Incidentally I underwent a profound cultural change when I ended up in the boone Asheville side of the state. Widespread Panic, Phish, the string cheese incident, refried salmon, Dave Matthews, rusted root, etc.

I became a woodsman on a 21 speed specialized and lived out of a north face bag. Fifty percent of my time was spent at a coffee shop playing bongos and wash boards with a blue grass band. It was a wonderful period of my life.

I would eat organic burritos the size of a football for six bucks. And the Appalachian state University library was incredible. Free computers and everything. It was a neo-hippies paradise. They even had a 'hospitality house' where u could take showers and eat meals for free.

I lived between a Volkswagen Westphalia, a tent, and a series of college girl couches for almost eight years straight.... then went back again for another couple years at 31. Best memories I got, bruh, besides the San Jose period at 15.



this sounds like half the people in colorado

like in denver you're allowed to just put up a fucking tent on the sidewalk. it's all good. there are "homeless" people everywhere just camping. but...you can tell that a lot of them are just roaming around types. young, normal looking people who are just out there doing their thing.

when they had the all star game at coors field, the cops made them all move to a park over near capitol hill. but then after that they just come back. they aren't all bumming money or anything, some, but not most. they're just out there camping on the sidewalks. the shit cracks me up. clouds of weed smoke coming out of tents everywhere. it's nuts.

it's a lot different than birmingham. in birmingham they pretty much arrest all the homeless people, but they also have a murder every day.

Bro. I didn't know this band existed. Why didn't anybody say something? Did y'all know about these guys? Andy? This is like THE quintessential Indy prog rock band if I ever heard one, and it's all new. I feel like this chick has brought prog rock back with some authority.

And the drummer uses a china plate like bruford, too?

Just listen to random songs in the background and the sweet spots will catch ur ear. But don't focus on it, cuz you'll get burned out to fast. Don't try to listen.

I listened to the first one and it kinda worked like you said, just switch it off, catch the magistral solo, not be too annoyed at the pointless repetition before and after. But I end up with a kind of annoyed aftertaste after.

This girl should have found herself righteous individuals as inspired as her, the band is just lukewarm.

But the solo was surely righteous. Surely righteous.

She would have been a metal legend back in the day.

Playing with Black Flag or something. Some people that can match her spirit. But then sometimes it's the failing of the lead him or herself. They are control freak and need submissive bandmates, step on their own hose.

Fuck it, I'll give a couple other tracks a try.

I've been through around sixty songs so far in Amazon. Here's five I'd put in my favorites.

Laughing John
Magic Moshroom
First Thing to Pop is the Eye
In The Court of the Trolls
Indian Driving

Still Leo Flash' is my favorite so far. It's got a trademark crimsony sound with those ugly diminished chords. Could almost sound like Crimson's 'Red' rearranged.

I can promise u that this trio greatly appreciated the Jonas Hellborg, Shawn Lane, Jeff Sipes trio, because they - hedvig mollestad - sound like a more amateur version of the other.... so much so that it's almost identical style improvisation. I bet you could dig up somewhere her either writing or talking about that influence. King crimson is obvious. Mahavishnu sounding too.

Lol go listen to Crimson's 'one more red nightmare' song beginning.... then listen to Leo Flash'.

Me and my guys did the same shit. Hahahahahaha. We were so blown away by how badass that song was ('red' too), we tried to figure out something like it and call it our own.

No doubt tho. Music like this is listened to differenty. Some demands detailed attention, others only peripheral attention.

It is the blend of irritatingly long solos and hidden, unexpected sweet spots in the groove, that is so frustrating about this genre. You have to just let it play in the back and trust your ear to alert u when something cool happens.

Sweet spot at 4:06 in Leo Flash'

https://streamable.com/dezruk

I need to inform uncle Bobby and uncle Billy (guitarist and drummer for KC) of this band immediately. This is absolute gold.

U see what I mean tho. A good prog band hides spots like this as if they were Easter eggs.

Shouldn't be tremendously, tremendously expensive because there's not a lot of hair. That's what graphite pencil artists hate the most. Hair.

On the upside, I believe it had a determining impact on establishing trap music.


What's the difference between dubstep and Skrillex? I mean, isn't Strillex dubstep and dubstep Skrillex? Or is he brostep? I have know idea why "dub" and why "step" but I am even at a greater loss as to why "bro".

If Ishkur is to be trusted, this is dub and this is bro. I can definitely see why brostep is more popular. Gramatik's piece is much better even though he's generaly neither dub nor bro nor step of any kind. But that's Gramatik. Many other pieces on Ishkur's list sound almost exactly like dub e.g. Godzilla. All in all, very little difference. Brostep seems to be merely more complicated, elaborate and aggressive and that's all.

That's Justice - Genesis. Better than dubstep, that's for sure. Stuff gets real right at 2:17.
