So I’ve thought of this for a while, there’s a few of us music nerds who share similar interests/passions and there’s a lot of video content out there that we share already or might want to share with each other.
So this is a thread to do that.
Basic guidelines are:
Long format videos (around 10 minutes or more)
Hosted on a streaming platform (free or paid for)
Must be about music in some capacity (like production, analysis, trivia)
One video per reply, and try and do one a week or so; as to stop this from being a dumping ground.
I’ll start the ball rolling:
A 1 hour and a bit documentary of a guys memories of working for Columbia House, one of the rather famous “record clubs” that existed during the 20th Century.
Pretty much everything from Adam Neely is super interesting. One video I’d want to highlight is his discussion of how “music theory” is almost always used in an eurocentric manner (because white supremacist ideology sneaks in in so many parts of our lives that we are oblivious to if it doesn’t get pointed out to us):
I posted this somewhere on here a while back, but I’ll add it here too~
PergProductions made a great series on the history of metal and it’s many subgenres. even if you’re not really into metal, it’s still quite a fun watch~ the playlist is below, or here’s the first video in the series
Analysis/production video by Ken Marshall, known as mixing engineer for a variety of post-industrial bands, including Front Line Assembly and Skinny Puppy. In this video he breaks down the song I. E. D. from 2010 FLA’s album “Improvised Electronic Device” (industrial-metal/electro-industrial), track by track. 50 minutes long and very informative.
I’ve been following this podcaster for about a year now. She does a weekly series called Multi Level Mondays that covers multilevel marketing companies and other scams. One episode deals with BurnLounge, a now-defunct MLM that dealt in digital music downloads:
I’ve gone deep into the MLM tunnels (not joining them hah, just reading…) and it’s fascinating! I’ve actually been looking for rips of MLM ‘training tapes’ for ages. Sub-orgs of MLMs like Amway pump them out like crazy, in their thousands, but it’s actually quite hard to find any online in full.
If anyone has an aunty with a bunch of that crap lying around, hook me up
I was going to recommend checking out Uncommon Ephemera on YouTube, as they had a collection of obscure media like this. Unfortunately they took their entire collection down upon receiving complaints from copyright trolls
