svjchtr's albums of the "week"
« on: May 20, 2011, 07:14 AM »
Hey all. Been lurking here for a little while (over a year already?! man), and now yall have presented me with a relatively unobtrusive way to expose people to some tunes. Doubt I'll be doing this weekly or anything, but whatever :)


I'll start with a recent addiction: Midnight Menu by TOKiMONSTA (2010)


http://www.mediafire.com/?wsdahbxujgxm2so (320 kbps, except for the 15th track which is a crappy 128 - the album's only 14 tracks though, so I'm not sure where this uploader got #15 from? shrug)

Genre: Instrumental Hip-Hop, I guess?

TOKiMONSTA is part of the L.A. hip-hop beats/glitch hop/whatever the hell it's called scene that spawned (most notably) Flying Lotus. Listeners of Flying Lotus will almost certainly enjoy TOKiMONSTA, as they (along with the entire local scene) have a pretty similar sound, although toki's a bit smoother and less abstract.. Listeners of trip-hop and/or hip-hop may also enjoy this, depending on their specific tastes.


A couple sample tracks: (advice: turn volume knob clockwise) TOKiMONSTA - GambleTOKiMONSTA - Look-a-Like


if you want to make a purchase, you can buy some high quality downloads of this album and a couple of her EPs at http://bleep.com/index.php?page=release_details&releaseid=26283 - you can't go wrong buying any of her stuff. She just released a new EP, Creature Dreams, a day or two ago actually, and it's well worth the money.

Enjoy :)

Microtron by pozvakowski.


http://www.mediafire.com/?0yenxymubvd

Genre: somewhere in that loud/awesome bleed between post-rock and post-metal


I was having a conversation about Isis and similar music with a Hungarian fellow a while ago, and he started preaching about a local band and telling me to try them out. I've been in that same goddamn position far too many times to have high expectations (usually ends in "dude, they're 'not bad'! now can we PLEASE talk about something else?!"), but I decided to click his link anyways just to shut him up. Pleasant surprise!

(for listeners of Russian Circles, Isis, Long Distance Calling, God is an Astronaut, Daturah, Caspian, etc etc. anyone who likes their post rock to come with some bite)

Pozvakowski - Jasa

(sound's a little fuzzy on that link but it should give yall an idea of what you're downloading when you click that link)

Clubroot - Self-Titled (2009)



http://www.mediafire.com/?homnyjnwjkh


Genre: Dubstep, Ambient/IDM

For listeners of: Burial, Autechre, electronic downtempo/ambient stuff in general

If you, like me, tend to associate a bunch of distorted "wub wub" noises with the term "dubstep" and generally avoid the genre, you should try this shit out. It's technically dubstep, on account of having dubstep beats and all, but it's dubstep being used as a vehicle for some truly chill spaced-out ambient/idm style music. A couple sample tracks:


Clubroot - low pressure zone
Clubroot - Talisman

I bought that Clubroot album when it came out a few years ago, very Burial like. TOKiMONSTA is great btw, thanks for that.

svjchtr, you have a nice music taste. I'm checking Tokimonsta and Clubroot today because it seems like what I am looking for these days.
Electronica for ambient ears :)

I don't remember much from last night. I just know that I woke up with that Tokimonsta album playing on repeat. I don't get it.

My plan with these is to pick semi-obscure albums that should probably have some appeal outside of the little niche of the music world that they come from. This isn't really about engorging my e-peen, I just kinda assume that most people on this board who'd be into Isis or Autechre or whatever will already have heard them blah blah. If anyone sees something on my last.fm that they're interested in, I can provide my opinion on where to start with them or whatever, but for now I'll stick to the "albums that should have a much larger audience than they do" strategy.

So this time, an album that's a bit more well-known, but nowhere near well-known enough:


Rossz Csillag Allat Született by Venetian Snares (2005)


http://www.mediafire.com/?adhzk1v0my2


Genre: Breakcore

This one's probably somewhere within my top 10 albums of the last decade list. Classical string sounds are complemented by hectic breakbeats.

Venetian Snares - Szamár Madár (Album version) (note: first 1:45 is an intro, so either be patient or skip ahead)

you have a great taste, man! ;)

(though I really like more Clubroot's second album than first, it's so deep and it makes me feel very strange.)
hello memory lover, you are mine

it was a tossup for me whether to post the first or second Clubroot album; they're about even in my book. which of course means that anyone who liked that Clubroot album should probably find the second Clubroot album as well :D

Rhode Island by Pelican City (2000)
Genre: Trip-Hop


https://rs176dt.rapidshare.com/#!download|176l33|411527330|P_C_Island_320.rar|89544|R~6E9FB78BD23B011229D5AD0203D713AA (320 kbps)


Danger Mouse recorded a couple solo albums under the moniker Pelican City back in 1999-2000. Instrumental downtempo trip-hop, very beatsy, and lots of piano/strings. Really quiet/contemplative stuff for the most part, and it's all impossibly smooth. Possibly the chillest music I've ever heard.


Enjoy:

Pelican City - Sesame Street


(note: the other Pelican City album is called The Chilling Effect. well worth picking up if you enjoy Rhode Island)

夢中夢 (Mutyumu) - イリヤ/ilya (2008)



Download:
http://www.mediafire.com/?ytptpbz3gyb03dc (320 kbps)

Genre: avantpostrockclassicaljazzmetal imo (it's not j-pop i swear!)

夢中夢 (Mutyumu is I guess how it's written when it's not in crazy japanese symbols, and works well enough for googling) is a Japanese experimental postrock/avantgarde metal group. They play what I guess I'd primarily describe as some sort of classical/postrock concoction, but the primary vocals are female operatic vocals, and they occasionally breach the realm of avantgarde metal. The end result is music that is often very beautiful and incredibly epic, and blah blah I should just link a track before I scare everyone the fuck away (probably too late :B)

Aggro:
Mutyumu- ドクサの海の悪棲- Ilya
Slow buildup:
Mutyumu - 塵に過ぎない僕は塵に返る

Sup yall. Was afk for a few months but I still lurk here :)

Screen Vinyl Image - Interceptors
Genres: Shoegaze, Noise



Download:
http://www.mediafire.com/?emwqymyhnhm (VBR, best I could find :()

For listeners of... shoegaze! A Place to Bury Strangers and Skywave are pretty similar; M83 fans may also enjoy some of the stuff on this one. Only recently started exploring this stuff myself so I'm not too sure :). Kind of a dark-sounding album with a significant electronic component.

Screen Vinyl Image - Slipping Away
