Let's have a thread for albums that sound completely unlike anything else you've ever heard. I'm hoping that if we can find enough, we can make a chart of them.
Let's try to avoid unusual albums that are somewhat comparable to others, until we run out of really unique ones first.
PIVIXKI - Gravissima
Here's one that immediately comes to mind.
There are other artists that use retro-futuristic sounds, but none sound like OPN.
>tfw transcendental black metal didn't catch on
the style had a ton of potential, too ;_;
There are still no other prog/hip-hop/post-rock bands as good as Subtle.
Please prove me wrong guys.
Yeah I like the Dear Hunter, but I was more thinking of Sufjan's incorporation of bleeps and stuff into his normal genre-blending music.
Isn't this mostly black metal mixed with math rock though? Still good.
new Liturgy in 2015 hype train
They really dont have many similarities at all other than pissing off nerds
Before clicking this link, stop, and ask yourself: "Am I ready to hear the sound of the future?"
Let's see if you are brave enough.
Ikue Mori – Myrninerest
Ben Frost – By the Throat
Nobuko Hori – xtoyourmilkyhair
Dean Blunt's releases also sound unique to me.
And I'd say Coil's later albums, but they do sound similar to each other if nothing else.
closest to their sound on this would be This Heat i guess but i'm not completely sure
Supposedly it was going to be released as a Kayo Dot album at one point.
Why is there nothing similar to pic related?
It kind of blew my mind the first time I heard it. The first time I heard Behind the Mirrors my jaw was on the floor for the whole song. I've never really heard anything that captures a feeling of emptiness quite like that album.
What are you talking about? Everybody who's into post-punk likes the Astros. How's that album compared to pic related
absolutely felt the same way. first time i heard i'm like yeah this is p good nice lyrics etc. then behind the mirrors comes on and bwahhh my brain. i can't think of anything like that track.
Good stuff too, not weird for the sake of weird, unlike some of the stuff ITT
As much as I love E&A, they're not really like Subtle.
Other anticon hip-hop bands like Young Fathers, Why?, or The Skyrider Band come a bit closer, but Subtle/13 & God stands alone.
Of course, there are no carbon copies these albums but there's stuff out there that's similar.
A lot of contemprorary rap acts sound similar to Danny (or vice versa). Ranging from clipping, Ab, Shabazz, or at times reminding me of Bronson.
Lithurgy is trickier but I'd say stuff like Dope Body sounds similar to it, at least instrumentally. Difference being, one's mixed with BM, the other with Punk.
And OPN's just a slew of ambient plus vaporwave (well, because it's opn after all).
I'm not saying any of these albums are bad. Just we all know about these albums, wanted to see more out there stuff.
also you basically just said they don't sound like anything else lol
Also Replica isn't vaporwave. R+7 sounds more like vaporwave, and it's still not at all. They both get grouped into the "scene" because he released eccojams before both of them (same reason Returnal gets grouped in). He didn't even know what vaporwave is according to his reddit ama
>tfw you will never listen to another album that is perfect in every way
This is weird shit. Heavy ass bass riffing with drumming that sounds like free jazz meets post death metal, at times at grindcore speed with mad piano playing that appears to be distorted like a theremin at some points, and the odd manic yell here and there. Too bad they moved on to doing fairly basic industrial rock after this.
>my face every time I hear the "thank you god" riff in Psalm
This album and Rudimentary Peni's Cacophony are the 2 that spring to mind, they are 2 of the 4 albums I consider 10/10s
that album is just half-baked black metal song ideas that go nowhere + gratingly bright production
it does nothing new or interesting, it's just bad songwriting applied to black metal
I like the albums you quoted but I agree, they are in no way unique
being good does not automatically make an album unique
pic related, an actually unique album. not just because I like it, because there is no other like it.
krallice has a similar guitar style but they tend to drag a little too much for my liking. still pretty good.
the closest i've come to that album in terms of feeling would have to be De-Loused, but even that's rather far-fetched
