Blank Dogs - Diana (The Herald) 320

Code: [Select]
http://www.Mediafire.com/?ygg4xsyi98y3kg7It's a one man band and an amazing EP. Has a sound similar to joy division but just a great lo-fi album. Check out the video if you are skeptical, it is short.

New copy of this 12" is super cheap straight from record label too, which is always nice.

Is a 2013 thread gonna get set up at some point? Or are we all waiting for the forthcoming Apolcaylse before deciding?

Okay, let's get some more christmasy claptrap in here. This is the first five volumes of Sufjan Stevens' xmas set, before he started getting all weird. These five came out as a 5 CD box set in 2006 or '07, I can't remember. Also came with a songbook and essays, which was sort of cool.

I've been wondering about that- what happened here?  I stumbled across this forum years ago and found that there were plenty of amazing contributors and contributions.  Nowadays I check on here once a month, if that, and it seems like it's barely there anymore.  Did everyone just get older, like me, and get jobs and families and all that boring stuff, or did something specifically happen to make this thread wither?

St. Christopher - Lioness



St. Christopher's approach lies on the slicker and less indie-oriented end of the Sarah Records roster, but the band's dedication to pure pop is no less appealing -- Lioness starts from dark, campy, almost-goth influences, adds a gleaming pop sheen, and winds up sounding something like Ian McCulloch's solo work.

Sun Ra - Jazz in Silhouette



Throughout their mid-to-late-'50s stay in Chicago, Sun Ra (piano) and his Arkestra established themselves as formidable purveyors of a new strain or sub-genre of jazz. Having evolved from elaborate reworkings of familiar standards, Jazz in Silhouette (1959) presents a collection of originals, building upon Ra's abilities as a consummate multi-tasker -- writing, arranging, scoring parts for his band, in addition to performing. He stretches the boundaries of the music to suit the Arkestra, simultaneously progressing his distinct sound. Seminal readings of the quick and complex "Saturn" and "Velvet" are offered with unmatchable dexterity and precision. The latter title comes off like a confused version of "Jeepers Creepers" as Hobart Dotson (trumpet) prominently displays his unquestionable tonality. "Ancient Aiethopia" is one of the more involved works, both in terms of length -- running over nine minutes -- and the Arkestra's capacity for Ra's compositions. "Blues at Midnight" is another expansive (nearly 12 minutes) outing that, by contrast, is for the soloists rather than full ensemble. John Gilmore (tenor sax), Ronnie Boykins (bass), Pat Patrick (baritone sax), and Marshall Allen (alto sax) all shine behind William Cochran's (drums) solid contributions. Equally significant is the running dialogue Ra maintains during other musicians' leads, directing the ebb and flow with an uncanny fusion of melody and rhythm. Undoubtedly, this is a factor in the freshness the material retains. It is also a prime example of Ra and company in a transitional phase, prior to their full-fledged explorations into the avant-garde.

Art Farmer - To Sweden With Love



The Art Farmer Quartet (consisting of flugelhornist Farmer, guitarist Jim Hall, bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Pete LaRoca), which was together from 1962-64 (after the demise of the Jazztet), was passing through Stockholm, Sweden at the time of this date and the musicians felt inspired to record a full album of traditional Swedish folk songs. Respect is paid to the often haunting melodies and Farmer sounds quite at home in this context, sometimes hinting a bit at Chet Baker. Fortunately, not all of the tunes are taken at a ballad pace, and once the themes are fully stated, Farmer and Hall have plenty of harmonically sophisticated solos. The band's cool and restrained style suits the music perfectly, turning it into jazz without losing its essence. Although a brief set (at under 33 minutes), every note counts on this successful outing.

Studio - West Coast



Studio are Swedish duo Dan Lissvik and Rasmus Hagg, and they play strung-out, “Balearic”-tinged, dance-friendly post-punk. Except that “play” probably isn’t the right word. I’m working on instinct rather than press releases here (Amazon don’t send you them), but I’d imagine that what the Swedes do is “assemble” their strung-out, “Balearic”-tinged, dance-friendly post-punk on a computer.

You could throw Studio in with the current crop of Europeans making dance waves, such as Justice, Simian Mobile Disco, or Digitalism, but you’d be doing the Swedes a disservice; post-punks in the club are far more interesting both sonically and formally than your typical punks in the club. “Out There” will be familiar to anyone who did manage to find Yearbook 1. A fifteen-minute instrumental opus that glides through reggae-tinged post-punk guitar shots, glistening keyboard runs, opaque sheets of ambience, and intricate maps of interlocking rhythmic elements, it sets a high bar for the 40 minutes of shimmering, reverbed, hypnotic, and fabricated (in the best possible way) postpunk / disco that follows.

Nero's Day at Disneyland - From Rotting Fantasylands



"From Rotting Fantasylands" starts off like a typical glitch album but quickly it is evident with the use of strange, reversed tribal vocals, haunting choir music, and the chaos of sound that Nero's Day at Disneyland are more than a simple run of the mill electronica band. Gurthermore, each song is distinctly unique from one another. (A problem I have noted within certain glitch bands is that the beeps and bloops, if the artist is not talented, offer an impression of redundancy). But the eclectic techniques Brock and Shon employ really take the genre to another level. "No Money Down, Low Monthly Payments" really encapsulates the album's name; it sounds like a tinkling dream place succumbing to screeching "technical difficulties," phantoms, eerie spooks that slink around merry-go-rounds and bring true horror to the haunted houses. Overall the album as a whole was a pleasure to listen to. My favorite tracks were "Stretched Linen over Contorted Bodies" (which features incredibly quick beats and intense progressions) and "Eulogy for Nick Galvas," which sounds like what would happen if a robot had a bad acid trip.

Hey guys i've been lurking this thread for a few years, i really hated that it only got to five pages in 2012. I'm going to try to make it a habit to upload a few albums here every month or so to not see this thread die.

this album got a lot of award nominations and press in 2012 because shortly before its release frank came out as bisexual, which isn't something you often see in the hip-hop music world. I like the album because it actually lives up to all of the talk surrounding it. It's more R&B than hip-hop anyway, and start to finish it's an incredible fuckin' album, whether you're into dudes, girls, or other.

I spooner'd the name, maybe it will take longer for MF to find and delete. Has anyone else noticed that they've really started closing down full album links?

It has gotten slow enough, that I think it is okay to let a few requests go. Nbd.  :meh:

Or you could, yknow, let the rules of the thread/Paul's judgement dictate what does and doesn't happen.

I'll get back to thinking about this seriously when I have a little more time.  Meanwhile, I would say that this thread has never been intended as a way to find stuff (there are whole sites - and associated lawsuits - dedicated to that), but as a way to offer stuff to others to intrigue or interest them.  It is deliberately kept low-key to avoid attracting attention, and this will not change because the forum as a whole is ultimately linked to the comic - the music is a side interest and cannot be allowed to risk compromising the forum.  How much interest there is in its contents depends on who's contributing at the time, and on who's looking.

Ducktails - The Flower Lane (2013)



Samples: The Flower Lane, Letter of Intent

The latest offering from Ducktails, the side project of Real Estate guitarist and generally chill dude Matt Mondanile.  Until now, Ducktails has been a lo-fi solo project, but The Flower Lane features some very slick production and a full backing band courtesy of Big Troubles along with lots of exciting guests, including Cults indie girl Madeline Follin, synth wizard Daniel Lopatin (of Oneohtrix Point Never and Ford & Lopatin) and his frequent collaborator Joel Ford, and Real Estate bud Martin Courtney.

The newfound pop songwriting chops that Mondanile displayed on his last album, 2011’s Ducktails III: Arcade Dynamics, are back in full force here.  Matty-boy seems more confident than ever, adding punchy piano and futuristic synths to the mix in addition to his usual effortlessly lovely guitar work and the ever-competent musicianship of his new backing band.  The Real Estate connection is still readily apparent, but these new flourishes and an occasional 80’s soft-rock vibe help distinguish the tunes of his newest effort from those of his day job with the Real Estate boys.

Some good shit.

Ducktails - The Flower Lane(320)
Code: [Select]
http://www.M/F.com/?vbuvk6wcwbvysu5Follow link below to purchase album. Highly enjoyable, as sad as it is to seem Matt leave the Woodsist label. Looks like they might even have some of the 1st pressing left. First 300 copies made in 180 gram (one time only at this quality) vinyl hand made, letter pressed cover and insert. Following copies will be pressed at 150.

Has any one else had M/F tell them to go buy the album instead lately? Many of the things on this page give this message to me. Is that a U.S. thing, an M/F crackdown thing, or a me thing?

I think it's that M/F is cracking down pretty hard, unfortunately.

I have typically noticed with the file hosting website that changing the name of the zip or rar files to something that cannot be positively identified as a specific album (no  words from the band or album names) then there are drastically fewer issues with these sites taking down content (i.e. ducktails - the flower lane became DTF)

That's what I do.  Of course, I can't check to see if my links are working myself.

Well, I uploaded Ducktails - The Flower Lane as "Sliatkcud - Eht Rewolf Enal" at first.  It got taken down, so I reupped it as "Waterfowlposteriors - A Hyacinth Road" and it got taken down again.  It appears that Mediafire is catching on to my tricks...

I think they also check checksums of known files; try rearranging or reencoding the contents to get a different checksum.

They can check checksums of files inside of .zip files or is it the .zip files themselves?

No idea.  I would expect whole files, as treating, say, encrypted and unencrypted zips differently would be less use to them.

Are there no other options than Mediafire that would be acceptable? They seem to catch everything pretty much instantly now.

I haven't used it for uploading stuff, but I'm sort of partial to Zippyshare recently.
