What artists/groups/bands do you guys name drop for qt3.14s? I was thinking about what genres and artists I would talk about with a girl and I'm not sure what I'd say. Obviously you don't want to sperg out and intimidate her but you also don't want to come across as a phony or whatever.
So, I was thinking that we could each list artists that we would mention in an initial conversation and kindly let each other know if an artist is too accessible or inaccessible.
1. Nick Drake
3. Animal Collective
4. The Antlers
5. Charles Mingus
6. Fiona Apple?
7. Flying Lotus
8. Glass Animals
9. James Blake
10. My Bloody Valentine
11. Run the Jewels
List however many you want.
(Pic unrelated by the way)
Whatever I actually like. If I'm worried she'll think I'm weird for some reason I just won't mention it, but I'm not going to lie about my taste
Like I won't tell anyone I listen to jazz unless they actually want to know, but it's not like I'll go out of my way to hide it. I guess I usually tell people the more popular rock bands I listen to, like TVU, Built to Spill, Neil Young, YLT, etc
I mostly keep my taste to myself though
These are my go to's, they almost always work and its a good balance between pleb and good stuff
>Tame Impala, FIDLAR, Wavves, The Weeknd, Neutral Milk Hotel, Arctic Monkeys, The xx, Velvet Underground, MGMT, Animal Collective, MBV,Sufjan Stevens, Fleet Foxes, Joy Division, The Smiths, The Cure
Lol, I don't want to be predictable though. I'll use it though.
What do you talk about with girls then? Music is one of the best conversation starters.
Diversity. Also don't want to be predictable by saying Miles Davis or Coltrane. I think it's a good idea to have jazz musicians on reserve for if the girl is actually interested music or having a conversation about music.
Why didn't I think of that one? Thanks for reminding me.
Great for angsty moods haha

>Thanks for that constructive and informative post. Good job.
Maybeh Al-Zuq Yadeek you bitch nigga.
>tell girls exactly what I listen to
>do it without a hint of irony
>say it as though they should know what I'm talking about
>they either get intimidated and I stop talking or they show interest and I proceed from there
it doesn't really matter what they listen to, so long as they have potential to be patrish
If she's actually interested in music she will respect you saying Davis or Coltrane. I know the meme, but jazz criticism is not like rock criticism, they are seriously two of the greatest
Also, Mingus is almost as "predictable", not that that matters. Why can't you just say your favorite like a normal human being?
People like you really suck. Why do you feel the need to pretend just to have a conversation and get laid? Men and women alike will respect you just being natural and honest. Faking your taste will probably bite you in the ass down the road
>What do you talk about with girls
I talk about music, it's just I don't give them a list of my top ten bands when I meet them in hopes of them letting me get in that pussy
You're misunderstanding my motivations. All of the artists I listed are artists that I like so I'm not faking my taste. I'm also not looking for a magic list that opens girls' legs; I just want to find artists I like that are likely to make a good impression. And no, I don't list top tens; that list is composed of artists that I like and thought about mentioning in conversation with potential gfs.
i posted sufjan stevens couse its accessible, somewhat popular but not that much, a good musician overall, and the most important part, the feels hur
Wilco, The Radio Dept. are good options too
ULTIMATE FEMALE MUSCI LIST:
Years & Years
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Bring me the horizon
The Black Keys
Foster the People
Mumford and Sons
Kings of Leon
Cold War Kids
Maybe you'll miss out on your dream girl because she'll sense you're just picking tumblr-core to impress her
I love how so many /mu/tants shit on the entire female sex for only pretending to enjoy music to impress others, and all of you do the exact same thing
>It's different, we only do it 'cos they do!
Honestly it's lame. What's the issue with just saying a couple of your genuine favorite bands, regardless of what she might think? You might be surprised when girls say "Oh! I haven't heard of them!" and they could be genuinely interested, rather than you just carefully picking artists you know she already likes. That's fucking boring
>all these autists going with safe/generic music to avoid showing that they are at all interesting
protip: bitches love anything catchy, even if it's "weird" or "lo fi"
>any kind of lo-fi garagey power pop
not op, i dont think he wants to pick artist that she might know to impress her and create that ''we were born to love each other" thing but to try to remind what artist do him like that could be 'interesting' to her to listen
Olivia Tremor Control
Built to Spill
Yo La Tengo
Mothers of Invention
My Bloody Valentine
I generally ask what music they like first, and talk about that if it's anything I enjoy. If not, I'll mention what I like if they ask. If that doesn't start a conversation, just move to a new topic.
Most of this stuff is pretty intuitive.
If you're curious what music I like, here are a few:
>The .357 String Band
But normally I talk about genres in the abstract and only mention artists if she shows interest.
I figured, it was a joke
I don't agree though. He said he didn't want to sperg out and "intimidate" girls with his taste. What the fuck is that, man? He's not trying to give them cool new stuff to listen to, just tell them what they already know so they will like him more
It's like people deliberately try to not be interesting because they want to be as safe as possible. It's just insecurity
