In this thread, we talk about records that we would consider our favorites, Give recommendations to other users and perhaps grow our collective knowledge about music.

(that, or i'm just that masturbatory that i want to talk about music)

Anyway, here's the skinny: don't just post a video and leave it at that or write some stupid "funny" message. Write a small review as to why you like said record. show me you care enough about what you are presenting.

Alright, to kick things off (and to show as an example of sorts) i'm going to talk about...



BLACK LIPS- ARABIA MOUNTAIN


I love garage rock. I love every single thing about it. I really enjoy the lo-fi qualities, sappy as fuck lyrics about high school sweethearts and the amazingly bussling scene. Especially since it's revival in the late noughties/early 2010's there has been a renaissance with bands like Ty Segall, White Fence, The men, Dirty beaches and of course Black Lips.

Arabia Mountain has been said commonly to be their best album, and i fully agree, amazing variety in songs and sound, and a banging opener and a dope ending make this an album worth checking out. If you're into dancing, getting fucked up with your boys and driving your car all at the same time then for sure you'll like it. A treat for indie fuccbois and crusty punks alike.

Click on the image below cause for some reason i haven't figured out adding video yet...

https://quitaqlip.bandcamp.com/album/cry-baby

One of the most avant-garde albums I’ve heard (even if it doesn’t seem like it’s trying to be) in a very very long time. Playing with the ideas your normal angsty teen with a very self aware sense why he’s upset about numerous topics including religion, relationships, and various different takes on self loathing. Each tracks instrumentals are more of an experiment than the lyrics, switching from noise to various types of very lo-fi and chill waves of sound. It’s without a doubt one of my favorite albums

SHABAZZ PALACES- BLACK UP


For me, together with LIL UGLY MANE and earl sweatshirt, Shabazz palaces is probably one of my favorites when it comes to contemporary hiphop. First being a member of Digable Planets under the name Butterfly, Ishmael Butler (real name) has established himself as one of the fore runners in experimental hiphop of the 21st century in my opinion. After 2 EP's (who are both also amazing in their own respect). Shabazz Palaces' Debut release on Sub Pop, titled black up, has proven to not only the hiphop world but the music community at large what he's capable of. The production is abstract ,akin to Arca with a more tribal/africana infusion in sample and instrument use. and lyrics that adress personality, relationships and deeper meanings of our place in the universe are on point. an absolute joy to listen to from beginning to end. And i'm proud to own this album on wax. Highly recommended from your community music elitist!

Favorite track: A Treatease dedicated to the avian airess from north east nubis (1000 questions, 1 answer) yes thats the actual title.

RADIO SOULWAX- CHERRY MOON ON VALIUM.


being born and growing up in Belgium in the 90's It wasn't a surprise to me that i'd somehow come into contact with the gabber scene. Having friends who had older siblings who were into thunderdome or cherry moon And always being scared of high shool kids who identified as gabbers it was easyto get cassettes or cd's, mostly thunderdome compilations, it was a fad just like grunge, but you could pop into any record or multimedia store and find CD's or tapes, mostly thunderdome and cherry moon.

Towards the end of the 90's gabber music had evolved into something more heavier and faster than it was in the early 90's. Where back then it was a little bit slower (perhaps between 150 to 170 BPM) and of course the acid house explosion in the early 90's in the UK and america leading the helm with the detroit/chicago club techno scene also influenced the music of the time. but there was something distinctly different from the afforementioned scenes.having taken influence from new beat, techno, synth music and of course hardcore techno it fused into this amalgamy of thumping beats, old horror film and ganster rap samples and saw synths. With labels like Bonzai records and R&S records defining the techno landscape of the time in belgium, Holland, France, Italy and germany. Till this day it still has a devoted cult following. Albeit the scene is close to death at this point.

But in 2011. belgian recording duo Soulwax started RSWX (Radio Soulwax); after spending over 2 and a half years encoding their 50 000 record library and started their own online radio station. one of these mixes was "cherry moon on valium". In which they basically slowed down the records from their frantic and dark techno vibe to a more chill and sexy house tempo (around 120 bpm). I love this mix a lot. And it's a really chill listen too. and it's a plus you get to see footage of gabbers doing the signature dance which is called "Hakken" (translated it means chopping) slowed down.

Some of my favorite tracks include Krid Snero- Fuck of death, J'n'J -The Ballet and Rave Crusader - Energy Overload (Acid Changes Mix)

TL; DR:

TURN UP THIS SHIT GO HARD

Favorite albums? Oh fuck.



Mac Miller - Macadelic



If you're looking for quality production, you came to the right album*. Every song has a central theme that ties strongly to the beats.

In Mac's earlier albums the beats feel cookie-cutter, which are only pleasant because of they are sampled from more classic songs. The lyrics are lacking much needed substance.

Macadelic is different from all of Mac's earlier albums. He's quite lyrical on this album. If you fail to find meaning in any of the lyrics, there is a strong, abstract beat backing every song. On this album, Mac Miller dips into more depressing strains of thought; he confronts his codeine addiction in terms of painful love, questions who he is, imagines what it would be like to die tomorrow, and etc.

The darker side of thoughts had attracted me to this album like a magnet. I had great grades, a great plan, but horrible thoughts. I always felt numb to my success and blamed everyone who was close to me whenever I had anxiety (which was always), which was actually caused by me never confronting my feelings. I felt numb to everybody else's problems. Therefore, having a girlfriend felt the same as being alone. Sex only emphasized the loneliness. Every time I tried to think about why I couldn't just feel "normal", I felt ready to cry.

Listening to this album helped me come to peace with my more depressing thoughts; I felt allowed to work and live through my depression, even though I couldn't describe an exact reason why I always wanted to be alone.

Mac Miller puts his lyrics to the test by complimenting beats with in-depth thoughts about existence and success.

Drawing is going so-far-so-good for me, so expect my roster to be up sometime soon.
For now, I'm gonna tell you about my negro Sam Smith's album.



Sam Smith - In The Lonely Hour


My favorite male singer by far. Sam's songs always contain a beautiful pride for emotion. His voice elegantly carries feelings with every lyric. Sam Smith also sounds the exact same when he's singing live. I might actually have to credit him with the reason I practiced enough to be able to sing in public places.

Sam bursts onto the music scene with this beautiful album. At every bend and turn in this album, a listener can feel the deep emotion that's easily portrayed and carried by his soulful singing.

Correctly titled "In The Lonely Hour", this album is rooted with songs of love and loneliness. Happiness is a faint subject when you're listening to these songs. Although, the melody of the music and Sam's voice can make a listener feel the happiness in the loneliness that is unrequited or problematic love. His songs are just too damn emotional and catchy that I couldn't help but want to sing.

Open the heart and mind, and allow oneself to be a bit self-destructive, when listening to this album and feel the beauty that is within the sadness, when being a hopeless romantic.


-SONG RATINGS
[hide]DISCLAIMER: This whole album is jam-packed with beautiful emotion.

a. How correctly the song ties into the album's central theme. (High)
b. The content of the lyrics and how well the beat compliments that content. (Med)
c. How well the features compliment the song. (Low)


1. Money On My Mind (5/5)
2. Good Thing (4/5)
3. Stay With Me (5/5)
4. Leave Your Lover (1/5)
5. I'm Not The Only One (5/5)
6. I've Told You Now (4/5)
7. Like I Can (3/5)
8. Life Support (5/5)
9. Not In That Way (3/5)
10. Lay Me Down (5/5) [/hide]


Enjoy female singers? Ariana Grande's "Yours Truly" happened before she was a diva. It's great.
Want sexy, fuck-love music by a male singer? The Weeknd has wonderful hits. His albums are ehhh.

SAMIYAM- WISH YOU WERE HERE.

Samiyam is a california based hip hop producer. Starting off in 2008 with the album Rap Beats Vol. 1 released via Hyperdub records. Since then he has done numerous collaborations and releases with Flying lotus, Hyperdub brainfeeder, and Stones Throw Records (Quasimoto, Peanut Butter Wolf)

In 2013 he released his third Full length titled Wish you were here. And out of all of his albums it's probably my favorite, i happened to bump into this album (or more specifically the song This L) on a Rejjie Snow mix for Juicy Radio. And thought it sounded dope. Albeit familiar with his debut album, by all means Samiyam is not my favorite producer in hiphop music, but this album shows strong suit in between talented contemporary producers like JonWayne, Shawn Kemp, Sport Life, Knxwledge and many others. Samiyam is a weird anomaly in the scene, he doesn't seem to fit the puzzle completely but at the same time adds so much more than you think. Albeit that he is not a massive name like Flying Lotus. He still generates enough hype and changes his game up enough to not completely fade into the obscure realms of hiphop music.

Overall, i would say that if you're into proper hiphop production, i would say defs give it a listen. It's ethereal, and for sure a fun experience when you are smoking weed chillen out. Same for that Rejjie Snow mix, that shits pretty dope too.

favorite track: This L.

I know I should be focusing on my new drawing techniques, but I feel I should solidify the fact that I listen to A LOT of rap before I grind away on my sketchbook. Also gives me chance to listen back over one of my favorite mixtapes.

I look deeply into lyrics and enjoy clever beats, so here's one of my favorites;


Joey Bada$$ - 1999


This is the first mixtape I heard by Joey Bada$$, because I only found out about him by going from youtube song to youtube song by ways of recommendations.

What instantly attracted me towards having to download the entire mixtape, and replaying it over and over on my phone, is the clean, classic sound and mighty flow. Joey is relentless with his words. He will rhyme almost every word of his verse, and will switch up to help his lyrics get deeper, while proceeding towards a picture that he's lyrically painting for you. Puns and less frequently used words are his favorite tools ~ all of his songs are sprinkled with 'em. And all the beats are so classic or well-fitting to a strong, deep flow that it seems like destiny that he is the one to be rapping over them.

I can't stress enough as to how strong his flow is. Joey exceeds the average mind by murdering the concept he's driving towards with many slick words that collect together like a jigsaw puzzle. His beats are classic and not over demanding, so you are forced to actually feel his complex words and verses. Every word will connect to another and another and another until his message is complete. It's beautiful.

The emotion Joey chooses is always on point. He's rapping to send a message, and not just to rap about his life or what he's going through. His messages are almost always conceptual.

Capital STEEZ, a feature and one of my favorite rappers lyrically, is featured on songs where STEEZ can excel at a concept, which is a wonderful choice by Joey. It's also notable that all the features on this album tend to flow much like Joey does with words and puns.

Give him a listen to if you enjoy great rap music. He's about as classic as it gets without having to go back in time. Welcome to Bada$$'s mixtape: 1999.

Song ratings are based on:
a. How correctly the song ties into the mixtape's central theme. (High)
b. The content of the lyrics and how well the beat compliments that content. (Med)
c. How well the features compliment the song. (Low)

1. Summer Knights (5/5)
2. Waves (2/5)
3. FromdaTomb feat. Chuck Strangers (2/5)
4. Survival Tactics feat. Capital STEEZ (4/5)
5. Killuminati feat. Capital STEEZ (5/5)* This song is legendary
6. Hardknock feat. CJ Fly (3/5)
7. World Domination (4/5)
8. Pennyroyal (3/5)
9. Funky Ho (2/5)
10. Daily Routine (3/5)
11. Snakes feat. T nah Apex (5/5)
12. Don't Front feat. CJ Fly (4/5)
13. Righteous Minds (1/5)
14. Where It At feat. Kirk Knight (5/5)* my favorite song
15. Suspect feat. Everyone from PRO ERA (1/5)* lacks a central message [/hide]


Enjoy the flow, but want it to feel villainous? Check out B4DA$$, by Joey Bada$$.
Want a more light-hearted flow by a clever lyricist? Check out Capital STEEZ.

PERSON OF INTEREST- UNTITLED (2015)


A label that really has been making waves of late is L.I.E.S. records (Long Island Electric Systems). And has been gaining presence through many different channels. with radio stations like NTS, RINSE FM, 1XTRA, casts like Boiler Room, and even having tracks in skateboarding videos (Palace Skateboards) their particular brand of HAU$ MU$IKK is gaining traction.

Person of interest is one of the talented producers on L.I.E.S. And his untitled release from 2015 shows of his competence and creativity that would put many of the big cheese producers to shame. On this 12 Inch we explore the post-house experience. Nihilistic and Haunting yet thumping and sexy. Music to shake your ass too, or music to lurk in your car with, fiending at the chicken spot or on an empty parking lot at 5 in the morning feeling like shit because those pills your friend gave you were dodgy. Compared to many contemporaries the emotion and sound from this album has definite roots or inspiration taken from chicago house, yet the use of synths and samples take their queue from ambient music, drone and plunderphonics. This doesn't take away from how fucking SOLID the production is. the first track "what you think you want" is a 7 minute club banger that defines the post-house movement. "Keep it Moving" goes for a more minimal approach but still retains the emotion that most of this 12" has to offer. "My 97's" is the shortest track, and sounds like something that could be on the OST of some dank ass annie may.

Overall, if you're in the market for some hard, thumping, moody or haunting house music, i can do nothing but recommend this 12". P.O.I. brings a refreshing angle to the genre of house music. A genre that in the public eye has the negative tendency to become stagnant. But on this 12" and probably most of L.I.E.S. releases you're in for a nice treat to find that they are still down to push the envelope.

If you enjoyed this you'll enjoy: Delroy Edwards, Florian Kupfer, UTTU HAUS RECS, Palace.

LUMPY PRESENTS: HALLOWEEN MIXTAPE SERIES.

oh man, where do i start with this wild ride. Lumpy is one of the members of Lumpy and the dumpers. And from what i gathered has associations with a lot of the mid-western american punk scene. musicians like Erik Nervous or the coneheads. thats basically the abridged version, because the weirdo punk scene is not super accessible, releasing limited ranges of cassettes and sometimes vinyl. Luckily, a lot of these artists have a bandcamp in which you can get their stuff for dirt cheap or even free. But the roots go deep. And there are alot of obscurities out there.

Since 2012 Lumpy makes a rad as fuck Halloween with the best music to bump during the halloween celebrations. whether you're probably either being a melvin or being completely thrashed. there is always something for everyone to enjoy. My personal favorite is the 2015 one, subtitled; A 22 COURSE FEAST SUITABLE ONLY FOR GHOULS. an amazingly fun mix of hard thumping noise rock, garage rock madness, weirdo punk, gloomy country songs and some classic metal riffage (RIP Lemmy). Really, This is the essence of halloween. and even listening to it outside of halloween season it's a blast. It's halloween all year round if you want it to be.

Some of the highlights from the tape are the coneheads, the misfits, Motorhead, Geza X, Stick men with rayguns and packshot.

If you enjoyed this i definitely recommend all of the names in this write up.

This album is amazing. Hospice is a concept album from The Antlers, using a cancer ward as a metaphor for an abusive relationship. It's sad and beautiful. It's hard for me to pick the best individual songs cuz I really think you should listen to all of it in one go (especially because of how well the songs fade into each other), but my personal favorites are:



I'm starting to realize how much I enjoy concept albums. It's really cool listening to a story unfold over the course of an album, especially one that draws you in so emotionally. Very powerful. Kinda wish I had known about this album when my grandmother passed away due to cancer in the summer of 2014. But maybe it's better this way.



This is one of my favorite albums! ...Like Clockwork, by Queens of the Stone Age, is a concept album about a troubled young man joining an end-of-the-world cult. A lot of the themes are heavily inspired by the near-death experience of the frontman, Josh Hommes, who was bedridden for months after a botched knee surgery. And it shows. The dude clearly poured himself and his depression into these songs.

My favorite tracks are:

Just to be a nobhead i decided to post in every thread no one cares about, and not post in threads people care about. So here we go, it's been since the whole Xin fiasco i've been in here so i'm just gonna recommend an album, song(s) and EP i've been fucking with:

1. NEO NEOS- NEO NEO NEO NEO NEO NEO NEOS

[youtube]
[/youtube]

for anyone who knows me for the hardcore or general music geek i am you know i can't get enough of a good punk release. Now i know what you might be thinking "oh fuck here he goes again with his gay hipster bullshit", which is cool, to each their own, and since i'm gay why don't you suck my dick you pussy ass homos. Bet you couldn't even handle this fuckin rocket cock.

anyway, NEO NEOS is a one man punk project from Min(n)eapolis based asshole mad genius manbaby Connie Voltaire, and i tell you what this is some bratty ass punk music that cries not to be taken seriously. And i don't think Connie even geuinely gives a shit if you like his stuff. But either way it's fun, eclectic and stupid. Just as punk always was and needs to be. I would say if you liked the halloween mixtapes i posted earlier in this thread you'll like this as well.

2. FREDDIE DREDD- DEATH VALLEY EP.

If you like memphis rap shit in the vein of Lady Bee, Skinny Pimp or Gimisum Family you'll like this. Fuck it i just named a bunch of names that you don't know. Lazy fuck; use google or youtube you weak lames. And quit listening to the beatles they SUCK DES.

I don't know much about freddie dredd or main producer on this EP Ryan C. But what i can tell you is that if you enjoy heavy bass shit to blast out of your slab while you swerve this 'll defs do. You can find the EP on their soundcloud right here.

3. SOME FUCKING SONGS.


because why the hell would i only post like 1 fucking song. So here's a few of them i enjoyed.

ROSS FROM FRIENDS-DURUM WHEAT
PAUL WALL- SITTIN SIDEWAYS (CHOPPED AND SCREWED)
MALL GRAB-DRIVE/I'VE ALWAYS LIKED GRIME*
TLIM SHUG- $ITTIN
EZEKEY- DUSTY DO LITTLE
THE LYMAN WOODARD ORGANISATION- ON YOUR MIND

Fuck it.
