Chvrches and Honeyblood are pretty great.
Same with Camera Obscura and Nouvelle Vague (although all Nouvelle Vague do are covers in their own style)
>>
>>55350754

>>55350873
Chvrches is absolute trash, uninspired and overproduced

Mass of the Fermenting Dregs and Wakusei Abnormal.

All the female jap artists are great

Does anyone on /mu/ listen to Waxahatchee or Swearin'? They're both pretty good, though not really my favorite. Kinda have a thing for Katie Crutchfield, pic related
>>
>>55350859
Important in what sense? Social movement, yes. Musically, terrible.
>>
>>55350873
Camera Obscura are good, Chvrches are shit, Nouvelle Vague are a band I've never heard of but I just saw that they covered XTC and that's alright with me. I've never tried listening to Honeyblood.
>>
>>55350954
>Waxahatchee

I thought it was pretty dull. It's just more of the same generic-indie-rock that makes pretty safe music. It isn't bad, but it's just incredibly harmless.

That's a good assessment actually. I played along to my girl's Cerulean Salt record and thought, "dang I could have written this album in a day." Which, again, is not to say that it's bad music.

Think it's way better than the s/t. 8/10 for me. Loving the consistency, vocal performances, layered guitars, and stronger songs. Feel Right at Home/For You I Am is one incredible closer. For You I Am has the potential to be my SOTY.

I agree it isn't bad music. but you're right, someone who's knowledgeable on guitar could have probably churned out an album like it at a pretty fast pace. To me the blandness of it is more annoying than something abrasive like perfect pussy, because even PerfectPussy at least tries to be adventurous with it's sound.

if you think they were bad then you must not like punk at all, cause they were just as good as other big punk bands, AND they had a message

same

>>55351259
Oh damn. I can't believe we forgot. Portishead are great. We also forgot based Stereolab.
>>
>>55350859

They pretty much ruined punk. After them it would be impossible for a band with lyrics like Big Black, the Angry Samoans or Meatmen to exist.

No mention of The Slits? Or Bush Tetras? Or ESG?

their new album is kinda wank tho

St. Vincent is not a band.

what the fuck is st vincent then

Honestly I think women are inherently worse at making rock music compared to men.

Rock is a genre fueled by masculinity. The only exception would be Patti Smith who was basically a dude.
>>
>>55351832
What about No Wave though
>>
>>55351832
Lydia Lunch nor Kim Gordon are feminine in anyway. All the best No Wave is fronted by men anyway.

Annie. Saying St. Vincent is a band is like saying Bjork is a band.

CC wouldn't be shit without alice
>>
>>55352110
I guess Bjork is a band too because she writes and other people play the instruments. He'll, solo artists don't exist because nobody does everything themselves.
>>
>>55352110
>>55352689
Not to mention she's played more than one instrument on all her albums but S/T. Go look at Marry Me's credits. She can play guitar, bass, drums, synths, piano/keyboard, sand more all to a certain extent. Hell, she was in a band where she played bass. She's played bass with John Vanderslice.
