You know, I never thought of that song as "funky" but it does have a bit of funk influence to it (though a bit more blues influence than funk)

I understand now that boundaries between noise and sound are conventions. All boundaries are conventions, waiting to be transcended. One may transcend any convention if only one can first conceive of doing so.

Nice! Something about this makes me want to play Transport Tycoon again, even though it's not quite the same style as that game's soundtrack

Also, is "Congress" a pun on Parliament?

Speaking of which





... which of course brings us to Funkadelic





You know that stage when you're in a new group of people where you're between being acquaintances and becoming actual friends? Well, about fifteen years ago, in my first year of art school one of my classmates invited the whole class to her apartment during that phase. She turned out to be a stoner (by Dutch standards, so think chain smoker of weed) who decided that the seventies are her decade, despite being born at the end of it. But in her defense she seems to be pretty authentic (whatever "authentic" is). Her place was a glorious thing of no-budget salvaged and restored seventies design. A real labour of love. Tons of wavy shapes, orange circles (why was that thing, by the way?), furniture with those rounded shapes. Permanent weed smell infused into the wallpaper of course. Like, I wasn't around back then but I still felt like I stepped through a time portal entering her apartment.

So I get to meet her boyfriend, super chill guy, and we immediately got along really well. After a couple of minutes of chatting about life and whatever he's suddenly like "dude... I really, really want you to listen to this record." Sure you do buddy, and I'm really, really resistant to that idea, because 99% of the time when people introduce me to their music I'm just sitting there awkwardly, not getting "it". Not the kind awkwardness I need when first meeting someone. Also, back then I was basically a straight edger (and, apparently, a bit of a dick at times), so as the only sober person at the party I'm quietly thinking to myself that whatever he's thinking of, I won't be stoned enough to appreciate it.

But he insists and after a while I relent. He searches through the huge shelf full of vinyls and pulls out... Maggot Brain. Half doubtful, half curious I watch him carefully put the needle on the slightly warped record, and the two of us sit down on the ground huddling around one speaker in the corner. Now, I'm sure the whole setting I just described is half of the reason for the following experience, but despite my soberness and skepticism I felt transported to another world as soon as I heard Eddie Hazel's mournful guitar. We just quietly listen to opening song together, and at the end I give him one look and he nods like "I know, right?"

Then we listen to the rest of the record, and that was actually my first proper introduction to funk

Lol I was listening to maggot brain before reading your story and thought "Dang this is some stoner music" :p it's good of course don't get me wrong- I do enjoy this type of funky stuff as well. I actually had a similar experience with some coworkers who were quite... interesting, they were a couple and were like "hey come over to our apartment" so I did and of course they had me listen to Pink Floyd (which I already enjoyed at the time) but also introduced me to King Crimson and some other stoner rock music. Though, they weren't smoking weed at that moment they were indeed weed people.

They were really new-agey back then and kind of bought into the 2012 thing and they were pretty neat back then. I saw them couple years ago and hung out with them but like they kind of became sort of Trump people and like idk I'm not a politic-y person but I'm not a Trump fan and that's what they were talking about a lot then.

Anyway, that was a nice story :3

I do like psychedelic or whatever kind of sound that you can think of as like "vintage" stonery stuff but never got too into it.

I will to the other stuff as well everyone who posted recs~

Sounds like a cool way to be introduced to those albums too! Smiley

I personally really love "Good To Your Earhole", for some reason. Most of my friends complain it's too "busy" for them to handle but that's exactly what I love about it.





Don't think that's stoner music any more though, the band clearly moved on to different drugs at that point Wink

Whoops! Posted w/o actually saying anything! That was really pretty and I'll be listening to more breakbot for sure.

I haven't listened to a lot of funk lately, just a lot of Rush (the rock band, of course!) and some ambient stuff here and there. But I think it's time to get back to listening to funk  Well, hello there!
