any genre, new or old
the more obscure the better (let's get elitist!) (as long as its good)
I've been listening to Frieder Butzmann's Das Mädchen Auf Der Schaukel a lot recently. it's great.
also la ronde by michel chion & erosphere by francois bayle.
in return, can someone reccomend me some good diva-y theatre music like Dagmar Krause singing Brecht or something...
& red bird by trevor wishart
it sounds pretty cool
those suggestions sound good, especially the first one
i have not. ive been bad at new music recently. i will check it out
all the frieder butzmann stuff is great/terrible-in-a-great way. i especially like that album and it's got a beautiful cover too (apart from the shit typeset)
'Highly recommended if you're into this kind of sound. I am not.' --- rateyourmusic user review of Das Mädchen Auf Der Schaukel
now I have to hear it
I'm a big ECM fan and don't mind a bit of Villalobos but I found it a bit dull. It's neither one thing nor the other - not enough of the chilly ECM atmospherics and not dancefloor at all.
It's not terrible or anything but it kind of drifts past without you really noticing it.
or Peurto Meurto.
there's some weird arbitary line that the dresden dolls just cross for me. i'll check out Puerto Muerto tho ta
but they meet your 'diva-y theatre music' requirements. Or what about Tom Waits (if a grizzled older man can be 'diva-y')
yerr. his s/t to woyzeck is literally theatre music, if mayne not diva-y. however maybe i should realise i'm just trying to recapture my misspent adolescence and give up on the idea.
Everyone else has probably known how brilliant it is for ages but somehow I missed the memo until recently.
It's really, really great.
I've always overlooked them, for some reason
Bought Stankonia and was blown away by it. Aquemini is even better. If you like hip hop, classic funk and soul at all you'll love it.
Get in the live-blog thread right this second with either Aquemini or ATLiens, DO IT PRUNES.
long form synthy drone stuff, think Oneohtrix with Emeralds tones, some ghostly female vocals, and kind of a skeletal techno feel to it
this! + Luminaries & Synastry (on cheap cd too)
on a *slightly* similar tip, also new Felicia Atkinson on Home Normal + old Felicia Atkinson/je suis le petit chevalier on somewhere else
really good electronica with pop sensibilities and cool hooks, a bit overlooked but I dig the shit out of it.
playlist. It's really good.
Recommend the Houses album as well if you like this, it's on the same playlist.
The Argument by Fugazi, because if you haven't heard it, you're probably expecting something totally different.
Good? Oh yeah...
Nice pick, AlphaD
or just a general rec thread?
Rik Froberg from Hot Snakes doing laid-back surf rock. Awesome guitars.
and would like them to be more psychedelic and have more free jazzy freakout bits then why not try 'Out Of Body Diva' by 'Who's Your Favorite Son, God?'
it gets more melodic as it goes on. And here's the one song that sounds vaguely normal on it
Good video feat. what looks like a foil knob.
new Moritz Von Oswald album Horizontal Structure a lot, and I really like it. Also, I have listened to the ECM remix album, and it's good.
Oh yeah, the new Fennesz EP Seven Stars is brilliant.
(can't be bothered to reply to everyone)
TVPs other albums (ie not their debut) are so underrated
Painted Word is another good one too
Thrilling, high-octane garage rock. Check this out:
This didn't get nearly as much attention as I the likes of Blondes and Laurel Halo have got. It's subtle but at times that makes for something quite devastating. Suitable for fans of Explosions in the Sky and droney electronica. http://open.spotify.com/album/6UaJey9PiyJBJb6Kr7Uc44
really can't say enough good things about this record. its just fucking sublime, on every level. i suppose Neutral Milk Hotel are in the same neighborhood sound-wise, but lyrically, i don't know another writer in popular music that can hold a candle to Glenn Richards.
My standard answer. So much so that I may well have already suggested it to you.
