Pic related, although in all honesty he is fantastic.
Yes, he is Pop but:
>Creative and personal lyrics
>Amazing live act.
>The musicians in his band are super talented and they all sing.
>Only a Debut album and already very big.
Either way I expect /mu/ to hate him and tell me why I'm wrong and shit. What other artists do you like that /mu/ hates?
Hozier, son of a local blues musician, was born in Bray. He attended St. Gerard's School before he began studying music at Trinity College, Dublin, but dropped out midway through his first year to record demos for Universal Music
don't care for some industry plant tbqh
rather listen to sufjan stevens
Has anyone seen Oneohtrix Point Never on his current tour so far? I saw him at the Ottobar last night and thought it was pretty fantastic. His mic was a little too loud but overall pretty great. Also Jason Lescalleet's set was pretty great too.
I was there last night too. Great show, and yeah Jason Lescalleet was incredible.
Did you wait nearly an hour outside in the big ass line? I was beginning to wonder if that was a part of the performance 'cos the Ottobar typically is punctual about door times.
Why do classical/jazz composers' music get better when they get older, while while musicians of other genres get worse?
Because those genres depend on more so on skill of composition, which composers tend to hone with age. Other genres depend a lot more on emotion, which tends to dry up the older and more detached you get. Not to say there isn't some crossover, as there are many emotional jazz/classical pieces and other well composed pieces in other genres, but this is just my take on it.
General /Psych/ thread. Trying to get into this genre, any advices welcome, otherwise let's get a general going.
don't start a fucking general when you have zero knowledge u fucking idiot
don't post again until you listen to atleast 20 of those albums
only the 60's are real

Anyone else here think that m b v is better than loveless?
It's like the best possible following to that.
No. But it's still really good. It sounds like the logical continuation of Loveless without really sounding dated. Loveless still sounds like it lives in a world of it's own and so does this.
>Find used Beats Solo 2 for $55
>Think they are fakes
>/mu/ tells me they are fake
>Fuck it, yolo.
>They come today
>mfw They aren't fake
Life is good niggas.
>inb4 Fucking nigger for buying them
People said they are good for hip-hop.
Hey /mu/, maybe you can help me.
Four years ago, while looking for music to listen to during my summer road trip, I downloaded an EP that I saw in a random website's "top 10 new EPs" or similar. It wasn't particularly good or anything but had a cool surf vibe and I have great memories associated with it, the thing is I completely forgot the band's or the EP's name and it's impossible to find in my library without clues.
Clues are :
>sounds surfy, but with more electronic elements than regular surf rock
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Aside from 2 shitty songs, pretty /comfy/
Dear Marie, I Will Be Found, Badge and Gun are underrated as fuck. My girlfriend only knows Paper Doll but the rest of the album is solid
I want to write an album of songs as good as this. Where do I start?
continuously write music for years and years, then theres an incredibly slim chance you might. but t b h probably a waste of time already depending on how old you are/how much musical training you already have.
It's a fucked up world
A fucked up place
Everybody's judged by their fucked up face
Fucked up dreams
Fucked up life
A fucked up kid
With a fucked up knife
>people really think this guy is a genius
>Music to help cope with crippling depression
Pic related. Need more recs for this feel
If you dislike this because its popular, you are a pleb
Also, if you think this is worse than their earlier stuff, you are most likely a basement dweller pleb
It's doesn't challenge my ears. The riffs and melodies are not very interesting. Like, there is deep talk, there is small talk. This one is like a small talk. Shallow, not interesting, the riffs aren't clever. Real /mu/ doesn't care about popularity, but quality is quality.
rec i suppose
grayt chart OP, what's your favorite Hecker?
How do I get into understanding genres? I honestly cannot tell what something is half the time I hear it. I can pinpoint a few broad ones but I can't further categorize them into subgenres. I absolutely don't know what to call most things that sound like "indie".
Is there a point that I should start and work my way up? Is knowledge music history a needed prerequisite? Do I need to train my ear to recognize time signatures and other components of music theory? (I'm pretty much tone deaf)
