"Lil Boy" - Death Grips (Alt Hip-Hop/Experimental Hip-Hop/Experimental Electronic)

Album cover is NSFW

"Ex Lion Tamer" - Wire (Punk)

"blkswn" - Smino (Hip-Hop/Jazz Rap)

"Mad Nice" - DANGERDOOM (Hip-Hop)

Trying something where I only post genre titles instead. I felt like I wasn't characterizing the songs well enough and I was forcing opinions that may not necessarily be universal.

Thanks for sharing this. The lyrics are quite applicative to so many situations, and I think that is a testament to the genius behind the sound design as a whole. Having been through a harsh breakup (and still recuperating from that experience), this song really speaks volumes about how someone (or something I guess) can stay on one's mind

Statistics are nobody's friend, but life has a weird way of trying to buddy up with math.

I've found a lot of solace in the threads you post and the music you share and I've never properly thanked you for that.

I feel you, man. I grew up listening to The Who thanks to my dad, and this song has always struck a chord (no pun intended) with me.

"Full of Fire" - The Knife

A nine minute thought provoking banger (with a pretty crazy music video too)

"Pork Soda" - Glass Animals

I didn't care much for Glass Animals last album even though I loved Zaba, but this track really stuck out to me (I think it's the pineapples)

"Redbone" - Childish Gambino

Ever since I saw Get Out this song has been in the back of my mind

That's it for this week. I haven't been able to listen to a lot of music because finals are coming up.

"HUMBLE." - Kendrick Lamar

I love this song and I love this video.

"Ain't It Funny" - Danny Brown

Danny talks about some pretty dark things in this song and Jonah Hill's music video is surprisingly perfect for this song.

"Takyon" - Death Grips

I've been re-listening to a lot of Death Grips recently, and this is just such a visceral and perfectly aggressive song.

"Emily" - Joanna Newsom

Joanna Newsom has opened my eyes to contemporary American folk music in the best way possible.

"Chanel" - Frank Ocean

This song has really captivated me since it came out. It's so smooth and Frank talks about some really big topics in this song. Plus I just love the way the vocals slide over each other.

"Restless" - Jana Hunter

Thanks to cgod for introducing me to this artist!

Thanks for this! It'll make my long night of studying much easier.

Thank you so much. I really needed this.

That line of argument doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If commas meant "and" then why not use semicolons instead? (I'm not trying to argue with you; I'm just putting into text something I noticed.)

"Green Light" -Lorde

Disclaimer: I love Lorde, and this piano ballad is fantastic. The music perfectly compliments the tone of the song, and the slight vocal effects that Lorde uses only serve to further what's going on in Lorde's mind.

"No One Knows Me Like the Piano" -Sampha

If you haven't heard Sampha's newest album: GO LISTEN TO IT!!! Sampha carries so much soulful emotion in his voice. On top of that, his piano playing is fantastic and his lyricism brings him to new heights.

"Too Much" -Drake ft. Sampha

Honestly, I really only like this song because Drake talks about Houston and I have a strange pride for my birthplace. However, I think the beat is really nice and Sampha is great. Drake's bars are pretty classic Drake, so if you're into that then it's a pretty great song.

"Doug Stamper" -Open Mike Eagle ft. Hannibal Buress

Yes that Hannibal Buress.

"All Caps" -MF DOOM

I love DOOM. And his collaboration album with Madlib is my all time favorite album. I highly suggest everyone give this a shot.

"Snowing" -Daggerfall Soundtrack

This is my favorite video game (for many more reasons than I could fit in this small blurb) and the music is absolutely captivating. It added so much to the atmosphere of the game. I especially love this song because you can almost here the influence for the Skyrim main theme (which would make sense given that the province of Skyrim is kinda snowy).

"Pretentious Friends" -Modeselektor ft. Busdriver

This song BUMPS. I don't even know what it is about this song that I like so much, but I've listened to it at least twice a day for the past week.

"Ann Wants to Dance" -Papooz

This is a nice laid back indie song.

"Hey Mami" -Sylvan Esso

The minimal production coupled with Amelia Meath's vocals creates a mesmerizing soundscape.

"Mary Jane Love" -NoName

NoName is a spectacular lyricist and her beats have a nice classic hip hop influence.

"Why You Never Became a Dancer" -Whitehouse

Whitehouse is nuts. It's harsh and abrasive and like nothing you've ever heard.

Sounds like I'll enjoy him cause I love all of Hellfyre Gang!
