What does /mu/ think of Halsey? And of course, other artists of a similar caliber, i.e. Twenty One Pilots, Melanie Martinez, Lana Del Rey, Troye Sivian, etc.
Tryhard. Her album made me want to listen to The Neighbourhood, and I don't even like them that much, but better than Badlands. It's ethereal and powerful at times, but it doesn't pull it off well and comes across as forced.
Holy fuck this is beautiful
Hey now, I personally ripped and uploaded this for a sharethread a few days ago. I actually wrote a review for it and they posted it on their facebook wall, I was so happy, though they had already done the same with my review for Messe, which I think was better written, to be honest.
Anyway I think it doesn't count since I love everything Ulver--
Is it just me or does the production on this album kinda suck?
Name a modern folky band that has starts with a O or something
Do you find that sometimes you appreciate an album more when you listen to others?
Bought Isn't Anything after listening to Loveless, thought it was absolute shit.
>listens to more noise pop (JAMC, Mercury Rev, Stereolab etc.)
Think it's pretty good.
I believe that after you listen to a certain genre for a while you start to understand what tropes define that genre and grow to appreciate them. Thus you become more prone to enjoy more albums within that genre. It has happened to me tons of times but I'm not sure if any of you feel the same way.
>how do I into The Beatles
>tfw find obscure japanoise artist with about 1000 viewers and forget his name or what his video on youtube looked like and i'll never hear his music again
>tfw everyone forgot about this
I was here the day this dropped and everyone was going crazy for it. I gave it a listen and didn't care for it at all.
I'm listening to it again now and I fucking love it, especially the harsh noise parts. The production is on point.
Does /mu/ still like this?
No, because Fantano hates it and /mu/ drones him more than they like to admit.
Anyways, good album. Nice variety of songs, good lyricism, some very novel ideas, beautiful use of melodies and noise.
Now after the dust has settled my opinion on the album is that it contains a few amazing song (Persistence, Grave Within A Grave, Drain Counter) and a lot of mediocre ones. It definitely does not live up to the standards he had set with albums like MTI, The Weeping Worm and Third Side of Tape where there was just one great song after another. It's a good album but not a great one. 6/10
Post what Windows XP default icon you used from pic related and what you're currently listening to
>Wild Nothing - Life of Pause
im aware you could personalize it, i remember getting windows xp so i could have itunes back when the first gen ipods came out. no poseur here my friend.
Why does /mu/ never talk about this guy. He has two really good albums. Kinda reminds me of MBDTF era Kanye.
what does mu think of this album?
Would anyone care to explain what exactly makes Death Grips 'memey'? I see a lot of people complain about how memey their music tends to be but I don't really understand what they mean by that.
What other artists/bands do you consider to be memey?
What happened to this guy? I don't think he's really a bad guy he's just an asshole
/mu/ how does one actually go about getting some attention on a project without throwing down big bucks for features or ads? Is shilling on bandcamp/soundcloud threads really the most hope? We're tryna get some buzz around our music/clothing brand (pic related) but seem to be lost in the ether and cant afford any fancy promotion.
Connections. You need to play a ton of gigs.
Also, image is far more important than talent. Make sure you have a frontman with a persona of some sort. Also make sure to hire a graphic designer for every release, as cover art is how things sell, not the actual music.
Remember, if you want to be big, you have to be a brand, not a band.
How does fags like Autechre sell a lot of records when their aesthetics are default and autistic as fuck?
>plain colour cover
>badly painted circle
>another plain colour cover
>a fucking ae
>badly spaced words
Or is that because of the connections?
