Show me the coolest stuff you've got!

Boris with Merzbow - Rainbow: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2Hm42Q2tAU
Legendary Japanese psych rockers collaborating w/ entirely-too-prolific noise musician to make one of the fuzziest and soothing jams out there. Whole album's a classic.

Les Rallizes Denudes - Night of the Assassins ('77 Live ver): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gyxB-pSYEKc
Speaking of fuzz, this is THE essential lo-fi rock album pretty much of all time. Loud, overblown, and brilliant. Song is a rip off of "I Will Follow Him," and yet it blows The Velvet Underground out of the water.

Billy Bang Sextet - Rainbow Gladiator: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQqm0aMRQew
Way too sick. Great violin-fronted jazz act, with a strong bassline and chill mood. Much less violent than his usual work.

Guernica - Rakujitsu: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rRX46Ynecvc
Everyone knows and loves pop idol Jun Togawa, right? She's always had a few hinges loose, but Guernica is where she really lets herself go. Abrasive, atonal avant-garde cabaret of the highest caliber. Great stuff.

Prefuse 73 ft. El-P & Ghostface Killah - Hide Ya Face: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AADbnoHpu9A
Simple but effective trip-hop on the chill side. Hard not to enjoy.

Your turn!

Hey Nana, thanks for throwing up some music. I'll check out the stuff I don't know when I have some free time this week. (That's basically everything other then Boris!)

Since I've been busy the last few weeks, I decided to see if I can find any interesting stuff on bandcamp. When I'm pretty busy I find this to be an easy way to listen to new music while also lowering the time it takes to find new stuff. The balance there is nice! That led me to seeing Sunn talking about Circuit des Yeux. I found out she was playing near where I live so I went and saw her live. It was in a cafe with maybe 20 people so that was pretty enjoyable!



Other then that I've mostly been listening to these two albums non stop!

Coolest Song Title Ever

Postby adamazing » Mon Jul 06, 2015 12:04 am

Zero Signal by Fear Factory: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3uvNxa ... 3uvNxaRBVM

Not only is this one of the greatest songs ever composed, it features samples from the best movie ever made... The opening has samples taken from Brad Fiedel's Terminator 2: Judgement Day soundtrack. And not just any part of the soundtrack, but from the main theme. The greatest movie theme ever... just sayin'.

Now, I'm going to take it to the next level and blow your minds. This song (the beginning, with the T2 sample) is on the Mortal Kombat movie soundtrack. Not only that, but it is during the Scorpion/Johnny Cage fight... during the Hell/Netherealm portion of the scene. So, let me break this down for you...

The greatest theme song for the greatest movie ever is used in the greatest song ever by the greatest band ever during the fight scene of the greatest MK character ever in the greatest location ever in the greatest video game movie ever. Talk about ridiculous.

ARNOCORPS

Postby adamazing » Mon Jul 06, 2015 12:11 am

And now, I'd like to introduce you ArnoCorps. Hey, let me tell you. This band hails from the Bay Area (originally Austria). Read they're description from their website:

It should come as no surprise that the pioneers of Action-Adventure Hardcore Rock and Roll claim to be “The Greatest Band of All Time”. Since their 2001 arrival in the burgeoning San Francisco Bay Area music scene, ArnoCorps has paved a steady, disciplined and often destructive path to ensure that all those who bear witness to their live Action Adventure Audio Assault agree with their ballsy assertion.

Initially, one might perceive ArnoCorps as merely a group of six highly-trained militant Austrian action-rock heroes. Big mistake. The motivation behind the band is far too complex to be defined by such superficial characteristics. With powerful anthems including Terminator, Commando, Predator and Total Recall, the band has been singularly responsible for restoring integrity to the many Austrian tales that have been exploited by nefarious movie moguls for financial and political gain.

ArnoCorps' explosive live performances don't depend on pyrotechnics or props to create excitement. Although known for hurling audience members record distances and bending steel microphone stands as displays of physical strength, there is no need to fear ArnoCorps; they are a rescue team, not assassins. ArnoCorps performances have evolved to the point where attendees are no longer merely observers, but willing participants in a life-changing event. Many audience members claim to leave with increased muscle mass, a better understanding of life's mysteries and feeling like “goddamn heroes and sheroes.”

In their chronicling of heroic tales of great deeds and fantastic adventures, these visionaries have become symbols of empowerment through their ballsy defiance of cinematic Austroploitation. The loyalty of ArnoCorps fans has become legendary, with their donning of combat fatigues and camo face paint at live audio assaults, a growing number of ArnoCorps tattoos and repeated incidents of fans flying overseas just to experience ArnoCorps live.


Now, this might sound ridiculous, but hear me out. Or rather, hear them out...


ArnoCorps - I'm Ballsy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mlyiKStlEHk

This is their signature song that encompasses everything they are and everything they stand for. If you'd like to hear a song about one of the legit ancient, Austrian folktales; listen now to "Rise of the Machines."

ArnoCorps - Rise of the Machines (this is a fan made video. The band would never actually approve of using "scenes from a Hollywood bastardization created just for monetary" gain in a music video). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMAhmcPBLkY

That album was a pretty cool weird time! Though there is some background noise on that youtube recording that drove me a bit crazy. The background sound makes it seem like there is a phone vibrating in the room.

I notice that kind artefact on a lot youtube recordings, so it's probably something to do with how they process uploaded content.

Yeah, that chinese stars sounds like half a T-1000 dragging itself across a metal floor.

Checking out this Hanayo album, but in the meantime, have some overwrought drama

To Dropsy - yeah, I like this! The first song reminds me somewhat of Religious Girls.



Squarewaves, have you seen this very nice history and analysis of vaporwave?

I appreciate that that video about vaporwave exists and that you linked to it. I had only heard the word, "vaporwave," and a short explanation of it (it was in a podcast and one person was explaining to the other). I don't know how serious the genre is with all of the points brought up in that video, but it is fascinating nonetheless. The whole "giving the listener a certain feeling" is definitely accomplished. Such an interesting concept. It's oddities like this in different media that makes me want to create something. Then I always fall back on the whole, "I don't have time.. blah blah blah..." ...THEN I spend a billion hours making a dumb video or photoshop for someone/something just for fun.

Has anyone heard of Ghostland Observatory? They put on the best shows. It's relative when speaking about vaporwave in creating a mood/place for the listener. It's "just two guys," maybe a guitar/laptop, and lasers. It's really fun.

I am familiar with ghostland observatory, but I can't remember exactly how/why/in what context I've seen or heard them.

Here's something totally different - basically R&B meets exotica, which is a super cool combination as far as I'm concerned!

I'm sure you've all seen this by now, but I've been listening to the K-Mart collection, and it's certainly something!!

This has to be one of the best complete albums I've ever listened to.



Quite enjoying the stuff above as well. Particularly liked the Kmart collection, Ruby and the Romantics, and neat beats. This reply might be a bit late, though.

I'll check this out!

Lately I've been listening to the zero divide soundtrack a lot. It's pretty great!



Also been listening again to one of my favorite doom (almost gothic doom) bands, Unholy.



Also been listening to a lot of Black Matrix!!
