ITT: essential pop punk albums.
Old, new, whatever.
> inb4: "pop punk is shit, OP is a faggot"
Listened to some of them, the emo ones at least.
I'm cool with the afros and sundresses and all that. I'm probably one of the most pro black (white) people you'll meet. I even like some of the music (erykah badu, outkast). But this kendrick lamar/j cole/kamasi washington/robert glasper/mos def/talib kweli/shabazz palaces shit makes me cringe. For one thing it's corny as hell, and for another thing I don't like how it seems to tell other black people they need to be a certain way to be pro black.
IRL Vinyl 3x3 Thread! Minimal reception late last night, reposting shamelessly for great discussions.
Let's follow a theme.
Pick 9 records from your collection that suit the following characteristics:
Paul McCartney – Sweet Thrash
Bought in Burlington VT for $9. Still sealed, it could be sold for roughly $1,500.
>most important/significant to you personally
Slowdive – Souvlaki
Saw them live in Montreal the day before major brain surgery, and the band signed the record after the show, wishing me good luck with the procedure. It was their first show in Quebec and they were met warmly. "Best wishes."
>nicest package [design, colour, etc.]
Explosions in the Sky – Take Care, Take Care, Take Care
This double LP folds out into a house, and side D has an awesome wooden floor etching. Pretty nice!
Fin – The Nus
A noise 7" bolted between two sheets of corrugated plastic. It's great. Basically sounds like dragging concrete over asphalt.
>pleb/guilty pleasure item
Iron Maiden – Killers
My dad's favourite meal. He boasted that he could play it straight through on the drums when he was a teenager, and it was his first music gift to me. I like it unironically.
>local band [or an artist from your country if not applicable]
Solids – Blame Confusion
A two-piece punk band from Montreal. They played a $10 show recently and I got the record signed. Great guys!
Goldmund – The Malady of Elegance
This record only gets better with each listen. The surface noise makes it endlessly better than a digital copy.
>notable recent purchase
Alvin Lucier – I Am Sitting in a Room
An interesting sound experiment from the early 80s that aims to represent a room's acoustics by having a small speech played into a room and recorded again, multiple times.
>wild card; anything you want to talk about
Current 93 – I Have a Special Plan for This World
A spoken world album I find hair-raising. It's the most eerie record I own.
