Title: Music Round-Robin
Post by Morphy on Jun 24th, 2018 at 7:46pm
Post one song that defines your mood at the moment of posting.

You can post as many times as you like but just one song at a time for brevity's sake please.

I and I'm sure others would like to try and listen to some new music that people post and if you post a Best of: Anthology that might be a bit more than we could do! Thanks!  ;)

Here's where I'm at; classic tune.

@CA: Ha! With a baby, a toddler, a side business, and a day job to juggle, I think ďwhere did it go?Ē  Is a good description of my brain on some days, and accomplishing anything is like attempting to sing along with that song... Iím going way too fast and have no idea whatís going on! Thatís especially true on those days where I was up at 3am changing diapers. Plus the song is so shockingly stupid that it makes me laugh every time I hear it... but thatís probably also the sleep deprivation :)

When I heard the first part of the first song you posted I was thinking, "Nooc is into some kind of strange indie-punk-pop fusion, cool", but by the end of the song I really have no idea what kind of music that was lol. I listened to a few more songs from them to try to place it. Still can't.† ;D


@Mersa- I totally get it bro. Lol. Good times.

@Morphy: DMC is normally classified as ďpunkĒ or indie punk or surfer punk (but not ďsurfĒ like Dick Dale), but they are hard to pin down with the strange mix of 50ís rock undertones, indie acoustics, and punk. There was a drastic shift from the first to the second album too. I really like the first album personally, but it gets much more confusing if you donít keep the albums separate, because itís basically a completely different band after that.

If youíre trying to figure me out based on my choice of music, you should know that I donít take myself too seriously most of the time.

I do the same, mostly because hip hop and rap have been taking over here in the US and good rock bands aren't as mainstream as they used to be. I find myself retreating into the old standbys of classic rock, which is not good considering good music is still being created.

Oooo talking of good new music but in relation to old music, Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats is a good one to check out if you like anything close to Sabbath. Their album The Night Creeper is really good. They recorded it using original 70's equipment and it's just... heavy. It really feels like the Manson and suicide cults side of the 70's. The acid trips of the 60's are going sour and everything is a bit... menacing. Great stuff.

This is my baseline..well sort of. Any music that has that trippy, ethereal quality to it is right up my alley. Doesn't have to be as depressing as this one, but anything with that feel. Sarosh's song from the anime show was sort of edging in that direction. Other examples like Speak to me/breathe from  Pink Floyd, alot of new waveish synth music like Depeche Mode, and Muse all sort of fit in.

If you know any bands like that KTO I would love to check them out.

I think I know something you might like Morphy that's maybe a bit similar to Soma.

https://youtu.be/jih29bmwOSY

Melvins are my favourite band and I firmly believe everyone on the planet can find at least one song they like of theirs. They've covered so many different styles, it's impossible to not like something. The song above is a little... dark. It's kind of a happy little tune with super dark lyrics that then goes very psychadelic...

"I cut the throat of a billy goat and let it bleed,
His frozen eyes were far more than I,
It's kind of nice,
To know the things that make me happy,
Just realize,
Keep the dog away from me..."

So pretty dark...

Title: Re: Music Round-Robin
Post by kicktheotter on Jun 29th, 2018 at 3:28pm
This song is quite possibly my favourite song ever. It's certainly the best cover of a song ever produced. The original version is the theme tune to the old 70's British sitcom Are You Being Served?, a thoroughly camp silly comedy set in a department store.

Coil covered the theme and... transformed it. They took a comedy shows opening theme listing the floors of a department store and elevated it to this hauntingly beautiful, angelic piece. The juxtaposition of this stupid theme tune with their treatment of it and the fact one of Coil's members, Johnn Balance, died before it was released, is just... incredible. It's absurd and wonderful and sad and... the lyrics are just listing shopping departments but sounds like the choir announcing your arrival in heaven. I love it. I'm going to have it at my funeral.

It's funny, despite having sported a mohawk for 2 years now I'm not actually all that knowledgeable on punk. People always ask me if I like punk and technically I do but I haven't actually listened to very much of it. My dad was an original punk back in the day (Once he came home with two coloured squares in bleach blonde hair, one pink square and one blue. I'm told my grandmother was not impressed...) but his tastes changed so I didn't really grow up listening to punk. I've sort of come to punk late (really late) but I really wish punk would have a proper revival. The political and social climate is there, now we just need the energy :D

Title: Re: Music Round-Robin
Post by Morphy on Aug 13th, 2018 at 8:20am
While I'm not a huge fan of punk I've always appreciated that style of music. The mindset of putting political and social grievance into rock makes sense to me. Weirdly enough I admire the movement but don't really care for the music which is the central part of it.

If it did have a revival what direction do you think it would be in? Brexit maybe? I don't know much about what's going on over there.

Title: Re: Music Round-Robin
Post by kicktheotter on Aug 13th, 2018 at 9:04am
There are some that argue Mozart was a punk because in a lot of ways he embodied it's spirit as going against the popular grain at the time. I mean he now has an entire Wikipedia page dedicated to his love of scatological humour.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mozart_and_scatology

That's pretty punk. It's definitely more a state of mind for me and in that way the music isn't so much the main point of it.

I think if Britain had a punk revival it would be almost exactly the same topics for the songs as it was the first time round. The current Tories idolise Thatcher and seem pretty committed to continuing her ideas. The rich getting richer, the poor getting poorer, inequality, homelessness, unemployment, classism. The recent trend of looking back to the 80s for politics, fashion and media (Stranger Things anyone?) has been very strong and I'm kind of surprised the music hasn't come back with it. Like I said, it's the perfect breeding ground for punk right now. Politicians are feeling more remote than ever despite social media and there is a sort of hopelessness creeping in generally in a lot of areas of society which will either lead to people completely giving up or getting really pissed off. Judging by how common protests and counter protests are getting, it should be only a matter of time until Johnny Rotten 2.0 pops up.

Ok. I've posted stuff on here before that I was fairly sure no-one else would like. I know pretty much for a fact no-one else will like this guy's music (which I only discovered today) BUT the way in which he makes it is actually pretty fascinating so I'll post the short documentary where he explains what he does THEN the music :D

Sarosh almost single-handedly got me wanting to watch Anime with that song he submitted. I sort of went half way and watched the Daft Punk Album movie Interstella 5555.† My daughter has seen it 3-4 times already and loves it. If you guys know of a good next step for a 9 year old girl (9 going on 16 if you know what I mean) please feel free to submit something. She needs something with good music and girls in the main storyline.

@Drakolith
what's the first you watched?
I have seen some but i can't compare them with each other they just stir up different emotions.
fma brotherhood was the first i completed. and one piece was the first i started.

@Morphy
for that age i would recommend
avatar the last airbender and
legend of korra .

the only anime i can think of with female main characters are: "mary the virgin witch" , "made in abyss". both not for 9 year olds.

cowboy bebop and samurai champloo have very good music. for other anime it could be that the anime makes the music good when you connect it with certain emotions.

i wonder what others might suggest.

The only anime I've watched is Death Note. Not really suitable for a 9 year old I guess but so clever and intricate and it's interesting in that the main character is the definition of an anti-hero. Very philosophical at points and truly one of my favourite series. I think everyone should watch it just to consider the questions it throws up.

Thank you for the advice there Sarosh. I'll check them out. I've heard great things about The Last Airbender, maybe that would be a good start.

KTO, I watched the Death note live action movie on Netflix. The idea behind it is really interesting. I am a big fan of anything with Willem Dafoe so figured it was worth a watch. I liked it a lot. Have you seen it? I suspect like most such movies the remake is not as good as the original but still quite good to me anyways.

Also I watched some of the stuff you posted and although I don't know that genre well it sort of/kind of reminded me of Nine Inch Nails. You ever get into Reznors stuff?

I was a teenager when Quake 1 was first coming out and he did the soundtrack for it. He did a phenomenal job on it. Of course I loved that game so much there may be just a little bit of nostalgia involved in my opinion.  ;)

I haven't seen the Netflix movie but of what I did see... Yeah you should watch the actual series :D

I would describe Author & Punisher as "Industrial Doom metal". NIN is pretty close really but I've never really got into them. I kind of like the bands that inspired Reznor more than the stuff Reznor has done (Coil and Throbbing Gristle). I find NIN a bit too... this is going to sound weird but a bit too pop music. I feel like NIN is Industrial music with some of the edges shaved off. Stuff like Throbbing Gristle is far more "raw".

The Quake soundtrack is great and reminds me of the latest Doom incarnation's soundtrack which I've been greatly enjoying. Doom's is a bit more fast paced and closer to more traditional metal but I wouldn't be surprised if there was some inspiration taken from Quake.

Who would have guessed one of the, if not the, best covers of a Rage Against the Machine song would come from a rapper? I can't stop listening to it.

I like music that evokes emotion and think the primary objective of music should be to do that. I can find music in pretty much every genre that I like just because in every genre at least one person or group is going to be using that style to evoke emotion in an effective way. Take my opinion with a pinch of salt though because I also believe music doesn't have to sound pleasant to be good which a lot of people disagree with :D One of my favourite songs is Discipline by Throbbing Gristle.

I don't listen to rap or metal or most mainstream music. Although if the tune of mainstream music is good I might listen to a piano cover of it. I like simple instrumental songs. Acoustic guitar is another instrument I really like.

They've been saying rock is dead for decades but now I suspect rock may really be dead. Hip Hop has taken over and I'm sorry to people who like hip hop and rap, I really am, but I cannot get into that music. It makes me cringe. Whenever I hear hip hop I put my head phones on with a repeating loop of nails on a chalk board for some relief.

Rock, especially classic rock is the soundtrack of my life. All my best times have been accompanied by bands such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Aerosmith, The Eagles, The Rolling Stones etc. Muse is another more modern band that has attained instaclassic status, despite a most unfortunate association with a certain movie saga that shall not be named.

Rock isn't dead. These days, the internet lets anyone listen to anything at any time. I think the days of chart toppers is dead because every genre has split up and fractured into a million sub-genres and everyone can find the exact music they like without compromising and creating a mainstream hit, but that stopgap means every genre is represented by someone, somewhere. It can be harder to find them but they're out there.

I wouldnt say rock is dead, i still know lots of people who like rock like me, there just isnt really any new bands if that is what you mean, although i believe thats actually due more to the fact a lot of the older popular bands are still around rather than people not liking it. My favorite, ACDC.

When I say rock may be dead it has more to do with it no longer being the "gravitational force" around which the youth culture is focused.† It may be different in Europe ( I hope!) But here in the States Hip Hop has pretty much taken over. There is a form of popish rock but eh... it has no soul. Yes there's still rock stations putting out new tunes but among the youth it's more and more rare to find ones that know good rock n roll. Once you lose the youth you essentially have a genre that's going the way of blues and jazz.

When I was a teen, damn that makes me sound ancient, but it was the opposite. It was all new types or genres of rock and on the side a growing group of hip hop/rap. Now, at best it's the opposite though you could even make the case it's dominant hip hop/rap and an ever shrinking group of rock.

Based on what I've seen I think Europe is different. Britain has always been the hub of good music (with a few exceptions) You guys have to carry the torch haha. I hope.
