Who is the best white rapper and why is it action bronson?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I can't even begin to describe how much I hate Chance The Rapper
DAE Eminem? u guys wuldnt get why Mmlp2 and shady XV are masterpieces since you guys spend all day eating fish sticks with le gay fish kenya east

Joking aside, Action Bronson could be the best (solo) white rapper and Beastie Boys or Atmosphere if we're talking about groups.
Yes, that's true, but consider that he doesn't take himself too seriously, and his lyrics are mostly made just for fun. Plus his flow is great
eminem or watsky

Andy Stott - Faith in Strangers
>ambient dub techno, electronic, spacious


It's an easy album to make a comparison to so someone has a general idea of what they're getting into. Sorry I used an album that people know well?
because it enforces the notion that sunbather make anything original or innovative, which they don't, and makes it sound like they influenced this album, when in fact it was the other way round. you are contributing to plebism
just shut the fuck up, this guy is sharing an album & giving other anons an idea of what it's like, stop being a twat and take your grudge with that shitty band elsewhere
Sunbather is the name of an album you fucking loser lmao
I'm aware that this album came out well before Deafheaven released Sunbather, but seeing as though more people have listened to Sunbather than have listened to anything by Lantlôs, I made the comparison. Get off your high horse, bud.

What do you think of Jaden Smith? Beside him being the son of Will Smith, he's actually pushing for a rapping career. Whether it's on own strength or not is debatable, but it's actually pretty decent. The kid's 16.

Latest album recently dropped and is free4stream:


good lord these are awful

horrible beats and his voice is shit
why do we have the same threads with the exact same wording?
I think he's a good kid for putting money towards advertising on 4chan and not being ashamed of it
Because we are all humans and in the grand scheme of the universe very similar to each other
Life must be nice having your dad be a rich scientologist so he can pay your way into fame without having any actual talent or interesting/original ideas.

What's the best pop album in the last 30 years?

Pop music is anything that isn't folk or art music.
That's popular music. Pop music is a specific subset of popular music.

Interactions with Musicians Thread

I sold MC Ride 3 salted nut rolls when I was working at a gas station in Denver. I asked him if he was MC Ride, he responded with "yes." I said I liked his music and he said "Thanks, man." Then he took his candy and walked out.

Surprisingly pleasant guy in real life.

He is famously unpleasant, but it only seems to those he's working with.
He looks extremely unhappy to be there.
me too.
It's weird, later on he's essentially arguing against the same romantic, sublime notion of the individual that John Maus has railed against (in much more academic language).
I've met Suicide Silence & they were pretty friendly & Fronz from Attila who was cool

Why is the majority of popular rock music based around vocal melodies? Why isn't a Smiths-like approach more popular?
14 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I dunno, it's generally the vocal part that sticks out most to me in a Smiths song, and I think most people would say the same.
>poor vocal range
So, if the majority of popular rock music is based around the vocal melodies, how much does the instrumental actually matter? It seems like you can just play standard chords and be done with it. I'm listening to "In Utero" for the first time and dig the vocals, but I find the guitars kind of boring. Although, it can also be that I just prefer more clean guitars.

Morissey has very poor range and as a result the vocal melodies of the majority of Smiths songs are lacking. This is why nearly all Smiths songs were based around Marr's brilliant playing, not Morissey's singing.
(Not true, by the way)
The Smiths are boring and Morissey's singing/lyrics are melodramatic horseshit.

What's the best track from PHM and why is it Terrible Lie?
11 replies omitted. Click here to view.
It cuts all fucking energy out of the album and has the line "Grey would be the color if I had a heart"

Completely agree with this. I really hate that line...

Sin and Terrible Lie are the best though

I do get why on the surface it seems "sexy" but I don't like how this is what so many think of the song...It's really not about being sexy, especially looking at it within the context of the album
the only Nin album worth a damn, but its pretty good
yeah gotta agree with you there.

new thread dudes, it's up and running again, gonna have to post the first couple of updates in separate parts

It probably was the best season. All that excitement and drama, too bad we will never see such a thriller again.
The Albini one is still the GOAT Hunger Games thread.

The fact that so many books still name Death Grips “the greatest or most significant or most influential” experimental rap band ever only tells you how far experimental rap music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success: Death Grips sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. experimental rap critics are often totally ignorant of the rap music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that Death Grips did anything worth of being saved.
who is this fluid druid

Can someone explain what this is? I've been hearing it thrown around a lot lately.

>i think you are just retarded. it took me literally 2 minutes to read and was easy to understand.

You're missing the point here. It's not "difficult to read" it's simply boring prose dressed up in a way that doesn't interest the reader.

Bad prose kills writing, I say this as someone who writes for a living, and not shitty articles for a garbage rag that needs page space.
>not exploring pop music through art music

Their first album was pretty solid though. Did not enjoy their sophomore album in the slightest though. They're one of those groups I don't like but kind of tolerate/almost enjoy just because my friends who love them expose me to their music all the time. Like I said, An Awesome wave is pretty solid. Can't really say much more for their music though.
