What's your favorite music genres, anons? And why?
I love good old rock'n'roll, jazz (bebop, swing, free jazz), country, folk and avant-garde. Good old times of music, jesus fuck. That groove, that riffs, that pianos, those saxophones everywhere. Fuck me hard.
i like hardcore punk derivatives, esp post-hardcore and emocore
i like the cathartic climaxes tempered by the sinister build-ups
i like the sad
i like the cool imagery
i also like kpop
i like dancing
i like cute girls
that's mostly what i listen to lately
what do you mean by avant-garde because that doesn't really fit my definition of good old times music
I generally like post-punk the most.
It has something thats really unlike other geners. It's kind of dark and at the same time full of energy.
I also like post-rock, especially the heavy stuff, and yeah the crescendos are fine by me.
>what do you mean by avant-garde because that doesn't really fit my definition of good old times music
Yeah, I know. I beg you pardon for my mistake. I should say "also, I like avant-garde music". Avant-garde is just avant-garde. But well, free jazz is kinda avant-garde so you know, Coleman, Braxton, Coltrane and stuff.
Post-punk, post-rock, psychedelia, folk rock, free jazz, hard bop, noise rock
I'm a sucker for classic rock instrumentation, but also creativity, improvisation, and experimentation. Bands who work pop sensibilities into that in a meaningful way is also a plus. I really like all sorts of stuff, if a song uses verse chorus verse and in 4/4 I could still love it, it really just depends.
post-punk, post-rock and avant-garde are my main faves. Lately getting into post-hardcore and minimalism.
I mainly like how they take the base of a long time developed genre and rip it up and start a new genre from scratch that it's a bit more artsy or experimental. And for avant-garde, I just like how they come up with crazy sounds and ideas out of nowhere (or probably drugs) and still make it sound good.
I'd like to hear your favorites on each genre too.
>and yeah the crescendos are fine by me.
third wave fag detected
Fuck that's how I feel specifically about Stars of the Lid. I think it's the only drone/ambient artist that makes me feel that way. Harold Budd, Eno, Hecker and Frost have neat textures though.
Yeah, go on with what we had started. Nothing wrong with discussing our favorite genres.
>I'd like to hear your favorites
Crazy Rhythms, Entertainment!, Metal Box
Millions Now Living, Spirit of Eden, Hex
I won't pretend to know anything about avant-garde
city of caterpillar is probably my favorite
they're like a more refined indian summer with a splash of gybe for good measure
i also really really like killie, but they're a bit heavier on the screamo side
City of Caterpillar are really good indeed, they remind me of Shipping News too.
Don't know about Killie, are they related in any ways to Long Fin Killie (the post-rock band, that is)? I guess it's just a coincidence
maybe that's where they got their name, idk
but they're great
they don't really weave the post-rocky samples and soundscapes in with the hardcore music, they kind of slam it together which makes for some really cool juxtaposition and, like, whiplash
it's really exciting
they've got two full-lengths that are both pretty good, but my favorite is don't want to escape from the underground, which is a quick little ep
it's a bit heavy on the spoken word, and it's in japanese, so idk if that's the best place to start necessarily but you seem like an adventurous fellow haha
