Whenever I listen to music, the way I visualize it always plays a big role. My mind usually
generates a color to sort of match the atmosphere of the record and it always impacts the way I
listen. Props to sniper for the list idea.
Pink. The harsh, yet airy electronics build up a ridiculously dense atmosphere similar to the fuzzyness of
Dull blue. The guitars are really light and many of the songs sort of build quietly, sometimes even getting
lost in the eclectic atmosphere

Frances The Mute
Bold, dark red. The sprawling cinematic mess of this record triggers an epic, brooding sound that shines
boldly and is always dense.
The Blue Notebooks
Somber dark blue. The strings and main motifs generate the sad sound, with electronics and trickling
ambience providing a dark atmosphere that makes this record.
The Glow pt.2
Pale yellow. The lo-fi, multi-tracked sound to this record creates a sparse, light atmosphere that gently
presents the dark songwriting of phil elvrum.
Leaves Turn Inside You
Dark Green. This album has an impersonal, yet thick character that can be disturbing but never fully lets go.
Meat Puppets II
A mix of autumn colors, particularly orange and brown. The countryish, agreeable minimalism of this
album reminds me of autumn, particularly "plateau".
Multi-colored. Just ridiculous build-ups that culminate in lovable communal sing-a-alongs and quirky
electronics, a sound that hits home but always humors. Just a sweeping, colorful album.
|fixing the album art. i know the concept is weird, but right down your thoughts if you approach music somewhat like moi.|
also I won't be deleting comments on my list.
|This is pretty cool. I agree with 7 and now I'm gonna bust that out today.|
|i'm pretty sure 7 was the first thing i rated and commented on on sputnik|
|never really pictured colours, my mind creates paintings or pictures to match the atmosphere of the music|
|i used to picture exactly the album cover, but while listening I tend to forget the specifics of the album cover and the visual aspects become more abstract over time for me.|
|I usually imagine what it would be like to be at one of their shows. |
|accomplice: i usually get that with more hardcore sort of bands.|
