Nice! These guys are clearly enjoying themselves. Featuring the Assassin's Creed violin ensemble as well.
L.A. Guns - Over the Edge
The sun has been out a bit around here and what better soundtrack for it than innocent psychedelic pop? This first band, Triptides, has been a really pleasant discovery in that genre for me. Perfect three-minute pop melodies full of sunshine dust. The feeling is that of opening a box of delicious chocolates. You try one and it is really good, but alas! soon it is finished. Still, by now you have tried the next one and, amazingly, it is even better. And so on. That is how this album works. Instead of fantasising about gianduja I should point out that there are lots of Triptides albums and everything of theirs I have heard so far has been excellent. The spirit of the Byrds transposed to today although there are obvious technical differences (guitars (fewer), keyboards (present), vocal harmonies (fewer)...)
Triptides - Visitors
Another generally sunny band is Stereolab and this is my favourite album of theirs by some distance. This is a sixties-like world of technicolor, marshmallows and obligatory beehive hairstyles for ladies: so far, so tangential to Triptides, However this band presents more of a chai-latte-with-extra-maple-syrup hipster vision which is captivating when it works, but reduces to empty, smug and nauseatingly "ironic" posturing when it doesn't - and there are Stereolab albums which, in my opinion, do fail in this way. Even so the group were outstanding at their best. The twin female voices may seem harmlessly cute but become portentous when needed (e.g. "Three Longers Later"), and the kind of hypnotic repetitive "motorik" beat resurrected from Krautrock was really quite fresh at the time: if you feel there are lots of band sounding like this that probably means most of them picked up the sound from these guys! (Regret: I would have posted some Can a long time ago, but that record company is clearly really aggressive about not letting their best stuff onto Youtube.)
Stereolab - Mars Audiac Quintet
Meanwhile, not everyone is trvely grimdark in Norway. As far as I can make out, Pajjama are two Norwegian guys and they are making a great job of using the chiptune toolbox to compose sort-of prog rock compositions. I would call them "suites" rather than "pieces" but the effect is still excellent. Add mid-eighties pastiche videos and end up with a great and truly creative result.
Pajjama - Starch
For added unearthliness, there are funky passages as well. "Pachinko Devil" is only one movement of the "Jane Papaya" suite, but it is too endearing not to reference.
Pajjama - Pachinko Devil
Recently been loving the FMA:Brotherhood soundtrack. Chemistry is an amazing song.
didn't like the game but I'd be lying if I say the OP isn't amazing
This was / is an excellent doom metal band. It is pretty recognisable in a crowded genre because
1) the guitars sound phenomenal - like some huge car that burns at least thrice as much fuel as anyone could possibly call reasonable;
2) they've got clean female vocals on top of that.
Nice. Play it loud.
The River - Drawing Down The Sun
VNV Nation - When is the Future?
A folk group from Portugal. This is not pure folk but what rock arrangements there are have been applied very carefully and in the best possible taste. I would say the result is about 85% folk and 15% rock. Nice melodies and lovely production quality. Eclectic too - while the expected guitar and violin backbone is there, I am not sure if bagpipes and didgeridoo are traditionally Portuguese instruments, for instance. (A quick google later: apparently bagpipes probably are, they're clearly a much more international instrument than I thought). Bits of the album recall Eastern European gypsy music as well. As for me, my heart was stolen by the intense bit in the opening piece, which I did not see coming at all. Pleasant and sunny.
At-Tambur - st
Glorious metal/prog hybrid from Iceland. I find all of Sólstafir's output worthwhile but I do prefer this classic to their more recent albums.
Sólstafir - Masterpiece of Bitterness
Beautiful neo-krautrock album. Very laid-back for something this heavily psychedelic.
Electric Moon - Stardust Rituals
This is an Italian late 90s oddity: a record masquerading as wholesome songs for children. But it soon turns out the happy tree has deadly, poisonous spikes, the friendly sun's rays get through the depleted ozone layer with cancerogenic strength, and different cute nursery characters die over the course of the album as the psychotic quality of the lyrics becomes puzzlingly apparent. This corruption is mirrored in the musical language, which adjoins industrial elements for that sinister touch. A highly bizarre and therefore interesting release which was clearly written and recorded to answer some deeply felt need, hopefully it had the aimed-for cathartic effect! I wonder if this record makes more sense to Italian speakers.
Musica Per Bambini - Nascondino Coll'Assassino
Oh dear, the thread has gone comatose. I hope this isn't my fault in some way. Any first aiders around?
Anyway, my sound-dish for today was prepared by Craig Williamson from NZ. In the late nineties, he played bass in one of the earlier stoner rock bands, Datura, who had a healthy heavy psych orientation. Their second album in particular contains a few belters, "Reaching out" for instance.
Datura - Visions for the Celestial
Since Datura's dissolution, Craig has been multi-instrumenting and recording solo albums under the project name Lamp Of The Universe. Whilst the hippie is very strong on these, they also display outstanding musicianship and excellent production values - in fact, this is the one lone fighter heavy psych project I know of which (in my mind) passes without difficulties in both those areas. The genre of Lamp Of The Universe is close to what was once called "raga rock": space rock with a significant Indian influence, with a strong use of sitars in particular. There are a number of Krautrock bands starting from a similar point (Kalacakra for instance) but I prefer LOTU because the approach is in general less ambient and the tendency to just noodle on in weed-induced bliss for 20 minutes at a time is much less present. Especially given the number of albums LOTU have put out, there's a huge lot of musical talent to investigate for just this one guy!
Lamp Of The Universe - Transcendence
it has gone commatose mainly because of the official steamgifts song thread that Mully has set up, it has giveaways and its better organized so sadly it makes sense that this one would be left behind :C
You are right, that must be it. Hmm, I'd rather post albums than songs, though. Would you mind if I sometimes bump this thread with new posts even if no one else posts in it anymore? Maybe the notifications are annoying to you so I'll stop if you don't want this.
nah i dont mind at all, i like the notifications actually and this thread is a great source of new music for me
Excellent, let's keep this bad boy rocking whatever happens then. ;-)
for real tho the silent hill music is insane, my fav is theme of laura
best song ever
