Let's play a little game!
Name your favorite songs from an artist BUT with an alternate title that gives hints at the actual songs. And other people try to guess what artist you're talking about.
For example, Radiohead
2 - 6 = 3
A Deer at the Porch
Yo Canadafags. Post you're favourite album by your favourite Canadian band.
So this is interesting for about a quarter of the runtime, but when the "lol whole tone scale" joke runs out, what's the point?
holy FUCK modest mouse is good
trailer trash came up on pandora and i've been hooked on their entire discog through 2001 for weeks
are there any other bands that turn raw & unprocessed emotion into songs like MM? who are they? this shit is fucking insane
had a close friend who overdosed on heroin last year after moving back home to get clean. finally watched his memorial video they played at the memorial service. "Custom Concern" was the second song featured. the feels were real.

Non-Australians of /mu/ I want to have a serious talk with you. However bad you think the things like Brokencyde are and other shit like that, there is nothing that compares to the absolute trainwreck that is Australian Rap.
Here two of the biggest songs in the Aussie Rap game.
Like there is not a single genre of music that could be worse than this, is there?
Post a song then listen and rate the song posted before yours.
What do u tell her
Just say alternative /mu/, I guarantee among the broad genres you listen, A Lot of them could cross paths with "alternative" in a normies eyes. IDM, Shoegaze, industrial, psychedelic, chamber pop, experimental, just call it Alt.

Rap albums that make you think
It's Friday! Post your drink and what you're jamming out to

>XTC - Oranges & Lemons
shout me and ill shout back ily you all
Last 7 days I have been into Animal Collective, Fugazi, Death Grips, Tommy Wright III, Cortex, Suicidal Tendencies, The Smiths, Three 6 Mafia, Tigers Jaw, Wu-Tang Clan, Miles Davis, Radiohead, Bones, Sufjan Stevens, The Avalanches, Aesop Rock, American Football, Black Flag, Bladee and Burzum.
>Last 7 days I have been into Tom Waits, John Frusciante, Bob Dylan and The Band, Hüsker Dü, Joanna Newsom, The Beatles, Frank Zappa, The Residents, Fugazi, The Apples in Stereo, Jimi Hendrix, Stravinsky - Bernstein Israel Philharmonic, The Red Krayola, The Velvet Underground, Neutral Milk Hotel, The United States of America, John Fahey, Van Morrison, Fiona Apple and Hella.
/mu/, help me. I need more mid- to late '80s dance pop/synthpop like Madonna's True Blue: https://youtu.be/snsTmi9N9Gs , with delightfully cheesy vaporwave/Lopatin-style synths and preferrably with classic '80s production with big drums and all. The cheesier, the better. Other examples from the era: Phil Collins, Roxette, Pet Shop Boys.
What I definitely don't want is thin, primitive synths, like from 1981 and before. Also, I am looking for something more dance-oriented, less depressive/dark, so Depeche mode is mostly out, unless it's something like Strangelove.
Is Eminem dadcore at this point...?
A. No, because people who listen to rap don't have dads
B. Yes, he always has been because the kind of people who listen to Eminem have their first children between the ages of 13 and 17.
Take your pick.
/mu/ how do I find local bands playing near me? Is there a good site for it?
What did we think, /mu/?
ITT: Middle school-core that you still listen to.
ITT: Post a song, and review the song posted below
Pretty good. Don't listen to much rap but I like the optimistic vibe and the reggae sounding thing (forgot what it's called) was cool too. 6/10
Everytime I try to write about my depression and insecurities, it comes off as whiny and pretentious. Pic unrelated.
Why do people still talk about The Strokes and treat them like they're relevant when they're in the same category as Hot Chip, The Rapture, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, Broken Social Scene, Wolf Parade, TV On the Radio, Wilco, The Fiery Furnaces, The New Pornographers, ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail is Dead, Kings of Leon, The Hives, and The Vines as an "early 2000s overhyped band that has maybe 2 or 3 good songs but is irrelevant now and should not be talked about."?
The amount of people who care about a new Strokes album is mind boggling.

What did he mean by this?
We discuss the meaning of John Cage's 4:33.
wasn't the proposed meaning that the ambience and chance sounds of the space became the piece? an awareness sort of thing?
cage himself loved traffic sounds, he was trying to tune the audience into the musical qualities of their environment?
To my understanding, he believed that music represented a chaotic universe. By creating a piece of silence, he could represent his perceived ordered universe; a view he adopted from Zen Buddhism.
