To me there’s a much better understanding and use of harmony in their music than in… basically any other instrumental math rock. There’s no way that I can believe that a band like Chon are doing anything other than trying to be clever with time signatures etc, whereas Covet sound like music to me rather than an intellectual exercise in music theory.
pretty much every local band I see nowadays are trying to do the American football thing, with added finger tapping, I don’t mind it because I quite like the sound, do think Covet are a cut above though, has more exuberance to it
no, I will give you that about these tbh. I just mean the sound that’s developed that they still have in parts
Sarah McLachlan comes on sometimes when I shuffle my music cause my mum got me to add an album so a song could be used at funeral.
This isn’t the song that was used but this ones pretty good.
ahhh yeah, it’s American Football too isn’t it
again, mostly without the grace and fundamentals of those dudes
also please rtf and post some music you’re not usually into but are
quite like a bit of xasthur
I burst into this thread like YES I know exactly what I can post here, because I absolutely fucking detest [specific genre] but this one track always reminds me of a cool old job I had and it’s a bit of a bop.
Can I remember what it’s called, or find the lyrics via a Google? Can I bollocks.
we all need a bop rn
yeah, that’s fair. I can hear good stuff in Covet.
it’s fully that problem with the other stuff, mind, trying to be clever without having any real musicality.
I really like that kasey musgraves album from a year or so ago. Not really otherwise interested in country pop.
think Jlin’s amazing but don’t know much about footwork or IDM generally
I will try!
it’s difficult because I’ve been all about being amenable to any genre for so long.
I do actually rate Real Terms, as far as this stuff goes. great pop sensibility running through their stuff.
Absolutely can’t stand this electroswing load of gash*, but this I’ve always enjoyed cos it remind me when i worked in a cool cocktail bar and was in this awful clique with VIP entry to absolutely everywhere, rolling in phat tips and plenty of shagging.
(* quite partial to Caro Emerald in a sloshed-tory-at-glastonbury-3pm-in-the-sunshine way though)
also was listening to Gabber Modus Operandi and thought they were good but not even sure what Gabber is. I’m kind of a dilettante i guess so porbably a lot more stuff like that
Tbf this sounds like house music until they bring the shudders trad jazz clarinets
wow there are vocals too this is all over the shop
It’s absolute dogturd isn’t it, I love it
I like Big Thief but don’t think of them as a folk band reaally
Fleet Foxes are the only contemporary beardy folk band i still like these days. thought their last album was proper great and got a soft spot for their earlier stuff too
Given Fleet Foxes many goes over the years but their harmonies grate on me too much, much prefer some CSNY tbh
I was like “this is actually not terrible”
then I skipped a minute or so in and was like
“oh no oh no”
remember seeing someone on twitter once while I was at work, talking about going to their son’s electroswing gig and saying “oh we felt so out of place, everyone looking so cool at the electroswing gig”
there’s an alternate universe where I lost my job for immediately sending out an absolute storm of tweets from the company account saying “how fucking uncool do you have to be to feel uncool at an electro-cocking-swing gig? like literally what is wrong with you?”
