I refuse to believe that anyone can dislike Archandroid whatever else you're into.
Erm I dunno, I don't listen to any other bands that sound like A Hawk & A Hacksaw, but I probably should.
Within your 'purview'? Where do you think you are, some fucking regency costume drama? This is a government department, not some fucking Jane fucking Austen novel!
Not they I dislike all pop music, but I can't really turn on pop radio often and expect to hear something I enjoy
but there's some good things going on in that genre. I like the new Beyonce and Lloyd albums.
that Beyonce is pretty nice. i like Love on Top, 1+1 & I Miss You but it's not Sasha Fierce
yeah that's amazing. surprisingly because i think it just her and her standard producer rather than frank ocean or someone.
1. Me having a Trees Community cd
'The Trees Community were an Episcopal Church affiliated Christian community and a music group. They were also known simply as The Trees, and originally as "The Symphony of Souls." They were at first a disparate set of unlikely acquaintances that bonded in a common brokenness and resultant "search for Truth".
Musically, the collective were known for their highly spiritual, ethereal vocals, with musical backing by a wide range of instruments from all over the world, such as sitar, tamboura, Venezuelan harp and bells.'
They're awesome! If you like Joanna Newsom and that you might like them. Bits of it have a weird sinister undercurrent. But that's religion guys amiright
2. Me having this Gamelan cd
which I think was played pretty much all the way through on WFMU one Sunday morning.
I don't have any other psychedelic christian music or Gamelan albums.
I don't usually listen to horror soundtracks but damn those guys are good.
Rosenrot by Rammstein. I fucking love it.
but I actively dislike both Belle & Sebastian AND female country-singing style
and yet I LOVE Lazy Line Painter Jane
I've never been able to figure out why
whereas a lot of B & S is just twee?
But I absolutely love all that late 90s doomy, spacey, super-minimal Chain Reaction label stuff - Porter Ricks, Maurizio etc. "Heroin house" was the hideous genre tag I believe.
