I've been relistening to my Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack (I'm actually pretty eclectic with music but this is just now in the moment):

I know it's sappy as heck, but I like it. I can only hope someday I find someone for whom the words ring true.

ANOTHER THOUGHT ON NEW RADIOHEAD ALBUM: It makes sense now that I'm listening to it as a breakup album; didn't realize Thom had split with his partner. The whole listless stripped-down vibe works with context.

SECOND (facetious edit: facetious is not the word I meant, dude is very attractive, more "joking") THOUGHT: Hot damn, Thom Yorke is single for the first time since I was 6 years old, editing my celebrity hall pass list Wink wink nudge nudg

THIRD THOUGHT: This is such a sexy slow jam

Weeereeelll! I'm not sure if you're still into Die Antwoord or nah after seeing their shitty live set but they've got a mixtape coming out tomorrow titled Suck on This. But they released some bomb fucking tracks from it on SoundCloud like "Gucci Coochie" (also serious NSFW cover for the single). I dunno, I dig it.

EDIT: The 1980s synth pop binge continues with more tracks found off Pandora, this time I've fallen for Yazoo, it's just... sooo... cyberpunk. I luuuurve it. Run in circles flail

HMMM. Okay, Gucci Coochie is a pretty tasty track, appreciating the lyrical throwback to "designer vaginas" in XPEN$IV $HIT. Grin

Dazed and Confused is a weird track, feels super 1999 to me (remember that moment when, like, everyone was trying to make psychedelic reggae-rap for white kids happen? I guess you were a little kid at the time, but I swear this was going on when I was in middle school Razz) but I think I might come around to it, Ninja's got a nice flow on it. Bum Bum is chill and not bad, but where is the hook? Give me a hook y'all.

Is it really?! I'll be honest, I was too entranced by the cover, the wall of sound and Dita's amazingly whispy voice to actually notice lol.

Now that you mention Dazed and Confused feels 1999, yeah you're kinda right. I was about 7 y/o when that shit was being rolled out and the closest frame of reference I got to psychedelic reggae-rap would be something like Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz frp, 2001 so, you're not completely off base there. Razz Anyway, Bum Bum is too slow for me and not like Die Antwoord at all. It's cool, but definitely different. My favorite track has absolutely got to be Gucci Coochie though to steal a line from Blades of Glory, "It's provocative... gets the people going!" ;D

With the recent (read: less than 2 weeks ago as of this post) release of a game called Tadpole Treble, I have gotten hooked not just on the game but on one song in particular: Thunder Creek.

Aiight Mikey tell me if I'm nuts here, but a disturbing realization: I thought I'd heard the hook in the chorus of Gucci Coochie somewhere, and I finally remembered which song I was thinking of: Dookoom, I Want You (just a clip, but you can hear that real similar hook). Note that Dookoom is another rap group from Cape Town, so it's pretty damn likely DA has heard this track. Did they just straight up lift that synth riff? I know it's just like a 3-note house progression and there can only be so many of those, but FFS it's awfully close.  Suspect If they're just stealing shit from other SA rappers now, I'm done with them.

Clark, you are such a beautiful composer, and no one except your spiritual brother Aphex Twin does dischord as well as you. What a gorgeous album Happy tears

Hey Werel! I'm sorry I took so long to reply! I actually hadn't listened to the album until yesterday, and so far I like the empty? vibes but, yeah, I agree that it does get a bit snoozy.
I liked that video too! I'm probably going to say a really silly thing, but since Thom goes through a lot of different settings in it and there are a lot of shifts in colour and atmosphere I liked imagining how each place felt as I watched the video, ending with the fire inside the cave. Also, rofl at Thom's mystical eye! I have to say his face at the end creeped me out a bit...

I'm glad you liked the track! I think they're named after a Roland drum machine, but one of their most well-known tracks is actually called "Pacific" so maybe there's a connection (hopefully one not involving lobster tans?!)

Anyway, I've been listening to My Parents' Favorite Music a lot lately. I guess certain kinds of hip-hop don't have the most cred but it's been really important for me to find out that there's this nerdy trans girl out there making nerdy music I can totally relate to. So much that I've actually spent this past week sampling old videogames?!



P.S. Clark! You've got the best musical taste ever Grin

P.S.2: Mikey: that Yazoo track is awesome. What do you think about The Human League's first album? It doesn't sound like Yazoo at all but I've always liked its futuristic, sci-fi, slightly Ballardian vibe, since you mention cyberpunk...

By the same guys as what did Thunder Creek, here is a rather light and amusing song about pausing your video games.

While Simpsonwave started out as a joke more or less... it's actually pretty addicting and very cool and very relaxing. I may have to acquire a bunch of this stuff for this summer...

This song includes like a minute-long spoken list of people and things that should be thrown off a cliff, and all of them make me laugh and miss grouchy Detroit scenesters.

Throw 'em from the rock!:

Greedy bastards
Rank amateur professionals
Emotional cripples
Gluten fascists
Alt-weekly types
Human [dieldrin?]
Envious cowards
Envious associates
Internet personas
Smug urban settlers
[Ants in a bathtub?]
[Crucibles of smog?]
Unformed skulls
Neon bands on laptops
Recent memories
[Unweird?] beards
Rich crusties
Adults dressed as children
Do-nothing know-it-alls
What democracy looks like
Upper-class slummers
[Texts as new?] literature
Shot-counters
[Last match as a fumble?]
Credit card users
Pain-free catheters
Most bands ever
Terrible bartenders

I don't know why I didn't see this earlier.

But to answer your question, hmmmm... I dunno, it's possible.

Mikey's Questionable and Amateur Musician Opinion: It's possible that Die Antwoord was 'influenced' by "I Want You" similar to how The Doors were influenced by "Papa's got a Brand New Bag" and "What I'd Say". Meaning, you can definitely hear that they're the same notes (or similar-ish notes that are close together) but are arranged very differently and are timed also very differently. I actually tried playing both riffs on my guitar (by ear, humble-brag~) and I think the beats are near identical, I also wanna say that perhaps both songs are in the same F key (again, I'm not a musician). Though they do share one note, F♯/G♭. Die Antwoord's riff uses (from me listening and plotting out the notes on guitar) reads as F, F♯/G♭, A; whereas Dookoom's riff by listening to it is F♯/G♭, G, A♯/B♭.

Again, I'm not an expert but they're very similarish sounding notes when clumped together like that, so it's easy to mistake them for one another. Or maybe they did rip-off Dookoom, I dunno. Only Ninja and Yolandi will know. Razz

Though I think the sample kings will always be Daft Punk, they sample, but they make completely original music outta those samples.

Litterature, I'm sorry I didn't reply earlier! D:

I'm listening to Reproduction now and woah, holy shit, that first track is... something else, definitely ahead of it's time. Though I think I get Nintendo vibes from some of the tracks, like higher fidelity/cleaner 8-bit music. Razz Yeah, very rave-y, seriously sci-fi sounding and definitely reminiscent of cyberpunk stuff. Since I'm not 100% familiar with a lot of early synth/electropop music I would have thought Reproduction was some early mellow Lazerhawk or underground Kavinsky tapes. I like what I'm hearing! Shiny/thrilled Though, tbh with you, I enjoy electronic instrumentals more, the human voice kinda breaks the flow of the music, but provides a nice contrast I guess. IZ GUUD. Grin

Daaaamn Mikey, I wasn't expecting a legit musical analysis with notation, props to you for incredible thoroughness Laughing Given the differences, I'll chalk it up to "inspiration" rather than "flagrant theft." Wink

You're very welcome and thanks. :3 Hopefully the disclaimers will clear up any inaccuracies that may pop-up as corrections from real musicians doing legit fact checking. Trust me if I had a piano and memorized all the notes, I'd double-check using that versus my guitar. Razz

To this day I still can't read music, sadly. Run in circles flail

Don't worry! I'm utter pants at replying on time too :<

Glad you liked the album! Yeah, I agree Phil Oakey's voice is a bit of an acquired taste, but personally I do like it! You might also like John Foxx's Metamatic, which is in a similar Nintendo vein, although his voice can get a bit grating. The Units also have some nice tracks, but the acoustic drumming sort of detracts from the otherwise very futuristic sound, so the end product is a bit like a less tongue-in-cheek version of Devo's Duty Now for the Future album. I wonder if you might like late-80's EBM, like Front 242 or Front Line Assembly. It's dancier stuff and less chippy-sounding, but some of it is very obviously inspired in actual cyberpunk works!
If you're interested in instrumentals, maybe you might like some of the more recent Detroit electro. Again, it's dancier stuff, but you might like some of Gerald Donald's less hardcore aliases, such as Arpanet or Japanese Telecom.

I'll leave a bunch of tracks here! Hope something catches your attention!

Ooooh I'll have to check em' out laater then. Thanks! Shiny/thrilled

And now for some tunes that popped up on my Black Sabbath Pandora station that I first heard when I was 16... yeah, I really have a knack for being into old heavy metal from before I was born.
