    been listening to the whole run of Pod Minutes to Cast Night and I'm currently on the Korn dubstep episode. I'm a little enamored of the crew and also intimidated by their knowledge. I do appreciate that the episodes have finally given me free reign to hate things instead of find something to like. I've always been "well, maybe this part was good" but hearing them I finally understand that it's OK to just straight-up hate it.

    Some of the vocabulary is lost on me because I'm ~10-15 years older than they are so when they are talking about what it was like growing up in the scene I have only a barest idea what they're talking about. I usually just think back to what my brother in law was like (he's 13 years younger than I am) when he was a teen and had the gauges and spiky DBZ hair. probably wrong but it's the closest I got.

    Black Dresses - LOVE AND AFFECTION FOR STUPID LITTLE BITCHES

    Feels wrong that this project never actually got a mention here while it was still together from my cursory search. Seems to me like a clear descendent of the music that this board is about, even though the line of influence does not seem to be direct. I hope more people get to hear it.

    This is raw as hell, but crisply written industrial pop that wonderfully embraces what would probably be considered "bad" and "overly digital" sounds and timbres with a purposeful zeal rarely seen outside of a 90s Atari Teenage Riot record. There's of course many other precedents for what's happening here thematically and sonically, but their music still felt genuinely fresh to me the first time I heard it, and still does. Also the performances are raw as fuck, especially for the kind of parts and melodies they are often tied to. This is abrasively sincere music in multiple ways.

    I really love that in music "aggressive" verbs and adjectives can often play much more
    ambiguously than they do in other forms of art where they tend to be more strictly functional. Black Dresses illustrate this idea really well, other people have aptly described them as encapsulating feelings of being powerful and powerless at the same time. This is extremely bold and big music that's often about feeling small, which a lot of my (other) favorite music also is.

    At least both members are really prolific, producing a lot of music in other projects. This record from August of last year is not even their most recent album,
    I just suspect it's a slightly better introduction to their music.

    This movie is on, not really watching, but listening to the amazing soundtrack; wonder who did it?

    Colin and Lennart from Amenra teamed up with Cellini to form a new dark techno (think TBQ) called Eyes of Another. I dig.



    From the sounds in this super short doc about the collab, the rest of it sounds pretty sinister.

    Almost deleted it after a cursory first listen a few weeks ago but it's fitting my mood today.

    I wonder which is worse: watching the movie and then the anime or vice versa? Haven't see either.

    Watch the 1995 anime movie.
    Avoid the 2017 live action version.

    I enjoyed the anime series Stand Alone Complex but the animation is nowhere near the quality of the film and there's quite a bit of filler.

    Danke schön! I'll put that on the list. I found Akira on Hulu the other day and watched the trailer with my son. I've seen the movie - in 00, maybe 01? - so I was watching him for reaction. the look of horror slash interest was fun.

    Listening to the live Mutemath album Flesh And Bones Electric Fun at the moment - I started with their Reset EP first - because @richardp put the band back into my head with the post in the Underrated Artists thread.

    I made a playlist of some of my mixtapes over on Mixcloud... it's... therapeutic music.

    Yeah.

    That's it.

    Therapeutic.
