damn puttin all this pressure on me
why though? does he have something on his chart that you'd expect me to really hate or love?
what did you think of mac demarco btw? never listened to his stuff and not sure if i intend to
i don't really like it but i can't say i hate it too much either
He has a lot of hip hop and shit on his chart and I was wondering if you were going to like his collage or hate it or just feel indifferent
He's alright, nothing ground breaking but pretty good and worth a listen
These are probably his best songs on the album, if you don't like them you won't like the album at all
I'll probably buy both of his albums on vinyl tonight since they're quite cheap
0/0, sorry mates
Can give bluegrass recs.
Also I can give some folk metal/folky black metal recs but people tend to shit on me for liking that for some reason.
i've heard the first song before and i kinda dig it
the second one isn't bad either
it's serene and inoffensive and there's always a time for that, i'll check it out whenever
and on the topic of OP's chart i couldn't really care less. aside from wu tang and kool keith it's got the kinda rap on it that i couldn't give a fuck about if i tried
Tengger Cavalry (not really black metal, but you should check then out anyway)
I have all those in my library, but thanks for the recs. Tengger Cavalry is an especially big favorite of mine. I love non-anglo/scandinavian folk metal.
I especially like a lot of Middle Eastern folk metal - Aeternam and Al-Namrood on my collage, but also Melecesh, Narjahanam and Darkestrah. I wish I could find more.
I like you
Your taste has
Also, Hidria Spacefolk, I listened to Balansia and liked a lot, are all their albums good?
You seem fresh
are we friends on lastfm
I'm thinking about leaving mu FOREVER so you should hit me there
I don't think anyone believes that Mac Demarco is amazing because he's not trying to be, He's trying to do his own thing and just be chilled out and enjoy himself which I can appreciate. I hate when people believe that what they've made is intelligent and has a deeper meaning or whatever and It's refreshing to see Mac embrace the other side of the coin
Forgot Drudkh and Empyrium, but you probably know them. Maybe this chart will help
wow man are you sure this is what you want
but iirc you're gonna pursue some kind of education and that's great so i won't try and stop you
but yeah we're friends on last.fm (i think)
just in case hmu @ hedlund12345
If I don't find a QT by tomorrow night I'm gonna be alone on valentines. Maybe I should have sniffed that girls hair earlier.
Sorry I nostalgiad and listened to AILD

I really need to start trying new music out more regularly again. My taste has gotten so stagnant. Think I'm ready to go back into being almost all about metal for a bit
>I like you
>are all their albums good?
Dunno, I've only listened to that one. They are a little too far out there for me to really get into them.
I am familiar with Empyrium (Weiland is one of my fav. neofolk albums), not Drudkh. And yeah I know that chart, it's how I got away from listening to nothing but Turisas and Alestorm.
+ Can, TMV
idk I'm tired and shit
I noticed how almost everyone here listen to the same stuff
Even when they listen to "different stuff" is also the same stuff
I spend my days here unimpressed and demotivated
I feel like a dork in a see of dorks
In other news I was looking at my Lastfm neighbors
50% boring brazilians, 50% old people from eastern Europe
I think I'll have to look for friends in Poland or some terrible place like that
I'm not sure if it's you guys that did this to me. But when I first started coming to this board, I loved metal of all sorts. Then i started really not liking it. As of recently i'm extremely bored of most rock music. Thanks /mu/ you fuckin dicks
++Sufjan, Slowdive, The Microphones
+NMH, The Beach Boys
-Knife Man (I like AAJ but not this album too much)
Old Crow Medicine Show - Old time, folksy, skilled, lots of great albums and tracks. Good variety as well, from truly ancient folk tunes to dixieland jazz to party songs to lovelorn ballads. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gX1EP6mG-E
Ralph Stanley - really oldschool, great vocals and fantastic banjo picking. Frequent collaborations. Plays a lot of ancient folk songs and bluegrassified gospel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1UZ0QyNs18
Sweet Sunny South - laid back, fun, and talented. Hard to find, I don't think they have any songs or anything on YouTube. I have a mega somewhere for my favorite album of theirs.
Abigail Washburne - solo banjo, created a unique style of music: a mixture of authentic American and Chinese folk music. Inspired by Bela Fleck in a lot of ways. Experiments with the banjo a lot. Great lullaby vocals. One of the best clawhammer players I know. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J95Yku_U2DI
Doc Watson - more folk than bluegrass, but he's the best bluegrass guitar picker basically ever. He pretty much invented bluegrass guitar picking; he played melodies so fast that somebody suggested he could probably play fiddle tunes on the guitar, so he did. Lots of good bluesy guitar songs, as well as harmonica and banjo. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NJgAcJPnZk
Alan Jackson - bigtime Nashville country music star, but he wrote and recorded The Bluegrass Album, and god fucking dammit it blew me away. Best bluegrass album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oopmO85iO4
Bill Monroe - mandolin player. Pretty old school, not a huge fan of that rigidly traditional style, but he's definitely part of the heart of bluegrass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeOXgh4lTjY
Flatt & Scruggs - probably the most famous bluegrass players, renowned for their blazing speed. Wrote a number of the most well known tunes, pioneered a style of banjo picking. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6RvI6ZI2JWc
try The Dodos - Beware of the Maniacs
The Durutti Column - Return of the Durutti Column
>I noticed how almost everyone here listen to the same stuff

dude same, since new years I rarely feel like coming here.
Iron Horse - bluegrass versions of metal songs. Surprisingly good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3c7bISLhVl8
Carolina Chocolate Drops - bringing bluegrass back to its roots by incorporating negro spirituals and similar themes, while simultaneously experimenting with more modern black cultural elements, including beatboxing. Weird, but really really talented and creative. Also use some of the most primitive bluegrass instruments, like the jug and the bones. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xOxHyTP91c
The SteelDrivers - great bluegrass with bluesy attitude. Sexy fucking vocals, goddamn. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OG8Y7wDUVo

not sure if i should feel honored or left out
>I rarely feel like coming here.
yo i almost never feel like coming here but i still do every day
this is just how 4chan works it sucks you in
i feel you but i am now slightly self conscious about my taste
good on you if you manage to gtfo
Damn that's awesome
I mean, there was a point in my life where I truly enjoyed coming here, but I feel like I've experienced all I can from /mu/, and coming here is basically fruitless.
I used to see so many things I never had before, and loved finding new things, but 99% of /mu/ listens to the same shit, and the 1% that doesn't still listens to the same shit.

if i didnt give you a rec im sorry, i didnt know any of the albums
There are still cool people around like people who usually post in these threads
And that bluegrass guy
And the field recording dude
Sometimes I think music is just a phase and I'll get tired of it but then I see those rym profiles
You know, those with long ass descriptions and tons of 5 stars, and he reviews stuff like psybient and tango music, not because he likes obscure stuff but because he enjoys that genre
And you see that the guy is some 40-year-old dude from Slovakia and you think man this guy can love music I wonder if I'll enjoy music as much as he does any day
Digimon Adventures 3
>There are still cool people around like people who usually post in these threads
It's the reason I haven't just up and left, I haven't given up hope entirely that there is something worth coming here for.
RYM is basically my /mu/ replacement, because nobody has to talk about a release for me to be able to find it. I still love music, I still love discussing it, but on /mu/ I very seldom have fulfilling musical discussion, and it sucks.
these r good
le entry level moo drone

Does Pelagial hold up to the quality of Helio/Anthro and Precambrian?
2/2 + Mezzanine, Replica
2/2 + 808s, WfaD
I've just realized saying "proggy djent" is kind of a tautology, since, at least according to RYM, djent is a subgenre of progressive metal; I probably meant proggy in the sense that I feel a really prog rock esque sensibility in the overall songwriting of the album
>Does Pelagial hold up to the quality of Helio/Anthro and Precambrian?
Pelagial is my first Ocean album and I wasn't too fond of it. The Avenged Sevenfold-esque clean vox and djentish sections killed it for me. The softer, more atmospheric sections never really succeeded at setting a certain scene either. The heavier parts were fucking insane though.
I have the same feelings about it. It has some really amazing tracks, and some really forgettable tracks. Not sure if it will beat out the new TesseracT album for best djent album of the year, but it'll be close. As for melodic djent, Shell From Oceanic's Ambivalence us a really good instrumental album they I think you should check out
4x4 because im a fucking pleb and can't count
>inb4 shit taste
I know i need recs, looking to diversify / develop my tatses
Check out Mount Eerie (Wind's Poem, Sauna) if you liked The Microphones.
Check out Digable Planets and Shabazz Palaces if you liked A Tribe Called Quest. If you like hip-hop with good production and instrumentals, check out Dalek (From Filthy Tongues...).
If you liked NMH, you could try out Angel Olsen (Half Way Home, Strange Cacti, Burn Your Fire). She plays indie-folk with country influence and minimal instrumentation.
If you like Flotus, you could try out Oneohtrix Point Never.
If you like Bjork, try out Glasser. If you haven't tried out Bjork, check out Homogenic, Post, Vespertine, Vulnicura, and Medulla.
Dunno how many of these you already know. Hope I gave you some new recs!
OH and check out Tim Hecker if you're interested in ambient/drone. His whole discography is great but I'd recommend "Haunt Me", "Harmony in Ultraviolet", and "Virgins". All three are fantastic.
Alright, just gonna list things I have in common & want to get into more. Sorry if I miss/skip you.
Caribou, Ideal Cities, Group Sex
Father John Misty, TMV, Mount Eerie, Studio
Whirr, This Mortal Coil, Fever Ray
Slowdive, The Microphones
Even As We Speak, Go Sailor
None in common but going to check out some of them.
Only have The Black Dog in common but going to check out a couple of your artists.
None in common other than the obvious.
Swans, TMV, Bjork,Isis
...used to be into anberlin a lot.
MY MOUTH IS FILLED WITH HIS OVARRIES
Grouper, Interpol, but already listened to both to death. Just started listening to This Will Destroy You recently. Also Car Seat Headrest.
Kahimi Karie, Yoko Kanno. Less of the latter.
Mount Eerie, Slowdive, Man Bites Dog, Titus, Talk Talk, Harold Budd.
None really that I'm into there, but I've listened to many of those albums in passing.
Astrobrite and Slowdive.
Milo, MASS OF THE FERMENTING DREGS.
Ratking, Flying Lotus- Fleet Foxes got stale pretty quick for some reason.
Going to check out a couple of these recs as well.
