Small Philadelphia (I think) power pop band's debut, very comfy, worth a listen

This is dropping tomorrow, already heard every track multiple times. Fun and cool if you're into bass music, otherwise, not. I love it.


It's been a shite year for music. My AOTY would have probably been Melody's Echo Chamber's album that was supposed to come out before she had an aneurysm

As for Metal AOTY, So far, it's this for me.

Thoughts on the new Taylor Swift?



Listening to this song is like having sex with the op image


A terrible experience

Can you guys think of any artists that are respected both in classical and pop circles?


Frank Zappa comes to mind


Basically only these two guys, but honestly neither one of them are truly accepted in the classical world. It would be extremely rare that you would see Zappa on the same program as Beethoven.


Yeah, even though I posted a pic of Greenwood, I know he isn't respected. I don't think Zappa quite makes the cut either. Maybe there's someone though. I'm considering performers too, not just composers


It's useless to imagine "pop music" before it made sense as a concept, but I'm tempted to say Liszt is the closest to fitting this bill, Lisztomania and all


Lang Lang played with Metallica at the Grammys

Stop what you are doing and go learn some Hawaiian Slack Key guitar. It is easy to get started with, sounds good, and fun to play. On top of that, it has a cool history and is genuinely a "music of the people" meaning that it has not been tainted by commercial interest.


Ledward and Fran jamming:



Fran Guidry - Manuela Boy


I am working on this tune now. Its pretty fun. Fran plays it in a more bluesy way, adding swing and a lot of improv. I play it with swing, but my improv skills are nowhere near his.


These are very nice. Don't see myself actively interested in it, but I wouldn't complain if this sorta stuff played for days on end.


I didnt care for it much at first, but like many things, once I began playing it, I found it a lot more enjoyable. Still not my main thing, but it has given me a lot of inspiration for my other projects.

What is the balance of hardware/software like in your music?

Do you prefer one method over the other?

How well do the two worlds integrate for you?


100% software at present


i like the flexibility of software, I dont see any real benefit to having hardware other than having tangible objects to interact with, which can be inspiring


when i did have more hardware i always found that it did not mix well with softsynths. this is probably attributable to my lack of mixing skills at the time


>What is the balance of hardware/software like in your music?
100% software and likely to stay this way, unless instruments count as hardware.

>Do you prefer one method over the other?

Yes, I strongly prefer software. I'm lost without Ableton.

>How well do the two worlds integrate for you?

I haven't even touched the hardware side, haha


I totally prefer hardware. My favorite way of recording is just with my mic instruments and audacity. But maybe hardware/software is a moot point when you simply prefer using physical instruments (I mean, is that really /hardware/?)

It really depends on what you're working on though. I also like making mashups, mixes and remixes with dj software, and that's 100 percent on my computer


I prefer having more hardware. I like to collect keyboards and speakers. Currently i have 7 sets of speakers, and 3 keyboards in my room. The reason i dont have a lot of software is because im terrible at mixing, so I like to spend more time playing than recording.

I dont really integrate the two worlds that much, only one of my keyboards can even be hooked up to my computer.

Is this a battle station?


Yup! What's up with the missing strings though?

Does musikchan like the blues? What are some good albums to check out?


Yeah, I like some blues

The Complete Robert Johnson
Anything by Robert Pete Williams
Skip James - Today!
Mississippi John Hurt - Today!
Taj Mahal - Mo' Roots
Rising Sons - S/T
James Booker - Resurrection of the Bayou Maharajah
Nick Gravenites - My Labors (there's probably some good Janis Joplin that sounds just like this, but I don't know which album's best)

Blind Willie Johnson is more gospel, but also pretty great

all very highly recommended


What are the recordings of these like?

My only issue with the blues is it often sounds so shit.


I rarely am annoyed by recording quality so I often don't notice it much either. Both albums called Today, Mo Roots and Rising Sons, and My Labors are all well recorded though iirc, some RPW is too


Alrighty then, must have just been a really shitty quality Robert Johnson recording I had then.


No, those recordings /are/ in fact pretty bad. Amazing music, though
