@Solea What are you listening to these days? I'm digging John Zorn's Painkiller project on vinyl. I've also been listening to earlier Deathprod stuff on Spotify, do you think you will explore his back catalogue as well?

@Solea Thanks, I'll be sure to pick up John Zorn's split with Napalm Death. Did he do anything else with them?

Any other Nels Cline fans on here? Besides Dirty Baby, the Andrew Hill album, Lovers, Currents, Constellations, the John Coltrane covers album and Destroy All Nels Cline, what are the best albums from his diverse catalog? (Vinyl is preferable.)

Also, can anyone recommend any other free jazz guitarists? (I like Sonny Sharrock and Otomo Yoshihide besides him.)

@DonJorginho Great taste. Radiohead and Frank Ocean are among my favorite artists.

Have you ever listened to FKA twigs, I'd argue it's a bit in between of those two.

DonJorginho

@Kidfried OMG YES I adore her music! MAGDALENE is one of my favourite albums of the year.

And Frank and Radiohead definitely make my top 5 for sure, what else you into?

I am a huge Suffocation fan, I want to know are any of their post-Doug Cerrito albums worth buying? Edit: Recently I've been listening to a lot of non-metal stuff. Gary Clark Jr. is excellent.

Edit: I have now more or less given up on rock and it's related sub-genres altogether, save for the sound of the electric guitar on some jazz recordings. Has anyone else made a complete left-turn and sacrificed the music of their yesteryear for something new and intriguing?

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

DonJorginho

@nessisonett My honourable mentions were TPAB, Magdalene, 21 A Million, Multilove and Anti.

Your list is great, respect the C418 Soundtrack as that is amazing.

DonJorginho

Kidfried

Great lists so far. I'm working on one, but I find it hella difficult to be honest.

LN78

@nessisonett I agree, but so as not to further derail the movie topic better to move over here. I actually like a lot of the b-side stuff on "The Masterplan" even more.

@LN78 Never been a big fan of Oasis but Definitely Maybe is a great album. WTSMG has a few truly great songs but it’s not as consistent. I’m more of a Pulp and Blur fan when it comes to Britpop but it’s not exactly the most coherent genre considering those 3 bands aren’t massively similar other than the fact they’re English.

LN78

@nessisonett As you say it's less of a genre and more of an era. I like a lot of the music from that time (big fan of "Modern Life is Rubbish") but I'm more into the earlier post-punk stuff like Jesus and Mary Chain, Joy Division,PIL and so on. A lot of the Creation and Factory output was ace,though.

@DonJorginho I really do not listen to enough albums to justify putting together a top 10, but I can say that my personal favourite would be Jessie J's R.O.S.E. I doubt I'll find any people who share the same view here, considering it appears everyone's music tastes are dramatically different than mine! I suppose female pop is not the norm here, haha. Just an incredible album with all memorable songs that fit together really well. Great themes throughout with top notch production and vocals. It's definitely the album I've listened to that I come back to most often.

nessisonett

@Tjuz Female pop’s perfectly acceptable, Grimes, FKA Twigs, Lana Del Rey etc. I just don’t think I’d give a Jessie J album a go because I still remember her music from back in the day, which is rather bad of me. Maybe I’ll like it, eh?

Tjuz

@nessisonett That's understandable. I personally love her music from back in the day as well, but in all fairness, the album R.O.S.E. is entirely different. It's with a new label and everything, and even touches on the struggles she had with her old label to make the music she really wanted to make. It's very much R&B rather than the pop she's known for, and unlike her old music, it feels like it's coming straight from the heart. I'd recommend giving it a shot since it's so different! You might be able to enjoy her new sound if you enjoy simplistic production with a focus on vocals.

Did my own edit of one of my favourite Kanye leaks, Cash To Burn

Changes:

  • Mixing Changes
  • Rearranged how the song is laid out
  • Incorporated parts of each version to leak so far
  • Added some little bits to the instrumental to flesh it out

Let me know what you think! I do a lot of these edits and do my own beats so might post more in future.
