/mu/ try and name an album that creates a better atmosphere than this album. The second this album starts you are enveloped immediately.
What does /my/ think about this release? I heard good things, giving it a first listen.
Decent but a bit uneventful. I love when artists try something new and this just seems to fit in the shoes that bands like Best Coast and Peach Kelly wore.
where do you stand?
How the fuck are you weird if you listen to MBV, Bjork, The Smiths, The Velvet Underground, Charles Mingus, Aphex Twin or Joy Division.
Literally EVERYONE has heard of or listens to them, they're normalfag.
Remember when Iggy Pop made a song with Sum 41?
this sellout bastard...
every time I hear that car commercial that plays "search and destroy" I fucking seethe
mid-90s to early 2000s was the golden era of hip hop
you cant prove me wrong
as always I win
But all of the good albums came out early to late 90s...
Which track titled 'Come Together' do you like the most?
What does /mu/ think of Skid Row? I notice that "Slave to the Grind" is often cited as one of the best hair-metal albums ever.
I can play guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, piano, synth, and I have some hand drums for percussion and I'm pretty good at all of them but in my 10 years of playing, I've never written an *actual* song. Aside from always getting to the final stretch and either deciding it's not good enough or has lots it's feel or just plain getting bored, I feel like the number one thing keeping me from finishing something is that I have no fucking idea what to write a song about.
I can write some really beautiful pieces of music that the few people who've heard have said are really good, but it eventually just turns into a bunch of chords and notes to me with no real idea behind it. I can sing decently but I'm abysmal at writing lyrics. I never have any idea what to write about or how to make a song interesting, relatable, and memorable instead of just being a typical instrumental track.
What do I do? It's not like I have a boring life or anything, but I can never find anything that makes me want to sing about it

It's a shame people dismiss her so easily. Though, Sapokanikan is probably the worst way to introduce the mainstream audience to her music.
Her voice was also pretty shaky, maybe she was nervous? (it was the same for Anecdotes)
Either way I wouldn't expect a Jimmy Kimel audience to be very receptive to this kind of music.
Should I give this guy's solo work a try?
Feminized, pussified white people rock. Gay. With a dyke horror on bass. Came to see what K. Cobain like about this band. Not much, from what I can see. He was severely disturbed... and also gay, in the end.
I want to get into Tom Waits but I don't know where to start. Do I just go through his discography in order?
I heard Ruby's Arms and thought it was amazing.
I just picked my guitar off my shelf for the first time in like 6 months, I bought it meaning to learn it but never got around to it, and Jesus Christ.
How the fuck do people fret their guitar(? is that the correct terminology?)really fast and shit. I play a single note and then take like 5 seconds switching chords.
What's an easy way to start learning for real?
practice frequently, and practice deliberately. Pick two random chords that you know and practice switching between them. Do it slowly at first, preferably with a metronome, and then speed up--if you learn to walk, you'll inevitably learn to run. If you find that switching with particular chords is difficult, then put extra time and energy into them, isolation the difficult bits and refining them is key.
I recently was given a banjo. I don't know shit about strings. I picked up the Essential Elements books. They're intended for school band kids, but they're fantastic. They make them for p much ever instrument.
That's what I'd recommend if you can't swing actual lessons.
Though, I was in band class for 7 years, albeit in percussion, so it might be a bit different for me.
