Goldfrapp’s impressive variety

Let’s talk about just how amazing Goldfrapp is with their breadth of work.

If you don’t know, Goldfrapp is an English electronic Duo made up of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory. They’ve made 7 albums since 2000. They make some of the best, most under appreciated music I’ve ever heard. They are so niche because they change their sound so drastically album to album, but that’s part of what makes them SO good. While they’d be more popular with a signature sound, they wouldn’t be as remarkable as they are now.

It took a while for me to expand into their full discography but it’s been the most rewarding experience growing to love them all. If you don’t know them, hopefully this can get you started. If you are a fan, I’d love to hear your thoughts, too!

I was hooked with their pop hits like Strict Machine and Ooh La La which are very dancey and fun. They go all in on the house-y repetition of a catchy synth melody. These songs are often referred to as electro clash. Other like this are Train, Satin Chic, and Systemagic

Thea is an example of their slower music which usually has a slow-burn buildup to it. Lots of layering that creates an ethereal vibe. A good example of this with an uptempo song is Everything Is Never Enough. Other slow-jams to check out would be Faux Suede Drifter, Drew and Hairy Trees

They are most well knows for their electronic music but that didn’t stop them from going acoustic. A&E is their best known song on their acoustic album (which is currently being reissued on vinyl, btw!) Cologne Cerrone Houdini is another great track off that record.

They are quite experimental at times, and even got their start with a surreal kind of alien sound. Lovely Head is what got them attention in the beginning. This album has a bond-y quality to it and a sound that borders of retro and avant guarde. Very dreamy! They often use Alisons voice more as an instrument, which is most notable in VoiceThing

There’s a lot to discover, and they really helped diversify my taste in music.

Dead People With Something To Say 1.0: John Lennon

Following the stressful Let It Be sessions (that would not be mixed into the album we know as Let It Be for another 2 years) Lennon called it quits.

McCartney’s instant response was “well if you’re not announcing it to the press it didn’t really happen did it?” And begged Lennon to let the group record one final effort to wrap up the legacy the group had created.

Thus Abbey Road.

Possibly the only Beatle album to showcase Harrison’s songwriting more than Lennon or McCartney’s.

Here you can hear Lennon breaking the album down track by track. Notice his distaste for the latter halves medley. In his opinion Abbey Road was half a record and half a mish mash of tying up loose ends.

It really is largely indicative of his feelings towards the group as a whole as of 1969.

1969 also brought about the first solo endeavours from Lennon, the first in the form of “Give Peace A Chance” which was recorded on the 1st of June that same year at one of John and Yoko’s famous Bed-Ins.This period of time, post Abbey Road and pre Lennon’s first solo album, would see John and Yoko tour the world on a political mission to bring about world peace through a series of non violent demonstrations supplemented with musical projects to further back up their points.

The bed ins, as they sound, consisted of John and Yoko sitting in a bed at the Queen Elizabeth hotel in Montreal Quebec waiting for anyone from the press that wanted to question them. They allowed any persons to ask any questions and entertained many famous names during their residency in Canada such as Timothy Leary, Allen Ginsburg and Petula Clarke who all contributed to the “Give Peace A Chance” recording. September of that year saw Lennon kicking his heroin dependency that he had picked up over the past year due to the increasing skepticism surrounding him and Yoko. This led him to write the song “Cold Turkey” which detailed his withdrawal symptoms and also showcased some of Yoko’s mu

A request to collaborate for a list of albums missing from the streaming services (mainly Spotify)

Most people seem to fully assume that Spotify is entirely comprehensive which of course is completely false due to the lack of alternative masters and bonus tracks (the Japanese release, some iTunes bonus tracks, Tidal exclusives) alone, but even prominent artists can have quite large gaps in their discographies. Black Sabbath lacks four studio albums! Killer Mike (from Run the Jewels) doesn't have his early releases available, despite heavy chart success (top-10 on Billboard 200 at best). Some such as Yoko Ono and The KLF still reject streaming.

The list could easily be extended to over 1000 with video game OSTs alone which are still mainly sold as DLC on Steam and standalone on Bandcamp. A lot of albums which have never been digitized is likely missing, especially if the artist has no presence in the CD-/streaming-era. Foreign content may generally have worse availability, as could jazz, classical and various art music.

Here's the incomplete listing (which I won't update or maintain), dumped without much formatting (the order is artist | album):

Guide to $uicideboy$(with links!)

Guide to $uicideboy$

Created by /u/fuck-the-population & /u/VeNoid for /r/G59

INTRODUCTION:

Fairly often in threads where the boy$ get brought up I see people asking the same question, “Where do I start to get into $uicideboy$?”. This guide has been created to answer this question. We have included a roadmap of albums for new listeners to guide them through some projects so they can get a feel for the $uicideboy$. Another way to get familiar with the boy$ is to listen chronologically from the earliest to latest project, and in this guide we do just that, highlighting notable tracks along the way. Although this will probably soon be out of date because of how prolific the boy$ are, it should still provide a good starting point, and by the time you’ve listened to everything in here you’ll be enough of a fan to catch up on the new releases yourself.

BACKSTORY

The $uicideboy$ consists of two cousins from New Orleans who go by $crim and Ruby Da Cherry. They grew up in the 7th Ward, New Orleans where they got into music at an early age. Before $uicideboy$, Ruby played guitar, drums, and bass in local of punk bands whereas Scrim got into DJing at 13 eventually gaining a residency at a club. Through his DJing, Scrim started to host mixtapes for local rappers. He didn’t start producing until he was 19, and started rapping later on after Ruby convinced him. For a while before joining up as $uicideboy$ they worked together on a couple of solo projects on their record label, G*59, however, none of these took off. The first song they did together, before “$uicideboy$”, was “$moke a $ack” on $crim’s project “Patron Saint of Everything Totally Fucked” in 2013.

The $uicideboy$ music is heavily influenced by older dirty south acts like Memphis group Three Six Mafia. Whom they sample in a majority of their songs. As well as acts from their hometown like the Hot Boys and other early Cash Money artists. Much of the themes in the boy$ music center around subject matter similar to Three Six Mafia such as satanism and drug dealing/use. (for a deeper look at their musical influences, check out this guide to Memphis hip hop and this guide to New Orleans hip hop) The other, most prevalent, themes in their music are those of depression, drug addiction, and suicidal t

A Future Funk Theory

I have spent four years developing my hypothesis. I have spent countless hours poring over research. I have listened to Yung Bae's entire discography. All this has led me to believe the following: Yung Bae did not produce the EP "Honey // I Want Your Love". This theory is mainly supported by the fact that the style present in the EP does not fit with the rest of his work. For starters, both songs are heavily chopped and screwed. Both songs sound somewhat different from their samples. When compared with Yung Bae's other releases (Bae, Bae 2, Japanese Disco Edits, etc.), you notice the difference. The other releases are songs with minimal edits, chopping and changes in tempo. Some songs are just funk tracks with a kick and a snare on it, nothing else. While the Japanese Disco Edits Trilogy gets a pass, the Bae series is a prime culprit. "Fly With Me" and "Suede" are good examples of laziness. All of his releases with the exception of the EP sound similar. The outlier that is "Honey // I Want Your Love" just doesn't. All this brings me back to my main point. Why would Yung Bae release two great examples of manipulating the sample enough at the beginning of his career then just stop putting effort into his tracks? My answer to this is that he had someone else produce the EP for him. He then published it as his own.

Thanks for reading.

[DISCUSSION] My Pop Essential Albums List: Version 2

A True Pop Essentials List, Version 2


The last time I made one of these was about a year ago and I did it in 2 days because of a spontaneous conversation I had with /u/theallrightgatsby. This time, I've taken around three weeks spread out over a few months, and put more thought into it as well.

I've done my best to compile a list of albums that, if you listen to front-to-back, will give you a perfectly crisp view of what pop music is, what it was, and what it could be in the future (though, as you'll see with the drastic change that's happened throughout the course of pop history, this is very difficult to predict).

There are 179 albums here. For artists who are sufficiently important but don't have a solid album-length body of work, a "Greatest Hits" record has been used. Hyperlinked to every decade header, you'll find a collage of all the albums in that decade for your bookmarking purposes if you'd rather view them like that.

>Every album here, in my opinion, meets one or more of four criteria:

>1. Too popular to ignore (e.g. Nevermind)

>2. Incredibly influential (e.g. The Man-Machine)

>3. Incredibly high-quality pop album (e.g. Make It Big)

>4. High-quality album exemplary of a pop sub-genre that deserves recognition (e.g. Take Off Your Pants and Jacket)

One last note, I think it's silly to call an album that isn't even 3 years old "essential". For this reason, my list only goes up to 2014. Carly stans will have to wait a year before she is up for her first ballot.

Before I talk anymore, let's get to the albums themselves.


##1950s

Year Artist Album Genre Highlight
1948 Rosemary Clooney Essential Rosemary Clooney traditional pop & big band "Mambo Italiano"
1954 Nat "King" Cole Unforgettable traditional pop & jazz "Answer Me, My Love"
1955 Frank Sinatra In The Wee Small Hours blues "Mood Indigo"
1956 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley rock'n'roll & blues "Blue Suede Shoes"

If I told you my favorite albums, would you recommend more music to me?

I think I trust this subreddit musically more than any other. Frank is also one of my favorites and I love the vibe. If you want to suggest me music, any music, that would be awesome!! It's such a specific feeling that's so hard to find more of it.

Albums I love (mostly in order):

Frank Ocean: Channel Orange, Blond, Chanel, Biking, etc.

Anderson .Paak: primarily Malibu

--NxWorries: Link Up & Suede

Kanye West: Life of Pablo, Dropout, Late Registration

Chance the Rapper: Coloring Book (and some of Acid Rap)

Khalid: American Teenager

Isaiah Rashad: A Sun's Tirade

Tyler, the Creator: Flower Boy

Kid Cudi: Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin', Man on the Moon: The End of Day

The Black Panther soundtrack (incl. Vince Staples, SZA, the Weeknd, etc. They're all faves, and fave artists)

Aminé: Good For You

Kendrick Lamar: discography

Drake: Views and More Life

There are too many to list!! But I think this gives a good overview of what I primarily listen to. I used to listen to bands like Animal Collective, Yeasayer, Dirty Projectors, Sufjan Stevens (I still listen to him tbh). There's my background. Do you have any music you love that you'd like to share?

Edit: where do you all listen to Endless besides YouTube?

15+ British bands from the 90s that're still around

A little info on 15 popular British bands whose album debut was in the 90s and are still around + some more at the bottom of the list including those that re-united. More modern British indie/rock alongside these is posted at /r/UKbands if anyone's interested.

Manic Street Preachers – 12 albums since 1992

Few bands can rival the work ethic of this Welsh band who despite having their guitarist/lead-songwriter 'dissapear' in 1995, keep putting out consistent albums with energetic/emotional/angsty songs. Their 3rd album, The Holy Bible from '94, is a masterpiece both lyrically and musically...some of its references are dated but its anger can still resonate with younger generations from today. It has a disturbing/chilling catchy sound that makes your 90s grunge bands sound like pop. Their follow-up work was a bit more radio friendly and good stadium rock especially with the hit A Design For Life. Singer James Dean Bradfield also put out a pretty good solo album and their live shows are definitely worth checking even if you can only see them online. If you want a 90s band that has an actual voice and doesn't sing about the superfluous and also having a big rich rewarding discography to explore then I'd these guys. They aren't straight-out activists but they're one of those true rock-star heroes.

Idlewild – 7 albums since 1997

One of Britain's most underrated modern bands, Edinburgh's Idlewild put out an EP in 97 and an album in 98 which was described as ”a flight of stairs falling down a flight of stairs” because of its chaotic sound. Their sophomore album and remaining REM-influenced discography sounds nothing like that, they became more refined and even singer Roddy Woomble's vocals changed to a warmer and crisper sound. 100 Broken Windows and The Remote Part are two of the best 2000's alternative/indie rock albums you'll hear. Their sound has since mellowed out and gotten wiser and Roddy Woomble has even put out a few folk rock albums but their sound from early to newer stuff all holds up really well while showing diversity with great guitar work on songs like Make Another World. The lyrics are often nonsensical yet extremely poetic and well-written. Their best of album Scottish Fiction is a go

Artist Spotlight: Anderson .Paak

Welcome to Artist Spotlight, where members of the sub can draw attention to some of their favourite bands, or maybe help guide you through a more daunting discography! This week, u/TheRealPooh will be talking about Anderson .Paak.


Background

Anderson .Paak has one of the more interesting life stories of any musician right now imo. He's half Korean half Black and grew up in California with a single mother for most of his life after his father was arrested. .Paak married and worked at a marajuana farm for a while but was let go and left homeless with his wife and son in 2011. He was able to be helped out financially by alt hip hop group Sa-Ra and started releasing music as Breezy Lovejoy and eventually started drumming for American Idol's Haley Reinhardt. In 2014, Breezy Lovejoy officially changed his performing name to Anderson .Paak, produced Watsky's All You Can Do, and released his debut album Venice that year to favorable reviews. I'm personally not the largest fan of the album but it's definitely pretty good and energetic, and is absolutely worth checking out, especially the songs Milk & Honey and Drugs

after-Venice

.Paak's debut album was a hip-hop r&b album that led to some mild success, but he started really making a name for himself with his energetic and fun live performances. His big break came in the summer of 2015 with collaborations on Dr. Dre's final album, Compton. .Paak appeared on 6 songs, with contributions ranging from small vocal contributions on songs like Deep Water and Medicine Man to Dr. Dre basically using Animals, a song meant for Anderson .Paak's next solo effort, on this album. His contributions on the album were acclaimed, with some (including me) claiming he was easily the best aspect of the album and his features gave Anderson .Paak a much wider exposure.

Malibu

Striking quickly on his increased exposure, Anderson .Paak released Venice in early 2016. The album, with instrumentation from a band he formed called The Free Nationals, blends hip-hop, r&b, and soul together effortlessly, made possible by Anderson .Paak's ability to seamlessly switch between rapping and singing. .Paak sings about the hard times in his life often, in songs like the standout The Season | Carry Me and The Bird but mixed up with some super fun songs in Am I Wrong, Come Down, and Silicon Valley (a love song about fake boobs?). The album was released to acclaim, with praise given to the mixing of genres and how And

Need a few more acts to see? I've gone through the lineup and done a write up on the acts I know and what work to check out by them.

UPDATE

All finished, I've also made a Spotify playlist of these acts and more with my favorite tracks here.

UPDATE END

So, I've checked out quite a few of the acts on the lineup, both big and small and decided to do a write up on the ones I like a lot. I decided to do this because my friends were quite underwhelmed by the lineup initially, but once I showed them the acts I like they got a bit more excited for the festival. I hope to do the same for some of you and hopefully introduce you to some cool artists you may have overlooked. I've included TLDRs for each act for those who have less time. So here we go:

Friday - Main Stage

Two Door Cinema Club

For a lot of you this band needs no introduction. These Irish indie rockers/pop stars found fame with their huge 2010 debut Tourist History. They mix tight and catchy guitar riffs with electronic layering and do it pretty damn well.

Tourist History (2010) is the perfect place to start when getting into them. If that grabs you go then go for the second album Beacon (2012), which is my personal favorite as it has a lot more emotional depth both musically and lyrically even it sacrifices some of the catchiness of the debut. The third album Gameshow (2016) is a bit of mixed bag, which has the band moving into a sort of synth heavy 80s sound direction. It isn't a bad album, but I think the first half is much stronger than the second so it doesn't measure up against the other two overall.

TLDR

Best album to start: Tourist History

You'll like them if you like: The Wombats, Phoenix, Foster The People

Tracks they'll likely play: What You Know, Sun, Are We Ready?, I Can Talk, Undercover Martyn, Something Good Can Work, Cigarettes In The Theatre


Circa Waves

These guys are your standard Liverpudlian indie rock 4 piece. Whilst not exactly a game changer, they are quite good at what they do and a blast to see live.

Their debut Young Chasers (2015) is a great laid back summer album full of catchy, easy going guitar riffs and summery, sing along vocal hooks. Their sophomore follow up Different Creatures (2017) is an entirely, well, different creature. Whilst still fundamentally British indie rock at is roots, it boats a much heavier sound which the band pull off just as well. I prefer Young

Not Too Shabby, eMusic: Good Graces and All That

To avoid any ambiguity: I haven't seen that eMusic has made much, if any, effort to deal with its ongoing hemorrhaging of content. If the blockchain project has done anything to entice labels back to eMusic, I've seen little to no evidence of that. Added to that, it seems that 7Digital, eMusic's primary supplier, now is facing its own content issues. I can only add that I've seen that one of the albums on my radar screen, Echo Ladies' "Pink Noise," did finally pop up at 7Digital, and consequently, eMusic.

However, now and then, I still stumble upon gems of outstanding value. And this time, it's this:

Black Box Recorder: Life is Unfair https://www.emusic.com/album/162583587 $6.99

This is one of those multi-disk marvels that, for whatever reason, are sold at the price of a single disk album. Coming in at five disks, this is basically the entire output of Black Box Recorder: the three studio albums [England Made Me (1998), The Facts of Life (2000) and Passionoia (2003)], the collection of off-album singles (originally released as "The Worst of Black Box Recorder"), the reunion single and b-side "Keep in the Family/Do You Believe in God"), several b-sides and BBC tracks, and a new live album.

For those who don't know, Black Box Recorder was the project that Luke Haines, of the Auteurs, founded with John Moore (Jesus and Mary Chain) and Sarah Nixey in the late 90's, and lasting through most of the 00's. Americans like myself were quite late to the party on this one, as they didn't get widely released or discussed over here. Though the lyrics and even album covers frequently hit on distinctly British topics and cultural in-jokes, I can attest that little is lost in trans-Atlantic translation in "English Motorway System", "When Britain Refused to Sing," etc.

I'm not sure how to classify them in terms of genre. Musically, they fit in Indie-Electro Pop of the time. But the lyrics and singing... well, you can get a sense of it from the very title of the collection. Sarah Nixey's vocals and highly literate lyrics range from a kind of detached sense of irony, understated longing, frustrated cynicism, quirky nostalgia and jaded sexuality. And, of course, a thoroughly British deadpan style of humor, but one Americans familiar with British cultural exports will get. Though I like many Britpop bands (Blur, Pulp, Sleeper, Echobelly, Suede), I would argue that this is what Britpop SHOULD have been like. NOT bloody Oasis, the most overrated band in history.

So, I'll gi
