tame impala arent that bad but i hate them now because all the normies and plebs at college know about them :/
and theyre only like 3 years late :/
thank god i liked tame impala when they were still relatively unknown
anyone feels the same about other music?
I know that feel OP, although not really because when I first heard Tame Impala back in the day I thought it was some hack john lennon wannabe psych fag rock shit and threw it in the trash
I can't take people seriously who take their own music taste so seriously they must justify what they don't or do like by shitty scene politics. just admit that you like or don't like something because of your own subjective taste. you don't have to like everything "cool" and dislike everything "lame."
whether you are being serious or not, I know plenty of people on /mu/ really think this way. having this kind of attitude towards music shows that you see it as a status symbol more than anything
I like how people use the words elitism and pretentious as if it's a bad thing. If we weren't pretentious we wouldn't enjoy as much as we enjoy. If much music wasn't pretentious and every artist went out of their way to sound like every other artist so that no one is offended by extremities in their art or something too personal music would most certainly suck. If you don't like pretentious art you may be better off living in a world with no individuality, no color, minimal differences, everyone looks and does the same things, no one has a mind and life of their own, and everyone is always looking to be like the other guy to further separate themselves from meaning and individuality in their lives.
Everything in art is forced in some way but it seems to most people that if the art is too extreme in a way or different it's more forced somehow. I guess it would be better off for you if no art existed ever then. No one will even have feelings, the music shop would only carry blank CD's. There would not even be the most generic albums that are labeled "rock artist 1 - album". There that's better nothing to offend to anyone or challenge anyone's senses in way that would cause a confused reaction. The perfect world for you people that feel to call everything out you see as pretentious.
i never talk to anyone about music and people don't know about my taste, if they did they'd probably find the majority of music i like weird (which is funny because in a few years they're going to like some of the artists i like too)
so how do i care about the image the music gives me? if i did then i'd brag about my taste all the time and whatnot
same with this :/
same with swans, when the seer (which is pretty bad by swans standards btw) came out every suddenly started to love them, just because it's a highly critically acclaimed album
to be kind was even top 40 or something (top lel!)
people don't even know about sftb and think tbk and the seer are the greatest albums ever
i wish swans never regrouped
I don't think he is. Take a video game like portal or sonic. If you ever want to discuss those games the vast majority of people who like them are lame as fuck. It's like that, but with music.
you still have this internal strife about what other people listen to. a normal person forms their own opinions about what they like based on how the music sounds, not who else listens to it. to reasonably dislike something because of its popularity it would have to be some top 40 radio shit that's overplayed. but nothing talked about on /mu/ falls into that category.
>to reasonably dislike something because of its popularity it would have to be some top 40 radio shit that's overplayed.
>but nothing talked about on /mu/ falls into that category
Ummm, do we browse the same /mu/?
Rich Homie Quan, Charli XCX, Sky Ferreira, Drake, Chief Keef, A$AP Rocky, Young Thug, Vampire Weekend... All top 40 radio shit.
ok, drake, charlie XCX, sure. people post about how much they hate drake and how hot charlie XCX is. same with taylor swift. none of those others (including tame impala) are even remotely mainstream enough to get multiple plays on major pop radio. the standard for "obscurity" on /mu/ is way higher than in real life.
i have legitimately never felt this. if "normies and plebs" are listening to something i like, then thats awesome. the only reason you would not like it is because you only listen to bands to feel cool. so stop doing that, asshole.
