Oh BTW to clarify, this thread was supposed to be music that is hard to listen to at first but then is less hard.

Joanna Newsom was like that for me. I guess I should phrase that in the form of an album: Ys.

I didn't like Sunset Rubdown's Random Spirit Lover for about the first 10 times I listened to it, but now they are probably my second favorite band and I love all their albums.

Hi Pants,

Yes, yes I am. Glad you like the... collections!


Oh man I am pretty stoked to listen to some of these challenging music selections. And to continue to use the word stoked.

That was great! I was initially intimidated by the multiple 10 minute plus track lengths, but it worked fine for me. Her voice is a bit annoying (kind of Bjork-y sometimes?) but I got to like it a lot... very beautiful actually.

Plus, now looking at the wikipedia page, this album strokes every pretentious bone in my body:

-Orchestrated and produced by Van Dyke Parks... legendary poet/musician involved in the beach boys Smile and numerous other works. I like his album Song Cycle which is kind of reminiscent of this

-Harp and vocals recorded by Steve Albini, of previously mentioned Big Black and Slint... he has also recorded numerous amazing albums. (He is also an enormous douchebag.)

-Mixed by Jim O'Rourke, another fine musician and temporary member of Sonic Youth

-Backing vocals by Bill Callahan, who recorded under the name Smog for many years. He has like 20 albums or something? The early ones were kind of noise rock-y but lately they are quite the opposite. I like Supper by Smog and Rough Travel for a Rare Trade under his real name.



Is this a good post? Is it gushing enough? Should I embarrass myself more next time? :feper:

I liked this too but not as gushingly. Reminded me of Arcade Fire kind of? But more complex. I will definitely listen to it again.

Unlike Breast Meat :bbq:

Arcade Fire is the opposite for me. I like them less every time I hear them. :bush:

OK, I listened to the Holy Fuck album finally and,

what a relief!

I thought it was pretty good, but it didn't feel particularly essential or anything. I don't think that I will probably listen to it again.

I was worried that I would really love it (I think the concept is pretty cool), and then I would have to keep listening to a band named Holy Fuck.

My mind was all formulating worst case scenarios involving the wrong people discovering my Holy Fuck collection.

I'm showing my little sister a youtube video of a snapping turtle biting a stick, and she sees Holy Fuck highlighted on my media player and asks what fuck means, and then keeps on asking followup questions that require me to explain sex.

I'm too cheap to get even a DJ for my wedding reception, so I just hook up an iPod to a sound system. I decide to throw a couple of my favorite Holy Fuck tracks on the playlist because I think they'd be pretty cool to dance to. I accidentally leave on the iPod feature where it audibly announces the track and artist names. Grandparents are so shocked that they write me out of the will.

Pastor Mike's car breaks down, and I just happen to drive by and decide to give him a ride. He sees a Holy Fuck CD I burned, and silently decides to pray for me.

:minivan:

I just can't handle the pressure of listening to a band called Holy Fuck.

It is a filter that was created pretty much only for the purpose of retroactively screwing with this thread.

Filters around here are pretty fluid, and seem to be added and removed based mostly on whims.

The word being filtered here begins with F, if that helps.

You could refer to them as Holy Feck instead.

i think what you should do is make yourself a cd, but just change the band's name to Holy Mackerel on your itunes/cdr. problem solved.

and i don't do this often (that is a lie. i do this all the time.) but i really think this video is what renders HF essential listening
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhaRkWfaq10

i guarantee you that it is awesome and completely work safe.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gZDm8oKmAg

and if you like noisy noise with a rocking edge that rocks, listen to this band, perhaps.

ok, i've just decided to start up like, a sampler of samplings for you to sample.

up first, we got some mayer hawthorne. mayer's reppin' that old 60s sound better than anyone else right now. we're talking jams to make love to your old lady to. awwwwww yeah

"maybe so, maybe no" - mayer hawthorne
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mpfcydeSGeo

on the same tip, we have dam-funk. though dam-funk does represent more of the 70s sound, he does have a lot of that motown influence if that's what you're craving (which to be honest, you probably aren't but)

i'll be honest. too much dam-funk IS too much, but one or two of his jams gets the mood just right.

"hood pass intact" - dam-funk
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgQKQ5-BwWQ

here's an example of a band that i found solely through the internet and wouldn't have found them otherwise. but they're really, really good. honest to goodness good. indie pop influenced heavily by my bloody valentine and nintendo. now, on the surface that sounds like a terrible combination, but the way they pull it off, it really, honestly works. so i'm posting 2 songs because i want you to get a better view of what sort of stuff they have out there. definitely worth a listen.

"sky ghosts" - the depreciation guild
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SKf2pgeVVI

"nautilus" - the depreciation guild
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tQm3-iEGIc

moving forward...

if you paid any attention to the blogosphere over the past two years or so, you have probably heard about the meteoric rise and subsequent fall of the genre known as chillwave. a genre so one note that most artists have failed to sustain themselves beyond single songs. however, of those artists who managed to ride the wave (the CHILL wave ha ha ha) and do his best to escape from it is washed out, probably the only noteworthy artist from that genre. anyway, this song isn't particularly amazing, but it does have a nice FEEL to it which makes for great background music.

"feel it all around" - washed out
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DkslcOhytU

i will endeavour to bring you newer, less hipster stuff in the future, but i just think this song's p. nice.

Guys, this thread needs more Jandek, IMO

"To anyone who says that Jandek is "boring" or "hipster music". Bare in mind that not everyone enjoys the same things. This music is down right gritty and ugly... and some people look for this in music, out of the need for something new. This is VERY different, it's strange and the whole mystery behind Jandek's career only adds to the intrigue. He is the Darger, the Wolfli of rock. An outsider, naive yet unique... the darker, uglier cousin of The Shaggs. Pretentious has nothing to do with this."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5hJ8LFMCbI

PRETENTIOUS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS

man I totally forgot about Jandek since about 2001 but looks like the dude, he's still rocking.

:tbag: :tbag: :tbag: :tbag: :tbag: :tbag: :tbag: :tbag: :tbag: :tbag: :tbag: :tbag:

This thread is now about artists, albums, and songs with swears in their names.

Hey, good news everyone! I have listened to the radio a lot lately (the local public radio station that is for countercultural elitists or whatever), and have actually enjoyed the experience of listening to music on several occasions.

Some of the music that I have listened to has even been reasonably new, and by bands that do not have Jack White in them.
