Why are we going so fast again?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. This community is so inclusive that even communists and fascists coexist!>make chartshttps://www.neverendingchartrendering.org/>listen to tuneshttps://plug.dj/sdc-room-3-the-sequel>templates/listenalong scheduleshttp://dailymu-sic.weebly.com/>discordhttps://discord.gg/8exuEmGPreviously, on /daily/: >>72298534

I wish people used the discord more often, I have discord open like 24/7anyway, what should I check out next?
@shamepai:i am down to be a judge for the tourney

>When you wanted to release a really shitty album of horrible solo guitar improv, but the album art you make for it is too good to put with something so terribleHeck, now I have to actually produce something worth while.Darn it. :\
>>72316500You know, choof!
Wait how do I use my last.fm to fill in that chart?
>>72316498alright that is really cool art
>>72316451music for church cleaners is pretty solid!im in the discord but i haven't said anything yet desu
>>72316498you could just make it a monotone drone solo guitar improv wank, then it'd fit thematically at least haha
>>72316498not if I steal that album art and put it with my shitty onkyo album I made in like 20 minutes first>>72316643who?
>>72316643I am open to suggestions on some new music to listen to.
>>72316657thisif you send me some loops I can toy around with them
>>72316664>not if I steal that album art and put it with my shitty onkyo album I made in like 20 minutes firstbut that's the small version.I have the HD version, which is too big to post here.I used the 13000 pixel wide version of "The Night Watch" as a base.So ha.
>>72316665what kinda music you like, bub
>>72316679but I can still steal it anyways.so ha.
>>72316549>having last.fm>making charts>posting on /daily/get bullied
>>72316688Some of the stuff I have been listening to throughout the last month are in that chart. A lot of what usually ends up being listened to is mostly just stuff I work out to so it skews a lot.. That being said, would love more workout music, stuff like more aggressive hip hop (no Death Grips) and high energy music like Discharge.

i know I'm writing shorter reviews, but I got a midterm in 4 days okCausa Sui - Summer Sessions Vol 3>Psych rock, Stoner rock, BAND JAM THANK YOU MA'AM GET ON THE FLOOR AND A jam session album by some dudes in Denmark. Nothing innovative, but some decent(if lo-fi) recordings.First a mesmerizing gaze into a desert with electric guitar and saxophone, Eugenie expands into heavier rock while the sax is allowed some freedom. Red Valley focuses drops the sax and keeps the song structure-- not nearly as ear-grabbing as the first track. Manifestations of Summer is much more active (the very specific usage of the cowbell contributed to most of this rating). Decently enjoyable for a jam session and re-listenable, but not my greatest interest.7/10Tomita - Snowflakes are Dancing>Progressive ElectronicA romantic-era composition released in 1974, produced on one Moog synthesizer, arrangements of Claude Debussy's work.What can I say. It's silky smooth synth interpretations of already gorgeous piano works. I also learned a term for one of my favorite concepts in music composition: word Painting (or tone painting), writing music that reflects the literal meaning of a song.What was originally waterfall pianos or orchestral currents, is now Of course it can feel a bit corny at times, but it doesn't destroy the spaciness of the atmosphere. And I'm not talking Grouper AIA space, but the pioneer kind of space you'd expect from Disney.8/10

>>72316742This was a difficult choice. But not really lolIslaja - Ulual YYY>Free Folk, Psychedelic FolkStays mostly grounded with its sound but varied with (mainly jazz) instrumentation, making for a fairly accessible and consistent album. Vocals remind me of Bjork but quieter and less out there. Actually fairly comfy.7/10Melt Yourself Down - Melt Yourself Down>Afrobeat w/punk and a dash o noiseCompressed, screaming saxophones, and compressed, screaming men. Plus, a mix of noisy electronics and punk? Phew. This album is a fireball of energy, and a standout genre-wiseBut there's no breaks to it until the 6th track, and you're already drained by all the fuzziness at that point. Of course, the album is meant to be a full rush, but the melodies did feel a tad too repetitive side by side with each track. Oh, and the closer was pretty sick. With the opener and We Are Enough, they were my favorite tracks.6.5/10, will keep this album to revisit.

>hotel books - i'm almost happy here, but i never feel at homeyeah if you throw enough shit at the wall some of it will stick -the album. the vocal delivery, overwrought lyrics and mostly bland 'emo drone' music is boring and sappy except for the brief few occasions where it all comes together in the perfect storm of emotional emo, and the lyrics feel like they mean something and the music seems like a fitting backing. sure there's promise and potential but fuck at what cost?2/5>fire! orchestra - ritualv v hectic, noisy, tribal-esque. the drums and vocals are a highlight and the slower pieces seem to shake the foundations of the studio. in places it does however become sluggish and the orchestra doesn't feel like it's at its most creative - almost like it could slam out albums like this in their sleep.but i've never met a fire! i didn't like3.5/5>the clancy brothers and tommy makem - hearty and hellish!great live document of their singalong irish standards and transcendental between tracks banter - just a whale of a time and you feel like a part of a crowd which is what all great live albums do. probably one of the strongest cohesive efforts from the group as well4/5time to get blotto

A couple times a month I'll leave /daily/ and actually browse other threads on /mu/. Recently, I found one that was pretty interesting: Artists' "Bacon Number" or "Degrees of Separation". You think of two artists, then try to link the two together by artists they've either collaborated with or been in the same band with. It's pretty interesting when you have RYM as a tool. It's pretty surprising when you find out who For example, would it be possible to link Merzbow and The Offspring? Actually, it's pretty easy.Merzbow collaborated with Jamie Stewart on MERZXIU, and Jamie Stewart collaborated with Oxbow's Eugene Robinson on Sal Mineo. Eugene Robinson did the backing vocals on The Dead Kennedy's Frankenchrist, and the Dead Kennedy's member Jello Biafra did the backing vocals on The Offspring's Ixnay on the Hombre.So in orderMerzbow -> Jamie Stewart -> Eugene Robinson -> Dead Kennedy's -> Jello Biafra -> The OffspringNot actually that many steps only 5 degrees of separation.Naturally, I tried applying this to Fishmans. How can we relate Shinji Sato to other artists using the fewest degrees of separation?Well, Fishman's drummer, Kin-Ichi Montegi played percussion for Buffalo Daughter's album New Rock. A couple of the members in Buffalo Daughter were in the Doopees, and Yann Tomita from the Doopees, who arranged/produced Boredoms' Super Roots 8. From there, using Yamatsuka Eye, the possibilities are endless. We can use him to connect us to John Zorn through Naked City to Electric Masada, Mike Patton, and the plethora of jazz musicians he's collaborated with.Alternatively, we could've used EYE to draw a connection to Otomo Yoshihide, who collaborated on an "untitled" EP in 1996. From him, we can draw a line to Keith Rowe from their collaboration on "Thumb" to Keiji Haino, Jim O'Rourke, to Sonic Youth, to Thurston Moore, to Beck, etc etc etc.Kinda pointless, but it's something I thought I'd talk about real quick, because I think it's kind of fun.
>>72317568One I like isFishmans -> Kin-Ichi -> Buffalo Daughter -> Doopees -> Yann Tomita -> Boredoms-> EYE -> Zorn -> Mike Patton -> Deltron 3030 -> Del the Funkee Homosapian -> Ice Cube -> Dr. Dre -> Snoop Dogweed powers combine. Happy 4/20 /daily/!

In 1983, The Edge of U2 collaborated with Jah Wobble of Public Image Ltd, Jaki Liebezeit and Holger Czukay of Can, New York disco producer François Kevorkian, and composer Arthur Russell on the "Snake Charmer" LP. The title track would become a regular staple of influential New York City nightclub, the Paradise Garage. The album was engineered by legendary dub reggae studio engineer Paul "Groucho" Smykle and future The Smiths and Blur producer Stephen Street. It also featured additional musical contributions from jazz vocalist Marcella Allen, frequent Jah Wobble collaborators Animal, Ben Mandelson, Ollie Marland and Neville Murray, as well as original Public Image Ltd drummer, Jim WalkerTruly based.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJSK1wXmn4g
>>72317640didn't realize Merzbow was top 40
>>72317601>>72317604Only for samples and direct covers though. Other associations aren't accounted for.

>>72317720okay I made something out of the improv stuff, and released itdon't know if it is better or worse than before.It is, at least, more interesting than it would have been.
>>72317651hello hi.>>72317669Merzbow is extremely popular, and you know what I mean. The database is extremely limited and the code for finding related artists is flawed.Take this for example:http://www.whosampled.com/six-degrees/search/?artist1=Xiu+Xiu&artist2=MerzbowThis could've been done with ONE degree of separation, but for some reason it chooses three.A neat idea if you want to test two very popular artists but otherwise useless if you just take the time to do it manually.also this >>72317699>>72317661good trak. This is the kinda shit I'm talking about that's awesome for degrees of separation.>>72317712>it's possible to link Fahey and Fishmans due to Jim O'Rourke connectionshit on a dick. Nice find.
>>72317740you can probably link the whole entire "alternative" sphere of music together through o'rourke alone

>>72317871I was considering putting Musique Concrete as a tag too, you know, because I'm a good musician & shit.
>>72317814>I'd like to see what crazy connections people can draw from thisalright i'm going to take a break from this paper i'm writing at 2 am to try and link Blind Willie Johnson and Xxxtentacion. and i'm going to be expanding my horizons to anything listed on the "credits" box in rym, so liner notes/art/production is fair game.Janet Boye did art direction on 1998's Dark Was the Night compilation. Back in 1991, she did the cover art to Del the Funky Homosapien's I Wish My Brother George Was Here. Del the Funky Homosapien collabed with Gorillaz on "Clint Eastwood" in 2001. In 2003, Gorillaz collaborated with MF DOOM on "November Has Come". In 2014, MF DOOM was featured on Ghostface Killah & BADBADNOTGOOD's "Ray Gun". Just this year, Denzel Curry and BADBADNOTGOOD put out the "Ultimate / Sick & Tired" single. And in 2016, Xxxtentacion and Denzel Curry collabed on the "Raider Clan Killa" single.IT WAS A STRETCH BUT THE CONNECTION EXISTS

>>72317910>but did you loop a section or somethingno it's not a loop.
>>72317857>Damien Dubrovnik in top 4Sounds like a bath rug being dragged against your ear at one point during the album (guess which part)>Keith Row & Toshimaru Nakamura - BetweenRemember that one time when grandma came over uninvited and stayed for dinner, but mom had only cooked for 4 so you had to only have portion? Yeah, it's nothing like thatWas that enticing enough?Am I now a professional music journalist?
>>72317661what the hell lol
>>72317922>I chose a power electronic and Onkyo albumsometimes the album art really does give the game awayalso your metaphors triggered me because 1) id write something like that and 2) your second one is so fuckin stupid i laughedI'll try them in the future
>>72317970does that earn me an invite back into the clubhouse?
>>72317907hahaha holy hellI think covers aren't really a connection though. Only if the artists have collaborated or they are credited as a musician in an album. Sampling/covering doesn't count because the musicians never actually met.Blind Willie Johnson is pretty hard if not impossible to do this with, as not many people are known to have made contact with him, like, ever. I myself haven't been able to find many people (let alone musicians) who recorded with, recorded with, or even SAW the guy. Dude's a total mystery.HOWEVER.Jason Aldean once was featured on a Ludacris EP, and Ludacris has been featured on a Snoop Dog album. Meaning...Fishmans -> Buffalo Daughter -> Doopees -> -> Boredoms-> EYE -> Zorn -> Mike Patton -> Deltron 3030 -> Del the Funkee Homosapian -> Ice Cube -> Dr. Dre -> Snoop Dog -> Ludacris -> Jason AldeanThe world of music is beautiful, innit?
>>72317970no go eat lipstick you fuckin piece of paper
>>72318015most pre-war bluesmen are practically impossible to do this with, so ya gotta take what ya can getcan't fucking believe fishmans and jason aldean are legitmately connected though
>>72318058i just called myself a piece of paper>>72318005put on a trip and people are forced to acknowledge u
>>72318015Using Snoop is practically cheating lmao. Dude hops on anyone's track as long as they pay him nowadays. But I guess the Dre/Luda connection is pretty normal so w/e
>>72318091>Using Snoop is practically cheatingAnd using Zorn + Patton isn't?
>>72318061I thought for a second it might be possible, as on one of his comps someone named "Willie Harris" is attributed as a backup vocalist. From there, I could draw a lot of interesting connections, but it's actually referring to Willie B. Harris, his first wife. Easy mistake to make, but it got my hopes up so easily :/If ONLY I knew who recorded Blind Willie Johnson or who had a hand in the creation of his music I would be able to make those connections so much easier, but I don't even think that should really count, because those people aren't even really musicians and shouldn't be qualified.>>72318091So true but I love it. It opens up so many possibilities. Using EYE from Boredoms is practically cheating too, as that dude is in fucking EVERYTHING.>>72318097this is so true lol. Same with O'Rourke.
>>72318097Yeah, I guess that's true lol. Same could be said for O'Rourke if we're really gonna go this directionCool to see these connections either way idk
>>72318129the only thing i got is Paul Walker, Johnson's producer/talent scout/whathaveyou, who also discovered/produced Hank Williams.
For those trying to also make interesting connections: Another super OP artist is Johnny Cash.Not only has Cash collaborated with countless artists like Will Oldham, Nick Cave, and Tom Petty on his "American" Series, but he also was in The Million Dollar Quartet with Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis. Not to mention the Highwaymen with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Waylon Jennings. Shit's nuts.>>72318181Blind Willie Johnson connection to Fast & Furious confirmed.
>>72318181well i fucked up dude's name was Frank Walkeri guess Fast & Furious had a hold on meKanye's honestly pretty OP too. Even just with the staff on MBDTF you've got Kid Cudi, Raekwon, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Bon Iver, Pusha T, Swizz Beatz, RZA, John Legend, Mike Dean, Elton John, Alicia Keys, Drake, The-Dream, Rihanna, and fucking Chris Rock. Go into samples and you've got a whole other world to uncover.
>>72318315>Go into samples and you've got a whole other world to uncover.If we are including samples, DJ Shadow would like to have a word.
>>72318325>>72318315If we get to include samples, we now have a degree separation of two for every artist ever due to Since I Left You
Derek Bailey, Jamaaladeen Tacuma & Calvin Weston - Mirakle (2000)>free jazz, jazz-funkDerek Bailey's avant-garde improv noodling over some killer jazz-funk instrumentals. Tacuma on bass and Weston and drums is a killer combination, but I'm really not sure if they mesh well with Bailey. They're all wonderful individually, and occasionally they combine absolutely /perfectly/, but oftentimes Bailey's freeform style clashes with the tightness of Tacuma and Weston's rhythm section. It's a cool dissonance, but one that further blurs the awkward line between the avant-garde and the straight-up funk. Still, it's such a damn cool combinations of styles that the slight awkwardness can't do much to hurt it. This stuff mostly slays, and it's a really cool change in style for Bailey.3.0-山本邦山 - 銀界 (Silver World) (1977)>post-bopUltra-chill smooth-jazz that's not smooth jazz (I hope my delirious mind is getting it's point across). Yamamoto's flute work is inherently chill, it's calming, soothing, and above all else, it's deceptively complex. Certainly doesn't make for much of an engaging jazz album, though. The flute rarely serves as a powerful enough instrument to lead a jazz album, and it doesn't help that it's often pushed to the side to make way for the other instruments. But all the other performances are rock-solid, and it's almost better to take this as a folk album rather than a jazz album since it's structured in such an idiosyncratic manner, with the etheral flute as an almost new age-y lead instrument. Not quite the exceptional record I was expecting, but really cool in its own right. 3.0->>72318325christ, him and The Avalanches.
>>72317826I added a few of the less horrible improv tracks. Now it's actually album length!
Lynyrd Skynyrd - (pronounced 'lĕh-'nérd 'skin-'nérd) (1973)>southern rockMostly shitty southern rock that's redeemed by a couple of things. Firstly, the blues influence is actually mostly tasteful. It's not good, mind you, but it's done well and with a whole lot of respect for the genre. Secondly, fucking "Free Bird". I know how much of a cliche that song is, but that solo will be forever etched as one of the most triumphant moments in classic rock history, it doesn't get old. "Tuesday's Gone" is another decent track that happens to go on for far too long. The rest is dreck, frankly.2.0>>72318340aphex twin and chris rock now have a separation of 1

>>72318472Nicolas Jaar - Space Is Only Noise>Microhouse, DowntempoThis is a strange album, which is saying a lot. But strange is always interesting, especially when it's "modern composer crossing into electronic" strange.You'll probably notice the sample choices first. Something being dropped, the esophagus at work, water's movements (which I find always find gross when used as a sample). Jaar manages to combine discomfort with warmth in the first tracks of the Space Is Only Noise, and it really does feel alien. The album's cover art depicts the album's atmosphere fairly well; a downtrodden ground with who knows what foreign materials, and a sleeping child in a stroller. Complex life and complex mess, alchemized into grizzly textures that sound like they shouldn't work together. Sometimes, they don't.The sampling isn't quite clean, and feels like Pogo in that the aftereffects of being sliced into serviceable are quite obvious. Keep Me There and Problem with the Sun in particular has some drab and irritating vocal samples, but a sax thrown around the room shows that Jaar isn't hopeless when it comes to this kind of work.This whole album reminds me VERY much of Pogo -- the sampling, the arrangement, the pitch shifting. What's always me much about his work, while catchy and creative with its source material, there was always a manufactured and plastic impression left in each track. Jaar struggles with this same issue in this album; while his background knowledge assists in pulling from various sources for the album, but he doesn't smooth it out.The lyrics are also questionable. Space is Only Noise If You Can See is the biggest suspect here. Maybe if their delivery wasn't so one-dimensional, they'd grab me a bit more. It's not like I don't hate cryptic lyrics, but it really doesn't feel like there's something I haven't been told already by Jaar himself.
>>72318515Almost Fell is one of the more pleasant tracks, constantly filling the ear with warmth. Balance Her In Between Your Eyes is another standout, with the first actual pleasant choice of vocals (kinda).But in the end, grey doesn't grab me. Jaar is vivid at best, dilettante at worst. It's really missing something.6/10-------------------Still need reccs from:WoolitetheSoundEric tacksonBets? Yamir was mostly right after all memes? Jokes about my taste?

>>72318941Look I'm just trying to assemble a scathing critique here ok don't need to explain the decay of mp3's I already know all about that I just wanna know since I want to hear more added to it
>>72319063>decay of mp3'sI only use lossless codecs tho :0But it might have something to do with most of the top end of the frequency spectrum being suspiciously missing.
>>72319108I have a faint idea now but I'm sleeping also now

bumping with a non-review>information flash - ego murda soundnot a fan of this type of bleep but there were some danceable moments and it wasn't really unpleasant
>>72324255this is the opposite of what i wanted
>>72324714its ok im used to it
>>72322835Ballade cuntre lo Anemi francor is a fun album doe
>>72321322>post-feelist ritualswhat does this mean?
>>72318515Solid review, at least the first few sentences that I agree with haha. I never really noticed anything off about the sampling personally, but that's probably because I know nothing about music production. Am I allowed to rec EPs?
>>72324851it's a list of (mostly) ritual ambient or stuff connected to ritualistic music and it's made by a dude who calls himself post-feelist
Recommend me some music please
>>72324930Yasushi Toyoshima / Aki Takahashi - For John CageOlivier Messiaen - Vingt Regards Sur L'enfant Jésus (Yvonne Loriod)R. Andrew Lee - NovemberLou Harrison - Serenado
>>72324946>>72325009Thank you guys :)I've heard November, I quite like it but it's not one of my favourites.
>Jandek - Ready for the HouseI liked this. Jandek's delivery is really great. He evokes so much disturbed emotion through his creaking voice and his eerie lyrics. Sure, the guitar is very samey, but it works for this album. Like many others have said, this album paints a great painting of depression as bleak, uncomfortable, and ugly. I'll be revisiting this.3.0>Sicko Mobb - Super Saiyan Vol. 1I couldn't stop smiling throughout listening to this. It sounds like Chief Keef on happy pills, and I love it. It just kept getting more fun after the first song and onward.3.5>Beat Happening - You Turn Me OnThe guitar work on these songs was very good. There were some great songs on here like Teenage Caveman, Bury the Hammer, and Godsend. I wasn't a big fan of the vocals at first, but they grew on me quick. The whole album felt very warm and fuzzy, which I like. I'll be revisiting this too.3.0
I was dissapointed in the new Gorillaz tracks when they came out but now they've all grown on me Even the shittier Popcaan one fuckCan't wait for album version of busted and blue tho>>72324862Yeah sure you can recc EPs, but they better be pretty good or they'll end up skewed in rating against a full LPMaybe if Woolite wants to do an EP too, but if not then I'll just try my best to be fair>>72320794my b, a decade of Christian rock music has fucked with my objectivityBut really why is it so much like Evanansence>>72321322 Am now following this chart>>72325970good tastes my dude
>>72326450I mean a few EPs I had in mind definitely stand up to full EPs, and I don't know why they're not LPs in the first place.Anyway, I rec OPN - Commissions II because you've been sleeping on his EPs.
>>72326703*full LPs fmlAlso while I'm double posting, I'm listening to pic related since I saw the hype for it here and my friend urged me to listen to it.I'm enjoying it a lot. It kinda reminds me of early OutKast.
>>72326703Good choice, and I already have it downloaded too
woolite get tf in here and give me something to compete with OPN
i found a new album to meme around here and it's legit as hell
>>72324930find the album scaruffi has rated the highest and listen to it.You guys are really easy to rec to I swear.
>>72326923That looks like a very memey cover
>>72327062it's one of them "generic psych folk records that earns bonus points because it's asian"
>>72326923what is it, trip?
>>72327142free spirit by kim doo soo it's super pretty and the guy has a unique voice
>>72327161oooh, koreanill check it out
me and my buddys added this bot to our discord, and one thing he can do is rate anything we ask him to rate out of 10. so, from now on, i think im gonna use this to score albums for me
>>72327437its off to a fantastic start
>>72327437ask it to rate long season
>>72327451theres a bit of conflict here
>>72327472do not question the great birb
>>72327493birb knows all
Why is it that I only feel like listening to Yerself is Steam when I'm mowing the grass It just feels like the ultimate /mowing/core
>>72327517the birb would agree with that statement
>>72327517That's a strange coincidence, I always listen to mercury rev while mowing.
>>72327531wtf i love yerself is steam now
Goddamn it torts, your new album name is so freaking cheesy
>>72325970You sound like you would actually have a blast going through the entire JAndek oeuvre
>>72322126Is this from shitpostbot
>Some lady at work just said The Eagles are the greatest American rock band in history
>>72327632i like the mystery to jandek. i do want to check out more of him, but theres so much in his discog, idk where to go after ready for the house and six and six.
>yamir vs EthyBoy>Raein - Nati da altri padriAfter American Football, all emo-related things could basically be divided between the twinkly camp and the skramz camp and both styles are very predictable since bands that try to innovate upon these styles are rare (and the ones that try to innovate don't even necessarily succeed at making good music). In any case, I don't have a lot of patience with skramz, although you could do worse than this album. There's some tight riffs going on, undeniably, but it still all inevitably feels like a deja vu. Just a bit of a boring genre, really. 2.0>Nikhil Banerjee - Afternoon RagasI find it hard to differentiate between hindustani classical music artists, they all roughly do the same thing. What they do I like very much, however, and this album's among the more enjoyable ones in the genre I've heard. 4.0-ethy gimme an album and a picture to cancer the tournament up
>>72326450So are we doing EPs or full albums? Idc honestly >>72326804Love that this is becoming increasingly popular on /daily/
what is the best poseur album?
>>72327710J u s t>>72326894
>>72327710It's a solid album for sure. I don't consider myself a huge fan of hip-hop, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Btw i'm sorry I put lars horntveth on two separate tourneys it's just a very good album
>>72327832you wouldnt really be sorry if it really was
jazzlike if you agree>>72318578dont you already do that you just gotta livestream it now>>72318534updated chart when so i can place bets >>72327701wait are these out of ten because hahahahahaahah it was a meme rec btw
>>72327759Fuck sorry I'm on mobile today and didn't notice. Have you heard Mother Earth’s Plantasia yet?
>>72328204Partiallyif you want me to give full review sure i guess
>>72327701Cursed image incoming.Hard to pin your taste down...Have you heard Dadawah - Peace and Love?
>>72328245Yeah why not, be curious to hear your thoughts. I'm probably not gonna find bleeps that compete with OPN anyway
>>72328298updated, thankI actually didn't like Commissions I very much so this may be close, who knows>>72328173complete chart
>>72328274>>72328357these ones are probably gonna be a little less accuratewoolite (although commissions ii is better i feel the plantasia meme will get you)i believe in transgods meme trip upshamepai btw you stole my tourney rating system but thats ok
wow such arthttps://twitter.com/trayvontwo/status/855288236507250689
>>72328284i have not listened to that yetmy taste isn't terribly specific, im down for quite a lot of stuff
>>72328298>>72328357Commissions II is pretty different, so I didn't expect it to be a "free win" just because it was OPN. I wanted to see what you thought about it more than anything. Though to be honest idk how you could like GoD but not Comissions II.
>>72328450Figured so. That one has nice crossover appeal regardless
>>72328410accurate predictionsi shoulda rec'd plantasia, damn
>>72328410ty for believing in me
Dunno where I should start these all look like appealing contestants>>72328410no way i clearly used different colours sir but really I liked your system for not slapping huge numbers on the album art so gracias>>72328459I found it hard to commit to GoD for some reason. I guess I lean more towards Rifts, Returnal, Replica when it comes to OPN and not his newer stuff-- I'll go through it another time
>>72328554LP5 blew my fucken mind the first time i heard it do it
>>72328554Huh? I thought you rated GoD 8 and Rifts/Returnal a 7
>>72328603ok the garden of delete one was a mistake because i specifically remember rating that one on my phonebut I've added the other version of Rifts ratedReturnal is more like a 7.5 but i can't really portray that
>>72328689I mostly agree. Thoughts on R+7 though? That's my fav, sort of a continuation of Replica's sound
>>72328411i hate normie music so much"yeah bro. Just put 808s on anything. sounds dope.*
>>72328411>>72328921my friends used to bump to that one electro-swing song that was the background to every 2015 youtube videoi wanted to die
>>72328554>i found it hard to commit to godyou must repent
>>72328411>>72328921>>72328958oops i meant to link the actual tweet not the quote
>>72328411holy shit those presets
i just rediscovered an old cd i used to listen to a bunch as a kid. it was one of those local comedy kids acts.thing is, i forgot one of the songs on the cd was called pepe the nameless cowboy.debating uploading it at the risk of ruining their career.
>>72328411how does this get popularhes just hitting a hihat over and over againcan i do this and get rt's or do i have to be attractive
>>72328755Replica is what I'd call 10/10 album-- there's a shared load between each track, forming a very coherent set and leaving a deep impression overall. And the sampling paired with OPN's well known sound is super compatibleR+7 was more like a modern composition-- it restrained itself to communicate its ideas clearer. It felt a bit more sterile and was less memorable in some spots, even though the former trait is probably what Lopatin was going for.That and I literally only remember one track from R Plus Seven compared to the 7 landmarks of Replica>>72329029Be a tree and leaf me alone
>>72329136do i t
>>72329153you better be fucken listening to lp5>>72329147because normies are bad
>>72329153i'd consider replica and r+7 both perfect, but i'd have to agree that i enjoy replica more at this point. it changes often though.replica has possibly the best use of samples of the entire century.>>72329154it's called friends family and pizza. shit's lit.there's a ska track on it titled Pink Piggie Polka Pancake Picnic.
>>72329282waaaaa Imma have to listen to R+7 again cus I still remember the samples being the weak point
>>72329153Interesting. That's astute. I think he's even said as much about the difference between the two. It does wash over you in a way that specific parts aren't memorable, but I like that in this one case
>>72329282>Pink Piggie Polka Pancake PicnicI'm listening......
>>72329361ok since the cd ripping stuff isn't working, i'm gonna have to stream each track, record those streams, and then bootleg that shit together, so this might take a while, but it will be done.
>>72329407rod yer nuts
I think while compositionally R+7 is more interesting, it lacks the emotional impact of Replica and the incredible use of samples that he made with analog(!) equipment. I hate to use the word "forced", but I do feel like the midi strings an choir samples in R+7 have too much of a cheesy and false emotional impact. Still, I like the album.
>>72329428I MADE A PROMISE TO THESE PEOPLE
>>72329435>I do feel like the midi strings an choir samples in R+7 have too much of a cheesy and false emotional impact.i like the album so much because of how the aesthetic of cheesy new age is used in contrast to genuine composition and brief samples of human interaction, presenting a symbolic story of disassociation from society via the veil of social technology.
>>72329484Oh I totally get what he's going for -- although probably not at the level you do, but it doesn't always work for me.
>>72329484Yeah that's how I take it too. This balance between sincerity and honesty. Or more specifically, using cheap commercial sounds to make something un-commercially heartfelt
>Information Flash - Ego Murda SoundBad but also not good! I enjoyed "Early in the Mornin" but that's about it. Some of these were not only needlessly long but also done in a format of electronic I typically don't enjoy. And no one is surprised.4>>72329497looks like meme potential, but I hope it's actually worth it and not forced.
>>72329652it might be forced but i'm doing it anyway. they don't even say the word pepe in the song i was refering to but whatever it's fun.
>>72329652Next 3 days are gonna be so lit
>>72329344>That's astute.Lmao nice>>72329435I agree with this assessment.>>72329484I can see why you're a PC music/Vaporwave kind of guy lolThe reason you like it is the reason why the album suffers a bit, IMO-- restraint on sound for a theme.
>>72329497is there an rym entry for this? my 5s need a friend
I guess this is like half hip-hop b/c I'm not creative when discovering musicSnoop Dogg - Paid tha Cost to Be da Bo$$>West Coast Hip-HopFirst of all - what is this title? Second, why do I like Snoop so much? This is the 10th (fucking kill me) album of his I’ve heard and I’ve only found one that’s anywhere near Doggystyle and two other solid/consistent releases. I love him but hate him so much God damn. I can’t think of weirder mainstream hip-hop career. He has one of my all-time favorites in Doggystyle but after that it’s so hit or miss. After getting stuck in the collapse of Death Row, he cranked out a shitty album to fulfill his contract, ran to No Limit, which also fell apart and butchered 2/3 of his albums (his best had his own producers, who would’ve thought?). After that he was kinda never the same. All of his albums have a few awesome songs throughout the laziness though. Coming off his NL tenure, Snoop signed a new deal which gave him access to some of the genre’s top producers. Which is a huge step up from those sacks of shit at NL. As a result, the beats are way better and Snoop reinvents himself as a suave pimp rapper instead of whatever he was just before. “Lollipop” is prime Just Blaze, with flutes, smooth guitar work and off-kilter drumming complementing Snoop, Jay Z and Nate Dogg perfectly. “Beautiful” is amazing and “The One and Only” and “Batman and Robin” (fuck man) are classic Premier. And “Paper’d Up” has that Z-Ro “Mo City Don” beat I absolutely love (those flutes again). Otherwise, this album is filled with smooth but kinda unambitious beats. Overall, Snoop’s switch from hardcore to a pimp rapper is a nice change of pace. This album unfortunately drags (whhyyy do you insist on making 80 minute albums Snoop?). But his smooth flow and personality manage to carry most of the tracks in one way or another. Not quite prime Snoop but it’s definitely one of his better albums. 3/5
>>72327517>>72327558i always listen to yo la tengo while i'm mowing so i guess noise pop is just top tier mowing music
>>72330083>I can see why you're a PC music/Vaporwave kind of guy lolconcept can carry any album as long as the music fits it imo.>>72330114not yet. don't wanna force this too hard, but i love the album to death.almost done with the rip itself. still a ways to go before uploading.
gonna do a tourney soon but it's gonna have some serious restrictions... get yr obscure recs readyyou can reserve now if you desire
So, my house doesn't have any electricity and it's been like that for 30+ hours and I'm staying at a friend's house so the tourney will have to wait (I'm still doing it)>>72329652Nigga i need some cool ass template, but send it to me on discord bae
Has anyone ever done a tag-team tourney? Thinking of doing something like that at some point.
Just got banned from RYM, reasoning being:>You can only have one account to rate the same things. Decide which you want to keep. What the fuck? I've literally never had a second account, except for when I moved all of my ratings to another one using the subscriber feature, but even that doesn't really count because my old account "papasmurph1" links to I_AM_FISH anyways. Is there someone I'm aware of that's copying my ratings or something? What the hell is happening?>>72330473I'll do it, but idek how many people are even gonna participate, so we should probably figure that out first.>>72330449reserved
>>72330535i did a team based one at one point, but never a directly tag team system for the whole thing.>>72330537that's lame.
>>72330537All ManyLotsIt must be just some kind of chart and idk how we gonna add themMaybe make it for 3 teams of 15 or something but idk if we can get that much people>>72330449ReSer ving
>>72330571I'm retarded, I thought tag team just meant a team of two. That's what I meant.
>>72330591it does in my mind.
>>72330537maybe someone is copying all ur ratings>>72330535that sounds cool
All fixed! >>72330537Apparently my friend's account was showing up as a copy of mine for some reason? He doesn't use RYM anymore anyways so idk why this would be a problem.>>72330579>45 peopleI really don't see this happening. Maybe I'll make one for 3 teams of 10 when I have the time and we can shuffle people around as needed if one side is less even than the others.
>>72330621ah, apparently it means "alternating" teams like in wrestling
>>72330704that'd be fun too.
>>72330449Gonna reserve a spot now in case
>>72330449Get me on this
>>72330449i can obscure
>>72330449reserve yes me

now it's time!welcome to my new fucking tourney, with restrictions so ridiculous you'll sorta squint at this post for a few seconds after reading them! for the first round, the restriction is as follows:take the name you post with around here and choose either the first letter or the last letter. THEN recommend me an album 90 minutes or less that is tagged on rateyourmusic.com with at least one genre that starts with the same letter you chose! if you feel the need, post the letter along with the rec when you rec. i'll be verifying each individually.you can find my taste at rateyourmusic.com/~tripupgood luck and :0!
