Thanks to a horrific harddrive crash, I'm in the process of re-ripping some 2000-odd CDs to a new laptop, and along the way I'm rediscovering some awesome stuff I haven't listened to in some time.  The latest rediscovery being Devin Townsend's "Earth Day." (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDcpF4C5cas)

That's not what drum 'n' bass is!

Also, I'm listening to a full orchestra do pieces from the Zelda series. I still feel gipped; there's a number of songs (Song of Storms, most notably, as well as, say, Bolero of Fire or Saria's Song or Song of Healing) that could have translated really well to a full orchestra, and yet, they choose to do such themes as...Kakariko Village? Oi.

My friend, the ultimate hipster, plays pop-punk on her ukelele. The longest song is 1:57, and most are about a minute. I love how short and to the point they are, cutting out all frills while staying as fun as music can be.

Got to talk about codes and conventions for three "very different" music videos. Not sick of the songs yet but I'll probably mute them soon enough. Spent most of the morning rewatching them.

The three I'm doing, I think:

Carrie Underwood - Before He Cheats (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaSy8yy-mr8&ob=av2e) (Originally thought of Dixie Chicks - Goodbye Earl (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gw7gNf_9njs&ob=av2e) because it's the squeaky clean video despite dark lyrics, but figured I should have one pretty conventional video to talk about)

Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal [Full Version] (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWucYbAp8Lk) (Still debating doing You Rock My World (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4tpuu-Up90) instead)

Bloodhound Gang - Uhn Tiss Uhn Tiss (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_RGaSV0KIg&ob=av2e) (Wanted to do Ballad of Chasey Lane (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=If9fC9aJd-U&feature=relmfu) but thought the Uhn Tiss video was more interesting to analyse)

A back-garden neighbour (that we'd never met before) came round a week ago to complain about our dogs barking, and we discussed ways I could control this.  He emailed today to thank us for improving things, and then made some comments about my web site.  That led on naturally to pointing me at his folk group's website, which I have enjoyed listening to:

Moonrakers (http://www.moonrakers.net/videos.php)

Several weeks ago we were at the house of a friend, and he was talking about the Moonrakers.  I wrote down the name of the group but had not followed it up.  However, tonight I did, and I am about to download all of their albums from CD Baby.

Post by: celticgeek on 24 Feb 2012, 21:37
This is interesting.  When I clicked on this song, my browser said that it was 1:45 long,
which seemed pretty short for a piece of Jeph's music.  However, it actually lasted 9:10,
which was more like it. 

I liked the music.

I have the score of an organ piece that includes the instruction to hold a chord for longer than the length of any other piece of music.  Since there is an organ piece by Cage that is being performed over 639 years (http://www.john-cage.halberstadt.de/new/index.php?seite=dasprojekt&l=e), holding a single chord for longer seems a little impractical.

I'm with D Nomms. Everything I've heard either sounds like an equipment malfunction or well that it really wouldn't matter if you played the song right or wrong. I cut my teeth on Eno's On Land, and Music for Airports. I probably lost some hearing @ SY's Daydream Nation live in a club. I really try to find something in nearly every genre I encounter. But dub step makes me just angry and want to punch everything.

This improv collab EP between Venetian Snares and John Frusciante (and some other dude who nobody knows), under the name Speed Dealer Moms (what a fucking awesome name). Should be better than it is; they're both musical geniuses (in my opinion), but I guess it's an improv project with no edits or overdubs or anything of the sorts, they're doing pretty well.

Also, band called OFF!, which is Keith Morris reliving American hardcore in the 21st century, which I am seeing in... a fortnight or so now, actually. Great band (at the moment; I have a feeling that they'll go shit eventually), but at the moment it's incredibly fresh and energising music. Favourite song is probably Harbour Freeway Blues at the moment.

Oh, and also the Beatles. I'm liking Abbey Road a lot at the moment :3

This is just completely odd, given my personal history, but bear with me:

After hearing Sir Paul's take on "The End" at the Opening Ceremonies at the London Olympics, I knew I had to just go out and get a copy of the album that it is on - Abbey Road, for you young whippersnappers.

Now, back in the day I might have gone and gotten a CD from my local Best Buy or Wal-Mart. Of course, that was back when I wasn't 15-30 minutes away from the local Best Buy or Wal-Mart. So my option was to buy the album from iTunes.

Not so difficult, right? Well, that was when my computer decided that it was way too hot in our office, and decided to give me the De-Rez screen to let me know. Unfortunately, I had to leave for work in a few minutes, so I pulled out my iPod Touch, swiped a few screens, and bingo - the entire album was downloaded for me, right to my iPod.

I listened to a bit of it at work, and thought to myself, "Man, if you could go back to 1970 and explain what I just did to buy the album to the four of them, they'd think I was on a real bad acid trip or something."

Of course, you miss part of the experience.  Leaving the runout groove of Sgt Pepper playing for ages while trying to work out what it means; getting caught out by the hidden track on Abbey Road (the long pause on the LP before Her Majesty).  Also physical extras like the Sgt Pepper cutouts and the Let It Be photo book (still on my shelf).

I'll be completely honest, I only listen to her because the rhythms are catchy...I hardly even listen to lyrics. That's why J-Pop appeals so much to me, even when I can't understand much Japanese at all.

Let´s listen to this

or if you have the album listen to that.

Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum

Funny, I just took this off of my iPod. (Love and Theft is possibly my favourite Dylan album, but this last summer it was the onyl cassette my father had that I could stand to listen to so I got burned out on it, fast.)

Yea, definitely great, great album, but I will have to lay off it a while too before I get burned out on it.

I love this album
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xuoQ_KvayKk

I rarely listen to albums as a whole but when I first got it I was in love and up late at night and it was just one of those perfect music-moments when everything just feels right and everything is good and awesome.

Post by: Mr. Doctor on 09 Nov 2012, 15:43
Hah.... Now you left me even more baffled since I'm a big fan of The Angelic Process and drone in general. No offence. I just can't see any similarities at all besides both bands being metal and from the USA.



EDIT: Hopefully I didn't sound like a know-it-all asshole because that was definitely not the intention. The comment sounded friendlier in my head. I can drop a few drone names if you like!

I'm making an album of covers for the gf. Me with guitar and voice. It's mainly composed of songs she likes, but also songs I hope she will like... and maybe award me for it. Like, with baked goods or something.

So far I have:

Elliott Smith: Clementine
Thelonious monster: Happy #12 and #35
Bob Dylan: I threw it all away
The Shins: Mine's not a high horse
Elliott Smith: the biggest lie
Big Star: Thirteen
Billy Bragg: A new england
John Frusciante: Going inside
Beatles: When I'm 64 (she loves it more than any other song I've played to her, which is sort of a let down but whatever)
Heatmiser: Half Right

Probably in that order. Any cool suggestions?

Many years ago, my grandmother died. At the time, I was away near Wales working as a youth leader.

I didn't know how to handle it. I sat down in my room and pushed play on the CD player, and Joy Division's Closer album played.

I used that album for my grief. A year or two later I was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. A million behaviours were explained, and suddenly I didn't want to be that way any more. I stopped being so introverted, became confident. I stopped listening to Joy Division. Any time I played all my MP3s on random and a Joy Division song came up, I would skip it, because I just wasn't sad enough to need music like that in my life as a comfort.

I was happy, for years. And even during my depression this past year, I was happy to an extent.

Then she left.

I was listening to my MP3s on random. Joy Division came on, the song 'Decades.'

I listened to it, and it felt right.

This is one of many, many albums of theirs, and this is the only one I can think of that is specifically devoted to the dark side of prescription drugs. But yeah, you have a point.

Listen to that song if you haven't, btw, it makes for a great song about an FWB relationship that neither party feels all that great about. I've been there, so that's why I can't stop singing this song (I've never done heroin, sooo yeah not really relevant to me).

I didn't have anywhere to go, anywhere to store my things, my friendship with that roommate had all but dissolved into nothing, no job, and literally nothing going for me. He sang me this song and I cried and cried, and he got me coffee.

Mead is a honey wine. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mead)  There are those who do not think that Bunratty Mead (http://www.bunrattymead.net/) is real mead, and it may not be.  However, it is a sweet wine, with a crisp taste, and an after taste that I can't truly identify, although it reminds me of anise.  I really like it. 

My daughter and son-in-law brought sample bottles of it back from a trip to Ireland, and gave it to me as a Christmas gift.  They also brought me back a sample bottle of pocheen, which I have not tried yet.
Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: Bluesummers on 24 Feb 2013, 20:58
Ahh, okay. In that case, mead would be closer to rum, which is distilled from sugarcane molasses or sugarcane juice. An excellent beverage indeed. Potcheen's method sounds similar to American moonshine, usually distilled from corn, but uses other materials when necessary (barley, bananas, etc).

Aaaaand to keep these posts from defaulting to the sobriety thread...I am currently listening to my cat purring over the lyrical majesty of Mr. Freddie Mercury and his delightful companions. They're crooning a ballad known as "Bohemian Rhapsody".
Title: Re: What are you listening to?

Yes, potcheen is essentially Irish moonshine.  And I am currently watching my cat (who is trying to sleep on a shelf above my computer) as I listen to Alex Beaton, currently singing "Sound The Pibroch".

celticgeek: You like Laphroaig? Have you tried the Laphroaig Quarter Cask? I much prefer it over ordinary Laphroaig, the taste is even stronger, but not the taste of alcohol. I brought a bottle to a Whisky meeting at the 29C3, and there were many people who liked it most. Though I preferred the 14 years old Talisker Distillers Edition someone was kind enough to bring.

And what is not to like about mead?

And to participate in the original intention of the thread: currently I'm listening to Mogwai's "Music for a Forgotten Future (The Singing Mountain)". So unbelievably soothing. I'm fairly new to this kind of music, but during the last week I've been listening nearly solely to Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai and Sigur Rós.

Watch Higashi No Eden? Falling Down is the opening song for that anime and it's absolutely brilliant.

Although if it's the more proggy elements of that version that you like, check out Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson. They have similar stuff although all of Steven Wilson's music has a sort of haunted, creepy feeling to it. Jethro Tull may also be something you enjoy, it's kind of proggy hardrock with a lot of flutes that are similar to that song (or more likely, those parts were very heavily inspired by Ian Anderson).

Die Antwoord - Liewe Maatjies (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVKSZkH004k)

The problem with Die Antwoord is that their first album was just too bloated. Beat Boy was literally twice as long as it needed to be, and a lot of songs just had nothing that made them stand out, the rapping is sub-par, and I'm not even touching this monstrosity (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo6EkXHu5AI). It has its moments (Wat Kyk Jy, Enter the Ninja, $copie, $o$) but by and large it's a fairly forgettable album.

Which is strange, given that their second album is such a killer. It's like the difference between Gaga's The Fame and The Fame Monster - someone, at some point, realised that an album with 20 mediocre songs on it isn't as good as an album with 10 great songs on it.

Listening to the new Daughter (http://www.ohdaughter.com/) album, If You Leave. Been a while since I've anticipated new music like this, and it didn't disappoint.

A couple of links I've posted before: Still (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUWrcFpmI5U), the first single from the album, and a live set (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwFTBgeslF0) that has 3-4 more songs from the new album along with older stuff.

I went to my grandpa's house for his birthday this past weekend. My aunt and one cousin/best friend/former band mate that passed away about two years ago also lived there. She's just now kind of okay with letting people up into his room and trying to get rid of some things that don't really have any specific sentimental value to anybody in the family and wouldn't have much resale value if she were to try to sell it. So she gave me the giant cd binder he used to keep in his car prior to my finding him a used 30gb ipod for cheap that he drove around with his last few months. A lot of what's in there is pretty scratched up. There was a good deal of admittedly terrible stuff in there and a lot of stuff I like but either already had or that I burned for him in the first place. But I did fish out a few gems that I've been enjoying the hell out of the past couple days including:

Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Further Out

Link Wray & The Wraymen - Rumble! The Best Of Link Wray

The Sundays - Reading, Writing And Arithmetic

Rancid - B Sides And C Sides (very hit or miss, but not bad considering I got it for free and Rancid is definitely a band he and I bonded over a lot)

Sublime - Robbin' The Hood (i forgot how good this was cuz of all their later radio hits getting played to death)

The Merkurs - Let's Rock and In The Shadows burnt onto one cdr. (I definitely like the "New Music For The New Year" or whatever its official title was ep that came out circa 2006 better, but this definitely brought back some great memories of the summer prior to that when i first saw/met these great folks.)

Eeeeeeeeeeee! New Amaranthe album! <3 <3 <3 I'm freaking loving it too! The first four songs on the album, Afterlife, Invincible, The Nexus and Theory of Everything (above) have me head over heels, the rest of the album's pretty solid too. An excellent sophomore effort. Now if only they'd come to the U.S. on tour....

Though I got to see Nightwish on tour last year, and Dropkick the year before that, so suppose I shouldn't be too greedy about getting to see my favorite bands live.

It was the show in Denver right before Annette left the band. She got rushed to the hospital, so instead we got treated to one of the most intimate concerts I've ever been to, mass karaoke, Elyse Ryd (of Amaranthe, touring with Kamelot) giving one of the ballsiest performances I've ever seen, she did Amaranth with 15 minutes to learn the lyrics killed it. Marco sang Planet Hell (which is epic with all male vocals) some of their instrumental pieces got worked into the set list, and of course the world premier of Rest Calm live. Marco at one point said something like "You know there's points up here on the Rock and Roll stage, where we yell at the crowd "I can't hear you" well I goddamn well can tonight!"

Also for the record, I'm shocked you'd ask so brashly about such an intimate act in public. I mean you'd at least have to buy me dinner first

All depends on what I'm doing. when I'm just looking at server/firewall/backup logs or other mindless mundane stuff it is nice to have some tunes. When I'm digging through databases to see how someone messed something up or am compiling some details for contract negotiations the music can be less than helpful.

Said it before, will say it again - the band name 'Vampire Weekend' is a waste, firstly because they are a shitty afro-pop band or some shit with a dark band name and secondly because 'Weekend Vampires' is a much better name. Someone (I wanna say Pat?) has tried to say that the former is a good thing because it throws you off about the nature of the band, but I guess I'm only okay with that if it's a band I like.

Laphroaig in hand, I am listening to Norbert Kraft's recording of the complete solo guitar works of Heitor Villa-Lobos.

Norbert Kraft is a great guitarist. His version of Julia Florida is still my favourite. And Villa-Lobos was a genius. I'm still considering spending a year learning one of his Preludes or Etudes. (Maybe Prelude No. 1)

Anyway, before I opened this thread and got the urge to put on my Norbert Kraft CD I was listening to Sigur Rós' "Kveikur". When I first listened to it I didn't like the new style (see the "What the fuck did he just say?" thread), but after listening to it more I like it better and better. It's very noisy and sounds very aggressive, especially in comparison with the older Albums, but except for a few moments where the distortion becomes too much, it's a good Album. It's definitely different. Bláþráður is my favourite song at the moment, but Kveikur is great too.

Damn, there's so much random shit in my music collection…

I'm cleaning it up right now. But I had to listen to so much bad music in an even worse quality, because me from the far past didn't consider id3 tags to be important.

Now I've reduced the files in my "unsorted" folder to 10, which I've acquired in higher quality (I was surprised to notice that a small portion of that music was in fact released under a creative commons license) and which I'll keep for nostalgia's sake.

Here's an example of what music 13 year old me listened to:

And as an apology here's an example of what music 18 year old me listened to most of the time today:

"Origins" by God is an Astronaut.

Because it's awesome. Different, but awesome. And I have the limited edition vinyl. Even though the official release is on September 13, they have started shipping them some time ago. And the online sales are running as well. I don't quite understand why they'd set the release date so late. (and on my birthday incidentally)

But the album is awesome!

Another area band that a friend pointed out to me, Atlas and Arrows (https://www.facebook.com/atlasandarrows). Indie/Folk, female lead with a smooth and smoky voice. They just had a successful Kickstarter to record an album, and here are a couple of the professionally produced songs out of that.

Here's a cover of a Peter Bjorn and John song "Young Folks"

And here's an original, "Hands"

Another area band that a friend pointed out to me, Atlas and Arrows (https://www.facebook.com/atlasandarrows). Indie/Folk, female lead with a smooth and smoky voice. They just had a successful Kickstarter to record an album, and here are a couple of the professionally produced songs out of that.

Here's a cover of a Peter Bjorn and John song "Young Folks"
[soundcloud]https://soundcloud.com/atlasandarrows/young-folks-cover[/soundcloud]

And here's an original, "Hands"
[soundcloud]https://soundcloud.com/atlasandarrows/hands[/soundcloud]

Now listen to those (and even the demos on the rest of the Soundcloud page) and tell me whether you'd guess they're all 16 and still in high school.
Got a chance to film these guys on Friday. Such a solid set, confidently presented. I'm even more impressed with the limitless potential here.

And then the songs take place after they've kept drinkin'. This song is about how they feel about each other and the great love they wish they had, instead of the case of vodka they traded it in for."

I keep my radio tuned to 106.5, a rock station out of Charlotte, NC. There's a suburb of Charlotte called China Grove that often gets mentioned on there during traffic reports because a busy interstate runs through it, and it always makes me think of this song. It's part of their "line-up," so one day I want them to play this right after talking about it.

Karnivool's 2013 album Asymmetry. Good album, if you're into Tool-esque prog rock. Not an easy listen tho, takes some effort to "get into" the music, with odd time signatures and pacing, and few straight-forward catchy riffs/melodies. Recommended listens: "Who We Are (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_E5ae9ZTwk)", "Aeons (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TKC3jW6fzk)". Personally, I prefer their previous album, Sound Awake. (My favorite song from that album, Karnivool in general and pretty much at all; "New Day (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtpIS2pQ-6w)")

My impression after listening to it was that it's about weed. "One more time to kill the pain" is the tip off for me. Apparently when Mike Campbell was asked about it he only gave cryptic answers. Usually if enough people imply that a song is about something that it isn't (such as with Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds) the artist will come right out and say it.

Have anyone hear listened to Major Parkinson? They're a Norwegian, but very foreign sounding eclectic prog rock group, that's best described like a heavier version of Cardiacs. They have a two albums out, with a third due shortly. I really recommend checking them out; they write great melodies and hooky riffs, with a sound and style that's quite different from most every other band, while still being reasonably accessible.

Recommended listens:
"197 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3NZj3QzV0I)" (Major Parkinson)
"Bazooka Mirror (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SwdxfPqPOUo)" (Major Parkinson)

Major Parkinson's new album, Twilight Cinema. Got it in the mail today, pretty good so far, though it is the kind of music that takes a while to grow on you. Definitively not an easy listen, a little more progressive and experimental than their previous two albums, which is saying quite a bit.

I don't really care much about Macklemore in this case. Christopher Mansfield that beautiful chorus, on the other hand.

As far as Macklemore, he's written a lot of great songs (Same Love, My Oh My, Neon Cathedral) If I were him I wouldn't be happy that I poured my heart out into those songs but became famous for a stupid song about a thrift shop. That's just me, though.

Wow, songwriting with real impact. You weren't kidding about the feels.

More young artists who know what the hell they're doing. Full set from The Westwards (https://www.facebook.com/thewestwards) headlining a major club for the first time, and bringing it ALL.

Their bassist, Madi Sipes (https://www.facebook.com/madisipes3), played a solo set just before. Just turned 17.
Also: "King" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLBRZhSJxpE), "Long Distance Lovers" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtTXkSGR1Ko), "She" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkn2rRhD1vA), and a Lady Gaga cover "Do What U Want" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGXk_Op2_aI).

Recently I've been listening to a radio station a lot. It's DR P8 Jazz. It's the Jazz station of Danmarks Radio, which is basically the danish BBC. I've been finding a lot of great new music through it, and my most recent discovery is the small danish band Radiostar. I find their music hard to categorise, all I can say is that it's great.

Here's the song that got me hooked:
[soundcloud]https://soundcloud.com/michaelblicher/02-things-in-the-wind[/soundcloud]

Their music is basically only available on Bandcamp, and their English translation is terrible, but the music is great. (Could any of our danish members provide a better translation of the Mannish album description?)

A coincidence! I bought that on CD just last week. An old recording (ADD) from late 70s IIRC. Sir Neville at the helm (or playing a fiddle?) of Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

But this week this piece (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sn0K1TIYQJU) has nearly reached earworm status.

The two are connected in the sense that the pianist/composer of that trio is in the habit of claiming that Bach was a jazz composer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyFu3xV4zLA). And he's not alone in thinking that way (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xng_QbhHGY).

Very nice.  For a lot of those works, I actually prefer the older recordings (hence why most of Sibelius, Bach, Mahler, and Wagner is all on old (but in good condition) vinyl.  I *did* once have a boxed set with all of Wagner's Ring Cycle on CD, but sadly, not any more.

Well, I was just listening to Oxford Town by Bob Dylan.

I...I don't know how this is possible, but there's no uploads of his version of it on YouTube, just a whole bunch of covers.

So, um...here's one of those covers (much more uptempo than the original) while I contemplate how such a thing is possible. I think Bob Dylan might be God. So I'm sure as hell not going to upload one, out of fear that lightning will strike me down.

Her site describes her as “A guitar-slinging chanteuse with a voice that could lay the Southern Ocean down to rest”, and that is by no means an inaccurate description. Mein Gott.  :psyduck:

MBV never were on the top of my list of shoegaze bands for various reasons, was always more into Cocteau Twins, Slowdive, Lush, Curve, etc.  Asobi Seksu is a second generation American group too.  And sometimes a bit harder than the others ('cept maybe Curve).

Just got back from watching Nirvana live from Feb 12th, 1990. This was a couple of different video filmed at the local club during the 2nd show of their first tour for their first album (attendance 65 at the original show). Another videographer edited the 2 sources together and the result was shown on the big screen at the downtown classic movie palace. Pretty darn good audio and video for the time and how long those tapes have been sitting on the shelf.

Raw and powerful stuff coming off of that dinky and cramped stage, and you can tell exactly why they became an unstoppable force that changed the entire music industry. Unfortunately, I wasn't into the live music scene at the time, so wasn't at the show, but I remember specifically seeing the music video for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and very consciously thinking "this changes everything". I wasn't even that much of a fan, but if you saw how absolutely dominating and omnipresent Hair Metal was in the popular culture for anything that was considered "hard" in music back then, you'd get it.

"Five Leaves Left" isn't consistently genius-level as "Pink Moon," but there's some gorgeous stuff on there. I didn't care nearly as much for "Bryter," aside from "One of These Things First" (I have to be in just the right mood for "Hazey Jane").
Title: Re: What are you listening to?

Hazey Jane II doesn't do anything for me aside from disappoint. This whole album seems to be geared a little too heavily toward overproduced 70s pop.

Joe Boyd produced the first two. The impression I got is that Drake was unhappy with "Bryter" especially, which was why "Pink Moon" was basically just him and an engineer. I'm not sure, though, how much of the interference on the second album came from Boyd and how much came from Chris Blackwell (after all, look how much Blackwell commercialized Bob Marley's sound on a lot of his Island albums). I think that after "Five Leaves" sold so badly, they probably consciously decided to go in a more poppy direction for "Bryter".

The "Layla" part of "Layla" isn't even that great. Duane's solo, on the other hand, easily stands on its own. It's less a solo than a song in its own right.

If this is even remotely near your cup of tea, then you should definitively check out "Sons of Winter and Stars", a 13+ min long epic with an increasingly catchy chorus:

I went to the same high school as two of the members. Knowing this, some of the folks who welcomed me when I moved to that city decided to buy me a greatest hits compilation by them. Didn't do a thing for me :/ I can't even explain why it just didn't.

"What are you listening to?"

The same thing over and over again, it seems. My main Spotify playlist has 2000+ songs, yet I feel like only the same 100-200 songs play when I use shuffle. It also feels like songs I have recently listened to are more likely to queue up on shuffle, which is kinda counter-productive. Probably all in my head tho.
Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: osaka on 25 Mar 2015, 15:14
I have about 300 songs in my phone on shuffle all. The phone does catch some kind of pattern, which is probably an artifact of re-seeding the RNG every time I start the player. Thing is, every week it seems to choose like 50 songs and randomly loop through those 50.

While I love most of the musicians who played, there was one performance that stood out in a way that I think others will dig. Violinist/songwriter Joe Kye shows why he won "Outstanding New Artist" honors this year with the following 2 songs.

For some reason, The Pogues' rendition of that song is particularly poignant. 

"Heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives! You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well."  -- Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

And another pleasant ditty off the same record about a child serial-killer:

Title: Re: What are you listening to?

Murder Ballads is by a wide margin my least favourite album of his, but it has some fookin' tunes (and apparently a bodycount of 36).

Well, no one knows how many kills she racked-up during that fire.  It's not my favourite Nick Cave record, but it is a good one.  And the days where Blixa Bargeld were in the band were probably the best.
Title: Re: What are you listening to?
Post by: Thrillho on 15 May 2015, 02:56
Oh of course not, but I was basing it on Nick Cave's interviews around the subject.

It is a good one, but he only has one that I would consider close to being bad and that's Nocturama, curiously the last Blixa record if I'm not mistaken - and I disagree that his days in the band were the best. I actually think that since 2004, Cave has been in somewhat of a renaissance. As I said, he's never made a bad record, but his most recent clutch (Abattoir Blues/The Lyre Of Orpheus, Grinderman, Dig, Lazarus, Dig!!!, Grinderman 2, Push The Sky Away) is the most inspired he has ever been.

I do miss the presence of Blixa, and Mick Harvey actually, there is a slight lack of guitar-y-ness that he used to have a lot more of, but honestly? I think he's better than he's ever been.

That makes me sad and it's bloody beautiful.

Also it's a minor peeve but I love how they changed the pronunciation of "chandelier" or maybe it's just clearer because it's acapella. In the original it distracts me because it sounds like, "Chan-deh-leh-ee-er" to fit the melody. Very minor nitpick.

Right now I'm looping Aero Chord's "Prime Time" (https://soundcloud.com/aerochordmusic/prime-time-original-mix), basically until either I hate it or I swear inconditional love to it. Something about the whole set-up of the song feels just right for my current predicament of having to do a stupid presentation on the very basics of a Power 775 supercomputer in 4 days.

Actually, both tracks on the EP, but I'm playing Mortar much less than Prime Time.

By the way, there's one thing I find surprising whenever I listen to random japanese produced trip-hop and hip-hop, and it's just how calm and smooth everything is. Considering how they take basically every other "mainstream" music genre, one would expect the complete opposite.

So I just got to the Orange is the New Black episode where this is used as the end credits song, I had no idea. I just found it on a Spotify playlist and thought it was awesome. The exact same thing happened to me with Pulaski at Night. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oecHq2neweA) I heard it on a Spotify playlist and then like a week later started watching Season 2 and it was used in full as a montage song.

Anyway...

Major Lazer's "Lean On" is a very accessible piece for mainstream trap. Or it would be if MØ sang instead of screaming. It gets on my last nerve.

So I'm listening to this Canadian bunch do proper vocals for it instead. Too bad they only do half the song.

Three different versions of Cyber by sakuraburst - Original, Remix by Arthur & Medic and VIP mix by sakuraburst as well.

They sound nothing alike except for a key vocal track and some synth details, yet you can hear that they're all versions of the same thing.

What.

(As a fun note, Arthur & Medic tagged his remix of Cyber as "the difference between good music and great music is an inhuman amount of coffee")

So I bought a ticket to see this band the day before I came down with my ulcer. Going to a club show and not being able to drink? What's the point? I thought about giving my ticket away, but the show wasn't sold out so I couldn't actually sell it and I really just wanted to get out of the apartment. My one wish was for this band not to suck. They didn't suck. They're actually the best local band I've heard yet.



Also their lead singer is just about the most attractive man I've ever seen, but that's beside the point.

I've been listening to Elle King a lot these past couple days. None of her songs that I've heard yet have really good lyrics (I don't think) although there's this lassic hard-rock attitude to them. But the reason I've been listening to her is that her voice is amazing. You only ever hear one song of her's on the radio, but I really hope she isn't a one-hit wonder. There was one comment that called her 'this generation's Janis Joplin.'

Skills in Pills by Till Lindemann

Imagine an old rocker or metalhead writes an autobiography1. It'll be full of craziness. Till Lindemann made an album about himself, and half the songs are about his sex life. In other words, it's brilliant.

Also Praise Abort is the official song of my couple since my girlfriend and I are both utterly disgusted by children.

1 Ozzy doesn't count since most of the stuff in his autobiography was told to him since he doesn't remember, wasn't aware, or is currently braindead.

So these guys used to go to my college (back when the band was called Do it to Julia) and I know a couple of them (specifically the guitarist and drummer) in a 'friend of a friend' sort of way. That's not actually why I'm sharing this though, I'm sharing it because it might be the best Tiny Desk concert I've seen yet (a toy piano and a typewriter are used as instruments).

Panic! At The Disco's newest album, Death of a Bachelor.

I did not enjoy this much on the first couple listens other than one of the singles but letting it sit in my shuffles, I ended up really enjoying every song that came on. It's really fun listening to the whole album in one sitting now.

Still hate the childlike NaNaNaNa-style choir chanting in Victorious though. Almost ruins the rest of it for me and I think that's what tainted my first listen because I was so against the first second of that screeching and had to get over it to enjoy the rest.

A student of mine put that on in a lesson yesterday, and it neatly encapsulates why I listen to so little of NSP's music - to me it all just sounds kind of cheap and weak. There are some exceptions, like 'No Reason Boner,' and for some reason Starbomb seem to be immune to this, as their music packs a much heavier punch and fuller sound, but NSP to me always just sounds... kinda shittily produced.

And for the record, that is a song I really love in its original form and Danny's vocals on it are tremendous. I dunno, maybe crappy production is part of their gimmick. It's the same problem I have with most of The Lonely Island's material. They are parodying shitty rap songs by making shitty rap songs. But I don't want to listen to shitty rap songs. Something that's shitty on purpose is still shitty.

Imagine Dragons - Believer


Some of you may have seen my post down in RELATE about how I've been feeling recently. The beginning of this week in particular was awful for a couple of reasons, but I think that while I'm not exactly in the clear, I think I'm on the way out of it. I posted this version rather than the one without it because 2:50-3:00 did (ha!) hit me some. It makes me want to get out there and do *something* rather than just sit around all day in front of a screen. It certainly got me to text a friend and ask if they wanted to play badminton tomorrow (they did). Or possibly it just makes me want to hit things.

I just came back from by far the best concert experience I've ever had. Godspeed You! Black Emperor in Frankfurt.

Had to do a two hour car journey there, but it was so worth it. Their music is incredible on vinyl, but live it's a whole different experience. Seeing this group of 10 people who just seem to do their own thing, sliding over the guitar strings with screwdriver shafts, or the double bass player bowing a cymbal, but resulting in an incredible piece of music, in which even the (intentionally) unpleasant music is pleasant. And the projectionist (who is a full member of the band) did some incredible work. He has a huge number of short film tape loops, which he displays on four projectors, some of which only project on one half of the stage, enabling him to perform incredible visual effects, using just celluloid loops.

It was a fantastic experience, the only downside of which is that now I wouldn't want to miss another concert in my region.

This was my second attempt at seeing them, the first being when I visited Masterpiece, where unfortunately I left my ticket at home. I finally saw them!

Morituri said the tunes on the album he was listening to, which he gave as Symphonic Pink Floyd, were from the album Us and Them. Do you understand my confusion yet?

Steady Tiger!  :)

I think Mort either meant they played sections of the melody which makes up the song "Us and Them" (unlikely)
Or he just brain-farted "Wish you were here" (more likely)

Sorry about that... yes, I know you were referring to Pink Floyd's "momentary lapse of reason," but I thought it would be interesting/amusing if there were some analogous thing from the London Philharmonic, and fumbling the title of the Pink Floyd work gave that hypothetical a plausible title, so I went that direction thinking that others might also find it interesting or amusing or have the same kind of fun I did trying to imagine it.

Sigh. Once I have to explain a joke, it's not funny any more. 

Anyway, Symphonic Pink Floyd is most definitely not a joke, it's a very good interpretation of that music.  At least, IMO.  I know that "good" is one of those words that's only defined relative to the speaker.  But I do recommend it.

Just so you know, I didn't "fumble" the title. A Tragic Lapse of Judgment is just what I call that hacked-out waste of vinyl. That was when I stopped following Floyd, particularly after watching them sleepwalk through the supporting tour.

I got this in email a week or so ago with a note that said, "isn't that your couch?"  (it isn't, BTW....)


I understand that this song is about characters ("inklings," or cartoon characters released into the "real" world) from a horror-themed game.  I've never played that game, but damn.  If I had a Windows machine around here somewhere I might try it.  It's not worth my time to set one up for it, but every so often there's an interesting cultural artifact that only runs on Windows.

This is more or less exactly why people are scared of Artificial Intelligences, especially when they finally get that yes, some of us are working pretty hard to figure out how and why real emotions work in an AI context.  (EDIT:  in case it wasn't obvious, real emotions, while absolutely vital for a full understanding of human values and morality, are likely to be a lot easier than real sanity.  Sanity, I suppose, is at the end of a very long debugging process ... Or, as Alice here sings, "so many experiments, so many mistakes...." ) It's the sort of thing I might send the next reporter who asks that stupid question to look at.

Now they do live shows (I saw them in concert a couple of years back) they have an album on top of the billboard charts and now they were a guest on Conan muthafukin O'Brien?  Sucks they had to censor their song but just wow. Its probably the cleanest lyrical song they had from their album so I can understand why they chose it. But just wow. I feel like I am watching a friend realize their dream of becoming a rock star.  You can totally tell they're nervous but just wow.

I'm listening to high-fidelity original techno music, apparently composed by a hacker, that was delivered to our founder's place of work inside a Bluetooth Virus.  Which plays it on random metallic objects in the environment using radio-frequency induced resonators - which in this context means trash cans, venetian blinds, the pwm controller on the fridge's compressor motor, the computer fans, the metal window frame ....  it took us freakin forever to figure out where it was coming from, then longer to figure out that it was being caused by funtenna shenanigans on infected bluetooth devices. 

And it took longer than that to get a high-quality recording, because it's barely audible in the first place and all the audio equipment we could find at first filtered it out as low-level RF noise.  Which, to be fair, it basically is.

But, yeah, it's definitely real.  This "Hacking the Unicorn" track about an earlier Bluetooth exploit is actually pretty good, but I want to punch the guy who apparently wrote and performed it.  This mess will cost thousands to clean up, because there's no real remediation path on infected Bluetooth devices.

There's a radio station in Perth, Australia, with a Difficult Listening show every Sunday. You can even listen online if you don't happen to live in Perth.

https://rtrfm.com.au/shows/difficultlistening/

Quote
The second half of the 20th century saw significant innovation take place in the realm of avant-garde classical composition.
With composers such as John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen and Iannis Xenakis taking classical composition into realms that were previously unheard of, the foundations were laid for a tradition of experimental, exploratory and otherwise “difficult” musical forms to develop.
Difficult Listening takes in compositions from the legends of new music alongside works by lesser known composers and artists working in a range of styles that push the very barriers of sound creation and composition.
Including, but not limited to, styles such as modernism, early computer music, spectral music, noise, improvisation, drone and ambient music, Difficult Listening provides an important space for sounds that exist well outside of the realms of musical normality.
You can listen to live sets from the show on their Soundcloud (https://soundcloud.com/difficultlistening).

Talented artists are, yes, sometimes more than a bit difficult to deal with or maybe even a little handicapped in their "basic human being" skills.

There was a thing for a while where comics I liked kept decaying from 'brilliant' to 'weird' to 'pointless' and then they'd stop because the artist had been diagnosed with an acute need for inpatient mental care.  It happened several times. 

I have no idea what happened to David Sim.  AFAIK he didn't get better. Uncle Ghastly dropped comics and got into music (but I don't know what became of his band, sorry), Michaels changed art genres and became a novelist.  A couple of others eventually got better and got back into comics, even more brilliant than before but very very different in tone, theme, and context than their previous comics.  And IIRC, drastically slower production schedules.  Brilliant writing, gorgeous art, glacial production....

Lately I've gotten really into OK:KO (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmZLNO-_1nU&list=PLiw4qMFdAsyFDZz_UI4ATgPJMtvnBvfC0&index=1). A quartet of jazz majors from Sibelius Academy. A tenor saxophone strengthening your classical jazz piano trio. Not very cultivated, yet, but I don't give a damn. Their acoustic, rural jazz sounds works for me.

FYI: "Kesäranta"  = "Summer beach" in Finnish

This (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1kcnSiH0zI&list=PLiw4qMFdAsyFDZz_UI4ATgPJMtvnBvfC0&index=4) is the title track of their second album.

I've got a bunch of free CDs from the covers of magazines that I ripped and barely listened to. I don't know why I didn't give them more attention given that Wilco and Nick Cave are two of my all-time favourite artists and I found them through CDs like this.

I'm finding some real gems. Shit that I didn't know I had by artists I now like - I recently got into Sleater-Kinney because I'm on a feminist music kick and found I had another song by them on one of these comps, called 'Rollercoaster' and my God that song starts off good and then turns into a shapeshifting beast of a god of a leviathan of a thing two minutes in. I was listening to it while doing the dishes and when the tom-toms started to sound like the world ending I literally paused just to absorb it. For what it's worth, I basically never JUST listen to music. This was something.

I'm also on a big mid-60s thing lately because we watched The Boat That Rocked recently so I'm digging through a bunch of shit I have like that; two different songs by the Yardbirds, 'A Certain Girl' and 'Better Man Than I', both of which suggest to me that I should really listen to the Yardbirds because those two songs are fucking AWESOME.

I'll embed them sometime when I have more laptop power.

Was listening to spotify and I thought I hit shuffle for my favorites but I think I hit something else and it went to this song (which I've never heard before) and it sounds beautiful. The cover art seems questionable but it doesn't resemble the lyrics at all.

Polka is the throughline, but have some of the genre salad that is Slutty Spider Polka Pop.


Can anybody count just how many genres got blended into this? I'm getting 5.

Just picked up the new release from Amon Amarth, Berserker.  Pretty good stuff.   Shield Wall is probably my favorite track so far.

Ajja and Cosmosis live. Funny thing - separately they both make Goa trance with tempi upwards of 130 bpm, but together they make guitar-heavy slow trance with tempi around the 80-90 range.

Dub Step + Tchaikovsky + Folk Song + Chopin + Klezmer infused big band arrangement. It starts a bit rough but gets good.

I know, I mean I never would have imagined a song written by Blue Oyster Cult and remixed by the lead singer from System of a Down would be that awesome. AND ITS JUST SO CATCHY!!!

I stumbled across this Heilung concert by accident on Friday night, and I can't stop listening to it.
