Due to the completely overwhelming success of my Alcest recommendation thread (see "I Defy Anyone on this board to..."), I'm making this a feature thread. Good news: After reading this post you can skip this thread if you want. Bad news: Well, I have a killer mongoose awaiting my instructions.
OK, rules are simple... I own a shitload of CD's, vinyl, and tapes (fuck you, mom, for throwing away half of them-that's why I didn't eat my cauliflower when I was a kid! though thanks for holding on to Vanilla Ice-He's dope!!!) and I'm sharing recs to actually veer some of this board in the right direction (music). So, considering the Alcest thread flamed out pretty quickly (one poster actually called Alcest "Doom" which would be like me calling John Darneille a fantastic hardcore freestyle rapper (maybe Against the Pollution came closest)... OK, so twice a week (or whenever I feel like it), I'm going to recommend bands and books (I'll leave the movies for Gabe). For those with an open mind, I can perhaps zip you a file (assuming it is in CD format, not vinyl or tape), though I can pick and choose who I respond to. This thread will occur twice a week. I have roughly 8,000 CD's, taped and casettes begging to be included, but I'm picking choice shit. Oh and please flame away if you wish, but at least listen to the album first. I can zip these files and pm them, but only to people who give me a good enough reason. So, fellow audiophiles, this is just a rec/feedback thread. Wanna see my qualifications?
Coming soon, first review.
