I have a strange love for dnb tracks with female vocalists.

Just got back from the Schoolboy Q concert and it was hype as hell! I got drenched in sweat, fell in love with the girl standing in front of me, and by the time Q played his final song I was just making guttural sounds because I lost my voice.

I couldn't even handle the final songs he did. Brand New Guy>> Work Remix >> There He Go>> Blessed. When Break the Bank and Prescription-Oxymoron came on I started wildin out. I swear I thought I was gonna pass out. I started seeing spots and the flashing lights and smoke I was breathing in from the guys next to me definitely didn't help. But overall it was awesome.

Death Cab for Cutie is, like, growing backwards with me. I got into them through Plans when I was 14 or something, when I was 16 I was obsessed with Transatlanticism, then in the past couple years I've been discovering lots of their old stuff. We Have The Facts and We're Voting Yes is my favourite now and I can barely listen to Plans without cringing. Still love Transatlanticism though.

Transatlanticism is the best, and really regret not seeing them at summerfest a few years ago.

on a different note, The Antlers new album leaked and I feel like it is a lot more sad than their last album. takes me back to hospice, which I listen to when I'm real sad. I will never get over that album.

New Damon Albarn solo album has leaked, what does everything think? Don't like it as much as his work with Blur or Gorillaz but it's not bad by any stretch. Nice range of emotion with really upbeat tracks like Mr Tembo and then tracks like Hostiles an Photographs being more drawn out and solemn. Aitor Throup's CGI heads/skulls for the Everyday Robots video were pretty cool imo.

I was actually surprised by how much I didn't like Quack. A-trak can be an incredible producer, but I thought it was the same sort of dance hall stuff that RAM was.

But then again, I didn't like RAM either, so maybe that type of music just isn't for me.

DJ Rashad has died, which completely sucks. 2013 was his best year yet, and he was taking footwork into places way past where one could imagine even a few years ago.

This really guts me. Rashad was my introduction to footwork. It changed what I thought about "dance" music. Double Cup was the genre's real breakout and it sucks so much that lean cut him down in his prime.

...what i've been listening to lately....



Rangda on Drag City. It's sir Richard Bishop (Sun City Girls), Ben Chasny (aka Six Organs of Admittance) and drummer Chris Corsano (dunno if he's been in anything but damn he keep a beat). Dunno how to describe it but if you know the above stuff imagine mixing it with some sort of tribal music and then some mathy noise like extremely or something about you're about there. I'd imagine this would be really good live...



Suddenly really wanted to listen to Raw Nerve again and forgot how cool this track was... pissed off fast punk... makes me furious!!!!

Agreed. Rollin' was the first Footwerk release I ever liked and both that and Double Cup have gotten crazy amounts of time in my DJ sets since. Loved his approach to sampling and how much he was able to push the genre forward with his experimentation. Hearing about his death was such a shock because he was obviously rising so quick and probably had at least another album to go before he hit his peak. My Twitter feed was depressing as fuck that day. It's so sad when young talent is taken by drugs :(

was re-listening to echoes silence patience and grace and i really liked the lyric "Such a simple animal, sterilized with alcohol, I could hardly feel me anymore"


[youtube]oh8LMSJSk0s&feature=kp[/youtube]

i love the first verse of sacrilegious. "Gloomy on sunny days, shadows no house or trees/ Prayers not close to me as I bow down and take a knee/ Hell goes far as the eye can see, hoodies and weaponry" we've all felt sadness when it seems like we should be happy and i think Q captures that perfectly

Three superbly excellent musicians there - I've seen each of them live doing various projects and they're incredible. Corsano especially just commands the room when behind a drum kit. He's played on Six Organs records before as well as with Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunburned Hand of the Man, etc. Saw him open for Jack Rose years ago which was an excellent evening indeed.

The difference between listening to FLAC's compared to stuff on YT or Spotify is absolutely insane. This generation is going to have absolutely no idea what decent audio sounds like. So glad I invested in a decent soundsystem :|

something kind of dumb about me is that I've sort of avoided any thing audiophilic (FLAC, nicer headphones, etc.) because I know if I get immersed in that, it'll ruin me. won't be able to download music off youtube without hating it, won't be able to record anything without thinking "damn, that'd sound way better with a _________",won't be able to listen to music at a kickback w/o getting a lil conscious that the bitrate or whatever is super low (unless low is a good thing and then in that case, "... lil conscious that the bitrate or whatever is super high")

willful ignorance is what I'm sayin. not too admirable but seems only practical.

There is something about music that has a slight vintage country twang like Field Report's S/T and Brian Eno's Apollo. Love it.

i rant about this too much but i do think FLAC and audiophile stuff is mostly BS, i refuse to believe that V0 isn't good enough for like 99% of situations. especially if you're listening to digitally recorded music.

I definitely can, but only when played through a semi-decent soundsystem.

Can you tell the difference between a proper CD and a low bitrate MP3?

true audiophiles listen to vinyl

while FLAC and vinyl are similarly lossless, vinyl is way cooler. the warmth and pops are lovely.

FLAC is good as an archiving file. Any differences in sound will only be audible on a well equipped sound system and even then they will be minor. I mainly use the file type for the archiving and so I feel like I'm getting the most out of my hi-fi.
