/mu/ related confessions.
>before understanding why it was cringeworthy I once wore a swans tee and Fantano-style shorts and bought ITAOTS at an urban outfitters
Yeah, sound should be for audio books and shit
I never cringed at any of the music I listened to because at the time I listened to it it represented exactly how it felt. Ive also found it to be way more cringey to be an elitist about something like music. Dismissing entire genres for their "simplicity" or their popularity has always been the epitome of autistic to me.
Every day, every FUCKING DAY I listen to My Girls. I don't even like alot of the album but this one track i just want to dance and clap my hands and go THERE ISN'T MUCH THAT I FEEL I NEED I do it all the time
I change the album tag so that Last.fm will recognize it
I scrobble JRPG soundtracks
My most played bands on Last.Fm are Swans, Radiohead, and Animal Collective, in that order
I wore a bunch of deadmau5 apparel during my sophomore year of high school because I thought that mouse head thing was cool and not because I liked his music.
I wrote an album based entirely on /mu/'s ideas for songs and genre (first reply said write a jangle/dreampop album)
not sure if that should really be a confession, but you'll probably hate me for it.
If a album has a ugly album cover I won't listen to it.
If a band has a shitty fanbase I won't listen to their music (Death Grips, MBV, Radiohead)
If their songs on average are longer than 7 minutes I won't bother listening to their music.
i don't dislike this
agree with this, i listen to music for enjoyment, escapism and emotions other than the mundane ones i derive from my everyday life
really don't see the point of bitching about music which nullifies like half of /mu/ for me
This picture hits me hard, not just because its strikingly similar to my thoughts, but because someone sat there and made fun of themselves, all in order to make that. Whoever created that knew exactly what they were doing (from experience) and it they were being incredibly honest to themselves, and whatever thread they intended to post that in.
Bon Iver/Justin Vernon is my absolute favorite artist.
Father John Misty's shenanigans don't bother me because I actually think it's a good thing to have a couple of people in the industry who are unapologetically pretentious. Not a ton, just a couple people.
Ingrid Michaelson is one of my favorite artists of the 2000s.
My taste is extremely white and boring but I love it.
When I was really depressed I connected really heavily and emotionally to specific albums and movies, now that I'm better that doesn't happen anymore. I don't know what to do with this information.

Father John Misty operates on so many levels of irony that I can't help but find him funny. I mean his dp on Facebook is some girl who dressed as him for Hallowen
He legitimately makes me laugh and I love his asshole pretentious ridiculousness but everyone on /mu/ and other sites finds it insufferable. I think I'm just a fan of anyone who unabashedly and confidently leans into something rather than trying to appease people by being balanced.
Fear Fun and ILYHB are my albums of 2012 and 2015, but when I saw him live, I was looking forward to him being a funny cunt as much as I was the songs. He was being filmed and dedicated Bored in the USA to 'the people who decided to do mushrooms at home.'. During the middle of the song be walked up to the camera and started talking to it going "I see you, your tv is talking to you and you're on mushrooms right now."
He also grabbed someone's phone and recorded a prophecy to YouTube from "Chris Isaak"
>was a dadrock/cockrock apologist up until I was about 12
>from 12 to 15 i abandoned ''mainstream'' rock and metal, listened to exclusively burzum and mayhem and made fun of anyone who didn't enjoy black metal
>discovered /mu/ at 16, quickly began defending /mu/core in real life and I would actually argue how albums like Merriweather Post Pavillion are modern masterpieces and albums from the 60s-90s couldn't even hold a candle to it
>now I hopefully chilled out, don't even talk about music unless someone tries to engage me and then I try not to be a contrarian memespouting shit like I was years ago
I see "congratulations" by MGMT as the best album of all time too me.
I don't know what it is about it the music just feels so perfect, the melodies, atmosphere and the lyrics. The artwork and the way the album progresses. It's like I found my soulmate album but I can also see everything that is wrong with it.
