Feelin' Groovy? It's Disco Week!

It's time for you clowns to get down with the downs! No, sorry, that was tasteless and unfunny. But anyways, this is Disco week and so if you want to pay tribute to this hundreds of years old musical tradition which draws inspiration from European, African as well as Aboriginal and Mongolian culture, you should head on over to our weekly theme thread. See you there, turkey!

Alva Noto - Transform (2001) Discussion

We listened to this album last week, recommended by Janszoon for the Strategies Against Architecture - The Avant Garde/Experimental Album Club:

Wikipedia actually has a pretty good description of his music, so I'll defer to that: Nicolai transforms sound by looping oscillators and tone generators. He does not use sequencers, but edits his work to give his compositions rhythmic structures. Clicks and glitches are not used as ornamental additions to the compositions but make up the essential rhythmic and harmonic elements of the work. He frequently samples electronic information transmission sounds such as fax tones, modem sounds and telephone pops and clicks are sampled and organised.
If you're intrigued give it a listen and join us in this week discussion here:

Album Discussion : Genesis - Selling England by the Pound (1973)

The PFACers have listened to one of the most celebrated records of the prog rock genre, Genesis' Selling England by the Pound from 1973. Now's the time for judgment and discussion. Is it a brilliant masterpiece pushing prog rock to the absolute heights of rock achievement or is it a pretentious, arty farty drivel pretending to be high art .. or something in the middle? Or something completely different?

Join in our discussion!

Monthly Themed Comps - FEBRUARY HAS BEGUN!

If you're reading this and plan to participate in Feb's comp, you have until the 10th of February to lock in your vote for the month's theme!
(Unfortunately, due to an operator error, this month's voting is not multiple choice, but I assure you that following months will be.)

Also, the format of the voting subjects has changed to accommodate a slight expansion in how general our themes can/will be. While we'll certainly still have woodenly specific themes... you now have the ability to choose, or suggest, more general themes than what was previously adopted. This will hopefully bring in more participants and include more listeners.

Now get participating!

The Bitrate Challenges : Round 2

There's been a (sometimes heated) debate on whether or not high quality files lead to a higher quality listening experience. Now everyone interested will get a chance to put their money or forum cred or whatever where their mouths are. The second part of the Bitrate Challenge tests how good you are at differentiating between different quality files.

In addition to possibly giving you an idea on what quality music you should get, more participants means more certainty in the results, so please take the test!

The Bitrate Challenges : Round 3

The next step in the bitrate challenges is figuring out if musicbanterers are able to identify lossless from high BR lossy files. This test is the simplest of the challenges so far, requiring you to only compare two sound clips.

Sounds easy? Answering it is! And with your (anonymous) answer, the results will be even better, so please take this test.

It's Art Rock Week! Art, or arty: that is the question

If there is a weekly theme so broad that you can put very different kinds of rock music in, probably every one of your favorite bands, it's this one. You're already thinking: *Isn't all rock music art?* What kind of art does Art Rock refer to? Your definition depends on how you answer this question.
What is it that you immediately think of when you hear "art rock"? It'll be interesting to see just how diverse this week's theme can get.
