Stockhausen's Licht (in case you don't know, that's seven operas to the mere four of Wagner's Ring)
(OK, I admit it - not all in one sitting)
Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: pwhodges on 27 Sep 2008, 16:35
And in reality, I don't have any of Licht.  I have a documentary on the Helicopter Quartet, which forms part of one of the operas; yes, it's as the name suggests - the four members of the string quartet play in four helicopters flying above the concert hall, and their sound (and that of the 'copters) is radioed down to speakers.  Sometimes I think that Stockhausen's life was devoted to trying to outdo Cage in breaking down preconceptions...

Seefeel - Time to Find Me [AFX Fast Mix]

This is a great track.  I need to get Quique at some point; the Polyfusia compilation is wonderful (even if my copy accrues scratches at a greater rate than the rest of my collection).

Iggy Pop- Nightclubbing (from The Idiot)

Also: great.

Now playing for me: Cranes - EP Collection.  I really like this because it showcases the early work when their dark dream-pop (nightmare-pop?) still had a lot of Foetus and Swans influences.  Not that I mind their jangly mid-period or their current ambient/ethereal incarnation, either.

I found a used copy of Tortoise's 'A Lasarus Taxon' at my local independent record store for about $25.
It's a 3 CD+1 DVD Box Set released in 2006.
Pitchfork gave it a 9.2
http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/record_review/37797-a-lazarus-taxon

I saw it, unaware it existed and assumed that it was probably a steal, and I was right...
It's not selling for any less than $50 at Amazon used, I've seen it priced at over $100.


so that's what I'm listening to right now. It's REALLY good.

Specifically the track 'Blackbird' at the moment, but I'm making my way through.

These Arms Are Snakes – Oxeneers or The Lion Sleeps When Its Antelope Go Home

"no virginia" by the dresden dolls

i must've heard one of their songs a long while back, because i had the idea in my head that they were a bit crap, but after randomly seeing one of their videos yesterday, and subsequently checking out a load more on youtube, i realised i like them!  tbh though, this album's a bit hit and miss, but ive since realised it's a rarities thing.  and it was only a few quid.  i'll be checking out "yes virginia" soon though.

Espers, 'Black is the Color'

It's from their cover EP, The Weed Tree, which is the only thing of theirs I've heard due to laziness in d/l'ing and broke-ness and forgetfulness at the record stores. 

Really good stuff, tho, a folk sound with strange drop-ins of electronic insanity.  The first song of theirs I heard was a cover (off this EP) of 'Flaming Telepaths', which has a synth dying loudly with violence for a five minute coda.  After that coda, I rushed from the bookstore across the street to Static Age to get the last copy in the store.

oh fuck off!!!  how is it that people put these psuedo-intellectual, so called "experimental" genres on some sort of pedestal?  you wouldn't tell someone who didn't like, say, the backstreet boys, that the reason was that they "don't get it" would you?!  and if i played a napalm death album to someone who didn't like it, most people would laugh in my face if i told them "oh, it's just that you don't GET napalm death."  so whats so fucking different about Stockhausen, that i can't be allowed to have a negative opinion of his music without being told that i "don't get it."

and judging albums by how many people download it, is like saying all best-selling records are brilliant.  kid rock sells millions of records, is he a musical genius?

I have to agree. In my country there is some serious mind-fucking going on, as the popularity of a certain "genre" of (stretching the term almost impossibly) music is rising - the turbo folk. You are lucky you have none of that shite over there (wherever you are). The basic argument of retards (the army of) listening to that shite is "How come everyone is listening to it if it's crap? Huh, wiseass?" and "You just don't get it."
I'm not saying that Stockhausen is crap, or good, in fact - never heard of it. Just wanted to say that I agree with the "numbers mean shit" statement.
Thank you,

Cool your jets, man, it's not that big a deal.  This is just a thread where people post what they're listening to and not commenting on it.  I think Paul's just saying that perhaps more people than you might think have an understanding of the music in which they like it.  This doesn't mean that it's objectively good, it just means you haven't found a situation or frame of mind in which you can enjoy it, so you've chosen not to.

Most of the time I don't mind what my co-worker plays, but god damn I hate Katy Perry.

Also, Spoon, dude.  You might not agree with Paul, but at least hear him out.  Many of my friends can't get into the music I like (namely: post rock) because they don't get it.  All that really means is the tastes they've acquired don't allow them to appreciate what is going on in other kinds of music, or they are just used to a certain kind of delivery of aesthetic in what they listen to.  For example: I have a close friend who listens pretty exclusively to pop punk and hardcore (Rise Against, Black Flag, Anti-Flag, the Dead Kennedys, etc., and I'm going to lump Against Me! in there), and he just doesn't get what Explosions in the Sky or bands like that are trying to accomplish because he's used to aggressive, upbeat music that uses lyrics to convey a feeling or message instead of trying to draw from the subconscious using abstract arrangements.

Uh, yeah.  I think needlessly went into detail about something everyone knows already.  Yeeaaahh...

fair enough, i see what you guys are getting at, but it's entirely possible to completely "get" a certain piece of music, and STILL vehemently dislike it.  now i don't for one minute claim to have any sort of all-encompassing knowledge on their works, but i've heard several pieces of music by Stockhausen and similarly, John Cage, and i've read about their approaches to composition and the theories and ideas they were using.  i find it, for the most part, fascinating.  i understand what they were trying to do.  however, for me, music is about enjoyment of the sound, and emotional impact.  this is why i don't like Stockhausen's music (or at least what i've heard so far) - taken purely as a piece of music, i do not find it enjoyable to listen to, and the fact that it's the result of an experiment makes it seem a little clinical and thus not very emotionally affecting.  i'd happily sit and watch a documentary on how Stockhausen or similar experimental composers composed their pieces, but the music alone is just unpleasant.

that said, i apologise for being a little aggressive back there, i just felt that what pwhodges said came off as kinda pretentious.  as i mentioned though, i haven't heard ALL of Stockhausen's stuff, and when i've got the time to spare to properly give it a listen, i'll download those albums from the mediaf!re thread.


and just so i'm not COMPLETELY off-topic here....  "The Fall of Math" by 65daysofstatic is currently recieving listenage.
Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: De_El on 03 Dec 2008, 10:53
Spoon,
Not all music is as shallow as pretty sounds. Sometime music is art, and makes statements beyond the literal.  This is not to say that popular music can't do the same thing, but experimental and avant-garde musics sometimes sacrifice the pretty sound aspect of what people enjoy about music for a more conceptual value.  You don't think of dance music and ambient music as having the same cultural function, do you?  The avant-garde requires a different sort of thinking.  No one could actually listen to all of John Cage's As Slow as Possible; no one lives long enough, and I doubt it would really be all that interesting to do so, but by its very existence it causes people to think about the nature of art and music.

Also: "Lost in the Supermarket" - The Clash

Edit: Okay so you know what the deal is and I don't need to be all blunt about it.  At least you understand the fundamental differences, and realize that the way you think about music and its function is what excludes Stockhausen from the music you enjoy. (Do I sound like a dick? I am really not trying to be but I have a tendency to be terse).
Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: imapiratearg on 03 Dec 2008, 10:56
Stuffs.

I understand completely.  I once heard a performance of a John Cage piece, and if it weren't as fascinating in terms of composition and method, I'd have hated it.  I certainly would not listen to it on a regular basis, however.  It would probably drive me insane.

OK, I didn't see that in your first reaction - sorry.  Your lecturer plays you stuff - what's your course?

Quote
however, for me, music is about enjoyment of the sound, and emotional impact.  this is why i don't like Stockhausen's music (or at least what i've heard so far) - taken purely as a piece of music, i do not find it enjoyable to listen to,

To my mind his music gets less pleasant to listen to, and also less interesting, through his career.  Indeed, the piece of his I most enjoy  listening to is the first well-known piece, Gesang der Juenglinge,  which I uploaded a couple of weeks ago.  I was also privileged, while working at the BBC, to record the rehearsals and performance of one of his orchestral improvisatory pieces (with him in charge, and I got to meet him); it was fascinating, but the concert/broadcast was a flop.  One of the rehearsals was such that I would love to hear it again, but no way will it have survived.

Quote
the result of an experiment makes it seem a little clinical and thus not very emotionally affecting.

All   worthwhile music in any period is an experiment - if the composer/performer is not pushing the boundaries somewhere  then the result will ultimately be bland and uninteresting.

i just felt that what pwhodges said came off as kinda pretentious.

You're not the first to say that to me, and probably not the last; but I like to share my knowledge and experience.  I am often rather terse as well, and sometimes that comes over as daunting.  And hey, for pretentious, how about that I have actually performed Cage's 4'33" in concert...

All   worthwhile music in any period is an experiment - if the composer/performer is not pushing the boundaries somewhere  then the result will ultimately be bland and uninteresting.

i'd mostly agree with this (although i do own a few awesome albums, from various genres, where there's nothing new being done per se, the band/artist is just taking something that's been done, but doing it REALLY well), but a band who intend to push boundaries aren't necessarily viewing their album as an experiment.  there's nothing wrong with experimenting, but not at the expense of having any emotional impact.

sure, experimental music can make you think.  but all i think when i listen to, for example John Cage's Music of Changes, is "he's experimented with a new method of composition, using chance.  it's obviously not a great method, as the end result is horrible."  maybe it's just that i look for different things to get out the listening experience, because to me, it's those hair-on-the-back-of-your-neck-standing-on-end, shiver-down-your-spine awesome moments, combined with the emotional impact of the music that keeps me coming back, and i can't get that out of most experimental music.

i do Music Tech, btw.  our lecturer is a fan of experimental music, and so he tends to slant the few composition modules we do towards experimental areas.

If it's too quiet I get something like tinnitus and my ears will start ringing more often.  Or my ears will fill in the silence with this really quiet hiss-type noise that sounds like it's got a tremolo effect running on it all the time.  Imagine some cassette tape hiss, and that's pretty much what I hear when it's totally silent, but very quiet and undulating.

Not-music is nice, though.  I really like the sound of the wind in trees.

Currently listening: "The Falls" by Hudson Bell.  Seriously, more people should listen to this band.  I've contemplated upping the album I bought of his, but I kind of respect him a lot since he seems like a nice dude.  He emailed me personally to tell me my CD was on its way.  His music is very fuzzy, contemplative rock music with huge, swirling guitars.  He gets compared to Neil Young quite frequently, since most aspects of his music are very similar to Young's.

tl;dr - Check him out.  I'm pretty sure you can stream all of When the Sun Is the Moon on his Last.fm page.

Confession time: I've never liked Husker Du. This isn't to be contrary. I'm just saying that sometimes I wonder if something is wrong with me and that I will never find love.

try listening to Sugar, Bob Mould's post-HD project.  and then get the latter HD stuff and move backwards.  took me a while to get into them too.

Eh, don't worry about it.  They had their moments but are one of those bands people talk about more than listen to.

All of my records, alphabetically by album title unless I download or buy something that came before where I am in the alphabet at the moment.  I'm 100% serious, I kind of went nuts for about a year with the downloading and realized that I hadn't actually heard a fairly substantial chunk of the music in my library and I figured this method would be the most likely to allow me to hear it all eventually.  I thought about going alphabetically by artist but didn't want to get sick of any artist that I like (I'm particularly thinking of Guided by Voices here who are one of my favorite bands but I would imagine after listening to them for several days straight they might get a little old).  Anyway, I'm currently almost done listening to From the Muddy Banks of the Wishkah by Nirvana, after this it's Lee "Scratch" Perry - From the Secret Laboratory, Tommy Guerrero - From the Soil to the Soul and a 7" compilation called Fuck You Spaceman.

I have the vinyl version of their first box set, the one that includes all of their pre-Scat records material, the vinyl version is one disc longer than the cd version because it also includes Propeller.  I've listened to the box all the way through a couple of times and even just that is a challenge I can't really imagine going the distance and listening to all of it in one go.

Do You Fear What I Fear? by Jennifer Taub and Josh Thoemke, from the album Khar uploaded for Christmas last year, A Very Scary Solstice.

Basically it is a Christmas album with traditional Christmas songs, except the lyrics have been changed to revolve around the H. P. Lovecraft universe: Cthulu, Yog-Sothoth and Shoggoths are all recurring themes.

It is the best thing ever. I think the link might be dead, if people want me to I can re-up it.

Love - Forever Changes

Best 60s album ever?  For my money, yes.  It's psychedelic and a bit folky and thematically dark and sorrowful.  None of this hippie-dippy irrational optimism.  Did I mention the music rocks?

The first thing I thought when listening to this album was "I bet David Tibet would like this."  Turns out he's singled it out as one of the reasons he decided to abandon the tape-loops and take Current 93 in the song-based folk direction.

i ranked mr. beast and young team equally because mr. beast is probably the best one musically, whilst young team was the first mogwai i heard (only this year though! the reissue...) and has a strange kinda atmosphere to it that their other albums don't.  so the two are about equal to me.

(It was just a Venture Bros. reference, dude.)

And even so, where did you get such information that Station to Station is meant to be cheesy? Bowie admits that it's influenced by funk and soul and German electro and whatnot, but there's nothing to indicate it's "meant to be cheesy." It's also one of his very best albums. I'd say only behind Low. And just ahead of Ziggy.

I'm not putting it down,the track "Station to Station" itself might my favourite thing Bowie's ever done,but I just read it recently and I find I appreciate the album more approaching it from that direction.

Supposedly Bowie himself put forth some thoughts about the Thin White Duke character he was singing the album as being "an emotionless aryan superman putting forth over the top emotion,ice masquerading as fire".

But then again he's said he doesn't remember recording the album so that's probably bull *shrug*

"once like a spark" by jetplane landing.

great album, a nice post-hardcore mix of helmet, jimmy eat world, and quicksand with some RATM-y riffs.  although i never understood why "there is no real courage unless there is real danger" was put at the end of the album, as it'd make a superb opener.

"lazarus bird" by Burst. 

it's gotten to the point in my local HMV that there's so little choice in the metal and rock/pop sections that i went round the whole store and found only two albums i was vaguely interested in hearing (the other being bon iver's "for emma forever ago").  however, being in a more aggressive than dreamy mood, i used my £10 voucher to get the burst album.  having not heard a single song off it.  but being a fan of three of the "recommended" bands on the yellow obi-strip thing (isis, mastodon, the ocean).

and it's fucking awesome.

I guess it sounds like it was made around the same time as California (even though it was for a film made this year). The soundtrack itself is for a noir crime film, so it fits perfectly.

that whole album is the absolute tits!  i bought it out of sheer curiosity a couple of weeks ago and have barely stopped listening to it!  hoping "mission: control!" is as good, because that should be with me soon if the postmen don't strike again...

however, at this exact moment, i'm listening to "The Distant and Mechanised Glow of Eastern European Dance Parties" remix EP by 65daysofstatic, which i may well post in the mediaf!re thread once mediaf!re has finished it's maintenance thing...

Steven Wilson- Insurgentes.

First listen, Dovey says "meh." Willing to reserve final judgement until I've actually had a proper listen to it. (it's background music at work at the moment).

Before that, The Gaslight Anthem's "The '59 Sound."

Albums like this and "Stay Positive" by The Hold Steady are what make me have faith that rock is not dead, not dying. Somebody needs to tie that skinny fuck from The Killers to a chair and make him listen to those two albums non-stop until he admits that the does not know jack shit about making anthemic rock and roll.

Songs about a couple of pals that go hiking in France, and one of the friends(Jed) falls down a wet cliff and dies. His friend finds him but gets lost and doesnt know what to do. The song progresses until near the end he eats part of jed "Maybe I should eat my friend". But then the friend wakes up. Shits crazy sick and awesome.

dresden dolls are pretty awesome!  what's the first album like, in relation to the rest, as that's the only one i'm missing?


oh, and on topic n' all that, i'm listening to 36 Crazyfists cover Far's "Mother Mary."  I'm beginning to think they've bettered the original actually!

The first Dresden Dolls album is pretty solid. I enjoy listening to it, even though it is a little rougher and more unfinished-sounding than their next two albums.
Definitely give it a listen, as it's a real gem compared to other artist/band debuts.

"Boy With a Coin" Iron & Wine

Sam Beam is so fucking fantastic that it makes my ears weep with joy.

It is impossible to describe how much i love that song.

At the moment i'm listening to The Gay Blades - Ghosts that was posted in the Med!afire thread. So far so brilliant.

The Gay Blades are kind of key.  I'm seeing them with Craig Owens from Chiodos and VersaEmerge in a few weeks.  Should be fun.  Nice bar a few minutes from my house too.

Listening to Taylor Swift now.  But today it's been all Blink182.  I'm just so stoked for this reunion.

So, funny story.
I was listening to "Bulletproof Weeks" by Matt Nathanson in my room while also doing homework and such. My roommate walks in, sighs dramatically and says "I've heard this song, like, a million times. If I hear it again, I'll kill someone!"
I put on my headphones and continue listening to the song/doing homework. She goes to her computer, turns on some kind of overdone hiphop/rap music, and leaves the speakers on loud enough for me to hear.
See, it's funny because roommates suck!

Back when I lived in the dorms I had a roommate who played Cam'Ron - Hey Ma over and over and over again when the song was old enough that it had just stopped playing on all of the radio station's rotations.

Back on topic, sometimes I just have to listen to Boris - Pink repeatedly....and this is one of those occasions

Two Hunters, by Wolves in the Throne Room.  It's weird...it's black metal, which I by and large can't bear to hear, and yet I find myself listening to it over and over and over.

They were from the DC Post-Hardcore scene along with Fugazi, but suffice it to say it's a different flavor thereof. The guitar riffs are pretty angular, the quiet parts contemplative and ominous, their bassist became a member of the fucking awesome June of 44, etc etc etc. Give it a listen, it's pretty good.

My roommate and a good portion of my family are very conservative. Whenever I switch on NPR in the car or at the barn, everyone gags and changes it. =\
So, yes, for me it is rather rare.

There's nothing wrong with linking your last.fm account, and I'd even encourage it! But having a chart with the actual songs pop up in every thread you post in is a bit visually obnoxious, and it doesn't really serve much of a purpose outside of the music forum anyways. The widget is basically an image, after all, and we have rules about that for a reason. Sorry! Link it instead. If people are interested, they'll click, and if they're not they won't.

Proposition: Instead of just posting songs we are listening to, lets actually talk about them!

Anyway, my god I am listening to Off Minor right now and I never realized how good the song Cadaveric is. I was finally getting to downloading some more of their stuff (I only have one split with them on it) and then I went to their myspace page to listen to some songs by them. My god is Cadaveric a good song, I can't stop listening to it. It's not very in your face or aggressive, but you can just feel the discontent in this song. It's like passive-aggressive punk rock (with jazz thrown in). Off Minor can write a hell of a song.

Rage Against The Machine - Kick Out The Jams

I prefer the Rage version to the original.

Also, I myself am listening to "I Know a Little" by Lynyrd Skynyrd (which looks so normal next to all these strange metal and indie bands).  The piano solo will kick your ass.

I actually listen to almost nothing that comes out nowadays, just things from 80's and before (weird since I wasn't even alive then).

So I am listening to the Sigur Ros discography for the first time.  I have listened to their newest, but that didn't have nearly as much of a post-rock bent as some of their older ones.  Takk is pretty amazing. 


It's definitely helped me get through the mountain of homework I have.  I'm 4 pages through a 5 page paper that I started 2 and a half hours ago.  Normally I do not get them done so fast.  Plus, it's practically summer outside, so all in all I think I've had a good day, and it almost feels like the flowers are blooming again.

Tarentel's "From Bone to Satellite." I've always loved this album but I haven't heard it in a while. I knew it was great but I think I forgot how awesome it is. Possibly the best post-rock album of all time? It's certainly in the running.

Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: Radical AC on 11 Mar 2009, 20:29
I think it might be the fact that the Fleet Foxes had such a solid debut album with the right sound for the right time.  And again, being Pitchfork's album of the year practically has the hipsters prostituting themselves to get on the bandwagon.  I'm not sure if they really are special yet.  Right now I still prefer Okkervil River and Mountain Goats to FF, but if they can maintain this same quality for successive albums I could really respect them.

They're practically a prog-rock band now.  Which is in no way a bad thing.  That's a cracking album, and apparently they're working on a new one now.

If you haven't already, check out "The Answer is Never" by Howards Alias.  they are (or were - split up now...) the UK's answer to Rx Bandits.

Sick, thanks! Downloading now. I'll PM you and let you know what I think of it.

Until then, I am listening to "Everything Means Nothing To Me" by Elliot Smith. It has always haunted me to listen to the music of a person whose death is considered to have been a suicide. That and accidental deaths. In the case of accidents, I wonder if their subconscious mind somehow knew it was coming. With suicides, I wonder if they were thinking about ending their own lives as they wrote every song. And with something so sad as this song, it's really hard for me to imagine any other way.

Or maybe I'm just overthinking it. Either way, it just haunts me. Makes me sad. Beautiful, beautiful music though.

no problems man, hope you enjoy it.


and yeah, i know what you mean about the deceased musicians thing.  in jeff buckley's "nightmares by the sea" (which was released posthumously), there's a line that goes "stay with me under these waves tonight," and what with him having drowned, that line sends a shiver down my spine every time.  it's kind of an obvious one, but there's a few other references to drowning in his lyrics (can't think of the exact lyrics or songs off the top of my head).

Berg - Wozzeck. 

Why have I spent my life not listening to this?  I don't really know, except that I guess I got it into my head when young and impulsive that being mad about Bartók disqualified me from liking the Second Viennese School.  Well, I don't like serialism, but this is not serial; and it's so lush and romantic and human, and the orchestral writing looks forward to Hartmann (and back to earlier Bartók in places), and the operatic writing points ahead to Britten (Peter Grimes and Curlew River in particular) - what's not to love and admire?

Look to find it in the mediaf!re thread shortly.

Nah, it's not a competition. I just hear people praising Oldham a lot more than Molina and I'm not sure why since I think the latter writes more interesting music (Oldham, for example, has never done anything as unique as 'Ghost Tropic' unless I'm very much mistaken) and lyrics that are generally on par or better. They're both really talented thought to be sure.

Garbage should be paying Curve royalties for every record, etc., etc.  Awesome band.  Incidentally, have you heard the early Cranes albums?  They sorta mine the same dark dreampop vein.

Now playing: Loop - Heaven's End reissue.  I know Spacemen 3 loved to slag off on these guys as pale clones.  Certainly, both groups turned their love of late-60s psychedelica and early-70s punk into a similar sound---hell, both covered songs from Suicide's debut album.  But Loop, at moments, sounds both harder (similar to Swervedriver's rock-oriented on shoegaze) and more ambient (where Hampson would take his follow-up project, Main) than SM3.  If they were following in SM3's shoes, they at least bring something new and enjoyable to the mix.

We jacked it from the Mediafire thread recently and we have been talking about how it would've been a great fucking idea to do what we had done. It sounds like Crosby, Stills and Nash meets Gram Parsons-era Byrds. Truly excellent shit.

That made me look for this on Last.fm but alas...no luck.

Er, yeah, Adult Swim really fucked up the distribution of that album.  Vinyl is widely available, but you can only get the CD directly from the website which only ships to the US and Canada (and shipping to Canada is $14 more than the nominal CD price), and the Amazon digital download is restricted to the US.  It's kinda mindblowing they'd cripple the availability of a record that has immediate appeal to two devoted fanbases---both Venture Bros. fans and Jim Thirlwell/Foetus fans have been waiting for it for a long time.  Personally, I'm in both camps.

NP: The Jesus and Mary Chain - Psychocandy.  "In a Hole" is one of the best songs ever.

yeah, they were... I think they've broken up now. but it was like a 6 year wait for their last album...

how to describe what they play... the gothy, post-retro, poppier than they'll admit hard rock with just a hint of the "bleh! I am drac-oo-la" additude... they cover paint it black and tom sawyer (<like THOSE have never been covered!) and the lead singer is cher's son.

not the most complex stuff, but catchy with LOADS of personality( some might say TOO much!)

the double-drums have an awesome effect on that album!  either one drummer's lefthanded or they've panned the drums the other way, because the bass drums are both in the middle, and the rest kinda go symmettrically outwards.  total headfuck, but in a good way.  definitely a headphones album too!

I am exposing myself to Sunn O))) for the first time this afternoon, specifically through Black One.

Out of curiosity, what's the word for when a guitar or two guitars are feedbacking and they sort of go "Waaaaaaaaaaooooooooowaaaaaooooowaaaooowaowowowowowowowowowowooooooooo"? It's the same sort of sound when two tones slowly become in tune with each other.

Just some CD of a 'best of' which always struck me as sort of odd to put out for a classical composer. Or, funnier yet, "BEETHOVEN'S GREATEST HITS" or something to that effect cracks me up. I wasn't aware Beethoven made the radio in his day.

As for right now, I LOVE iTunes shuffle on really eclectic playlists. Last three songs:

Marilyn Manson - The Not-So-Beautiful People (J.G. Thirlwell remix)
Grieg - "Peer Gynt" Suite No. 1 - In the Hall of the Mountain King
Paul Simon - Crazy Love Vol. 2

See, this is my 'favourites - absolute' playlist, which is compromised of only my absolute favourites; that is, songs that I love so much that I can easily put any one of them on repeat and listen to them for an hour straight. Yeah, now it just went to QotSa.

Actually, composers like this were considerable celebrities, and you can see their "greatest hits" in terms of the way selections of their music were published for home performance (the nearest equivalent to radio, i suppose).  When Beethoven was short of money he would arrange "benefit concerts", in which he took the profit himself, relying on his fame and popularity for income.

That makes a little more sense. I usually took it more along the lines of the composer's more famous, well-known works.

Then again, the really popular ones bother me. I used to like Ride of the Valkyries until they stuck it in every goddamn commercial break.

Now playing: The Venture Bros.: The Music of JG Thirlwell.  Best animated show on TV.  Easily the best TV soundtrack, animated or otherwise.

I seem to remember hearing that he did the soundtrack somewhere else. I'm putting it on my list of music to look for, as I've heard a little of his stuff and really enjoyed it (especially his remix of Manson's "Beautiful People").

Apologies for being a month late on the reply---this is what happens when I don't check the thread.

Anyway, yeah, J.G. Thirlwell is my all-time favorite musician and I pretty much had a glee-fit when I first saw the Venture Bros. pilot and recognized all the songs from his most recent albums.  If you like the V-Bros. music, Thirlwell's work as Steroid Maximus and as Manorexia are right in the same vein (the show's theme is actually an edited Steroid Maximus track).

Incidentally, Thirlwell just put the soundtrack CD up in his webshop (foetus.org/shop); it's cheaper there than the Williams Street shop and doesn't have the ridiculous shipping restrictions that Williams Street does.

this is an acoustic album, but it's the most beautiful and sad one i've ever heard.  the guy's wife left him and he lost his job, so he pretty much sold all this belongings, put a few essentials into a bag and is currently living life as a travelling musician with no fixed abode.  takes some real guts to do something like that, i got a lot of respect for the guy, especially when on top of that he's making such amazing music.

haha, can your drummer take 600 drum kits to the rock n roll show?  Now I have worked with a number of good drummers and enjoyed that. But my drum machine has never been in rehab. Never missed a prac because his wife's sisters' dogs' birthday was in the  same week. Also my drum machine also plays all my keyboard parts. While "pounding" the "skins." So, so, yeah. I'm pretty happy with my drum machine. But I don't really utilize that much of the said capacity to do many, many things. Real drums and drummers are real cool. Whatever works. I like both but the mc808 is way more convenient and usable for me.

rock and roll is ever changing.
No, hell no one needs 600 drum kits. That was hyperbole. But the nature of what I do I use drums from many different kits in a set. Also, I am prone to have to play for 3 hours. So variety keeps me from biting people.  heh. Sorry I've been torpedoed by people who are incapable of either keeping time, or telling time. I would never replace Maria with a bass sequence.

Just bought "The Trews - No Time For Later" CD (people still buy CD's !) because I liked the "I Can't Stop Laughing" song with its bagpipes in the intro. Found out the also had some other tracks on the same CD including the title track (score). On the other hand I also shelled out for the new Metric cd only to find it only had one song i like. Well perhaps they might release another single from it later that I can get used to but listening through the whole cd at least 3 times I think thats unlikely. First songs kinda catchy though.

No accounting for taste I guess, but I think they stack together well. It might have to do with the fact that in the spectrum of music I listen to (ie: heavy to soft, melodic to screaming) those 2 songs aren't really that far apart, least not to my ears.

believe me, my spectrum is broader'er... also, I have actually had night recon play randomly after simple survival on my Ipod... since i read your post! spooky!

another one i found odd yet appropriate, was when darkness falls-killswitch engage, followed by Remember -josh groban- live at the greek, and finally Coffee-Aesop Rock....

I have no idea what "I'm Fucking Ben Affleck" is...

Okay, quick/short history for you, and why his appearance was so funny, if you care to check them out...

(Funnier even, cause I'd only heard of him as an Operatic Pianist/singer as well)

Jimmy Kimmel (Late Night Host) always did a stupid joke at the end of his show saying "My apologies to Matt Damon, We ran out of time" Which was to say that Damon wasnt quite important enough to actually make it on the show.
Sarah Silverman (Kimmel's longtime Girlfriend) and Matt Damon made a video entitled "I'm Fucking Matt Damon", with Sarah singing the lead...
Kimmel's rebuttal was "I'm Fucking Ben Affleck", citing that if Matt Damon could have sex with the person most important to him, he (Jimmy) could do the same.
Kimmel went ALL OUT though, getting heaps of celebrities to sing about Kimmel's homosexual relationship with Affleck. I won't give them all away but you'll see heaps of people in it (to the point where I'm very surprised you hadn't heard of it)
I'm talking We Are The World type love fest.
Well worth looking up just for Groban's "He's Fucking Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen, He's Fucking Beeeeen Affleeeeeeeck" line. Not to mention all the other cameos  :-D

Sarah's Video...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QXnHtNSkD4&feature=related (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QXnHtNSkD4&feature=related) (says uncensored, but its not, was made for US Tv so all versions are censored)

dude is a LEGEND.  me and a few mates (including a vocalist who looks very like mr. lynch) covered "kill a kitten" at a talent show back in high school; we upped the heaviness somewhat and had a MASSIVE comedy guitar solo thing where we had to physically restrain the guitarist from carrying on with it - it was funnier than that sounds...  we won the shit right out of that talent show!

"Special" is good, but you really cant go wrong with anything off of his "Live at El Rey" dvd. (posted and reposted all over youtube)

I'd recommend Craig, Special, Talk to Me and Superhero from that show.  For The Ladies and Love Song as well if you're into raunchy humor that comes completely out of left field.

All 4 of his albums are great with Superhero being the best, Craig Machine a close, close 2nd. He's got 2 Comedy Central specials floating around as well if you're interested. He's really an artist you have to watch to get the full effect. The facial features alone are worth the price of admission. I put a couple of links to his vids in the Comedians thread last month if u need a good starting point.

Ouchness...
Solution #1: Trust me and go to your nearest CD store and import his Live At El Rey Dvd? I imported it to New Zealand, took a week. Was actually cheaper than one of his CDS (US$14.95 instead of $19.95) and has more content. These were the prices a couple years ago now, coulda changed.
Solution #2: Youtube + Patience
Solution #3: You can download a few of his mp3s for free at stephenlynch.com
Solution #4: Torrents + More Patience.

Current 93 - Aleph at Hallucinatory Mountain

Freakin' cool, Current 93 goes all-out rock on this album.  It's akin to isolated bits in C93's back-catalogue like "Hitler as Kalki (SDM)," "Black Ships Ate the Sky" and the Lucifer Over London EP.  Shades of doom metal, psychedelic rock, desert rock are all over the place.  While the teaser EP certainly hinted at this direction, it didn't really prepare me for how good it is in practice.

if you like that foxboro hot tubs album, you NEEEEEED to hear "buying the lie" and "songs to ____ to" by Death on Wednesday, like, yesterday or something.  they're a similar sort of thing - kinda pop punk with a 50s rock influence.  their singer also sounds like the bastard child of danzig and morrissey too.  in a REALLY good way.  their drummer went on to drum in The Bronx.  and the other fella in the band was called Kevin Smith (not THAT kevin smith!).

Been a while since I posted in this thread, so why not do it tonight!

Currently rocking a playlist in iTunes that I titled "ROAR!" - this list consists of only 3 albums; "Wake/Lift" by Rosetta, "Oceanic" by Isis, and "A Sun That Never Sets" by Neurosis. The more clever of you may divine the fact that this goes in reverse order of which band begat which other band.

All three of them are good!

i've still not checked out neurosis properly yet, but those other two albums are awesome!  "wake" by rosetta could possibly be my favourite post-metal song ever!

i'm currently listening to the new idlewild album (my pre-order arrived this morning - yay!!!).  it's like a mixture of the best bits of the last 3 or 4 albums, with a really summery feel - loving it so far!

It's definitely their weakest album since [Self-Titled], but I still like it. I don't think they'll ever top Liberate Te Ex Inferis though. I will always have love for Zao; they were the first heavy band I ever heard, and opened my eyes up to so much more great music. Plus they're from Pittsburgh!

@ SWOON- Yeah, those guys are crazy technical.  My fave track off that one is "Ember."  My only thing about Extol, however, is that I did get burned out on them quite quickly.  They are a nice listen every once in a while, however.

@Will- I think that Liberate Te Ex Infernis was really good as well.  Funeral of God was my first exposure to Zao, and this may be why it's always held a special place in my heart.  Zao was also one of the first bands of the genre I had discovered.

@ Those who've heard the new mewithoutYou- I've been debating whether to buy it.  How does it compare to their other CD's?  I'd say Brother, Sister is probably my fave.  Catch for Us the Foxes is a strong second.

Messiaen - Quartet for the End of Time.

In 1940, Olivier Messiaen (1908-92) was interned in a German prison camp, where he discovered among his fellow prisoners a clarinettist, a violinist and a violoncellist. The success of a short trio which he wrote for them led him to add seven more movements to this Interlude, and a piano to the ensemble, to create the Quartet for the End of Time. Messiaen and his friends first performed it for their 5000 fellow prisoners on January 15, 1941.

Like all Messiaen's work, it is stuffed full of religious symbolism.

That sounds interesting, I will have to remember to check it out.  Speaking of composers whose work is full of religious symbolism, I’m not listening to Arvo Pärt’s Litany.

The Legend of Zelda: The Metal Soundtrack

Right now, Jesus Christ Superstar with Ian Gillan as Jesus.

Cannot get over his voice.

i can beat that, in a bad way...

I'm listening to Ecco the Dolphin: The Split stream of time by Viper.fox....

Are you beating Jesus Christ Superstar, or Zelda?

Just joking.  That is good.  Together we can form a video game music nerd trifecta and take over the world!  Or at least annoy the hell out of Koji Kondo by continously sending him letters for his autograph!

Right now - Duck Hunt Theme

It's kind of hit and miss. The Dark World and Kaepora Gaebora themes I generally skip, the Kakariko Village and Clock Town themes are okay, but the best ones would be the Gerudo Valley, Hyrule Overworld, and Saria's Song. It's a free download. Try looking up "Metal Zelda Soundtrack by Jim Cook" on youtube, because he has links to download it there. I'll be damned to find it right now.

The Crane Wife 3 - The Decemberists

Saw them for the first time last Saturday.  Truly excellent concert experience: I had just enough delicious beer (Summit Scandia for you connoisseurs out there) to get a nice buzz going, but not too much that I was preoccupied with the effects of the alcohol.  Instead, I rocked out to the entirety of Hazards of Love, then sang along with some of the songs that got me into good music, like Leslie Anne Levine and Engine Driver.  They ended with a cover of Heart's Crazy on You, which, while extremely humorous (and thoroughly awesome), was somewhat of a letdown.  But still, great concert.

Post by: Zingoleb on 04 Jul 2009, 17:19
I used to like the Killer. I think it was mostly that I heard a song by them and someone said it was the Killers and I thought it was pretty catchy and original sounding and always had in the back of my mind that I liked the Killers.

Then I sat down and listened to them and recoiled in horror. About the most I can say for them is that I really dig the chorus in "Somebody Told Me" (or whatever the title of that is).

Monteverdi - L'Orfeo

I am listening to an E.P. called "Not Much of a Man" by Toehider, which is the pseudonym of a Melbourne (formerly Perth) musician named Michael Mills. Mike used to be in a band called Template who played progressive rock which was alternately bombastic like Rush or Muse and atmospheric and moody like Camel or Gentle Giant. Since Template ended he has been making solo EPs under the Toehider name.

For the past 3 months, and continuing for another 9, he has been making one EP per month. "Not Much of a Man" is simple acoustic guitar and vocals stuff, and it is achingly beautiful.

You can stream the entire album for free, and get more information here (http://www.toehider.com/12in12/). Please check it out.

Yeah, it's one of those records that shouldn't be obscure - it was on Equal Vision and produced by the same dude who was responsible for the first three Coheed albums, so it's not like it was hard to find - but for some reason, hardly anyone I've ever known has heard it. That record never fails to bring a smile to my face though.

That Mogwai/Sigur Ros song is a fake. There's a FAQ on Mogwai's website in which they state that they never worked with Sigur Ros and don't plan to. That's probably why it's boring.  :-D

Overboard by The Rosenbergs.

First heard this song from a show called Undergrads. It was on the first season (series) finally. I just fell in love with the song while watching Undergrads again (it's be years since I've seen that show). Sadly like the show, I guess The Rosenbergs are not doing anything anymore. It's a shame, I really wanted to see them life :(

I hate how I always find an awesome band, to only find out that they're not around anymore, this sucks :(

Anyways, here's the song on youtube. It's a pretty repetitive song, but I really like the mellowness to it.

I think it's very important to give yourself time to find an appropriate place and time to listen to a specific album - otherwise it might go totally over your head and you won't ever listen to it again. At least, that's my experience. I didn't feel like listening to Merryweather Post-Pavillion when it first came out and I still don't, but I bet that time will come.

The Secret Machines - Now Here Is Nowhere

This album was recommended to me by Brian Aubert, and it's so good that the music, to me, overshadows that fact.

I don't know if anybody can relate with this, but I'll suddenly look at it after months of not thinking about it and just go, "That," and end up listening to it constantly for two weeks.  Then I'll wake up one morning and I'll just forget about it completely and go onto my usual attention-deficient routine of picking and listening to music.

I think the only other two albums I do this with are Wincing The Night Away by The Shins and Takk by Sigur Ros.  I also seem to do it with Led Zeppelin's discography, too.

Before Million Dead Frank Turner and Ben (I think? The dude that was also in Palehorse) the drummer were in a band called Kneejerk when they were teenagers. They did two albums and a split with Abjure if I remember right. The first album is really wonky, they were daftly young when they made it and it shows. The Half-Life Of Kissing was their 2000 swansong, I'm not even sure they were still together when it came out. It's emo metallic hardcore but they'd obviously been listening to a lot of Refused and Canvas and decided to include electronic bits and generally get very odd with lots of long songs and samples. It's very teenage and hasn't always aged well, particularly when Frank tries singing instead of screaming, but there's still some great moments and it remains my favourite Frank Turner record. It's his time in this band that he's singing about in Back In The Day from Sleep Is For The Weak.

I think this is an offshoot of Masada?  In any case, some quite lovely Jewish/jazz hybrid from certified-genius John Zorn.  I've also been listening to Trojan Dub Massive Chapter 1 & 2, which are Bill Laswell's compilation/(somewhat) remix albums of Trojan's back catalogue.  'Cause when the words Bill Laswell are used in conjunction with dub, the results will be assuredly good.

I never met a person who knows about Acid Bath but dislikes the music. For me the album "When The Kit String Pops" is along with Esoteric's "The Manical Vale" the best albums I've heard in my life.

You gotta love that disturbing as hell chorus with the vocals:

We are the dead next door
Turned up to loud
Where the dirty needles shine and litter the floor
It's too fucking loud
Taste the light, inject the lord
It's too fucking loud
I cut my self again because I'm so fucking bored
It's too fucking loud
We are the dead next door

When I saw them bout two months ago they played these new songs though I really couldn't appreciate them not knowing them. God, I can't wait till August when I get to see them again. These new songs are so good! They have evolved quite nicely as a band.

For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about they play a brilliant mix of post-rock and emo. It's really quite excellent.

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

I got this record after seeing lots of good reviews, and I have to say I'm sorry I did.  Even the best reviews of this album admit that originality isn't its strong point, but claim that it makes up for it in strength of songwriting.  While I certainly hear the musical influences (so much that recalling where I've heard bits of the songs before takes up most of my listening experience), I don't hear the songwriting quality at all. 

The album, to me, suggests nothing more than some kind of average mean of every passable album filler track and b-side released by a British indie band from the mid-80s to the early-90s.  It's pleasant and immediately familiar and has no discernible personality of its own.

Grizzly Bear-  Horn of Plenty

Just got rereleased on vinyl for the first time, and I'm wondering why this particular album is rarely talked about.  Effortlessly swoony lo-fi tunes with a twinge of psych.  Service Bell with the girls voice loop is brilliant.

I have actually just now gotten a listen to My Bloody Valentine's Loveless, and I have to say, this is some of the best music I've ever heard.  It's a bit harsh and sharp, which is something I don't usually go for, but the sheer quality in a song like "To Here Knows When" is just astounding.  Also I would like to take Bilinda Butcher's voice out on a series of romantic, but charmingly simple dates, meet its family, marry it, and then sire several ethereal disembodied voices by rapid and non-stop consumation of said marriage.

i've actually listened to the stream before but it was ages ago.  i remember thinking it was really good though. similar feel to the last blacklisted album.  s'good stuff, i like my hardcore to be emotionally-heavy and mostly free of cliched breakdowns, and it seems a lot of stuff on deathwish right now it fitting that bill nicely!  i heard my brother (who usually listens to nothing but dubstep...) blasting out a coupla doomriders tracks the other day and it sounded badass, so i'll be checking those out soon too!

I just listened to Loveless tonight after hearing SO MANY RAVE REVIEWS OF IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN and expected to find myself an album that I would fall in love with (I think my expectations were raised highest by a comparison between that and Mr. Beast, which is one of my favourite albums).

It was so boring that I could not stand it. I really run into this a lot.

The best way for me to comment is to go se one of their shows. Sadly, I missed the last time they were in Montreal.

Right now, I'm listening to Better In Hoboken  by Franz Ferdinand.

I really love Franz Ferdinand. Their material is of incredible quality and the B-sides shouldn't even be B-sides. They are as good and sometimes even better than the A-sides or the albums tracks. I<m gonna go see them in 2 weeks. I expect my face to be rocked out.

I have to be really careful listening to that album, it is the one album that can actually depress me. Albums about the process of aging and the slow death it creates? I'll sing along happily (as long as it's in private). Songs about mutilation, murder, drug addiction, and rape? Fine. Fear of a Blank Planet one too many times? Puts me in a horribly depressed mood all day.

but nu-metal as a genre has/had way to many talented individuals to just disregard because it stopped being trendy (or because it got trendy in the first place)

I mean, shit MachineHead did like 2 (If he never raps again, I will not shed a tear)really solid Nu-metal albums...

I just dont see the point of dismissing  any genre, because the prime examples for it are pootastic...

had I done that I never would have found out I like Aesop Rock, Blue scholar and atmosphere...

Well, I can't really say without being biased since Alexisonfire are practically the first hardcore sounding band I ever listened to.

If you don't like either this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2j8TGqaKKU) or that (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMkwxd2fSg4), I don't think you'll like most of their stuff. But that's just my opinion.

Pen To The Paper -- Parlovr

I'm really falling in love with that band. Tey have incredibly energy on stage. Their music is just so damn good, catchy, raw and really great Also, it sounds like if Wolf Parade and Malajube had an english singing baby.

Local bands FTW.

Not all locales have good local bands.  I lived in Charleston, SC for five years, and a "local band" there meant "jam band cover band."  You had to dig pretty deep to find good ones (which were legitimately good).

Charon - "Rust"

This is the song that convinced me to fall in love with this band.  Hooray for Pandora!

You got a point there, but something about a good band being from where you live/lived in for all your life, makes their music even better, even though no one should judge someone's music by the area they come from.
Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: Bastardous Bassist on 01 Sep 2009, 16:39
Oh, I agree that music is better if it's by people who come from the same city as you, but sometimes even that can't make certain bands palatable.

Circus Maximus - "Ultimate Sacrifice"

So cheesy.  Soooooo cheesy.

That's why I said ''a good band''.

The Pre-release version of ''Lucid Dreams'' by Franz Ferdinand. As good as the album version, although more straightforward.

Saosin - In Search of Solid Ground

kind of drab compared to even their self-titled album, and ultra-drab compared to the Translating the Name EP. Seems this promising band has been affected by major-label-drab-a-matosis. Still an ok listen though.

Sam & Dave - "I Thank You"

One of my favorite groups ever.  They're so funky and soulful.

edit:  Now Brave - "Falling Into Bliss"
I edit to say this because of the previous discussion on local bands.  They're one from DC (where I grew up), and a couple of the members worked at a music store with one of my friends in high school before the store closed.  I think it probably does make me enjoy them a little bit more knowing them and knowing that they're from DC.
