what are you listening to? - sth - 15-04-2020

simple idea: post what you're listening to, preferably with a link to where others can check it out.
i'll start:

SVFFER - Systematisierung - https://svffer.bandcamp.com/album/empathist


RE: what are you listening to? - dcli - 15-04-2020

i haven't been listening to a ton of music lately - i usually listen on physical media and don't have access to my cd player, tape deck, or turntable right now.

however, here's what i've been listening to on my pc:
1. the new "faþir" album by forndom, i ordered the limited cd box set (thanks uncle sam). i don't like it as much as his first two albums, but i think his art is really great so i'm glad to support him.

2. "the dawg years" album by blaze foley. i've been listening to this for years, and it always comes back to me.

3. alash's "achai" album (folkways). throat singing, especially the way the steppe turkic people do it, is just intoxicating.

4. the song that's been stuck in my head recently is "chick habit" by april march. it's an english cover of serge gainsbourg's "laisse tomber les filles." i could've sworn it was recorded in the 60s, but it was actually released in 1995 - april faithfully imitated that yeye sound i really enjoy.

i'll continue this on as i listen to more! maybe share some pictures of my hifi setup when i get back to it post-pandemic-panic.

Just bought Joni Mitchell's Miles of Aisles. It's a great album.


RE: what are you listening to? - dcli - 16-04-2020

i love joni! i'm glad she's still around, albeit being a miracle given all the smokes she's sucked down in her day. one of my favorite photos of her is here (https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/da/Joni_Mitchell_and_Peter_Bogner.jpg). she's got a pack in front of her and a mug filled with smokes on the table.


RE: what are you listening to? - jkl - 17-04-2020

I came back to the Stolen Babies' There Be Squabbles Ahead lately. Still, the latest vinyls I bought were the new albums by The Hirsch Effekt (new song) and Friends of Gas (older song).

RE: what are you listening to? - wolf - 13-05-2020

Nowadays I got myself listening only instrumental demos. One, in special , is the Splinter by Sneaker Pimps. I'm really preferring music without voice lately ...

RE: what are you listening to? - fre d die - 22-08-2020

most recent vinyl was Country Protest by Eugene Chadbourne, i guess it's essentially avant-garde country music. Can't find a link to that album but this is my favourite youtube video of him. saw him live, it was great!


RE: what are you listening to? - budRich - 22-08-2020

cool, really nice production, can imagine it being one of those albums you put on in the background because its comfy, and then a month later realizing it has been played on average 10 times a day.

Also, saw the "shownotes" on the video... They released it end of february and seemed to have had a really awesome tour booked for the spring... so much good times where lost this summer of hate...


RE: what are you listening to? - jkl - 23-08-2020

I can only imagine that 2021 will be packed with live concerts.


RE: what are you listening to? - Ramiferous - 18-09-2020

Lately, I've really been enjoying Standards new album
as well as an oldie from Intervals although I only stumbled across it lately.

You listened to Polyphia ?

This is instrumental math rock style is my vibe at the moment.


RE: what are you listening to? - neeasade - 18-09-2020

I recently made a post containing many of my "gotos" https://notes.neeasade.net/sound-log.html

but rn I'm stuck on all the bonobo albums.


RE: what are you listening to? - evbo - 18-09-2020

Apologies for the youtube links but it's the easiest way to share music these days.

The new Falconer album is pretty awesome, but also bittersweet as they are quitting.

Green Lung - Woodland Rites Absolute banger occult rock. You owe it to yourself to listen to the first 3 tracks on this album.

Gygax's latest album is pretty amazing. Thin Lizzy meets Rush meets D&D.

Last but not least, I've been listening to a lot of Equilbrium lately. Great German power metal band, this is my personal favorite track by them

Amen to that. Several shows I was really looking forward to were cancelled this year, including some "First time in the USA" shows from European bands I really like. I'm still pissed that Beast In Black's USA tour got cancelled.


RE: what are you listening to? - mcol - 03-10-2020

Discovered the way things once were by a million bright ambassadors of morning this week, goooood shit. Long-form guitar-focussed intense instrumentals. The kinda stuff that makes me want to make my own music.

I have not - just found their bandcamp. Any album you'd recommend?
