Fuck it: this shit is getting cataloged.
So I go on /mu/ directly after posting (see previous post) and this fucking comes up! Mashup Hip-Hop/Rap. I'm not a fan, but the kids like it.
"Psychedelic Noise Punk". So weird it's kinda interesting.
Thanks to Joyce for showing me this guy: Indie Folk is the name of the game here. This is a preview of his upcoming album Dishes. Have a listen!
He has a couple of albums out for free on Bandcamp: have a listen!
Acoustic Emo. Pretty: comes from William Bonney, apparently.
Electroswing. This is just below Caravan Palace: some of the best stuff I've heard in a long time. Keeps you interested.
Didn't realise this was up for free download. This is what got me into Post Rock. A great EP.
I got another submission: remember to include info about yourself/your project, as it'll probably be better than the shitty description I can muster up to evaluate an artist.
"...A 10 track compilation of tracks that I've produced, mostly tracks that other artists appear on (as i produced the track for their own release) with some instrumentals and 2 remixes. It's pretty much all hip hop besides some electronic elements in some tracks, and a combination of tracks involving samples and some completely original.
It features upcoming and underground artists like rappers Sey and A Problem Like Maria and remixes of artists Labrinth and Ja Rule and some of my favourite beats I produced that appeared on old beattapes. The album is a free download.
The album/mixtape is available for streaming and download here: http://newdarkage.bandcamp.com/album/producing
I uploaded my favourite track from the album to soundcloud for streaming/embedding, this might be what you want to check out first: http://soundcloud.com/newdarkage/juice " - David.
2nd wave Post Rock/Experimental rock with spoken vocals. Earlier work worships Slint, but they have developed a sound that surpasses them (in my opinion: don't get pissy). This isn't their best work, but it's great insight into the band and their general style.

The sad thing is, it's actually a good album, despite the incredibly pretentious vibe it gives off. Experimental electronic/3deep5u.
Sorry it's been so long since I reviewed, guys. Life got in the way and stuff. Nevertheless, today I came across this album, I just had to tell you about. May I present to you...
Well this is an amazing piece of music. I refrain from giving it a genre due to the fact that it derives from so many places. The nearest I would go is "Progressive Electronica". This epic piece of music takes you on a journey through uncharted territories, both in terms of imagery and the music itself.
What if an excessive British stereotype met Hip-Hop and steampunk technology? Well, here you have it. Insightful lyrics such as
"And a drip for my urges might verge on perverted
But for earthy brown tea, I'm certain it's worth it!
With Sherpas who work herds and use a fresh fountain
I've discerned brews from Peruvian mountains"
make this excellent album a perfect example of funny-as-fuck Chap-Hop.
Two waterproof microphones were placed in a roughly 10" x 10" block of ice and the thawing process was recorded.
Pop Punk with a little twinkliness. Lots of "feels", if you will.
Emocore. The demo is Midwestern Emo. I really like this stuff.
Screamo/Emotive Hardcore. A little twinkly in places.
Emotive Hardcore/Post Hardcore. Not bad... very atmospheric; almost to the point where you'd think they were into Post Rock.
"The Crystal World is Locrian's essential release, finding the band creating a sound all of their own. A sound that evades simplistic analogies to black metal, power-electronics, noise, or other categories. This is the album that will stun fans of the bands previous works with how far the group has come from their early releases."
I've spent a lot of hours on this project this year. I really wanted to draw attention to some our country's awesome fuzzy, droney, drug-addled groups, that perhaps don't get the attention they deserve - especially outside of Australia - because the reality is we can boast some of the most unique and varied slow music of any country.
So I set off with intent to pull together some of my favourite artists in Australia's stoner, sludge, doom and drone scenes in order to get more people to discover great Australian underground music. But I was a little naive of quite how long it would take me!
The hard work paid off in the end. Drone form the Underside of the Earth features a selection of 26 tracks. This is a rare, eye-opening peek into Australia's rich underground music scene. At 3-and-a-half hours in length it's quite a ride, but I sincerely hope that you at least discover a few new bands as a result of this work.
Love and drone,
A large collection of ambient isolationism and noise. Enjoy.
This isn't usually my thing, but it might float your boat so I see no reason not to share it. It's experimental Hip-Hop/Rap with a female vocalist. Slightly poppy and a little Jazz influence. Lyrics are better than the flow, but something keeps me listening to it. There's a lot of room for dynamics here and that makes the tracks I've heard work really well when a climax or "big section" comes along. She also avoids talking about how great she is reasonably well, though she could tone it down at times.
Another share from Kazz Wazz.
>I'm bad with describing stuff like this, but think math-ish rock a la Perch Patchwork with the dude from Taking Back Sunday as the vocalist rather than Dave Davison. ... It's a lot more enjoyable than that sounds.
This is good... Feels everywhere.
Got an email from a fellow /mu/tant. Thanks to Kazz Wazz.
>Some noisy surf outfit. Only a couple of tracks but it's crazy good romp, I couldn't sit down listening to Ah Oh. The Oye EP is a lot more toned down, but it's still free and still a decent listen. The gem is Ah Oh, though.
I was going to write something, but the writer summed it up pretty well. Enjoy!

"One day I was sitting in my room, watching the rain through the window. It was late afternoon, quite dark around. The drops were hitting the glass from the outside - for me it was only a rumbling. I also heard a subtle drone but I couldn't think a way where it comes from. There should be only silence around but I still heard these drones. Was it in my head? One important thing: that rain lasted four hours. Fot this whole time I was sitting there, looking, listening. Apart from anything I grew to love all this, as it was a serene feeling. And so I wanted You too be able to feel it. To dive into this stillness of subtle changes. To let the time stop in Your head when You allow melancholy to rule over Yourself."
This demo track was recorded by Josh Marchant between the first and the fourth of May on an old and terribly fragmented laptop, hence the slight audio glitches now and again. It took four days to record due to excessive laziness and the inability to focus on anything for more than five minutes. It was then mixed and mastered by my cat who told me with utmost confidence that she had a PHD in music. Don't worry, she was promptly fired after I listened to this mess.
