"It was 70 years ago today, Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play."
Happy 50th to one of the greatest albums of all time.
"Day in the Life" is a contender for best Beatles song.
Fun fact: Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys was so hell-bent on being better than the Beatles, that he actually had a mental break down while listening to this album.
The first time I tripped on acid my friends and I listened to the Beatles, and Day in the Life was without a doubt the best song on this album. I'll never forget how when Paul's part came on, I thought he was singing into my ear as his words traveled down my spine and exploded on my tailbone into a feeling that I can only describe as purple.
The SMiLE sessions were basically the Sgt. Pepper era of the Beach Boys. The Beatles put out Sgt. Pepper before Brain Wilson could release his SMiLE album and upon listening to the Beatles new record, went into despair.
Yesterday my Electronic Music playlist hit the front page, a lot of you wanted a gym playlist, here it is
I imagine this will not be very well received but I figured if you liked the lighter side of edm maybe you'll dig the heavier side, if not. I apologize in advance. Turn your bass up.
Today's and Yesterday's Spotify Playlists:
We have a little community that we're growing- art, music, stories, artist interviews, all just for fun, hoping to get more writers (sci fi, fantasy, poets, etc) come drop in if you like :) http://electriccampfire.net
No kidding. I was listening to the someone linked yesterday while hitting the bong and eating pizza, after listening to some of the songs in the playlist I feel tempted to put on my running shoes and sprint around the block.
EDIT: fuck it going for a run
EDIT: ok im back.. I went outside with my $3 earphones from aliexpress, plugged it into my phone and started the spotify playlist.. after 10 seconds of running I trip in the earphone's wire because my stoned ass forgot to put them in my ears. Bruised my knees and elbows, still bleeding. 2/10 shortest run of my life. I guess I'll stick to my stoner music, I'm safe inside.
EDIT: since my $3 earphones are now busted, can anyone recommend some good lightweight ones that don't pop out of your ear during gym/running, while maintaining good sound so I can listen to dope ass fucking music like the 2 mixes above?
LAST EDIT: since ppl asking in pms: both playlists are from the same guy, I discovered his channel yesterday when a commenter linked to it. He only has 6k subs, which is nothing compared to the quality of the mixes he puts out. If you're feeling generous subscribe to him, as I have a small YT channel with 100 subs too, I know how hard it is to get noticed.
This is disgusting.
Thank you. ❤️
Hey guys. I've converted this to a Google Play Music playlist for you (and me).
it's a gym playlist bruh
I can still sing all the lyrics to this song after all these years.
Used to be in a band and this was one of the only covers we would play. One of our last shows was also one of our biggest. Full bar, everyone's having a great time dancing and drinking and just enjoying. So much fun. We bust this song out at the peak of the night and get to the chorus line of "Find nothing but faith in nothing" and I had a last second idea to just back away from the mic like all the cool singers do and see what happens. Well of course the entire bar shouted that line (musically, everything else stops, so we're just silent on stage while they're shouting). We then jump right back in and keep going. One of the coolest moments on stage of my life. So awesome and just gave me chills. Such a fun fucking song.
This was like the first song i ever downloaded from napster. I remember playing it on my WinAmp with some sick custom skin.
Reminds me of being young and not knowing what real problems were .
omg I thought this was from the filthy subreddit but here I am on /sub/music in the year 2017
Oh god a 12 minute Pink Guy track? This is gonna be horrible. I'm excited.
Take all of my Chromosomes!

Working? Studying? Need New Music? I have a playlist for you. (500+ of the chillest electronica, chillstep, house, etc..)
This went viral on imgur, figured this community might appreciate this list as well! I've been getting some really good feedback from folks who normally aren't into this genre!
Here's the list!
You can join our community to submit music here! We're encouraging users to submit content, write stories, talk about festivals, talk about your creative passion, etc. There's a lot of negativity out there in the world right now, I hope this brings some light to your day. Have a good one <3
I've been listening to this on and off since you posted it on imgur and am about 500 songs into it and I can confirm it's a very nice playlist
Thanks! I'm also currently looking for music to run/exercise to, got a playlist for this?
Sort by most recent, I add as much quality as I can almost daily. Some people think it's too big but I think it's nice to be able to have a big gallery of songs and not hear one more than once unless it's by your own choosing!
I can't listen to music with lyrics, especially if it's something I know, if I'm trying to work or read. I found this really nice, chilled lo-fi hip hop YouTube stream which is perfect for me. Ranges from none to very little lyrics (bar samples) and I also found this lovely track based on a Zelda game theme in there, I don't remember which...I want to say it was Ocarina Of Time, but can't be 100%. It had Navi in it!

It's Chris Bear playing kitchen trash (pots , pans, whatever) and percussion, played back on a vari-speed tape recorder. The rest you have to figure out yourself grasshopper. -CT
I'm excited about how music is consumed now in many ways. I mean I wish more people listened to albums from front to back more often and paused before declaring it THE BEST EVER or THIS IS SHIT. I give albums 5 spins to properly sit with them. As for the interview, the author was super kind and nice I just have boundaries and I wont dig deep into certain topics. Boundaries are good! As for sites and all that stuff. Pitchfork has been so supportive to us through the years as have fans and other sites, we feel super lucky. I'd like to think we aren't at a stage where a site could "destroy" our career since most people I know don't read criticism anymore and just listen to their freinds. I know one thing, I haven't had a review change the way I think about an album in a LOOOOONG time, if maybe ever? It's always curious and seemingly arbitrary and I enjoy the writing so much, so I'm glad it's still an industry that's alive and kicking, but I'd be lying if I said I know how it works...lastly THANK YOU for your kind words. I hope you don't cry too much! :) -Ed
Hey you guys!
I have a question about the landscape of music molding with social media and the internet in general, parallel to Grizzly Bear releasing music.
In the Pitchfork article released yesterday, Ed and Chris discuss music streaming and how everything has shifted in recent years. And then there is a moment where the interviewer seemingly crosses the line with a probing question in an attempt to get Ed to open up about what has been going on in his life recently. It seems a bit awkward, but it could be the nature of the format being print. But, I find there to be subtext here, as it is a Pitchfork interview. And Pitchfork is one of the cultural titans of indie music who have kicked a lot of what goes on now into gear. I say this as someone who has read them for quite some time now, and do think there is a place for them. But, at the same time they can ruin a band with a bad review or a snarky comment. They are these gatekeepers that kind of push a bit of contempt for not being in the 'know.'
So, with the nature of what there platform is and who they are and what they represent, is there a layer sensitivity or contempt for the exploitation by these commodities such as Pitchfork and their like now?
Obligatory: The first time I listened to Two Weeks, I had tears in my eyes. The first time I listened to Will Calls, (Marfa Demo) I had tears in my eyes. The first time I listened to Three Rings, I had tears in my eyes. Thank you for making the lush and complex music of fragmentation and harmony that you do. Life is full of context and your songs carry the quality of our convoluted nature of emotion.
I think that means I need to start microdosing -CB
Congrats! You just explained terrorism.
Which sucks, because it just means that our lives get shittier and they find the next target with the least security. On and on it goes until we're locked down so much that you won't even want to go outside anymore
I can imagine security at concerts are going to skyrocket
I have some friends who went tonight. They texted when they got there that the place was rammed with kids/teens. Can't bear thinking about it.
"Alternative rock" might be slightly misleading
I've seen FM about 5 times now I think. The first two times was at Irish Fair in St. Paul, MN.
After the first night, Nate and Dennis were down off the stage so my buddy and I go over to fanboy. Nate pulls an entire bottle of Jameson from his pant leg and we stood there smoking cigs and drinking this bottle with these two dudes for over an hour. Incredibly nice guys and you can tell they just love music. I will forever love this band.
The Clash - Rock The Casbah [Funk]
Yeah, I'd say more "Irish Punk" than "Alternative Rock".
I swear this song gets posted every week on this sub
I often have a really hard time deciphering the words in rap (call me old, but I'm still trying), but this song is so spoken so clearly by both rappers. I love it.
For what it's worth, most of Run The Jewels' stuff is similar. If you enjoy this, definitely check out their 3 albums.
It gets better every time tho 👉🤛
"Toby is a part of HR, so he's really not a part of our family and actually Toby is divorced so he's not really part of any family."
Good stuff, but I prefer his rhythmic American poetry.
Well, he did torture Michael with his awfulness
It's funny that Michael hates Toby because Michael is actually a really nice guy that just wants people to be his friend, but even the nicest, friendliest people sometimes clash with their co-workers.
