Love every bit about this, the guy just jamming out to his laptop, the guy just having this wack ass british accent, him also forcing out his ass and just awkwardly dancing to it. It's just art

This sounds good indeed! <3
What is the genre this falls into?

Their earlier stuff is more clear-cut jazz but this has more metal feeling. Metal jazz, power jazz? idk

So my parents were planning to bring me to a show of Einstürzende Neubauten when I was younger, but decided against it. Today I was reminded they exist and well, they are fucking weird as fuck, but in a very interesting way.

They go from weird clips with nice song (but still a bit weird):
phpBB [video]

Edit: So found an explanation for this song which I think is really beautiful and makes me appreciate it quite a bit more
The music video is fascinating. Notice how certain themes are subtly revealed: being the goat and wearing horns, the horror of self-reflection, the uselessness of make-up and jewelery, and the washing of hands. The setting is a dingy restroom, an underworld where dirty things are meant to be flushed away and forgotten. There's a lot of water, too, which to me is suggestive of the River Styx.

Why do I mention this? Because I think it it ties in strongly with the lyrics, where the flag interpretation is probably correct. The song is many things: a critique of, a lament for, and a dialogue with, modern day Germany. The name Sabrina could be a personification of the country as a motherland. Perhaps the singer (Blixa Bargeld) is treating the nation as his lover, and is describing the qualities which he feels she lacks and should strive for.

Consider all the positive things which the colors of the German flag are said NOT to stand for:
- the beauty of a sunset
- sexual consummation and procreation (i.e. stained sheets, and Zeus' descent as a shower of gold to be with Danae)
- vital fluid, both literal (blood) and symbolic (red wine)
- golden memories and golden ages
- actual valuable gold, which would quickly be snatched if left in the open

Germany's blackness dominates and muddies all the other colors. Malevich's Black Square, for example, is an interesting reference. That painting is usually associated with the new order that was about to be established in the Russian Revolution of 1917. Lenin's utopia, however, never came to be. The fact that the revolution didn't live up to its promise might be tied to the lyric about "a high pitch on a future scale".

As a parallel to Russia, Germany also derailed itself through the rise of Nazi ideals and the "cold furnace" of the Holocaust. Certainly, it's no fun to carry an albatross around your neck into the post-WW2 world. How does a nation collectively atone for such a thing? Is it even possible? How can one move on with dignity rather than forgetfulness?

Those are big question with no easy answers. However, the *desire* to look for answers is important, which a song like "Sabrina" beautifully captures. When Bargeld sings "I wish this would be your color", I like to think he's dedicating it to Germany, with "this" referring to the song itself. Perhaps one day, the country's colors will boldly stand for the right things.

If someone were to ask me if this is a love song, I would say yes. It's about tough love.

Dont think I have shared CocoRosie yet
They are two sisters, one who has the voice of an angel and the other has the voice of a rusted grater, at first you think wtf. But then after a while you start to appreciate it. They make what you call "unusual" music. The difference of the voices + the fact that they use all kinds of random shit to make music with makes a really interesting.

Apart from that song I think that their best album is their first tho:

It's super hard to classify - I'm absolutely in love with Jazz fusion bands like that. It's also not very overproduced and the production sounds natural and earthy.

Completely adored this band as a teenager - seems like they're coming with a new album.
Obviously, metal is a matter of taste, but the memories...

(start sarcasm here) So as we are all Eurovision fan boys here and all enjoyed the Eurovision (stop sarcasm here) because it was really great this year I made a list of songs that probably will find their way on one of my playlists.

Spoiler:
11
phpBB [video]

Just brings me back to 2000s emo rock shit.

10
phpBB [video]

Just somehow a really weird nice jammy song which is kinda minimalistic, but I dig it

9
phpBB [video]

If I ever need something to listen to when I munched some shrooms this will be it.

8
phpBB [video]

Really nice standard song as filler, not bad at all to have in some playlist for background shit with not the best songs.

7
phpBB [video]

Just a nice song tbh

6
phpBB [video]

Not something for Eurovision at all, but is a really nice chill mysterious song. Will definitely listen more to this shit.

5
phpBB [video]

This man is just so gud, this is what I am gonna put on in the shower and dance to

4
phpBB [video]

This man can sing amazing, has an amazing chill song and just makes me feel happy. Really makes you feel like you are drinking wine on a warm night in italy

3
phpBB [video]

The live performance is even better than the video one imo. This man can sing, has an epic song and its just so fucking good tbh

2
phpBB [video]

Yeah this was just amazing. A chanson which is sung that well with so much emotion is just always gud. You can just feel it.

1
phpBB [video]

Yeah this is just actually a modern rock song that is fucking great. Will definetly go on my list and is just a great song.

Listened to this for the first time a few days ago, simply because the beat is produced by the great J Dilla :dealwithit: .

For anyone interested, the original beat by J Dilla is titled 'Trashy'.

I first heard Montaigne on this song:
Spoiler:
phpBB [video]

and I wasn't at all sure if I liked her voice at all. Fast forward a long while and I end up adding '1955' to my playlist but didn't chase up any further.
Then this week I saw her streaming on twitch, making an album cover and talking about the album cover of her first album and I finally listened to her own albums and have ended up listening to both half a dozen times and adding bunch of songs on my playlist, for example this
phpBB [video]

reading up also learned she had been Australia's Eurovision representative

Slightly different music: I assume some of MF DOOM's last works
