Ok…so opspe is my partner now.

I know what he had in store for you…

…I’m hating you beyond all hate right now, Cale. (jk)


If another latecomer comes along, then I’ll switch with you and opspe will be your partner.

In any case, if something comes up, then let me know here (or via PM or something.) Learn about music you haven’t heard of before!

I’m going to post pseudo-review things based on whatever songs I get, starting with today’s.

I’m going to post my selections and received songs for y’all to enjoy, if that’s alright.

Day 1

I gave my buddy “Sleeping Ute,” by Grizzly Bear.

This is what Fun Police said:

“That song you gave me was great--it had a really cool, relaxed yet passionate sort of feel. I really enjoyed it a lot.”

He gave me “Karma Police,” by Radiohead, which I already know and love.

I’ll post Day 2 when he gives it to me.

All right, time to get started.

Day 1: Untitled

This is a very ambient piece. In fact, it’s so subtle that I can only barely hear it even when my sound is turned all the way up. It’s quite relaxing, as a soft sound reminiscent of the ocean plays throughout. Either that, or it’s the sound of the blood rushing through my head.

Never mind. I just got one.

Sorry, I think I sent you the normal one instead of the acoustic

I enjoy this version a lot, but I get the vids mixed up at times
This was the one I meant to send you, sorry mate :/

Ah, it’s all right.

They’re both all right to me, but it’s probably not something I would listen to as frequently as some of my other music.

Again, I’ll also suggest not embedding links here.

…and please don’t flood this thread with embeds (post links/embeds on walls or via PMs.)

And again, if you decide to post on here, don’t embed it. Just link to it.

I don’t really mind embeds or sharing music you’ve been shown (in fact, I’d encourage that), but I can’t enter the Music General thread now. Too many embeds. My computer slows down too much.

Hope everyone’s enjoying themselves so far.

Lolzers and I started early, because we’re just that cool.

Yesterday, I sent him Soon It Will Be Cold Enough To Build Fires by Emancipator, and he sent me TAKE IT BACK by Miracle of Sound, which I really liked.

Today, the exchange was my 3055 by Olafur Arnalds, for his Boulevard of Broken Dreams Bluegrass Cover by Cornbread Red, which is better than the original, by far.

Now Lolzers,

Best muzik buddehs 5evar <3

Insult his mental state.

I’ll be your buddy, Penz0id. I’ll get something on your wall.

(Heads up: I hope you like boy bands.)

Okay, so for Day 2, I got ""Kill Your Coworkers" by Flying Lotus.":http://youtu.be/5z1eeVJQL7I It was interesting, and I think you should all check it out.

I gave my buddy this:

He hasn’t responded back, so I’ll post that with Day 3.

Day Two
Ermac sent me Diamond Dust by Jeff Beck
And I sent him Distrust by Jubei and Alex Perez
Diamond Dust is a beautiful song, one I’ll definatly listen to later.
Day Three (today)
Ermac sent me Danger Money by UK
I sent him We Control The Vertical by Klute
I like the songs he’s sending me so far, they’ll make a great addition to what I have already
I hope he likes the songs I’m sending as well

Distrust
-Pretty good song. This type of music keeps me focused for some reason.

We control the Vertical
BROTHER BROTHER BROTHER BROTHER
This song reminds me of something out of a soundtrack. It wouldn’t feel out of place in a fast-paced action oriented video game of some kind. I’m on my second listen right now, and it seems oddly calming, despite the high BPM. I’m drifting through a void here….

There’s no need to bump this thread (with just “bump” anyway.) I’ll post once the week is over, so it’s not going to lock or anything during that time. (And it’s sorta against the rules.) Thanks though.

After that, we can determine what else we want to do, if anything.

This is really cool. I’ll participate in the next session, because my laptop will be available to me on and off for the next week. I expect to be miserable, because I have a very narrow musical taste and tend to heavily dislike anything that’s coarse or aesthetically loud. (Which seems to be the current trend of what people like.) Still, it’s a chance to find new favourites, and push my top-tier of music onto an unwilling subject. >:D

I’ll resist the temptation to make all the songs Iron & Wine songs.

Done and done.

That was really interesting. I definitely got on a tl;dr spree while writing about the music I posted for Fifths. In return, I got just as much tl;dr, and quite a bit of traditional and folk music from him.

I might as well add the songs I posted (for no apparent reason).

1. Lost Words – Hatsune Miku Append

2. Battle Metal – Turisas

3. Heian Alien – Tutti Sound (Touhou)

4. The Way Home ~ Ending Theme – Terranigma (SNES)

5. Duvet – Bôa

6. What Planet is This!? – Cowboy Bebop + Bloom About Midnight – tanigon (Touhou)

7. Happy Little Boozer – Korpiklaani

I hope you also enjoyed the week Fifths.

I’m still waiting for the last two songs though.

Aw shucks, I wish I could have been in the first part of this. Is there a way for people to get in for the second part?

@Zarathh
Yeah, Verbose’ll put you in. It’s been about 6 or 7 days since it started (depending on where you are), so the new round won’t be too far.

Yeah, I think that in 9 or so hours, most people should be done with their week.

Once that time comes, I think I’ll ask again what kind of week you guys want.

  • You can’t pick songs from your favorite genre
  • Song titles must begin with a vowel
  • Is composed of one word
  • Must be about love
  • Must have lyrics, etc.

Or we can change the selection format:

  • A different person each day
  • You share with one person, that person shares with someone else, that person shares with someone else, etc.

Since there were some other people who wanted to jump in a day later (or a couple of days later,) I think I’ll want to make the time to join at least two days, no more than three (four, max.) But I think we can discuss preferences for that week.

If it’s possible, I’d be interested in joining. I know I’m really late to the party, but yeah. As for the specifics for the week, I don’t think I’d care; it would all be awesome.

I enjoyed it. It was nice to expand my horizons and all that. I’m going to be passing on next week though. My music library is limited enough as it is and I have a lot of work I need to get done. As interesting as the “different people a day” and “posting outside of your favorite genre” things sound.

Click for Sauce


So I’m guessing everyone who’s participating is done.

I’m down with re-randomizing and organizing another week, but I wanted to see who’s interested again. Maybe a week was a little long for some people if you didn’t like any of their tastes, so that could be cut back to 5 days or 3 (or even 1 and we mix partners up a little more.)

I had talked about themes or challenges so that you didn’t have your whole repertoire to choose from.

But mostly, before we started another week, I wanted to see who’s interested.

  • So just let me know if you want in,
  • and tell me if you have an idea for another round.

I’ll edit in suggestions for the round here. Just look for the girl on page 2 to see (I may make a new post for page 3)

Still interested.

Personally, I’d keep the format. I think it makes more sense to still play songs that you like. However, one restriction I think would be interesting would be if you couldn’t choose the same songs – or even better, all of the artists have to be different this time.
