Is it possible to alienate a techno fan? Isn't alienation part of what it's all about? ;D

Actually, I wanted to put up something off Michael Hoenig's Departure from the Northern Wasteland but there doesn't seem to be anything up on YouTube. You can listen to some samples here however:

http://www.amazon.co...Hoenig/dp/B0000018X3

Thanks for that bit of news about Down in the Park. I didn't know Marylin Manson did a cover of a Neuman song. But I suppose that's to be expected. I'm afraid of Marylin Manson.  ;D

BTW: Isn't/wasn't he married to Ditta van Tease, or someone of like ilk?

Here I go again, with yet some more music from my corner of the world (and you thought it was over already ...  :P)

But this time it's a VERY different kind of music. Forget Tango, forget Folk music. This is Juana Molina (who?????  :huh:)
She's a difficult artist to classify. See what a review of one of her albums at the No Ripcord website says about her:

Quote
Juana Molina is hard to put into English terms. Maybe if Elvis Costello's daughter had grown up in exile learning music from Fergal Sharkey and Billy Bragg, been a bit-part musician round London in her teenage years, taken to being a bit-part actress in TV comedies to finance guitar lessons, and then almost accidentally become a kind of young Latin American Tracy Ullman, only then to return to music and start recording the kind of aural balm you'd expect from Mira Calix or Múm, then you'd perhaps be getting there. As it is, and as you'll read elsewhere on this site, JM is uniquely Argentine, while producing beautiful, soothing melodies that cross borders like nomads.

You can read the rest of the review here

Video clips from her are not too numerous, but I found this on YouTube:



This is her website: www.juanamolina.com , where you can listen to (and download!) 8 tracks from three different albums

She's sometimes also compared with Bjork, though she sounds more like Portishead to me (that may be due to my total lack of musical ear, though  :D). Anyway, listen to her and decide for yourself.
I'll have what she's having

Heh, I was thinking into posting one of Opethw heaviest songs, but perhaps it would be too much for some members :P. So, I think I'll post Burden, it still has a certain edge, but the song is more of a ballad than anything else. Quite beautiful, I should say, perhaps the best track of the album.

I was surprised to see Emilíana Torriniw has so many music videos, which made very difficult to choose one. Heartstopper is not my favourite song of hers, but it's a really sweet tune, and the video is just fantastic.

I really appreciate these, guys. I went to Amazon and bought a half dozen of these single tracks, DMR-free, w00t!

Rammstein kicks some serious hiney live - they put on some massive shows, with enough fireworks and flamethrowers to make 4th of July seem like a walk in the park. Quite recommended :)

This is one of the nastiest uses of morphing I've ever seen. Disturbing imagery for a disturbing song.

@40Hz:
That number from Soundgarden is the worst of the bunch on that particular album. The other songs are (imho) way better. Actually that is my perfect example of an "all killer, no filler" album  :)

OK, don't complain later :P. Since I can't find a decent video (with decent sound) of the song I wanted to post, I have to opt for another one, The Grand Conjuration. Don't be deceived by the first part ;)

Now for something completely different. Depeche Mode's Suffer Well. The video is pretty funny, and the song is cool. Playing the Angel was a really good album.

Here's Jethro Tull, a perennial favorite of mine. One of the few groups from their era that can still play and surprise us. One of the few groups I make it a point to see when they're touring.

FWIW: They're a hundred times better live - a much harder rock vibe then they get on their albums.

I am a HUGE Jethro Tull fan, especially of their live performances. I prefer the live stuff over the studio recordings, but both are great.

I have been a fan since probably around the age of 6. When I was 10, I tried to learn to play the flute, with ambitions to play like Ian Anderson. All I managed to accomplish was a greater appreciation of his incredible talent.

Here is a playlist I made of Jethro Tull live concert videos that takes you from the early days to more recently:

http://www.youtube.c...t?p=0151CA5D5F56ACE5 *

There is well over 100 videos in the list.

Enjoy!



Sorry, list got deleted by mistake when I was doing some "housework".

Can't stop there. While I'm reducing your opinions of me by demonstrating songs I love, I have two more...

Both songs generally passed around in jest. Both songs I, sadly, genuinely really like.

I fail.

Speaking of Rick-Rolling, I was recently playing the Chrono Trigger remake on Nintendo DS when I heard Robo's Theme and the similarities between it and Never Gonna Give You Up are astounding... Chrono Trigger originally came out in the USA in 1995. The world was Rick-Rolled by Chrono Trigger long before it became the popular thing to do.

Though, some YouTube commenters have pointed out that they may have just time traveled (a main plot mechanism in the game) after Rick-Rolling became popular and changed the theme song in the game.

Apparently I'm not the first to notice the similarities, as someone has posted a music/video mashup of the two songs.

Here's one I came upon a day or two ago.


This isn't the actual music video to the song. Some guy on YouTube just grabbed a random music video from the 70s and cut it to make it slightly relevant to the music of Mogwai.

The result is a "What the heck?" which gradually turns into a chuckle, and perhaps even hilarity.

EDIT: Embedded video directly into the post. P.S. I really like the entire Mogwai album this song is from, The Hawk is Howlingw. But I don't have any of the Japanese bonus tracks.

Yeah, that's what it says in the video description:

I made this video out of and old 70's music video with a Danish dude doing a cover of Apache by The Shadows.
