i like going through saltw's music threads and have discovered a bunch of awesome stuff from them, but they're all getting pretty old. post music you are listening to... : :pimp:  let's all expose each other to novel concepts to keep our brains from rotting... :naughty:

 

Let's start with the music!

 

 

 

 

i like this kind of diseased sounding v over the studio one, brian may's tone turns really fucking vicious and strange.

been getting back into analord. I like the sheer length/scope of the series, which is like 42 tracks + 11 bonus digital-only tracks or something. It kind of fools my brain into thinking there were other songs in the series that never actually existed. Basically he somehow evokes this feeling/false memories that are usually reserved for CHILDHOOD (hey remember that Bastille Day episode of rugrats)

 

 

I don't particularly like this track but it is cool because it was this mystery track BENEATH another track (bwoon dub). Like it was literally dubbed over with the other track and a part of carnival acid can be heard at this silent point in bwoon dub. It's like A WINDOW opens into the other song, it's a really bizarre effect

 

this song is pretty important wonder why it was left out of the series proper

 

 

also Not Distubing Mammoth #1 and 2 have good sound quality

I'm really kind of obsessed with Sun Kil Moon's new album. It's basically a death/middle age concept album, performed in a really cutting and matter of fact kind of way.

 

 

While we're on a Mark Kozelek kick, the Red House Painters were pretty rad.

 

 

I've also been getting kind of into The Smith's lately. I'm still not huge on Morrissey's voice or... overall personality, but damn were they a tight band.

 

 

I've been meaning to check out Yuck's second album. Everything I've heard from it was pretty good and a lot better than whatever their previous singer's new band is called.

but i did listen to daft punk's newest/RAM, was suprised at the semi-dumbtopic segments but played in HD sounds and self-seriously so that was kinda boring (basically moments of DKC water level or italo disco arpeggios without cool superfluous stuff). basically their nobsestalgia album... 

also listenin to 69 musicians? 24? 925? OH it's not even 12, it's 18 musecians - for the first time in my rude life cos i'm a Rube (rudbe, rude rube...) and i think i would totally listen to meticulous/perfectionist midi version of this music, i just can't WAIT to HEAR electronic guitar/distortion guitar - versions of some instruments with bird noises... who takes up on the task... 

 

if ya need actual songs than me blabbering... check out Footsteps in the Dark by Isley Brothers... and Robert Gordon's rendition of Torture...

the only good music i've found so far that has been releasd this year (besides the crosses album but that doesn't really count because 2/3 of it was released 2012 and 2013)  is the debut LP by a band called Nothing:

 

https://play.spotify...utm_medium=open

 

 

<-- this is my least favorite song from the album, but they made a video for it anyway?

Shoegaze, noise-rock, post-punk

 

Seeing them in May in Chicago.  Should be fun.

 

 

also this is not an exagerration - i haven't heard any good new albums this year so far before this was released a few weeks ago (although i guess to be fair I haven't listened to the new Nickel Creek album or the new Liars album so I don't know for sure).

lately i've been really interested in the old memphis devil rap scene. most of the songs have crazy fast flows that use a really aggressive triplet pattern that i like hearing in rap. a lot of cheap production on early 00s tracks, which means lots of synths that sound like straight up general midi and distorted vocals. it all makes for a very interesting and distinctive sound !

this is cool, it's an unreleased (except as a track on an 80s novelty compilation) 60s song, and i guess nobody knows who the singer actually is. it's said that a popular singer laid down the vocals hammered and marsha gee is just an alias. but where did the cover come from? i can't tell.

I really like that Big Ben Tribe song!

 

Nothing's "Dig" reminds me of some aspect of 90s pastiche rock that I haven't heard recycled before. I can't put my finger on it, though. I think I like it, but I suspect it's mining bands I would find distasteful now (dunno about 13-14 year old me, though).

 

Here are some tings i think you people might like.

 

crying in music

 

conlon nancarrow

 

su tissue of suburban lawns (circular new age minimalism)

 

great rambling version of "Staggolee" by Julius Lester, who was a radio show host and author, and maybe a bit of a tourist when it comes to folk and the blues, but this is great anyway:

he also has a great song called "Pine Bluff Freight Train Blues," which also has a long piece of narrative in it

 

the proto-plunderphonics of jon appleton

 

speaking of plunderphonics, check out harmon e. phraisyar.

 

http://podcasts.reso...mon-e-phraisyar

 

And possibly the greatest piece of narrative radio art ever recorded:

 

 

I've been listening to/enjoying 70s Mary Lou Williams (her Mary Records/Chiaroscuro stuff - check out Zoning), some of the more fusion-y Elvin Jones records (Elvin Jones Is on the Mountain, The Wide Point, The Prime Element), Herbie Nichols' Blue Note stuff, George Duke's mid-70s albums on MPS (Faces in Reflection, The Aura Will Prevail, Feel), Denny Zeitlin's Expansion, Jaki Byard's Freedom Together, Muhal Richard Abrams' Things to Come from Those Now Gone, a highlife record by Thomas Mapfuno & Blacks Unlimited, the Ed Kelly Ensemble, Dollar Brand (African Sketchbook, Good News from Africa, Capetown Fringe, Buddy Tate Meets Dollar Brand), and Mal Waldron (Plays the Blues, Black Glory, Up Popped the Devil - currently searching for The Call).

predictably

not sure how I feel yet

 

listen closely to lyrics on the title track

 

but yeah this is kind of a big deal because it's his first LP in 4 years as opposed to every 6 months when he started out

 

also real orchestration I think???

 

also I just noticed track 7 is like ultimate 8-bit Sunsoft music

it's cool that he's made his vocals a bigger part, i always liked the handful of sung bits over his discography!

 

 

Pigsty Hill Light Orchestra! really fun, doofy jazz folk ensemble thing

haha really? I don't mind them, I just wish he used them in a less SONGY way, like I said elsewhere, force the vocals onto the structure not force the structure onto the vocals

 

 

like if he could do the second half of this track with something somehow lyrical the world would explode

while i'm sure he could force the vocals onto his usual spaz programming and make it work, yeah, i do like that he's exploring this direction! adding more straightforward (in some respects...) segments to tracks feels like a pretty natural extension of his sound to me. think of ongyilkos vasarnap... not his vox but he's definitely done these sorts of structures before.
