Welcome to The Jukebox! In this thread, you can talk all about music.

Here's just a few guidelines:
  • We want people to talk about music in this thread. Don't just say what you're currently listening to or dump one song and leave. We're looking for actual discussion about music.
  • Be respectful of another's music tastes. It may not be your ideal style but everyone enjoys what they enjoy.
  • Please try to reply to the current topic if you can. It's not the end of the world if you can't as long as you are adding to the discussion.

A new feature of this thread is to let people recommended stuff to listen to, and then keep a small list in this post. If you want to Recommend a band or album you definitely have to talk about it like above, and then explain why you think more people should listen to it and why it should be listed as a recommendation.

Feel free to share where to stream a song or album for example Spotify, Soundcloud, Pandora, Amazon music.

You Won't Get What You Want by the band Daughters is probably one of my favorite albums to come out during the 2010s. I'd argue its more frightening than a lot of extreme metal that came out this decade (Although Nails and Full of Hell are pretty damn frightening) because of how potent the lyrics are when it comes to the themes of mental health. There's rarely if ever a vocal melody to speak of but Alexis's shouting is really compelling. Not only that but the band's fusion of various rock genres like Noise Rock, No Wave, Industrial Rock and more come together beautifully and instrumentally this album is unlike anything out there.

I bought this record on vinyl back in June and I got it in this lovely "London Fog" color. Sounds fantastic on my turntable.

What were some of your guys favorite albums of the decade?

Kelly Clarkson-Meaning of Life
Newsboys-God's Not Dead
Avril Lavigne-Head Above Water
Linkin Park-The Hunting Party
Avenged Sevenfold-The Stage
Probably more somewherez.

I've also lately been somewhat obsessed with TWEWY's soundtrack (the Switch version came out a couple years ago so I guess it sorta counts?), particularly the remix of Make or Break, NOISY NOISE, Someday, and Satisfy. So zetta catchy.

Legacy custom music


How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.
Every single level I will ever make in SMM2 will be easier than Ultra Necrozma.
I skimmed through the video and can't say it appeals to me too much but I can agree with the statement it's more frightening as the music has a very dark tone too it.

One of my personal favorite albums of the decade is Tim which is a posthumous studio album by Tim Bergling better known as Avicii. The story of how and why the album exists is really sad as Tim took his own life before finishing the vocals however during life made it clear that he wanted his music released postmortem if anything was to happen to him. His family worked with contributing artists that had previous worked with Tim to produce vocals based on his lyrics.

The album really is a beautiful send off for a tragic death.
RIP Tim

I remember when he died, that shit hurt. Even though EDM is kind of a tasteless genre these days his music really was something unique and special, even if you weren't the biggest fan of his stuff. I remember how I used to hate Wake Me Up given how often it was played but going back I love the song.

And if we're talking posthumous music releases, Good News by Mac Miller is a beautiful yet painful song to listen to. I've heard the rest of the album that this is from is pretty great, makes me happy to know that time and care was put into that album. Its a shame that most labels just exploit a dead artist's legacy for money, Lil Peep and XXXTENTACION (even though I don't really like the latter's music that much anymore) are being exploited to hell right now and I'm afraid they'll do the same shit to Juice WRLD.
I guess it all depends on the record label the artists are under and how much of their music the label owns vs the artist. A lot of labels are just money hungry though so it doesn't surprise me with the exploitation.
Been enjoying the hell out of this banger lately.

Rings of Saturn - Mental Prolapse

I actually saw this band live back in October but I was in a darker place mentally at the time so I didn't click with the band as well as I do now, since despite them being a death metal band they're not very dark or gloomy. They're just a band making fun music about aliens, sometimes that's all you need. I just ordered a vinyl copy of the album this song is off of and I'm looking forward to blasting it on my turntable.

Hopefully I can catch these guys live again because even if their music isn't all that substantive they're extremely talented and deserve more cred than they get.
i recently made a last.fm. there's not much there yet, but if you're interested in checking what i listen to you can friend me here (let me know who you are though).

getting really into messy female trap music. this is my current jam.

You should check out this beauty then!
I was browsing through my Pandora stations today to see what I haven't listened to for a while and rediscovered Maximum The Hormone and BABYMETAL which are both Japanese metal bands but both also have some more lighthearted music. I just wish I understood all the lyrics.
Last night I listened to American Football's LP1 and it was one of the most relaxing albums I've heard in a while. It's a great blend of emo and math rock, and the emo side of it isn't too whiny or pretentious. You have the typical whiny emo vocals everyone's familiar with but even then they're a bit more subdued and not as in your face as other emo bands (see Blink-182's "I Miss You"). There's definitely variety in the vocals as well, as on some tracks the lead singer takes a more soft and smooth approach, and sometimes the vocals almost remind me of the Beatles for some reason. It's a very nice vibe album and one I'll be returning to a lot.

EDIT: There's also some really nice uses of Saxophone on this record too that don't sound out of place at all, surprisingly.
Does anyone here like Queen music?

I have to say, Queen is one of the only bands that I like (I don't usually like songs with words).

I enjoy 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's music. Everything now just seems subpar.

--------------------
Sylvia Plath was born on October 27, 1932.
I think a better question is who doesn't like Queen.
Yes, who doesn't?

Queen has songs that are all different styles. This makes their music appealing to everyone.

I have a hard time coming up with my favorite song though.

Okay, while this isn't about the music in specific, I feel like here would be appropriate enough to talk about this, so... here goes lol

Yesterday I was looking through some concerts that was going on around here (Belo Horizonte/BH), and I found that a DJ by the name of Anderson Noise is going to appear at February 28th in a certain place at the city's capital, and honestly that's... pretty much the perfect one for me to go to lmao, especially with how much I wanted to go to those types of concerts haha

Now here's the problem: It starts pretty late at night (at 8 PM in specific), and I don't doubt that I'll arrive home late AF, but even worse is the fact that it's very far away from my home, so if I lose the money I have in any way, it's very likely I won't be able to come back home at all

So, like, is it even worth it for me to go there? Would it be worth the risk, or should I wait for something else to try going to (jazz concerts are another thing I wanted to go to here btw)? I'm really not sure honestly :V

(btw, I checked some of the dude's stuff yesterday too, it seems pretty good (tho I was pretty sleepy so I couldn't enjoy it as well); here's his Soundcloud if anyone is curious)

I think it depends on the public security of your location. But if it's something you really love, I think it would be great to go there; plus, meeting the real guy of your favourite artist would be a great experience.

Recently I noticed Tuyu released their first album やっぱり雨は降るんだね, which is a doujin one. I think these song are pretty awesome, but it doesn't avaliable on any streaming platforms as far as I know, and there are no way to perchase a digital copy of the album. It seems the only way to access the full album is purchasing the physical CD through their store, and import to my country via an transfer company. That means the shipping fees would be expensive.

Now I am considering if it still worth purchasing the album. The same thing happens on a lot of doujin albums which don't have record company and don't have digital releases.
I'm kind of surprised that even without a record label these groups choose to use a physical media rather than a digital one as in general it's more expensive including the cost of material and digital they'd have a larger audience who'd be willing to buy the album.
Welp, I pretty much wasted most of my money buying a lot of other things (including a new keyboard, which was actually my main goal all along) so naturally I couldn't go lol

I'm kind of glad by that tho, since I doubt that it would really go smoothly at all, and tbh, it might still be cool to try and check for other concerts around here; I already said that there's actually quite a bit of jazz concerts around here, so no matter what I should get my fair share of Culture™️ either way :P

I've seen this happen often in the more obscure, niche, underground scenes. There's plenty of people in the harsh noise wall scene, for example, who decide to limit their music's exposure to buyers of the physical medium. I've seen that for them, it's typically a choice based on aesthetics, which is often intensely intertwined with the musical experience itself in this genre.

(On a small semi-related tangent, I once had a 35-minute harsh noise recording of mine released on a cassette label... I never did receive my copy #fim{=_=} it's one of my favourite works ever though, still really proud of it.)

Yet I've also seen sporadic releases here and there, which too are limited to just physical releases (or technically digital too, but raised to a ludicrous price so nobody would actually buy it), that do it for the sake of preserving/protecting purity and warding off piracy. I'm less a fan of that because it's a weak stance, and in my opinion it detracts from the value of the music itself.

I've been to a few jazz concerts here and there (Jacob Collier being my absolute highlight, gonna see him again April 3rd and I'm super stoked), it's always a good time. Big bands, small groups, jazz house, smooth jazz, I don't care I love it.

Good on you that you went for the keyboard though. Going clubbing is a bit intimidating, and well, the keyboard will likely carry you further :P not to say that there's no value in clubbing, it's created some very lasting memories for me. I really miss doing it, but sadly for a few years I've not had any opportunity whatsoever to do it. There was one niche scene, the Dutch doomcore scene revolving around the Dark. Descent. and, to an extent, Noisj labels, in which I used to try to always attend events (I even DJ'd at one once in January of... 2015... my first and still only non-competition public DJ performance... I also released my only full-length album thus far on a Noisj sublabel). Created some lasting memories. Not crowded, respectful people, great crew who I hanged out with a bunch at some point as an awkward bystander, and just the most... amazing, relentlessly flooring music.
Ooh, a music thread! I bet Ms. Accord would like it.

First of all: Aside from Heartless, I always dig some new tracks from The Weeknd like Blinding Lights and After Hours (After Hours is hella long to be exact!).

Other than The Weeknd, you better check out the latest single from BTS: ON.

Oh, and Stupid Love from Lady Gaga herself.
