Day 616: Dungeon Rap: The Introduction by DJ Armok / DJ Bishop / Pillbox

Scrolling through the charts as you definitely already know and I expected this to be a meme. I'm surprised it's not! Or at least I think it's not. When I think of dungeon synth I think of those absolutely horrible Burzum albums he made while locked up for stabbing that dude like a kajillion times, but this only sounds kinda like that in a few tracks and never as cheesy! The super scuzzy, lo-fi production makes me think of Screw or shit in that vein but with some obvious differences (like the fact that I'm pretty sure this isn't slowed down on most if not all tracks). The recording quality does make it so songs kinda blend into each other, further amplified by the short running time of most of these tracks.

Are they rapping in English or Ukrainian or what? It's really hard for me to tell, so I'm going off beats and atmosphere alone. In both of those aspects, this is very consistent, though picking favorite tracks will be tough. Favorite of the beatmakers (or beatchoosers if these guys are just MCs, I don't know shit about this) is definitely DJ Armok, whose style reminds me of a more polished but still raw Old Tapes-era Boards of Canada in certain places, but neither of the other two strike me as a weakest link or anything. Why is the Bandcamp digital tracklist different from the ones on YouTube and the physical? I fucking hate when bands do that. (EDIT: apparently THEY'RE ALIASES HAHAHAHA I'M AN IDIOT. Well, I definitely like more Armok songs than anything)

Some good chill-out music, occasionally with an oddly (but welcomed) sinister vibe yet never loses its fun trippy headspace, definitely want to return to this. Clearly I like shit that just numbs me out.

Oh wait they're definitely rapping in English.

Best Track: Don't Let This Be Your Death Wish or Murder

Day 617 (area code baby!): All My Heroes Are Cornballs by JPEGMAFIA

This is a lot chiller than Veteran which remains one of my top albums of last year. Compared to the common Death Grips comparison that the 2018 album got, this borders on R&B for perhaps a majority of tracks. This project feels a bit more consistent with fewer obvious lows, but it definitely doesn't reach the same peaks either. This is gonna need some repeated listens to make a real verdict on it, but I'm loving dude's ability to bring a similar energy as before to a completely different style and having it mesh fairly well, and that counts for a lot.

Anyways time to go jerk off to those leaked Anthony Fantano nudes again.

Best Track: Kenan Vs. Kel

Day 618: Polymer by Plaid (Album Choice: billperson)

Listened several times and really I shouldn't be writing this shit bc homework but I needs to remember how much I like it. I like it a lot! It's groovy and feels danceable while avoiding feeling repetitive in the slightest, and it's sequenced quite elegantly. I have no real complaints on this one!

Best Track: Drowned Sea

Day 619: Everywhere at the End of Time - Stage 6 by The Caretaker (Album Choice: choof)

Did I review one of these earlier? Lemme check.

I did. It was the third one. Either way, go read up on the story behind these albums if you want, but I'm jumping straight into the most recent part because 2019, and because I want to see how it holds without the context.

I barely remember what the other one sounded like, but I do remember how it had far more tracks, with this one only having 4 pieces. And compared to the more obviously sample-based work displayed on that earlier album, this one is far more minimalist and seemingly focused on soundscapes, or really just, like, static. The final track is absolutely gorgeous, but with the other ones I get the sense I really should've listened to this whole project lol

Oh well, one day I will listen to the whole thing as intended. For now, ehh

Best Track: Place In The World Fades Away

Day 620: Dog Whistle by Show Me The Body

I feel like I meant to listen to this forever ago for some reason and why is eluding me. Whatever.

The interlude tracks are utterly pointless. The rest of the tracks range from noisy and racuous to noisy and sludgy, and while I prefer the slower ones, the whole package is good here besides those stupid spoken word bits and those only add up to like 75 seconds! At 28 minutes, this is a perfect blast of fuzz that never feels overbearing and stays interesting throughout.

Best Track: Forks and Knives
