience than Rock Bottom, because it's much more well constructed.

...I think you are seriously over-analyzing that lyric. It's just corny. it sounds roughly like something a high-schooler would put as a senior quote or something. it's not very imaginative. and it's not really saying anything profound, either.

I think it's a very profound lyric and probably one of my more favorite ones from the song.

You see, it's a personal thing too. It's a very private and vulnerable subject (the dick and fucking in general) which to me, gives it a bit of strength, because it basically emphasizes putting the most weak and vulnerable part of yourself at the forefront, to become an overall stronger person.

I'm a huge psychology buff so things like this intrigue me, because often times the shock value of someone talking about something crude, such as shoving their dick in something, will cause most people to turn away and not give it as much thought as they would something less crude and raw. I feel Emenem excels at taking shock value and packing a lot of meaning into it instead of just shock value for the sake of shock value.

okay, so like...what the fuck is up with lil xan? like...fantano has it right that he just sounds like a creaky fucking door, but...do people want to hear some half-dead xanax zombie junkie-whine over some decently moody beats?

i only mention him because he popped up on a spotify playlist and...i don't mean to sound like an old head here...but what the fuck? like...i even sorta like lil pump because at least he...has some energy. xan just...well junkie-whines in your ear for about 2 or so minutes and fucks off.
https://youtube.com/watch?v=EbfK7dei7ec
this is his best work and...god it's lifeless apart from the beats and the vibe.
this is...obviously trash but so is like...every track on total xanarchy:

yg's comment about "fake niggas" is probably sideways meant for lil xan considering how...seriously he takes himself.

I unironically think Total Xanarchy is a 6/10 album. It's not NEARLY as terrible as Fantano makes it out to be and I would rather listen to him than Lil Pump. I wrote a review of it for RYM but to summarize it's primarily because he has much more interesting production than his contemporaries. I mean listen to the beat on a song like Twist, it's actually pretty wild. Then you have the fun Diplo-produced tracks and, well, Diplo is renowned for a reason, he helped produce a lot of the best MIA albums and also helped Skrillex produce some of his best stuff too iirc.

He's also cute as fuck and would make a good trap if he lost the tattoos and fixed his teeth.

okay, that's...an opinion to have. personally this is some...4-3/10 shit. the beats are literally the only good thing, xan's...it just sounds like the same addict whine i hear on the bus every day. like...his flows are way too weak for me to even give this thing a 5, he's just so...passionless on every track. i dunno, this album feels like languishing in a puddle of lean and xanax, and that's not what i go for in music.

also...ehhh, he's okay at best. knowing he's a xanax zombie sorta kills any attraction i might have.

really i think my biggest issue with the whole album is that it's so fueled by his addiction in a way that's really uninteresting. if i wanted to hear about drug addict problems, i'd just listen to danny brown. xan's beats just don't save him from being devastatingly boring. yes that's rich coming from a post-rock fan, but...even earl sweatshirt manages to sound like he cares on some of his tracks and he sounds stoned out of his mind/depressed as fuck sometimes. and earl can make an interesting flow that isn't from the "trap flows and you" handbook.

i'll give you that he's better than many of his peers in the mumble/soundcloud/flavor-of-the-month rap scene.

I'm not trying to say that Lil Xan is some great artist, and I get why people hate him, but like, I'd rather listen to him drone-whine over decent beats than hear Lil Pump shout at me over something out of a "How To Make A Trap Beat" video, ya know?

although I doubt I'll ever listen to Total Xanarchy in full again.

the new Autechre sessions are SO good and I can't wait for the next two

I think the opening and closing tracks of session 2 are a good summary of the broad range of styles that they are exploring.

elyc9 7hres is a continuation of a 20+minute behemoth off of their previous album elseq, that continues the ultra-complex and fast-paced glitchy compositions, with their unique metallic, cold, almost alien sonic aesthetic surrounding it.

then there's turbile epic casual, stpl idle which is a 21min30sec track where about 3/4ths of it is essentially a very eerie drone/ambient soundscape with lots of interesting rhythms and textures, that suddenly transforms into a distorted and bassy cacophony of what sounds like some kind of giant electric whip cracking down and eviscerating buildings or something.

I've never heard stuff like this, I really think Autechre have developed a distinct sound and general approach to electronic composition, and now they are continuing to be absurdly prolific both in the studio and with live recordings.

unfortunately the music from their newer albums is not on youtube.

Chewy *Element Of Fortitude*!!Twilight SparkleCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42035482

also, library music has gotta be one of the coolest fucking genres ever.

it's basically music that literal libraries but also other kinds of public stores would hire obscure musicians to compose background music for.

the musicians they hired were often given much more artistic freedom than regular pop artists so it resulted in a lot of really interesting music, much of which has been compiled onto albums available today.

here is a particularly interesting example I found through RYM: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6nh4ops3wI an album from 1969 that basically combines classical serialism with pop/lounge music with a wide variety of instruments, only 30mins long and a very interesting listen.

excited to dig much deeper into this genre.

oh and one more thing, I finally listened to Tommy Wright III who is considered an absolutely essential Memphis rap artist, and I gotta say, he lives up to the hype.

he just sounds truly hardcore yet somehow chill at the same time, and also his production manages to be so creepy despite being extremely minimal. the skits are fun too, when you consider the album is over an hour long, nothing feels like it doesn't belong, honestly. it's more lyrically engaging than a lot of Memphis rap, too.

this song makes me come close to tearing up sometimes

I've been out walking
I don't do too much talking these days
These days
These days I seem to think a lot
About the things that I forgot to do
And all the times I had to chance to

I've stopped my rambling
I don't do too much gambling these days
These days
These days I seem to think about
How all these changes came about my ways
And I wonder if I'd see another highway

I had a lover
I don't think I'd risk another these days
These days
And if I seem to be afraid
To live the life that I have made in song
It's just that I've been losing so long

I've stopped my dreaming
I won't do too much scheming these days
These days
These days I sit on cornerstones
And count the time in quarter tones to 10
Please don't confront me with my failures
I had not forgotten them

It's eerie how this song is just as relevant now as it was then.
There's something happening here
But what it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking' their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

It's time we stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
Step out of line, the men come and take you away

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

We better stop
Hey, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

We better stop
Now, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

We better stop
Children, what's that sound?
Everybody look - what's going down?

everyone is hating on the new Princess Nokia
but I absolutely love it
the album isn't incredible
but it's totally solid and has some tracks that are genuinely great like Look Up Kid (which unfortunately isn't on youtube)
people are bashing her for not doing the styles she's influenced by justice but are we really gonna pretend these songs are so much worse than Foo Fighters or Green Day or whatever the fuck she's trying to revive?
I don't think there's anything wrong with appreciating a "shallow" pop song if it has genuine feels and nice production
the blending of trap beats and alt-emo stuff goes over really well imo

it's very cool music. it sounds basically like what the artwork looks like. like you're in space or something.

it's really cool to hear on speakers for the first time instead of headphones, too. especially since my record player can play at different speeds. I'm listening now but I might listen again right after and switch the speed to see what it sounds like. although I wonder if that would damage the record if it's not meant to be played like that...

EDIT: LMAO I just realized that my whole first listen was at the wrong speed

I've known myself to accidentally play 33 1⁄3s at 45 and they've been okay.
I can imagine the records will wear out a bit more quickly if the needle has to move back and forth 35% more left and right.
Can be especially true if the speedup reproduces frequencies above the human hearing range from vinyl to needle.

I played it too fast the first time (so I guess 45rpm, most likely? the setting button on my record player isn't very clear, it's old) and it sounded MUCH better when I slowed it down for the second listen.

Frost*'s album Milliontown

This thing is literally one of the greatest examples of progressive rock I have heard in a long time. Man, the Europeans have this genre down pat. Between the English and the Swedes, the twin genres of prog rock and prog metal are basically owned by the Euros.

There are some great prog bands out of Europe, some of whom have been among the greatest musicians ever, but there are far fewer when you leave Europe. Spock's Beard, Echolyn, Echoes, Glass Hammer, et cetera are all fantastic, and Rush (RIP) belongs in the shortlist of the greatest bands to exist; but there is a consistency to the Euro prog groups that the New World groups lack.

I found this site called Free Music Archive and they have a lot of interesting stuff that I'm pretty sure is legal, like for example this:

>this album is a selection of numerous old open reel tapes found in different broken recorders or were given away. no editing process was performed on them. i just put them together in the context of an album.

relistening to Biggie's Ready To Die again.
it keeps growing more and more on me. when I first heard it, it was like a 6/10, then a couple more listens it was a 7.5, and now it's like an 8.5-9
it's an incredible album but it's held back from being a true masterpiece by some truly obnoxious skits that completely fuck up the flow/vibe of the album.
also, while Biggie certainly is a grade A lyricist, there are several really fucking bad lines that I don't understand how they made it onto the album.

>Niggas get all up in you like a wedgie

>I got technique flowin' out my butt cheeks
>I got the meanest, cleanest, penis
>You look so good, I'd suck on your daddy's dick
>the opening skit
>the phone call skit with all the bitches
>the sex skit and also the blowjob skit

the red dot skit is actually pretty good though.

some songs just really feel out of place though--like how are you gonna have a song about loving your girl and then a song about never trusting any women on the same album? although to be fair plenty of rappers have done this...

so i forgot how much i love tori amos, but man this song is...sorta ahead of it's time. also it's...it's really goth-y while not being full darkwave or any other goth genre, but the cavernously blown-out kick-drum, the minor synth harp sounds, the melodramatic vocals all scream goth to me. the eerie sounds all over this song sorta re-enforce that vibe too, and the lyrics too.

also it might just be hella 90s and i'm trying to project stuff onto it.

@TOYBOX

I want you to listen to this song at least through the first chorus: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIRLKNN_Zz4

I know you won't like the whole thing because it ends with a rap verse but most of the first half is singing and the chorus is just beautiful imo and I think it's poppy enough that you might appreciate it.

it's from Janelle Monae's new album called Dirty Computer and honestly right now I am kind of mixed on it, there are some absolutely incredible songs but there are also a few that are meh and just a couple that are really terrible.

it's unfortunately a pretty significant step down from her previous work. well, at least from ArchAndroid, because Electric Lady wan't really that incredible, but man ArchAndroid is literally a 10/10 album to me. it's fucking amazing and it's really a shame that now, eight years later, she has gone in a much more accessible/poppy direction.

Music: 9/10
Lyrics: 5/10

Pros: Very nice composition overall. Light and airy which is very pleasant. Good use of vocals in addition to the melody.

Cons: Too much focus on racial things. If the message had been more universal and not specifically aimed at a specific group of people, it would have been more enjoyable. Felt myself cringing every time she said the word 'black'.

Overall, 6/10.

I actually kind of agree about the lyrics, except not because they're about blackness but more because they don't express that message in a particularly poetic way like other artists do.

What it comes down to is, social/political messages generally don't work in the context of a pop song. It's just not a good vehicle for a subject that is supposed to have a lot more depth than what it allows.

There are plenty of artists who have made fantastic lyrical songs about being black and black issues, I don't think there is anything wrong with wanting to do that, but what I see to be the quality of Janelle Monae's music is the musicality rather than the message. She has a beautiful voice and very good songwriting, great sense of melody and powerful hooks.

try this one next: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgSpeV-bklk&list=PLVrBAaxUuHtyXg3AOpLW7jMqgrOWdZdBG&index=2&t=0s

I swear I have heard the opening lyrics to this song somewhere before but I can't remember where.

As for the rest it, pretty good/10. To be honest, I see a lot of influences from Ke$ha in her music, which isn't a bad thing because in my opinion Ke$ha is a musical genius. That being said, I don't think she is quite on par just yet, because her songs are smooth but don't have the rush that Ke$ha pulls off. Her lyrics are also a bit more sloppy than Ke$ha.

I wouldn't mind listening to it more than once though, so that's something.

7/10.

what about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmH3ejHT6oo&index=3&list=PLVrBAaxUuHtyXg3AOpLW7jMqgrOWdZdBG&t=0s

Among the people she collaborated with on the album are Prince (before he died, of course), Brian Wilson, Pharrell Williams and various others, so...Kesha was probably not very high up in her influences, I would say. I mean Kesha isn't really the most original artist...

Ke$ha may not be the most original artist, but that's okay. She's been able to take established pop and ramp it up to 11.

There is just as much merit in becoming an expert of an established craft as there is creating something new.

As for the song you posted, this reminds me of Janet Jackson. Like, if you hadn't told me who made this song and I had to guess and artist, my first pick would be Janet Jackson. It sounds almost identical to something she would do.
