Does Iran have a pop music scene, or is that considered harām? I'd love to listen to any Iranian / Persian music /mu/ has got, be it folk, classical, rock, hip-hop, vaporwave, metal, you name it. So if anybody is on /mu/ right now who is in the know, please share some knowledge!
Thank you :)
iran has a huge growing movement of hip hop right now. most of it is illegal in iran, but people play it anyways. i find that farsi as a language flows extremely well over hip hop beats. check this out:
I was thinking about starting a physical collection of all my favorite albums, but I'm not sure whether to go with vinyl or cd?
CD is much cheaper to get, easier to store, and I can already play it with my PC and other devices.
Vinyl looks beautiful to me, they would look much greater as a set piece. They're much more expensive and require me to also buy a turntable. They do however have a much higher resell value, but I wouldn't ever sell them so it doesn't matter.
What do you personally collect?
CD's cause pretty much I can lend them to a friend or play them at their house or something. Of course I secretly would love to start a vinyl collection, mainly due to the sound quality and the album art, but CD's are just way more practical for me as i dont have the space for vinyl, that and its cheaper and most albums I want are only on CD.
in the early 2000's i had roughly 800 cd's and I wanted to start going to vinyl, but the idea of having 800 cd's and 1 vinyl sucked compared to having 801 cd's
They all got stolen :)
It's okay I download music now and it's all free. I wish i had all the money I spent more than the physical media
One of the biggest benefits of CDs for me is the ability to skip to specific songs, so I'd have to go with them.
That being said, I think that old prog rock and concept albums are best on vinyl. Any album that's too loud on CD is almost always better on vinyl too, with good speakers.
now that weve had enough time to meme out about this album can we please have a critical discussion about it. Has anybody noticed any interesting musical textures or lyrical motifs that they feel comfortable sharing with everyone?
fucking "it won't lit". it's such a meaningless phrase, and the whole thing on BBPoison about Zach tweeting it and fans freaking out leads me to think that it's actually supposed to be a gibberish phrase that they expect fans to over-interpret.
Also the "foghorn devils" part of TBIAGN is really interesting in the way it paints a picture of mindless obese people force-feeding themselves, it's so dystopian and creepy i love it

Why do people unironically listen to this apple-commercial, faux-indie garbage? Honestly, I'd rather listen to Nickelback than this shit. At least they're not filtering Arcade Fire through some soulless, corporate sheen just to make money.
I have about 5 friends, and 3 of them listen to Imagine Dragons and call them their "favorite rock band." As for the other two, one is a weeb and listens to anime music/brostep/kpop and the other listens exclusively to female vocalists and brags about how some of them don't have wikipedia pages. I really need to have a friend I can talk to about music.
i unironically enjoy Imagine Dragons, they're one of my favourite bands actually. I saw them with my friends , who are not my friends anymore nowadays.Their music reminds me of good times. Try listening to their last album , there are a lot of fillers but Friction is GOAT
Worst album you've ever heard?
I've always wondered why people hate Danse Manatee, even people who are well enough into patricianhood to be able to listen to it without getting a headache seem to despise it. People who heil Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They've Vanished as a masterpiece, criticize the fuck out of Danse manatee, even though they are around the same level of abrasiveness.
But then it hit me, how many people have you seen who say they hate Danse Manatee, but love "Essplode"? How many people have you seen deny that Feels is the true anco pop masterpiece, because...

tell me about golden dawn

what is this
I like carbon based lifeforms
are you indie
golden dawn is good imo
who are you
Why is this album so catchy?
>got no patience cause i'm not a doctor, girl why is you lying, girl why you mufasa?
>less cohesive than Kid A
>less diverse than Kid A
>has an actual filler track
>people here STILL think it's "clearly" better
You're just being contrarians.
Anyone else fucking with the new Skepta? I was never really into him but his sampling QotSA caught my eye
Have you sinc Interview with Bottomless Pit?

I'll start with this epic jam!
Which are favorite FNM album, song and Patton's side project.
That EP is fantastic. When Good Dogs Do Bad Things is such a dark and mesmerising track. Patton really puts his voice to work on that one, the high pitched screams are astonishing.
What say you?
I think it's a tossup between Coroner and Destruction
Tame Impala > Radiohead
each successive decade of music has been better than the preceding one
>there are people posting on this board who actually think ummagumma is not pink floyds best album
ITT: Unique bands that should have their own genre
there's nothing quite like it, but there's no denying its sound is largely derived from the Beach Boys, Bjork, and Aphex Twin my dude. still it's one of the best albums of the new century.
What band could this Indyweek writer be talking about /mu/?
Who is the crimson king?
ITT: Post an album, get recs.
I liked his older stuff a lot more than his new album, my friend took me to his last tour with $uicideboy$ and it was pretty run of the mill. He has potential to be fantastic but he needs to step outside his comfort zone more

It's like if tame impala ditched the neo-psych element of their music and just made shitty nu-male rock. Can you explain why you like this?
