Epstein style politics
we deserve it tbh


It'd be easier to name the few that don't have entirely dumb or nonexistent political positions. I don't expect musicians to know anything about anything, except maybe how to express their emotions musically I guess.

With film however it's a different story because the film's ideology is more "in your face". In that case I even prefer pointless films that are just pure aesthetics over yet another regurgitation of what the authors read about "social issues" or "politics" in their preferred MSM.


Yeah, in a very frustrating way. Like he kinda gets it but missed the point anyways.
He's done songs and videos about the struggle of poor immigrants. He did a video supporting Assange. Stuff like that. I'd say he's very class conscious, but is missing the vocabulary to make it radical.
Nice. That's pretty cool. I just feel left out from gay circles sometimes, and was being cheeky :P
Mecano is usually played in weddings and some other scenarios, so it's not actually particularly gay.


And heaps of other black metal bands probably, tbh.


Mark had some good takes, but he was just trying to be too reactionary most of the time

Are there any good MIDIs of leftist music? The ones I find are absolute crap.


Why don't you make them yourself? Import notation into MIDI software and done.


MIDI got an update to 2.0 last year

the tldr is 7bit to 32 bit resolution upgrade for pitch, volume, etc , 2way communication for input devices and much more memory for storing sample notes. And it doesn't break backwards compatibility.

If you care about digital music making this is where you need to be.

I feel like a poser enjoying music with lyrics I don't understand.

behold, the only instrumental to be banned from American radio


If you mean foreign lyrics, I don't feel like a poser, though I wish I could understand what the song says, mainly to be able to sing along. (vid related)
If you mean 2deep4me lyrics in a language I speak, then yeah, a little bit, but it's not a big deal, especially if I'm not going to interact with fans who understand the deeper meaning.

They just weren’t

Andrew Patrick Wood was an American musician. He was the lead singer and lyricist for the alternative rock bands Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. Wood formed Malfunkshun in 1980 with his older brother Kevin Wood on guitar and Regan Hagar on drums.

Oh yeah they're pretty mediocre, Do The Evolution was sort of a One Hit Wonder helped by their excellent Music Video.


Pearl Jam is one of the greatest live bands I've ever seen.
Also, their best albums are No Code and Vitalogy. I think they are "overhated" because people only listen to Ten and then compare it to the best works of Nirvana, Alice in Chains and Soundgarden, which all are way better than Ten, obviously.


Love Battery was a good band to come from the scene. I don't hear much about them. Interesting blend of genres. Pearl Jam is tough to listen to.


A similar Music Video in the same vein is Disturbed - Land of Confusion


Nice, I got based triple 7s

Yes, yes, it's ANOTHER thread about hauntological shit. But isn't vaporwave, by the process of aestheticization inherent in it, ultimately a celebration of all the soulless corporate trash it purports to poke fun at? I realize I'm generalizing somewhat and not all vaporwave necessarily has anything, positive or negative, to do with capitalism. But if you listen to something like Ferraro's Far Side Virtual, or Luxury Elite's TV Party, doesn't it conjure an image that seems genuinely desirable, even if it's empty? Even at its most uncanny (like a lot of the "broken transmission" subgenre) doesn't it aestheticize its subject matter and thus make it more bearable if not outright enjoyable? Isn't that why the aesthetic has taken off to begin with?

Is there any way to really pull off this "ironic" approach to music without ultimately producing either a celebration of what you're trying to attack or something that nobody actually wants to listen to? If we wanted to turn this method against capitalism could we instead create nostalgia not for the ultracapitalist 80s but for times of greater cooperation and a genuinely functioning society? Would there even be any point to doing so?

>I guess Marx and Engels aren't real socialists considering they were big fans of classical music and many composers from their period and before.

link to their spotify liked pages?
seriously tho what artists did they like


I don't know. It gets more obvious with subgenres like mallsoft which seems to intentionally give feeling of emptiness that consumerism doesn't fill, anxiety caused by pressure it induces and gently reminds the listener of decaying capitalist infrastructure and that capitalism itself too could fall. Though that's just me pretentiously saying it sounds like haunted malls.


you realize theres like 100 different subgenres right?
how is this shit a "critique of capitalism" or related to politics at all


Here's the catch: even if the image is genuinely enjoyable, vaporwave is mostly about a lost future that capitalism vaguely promised rather than about any period of actually existing capitalism. You might well say it promises a vision of a desirable capitalist "future", but that "future" is the future of the long-passed. It's a future capitalism promised, something which was designed to be desirable but which never had the discomfort of becoming reality and suckin-
oh i've already written this post lol slow boards >>1260



>Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, visionary master of reggae, dies aged 85
WTF.. the upsetter.. I thought he'd live forever bros.. :(


Rest in peace.


85 bros, he was so young
Fr though, one of the most influential musicians of the past sixty years. Always forget he produced Heart of the Congos too, maybe the GOAT reggae album


What are his best works, I only know random songs.
