Soniccouture seems to make nice sample packs. I have their Novachord one, it is nice. :cool:

Wow. I love the novachord. Post some examples


Superimposed over old Soul Train videos or not? :tounge:

Also, I am streaming John Carpenter's various soundtrack works today at work. Be jealous.

I might be jelly.

Do you guys listen to LCD Soundsystem? I only just heard of them a month or two ago and holy crap, I love this band. It's kind of modern day synth pop, but still different. At first it was just the album This Is Happening, but now it seems just about anything I hear, I like.

Yeah, they're pretty good. "They've" (I think it's a one-guy-and-a-bunch-of-hired-hands project actually) been around for about 15 years (so some of their stuff is "throwback indie" now. :lol: ). Actually I thought they were on hiatus, but the Wiki says they are back.

There's honestly a lot of fairly interesting electronic music in the "indie" / alternative scene, has been for a while. What's interesting of course depends on individual taste, and navigating through the music scene is sometimes tough because it seems like everyone who has a laptop makes electronic music now. But, in another sense, it's kind of neat that the "dorky" synthesizer now pretty much dominates all of pop so hugely, from the mainstream to niche.

This is a good thing. More art > less art. More to choose from, and some stuff I've heard come out of bedroom studios is actually quite good.

Now, if I could just get myself to start listening to a broader array of stuffs, I would be in good shape. I just can't seem to shake this HUEG thing I have for hardcore underground German electro-industrial. :facepalm:

My brother has a spotify family account and let me get in on it. So for the past two months I've heard a bunch of stuff for the first time. 90s music is still new to me, so everything from this millennium has just been 'whatever those pesky kids have been up to' :lol:

Well, if it's from this century and it's popular, it's crap. Just keep that in mind.

I will say that I will support ANY record made in 1974. I don't think I've ever heard anything I didn't like from 1974

Usually the Top 100 charts from any era have a few clunkers (from my perspective), so I took a look at 1974.

At #28 is Paul Anka's "Having My Baby".

So, sorry, I will have to disagree with you. :lol:

I do think the 2016 charts are filled with more disposable pop than 1974. Donnie and Marie Osmond are on the Hot 100 of 1974, so you can't complain *too* much about Justin Bieber in 2016. But I'm not really seeing an artist with the musical stature of a Jackson 5 or Aretha Franklin or even John Denver on the 2016 charts.

(You've got a few modern Madonna types, where a lot of the appeal is style, like Rihanna... but a lot of the actual music in pop land just feels disposable to me. I would say this might be an "off my lawn" scenario if it weren't for the feeling that there's a lot of good music *not* in pop land.)

Nicely said.

So look, I had never heard of that song before so I looked it up. While it is certainly not my kind of thing, I think it's a lot better than some other crap I've heard, and really Elton John isn't my style either, and this tune has the same rhodes stuff on it and a rhides is good, so I'm found to give it a pass.
