|4 Year 4 Albums|
Four years on this fucking website. Here's the four albums that have
basically defined my existence on this site.
|4||The Olivia Tremor Control|
Dusk At Cubist Castle
Dusk-at-Cubist-Castle/. This album basically made me fall in love with
Elephant 6, indie music, and The Beatles, all in one.
What makes Jun Seba (aka. Nujabes) (RIP) so amazing is not just simply
this album, but nearly everything that Jun has touched. Whether it be
Metaphorical Music or his Hydeout Production compilations, every thing that
Nujabes has made is practically gold. While the term 'jazz-hop' has been
around since nearly the dawn of hip-hop, Nujabes was the one who
perfected it. Adding a missing touch of Japanese smooth jazz, his beats
were so immaculate that even the sometime lackluster guest emcee spots
seem to sound better and acceptable. Great for any time of day, for any
mood, and is a great opener into either the realm of more hardcore-
oriented hip-hop, or even smooth jazz alone. His compilation albums are
also great gateways into discovering artists and musicians that follow the
same ethos as Jun, yet are tragically overlooked.
What makes this album so great in my book is how restrained it feels.
Where I (One) just seemed to be mostly a chaotic hardcore mess, II feels
more held back, more brooding and indomitable. While I wouldn't go so far
as to call II more mainstreamed, it is definitely a more streamlined sound.
Yet for all its accessibly, there's a hint of inaccessibility found on II. Some
factor that invites even the casual listener in yet, in the end, winds up
throwing the proverbial middle finger up right when you're about to become
comfortable with each track. But every facet of this album is compounded
by the overall feeling of evilness found on this track, as II is undoubtedly
the most evil album that Cursed, and their past projects, have ever done.
