Another fantastic track in which Sufjan compares himself to a much darker figure in history (John Wayne Gacy Jr and Tonya Harding previously). This time referencing the guru Rajneesh, who may have been responsible for some acts of bio-terrorism in the US in the 80s.
Like America the song does a wonderful job of changing timbre and tone, of shifting and building layers to created an incredibly lush piece of music. While Age of Adz has been mentioned, i'm pretty sure his work on Planetarium is ... read more

Pretty Things is an interesting collection of unusual, but very creative House tracks

ZEMMOL's bass is a definite highlight, funky and fun, but not so intrusive that the layers placed on top would be disturbed by it. The whip like drums give the song an 80s vibe, while the waves of synths remind me of something slightly experimental out of the 00s.
Bean then ups the weird while slowing down the tempo. More atmospheric than the previous cut, it sounds like someone on shrooms kind of riding the ... read more

YouTube Recommendation #25

I don't know where this came from, but praise be to the God of Algorithms!

At just 22 minutes and 14 seconds, The World is Yours is a blast of 6 pulse pounding punk songs, relentless in their effort to get you moving and banging your head, but also full to the brim with melody, catchy vocal lines and fantastic guitar riffs. While there isn't really a single moment to breathe and relax, the consistency of the quality of each song is too ridiculous for anyone to ... read more

There's a lot to unpack in a 12 minute song, but suffice it to say, America is beautiful. Wonderfully layered and immaculately structured, the push and pull of electronic and acoustic instruments woven together is utterly fantastic and worth multiple listens solely to embrace the rich tapestry of atmosphere.

Lyrically the track touches on elements of Christianity, referencing the flood in Genesis and Judas' betrayal among some more minor ones. I think the key refrain of

Paul Weller is one of the few legends from the 70s that has constantly been making music of quality and from one project to another has evolved his sound. His legacy having helped pioneer British Punk as the lead singer, songwriter and guitarist of The Jam, vanguard of Sophisti-Pop in the 80s as The Style Council and since the 90s performed under his own name. Across these 3 projects, he has released 25 albums of which 15 have gone Gold, or better, in sales in the UK. He has regularly worked ... read more

Hi there! Thanks so much for listening to my album, AOOS, and writing that amazing review! :) I was wondering if you would take time out of your day to listen to some more music I've made!

I made an electronic album about the end of the world, check out the AOTY page here:
https://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/259083-concrete-castles-an-abandoned-bus-in-the-valley-of-a-forest.php

I made an EP with a bunch of chill songs experimenting with music. Here is the AOTY page :):
https://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/257075-concrete-castles-.php

Both are on my bandcamp page, and only the EP is on streaming services. Sorry for being annoying like this, I'd just love feedback on how to improve. I did this for my last album, and it really helped.

Hey! Sorry to bug you, but I just finished a new little EP and I’d love some feedback on it if you have the time! I tried to keep a somewhat dreamy and funky sound throughout and I’m very proud of how it turned out. Also, this is a big experiment for me so I’d like to know your favourite and least favourite tracks and why.

I'll try to keep this short because I don't want to be annoying and spammy. I released an intsrumental Electronic album today, and would love if you could check it out! It's based off of the dictionary of obscure sorrows, basically each song is a word. Even if you listen to just the first track, that'd be amazing :). Feel free to tell me if you hate it, all I want is to improve.

Thanks so much :-)
