Alright folks, here's a rising electronic duo from Fort Collins, CO.  Their called Pretty Lights.  I didnt want to upload the music because its free on their site.  Check it out, it will be the best free music you will ever lay your hands on. Assured.
http://www.prettylightsmusic.com/

Download the first two albums, Filling Up The City Skies Disk One and Disk Two.

The first one is good, the Taking Up Your Precious Time, but nothing comparable to the new albums by Derek Smith, the producer for Pretty Lights.  Please, everyone, if you like to party, listen to electronic music, party music, whatever it might be, I urge you to check out this rising artist.  You'll thank me later.   :-)

The threads have aligned and conjoined to become one sickening frankenstein-esque monstrosity that will one day bring about our very destruction - MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Awesome.


Here's a face-rockingly rifftastic album from 1993.  

Quicksand - "Slip"



Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/download.php?lzjjyjemclk
Pretty much a post-hardcore masterpiece.  Guys from various NYC hardcore bands, led by Walter Schreifels (previously of Gorrilla Biscuits, went on to form Rival Schools), playing a rhythmic blend of alt-metal and punk, not a world away from Helmet's "Meantime"-era material.  It took a few listens for this to really sink in for me, but it's worth it - it's easy to see why it's considered a classic; the songwriting is top-notch, the riffs and vocal melodies are catchy, and it's gritty and unrelenting throughout.  The album is incredibly influential, and it's influence can be heard in the vast majority of rock music that's come along since.  In particular, the nu-metal movement seems to have been massively influenced by the lumbering metallic riffs that Quicksand and their peers dealt in.  However, blaming nu-metal on Quicksand is like blaming NWA for Soulja Boy.  There's a very slight sonic similarity, but inevitably the copyists entirely missed the point.  Probably realising they'd never top "Slip", Quicksand released a good, but inferior, followup in the form of "Manic Compression" two years later, and promptly split up.  Reunions gave rise to a tour and a failed studio session before a final breakup in 1998.

N.B. Download also contains the Japanese bonus track, a cover of The Smiths' "How Soon Is Now?"

Yeasayer - All Hour Cymbals


Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/?iylcczmtsfx
It took me a couple listens to get into it, but this has been on regular rotation since. Pick this up, its good.

Here's allmusic's opinion
Quote
The music of Brooklyn's Yeasayer is an eclectic, genre-bending journey into pop, rock, Middle Eastern and African musics, folk, and dub. Vocalist/keyboardist Chris Keating and vocalist/guitarist Anand Wilder were both raised in Baltimore, where they honed their vocal skills in a barbershop quartet and played in a high-school band, Sic Transit, before leaving town to attend different colleges. Years later, the two relocated to New York and began shaping the project that would soon become Yeasayer. Wilder's cousin, Ira Wolf Tuton, joined as the group's bassist, and drummer Luke Fasano was the last member to climb aboard in May 2006. The band set to work on recording its debut album, All Hour Cymbals, which was unveiled to much critical acclaim (not to mention a healthy blogosphere buzz) in October 2007. International tour dates followed, during which the band honed its blend of live instrumentation and prerecorded samples.

great post albatron, Yeasayer rocks. Just out of curiosity, did anyone check out Pretty Lights?  Please do if not, I highly recommend it.  Also I know your not supposed to request but I'm trying to find a 12" by Cyne called Movements and also African Elephants, another Cyne 12".  If someone has some extra time and could fetch or find both those for me that'd be solid.  :mrgreen:

Does anybody remember the Westside of the Moon mixtape I posted a few pages back?

Well now Dert (aka Dert Floyd) has a new mixtape out. However instead of cutting up Pink Floyd tunes, this time he's tackling the music of Bjork.

Dert - Talk Strange



Just like Westside, Dert is giving this one away for free.

my band toured the US in May, and we played with a lovely band from Olympia called "Lake".
This is their debut, and I believe their next record will be out on K recs.

this was my summer soundtrack, and pairs well with Sandro Perri's "Tiny Mirrors".
Enjoy.

ps. also, thank you for showing me this BB katiejoy. i'm pretty excited to share muzaks with the folks here. yesssssss sir.

Here are two EPs apiece from my two favourite bands of the moment.

I already uploaded Algernon Cadwallader's full-length album a few pages back. Here are a demo they released in 2006 and a fresh, new 7" called Hot Green.

http://www.mediaf!re.com/?elyq3mnmymz

If you like Algernon, it's likely you will enjoy Look Mexico. They aren't as energetic, but they have just as much fun. In this link are 2005's Crucial EP and last year's Gasp Asp.

No prob. I would probably say that Look Mexico is more similar to Colossal, though. Algernon Cadwallader is more like the carefully considered guitar arrangements of American Football and the wonderfully messy energy of Cap'n Jazz got into a high-speed head-on collision.

Fu Manchu - California Crossing


Quote
Anytime a band tinkers with its core sound, inevitably fans will be won and lost. California Crossing has a strong up side; Fu Manchu's distinctive fuzzy guitar sound has been refined into polished nuggets served fresh from the land of palm trees and endless summers. Its still hard rock, but this is a smoother machine that eases off the gas to feature breezing So-Cal hooks on "Thinkin' Out Loud," "Wiz Kid," "Mongoose," "Squash That Fly," and "Hang On." Wisely conjuring '70s pop sensibilities more closely resembling Cheap Trick than oft-compared Sabbath might realistically break Fu Manchu into radio markets and attract larger audiences without mosh-pits. However, there is a down side that may lose the interest of diehards still hell-bent on 1996's sludgy classic In Search Of or expecting King of the Road II. Scott Hill's reluctant vocals are usually nestled in amplified feedback and heavy drumming, but on this outing they are lifted to the surface exposing moments of range limitations with occasionally vague lyrics. Also, Brant Bjork's drums sound muted in the overall mix; only on "Ampn" and the juicy ending instrumental "The Wastoid" does he really gallop. Amicably leaving the Chu after this recording to pursue solo endeavors, Bjork was replaced by Scott Reeder (of Orange County's Smile) who's technical drumming suits CC's sound better. Lastly, Mammoth's delays and promotional copy proliferation several months prior to the official release hardly fueled precious momentum. Despite waves of bad timing for this album, these songs nevertheless strengthen Fu Manchu's status as a premier live band while showing future promise as musicians.

Burning Airlines - "Identikit"



Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/download.php?zmm2mziymmo
EDIT:  Apparently the track "The Surgeon's House" might be a bit fooked (Thanks for the heads-up, Bowers).  Here's a link to just that song:
Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/download.php?oknzgnme0au
Here's a fine blend of post-hardcore and indie-rock, featuring J. Robbins (formery of Jawbox).  There's a huge variety of sounds on this album, strange beats and changing tempos, elaborate and occasionally funk-influenced basslines, and varying levels of guitar abuse, from clean picked parts, through chunky riffs, to full on coruscating noise.  Robbins' vocals are melodic and distinctive, and his lyrics thoughtful and individual.  This should especially to fans of later Fugazi, Braid, Jawbox, and that Shiner album that was posted a few pages back, but generally, there's something here for anyone who's into inventive rock music.

fuck yes I love that burning airlines album.

One complaint though, the track 'The Surgeons House' freaks out at about three quarters of the way through and goes a bit mental and then skips onto the next track.
Any chance of a re-up of that track? I was really enjoying it until my speakers went crazy.

I don't feel like digging up a quote.  Basically, think about what would happen if a subwoofer and a belly dancer had kids.  Those kids would be these songs.  Some dance music makes your head bob, some makes your feet move ... this stuff makes your torso shudder and twist, and listening to it essentially raises your sex appeal in and of itself.

I can't remember if Clintaga (who introduced me to Beats Antique) upped their more recent album "Collide" on this thread or not ... I can't find it in any case, so I'm still looking for it.  Either way, if you've heard "Collide," this album is a bit less glitched out and the belly-dance vibe is a thicker.

Allright, Since Onewheel had to go and call me out like that, I guess I can post this frickin' sickhouse album that I have literally been meaning to upload for about 2 months. OneWheel's description of Beats Antique is pretty good, but this album is a lot more glitchy/Scratchy, than the other one, however, the strong Classical Indian instruments are still really integral to HOW FRICKIN' SWEET this record is.

Also, when you go to see them live, the girl on the cover of the CD is dancing next to the short asian Nerdy-tech DJ on Stage. It was like watching a sexy lava lamp, her movements were so fluid. The only things he said, in between driving the crowd nuts, was just "How you doin' PHILLY!? You Have FUN! HAVE FUN! DANCE AND HAVE FUN!"

Please Enjoy!

P.S. You really need to listen to pretty lights. When the first song I hear is just Baby Huey ultramixed into a Dance for days remix, you gotta give them some love.

Here are two EPs apiece from my two favourite bands of the moment.

I already uploaded Algernon Cadwallader's full-length album a few pages back. Here are a demo they released in 2006 and a fresh, new 7" called Hot Green.

When I glanced at the art for this I thought it said "A Large Canadian Fellow."

I was a bit disappointed.

Couldn't find many reviews of it but trust me most of this is definitely worth your time.

from Ghostly International (The Label)
Quote
Back in 2003, Matthew Dear was a little-known DJ, but a handful of singles on an unkown label changed all that. EP1 and EP2 were some of the first waves of “microhouse” to emerge from American shores and their impact on DJs and producers is truly palpable. One of the true classics of this period, Dog Days was the first single from his Leave Luck To Heaven album and features a killer remix by Perlon’s Pantytec. Spectral Sound presents a compilation of the singles that started it all. The highly influential Irreparably Dented, Stealing Moves, EP1, EP2, Dog Days and Anger Management/Future Never Again are all accounted for here. In celebration, we have released a limited re-press of these 12”s but none of these singles have been released digitally before. Beginning Of The End: The Spectral Sound Singles, which will carry all 19 tracks along with 2 never before released tracks from the EP1/EP2 sessions.

Different sounding for Fennesz, darker, good though.

12" one-sided clear vinyl with an etching by Savage Pencil. Table of the Elements continues to celebrate its 15th anniversary with the ninth installment in its Guitar Series Vols. 3 & 4. It’s a 12xLP romp of deviant fretnoise by some of experimental music’s most prominent players, including Christian

Table of the Elements say: "Simply put, Christian Fennesz is a pioneer. As much as any artist, he is responsible for establishing the laptop computer as both a compositional tool and concert instrument. Subsuming electro-acoustic strategies into a bedrock of pop, he terraforms vast new worlds of sound, within which both AMM and the Beach Boys can cozily coexist. His Guitar Series contribution, June, is a suitably lush transformation, as electric guitars flow into deep streams of sound."



Built To Spill - Ultimate Alternative Wavers (1993) [192 (VBR)]

1st Built To Spill album.

Quote
What a mess -- from all the sloppy guitar ramblings to the constant rhythm changes assuming that the rest of the band was barely aware of Doug Martsch's tempo swings, Ultimate Alternative Wavers is all over the place. But somehow, Built to Spill bounce off each other by using this technique of improvising what direction the sound is going to next. And with this being their first record, it's almost as if they're taking a cue from the likes of early Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr. when it comes to their more experimental influences. But what keeps it together are Marsch's soulful but bleak vocals, which make lyrics like "nowhere, nothing, f*ck-up" seem like a pleasant singalong.

Hot Water Music - "Caution"



Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/download.php?2gyjtynnz3m
Quote from: All Music Guide
Picking up where A Flight and a Crash left off, Hot Water Music is all about delivering tight and melodic hardcore on Caution. With even less vocal interplay between singers, the band further refines its music and allows its songs to shimmer with more production gloss. This only helps the group, which has an incredibly tight sound but hasn't always had the resources to make sure it sounded right. Here you can hear every little guitar flourish and snare snap nicely, which reveals the wealth of excellent melodies and lyrics the band is capable of. Every song hits the ground running, offering bountiful amounts of anthemic choruses and ringing guitars, while the music alternates between flattening listeners with a sonic barrage ("It's All Related") and lightheartedly bringing them along for the ride ("Not for Anyone"). Most importantly, the bandmembers display variety that doesn't intrude on their songwriting style but instead complements their thuggish attitude and aggressive delivery. They manage this by taking the general structure (i.e., fast tempos, singalong choruses, dynamic chord changes) and tweaking it so that certain songs are guitar-heavy romps while others allow the bass to carry the vocals on a bouncing beat. They've always hinted at this sort of songwriting strength, but they just needed the right people behind the boards to bring it out of them. By offering stronger melodies than last time but generally following the same pattern, Caution is the strongest album from the band since Fuel for the Hate Game.

I should point out that "melodic hardcore" is a bit misleading.  This is more post-hardcore mixed with rock and a little punk.  It's also a fucking flawless album, one of my favourites, not a single bad song on it.

FUCK YEAH. Matthew Dear is the man.  And I'm glad all you guys enjoyed Pretty Lights, they make the dankest music ever.  As for Beats Antique, I started listening to them when Bassnectar's Heads Up was released with the Roustabout remix.  That stuff is sick.  Check them out.

I'm uploading an album called Cardboard Wings by a folky band called Birdlips.  This is the single most perfect album to which I have ever listened.  I hope someone else enjoys it as much as I do.
