Catchy folk/ propaganda music.

No boring ass woody Guthrie singing about how sad it to be from Oklahoma while strumming his guitar. I want synthesisers, fast rhythms, weird ass instruments you’ve never heard before. I want shit that would make you want to get up and dance in your local town square with other third world peasants.

Is its leftist? cool. Is its advocating for the genocide of some ethnic minority or the establishment of a global caliphate? I don’t give shit as long as the music is fire.

hip hop 2000s vs now

I know this may sound like a boomer take but is it weird that I prefer sample based hiphop beats of the 90s and 2000s over the generic trap beats and soulless generated EDM style beats created by an executive at Atlantic records or something? Producers like Dre, J Dilla, Nujabes had 100% more rememberable beats than whatever lil <whoever> raps over today.

Why did sample based hiphop/rnb fall out of style? is the licensing just too expensive? Maybe this is why mixtapes are better than actual albums because they don't worry about profits.

Music plagarism should not be thing

Disregarding the idea of owning music and muh intellectual properly from a leftist

I don't understand how the fuck people who whine about these things expect millions of songs made throughout history in every part of the world won't inevitably end up sounding similar

I fucking hate this mindset. And 99% I can't even notice the similarity.

The only valid perspective about it I accept and understand is from the worker perspective where an indie artist can get their music stolen and profited off by somebody more famous and powerful since we live in capitalism and music can be capitalized on.

The ultimate purpose of music is supposed to make each other feel. I hate its commodification and the problems that has caused to it.

Also can anybody post me that apu staja picture where he's singing with headphones?

Ancient and Traditional music

>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

Vaporwave is ultimately a celebration, not a satire, of capitalism

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?

Musician General

Hey /leftypol/

I thought I'd make a general for any amateur or professional /leftypol/ musicians if there are any here. We can discuss your experiences, ask for or give advice, create resources, or just chat.

As for me, I am a hobbyist guitarist that's only been playing for about a year and a half; not even sure if I'm intermediate level yet lol. However, I can give tips or provide resources for anybody just starting out.

Red Metal

As an avid listener of metal, something that frustrates me is the prevalence of chuds and reactionaries in metal (especially black metal). The visibility of guys like Varg and Famine of Peste Noire infamy has colored the public perception of extreme metal as being the domain of edgelord fascists. What are some metal groups that could be said to be socialist, anarchist, or leftist in some manner?

To start things off, I'd highly recommend the Panopticon album "Kentucky," which is a BM album about the state's history with labor organizing among coal miners, as well as the coal industry's destruction of the state's natural beauty. It's not a perfect album by any means but the way it mixes BM with bluegrass is cool, plus it has an incredibly redpilled message.

chill hip hop thread

fellow zoomers get ITT. I'm making this thread for myself, since it's all I listen to these days. don't hesitate to recommend shit you like. it does not necessarily have to contain rap. anything in the area of trip hop, downtempo, lo-fi, chopped and screwed, gorillaz. you get the idea

some artists:
Knxwledge is a former soundcloud producer. he's the founder of the sound that YouTube calls "lo-fi hip hop" these days.
Mach Hommy, my current favorite rapper. possibly the greatest rapper of all time. just released a great album called Fete Des Morts.
MIKE. rapper and producer. makes a LOT of music which is mostly him rapping over his own beats.

some songs:

blessings. many many blessings.

Music Theory

I want to understand how you're supposed to play songs on piano. From what I've seen so far, you play the melody with one hand and with the other hand you play the chords, either as full chords or arpeggios. But how do you know which chords you have to play to fit a certain melody?

I already know a bit of music theory so I tried figuring it out on my own. I looked up Katyusha on piano to see which chords are played.


The song is in D minor, and they play the chords in this order:
Dmin x3
Amaj 2nd inversion x4 (Db E A)
Dmin x 2
Fmaj 1st inv. (C F A)
Gmin 1st inv. (D G Bb)
Dmin, Gmin 1st inv. , Dmin, Amaj inv. , Dmin.

I assume that some chords are inverted so that the transition between them is smoother.

They play the same melody on the right hand side throughout the video, but in the beginning they only play the root notes of the chords with their left hand, after that they play the chords in different ways, and then they play the complete triads. And this is my question, how do you know which chord progression fits over a melody?

I tried to see if the chord degrees had anything to do with it. The chords in the key of D minor should be: Dmin (i), Edim (ii dim), Fmaj (III), Gmin (IV), Amin (v), Bbmaj (VI), Cmaj (VII). I imagined in simpler songs like this one you only needed to play chords from the key, but here they use an Amaj (A Db E) instead of an Amin (A C E), and I listened to the song with both an Amin and an Amaj, and I think it sounds better with the Amaj. I guess because when a G is played in the melody over the Amaj it forms an Amaj7 which creates more tension.

I also tried writing the chord progression:
i - i - i - V
V - V - V - i
i - III - iv - i
iv - i - V - i
but I can't really tell if this has anything to do with the melody.

So if I take another simple melody like Bella Ciao for example, can I figure out what chords to play from just that?
Or do I just try to see which chords sound good over it?

I guess what I want to know is in which way the notes in the melody relate to the notes in the chord progression?
