Is there a band that probably only /mu/ knows about? I feel like this one qualifies. i don't know a single person outside of here that knows who they are.
I know a couple people who were into them who were into like Merchant Ships and stuff but other than that they had a pretty loyal local following.
Nowadays its mostly just /mu/.
Even with the people who like em on here, this fucking brilliant demo gets ignored a lot.
it really is. I showed this to my best friend and his girlfriend and they fell in love with it. I really wish they got a bit more exposure cause I'm sure they wouldn't be the only other 2 people to like it
I'm gonna recommend this album to a girl in a couple days, she likes the Front Bottoms also. What song should I show her? Can't Run Away isn't cathartic enough and the rest might be too much
Actually, not really for either of them, especially not Radiohead. Sure, there's Creep but I know some people who love OK Computer. My best friend loves Kid A, and her best friend legit loves them.
I wish this thread could be emo but I only like shit emo.
All their albums are available here- https://www.mediafire.com/?xf3mqf3hj3qbq (these are official downloads from the band so don't feel bad about stealing shit not like I expect people to here)
that song is on "Demo?" but download the rest of their shit too- Okumay is my favorite release and "45 Minutes from 'Somewhere Out There" is my favorite song by them
pic related: best modern emo record of our times. in an emo thread a few weeks ago, a guy who is friends with the band let me know they have a new product coming out and he actually sent me some unmastered tracks and it was incredible. few days later the guy from the actual band sent me the whole finished mastered tape and holy shit, /mu/ isnt ready. it's gold
wait for it, it's called Mimisiku - Underwhelming
forgot pic. the same band is compiled of the guitarist/singer and drummer from two knights and father figure.
Scott Walker. He's not even that popular here; I discovered him by dumb luck. The only older people that are into him are like the proto-dadrock crowd, most of whom are as reclusive as the artist himself. The people I've tried to introduce him to that otherwise have very similar taste to me never seem to like him.
They're actually worshipped in twinkle circles, but at the end of the day it's still /mu/core
Also masked dancers still one of my fav albums of all time
Also also I met Adam last summer, he's an absolute sweetheart. I asked how he came up with half the shit and he doesn't even know. Some people just got it.
You won't find this shit anywhere, only a live show on youtube
Brave little abascus is one of my favorite bands ever. i still have no idea what their background is or what happened to them. I only first heard Okumay about a year ago, did they break up after Okumay, or was Okumay a posthumous release?
I don't live in Texas or know those dudes but Ive talked to Parker on ig a few times, he is so chill. Every project that I've known that he's involved in has been so consistent and they are constantly evolving. Father figure was straight screamo, two Knights was a nice blend of mathy emo and screamo, but mimisiku is their first pure emo record. it's so damn good
The unofficial timeline is as followed:
2007- ska band Eggplant Danceoff breaks up
2008- Brave Little Abacus forms of former members, mainly as a studio act
May 2008- demo released - digital only
August 2008- split w/ Matt Aspinwall released on digital and CDr
Early 2009- first documented shows
Summer 2009- masked dancers released - digital and CD
Late 2009- lots of new material written, most of it only played live
Early 2010- recording starts on discomfort, original version scrapped
May 2010- final version of Discomfort released, digital only
/mu/ discovers the BLA. Adam himself self promotes for a few weeks.
Late 2010- band goes on hiatus to focus on school
Early 2011- okumay sessions start
Summer 2011- okumay completed, released to friends
Holiday 2011- BLA annouces break up
January 2012- okumay officially released
I think that's everything.
They definitely used to be, but they are much more well known now. I do feel like /mu/ made up at least 60-70% of their fanbase for a few years after Deathconsciousness came out, though.
