Holy shit, thank you!
Holy shit, thank you!
Thanks, Bryan, that list does indeed look amazing. I'm only familiar with Os Mutantes and Fahey and know a couple of the others in name only. I don't know how you have enough hours in the day/in your life to have listened to as much as you obviously have. I'd love to find another genre that I love a quarter as much as I love rock. With that in mind, the folk/delta blues is a great suggestion, though I plan to check it all out. I love the idea of someone asking what I'm listening to currently and replying "Oh, Turkish Psych and some Ethiopian jazz, mostly, but the new Christopher Owens is pretty good, too."
if anyone is seriously interested in digging deep into gamelan... i could put together a primer from what I know. there are some incredibly dull compilations out there (surprisingly, most of the nonesuch releases), so it's actually quite a chore to sift through it all. also, indonesian music generally (imho, gamelan actually tends to be some of the least interesting traditional music from southeast asia).
Rey, that sounds incredible. From what I've heard about Smith, he was a sloppy, shitty sort of guy in general who was a pain in the ass to deal with, but his extreme hoarding of records paid dividends to our culture.
Jared, PLEASE do. I would love to learn more about southeast asian traditional, folk and pop musics.

Yeah, that Os Mutantes is Fucking rad. The Ethiopiques No 4 is awesome, too. Ironically, I already had both of these on my hard drive.
I had never listened to either of them, though. Really digging what I've listened to from that list so far.
How many times does this again need to be explained:
Put the fucking band & album name in the message.
theklein...that means you and your god-awful taste. piss off ya twit.
I won tickets to see Ra Ra Riot a few years ago, and it was one of the most stale shows I've ever seen. Just pointless fluff.
I really couldn't give a shit about Ra Ra Riot. They have 2 songs that have any meaning to me. I know there are people who are interested in hearing this album, though replacing the cello with a synth will probably send them backwards.
And in regards to posting the name and album title, fuck you, if it's that obvious then I'm not going to do it, figure it out or don't read this thread.
Only a lazy ass would refuse to click to go back and scroll one page. Cry me a river.
Hey klein how about you just stick to posting leaks from bands you like. Then we all win.
My fucking god. It makes it POSSIBLE to search, not just easier. Sometimes people don't read a thread for a month say, and there are 20 new pages. They can search if something has leaked they have been waiting for or if they have something to contribute they can see if someone beat them to it. In a perfect world the thread would ONLY be albums cover images and ARTIST- ALBUM TITLE but instead people dont search or dont follow the way that is most efficient and we have to berate/flog/scold for a couple of posts. No one is picking on you, there a bunch of assholes that do it, even people that have 36,000+ posts here fuck it up.
This thread/ thegroup has been going on longer then you or I have been here, its established. You just look like an asshole, which is fine/bearable/sometimes MAYBE even funny in the rumors section but the Music Lounge is a great resource year round.

It's Ra Ra Riot... HOLY FUCKING SHIT.
Just in general man. It's kinda the way things operate. No bad vibes.
IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT BEING RA RA RIOT!
Some bad vibes going on with the fuck you's and the cry me the river's if you ask me. Meh.
