This has been in my YouTube favourites for about 5 years now; I feel like it was probably posted in a predecessor of this thread. Not sure, though, but it's really good.

There was one posted a few months back of a Japanese woman singing / rapping fast with a minimal beat or accompaniment and various shots of urban Japanese cities. I think she was wearing bright colours or a raincoat throughout. Had a quick look through the last page of /beat/ but my browser shits itself with the amount of youtube embeds on a page. Any ideas, lads?
I've somehow got it stuck in my head even though I only heard it once and it will be wrong.

I don't want this to sound like an ad but I'm batting way above average for all shades of furriner.

"What I'm feeling right now" is simply whatever is playing in my head right now. I was just posting my internal soundtrack. There are very few from after 2008 because I only listen to mixes now, a maximum of 15 times. Things don't stick in my head the same when I don't listen to them beyond the point of boredom, and listening beyond the point of boredom only made sense when I only had a set number of CDs.

I recently found out that Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin has been demolished to make way for flats. I don't know why, but it completely broke me. I started sobbing, properly sobbing, out of grief for a recording studio I've never even set foot in.
I suppose it's the death of my youth and my slide into irrelevance. When I was a young musician, a studio was something indescribably special, a place where dreams could be made, a place that you scrimped and saved just to get an overnight session in when everyone else had gone home. It was a symbol of popular music and the centrality of popular music in popular culture. Obsessives like me could map out every studio their minds, an interconnected web of demos and albums and stories and legends. Now the few studios that remain are just pantomime, an "experience day" for middle-aged businessmen, a photo backdrop for pop starlets looking to reinvent themselves as credible artists.
Windmill Lane have ostensibly moved to a new building across town, but it's a bit of a sick joke - the new studios are owned by a for-profit music production college, training wide-eyed teenagers to do a job that no longer exists. They kept the name, but the heritage is gone. The settee that Christie Moore slopped Guinness over, the fag burns on the console left by an absent-minded Phil Lynott, the carpet that soaked up Sinead O'Connor's tears, all chucked in a skip by some Polish builders. Hundreds of studios, thousands of stories, all just chucked in a fucking skip.
Still, at least the developers will make a few quid and some young professional will get to spend €300k on a two-bed flat with a Smeg fridge.

I feel you ladmate.
I ran my own studio in the early '10s. It never really took off, I didn't know back then, of course, that the time of anybody needing to pay for professional recording services were practically over for all but the most niche types of music. We thought we'd still be able to get plenty of trade from musicians hoping to get a cheap demo out and our niche would be as that budget studio all the up and coming local acts had passed through when they were brand new and skint.
Even aiming at the metal crowd where people won't settle for anything less than an authentic live drum track and a guitar cab with an SM57 in front of it, we largely found ourselves doing business as a glorified rehearsal space. Towards the end it was just a big garage we smoked weed in. I can remember the feeling of melancholy when we signed over the lease and took all our wall carpet to the tip.
Just imagine how many people have heard sounds produced in that Welsh farm, or that Canadian place that burnt down. That Swedish studio that did all the early death metal albums and now it's a community centre or some shit. It's tragic.
The music industry is dead. What's left is a husk.
|>>|| No. 12147
I guess it's testament to what professional-sounding music people can make on their laptops too which is democratising.
I did an audio tech degree from 2001-2004 and they told us there were only 1000 professional [producers? studio engineers? I've forgotten] in the whole of the UK so it wasn't great odds even back then.

We were well into the home studio boom by 2000. We'd had reasonably affordable studio gear for about a decade prior (ADAT decks, Mackie desks, the new wave of Chinese condensers) but Cubase VST came out in 1996, which really marked the beginning of the end. At about the same time, we got the first wave of digital portastudios, which killed the demo studio pretty much overnight - for the price of a week in a cheap studio, you could buy a little box with 8 tracks of digital recording and some basic effects.
I suppose it's essentially a good thing that recording was democratised, but it coincided with a lot of shitty and undemocratic changes in music. John Peel died in 2004, which was a great loss to music and marked the end of an era. Myspace and Napster were supposed to democratise the distribution of music, but the opposite really happened - unless you've got a trust fund, it's very hard to break through the noise and find an audience. A&R men started trusting follower counts more than their own judgement. Development deals died and the majors started expecting new acts to bring their own fan base. Small venues started going pay-to-play, pricing a lot of artists out of the opportunity to build an audience by playing live. The old system was unfair and arbitrary, but at least you had a chance.

I wonder if camcorder users had any inclination that one day their recordings would be turned into music videos. What's weird is we all have video recording devices in our pockets these days but I can't imagine we're leaving behind anything like the content of people just going about life.

Unfortunately when you put this much effort into the image of the performer, its audience can't reasonably be expected to judge by the musical merit alone.
I want to believe that the homecut fringe and tassels are genuine character calling back to my childhood, but instead i'm left with the niggling feeling of being played.
Just seems a bit contrived.
it's got a nice Enja vibe and i'd probably like it if i head it on the radio, first.

Both of these miss the forrest for the trees. It's a really good example of latching onto a theme without understanding why it exists.
It's a radio station. You tune in to get a familiar groove and rely on whoever DJs it to keep the groove going... well, forever. The magic exists because you can tune in whenever for hours.

I've been listening to a lot of house music while I work this week. I think it's been giving me a nice balance. Or at least it was until I put on Park Hye-jin's DJ set and started watching Dooly the Little Dinosaur with no sound or context in the background. From what I can tell it's a cartoon about one man being tormented by creatures and his baby that do nothing but fuck about and make his life miserable in the process.
She also put a new track out this week and I discovered that the pop-out player can accommodate VVS. Nice if you fancy a lass dancing in the corner of your screen. I don't think people really dance anymore and it's disappointing.

Suzanne Vega reminds me of a holiday in a Mint Green self-catering hotel in Devon that is sadly no longer standing. It was bigger than my house; reminiscent of a suite in a Las Vegas Casino, even accounting for how small I was back in 1987.

I think about this song a lot, for two reasons:
1. The main hook - "yo, pick up your mobile, it's the blackout crew who you've dialled" - surely if YOU are calling them, you won't need to pick up your mobile?
2. The verse about bluetooth-ing it around.
- It really does date the song to the time when that was a thing people did;
- The song actively encourages you to pirate it, which is interesting;
- It just seems a bit meta, a song about you sending the song around;
- "By the time this is is over you'll have it half downloaded to your mobile" - a reminder of the time when four minutes wasn't enough time to download a single song.
