Twee isn't a real genre, btw, it's just a derogatory descriptor used by journalists on NME and Melody Maker in the 80s and 90s that got reclaimed as a neutral term for indie pop in the 2000s

But for music usually associated with "Twee", listen to every album and compilation released on Sarah Records, including:
Blueboy - Unisex
The Orchids - Unholy Soul
St Christopher - Bacharach
The Field Mice - Snowball
Brighter - Laurel
Heavenly - Le Jardin de Heavenly
Another Sunny Day - London Weekend
Even as We Speak - Feral Pop Frenzy

Also
Talulah Gosh - Was It Just a Dream?
Beat Happening - You Turn Me On
Tiger Trap - s/t

Bearsuit and Los Campesinos! were my first
>>
>>61794323

I suggest listening to their first three albums because they get rather campy later on

Why would you listen to The Shaggs other than for the novelty

Why does my favorite boy leave me an EP

I like cute, but it just seems like they are trying way to hard to be "so randum" or make fun of an era that they were never a part of, and that is something that always annoys me
>>
>>61794555
what?
>>
>>61794585
can i leave this thread now

Don't take too seriously, anon. It's suppose to be pop fun, not a Greek play.
>>
>>61794595
I don't understand what your post was all about though...
>>
>>61794555
Is this your "I don't even care anymore"-era of posting?
>>
>>61794607
this sort of mentality is retarded, really.
>>
>>61794641
Okay

Interpret it anyway you want. It's not my business.
>>
>>61794678
it's just that their whole shtick seems either to leddit "oooo look at us we so crazy" or just plain mean spirited "haha, twee culture used to be a thing, it's so fucking lame", depending on the song
>>
>>61794729
If Tullycraft is too much for you. Try their early works or try Crayon

I'm sorry but this post is so tryhard and cringeworthy. Pls rethink ur life pls goddam this post
>>
>>61795145
You're literally molesting art every time you say "twee" and lump Blueboy, Heavenly, Field Mice and Orchids in with Tullycraft.
>>
>>61795231
I don't even agree with those people, I was just saying the fact that you don't agree with an often repeated sentiment doesn't make it "just a meme"
>>
>>61795231
Tullycraft is better than all those bands combined

A patrician like myself will understand this.
>>
>>61795284
I contend that yes, it is a meme.
>>
>>61795374
nice bait

actually for tallulah this peel session is pure fire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhNi3oFY-oA
>>
>>61795439
But that's not the reason it's a meme. The fact that it's an oft repeated (dating back to 1985-6) word used to simplify and lump together a variety of musical output makes it a meme.

Just because you're not familiar with how dergrotory and offensive the word twee is doesn't mean you aren't meme spouting right now.

>>
>>61795991
Tweens?

Their demos were WAY better than the actual album though
>>
>>61795581
something doesn't have to be derogatory to be a meme, and technically every music genre ever is a meme, so according you everyone that ever uses a music genre is a scumbag meme spouter
>>
>>61796143
>according you everyone that ever uses a music genre is a scumbag meme spouter
This might also be true.

But "twee" is especially (maliciously) spirited. The strong implications behind the word in a musical context far exceed the criticism many artists in the genre deserve. The term is made useless, furthermore, by the fact that many "twee" songs are in fact very different from each other and could be more readily compared to a range of other genres including baroque, alt dance or even just rock or punk. Does a late Field Mice song sound anything like a Beat Happening song? Not the least that every "twee" artist is not always "cute" or uses primitive instrumentation.

That's what makes "twee" a meme in my book.
>>
>>61796559
that's not what makes something a meme in the way you were putting it though, stop trying to back track you dumb fuck
>>
>>61796613
I don't think I've done any back tracking and you haven't said anything to make me change my mind.
>>
>>61794249
There's no patrician twee pop.
It's a pleb genre.
