The Send Someone Something They Dont Listen To but May Like Thread
 
The idea is simple. If you have an album that you think another member would like but they do not typically listen to that kind of music (as far as you know) then send it to them!

I do ask that you post on here what you are sending, to whom, and a picture of the album cover. And by all means let once you have received something let the rest of the board know if you liked it or not. (Not a review necessarily but an overview)
And of coarse do not forget the PM of upload album!

Now do not get this confused with the Trading Post, as that is sending someone something you know they will like within what you think there musical boundaries are. This is to further enhance that with no set trade dates or partners.

To nonsubmissivewife:

The Tallest Man On Earth - The Wild Hunt

http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:-...548638.jpg&t=1

From what I can tell you like a lot of indie/acoustic type rock so perhaps you will like this if you havnt heard it already. Its his newest album.

Paedantic Basterd 12-31-2010 04:19 PM

I like this idea. I just need to get to know peoples' tastes before I send away.

RVCA 12-31-2010 04:33 PM

Send me something, Pedestrian! We have similar tastes, I think.

Paedantic Basterd 12-31-2010 05:07 PM

I also have a hard time making suggestions that people aren't already aware of. I'm probably one of the least-progressed listeners who posts here regularly! I'll trawl your lastFM for a bit, RVCA, and see if I come up with a worthwhile suggestion.

EDIT: Thank god you can search libraries alphabetically. I think I have one.

For RVCA

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_nsCT3EFoxK...songs-1998.jpg

Mercury Rev - Deserter's Songs

I see that you've been listening to 00s Flaming Lips, and Deserter's Songs is a more serious, darker take on that kind of fantastical sound.

bob. 12-31-2010 05:41 PM

i figured since you (Pedestrian) replied first i'd send something real tasty :)

for Pedestrian:
DEVO - Duty Now For The Future

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_uB-0D-gV8m...-_Duty_Now.jpg

this is Devo's second album (1979) and in my opinion their best

i looked through 15 pages of your top artist and feel that you have a knack for intelligent indie pop music and also a bit of a flare for some of the old post-punk type stuff.....this is a bit of both with some added sarcasm and a bit of synth....this is pre "Whip It" and very different (i uploaded the 2010 remaster with some great extras)

enjoy

Paedantic Basterd 12-31-2010 05:47 PM

Thank you, I've never known where to start with them.

RVCA 12-31-2010 05:57 PM

Woopee, thanks brah. In return I sent Pedestrian Wovenhand's Self-Titled Debut. Been on a total binge lately.

http://image1.altnet.com/images/61/6...lfTitled_3.jpg

jackhammer 12-31-2010 06:26 PM

Let's hope that people come back and actually review these albums they are sent.

NSW 12-31-2010 06:37 PM

This is an awesome idea Rezz! And thanks for the album. I have heard of it, but never listened to it, so I'm looking forward to it, and I'll most definitely come back here and let y'all know how it went.

All right pink freud, I want to send you something but you listen to everything. You like post-punk though, right? I have something that you might've never heard, but I'm not sure if it qualifies as the "kind of music you wouldn't listen to".

bob. 01-01-2011 03:03 PM

indeed

what do you suggest to someone with over 3000 unique bands on his last.fm page

for Jackhammer:

Thrash Til' Death: Compilation of Japanese Thrash
http://img13.imageshack.us/img13/573...shtildeath.jpg

i know you like the thrash metal....but i did not see any Japanese thrash in your charts.....this compilation highlights just four bands Lip Cream, Gauze, Outo, and Systematic Death all of whom have quite extensive catalogues....this compilation defiantly leans towards the punk side of thrash but i think you may still enjoy it

Paedantic Basterd 01-01-2011 03:27 PM

Bob, I will listen to your recommendation next, definitely. RVCA sent me this first and I ended up getting to it first, but you have not been ignored!

http://image1.altnet.com/images/61/6...lfTitled_3.jpg

I thought that this was a really good album. I'm a big fan of brooding albums, and this was beautiful. I imagine that if Wilco were to collaborate with the National, it would be something like this, haha. Blue Pail Fever was a stand out track, and the cover of Ain't No Sunshine was a powerful take. I'm a fan. Definitely going to explore this discography.

And now I pass on another rec, for Zero1986:

http://www.jonlim.ca/wp-content/uplo...ry-300x300.jpg

Holly Miranda - The Magician's Private Library

I know you enjoy quite a lot of dream pop, and this is a lovely album that takes a lot of cues and I think you'll enjoy.

Dr_Rez 01-01-2011 03:29 PM

@Ped: You think you could throw me that link as well? Looks interesting.

Done!

The Fascinating Turnip 01-01-2011 03:38 PM

Well here's what I sent jackhammer:

Portuguese post-punk, I've raved about the band in my thread. If anyone's interested just let me know.

Dr_Rez 01-01-2011 03:43 PM

haha my first thought was some weird Guns and Roses cover album. Wrong!

Paedantic Basterd 01-01-2011 04:17 PM

For Dayvan Cowboy

http://factmag-images.s3.amazonaws.c...ear0303033.jpg

The Knife in collaboration with Mt. Sims and Planningtorock - Tomorrow, In a Year

This is an ambient/electronica album written as the soundtrack to an opera based on Darwin's Origin of Species. I think you'll enjoy the obvious aspects to the album, but that the opera will be something different for you.

http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_uB-0D-gV8m...-_Duty_Now.jpg

Haha, I have always known Whip It, and as a result, never thought I would be listening to this band with the serious intent of enjoying them, until I came to this website and saw a number of people appreciating their work. I told myself to give them a shot, but hadn't had a starting point, so this was a welcome recommendation. Duty Now was surprising, but without dispelling the humour I expected from Whip It. This was a fun album with lots of gems (favourite being Strange Pursuit). This band is more to me than my high school teachers dressed up in blue wigs performing with whisks to Whip It at a pep rally now!

Good call! I would have picked that one for Dayvan too. I hope she likes it.

that sounds dreadful....no wonder you stayed away....Strange Pursuit is a great song...and yeah there are many sides to Devo's music....but all of them have a great quirky sense of humor which just makes them fun....glad you liked them

:) another spud to the pile

jackhammer 01-01-2011 05:42 PM

Well I certainly didn't expect anyone to send me anything so thanks for sending me stuff :)

Although I did think the idea was to send music outside of people's usual remit (not talking about what I was sent here BTW)?

OK. For Bob. we have quite similar tastes according to Last.FM but I don't see a huge amount of singer songwriters so you get this:

A singer songwriter with nods to avant garde, electronica, folk and post rock. Certainly unique.

For Unchained Ballad:

It's Spanish (sorry!) but it's a fantastic Post Hardcore album and one of my faves. Just hope you haven't heard it before.

More to come for other members.

bob. 01-01-2011 05:48 PM

sweet!

that cover alone is intriguing....

Paedantic Basterd 01-01-2011 06:17 PM

See, Jack, thing is, it's already difficult to recommend music that fits a person's taste, let alone recommend them something out of left field that they'll like, haha. I don't even know my best friends well enough to do that.

I figure that giving them something they don't listen to that you think they'll enjoy is already a great start, and once you find success there, you can continue to branch out?

Well I have to say that this thread is a really, really good idea and maybe the fact that our recommendations to people may be shot to bits because of the idea behind it will deter some but maybe a few posters will find music that they haven't considered before and enjoy it which is immensely satisfying.

Word of warning though. Anybody sending me a Green Day album will be on my shit list forever!

Aw cool beans dude, I'll be sure to check it out. But I gotta listen to Pedestrian's rec again and get a response up before I start on this one

Haha, I'm sure that we're all going to give and receive some bum recs, but I also don't think anybody will be too put off by them to quit the whole cycle. I'm loving this thread. I can't wait to hear from people.

Insane Guest 01-01-2011 10:11 PM

Anyone mind sending me something? Always looking for new bands/artists.

khfreek 01-01-2011 11:11 PM

xEMGx: I'll send you two albums cause I've just gleaned your taste from some of your posts and can't be sure in my recommendations.

Six by Mansun - An overlooked new prog album from 1998
http://www.chartstats.com/images/artwork/28723.jpg

S/t by Kvelertak - An interesting combination of black metal and hard rock.
http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:p...f8c25a.jpg&t=1

Now someone send me a thing or two!

bob. 01-01-2011 11:15 PM

nice....that Kvelertak is one of my favorite albums this year

xEMGx...

i was actually also in the process of uploading an album for you....but considering that two were just sent to you would you still like it?

Alfred 01-01-2011 11:16 PM

Yeah, that Kvelertak album is one of the best metal albums that came out in 2010.

Insane Guest 01-01-2011 11:17 PM

Thanks for the albums khfreek, I'll be listening to them tonight. : )
@ bob.
I have more than enough time... feel free to send it... I'll try and get something to you guys...

bob. 01-02-2011 12:19 AM

alright

xEMGx

Firewater - Get Off The Cross, We Need The Wood For Fire
http://rsindex.pictures-hosting.com/...13_medium.jpeg

so not knowing a whole lot about your taste...except you obviously like the Doors, and Jim Morrison in particular, and you love Pink Floyd....i send you Firewater's amazing debut album....it is full of retrospective poetic lyrics and has a wonderful twinge of psychedelic music....but at the same time homes onto a despondent and dirty outlook on both life and music.....there is still a hint of the Todd's first band which is guttural, noisy and mean as all hell....something i feel may be lacking in your taste....enjoy

and for khfreek

basically when you sent xEMGx the albums i figured he may say no to more and started looking at your charts....so for you i send one of the greatest albums of all time (in my mind)

UNSANE - Scattered, Smothered, and Covered
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51F91Q2ZHYL.jpg

so looking through your charts i see a lot of stuff i've never heard....but i started to notice one reoccurring thing....lots of pictures of tattooed guys screaming....and then i noticed that you've yet to really embrace "noise rock" and at that heavy as shit noise.....this is UNSANE...unrelenting, heavy, in your face and yet with a feeling of that guy who sits on top of NYC buildings with a loaded rifle.....and thats just the music!.....enjoy

Holly Miranda - The Magician's Private Library

I know you enjoy quite a lot of dream pop, and this is a lovely album that takes a lot of cues and I think you'll enjoy.

Thanks for this one i really enjoyed it. When i listened to the first track it sounded a little bit like Cocteau Twins gone twee, but as the next track came on the album turned into something a little bit different. One description that came into my head as i was listening to it is that she sounds a bit like Tegan and Sara lost in a dark forest with Beach House. It sounds a bit dark and twisted in places and has a nice dreamy feel to it. I'm very impressed by her vocals, they sound really gorgeous and captivating. Also looking at pictures of her, she is seriously gorgeous.

I sent this album to duga:

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_VgPmoZbECZ...153380965.jpeg
Adorable - Against Perfection (1993)

We both have a very similar taste in music and i've really been enjoying this album lately so i thought you might like it as well. This band were initially lumped in with shoegaze in the early 90's but they pretty much broke the mold with this album, their strong songwriting abilities and memorable tunes distanced themselves somewhat from their peers. Their record label Creation however didn't bother much with them and crippled the band's commercial potential.

"It's glorioooooooouuuus!"

Hehe, good recommendation, I agree that they had an immense commercial potential, some of the songs just stick with you. Glorious and Sunshine Smile come to mind really.

Edit: bob., could you send that firewater album my way? Thanks in advance.

bob. 01-02-2011 09:08 AM

The Mansun album was pretty cool, but it wasn't really anything that I liked or stood out.
However, Kvelertak kicked some serious ass. That's the fast paced punch you in the face metal that I expect from Norway. Although it is the only album in my library so far that is not in English, it is a great album and It really kicks off a career for these guys, I want to see what more they can do.

@bob. I will check it out, thanks for the Rec.
I will be looking at your charts to see if I can come up with something to send you.
