Pink Guy - Pink Guy
YouTube link.

Our Filthiest friend's youngest son, Pink Guy, decided to explore his talents by compiling an album of all of his brothers' works. The album was mostly written and performed by Pink Guy himself, although it does feature tracks from several others, including Salamander Man and Santa's Brother.

The largest pleasure can be taken from this album by appreciating its diversity. With smooth, feelgood jams like Anal Beads, songs highlighting everyday struggles like Erectile Dysfunction, and even serious social commentary songs like It's Okay to Eat Whale, there really is something for everyone on this album. It is best to approach the album with a sense of humor, though, as some of the songs are a little lighthearted, and perhaps even innocent, when talking about these issues.

Admittedly, the sound quality of these files is not great but it's what I have for this obscure album. It's located in my personal Stash on the ftp.

Anderson .Paak - Malibu
Spoiler: show

Brandon Paak Anderson (goes by Anderson Paak, usually stylized with a period before the second name) is a pretty new musician (debut album was 2012) which I discovered through NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series, where they have artists cram into their studio and perform. You can find them all on their YouTube channel. It's also an amazing way to find new artists. It's now I found St. Paul and the Broken Bones. A few others I would quickly recommend are Tank And The Bangas and Moon Hooch, but pretty much all of the performances I've watched are great, including from the larger artists like T-Pain (totally serious), Adele, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

As far as the album goes, where to start? There are no bad songs. There aren't even okay songs. There are only good songs, a few of which are amazing. My favorites have to be Heart Don't Stand a Chance, Come Down, Light Weight, and Room in Here. Seriously, though, they're all at least good.

I've been on a prog metal kick lately, listening to bands like Riverside, Caligula's Horse, and Haken. I've listened to and enjoyed Haken in the past with their album "The Mountain", but they've recently come out with two albums, "Vector" in 2018 and "Virus" this year. Vector is great. I had it on repeat for a while there. Then recently, Virus came out and it was excellent. Even better, it was more like a continuation of Vector, much like how System of a Down's Hypnotize and Mesmerize were companion albums.

Haken is telling a story across all their albums about the Cockroach King. Clean vocals throughout make it easy to follow along. The arrangement is great. It's basically metal opera.

For continuity's sake I'll link both albums, but I personally like the second album a bit more. They're both excellent, but the second one is more metal than orchestral, if that makes sense. There are times that I hear a sound like Tool/A Perfect Circle. Plus, hearing themes from the first album on "Messiah Complex I-V" is like seeing a Stan Lee cameo in a Marvel Movie. It's just great. But you can't appreciate that part without listening to the first album beforehand. So hear you go:

There's no full album video for either album on youtube and playlists won't work on here, so here's a link to the playlist on youtube for Vector: ... BU&index=1
And here's a song I like off of it:

And here's a link to Virus: ... l4e5hlC53w
And a song I like off of it:
*I'd love to link Messiah Complex I-V, but I don't want to spoil what I think makes them great before you give the first album a listen

(Turns out the video's great, too)

I definitely like it. I enjoyed the Invasion music video. It feels like something is a little off about his vocals, maybe I expect more energy out of metal vocals, but it's certainly nothing bad. I find myself jamming out pretty hard to portions of each song, but I'm not always sucked all the way in all the time. I poked around their music some and I really like that they have a song called Cockroach King. It makes me think of Kyouhukou from Overlord, who is a giant cockroach with a crown who tortures people by having them be eaten alive by a legion of roaches.

I might revisit them again and give them another listen when I'm in a better mood.

AND SPEAKING OF OVERLORD, I'm doing an anime album because FUCK YOU. However, this is also a bit of a unique case. Carole and Tuesday is an anime about two young girls (who live on Mars in a scifi future, but that isn't terribly important) who become friends and set out to become famous musicians together. Through happenstance, they get discovered by a washed up agent who has them compete in an American Idol-style competition. The rest is history.

Spotify playlist here.

There's a lot to say about these albums. They're certainly not what you'd expect if you expect, well, Japanese music. The concept of this anime is an American Idol ripoff, remember, and they devoted every single bit of production that they could to that premise to the utmost. Of course, most importantly, this includes the music. The music produced for this anime varies widely in style and genre, fitting the idea of a diverse cast of competitors in this competition, and almost completely written and performed by English-speaking artists in English. I'll link some of the examples below, as their scenes from the show. This premise is made possible and fully realized by having some incredible talent lend their voices to the songs.

Carole and Tuesday - "Someday I'll Find My Way Home"

Angela - "Light a Fire"

Beyonce, I mean Crystal - "Unbreakable"

Skip - "Unrequited Love"

Pyoyr - "Dance Tonight"

GGK - "Gravity Bounce"

Cybelle - "La Ballade"

And last but certainly not least, Mermaid Sisters - "Galactic Mermaid"
