    Looking for new music to get into. Any genre is fine really, and I wanted a place where people could post what they're listening to currently.

    I'll kick the thread off with some songs:

    Hey, howdy. Maybe a music megathread is a good idea, we have the one for movies and anime so it's kinda weird that we don't have one already. we have the 2017 music thread but thats not really the same.

    anyway to kick off this thread; what are some albums you've been listening to lately? any cool recommendations?

    Right now I've been listening to a lot of the album Game Theory - The Big Shot Chronicles, which is an extremely 80s power pop album. Absolutely fucking adoring it, sort of reminds me of the cure but better. heres a couple of tracks.

    Game Theory - Where You Going Northern
    Game Theory - Crash into June

    Ooh nice thread RODAN. Glad to have a megathread for people who don't follow new releases which isn't a "favorite album" thread.

    Listened to Autobahn earlier; love Kraftwerk. Great band. Relly innovtive for their time. Also listened to Steve Reich - Electric Counterpoint (RODAN I want your thoughts on this) and it is something I *really* want to see performed live by someone because of the way that it is played (someone records all of the different lines (exc. the main line) one by one before the performance and then plays the main line live with the rest playing behind it). Steve Reich in general is pretty great and everyone should check him out imo; I really like minimalism, and his music is a perfect example of good minimalism.

    A band that I'm currently exploring a little is Mass of Fermenting Dregs (discography), which are a Japanese alt rock/post rock/shoegaze group. First discovered them when their album "World Is Yours" (embedded below) appeared in my YT recommendations, and which is an enjoyable listen, and then got re-recc'd it by Asek a few months later and was reminded that they existed; my favorite track on that album is definitely かくいうもの (Such Things) due to its addictive driving sound, among other things, making it a really enjoyable listen on the whole. Currently got S/T (also embedded below) playing in the Walrus discord and I'm enjoying it, and I'm just slowly working through their discography really, or at least what I can find of it. Strongly recommend them as a band.

    Been a Black Metal day here. This particular song has been on repeat a few times. Pretty damn good.
