I am a fan of ambient/downtempo/electronic music by musicians such as Aphex Twin, Autechre, Plaid, Brian Eno, Photek, Jega, Lustmord etc - but I tend to skip many of the tracks in their albums for being too "noisy" and random, I prefer ambiance and a consistent tune.
Any recommendation tracks or albums for me?
Brian Eno? Noisy? hmmmm
Have you heard Discreet Music by him? The first track is 30 minutes long and is completely mellow the whole way through. Then there are three classical tracks that I never listen to.
The Caretaker - An Empty Bliss Beyond This World
HTRK - Psychic 9-5 Club (probably my AOTY)
I hope this helps!
Does anyone else feel like hip-hop has an incredible amount of unexplored potential as a genre? Rappers have the entire canon of poetry to work with, and yet fucking Enter the Wu-Tang Clan - with all its silly ninja shit - is often considered the GOAT hip-hop album. Not to mention all the misogyny, homophobia and materialism that pervades the genre. Gangsta rap is the bane of hip-hop.
best hip-hop of 2014?
Why have sharethreads been dying so much recently. Don't let this one die.
Amebix - Arise!
>post punk, crust metal
AOTY 2014 thread. Post yours.
Haven't had one in awhile, so let's have a hypnagogic pop thread, /mu/. Favorite releases? Favorite artists? Been revisiting Lamborghini Crystal lately. Dial 747-Creepozoid and Alien Microwave are fucking genius
ITT: Good albums to listen to in the background while working on school shit
pic related, one of the two albums I've been listening to
In this thread post soothing trax
Can we get a chart thread going on?
How is Weighing Souls With Sands even remotely similar to traditional Post-Rock?
Also there should be a category for "Drone Rock" or "Something that isn't heavy" with Pentastar, TBMHITLS, Feedbacker, etc.

Just essentially bland music that still retains somewhat of a charm despite it washing over you with nothing much gained. Deviations from 4/4 and pop music formats are not welcome.
Help me finish this list.
OK YOU HAVE ONE CD YOU CAN BURN ONLY 10 TRACKS ON AND IS THE ONLY THING YOU CAN LISTEN TO FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE....BUILD YOUR SUPER ALBUM.

/u/ here. I'm studying Japanese to better translate my yuri fanfics and get a job...
But my teacher tells me I should listen to Japanese music when I study.
But I don't really know where to start. Perfume sounds good and so does Capsule but I was wondering what /mu/'s recommendation is?
I went to /jp/ but they told me music was for faggots and to come here. I'm sorry.
