>peste noire is nu-male oriented

explain how
Am I supposed to believe that transcendental-totally-not-hipster-guys-i-promise metal isn't the bread and butter of nu-males fronting for the black metal blues cred?

what do you mean
Obvious bait thread, everything by Neige is nu male music.

"I prefer a hundred times queers, more dirty, depraved, intelligent and perverse. I'm not homosexual ... but every time I have an eyelash falls and I'm told to make a wish, I make that of becoming."
Sounds like he's saying he wishes he was gay because men are superior to women.

this is probably the only twice song our guy would actually like anyway

it's the only one that's a normal genre and not a mishmash of meme noises
He never shits on any release even if a track is deserving of it. He tries appeasing his viewers too hard, makes his videos insufferable.

If there was a reviewer or whatever that was less than a faggot and actually knew how to deliver a good joke I'd watch the shit out of that.

sorry about getting off topic here but I'm gonna talk about music for a sec

>Judy Henske & Jerry Yester - Farewell Aldebaran
Imagine if you can Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, just replacing the cabaret and circus sounding shit with religious litanies and chants, then you basically have this album. But otherwise, much like Sgt. Pepper’s, it’s a huge hodgepodge of any conceivable style, congealed with no small amount of chamber orchestration and production-tempered psychedelia.

It’s short and its usually sweet, perhaps tacky for a minute. The first two thirds of the album are markedly more bombastic and consistently energetic than the back third. The highs (“Snowblind,” “Three Ravens,” “St. Nicholas Hall,” “Raider”) are well worth their weight in filler (“One More Time,” “Rapture”). Also, Judy Henske’s voice here is godly.

>Cats and Cats and Cats - Mother Whale

I feel like this could've been a release I enjoyed if a couple things were changed. The basic melodies were nice and the songwriting didn't seem too bad. This just felt a bit too... quirky for me. I don't usually mind music that is a eccentric but this felt too forced. It's like the whole focus of this album is the band's quirkiness and that really takes away from the rest of the experience.

Maybe I'm reading too much into this but something about this rubbed me the wrong way. The horns/strings felt over the top and paired with the cheerful British singing, it felt super cheesy. I'm not super big on this style of jangly pop, especially in this vein... so I'm not sure why I thought I'd enjoy this. I think this just isn't my style of music honestly.

Has a couple good moments but overall, isn't quite up my alley.

No he did not beat Yoko.
Actually he did but i guess i can't expect someone on /mu/ to renounce overrated hack John Lennon in favour of a woman's word that he beat her.
Paul also beat his wife. And Bob Dylan. And Lou Reed.

Yes to both
No. Mark III and IV combos are cheaper and sound better.

A good portion of black metal was recorded on fairly good equipment. It was just produced terribly.


Wrong genre.

Earlier Burzum was a 5150 however.

Post with the intent on discussing composition. And remember, this is NOT /classical/. Any music, such as jazz, is acceptable.

Post clyps and accompanying notation so we can accurately critique your composing from a theory perspective

>it evolved to best suit the kind of music it was meant to carry
This is a really interesting thought, I hadn't considered this.

Yeah, there's definitely an element of "it works because the audience is familiar with it" to standard forms. I'm asking so I can better understand nonstandard form, however.
For example
There's very clear structure, clear returns, and yet it doesn't fit anything standard.
(most of these are program music or art songs, for obvious reason. There's nonstandard absolute music though)
I do think programmatic shit needs to avoid standard musical forms, I've been writing stuff for films recently, and by necessity the forms (and phrasing) have been weird. It might just be the case that in these situations, the form isn't necessarily powerful in itself, it's just bending to something extramusical, like how the harmony of erlkonig is following the extramusical story.
But that of course ignores the fact that these forms are still compelling without the programmatic elements (I was thrilled by afternoon of a faun's form before I knew anything about the poem it was based on), so I guess I also have to do some more listening and thinking.

Forgot to say Jeck is a lot more ambient (no dance tracks to be found)
early Procol Harum and The Nice (though the former relies more in actual ensembles and the latter more energetic)
Pipers at the Gates of Dawn for a schizophrenic take on that album; Odessey And Oracle for a more baroque pop version of it


I have been unable to find anything else like it, except for more Fuck Buttons albums.
