The point of these threads is to encourage exploration, by listening to and discussing albums we've not heard before. Typically, this is done by making a chart of albums, then listening to and discussing one album from the chart each day.

Hey! Daily has been a little weird these past few weeks with overall participation being pretty (very) low. A lot of out of thread talk has occured and some of us still wish to keep these threads going, but some minor changes will have to be made in order to encourage thread liveliness. Here's a short list of suggestions that some of us came up with:-the revival of calendars to encourage daily reviews/discussion (ill probably be the only one doing this but anyone is welcome to join me)-Bringing back and organizing plug nights (or a variation thereof)-A new listenalong schedule-thread creation being reduced to weekly threads, made at the beginning of each weekIf anyone else has any other suggestions or thoughts on the matter please share! Otherwise these will be rolled out within the coming weeksalso join our discord if you haven't! Where we most likely will be when thread is dead + off topic discussion w/big name trips like caviarrrhttps://discord.gg/B6FujX

>>85193638beach house is a really good entryway into duster + slowdive + lush since its really palatable. im gonna pinch split off your list though, since ive not heard that release yet
>>85193723Looking for recs.
Ata Kak - Obaa Sima 6.6/10Was slightly disappointed with this. Any of the tracks like the 1st are fantastic, any that are like the 2nd I like less (the 2nd is just too fucking unintentionally silly and repetitive). Still really like it ESPECIALLY the songs I like (Title track is 10/10).Professor Rhythm - Rhythm 7.8/10I love the sound of this album. The synth sounds are absolutely some of my favorite ever. That said, there is quite a bit of repetition to this album, but I personally don't mind it. I can, however, seeing someone getting irritated at both the synth sounds and repetition so if you don't like synths that sound like their from a late 90's/ early 00's video game, than feel free to avoid this album.Kraftwerk - Trans Europe Express 8.3/10This was kind of a re listen, but I had basically forgotten the entire last chunk of the album so I felt it was acceptable to count this in the chart. It's good. I personally prefer the pretty songs like Europe Endless and Franz Schubert as well as fun and 'dancey' Showroom Dummies to the cuts from Trans Europe Express to Azburg. I like them in context of the album but, their only okay without that context imho.Kate Bush - The Dreaming 8.7/10Fucking fantastic. All the weird but still fun production, the accents, the abstract lyrics, I love it all. My biggest complaint, the screaming on the end track was already sort of annoying when it started, but by the end it was almost aggravating.
>>85193824sure! good chart otherwise, very similar to my shoegaze taste so I hope you atleast like some of these :)https://rateyourmusic.com/release/comp/helvetia/gladness-2001-2006/https://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/%E7%8E%8B%E8%8F%B2/%E6%B5%AE%E8%BA%81__fuzao_/https://rateyourmusic.com/release/ep/oeil/urban-twilight/https://rateyourmusic.com/release/ep/%E5%AE%87%E5%AE%99%E3%83%8D%E3%82%B3%E5%AD%90%E3%81%A8%E3%83%A9%E3%83%96%E3%83%AA%E3%83%BC%E3%82%B5%E3%83%9E%E3%83%BC%E3%81%A1%E3%82%83%E3%82%93/%E6%97%A5%E3%80%85%E3%81%AE%E3%81%82%E3%82%8F-ep-hibi-no-awa-ep/https://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/pasteboard/glitter/https://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/felt/ignite-the-seven-cannons/(have you not checked out Galaxie 500 - Today yet either?

>>85193760Thanks for the compliment! Any recs?
Helping my dad move this week I dug this out of his CD collection comprised of mostly Christian folk and rock. I listened to a lot of albums he used to play all the time when I was a kid, bringing back major nostalgia, but this folk album stood out to me as being the most beautiful.Although it's all instrumental, I recommend it for fans of folk or acoustic guitar. If you're a fan of Nick Drake of John Fahey you may enjoy it.
>>85194433thanks!>>85194646will check out thanks anon
man i’m good
im gonna give this a go, r8 my first chart
hey what's up.currently fucking around in gimp so i can put my charts together and get one big chart going.would definitely be down for listenalongs and other forms of social listening. i think discourse around shared content is important.meanwhile i'm trudging through these backlogs whimsically, knocking out a record here or there. since getting rid of spotify i've felt like i can control my listening, which is great. streaming honestly was not for me.
>>85198860al-90 and eccojams r sick
also bringing these posts back so Good Morning Daily! What's everyone listening to today?Got my Tim Buckley pictures, got my coffee, my jazz playing: it's go time :)Also want to talk about Wildflower by the Avalanches, I think I had that at a 1 star a while back but I seriously cannot stop listening to it these past few days. Shout out to them for playing it off as another shitty plunderphonics album but secretly making a solidly great Neo-Psych sound collage one instead. If I Was a Folkstar -> The Noisy Eater has quickly become one of my favorite 3 song runs>>85198860Surgeon, Ferraro, Eccojams all good :)>>85200472>would definitely be down for listenalongs and other forms of social listeningI'll be posting the general listenalong and ones I'm involved with on Monday, maybe we can get the other trips with listenalongs to post theirs as well with some new picks>streaming honestly was not for me.yeah honestly fuck spotify, streaming has just saturated music listening for me. Thinking about finally pulling the plug since I got a new phone with x60 the amount of space, would just listen to the same 10 albums on repeat.
also peep sobbing and I's duo-chart for January ig
i am a technologically incompetent foolso i'll just post my 80s backlog for now. focus is post-punk and industrial.>The Birthday Party - Junkyardvery good songwriting, but slower-paced than Prayers on Fire; it's more assured in its ideas and doesn't rush. it's clear they're gaining in sophistication, especially lyrically, where the storytelling shines.probably the only reason i didn't like this as much as prayers was the muddy production, which felt similar to what the bad seeds did on tender prey. i don't know why nick cave does this sometimes, honestly: he'll have an album that sounds immaculate, followed immediately by one that's the opposite.grade: B+>Nurse With Wound - Spiral Insanajust gonna post my pretentious journal entry on this:'the way this seems to connect disparate sonic landscapes or "settings" is remarkable. there's an amazing continuity here, a common thread running through the many different sounds. the album manages to perform a roughly constant function while exploring a huge variety of forms, as if its operating principle were a sort of implicit memory, a deja vu. listening i get the sickly feeling that i've been here before.'grade: B+>The Cure - Pornographyhonestly my first listen. feels like one of those records i need to let grow, but i'm not sure if i'll have the time or the motivation in the next however many months. will probably love it someday

>>85194058Nice Humbert Humbert>>85200829great to see duos back, someone do one with me
>>85193638Supercar - FuturamaClams - clamsEcstasy of st. Theresa - sussurateShould - feed like fishesYolz in the sky - s/t>>85200829Steve hiett! - Theres a nice piece on fond/sound in regards to that particular album (apparently a photog and album pic by him). Also reminded to listen to nissenenmondai (maybe once long ago listened to mirror girl? Who knows)Listened to yest:>Bambara - shadow on everythingListened as a rec from a friend. The voice saunters through dark punk/countr atmosphere (elongated slide guitar sounds provide the twang, insistent yet basic rhythm section) - more narrative than poetry, there’s an affected drawl (in the sense of slurring and drawing words). I can see why friend says sounds like shady cowboy telling tall tales.Unfortunately not for me - the affectation of the delivery feels more put on than earnest (I enjoy insincerity but only when it’s earnest of it makes sense) - meaning that the stretching and sneering attitude of it comes across as toothless - it’s not always terrible (track 1 terrible). Maybe been fine I think if turned up the gain on vox (artificial unclean), or brought the distorted guitar scribbling forward in the mix? The instrumentation not terrible, I’m just unmoved. Do the parts (vox, inst, lyrics) make sense together? Yes - but perhaps too much sense - it feels like a neat package of the idea of what one might imagine as the modern vagabond - which again doesn’t speak to me. I’m having a hard time explaining why.
I wish you guys would post more direct links to music so I could lazily explore tracks while I'm working
>AL-90 - Code915913some of the best lo-fi house i've heard. some beautiful samples and beats on here that hypnotise you from start to finish.7>Chuck Person - Chuck Person's Eccojams vol.1this one was actually quality. been getting into vaporwave recently and this is some of the best ive heard. it does dreamy and ethereal better than cocteau twins8>Trim- 1-800 Dinosaur Presents Trim the production on some of the tracks are incredible but its pretty much the only interesting thing on here. trimanosaurus' flow and lyrics are fairly standard and some tracks are just uninteresting but the production really makes this album a decent one5
>>85201023>WEEK 5>>Mo Boma - Myths of the Near Future (1994)nice :) still need to post my thoughts for last week but I'll get on this soon>so hey how does your rating system workssorry for the confusion! my 1*'s are for things I simply didn't like and nothing to do with revisiting. My 1 star to Wildflower came from anticipation from SiLY but quickly writing it off as an anco copy cat (somehow felt this at the time?). I always liked some tracks but for some reason let it play out all the way the other day and I can't deny how danceable and fun it is. >I could just play something when taking a walk or drivingI think this is the only upside to streaming and might be the only reason I keep my subscription, no way to listen to 80's jangle pop on aesthetic night car drives otherwise >>85201607I'll look more into Steve Hiett and his photography once I get to it, probably not the best Winter album but I'm still very excited for it. Very interesting life from what I've briefly read. >>85201635we are album slaves but I will try to post more tracks for you anon :)

>>85202403yeah rym is https://rateyourmusic.com/~heavy_pop
>>85202586i havent used it in a while, i still need to log a lot of stuff
Nobuko Hori - Xtoyourmilkyhair I can't really talk much about this beyond a bunch of flashing sounds and glitches, I liked some songs but the thing can really get on your nerves. The more ambient, mechanical songs towards the end is where this really grabbed my attention, but beyond that I liked very little about this. Not at all bad but certainly not great.4/10Daisuke Tobari - Drumit's no secret that Tobari has quickly become one of my favorite artists of all time; such a beautiful human being with an incredible range of sounds, emotions, and tones in his music. Drum is NO exception to his ability as an artist, coming from almost a decade out from Guitar you can really tell how much better he got as a guitar player. Hence Drum is more focused on textures through his instruments and vocals, with less field recordings and strange noises. The vocal delivery is these long, vibrant bellows that echo around Tobari's beautiful guitar plucks that just send my heart into a million places. These two elements play so well into one another and make for such complimentary tones, making his songs more moving, spacial, and lyrical in a sense. Maybe my Tobari fanboy is showing but I seriously loved this and I will have to sacrifice a 7 elsewhere just to include this, cannot begin to describe my love for him. 7/10
>>85203164>The Motifs - Cross Pathsthe more twee I listen to the more I think that I think "wow this genre has so much to offer, my little airport, cardigans, beat happening... such variety in sound!". Then I listen to any twee VA comp or any other British twee artist and I realize unique twee is actually incredibly rare, and the genre really is for broke college students with no song writing ability. But with the Motifs I am convinced I am forever proven wrong, that this sound and endearing attitude can be unique and different. Although twee might be a copy paste genre, Cross Paths is a collection of tunes that take this format and do unspeakable things to it. Levels of instruments and lo-fi vocals and humms, everything is masked in this quiet yet incredibly expressive blanket of sound. One day I'll write an essay on melancholy in twee, or create a list of "unconventional twee", but for now I will probably just direct people to the Motifs.6(7?)/10
>>85203164Good tobari thoughts - curious why you prefer guitar over drum? Also fav track from drum?One of my fav parts about tobari throughout is how well he layers via 4 track recorder - you can delineate the various recording strands as well as drink them in as gestalt. Well that and the sweet sweet nylon guitar work.Going through Arrington de dionsyo latest album - whooh boy this is great (but listening through a work headset)
>graham lambkin and jason lescalleet - air supplythe makers of the breadwinner crank out another amazing experience. for every haystack of mediocre eai releases one will find several gems. the thing about this genre, and what i think will always keep me coming back to it, is the effect it has one me when it's really, really good. i was already kind of tearing up by the second track, and when that track ended, the suddenness and beauty of it, it made me cry. the drones, the pops, the blasts of shuddering noise. i felt like i was dying.8
>>85203801rec: the trashOl Dirty Bastard - Return to the 36 ChambersACO - Irony

>>85203874how can you say its trash (whilst it has danny brown on it) and then recommend ODB, danny brown is literally the upgraded odb
>>85203906its not the right danny brown and its also really basic overallalso danny brown and odb sound nothing alike aside from having a funnee voice

What do you think about Abu Lahab ?
also imma need a rec from caviar, triangle and ethy, also one from nat but i guess I'll let em know on rym or the discord
>>85203569>why you prefer guitar over drum?I plan to write a full fledged review of Guitar but for now it really boils down to the unique and mysterious qualities of Guitar versus the more fully fleshed out folk sound of Drum. Albeit Drum is still an amazing album>favorite songtrack 5, it reminds me a lot of that Sandy Bull track that’s just a banjo jam but it’s really ambient and cozy and I love his deep vocals throughout the tune, just super lovely :)>>85203653niccceeeuuu>>85203801have you ever listened to Milo?otherwise i think you would really like Nick Drake Bryter Layter >>85206547still upset about that Tobari score (may or may not forgive you for this one)
>>85207555>still upset about that Tobari score (may or may not forgive you for this one)It really surprised me tho, I mean after listening to noir et blanc and seeing tobari tagged as avant-folk I thought it would win easily. anyway your review is gonna make me listen to drum and since a 2 for me means it is not discarded i might listen to guitar again
excited to see the other duo chartsmuch talk in the cord about thisnote that i am open to do two concurrently owo
This is pretty good thanks to whoever recced it to me on discord, its engaging and never lingers on ideas too long which I´m a big fan of here as it made me interested throughout and looking forward to whatever is next. Wouldn't call the music itself memorable for the most part but I do find it stylistically memorable, a pretty unique take on third stream with a lot of minimalism and modern classical influences while at the same time having a drummer that keeps up very much rock grooves through most the tracks to a nice contrast. I would say it definitely lacks an emotional punch coming off a bit mechanical and dry but not too near an obnoxious point. Recommended to anyone into the genre you´ll probably at least like it.
>>85207555Excited for full blown review - and def agree those are strong points about guitar - has a bit more whimsy as well whereas drum feels more meditative. Curious how you’ll feel about till the end - I think initially guitar was my least favorite because I listened to till the end first and because of the closeness in the tracks of each, so:1) felt not as fresh2) till had my fav track between two (Now not so sure about where each album stands per same - they feed differently)And yeah that’s a goodie - I think only tobari track a friend who enjoys music likes from him (or at least responded to). I really love track 4 (the guitar trills, and the almost zither like quality in lead phrase of around 2:00~ for instance). I hope he comes back in some capacity (and if not, that’s fine - as long as he’s happy)
>>85208764Glad u enjoyed - bum bum by them quite a bit different whereas live from planet earth I think acts as a precursor to the sound from vula FYI

>Graham Lambkin and Jason Lescalleet - Air SupplyDecided to randomly read Lovecraft while reading this and the two could not have fit perfectly. The second the first drone piece stopped and the corrupt, darker soundscapes came crashing in was the moment in Dagon where the narrator finds himself in a lagoon of dead fish and sludge and the scenery and sound change could not have fit better. Aside from this weird personal experience with the record the middle sections of tape play were fairly good, but that last drone is where this shines. Sparking, light, distant; could not have been a more beautiful closer. Like you're inside an air duct in a massive theater with far off instruments and human activity vibrating around you. Very nice :)5/10
hello friends, relatively new to /daily/ although I lurk here quite a bit. This is my first post as a tripfag. Here's my chart, it gives a pretty good overview of what I enjoy the most. Lately I have been trying to branch out and listen to more obscure albums from my favourite genres. I've been listening to a lot of folk and free jazz over the last few months. I'm very excited to start posting here! I've found a lot of albums I really enjoy from these threads.
>>85214187>another jazzy boy approaches finally :0so many good picks here! Buckley/Drake/Exuma + solid jazz picks, you got a rym?
>>85214321Thanks! My RYM is https://rateyourmusic.com/~Zonark000I don't use it very much, but I've been meaning to start rating more stuff and beef out my profile a tad more.
>>85210832nope, would try more though
https://rateyourmusic.com/release/ep/betelmire/606_mph/nice little bedroom recorded twee gem
>>85214187excited for thoughts on dave bixby and clouddead!any reason you did a top 40 over a college? o3o
>>85214187Pretty good taste my dude
good morning /daily/, my midi controller just got delivered so im probably gonna spend the rest of the day messing around with that and making shite tunes.>Nmesh and telepath - ロストエデンへのパスfairly standard, well done vaporwave. not the most interesting release in the genre but i dont have too many complaints about it other than it overstays its welcome. nice, dreamy soundscapes that are pleasant in the background, but it doesnt do too much outside of that.5>Drexciya - Deep Sea Dwellerwith their first release drexciya let you know what theyre all about. the first side of this is more club oriented with the stronger kick drums and the classic drexciya electro twist. the second side is less in-your-face but just as good, the synths on depressurization are great.7>James Ferraro - Far Side Virtualthis album is more of an artistic statement than anything. it manages to capture vaporwave's critiques of modern culture whilst mostly using different techniques and sounds to do it. musically its lacking somewhat but its definitely an interesting listen.7
good morning daily. on the queue for today are mingus's let my children hear music, and richard & linda thompson's i want to see the bright lights. excited to see what i think.besides my backlog charts i've been trying to get back into post-hardcore and it's been going OK. listened to some lisabo, and right now i'm listening to envy.lately i've felt a bit like i've moved beyond emo and whatnot, and towards music that could generally be regarded as more spiritual. kinda corresponds to a shift i've been having in outlook generally.
good morning dailywho want duck
>>85214187>that fahey #1 and not sausalitoanyway, enjoy your stay
what is this album
why shoegaze so bad
>>85219584jimo rourke live in japan>>85220717its not
>>85215123oooh looks nice, ty :)>>85218097nice ferraro onions, have you listened to his Primavera performance yet? I felt it's his most fleshed out sound while staying true to the early 2010's vaporwave mentality.>>85218390>on the queue for today are mingus's let my children hear musicexcite! can't wait to hear your thoughts>>85219211me gib duck
been nearly 6 months or so since i've checked on a daily thread. while i didn't like some of the rampant elitism present in these threads, the sense of community participation was pretty wholesome. seeing a lot of new trips and couple of old ones as well. anyone know what happened to schumacher and mark and?
>>85201190just curious, are you indian?
>>85221576schumacher is around here somewhere but it's been a while since Mark And posted (sadly)
bump! what’s daily listening to today?
>>85215825Not really any reason I did a top 40 over collage. I guess it just looks better in my opinion.Here are some quick thoughts on Bixby and Cloudddead>Dave Bixby - Ode to QuetzacoatlI've always loved folk, but this was my first introduction to the Xian Folk subgenre. I love the psychedelic overtones, and the Christian themes add an extra level of emotional depth. The songs manage to sound soul-crushingly depressing, while happy and hopeful at the same time. I guess that kind of matches well with Bixby's mindset would have been at the time as he was in a cult. Fantastic album with a super interesting backstory to it.Clouddead - s/tVery surreal, but absolutely ethereal. Listening to it sounds like drifting from one dream to the next. The many transitions within the tracks ensures that they never linger on one musical idea for too long. It's addicting and their music gets stuck inside my head very frequently.
>>85222434pic related, it's been a while since I had some time to blast a gd show and picked 76 because it seems to be underrated, that crazy fingers was so mellow and jazzy.even took the time to upload some pics to lastfm since all the others are very low quality or not b&w, please vote them up if you canhttps://www.last.fm/music/Grateful+Dead/+images/e78a70b5984acdc89ecb187588763075https://www.last.fm/music/Grateful+Dead/+images/b068c79d7c7570e72a7475e8929c0cbc >>85222458>>Dave Bixby - Ode to Quetzacoatlthat one has to be one of the first psychedelic folk albums I listened back in the day and even to this day what I expect to find when I listen to psych folk, the themes also make the whole experience very deep
>Charles Mingus - Let My Children Hear Musicthe range of emotion here is really powerful. black saint had a very consistent thread running through it, but this progresses a lot like a narrative, rather than describing a single, static atmosphere. it's adventurous as fuck, i feel like i'm sailing somewhere dangerous on a ship, or watching a film in which the protagonist does that.i'd still have to say my favorite mingus is black saint, but i could see this becoming a favorite too.
>>85222690>it's adventurous as fuck, i feel like i'm sailing somewhere dangerous on a shipgood thoughts! I love it, very cinematic I agree. If i remember correctly Mingus said this was his best album he ever made and I would honestly agree. Black Saint was great but never hit as high for me as LMCHM did with songs like the Shoes of the Fisherman (those interplaying sax and string sections are just heaven)>>85222616i never knew you were a deadhead huit????
>>85223878haha fish stick
Hello /daily/ how's it going. First week at work was kinda depressing but at least I think I finally found a place to live. Hope to get a better hang of the job next week and go back to normal life like posting on /daily/.Also any of you has seen José Gonzáles live? He's playing a show here at the end of the month, I'm considering going.
>>85222580Cool! 76 is a unique year. Crazy set lists. Really far out Help>Slip>Franklin’s. There’s some good stuff in 6/9/76. There’s this one show I’m trying to remember with a really beautiful Mission in the Rain too
hey hey we wanna be cool too!!! nothing but hits from your friends stick and caviarrr! sticks picks and cav's must-haves coming to you live for the rest of january!!
Hey guys some anons and I started a WhatsApp group in which we share stuff, discover new albums and just simply discuss music. It's very comfy and active, so it's a good place to join if you feel like having sustained conversations. Cheershttps://chat.whatsapp.com/6Vynl3UMAgGDsBEhuDc9I7
>>85224481this is the one with Mission in the rain, it really was a highlight>>85223134>i never knew you were a deadhead huit????they might not be my favorite band or one from which I have many favorite albums (just started to listen around late 2016 desu) but probably it is the one I enjoy the most listening, there's always something different in every show and i just find em entertaining overall>>85224947nice, now im feeling the temptation to do one of these, also <3 for gigi masin
>>85224947Kicking it off with a /daily/ meme! Also wtf Musical Miracle is listed as Miracle Musical on Spotify.
>>85223947welcome back anbro! sorry to hear about the job but hope everything clears up soon so you can be back to shitposting with usnever seen him live either but couldn't hurt to go, no?>>85224947whewwwww what a good start, nice calendar bros
oh also plan to make a new daily rym trip list so reply to this if you DONT want to be included, otherwise will include most trips from the last list + newboys
>>85224947sell me in with your masin and DPRK thoughts>>85214864their early stuff is really avant-folk / free folk oriented (might be their best phase). they decided to be more bleep-oriented on their later works and now they're focusing on collage techniques. it's a very underrated band, I would like to explore their discog further.
>valium aggelein - hier kommt der schwartze mondsome beautiful spacey guitars. completely in the vein of duster. not nearly as much of a slowcore release as it is a space rock release. had some nice singing, but i wish they sung more. sounds a bit sparse at points, but lovely and relaxing otherwise.
>>85224947dwarfs of east agouza is amazing
>>85227817Democratic People's Republic of Korea
>>85227817they misspelled DORK(theyre talking about you)

Bandwagon status: jumped> Mujician & Ingoma - Tribute to the Blue NotesEh, gets quite intense in the last 10-15 minutes, but for the most part consists of dull jazz with bits of interest sprinkled in between to keep you going till the end. 5/10

Sunday time my dudesGreat week, been playing lots of music at work too (mostly the hip hop on this chart)

>>85201005>80s Backlog>Has 3 albums from the 70s
>>85238796yeah i didnt recognize until it was too latein any case im enjoying those too lol.
Not Pictured: about 100 scrobbles of the Motifs>>85237200nice Abe, Fahey, and Robbins!also hows that Mulatu Astatke? always curious to check it out but it seemed very youtubecore to me>>85236319himi back at it again with the incorrect opinions!that's ok you still my boy tho>>85237605these are solid thanks benj :)your pic reminds me of your collages, any new updates on those?
back again with the 70s portion of my 80s backlog (i got some recs from someone that i didn't vet).>Pere Ubu - The Modern Dance>The Pop Group - Yjust gonna review these together as they seem to be from the same sort of milieu that inspired a lot of later, 80s post-punk.each felt very solid but a little formative, full of ideas that hadn't yet become fully realized. i guess that's part of their appeal. familiarizing myself with both, i'm getting better at recognizing how a lot of the more experimental music of the 80s came about.the birthday party, for example, are basically pop group worship. i feel however that the songwriting is a bit stronger, more flourished.gonna give some more time for both of these records to sink in, otherwise pretty good stuff.
>>85238958It's very comfy, great melodiesIt's a safe record but great>MPP, NMH, FenneszIs this my chart when I was 16?(Only those though hehe)
>>85239956i knew I was going to get called out for that shit made an anniversary dinner and had to play some classics alright?Fennesz i have no excuse for i was straight jamming to that in the shower
>valium aggelein - hier kommt der schwartze mondalways thought of this as the alter-ego to Duster's Stratosphere and put off listening for a very long thinking it could rival one of my long time favorite albums. Well, there is something to be said about time and expectations, and this certainly didn't hold up. Don't get me wrong, I did like this a whole lot; the more indie fuzzy rock songs that sorta bounce around your head in classic Duster style. Rest is more in the vein of NSB with aimless drones that I find difficult to grasp on to and be capture by their flow. Maybe in another life I found this first and loved it far past Stratosphere, but alas in this one I am a lover of the latter. 4/10

Calendar updates coming soon, but alongside that I've made a goal to listen to at least 600 albums by the end of this year. Hoping for 700+, but 600 is the baseline. So with some help from ~ratteu I compiled a chart based off the highest rated albums of a bunch of rymers with big minimal wave collections, compiled in sets of 14, 9 and 3. It's mostly minimal synth, synthpop and post-punk, but it is just compiled from top ratings that I haven't rated, so there's some artists from all sorts of genres in here. Should be fun, hoping to listen to 2+ releases a day including the calendars!
here's my week lol. flexing with that cure release version ig
Here's my week. Really enjoyed both of Tobari's albums. It was my first time listening to them.
Good labels: Sub Rosa
Very, very campy music. Apparently this is some kind of a musical, but I really can't find an overarching plot, maybe I'm just a bad listener. I feel like if I was more queer and liberal I'd probably dig it, it has a sort of theatrical vibe, like they're singing some electroswing lyrics to 'experimental music' or something. The Japanese songs a bit hard to stomach. Not neccessarily bad, but not my taste. ΛVADN' Ckrystall - Jazz' MadDue to the simple compositional nature, pop and punk structuring, and recording technology used in most minimal synth, it's much rarer to find minimal albums with long tracks. Jazz Mad, on the other hand, is 42 minutes at 6 tracks, with two well over 9 minutes. So how does it fare? It might not be the easiest to follow at times, but it definitely conveys a good atmosphere. It's a nocturnal, spooky sound that makes you feel like a creature of the night. Haschisch T'Es Pas Cap! is an absolute marvel, sounding almost vampiric at times. They also did a good job keeping the tracks moving, it's a lot less repetative than the track lengths would have you think, but that's a bit to it's detriment. Overall, enjoyable, but a little unfocused. I'd pick it up. ΛV
>>85247803woops mixed up the scores but you can read the pic lol
>>85236319my thoughts:>Mujician and Ingoma - Tribute to the Blue NotesSet one starts off delicate highs and chordal currents via piano maneuvering the space trumpets and flutes occupy - smoky and languorous, they slowly ante up the action through the set. Impressed with the rhythym sections ability to smoothly transition from jauntier sections to lighter/sparse sections - the synergy between rhythm and the voices is something else. I think set one highlights are when the piccolo (or high pitched flute?) flys in - literally the sonic image is something flitting above the rest of the crowd. That and when some harmonica action gets going. I hear some latin jazz grooves from rhythm and hindustani melodies from flute.Set two gets freer-er - speedy but controlled toggling of notes on brass against a rhythm section that places special emphasis on dynamics. Doesn't feel as frenetic as I would like, but the positive is that it's a very pleasant run of notes. Really enjoy how spindly the bass gets. Would listen while doing housework.Score: 6/10 - aka I very much enjoyed, feels like attention is paid to the craft in a way i find earnest, but (for now) doesn't feed an itch as expressly as I'd like (def needs more listen).rym: https://rateyourmusic.com/~whiteSurfStyle5(warning: nothing on it besides this rating)

Applying to MFA programs this week lads. Wish me luck
>>85251283good luck m8, did you make that image? it looks so nice, never listened to la di da di but listened some of it live and the band went hard af
>>85251552Thank you, I did make it. I actually don’t love that particular album. I saw them in support of it too though and it was fun
>various - harmony of the spheresfirst exposure to a lot of these artists. have to say this was a mixed back. ranges from incredibly groovy space rock tunes to long expanses where not much happens to pretty unflattering noisein other words, while i really like some stuff like the bardo pond and roy montgomery tracks, there's not much cohesion here between the artists.5
>>85253004already knowing how crunch feels about this album, air supply will likely be our favorite of the week.

good night bump!
>>85251283What is your fine art?
slight bump. couldn't get to sleep as i'd wanted, so i'll probably be back on soon with some more 80s thoughts. have also been filling in some blind spots in black metal. emperor, immortal, nokturnal mortum etc.
pretty good Kode9+Spaceape cutrecommended for """industrial""" hip hop fanshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tO4evUCK6Zw>>85238958>your pic reminds me of your collages, any new updates on those?Haven't done them recently, been very busy with uni and just bought a new mix controller, maybe I'll get back into it once I have more free time.
>GuitarA nice collection of lofi ditties. Some of the primitivist sounding pieces lost me but it really shines when it does it's strange folk ballad interpretations.>BawkseeA shitty collection of soundcloud trap ditties. Walk is infectious, with Comethazine's squeaky voice posturing over a creeping beat that sounds a bit too experimental for it's own good. It's too bad that it only lasts for an minute thirty before i'm treated with underdeveloped soliloquies on how soundcloud hypebeast #2134 is going to fuck my (non existent) girlfriend.>PopThe production is great, but you already know that. I just love the weird mechanical and airy sound effects that makes me feel like i'm in an ICU in the middle of a forest.>Back to Black MandaraIf you need proof that LRD doesn't use harsh noise a crutch, then listen to the opening track to this. It's a strange combination of "Night of the Assassins" and "Fallin' in Love with", and the instrumentation is lush and crisp. Seriously, you can play that for your friends and not be treated with tinnitus jokes. Mizutani just has a knack for melody. There are only a handful of tracks like these however, the bulk of this bootleg is more of the same lofi noisiness you know and love.>Catch The PlaugeThis is average punk with interesting piano melodies kind of grafted onto the beginning of each track.>Walter StedingNot all No Wave releases are winners. To be honest I barely remember this.>HeresyThis brings on the atmosphere well, but I kind of wish I felt a more compelling range of emotions than "hey this is pretty dark I guess".>Temple IVIt's nice, but it doesn't really go anywhere. The three part chord progression on the second track is a touch more dramatic, then it reverts back to guitar ambient mediocrity.
>>85257169>Slow Deep and HardThis is really shitty but more so incredibly interesting. It's easy to attack how Steele carelessly grafts different segments into suites, but it's this practice that makes the album all the more oddly compelling. My biggest issue is with the more straightforward hardcore segments. It's almost like Steele had these great and ostentatious ideas but struggled to abandon the safe hardcore punk crutch for too long. Not saying I dislike that HxC sound, it's just not his thing.
lo fi jazz
>>85254974Jeff's show has been on fire recently with the random ambient/new age stuff, 70s Swedish folk or krautrock, private press releases, advance copies of new drone-folk shit like Matt Lajoie and William Tyler, bootlegs of newer psych bands' live sets...The Grateful Dead stuff has been on point too, some great exploratory "Dark Star"s recently that I'd never even heard before
so if I start posting what I listen to in daily are people just gonna steal my favorite albums?
Would love some punk & metal recs. Trad metal in high school, Sleep in college but never really explored beyond that.
>>85257737please please let us steal your favourite albums(we'll let you steal ours, don't worry)

What is this album
>>85260705inner city big fun?
At work I'm pretty much in charge of the warehouse and get to play music and shit, mostly I play nice smooth 90s hip hop (Tribe, Digable Planets, De La Soul, KMD) and lots of different jazz (nothing to wild or free, but energetic is nice. Like Study in Brown)Give me some recs that I haven't heard that I can play!my rym: http://rateyourmusic.com/~borzoi
does anyone have a first wave post-hardcore chart on hand?
>>85261666https://rateyourmusic.com/list/nomorehype/rym_ultimate_box_set__post_hardcore/Here's a starterNice trips
>>85261648https://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/juggaknots/re_release/make sure it’s the one with all the bonus tracks so you can jam to “Come Along” (possibly my favorite hip hop tune for some ungodly reason)also The Midnight Eez S/T if you have any instrumental hip hop headsI would also recommend Bitch Ass Darius FTS but i don’t know how vulgar you can get
>>85261342Yeah it looks like thisThank you

>>85263802followed. That's some really dope art. What's your RYM?
>Billy Nicholls - Would You Believeit is a nice album, the melodies of most tracks and dreamy vocals make it stand out from the sunshine pop era. daytime girl is definitely a song to come back to.2+>Harris Newman - Accidents with Nature and Each Other one of the darkest american primitive albums i've heard, at times it feels like a whole band and vocalist with deep voice would inevitablely join to turn these songs into a gothic country direction.the pieces, just as the whole album, follow solid structures rather than just noddling for sake of dexterity. progressions like "it's a trap" to "lake shore drive" give sense to the album, while "like a thousand stolen blankets" or "driving all night" have said sense of progression within themselves where haunting atmospheres slowly take form.3+

>>85262098>>85262607>>85262846Thanks a lot!! Pharcyde fits perfectly, and I played DJ Shadow today (regarding instrumental hip hop). Gonna play all your recs ! !I've also been playing Muddy Waters and some other blues stuff, having a great time haha

>>85265550Nice!He's super good, I'm gonna work with him with my band sometime in the future for album cover or poster or shirt or something, it'll be greatI love your stuff by the way!
>>85257169Fuck okay now about the films.>BalthazarIt's not on the chart but I just watched this. After viewing the seemingly prosaic and realistic but endlessly captivating "Man Escaped", I was kind of shocked to see how dreamlike this one was. Shots end quickly, sometimes cut too short, and they fade into one another. Story beats are spliced together in an almost surreal way.It's good. I liked how Marie and Balthazar almost switch roles in their crucial relationship with one another. Without going into spoilers, Marie ends up treated like and acts like an animal, while Balthazar is made to literally bear worldly and humanly possessions before ending up with a fate previously threatened to humans. He even gets canonized I think.Also... wait.>"Wiazemsky made her on screen acting debut at the age of 18, playing Marie"Also Marie is -really- cute.>UnforgivenThis one is kind frustrating in a stylistic way. It's clear that Eastwood tired of the old romantic western tropes and sought to make them play out in reality. The main character, who used to be a badass, cant even get on his horse. The societal favorite, the kid criminal, is kind of pathetic and clearly lost. Even the big bad villain isn't as bad as he seems.The story world is... unforgiving. Protagonists frequently use the same devices as the antagonists to further the plot, and certain arcs kind of end in a way that is not as entertaining as satisfying conceptually.The ending scene is interesting. Rather than take this standoffish attitude to the bitter end, Eastwood sort of throws it all in our face, giving us an incredibly stylized climax that satisfies our id but leaves us cold and rather disgusted in how the main character regresses into nihilism and violence. This one was more fun to think about than watch. After seeing Balthazar this might get bumped down to a 6.
>SpiderverseThis is really entertaining but leaves nothing to cherish after viewing it. It's just a breath of fresh air after the repetitive drivel we've been treated to as superhero films. It feels fresh while still playing it kind of safe, which isn't a bad thing at all.>Under The SkinA film that's minimal without feeling empty, which is quite a feat. I really cared about that (alien's? experiment's?) story arc as she learned to become more human, fails, and then becomes subject to the same cold treatment that she gave to her victims.

>>85269114i've listened to plenty of other Coltrane and i've listened to the other Ride album but i've slept on those albums too long :'( i'll listen to em next, thanks!
>>85263802>Cool set. I don’t know this guyJeff Conklin is a cool ass motherfucker. Loves the Dead, Neil Young, Dylan and 1.0 era Phish, puts on his own gigs for new psych-esque bands and tapes the shows, is pretty tight with a lot of the new American primitive players (like Ryley Walker, William Tyler, and also Daniel Bachman, who trianglecubed knows IRL)But yeah his WMFU show is great, as is his twitter and instagram (also ryley walker too if you don't already follow him)
>>85269285Hell yeah. Sounds like me
keep finding myself drawn to the english underground scene. bought england's hidden reverse, which documents the stories of nurse with wound, coil, and current 93, and have been making my way through that.this is a list of bands in steve stapleton's catalog, thinking of checking out some of the lesser-known ones on here, or making a chart of ones to check out.currently listening to Amon Düül II - Phallus Dei, and it sounds like pagan black metal written and recorded in the late 60s. amazing stuff, and i can definitely see the influence in early and mid-career NWW material.excited to do the rest of current 93's, coil's, and NWW's discographies as well. have checked out a bit of each but have not delved very deeply yet.
>>85269114lol ok i just listened to Going Blank Again twice in a row this album is amazing
>>85270875better than nowhere for sure
this is coolwhat is it supposed to be?
>>85274866Thanks. What do you see?
>>85275346i honestly have no idea hahait feels like getting those colorblindness tests at the doctoras there anything particular the art is supposed to represent or be based off of?
>>85274866>>85275346I don't know the first thing about art analysis, but that design makes me feel very comfortable and I really like it. Super cool art, EthyBoy.
>>85274866would wear on a tee desu
>>85275623>>85275707Thanks. It’s almost never something explicit, just a feeling I’m trying to explain with colors and shapes and composition. I used to dig a lot of old abstract expressionism
https://tomoakisaito.bandcamp.com/releasesTomoaki Saito of Saibou Bungaku with really minimal, chamber style of folk. Reminds me of aoba, doesn't do anything flashy yet still super cozy
>>85275777What does the text mean?? is it supposed to give off "road" or travelling vibes the colors make me feel like seeing parts of the earth (blue ocean, green grass, tan dirt, etc.)
>various - harmony of the spheressuper tired so won't say much about this, just expected to really dislike this but ended up having a lot of fun with it. The Flying Sauce song is like actual space rock heaven, and the Roy Mont and Bardo Pond tracks aren't all that bad either. "Since When" is super ambient and filled with little subtle field recordings so im bound to love it. Not bad/10(5/10)also plan to revisit and write a formal review of Vallium since I've done a LOT of relistens and chats with fellow trips about it.
>>85275878With this one I was playing around with making a big but completely random pattern, hence all the different orientations. Was seeing if I could turn it into anything but an eyesore given the chaos. I had this line from a song vaguely in mind
>>85276006Oh I see...which song was it?
>>85276096Later era dead song called “so many roads” :p
>>85276125Ah ok...i'm not too familiar with their stuff outside of the "live/dead" but that's pretty neatthere's something to be said for more obscure music-based designs
>>85275723>>85274866>>85276125You know abstract fan-made Dead merch is really hot right now. Basically I think a lot of people are tired of the usual Skull and Roses or Stealie emblazed stuff that any basic bitch can pick up at Spencer's gifts or Hot Topic. They want new stuff that hardcore Deadheads will pick up on, but still looks good anyway to non-Heads.It's basically a continuation of the old lot scene except much more high quality designs overall and collaborative thanks to the internet and computer softwares. Lots of these creators have like tens upon tens of thousands of instagram followers just for their etsy page or whatever.I too would definitely cop this and some of your other designs as shirts or like posters to hang on the wall at home.
>>85276987Yeah, thanks for the kind words. There’s a big influx of young, hip culture happening to the dead world now.

so turns out i'm missing a lot of black metal from the RYM top 80; made a chart of every album i haven't done, or else direly need to revisit.>Emperor - Anthems to the Welkin at Duski'd heard nightside, but not this one, and honestly i prefer this. the production is grittier, thinner, and the album itself is more fast-paced, more infernal; it doesn't hesitate at all. the symphonic components are also a bit less apparent, which i like. feels more like a straight bm record.grade: B+>Nokturnal Mortum - Гoлoc cтaлii'd actually heard this a while ago, but was in need of a revisit. the first song on here apart from the intro is absolutely fantastic, and throughout the album that sort of energy and atmosphere is reclaimed, leading to some stellar moments. a little bit monotonous towards the end, though. i felt it could have been a tad shorter.grade: B>Immortal - Pure Holocausthaving only heard at the heart of winter before getting to this one, i was a bit surprised at the sound, which seems to consist in straightforward, troglodytic bm, a contrast to their more cleanly produced, thrash-oriented sound on at the heart.the riffing here is exceptional, actually, though i do feel it sometimes gets buried in the production choices. i'll have to spend some more time with this one; i could see it becoming very rewarding on subsequent listens.grade: B->Gris - Il était une forêt...i expected a good deal more out of this than i got. it's beautiful, yes, there's a certain care to orchestration here that black metal doesn't usually have—but it nonetheless gets in parts very monotonous. overall, an ok album, and the last track, though it isn't actually bm, is fucking gorgeous.final grade: C+>Kvist - For kunsten maa vi evig vikefucking fantastic. this is everything i like about black metal, really, not much else to say.grade: A-

>>85278137if you're going by the RYM chart, you're going to miss out on some stuff because NS albums are de-listed. don't sleep on Branikald and Absurd (early era if you like retard caveman metal, later era if you like melodic and more conceptual stuff)
>Sandwell District - Feed-Forwarda decent variety of techno but the results aren't too interesting. it goes between ambient and dub techno and the tracks are all decent, but these genres have been done far better elsewhere, and i've heard better stuff from regis.5>Surgeon - Force + Formthis is really solid minimal techno. 4 long tracks that, for the most part, manages to capture the attention throughout. you can pretty much trace most modern techno back to the sound of this record.6+>X-102 - Discover the Rings of Saturnreally cool early techno album and i think this is the first of UR's attempts at an concept album. the album follows a journey through the rings of saturn until reaching the planet itself. it has some really cool ambient soundscapes with some great techno in between, titan is hard as nails.7
>>85282067I'm not a big SD fan but that album is pretty sound defining and manages to be better than most of the stuff going for the same style.Regis has better stuff yes, but it's a shame you didn't enjoy Feed Forward. There are a lot of great tracks imolisten to more drexciya stuff, you can't go wrong
>>85282241i didn't dislike it, i just found it kinda average, especially considering the acclaim it gets. i plan on going through their solo stuff and the rest of the label anyway so hopefully i come round to it after hearing a bit more of their stuff.im definitely gonna put more drexciya on my next chart
>>85281091Benji where can I contact you B-)I wanna talk graphic design stuff
>>85281091cool drawing :o
ok i’m listening to techno and it’s just the same sounds repeated over 4 minutes? what’s up with that guys More like Tech-eno. Ambrian Tech-eno more like it (cuz its shit) heyy haha ty ty
wow brian eno and jon hassell's fourth world music had so much potential but is so boring
>>85284097fuck u plebeian
>>85286225But he’s right
>>85285897that applies to a lot of eno projects
>>85287852Yeah very true. Weird
>>85287852Tbh Eno's collaborations and producing work is either mediocre as a whole or good but the other party isn't bringing it

catching up; more to comeMusical Miracle - Hawaii Pt. II>neo-psychedelia, art poopThis guy is able to pull off a variety of styles pretty competently, and this album as a whole was a fun experience. Revisiting each track individually made me realize that most of them aren't that great, it's just the atmosphere that drew me in initially. After a few listens, the "magic" was lost on me and the songwriting started to sound pretty bland, no matter how great the arrangements were. That rap song sticks out like a sore thumb.2ADN' Ckrystall - Jazz' Mad>minimal synth, minimal waveA lot more grandiose than I was expecting based on the genre tags since they imply something very minimal! Well it was at times, but other times you're met with multi-layered synth explorations. The sparse use of vocals worked pretty well; any more and they would have gotten obnoxious. Like cav said, pretty good atmosphere but unfocused which caused it to be fairly unmemorable.2>>85247803I added my rating system, I thought you might wanna add yours too
reading steve gunn's invisible jukebox for the wire and realized it's the first time i read one of his interviews. the guy really knows his stuff, talks about some dead and (something I wouldn't have imagined) antioch arrow. might upload the issue later
