Why do you ignore thousands of years of music with variety only second to art music?
Maybe you should look at yourself first next time you call someone narrow/closed minded or a pleb for writing off your favorite subgenre.
If you do listen to folk, what do you like?
Because most of folk music was generic jingle shit for plebs while the real advances in music were made in other more sophisticated fronts.
The only good think about old-school folk is when some edgy artists takes small influences from it and then does enhance it with actually good music. Remain in Light is a good example.
No, that's not cool enough for the "patrician" meme crowd.

>with variety only second to art music?
Which I disagree with.
>the "patrician" meme crowd
They don't exist anymore, this isn't 2010.
Its 2016 and its all about listening to the most degenerate and simplistic memerap and pop now, anything else is ''fedora''.
Do keep up Hampy.
Nah, "patrician" memers and "avant-teens" seem to still be every where. Why else would this thread even be here? We all know /mu/ doesn't give a shit about traditional and regional musics.
For the few who actually have a genuine interest in the different music styles offered from other countries that aren't just pop/rock, hip hop and dance music.
I would much rather listen to a good dub album or some Aussie didgeridoo music than ever be succumbed to the sounds of Young Thug, Kanye or Grimes ever again.

Then why is directly addressed to the people who DON'T listen to trad music?

It's pretty obvious that you're not looking for an open discussion on folk music, but rather to insult and instigate a shitstorm with the people who don't actually care.
I only folk that makes me cry or want to kill myself.
Yep, for the reason mentioned up here >>61760930
It's pointless. The only way you'd get people to "care" about folk music is by making it seem "cool" to do so. You need to create a positive image for people to associate with.
How did that work out for your /trad/ threads again?
I see they thrived in your absence and still happen daily with 10s of posters in every general and all the tapmusic charts are full of Smithsonian-core.
You just have to make a thread where you share such music and have two or three other people do it without sounding like a bunch of smug cunts.
The op made me think of all the trolls who say that field recordings and music concrete are the ultimate patrician music or whatever.
>How did that work out for your /trad/ threads again?
My own notorious persona was dead by the time I started making daily /trad/ threads. If I had been making them in 2012-2013, it would've been something completely different.
I agree with the sentiment, but I know that just making threads like that doesn't work.
I don't mean share threads where you just spam DL link, I mean something like a general but without the "lel our music is obvious superior!" bullshit. Just people talking about all kinds of folk with a focus on traditional folk music.
I remember a few years ago when people started shunning metal in /mu/ and now we have a constant general where people mind their own business and talk about it undisturbed.
>Hows uni going anyway?
It's going recently well, got good grades on all exams so far except for one, on which I got a C. Another exam in an hour, integration of perception, behaviour, cognition and emotion. Tomorrow I'm hosting a party at my place, which means it's time for a normie playlist.
>Still with that ginger bird?
Thats cool, good to see its going well. Always glad to see your unwanted son doing well!
That playlist makes me feel ill. Needs more Evil Nine.
>like not posting pop or modern folk
But that wasn't what they were for.
Barely anyone tripfagged in /trad/ threads. Also popular and modern folk was allowed, as long as it was firmly based in traditional or regional music. Posting western pop folk would defeat the purpose of the threads entirely. Themes were added because in a meta-thread, it was collectively decided that it would be the best course of action to generate activity. It didn't work.
>me on the left
Its all wonderful, things tick over as ever, the snow never falls and the market bores the crap out of me so I end up back here and then this place bores me even more so I just go trawl the gay bars as cliche's expect.
Its just disappointing sometimes, the south coast is just too far north for warmth and too far south for a decent snowfall, makes it all grey, dull and boring. But yeah, that beats -25C. Fuck that unless its a ski resort.
I do live about an hour from one of Sweden's best ski resorts, so that's pretty nice. We also have a couple of slopes and lifts here in town, but they're too small for me. Ait off to school, good talking to you.
Not inherently but without diversity I have no reason to listen to one piece of work over another. There is little justification for a piece to exist if it is merely a replication of something previous. It is one thing to improve upon a particular sound but another to create something identical.
When it comes to exploring a genre, particularly one where the listener lies outside of the cultural confines of that genre. There isn't much to be gained from exploring the genre beyond a few token artists and albums.
