Coffee and WoW instead of tumblr. Sorry. Maybe soon.
Nicolas Jaar - Space is Only Noise
Burial - Street Halo EP
James Blake - James Blake (probably my favorite of the year so far)
Colin Stetson - New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges
Thurston Moore - Demolished Thoughts (WAY better than I was expecting it to be, please, all of my followers, check this one out, I couldn’t fathom how beautiful this album would be.)
Desolate - The Invisible Insurrection
Beach Fossils - What A Pleasure EP
And probably a couple of others. I need to give Fleet Foxes’ new album about 10 more listens, because I still cannot form an opinion at all after two listens. Shit be dense. If you’re into chilller dubstep/postdubstep, definitely check out James Blake, Burial and Desolate, those are all pretty great. The Colin Stetson is a bit more experimental jazzy dark ambient sort of hard to explain, but it’s quite good, if you can find it definitely pick it up.
I’ll be back to you soon tumblr. I have exams this week, then I’m back to the states. I’m planning on spending almost my entire summer researching and listening to music, and (re)reading the classics as well as some poetry books I’ve bought. Hopefully I’ll have some new interesting stuff to post, and may try to branch out my tumblr a little bit to include bits of writing and philosophy. I also have a very infrequently updated poetry tumblr if you’re interested:
Etude aux chemins de fer - Pierre Schaeffer
First piece of musique concrete ever. Went on to influence tons of genres that follow. Hooray!
CANON T3 GIVEAWAY.
I swear on everything that this isn’t a bullshit contest to gain followers. I’ve been wanting an SLR forever and I ended up getting two. One from my cousin, and the other from my mom. I was thinking about returning/selling my second one, but I wouldn’t be getting the same amount or more than what it was originally priced. I’ve already talked to my mom about me giving it away, she doesn’t mind. But besides all this, who the hell doesn’t like free stuff?
Here’s how this will work:
- You do not have to follow me. I don’t want any followers that don’t actually like my blog. I do ask of you to kindly check out my blog though. If you like it cool, if not, run along now.
- Likes do not count for anything, only reblogs will count. You can reblog this as many times as you’d like.
- Do not create any extra blogs or whatever, I will be creeping on your archives.
- Winner will be chosen like as if it were a raffle drawing.
- Winner will be contacted via ask box, so make sure that you have that open.
- This will be over on May 27th, and the winner will be announced (possibly) on the 29th.
I am doing this basically to make someone else happy and also because I accidentally deleted the other contest I was doing. Please don’t participate if you already own an SLR, but you can if you’d like I guess. I really don’t care if you live in Narnia, anyone is eligible to enter.
Here’s what the winner will get:
The camera is brand new.
- Canon T3.
- 18-35mm Kit lens.
- Wide strap.
- Interface cable.
- AV cable.
- Battery pack.
- Battery charger.
- EOS digital disc instructions.
If you think this is “stupid” of me to do or anything of that sort, than just ignore it. It’s that simple.
Q. “Why would you just giveaway an expensive camera to a stranger?”
A. TO MAKE THEM HAPPY.
Q. “How do we know you aren’t bullshitting us?”
A. To make a fake contest just for followers is stupid as fuck, plus, I have a picture of me holding both the cameras.
Golf Wang Sagan Lockhart Got A Lil Cute Edit. Swag Him Out.
He’s got a few sick things in here for sure, actually. Back feebles look great, though really any feeble looks good, but that three flip into the bank was sick for sure, even though the angle sucked.
Archangel - Burial
I cannot easily describe just how much I love this song. There aren’t quite enough words to describe vehement, nigh obscene, love.
mytearslikediamondss-deactivate said: Best Sonic Youth album?
Ahh sorry if this is an old question, I just checked my tumblr for the first time in a while. Okay, well personally, I think that Sonic Youth had a stream of perfection with EVOL, Sister, Daydream Nation and Goo. I see absolutely nothing wrong with any of those albums, and of those EVOL is probably my favorite. However, Sonic Nurse is also an excellent album. And if you want something on the noisier side, I do really like Confusion is Sex. Yet truly those four I mentioned before are their best, in my humble opinion.
Fuckin’ hell, I’ve been busy tumblr. Been barely listening to music. I’m switching my major from Global Liberal Studies (biggest joke waste of time and money shit ever) to Physics, so I’ve been doing research and getting psyched on that, and I’ve really only been listening to Janelle Monae or Odd Future. However, I’m back home for my Spring Break (which I’m kind of regretting, I get to see my sister and visit my friend in Syracuse, but I feel weird being home again.) and as a result I got my Wild Nothing shirt that I had ordered to ship to Florida and all but forgot about! Woo! Okay now goodbye I’m going to go fiddle around with my 3DS and probably just play Pokemon all day.
Seven - Tyler, The Creator of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All
Okay, fine, after hearing about them from all of my friends, having them slipped into conversations about music with acquaintances, seeing them on The Berrics…I’ve started listening to OFWGKTA. This is one of the stand out tracks from Tyler’s debut, “Bastard.”
mytearslikediamondss-deactivate said: Which Bright Eyes album do you recommend: LIFTED or I'm Wide Awake It's Morning?
Oh man, well both are amazing. Lifted is phenomenal, and really captures a true Conor Oberst sound (maybe not as much as some other albums, but Lifted is much closer to a typical Bright Eyes album in theme and sound than I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning), though IWAIM is tied for my favorite album of all time with Wilco’s Summerteeth. If it’s your first foray into Bright Eyes, download both, but give I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning a few good listens before touching Lifted. They’re both nearly equally incredible though.
Deadbeat - A Place to Bury Strangers
Some of the best in (to make a broad genre statement) modern noise rock, and that is a fact. To see them live would make me orgasmically invigorated.
Kerosene - Big Black
To whom it may concern, yet mainly Mr. Steve Albini,
For making such a beautiful, frenetic glorification that is the sound of that guitar, you have proven the reason to live. Fuck the existentialists.
Thank you <3
She’s Beyond Good and Evil - The Pop Group
Thing of every single genre of music you can. Finished? I bet you about half of them are present in this song.
