🎷 Music League 5 - Billy Corgan is the greatest! - Round 14 🎷 A favourite track from 2021 part 2

Much like the “How aligned with the critical consensus” thread, this playlist has also proved that I am not aligned with the DiS either :joy:

Waleed track is gorgeous

surprised that im not finding much in here to my liking. maybe ten tracks total i was interested in on first play through.

not that i have much room to talk… im sure my track will only appeal to about three folks on here hah.

would be cool to have a graph of which users have given you the most points down to the least.


Yeah, a nice csv export of each league would be a very fine thing, indeed.

i just want to know which users i need to send bday gifts to and which ones i need hire some goons to go toilet paper their place of residence.


Slow going on this playlist due to Christmas and the arrival of a Nintendo Switch in the irony house. Am getting used to being beaten on MarioKart 8 by my children and they don’t have a driving license between them.

These were on my shortlist:


where’s the best place to ask about plans for league 6?

Just getting around to the playlist now. Gotten up to The World is a Beautiful Place track (which is mint) and wondered if I should have gone with this 18min gem:

Clearly not winning, but also not getting a pick a round spot. So now I’m just on a personal contest to beat @Icarus-Smicarus



That John Francis Flynn track reminded me of some late 80s early 90s indie song with a female vocal, the only lyric I can remember is “my daydream…” It’s possibly Pixies because it sounds a bit Kim Deal in my head. Kind of ethereal. Any ideas anyone?

This maybe?

Not that, it’s more of a textured guitar thing, a bit shoegazey I suppose. If the intro of JFF was more…smeary? Like feedback had made it hard to hear the individual notes being strummed.

I thought it might have been something off Loveless but nothing fits. Never really listened to any other shoegaze stuff.

Sorry I missed this one. I would have played this:

Heard it once on the radio and it just instantly grabbed me. None of the rest of their stuff does much for me - a bit too arch and Divine Comedy-ish for my tastes. But this bleak krautrocky indie thing really does it for me.


Well, you’re lucky, because someone chose a song from that very album!
