New thread, old concept. Post what songs you are enjoying at the moment.
I thought I would go with something that has nice visuals seeing as how we're going to be looking at this for a year.

Getting back into pop-punk. I have a baby face and am below average height so despite being about 10 years out of acceptable ages to like pop punk I can still blend in at shows.

French is such a brilliant language for folk music. Maybe if my first French teacher wasn't a cunt who ended up getting arrested for stealing school computers, I'd understand the lyrics a bit better.

I still prefer the Dark Side of Phobos album but some of this is catchy and I like how all the monsters in the video are modern versions of the ones from original doom.

This makes me happy. Is there genre for these sorts of tunes?

I don't know about strict genre name, but it sounds like the soundtrack to every hipster start up companies kickstarter.

I wish all weekends were 3 day long so I could spend my Sundays chilling after a big Sunday roast instead of thinking about ironing.
Bubblegum pop although its quite a bit more shameless than most stuff and more electronic. It sounds allot like how the Sims music takes normal songs and then knocks everything up a tone, that actually matches the vibe totally.

Some music is stuck in me head. It goes like DIIIDIIDIII DI DI DI DI DADIIDIDIIDI DIIDIDIIDIDIIDIIII
And then the trumpets follow the same melody.

This is fucking great. Fucking love it. Post more please.
Nice discovery, but the one I meant was this.
Also, I realised that others, outside my head, can't hear the same beat I'm hearing in my head.

Perhaps then, you could tell us what Eye Two means. Or would you prefer not to explain it?

Caution as it features 1970s full frontal nudity. You could say it belongs in the naughty video thread but its not like that - just a naked lady at the beach with a very 1970s body.
Well the version I was listening to at the time was from the Dave Pike 'Jazz for the Jet Set' record:
You'll recognize the first track but it goes on in a style you might enjoy. The channel Dr. Hofmann's Electric Kool-Aid Party! is worth checking out in general as he uploads allot of records from the era, youtube recommendations also tend to work due to the obscurity.

I like silly music like this. It reminds me of watching Just For Laughs pranks from when I was 8-ish. Wish I could find a collection of all those musics.

I can't really work out if I love Ed Sciss's perfectly grotesque lyrical content or Lamplighter's spot-on moody, ketted out beats and production more. Either way their match is made in my heaven and I never want them to divorce.

What do you lads think about Blue Man Group, pretty good or shit blues singers?
I just watched the NPR performance anyway and its fun as fuck at the (8.00) onwards mark. Can't help but feel though that this would've blown my mind so much more in the year 2000.

Not really my bag, but I'm glad they're doing it. The Tiny Desk Concerts are lousy with people going through the motions, performing timid and mediocre music. The world has more than enough bearded men in checked shirts and girls in flowery dresses singing dreary pseudo-folk. Say what you like about the Blue Man Group, but they're certainly not boring and you certainly can't knock them for lack of effort.
|>>|| No. 10247
They remind me of the "yip yip" Sesame Street martians. If they were humanoid and blue. The music and performance are integral to one another, a sound track of a Blue Man Group concert would be a bit dull, but the acting expressing both a wonder at the sound they create as well as a maniacally driven need to produce it makes it really rather enjoyable.

Do you ever find yourself genuinely enjoying something after listening to it ironically?

I sometimes wonder if I'm going about the whole music thing wrong after seeing posts like his. Maybe I should be going round every website there is, posting about how I will starve if people don't buy my single. Instead I just upload it to youtube and don't even think about charging for it.
Mind you he said he was a "promoter". I'm tempted to message the musician he's promoting and telling him that the guy is trying to sell his music on sympathy rather than actual tunefulness.
|>>|| No. 10262
The guy broke the cardinal sin, by saying they were a promoter.
Most of the time online promotion on a community site is done by pretending that you aren't the person selling the product, you are a random person who discovered a cool new thing, or has a funny story to tell involving said thing, or name dropping in something unrelated/ associate it with something else that is popular, forcing a meme ('netflix and chill' was probably the product of many long hours in a very cynical marking meeting), start a controversy about how people are sexist against you and that's the only reason people think your product is shit, or with some misdirection about how someone is trying to copyright take down your content (people love hating 'those' evil companies) and then 'just as an after thought' promote said taken down music.
If you actually want to promote your music online, be a 2 faced manipulative fuck, people will give you more time of day then if you have the honesty to say 'I am promoting this'.
|>>|| No. 10263
I think the only way you can seriously suggest Netflix and chill didn't develop organically is if you've never been invited for Netflix and chill. Poor lad.

There's a great article in the 2600 Autumn issue about how to Google bomb/force a viral video. I'd share it but that might not be wise. I recommend you pick up a copy.

Eh, I can't be fucked with the whole promotions thing. I don't even want to charge for my music - I think musicians should only get paid for live performances. I've downloaded so much free music over the years that I can't take any other stance really, and the vast majority of gigs I go to are a result of pirating the artist's music. All I want is to be listened to.

I'm actually fairly aware of SEO and all that gubbins. I use it on other channels (got a youtube clickbait channel). It would feel dirty using those tactics on my music though, I feel like those different aspects of myself should be compartnebtalised.
I know we should never take anything on the web as a permanent record (unless we don't want it to be of course) but just being able to throw my stuff up on the web for anyone to hear, anywhere in the world is wonderful, and I think youtube will be around for a good few years, and eventually data storage/transfer speed will get so ridiculously small that people could have all of youtube on a USB stick backed up the way you can do with wikipedia these days. Throwing stuff out into the web that way feels like there's a fair to middling chance that its existence will survive my death.
Knowing that any music I recorded could be listened to after my death is far, far more important to me than actually promoting it.

Of course because the absolute last thing the marketing department want is for people to associate using their product with getting laid.

Frankly I'm still surprised that various large companies haven't put out even more risqué advertising campaigns on the internet where there are no censors as you have on TV.

What do you think the chances are that Bowie secretly did the vocals to Scottish 1970s punk band Fk9?

Classic pop if you want. The label is a chameleon.

Classic or traditional pop. It was closely related to swing.

Sam Stone was alone
When he popped his last balloon,
Climbing walls while sitting in a chair.
Well, he played his last request,
While the room smelled just like death,
With an overdose hovering in the air.
But life had lost it’s fun,
There was nothing to be done,
But trade his house that he bought on the GI bill,
For a flag-draped casket on a local hero’s hill.
