Re: Cerulean Crayons - post-rock

This is some really interesting music. You should consider getting a friend to play some saxophone/horn on a few tracks. There are a few artists out there that mix saxophones with post-rock and it not only sounds great, it sounds interesting.

Re: do you need any sheet music?

If you want help or advice crescalona, I used to do a lot of arranging/orchestrating.

Re: Tea Snobbery

Darjeeling is good tea. Very good tea. I will also make a note to try darker oolongs, and Scottish Breakfast. What does evverybody think of China Jasmine? Like freezeblad said, there are a lot of varieties out there of Jasmine (and Oolong as well, and well..every tea), and I actually tend not to en...

Re: What are you readioactive now(and other book related stu

Just finished up the novel Money by Martin Amis. It was written in 1984, and offers a study of hedonism in Capitalist america, and the benefits and pains that come with it. The writing style is interesting and a little unexpected, just enough so to make this a very interesting read. If you're lookin...

Re: How much of the music you listen to is really original?

I think genres evolve from each other. There are countless factors to consider (especially historically) including region, purpose/intention, instruments available, cultural phenomena, etc. when trying to pin down where a certain music comes from, what makes it original, and when music stopped being...

Re: 5 xkcd Animations

I loved the music in the first (elevator) one, I thought it was hilariously perfect. I loved the animation AND music (good choice in Op. 18, if you like that one you should check out some of his later works, esp. his Rhapsody Op. 43) in the Alternative Energy so much that I watched it twice. These a...

Re: Recommend one artist

If you listen to anything, listen to Beirut . Check them out, they're a brilliant indie folk band that mixes rock with world music. If you're looking for some relevant post rock music check out Efterklang ("Polygyne" is a good track to start with). I'm also a sucker for experimental rock/n...

Re: Female Vocalists

Since no one has mentioned her yet, Lay Low is a great artist. Listen to Helganga: youtu.be/3saDQk-3AV4. Kind of dark indie folk. Also, someone mentioned them earlier but I thought I'd second them: Warpaint, all-female four piece rock band. The play kind of experimental/psychedellic rock music, with...

Re: What are you listening to?

if anyone's interested in some interesting electr/dub/jazz, Its Goin Down - Big Gigantic is a good piece. Big Gigantic has a lot of interesting sounds. For something a little heavier, the next song coming on for me is Resistance March by Break Science. It's pretty chill. (I'd include links but I thi...

Re: 1152: "Communion"

I assumed the murder referenced was Jimmy Hoffa. Pretty big deal in the 70s (and its a continual running joke in popular culture, though I suppose as people get older younger people don't know as much about it). The alt-text I thought was funnier than the comic, since no one is sure where the mobste...
