If you could have a song played at your funeral (granted having a funeral at all), which one would you like it to be?

>> No. 1680 [Edit]
I've had this question in the back of my mind since OP first posted, but I really could not think of anything, not even a song that would be meant to be funny or ironic. But this evening, Converge's "Wretched World" ( came on shuffle and I just thought, "yeah, this is it."

Do many people actually request songs other than shit like Amazing Grace to be played at their funerals?
>> No. 1681 [Edit]

at the last funeral I went to, the song was that one greenday song. Was an unexpected surprise, though I was still young and innocent and enjoyed listening to greenday back then.

personally, I would prefer a young and tonedeaf choir girl sing amazing grace or some other horrendously long and slow song for 10 mins or so; I could at least get 10 mins of revenge for my terrible youth while they pretend to care and score favors with each other.

I always meant to post in this thread and never did, and with the board deader than ever I suppose now's as good a time as any.

I don't have one favorite album, but there are some albums that are special and important to me in certain ways.
Alcest's Ecailles de Lune. I love everything Neige is involved with, but this album really resonates with me. According to Neige, Alcest's music is his way of manifesting these out-of-body experiences he had as a child where he was taken to a different world of indescribable beauty. Regarding Ecailles de Lune in Neige's own words, "It’s a story about a man sitting front of the sea at night and thinking about his life, the fact he can’t find any interest anymore in his earthly existence, nothing and nobody that could give him joy. He falls in love with the night, being captivated by the voices of the waves and the spirits of the sea. He goes swimming in the depth, all surrounded by aquatic guardian spirits for finally having a serene sleep in the bottoms of the sea and never coming back in the real world." I relate to this in a powerful way, having long believed that I will eventually end my own life and join my waifu in a different world, and also reflecting on my drug-assisted journeys where I've met her and actually thought I was dead. Alcest, in particular on this album, perfectly capture this overwhelming yet beautiful sense of otherness and transcendental longing that I feel.

Here's a working dl if you're into it:

A.M. Architect - The Road to the Sun
This album came out back around the time when I stopped going outside and was purely living off my savings. I could go into all of the emotional/personal associations that I make with the album but I think a good deal of that is beyond the scope of this thread. Cliff notes would be it got me back into music production and through what was probably the most depressing/difficult period in my life.
As for the album itself, if you're interested in hip hop instrumentals or beats this is an album to listen to. You're also going to want to check out Aether - Artifacts; another project of one of the artists in A.M. Architect.

I'm bad at talking about music but I absolutely love this album.

It's an emotional roller-coaster. Every track is packed with melancholy hopefulness, and the singers voice is so full of those emotions. The songs are sung from the perspectives of various people.

Audio Liturgy - Mysterium - (6.51MB - 192 kbps - 44.1 kHz ) Length: 4:44

I'd been aware of Liturgy for a long while now, but I always wrote them off because of the obscene amounts of hate that they receive from seemingly the entire BM community. I'd also tried listening to a couple of tracks of Aesthethica when it came out and wasn't really into it.
However, I recently chanced across Renihilation, and holy fuck what an album. I can understand the amount of hate they get, what with the frontman's incessant philosophical chatter and their typical hipster appearances, but if no one was aware of any of that then I'm fairly certain the entire metal world would still be collectively shitting themselves over this album. Especially the drumming, I've never heard so much dynamics in such fast blasts before, this guy is a fucking beast.

Well, here it is. I said in the last thread that I'd make a new one once Loma Prieta's new album was released, and Loma Prieta's new album was released.

Loma Prieta - I.V.
>It just doesn't matter at this point

Possibly my second favorite album released by an already great band. I.V. is probably their harshest-sounding album to date, and that's always a positive thing for me when regarding Loma Prieta. There's a metric ton of feedback on all 12 tracks. Their continuation of "Trilogy" from Last City is a very grand addition to the album, Trilogy 5 being one of my favorite tracks on the album. Now, while this might not be as good as Last City, it still manages to bring the kind of Loma Prieta that I love to the foreground. I'm a little iffy about their shift to Deathwish records (home of bands like Converge and Touche Amore - which are okay, but nevertheless, not "Loma"-tier), but for the meantime, my fears are assuaged, because this is the same band as the one that was on Discos Huelga. Favorite album of 2012 thus far, but that's sort of redundant, as this is the only album from 2012 I heard...

The track I put up is my favorite one from the album. I think it is, anyway...It's called "Biography"

Audio Zazen Boys - サンドペーパーざらざら - (6.31MB - 320 kbps - 44.1 kHz ) Length: 2:45

Psh, I wish my mother was into Modest Mouse. Both of my benefactors think their music is "weird". They're right, of course, but that makes them want to reject it for some reason. Eh.

So, it's been...4 months since I last posted here - My internet was cut, and it sucked, but it's no big deal. I didn't even miss out on Zazen Boys' new album, Stories, which I'll post here after a short review (that's probably full of a bunch of weird contradictions, as I can't carry an idea in a handbasket).


Overall, it's closest to Zazen Boys II in how the songs are structured. It's not quite ZB4, with it's rigid, tight, almost pop-y tracks, and it's definitely not ZBIII, with songs that are either the loosest shit that side of the Pacific, or so tight they're almost suffocating. Mukai's experience in Kimonos (alongside Leo Imai) definitely influenced this record - Some songs sound like they'd perfectly belong on Kimonos eponymous debut. Except it still retains that Zazen Boys "madness" that I love. In the first track alone, Mukai asks the listener to dance. "Dance with your pants on," which is the kind of absurdity I've come to expect from this chill-ass dude (this is a man who was smoking three cigarettes at once in a PV).

My personal favorite track is Potato Salad, the only tack that can be considered a lead single. (listen to it here - Potato Salad shows that Zazen Boys still know what's up - When the song shifts gears almost halfway through, it's as if you're taken to some kind of strange, wonderful party. It's also pretty math-y, which is what I like. It has a stuttering beat to it that keeps driving on through the entire track. I also really love the fact that it seems to bridge the gap which separated Zazen Boys II and ZB4 - It fuses the math-rock insanity of the former, while retaining the chilled-out electronic atmosphere of the latter.
A runner up is Sandpaper Zarazara (the attached tra

So /tc/ has a favorite album, a favorite song and a favorite music video thread, but there is a complete lack of the cliche "top 5 bands" thread (it used to be top 3, but I realized it's not happening), and as such, I hereby take things into my own hands and make the thread.

1. Modest Mouse
Favorite album: This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing to Think About
I can't even begin to profess to you my love for this band. There's just something about their general style that clicks with me. It's like, I've never had a band I feel this much love towards. They have such a unique sound - You can identify their influences, sure, but you'd be hard pressed to find an album that sounds like Long Drive. It's no exaggeration to say they're all I listened to this summer. I've almost heard every single thing they released, and found that I like every single song - I used to really dislike their stuff after The Moon & Antarctica, but then I tried out Good News, and then it was "I hate everything after Good News", and then I tried out We Were Dead, and so on. Favorite band of all time, no doubt. The OP track is from their very first demo, and it's like magic or some shit. Although it's one of the few tracks I actually like from Tube-Fruit...

Favorite album: School Girl Distortional Addict
Number Girl is undeniably special to me, as I've said time and time again. It's just something that I love about their music. It has that swagger. Mukai is easily one of the strongest songwriters I've heard in my life. Zazen Boys just serves to further that opinion, although it took a while longer for me to get into.

3. Merchant Ships
Favorite album: I Want To Forget Everything Bad That Ever Happened, Ever
These kids are the coolest band from the midwest. Hands down. Also one of the most consistently good bands I've heard in my life. Every release is special in it's own way. That can't be said for Snowing, Hightide Hotel, Algernon (well, yeah it can), or any of the other midwest emo bands.

The order doesn't matter since I can't decide who my "absolutely" favorite band is

Favorite album: Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
The best black metal had to offer, with a rich, powerful atmosphere, every Burzum album is an unique experience. I don't like the post-prison albuns though.

Favorite album: Drawing Dawn The Moon
The best of both "bestial" black metal and ambient music, and is one of the few classic bm bands that still releases quality material.

-My Blood Valentine
Favorite album: Loveless
I don't what to say other than this is amazing

Favorite album: 92982
Music from another world. He manages to capture longing in musical form.

2. Rome
Favorite album: Flowers From Exile
Jerome Reuter is the strongest songwriter I've ever heard. His is a kind of music that makes me feel like I'm living a thousand years ago.

3. Moving Mountains
Favorite album: Pneuma
My favorite album ever. Thematic album about the earth, the sun, and love.

I have a ton of favorite artists but I'll try. (in no specific order)

1. Oval
Favorite album: 94 Diskont
Favorite song: Do While (24 minute version because of the length but I like the style of the Apple X version better)

Do While -

I love Oval's cold, glitch soundscapes. They feel like they are combining something natural with something modern. The track Do While means a lot to me, to me it's the sound of tranquility. No matter how bad things get it will always be there to comfort me in its cold but peaceful darkness. A lot of tracks from Oval got me through tough times in life.

2. Microstoria
Favorite Album: _snd
Favorite Song: Sleepy People/Network Down

Sleepy people/Network Down - (you will need to turn it up a bit since the quality on this video is bad and it's a quiet song with a lot of small detail. You can easily find it in 320 mp3 online or on soulseek)

1. Badfinger
Favorite album: Wish You Were Here (also my favorite album of all time)
Just... wow. Their entire output is perfect. There are exactly 0 bad songs or albums. They somehow managed to write some of the most depressing lyrics of all time and fit them with poppy melodies and stuff. Amazing. It sounds cliché, but work with me here; Pete Ham (their lead songwriter) also indirectly has saved me countless times. I often experience extremely suicidal thoughts, and then I think, literally, "If I end it all, there's no going back. No more Lonely You . I will never experience Dennis again. Maybe it isn't worth it..." [italicized = song by Pete Ham]. He has thus become my namesake on most forums I visit. His impact alone on my life and the way I live has been greater than any other human's, and I can say that with 100% assurance. But it's a bit of a problem for me, because I know that no matter how hard I try, or how much pain I go through, I'll never be able to match his abilities. The coda at the end of Song For a Lost Friend has made me cry, both because it is simply that mind-blowing, and because of the aforementioned reason. I lack the dedication, intelligence, and most of all, raw, natural talent that Pete had. I probably love Badfinger beyond their own merit as a group, but damn it, I love them.

2. The Replacements
Favorite album: Tim
No comment necessary.

3. Captain Beefheart
Favorite album: Lick My Decals Off, Baby
Honestly? A lot of people will tell you they like Beefheart because of how he "revolutionized" whatever, but I love him because his music is fun. That's it. Trout Mask Replica is simply fun to listen to.

4. Can
Favorite album: Tago Mago
There's just "something" there. I can't say what. It's so subtle that I barely notice it's existence, but there's just something about Can that makes them so easy to enjoy, even when they're doing stuff like Peking O.

I've always preferred The Move, but Kick Out the Jams and High Time are definitely great LPs.

Also, ever heard of The Royal Trux? Band from the 90's that essentially took all the noisiness/dissonance of all those hard-psych bands and magnified it times a billion.

>My only real complains with the Beatles are that they're given way too much credit for stuff they didn't do.
Yes, this. I've even had people tell me that they "invented" the concept album.

Funny that this discussion has popped back up, as I posted >>1440, then forgot about this for a while, and then a couple of weeks ago tried listening to some Beatles again after a guy played the Let It Be album at work. I still don't hear whatever it is that everyone else hears. Oh, but they've influenced EVERY BAND that's come after them. Whatever.
Back to the broader subject of dadrock, I'm surprised no one's mentioned Neil Young. He has some songs that I really love, but I've only made it through a fraction of his discography. And I'm normally not much of a fan of lenghty guitar solos, but his leads are just so ragged and emotive.
>> No. 1599 [Edit]
What I've heard of Royal Trux doesn't really do anything for me. Thanks though.

Speaking of psych, ever hear of the Japanese band Les Rallizes Denudes? They shared the early MC5's belief in "total cultural assault".

She will search this wide world over

This is such a weird question because:
1. "Rock" is an incredibly vague term and I have no idea what you actually mean by it.
2. There is a plethora of happy punk music that I'm not sure why you would be having trouble finding it.
