There are little glimpses of interesting melodies that are immediately drowned in the pale, metallic sound, the awful penchant for overdoing the reverb and the less than excited vocals. *Shrugs*

most children overrate their own times is why

presentism/lack of perspective

I thought it was not quite as lovely and playful as Stratosphere, but it had its moments. I get your sentiment though. Will relisten some time.

Tried to find music by a band named Penus and instead ended up with all kind of links I wasn't looking for :p

So I settled instead for two EPs of Dark Dark Dark, followed by two albums of Anonymous Choir, their first album aptly named II and the 2015 edition of their Leonard Cohen covers. Good stuff for a drowsy Saturday afternoon.

Their sophomore album. Dropped in June apparently, I had no clue. Loved their first outing and so far I'm digging this as well.

When howling doesn't work
An experimental classical composition involving two labradors!

This comes from a Dutch TV show that has been on TV for 30 years on Sunday mornings and will sadly cease to exist :mad: It showed all kind of different music, classical, jazz, world music, experimental . Often not my kind, but often also amazing. Some name dropping from the world music category for you to find out from artists in countries you have never heard of: Trang Ang Flowers Group, Sona Jobareh, Woodabe Peul, Hanggai, Huun-Huur-Tu, Souer Marie Keyrouz.

Many years ago, there was a classical piece with two double basses that was so amazing that I bought a CD of it, and then lost it again. It might have been Bach. Hope I can recall what piece it was ...

Yeah, this band is great!

I actually successfully got some people into Sem Bênção/Sem Crença this year by playing “Escola das Ruas” for them.

I also missed the release of Romã initially. I thought all they released this year was an EP until probably end of the summer.

Good stuff, man.

“You just spread some reputation around before giving it to Antagonize again”

What a silly rule. Imagine if social media limited likes
