Don't really ever see modern psychedelic music discussed on /mu/ aside from Tame Impala.
What are some recent releases in the genre that are worth listening to?
Been listening to All Them Witches - Lightning at the Door lots this year and really digging it. Other stuff like Colour Haze and more stoner rock-esque stuff like Samsara Blues Experiment too.
The live album All Them Witches put up from Belgium is outstanding. Not fond of their last studio album, but in the context of the live show (with the tracks from Lightning) it's great.
Why do you think they suddenly went post rock by the mid 1980s? They were having such a streak with the whole new wave/synthpop thing earlier?
Talk Talk, led by singer Mark Hollis, formed in England in the early 1980s. From the start, Hollis cited jazz and classical artists like Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Béla Bartók and Claude Debussy as major influences. But Talk Talk's first two albums, The Party's Over (1982) and It's My Life (1984), did not readily reflect such influences; critics compared the band to contemporary new wave groups, especially Duran Duran. Hollis partly attributes the shortcomings of their early music to a financial need to use synthesizers in place of acoustic instruments.

Is anyone else pissed off all the time by 99% of all music?
>shallow obsession with personalities
>celebrated by ignoramuses who know nothing about music theory
No because I'm not a try hard pseud and I can enjoy popular music for what it is and then go on and read some literature or something and enjoy that just as much.
But I guess those sorry "ignoramuses" are all beneath you and nothing about their lives or trials could at all be interesting to such an enlightened Intellectual such as yourself.
Remember when /mu/ didn't hate Blur?
Who would win in a fight?
Probably half the reason it was seen as mediocre desu
Opinions on Kid Koala?
As a DJ I am in awe of him, some of the best turntable skills I've seen, especially when you look at what he's doing using just vinyl. A lot of DJs have transitioned to CDJs and controllers but he's still rocking absolutely solid sets on vinyl.
His version of Moon River is my favourite DJ performance ever - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjFi4MHO_go
How do I write songs like him?
Name a riff heavier than this one.
>Protip: You can't.
Also, general heavy metal thread
from the comments of the video:
"Feels like a fucking truck hit me in the face"
>"they were really influential" - can't name a single band that emulated them
"Every song we've ever written was a rip-off of a Lou Reed song," Bono once announced from the stage, while bringing Reed up to sing on a duet of "Satellite of Love," a staple during U2's Zoo TV tour.
Patti Smith is the reason that punk music exists.
>I've been waiting for a guy to come and fuck me in the ass
what did he mean by this?
>feel the pleasures of a homo man
what did he meme by this?
>and I dont see no confusion ANYHWEREEEEEEEEEE
