wow, 20 seconds of that was not worth (further) polluting my youtube recommendations

I've resisted that rhetorical line for years.

Fuck it, this did me in.

That's how this ended up as a Spotify rec for me -- after following Madchild and Swollen Members. Hope ti's not giving the too many streams. Almost started a thread of MAGA music, but it would be such a depressing thread.

I spend some of my lunchtimes cleaning up acoustic (like pre-1925 pre-electric-mic) recordings and they have this narrow band of recorded sound, so you can cut off a lot of surface noise by fading down the high and low ends of the EQ. I could put that same filter over the Hide Your Mother track and it would still sound the same.

That just sounds to me like a variation on pretty much every popular rap single since 2010

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 20 April 2020 11:25 (seven months ago) link

i haven't heard them because i don't have the stomach, but i feel like psychedelic nazis Black Magick SS probably belong here

Kate (rushomancy), Monday, 20 April 2020 12:49 (seven months ago) link

I don't believe for a moment this band has any ties to nsbm, it's merely this year's Uncle Acid + edgelordiness. Music for Discogs speculators. That said, undeniably catchy from the bits I just heard online, not even close to worst music of 2020 imo. Sounds a little like Ghost BC via Bone Awl

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 20 April 2020 15:24 (seven months ago) link

lol, ponzi this isn't a "defend the indefensible" thread but your eagerness to immediately cape for some nazi bullshit you had literally never heard of five minutes ago is duly noted

Kate (rushomancy), Monday, 20 April 2020 16:07 (seven months ago) link

also, lol that you "don't believe they have any ties to nsbm", you know hitler was in a band before burzum, right?

I check out everything posted itt and your post's (understandable) lack of a link inspired me go listen. I was expecting terrible music but didn't hear any. It just sounds like boilerplate catchy / crusty bm to me, albeit boilerplate catchy / crusty bm with questionable sleeve art

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 20 April 2020 16:59 (seven months ago) link

a quick look into it reveals they've released stuff on multiple actual nsbm labels so lol at the idea that they have no ties to nazism and are just edgelords using nazi imagery (which would still be indefensible)

ufo, Monday, 20 April 2020 23:06 (seven months ago) link

For my own edification, which of these two labels has ties to usbm?

www.discogs.com/label/1335453-Creep-Purple

www.discogs.com/label/164278-Infinite-Wisdom-Productions

Because these are the only two labels who've released music by this band according to Discogs outside of obvious bootleg labels with this as their only release

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 20 April 2020 23:42 (seven months ago) link

obviously I meant nsbm

Paul Ponzi, Monday, 20 April 2020 23:42 (seven months ago) link

if you're willing to go look up their music to satisfy your curiosity, i'm sure you can just as easily look up their past affiliations with nazi record labels. i didn't post what i did to open up a discourse.

Kate (rushomancy), Tuesday, 21 April 2020 01:22 (seven months ago) link

uh idk i think that "reich of the black sun" cassette on infinite wisdom looks pretty iffy??

I'm sure SS stands for Secret Santa

oh damn black magick ss doesn't have nazi themes in their music.... yet has a big ol' "ss" in their band name.... which means they're fuckin nazis

https://www.discogs.com/Black-Magick-SS-Hidden-In-Plain-Sight-/master/978077

they've released vinyl on German nsbm label Darker Than Black and searching reveals a number of the bands on Infinite Wisdom are also nazis (Wolfblood, Baal Gadrial, Reich of the Black Sun). there's probably more but i'm too lazy to look further and it's pretty clear

Sometimes it seems like a good shortcut to success in music these days is just to be really really obnoxious on purpose. Not that obnoxiousness guarantees success, but it seems like it can only help you.

JRN, Tuesday, 11 August 2020 04:07 (three months ago) link

i think you may be confusing obnoxiousness with not wearing clothes

I was also thinking of clothed artists such as Tekashi69 and 645AR. But not wearing clothes probably helps too

I made it 25 seconds into that Surf Mesa thing. The original song was horrible, and this is a horrible update.

I don't find Harry Styles charming or appealing at all, really, but he can at least sing. And that song sounds like the musicians were awake while they recorded it, which is a change of pace from 90% of the current pop I stumble across. They should have gone full retro Philly soul with the arrangement, though, because the parts where there are horns and drums are the best parts by about a thousand miles.

Not really hating on those singles - althought yummy and holy are abysmal - but just noticed that thing. Just like Lady Gaga’s thing is to stutter in her choruses.
