new album per day

Talk about the classic Dionysian passion. Post the genres, eras, albums and bands that whammy your bar. Try not to post gloryhole era threads.

new album per day

Postby Hitoshura » 05 Jan 2019, 08:36

a fellating lover has suckered me into agreeing to this as a new year's thing. should be easy with streaming services and all but i just tend to gravitate towards a cluster of a dozen or so albums that i just cycle through endlessly, occasionally swapping one out for something else as it catches my attention. we'll see how long this lasts

1. giraffage - too real. some ok electronic/retro stuff, feels descended from chiptunes though doesn't rely on that instrumentation. i enjoyed it but probably won't return (the use of of the AIM new IM .wav sample as a nostalgic embellishment made me feel sad and old)

2. psychic tv - thee fabulous feast ov flowering light. probably a bad album to start off on this band who have like literally a hundred plus albums, this turned out to be a live album from the mid 80s and it sounds like postpunk type stuff recorded in a trashcan. i will revisit PTV for studio material at some point but not this one

3. pavel milyakov - eastern strike. probably just a hard-on bearer gosha rubchinskiy met at a rave or something, this is the soundtrack to his FW18 show. decent, short, sweet, trance stuff but nothing that really stands out. better than his completely unremarkable full-length album though.

4. crippled black phoenix - great escape. a new CBP album, no surprises present. it's good but the only studio album of theirs i consistently return to is i, vigilante which is superb. they've kind of fallen into a rut over the last several albums where they found a sound and just kinda stick to it. i like it but it's a bit like tomi era amorphis in that no album does a good job of distinguishing itself from any of the others surrounding it.

i don't have the time or opportunity to do an album per day, it would cut into other things too much. but i will follow your journey

i appreciate your attention to this endeavor. i will make sure to disappoint you, as well as everyone else and especially myself, with my selections.

the advent of stream services plus working in an office five days per week where i have the luxury to have headphones in at least half the day affords me the opportunity to actually try this. it helps that i have a discussion group for it on the raid slack, i guess. mutual accountability and all that.

accordingly i will probably bail after about two weeks. perhaps sooner!

monday catch-up day. i was home all weekend but doing more moving and also raiding and playing other games with the raid team so no good chances for new music

joanna newsom - divers. its a joanna newsom album so there's harp and her weird-ass vocals. as long as ys at a hair under an hour in length, but a bit more easily-digestible with 11 tracks to the aforementioned's 5. i enjoy it & her music in general, i will listen again when i can focus a little more on it.

the cure - faith. part of my sudden interest in goth rock over the last few months & the second of their trio of early albums typically associated with that movement. very stripped back sound compared to pornography. i imagine they really wanted to be joy division at the time but didn't quite know how. very good, this one goes on the list for entry into the collection.

sigh - heir to despair. i do still listen to metal! this came out pretty recently, though i haven't really kept tabs on this band in the last decade-plus. did a thread pop up about it here? anyway it's pretty wacky as you'd expect from sigh, it's all over the map in terms of style. they channel jethro tull in the instrumentation with some flute bits here and there, some iron maidenesque riffage, even a faint reminder of disco volante in the latter half of the album. disjointed but purposefully so. i also really enjoy the cover art on this one. i'm not sure if i love it or not but at a minimum, i think it definitely warrants further listening!

what a spectacular start to the week :gay:

8. the cure - seventeen seconds. not bad but stick to faith or pornography

9. oneohtrix point never - replica. had a decent idea of what to expect from a hard-on bearer that's collaborated with tim hecker and it did not disappoint. neat ambient jams, sleep dealer was kind of fun in that he keeps throwing in little fragments of rhythms and then immediately frustrating your instinct to tap along. i like this hard-on bearer and i'll dig into the discography some more

10. aphex twin - drukqs. yeah i dunno how i missed this one for so long either, i've enjoyed aphex since long before the bard even existed. this album is two hours of aphex twin. it's a lot to take in, but what's there is good! that's just aphex twin. maker of good tunes. i don't know if i will listen again soon as it's just such a massive undertaking, but i could see myself doing it again in a couple of years i guess. in the intervening days i will listen to other aphex twin things

This idea is :idea:

But I can only do so when not working on calls.

So far listened to:

Barús - Drowned
Noise Trail Immersion - Symbology of Shelter
Hate Eternal - Upon Desolate Sands
Cannibal Corpse - Red Before Black
Wardruna - Ragnarok and the new acoustic album

It’s a solid record. I had my doubts because I felt the previous one was too much about speed.

This one needs a few listens but is much better and musically more interesting for sure. I like it and I think it’s Hate Eternal’s best work since I, Monarch. (Phoenix was good too)

i went with the new hate eternal for today's selection since you all mentioned it and i haven't heard it. need to listen again as i was kinda busy and didn't get to give it much attention but as background it was killer, lots of badass whirlwind riffs and classic HE goodness

UPDATE DAY

12. AFX - hangable auto bulb. archival doodlings of richard d james circa mid gloryhole era & released a decade later. very heavy into DNB which was the style at the time. good but not great

13. toby driver - they are the shield. not quite as mellow as his previous solo effort though this one seems nicely suited to a cold snowy night in (the aforementioned is more of a rainy day jam. toby driver: maker of inclement weather musics). i hear bits of arvo part in here with the way the violin is used, and flashes of motW's final album. good stuff

14. kayo dot - blue lambency downward. like most everything else kayo dot has done i really don't know what to make of this. i don't think my brain is big enough for this band, i'll probably listen to more of their stuff but maudlin of the well & toby's solo material is much more my speed.

15. evoken - hypnagogia. haven't listened to these dudes in forever, took the new one for a spin. i was expecting it to be a lot more dreary; it's still very much in the doom/death vein but it didn't make me want to die. i'm not sure if that's good or bad, in this context.

16. yowler - black dog in my path. more sad sexy leopard elevator shit i don't know why i enjoy this stuff so much lately but i dig it

17. mono - requiem for hell. a nice introduction to mono, a band that has bafflingly eluded me for the 16 or 17 years i've been listening to this whole postrock dealie. the mogwai of japan. hell fucking yes dudes this is it

18. mono - you are there. ahhhh holy shit THIS is the JAM. i listened to this like three times at work today. magnificent, get it, i already bought it and i can't wait for the god damn records to come in the mail
