    it’s a concept album about the struggle people have with religion, basically. It’ll resonate with people who aren’t religious or who struggle with god and stuff

    the first four songs were the singles, but I don’t want to hear a word from you until you at least get to “seven devils,” which is the first non-single track

    every time you think a song is about to become monotonous he changes it up with something and it’s always perfect

    There are just so many albums that dropped this week. Will take me awhile to catch up.

    I've sampled a few.

    Interested in SOAK, Hembree, Pure Bathing Culture, and Craig Finn, The Mountain Goats, Lamb, and King Gizzard, in addition to the albums I posted earlier.

    I hadn’t either up until about a year or so ago. It seems to work the same as mp3 provided your device has the codex. I play through Plex mostly. I think you may need to convert for iTunes though.

    This link may help...

    So excited for this Saturday. Just listened to the Big Red Machine album and I forgot how good it was. Seeing this https://pioneerworks.org/programs/37d03d/

    The venue is super cool in red hook, brooklyn in a gutted brick machine shop that doubles as an art exhibit hall.

    [​IMG]



    May 4 – Big Red Machine + other performances including all participants in 37d03d

    37d03d is a two-night performance collaboration coming out of a five-day residency at Pioneer Works. Featuring headline performances from Boys Noize on Friday and Big Red Machine (Aaron Dessner of The National + Justin Vernon of Bon Iver) on Saturday, all participants in 37d03d will perform in some capacity during both concerts. The collaboration features musicians: Aaron Dessner, Anaïs Mitchell, Andrew Broder, Boys Noize, Crystal Quinn, Eric D. Johnson, Eric T. Carlson, Greg Fox, Josh Kaufman, JT Bates, Justin Vernon, Kate Stables, Mike Lewis, Resistance Revival Chorus, Shahzad Ismaily, Sinkane, and Trever Hagen. Artists will be presenting projects like Big Red Machine, Bonny Light Horseman (Eric D. Johnson, Anaïs Mitchell, Josh Kaufman), This is the Kit (Kate Stables), and more.

    These performances will be developed on-site at Pioneer Works during a one week residency that encourages an open and expressive creative process. The result will be two nights of performances that are spontaneous, participatory, and constantly evolving.

    I liked Big Red Machine’s latest album a lot better than the last Bon Iver album imo

    I'm gonna give you the like for accuracy but I enjoy what Bon Iver's last album was moving towards. Seemed a linear progression from For Emma, Forever Ago to the s/t.

    I really like Bon Iver's first album (obviously) and think the second is very strong; however, when I hear him now, I just hear a fabricated, gimmicky voice and word-salad lyrics.

    Saw Camp Cope last night, they were tremendous. Georgia's voice is somehow better in person. Thin Lips opened, and they were really good as well.

    Well, that probably centers on my issue with Vernon. Studio work sounds too processed to me. Too contrived. Ironical, even. I can see his next album being deconstructed even more, as 22AM has hinted. First two albums were thick and layered. 22AM was fractured and compartmentalized. Next might be simple and unrefined. Perhaps lo-fi.

    I've watched some live video, specifically of Creeks (I'm not spelling it the stupid way, but it's my favorite song off the album). Interesting live changes, and interesting how he is controlling the autotuned harmonies with the keyboard.

    I am with you 100%. He has a horrible voice. It’s not what he’s about and it didn’t matter on any album, IMO. Point is I feel he overcompensates for it, and it’s distracting in a good way or bad way depending upon perception. It’s kind of the same deal with TWOD, and I get it. I want to like it and gave it a chance but I just, don’t.

    I won't go quite as far as to say that Vernon has a horrible voice (because I don't think so), but I do agree that he overcompensates (via autotune) for the stress put on his voice from transitioning between falsetto and lower registers. That's probably why he became interested in autotune in the first place. His voice practically cracks when singing, so autotune masks the harsh transitions and unburdens his vocal cords.

    Some people like heavily autotuned singers. Some people don't. Whatever. Music is subjective. Me? I just hear a gimmick masking faults.

    To call what Vernon used on that album autotune and to compare him to T-Pain is pretty disingenuous I'm. There are obviously vocal effects used on the album, but it's pretty complex program created by Vernon's engineer that allows him to add those harmonies real-time as he chooses. I think it's pretty fucking genius honestly, and I love the finished product while I understand why others might not. Here's an article about it that explains it way better than I did.

    Sorry, that was worded extremely poorly. Like Adam Granduciel, neither winning any vocal competitions ever which is fine they don't need to. They just flat out don't have range, pitch, etc.... in comparison to a lot of other music I listen to. So I was trying to come from that angle. Please keep in mind both produced top albums that got tons of play time from me. Not sure where I would rank them in an all time list but safe to say they are high.

    Also, Oh my God the Morby album is top notch. I enjoy it more and more each time I listen.

    I guess to each his own, but I love his voice for exactly what it is. It is not traditionally perfect, but thats what makes it great imo.
