1. Stars of the Lid – And Their Refinement Of The Decline
Some people might argue that Stars Of The Lid’s unique work hasn’t changed much over the years. But listen closely, and you’re likely to notice the progression in their compositions. Without ever telling you what to feel, these delicately crafted sounds are able to evoke a whole range of different emotions, depending on each listener. Every little change becomes a grand and sweeping event and despite its common classification as background music, it demands your full attention.
This is, without a doubt, the most compelling and rewarding listening experience I’ve had this year.
2. A Broken Consort – Box Of Birch
I read about Richard Skelton and his Sustain Release label in some Wire issue about a year ago. Although my interest was piqued, I completely forgot about him until I came across this release on ‘The Cookshop’ blog. Needless to say, I was in awe and craving for more after being sucked into this magical world for the first time.
4 Abr 2007, 0:17 de cogsturningive seen several of these around and thought id do one, cause theyre fun to read and ive been very nostalgic lately anyhow.
childhood: i was raised on country music. my father was a country/bluegrass musician and my mother was obviously a fan of such things as well so that is what i knew as a child. not too much current/popular country, more like Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson. that and random ballad and cheeseball artists (which may explain some of my current favs) like Whitney Houston and Rod Stewart. if my father hadnt of died when i was three, i probably would have ended up even more heavily involved in country.
middle school: 7th grade was when i can say i really starting paying attention to music, more then likely cause everyone else did and i wanted to connect more with my friends. at the time most of my friends were in band and like ska, punk, and swing. so i had quite a bit of exposure to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy,Green Day, and The Brian Setzer Orchestra throughtout middle school. …
22 Mar 2007, 6:55 de cogsturningso..your supposed to list your top 50 artists and talk about how you came across them. this is gonna be a great time killer for me.
i first saw them on kouhaku utagassen 2005/2006. i thought they were some crappy gimmick band and proceeded to ignore. sometime later i ended up with a copy of 愛 羅 武 勇 that i didnt listen to, i dont think i even unzipped it. i somehow found myself on one of thier videos on youtube during the worst most guilt-ridden time of my life and it made me laugh when i was so miserable.
when i started listening to 氣志團 the whole of my music taste changed and i started getting interested in artists that id seen connected to them. one of his songs was used in kishidan elvis was our sempai fake backstory thing and i thought it was the cheesiest thing id ever heard. that and i had no idea what the sex of the singer was 6_6
i actually got interested in him after seeing shimotsuma monagatari/kamikaze girls. after hearing him mentioned i read up on him a bit and got terribly curious.
