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?

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.

Traditional Japanese Music (7)

1 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-05-21 12:41 ID:Mhk91TGe

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 ( 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.

2 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-06-06 22:46 ID:jPTyUzgK

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.

3 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-06-07 05:44 ID:4PqyMz6W

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.

5 Name: bubu 2005-06-18 23:38 ID:Heaven

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 likeit


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?

Album-a-Day (2)

1 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2006-05-11 01:22 ID:JlBRg7yN
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.

Trip Hop suggestions (16)

1 Name: Abby 2005-12-05 01:44 ID:FPzwCvHC

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?

8 Name: Bubu F. Blackintosh 2005-12-15 03:50 ID:Heaven

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.

9 Name: Bubu F. Blabla 2005-12-15 03:51 ID:Heaven

thanks for the vanishing sentences. Bubu appreciates.

10 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-12-17 22:28 ID:wKeQQlc7

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.

11 Name: ♪ ☆ Unpopular Popstar ☆ ♪ 2005-12-18 15:03 ID:ikt3kn5L

This is why labelling music is silly and useless, especially the hyper-categorization that's infected the electronic music scene.

12 Name: Bubu F. Betonbass 2005-12-19 01:55 ID:Heaven

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)

13 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2006-03-31 08:58 ID:m21SepgM

I'd suggest
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

14 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2006-03-31 12:07 ID:DyVuKQa5

I recommend the Sneaker Pimps, and Bjork.

15 Name: ♪ ☆ Anonymous Popstar ☆ ♪ : 2006-04-01 14:25 ID:DKsuve2K

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.
