Also, ambient, drone and noise. And that's coming from someone who likes these a lot — if you consider the entire production in these genres, there's way too much derivative, amateurish, decent-to-middling stuff.
Reggae and ska sound bland to me too but that may be because I know very little about them.
any late 2000's/early 2010's twinkle tweedle diddly dang instrumental "math rock", especially the stuff coming out of japan like toe, tricot and pic related. elevator music for overly sentimental college kids
don caballero accidentally started this shit, despite being a good band
haven't tried these recs out yet but I've heard this described as math-y and I like it, is there anything similar to it?
The whole "alt pop" sound where every artist has a name in all caps, (let's say KIESTO or something stupid like that), an album/ep/song called some single dumb word (something like "Boundries) and basically just results in a third rate purity ring/fka twigs wannabe
Seriously my sister plays all these songs in the car and they honesty all sound the same
indie folk was easily one of the best things to come out of the 'indie' 'movement'. you cannot tell me the decemberists and beirut werent worthwhile. its just they did their thing which was supposed to be a one time thing but it dragged on and became a boring ass trend
garage rock has some of the best and most boring rock music
shoegaze has become bandcampcore
drill music blows cock
hardcore is stagnant as fuck aside from a select few weird great bands (and even then two of the best, NASA Space Universe and Sexdrome, are no more)
im not going to list each genre with the precedent "indie" you fucking faggot. you know what i mean
