‘Confrontational’ music usually conjures up images of angry youths making a loud abrasive noise, usually with shouting/loud guitars/screamed vocals (delete as applicable). It takes something a bit more nuanced to be confrontational without any of those elements. ‘Spring 01’ manages to do this with a foreboding organ loop which skips around a beat which, like the melody, never really resolves building tension up as it goes. Ruddy marvelous.
Welcome to the Tumblr for the University of Sheffield's very own Alternative Music Society! Underneath the ominous banner of "alternative music" we attempt to cram everything wild, weird and wonderful from the whole musical spectrum, so don't be afraid. As a society we put on gigs, organise parties, send out literature and good gig listings every fortnight, and generally cause havok.
If you like what you hear, you can easily become a member! It costs £3 - but that'll get you into all our gigs, and few other people's gigs, for cheap! Not to mention it means we get to put on some mindblowingly awesome artist from a far flung corner of the world. Obviously, we want YOU to get involved too! Come to one of our meetings or talk to us at a gig (or on here), and we'll let you into our little coven ;). We need your help!
