Guess I'll just dump whatever. Please chime in if you'd like to share something as well. I try to be all about trying new things.

I'll start with Loma Prieta's newest release, Life/Less. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite releases of the year, despite it's length (about 16 minutes). This is the very first rip I got (a few days after it leaked), therefore, I'm not sure if there are better/clearer rips out there. It'd be pretty sweet if they were. If someone finds one, please, do share.
This album is significantly more intense than their previous work, with some songs being just a wall of noise. Despite that, the band still keeps an ear for hooks and melodies that I can't get enough of. They lost the original vocalist at some point, and now the vocals are a little more pointed towards Kidcrash/We Were Skeletons rather than Orchid. In other words, it sounds more like men shouting than "a strangled muppet having an anxiety attack at 120 mph". As you can guess, this is not my rip, and again, if you find a better one, post it up.

Anyway...

On a somewhat related note, Snowing's full-length is set to leak within the next few weeks (possibly even this one). Immeasurably stoked about that. I'm definitely going to buy a copy of that on every possible form of media I can.

It worked, sweet. I prefer the Argentinian stuff to this, I think. Not by that much, though. Something about the female (of is that a high-pitched male?) vocals really make the album for me.

Now for something completely different. I'd do all caps, because it is a massive contrast, but I don't think this calls for cruise control.

It has been so, so long since I hear an album this minimalist and beautiful. I'm really hyped on it - Kind of strange considering how slow it is. The songs are a little hard to describe. I guess it could be described as " more organic, less spazzy World's End Girlfriend" - Just not as cool a title (World's End Girlfriend just has something about it, you know?). With this album, I was actually a little sad when it ended. That hasn't happened in years. It's a brilliant, beautiful album.

2007 was such a good year for music.

It's hot today, man. And I don't even have an air-conditioner. It blows (yes, that was a pun). So, summer tunes are in order.

Wavves - King of the Beach
>Noise rock/'surf punk'
www.mediafire.com/?2tm3f0u7iwcv4y6

You guys should have heard this already. If you didn't, here's your best chance to listen to the perfection that Wavves brings to the table. One of my favorite releases of 2010: The dude can really write some awesome, simple pop-songs. Good music for when you're feeling like shit, for sure. The earlier releases, when it was just one guy, are pretty cool, too. I'll probably post them some other day, if nobody beats me to it.
'Baseball Cards' is what I would call a NEET-anthem: "I don't wanna walk outside / Cause where would I go? / Well I don't know // Time takes its toll / And where would I go? / We don't know // Because I don't wanna walk outside / I don't wanna walk outside without you". Other stand-out tracks are 'Post Acid', 'Super Soaker', 'Take On The World', 'Baby Say Goodbye', 'Idiot' and 'Green Eyes'.

It's perfect summer music, although, ironically, I'm terrified of the beach. You can't be the king of the beach if you're scared of the people there.

The album cover is also probably the best cover art I've ever seen. That, and the lead single (which is a 2-minute song full of feedback) were incentive enough for me to get the album.

Toddle - The Shimmer
>Shoegaze/indie
http://gotupload.com/091s4x4mws8c/toddle_-_the_shimmer.rar.html

Unorthodox, yes, but fuck it. It's Toddle. The first single got me really interested in it, and the album does not disappoint one bit. Best Toddle release I've heard. Anywhere from 7-9/10 at least.

There are a lot more pretty-sounding melodies and NG-esque bits (well, she was the lead guitarist). I'd say it sounds like a girly version of Number Girl. That sounds like an insult, but I don't mean it as one. It's a lot more mellow and laid-back compared to their other stuff. Sounds all nostalgic and stuff. It's damn near perfect. She really knows how to work with melodies and stuff.

Favorite track is 'Wagtails' for me. The 'girly NG' comparison really comes to light there, and it also has some evident Butchers influence. It's like...Butchers, NG and Mass of the Fermenting Dregs put into one song. Plus, who doesn't love wagtails?
Other stand-out tracks are 'Eraser' (lot of energy on that one), 'Arpeggio', 'Chase It' (sounds like it could be on a Butchers album), 'Minimal' (which is anything but, mind you), and 'Cast Away'.

I really hate using the NG/Butchers comparisons. They feel really 'unnecessary'.

MANS

MANS are one of the most interesting bands I've ever heard. No joke. These dudes are awesome. Not exactly 'top 10 bands' material, but they'd be up there if I still like them in five months as much as I do now.

It's sort of hard to describe their sound, but if I had to pick something to compare it to (as I always do), I'd say it sounds like...William Bonney meets The Reptilian. It's amazing. They also do a surprising amount of instrumental songs - I think like, half of their discography is vocal-less.

They also did a cover of Slint's 'Washer' that I vastly, vastly prefer to the original. And Slint is the shit.

All of their stuff is free on their bandcamp, so I'd feel like an asshole if I didn't link it.

This is mind-boggling stuff. I've never really heard anything quite like it in my life. All I can really compare it to is a heavy version of Toe. But there are a lot more dimensions to it than just that simple description. To say it simply, it's hard to explain.

Kyuss - Welcome To Sky Valley
>Stoner metal (grungy psychedelic stuff)
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=HAUCYKOZ
Password: robixxx

Kyuss are easily my favorite metal band. This is probably my...10th (-ish) favorite album of all time.
Boris would be my favorite metal band, but screw that, they're too diverse. Kyuss just have that old-school metal sound, combined with the modern influence of bands like Melvins and Soundgarden (even though I'm pretty sure Soundgarden got their sound from Kyuss). I like Queens of the Stone Age, but I always dismiss that as normalfag rock. Other than their first three releases, they kind of fall flat.
Kyuss is just one of those bands that I'll always know the members for. It's the perfect album for summer-time sunsets. If you had even a modicum of love for Soundgarden as a kid (or even right now), then Kyuss is going to be right up your alley.

The song posted isn't that Soundgarden-y, but it's the best song on the album.

Their debut LP released last year was good, but a bit too abrasive at times for me. This one's a bit more restrained, focusing on atmosphere instead of going all out with screeching feedback and catchy melodies.

So, fuck yeah, Innards put out a new release - A split EP with a band called мища. They still sound like Modest Mouse skramz, and it's still awesome. The newer stuff is actually loads more melodic than the songs on Tracing/Cool Out, Mthrfkr. 'Slothbear' is easily the most chilled-out tune I heard from them, next to 'Hard To Swallow'.
мища are really quite an aggressive band. Whereas Innards have melodies and "catchy shouts", мища just simply focuses on ripping your face off.

Preview track is 's1mpl3 decisions'.

On a related note, I finally found the lyrics to Tracing, so now I can understand what the hell he's screaming. They were hiding on the innards.bandcamp all this time.

I've been getting into Foals. The vocal remind me of that of Block Party, just more organic. I like it. Both of their studio albums are superb. I've got them in their 2CD releases, so it's looking quite complete, but I wonder still: is the EPs worth getting with these?

I'll do a summary of what I've gotten into while following this thread:
And So I Watch You From Afar
bloodthirsty butchers
Crystal Castles
Foals (+ The Edmund Fitzgerald)
Innards
MANS
Spiral Chord
Yuck
and miscellaneous non-English bands, but mostly the 8 above. I have listened through about all of the music posted here, some I have already been familiar with. I gathered more of the stuff I liked, and dropped what I didn't. What I've learned so far is that I'm not the guy for post-hardcore, so that probably means generic hardcore rock and metal-ish stuff wouldn't work either. What I found out I do like is noise rock, shoegaze and screamo. bb, foals, innards, spiral chord (kind of a given, coming from a COWPERS fan) and yuck ranks high, really high. cc and MANS ranks mildly high. Both of them should in theory rank really high as well, while both makes very enjoyable music, neither broke through that last emotional barrier of inordinate approval.

Ahh, man, I love Bloc Party. They were one of my favorite bands a few years back. Their earlier catalog has some of my favorite albums in general (Silent Alarm, the self-titled EP, and so on). Totally get the comparison.

As for Foals, they don't really have any EP's, per se? They have a lot of awesome B-sides, but if you want them in a physical format, then you're in for a good few months of searching, because of their weird method of releasing singles. For example, the vinyl version of Red Socks Pugie has 'Gold Gold Gold' as a B-side, whereas the CD version has 'A Sketch For ESG'. I'd say that's pretty normal, but on top of all that, there's yet another version of the vinyl release, that has 'Titan Arum' as the B-side. It's a little ridiculous.

If you're lazy/have no money, you're better off just downloading the B-side compilation that's floating around the net. However, if you're legit interested in them (the artwork is really awesome for the Antidotes-era singles), this site should really help: http://steevepatrick.com/foals/, along with Amazon/eBay, of course.

New Mukai thing.

Apparently he wrote a soundtrack for what I'm assuming is a play/musical.

It's a pretty awesome track. However, it's also less than two minutes...

Still, though, if this is any indication of the direction he's taking Zazen Boys next, then I don't mind it one bit. Of course, his musical styles are eccentric, and ZB seems kind of comfortable where they are. Well, either way, they simply have to do something asap, because it's been about 4 years since Zazen Boys 4.

The entire thing is released on the 22nd, but that's kind of irrelevant - I'm sure it'll be near-impossible to find.

I've listened to it a few times now. It's cool and all, but my impression is that it lacks the impact of their self-titled studio album.. like anything else. Then again, debutes are always too special to be used for clinical comparison.

Foals really was a big surprise for me. I find their music genuinely entertaining, as well as engaging. Entertainment and engagement is for me two very different aspects of intellectual work in general. Entertainment is inferior in value to engagement in my cognitivity. It's still bemusing to see these two assets combined, so I can't help but feeling immensely impressed. There's this conceived perception of simplicity in their presentation, I feel. Musical simplicity connotes more than the number of instruments and tones; it leaves artistic values to be unveiled by the listener. I feel there's much to explore with Fauls.

School Food Punishment - Prog-Roid
http://www.mediafire.com/?jcj6ks2e6aqe9zw

SFP's new album is some pretty old news, but since /tc/ likes them (or if they don't, they should), I figure I'd put it up. It's an alright album, despite featuring some of the ugliest cover art I've seen in my life. Okay, it's not that bad, but it's still pretty damn ugly.
The record itself is, as I said before, alright. It's not as awesome as Amp-Reflection or the releases that preceded it, but it's listenable, and it's SFP. Has the ending theme to [Ç] - RPG, which is a pretty track featuring a lot of strings, much like their other big ED hit - futuristic imagination, just a little more catchy (I do prefer futuristic imagination, though). I'm pretty up in the air about [Ç] as an anime, but god damn did I love the ED. You can rest easy, In Bloom is not a Nirvana cover. It's a really cute, catchy song that belongs as the ED theme to a moe harem anime or something. Starts a bit slow, however. 'free quiet' is a pretty damn perfect opening track, not on par with Modest Mouse's openers (Teeth Like God's Shoeshine - I hold every album opener to those standards), but good like Foals' (they have really excellent track "ones"). The rest of the album is unspectacular, but good.

In other news (from a completely different band), a new Loma Prieta record is on the horizon, titled 'I.V.' It's their fourth full length (such as they are - Loma records have a habit of clocking in at less than 30 minutes). Get it? IV. 4. Hohoho. I just got that reference...The embed is the preview track. Although it should technically be a SFP video...Whatever. I prefer this. It's a really intense, raw track with an ending that turns out to be rather pretty. I love it. If this is what the rest of the album sounds like, this might just be one of my favorite releases by them.

I figure when that's released, I'll just make a new thread, since this one's got too much of a back-log to reasonably go through now, and I like the idea of doing that for future Loma records, since they became one of my favorite bands. Probably #6. So damn excited.

/mp3/ sure has fallen on hard times.

Well, whatever. This is a Can song from the early 70's. I love this album.

I'll see what I can do about those Butchers albums. I really hate what's happened to the internet. It's gotten to be pain-inducingly tough to find an album that you need.

Have a Wavves song while you wait.

Alright. Had to upload them myself, but these are all of the Butchers tracks (which isn't really many, actually) that I've had stored on external drives, that survived the catastrophe that was my PC dying.

Have we still got any butchers fans floating around?

I discovered them about 10 months ago, and they simply sky-rocketed to becoming my number one favourite band of all time. I was never a really heavy music listener, but after discovering butchers, I've since been quite active in trying to discover new bands which could come close to how much I enjoy butchers, but nothing has come close.

Obviously since the last post in 2012, quite a lot has happened to butchers. Most notably is that Hideki passed away in May 2013. But they did release one last album (Youth), which I think is my favourite of all their albums. レクイエム (Requiem) has become my favourite song of all time, and the album is full of other great songs like Destroyer, which is also up there as one of my favourite tracks that they produced.

Hideki and Hisako released little mini albums or EPs at 7ep.net, both of which are great. I really hope Hisako releases a full solo album, or at least continues with toddle, though I know she is part of quite a few bands now (LAMA, SPANK PAGE). Imoriya (bass) collaborated with some dude from another band, and it's quite bass guitar oriented (as you can imagine). I'm not too sure what's going on with Komatsu (drums). I think he's playing drums for a band called SOSITE or something.

Also, I bought the Kocorono documentary and it very luckily has English subtitles. You can download it (as well as a few other things, and I'm planning to upload pretty much anything I can of butchers to this folder eventually):

Yep; I'm glad to hear you like them so much. When it comes to Japanese rock cowpers and toddle is more my jam, but butchers is up there. I'll look into the other bands you mentioned. I haven't been looking at new music so much lately, so I've missed their newest album. I'll try to get it in the near future.

Holy shit you're awesome dude. I'm looking forward to whatever other stuff you'll upload.
