***IF YOU'RE NEW AND WOULD LIKE TO JOIN, READ THIS FIRST!***

It's August everyone!

The point of these threads is to encourage people to look for new and interesting music. We do this by listening to and, ideally, discussing albums we've never heard before. Many of us already listen to new music daily; these people are in it to venture out of their comfort zone by listening to albums they otherwise wouldn't have, or just to have a good time.
We track our progress using calendars, which we fill with the albums we listen to on each day, and a rating of some sort for all of them. There are templates in mega link at the end of this post. We encourage you to write the albums' titles and the artists' names somewhere on your calendar. We don't have any tools for creating these calendars; we use simple image editing softwares.
You can predetermine a schedule for a month, or you can report back on whatever album you randomly picked every day. Many of us make our schedules interesting in various ways, popular ones being genre restrictions, new releases, and recs from the /daily/ community.

Anyone can start the threads, but usually one of /daily/'s dedicated trips starts them. If the thread is not yet up by 15:30 GMT, we encourage you to start it! Just be sure to use the standard OP. Of course you can start it earlier than that too, but nobody ever does. So hey!

Most importantly, have fun!

pocahontas ost was so saccharine it was cringe inducing

hey guys i tried this thread a few days ago but it never really took off. I've put a lot of thought into this so i was hoping i could get some discussion going.

I've made this thread as a response to the many people who claim to not understand the appeal of drone music. Now of course this isn't the only reason why people like drone, but i believe that spiritual factors play a much larger role in the general appreciation of drone music than many people think.

(1/2)

John 1:1
"in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God"

Hinduism regards the mantra OM as a sacred sound which when vibrated in your throat during meditation, can alter your state of consciousness, and bring you closer to God.

Pandit Pran Nath (a hindustani classical artist who was the main inspiration for La Monte Young) once wrote "Nadam brahmam" which translates to "sound is God"

The law of vibration states that everything in the universe consists of energy and that energy is vibration. Transitively, everything in the universe is vibration.

>Listening to music to be "interesting"

I remember being 14 too.
>>
90% of women i've come across listen to music because "this makes me happy and makes me want to dance". Then you have the "scene" girls who populate certain genres to be part of the clothing and fashion. Lots of women don't really willingly even listen to music. So for most women, it's either a fashion accessory or bangers at the club. You obviously have girls genuinely into indie (not just for the scene - hipsters), but very few.

Seriously, think of how many genres exist and try and think of any of your female friends who are into any of those.....black metal, prog rock, tech house and on and on. You'll find 90% of the ones you know are into top 40 or EDM bangers. Men have a much broader taste across hundreds of genres.

Women just don't connect much emotionally with music outside the top 40 or entry level indie/emo.

When you think about it, many genres of music are more aggressive and abrasive.....testosterone fueled I guess? I don't think they can relate to that stuff outside maybe an angry puberty phase or something.

I also notice a lot of indie/emo girls do often have serious deep rooted anger issues, whereas indie dudes are often very chill.

>>57800001
its important for women to be socially conscious

biologically men have to take risks and not care about social norms as much. just be great. it sounds retarded to talk about this when it comes to music taste, but stay with me.

this biological lack of understanding/care for social norms is also why men are more likely to be criminals, socially oblivious neets, but also ignore the spoonfeeding of mainstream music

Seriously though. Music that treads between commerciality and artistic expression (ie. Pop music as it was understood in the 60s) is done. If we're turning to Vampire Weekend as purveyors of our culture, we're fucked. They make some okay stuff. I like em, but we truly are born in the wrong generation fam, our elders are laughing at us.
