Planning Thread: The Ultimate-Guitar.com Post-Rock Album II

Yaay!

Our first album was brilliant, if I may say so. I should've probably done this a while ago, but I'll spread it on Last.FM and send it to websites like TheSirensSound and TheSilentBallet, so that they can offer it for download to unsuspecting prey. That way, the first album can also serve as a teaser of sorts for our second album, which is this one!

As determined in the dream pop/shoegaze album planning thread, we are combining that album with this one, so it'll be like Optimus Prime combining with a couple of Minicons.

The guidelines are the same as the first album.

New contributors, here's the release thread and the planning thread of the first album. Check them both out so that you can see how it goes down.

Alumni, you know what to do.



Basic shtuffs:

* MP3 @ 320 kbps with ID3 tags - Artist + Title [Artist name should not your username]
* Tentative deadline - The ides of March [not fixed]
* Post-rock, post-metal, dream pop, shoegaze, blackgaze [black metal + shoegaze/post-rock], atmospheric music
* No solos!
* Lawljoke



If you have any questions, post them in the thread.

Ah, so many.

Explosions In The Sky, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, Slint, God Is An Astronaut, Do Make Say Think, This Will Destroy You, 65daysofstatic, Sigur Rs, Bark Psychosis, Envy, Red Sparowes, Maybeshewill, Isis, Pelican, and Mono are the names that come to mind when asked on the spot.

Contrary to what people may think, post-rock is a pretty wide genre. Listen to at least one song from all the artists I mentioned. You'll notice that the genre is a vast cornucopia of styles.

I don't think Bandcamp supports compilations, so nah.

Might it be wise to decide upon a theme for the songs to reflect? That way we have a sort of story behind it, helps with composition etc.

Nah, no need for that.

The brahs from the first album recorded whatever they wanted, and the entire album came together as a concept album of sorts automagically. It was freakishly brilliant. Even now, when I listen to the album [and I listen to it at least thrice a week, lawl], I still feel it is one of the best albums I've ever listened to.

Awesome. Ok, well, I'll have a fiddle around, see what I can come up with. I had something for the experimental album, but I never recorded it, so I might rework it for this

I just came into to say three things

First: The first album was awesome and I can't wait for this one to come out

Second: I'm gonna have to update my albums thread to add this to the list, dang you making me do work also, if anyone has missed the other UG albums (And trust me there's a few) you can find a catalogue of them in the link in my sig

Okay and with that side note promotion out of the way

Thirdly: Hriday, I love your location

Fourthly: What I can have more than I said I did, this is post commenting <_< But I wish I could contribute to this, sadly I wouldn't know the first thing about, nor have the talent for, writing post rock, but I wish you all the best and cannot wait for the end result

First: Thank you muchly, TGA. ^_^

Second: You can remove the dream pop/shoegaze album from your list, brah. We are integrating that into this album.

Third: It's a brilliant song, eh?

Fourth: Now, we simply can't have that. You must at least try. Writing post-rock is truckloads of fun.

Whaddya mean, "proper"?

"The Ultimate-Guitar.com Post-Rock Album" is kinda like a brand name at this point. This is a series of albums. Like I've said before, UG will have post-rock albums as long as I'm alive.

After I have all the submissions, we can decide a subtitle. So, it'll be something like "The Ultimate-Guitar.com Post-Rock Album II: Something Pretentious".

I think my contribution may turn out more atmospheric progressive than post-rock, but we'll see.

I also like the song Arriving Somewhere but not Here, in fact it's my favourite Porcupine Tree song. Just sayin'

Awesome, I'll get the boys together and we'll rerecord Fado (from the shoegaze album) and start working on getting our newest song recorded for this. I promise our songs this time will be a lot deeper than Swaylone's Island from last time, haha.

If I can get a means of recording, I shall contribute.

Although since this is a combo of the second post-rock album and the shoegaze one, it'll probably be shoegaze.

Mine too, along with Anesthetize.



Also, if anyone wants to attempt some blackwave [black metal + post-rock; think Alcest and/or Les Discrets], feel free.

I'd be down for a three-way collab witchyou guys. Some of the recent musical ideas I've had could be called post-metal.

I'd call Alcest blackgaze, because I think it sounds better.

And because I don't even see where the "wave" comes from in here. Darkwave and coldwave are called such because of New Wave.
