>tfw you sold an instrument to make rent
why are french so pleb but having so much good bands?
Why are you even using that word? And in fact, what does it mean in this context, anyway?
In literature and cinema they have made lots of things that could be considered "high art" so I don't know what the fuck is your point here.
my point is that 90% of the population only listens to shitty french pop rap like Black M or garbage EDM, and most of the rest are born in le wrong generation. Then, all music on the radio, the television, on TV adds, is shit.
I already visited several countries, including USA, England, Sweden, Marrocco, Brazil... And french are the tasteless people, by far. For christ sake, the Swedish radio played some Todd Terje and Massive Attack.
Kanye West is the only artist from the modern period that will still be remembered 1000 years from now.
hhaha calm the fuck down
>mfw ween was my favorite band in high school and i turned on a ton of my stoner/misfit friends onto ween
i still love them. i've never been so invested in a band.
you do have a point OP, ween definitely appeals to open-minded/drug culture teenagers.
at least i wasn't listening to metalcore and straightening my hair like a lot of the fags at my high school tho, right?
Gonna start a share thread. Here ye go.
Giuseppe Ielasi & Howard Stelzer - Night Life
I wanted to hear it, and it was a pain to find. Now in the archive. Share anything you want, preferably anything sort of obscure. Obviously.
I'll share this one again, people should definitely check this one out
Shackleton - Discography
>band from 1998-2001 featuring a couple members that went on to form Thee More Shallows, most of the tracks from two albums (The Inland Mile and Aeroplanes), an EP and songs from compilations
>dreamy indie rock, slowcore, Thee More Shallowscore
so so so good
and if you're looking for obscure stuff, here's some noise I ripped recently - kinda weird stuff but I definitely enjoyed it
Genital P-Orange - Recycled
>noise, sound collage, a bunch of neat sampling and sources mixed with various amounts of noise
>Chef Boyardee samples within the first 10 seconds so you know it's good
there's some noise in the second track from the player, I might try and rip it again to fix that
Can /mu/ recommend some exotic music? Romanian, japanese, tribal, south-american, anything you like. I feel this could make an interesting thread.
I shall contribute
Desert blues, exotic take on a classic form
sick cuban music
Traditional music from my country (NZ)
Let's talk about PC Music
Thoughts on it as a whole?
GFOTY - Christmas Day
A. G. Cook - What I Mean
Spinee - Pretty Green
A friend of mines new albums pretty dope what does /mu/ think?
>also general bandcamp thread
>ambient, drone, glitch

>death pop / electroclash / vocals are taken from cassettes of kids yelling in the 80s
This is really good so far, wish it was pay what you want though!
ITT: Post a genre you don't like or don't understand, and others rec you music to get into said genre.
When will /mu/ finally learn that techno, house, breakbeat, industrial, ambient, disco, ràp, ambient etc are their own distinct genres like rock, country or jazz?
They all have different histories, influences, stylistic origins, compositional structures and different instruments with a multitude of different styles, subgenres and intentions.
Is the distinction really that important? Granted, Electronica and Eletronic music don't tell us much, but when someone says "IDM" or "EDM" you at least have somewhat of an idea what they are talking about.
>Is the distinction really that important?
Of course it is, imagine there never being a thread about shoegaze, emo, 3rd wave post-rock, thrash or black metal ever again on /mu/, only rock generals.
Feminist punk music is fucking great
I am loving this movement.. it only makes sense, men had their turns in the 70's-80's and it was bullshit. But with women, the struggle is real and the message is clear.
Are there any videogame soundtracks /mu/ considers worth listening?
This one and pic related. Solar Fields did it
There are a lot of video games with great music, but not a lot of great video game soundtracks if that makes sense.
Not many soundtracks that you could listen to on their own from start to finish on top of my head.
Fallout 2, Grim Fandango, Unreal Tournament and the Tropico soundtracks
If you could sleep with any album cover, which one would it be?
ITT: People that you want to see do a Red Bull Music Academy lecture.
This motherfucker right here. I could listen to him ramble for hours on end.
I love James but it'd pretty much be an hour of "like, you know..." I'd still watch it for the humor though
Fuckin A. He actually did something really similar to a RBMA lecture before for Frieze Projects NYC where he goes over the influence of medieval chant on 80s music and his own. I think the 2nd half of it has video on youtube too
