Hey, so I looked around and stuff. And fuck me, I couldn't find a music thread.

I goddamn love music.

I love all good music. And if you're a human who breathes, you do too.

So let's get our jam on, and do that. I'll start.

Right now, I'm really rockin' on these guys:



Here's what I'd like to avoid: Any kind of stupid "oh that sucks". If you don't like it, that's cool. You don't gotta tell me.
Instead, why don't you say: "That's cool, this is what I enjoy."

That way we can get around all the bullshit and just enjoy music. We could also talk about music. Like, something interesting you heard on the radio (since this is where Pop Music comes from). Or maybe a band did something cool (this happens occasionally). Or maybe you went and saw a rad show (I do this sometimes).

If you want to come in here and bag on someone, or a band, or a style of music... You can do that, but please don't. It just makes you a goose and a mean goose is scary as fuck. Ever seen one of those fuckers? All honkin' and waving their wings around for attention. Shit be scary.

Anyway, music.

What are you listening to?

Oh, I'm also not sure on having a thread with just a ton of embedded YouTube links, so if someone has some good guidelines, um... Post them. Otherwise, I'm sayin' like... 1 per post? Just, like, pick a song you really like and represents something, and link that. Don't link every song from the album you just bought. Let's be reasonable adults on the internet.

    Basically, I wanted to say "modonomy".

    Been listening to a metric fucktonne of dubstep recently, and also been looking through a lot of acoustic guitar music. Been trying to find stuff similar to a song I posted over in the videogame music thread but still no luck.

    Chvrches would be synthpop, I think. I'm not a huge fan of Chvrches myself, I prefer my synthpop with more of an Italo-disco vibe, stuff like Desire. I do have The Bones of What You Believe though, I should check it out again.

    Hmmmmm. Music.

    I have a weird relationship with music, it's really hard for me to listen to it, and I have a hard time grasping lyrics sometimes. I don't listen to music often, but when I do, it's usually bands that I grew up with.

    I feel most comfortable with industrial electronica, Daft Punk is my dreams, but when I get home I'll post a few of the other things I love and see if I can get recommendations!

    Ya'll are great people.

    I've been really curious how pervasive the "electronic" sound is, and clearly... It's everywhere.

    I work for a couple radio stations, and one of them has been pushing their music toward a more electronic/synthpop (thanks for that) sound. The other is trying to dig its claws in the old metal sounds. They claim to be "rock", but they're pretty metal.

    Cause, like, this is rock to me:



    And they thought that was "pop'y" when I showed it to the guy who puts music on the radio.

    So, like, Broken Bells is becoming a pretty big thing.



    It's the guy from the Shins and Danger Mouse making good music. Do they fall into that Synthpop category? I see a lot of jargon thrown around a lot, and honestly most of it sounds dumb and is stupid... That said, I want to know it. Because it's not going anywhere and I'd be a fool to not learn it.

    @RubberAC, how the fuck have I not known about these. Punk (not that dumb shit they call punk now) is my absolute favorite music.

    Shakey Graves, that was just amazing. That took such an amazing amount of coordination...

    If you're referring to AJJ, there's a bunch of good folk-punk out there, Ramshackle Glory are another good folk-punk band. They also follow the punk aesthetic super well in other ways, if you want any of their merch, but don't have the cash to afford it, you can send 'em a letter saying what you want and giving them whatever you can/nothing at all, if you can't, and they'll send it to you. Also, Andrew Jackson Jihad are really well grounded, I've emailed them twice and got good replies each time. Folk-punk is a good scene.



  • Anon the FelonAnon the Felon In bat country.Registered User regular
    Yeah, I enjoy Ramshackle Glory. They're a little... Off, for me to really get into. AJJ is a good balance though.

    I've got my roots in the older Against Me!, This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb, Defiance Ohio, and such. I've had terrible luck finding anything with a similarly emotional, yet intelligible, sound.

  • RubberACRubberAC Sidney BC!Registered User regular
    I find AJJ to be basically the only Folkpunk band I listen to that is actually palatable to people who don't enjoy homeless bohemians yelling into microphones about heroin
    He's much closer to the Folk side of the spectrum, and that album is one of my favourite things ever.
    Shakey Graves is an amazing musician and makes me awful weak in the knees to watch

    So back in the day I played a hell of a lot of Deus Ex(because it was amazing,) and when the sequel Invisible War was announced, a little-known band called Kidneythieves was attached to the project. Their music absolutely blew my mind, and the lead singer, Free Dominguez, even voiced a bitchy pop star in the game. They've got three absolutely killer albums which have their entirety on youtube, Tricksterreprocess, Zerospace, and Tryptofanatic, as well as a couple of EPs and in general holy shit their music is exactly what I want all the time.

    And I also loved the soundtrack for the Mortal Kombat movie, and that's how I found KMFDM, which was the soundtrack for a shitload of Unreal Tournament 2004 and Guild Wars.

    It really wasn't long after that that I discovered that KMFDM did a remix of a Kidneythieves song, and if I ever had to pick my three favorite bands, it's KT, KMFDM, and Daft Punk.

    Also of note in my musical grooving is Sohodolls, which I was turned onto by an ex-girlfriend and never turned it off. This shit is rad.


    And that's a good sampling of my musical tastes, I think. To finish this off, this is what I listen to when I need to blow off steam:

  • LabelLabel Registered User regular
    you ever have one of those songs where you can't remember the name or the band?

    i "think" there was a Y and a T in the name, and a mr. as in, y*** & mr t***, or something. it might have been something like *y*** and mr t***. i don't remember and it's been years. it was electronic


    I was rockin this pretty hard the last couple days, personally.

    So I just "discovered" Prince recently

    I mean I knew a few of his singles from radio, stuff like 1999, Little Red Corvette, Purple Rain, a couple others

    But I just randomly decided to listen to a full Prince album on Spotify recently and then I ended up listening to a bunch of his stuff

    I would throw up some Prince right now but apparently they're super-notorious about removing all of his music from YouTube as soon as it goes up, so what are you gonna do?

    Here, have some Lucinda Williams instead



    (I've been listening to a lot of '90s music recently, my friends and I are trying to come up with our own personal lists of the best '90s stuff)

    Washed Out's new album was, I thought, a pretty serious leap forward. Maybe the whole bird and nature sounds conceit was a little hokey but the music was legit.

    Prince is fuckin awesome dude. Guy is crazy talented. The thing about Prince is that he's a super amazing guitarist and all around musician but you never really hear people talk about it.

    I ended up buying Purple Rain on Blu-ray which I also really enjoyed

    Seriously, Purple Rain, Sign o' the Times and 1999 are straight-up amazing front to end

    "Let's Go Crazy" is such a kick-ass high energy song that pulls you into the rest of that album, goddamn
