Any of you guys heard of this? Band is called Neutral Milk Hotel. Such an underrated masterpiece

Pavement and GBV is just great fucking songwriting without any aesthetic/image/lifestyle/sexy frontman lead, of course they haven't resonated with a millenial generation that prefers the latter
>>
>>77426602
I guess it's a combination of the frenetic rhythms (i.e. Memory Machine, Gyroscope, and Girl O'Clock) with the existential and anxious lyrics. It really captures that feeling of being a young adult and dreading the future

Also Pavement have one of the best discogs ever in my opinion. pic related isn't even my favorite album of theirs (that would be Wowee Zowee)

i disagree. keep it like a secret does have some of their best songs, but as an album listened to from start to finish, perfect from now on is their most cohesive album. every song on it is great, and they don't sound like they could be on any other album. keep it like a secret feels more to me like a collection of really good songs than a unit, like perfect from now on

Perfect Sound Forever [Drag City, 1991]

Husker Du for the age of indie irony--hooky grunge as guitar power, turnoff splatter as loyalty test, mad drummer as mad drummer. All on 10 inches of 45-r.p.m. vinyl-only sporting seven titles and four songs. A-

Slanted and Enchanted [Matador, 1992]

Though no outsider wants to believe it, they're not just the latest scruffy rumor. And though no insider wants to believe it, they're more well-schooled than inspired--skilled, gifted, of enduring artistic value, condensing a decade of indie thrashing about into a two-year recording career that takes off with their debut album. Always good at both tune and noise, they sacrifice you-know-what for you-know-what now that they're thinking about quitting their day jobs, and as you'd expect, the content is formal: noise doesn't give up without a fight, often it fights hard, sometimes it fights dirty, and tune digs where it's coming from. Yielding a message complex enough to offer hope that the lyrics--more bemused than enraged, more depressive than despairing--will catch up. A

Watery Domestic [Matador EP, 1992]

The rumor that the title means "watered-down, not wild" would bewilder music-lovers outside Indieland. Though it does comprise four distinguishable, hummable songs, it isn't anything the big guys would call pop music, just a dandy outro for Drag City's EP compilation. And since nobody this good lives in Indieland forever, it raises the question of what they'll do for an encore. As they brag, admit, or observe, they've got "so much style that it's wasted." Which means the content problem is staring down their throats. A-

Music critics are mostly sheeple, they all follow the same trends.

Dickride punk and New Wave
>80s
Dickride alternative rock and African music

Dickride indie rock

And so forth.

Fugazi is post hardcore and Breeders were power pop-y alternative. Just because Dischord is an indie label doesn't make Fugazi sound like the Silver Jews, Pavement, or Archers of Loaf. Breeders were on Electra in the US so no indie cred whatsoever.

I've always wondered what Archers of Loaf is about. Personally I can only picture a group of 20~ish topless males wearing face-paint and prancing around a fire, singing holy tributes that are dedicated to a sacred loaf of bread.

Any excitement for their upcoming album? What a Time to Be Alive brought some energy despite the on-the-nose lyrics. Erasure feels pretty low effort though.

man, i went through a huge Keep It Like a Secret phase in 2016 and a huge Perfect From Now On phase last year, maybe it's just because it's more recent but I believe that PFNO is the more impressive album, while KILAS is the more pop-sensible album. They're both incredible.

Modest Mouse is also my favorite band. Currently listening to Weekends of Sound by 764-HERO, can anyone else recommend some Olympia core? also been listening to These Are Not Fall Colors by Lync a bit too lately so throw some recs at me!

here's last seven days so you can get an idea of my tastes, currently downloading >>77426563 to listen to for the first time.

Pretty shocked this record hasn't been posted yet. If you're into emo, post-hardcore, the Olympia scene, K Records, please give this album a go. It's just this swirling lo-fi vortex of feedback and angsty yelps. Kind of like winter's answer to Cap'n Jazz. Doesn't help that they were a big influence on early Modest Mouse
