stoked for that, I absolutely loved RTJ2. probably my favorite hip-hop album of 2014, along with Sadistik's Ultraviolet.

 

and on that note..

 

 

 

I guess I'm one of the few people on here who likes rap. I mean, I also like most music from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, but I like rap just as much. My favorite rappers are Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Macklemore, and The Game

 

it's not one of my favorite genres, but I dig it. I'm more of a fan of old-school hip-hop and alternative hip-hop than most of what's popular today, though. Public Enemy, Nas, Beastie Boys, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest, Sadistik, Death Grips, and Run the Jewels are some of my favorites.

New Björk album, Vulnicura, to come out in March.

I'm pretty psyched.

 

 

Edit:

 

Just heard that Origa passed away yesterday. Really saddening news.

Admittedly, I'm not familiar with the vast majority of her music, but I absolutely adore her work with Yoko Kanno on the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex soundtrack. I've listened to Inner Universe more times than I can count.

Rest in peace, Origa

so this is absolutely huge news:

 

New Albums To Be Released On Fridays Globally Starting This Summer
 
Following consultation with artists, musicians unions, record companies and retailers, it was confirmed today that the release day for new music will be aligned internationally on a Friday.

Release days currently vary from one country to another, causing frustration for consumers when music fans in other parts of the world can access new releases before them. As well as helping music fans, the move will benefit artists who want to harness social media to promote their new music. It also creates the opportunity to re-ignite excitement and a sense of occasion around the release of new music.

The move to an aligned global release day will also reduce the risk of piracy by narrowing the gap between release days in different countries.

Retailers internationally are committed to working with the labels and artist communities to ensure the successful implementation of the move to Friday.

From summer 2015, new albums and singles will be released at 00:01 local time on Fridays. Music consumers everywhere will know to look for new releases on Fridays regardless of where they are.

Consumer research by TNS across seven markets shows Friday and Saturday as the most preferred days for new music release among consumers who expressed an opinion. More than two thirds of those with a preference (68%) chose Friday or Saturday.

The move to a global release day follows several months of discussions between group representing retailers, record companies, artists and musicians unions.

The global release day consultation has included:

* IFPI, representing some 1300 record labels worldwide;
* FIM, representing musicians’ unions and associations globally
* Featured Artists Coalition representing UK performers;
* Leading retailers and representative organisations, including Australian Music Retailers Association (AMRA), E.Leclerc, El Corte Inglés, Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) (UK), HMV, Italian Association of Specialist Consumer Electronics Retailers (AIRES), Media-Saturn, Music Business Association (Music Biz US), Mondadori Retail, the Orchard, Rdio, Spotify, Napster.

source: Blabbermouth.net, further reading: Variety, Rolling Stone

 

I like this change, honestly. I like it a lot.

edit:

 

also im probably the only one cuz i preordered it and its not out officially until tomorrow but if anyone else here has the new modest mouse record

 

HOW GOOD IS THIS

 

its like the best parts of We Were Dead meshed with the best parts of Good News, but never losing that distinct modest mouse style

 

except on Lampshades On Fire, idk about that one. i'll have to see if the rest of the record grows on me, but i do know that Pistol and Pups To Dust are aces

I was told to come here with this instead of making a new thread. Does anyone know of some more artists that do this kind of style? The tags say "trip hop" and "breakbeat", but neither really fit.

https://soundcloud.com/c418/the-driver

Either a genre or similar artists would be fine if you know of any. Thanks in advance.

Com Truise is a bit more punchy and 80s ish though. Like if someone said "I need something that sounds retro" you would show them Com Truise.

Crystal Castles is back, sans Alice Glass. a new song was unexpectedly released today with the debut of new vocalist "Edith". it sounds like typical Crystal Castles, which is in no way a bad thing.

Oh. My. God.

 

New album by Refused, entitled Freedom, out on June 30.

 

I almost can't believe this is actually happening. I have never been this excited for any music in my life.

bocuma released an album about 1 1/2 months ago called Orphans of the Sky. If you're into chill ambient/idm/triphop you should definitely check his work out.

What's better than a new Boris album? Simple: three new Boris albums, titled Asia, Urban Dance and Warpath, which will start being available at their live shows starting tomorrow.

So, this year basically can't get any better.

I can think of a few things that could make the year marginally better, but one thing that I think would put the year absolutely over the top would be Fugazi coming off of their 12-year hiatus. too bad it's looking like that will never, ever happen.

If Boards of Canada released an EP one or two years after an LP, as they have done twice in the past (MHTRTC-INABPOITC 2 years, The Campfire Headphase-Trans-Canada Highway 1 year) then we are due for one this year, as Tomorrow's Harvest was released in 2013. THAT would make this year way better.

I'm not as dedicated of a fan to Kamelot. I have some other bands that I am more dedicated to ;)

 

I'm not preording Breaking Benjamin's new album, but I'm getting more excited for it as they release more singles from it.

since I can't post this in the Official Metal Topic without double posting, may as well post it here:

 

Lamb of God has released a new song, "Still Echoes", for streaming and have announced that their new album VII: Sturm Und Drang will be available this July. there's artwork available and a pre-order up.

 

song is killer. reminds me a bit of Wrath mixed with As the Palaces Burn. artwork kind of gives off a Palaces vibe, too.

Don't think anyone here is into this kind of stuff, but I've got to say that I am super into the new collaboration album between Merzbow, Balázs Pándi, Mats Gustafsson and Thurston Moore - Cuts of Guilt, Cuts Deeper. It's a free improvisation album, with healthy doses of noise and free jazz.

This might actually be my album of the year thus far. Not that I expect it to stay there for long with the myriad of releases I'm excited for right around the corner, but still, for now it shall remain.

 

Merzbow is really on point with the collaborations lately. This, the MERZXIU album with Xiu Xiu from earlier this year, and of course Full of *Heck* from last year. It would be nice to see him do one with Boris again as well.

Can it be June yet? I'm really hyped for the new Breaking Benjamin album (among other Summer releases)! The songs that have been released from said album are great anthems.

What is/was your favorite BB album? And yeah, I don't really think of them as a guilty pleasure...that title belongs to both Kelly Clarkson & Katy Perry lol

I'd probably say Phobia, Dear Agony and We Are Not Alone are tied and which one I like best changes depending on my mood. :P Dear Agony used to be my favourite so maybe I'll go with that one for now. And yeah I have a few other more-guilty pleasures like Avril Lavigne and All-American Rejects but BB still fall under the banner of bands I wouldn't normally like much but do, for some strange reason.
