Music appreciation and sharing

Post by Furburt on Sun Oct 10, 2010 11:42 pm

Similar to the "What are you listening to" thread, but with the emphasis on discovering new music from other users.

Basically, the structure is thus. You post two sets of songs: One from a band or genre that you have loved for a long time, and would love others to listen to, and another of something that you've only recently gotten into yourself. You can post as many songs as you want for each, from as many different genres and bands as you want, although if you're posting more than one, spoilers might be a good idea. Youtube embeds seem to work best. There's a button on the reply screen for linking videos.

Also, just so we can keep this from being a list thread, write a paragraph on why you like said music. Doesn't have to be long, a couple of sentences is fine, just so it stays interesting. And do listen to others music, it can be really worth it.

I'll start:

Well, much to my surprise, I seem to have gotten into rap music. Some rap music anyway, namely, these guys, Eric B and Rakim, a New York MC/DJ duo who operated in the late 80's, and I have to say, their stuff has just blown me away. Usually, I find rap turns me off, the self-aggrandizement apparent in a lot of the lyrics, while good for some, just annoys me, but that doesn't seem to happen with these guys. They've got a real funky groove going through all the songs, the lyrics are smart and rhyme well, and the rapping is fast and furious. I discovered them upon learning that one of my favourite bands, Godflesh (An industrial metal band) were influenced by them heavily, and in fact, Godflesh's most famous song, Christbait Rising, uses a modified version of the drumbeat at the end of Microphone Fiend by these guys.



As for the classic, I'm going to go with Cathedral. They're a doom metal band formed by ex-Napalm Death singer Lee Dorrian, and they're brilliant. They've got a really good 70's feel to them, and Lee's singing, while not technically great, is distinctive and charmingly over the top. Very much influenced by Black Sabbath, and they've got their knack for killer riffs.



You don't have to write as much as I did, so don't worry.

Well I'll start off with the classic.

I guess I'll go with a band I've been listening to for quite a few years now (About... 4-ish), Marilyn Manson. Manson was arguable the band which got me into metal, so I have a great deal of love for the band. The nice thing about them is that their musical history is quite diverse (within the boundaries of industrial metal), so you have quite a good chance of finding at least one or two songs you may like by them. For example...
Industrial

to something emo-esque

to fight music

to something haunting

to glam

to a creepy as hell cover


The new band I'm really into is The Ink Spots. Ok, I'm kind of cheating on this one, because I got into them a while ago, but I think they're just so great that I can cheat. So yeah, it's a pretty big difference from Manson, so my musical taste has broadened a bit since 2006. They're a vocal group from the 1930s. Most people know them as the guys who do the Fallout series' main songs. Anyway, I'll just post a few of my favourites.

Well, I'll start with one of my all-time favourite bands, Porcupine Tree. They originally started in the late 80's, like many great bands, as a joke, but gradually grew to be more and more popular on the local scene leading up to the release of their debut album On The Sunday Of Life in 1992. After the release of the highly progressive likes of The Sky Moves Sideways (bookended by its 34-minute title track) and Signify they moved into a more alternative rock direction, with 1999's Stupid Dream being highly praised. In 2001 frontman Steven Wilson was invited to produce Opeth's Blackwater Park, and he soon discovered the prog and extreme metal underground which led to the release of In Absentia, their hugely successful and still most praised album, showcasing a harder direction, and since then they've gone from strength to strength with their new metal-influenced sound, releasing 3 further albums and touring with the likes of Opeth and Dream Theater.


And the new band, Bring Me The Horizon. They're for some reason detested in the metal scene, mainly for looking like scene kids. It frustrates me that so many people listen with their eyes rather than their ears. Anyway after the release of 2006's universally panned Count Your Blessings (deathcore by numbers) they progressed into a more metalcore sound with 2008's Suicide Season and have just released their new album There Is A Hell..., garnering 5/5 in Kerrang and 9/10 in Metal Hammer, and it's obvious to me why-it takes a stunning progressive bent, incorporating electronics, choir, strings and more into a truly brilliant record, and this is from someone who hates metalcore.

APPRECIATING FREESTYLE

Appreciating freestyle is appreciating Grime. By this logic, you should respect KISS FM DJ Logan Sama for his consistently awesome show 23:00 - 00:00. TRY IT It's a great platform to discover new artists, tracks and even better for those guys who get to showcase there free-styling talents!

Watch some classics!



Don't let me show you it all though!

I'm a girl who is a real die hard for the oldies. I rarely like any new music (other than Eurobeat J-Pop) and the ones I do like are often just single songs like Viva La Vida by Cold Play.

I'm head over heels for jazz swingers like Sinatra and Fats Wallace. That special toe-tapping type of beats from the 40s and 50s are possible some of the few genres of music which can really get me to physically move myself while listening.


Some good ol' beats from Blue Eyes

Well if you haven't guessed it already I like artists like Insane Clown Posse and Twiztid but there's a few more guys on their label Psychopathic Records that are pretty good too if you give them a shot.

For example there's

Boondox:



Blaze Ya Dead Homie:



ABK or in full Anybody Killa

[youtube[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dfYXKcEz_-0[/youtube]

and there's Dark Lotus which is pretty much all of the above in one big group.

Some good stuff here indeed.

I'll write a response to all of you when I get a chance to listen to them all.

Just like most other kids, I was fascinated by mystery and magic when I was young. I re-read the Harry Potter books several times, my older sister read me Lord of the Rings and The Belgariad whenever she came over, I adored Star Wars, and loved everything fantasy or closely resembling to fantasy.

As such, when it came to my music taste, I loved ambiguous music, without any defined meaning to it, without any lyrics I could mimic and understand, without any message, just music. Music that could take me away to another place.

I fell in love with classical music. And my biggest idol was Robert Wells and his Rhapsody in Rock.

Spoiler:

What I consider to be the greatest modernization of classical music ever, Robert Wells and his Rhapsody in Rock opened my eyes to classical music. My very first live concert was watching him play for 7 hours straight with his band.

After a while I lost interest in him and explored other genres, but classical would always have a huge part of my life. Later in my years, I discovered Chopin and his beautiful music.

Spoiler:

My discovery of Chopin was largely thanks to video games, and while Eternal Sonata, the game that introduced me to him, sucked balls, my love for him never went away. I still have his entire library in my iPhone, ready to be listened to whenever I want.

Speaking of Eternal Sonata, another part of classical music I enjoy is the music in video games! Games like Eternal Sonata, Shadow of the Colossus and Chrono Trigger all provided me with beautiful music that I'll always love.

Spoiler:

Then we come to today, where I discovered some of the most magic and beautiful music I've ever heard through my big interest in Asian cinema. Today, Asia truly is the greatest place for refined classical music, and everyone should listen to the tunes of Joe Hisaishi or Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Spoiler:

That's really all I have to say. From my past to my present, classical music in its many forms will always stand the closest to my heart. They take my places I can only dream of, they make a casual stroll into an adventure of discovery and serenity. They perfect the atmosphere of the world around them, no matter how dark and depressing it might get.

Music is the most beautiful art there is, and classical is the best kind of music there is.

Ok, a band I've been into for a while, s'gotta be my favourite band, Between The Buried And Me.

Spoiler:

And then someone I'm just getting into, probably Larry Carlton, who has some of the tastiest phrasing ever.

Firstly, the band I've loved for a long time. I, like a lot of people, hadn't heard of them until their smash hit, Feel good inc. . Since then I've followed them avidly, my favourite album is still Demon days.

I am, of course, talking about the Gorillaz.

Spoiler:















There are two bands that I I am just getting into, they both have a similar style so I'll put them both in the same spoiler. The View are the more upbeat side of things, where as Glasvegas and the more melancholy side, both fantastic. Plus they get bonus points for being Scottish!

Now, I love Hip Hop, but I was getting a little tired of all the typical "bitch ass hoes, step to da flow" crap that you see a lot of, so in my quest for good Hip Hop music, I turned to 'alternative' forms of it. Things like trip hop, instrumental hip hop etc.

And so, I came across DJ Shadow's Entroducing... which truly revolutionized instrumental Hip Hop.

The album is made entirely from samples (which got it into the Guinness book of records for being the first album to do so) from old horror movies and vinyls from Shadows collection, to create a small collection of ambient Hip Hop brilliance.

I keep trying to write a response, but I really can't come up with anything more significant than "Oh yeah, that's good", so I figure it'd be pointless.

Still, listened to all your stuff, and it's all pretty damn good.

Oh, & if you're into rap now, what do you think of Dizzee Rascal?

This song has become my before-bed glass of warm milk.

I don't really listen to any obscure stuff, there'd be no point posting up most of it. You'd all already know the tune off the top of your head.

Having said that, there's this one song that it feels like everyone I know in the flesh knows & loves, but no-one on the internet has heard of.

Fats Waller is brillaint, because he's lovable, got a good voice, can play the organ like a monster and, if you understand what he's doing on the piano, INSANELY gifted at Stride Piano Technique.

Also, he's really funny. Plus, he played for Al Capone. Read the story below

"His playing once put him at risk of injury. Waller was kidnapped in Chicago leaving a performance in 1926. Four men bundled him into a car and took him to the Hawthorne Inn, owned by gangster Al Capone. Fats was ordered inside the building, and found a party in full swing. Gun to his back, he was pushed towards a piano, and told to play. A terrified Waller realized he was the "surprise guest" at Al Capone's birthday party, and took comfort that the gangsters didn't intend to kill him. According to rumor, Waller played for three days. When he left the Hawthorne Inn, he was very drunk, extremely tired, and had earned thousands of dollars in cash from Capone and other party-goers as tips"

He died of Pnuemonia whilst touring somewhere near...Missouri...I think. When Louis Armstrong heard of Fats' death, he cried for hours. I think you all know who Louis is, right?




"This Joint is Jumpin'" is probably the first 'music video'e ever (the ones with a story whilst the music plays)

Recently I've gotten back into the Dandy Warhols. I listened to them as a kid (I mean, like, 6-7 years old) because it was music. That's the only reason. It was some pleasant noise in the background of my childhood brain.

Now I really appreciate the music and the meanings.
