This album was dope.

Needs a more detailed review though. Not my soup dish though, so who feels lucky to dabble these hot waters and noodle up a review of these coffeehouse jams? (excluding that last track lol, that's more something for like satanic starbucks or something, obviously with goats.)

What events will you attend?


Pretty lame line up, if I went I'd want to see the crows though, unless that's an actual band


Actually, if this were real I wouldn't consider it too lame; it would be an avant garde masterpiece. I would probably be weeping postironic tears of joy in anticipation of the posthuman event horizon by the end TBH


I would want to see Harambe, but he’s so mainstream.

I would like to see CNN and Ivanka Trump on the same stage

Always been a fan of the Morning Piss

Can't play anything :(

I'm looking for stuff from around 2012 that isn't on Bandcamp or SoundCloud. If somehow someone has it, could they upload it to mediafire? Thanks a million.


I know that feel

I will send someone $5 if they can provide me with mp3s of the following:

Pink Nightmare - Down With Pigs
Pink Nightmare - James' Thievin' Theme Song

$10 for the pair

What's the worst pop song/trend you can think of? Firefly comes to mind for me.

I hate faux, "8bit chiptune", music. These types of songs try to take advantage of people's nostalgia for old video game music. The people who makes this stuff think that they don't need to put in any effort if it's just beeps and boops. What they're either forgetting or ignoring is that that composers put in extra effort to make the most out of narrow technical limitations. This stuff not only doesn't even stay within the boundaries of those technical limitations, but they don't so much as make an effort to be listenable.

I think this is an extremely important point. I remember reading articles about composers for the original nintendo and how they would have to push the chip to the absolute limit, and find all sorts of hack to get the sounds that they needed. I also used to own a nanoloop and working within the limitations of that could be quite challenging.

I listened to the second link in your post (pasted below for reference) and while some of the harmonies and melodies seemed to be pretty representative of 8 bit video game styles, the first thing I heard was a modulating acid bassline that would never have been possible on an 8 bit chip.



Thanks for the response. Yu-No came out in 1996 and the pc98 itself came out in 1982, before even the Famicom, and used the Yamaha YM2608 chip. I know very little about sound engineering, but here's the Wikipedia page for it.
I'm pretty sure that the system is considered 16/32 bit. Anyway, it still shows the massive difference in effort between what people produced back then and modern, "retro", music, which also often doesn't fit 8-bit parameters. The third link, which was for the pc-88, is probably closer to mark when it comes to comparable technical limitations.


Bubblegum-pop is the worst thing that has ever happened to music.

Why dont you own an arranger keyboard?
You could literally be writing a song an hour in any style you want.

Dont tell me that its because "muh originality and artistic integrity." Every genre is made out of idioms and all this does is play those idioms in along with your melodies and harmonies.

Arranger keyboards are the best
Arranger keyboards are good for writing rock music
I use an arranger keyboard for writing songs about Batman


Holy shit, I have never seen any live footage of wesley


Is that a real lyric?


no, but if it sounds like one its because i have listened to a shitload of wesley willis in my life so far

Obscure classical(Post Renaissance- Nineteenth century) composer thread.
My favorite part starts at 19:59


The first seven minutes are a bit banal. Here's the best parts.

What music gear would you buy if your budget was unlimited?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.


damn son, thats a lot of gear.

I would probably just buy a high end acoustic guitar. Probably a Taylor 914ce or similar.


Oh boi, that'd be dangerous. I would buy too much shit.

>Good Genelec and/or Adams speaker pair

>good fucking desk
>Add a eurorack modular drum case to my existing 7U Eurorack
>Get an Octatrack MK2 instead of my current MK1
>Get a Sequentix - Cyclone sequencer(It's a dream of mine)
>Get a studio grade big ass mixer(haven't researched that stuff at all)
>Big monitor
>Roland Tape Echo(i'd be ok with the Boss RE-20 even)
>Eventide Space
>buy a proper acoustic guitar(sold all my guitars 18 months ago)
>Get some pre-amps and proper soundcard

Tbh I wouldn't want to add too much to my musical setup, just improve on some basic shit like recording and listening.


>Get a Sequentix - Cyclone sequencer(It's a dream of mine)

What the fuck is wrong with me, it's Cirklon not Cyclone.


This guy again. I would probably also buy my own copy of Logic Pro. I used to have one, but then they wanted $200 to upgrade it. I got the new version from a friend, but I want my own copy again.


Oh yeah, legally buying a DAW would be a nice addition lol.

I'd probably buy Ableton and then be finally arsed to learn it.
