As a black man, I find soft rock to be far more romantic than urban R&B.

I find early urban R&B (1984-1994) to be too flirty and/or too preachy.

Soft rock, the instrumentation is all organic. You can hear the soft earthy tones of the acoustic guitar along side the electric guitar with the piano and woodwind instruments playing alongside in the background. It's soft and sweet while being equally potent.
The lyrics are sincere and humble but never sycophantic

It's an official AU that I am a 1970s soft rock/R&B/jazz fusion musician with an ensemble.
One of my albums is gonna be a literal symphonic suite with a twist of jazz, rock and funk.

My dream band will have a
acoustic guitar
electric guitar
acoustic piano

Good afternoon, leftypol. Time for some sunshine pop from ČSSR


A lot of it has to do with Mike Love positioning them as "America's Band" in the 80s.

>The Beach Boys are the most dismissed rock bands just because of their early material about surfing.

I agree in my heart that they deserve more recognition, but my head knows it's kind of deserved since their catalog swings wildly in quality after Pet Sounds lol

At the very least, Sunflower, Holland, and Love You deserve some reappraisal and rediscovery, as well as Pacific Ocean Blue.

(As an aside, Brian is still somehow the king of hooks even with his most recent material.)


Soft rock and Rand B are supposed to be romantic?


That's why the best bands never last more than ten years.
They've already evolved and said what they needed to say.


It's the implication, but yea I see your point.


There was one thread ages ago. Post good and/or obscure mashups.

Do autists like music more than normies? I listen to music 90 mins a day easily, and thats not background noise, thats sitting down and listening. Never heard of normies doing this.

Worse than that, it's not even safe from our vacuous driveby sage post whose Shift key is broken.


I don't think so. I listen to music as background noise most of the time.


have more lowercase posting


sounds like it was fun

The 3-people band consists of Helen Love – the person, the band’s titular vocalist/songwriter, Sheena on guitar, and rotating members on keyboards (used to be Roxy, then Mark, now it is Ricardo Autobahn). The first Helen Love song I’ve heard is probably “Debbie Loves Joey" – and I hope this amazing tune set the stage for the rest of this post.


“Debbie Loves Joey” perfectly capture the essence of Helen Love, which is a twee, lo-fi (with regards to production quality, not hip-hop beats), bubblegum pop paean (it’s a real word – look it up) song referencing Joey Ramone and innocent teenage hot summer days. Helen Love (the persona) lives in world of perpetual summer filled with teens chewing bubblegums, listening to the MC5, LOVE; KISS; RUN; SING; SHOUT; JUMP, swimming in Swansea Bay, dancing in punk-rock discotheque with glitters, playing Super Kay guitars. This humorous, self-aware, teenage twee, anti-grow up energy is the kind of energy that is conveyed through their songs.

4. Bubblegum Kilers and Cardiff City Superstars (the 2000s)

In 2005 Helen Love released an update to “Girl About Town” called “Continuing Adventure of Girl About Town”.

The semi-autobiographical “Continuing Adventure of Girl About Town” contained a hint that the band is maturing. There is a hint of melancholy and longing, as Helen gets older and not the bubblegum punk rock teenager she once was.

Now I live on the fourteenth floor of tower block estate

And when I’m drunk I see the lights shine over Swansea Bay

I wish I was back…

Back in the New York groove.

5. (2010s-present)

The band still released tons of indie bangers. Electronica and disco synths have started to seep in, for the better. For example, “I Love Indiepop”, “Rockaway Beach”, “It’s My Club” are all modern bangers.

However, it is also probably not a /leftypol/ post without some class-struggle analysis. Starting with “Our Mum and Dad” from “Day-Glo Dreams”, whose lyrics took me by surprise

"Dad built new houses for George Wimpey Estates. That’s where he first learnt his trade. And his hands were full of blisters blood and dirt. And his life was set in love and faith and work.”

“She worked part-time, 3 days a week at the bank. Saving us bottle tops and Green Shield stamps. That damn Ted Heath he don’t understand.”

”Our mum and dad they turned older and grey. I watched Margaret Thatcher take their jobs away”

“And we pin our hopes on things that are so frail. We try so hard but fabulously fail…”

6. This is My World (2022)

Helen Love’s latest album is “This is My World” which released this year to rave reviews. There is less bubblegum punk rock there, but there is a lot of inward reflections as it is a lockdown album. Their songwriting is as on-point as ever. The album starts with “My Seaside Town” which is a bittersweet song about Swansea. “Clearing Out Mum’s House” is a beautiful song about the experience of losing her mother and clearing her out her house. It is a tear-jerker song about memory and emotion. The band saved the most poignant song for last, “This is My World” It is a stamp of where the Helen – “the girl about town” is in 2022. It contains honest admissions about her best and worst personal moments.

"“I lost my heart on long hot summer night // There’s been some dark days I’m scared being alone // I walked in sunshine next to Joey Ramone // I stood in cemetery as giant tears fell // I said goodbye at the toweling of the bell”

Surprisingly, it includes a reference to the '85 UK miners strike.

“I stood with miners in strike of ’85. We fought the government and somehow survived.”

Helen Love is a cool band, I like them a lot




Sounds good, anon. Brought a bit of smile to my face. But it's also a reminder than people have been doing fangirl bubblegum pop forever.

the internet turned me onto this stuff when i was like 16
i think it’s terrible now


I used to be sort of active in the local freak folk scene, though it wasn't very big. I liked "Drip Drip" and "Keep Your Soul" but have generally never known much about the style and kind of just got sorted with it because I played weird acoustic music with a lot of rock/psych influence.


That was pretty good


i need more of this shit. i love folk punk but this is different, more rhythimic, more beautiful.


Holy mother of bangers, this is very good, post more recs, psych folk is ok too


its just a thread where we talk about good Fade To Black is.

And more of this subgenre!


Does anyone know where I can find a reliable flac source for Tresor and Underground Resistance tracks? Soulseek is failing me.
