But really, you've got to get down. Punks jump up to get beat down, after all.
So... in conclusion http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIupvCZJaoo
non hip-hop album?
and then Superunknown if you want rock.
Changes every month or so. I love both tho.
and to a song by The Coup.
'The shipment is delivered come and get it if you bout it'
I like some DMC singles but I think they are kinda overrated overall, sounds pretty juvenile now
Big yourself up, shot of confidence, mentally prepare for a major life event. Psychological boost if you like.
But I guess if I had to pick just one it would be...
Shook Ones Pt. II
Would love to hear it.
Oasis or Blur?
Not familiar with either really outside of a few of the singles.
'Think Tank' especially.
gotta be the correct answer right?
was thinking 'da funk', or fleetwood mac's 'world turning' myself.
Your answer will suffice though.
album/mixtape/compilation(just any piece of music really) more people must be made more aware of?
where's the drop?
although Temptations psych phase was awesome.
If you had to do a James-Murphy-Losing-My-Edge-esque list of all the esoteric artists you listen to, who would be in your list?
Would probably just be a list of underground/forgotten/underrated rap artists.
have you been enjoying lately?
new or old it doesn't matter
outside of the usual slathering of rap/r&b.
Ive been into:
Peter Gabriels first four solo albums
Otis Redding - Love Man (I love love love his voice and when he does his looooo-ooo-ooo-ooo-ooove
and neeeeee-eee-eee-eee-eee-eeed with it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8Ga3Ub4UTM)
Bark Psychosis - Hex
Carly Rae Jepsen - the whole album is awesome fuiud
Morphine - I think they're my favorite 90s band
Naughty By Nature - first four albums are classic, very underrated group, could balance a ton of styles, Treach is a great emcee
The Sea and Cake - all their 90s stuff satisfies my indie itch. good musicians
Don Ellis - crazy time signatures off the wall big band jazz stuff
Can - the Lost Tapes just started diving into these on my commutes to work
Devin Townsend - Spent about 3 hours watching live videos on youtube the other night, dude is ridiculously entertaining
Mala In Cuba - Just to make Jimi happy
Lots of Isley Brothers, Prince, Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Roisin Murphy, Janet Jackson
Then Ive been kinda diving into some acoustic-post-fahey-folk type of stuff which can all be found in this playlist I made: http://open.spotify.com/user/theshipment/playlist/2WNjL5jGiUHaSu5CFkN9Xg really liking john renbourn atm
And then connecting with my emo-punk-pop roots with this playlist:
really liking that Funeral For a Friend record
And metal from last year
I've also been slowly chipping away at my 2012 hip-hop playlists so I can share those here soon within the next few weeks. So much good stuff.
Any recommendation on a particular Don Ellis album?
but the studio album to get is Turkish Bath, its totally mad. And Tears of Joy is great too, just a little more conventional (for his standards).
Thanks, I'll have a listen
It aint as good as his singles tho or his first album that he didn't want to call an album Return II Space. Mala's a boss whatever way you look at it mind.
especially the post Fahey stuff
(also really looking forward to your 2012 mix)
some good stuff up there. I've never actually heard any Morphine. would probably dig them though. probably will check out some Naughty by Nature stuff too (not a fan of their name though)
the Can Tapes are pretty great. I'm sure they must still have other stuff lying around they can release
I think they would be one of your favorites ever within just a few minutes of listening!
best Morphine album?
I'm leaning towards 'Good'...
are you such a sad cunt?
or Doggystyle. But ATLiens was when I really went in.
tattooed on your face, what would it be?
'Big fish in a small pond'
Off of bow down. Idk that's off the top
and fire it Ponyoakwards, plz
Also, why the fuck do you post to open-minded hip-hop stronghold DiS, not that I'm complaining <3
Like one of those relationships you always fall back on cos it's comfortable or whatever. I like a lot of peeps on here tbf. Good bunch o lads.
kind of a shit question, will think of a better one...now!
you linked me to some don ellis recently. what other insane kinda old-school heavy shit from the jazz/psych/whatever environs you got in the locker?
i started this thread a while back cos I wanted more 70s psych/rock
what a travesty
they are big on lengthy repetitive psyche jams
I guess it is rock but I don't lump it in with all of the bands mentioned in that thread in my head. It's like minimal drone almost with the violins and stuff going all the time
probably some indian music as well given the titles
I guess when they became International Harvester, Harvester and Trad, Gras och Stenar, they became more 'normal' rock, though still with some lengthy repetitive songs and some droney stuff
anyway it's great whatever you call it
tho one of them died recentlyish
I'll give these guys a dive for sure.
Why do you regularly post on the DiS board?
Social or Music and why?
What are your top three go-to sources for new stuff?
Which three users do you hold the musical opinions of in the highest regard?
What's your longest consecutive run of thumb war victories?
1. Cos I like music and dont have too many people to talk music with extensively irl. And it can be fun.
2. Music about 96% of the time. Dont care to talk about soccer.
3. I have a really big google reader list of blogs I check. At the moment its Thizzler on the Roof, Fader, Spin and livemixtapes that I check the most
4. Tough to narrow it, different users for different things but really I like anyone who explains why they like what they like, even if they're taste doesn't align with mine.
5. Havent ever lost to my wife cos she cheats every time, so thats like probably 25 in a row.
Enta Da Stage, Dah Shinin', Nocturnal, or Da Storm?
All of those are great though.
But < https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3ixy6cKOgE > anyway.
I like Dah Shinin next and then Enta after. Its a pretty close race really but I just have a thing for Rucks voice. Nocturnal is front to back heat.
Because if not then you & your whole thread is bullshit & I've wasted my time.
I think the last one I went to was Jimmy Eat World and the next one I plan on going to is Dino Jr in a few weeks.
how on earth did you manage not to go to a single gig!
and kids and job and other interests taking precedence
wasn't sure if you were a young whippersnapper any more or not
What is 'it'?
to there is the bassline on that song. Its bigger than anything and everything tbf.
its Rihanna Diamonds.
But all time its probably Soft Cell 'Tainted Love'
But.. no offence.. but.... why??
I particularly hate:
the main synth stab
the boring bass sound
the melody on the hook
all of it!
To be fair, nearly all the "classic" canon of early 80s electro-pop is Marmite love/hate stuff.
Which of them has the best musical side project?
Most of the NBA guys just say they like Wayne and Jay and Ye and call it a day. Fair enough but snooooore.
This is the best thing ever though: DJ Quik beat and cameo with 4 of the more shy NBA players doing raps over it about some new Nikes.
his fashion though, uh, just no, dude, no.
(This argument has nearly led to blows between my mate and I lol, I will bow to your superior wisdom)
Donald Byrd and Roy Ayers <3
tbh I'm not a big fan of the series. I think between the four you could really make a quality 45-60 minute mix of the best stuff and that would suffice. The idea was there but sometimes it just doesnt work. I think the format showcases Guru's flaws too often.
essential reading. Anyway, what i'd like to know is, as an American, have you ever danced to country and western (maybe a dosey doe) and enjoyed it, and if so, which track's your favourite? (I like all my exes live in texas from the movie motion picture, Roadhouse)
could someone link to it? cheers
That is my all-time favourite DiS thread. So many tracks I'd never heard which I now listen to almost daily.
should be ready to unleash by mid year.
its usually the worst thing in the world but once in a while it hits the spot.
Big and Rich 'SAve a horse ride a cowboy' is too ridiculous to hate. Also 'She Thinks My Tractors Sexy'.
Truth be told though, Garth Brooks 'Fences' was one of the first tapes I ever bought, went halves with my older sister. Cant even begin to front on 'Friends in Low Places'.
Line dancing is really fun fwiw.
In basketball I'm more of a finesse player and jump shooter.
But I do bring the muthafuckin' ruckus with some impressive trash talk no doubt.
if steve nash told people their wives taste of cheerios
And LEAST favourite Steely Dan albums?
Least: tie between the last two
in terms of opening up new rabbit-holes that you hadn't previously explored/or putting you on the road to where you are now as a music listener/appreciator
there's been a few through the years I suppose.
Green Day 'Longview'
Bob Marley 'No Woman No Cry'
Wu Tang 'Cream'
HELLO! Will have to get back in the plug.dj thing soon eh!
I just got Steve Arringtons 'Dancin in the Key Of Life' I bet youd like that.
/who're your favourite artists from the world cup winning countries?
Do you actually think I'm gonna click on some link you give me? Just answer me, lady to lady.
In the amount of time it took you to write another response you could have already had the answer.
So now what I'll do is link you to the interview so you can be one click closer to your answer:
AND I'll even c/p my first post in that thread!
---And then on the other side, the poetry side, I look at people like Billy Corgan and that white energy is powerful too, I feel a lot from the white energy on a certain level – but that is a white energy and it’s different---
from people who have been rapping for at least 5 years professionally, who do you think has been the most consistently boring?
or Common (even though he has classic material)
Should I play at our next club night?
but probably Get Wise 91 by Mr Lif which features Edan. Bass line has enough groove to it.
El-P - Meanstreak
saves you having to DJ for 40 odd minutes
Cos it sounds good like.
Ahem. What records do you listen to with your kids?
If I am gonna put on a full record then its like Thriller or Off The Wall.
Thanks for the 2011 Hip Hop playlists by the way - tons of shit I'd not heard, but all good.
But havent heard them all yet. Future Days, Tago Mago and the lost tapes are the others i have.
All about the drummer for me.
The guitar is in close second. Future Days for me. Cheers.
Not a fan.
She Neva Seen
Not My Job
Off Tha Rictor
Somethin like that I think.
mafioso rap >
I have only heard a few ES songs!
Give me a few to check and I'll listen straight away.
Favorite: DJ Quik, Snoop, E-40, Minutemen, Spice-1, Beach Boys, Tower Of Power, Janes Addiction, Ice Cube, QOTSA, 2pac. Too $hort, Mac Dre,
Least: Slightly Stoopid, Hoobastank, Korn (I like that one song though)
Never heard of Slightly Stoopid. I guess they are California's Son of Dork, who in turn are punk-pop's Goatse.
and made them worse.
Still have some of their catalog to get through but Ive heard the big ones.
What is the best image to think about to get rid of the image of an overweight, stubbly transvestite dressed as Audrey Horne from Twin Peaks?
MY BANK ROLL SWOLL AND I JUST CANT FOLD IT
but then it got good.
Mainly cos the format is stale af. I really like The Voice, though. The format is new, the judges mesh well and for the first half of the season is all about the voices and nothing else.
it wasn't a message to you, i was just jaggin'
it's really fun! Good work.
but who wants to atone and is interested in expanding his horizons, what are the five records I should listen to so I can banish those prejudices for good? The only hip-hop album I currently own is It Takes a Nation of Millions, which I don't listen to very often to be honest. But I like 99 Problems and Yonkers.
I've only got five albums to hook you. This is hard.
* Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
* Outkast - Aquemini
* Snoop - Diggystyle
* UGK – Ridin’ Dirty
* Notorious BIG - Ready To Die
carving out a place in rap history.
Aquemini for the experimentation in production, the memorable hooks and having the best song ever recorded, SpottieOttieDopaliscious
Snoop cos its hella fun. One of the best voices and personalities in rap.
UGK cos you need a deep south funk filled slapper of a record. Outkast are from the south but they didnt play to their roots much the further along in their careers they went.
Notorious cos he is the best.
Have wanted to give 36 Chambers a blast for a while. Not sure about Snoop, not sure I get off so much on 'funky' stuff but should give it a chance. Been meaning to give Illmatic a spin too after seeing threads calling it the best hip hop album ever. Plenty to get stuck into!
Should also note that these aren't my favorite 5 rap albums, not even necessarily my favorite by these artists.
