Anyone here a fan of Worlds End Girlfriend? I like a lot of his stuff, with Cruel Girl's Beauty being a personal favorite. What about you anons, any favorite songs/albums?
The way he writes the songs is really cool, if a bit strange. For Seven Idiots, he recorded vocals with normal instrumentation, then removed the vocals and went nuts chopping and moving stuff about. I wonder what his process for Hurtbreak Wonderland was?
He sort of has two big things, more classically inspired music and pretty crazy pop-like stuff. If you'd prefer then pop stuff, then the album Seven Idiots is great, if you prefer the classical stuff then Hurtbreak Wonderland is good.
Holy shit, I didn't even know. Thank you!
This is the only album I've heard all the way through by him but I really enjoy it and I enjoy the other stuff I've heard by him. also I've heard the album with Mono all the way through
I can't think of anybody off the top of my head for his pop/rocky stuff, but as far as the more mellow stuff goes I guess the Avalanches? They have the same kinda choppy sound, but they're not as out there.
sorry if it's not quite what you're looking for
Only currently own Hurtbreak Wonderland, "100 Years of Choke" is my favorite song by his.
I found out about WEG on /mu/, so I'd expect people to like him on here.
He's releasing a new record called 4時間33分 (4 Hours and 33 Minutes—clearly a play on Cage's composition; he's also doing a double time cover of "4'33"" called "2'16"", haha—on the 31st of April. Look forward to that, I guess. This is apparently a track off this forthcoming record: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wfw0NKaFBxQ&feature=youtu.be
You can keep track of his music, and of his compatriots, on his label, Virgin Babylon Records.
Pretty good prices for damn good songs, if you choose to buy them.
I'm planning to get Seven Idiots when I can get to that. But first, I have a bunch of records I need to listen to.
Here's another new track, just found it. So good.
Anyway, I've heard all of his studio albums, Hurtbreak and The Lie Lay Land are by far the best. So much beauty in those albums. His earlier ones are pretty solid too.
