3X3: Broadening Your Musical Palette

Recommended Posts

Music is a unique, varied, and malleable form of art that breathes life into almost every other aspect of culture and media. For me, personally, music has played an important role in my development as an individual. Though I don't have any particular talent musically, music and musicians that I have been introduced to over the years have been key players in my tastes and personality, and that remains a constant to this day. With that in mind, I had the idea for an experiment (when I say 'had an idea', I really mean 'stole the idea from /mu/ and a dozen other boards on 4chan') in which we would present 9 albums in a three-by-three gridย (preferably 900x900 image size and coupled with links),ย with the express purpose of sharing our tastes and introducing each other to new music. The albums don't have to be current or obscure, or really fit any sort of theme, rather any music you think deserves to be shared and might deserve more recognition. Hopefully we can get lots of people into lots of new artists, and maybe even new genres they either thought they didn't like, or were entirely unaware of. I'll kick things off with nine very chill albums I've been listening to to get into the fall mood, as fall has always been a pretty mellow time of year for me.

This is a really nice idea, perhaps even making a YouTube playlist of everything in here could be nice. Just bump or edit the original post every now and then with update date.

sorry for off topic, but @Romeo you can use ms paint

when u make new doc go to properties and set width and height to 900 x 900 pixels. Then on google images just do a search for artist album name 300x300 then find one thaqt is 300 by 300 then view full size image, copy and paste into paint. rinse n repeat
