What Are You Listening To?

  • sadly the type of music i listen to is all but dead with only chris stapleton hank williams the 3rd and jamey johnson still keeping it alive

  • @Faaip @FF7Cloud I'm not sure if either of you have Spotify, but if you do, I highly recommend the playlist they make for you each week. Since it's based off of your listening habits, you'll hear tunes you're familar with and then it may dive into some uncharted territory for you. I started doing that during the lulls of this year and got into bands like Grandaddy and Quasi that I may have otherwise missed.

  • Ladies Code recently put out their second mini-album following the loss of Rise and EunB. Ever since their music hasn't been quite as high energy but there's been no loss in quality. I really liked all of the tracks, especially the title (The Rain) and the remixes from the first mini (although those are Physical CD tracks only). Really I'm just in love with the voices of Sojung, Zuny, and Ashley.
    Ladies Code - Strang3r

    Another album that really captured me this year was Lee Hi's Seoulite. Her voice is so unique and her music has this infectious groove to it, I can't help but sway along to the songs. Some stand outs to me were: World Tour, Hold My Hand, Official, My Star, Blues, Video, and Missing U. I'd also really recommend checking the music videos for this album (Hold My Hand, Breathe, and My Star).

    Brown Eyed Girls are living legends and their latest album Basic, did not disappoint. I just can't say enough good things. The title tracks were just phenomenal, especially Brave New World. I really liked: Track One (can't type out the Korean name), Warm Hole (way cheesy but I can't not groove to it), Wave, Brave New World (if you like Michael Jackson you'll like this), Obsession, Track 6, Atomic, and Track 9. The music video for Brave new world is just amazing.

    I'm gonna mash together two albums for this one. Both by the Wonder Girls (AKA the Wonderlegends). They recently switched from a primarily dance group to an instrumental band and the results have been WONDERFUL. Reboot was a pitch perfect 80's themed album. I can't even single out my favorite tracks, they're all certified jams. The same goes for their recent mini album Why So Lonely. WG are really just too good.

    Wonder Girls - Why So Lonely

    Sorry to flood the thread with Kpop but it's just too good.

  • @SabotageTheTruth I still don't have spotify.. a bunch of people have recommended it though so I'll definitely try it out soon. Thanks for the playlist tip!

  • 2017 is upon us! Here's a decent list of what to look forward to for this year (found here.)

    For me personally? Grizzly Bear, Gorillaz, LCD Soundsystem, Arcade Fire, and St. Vincent are probably going to rock my world at various points in the year.

  • Been listening to the new Childish Gambino album a lot lately as well as the Westworld soundtrack. Would highly recommend both

  • @Ruaidhri18 Gambino's new album is such a left turn. It is wonderful and expressive in all the right places.

  • 2017.. could this be the year that we get a new Tool album?

  • I know it's not the sort of thing people like on here, but I'm really like the feel good vibe of Ed Sheeran's new track

  • Ohhh shit.. King Crimson is touring the US this year. I doubt they'll play near me though :[

  • Been going through a pretty long bout of insomnia, havent really been able to sleep more than a few hours at a time since the middle of December, so I've been listening to a lot of vaporwave mixes at night. I find them to generally be pretty relaxing and chill. Stuff like this:

  • @TokyoSlim Love me some vaporwave

  • Been listening to this album lately, gloomy but great. Found them on a random Spotify playlist.

    Cemeteries - The Wilderness (2012)

    PS: Does anyone know how to properly embed Youtube links? I forgot how and the methods I tried aren't working.

  • I have been listening to Blue Stahli and Beartooth a lot lately. Both bands can be found on Spotify.

  • @Gloop Just copy and paste the link, that's all you have to do. Just make sure a timestamp isn't included in the link, this place doesn't seem to like them. "&t=1m15s" for example would be at the end, just delete that part and it'll show.

  • Welp, we've got some artists with new singles. Let's dig in.

    Youtube Video

    Every time I heat something up, I think this song will come to mind. Spoon is such a diverse band and seemingly push themselves into unexplored waters with each album (aside from the last release) and if this single is any indication of the quality of the album as a whole, this may turn into one of my favorites for the year.

    THE GORILLAZ ARE BACK! THE GORIL... wait, what is this? Hype deflation my friends. While this track isn't necessarily bad, it's not necessarily... much of anything. It feels like a filler track on an album that gets skipped yet this is their first showing of their album. Such a strange choice, I hope this vibe doesn't carry over to the rest of the record. I Hate Everything (a great content creator) has one of the top comments on the video currently - "Weird thing to lead with, makes me think of those art video installations you see in various exhibitions which you watch through once and never really think about again. Not bad necessarily, just not Gorillaz to me particularly. Relax though everyone, I'm sure when the album finally releases it'll be worth the wait."

    Youtube Video

    Chaz (from Toro y Moi) collaborating with the Mattson 2 creating some chill sounds. The video for this premiered today, yet I can't find it through YouTube and can't be bothered to search properly for it. Still, this sound is more reminiscent of his second album, Underneath the Pine, which happens to be my personal favorite so... I'm hoping this develops into an album if it hasn't already.

  • I've been listening to the album Teens of Denial by the band Car Seat Headrest. It's an Lternative rock album that released last year but sounds like it came out around 2004. It's got a solid mix of soft and loud tracks with the two biggest standouts being drunk drivers/killer whales (soft) and destroyed by hippy powers (loud.)

    I would highly recommend this album to fans of Franz Ferdinand, the shins, the killers, super grass, the white stripes exc. This band doesn't really sound like any of those bands but if you like those you will probably like this.

    Happy listening!

  • @lifetimeofnot one of the greats, same here

    All King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard stuff - particularly Paper Mache Dream Balloon, which for some reason I will forever associate with Dark Souls 3 (Trapdoor is such a dark souls song and that video too)
    Ty Segall - Emotional Mugger and all others (the new self titled album is great)
    Wand - Ganglion Reef
    Foxygen ...and Star Power
    Chance the Rapper
    other stuff but can't think of any more
