It's me!
 
Greetings!

My name is Gabriel - I'm a singer-songwriter (I'll post some of my music here, you better get excited)
I found out about this message board from a Todd in the Shadows video and finally decided to join. I've been a bit slow when it comes to discovering new music recently, so I figured maybe joining this forum might help expand my taste a little bit.

Recently I've been mostly into The Cure and artists like Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush.

Welcome!

What on earth is Todd in the Shadows and why would he mention MB in his video?

I can't post links yet, so here's the title of the youtube video:

Definitely was a Neapolitan post that sparked that video.

Also: welcome, guy. Who are some of your favourite Kate Bush-like artists?

Marie Monday 09-03-2021 03:16 AM

Hi dude, just note that promoting your own songs is not allowed until you're an established member of the forum, but I adore Kate Bush so I'm glad to have you here

Kate Bush is my favourite Kate Bush-like artist :D
That's a good question though. Which artists count as Kate Bush-like? Bjork? (but I don't really know a lot of her music, she seems experimental in a less pop-ish way). Maybe Tori Amos? (I've been very slowly discovering her music.)

Cheers! Favourite album? And why is it The Dreaming?

Tori Amos is probably closer to Kate Bush than Bjork. Bush's sound seems to be rather unique to me though. Anyway, welcome, GG. I see you have a Peter Gabriel
avatar, is it safe to say you like him too?

Rad.

Fwiw Kate Bush seems to be the internet's favourite comparison for any female art pop artist. Julia Holter would be mine.

Ja, seems like I have now become part of the Music Banter vernacular. I take it was not necessarily a post I've written but a post that emphatically stated an opinion -- "a Neapolitan post."

:laughing: actually it's The Kick Inside, but The Dreaming is a close second.

As for my favourite Kate Bush like artist, that would be Jun Togawa. She's punkier than Kate Bush, but has the same wonderfully weird vibe

Yeah. I remember listening to So a few years back and liking it, but it was only a couple of years ago when I started listening more intensely to his music (it was "Games Without Frontiers" that got things rolling).

Yo, I love Todd's videos, don't remember ever noticing MB in his videos but lo and behold, there it is. Here's the link for those who are lazy - can anyone source the original thread that he's referring to in the video?


elphenor 09-05-2021 08:49 PM

which poster do you reckon is Todd himself

SGR 09-05-2021 08:53 PM

Norg has my suspicions

So unassuming - or at least, that's what he wants you to think...

adidasss 09-06-2021 08:23 AM

Maybe he just used MB as a visual reference of an old school forum. If you go and search mentions of the Spin doctors, nothing comes up that resembles the discussion he mentions in the video.

If you love The Dreaming there's no reason you wouldn't love Bjork. I would start at the beginning - Debut (1993). I love many Bjork albums but that remains the one.

The Kick Inside
I read the overall glowing Pitchfork review (by a British writer) the other day, to be reminded why I despise British music journalists. They have some inner compulsion to be patronizing to real artists while worshipping tedious posers, aka the NME mindset. This is what it has to say about one of the most perfect pop songs ever recorded:

Quote:

The louche “L’Amour Looks Something Like You” treads similarly brazen territory though lands less soundly. She fantasizes about “that feeling of sticky love inside” as if anticipating a treacle pudding, and there is an unctuous gloop to the arrangement that makes it one of the album’s least distinctive songs.
"Somebody's pulling me out on the streets and you're louche"

Nobody gets to disrespect The Kick Inside like that :mad:

Which is third (I assume it's between Never Forever and Hounds of Love)?

Marie Monday 09-10-2021 10:44 AM

I've never had a third favourite because I always liked The Kick Inside and The Dreaming so much more than the other ones, and I haven't listened to the rest in ages. Time to do so again and see

jadis 09-10-2021 11:20 AM

I love those two. Hounds of Love's reputation as one of the great 80s albums is absolutely justified imo and Never For Ever is a really strong album too. I always skip Babooshka cause it's annoying but lots of great music there.

Though tbh I haven't listened to anything KB that isn't The Dreaming in ages

Marie Monday 09-10-2021 03:01 PM

yeah I think I like Hounds of Love most, but I like both more than I used to (and Babooshka is great, what are you on about). I like Lionheart too.

Hello Marie............ life sweet or sour?
