And i don't mean to what's popular or on the radio, i mean to just earnestly search and listen to modern artists
Do you keep track of current music or just feel apathy towards it?

Yeah, not as much as when I was younger but every month or so I will go through recent releases or listen to what LULZ is talking about at the time. Honest think the last 2-3 have been some of the best music weve gotten in decades
last 2-3 years*
hard agree. i feel in love with music again and am seeking out new stuff on my own more than ever before
i wish LULZ would actually talk about the good stuff being released instead of seething over the same 5 bands
You mind telling us what sort of music you are listening to I'm all ears
I've haven't heard anything good since Titanic Rising
Horsey - Debonair was a surprisingly good quirky art rock album. doesn't overstay its welcome
the new Shame is quite nice and i don't even like most modern post-punk
Yegor Zabelov's NITI is fuckin crazy if you like post-rock adjacent stuff (though it's not even post-rock)
Remote Viewing - Modern Addictions is pretty decent sludge
Kirszenbaum - Się if you like folk. it's Polish
Bagdadski Vor - Kolhida is my favorite emo release of the past decade
Praed Orchestra! - Live in Sharjah for crazy Arabic type jazz. someone here got me into em
Гoлyби и бeзyмныe кaшeвapы - Hopa for some avant-progish, throat singy psych
plus a bunch more weirdo releases that probably wouldn't interest anyone here. music is in a great place right now imo
not really. there are some contemporary bands i follow but i don't pay much attention to what's happening right now
will check these just to see
interesting recs russianon
>plus a bunch more weirdo releases that probably wouldn't interest anyone here
i'll also give some recs:
DIM - dungeon synth with new age flavor
LICE - WASTELAND from the current uk post-punk i found this album to be the most interesting with interesting industrial and noise influences
La Lá - Mito peruvian folk with bossanova flavor
Svitlana Nianio - Iльми-Beлeтнi ukrainian ambient folk
Kjjjjjjjjj - Centro de dispersión Pretty unique math rock postrock prog or whatever
Emily A. Sprague - Hill, Flower, Fog indie pop musician make better music doing ambient. Reminds me of minecraft
okay but just for you :*
Anatol - Ana is sick. noisy Polish slacker rock that evades genre conventions
Пopeз нa coбaкe and 4 пoзиции Бpyнo are still cranking out dub-infused post-industrial bangers yet few people here know them
Det är därför vi bygger städer if you are looking for more emo
Spinvis - 220.127.116.11 for good chill dutch pop
otay:onii's 夢之駭客 Dream Hacker also is really good. like neoclassical darkwave but more fucked up and glitchy
check out Inga Blazhchuk, another Ukrainian folk musician who was a part of the same circles. her recordings from the 90s were (re?)released in 2021. the entire Kiev scene is too commonly overlooked
>the entire Kiev scene is too commonly overlooked
kazma kazma is also great. Quite an original take on medieval music
>4 пoзиции Бpyнo
that's a pretty big discog. Have you ever listened to uSSSy?
>that's a pretty big discog.
yeah... they're almost like the Legendary Pink Dots of Russia
i like Bзятиe, Caкpaльный движ, and Я зaкaзaн the most, but their sister band Пopeз нa coбaкe is a lot more palatable
>Have you ever listened to uSSSy?
yes. Afghan Music House Party is great
>Horsey - Debonair
Recycling every possible musical motif and style from the last decades of music is great?
Jfc zoomies have no culture whatsoever
i'm least attached to that record out of all the ones i mentioned. ersatz sporkcore aside, i recommend giving something else from that list a try
>kazma kazma is also great.
nice, i'll check em out. i'm generally a fan of that style. while post-punk and synthpop usually get all the attention cuz muh doomershit or whatever, east european post-industrial, downtempo and avant-folk are some of the best out there
>expected windmill-core post-punk revival retardation
you threw me for a loop anon, will give these a listen. cheers
I just started listening to Debonair. I'm on the fourth track. I don't dig the goofy nonchalant irony thing. I want to hear something with real emotion. Something that has guts. The whole repressed nihilistic millennials hiding behind a veil of irony thing is getting really, really stale. Make something real, cowards.
Yeah, I two tracks left and I gave up on it. I am so sick of music trying to be goofy. It's like everyone's so traumatized now that they can't make genuine art. I feel like it's all about them and how they look doing it, never the actual art. Maybe in five years or so everyone else will get sick of this shit and rebel by being aggressively authentic, and spark a new golden age, but for now, all we have is trembling millennials and people from gen Z trying desperately hard to sound as apathetic as possible. Fuck this shit.
what genres are you looking for? for the record, i agree that the millennial/zoomer irony shit is tiresome. very aesthetically driven, yet emotionally shallow time for art.
i really regret listing that album now, as that's the only one people are choosing to focus on, and it's the least interesting out of all of them. i just didn't want to list too many non-english releases 🙁
What OP posted and Black Country New Road have been doing some interesting things. The drill music thats been going on in New York. Underground hip hop like Yabujin, Sematary. Bladees new stuff is good. Found this song yesterday, its pretty good
Mostly apathetic, sometimes I'll hear something somewhat interesting. Where are the new sounds? Seems like it's all been done already...where's the evolution
I follow some bands/artists, but i mostly spend time discovering old stuff. There is not much interesting happening in rock or pop right now.
i let you guys do it for me then tag along
I'd say 70% of my music diet is new stuff, and another 20% is old but new to me. I frankly just get bored hearing the same albums over and over so I have to keep up with the modern scene to stay entertained, really don't understand the guys who settle into listening the same comfortable stuff they heard a million times already in high school and college.
this album is the elden ring of music
Is that good or bad?
Just known artistis and whatever Spotify throws at me that I like, like everyone else. I look for new screamo every once in a while but that's it.
Holy shit please never offer your opinion about anything again, k thx
I just feel overwhelmed by the amount of music that is produce nowdays. There's some underrated/overlooked stuff i like from the last decades so when i think about doing the same thing for current i just feel lazy
i search by myself, don't fall for the "consensus" pushed by the media, brands and pr agents like hat shitty album bal midi
I let LULZ filter it for me then check it all out 2-3 years later
On Spotify you can "follow" any bands you want.
There's a bell icon, I click it everyday and look through all the new releases from artists I follow.
I do the same anon. I check it everyday.
I also read some blogs and here on LULZ.
I can go back and listen to old music I haven't picked up yet and get the same experience without having to listen to new musicians.
>music exploration is using the bell ring on spotify
>not looking up new artists through mentions in interviews and e-zines
>using the musical equivalent of MAL to get your taste
Why do you people rely on spotify and all this algorithm bullshit? Where's the fun in that?
>>not looking up new artists through mentions in interviews and e-zines
Too much effort
It's not relying on the algorithm to find new bands. If I follow hundreds of bands I already enjoy it's hard to keep up with that much. If I can check everyday which one released a single, EP, or album then it's just smarter. I'm only being told about bands I follow, there's no algorithm telling me about bands I don't care about.
I still look through blogs and everything to find new bands, but I'm bound to miss things for ever single band i already enjoy. Why would I miss things because "da bell stupid, algoriddm"? It's not telling me things I don't want to know.
I don't see how it matters much how I receive the information that I band I like just put out a new single.
When you go to a concert do you actually go to the theater and look at what's playing, or do you go to a concert website and look at who's playing?
One is certainly more lazy than the other but does it matter how it's told to you? Do you still go out to the store and buy music magazines or do you read it online?
I think you're misinterpreting what the bell actually does
I've been currently going through the last 10 years of music to find albums and artists I like and there's definitely great music out there. People here just love to complain about being born in le wrong generation.
Compare the best 20 or albums from the last 10 years with the 10 years before, and the 10 years before that and so on, and you will see what people mean. It's not that good music doesn't exist anymore, it's that the quality has been going down steadily for a long time now.
I am looking up current music all the time, always through Bandcamp. Lots of great stuff the last few years. Finally getting out to see more shows too, so I've been excited with music lately.
Do people unironically listen to this band on a regular basis or is it just a shit test/in-group thing? It's absolutely unlistenable
yeah but i mostly listen to indie or math rock/midwest emo, which is cringe.
i have however decided to embrace the cringe. recc good artists to an anon who liked black country new road and black midi.
pic related is a shoegaze album, crystallize, by Tokyo Shoegazer. very based and recommended.
more like black MID-i
anothernicemess (dj marcelle radio show)
tom ravenscroft radio 6 program
tokyo coolest sounds
I always ignore bands that bring their influences to close e.g the whole uk post-punk
I just check rym occasionally
I listen to some new albums. About the same amount as older ones. Alot of new metal out there though.
I probably haven't kept track of it for more than a decade.
