Talking of which:

Meh, I dunno. Not nearly as good as previous years yet IMO. Still loads more to come though.

Double great.


Just today I learned that Flying Saucer Attack came back in 2015.

I also learned the two albums he's put out since 2015 are pretty bad.

Well considering the average song length I can only assume that's at least 7 hours.

Skullgirls devs are perverts who are having an hangover after a succesful indiegogo. They watched the tropes vs women and they hate their fans, repented and now want to be seen as Legit Indie Game Developers in the IGF ballpit/circlejerk for hipsters.

Pomp has also an anime avatar.

When I saw them a few months back it was most of Luciferian Towers followed up by all of Slow Riot. With some extra intro/bridge stuff that I don’t think were ‘real’ tracks.

This Will Destroy You is playing their first album in it's entirety here in May...might go.

Of course I could just listen to the album but its at a venue I've never been to before and it's not super expensive or anything...so we'll see.

Just listened to Jakob's Cale:Drew for the first time (the remaster) and there was a bit of a moment on the original final track when the outro is also the intro for Malachite, first track off their next record Solace. That was amazing, wish the bonus track was next-to-last so it had even more impact.

The first two songs on C:D immediately stood out. Absolute bangers. The rest will take more listens probably.

In this batch of music I also bought the Solace remaster and pg.lost's latest (among other insanely good off-topic stuff). Good headphone times are ahead.

Jakob is excellent if a bit samey at times. There's a definite Jakob sound permeating most of their tracks. It's not a single riff or anything but it kind of feels like it at times.

i think jakob's albums are a bit samey within themselves but each album has a bit of a different sound. their lows are still pretty good and there are a solid 3-4 really good tracks on each album. they're also awesome live

e: be sure to check out their self titled and erfo EPs if anyone here hasn't already. means and amasae are 2 of their best songs (verstaerker is good too)

"Samey" is not a criticism I would think of to direct at Jakob; I really like their style so I always want more of it. I'm also not a fan of wild tempo or style changes.

I was actually hearing The Diffusion of Our Inherent Situation in my dreams last night, that's when you know you like a song I guess.

e: Something I've noticed Jakob is really good at - making actual music out of chaotic guitar distortion/feedback/etc. Like, with their loudest movements with lots of guitar noise, they control it in a way where it always has a structure that fits with the drums/bass. That's super neato.
