Just listened to them for the first time, and holy shit are they terrible. This is beyond Normie level music right here. You guys don't really like them, right?
Can we get a pleb stories thread going?

Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson, Blackfield discussion thread in here.
Best songs? Personal favorite album? What does mew think of this/these musician(s)?
Porcupine Tree is my favorite band.
Arriving somewhere but not here
Lips of ashes
Russia on ice
Don't hate me
The sky moves sideways
Sleep of no dreaming
The Watchmaker (SW track)
As poppy as it is, 'Trains' is my go to for down days.
As far as albums, Blackfield I is my favorite. I saw Steven and Aviv in seattle like 4 years ago, really intimate chill crowd. I probably ruined it because I was underageb&... Great time though.
PT was my favourite band for years. I mean, they still are probably, it's just I don't listen to them so much because no new material.
Fav songs: TSMS 1, Arriving Somewhere, Anesthetize, Russia on Ice, Hatesong, Even Less, Buying New Soul, Drown with Me, Chloroform, Trains, Stop Swimming, Lightbulb Sun, What Happens Now, Don't Hate Me...
I like SW's solo stuff but not quite in the obsessive way I loved PT back in the day. Probably the most important band getting me into music, I can trace my taste for pop rock, prog, ambient and psychedlia all...

Are turntables instruments?
Turntablism is the art of manipulating sounds and creating music using turntables and a DJ mixer.
John Oswald described the art: "A phonograph in the hands of a 'hiphop/scratch' artist who plays a record like an electronic washboard with a phonographic needle as a plectrum, produces sounds which are unique and not reproduced—the record player becomes a musical instrument."
Modern day turntablism is the closest hip hop music gets to art music.
Turntablism repertoire has written notation, creating a musical part or score for their compositions and pieces. Great examples are DJ Yoda & Heritage Orchestras Concerto, Martin Tetreaults musique concrete for turntables, Kid Koalas Your Moms Favorite DJ, eriKm and DJ Spookys Ice Music works.
Of course, the history of the turntable being used as a musical instrument though has its roots dating back to the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s when musique concrète and other experimental composers (such as John Cage, Halim El-Dabh, and Pierre Schaeffer), used them in a manner similar to that of today's producers and DJs, by essentially sampling and creating music that was entirely produced by the turntable. Cage's Imaginary Landscape No. 1 (1939) is composed for two variable speed turntables, frequency recordings, muted piano and cymbal. Even earlier, Edgard Varèse experimented with turntables in 1930, though he never formally produced any works using them.
This school of thought and practice is directly linked to the current definition of hlp hop-related turntablism, though it has had an influence on modern experimental sound artists and composers such as Christian Marclay, Kid Koala, Otomo Yoshihide, Philip Jeck, DJ QBert and Janek Schaefer. These artists are the direct descendants of people such as John Cage and Pierre Schaeffer and are often credited as a variant to the modern turntablist DJ and producer.
/mu/ would become a better place if we banned anyone who does the following:
>changes their opinion of an album following a critic's review
>makes fun of people's taste when they aren't as interested in music
>lets /mu/ change their opinion of a band/album
>believes listening to albums in full is the only way to go

Great talent or just eye candy?

His solo stuff under the name Black Pus is pretty good. He's defiantly a talented drummer. Not breathtaking or anything but he's got skills.

Best pop album of the 80s reporting in
Jesus H. Christ this is an uneventful, boring album. I mean, for background music while playing videogames, yeah, it's alright, but there's a ton of better stuff out there for that purpose. Namely, just about anything with guitars in it. The video for "Frontier Psychiatrist" is entertaining, though, even if the song isn't. Maybe I'm old-fashioned, or really used to guitar-driven music, but I just can't get into this group. This shit is way overrated.
that cute japanese hipster girl make a party tomorrow. i drop the playlist. she loves dream pop shoegaze, ambient...(idk more), and she´ really into it. i have no fucing idea about dream pop or shoegaze ... ideas? help /mu/
Why don't musicians host AMA's here on /mu/ like they do on reddit?
