Please tell me this affectation ridden pseudosincerity post-ironic music fad will be over soon.

I liked this album, and i think the closer track is genuinely fantastic and the best part of it.

The fact you haven't liked it, well, that's like just your opinion.

Courtney Barnett's music has nothing to do with being ironic or putting on an affect...she's just singing about shit in her life

This post is insanely pointless, like in a really weird way.

i liked this, i dont know why people on here call things they dont like "reddit"

for a site you all claim to hate you sure talk about it a lot.
>>
>>61900227

Reddit is basically a euphemism for white liberal teenagers/early 20s males who unironically use words like "problematic" in arguments.
>>
>>61900227
This is what happens when /v/ /tv/ and /r9k/ invade a board en masse

The same shit happened to /a/ but their board culture has enough defenses against this type of thing (loli threads) that it repels most of them

/mu/ is too carefree to really push them away and now we're dealing with the aftermath
>>
>>61899442
nah man, not really reddit...

it's just that in North America we have this fascination with Australians/Kiwis. Their "laid back" persona is a subject of envy for our up-tight culture. Her music is sloppy, lazy, slacker, etc. but of course very "sincere" and has pretty solid production. It's made for the Juno audience but even easier to sell since she's Australian and a "chill" lesbian.

What question? You just strung together buzzwords like a thirteen year old who just discovered he could get away with cursing.

Elevator Operator and Depreston are great songs and most of the other songs are good too.

I cannot begin to describe the disdain I have for this sort of music. To be honest, if I focus really hard on the instruments, shut out the vocals and pretend that they were being sung by someone tolerable and with lyrics that aren’t embarrassing, I can potentially see why this isn’t bad. But the truth is that she is there, she is awful, she is unbearably moronic and she does ruin any little bits of skill that the drums or guitars bring in. After one of my friends declared Barnett his “new waifu” I decided to check this out, and after confronting him about this absolute nonsense, he made a comment along the likes of only enjoying it to impress girls at parties. This album is exactly the sort of thing that those teenage girls who listen to “indie” as an image or a statement would lap up. They’ll talk about the bad vocals as “dylan-esque”, and will break into singing quotes from the frankly embarrassing lyrics whenever they can, because they’re SO ME XD, snapping up lines like “I want to wash out my head with turpentine cyanide” as if they’re extremely meaningful poetry. And jesus, I haven’t even mentioned the accent. If there was ever a convincing case for a nuke heading right to the middle of Australia’s eastern coast, this is it. An album filled with nonsense psuedo-meaningful ‘indie’ lyricism, complete with an image you’d expect one of those Sundance films advertised as indie (but actually aren’t), mostly forgettable instrumentation and songwriting, and one of the worst voices you’ve ever heard. Is there anything worse?

Does this sound like almost a dead-ringer for Life Without Buildings to anyone else?
>>
>>61900748
Thank you.

>>61900759

Nonononononononono please no. Life Without Buildings are a wonderfully energetic impassioned group bursting with an incomparably propulsive energy. How do they remind you of Barnett at all?

If someones opinion is pointless then your thread is pointless too.
>>
>>61901198
It's that he needlessly engaged this weird rhetoric about opinions (which is redundant and presupposed -- we all know music is subjective, but "wahh my opinion" is not conducive to discussing the artform we all love) while giving a vague, underbaked opinion himself.
>>
>>61900227
I've used Reddit for mere minutes of my life, and the only real reason I've avoided it is because of the stupid meme tradition of hating "le reddit XD!"...

I like her "flow" and the music that never really goes anywhere. The lyrics are whatever but its like an entire album of the quiet parts from Daydream Nation.

Depreston is a great track.

Memes aside, why do people actually hate her and her album?
>>
>>61900673
you criticise it for being 'faux indie', but what is her stuff if not indie.

She releases her music on her own label that she started herself, and she influences every aspect of her music - that's pretty indie. Her stuff is supposed to be something that the average person can relate to, it's not sarcastic or anything. She actually is really laid-back in her interviews (it's actually kinda of annoying to listen to)

If you don't like her music then fair enough, but it isn't artificial, ironic 'indie' music, and she is pretty talented. The album is both popular and critically acclaimed, so it's done alright. I don't even like her stuff much, but I respect what she's done>>61900748
>>
>>61904222
You answered your own question my man. All hate on here for anything is a meme. Unless the like for it is a meme (looking at you deathgrips and kpop)
>>
>>61899442
Silly OP, there's nothing ironic about her lyrics.
Listen to her Sea of Split Peas double LP, it's even better.

I never bothered listening to this album until this thread. Just want to say thanks, it was pretty damn good.

For /mu/, Reddit = "anything I don't like"
>>
>>61900673
I've seen this post before. Well meme'd, I didn't expect to see it again.
>>
>>61899442
While you all talk about the meaning of reddit, I'd like to quietly point out that this album is indeed teen-hipster trash.
