Anybody here listens to NiN?
Trent's new album 'With teeth' will be out soon; iv'e heard a few tracks from the album, and im liking them already..
Ok, so it's softer and more mainstream.. but really, some of it really kicks ass!.. i assume some of you heard the new single 'the hand that feeds'.. thoughts?
> Anything new? Nope. Same old shit? Definitely.
> Same old shit?
i only wish..
The DVD-A for With Teeth is goddamn awesome. Same goes for The Downward Spiral.
I want to hear more NIN released in DVD-A.
YES I BUMPED AN OLD THREAD FUCK OFF
Totsozplz, but in my opinion Nine Inch Nails is crap.
What a coincidence, because they are!
They kick YOUR ass.
( ´Д`) Trent, you big, hulking arnie-type. Who fed you the beefcake 3000?
Where would be a good place to start looking for traditional Japanese music or Japanese folk music in general, such as ondo, taiko and such? The Wikipedia page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Japan) gives surprisingly few (and most of them useless) starting points. I am especially looking for songs to download so as to get a feeling who is who and what is what before I want to buy anything.
Kodo is a pretty famous taiko group, I have "The Best of Kodo" and it's got a lot of good selections. You might also try Eitetsu Hayashi, who does a one-man taiko thing (not traditional, but he's good) and also mixes it up with other instruments. "Haru" is a good album from him, I have that too.
If you're interested in shamisen, especially tsugaru (a faster playing style) try Yoshida Brothers (吉田兄弟). I had a harder time finding them on english p2p networks, but it might be easier now that they've played in the States a bit.
Although this really isn't performed with traditional Japanese instruments, I like this album. (esp. Etenraku)
Hey, thanks for the neat tips! I'll check them out later, gotta run now, though.
Three albums that may serve as easily accessible first steps:
Jean-Pierre Rampal & Lily Laskine - Japanese Melodies for Flute and Harp, Denon 35C37-7127
This is some rather epic shit, if somewhat on the fever dream side. Basically, they took a bunch of famous traditionals (cf. the Yo-Yo Ma record "japanese melodies" on Cbsm), put them in a sack with a flute and a harp and proceeded to bust shit up quite severely by hitting the sack with iron paddles. Then they shook the sack over an LP press. It's a good release, but every now and then you can hear 1700-France gripping at your throat.
Kazue Sawai - Japon. Splendeur de Koto, Playasound PS 65131
A very nice glance at koto music. You may know Kazue Sawai from her work with Zorn and Cage; an outstanding solo player. Although excellently performed, a bit flat overall - there's always a big sign "NAIVE!" hanging above this one.
Kikusui Kofu - Japanese Masterpieces for the Shakuhachi, Lyrichord - LLST 7176
This one is a gem, because it isn't quite so much watered down, yet requiring near zero acquaintance with traditional japanese and chinese music to be enjoyed.
I feel lonely and cross a lion suspension bridge.
It was avoided in savanna by everybody.
The person whom I met over there of a bridge was the figure which resembled the sun well.
Are not you afraid of me?
Do not you escape?
I nodded with wind to blow once.
Do you know a reason of tears?
I did not understand it, but perhaps you gave the shade of wet cheeks.
While we're on the subject, I'm looking for some good Tsugaru shamisen music. There's plenty out there with fruity synths and corny orchestral backing, but I'm after pure, raw solo stuff played by a real virtuoso. Can anyone help me out?
2 New full length albums from Himei Koukotsu, avaliable now. For fans of Japanoise, both albums contain over 45 minutes of stuff and are avaliable from:
Will also soon be avaliable from Cold Spring Records, among others.
Has anyone else heard of his stuff, what do you think?
Do you know the title of the music of this animation?
Patrick Nuo - Five Days
This site promotes making music by writing an album in one day with no outtakes and using no ideas from before the day. A lot of the results are quite enjoyable. I just got done listening to Tom 7's "Quad Emotional Damage", which is all the more impressive for having been made under such tight time pressure.
If any musicians are reading this, I'd suggest trying it, otherwise there's a lot of good stuff there to listen to.
>Don't even think about suing music fans.
>That's the message a group of musicians - from veterans Blue Rodeo to international superstars Barenaked Ladies and newcomers Broken Social Scene - sent yesterday to federal politicians who wield the power to toughen copyright legislation.
Good for them! I hope this is the start of a trend.
ITT thread we post tracks, artists, and other things that use this interesting and highly addictive signature.
THe main reason behind this is I'm going to be performing a set that features cross signature drifting (lol).
For real, I'm seriously bummed. Tsunami Bomb ruled. I totally wanted to get a hand on Agent M.
I know these words, but this thread makes no sense.
I only found out now. Goddammit.
So, I've heard Massive Attack and Portishead and have been curious about other musicians of the trip-hop variety, but I'm not sure where to start looking. I like the kind with actual singing (usually from females) and a sort of... I dunno, dreamy feeling to it - like you could listen to the stuff while looking out the window of a car while in the passenger seat. Suggestions?
DJ KRUSH - MEISO
DJ KRUSH - MILIGHT
Dj Krush counts as triphop now!?
Chroma Key fucking wins. Oh man, Hell Mary and Camera 4 are such My most recent discovery in this sector is Omfo ("Our Man From Odessa") - Trans Balkan Express (The title and the title track are both an allusion to Kraftwerk for fucking ever of course). It's very great. It's very Slavic. It wins.
thanks for the vanishing sentences. Bubu appreciates.
morcheeba is a must if you like this shit
that said, I'm very unclear on the definition of triphop.
Would 'Endtroducing' count as triphop?
How about the Unkle albums?
How about Wale Oyejides instrumentals?
How about some of the 'Cibo Matto' tracks? They use the same tempo, same drumsound, same general structure, only not all through some dark depressive filter.
This is why labelling music is silly and useless, especially the hyper-categorization that's infected the electronic music scene.
A few more suggestions:
Waldeck - Balance of the Force
Anubian Lights - Let Not The Flame Die Out
Anubian Lights - Naz Bar
Anubian Lights - The Eternal Sky
Bonobo - Dial M for Monkey
Baby Fox is the only outfit that has ever managed to remix an Amon Tobin song into something even better! I'm talking about "Cujo - Northstar: Baby Fox remix" of course.
Even Death In Vegas has some songs that fit the direction, e.g. "I Spy" from the Dead Elvis album.
>morcheeba is a must if you like this shit
>that said, I'm very unclear on the definition of triphop.
yes and yes. I was somewhat surprised to see Chroma Key in this thread, but then I suck at categories because I prefer relative association to categorization (to me Chroma Key sounds more like MaruMari or Fred Avril than like Morcheeba or XY)
Sneaker Pimps - Wasted Early Sunday Morning
Zero 7 and Air come to mind too, but I cannot think of a particular song.
Olive - Miracle
Lunik - What You Are
Some people think Poe is trip-hop apparently
I'll second most of the other suggestions in this thread too
I recommend the Sneaker Pimps, and Bjork.
Heard a rumour a few weeks back that Portishead is working on a new album. It'd be nice to see what direction they'll take after a decade of nothing happening.
You might be interested in the duo known as "Boards of Canada."
What is denpa? Please teach me in the ways of denpa!
I think dempa song(電波ソング) is some kind of lunatic song.
It's too moe for Westerners!
Saw this back at world2ch
some of them didn't seem that moe to me.
