>tfw depressed, especially bored, drinking alone, eating leftover pizza, listening to loud shoegaze
Anyone else with this feel? I don't even know what to do with myself anymore. Also post shoegaze I guess. Listening to pic related now
>tfw this was litterally you a year ago and now you cant listen to mbv because of fucking tinnitus
nice quads bb. i tried RHP but couldnt get into it. codeine's frigid stars was my first intro to slowcore but sadly im having trouble finding another album to compare. I'll bet it would click with repeated listens though, idk. I havent heard of the other one, ill try it now. Thanks anon
now youve got me worried. loveless is my favorite album and i wear headphones pretty much all the time, whether im listening to music, watching netflix, playing vidya, etc. im sorry bud.
Twin Infinitives gives me immense feelings of alienation and solitude for some reason. I really like it. The album finally clicked on my 15th listen and now it's in my top 15.
You have to approach it with an open mind, drinking a lot when listening to it obviously helps.
it was because i played in my car all time and at first i thought it was my speakers going out like they were fucked up or something? but it was my ears. if you hear like ringing then go to the doctor and they can give you a steroid shot be careful man it sucks
Thanks for the heads up. I dont listen to anything too loud but i always need to feel the need to ask people to turn the tv up and stuff like that so im afraid that i might be hurting myself
before you say >reddit, grow the fuck up
It fixes mine for a decent amount of time which is straight up crazy, how is this not a known thing? Try it out man, let me know how it goes
I used to give in to my depression and be content with feeling like shit while listening to appropriate music.
A while back I convinced myself not to give in to the depression all the time. Now however whenever I feel myself getting depressed an automatic mental response kicks in telling me not to be. I don't feel depressed but I get this throbbing painful feeling in my head and chest while not feeling anything emotionally. What music is appropriate for this feel?
Sounds like in your situation I would listen to something off of Car Seat's bandcamp
That album is pretty good but Wirr are such douche bags. =(
i know, i have nothing against trans people but i try to separate politics from the music and whirr makes great music. I tried car seat headrests and i ususally like lo fi but with them it seems so contrived to me for some reason. sounds like they put a record player in a fishbowl or some shit. idk ill give it another go just for you.
also sorry guys captcha is getting harder
Ya, for listening purposes I try to separate it but you wont see me at any shows considering how they treat their fans. Last thing I want is to be pissed on after paying to see someone play heh.
That's understandable, at first it kinda pushed me away as well, but it grew on me pretty quick after listening to How To Leave Town. Letting the lyrical play outweigh some of the lacking production had me coming back. Also the new album seems to ditch some of that heavy lo-fi feel in places.
What's your favorite shoegaze album? I need more recommendations to branch out into the genre.
I do. Found out yesterday that my girlfriend had another boyfriend. Like, not even some guy she fucked. Proper boyfriend. So I get the feels. It's strange, because it's music that really really makes me want to off myself, but at the same time the only thing preventing it.
>not using music as a way to move past depression
I was like that too until I fulfilled all the qualities that NEET me lacked. Started going to therapy, got a job, went to school, figured out a program and a plan that will take care of the next couple of years.
On the side, I signed up for music related things and I'm working on improving my music skills as an exercise and it helps.
I listen to a shitload of jazz these days and I'm constantly humming and learning tunes while genuinely enjoying it. When I was depressed, all I listened to was shoegaze and abrasive punk.
If you're thinking "fuck that, you privileged fcucker" then let me stop you there. I've lived my entire life in the lower middle class, stepping into poverty every once in a while. All of my music experience was second hand or really shitty or really brief so I'm mostly self taught. The plus side to being low mid class is free or really cheap healthcare. Therapy is free as long as I find the therapist myself and fill out all the paperwork. I did this behind my abusive dad's back for years until I moved out. I took the city bus and made 1hr+ commutes weekly but they were worth it. As far as jobs go, I struggled a lot with that, but my first job was at a thrift store when I was 19. Thrift stores seem to always be looking for workers. After that, getting a job became a lot easier.
I've also been going to community college. Another perk of being poor is that the FAFSA basically pays you to go to school (as long as you don't blow your money on new books). You get your generals done while doing something you enjoy on the side. Paperwork's a bitch, but well worth it.
Have you listened to this OP? I think you would like it, and it fits your current mood.
You'll be fine
I play drums + listened to nothing but Madonna and Hijokaidan and other noise artists for a year or two and I'm fine
My hearing is fucked but besides not being able to listen for shit in loud environments or hear high frequencies I'm fine
