Songs freakishly ahead of their time.
This was made in 1968. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnH7AVEX0AM
nah, this is different. Everyone's galvanized against brutality and corruption more than usual. All the pics of protestors standing up to it, NMOS, etc. Most of the time when police brutality happens, it's forgotten within a week. I think it's going to have a more lasting impact.
The government had just as much power (maybe even more because of the Cold War) in the 60s than they do now, but there was a lot more trust in government before the 60s cultural revolution. That was the significance of the 60s: people started questioning their own society and power structures a hell of a lot more than in previous decades.
The current generation already has the luxury of being extremely pessimist against government already because they were raised by a generation that adopted that pessimism.
not sure if this one counts
its hard to differentiate between what was ahead of its time in an anachronistic sense and what was just influential on things to come
What's even happening in St. Louis right now? I went on /pol/ but of course the only thing they'r talking about is how just because the victim was black, he was guilty of something.
Is this like Trayvon where both parties were in the wrong, or was that kid really just murdered?
From what I've read/heard the kid got into and argument, slaps the cops hand away from his gun, cop pulls it out and shots him (thought he was going for the cops gun I guess) the kid puts his hands up and surrenders, the cops then shoots him several more times and kills him
Dammit, it can't ever just be a black and white (no pun intended) scenario, can it?
I've always gotta think "On the one hand..." and "But also...".
Why can't we ever have a definite "Oh yeah, that cop murdered that person"?
>in the wrong
He seems like a dough but c'mon.
From what I understand the kid got into a confrontation with a cop, tried to take his gun, ran, then got shot and died.
The real problem from what I can see are the protesters lighting cars and shit on fire and looting stores.
I view the Zimmerman trial like this:
Zimmerman shouldn't have started following the kid for no real reason, definitely shouldn't have tried to approach him.
Martin shouldn't have assaulted him/respond in the way he did.
>The real problem from what I can see are the protesters lighting cars and shit on fire and looting stores.
Yeah, we can't ever have a rational observation of anything because everyone just resorts to violence out of anger even though they didn't even know the victim.
for some reason my picture didn't work the first time
>ahead of its time
>music came out at a time before it was considered normal and mainstream
>that music has now become the norm
what is it about this concept that you are not understanding?
I still can't believe that a lot of later Beatles songs were recorded in the 60's. They may not have been quite as groundbreaking or world changing as most people hail them as, but they were pretty ahead of a good bit of artists performing during that time.
How do we pre-empt music that will be listened to in 20 years? I'm trying brainstorm ideas of something that will be new but it feels like everything has been done already. Will will just go full-avant-garde listening to recordings of animals fucking with an off-set beat that sounds like a turd being dropped into a toilet bowl? Maybe we will listen to the sound of body's decomposing sped up 100x. Or maybe cosmic radiation along with a thalidomide child having a seizure. Where the fuck do we go from here?
I honestly believe this whole album is quite ahead of its time. I mean the whole way the album is put together reminds me of The Microphones and Eric's Trip with all the mix of acoustic songs and crunchy rock songs.
Here's the first track just for reference:
He says as he shitposts.
Something has to be innovative to be ahead of its time, most of these videos are just early examples of electronic music in a pop context..
Recordings of animalfucking isn't avant garde.
I've just decided that it's impossible to tell what will be the next "big thing".
I don't think anyone has ever made something and said, "Oh yeah, this is completely unique, this'll start a movement", they just made the sounds they wanted to hear, and other people liked those sounds too, so they expanded on them.
Personally, I'd like to see less genre-creating for the sake of genre-creating, and more expanding upon sounds that are in their prime right now.
20 years will just be reappropriated music from before. You gotta think big picture. What will music be like in 100 years? 1000? 10000? 1000000? Beyond? At some point there has to been something that revolutionizes music so much that it becomes completely liberated from mere vibrational sound and becomes something more.
don't try to argue with this guy
he always talks shit about music but never with a concrete example or argument
another clt wannabe that only won't get a trip because he knows people will filter him
kinda sad when you think about it
the thing that kind of irks me about this song is that people (fantano called it "extremely original") act like J Dilla did some crazy shit on lightworks when in reality its a carbon copy of the original minus the vocals.
Turns out this is actually a more recent tribute meant to realize the ideas of an intellectual who wrote about experimental music.
Modern day electronic pop (think Kanye, Bjork or Radiohead) in 1971
Indie Rock from 1975
disposable heroes of hiphoprisy
The Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy - Television, the Drug of the Nation
Chuck Berry does Kanye (he even says the Ahhhh!)
Also some more pro to-rap goodness
And have a really modern pop sounding tribal field recording from the 30s.
not as much as a lot of other stuff in this thread but this would still sound amazing if it came out today
old fag here.
I remember the first time I read some burroughs. naked lunch is published, not written, in 1959, which means he began writing it in 1950. my old timey granpa-y self realized that the '50s were filled with artistic badasses. this is a nice thread. its cool to see other people find their roots, but even moreso to watch them stumble upon the fact that their generation barely even knows the score. keep digging, friends.
What else do I have here?
The Velvet Undies (or at least John Cale under their name) do drone. This could either be from 1964 or 66.
insane 1959 electronic atmosphere, totally ruined by silly chipmunk voices
CAPTCHA: art npiteof
Can - I'm So Green
This sounds like it's from the 90s, yet it came out before The Dark Side of the Moon. I hear some generic 90s-ness of Beck, Dandy Warhols, and others.
Jethro Tull was playing heavy metal in 1969.
>that metal as fuck descending riff with lyrics about coming to haunt a girl in her dreams
this is pretty fucking 2014 for 2008
i'd also like to think dj yo yo dieting predicted witch house
Pretty cool, although it should be noted that this is a 1977 recreation of a Luigi Russolo composition. But the lack of original recordings doesn't diminish the fact that this composition was way ahead of its time.
holy shit dude
i was going to mention this, but i'm kinda glad to see it be one of the first posts here as well
have another song from them made in 1968 (which is still pretty far out there for the time)
vaporwave from 1995
If you go to whosampled for most of these songs its crazy, alot of them are top popular songs now.
Like what producers go
HEY LETS SAMPLE THIS 60s BIT
It's not far off of Death Grips making it big like this, so I have to ask you guys if there's earlier music that uses this bass-heavy brickwalling style. I want to believe there is. Shame B L A C K I E sucks in all other respects.
I wish I never had to listen to death grips. My stupid friends are obsessed with hipster hop and all that shit, and I had the displeasure of having to listen to it full fucking blast in a car.
>dissonant tremolo-picked riffing
>black metal vox
in a time when all black metal guys were playing shitty lo-fi thrash metal, these post-punkers were predating the artsy later 90s style of black metal.

Immediately thought DG when the lyrics started. Then:
>running through my system
BLOWER SYSTEM SYSTEM BLOWER
also https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEdk8YhieSQ gives me DG vibes on the production
No, beef heart and Beethoven were both ahead of their time, this doesn't mean they sounded futuristic, it means they were far ahead of their contemporaries. It just so happens that people end up catching on, because art and mediums progress, however by your definition, the point of art would be to progress
this is a better raymond scott tune https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dy77ioKI4lQ
theres a few things that seem 'before their time' in this thread but its mostly just sources of influences on modern shitty bands
this record is just so mad. the man started performing again recently, it works in a rave like any old chicago house tune. i cant imagine what your typical 70-something indian guy thinks of western ravers so shouts to him.
throbbing gristle made this techno beat too:
This. It's amazing to imagine but the music of the future is already somewhere in someone's head, and all we have to do is wait for them to use it and decide to turn it into sound.
we've already done everything which is why
>new underground movements are getting stupider (vaporwave, seapunk)
>pop music is degenerating and/or homogenizing
my favorite music from the past ten or so years is all stuff that's been done before.
Reminding myself that this came out in 1994 still upsets me so much
Few people really sound like Brainiac before or after
>tfw one of Timmy's cousins saw that I have Hissing Prigs in my top 10 albums of all-time
>tfw he was so happy and proud
Nah. I posted my chart onto facebook for giggles to see what would happen and it turned out a guy I'm friends with is his cousin. He tagged like all of his family in the comments. It was adorable
I do love posting and sharing those dudes anywhere and everywhere
Be on the lookout; they're heading out to do a bit of a tour sometime soon so if you're east coast/midwest you may be able to see 'em
>A band that directly influenced a lot of stoner rock bands and is mentioned by them frequently
>surprised that it sounds like those bands
It's hard to tell in this thread what is impressive and what is just like influential stuff I haven't heard of or something, but is a big deal in those scenes.

thats from number one. free psychedelic poster inside is their weakest album imo, still pretty good. you should really check out peachy and number one tho if you liked free psychedelic poster
peachy is a lot more sp00ky and has a lot of emphasis on the spoken word bits. number one is more abrasive and weirder and focuses more on musique concrete experimentation. psychedelic poster is kind of in between the two, but it doesnt have the same magic that peachy and number one have
yeah, i don't get why anyone's posting noise music from the fifties and over, considering that was already explored in musique concrete as early as the forties. The Art of Noise was the crux of all that, too, interesting stuff.
>But those corny lyrics
It's mixed but still revolutionary
>4'33" 50 years before 4'33"
thats not revolutionary at all. all it takes is for one asshole to say "hurr my piece is nothing woo." Its probably done thousands of times before by some guy making a joke.
Actually, yeah, this is legit. It's Italian progressive rock, which, as a scene, contributed to some horror movie soundtracks (which explains the kvltness of the musical expression).
What are some modern genres that have taken cues from On the Corner.
It sounds incredibly ahead of its time but i can't pin down how exactly
>do tons of psychedelic drugs
>travel to the future and listen
>come back, do tons of heroin
>make music that people wont understand until your long dead and gone
