It's 2018.

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.

Todd Rundgren - Something / Anything? (1972)
>pop rock, singer/songwriter

I say this about a lot of songs, but "I Saw the Light" really is a perfect pop song. I've heard it a solid three times in my whole life and it has been stuck in my head /all/ day, it's so great. The rest of the sprawling double album (my second in two days!) varies in quality, but Rundgren's unique voice in pop music always shines through. When Rundgren switches up his style, there are some pretty major fumbles, like the various attempts at glam rock or the absolutely bizarre, unnecessary "Intro", and there are some shining moments, like the fantasticly bizarre proto-zolo "Breathless". Even with all these style changes, it's obvious that Rundgren's talent lies in pure, unfiltered pop, and he's brilliant at it on this record.

Steffen Basho Junghans - Waters in Azure (2002)
>american primitivism

The genre tag is rather misleading here. This owes way more to minimalism and even post-rock than american primitivism. The guitar techniques may be in the primitivist vein, but you can't stray this far away from the blues and really be considered primitivism. Junghans deserves quite a lot of credit here, his use of silence and space is really impressive, there's a sense of longing that he conveys without shoving his emotions in the listeners face. However, this does translate to a really dry, overly sparse listen. There's no activity here at all, really, it's sparse to a fault. The guitar playing might be great, but Junghens lets it shine so rarely, pushed to the wayside in favor of unmemorable minimalism.

Playboi Carti - Playboi Carti (2017)
>trap rap, cloud rap, southern hip hop

I'm sick of rappers delivering nothing interesting and almost completely relying on the beat. There are certainly interesting trap rappers out there, or rappers that can make their tracks interesting beyond the beat. Uzi might not be that technically impressive on "XO Tour Llif3", but he's got a lot of emotion in his delivery; "Ultimate" may have a fantastic beat, but it would fail in the hands of anyone else besides Denzel Curry; "Codeine Crazy" and "Mask Off" just wouldn't work as well if handed to anyone else besides the lethargic Future. Here, I find myself wishing that every single song here was handed to a better, more interesting rapper. The beats are admittedly really solid, especially the opening two tracks, yet Carti is just such an uninteresting, disposable rapper. He actively makes the songs worse by being on them, he doesn't just snugly fit the beat and stay in the background, he just doesn't fit them at all, it's incredibly irritating. A better rapper on this would be really great, but Carti just can't stack up.

"I've been down so long" sounds a lot like the Dead and actually those tracks with a more upbeat tempo and stronger keyboards presence were the ones I enjoyed the most rather than its more "prog" side, even though the guitar playing is good I don't think the band was best suited to try that.

>Mercury Rev - Boces - 4.0
The boob album! This was just awesome, simply loved this album. Seldom repetitive, soft vocals, scratchy guitar, and lots of out there percussion and flute elements, I enjoyed every bit of this album and those 53 minutes flew by. A great example of what noise-pop should be, with some rigid edges. I hope to venture more into Mercury Rev to see what they have to offer, but for now I am content with Boces being the best thing I've heard all week.

>Owen Pallett - Heartland - 3.5
Thanks Lamb for pushing me to listen to this! Like the more poetic brother of Jens Lekman, I can't find any part of this album that bores me or leaves me wanting more. Beautiful violin, beautiful atmosphere, beautiful lyrics and story, just a well rounded baroque pop album all together.

>Baby Grandmothers - Baby Grandmothers - 2.5.
Experimental jam-psych band that doesn't really accomplish much with their experiments. Loud, incredibly repetitive, and puts you right to sleep with an hour filled with semi-talented performers jamming into nothing-ness (which also happens to be something I enjoy). First song is amazing. rest is alright.

Rec from /metal/. Pretty trad. Very good. Mastering's a bit weird, not a fan of that guitar tone but hey it beats LRD. but it makes me want to skate, which is a great sign. SICK RIFFS! HEAVY RIFFS! SAINT VITUS! Time to check out their next album like /metal/ told me to.
>Alphataurus - Alphataurus
I wanted to like this one more but it's alright. It's not at all offensive, and it's very well done, even pretty good, but it doesn't really excel your expectations of Prog too often. La Mente Vola is absolutely amazing, though. It does the thing where the bass gets too loud and it gets all crunchy and wonderful! Wish more bands would use that better, doing it with the low end or the vocals instead of just doing the entire thing noisy. Probably gets another point just because of how passionate these guys are, you can really tell they enjoyed making this. Maybe it'd help if I spoke Italian.
>Stiff Little Fingers - Inflammable Material
oh cool i love massive attack
GOOD album. Hits all the strides, high energy, strong lyrics, interesting riffs! Awesome! This shit has a 8 minute long track and it works! It's raw, it's agressive, but it's so well done and finely crafted. Sounds like punk from much later. No More Of That is by far the best song I've heard this year. Nice sonic variety throughout, no major faults, I'll be listening to this one a lot. Might even pick up a record.

>woopheadclrms - Meeting Room + Rare Plants
>sound collage, glitch
For me to enjoy albums of this ilk, they need to balance themselves. I'm not a huge fan of throwing an entire sonic palette at a wall and seeing the mess it leaves behind (Djwww, toiret status) nor am I a fan of the pure exploration of weird, off-kilter loops (Aaron Dilloway). More than anything I like hearing somewhat of a build-release structure. I think Revolutionary Pekinese Opera pulls this off impeccably for example. The moments of respite feel earned.

This album is far too unstructured and slow for my liking, but it is still an interesting listen to hear the disparate range of sounds used, from artificial to natural. Though I want more speed and energy to keep me engaged, this album is far from "unfun". It doesn't give a fuck purely judging by the amount of times it got away with using the "damn son, where'd you find this" sample.

>Sote - Sacred Horror in Design
>electroacoustic, Iranian folk
Though the interplay between electronics, the santour (hammered dulcimer), and the setar are incredibly interesting and work quite well together, the album's scope feels quite limited in terms of texture. The compositions are neat but meandering. This would have benefited from a tighter focus, but I still enjoyed my listens and I can see why this is a sleeper album on a few year end lists. The ten minute track "Plebeian" really grabbed me.

>Damien Dubrovnik - Great Many Arrows
>death industrial, chamber music
This really floored me on my first listen. This is not noise that comes from a place of outward aggression but inward emotion. I really felt like I was listening to some secret Xiu Xiu album based on the fantastic vocal performance. It pulls off that balancing act I mentioned in my earlier review. It hammers into you one moment then lulls you back with some beautiful strings, all while flowing together quite naturally. One of the better albums from 2017 for sure, glad to see it got some exposure.

The issues you outlined on Meeting Room make sense for something released just on bandcamp, though I don't usually find the lack of rewards in tasking albums to be hugely detrimental to my experience. Build-release is tried and true in music, but I've found listening to many experimental albums in succession makes it somewhat predictable.

The review for Sote and Damien Dubrovnik is spot-on, nicely put

switched around some things on here due to unavailability

The Gizmos - 1976/1977: The Studio Recordings (2000)
>garage rock, punk rock

The fact that this includes multiple versions of the same songs is a fairly large turn off, the different versions sound pretty much exactly the same and it just seems really pointless to include them, it makes about half of this totally pointless. The songs themselves are good, fun, upbeat, tight, juvenile garage punk. There's little to no distortion on the guitars which makes this really unique for punk, and the juvenile, sex-obsessed lyrics are really fun and funny to listen to. The music itself is totally fine, it's just the sequencing of the comp that really hurts it.

2.5+

Cesária Évora - Cabo Verde (1997)
>morna

Exceptionally pretty and chill. I know very little about morna, but from what I can tell it's very mellow, soulful, and a little bit monotonous. The latter element usually manifests itself in long, drawn-out songs with little instrumental variation, something that is very common here. It's not a big problem, because there's a certain charm in how hypnotic these are, but the longer tracks are a bit tiring. It's got a little too much studio sheen to it as well, but yet again it fits the album itself. Strip it down to the bare basics and it's a haunting, hypnotic, engrossing record.

3.0+

Slayer - Show No Mercy (1983)
>thrash metal, speed metal

I honestly expected something a bit more hardcore and sinister than this. Without a doubt, this is Slayer's Kill 'Em All. Fast-paced, relentless, and easily the band's most amateurish release. It's honestly quite a fun record, the speed metal influence is obvious and it makes for some thrilling vocal theatrics and balls-to-the-wall guitar work. It's just too bare-boned from a songwriting standpoint to really become anything great, though.

2.5

Thanks! I know build-release is basic as all hell, but I'm a sucker for it when used appropriately. Post-rock can kindly fuck off for the most part but getting blasted with noise and then caressed by silence is something I'm quite fond of in experimental music.

>though I don't usually find the lack of rewards in tasking albums to be hugely detrimental to my experience
I find this sentiment interesting, could you elaborate a bit?

Ensemble of Unique Instruments / Danlee Mitchell performing Harry Partsch - Delusion of the Fury (1971)
>microtonal

I feel like anything I can say about this can pretty much just be summed up by "so this guy invented his own scale and built his own instruments tuned in it, eventually made this avant-garde album, and here I am, lazily sitting in front of a computer, lost in the badassness of music coming through my headphones, writing shit on a website called "Rate Your Music". It's just really, really cool stuff, and that's about all I can say. I much prefer the more melodic stuff that really explores the microtonality and Partsch's scales to the percussive stuff that makes up a lot of the back half of the album, but they're both really good.

3.0+

I was mostly thinking about experimental releases that present itself or ideas, sometimes without taking advantage of the narrative structure an album can allow. I see some reviews saying that an album doesn't go anywhere as a negative thing, but I like the idea of albums containing themselves in their own bubble or ending as is. Albums that require patience for their length, tolerance for their noise, or open-mindedness for their oddities shouldn't need something like a pleasant ending to balance themselves out.

Extreme examples would be something like Roland Kayn's A Little Electronic Milky Way of Sound, or Jurg Frey's L'ame est sans retenue I. They both stir for huge amounts of time without really concluding themselves, but I don't think that means they should be considered awful for not having an ending like Teatro Assente.

I'm doing goddamn Jungle January goddammit. A few of these aren't jungle proper per say (Squarepusher, Cujo (?), Roni Size, Photek (?)) but I added some LIT compilations at the bottom to boost my Jungle creds and overall it's pretty much full-on Jungle I think. These albums all feel pretty similar so I'm just going to put a green checkmark when I've heard it and review them individually:

>Squarepusher - Hard Normal Daddy
This album is pretty jammin', lots of funky / jazzy beats with some jazz fusion sounding samples competing with breakbeats for dominance until the electronics explode. Really intricately layered and works perfectly sometimes, although sometime of the jazz fusion verges on muzak at times. Will listen to again.

>Photek - Modus Operandi
This album blew me away unexpectedly, it was like all the best jazz elements of Hard Normal Daddy mixed with the dark and introspective side of Autechre. The thin synth melodies and baselines scrambled around over dense and intricate beats, everything came together well. Favorite was Aleph 1, would recommend.

>Jungle Hits Vol. 1
Like I bet a lot of these compilations will, it goes on WAY too long and you get the idea real fast. But the ragga yelling and soul samples are an interesting combo with the phat-ass beats they got here. Worth it for M-Beat - Incredible tho:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mL2Bgj-za5k
Sweet Love (also by M-Beat) sounds a lot like Massive Attack for anyone interested:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJDVpTNSni8
>>
>>77209938
The sample gives it an early Massive Attack vibe, I should say. The breakbeats are more like Goldie

Supplementing this all with some documentaries on the history of Jungle for anyone interested:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAh1WdsEVhE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pboSETUoSko

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SaFTm2bcac

This last one is on the 'Amen Break' which you've heard a million times in commercials and 'Straight Outta Compton' among plenty of other things. It forms the base of tons of Jungle / Breakbeat songs so it's worth being familiar with, plus the history is interesting imo.
>>
>>77209938
wew good luck
I'm pretty jaded when it comes to jungle and early dnb, ever since I was introduced to breakcore and ofher assorted, faster genres. get ready to hear a lot of amen breaks, and that one other break whose name I dont remember. whatever break u-ziq used for carpet muncher
>>
>>77210067
listening now, this sounds like the Amen Break to me
The other famous one is the funky drummer break I think

But thanks at any rate, I'll probably listen to some breakcore once I finish the chart off, assuming I'm not absolutely fucking sick of break beats by then.

Forgot exact thoughts on some old listens.

>Marvin Gaye - What's Going On (1971)

Starting to think there has NEVER been better production than on some of these Marvin Gaye albums. What an overwhelmingly beautiful mix of sounds here.

8/10

>The Neville Brothers - Live at Tipitina's (1986)

They’re never as funky as The Meters, nor is the music always interesting, but they were consistently they tightest live band I’ve ever heard, which counts for something.

6/10

>The Budos Band - The Budos Band II (2007)

Speaking of The Meters. Retro-fitted, laidback, blaxploitation funk. Consistently tasteful, always killer and authentic production, and they dig some improv. Would love to see them live.

7/10

>Fear Itself - Fear Itself (1969)

They didn't have quite the vision. Fear Itself is a one-and-done record from this mysterious US psych band (it's unclear exactly where they were from). The vocalist has a bluesy intonation a bit weaker than Joplin's or Slick's. But most distracting is how every other track is pretty rough and run-of-the-mill blues rock. It's way less interesting to me than the truly experimental psych experiments of "Billy Gene," for example. They were totally primitive and untrained, but not always in a heady or intuitive way like Parson Sound, for example.

6/10
>>
>>77209632
I agree to some extent. An album can be unstructured as hell if I enjoy the sounds/textures that it is putting out. If not though, there isn't much for me to hang onto. Concepts only go so far for my enjoyment.

>>77211656
It certainly is a matter of personal taste when it comes to these types of albums. I love nyoi plunger's breakneck speed but often the samples are, albeit intentionally, ugly.
>>
>>77210379
It’s p.fun but it’s all very surface level, plus I’m moving a little slow and I’ve put off some huge listens in order to go chronologically. Case in point, Here’s what round one looked like when I did a mucore tourney last summer. Hadn’t listened to any of these until then
>>
>>77216008
Oops that wasn’t the image I thought it was. Anyway, I meant to make a clearer point about having a strong coverage up to wherever I am in my list at the expense of being way behind on some key mu basics, or more generally, sticking to a plan at the expense of being aware of your environment.

Got permabanned for being 2 cool.. but here I am

John Cale, Tony Conrad, Angus MacLise, La Monte Young & Marian Zazeela - Inside the Dream Syndicate - Volume I: Day of Niagara
[1965]

In retrospect, that sure seems like a lot of people collaborating on a record this simple. Well, I don't mean "simple" in a negative way, it's actually one of the aspects that make me appreciate this. There's not much going on, there's Cale's viola which plays along with a violin and pretty much stays on the same tone for the whole recording, there's two singers that help the drones feel a bit more alive, and there's a drummer which sadly got lost in the mix (it's kind of a bad recording). The music is clear and flows naturally for the whole 30 minute runtime. I got out of this feeling like I hadn't really listened to it, but in a good way, if that makes sense. Good minimalism, you could call it cleansing.

>Renaldo and the Loaf - Songs for Swinging Larvae (1981)
A British music duo comprised of an architect and a pathologist, Renaldo and the Loaf, respectively. These guys make some wacky and occasionally catchy or intriguing Residents runoff—acknowledged by this record's state-side release on the Residents' own Ralph Records. Unlike the Residents though, Renaldo and the Loaf's music is even more discombobulated.

So much so, that I get the distinct impression that they're just two fully employed British dudes messing around in their spare time, making sounds for the hell of it—as opposed to the Residents, who seem to be making a more concerted artistic effort. (At what, I couldn't fathom, but I vaguely recall that they have some sort of manifesto lying around somewhere.) Neither approach is necessarily better than the other, obviously, nor is either important, as long as the end product sounds good, but the goofing off aesthetic here doesn't yield much that's worth revisiting, imo.

Even though towards the end, some of the tracks display more compelling songwriting ("Is Guava a Donut," "A Sob Story," and "Hats Off, Gentlemen!” form a good run), this album on the whole sounds like a pile of good musical ideas not yet put to good use. The bonus tracks like "Melvyn's Repose," which repurpose some of the tape loops heard in previous tracks to accompany more fully-realized songs, promote these suspicions, actually.

And the album has admittedly, in the thirty-odd years since its release, developed a commendable cult following, so maybe I'm missing something.

joan baez is pretty comfy and nice with some nice storytelling and imagery, but it felt sorta all too similar for the most part. i wanna relisten and pay better attention to the lyrical content to see if that makes up for it a bit more.

Flew back from FL to San Diego today and I wrote most of the trip... so I'm kinda tapped out on reviews for today. But the good news is I finally have a guitar at my apartment so I might actually get in the habit of consistently practicing.

In short, the Johnny Cash was as good as I expected, Opposite was nice and soothing but kind of felt bland in comparison to No Input Mixing Board which is the only other Onkyo I've heard. But maybe it'll grow on me if I dig into the style a big more. The Workman was pretty bonkers, something I'll have to take some time to wrap my head around because it was pretty free/abstract, with weird vocals, off putting instrumentation and a surprisingly lengthly runtime. Worth at least a chance if you're all about that stuff.

Anyway, one more and I'm on to my new chart!

>Jim O'Rourke - Fast Car (Live in Japan 9.16.2002)
A monolithic rendition of Tracy Chapman's infamous "Fast Car." While the overall concept of the performance—gradually transforming "Fast Car" into a huge excursion into drone and minimalist repetition—is amazing, I feel that the execution leaves something to be desired. O'Rourke, while certainly talented, is nowhere near as emotive or delicate as Chapman in his delivery. And an even relatively unemotional delivery of "Fast Car" is in my opinion, definitively self-defeating.

Nonetheless, it’s a pretty cool listen. O’Rourke plays well, and creates some cool events with his loops and drones.

Cornelius - Fantasma
[1998]

My first impression was that the production, and the somehow upbeat and happy melodies all over this, reminded me of Since I Left You. Which is a good thing considering SILY has slowly climbed its way up onto my favourite records of all time. It's seriously impressive how good on the ears this feels. Song-wise, the music is very energetic, fun and it never stands still; it's a record so dynamic it ends up feeling sweetly all over the place. I love it when an album gives you a lot to explore, and this is definitely a fresh find. Highly recommended.

The List of Albums I've Discovered Recently (TLAIDR)

> Hako Yamasaki - Tsunawatari (1976)

Japanese 70's psychedelic folk with jazz elements. 10/10, absolute perfection.

> yтpo - yтpo (2010)

Russian Joy Division-ish post-punk, but quite unique. Major points to the dissonant sounds and atmosphere, and danceable rythym. 9/10.

> Ryo Fukui - Mellow Dream (1977)

Japanese modal piano-based jazz. The first song is pure gold and actually made me cry, but I couldn't care less for the rest of the album. 7/10.

> Joy Division - Unknown Pleasures (1979)

After years of delaying it, I've finally listened to this album. It's actually far better than I expected, and does deserve to be considered a classic. While I can't give a 10/10 note because a few songs were somewhat lackluster, overall, this album deserves a 9/10.

Both Sides of the Brain > Future Development > I Wish My Brother George Was Here > No Need For Alarm
Alarm's got his best album art which makes me sad because it's a 7/10 in my book while everything else from that era's a 9. He just isn't as enjoyable or fun in it. Still not a bad album by any means.

Alright I’ll get to Egrets later, time for a new chart. Off to a weird but promising start.

[1/2]

Beach Boys - Carl & The Passions So Tough (1972)
>Pop Rock

After regrouping and releasing the fantastic “Surf’s Up”, the Beach Boys take a major step back. Gone is any self-awareness, the ambitious songwriting and the social commentary. Instead, these positive aspects are replaced by corny roots rock, faux-gospel and the band rambling a bit too long about transcendental meditation. Brian’s compositions are particularly disappointing.

“You Need a Mess of Help to Stand Alone” fails to make any impact one way or the other and “He Come Down” is, in my opinion the worst track he ever made. It’s the worst fucking aspects of gospel without essentially any positives. And “Marcella” sounds like a pretty blatant “My Sweet Lord” ripoff, except it’s about a masseuse instead of a spiritual feeling. The Beach Boys always had this nostalgic element to their music, one that… harkens back to a golden age. This certainly draws from the past but if anything it’s a reminder that things in the past were just as shitty back then as they’ve ever been. Probably the closest I’ve come to hating a Beach Boys album so far, this just doesn't have much going for it.

2/5
>>
>>77245276
Jorge Ben - Ben (1972)
>MPB, Samba

If you can listen to this thing and tell me Jorge Ben wasn’t the happiest man on the planet, you’re a damn liar. Almost every song on here is funky as hell and upbeat and just absolutely beaming with positivity. Jorge Ben’s voice just shines through the whole thing and when he hits those high notes it adds a whole different level of happiness. Most of these tracks are around the 2-3 minute mark so they stick around /just/ long enough to drill their way into your head. In a way, it sounds like some of these tracks are a result of the band just having fun and bouncing ideas off each other. It sounds like a party was happening for a majority of the recording. Even though there’s a lighthearted feel, the arrangements on this album are straight up brilliant. There’s strings, beaming brass, swanky guitar, lots of cool bass, some shakers and even a nice hint of cowbell. It’s all used perfectly. “Taj Mahal” is honestly one of the most brilliant pop songs I’ve heard, building off those awesome strings, funky bass and gooood loooooord Jorge’s scatting. It’s just so damn cheerful. Other standouts like “Caramba”, “Domingo 23” and “Morre O Burro” are spread throughout the album, ensuring the album feels consistent and cohesive. An absolutely brilliant piece of music and one that I’m sure will become a personal favorite.
