    Bossa Nova can be beautiful, profound. This is about sadness (saudade) & it's perfect.

    Not me. I make a point of not hanging out with serial killer cult leaders.

    Watched "Mid90's". I found it to be a very good movie, and it has some amazing music

    These bring up someone in the audience to play with you moments are nice. (Yes, aware that sometimes it's staged, but I'd like to think that happens less than what ppl think)

    "Strobelite" from Humanz

    For what it is worth, here's the DR info for Gorillaz' LPs and Digital Downloads:

    Code:
    | Album         | LP DR | DD DR |
    |---------------|-------|-------|
    | Gorillaz      | 11    | 7     |
    | Demon Days    | 12    | 8     |
    | Plastic Beach | 12    | 7     |
    | Humanz        | 11    | 7     |
    | The Now Now   | 11    | 7     |
    The LP DR is from my own needle drops of the albums.
    Technics -> SL-1210GR -> Soundsmith Otello -> PS Audio NuWave Phono Converter -> Captured in Standard Rate DSD, very lightly processed in Vinyl Studio and converted to FLAC 88.2/24.

    I imagine those lines were done in hugely thick magic marker by a nearsighted gastric surgeon. "First we'll take out the gall bladder--over here, then the appendix--over there." That's when this dude flipped out & split...

    Timeless jazz modernism. It could have been recorded yesterday. These amazing musicians are all gone now.

    Haha, glad you liked it. IME it's good for that :p

    Math Rock has always sort of been a thing... really has roots in proto-prog and minimalism, though born of indie rock. Really a pretty diverse genre, though it all kind of has that feel where you know it when you hear it. Lots of counterpoint and odd meter, angular melodies... there are phrasing patterns you can't un-hear. It's like more structured post-rock. Kind of a cult deal, but very much loved.

    Pretty sure it's even bigger in Japan, though I don't follow it too much. I know of it only because of its more recent overlap with progressive rock and metal. Covet seems to be at the top of a lot of people's lists. Yvette Young, the guitarist is pretty talented. She has a bunch of solo stuff that's mostly just her singing over really wholesome and skillful guitar and piano. It's very personal and pure, in ways a lot of music just isn't. They all just make good relaxing music, with a bit of a music nerd twist, but none of the pompousness.

    So yeah, Covet, Math Rock, Yvette Young. Good stuff for sure.

    If you like that, you might try Chon. Little more technical, but they're almost like Covet's other half. Covet is about songs. Chon does the same things as Covet, but with more proggy jams and less post-rock styling. Though it's still very structured and accessible.


    And then people who enjoy those two bands tend to also dig Polyphia, with their addition of poppy energy and bravado. Same type of stuff, but with more swagger and playfulness.

    No problem! Lotta crossover... they all sort of share a listener pool, I think. Sort of a de facto movement, different groups converging on a niche by chance. But Polyphia is probably the most experimental, and much more leaning towards virtuosity and sickly catchy melodies. I can't take them in high doses, but their catalog has a lot of gems. They have a lot of songs that make you want to play them over and over again, until you're sick. Like Easter candy, maybe, hah.


    This song reminds me of working retail and I like it for that? Is Debbie supposed to be a depressed waitress? :p

    Here's a crossover I found, Yvette Young did a song with Scale the Summit called "Mass":
