I know I've been playing that ablum so much lately.

batreleaser 07.31.2008 04:23 PM

ive supported weezy for five years now, but, i must say, the cartert 3 got old fast. i like his mixtapes, especially the inspiration and da drought. thats where all his really wierd nutty lyrics are. to me hes an mf doom wierdo rapper that hides behind the southern gangsta image. being on a major has help him back for so long. imagine what he could do if he worked with dudes like madlib, peanut butter wolf, elp, hed be unstoppable, best rapper alive with no irony.

anyways, im listening to

lustmord-heresy

the silly western guy's repeated hes my favorite band posts got me in a lustmord mood.

explain post-rock...?
That has to be one of the dumbest terms used to describe music.
I mean some people think rock died in the fifties? does that mean anything after 1959?
Its as tupid ass vauge term. Because technically rock is still made.

Um...long songs, usually, builds to a climax then fades off. Can happen during the course of a song or entire album. Can sometimes be wall-of-sound. Lots of stuff going on or really sparse.

Um...I have no fucking clue, let terriblcanyons explain.

Post-rock is usually described as climactic instrumental ambient rock with traces of electronica and drone elements. Usually characterized by loud drums and harmonizing electric guitars and often joined by string quartets.

The term really has nothing to do with what you just stated... it just means what it means, I guess. Kinda like no-wave.

viewtiful_alan 07.31.2008 11:36 PM

Oh ok.
haha sorry for sounding like an idiot but I've just never liked that term.
I can't tell if it sounds like something I would like or not... who would you most say embodies the genre?

Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky, Mono, The Album Leaf, World's End Girlfriend.

I warn you though, once you listen to it you'll be hooked.

viewtiful_alan 07.31.2008 11:40 PM

Hm I'll probably try and check it out. Always open to something new and it does sound pretty interesting.
