What's supposed to be the difference between "Alternative" and "Pop"?
We got London on da track
Hey guys I've been SUPER into this crunchy band from the late 80'summer called "Ween". They're officially labeled as "Alt. Rock" but their genre selection and psychedelic sounds and lyrics are pretty great. From what I've seen they're pretty fucking obscure. Having released several albums under their own label "Chocodog Records" but not much is known for the "Mainstream media" but they have a large cult following. In short Ween thread. GO!.
With the exceptions of a few photos, i'm pretty sure Buckethead qualifies
Even though it doesn't sound as good, I think it'd be easier to name artists who simply obscure their identity.
I don't think I know any artists who practice complete anonymity. Like you said, Buckethead is probably the best example.
>Their best songs are non singles
What's her name, /mu/?
Moth Into Flame
Halo On Fire
24K Magic/That's What I Like
Straight Up & Down
Blue Flowers Revisited
This is honestly better than Loveless
What's so great about this?
Repetitive, annoying, minute long tracks that leave no lasting impression.
hey /mu/, check out how long my dick is
What's Thom's problem with Pablo Honey?
This nigga dropping tonight and here you all are like nothing
Star Boy was a let down
Hes gonna slip up on this one and everything goes down the shitter.
March 2017 he gonna be in the news for all the wrong reasons and then he fizzles out.
You heard it here first. Screen cap this shit.
>half baked ideas
>rife with recording errors and mistakes
>paul at his worst since Rubber Soul with the lone exception of Helter Skelter
How did they get away with making this album and people actually liking it? Could they honestly have released anything and people would like it?
Assuming that a strong cadence is what fuels modern pop music, why do we scarcely see tritone substitution in modern music? Considering how close the notes in substituted chord are to the I (nearly all changes are by a semitone), one would assume that this, being the strongest of any cadence I have seen, would be more popular. Thoughts?
>why do we scarcely see tritone substitution in modern music?
Pop musicians don't use it because they don't really have a basic grasp on music theory.
Modern composers don't use it because functional harmony has been dead in everything but film scores for years.
>strongest of any cadence I have seen
how is it stronger than playing the G7? sure, it's more interesting and varied maybe, but the pull back to the I with the G7 seems stronger to me
that tritone from F -> B really pulls to the I
I was going to call you an dumb faggot OP, but I don't remember any band that did what SY did on this album or even any band that sounds like them.
I mean, Loveless is a masterpiece of guitar music, but there's a lot of shoegaze that souns like it. But there's nothing that sounds like SY, mainly DN.
You have made the claim yet leave it on me to answer, preposterous!
Very well. Even though the use of dissonance and noise as a central part of your guitar playing was not entirely new, few albums at this time used that to create such awe inspiring music like on Daydream Nation. I'm having a hard time thinking of a technique, that came afterwords, that has had more influence on guitar playing then the ones displayed on this record.
What is some music?
This is far and away their best release. You all know that right?
side 2 > 1 by far.
/mu/, music friends, and critics tell me that Fugazi is the face of intelligent punk rock. These guys jam together really well, but I just can't get into their songs. Some of their more anthem-y stuff is kinda awkward, and the more complex stuff is even worse.
Tell me why my opinion sucks and post bands that you just can't get into.
I really like them, but i wish ian did more stuff like this
Rate and Recommend for others.
is purple a kvlt color
this sucks lol
Why is classical music so h*cking quiet? I need to turn my volume up to at least 90% to even have the chance to hear the softer parts. Do these producers not know how to mix music? Just about every other genre I listen to is completely fine at around 40% volume max.
My headphones are fine, thank you very much. pic related.
Albums similar to pic related?
Also where should I go with sakamoto next if I really liked this.
No I haven't. Literally only listened to pic related and am halfway through b2 unit as we speak. I like the synthpop but not nearly as much as the ambient material on my op pic. Where should I start with YMO?
WTF I hate Grimes now
need data for a stats class.
In a party setting does /mu/ prefer hip-hop or electronic music (house, trance, blah blah blah)?
thank ya in advance
Is it because they make strange noises?
Wanting to get into Sonic Youth. What's a good starting point amongst their huge discography?
