I Don't Know Which Section To Make A Slowcore Thread In

So I'm putting it here.

Let's talk about it.

Carissa's Wierd, S, Red House Painters, Early Day Miners, Low, that sort of stuff.

**** yeah. Songs About Leaving would be my favourite slowcore album. Escape the Day's Ghostless is amazingly heartbreaking, too.

Is slowcore actually core? In any form? I'll look it up.

Slowcore & Sadcore are my two favourite genres.

It gets discussed here frome time to time. There used to be a relatively active red house painters thread (relative to the amount of activity Alt/indie usually gets)

But i guess some of it ties in with pop punk/emo so that's where the confusion arises.

F*ck though man red house is genius. Down colorfull hill is an all time fave.

Red House Painters' Ocean Beach and Down Colorfull Hill are probably the best slowcore albums ever.

what the hell is sadcore though?

Low is the shit. The new album was fantastic, and I'm hopefully going to be seeing them live this year. I love having them as a "local" band.

Also, has anyone heard any of Jenn Ghetto's solo stuff, aka, "S"?

Yeah, I heard S. Didn't enjoy it like I did with Carissa's Wierd.

Gonna have to back Down Colorful Hill as the best slowcore album. Medicine Bottle is just that damn depressing

I've only heard Low, but unless the other bands are very different, there is nothing "-core" about them.

i do believe that it is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek term.

i've only got Sadstyle and from what i remember it was pretty good, but it has been a while. i'm going to give it a listen now and i'll report back.

has everyone but me heard the latest Low album? i'm not sure if i want to get it right now because i'm pretty sure that i won't be listening to it much until fall rolls around.

You need to get it ASAP. It goes in a slightly different direction than their previous albums, there's almost sort of an ambient vibe in a few songs, but it's absolutely fantastic.

Eh. While I do enjoy Cat Power, I can't take too much of her at once.

Have heard many good things about that band. Streamed a couple songs up on Grooveshark and they definitely tickle my fancy.

And I have "You Are My Home" by Rivulets and absolutely love it. So it sounds like I must get Debridement now.

S is bloody fantastic. I love love love her latest album. Like S just as much as Carissa's Wierd.

I have listened to it. Not exactly the greatest stuff, but still rather enjoyable.

low are probably the only band that fall under the title that i listen to pretty consistently. saw them a few weeks ago! it was lovely.

i've been listening to duster a lot recently. probably worth a look for anyone who hasn't listened to them before.

never really understood why s and carissa's wierd are thought of so highly...

Have you sat down and listened to Songs About Leaving all the way through? If you haven't I'd suggest trying it. If you have, it's cool. Different strokes and all that jazz.

Just found out there's a chance I might be moving up to Duluth in the fall, so the chances of me seeing Low live have basically skyrocketed.

Songs About Leaving appreciation post number five jillion.

I don't listen to much slowcore, but Carissa's Wierd is a wonderful, wonderful band.
