There's a DT-hating community everywhere. :angry:
DT is probably one of the most hated bands ever, I don't even know why that is (I mean surely there are MUCH worse bands out there...), but it seems to me that a lot of people are just "following a trend" and don't even have a clue what they are actually hating on... many have not listened to a single album... that's a thing I've noticed with a lot of art, including films. I'm not a fan of DT, but I sort of feel sorry for those guys :lol:
On the other hand they have a huge fanbase that accept everything they do. They sell out huge venues and are doing fine financially as gar as I know. No need to feel sorry. It's still one of the biggest progmetal bands ever.

I feel like I'm the last person in the world to hear about Kamasi Washington. It makes me ask myself what I've been doing for the past three years (the answer is teaching and little else).

Anyway, if someday I end up trapped in a prison. And if I find a way to escape that involves making my own home-made and human-powered wings. And if I then ignore warnings about flying to close to the sun, this is the song I want playing as my wings disintegrate and I plunge into the sea.

Bjork - Homogenic

I've only listened to her four first albums so far, but the third and fourth one are by far her best.

Agreed, Homogenic and Vespertine are better start-to-finish than Debut and Post (there are a couple of somewhat skippable tracks on those two, whereas Homogenic and Vespertine I always play all the way through).

Yes, i do the same thing probably. I need to hear Debut and Post again, but there are way more forgettable tracks on them, while on Homogenic her track record is strong. I might listen Vespertine now again (for third or fourth time already).



This is SO BEAUTIFUL, haha. Why is Braids so underrated :(

KÁRYYN is Karin Tatoyan, a Syrian-Armenian American composer turned electronic artist, based in Los Angeles, CA. Her debut EP Quanta 1 was released in early 2017 and includes the single "Aleppo", a four-minute lament “all about the brain processing memory” that recalls, in the track as well as its home-video style accompanying visual, childhood stays in the city with her cousins. “I wrote this song in 2015 during a time when the word or the name Aleppo wasn’t being said very often,” she explains. Her music and multimedia work (including "Of Light", a multimedia project with American director Samantha Shay inspired by her mentor Marina Abramovic) has been praised by Björk, and she cites John Tavener and Arvo Pärt as influences.




It might be too abstract or not perfect, but i like it.

there was a category on tonight's episode of Jeopardy named after/based around this song. I imagine the reference was lost on a typical Jeopardy audience. (No masturbation references in the jeopardy questions tho).

It's in line with my belief that retro-hype broadly operates in a sliding window of 30 years, but never could I have imagined that there would be a reboot of the mellow/happy hardcore culture.

Some kids are still walking around with Nirvana-shirts, so maybe the revival won't only consist of happy hardcore crap.

No worries, there will be plenty of old farts overstating the importance of 90s pop bands, claiming it was the best music ever made while dissing contemporary music in the same swoop of ill-advised nostalgia.

Definitely something to look forward to 😁

Perfect heavy metal intro song (the next on on the album wasn't that great tho)

better follow with

Moby - Broken Places

Nirvana - Plateau

I watched Animal Factory (2000) last night, which is a prison drama featuring Willem Dafoe and directed by Steve Buscemi. Immediately afterwards, I thought, well that was all right. But over the past 24 hours, my mind keeps going back to it. And the more I think about it, the more impressed I am. It fits the formula of a certain type of movie I like, which I can best describe as well-acted authentic characters in low-key dramatic situations. My mind always goes back to John Sayles when I write something like that, but I've written enough about Sayles elsewhere in this forum. Another more obvious point of comparison is Buscemi's own directorial debut, Trees Lounge (1996). Anyway, the crux of the movie is the character played by Dafoe, a prison lifer who is tough and dangerous but also desperate for a certain kind of tenderness in his life. We learn about him mostly through his interactions with a young prison protege he mentors, played by Ed Furlong, but the first important glimpse into the complexity of Dafoe's character comes here:



I was confused by this scene at first, and it took me a whole day of thinking to sort of understand what it is saying about Dafoe's character.

Anyway, I highly recommend the movie (it's on amazon prime), but the reason I mention it here is that song kind of grabbed me too, which is odd because it has a lot of characteristics that would normally really turn me off: over-tremulous voicing, an open-mic night kind of mannered emotiveness, a bit discordant instrumentals. But like the movie, I've really come around to it. And it turns out the singer is the leader of a relatively well-known band. Here's the full studio version of the song. I think I've listened to it eight times today.



Last question, has anyone seen Buscemi's other two movies: Lonesome Jim and Interview? Would you recommend?

Ladytron released their latest album yesterday on PledgeMusic, so I've been listening to that. Not entirely sure how I feel about it because they hadn't released an album since 2011 and some of the songs sounds more similar to the lead singer's (Marnie) solo albums. I like all the songs though (l) But I don't think I have a favorite that stands out above the rest. Tower of Glass (l) Paper Highways (l) The Mountain (l) Far From Home (l)
