Guess who’s back to posting! I’ve been gone so long that the page to write articles looks different. Dangdut House Koplo campursari is a surely pirated compilation released on a really sketchy site in who knows when.
This album is made up of some pretty cool Indonesian pop songs. If you’ve been a long time follower you should remember my post about Ojo Sembrono, they have a track on here. Some of the songs amazingly sound similar to Katra Turana, a Japanese avant-garde band from the 80s. This is some really cool/interesting and good music~!
Alright, now to talk about the funny story about finding this. I Googled Ojo Sembrono and find a Discogs type site which was only music like this. It had links which did nothing and triggered my antivirus a billion times. I managed to find a link that brought me to a blogspot that looked like a badly designed website. I tried exploring the site a bit but it constantly triggered my antivirus. There was also pixel-art porn ads making it through my adblock, they were legit permanently embedded into the site. Also a totally pointless chat with someone talking about sex, cleverly using their username in the sentences they were writing. I found this album (and tons more) but there’s no way I’m downloading anything from this site. So I had to rip the audio streams with Audacity. I never finished so there’s one song missing in the download. Even though there’s awesome music there I’m not sure I want to go back, since I got a virus! I didn’t download anything but got a virus from there. Ever since I did the ripping (which took a long time) Firefox started running like crap. Then I got weird false error messages saying I need to restart Firefox since my memory is near full, that doesn’t even make sense and was a lie! Then it repeatedly crashed Firefox, made hidden files visible, and corrupted a picture. Maybe I’ll brave the site again but for now, nope.
Anyways, here’s a safe upload of the album missing the final song. No idea why almost all the songs are titled Merry.
