Honestly. It's not even for moral reasons, I think the RIAA can rot in hell.
Yet I still think piracy is stupid. I'd rather own the actual CD/Vinyl/Cassette rather then downloading a file. It seems like nowadays everything is digital, nobody cares about physical attachments anymore.. I love opening my mailbox and finding a package of music. It's so much better.
I like when the disks come with posters, lots of the band's pictures, things like that. If they don't, I just buy the digital files.
Fuck DRM, though.
I've never understood why people would waste money on things that they'll only really scrutinize once or twice. With books, I at least get that there's a lot of depth to them, and that takes time to understand, and you can mark up the books, too. But with media, it seems far more convenient and economic, and it is also a lot less egotistical because digital media prevents you from allowing your possessions to shape how you or others perceive yourself.
shiver me timbers! without piracy, how are we supposed to spite the artists that we hate? after Metallica sold out in the 90s i downloaded all there new stuff and posted it the files on as many file sharing sites as i could, NOT because i liked it, but just to spite them for sucking so bad. mind you i only did this with there later albums. the stuff they made in the 80s is still awesome and i would never pirate them. having "Master of Puppets" on CD is cool.
Germany is famous for their diverse output of electronic music. EBM was a huge part of the nineties that was derived from such left-field schools of thought such as post-industrial music and futurepop. Let us take the time to appreciate and discuss some of their music.
Number nine... number nine... number nine... number nine... number nine...
Woah, George Harrison's Electronic Sound got a higher score than 10/14 of the Beatles catalogue. Not that I've ever heard Electronic Sound.
meh. Scaruffi's horrible. Abbey Road, The White Album, Revolver... how can you not like these? Sure, they weren't horribly original, and the early stuff is shite, but their melodies are just perfect!
The Beatles were a mind control experiment! That's what I read on the Internet, anyway.
I cannot just sit back and let you hooligans diss my John, Paul, George, and Ringo!
Justice must be served!
The Beatles were incredibly original and basically invented rock music.
No, not rock 'n' roll, rock.
Pop music with a strong backbeat.
They revolutionized music everywhere with psychedelia, introduced Indian music to the west, and created transitioning songs for the first time in mainstream/pop/not-classical music. They also released the first album to show lyrics of songs.
And whether you like it or not, men having long hair was not socially acceptable in the Western world during the 20th century before the Beatles. Then came hippies...
Anyway, how can you not like them? They just simply made good music.
>Anyway, how can you not like them? They just simply made good music.
They were and are still popular. It's good enough of a reason for a bunch of stuck-up hypocrites to passionately hate them.
I have a title for which the Beatles should be legendary, regardless of anything else concerning their other songs, songwriting, and live performances:
I am the Walrus
People able to pull this off deserve to be at the pantheon of humanity.
lol Paul is dead.
Anyways, anyone who says they hate the Beatles are liars. They may hate what they stand for, but chances are they like the songs.
>>15 Have you seen the shite he thinks is better than the Beatles? Captain flipping Beefheart and The Red Crayola.
Freedom of partiality aside, if you agree with this deduction then you are a tit.
This guy is totally full of shit. I want to reach through the Internet and slap his spaghetti-stuffed mouth silly.
It's been a long time since I've read such bad music "criticism".
Why does everyone here have such a horrible taste in music?
Because they don't have your taste in music!
I want /mu/ to leave
I want /mu/ to stay
I want more people to post on this board...
I won't judge you! honest! please, I need someone to speak to!
Honestly sometimes it feels like this entire website is like 3 people pointless rambling to themselves.
Or perhaps it's only one person...
...and that person is you!!
We represent ‘A wonder world’ by our music.
Ambient, Dream pop, Electronic
so much cool stuff ITT
>>7,11 did you change your names?
>>9 It's the middle of the night, but I proper burst out laughing as I was skimming through the mp3s and got to "The Rest Of The Fucking Album" - 22:38 hahaha amazing
I'm sure this thread will get lot's of attention! If I can get just one person to respond, I'm sure all this hard work will have paid off!
Prog Rock, Alt-Country
Sun City Girls
Doom Metal, one man project, very eerie
Andrew Jackson Jihad
>>1 I liked the Angelica and Witchita Lineman songs. Thank you for sharing.
I do not know of any musicians from my province however. I've never really looked into it.
I'm pretty new to the whole genre actually, I hardly know any of the names of the songs I like. I've just been listening to some Mozart and Beethoven cds I've had laying around (not sure how they even got here lol), and I realized this is one of the genres I just haven't explored at all that has so much substance to it. Can't believe I've just given it a pass for so long.
I'd like to get more into it, so I'm looking for some suggestions.
So, what are some of your favorite classical compositions, /music/?
While they're probably the most mainstream you'll find, my favourites include Pachelbel's Canon in D, Vivaldi's Four Seasons and most of J.S. Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier. I also like Nessun Dorma, whose composer's name escapes me at present.
I must confess, alas, that I haven't listened to anything particularly exotic. Most of my experience with classical music comes from my parents' TimeLife 50-CD set they'd bought in the mid-90s.
>>2 has some very good suggestions, but at some point, once you get used to those artists, I would really suggest looking at some modern classical, as well as some early classical because each period is very distinctive.
classical (1730–1820) is usually lighter than baroque and more partial to melody, and baroque compositions are often very sophisticated and longer-lasting. Medieval classical uses harmonies in a very different sense than classical.
Some personal fav's
Josquin des Prez, Mattaeus Pipelare, Dufay, Hildegard, Alfonso, Machaut,Perotin, Vitry, Dunstaple, Ockegham
Cage, Ives, Schnittke, ligeti, Reich, Schoenberg, Bartok, Stravinsky, Webern, Britten, Hindemith
What exactly distinguishes 20th century classical from modern classical? I stick to the latter when describing music that falls into this category, the catagory being music made since the last half of the 20th century.
Also, how does everyone feel about classically inspired music that isn't contemporary classical (à la neoclassical)?
Do you like noise music? I think the Japanese noise scene of the 80s and 90s is very interesting. Hijokaidan may be my favorite noise band but there's such variety in even the most famous groups and performers that it's hard to say for sure.
anyone want any kazumoto endo?
I've already got Never Gonna Make You Cry, Switches and Knobs, and While You Were Out, but if you've got anything else I'd download it gladly!
Dude, lately i'm listening some japanoise bands. The Gerogerigegege is really blowingminderrrr.r arghhhhh..-.-
that's a good point. Noise music isn't really appealing in the same sense as pop, so it makes more sense to create noise music that has artistic merit.
also, I just listened to some of their discog, and the Xinlusupreme album last year was in a pretty different style than his other stuff; It's a lot more noisier then their other stuff
Hey do you like this noise song I made for a compilation?
feels a little bit like j-pop but with noise with very uninteresting timbres or rhythm and also none of the entertaining qualities of j-pop
I pirate because I don't work.
Who cares. If you like the music but don't have spare money, pirate it. There's no need to explain yourself.
Also, I'm not good at Japanese so I'm kind of out.
Is anyone here knowledgeable about the whole denpa-kei movement? I just know that it was kind of a big thing in the '90's.
Where did the term come from? Was it different before? What's the whole theme/background behind that word "denpa"? What does it imply? I'm very interested.
I read that KING-SHOW was considered old denpa because of the themes they touched in their songs.
Also that denpa VNs/literature is all about crazy/out of your mind stuff. When does a song give you denpa vibes?
AFAIK, I've always thought the original word to mean radio, or radiowaves. Keitai Den*w*a means cell phone. But I I don't know how the word Denpa made the jump from being a radio to being a music genre of hyperactive electronic music with anime loli voices.
>the original word to mean radio, or radiowaves
Literally, yes. But I think the usage here comes from dokudenpa.
>doku-denpa // Literally, "poisonous electromagnetic waves."
>The term originated by a lunatic who caused the notorious Fukagawa Toori-ma Jiken (Fukagawa Street Murders) in 1981. The assailant, Kawamata Gunji, was high on illegal substances and started slashing innocent bystanders in broad daylight. Two housewives and two toddlers were killed, with many more seriously injured. Pleading insanity in court, he described that denpas (electromagnetic waves) told him to start killing people. Motion was rejected and he currently serves life without parole.
>By early 1990s, the term "electromagnetic waves" began to appear here and there among sub-cultural literature and music. Several sub-cultural elites began to coin the term "denpa-kei" to decribe people who acted strangely as if being subject to hypnosis and/or being controlled by electromagnetic waves (much like radio waves are used for remote-controlled toys).
Most truotaku are crazy fucks, that's why the moe styled denpa got so popular, especially in Akiba where idols, who are otaku themselves, are the shit.
Also, DENPA was mentioned here years ago!
I can testify. I live in an undeveloped country and buying international stuff from here is even worse. The shipping is expensive and some shit gets delayed, or even stolen, in the national post service.
I bought some CDs from last M3 through a proxy, and the price was much higher than shippings to USA or Europe for several reasons, and it's been a month and I'm still waiting for the stuff while everyone else already has them. I don't think I'll be doing this again.
oh my god
this is awesome
the end of the digital hardcore movement was a formula that comprised of bad electro, punk+male & female annoying screams + attitude
but digital hardcore was more diverse beside dhr
when i remember back 10-15 years stuff like crisis theory, low entropy or somatics where related to an industrial breakcore sound ,others too
listening to some atari teenage riot. fuck all! reminds me of goreshit. the whole record is p solid
