Noone on the other CYM thread admits to changing their mind (Jenks was right) and definitely no actual examples or climbdowns, so far anyway...
So here we are in the music forum
What music did you change your mind about?
Did dissensus make you do it??
Matthew posted this ages ago (Haim...
***PLEASE REFRAIN FROM ANSWERING THE POLL UNTIL LUKA AND STINKYBOY HAVE EACH HAD A CHANCE TO MAKE THEIR CASE***
This thread is for the two of them to demonstrate the intensity of their loathing for the country's foremost curator of twee archaic dialect words for a particular type of cloudy...
watching that Bacon film and reading Ulysses has me wondering where this stuff is today. Is there even an audience for 2020's equivalent? Tom McCarthy's contention's that if James Joyce were alive today he'd be working for Google...

focus on the nipple
it's fucking vr porn
it's not fucking vr porn
its fucking memes
please abandon this train of thought now
politics is downstream of culture
the g-o-d function
the new gothic
anything after and including "beggars banquet"
no brian - he only played on one tracl on beggars banquet.
generally more consistent. better? more "powerful"? mystic?
going to travel to the far end myself...
this always strikes me as very close to liquid liquid/esg territory
That's why HH is a guilty pleasure, lack of gravitas.
How does sense of humour work in music then?
generally it's not a good thing - there are no straight up joke songs that should be taken seriously, by definition.
but i think its importance is often unrecognised and maybe hard to...
On the back of Barty's mostly singles canon can we have an albums one.
Some comments on the album would be good too.
People post albums. Users do the “ta” button on the ones they like and the ones with lots of ta’s become canon.
some of it is really dull but some of it is far preferable to kuido or whoever, the right amount of melodic synth texture over stepper rhythms. melodic dub fast techno/dnb crossover, if you will.
Doodles, more technical things, abstract, figurative, the whole shebang.
stuff from right now, today, this week, ideally, but archive is also fine i suppose.
paitings also fine i guess. also comics.
all tools and technologies allowed though - ipad drawings, phone sketches etc are all fine...
this has been a dyad lurking implicitly in the subconscious of a lot of threads for a long time; the bladerunner jungle stuff, communist music reviews, arguably even michael jackson vs princess.
you’ve got to have the gods and magic with the sci fi. the matrix has all the computers but it also...
Go on then go on then draw for the choons. 20 goon choons. The illest drill.
An impassioned defence of a much maligned genre. Why does it matter? Why is it life enhancing? Why should we bother?
An explanation of what makes it top 20 worthy. Quotables.
The great lost RA/Fact/Wire article...
mvuent is going to do a close reading of all of these one by one and we're all going to clap and applaud:
it's not too important whether you like them or not; ideally it wouldn't be possible from your descriptions to tell...
by which i mean phenomena like distortion, saturation, tape hiss, static, background noise, various forms of feedback, etc. just any "imperfections" in the recording that obfuscate the tunes.
(a few threads that could be relevant: 1 2)
this stuff is interesting to me because even when...
catch the wave
continuous acoustic flow
haven't the foggiest
radio free dissensus
that's another great artifact

the mvuent movement
Hilariously Skrillix turned out to be both the most successful and the most musically gifted of all the dubstep producers. America saved dubstep by making it outsized, idiotic, vulgar, widescreen, technicolour. But I haven't actually heard any of the music. This is a conceptual opinion. What...
