 Moby's newest single, "Too Much Change," feels like a really promising work in progress. Pared down from the album version's 10-minute runtime down to just over 3 minutes, we're left with a single version that fails to perform as well as the original⁠—despite that version also suffering from the same problem. The intro is pleasant, featuring breathy vocals by Apollo Jane, backed by melancholic piano and light percussion. In this edit, the soft tropical club beats start ... read more

 Guitar Vader's big first break was when ten of their songs appeared in the Japan-exclusive video game Roommania #203. Their fanbase expanded, and the band capitalized on this with Die Happy!, a compilation of their previously-released material. It was this release that led Hideki Naganuma, a director and producer of music working at SEGA, to discover the band and include two of their songs in the successful Dreamcast game Jet Grind Radio: "Magical Girl" and "Super ... read more

if you had to choose a live performance of a song that's better than the original studio recording, what would it be? it can either be something youve experienced yourself or something from an official live album (cough cough its for a list)

I'm Nick. I draw furry and horror art, and also produce ambient, noise, and synth music.

Only cataloging music from 2019 or later here, unless I have a physical copy or have reviewed it. My RYM/Sonemic has 7000+ ratings, as well as several lists!

50 is neutral or mixed. Anything below that is stuff I didn't like, and anything above that is stuff that I did. I tend to like most things.
