What music have you been listening to lately? - Page 3

post #31 of 58
I've been listening to Slayers new cd, God Hates Us All, while I don't know if god really hates us all, or if there is a god I don't have much of an opinion on that, but I do know this is a pretty rippin cd. They're really talented psychos. Sorry Beagle, I know you hate heavy metal.

I don't hate heavy metal music. I do have a problem with some of the lyrics which simply promote hate and violence without providing a reason or solution. Mate an intelligent lyricist with good aggressive music and you can have something wonderful.

My fave Lull album was "Cold Summer". The reason I say 'was' is because some no-good rottern so-and-so has borrowed it permantly! Sadly the disc is out of print, one of these days I will make an effort and seek it out.
I'll have to burn you a copy until you can find your own (PM me about this, plz). I was really impressed with the Lull stuff the most: Continue, Moments, etc. I think I have them all (I have all 5 that AMG list, anyway. PS AMG has one entry wrong -- under Lull, they have something called _The Lull Account_ -- not Lull related. Good, but not MH good. Just FYI...).

Oops, don't have this, will have to get it: http://www.ear-rational.com/search.cgi?desc=3722

Do you listen to Mick's other work? Scorn is just amazing and the disc he did under the guise "The Weakener" (on Wordsound) is a gem - extremely slow 'dark hop' I think best explains it. It has Mick's trademark drifts and drones, fractured beats as well as his signature sub-bass. Love it!
L, yeah, you know it -- that's how I discovered Lull -- Scorn was probably my first exposure to Mick Harris' work. First thing someone told me was to go back and check out his earlier stuff (meaning Napalm Death). :-D (Not exactly the same as where he's been since 1992 or thereabouts.
Quote:
If you haven't already, do check out the stuff he has done with Bill Laswell and Eraldo Bernocchi called "Equations of Eternity". They have two albums out on Wordsound also and they are fanastic dub-workouts.
Yup, Laswell is another one I'm a big fan of, so yes, I do already have both EOE albums, as well as all three Murder Ballads albums, and some of his other one-off collaborations (Overload Lady, Total Station, Shortcut to Connecticut). Haven't gotten the Quoit, yet, though (BTW, the above online store seems to be carrying a lot of this -- try doing a general search for Harris, for example, and 12 of the 13 responses are he) and I've used him many many times, highly recommended as a retailer).

I've been listening a lot to:
Linkin Park - "Hybrid Theory" (the version with 2 extra bonus tracks on the Cd) - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! -someone second me on this-
David Gray - "White Ladder"
John Reuben - "Are We There Yet"
Slimm Calhoun - "Skinny"

Also, to get myself all revved up over the new Ja Rule album 'Pain Is Love' (Oct. 2nd), I've been listening to his first album 'Venni Vetti Vecci' and his 2nd cd, 'Rule 3:36'. (no seriously guys Ja is good! Hes great really, almost up there with 2pac and Xzibit)

In a couple of weeks I'll be listening to a lot of Matthew Good Band in anticipation of their newest album, "The Audio of Being" (Oct. 30th)......oooooohhh cant wait!

Dusty Chalk

Well it seems we share a common taste in music! Thanks for the offer of the Lull burn, a friend in Melbourne has a copy (not mine!) so I can get a burn from him, but in the long run I hope to get my hands on a copy of the original - if only for the sleeve art

Can I ask what headphones you find work best for ambient a la Lull (also Lustmord and other artists where sub-bass rumblings constitute 50% of the music or more)??

My only cans are the 7506s at the moment which I am wrapped with, but I have noticed some people mentioning that the Beyer DT770s extend similarly in the bass department while also being more musical. I would also like to get a set of open headphones one day to really have my head swimming in Mick's drifts and drones...any suggestions?

By the way, I have a copy of Lounge by Quoit. Pretty much Mick Harris does drum'n'bass. I quite like it, but prefer the Scorn stuff much more. I'm not sure if Lounge was part of the Possible records re-release on Invisible records. I can burn this for you if you like.

SALUT!

Hmmm...let me think...Sennheiser HD600, all the way! Yes, I use Beyer DT770 (the old 600 ohm version) at work, and it is quite nice, too, but if you are looking for open, look no further than Sennheiser HD600. Not sure if shipping is going to kill you from Jan Meier, but he seems well liked around these parts. I've also heard that the 580 is a good compromise.

So I can recommend either one the Sennheiser HD600 (home system) or the Beyer DT770Pro (work system).

I have spent most of the last decade with V6/7506's, so know where you're coming from, too. You may be a little spoiled on the midbass -- they've done something there, I'm not sure what -- the HD600 is going to seem a little thin after that, but once you get used to it, you'll notice that the extension is nice and...erm...well, extended...and controlled. Exquisite! Just make sure that whatever amp you are using to go with it does not lack in the bass department. Actually, the Beyer DT770's might be a better way to go. They've got _great_ bass. But Headroom rates them lowly only because they need an amp.

Nope, got that one coming from my favorite mail-order business, ear-rational.com, but appreciate the offer. The Weakener seems to be OOP according to the Wordsound site, though...I tried a couple of retailers (my guy, demosrecs.it), so far, no luck, so I may be contacting you about that one...keep in touch! We will definitely have to recommend some other things to each other...

No probs Dusty. The Weakener is very very slow...think Scorn on 33rpm rather than 45. As always though, great atmospherics swirling around in the background with slow splintered beats and bass drones. Given you like most of Mick's other stuff, I am sure you will enjoy it

I have auditioned the HD600s and as much as I liked them, as you said they sounded thin to my ears. Maybe an amp is required there and those wizz-bang Clou cables people seem to mention from time to time.

In anycase, I just don't have the money for new cans at the moment...but there is nothing wrong with wishful thinking

SALUT!
