Title: Daydreaming
Artist: Murder Shoes
Year: 2015
Genre: Indie Rock
Nationality: American
Discography: One album
Position in discography: This is it

How ****ing weird is it that out of all the albums on RYM (which must number surely in the millions if not more) two random picks one after the other chose two albums with virtually the same title? Anyway, that aside, at least we're starting from the advantage of this not being Mariah Carey, so I already like it. Eleven tracks, nothing over four minutes (well,one, but just barely, a few seconds): I'm liking it more by the second, and I have yet to push play. Perhaps that will be the point where I stop liking it. Let's go.

Hmm. Decent voice. Didn't expect another female, don't know why. Kind of dreamy in a way, but the music has a hard edge. Kind of like this I must say. Yeah but it quickly becomes boring. Is it the “indie” curse? I think the music is pretty okay and she's a good singer but I just find myself failing to care. And caring less as it goes on. Meh. Did she just meow? Holy ****, now I'm bored.

In fairness, it's ok but I doubt I'd be coming back for more.

She sounded fine but she was a bit boring and I was never grasped by the music.

It's a "meh" from me.

Two stars because I didn't hate it.

Towards the end I kind of felt I might be getting it, and after a few more listens, well maybe, but I have to listen to every album released this year and so I don't have time to revisit it. The last track was pretty good though.

I tried Rate Your Music for another random album and got some obscure album by "Mr. Curt" that wasn't available anywhere. Spotify did have another one, but I'm not even sure it's the same Mr. Curt since two appeared when searching Spotify... So... I tried RYM again and hit something actually quite familiar to me. An album I own, even, but rules are rules so...

Overkill - Killbox 13


https://rateyourmusic.com/release/al...l/kill_box_13/
https://open.spotify.com/album/6hM0QkgzL53H8eEO7bIEgv

Can't say that I've really listened to it properly for years. It's not really their best album as far as I remember it, but I did keep it when I sold some of the Overkill stuff I had a few years ago... Hmm... Well ok, guess it's a chance to reacquaint myself with this album.

I'm checking out the Death Metal Album Club album right now, so this will have to wait a bit.

Murder Shoes - Daydreaming (2015)

If there's one thing that's strikingly apparent about this album, it's that the shorter song lengths here work in the album's favor. If the songs were longer, many of these song ideas would wear thin after a while, hell some still do, despite the brevity of the songs. Also, some of these lyrics made me cringe a little; case in point: "do you think like Friedrich Nietzsch-ee? / And do / you smoke weed?"
Furthermore, most of these songs sounded like they could've been written in the mid-late 80s, making the album as a whole come of as very derivative, but I suppose that's par for the course.

Still, there were some songs that were good and consistent throughout. I especially liked the closer "How Does It Feel".
To me, this is a pretty clear 6/10

@TH: Are you going to make a thread for week 3 of this btw, or are you planning on just dropping it?

I guess it depends on who's still interested. No point clogging up the forum with a new thread every week if only one or two people are bothered to post in it, myself included; and you know I'm seriously busy so the chances of me getting involved personally in this now are about as high as my suddenly developing a passion for Hardcore New York Punk.

Mind you, there's nothing to stop you (or anyone else) opening a thread if you want. Still, week 2 had two albums and something like fifteen replies, so, you know, maybe it's dead...

I could try making a Week 3 thread tomorrow, but if there's no interest, yeah, might as well let it die. Though I might keep listening to some randomly generated albums in my own time, you never know when something truly great could turn up.
