Playing a gig for the first time and idk where else to ask about how to even act at a gig. The genre is indie and just the though of it is scary.
We have to play 5 originals but the thing is that we do t have much songs so we planned playing one cover at least.
Someone told me to play the covers at the end of all the songs we are supposed to play. Anyone here who can show me the ropes around indie gigs?
This shit's the most relevant and honest thing of the decade, fuck your weak nigga hip hop and dead indie scene
What are some other albums that are 2deep4fantano and /mu/?
Has anyone actually bothered to watching some interviews with Kendrick regarding this album and the message he was giving with this album? Its deff not what it says at face value.
Why are Pearl Jam not recognized as one of the best rock bands of there 90s? There is no other mainstream rock band that progressed as much over the course of four albums in the 90s, their output is infinitely better than Nirvana's and Radiohead's (poor man's "experimental" music) and their first four records are near enough 10/10s.

>I-I'm not like those Pulse Demon plebs
>I'm a REAL Merzbow fan!
What music do you listen to when you're smoking pot, /mu/?
And don't rec me fucking Pink Floyd. What music do you actually listen to?
>Kid A, 6.5/10
Is he just a contrarian?
Spit a verse, anon.
Made this some time ago:
There was a thread on /mu/ one day
A kid made it and he said hey
Check my shit taste right the fuck now
I did and said, fucking shit, wow
Son, damnit, ya better lurk more
But he replied he couldn't find anything better than Paramore
So I looked at him right in the eyes, and oy vey, uh, guess what
it was Marcel Foley
When his cover was blown he went out the closet and ran
Tripping on towels, crusty socks with his dick in his hand
To this day to San Diego I never went the fuck back
And honestly, Paulstretchin'...

I'm starting to like this album, I'd appreciate if you guys could rec me stuff based on it
So I was watching this video that discussed how relativism in modern art was objectively deteriorating the quality compared to the artists of old and wondered if the same applied to music.
What do you think? Does music still hold a higher standard than modern visual art or are albums like Trout Mask Replica the equivalent of a Pollack painting?
>So I was watching this video that discussed how relativism in modern art was objectively deteriorating the quality compared to the artists of old and wondered if the same applied to music.
IIRC the value of art is based on your personal reaction and emotional response. You can work technical appreciation in there too.
I mean, how do you compare two people's personal expressions? Does complexity validate one more than the other, and if so at what point?
If complexity=objective greatness, then why doesn't somebody just compose to most technical piece possible? Or would that not be a true artistic expression and more like a construction project?
Now that the settlers have dusted, what's the consensus? Where does it place in TWY's discography? In the general pop punk genre?
It places in nowhere in pop punk. The Wonder Years stopped being pop punk after Suburbia. They are now indie emo. There was nothing poppy about this record. That's the problem with 90% of today's pop punk. There is no pop. The only pop punk bands that is sticking with the style and making it their own is Neck Deep and State Champs. "Life's Not Out To Get You" was perfection.
Neck Deep are literally garbage, saw them as the support for TWY on The Greatest Generation Tour
That said, ever since that show I went off the Wonder Years, was just really obviously scripted stage banter which rubs me the wrong way.
Song For Earnest Hemming Way and Thanks for the Ride are great, but the rest is somewhere between forgettable and straight not very good. Stained Glass Ceilings is totally shit.
Oh no I've seen live videos of Neck Deep, they can't sing their songs. But I'm talking about their music. I find it to be the catchiest pop punk band out there right now. Their melodies and harmonies are the top notch.
Have any of you listened to this with an alternate tracklisting?
Yeah, I cut it down a lot to this:
1. Ultralight Beams
2. Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1
3. Pt. 2
8. 30 Hours
9. No More Parties in L.A.
11. Real Friends
12. Wolves (Feat. Sia and Vic Mensa)
does listening to certain kinds of music have some sort of skill ceiling. like say jazz, classical, and or no wave.
yeah but i heard they crap out.
just get an itouch and swap out music as you listen to it. You'd be surprised you once you find out you don't listen to all your music library all the time
