So, lots of stuff Ive never really heard of, but you got tons o' plays.
Yea, so not a lot of diverse plays and kinda top heavy. I have had this slight addiction with The Soft Bulletin lately.
+ FLips, AnCo, Massive Attack, DJ Shadow, GY!BE
~ Portishead, The xx, Boards of Canada, The Black Keys, Funkadelic, QotSA
- Miike Snow, Them Crooked Vultures, Phoenix
WHAT: The Flaming Lips With Neon Indian <--holy **** how have i not heard about this **** me **** me **** me
2009 catchup? gonna bump you up .5 for making me aware of a cool collab, but the charts are generic-core with no real range - standard alt/indie drivel and some p4k-approved hard rockers with a slight dip into some of the most entry-level electronic music out there. in short, if you want my advice, try checking out some electronic that isn't harped on daily by the same people who think Kid A is the best album of all-time.
most of the tracks are 20-40 minutes long this week when you get near the bottom, so rate everything. low plays due to Spain trip
+ Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, Hüsker Dü, Magma, Ween, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Amesoeurs, Nick DrakeQuote:
+/- Big Star, Joanna Newsom, Bob Dylan
- Violent Femmes
8/10 (7 if I went negative mode), strong charts with variety and quantity/quality; just not a lot I'm in absolute love with.
++The Mats, Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr
+ Coffin Break, Swans, SSPU, Jesus Lizard, Maybeshewill
-dredg, Blur, Snoop, Cee-Lo, Crush 40
--U2, Black Eye Peas
Bonus points for The Mats being your most listened, pretty solid Alternative Rock choices. Not too much that got me excited though and there were quite a few artists I didn't like.
oneohtrix point never
on the less p4k side of electronic:
stockhausen (start with kontakte and listen to it with no distractions)
xiu xiu has some electronic-y stuff on some records, but aren't REALLY electronic ifyaknowhatimsayin'
general good ****:
fela kuti - roforofo fight (gonna be whoring this out on here a lot)
dadawah - peace and love
a clockwork orange soundtrack (not the best classical collection ever, but a nice enough place to start and see how you like some of the older stuff)
this heat - deceit (<3)
magma - MDK (ZEUHL MOTHER****ER)
can - tago mago
robert wyatt - rock bottom
henry cow - in praise of learning/western culture
dead can dance - within the realm of a dying sun (i'm told their record 'the serpent's egg' is superior, but i haven't looked more into them just yet)
~ Archers of Loaf, Jeff Buckley, Lightning Bolt, Alcest
Some great stuff, even if a large amount of your stuff is stuff I haven't heard. Nothing I dislike. The genres I rarely listen to like post-rock and metal you have artists I recognize and enjoy quite a bit. 8/10, with a .5/10 margin of error for the fact that a good number of artists are unknown to me.
++ Husker Du, My Bloody Valentine
+ A Tribe Called Quest, Flaming Lips, Bob Dylan
~ Butthole Surfers
A lot of stuff I don't listen to/haven't heard.
