music literature? looking for some good books on music (nothing that focuses heavily on pre-20th century music though). links between genres and such, general history of genres, etc.
i want to be able to discuss music and have a decent foundation for what i'm talking about. i know i can find stuff on the internet, but it tends to be overwhelming and distracting (like wikipedia, try to get through a page without clicking a link to another)
books pls, thanks in advance
It's been a while!
>name two genres and I'll make a song of it within the hour
>Special edition: you can also name Artists
>Dubs decide ONE genre each
Here's our work so far:
No 'le wrong generation' bullshit here, but...
Does anyone else prefer vintage recordings to modern ones, generally?
I mean the production, the instruments, the general dirty gritty authenticity of them I guess
I wouldn't say vintage, because some of the vocal tracks on some of the pre-60's stuff are just terrible, but the frequency response is just bad enough to be good and I've never ran into a digital tape saturator that worked as well as actually recording onto tape.
I agree. I think the evolution to a more "perfect" sounding recording began to rob music of it's humanity. Humans aren't perfect; should music be perfect even if art is supposed to imitate life? This is something I really noticed during the 2000s when everything became so slick, it was unreal (not in a good way) unless it was a lo-fi artist or a live recording.
I'll spend my life trying to understand how Hitsville U.S.A produced so many amazingly written, recorded and mixed songs. The fact that so many hit singles were all performed by the same band and written by a handful of songwriters is even more staggering.
There hasn't been a better band produced in the UK since Radiohead. Genuine thread, not trolling.

Davis or Coltrane? So tricky

Can we have a house music thread without the usual absolutely hilarious TV show meme?
What do you like?
Scientists have discovered that not UK Garage, but grime is in fact the objectively worst genre in the history of club music culture and mankind as a whole! As such any and all Grime discussion is banned from /bleep/. Ignore posts mentioning Grime as you would any of your typical shitposting. Redirect Grime shitposters to memerap generals.
Which one is your favourite subgenre?
