musical taste

favorite bands

alternative names include One Tonne Fun Baton, Gene the Machine, Best Up-and-Coming User: Community Choice,

Her Name Is Calla The Quiet Lamb
Her Name Is Calla go to great lengths to communicate deliberation and isolation. Theirs is a slower kind of post-rock, slower than the ambient derivatives even, unconcerned with the risk of appearing monotonous for the sake of atmosphere. That, might I say, is mostly nauseating, as the album goes for a tedious runtime and the aforementioned deliberation really tests your patience. All of it is intentional, for there are brilliant ideas hidden inside, but the band really makes you work for it.
The Cars Shake It Up
The lady on the cover displays more energy than this band ever does on the album.
The Cars Panorama
On 'Panorama', The Cars bring out their utmost cheese.
Goat Girl On All Fours
Goat Girl employ a very nonchalant performance technique that really only works when the band know and are 100% confident with what and how they want to play. Otherwise it becomes a slog, a prisoner of its own style. I'm afraid Goat Girl still have not found that proper level of purposeful monotony. But it's almost there, if songs like "Once Again" or "They Bite on You" are any indication.
John Carpenter Lost Themes III: Alive After Death
If you don't mind a very loose flow and a disconnect in pacing, then jump right in for some juicy synth-based soundtrack snippets you cannot help but to imagine a plot around.
Vjuga Aeternum
this is kinda boring...
Humanity's Last Breath Välde
I'll go ahead and join the "This slaps" bandwagon. Deathcore is obnoxious 85% of the time, but the rest can slap the genre all the way to greatness.

  • rage11111ro I now see you have soundoffs for everything you rated. You have no idea how much I respect this. Back to the topic. Of course I do, I actually have two, shocked on both at seing they fit -you choose which one to use, if any-: Paramaecium-Exhumed of the Earth; Terra Tenebrosa - The Purging. Thanks!

  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Yeah it is definitely not immediate, but thats why I'm trying to convince you that ur missing something just yet ;)

  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Couldn't disagree more. But I can see how listening to everything that came after it would set expectations up a certain way that would make that album seem a bit perplexing and/or underwhelming. Its very subtle unlike his approach now. I'd strongly recommend giving it the time of day with tempered expectations removed from the rest of his discog. It is to the rest of his discog as LA is to FlyLo's in a way.

  • Lord(e)Po)))ts Crazy, I think AWWWAM is an absolute classic and have pretty much consistently liked each following album less and less
