NOUGHTIES/NOWTS/00s POLL CAMPAIGNING SIDE-THREAD: Youtube, Bandcamp & other links to YOUR nominations that AREN'T ON SPOTIFY

Message Bookmarked

I can't be asked making a Youtube playlist or whatever - the Spotify playlists are taking long enough. Just paste anything you want more exposure for here (albums or tracks), so long as it isn't also on Spotify, because that'd be rude.

Here's my sole non-Spotify nomination so far:

https://williamddrake.bandcamp.com/track/melancholy-world-2

^^^listen if you like Mellotrons and quaint English yearning

This is my only non-spotify nom

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6uHEsa41aI

It's Halcali and it is very good, vote for it if you like good things, cheers.

Here's a youtube playlist for A Mountain of One's "Collected Works", which I don't see on spotify. The band had some connection to Studio/Lissvik that I never fully worked out, but this album didn't get nearly as much attention on ILM as Studio did. They are in the same yacht rock/Balearic vein, but AMoO have a bit more 1980s cheese. It's still one of my most listened-to albums. "Brown Piano" might be the most well-known song because of the remix on Yearbook 2, but I think everything on the album is great. Don't bother with their second album, Institute of Joy -- it sucks.

I found out about Sambomaster from Tim Rogers' blog back in '05 or '06. I recall he described them as "superpowerpop." I became pretty obsessed with the album this song is from, to the point where I seriously started studying Japanese. AFAICT, they have virtually no fanbase outside of Japan. Their name is a reference to the Russian martial art and not the racist caricature, but I can see it making them tough to market in the US regardless. They made some of the best and most idiosyncratic pop-rock I've ever heard (they're still around, but they seriously declined in quality after this album, IMO). Their old, good stuff is totally absent from Spotify.

I didn't nominate this (thanks, J. Sam!) but will definitely be voting for it, one of the decade's great one-offs:

Who can forget The Astronauts’ classic 1981 release ‘Peter Pan Hits the Suburbs’! But did you know they were still releasing amazing stuff in the 00s (admittedly as The Otters) and even now? If there’s anything you’re ambivalent about on your tracks ballot and you like seedy, melodramatic post-punk, you might decide to include this wonderful simmering mess: https://theastronautsband.bandcamp.com/track/melissas-party

Halcali were amazing.

There's a load of soca stuff missing from Spotify. For some reason the only version of Shurwayne Winchester's 2005 Road March winner Dead Or Alive is by the Netherlands Wind Ensemble.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itgSyPxfqoE

The only version of Rikki Jai's Mor Tor is the vastly inferior remix with Machel Montano. Probably my favourite ever chutney song and something i'm always tempted to send people a link to when asked my family background.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-lbinf_qSs

Lee Hyun-Hyun was a briefly huge, largely forgotten (afaict) K-Pop star in the early 2000s with a much stronger emphasis on Eurodance than more R&B-influenced contemporaries like BOA. All her albums are great - Vol. 4: I <3 Natural probably the best and most cohesive.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0Mtk9NGpU8

Maudlin Russian Italo-pop is pretty much my favourite music genre and Belaya Cheremukha by Tatyana Bulanova is peak mauldin-Russian-Italo-pop

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMIWx0W4Pzk&list=RDxMIWx0W4Pzk&start_radio=1&t=41

Spotify seems to have every Allison Moorer album apart from her towering achievement - The Hardest Part, the greatest country album of a highly competitive decade.

A couple of tracks from the MC Saizmundo album 'Blaen Troedar'. I can't find 'Cymraeg-Inglish' which was my track pick.

that song was everything I wanted from that whole scene, love them at their most acoustic. not a million miles away from the pink reason album I nominated as well, which is well worth a listen if everyday gets you in the mood

Plus Tech Squeeze Box - Cartooom!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7UpwGaUonuQ

A hyper, frenetic genre-bending Picopop album, that is basically a half cartoon. Similar to Cornelius's Fantasma, but even more concentrated.

Tomorrow is the big day when I'll blitz the rest of the Spotify playlists and turn the data into spreadsheets or whatever. If I need help I will let you know though!

NATO - Chorjavon (or Chorchavon idk)

Former TATU manager Ivan Shapovalov had a bunch of minor projects, none of which were really any good with the exception of NATO - who seems to have been an attempt to do for pretend-terrorism what his other band had done for pretend-lesbianism. The marketing was monumentally tasteless but the single, an updated version of a Tajik folk song iirc, was stunning. The version on YouTube isn't quite as good as the original single but is still great.

Don't sleep on Jon Brion's one and only solo record, a lost power pop classic. seems to be region-locked on Spotify, here's a Youtube playlist as an alternative.

Bardo Pond - Lord of Light
MASSIVE psych rock cover of Hawkwind.

Just want to mention that the 15th anniversary edition of Complex Simplicity, with some added tracks, is now on Spotify. The original album has been absent there for a long time, at least where I live.

revisiting all the DFA (& similar) stuff is quite disappointing. definitely remember spaghetti circus, casual friday and even stuff like laughing light of plenty & rub n tug being more exciting and less corny, oh well.

Jens Lekman's Maple Leaves is not on Spotify and it's probably my favorite song of his:

It doesn't sample Since I Left You. It just happens to sample Glen Campbell's version of "By The Time I Get To Phoenix", while Since I Left You samples Tony Mottola's version of "By The Time I Get To Phoenix".

I've never heard of most of these acts (and most of you have never heard of me no doubt so who cares right?)

I propose that the 00's were the decade when the notion of a critically approved musical canon of new music disintegrated. Tastes in new music have maybe become too fragmented. The only commonalities of interest for the decade among ILM posters will be blog house, indie rock/metal, and hipster-approved R&B/hip hop.

Of course it's quite possibly an issue more of the changing ILM community than music fandom in general. Anyway wake me up when there's a poll of top "continuum" music for the decade.

viborg, Thursday, 3 October 2019 04:28 (one month ago) link

Casual Friday is definitely not "corny" tho. Maybe heaping on the hipster irony a little overmuch but the rhythm is still smoking hot.

You saved me from having to post it! Definitely top ten for me. I'm perpetually underwhelmed by later Lekman, after he got the goofy puns and sampling so right early on.
