Fang Talks

what's good in the %hood?

Sorry folks, no W3 this week. I was planning on a collaborative post with Mark (He awarded me an award by the way. Huzzah!), but we didn’t quite finish in time. Do look forward to it next week, though!

This leaves me with some time to do the long-awaited album recommendation.
I’ve been listening to a lot of albums from this soundtrack group, and it’s been a terribly hard choice picking just one to recommend, but here we go.

The Felt is a spinoff album from the Homestuck soundtracks. (Homestuck is an incredibly awesome webcomic, do check it out.) Spinoffs usually aren’t that great, but as with most of the albums made by the Homestuck music artists, they’re fucking fabulous.

At first glance it seems like a bit of a jazzy album, more slow-paced songs, that kind of stuff. Listening to the first song, you’ll start thinking it’s really quite experimental. It sort of it.
Most songs are what you expect them not to be: upbeat, fast-paced, do-a-crazy-dance-able music.

English is one of my favorites from the album. it starts out as a very boring piano solo, but after a minute or so it gets really interesting. it stays more classical than most songs from the album, but I personally kind of like that.

Chartreuse Rewind is a very light song. High tones and all, and the sound feels rather light, unlike most music. (That’s a bit of synesthesia from my part.) It gets heavier as the song progresses, with a really cool guitar added in later on.

The Broken Clock is another masterpiece. I like classical songs like these. Upbeat, sinister, and yet quite uplifting. I personally find the ticks and tocks really addictive, so to say.

Variations is better off in the techno genre, or right next to it. It starts a slow techno, but quickly speeds up, stops for a few seconds, proceeds with a pretty base, and builds up from there.

But I really should stop this before I talk about every song in the album.

    If you think it sounds cool now, try reversing the tracks (expecially English).

    It is indeed an incredibly awesome webcomic, and I just I can’t even

    People who try to spread it hit the top of my internal ranking list. It’s a noble cause.

    Nothing wrong with listing your opinions on every song. That’s what people do when they like something.

    I don’t get all the Homestuck love

    Nice, I’ll have to give this a listen. I’m always down for new tunes!

    So much new music today, I guess I’ll add this to my list.

    I came to check out your blog because Mark put you on his list!

    Hey, another homestuck fan! excellent taste :)

    This album sounds interesting, I’ll definitely check it out. I like how concisely you wrote the descriptions of the songs too. Looking forward to your next post!

    Hehe we do need to work on that post. I was at work today but don’t plan going again for a bit, but you have school I believe, so that could hamper us a bit. At the very least we have the weekend to play about with. I’ll be sure to check out this album. It’s good to not go into every song on a soundtrack lol, one of my favourite soundtracks has 22 songs on it. Only two of those are start and end themes too.
