I am gonna populate this weekly music thread and then I'll have to find some new music within a day or so for the next one. Sounds like fun :).

Love the vibraphone effect on the keys in that Yussef track. I've come to believe that the ear often prefers a somewhat wandering and even random effects, like the vibraphone Hz probably isn't exactly 1/121 BPM or whatever, or they don't use a click track, something like that. The ear is such a sucker for novelty and change. But even superseding sometimes that (especially 4 da kidz) are social pressures and/or memories that get associated with musics. Bands, genres, personal projects, anything.

Absolutely no one here will like Snakehips - WATER. feat. Bryce Vine. It's still low budget shit no one likes, that I like, which means, actually, nothing. Sure is easy to criticize the shit out of L.A.-based artists at this point, though, honestly.

Absolutely no one here will like Poetically - Girls in High Heels 👠. It's even lower budget shit no one likes, that I like, which means, actually, nothing. Sure is hard to criticize one guy with a greenscreen and a DAW, though, honestly.

Absolutely everyone here will love Mr. Moustache VS Splice Vocals. It's still low budget shit no one hates, that I also don't hate, which means, actually, we are best friends.

P.S. I think someone is planning something music-y for next week's jit.si meetup.! ANd it's not me.!!

Wrote you a PM, but figured others could get a use out of it as well: you're almost certainly getting timed out. Whenever a new PM is attempted, server issues it an fnid for a limited time, so if you take more than 5-10(?) minutes, it won't pass. Personally, I've been working around it by writing stuff in text editor and copy-pasting.

To add to this, regular comments can time out as well.

I’ve also used the same solution for longer Pubski posts in the past (or longer posts in general).
