Day 622: Charli by Charli XCX

Call me hipster daddy.

Just kidding, because I ain't nobody's father, and because I am basically just getting hip to this woman's music besides the two songs we all know. Just like Carly Rae Jepsen I seem to have missed some sort of hipster appraisal, or rather I ignored some sort of hipster appraisal since I always knew she had a huge /mu/-esque following.

Also, I find both of the two songs I know her from to be utterly grating garbage. But to be fair, they're not "her" songs, instead she just featured for Iggy Azalea's meme ass and... who the figgity fuck is Icona Pop? Anyways, my opinion is those songs sucked but she managed to make them suck harder, but still, it wasn't HER writing, she just came off as annoying in her delivery. Not a good starting point, but whatever.

Y'know, although I only like a select few songs from her, I totally see the bubblegummy, feel-good appeal of Carly Rae Jepsen's music as a whole, from her big hit (singular) to her nerd-adored work. It fills a certain saccharine niche that in other hands would be entirely annoying or even sickening, probably because she chooses some bangers for backing tracks.

Some of these backing tracks also slap, but I'm failing to see the specific appeal over countless other electropop artists outside of a few really hard-hitting, almost industrial sounding tracks and a few dance floor killers. The rest is just kinda.... there... for me. Inoffensive, but I don't see why people are fawning over it like no tomorrow. Also, how dare you utilize Lizzo so fucking poorly? Still, it almost never annoyed me!

Wait, people like her because of some connection to PC Music? The fuck is this? I should've guessed since she helped SOPHIE blow up but I completely missed this and y'know what I'm not even gonna try or go down this Google rabbit hole.

Day 623: Sphere by Monkey3 (Album Choice: MarioNintendo)

This is gonna be a bad review right before I knock. Dude who requested, I'ma get to Psychedelic Porn Crumpets sooner or later but this was 2019 and it seemed like good study music. And it was.

I generally like my stoner rock more mellow and less bombastic as this felt. Going for a more metallic vibe here it seems, which comes off as fitting in some places, kinda cheesy or jam-bandy in a way.

I'm not in the right mindset rn. I have to revisit this one baked.

Day 624: Music for 18 Musicians by Steve Reich (Album Choice: EzExZeRo7497)

Hey sis, how long has it been since I've reviewed something you've recommended? Just so turns out this is perfect for my studious purposes. Or at least I think it is. I KNOW I've listened to several pieces by this guy before but shit's eluding me completely. Don't live like me kids or you'll end up going from smart precocious kid to wasted potential to actually stupid now. Let's stop this before it gets too pitiful.

Okay, so the music. Well, it actually got me to focus on work for a good portion of it, so it wins on that merit. And as a seamless piece, this is amazingly hypnotic in how it uses repetition to really accent the textures of each section while sucking you into its overall headspace. Was that last sentence stupid? Did it sound like thesaurus diarrhea? I don't know because I'm a fucking moron! The brief ending piece Pulses II is a fitting cap.

Good album. Or song I guess. Back to work.

Best Track: I'm not picking that for this album

Day 625: Nostalgia Critic's The Wall by Rob Scallon & Doug Walker (Album Choice: choob)

I don't care about The Wall. I don't care about Nostalgia Critic. This album thusly is unfunny, tedious and often cringe-y, but I've definitely heard worse. The singing is annoying as fuck but otherwise it's mostly musically competent, probably because it's mostly BASED on an album I find "competent".

If this is intended as a backhanded response to #ChangeTheChannel with such great titles like We Don't Need Victimization that makes it funnier. Same rating tho

Day 626: Schism by Le Dom

It shouldn't be hard to find where I've been googling in my search for music that will help my broken ADD-ass brain focus on doing my homework. You know it. It's basic as fuck like me.

Anyways, I don't get this EP. It was catchy and headbumpy at first, then I was annoyed and this is REALLY brief. Meh.

Day 627: Bones by Datach'i

I see I was recommended an album from this dude way back in 2013 by April. Never got to that, but maybe now I will?

This album starts off really strong, then peters off quite a bit in the middle, ending almost as good as the first few tracks. Seeing how this guy is called flashcore I assume this is his most melodic work, but the less melodic tracks aren't doing much for me beyond study music. The whole thing is pretty minimalistic but it shows how much of a difference a simple ass synthline does for my simple ass.

Study. Study. Study. Dexter's Laboratory clip. I still like this way more than the last one.

Well, it's better than the last minimalistic electronic EP I listened to, a couple of hours ago. Maintained my interest just a little bit more despite being longer. Not every song is my cup of tea though.

Day 629: Rain Forest by Paul Hardcastle (Album Choice: Josemba)

I can't tell if this stuff reminds me most of vaporwave, 80s era direct-to-VHS informationals (is that even a word) or modern vaporwave offshoots like future funk. This came before all of that except the VHS stuff. It's kitschy, but god I love the vibe and it never stops being groovy save for a briefly annoying midsection in Forest Fire. Good recommendation, and I'm not just saying that to be nice. This totally slaps AND works for homework purposes.

Maybe that latter part is a dumb benchmark to be using. Ah well fuck you. Someone do a search on this thread and see how many times I've said "fuck you".

Best Track: Panic (I hope this guy is cooler than Morrissey)

Day 630: Voyager VII by Cygnus

I saw this guy live exactly 4 years ago to this day as he opened for Autechre. He actually put on the best set of the night, the only other competition being some DJ that played two seperate 90 minute sets whereas everyone else got 45 minutes. I never checked his music out, but what better time than now?

This is not better than Autechre, or at least my favorites of theirs. Some of these tracks groove hard, and then a bunch bore the fucking shit out of me. Also 57 minutes is too long, and some of the sound effects are cheesy as all hell. Still, I commend the album for successfully maintaining the "video game outer space" sound dude was going for even when the tracks don't hit, and maybe I'll like this more with repeat listens.

I don't know why but this soundtrack reminds me a lot of the Beat Therapy album I reviewed that was the soundtrack to a game I played as a child. I recently switched from new-line Android to an old beat up iPhone 6 and wanted to download the game but it seems it isn't compatible with my phone

Day 635: Opaque Couché by Meat Beat Manifesto

I'm gaining muscle memory for accent mark keyboard shortcuts! This is the most accomplished I've felt in a while.

I'm 99.999999999% sure I've heard these dude's music before, and they've been around quite a while, but I just can't put my finger on it, so I'm judging this wholly on its own merits!

And on its own merits, I applaud these guys for how eclectic this album is in terms of both mood and energy. Some of these are chiller groovers, some are more soundscape-esque, some make me wish I was dancing at a music festival between the hours of 2-6AM and some feel surprisingly fast-paced, reminding me a bit of mid-period Aphex Twin (and sometimes almost as good!). I also like MOST of the use of samples here, though some are kinda corny.

Still, it's pretty damn hit-or-miss, sometimes even within the same song, and at around an hour it's way too fucking long. Thus, it gets the mode rating.

Best Track: Agelast
