Hello all,

What music do you prefer to listen to (if any) when under the inebriation of this libation?

I don't know how open you are to music, I really do listen to everything, this is somewhat differant to anything you may have heard. It's brilliant, if you're open to it, and not neccesarily what it may appear at first.


Kleptones Downloads

Each album is completely differant.

A Night at the Hip-Hopera is a legendary album that has had an enourmous impact, even though it may never given radio-time for reasons that will become apparent if you hear it.

From Detroit to J.A. is great ,as is Yoshimi, and the largely instrumental album Never Trust Originality. The newest one, 24 Hours, could have been better.

If you download by Bittorrent use µTorrent. An elegant solution to torrents.

I like blues and such, and something like Stevie Ray Vaughn works for me, and I also like Al Green.

Music is such a personal thing, it's hard to suggest anything with out really knowing the other person. That being said, here is what I play:

1) Satie, Debussy, Chopin - When I'm drinking alone to relax, this stuff is beautiful.

2) Davis, Monk, Ellington - When drinking with friends, Jazz is great. It doesn't send people to sleep, but doesn't start any fights, either.

3) Portishead, Lamb, Massive Attack - When entertaining, I go trip-hop. It's a great mix of beats and harmonics.

4) Cocteau Twins, Lush, Miranda Sex Garden - When I need the inspiration, Absinthe and ethereal pop never fail me.

*********

Things not to listen to whilst drinking Absinthe:

1) Black Metal - Screaming Norwegian Satanists and Absinthe don't mix.
2) Gangsta - Sometimes I think a lot fewer people would be shot and killed if everyone drank absinthe.
3) Drum 'n' Bass - Way too fast and frantic for absinthe.
4) Gloom Cookies (Chris Isaac, Morrisey, Nick Cave) - Sorry guys, I drink absinthe to stop feeling depressed.

But like I said, it's all very personal.

Hope that helps.

i agree with porsitshead and massive attack. trip-hop is a great way to go for a different kind of...thing. personally, i would recommend the secret machines. they have some really heavy stuff, but its never too fast. maybe some dj mark farina and some mushroom jazz thrown in there too. blink.gif

portishead** sorry i just have a thing with spelling. benevento russo duo is good, flaming lips, awesome, beck, awesome. this is all music that might not fit your immediate idea of "absinthe music" though. st. germain is good. but most of all...Digable Planets. try it. youll like it. maybe. im attempting to suggest something new aside from the obvious great ones already stated above like miles davis and whatnot.

The Ultra Chicks series is actually fucking awesome music.

Don't know what soundtrack they use for Girls Gone Wild, though.

1.) Trance-Tomcraft, Chris Liebling, Paul Van Dyk, etc. live sets from Einslive. Must be live sets.
2.) Rap- Ludacris ("if you think of lighting it on fire...blow it out yo Plain2.gif ")
3.) Punk-The souls, Ramones, Sex Pistols etc.
4.) Hardcore-Commin' Correct, Hatebreed, Darkest Hour, Bad Luck 13, etc.
5.) Lastly the radio if none of the above are obtainable

Speaking of Debussy, I really like Art of Noise: The Seduction of Claude Debussy.

King - Good call on St. Germain. Especially tourist. Okay, so it's become a bit of a cliche, but it's still a good record.

When it comes down to it, if you're really in tune with music, you should be able to tell what will work. My best advice is to have a couple of glasses and then see where the mood takes you. Chances are you'll know exactly what you're looking for.
