Shayfer James is extremely talented and his songs have a hipster jazz rebel vibe


one for any dirty goths if there are any perusing this imageboard🙂

She's got a blog. Goth musicians all seem to read a lot. Nick Cave is another one, though he seems to lift stuff directly evening spreads itself against the sky nicked from T. S. Eliot I reckon Sophor Aeternus either is more original or uses more obscure sources.

>Ancient Roman Music (118 Minutes)

authentic-sounding instruments that ancient peoples would've played. no orchestras, electronics or other modern "twists"

no christian, celtic/irish or "european medieval" music. they're too structured to be grouped together with ancient or other traditional music and they are so numerous they belong in different thread

if you embed a youtube link plz post the song title / description or no one will click your contextless link

it's a lot of guesswork/improvization after you made replicas of the instruments with a very involved process of examining papyrus fragments containing melodies, knowing which newer music theory rules/conventions to absolutely rule out, knowing the spread and influence of these empires and what they integrated from conquered subjects, knowing which existing civilizations / groups of people in the regions that used to be provinces of these empires didn't change their music over the centuries as much compared to others to attempt to backtrace and so on, all to figure what it couldn't have sounded like and what it most likely sounded like




Hey nerd I need your help for something plz
Music embedded is obviously borrowing from a musical tradition related to the music in OP what the fuck is it, and how did it end up so similar given the people who made this track I'm assuming never listened or studied directly the music in OP
Or am I wrong even on that?
It's driving me nuts trying to figure it out and I don't even know where to start to figure it out myself plz help plz

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?

Creating nostalgia to a time we cant go back to anyway isnt helpful




Does this not miss the alternative: That its very desirability is the attack? That the problem with the system is not the idealized bliss of consuming America Online using your NTT DoCoMo Pocket PostPet that you bought in The Mall, but the fact that this reality was never delivered. Faintly proposed, occasionally, accidentally, but always actually absent. Even Japan didn't get to experience it. Vaporwave is a technological and cultural equivalent of David Steel ("From rising hope to elder statesman without any intervening period whatsoever."), something literally nobody has ever lived but a great number are familiar with.

So then you think: Insofar as I desire this, even if the desire is consumerist (and we may say "objectively wrong") and so on, this desire could not ever be met, would not ever be met, and will not ever be met. The system which promises an infinite multitude of market choice cannot and will not give me a specific car-crash of early CGI, the good 1% of the californian ideology, Japanese proto-Y2K advertisements, Korean Pokemon translations, and Mac OS9 memories from school which is partially unique to myself while having enough commonality with similar confabulations in the minds of others to birth a label.

For actual 80s nostalgia one would be better looking at Synthwave. Although it only appropriates one 80s style among many, it's something with some precedent in an actual period of history and so winds up taking a more reactionary bent to Vaporwave's vague progressiveness.

For hypercontextualized technocratic Britain circa 1960-70 where witches lurk behind every set of tower flats and where benevolent (yet haunting) social(ist?) planners watch from afar, try hauntology as a genre. (But here I would say the aim is again not quite nostalgia: The whole thing is, of course, the haunting of the present by the ghost of a future which everyone knew was coming but which never actually came.)


By your logic, liking clasical music would be a celebration of monarchy. 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.


Vaporwave may certainly be celebrating capitalism, But Sovietwave sure as hell does not

Post calming, gentle, music ITT. Currently, I’m really into this song called “Bleecker Street,” by Simon and Garfunkel.


It kinda gives me nostalgia for a time I never experienced, like the peak of the American Empire during the 1950s and early 1960s, when the Soviet Union was strong, and there was a decent welfare state, and no climate change, and everything just seemed … better, I guess. Here’s a really beautiful cover of it btw.

Lmao that dude literally looks like a cartoon character in real life



In the night of Tammisaari, the twinkling of the stars are not visible, there the whips and bayonets stick from belts on each side. They want to show their masters how to beat those who have already been beaten down. So they fulfill the task that their masters gave them meticulously.

Under the whip, only few are bent, only a few without strength are exhausted from battles. We walk straight after all this, even though the herd of greyhounds beat us. Go back no step, the night is darker there.

This is not arrogance, nor is it defiance of fate. We walk the path of battles and will always remember: our class is the creator of everything, and the battle for it is enormous. It's also the protection of our battle, that's why the sky is so safe.

Don't worry our class is up, we will never let you down. The struggle in front of us is noble, this is the way we go. The vanguard of us, it inspires the struggle and the victims on the path of the struggles it teaches to give.

In the night of Tammisaari, the flame of hate still flares. Not in the hard work of a slave, our forces should not fall. With our class side by side we will give the last blow. Down with the oppressive parasites, down with their dark executors!

What is this song about? They keep singing about capital


The capital raises the rents and the state raises the benefits
Then you can cheat a little with the ironclad wage laws
And even pay a lower salary than the price of food and rent
Because the state is all too happy to help when the cost of living becomes far too high

Side by side, together they help each other
The state and the capital, they sit in the same boat
But they are not the ones who row, who row so the sweat runs
And the whip that cracks doesn’t even tickle their fat necks

The building of the day care system is regulated by the business cycle
Then women are given their place in the economic structure
A cheap labour force reserve, on hand when the factories whistle
Pushed back again by lack of resources, if the wheel of profitability suddenly slows

There was also a very famous punk cover of this song by the band Ebba Grön named Staten & Kapitalet (State & Capital):
It reached high on the Swedish charts and the album is kind of a cult classic in Sweden to this day.
Here's another song from the same album called Beväpna Er (Arm Yourselves) written by their anarchist bassist:

Lyrics translated:
Yes I, I hate the whole bourgeoisie
yes I, I hate the whole royalty
yes we, we will arm ourselves
yes we, we will arm ourselves

Yes I, I swear from my heart
