Pangea's Beastly discoveries

So i did this gimmick thing in the monthly causal convo thread where each user could pick a soulanimal that would be represented by an album. I decided to listen to them all at some point, since a lot of them aren't all that well known, and why not give them some love? Anyway the casual convo thread will be deleted tommorow and I don't want all this work go to waste, so hereby I present to you these beastly albums
1Lesnevsky
Isopod


Techno/Club Music
2012
Russia
Selected track: Fly Guitar https://soundcloud.com/clubstarsdigital/lesnevsky-fly-guitar

Album with a big sound. Lesnevsky brings us loud, pulsing beats that were made for the club

Pangea's take: Had a good time with this. It does feel fairly generic, but it is varied enough to not get boring. 3.0+
24 Bonjour's Parties
Okapi Horn


Chamber Pop/Psychadelic Pop
2010
Japan
Selected Track: Omicron https://4bon.bandcamp.com/track/omicron

7 member band from Tokyo, that create a sound as big as their line-up would suggest, but that still manages to be intimate. It's maximalist, throwing in numerous of instruments, but the ambience it creates within is warm. Ars wrote a review, please check it out! https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/82818/4-Bonjours-Parties-Okapi-Horn/

Pangea's take: This is super lovely and mostly what inspired me to listen to all of these albums. 4.5
3Tyler, the creator
Flower Boy


Hip Hop/Neo Soul
2017
United States
Selected Track: See You Again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGgcC5xg9YI

Hip hop with strong soul influences. The production especially really brings a lot of soul into Tyler's introrespective lyrics.

Pangea's take: I definitely get the appeal for this, the production is gorgeous, but overall is not quite for me. I found myself craving the hooks i found in IGOR. 3.0
4Mikhail Lezin
Capybara


Drone/Noise
2016
Russia
Capybara

A single 45 minute track of looping noise. There's a bit of variation within the track, but is mostly a loop of noise.

Pangea's take: it wasn't as assaulting to my ears as anticipated, but i did get insanely bored about half-way through. 1.5
5The Format
Dog Problems


Indie Pop/Power Pop
2006
United States
Selected Track: The Compromise https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZ2ZrnsDAkQ

Before forming the succesful group fun. was Nate Ruess a duo with Sam Means with the format. This is stylistically not all that different from the first fun. album, summer-y pop with lots bells and whistles attached to it.

Pangeas take: I don't like this nearly as much as the first fun. album, instrumentally it's not as interesting. But this is still a fun time. 3+
6Cue and See
Dirty Crocodile


Jungle
2019
Canada
Selected track: QNC Murda https://soundcloud.com/in-da-jungle-audio/cue-see-feat-mc-ogami-qnc?in=in-da-jungle-audio/sets/cue-see-dirty-crocodile

Ready to rave? Cue & See are with some super energetic and chaotic jungle. It's a really short ep of about 5 minutes, so if you might dig!

PangeĆ”'s take: I didn't like this at all, way too chaotic for me. I found it to be quite obnoxious. 2-
7The Prodigy
The Day Is My Enemy


Big Beat
2015
United Kingdom
Selected Track: Nasty https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB_nKpEkILs

And so is subtlety, Electronic icons release this aggresive rave of an album.full of loud beats and chaotic sounds.

Pangea's take: Another album i found to be absolutely obnoxious. Reminds of music they play in Dutch fun fairs, just constantly screaming for attention. It gets really tiresome of a 1 hour of run time. 2.0
8Gentle Giant
Octopus


Proggresive Rock/Chamber
1972
United Kingdom
Selected track: Think of Me With Kindness https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z833vvmbKGM

A really playful & quirky approach to prog. Gentle GIant decide to for shorter songs and quickly moving from idea to idea.

Pangea's take: Yeah, I love this. It's so joyful with so many nice ideas. It's somewhat refreshing to have prog that doesn't take itself too seriously. 4+
9Chill Bump
The Loop


Hip Hop
2012
France
Selected track: Home Sweet Home https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_HPXeGWL6I

Cheerful and, well, chill hip hop. It has energetic production and uses a lot of samples. It's a relatively short ep (18 minutes) with 2 dexbro 5s, so def worth a check

Pangea's take: This is a lot of fun with a lot replay. I have been listening to Home Sweet Home daily for about a week. 4.0-
10Emarosa
Versus


Post Hardcore/Alt Rock
2014
United States
Selected track: People Like Me, We Just Don't Play https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA-EiQPLDFI

Melodic alternative rock with a post-hardcore edge

Pangea's take: I want my post-hardcore to have atleast a little bit of an edge. This is just soft. Really can't stand these types of vocals. 2.5-
11Porcupine (US)
Porcupine


Jazz
1989
United States
Selected track: Slider Inside https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vAfl110t5zA

Could only find audio for this single track. It's upbeat, good-vibes jazz. You can definitely tell it's from the 80s as well.

Pangea's take: I enjoy the track quite a bit. Just a really nice feel good song. The sax (?) is so 80s too, love it.
12PET records
The Complete Cockatiel Training Album


Goes beyond music
1980
United States
It has a track called "Hey Good Lookin', I Love You, Want To Play With Me?"

Can't find audio for this online (atleast not from non-shady looking websites). I don't know if these are tracks sang/spoken by humans to birds or that the birds are speaking/singing themself on record, but either way it sounds like a masterpiece. This is 5/5 unil proven otherwise
13Kvelertak
Kvelertak


Black N' Roll
2010
Norway
Selected track: Sultans of Satan https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQHlHpavkXw

A really interesting combination of Black Metal, hardcore punk & rock n' rolll. Super high energy with lots riffs and screaming.

Pangea's take: This is super fun. I first checked it a couple of months ago and it has been in constant rotation ever since. Unfortunaly, they haven't been able to capture the same magic in their following releases, but that's okay cause i think i can jam this until eternity. 4.5+
14The Beach Boys
Pet Sounds


Baroque Pop/Psychadelic Pop
1966
United States
Selected track: Caroline, No https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoqYQdregRI

I probably don't need to tell most of you that this is an incredibly important and great album, but if you haven't done so, definitely listen!
