How about instead of identifying with your taste in music and literature you guys actually read a fucking book or learn a fucking instrument or something. Fucking embarrassing teenage behavior
>>20369098Because it's a fun and simple thread on a forum that the least autistic of us thumb through on our phones. A distraction at best. Do you take /lit/ seriously?
Albums here are all lesser than any book that I could recommend

>>20374916The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath
>>20367640A good recommendation.
I swear to God if anyone says the Bible
>>20376334The dead sea scrolls
>>20374782Against Nature by Jk Huysmans
>>20374180>getting upset when well respected and popular albums get posted in an album threadWhy feel the need to be a smug cunt? Just appreciate your supposed superiority in silence
i want to read something more before i die
>>20367638Forest Swords - Engravings
Still no recommendation.How about Solar Fields - Sol?Any book for that?Probably something SCIFI.
>>20377488That's easy. Turner Diaries.

>>20376135no longer human
>>20371086How about Daphnis and Chloe. Personally though, I’ve always gotten a 19th century/20th century absurdist/modernist feel while coming to terms with something Dionysian/traditional. That’s just my own weird “feel” though. If you can sense/understand that feeling, I might recommend something like Le Comte de Monte Cristo, or Dracula. Both of which philosophically and aesthetically seem to me at least to deal with the human condition as it exists.
>>20378647Zoomer shit? That album art looks pretty surrealistic. Didn't think Zoomers would be into that. But, the music can be completely different from the way the album looks. Maybe, just like a book, you shouldn't judge an album by its cover art. Anyway. I'll do another one, one that really can't be classified as Zoomer shit, I believe, and that people here will enjoy.Brian Eno - Thursday Afternoon
>>20373505Probably any high fantasy novel (high, in the sense of epic; epic in the sense of heroic).>>20378037Stanislaw Lem - Cyberiad
>>20380662Actually, I know it's the wrong way around, but I think the perfect fit between Cyberiad and a particular album would be Jean-Michel Jarre, Zoolook. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XfRtFlCIO60
The Shins - Chutes too Narrow
Ed Harrison - Rebuildhttps://edharrison.bandcamp.com/track/rebuildLiterature?
>>20368887norwegian wood probably >>20369640100 years of solitude>>20377488papa adolf would be proud of those digits; perfume or american psycho

SO CUT MY WRISTS AND BLACK MY EYES
>>20381016besides classic cyberpunk (neuromancer, gits, etc.), maybe Norbert Wiener's Cybernetics would be a good fit
>>20383397Harry Potter>>20383387Nietzsche's aphorisms
>>20370465catcher in the rye, dantes inferno
Convince me Peep wasn't Byron/Pushkin incarnate>>20367638Maybe Laureli's Garden (not yet published). Not a book but Twin Peaks. >>20368186Good album but peaks way too hard on the first song. Post-hardcore isn't much of a book thing. Listen to Died>>20368243I'm not DRAINED but Notes from the Underground, maybe>>20368873My god flood is amazing. Бoжe мoй! Listen to it on DXM! Kind of an experience only music can give you, but maybe >>20369704RIP steppa. Haven't listened to this enough to give a reccomendation>>20370465Eugene Onegin -- youthful disenchantment at it's finest!! My favorite album! Makes me sad every time I listen to it though :) :(>>20372856The cover would have you think Burroughs but actually Wyndham Lewis>>20376135Molloy, Malone Dies, The Unnameable>>20376511Mason & Dixon>>20383437Whatever I was reading my sophomore year of college (infinite jest)
>>20383738well, Peep and Byron were both talentless hacks who made art for children
>>20384171TakeItback!! Have you read Manfred?Have you listened to Lil peep part 1?"I'm geeked up like a nerd writing these poems"
