Itt: post five of your musical "fetishes", and people give you cool new music to try based on that.

Thanks, also i'm sure I made this thread with my trip on, but mobile might have fucked that up.
Skweebedibideet dop dodot-dobe.
Joanna Newsom and Owen Pallett I'm sure you've heard. If not, Ys and Heartland are both great.
With the exception of #1, check out Hissing Fauna are you the Destroyer by Of Montreal
a Trillby collection
>Really cheesy 80s synth – think Christie McVie synth xylo sounds
>really dirty single-coil guitar tone
>fat but smooth bass tone
>chopped-up pitched vocal samples
>mid song jamsession breakdowns
>huge-ass, emotionally draining climaxes
>slightly dissonant chords
I'm basically looking for something like Wasted Days by Cloud Nothings. Any recs appreciated.

Henry Cow - In Praise of Learning
I think of This Heat s/t when I read your post. Also Faust.
I tried to give it the subject "this was fun last time", because it's such a good type of thread and we should have it more often.
>talking over music (like slint)
Only ones that come to mind is NMH and BLA
well, to state the obvious, The Glow Pt. 2, Hospice, Lift Yr. Skinny Fists, The Downward Spiral, The Age of Adz
Maybe not so obvious, The Crane wife by The Decemberists,
i'm not too up on my concept albums
Hospice, Jane Doe, Electro-Shock Blues and Skinny Fists if you're into /mu/core. Also:
>Misplaced Childhood by Marillion
>Mount Eerie by the Microphones
>Fear of a Blank Planet by Porcupine Tree
>Horses in the Sky by Thee Silver Mt. Zion
>Blazing Fires and Helicopters by Suffocate for Fuck Sake
>Vocalizing with instruments
>Interchanging singing, preferably when it's male and female.
That's one of mine too.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (first 2 albums)
It's about Phil trying to get over a shitty breakup and finally attempting suicide. The storyline continues into Mount Eerie.
Probably. It flows together well and it's really feelsy. Yes, it's not the greatest album in terms of lyrical substance but it feels like it might be what you're looking for. Prepare to sob like a baby sometime around Shiva.
>noisy and loud, but not metal
>simple, yet expressive beats
>Goofy, heavily ironic vocals and sound effects
>Occasional genre hopping
>Overall positive outlook
>Non-standard sounds and chord progressions
>Emotional sung lyrics that aren't necessarily "good singing" like Modest Mouse and DG
>Polyphonic and syncopated rhythms
>If all else fails go for heavy bass
>Vocals about mythical creatures, being in an alien world, dream like rambling
>Thick guitar sound with substance
>Heavy, sludgy sounds
>Strange percussion instrumentals
Beck used to do this all the time, it was awesome.
>Sampled radio recordings
>Sudden shit in intensity
I like it when its both in lyrics and melody, suddenly a very calm/melancholy song gets very intense.
>Artist sings like he's half high and dosnt give a shit

Favorite instruments: piano, guitar, cello, guzheng/koto, harp
>"hey bros were random so lets add another beat because thats weird and random"
There are no 1/5th notes, it's kept to multiples of four because otherwise things get arbitrary
>vocal layering (like on Giles Corey 'Grave Filled With Books')
>"different" ways of playing regular instruments or equally weird instruments
It's not arbitrary.
A 1/5th note is a 1/5th note, in the same way 1/4th note is a 1/4th note.
What do you mean with arbitrary anyways?
>A 1/5th note is a quarter note for teenagers who want to feel special.
Oh, so you are not allowed to experiment anymore?
>weird samples, specifically voice samples +for paranormal subject matter
>lo fi ESPECIALLY lo fi rapper voice production (like demon queen exorcise tape oooof or DJ Rozwell if you band camp)
>cool sound designs (like the stuff you hear in tobacco)
Have you ever played an instrument?
Tempo is already somewhat arbitrary, can't really count along or do the mental maths on the spot.
Deciding to be a special little snowflake by writing crap like 7/9 is silly and pointless, it's 7/8 with a bit of doubt.
>Oh, so you are not allowed to experiment anymore?
Avant-teens are really grabbing at straws for new ideas.
You can get a machine to do it, but a person never could accurately.
That's the definition you used?
At least clarify that, 70/8 is an odd signature because it is never really used.
3/4 is an odd signature because 3%2 gives us a non-integer.
>Have you ever played an instrument?
Yes. Piano for two years.
>Tempo is already somewhat arbitrary
Tempo is not arbitrary since it can be measured with a chronometer.
>7/9 is silly and pointless, it's 7/8 with a bit of doubt.
They are different things, you like it or not.
>You can get a machine to do it, but a person never could accurately.
Yes, a person can do it. Have you ever heard of Ferneyhough?
I know! Love those cute melodies!
Contemporary is everything since the middle ages.
>Yes. Piano for two years.
So you're incompetent.
>Tempo is not arbitrary since it can be measured with a chronometer.
Tempo is entirely arbitrary, it's impossible to be exact.
Verbal cues are far better than exact BPM.
>They are different things, you like it or not.
Not to the reader, to the reader it's 7/8 with some doubt.
>Yes, a person can do it. Have you ever heard of Ferneyhough?
Not accurate, nobody could play it on the spot
What are you trying to say?
>So you're incompetent.
>Tempo is entirely arbitrary, it's impossible to be exact.
That goes for everything. Not even science is exact.
>Verbal cues are far better than exact BPM.
That' subjective. Time signatures are not.
>Not to the reader, to the reader it's 7/8 with some doubt.
>with some doubt.
That's ridiculous. Saying that is like saying that 4/4 is the same as 4/2 but slower.
>Not accurate, nobody could play it on the spot
Yes, they can (if we are talking about the 7/9 time signature).
1. Belonging to the same period of time: a fact documented by two contemporary sources.
2. Of about the same age.
3. Current; modern: contemporary trends in design.
Where the fuck does you definition come from?
TFF - Bitter Tea. Not sure how poetic the lyrics are, since I don't have an ear for poetry in music, but it has everything else you listed.
Two years is incompetence.
>That's ridiculous. Saying that is like saying that 4/4 is the same as 4/2 but slower.
I've been a musician since you were around 4, I know this.
>Not even science is exact.
Science is glorified empiricism.
Mathematics is exact, everything can be reduced to axioms and proven via higher level mathematics that is based on axioms.
>Time signatures are not.
>time signatures are not related to tempii
Confirmed for incompetent musician.
7/8 and 7/9 only have superficial differences, signatures like 6/8 and 3/4 are technically the same but are played different
We're not in a different era
The proper musical definition?
'old fashioned' music exists before the popular era, all music in the popular era is contemporary.
I already know them, but I'm not a big fan. I think they use asian instrumentation in a gimmicky way, like Within Temptation uses the orchestra, and that the metal part is too generic.
Thanks for trying though!
But it's true, we're in the modern era of humanity, same is true with the late, electrified 1800s.
>I don't know by which definition you could call pre-20th century music modern
All proper definitions, modern music has existed since the 1850s and 1860s.
>What are you even talking about?
Of music, think of it as a thought web.
We have the popular era, and eras like Baroque and Gothic branching from it.
The popular era branches off of the western art music timeline, which branches off of western music, which branches off of music.
