What're you listening to? [Music Recs/Chart Sharing]

Post by Fresh » Wed Dec 25, 2019 5:55 pm

thought I'd start a general music rec topic for people looking to share music tastes, expand their usual listening and discuss what they've been listening to on a day-to-day basis. you can pretty easily make charts to share music you listen to - though I hear live.fm does it automatically, I personally just use neverendingchartrendering.org, since you can pretty easily include things that might not be picked up by your streaming services. check it out!

here's a 3x3 of my recent listens:

been spinning a lot of folk punk and a lot of shoegaze, recently. it's just that time of year. the winter is gloomy, but all seasons need to feel a little uplifting, no? would absolutely recommend listening to cultdreams, one of my favorite discoveries of the year - their recent album, things that hurt, is easily one of my top 3 AOTY.

though I also normally DETEST christmas music with a passion, I make an exception for sufjan stevens. the man can do no wrong

I've been listening lately to this fairly obscure scrapped project from former Jamiroquai bassist Stuart Zender called AZUR. Recorded between 1999 and 2002, whole thing was recorded but was abandoned by the label for unknown reasons. Here's one of my favorite tracks from it, but the whole album is pure soul-filled bliss.

I'm listening to the Charlie Brown Christmas album even though I'm pretty sure Christmas happened a couple weeks ago. Don't ask me why.

Also, please do y'allselves a favor and listen to both Tally Hall and Math the Band. You won't regret it.

1. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard is the shit, and such is an irrefutable fact. They just fuckin rock. They've got a little something for everybody, but if you're interested, I'm In Your Mind Fuzz is probably their best album, with "Cellophane" or "Am I In Heaven?" being my favorite songs on the album. If that doesn't tickle your fancy, give Infest the Rat's nest a shot. They've also got some more lo-fi stuff like "Her and I" "The River" and all of Float Along Fill Your Lungs (with the exception of "Head on/Pill") Check them out.
2. If you already like King Gizz, you will also probably like Oh Sees (or Thee Oh Sees). They came out with a new album, Face Stabber, over the summer, which is just absolutely bonkers, but their favorite album of mine is Orc.
3. SilvaGunner has been doing an event where a team of remixers takes songs from different sources, (Jet Set Radio, Danganronpa, French House as a genre, the Eminem discography, etc.), giving characters to those sources, remixing music from those sources, and then making the characters fight in a tournament style bracket over who has the better remixes. It's called King For Another Day (this is the second one) and much of the music produced in the tournament is better than most music I hear getting produced today. There are even some original pieces, check it out.
4. As you can tell by my PfP, The Beatles are rad. If you haven't been a fan of more mainstream, conventional musicals like Hamilton, The Yellow Submarine is definitely for you. Really it's for you if you just like movies in general. It's super solid, but you have to go into it with the mindset of 'weird stupid silly psychedelic shit.'
5. Justice is awesome, but if you have even a passing interest in electronic music you've probably already heard that. For my money, they're even better than Daft Punk.
And that's really all there is to say on the matter

As a Melbournian, I used to be an absolute die-hard King Gizz fan because we're, like, legally obliged to be, but lately I've gotten kinda burned out on them since they're kinda part of a trend of Aussie artists making it big overseas and kinda leaving their home country behind (really shown by Gizz announcing their big spectacular XV-ALBUMS THREE HOUR marathon shows and not holding a single one in Australia) which, as an Aussie music fan, is kinda sad :/

In their absence, I've been really getting into Tropical Fuck Storm, another band on the Flightless label which does basically the same stuff Gizzard does but it's noisier and like, More Bogan if you know what I mean. They've got two almost perfect studio albums, and their track Maria 63 from this year's album was my song of the year, it's such a perfect way to close such a mindblowing album. Don't you dare listen to the song on its own, you basically are required to listen to the whole album to really feel the punch of it.


Here's another song of theirs!

I love weird unreleased shit! I used to listen to a lot of les rallizes denudes, a weird japanese 70s psychedelic noise rock band that only has bootlegs of their live performances and never produced a studio album (I think?) last I heard, the frontman had gone into hiding because he was suspected for helping to participate in the drummer's plane hijacking in the name of the japanese red army. wild stuff. thanks for the rare!

I recommend starting off with Stupid and Weird, then moving onto their own self-cover album, Math the Band The Band The Album, then listening to everything else from there.

Neil Peart just died, so me, my family, and some friends have all been going back and listening to Rush in a full discography marathon

This man's lyrics changed my life, his drumming changed rock music as a whole, and he will be sorely missed. I really wish I could have gotten to see them live before they disbanded, and I'm sending my love to Geddy, Alex, and Neil's family

everyone listen to 2112, this is an order

I've been on this kick of weird synth-y Japanese dnb sounding music that is technically called electro/dance music but doesn't feel like it. Stuff like Machine Girl, and SewerSlvt. It's got this really weird feeling about it, like you're simultaneously on sedatives and stimulants. I super recommend giving it a listen. I've also heard Death Grips are good, but they never really clicked for me. I personally find Kobaryo more akin to my tastes.

Uh, whatever this is.

Been listening to a lot of relaxing new age synth stuff, as well as a bunch of obscure funky jazz fusion albums. Can't remember any of their names since they're all just sorta found on youtube. Never been all that good at remembering names and titles of most things.

I've been waiting to talk about this. I really like stuff like this.



It's a pretty rare 'genre' of music, the kind of which I can only really find if I'm very lucky on Youtube or if I look up Japanese rhythm game songs. It's because their melody is so intense and there's like, five different things going on at once that makes them easy to make difficult for rhythm games.
I've heard it called 'artcore', but apparently that's not even recognized enough to have its own Wikipedia article. The closest thing I have to something most people who are into music that I talk to would understand is 'happy hardcore', and that doesn't feel close enough to what I want personally.
