howcome cynical assholes make good music but nice guys make bad music?
I remember listening to car seat headrest once and when it was over I thought to myself "is that all there is to an indie artist?".
Is this the best post-hardcore there is to offer?
Do mu actually have a saying in the alternative music scene? Do people come here to see what's being well received by the users and shape their sound accordingly? Do mu have any influence?
Clyp/Vocaroo thread, post original content and covers, remember to give feedback : )
This song is about a man who owns a candy store, tries to do a science experiment to make the perfect candy, makes a big mistake and burns his whole shop down. But the kids and all their parents that go to the shop feel real sorry for him so they build a new one for him
Now that was an interesting little segment. were those live drums? The stereo hocketing was actually done quite tastefully.
Why is it that whenever someone calls someone's taste in films, books or video games shit it isn't a big thing but once they call someone's taste in music shit they go apeshit?
Can we please go nuts over The Cocteau Twins together? What a wonderful, important group. It's a shame we (probably) won't get to see them perform again.
Here's "Evangeline" from their 1993 release "Four Calendar Cafe."
Fav albums? Imo:
Heaven Or Las Vegas > Four Calendar Cafe > Treasure > Victorialand > Head Over Heels > Garlands
Their singles and b-sides are all equally great. Such a consistently amazing band, it's astonishing.
What does /mu/ thinks about Rick Astley ?
No, seriously. What did he mean by this?
this guy has one of the most beautiful voices i've ever heard on a pop record t b h
Dude, /mu/ loves REM. I've never seen anybody dislike Murmur and even Automatic gets a fair bit of love (you would think /mu/ would instantly deride it as adult contemporary bullshit or something).
Does anyone else mourn for what vaporwave used to be? It really has had it's image destroyed, this was inevitable though since the genre was coined it allowed every kid and their dad to latch onto it. artists like yung lean and vaportrap are evidence of this.
I liked the melancholic/ambient direction it was going in around 2 or 3 years ago but I can't endure listening to slowed down vocals and trap in order to find good tracks anymore
It isn't dead though. A lot of good albums have been released the past year and this one but they didn't get exposed properly... I'm building a new vaporwave essentials guide for that actually.
Anyway I made a list of some good hypnagogic vw here (system won't let me post it here): http://pastebin.com/QmzYwJ48
The guide I'm building is here: http://virtual-plaza.net/index.php?threads/introducing-the-vaporwave-essentials-guide-nu-edition.7/
I'm trying to enter a pervertcore and abusecore phase, an evolution of the somewhat failed girlwave / vaporn experiment
Anything out there similar to this?
rec, rate, whatever it is that you kids do nowadays
I'm not even sure if we even do anything anymore nowadays
solid devil trips thou
Post albums with at least 3 discs. More is fine.
Starting with a classic
