What were people's favourite new albums/bands/gigs of 2019? I really enjoyed the two EPs from a London band called Dry Cleaning - they have a punk sound, with spoken word vocals that veer from the mundane to the surreal without missing a beat. This track is a good example:
@satsuma fuck, so many. The Acid Flashback At Nightmare Beach released "Luminous, Abysmal" that I adore. I cant think of a good descriptor for it, like an emo-ish clusterfuck of genres lol. (thats also a way to describe some of @Superdestroyer s music, he released Pets this year.). Prince Daddy and the Hyena released Cosmic Thrill Seekers, Heart Attack Man released Fake Blood, Commander Salamander released Off The Goop, Origami Angel released Somewhere City. 2019 has been a good year for emo.
I released an album this month and I'm super proud of it! Please give it a listen if you have a few minutes :)
Mine and @fatheroftheyear's record label was featured in the alternative!
Found an old video of me jamming with a friend and it sounds surprisingly interesting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP-F-I_nOZg
Free software for musicians & my set-up
this was a jumbled mess, here's a list of free software for musicians that is good quality:
Hydrogen - drum machine
Zynaddsubfx - simple and powerful synth
Sunvox - Synth thats complicated to use but eaiser to do higher power stuff than zynaddsubfx
Guitarix - Amp Emulator
Ardour - DAW
Audacity - Recording
LMMS - fruity loops kinda deal
Mixxx - Wonderful DJing program
Rakarrack - FX, haven't tried it but looks good
thats all I got, dont pay for software<3
If you wanna spend a lot of time learning a synthesizer program but its worth it imo, check out www.warmplace.ru/soft/sunvox/
Sunvox is incredibly versatile, you can do all sorts of shit with it. has a learning curve, but its well worth it. easily my top synth program. another plus: it runs on fucking anything. it has apps for all phones, any OS you can throw at it, everything. Its the DOOM of synth programs. I kinda wanna build a midi interface tailored specifically for it cause fuck it why not
I'm an amateur musician/producer, using #FOSS applications exclusively to record and produce my music.
My main musical interests are in my bio, but I'm interested in pretty much any style.
I'm looking forward to interacting with people on this instance and being a part of this growing community.
So I'm going to shamelessly plug. I put out a split w hospital bracelet at midnight and you should check it out if you want. Itll.be on all streaming platforms in a week :) https://fourthbase.bandcamp.com/album/silver-cactus
