Streaming some old radio dramas. There are a ton of these on archive.org; to narrow down the mountain of choices, I decided to take a cue from recent posts and go with two which were adapted from Philip K Dick stories. The series is X Minus 1, and each episode has runtime of 30 minutes.

Looks like this weeks winner is "Kraftwerk - Die Mensch-Maschine", in the poll it has been replaced by "Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells".

Another notable example of this eccentric behavior was reported to Johnny Marr of the Smiths by Karl Bartos, who explained that anyone trying to contact the band for collaboration would be told the studio telephone did not have a ringer, since while recording, the band did not like to hear any kind of noise pollution. Instead, callers were instructed to phone the studio precisely at a certain time, whereupon the phone would be answered by Ralf Hütter, despite never hearing the phone ring

>Slade cover
How does Ernst like Slade? For me what I said earlier about my subjective perception of the Clash also applies to Slade. It's a complete miracle for me why this band has been so successful. Zero depth, catchy, albeit boring, music, lots of ridiculous dresses and unfunny intentional misspelled song titles as a lame gimmick. They seem like a shitty version of The Sweet, and i couldn't believe it when I saw how insanely popular they were back then.

Fun fact: I just read about Slade in order to gain some information for my once again obviously unsophisticated musical taste, and I read that even Noddy Holder, the long time lead singer of Slade, said that the band didn't like many of their own songs, because they thought they were too stupid. Maybe they were pushed in that fun rock/gimmick direction by their management.

This is totally unrelated to the thread but is it just me or are more and more animals learning to walk or stand upright? Kangaroos, raccoons, gorillas, bears, kangaroo rats, I just keep getting this weird sense when I see a lot of animals now that it's almost like theyve been trying to mimic us for quite awhile. Or is it simply that much of an advantageous trait to position yourself upright that this is a feature of convergent evolution?

I checked the theme and oh my I always knew those horror/giallo soundtracks are a goldmine for (hiphop) sampling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBinhsGcEfs

Apparently the composer of Suspiria also wrote Tenebre. I remember Legowelt talking about the dissonant horror/grindhouse soundtracks of the 70s and 80s. Makes me think back of the days I went to watch giallo/exploitation/budget, story centered oddball movies with a girl I was unlucky in love with in some obscure cinema once a month or so.

It got replaced in the poll by "Nas - Illmatic".

Get ready for some of the best 90s gangster rap has to offer.
We start at 18:00 CET which is in 1 hour from now.

Here's next weeks poll:
https://poll.fm/10483622

I also want to promote the email address i made so you can send me suggestions for Albums to put in the poll

weeklyalbumstream@gmx.de

Criteria for an album to be considered:

1. We only play albums that can be considered classics, a classic is an album that is:
Judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality and outstanding of its kind.
A thing which is memorable and a very good example of its kind.

Or in short: It has to maintain relevance even after a longer period of time, how long that is depends on the genre but i would say after 2005 doesn't work in most cases, there are albums like "Kendrick Lamar - Damn" that have pretty much all a classic needs but it's just to new.

2. It should be known outside of your own country/language area.

3. I have to like it.

International music from outside the anglosphere is highly wanted.

Also, thanks to the 2 people who already gave me some input, i didn't respond but i saw it and some of the albums will definetly make it into the poll sooner or later.

... a new weekly show where we play a whole album and you can vote for it.

There are tons of albums i would love to play but they just don't fit in the Weekly Album Stream poll so i just make a new one.
It will contain obscure albums i picked up on flee markets or ebay only based on the cover artwork, albums by well known artists that never made it to a real classic or are just to new and everything else that doesn't really fit into the other stream.

To open ourself to new audiences this stream will take place (almost every) sunday at 12pm CET.

We start the poll wih 4 albums to pick from and for every album that is taken out we add 2 back until we're at 10. As soon as we have 10 albums in the poll it is 1 for 1 like in the other stream.

Here's the poll for next week

>Impressions?
The emotion behind the album struck a chord with me, but it's difficult to pin down. There is a sadness running through both the music and lyrics, but not one which is depressing. As you mentioned, there is too much energy to be described that way. I'd define the feeling as more of a lament, or a longing. I've played it through a few times, and that's the sense which keeps returning.
>>
No. 36210
>>36195
Indeed, there is a profound sense of longing on that album, especially in tracks like both versions of "In Motion" and "Sand and Mercury". There's also childlike wonderment in the opening "Strange Machines" or "Fear the Sea". The lyrics are sombre and melancholic, but not full of crippling existential anguish that you'd find on the archetypical Gothic album. Keep in mind lyrics that go that way aren't necessarily dealbreakers for me, although they can be overbearing at times. Mandylion is much more tempered in its sadness.

Still, I'm not sure it's truly a "Gothic" album in terms of its sound despite the Ethereal Wave influences. It owes plenty to '90s Prog Rock and it certainly isn't Doom Metal despite what insolent music journalists may tell you. If you like Mandylion, you might also enjoy the follow up Nighttime Birds, although it is a step backwards.

And yes, this is who you think it is.

I started actively expanding my musical tastes around the year 2009, so a lot of my favorite albums are from the 2000s. A lot of smaller genres are born or re-born, have their golden age, and then become stale in the span of about a decade. So if you have your hand on the pulse of a subculture at the right time, you can witness the birth and death of a small "era" as it's happening.

I'm not at all familiar with more recent stuff, though, as I feel like my tastes have ossified by now. i rarely seek out new and unfamiliar stuff these days, mostly sticking to what I know. Maybe what they say is right, about music taste developing in your early 20s and then staying the same til you die.

I don't know, but I never felt in touch with "today's" music even as a kid. In fact, the last celebrity musician I truly invested myself in personally was Eminem, and that was when I was between 12-14. I partially attribute my lack of connection with popular with the demographics they're marketed to, which is normally tween and teen girls. At the risk of sounding deeply misogynistic, I don't care for female singers. I have my exceptions, but the subjects women normally sing about do not move me in the least.

In terms of our tastes ossifying as we age, I elaborated a little bit here:
>>27840

Nostalgia is a strong sentiment with most of us, so we get used to music being a certain way, and when it changes, it's deeply upsetting. The human ear develops differently depending on what it is exposed to. Music of two thousand years ago sounds terribly dissonant and strange to us, and ours likely would to them.

Kazakhstan had an interesting point about the rise and fall of certain genres. If people continued to create music within the same structure and instrumentation, how far do you think it could really stretch? A genre is merely an idiom that will eventually be exhausted no matter how many new trends arise.

I've always been puzzled with the tendency to conflate "contemporary music" and "contemporary mainstream pop music". There's plenty of interesting stuff happening in various smaller subcultures and genres all the time.

Metal, for example, had a really good run in the 00s with revivals and reimaginings of older subgenres, as well as new subgenres being invented. The same is probably true for many other less than mainstream forms of music.

Thanks. I guess subtlety is becoming my specialty :D.

On the topic of tonights show: In a future where death can be prevented, I think the technology would ultimately need to spread beyond the wealthy. Any contemporary movement against the weathly/inequality is likely to fail because social safety nets which keep most people fed and housed(even if it's the bare minimum). The results would be different if there was widespead famine in the 1st world while the leaders dined in comfort. So while most of spoils go to the top, enough is spread over the population to keep the world stable. In the same way, any true life extending technology would be distributed- not out of kindness, but as a means for the wealthy to prevent an uprising.

I have read that story, it's good.

What I have to say about "eternal life/existence" is that I think that the extent of human experience isn't limited by time, but by context. This sense of "authentic living" where you're going through a truly meaningful and profound experience are quite rare, and I think there might be a limit to such circumstances that is much smaller than the limit of available time (simply because something that depends on a circumstance within a time frame must necessarily be smaller than the set of that available time frame). And it is often the case that people live out their meaningful experiences before the end of their short lifespans. So, having more time would not necessarily mean that you will be spending that time meaningfully. There might be a possibility that the potentiality of human experience is exhausted at some point.

I'd draw a dumb analogy to music and art. Usually, a band will have one or two important albums in their discography, the thing that really conveys their vision. The rest of the material being unimportant. Or an artist will create a few masterpieces, but the majority of their work will be done in search of that masterpiece. So what's really important is exhaust one's potentiality within a lifespan. After that, a physical death is just a formality. The real death has already occured. But that is the kind of death that gives finality, rather than being a cessation. A death which in itself has meaning. I think such a death is even good, in the ultimate sense. Something that persists and shambles on beyond its capacity to produce beauty is not only beauty-less, it is ugly in itself.

Glad you could make it, sorry that the timeslot was so bad for you, I'll see that future streams will be on afternoon or early evening, so that everyone can listen. Also: If you manage to make it through Gamma Ray, your post will be discussed, I think there is lots of truth in it, but I also think that existence is a goal in itself, and it doesn't necessarily be meaningful. The wish for a meaningful existence arises when the wish for existence itself is fulfilled.

Hello Ernst, i could use your help.
I already streamed 2 or 3 albums from vinyl and no one complained, but i still try to avoid it because i have no idea how the sound on the other end is with my weird record player to laptop to computer setup i came up with.

Is there an Ernst who would listen to me streaming a song from vinyl, then ending the stream and switching the setup just to stream the same song again as .mp3 file from my computer 5min later?

Here you go. I did both records with the same settings, there was no normalizing applied, at least none I know of, so they should be comparable. Export format is mp3 with 192kbps. Btw there is a 2-second-gap in the second stream, don't know where that came from. Suddenly the music went silent, and then it was back. Maybe just a stream hiccup, but I think I never noticed something like that in the album streams before.

Thanks for recording.
I guess expect for a bit of background static (which can't be avoided with vinyl) it doesn't sound much worse and i can keep streaming from my record player.
The little break might be because i forgot end all downloads and so most of my bandwith was gone.

Now there's some more stuff.
I mainly made it because i still wait for a radio ernstiwan chat but i lost all hopes so here you go. I used a pre-build chat app but it should work. I just need to test it in practice before i can tell for sure so do your worst.

If there are bigger problems i might spend some extra time and try to come up with something myself but i'm not really a pro programmer so it would probably be even worse.

Streaming some random stuff for about 45 minutes. The playlist should end at about 16:40(UTC), so it won't interfere with the Weekly Album Stream.
I had to tinker with my sound settings, because some update messed everything up and it was too quiet. Turns out there is a new HP audio panel now, or at least I didn't notice it before.

It seems like we start our first Sunday Album Stream with "Butthole Surfers - Electriclarryland".
Great band, great album.

I replaced it in the poll with "The Mars Volta - Octahedron". The Mars Volta found many fans back when i made my Prog Rock marathon, so i assume it will do good in the poll.
I also added "Supertramp - Crisis? What Crisis?" and "Portishead - Third"

We start at 12:00CET which is in around 45min from now.

Today I will stream two of the more abrasive albums by Ween.
The first one is Z-Rock hawaii, a project they did with the japanese band The Boredoms. It consists of mostly standard Ween material, except now there's a japanese dude screaming his lungs out in the background.

The Pod is their second album, and is... hard to listen to according to some people.

Stream will start at 18:00 UTC, which is half an hour from now.

I will replace the emojis in the chat with more fitting ones.
Sadly, the whole process requires more work than it should, if you feel like helping me out, here are some things you could do:

  1. Take a picture worth a emoji
  2. Cut out all the not needed parts (like the background or the body if only the face is needed), resize the file to 32x32 and save as or later convert to .svg.
I will then convert it into base64 and put it into a .css and a .php file

Todays winner is "The Mars Volta - Octahedron". Great album.
I replaced it with "Barrington Levy - Barrington", not really comparable to most earlyer Barrington Levy albums but still a great piece of Dancehall.

I also kicket out "The Psycho Realm - The Psycho Realm" (going to stream this one at a random point in time. Maybe even later today), in exchange you can now vote for "Beastie Boys - Check Your Head"

This weeks winner is "Faith No More - Angel Dust".
Did you know that Mike Patton, the singer of Faith No More, has the widest vocal range in popular music? Now you do.

Because i get the feeling that 10 albums are just too much i will reduce the total number to somewhere between 7 and 5 which means i kick out both albums that got 0 votes and only add 1 which brings us down to 8 for now.

The Album to replace "Angel Dust" will be "Nirvana - Nevermind"
We had it in the poll a while ago but i took it out because people seemed to not like it much. I don't know why, it's a great piece of music.

Therion are a symphonic metal band from sweden, which started out as an edgy dark metal band in the early 90s, but became more sophisticated later, and they experimented a lot with different styles, so no 2 albums sound the same. They are one of my favourite bands, so pls no bully!

Glad you like it. The have a wide variety of sounds, their newer works tend to be more mellow than their older stuff, and even I don't like their very new stuff (everything since 2010 or so), I think Sitra Ahra was the first album by them since their very first teenage dark metal days I didn't really enjoy.

>The radio's front page integration isn't working for some reason
Yeah, we had a short downtime of the radio server earlier that afternoon, and it seems that an unresponsive radio status page significantly slows down EC, because it waits for a response form the radio server until it renders the page. I think Ernstadmin took the integration offline as long as that is an issue, I already notified them on /meta/ about this problem.

I also think that wa the first ever downtime I noticed, our provider is really doing a good job!

There is a lot to say about this band, but i won't. Instead i quote an article about the album we're about to hear that i like a lot and then give you the source so you can read if interested.

"This is a bizarre album from a bizarre period in a bizarre discography from a bizarre band, and from the periphery looking in, I think that makes it all the more fascinating.

If you understand the saga of Buzz Osbourne and Dale Crover’s merry band of weirdos in even the vaguest sense, you’ll know that, in the simplest possible terms, they’re the type of band that marches to the beat of some invisible drum from the fifth dimension. The group is named after an asshole that Buzzo used to work with. They were high school BFFs with Kurt Cobain. They sort of accidentally invented sludge metal by playing hardcore punk extremely slowly. Shirley Temple’s daughter played bass for a few years. They managed to write sub-three-minute drone songs. For about a decade, they had two drummers who would line their kits up side by side and share the floor toms. Their lyrics are uniformly just random words in no real order with no real meaning. They have a total of 173 official releases, according to the Metal Archives (making them the 13th most prolific metal band of all time). They’re a weird band is what I’m saying."

Which sound more interesting to you guys?

No. 40767
>>40765
Yeah, I was thinking like 17:00 UTC, which is around the time I used to stream.
If it makes the decision any easier, the prog-stoner-doom stuff is a bit of a more atmospheric, cosmic experience, while the heavy metal is good old fast, energetic fun with solos and powerful vocals, and also a bit of cheesiness.
I'd post the album covers to give a better idea, but I don't want to spoil it, and there's also the unfortunate fact that traditional pulpy fantasy art is way past the glory days of the 80s, so seeing the art might bias some people towards the prog metal stuff, lol.

Thanks for streaming. The connection issues weren't a huge bother, and now that you mention the quarantine, it makes more sense. We're all online at the same time, now.
I enjoyed both albums, but would rate Traveller a little higher, mainly for the incredible guitar playing. I couldn't help but notice the Visigoth lyrics were very thematic-revolving around ancient battles and such. From that album, I'd put Blood Sacrifice as my favorite track.
>>
No. 40781
>>40780
Yeah, I have a soft spot for thematic albums, and also prefer it when albums have a good low end and bass to them, especially in metal. And it's frustrating when a metal album sounds thin or harsh, which is common in a lot of heavy/speed/thrash, etc. That's why I like these two albums, they got proper bass. I feel like Traveller is overall more consistent, but a bit uniform while visigoth has some highlights, but also some weaker tracks. I also like the cheesiness factor, like having a song literally about playing DnD :-D

I'll probably stream the aforementioned prog-stoner-ish stuff a few days later, if you're interested.
Maybe some shoegaze? Since I've been interested in that lately.
>>
No. 40782
>>40781
Definitely interested in hearing the stoner/prog stuff, too. We've heard a lot great proggressive music on the weekly streams, and so I'm immediately curious when I see those four letters. I'm not as familiar with shoegaze, but I've recently been diving into synthpop, so I'd be open to that, too. I also saw another ernst just posted some really good Spanish synthpop in the music thread.
>>
No. 40783
>>40782
Shoegaze has a sort of effects heavy, wall of sound aesthetic, with whispering vocals. I'm up for anything with heavy effects use, but I'm not sure I'm on board with the ethos of the genre. It's basically about being a depressed teenager in 90s suburban America. And I mean in a completely un-ironic, sincere way, not in a cynical and jaded way like grunge is.
I can definitely relate more to being a jaded loser than a comparatively well adjusted teenager going through growing pains. But eh, I heard a lot of it is pretty good, and a good moan in music form can be cathartic when you're feeling down.
I'm not well versed in the genre, so I'll spend some time curating stuff that's good to stream.

Todays winner is "Nirvana - Nevermind".
Few albums had such an impact in the 1990s. The incredible success this album had helped to destroy the careers of dozens of 80s hair metal, glam rock and pop punk bands and allowed bands like Melvins, Butthole Surfers and early to mid 90s Punk Bands like Bad Religion and The Offspring some mainstream success.
Love the album or pretend you don't, you can't deny how huge it was and still is.

The album is one of the best rated albums in the Prog-Rock genre, yet it had very little commercial success.
A reason might be that the band was pretty much a cigarette commercial which even forced them to change their album cover in the USA to one of the most ugly ones i ever saw.

SLIFT - UMMON
Elder - Lore
Both albums are pretty long, full stream is probably going to be close to two hours, so I have to pick a convenient time. It may even be today at 18 UTC, which is pretty late for me, but my internet connection won't be (as) shitty at that time. If that's okay, I'll go ahead, if not, post and I'll move the date.

Well, I underestimated how tired I am, and a 2h long stream at midnight is a bit much for me right now, so it was partially an excuse to postpone for personal reasons.
I don't think I'd enjoy the music if I was forcing myself awake during it.

Sorry for the inconvenience. And yeah, it'd be good if more people get interested. I might actually define a fixed day/time and just stream once a week instead of doing it impromptu like now. Might give people some time to actually react and plan for participation. but I get a bit excited over sharing new cool music sometimes.

Hi guys, radioadmin here. Kosmonauten asked me recently if there was a possibility to gather statistics from the radio streams, and I said no. Turns out that was a lie. This week i created a script which uses the same json data which Icecast provides and Ernstadmin uses for frontpage integration to gather some data about ongoing streams, and it works like this: there's a cronjob which every 5 minutes polls the current json data from Icecast, and afterwards calls a PHP script to process the data. The script checks if at least one stream is active. If not, it does nothing. If yes, roughly the following is happening:

- if the streamer doesn't exist (has never been seen by the script before), he will be created in the stats database
- if there is no active stream present for the streamer, the stream will be created in the database with the information: streamer, starting time, end time (the current time), stream name, stream description, max listeners
- if there is an active stream for this streamer (an entry for this streamer in the database not older than 15 minutes and with the same stream name), then this entry will be updated with the new end time and - if larger than before - the new max listeners-value.

The data is stored in a local SQLite-DB. In addition, there is a view which shows all the stats I already have collected: http://radio.ernstchan.xyz/statview.php

This page is provided by a local Apache server and not via Icecast, that's why it's port 80 and not 8000. I'll probably fiddle around with this a lot in the next days, so don't be too surprised if things change from time to time. Also don't be surprised if the whole thing melts down a lot, since it's literally helphelper-style development - especially when strange chars are in the stream metadata or if there's more than one stream ongoing. Also feel free to name your streams "my stream;drop database statistics;" from now on, I have implemented some very professional* protection against this.

*might not actually be very professional

I added some features to the stat database. For all new streams, the listeners will be tracked over time, so that you can display the listener history. Again, the data will be collected in 5-minute-intervals. For older streams, this data does not exist, so I manually added one measurement to the database, so that they at least will be displayed. The max and average listener calcuation will also be done with this values from now on.

You can reach the corresponding view by clicking on any stream number in other views.

I made a howto in case you want to try out videostreaming with VLC/Win10. It's highly experimental, and what worked for me might not necessarily work for you due to differences in platform. If you encounter problems or have additional information I'd be interested to hear about it. The setup I have now is only a measly proof of concept and seems to be prone to crashing. In case you are interested: I have no idea if livestreaming is possible, like for example streaming a video and do live commentary, for now I only know how to stream existing video files. But since the radio only cares about stream format I guess it's all up to the stream source setup, so in theory it should be possible.
