    A$AP Rocky - Better Things 

    Curren$y featuring Jean la Phare & Dee Low - Blown Away

    Brenda Fassie - Quala

    Brenda's a South African pop singer, sometimes compared to Madonna though tbh I think Madonna ought to be the flattered one there. She was popular during the apartheid era as I understand it.

    Lil Keke - Pimp Tha Pen (Chopped & Screwed)

    J Dilla - Last Donut of The Night

    Joe Pass - A Time For Us

    this is a laidback soul-ish thing. It's from a breakbeat compilation I have.

    Madlib - Indian Deli

    J Dilla - Glamor Sho75

    yeah that's a Dilla song with leetspeak in the title.

    BlackStar (Mos Def x Talib Kweli) featuring Vinia Mojica - KOS (Determination)

    I love the way the sample crackles on this track.

    Pink Kokane - Bawss

    one of my own tracks was bound to come up eventually

    Bola Sette - Bettina

    more stuff from that breakbeats comp (it's several volumes) though this is more lite jazz than anything

    J Dilla - Stop

    Mojave Music - Lost in C....ouds

    I have my whole library on shuffle, don't blame me. I actually kinda can't stand this song anymore (nor most of my Mojave Music output sans the track of the same name and "Pipes of Astra-Khan")

    Luxury Elite - Concierge

    if vaporwave is ever considered enough by critics and the public at large to have a codified set of legends, Lux Elite The Queen will be up there next to St. Pepsi and MacPlus as one of them.

    Denzel Curry featuring Yung Simmie & Rob Bank$ - Threatz

    The album that this is from (Nostalgic 64) is probably the best in its very specific subgenre of 90s Memphis-referencing, amateurishly menacing rap (most heavily associated with Raider Klxn which Curry was a part of). "Bumping Waka Flocka Flame in an underwater tank" indeed. Also Bank$ raps about fucking his girlfriend in a snuggie which has to be a first.

    Earl Sweatshirt featuring Frank Ocean - Sunday

    Aesop Rock - Tetra

    Aes is not a punchline rapper but "wore the same hoodie every day like Mumm-Ra" is a good punchline.

    Blahzay Blahzay - Posse Jumpah

    Blahzay Blahzay are one of tons and tons and tons of largely forgotten 90s New York rap acts. Detritus of the Golden Age but as far as it goes this is some pretty good stuff.

    Camp Lo - Mean Joe

    Warren G f. Mr. Malik - What's Next

    MF DOOM & Count Bass D - Potholderz

    King Geedorah f. MF DOOM - The Final HouK

    Camp Lo - Power Man

    Grandemarshall - Yerp!

    I guess it's just part of central air. every so often it shifts to hit the edge and briefly makes a repetitive clicking sound before kicking itself off the wall. this happens with a period of anywhere from less than a second to over thirty seconds, and the clicking usually lasts about two seconds but can go up to say twenty.

    I can also hear people shifting in beds at totally irregular intervals.

    And now, with a change of mood, it's the title screen theme from Aquaria.

    and since Aquaria's music tends to run together a bit (a side effect of a certain design objective), now i am thinking of the Mithalas ruins theme

    (note that this and the previous two posts did not involve me actulaly playing anything from my speakers -- it was all music going on in my head)

    edit: and now it's the mithalas cathedral theme

    edit: the strings in that have made me think of "Nature" from eXceed 1

    and now it's back to Sexy Naughty Bitchy

    what is there to get you are supposed to post what song(s) you're listening to and comment on them if you want

    Nitya posted "a fan" (HAHAHAHAHA it's funny because that's not a song) and you don't actually know the artists who made what you're listening to

    fuck I just want a simple thread for us to possibly share some neat songs with each other not everything has to be couched in 55 layers of irony or some kind of weird joke, there is nothing to get, I described exactly the thread's purpose in the opening post and if you're not interested just don't post in it and let it die a natural death.

    I _do_ know what artists made the stuff I was listening to:
    * Well, I don't know Tata Young.  I only got that name from a Youtube vid.
    * Dave Wise and others worked on Donkey Kong Country.  Wise is probably the most famous of the bunch, but I think Robin Beanland may have helped him with the DKC1 soundtrack.  The track itself is a compound-time higher-stress remix of the main DKC "Jungle Hijinx" theme.
    * The soundtrack of Aquaria was done by Alec Holowka, who specifically wrote the soundtrack to be tonally and motivically coherent (or repetitive, if you're not in the mood for it) -- most tracks are in D minor / F major, in order to accommodate a chanting-based game mechanic.  Most of the tracks are in 4 time, as well.  And many do in fact share one common leitmotif, though it's not always hugely prominent.  But due to these similarities, they DO tend to bleed into each other mentally.  I've only listened to one other OST by Alec Holowka, for Crayon Physics Deluxe, and it has a similarly ambient/melodic/"pretty" sound to it.
    * Okay, I'm also not familiar with Shibayan (the composer for eXceed - Gun Bullet Children, a.k.a. eXceed 1.)  All I know is that someone's told me that that OST is like European techno or acid trance or something like that.  Also I probably listen to it "wrong" in the sense that I naturally pay more attention to things like tonality and harmony than instrumentation/samples but then again I am enjoying it so who's to say it's really all that wrong.

    I didn't want to share youtube vids since they're cluttery and I saw you didn't use them so I wanted to respect that.

    fuck I just want a simple thread for us to possibly share some neat
    songs with each other not everything has to be couched in 55 layers of

    interested just don't post in it and let it die a natural death.

    well i _am_ in fact posting what i am in fact listening to at the time, and i am sometimes commenting on what i am listening to as well.

    sorry i don't know any of the stuff you posted so i can't comment on it.

    Thou shalt not be afraid; I am with you.
    Alec Holowka - Dark Places - {Aquaria}

    Makes me think about why we associate dark places with low notes and bright places with high notes...
  • I think I tried this thread before here and got pretty much the same result. But, here goes.

    Led Zeppelin - Night Flight
  • Thou shalt not be afraid; I am with you.
    Alec Holowka - Archaic - {Aquaria}

    This is one of the tracks that's not in D minor / F major.  It's in E phrygian, which basically meant that Naija's chanting scale had to change to D dorian (i.e. include a B natural instead of B flat).  While this greatly constrained the tonality variety in this OST, it also led to some interesting creative choices.

    Incidentally, it probably says something about how my mind interprets tonality in terms of meaning, since the OST being relatively uniform tonality-wise gave me a sense of similarity to most of the areas in the game.  For example, the Energy Temple (the area with this track here) feels more different from the Home Waters area than the difference between the Forest and Home Waters areas.

    Blues.  Also, a TF2 track that's NOT in E minor, lol.  (The key of E minor dominates the soundtrack.  And by soundtrack, I mean assortment of randomly-selected title screen themes, and a few fanfares.)

    on another stupid statement dance mix binge right now...mentally replaying a rhythm for "finagle a bagel" that i came up a while back.

    and suddenly it's morphed into Tiny Tim - Living in the Sunlight

    yeah, having one of those loopy moments.

    Robert DeLong - Happy

    (The transition between those last two tracks is legit the best one on the album. Reminds me a little bit of No Sunlight and Cath from Death Cab's Narrow Stairs in that both sets of tracks end up feeling like singular songs.)

    Robert DeLong - Few Years Make

    (Been listening to this for a month and a half and still stumbling over the words.)

    Robert DeLong - Religious Views

    Robert DeLong - Complex by Degree
    Robert DeLong - _________
    Robert DeLong - Perfect

    (Undeniably my favorite track on the album. Not sure who the female vocalist is on it, but her soprano gives the song a sort of sweetness DeLong alone can't, though his matter-of-fact vox are always a pleasure regardless. It's also one of the few electronic songs I know of that masterfully uses a xylophone, so there's that.)
