What are you listening to? (music edition)

Otomo is a boss. Wait, is the otomotone named after him? Big inspiration on Merzbow.

It seems maybe not, just coincidence.

I like Magic Dirt now, thank you.

My final answer to the most feedbackiest/sexiest guitar of all time is Boris’ Feedbacker. Same era as Magic Dirt when this live was recorded. I know it’s 25 minutes so people probably won’t watch or listen, but Wata’s guitar work makes for a life-changing 25 minutes.

Just looove it!

Is this that emo music that the youngsters are talking about? :thinking:

Napalm Death still rocking hard…


this is what i thought emo was when i was 13, and i jammed hard to it. no, this is nu-metal- same sentiment but more mainstream execution. i grew out of emo and then grew a little back into in my early 30’s, but more mid-western emo, like tigers jaw and american football

as an adult i realized we can all have a little emo, as a treat.

I was just taking the piss on that one… :grin:

ya done me there. consider me razzed :rofl:

To my ears, Linkin Park is a little too bubblegum to have the word metal associated with it.


“nu” is doing a lot of work there. is soft rock actually rock? i LOVE a good ballad, but rock? come on…

I’m guilty of listening to a little Weezer every now and then. :open_mouth:

this is far out

man, don’t even get me started. blue album is actually pretty solid, and hardly emo. like, i’ll gladly out myself as a ride or die early my chemical romance fan, or throw on blink 182’s self-titled album or enema of the state without shame or regard for others.

Their first two albums are pretty excellent.


it’s like this weird reggaeton, fat boy slim, rage against the machine hybrid. i don’t know how to engage with it without likening it to other stuff. it’s kind of cool though. like i dig the drum and bass but also reggae vibe with this track, although i don’t know if i could do a full album of it. conceptually i’m on board. i don’t know if you saw upthread about teens on tiktok subjecting themselves to mental breakdowns as a musical challenge, but that seems like something that you would find curious.

also this the caretaker project “everywhere at the end of time” is genius, although the genre as a whole makes me feel kind of sleepy. same with will basinski, a lot of that stuff, for me anyway, is purely hypnotic.

I think of it as a mix of rap, dub, dancehall and bhangra. Kind of a weird mishmash that shouldn’t work but does.


Some non-emo Weezer for you
