I don't trust metacritic because it seems very rare for an album to be yellow, and practically impossible to be red. It's like bad, or even mediocre albums, practically doesn't exist in the critical consensus' eyes. There's also a complete disregard for anything avant-garde on that site.

Haven't listened to Little Simz yet, been meaning to. I've been neglecting hip hop the past while for some reason.

This is my favourite album made by a woman so far this year. A Syrian R&B/Ambient Pop musician, and she produced everything as well.

New Jute Gyte came out yesterday. This time he uses a lot of techniques found in Stochastic Music. It's pretty much the Xenakis of metal.

That is so cool. They're one of the few bands I'd really like to see in a concert.

Young kid covers "In the Name of God" by Dream Theater all by himself. He plays guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and piano. He leaves the singing out, but I won't blame him for that.

Song is almost 14 minutes. If you want to see the freaky stuff, tune in at around 7:30.

The first 1/10 I've given to in 4 years. The part at 1:50 made me laugh at how ridiculous they took it. Trying to bring Spring Breakers music back.

Are there any kpop fans on this forum? I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in a countdown thread of my favorites. The list size would probably be between 20 and 30.

My summer playlist, which I started going over during the beginning of June consists of two albums by John Fahey; “Volume 5: The Transfiguration of Blind Joe Death” and “Volume 6: Days Have Gone By”, “Armchair Boogie” by Michael Hurley and “Visions of the Country” by Robbie Basho.

I discovered Fahey two years ago while going over Scaruffi’s list of his favorite albums in which he listed “Fare Forward Voyagers (Soldier's Choice)". I liked the album back then but didn’t go back to Fahey’s style afterwards that often. To expand on his genre which is called American Primitivism by RYM, I was browsing some charts made by them and decided on the mentioned two albums by him and also the one by Robbie Basho.

The one by Michael Hurley, I decided to give it a go after lending a heed to his songs during my re-watch of Deadwood episodes. It is a calm and soothing album like the other three and I also like the cover art of it:

One artist I gravitated towards after getting into John Fahey is the guitarist William Tyler. Not exactly pure American primitivism, but a sort of spiritual successor if you will. Great music for long drives.

This would definitely be #1 of the year if it wasn't for The Caretaker. This destroys Charli XCX at her own game.

Maybe it's hard to believe, but I just listened to Old Town Road......... for the first time!
The whole song didn't even ring a bell. I think I really never heard it before. I try to avoid hit-radio and this song made me remember why I do that. This is the song that has been #1 for the longest time in a row? Seriously?! It's completely boring. It's only 2.5 minutes long, but it's getting repetitious even in that short runtime. It doesn't even have a memorable catchy chorus. WTF?! I didn't expect to like it, considering my taste in music, but at least I expected to get a vague idea of why other people might like it. I really don't get it.

I had never heard of it before your post and I was like ‘how have I never heard the longest #song’ until I realised it was new. Never heard of the artist either. Skimmed through it on YT and it was just robot trash. :shrug:

I don't read or skim any news, but yeah it's nice and comfy under my rock :P I don't really hear about any kind of pop culture unless it gets mentioned on this forum. Sometimes I click on some stuff on Spotify I see the names and titles of popular stuff but it's all gobbledegook to me.

Idk I haven’t listened to the radio since 2003, don’t know anything about the current world of music. My dad stays up to date with all this stuff and tortured me with a ton of music videos that were big about a year ago, so I just assume it’s ‘for everyone’.

But Lulu is an intentionally good album. It has some of Metallica's best riffs, and Lou Reed clearly stopped giving a fuck and let it show in his lyrics.

Trying to build a running playlist, I've got this so far: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/6imkt ... ucwCM8iiNw

It's pretty much just songs I like that seem high energy or that I've enjoyed walking to, and I'm still trialing it out. Most running playlists I come across are full of songs I've never heard of, but seems to be primarily modern pop/R&b trash and most of my music is too slow, so yea. Any suggestions of stuff to add? Or other playlists that you've come across?
