6 okt 2009, 16:30 av FinSquandragoGot home last night to find a little packet of CDs from Lens Records in the mailbox and, blow the man down, it was rounded out with a promo tape. It took a couple of seconds to fully recognize what an oddity a stickered tape is these days, but once the idea had registered, man, what a nostalgia trip.
Fifteen years ago, getting a demo tape in the mail was kind of exciting but hardly novel. Hell, with Usenet groups like rec.music.promotional, some musicians were actively looking for people to give their stuff to for free, and I've got boxes of the damned things kicking around in storage. Is there a fan of industrial rock who was online in the mid-'90s who hasn't had a copy of Guinea Pig's Taken Below demo CD at one point? The Godflesh-y grind of Beauty? Noise Level 9's For The Ear? This stuff, and being quasi-spammed by bands like The Darkest of The Hillside Thickets and Sun City Girls engineering guru Scott Colburn, was my introduction to independently-released music.
22 feb 2009, 23:01 av elvorBecause it is a boring Sunday evening, I thought I'd write something. So today I bring you my Top 11 Artists You Might Don't Know, a list of some of my favourite musical artists you probably haven't heard of. Why Top 11? Because I like to go one step beyond. So, let's get started.
(And yes, the title and top 11 thing are shamelessly stolen from thatguywiththeglasses.com. Very funny site, check it out. Also these really don't have any order, just as they come into my head)
11. Animal Alpha
A Norwegian rock band, with a very impressive female singer (who happens to dress as a clown, so yeah.) Her vocal performance on Catch Me is amazing, and a little scary. Instrumentally, a pretty solid band, with some catchy tunes, especially Trøbbel, which you should YouTube straight away
10. The Darkest of The Hillside Thickets
Cultists On Board
Ride The Flying Polyp
12 jan 2009, 20:55 av ZodokaiI figured that I'd keep track of my ever growing CD collection, so I'll update this whenever I get another album. Be sure to check back somewhat often to see my newest purchases! Please keep in mind that I'm not including singles, EPs, compilations by several artists, or CDs I've burned from friends. These are all albums I physically have.

Quoted from my previous journal of this nature:
With all of these “greatest *insert genre here*” lists being posted all over Last.fm, I thought I might try something a little different; something that would get people thinking about broadening their horizons, while still allowing them to hear the same kind of music they enjoy listening to, in terms of mood and tone.
These are all very atmospheric albums that convey to their listeners the imagery of the void of space, whether the lyrics (if there are any) actually reflect that imagery or not. These albums will instill a sense of darkness as well as enlightenment and you’ll find yourself answering the beckon call of those glimmering stars and planets…
On a late-night stroll, you come upon a soft, grassy hill. You decide to stop for a while and lie at the top of it, face up, arms comfortably placed behind your head. …
9 feb 2008, 07:37 av gwallaI'm bored right now so y'all get a pointless meme to clog band journals.
1. King Crimson — I understand the whole thing about not becoming a dinosaur act, but refusing to play the old stuff live, period, kinda sucks. Also, Islands was horrible.
2. Joe Satriani — Please, Joe, do not sing ever again. I thought you'd learned your lesson on Flying In A Blue Dream, but then you put vocals on Is There Love in Space?. Why? Your lyrics are uninspired and your voice is dull. To borrow an album title from Frank Zappa, shut up 'n' play yer guitar!
3. Magma — Even after all this time, when listening on random shuffle I frequently can't name a track just by hearing it. Also, what's up with the kazoo on Attahk?
4. Electric Six — Once you tire of the joke of mixing hard rock and disco, there isn't much left.
5. Battles — Alvin! Simon! Theodore! (Also, BTTLS is a completely boring track)
6. Oingo Boingo — Whored out tracks to just about every movie made in the '80s, which resulted in some really half-assed work like Bachelor Party. …
25 dec 2007, 08:04 av Catatonikhas been, simply stunning.
On all fronts as well.
From the ultra-obscure cyber-grind, to mainstream pop/alt rock the year has delivered a plentitude of brilliant albums over such a wide spread base it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to know them all.
Some of them I am proud to have shared with my community, many of them I recieved through the MD's bizarrely awesome doors. The list though, reads a little eclectically to some, and flat out unintelligable to many. That said I am goinng to compile a list of the albums I have still sitting on my hard drive, then comment on a few albums I encourage everyone to try.
It should be noted, that any albums still sitting on my hard drive have, for the most part gone into regular and sometimes obsessive plays.
Abigails Ghost - Selling Insincerity
Animate Objects - Riding in Fast Cars With Your Mamma
Antibalas - Security
Balkan Beat Box - Nu Med
Blue Sky Black Death - Razahs Ladder
Buck 65 - Situations
Busdriver - roadkillovercoat
15 apr 2007, 19:30 av AngelasticWell I'm kind of tired from partying all weekend instead of coding, so I don't feel like doing anything useful. Therefore, as a special treat, you get a quiz copied from here.
Step 1: Open up whatever MP3 program you use and add every song in your collection.
Step 2: Put it on random.
Step 3: Post the first line from the first 20 songs that play, no matter how embarassing the song.
Step 4: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
Step 5: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
Step 6: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!
So in the end three had the first lines identical to the song names, and two had no lyrics, but I've left them in anyway so that this is a representative sample of my music. You don't have to guess those two.
1 J'ai bien mangé, j'ai bien bu (well this one is a bit too easy.)
2 The next song that played had no lyrics... hmm, this is not going too well.
