You know what the hipster thing around here is now? Dub music and Dubstep. Is this a problem for any of you? I'm glad they didn't get to post-rock yet.

And for some reason people keep talking to me about MGMT, Crystal Castles, and Vampire
Weekend. I'm starting to be afraid that I'm looking like a hipster.

I drunk grape Kool-Aid in boxer shorts and listened to Oh, Apollo!

Guess I'm not cool enough for this thread.


Cool enough I suppose.. this morning, I drank $.50 cola and listened to Tigers Jaw

It could be worse. Everyone in my area listens to Taylor Swift.


I actually enjoy Taylor Swift. She has a pretty good voice, and good pop songwriting skills.

I want proof she actualy writes her own songs, before you say she has "good songwriting skills"

And pop songs are NOT difficult to write. Follow Pachelbel's Canon, and you're basically guaranteed a theoretical Top 40 hit.

I could write a great pop song in literally 2 minutes if I had a major studio behind me covering the mistakes in my voice and making the music for me.
I'm an asshole.

I regularly sell people the rights to songs I wrote in 10-15 minutes all the time.

We must be like half a year ahead of you, cos dubstep was the thing before this year. It isn't like they're ruining post-rock or anything, but it is weird when they're talking about the basic bands as if they've been listening to them forever (idk, explosions, sigur ros, mogwai, etc.) . As for that other genre, it depends on where I am. At home, people tend to like vampire weekend and mgmt because they're popular and catchy. Since there are so many people at uni, it is hard to put clear lines on it. There is a big cycle of, "I've been listening to MGMT since they were called the Management," "this band is so catchy," "this band is weird now," and, "They released the next album and people finally realized that the band isn't just weird, they're fucked up.."

I'll be honest, I like (that one MGMT song that is a single (the one that was in FIFA 09)). Would I go to see them? No. Actually, MGMT came here sometime within last year and that is when I heard that whole cycle of comments.

On a tangent: people get so mad about other people liking their music. I can maybe see about it affecting shows--I know I get pissed when a bunch of drunk frat boys are moshing during every song--but it isn't that huge of a deal. If the band is 'that' good live, I'll deal with the assholes and see them.

I want proof that Lady GaGa writes her own songs.

Well, that proof doesn't exist and never will exist..

That whole niche of girls singing pop songs has many musicians who can actually play guitar and piano, which means that they can write their own songs. Do they write every song? Probably not, they're pop stars and their labels tell them what to do, but that doesn't mean they cannot write.

I have to say I agree, but around here (Chicagoland Area) , hipsters tend to like to take genres and start to populate them with crappy bands they start. Like by just scratching the surface of a genre and doing absolutely nothing differently. So I fear when they start to like genres I like.

The proof DOES actually exist. She's been a songwriter for years. She's one of the only pop stars out there who writes her own stuff.

I'm pretty sure Taylor Swift was a songwriter for other people before getting signed. And if it's so easy to write a top 40 hit, why haven't you? It'd be an easy way to get your name out, make lots of money, and then focus on what you really love to do. (not really directed at anyone, just throwing it out there)

It is a snide comment against lookpizza. The same thing can be applied to Swift...

The hip things to listen to here at the moment are Dubstep and Grime, which is a shame as I like Grime.

You need to play some hipster deterrent at them. Works like a charm.

You obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Even if I was the best songwriter for top 40 in the world, I'd still need the right connections, the right artist to sing my songs, etc, etc. It's easy to write the song, but the process is monotonous and easy to falter whilst going through.

And it's obvious it was directed at me, seeing as I'm the only one who said anything about it.

As I said earlier, I make a couple of bucks here and there by writing songs for people. Maybe, eventually, I'll write for someone who has big connections.

This is the most ignorant comment I've seen in a while. Besides what Nash said, you're assuming that he, or anyone for that matter, WANTS to write a top 40 song. Almost everything I hear on the radio (excluding Regina Spektor, Foo Fighters and Lady Gaga) is lacking in soul. Why would someone want to help that grow more prevailant?

And I'm extremely sorry if I'm coming off as a butthurt hippie here, it's just how I feel.

ok, curious question, what is up with the whole "post-hardcore" thing? How is it that this music now is "post-hardcore", yet it is nothing like post-hardcore? I only come up with the conclusion that it is post-post-hardcore, post-"new hardcore", or post-pop-punk, all of which are silly because it is just music, anyway. But Why am I posting if I don't care that much? Well, I'm curious on your take of it. How do you guys feel when somebody is talking about it and their name drop is Emarosa?

It makes me feel strange, to be honest.

Yeah it's weird because post hardcore sounds nothing like post hardcore. There's some genres that have been "bastardized" that sound sort of like the genres they **** up, but not post hardcore. Like hardcore. I can see how hardcore came from hardcore, even though it's not much like hardcore anymore. It's like the people that started calling post hardcore bands post hardcore had never heard of post hardcore.

People name it that because it's rock with screaming. Screaming=Hardcore, and "post" means that it "came after", or in this case, "is inspired by." In short: folks is stupid.

I usually get that as Screaming=Screamo. Apparently "like Slipknot" is screamo? Obviously this isn't the case, but still... I usually just let those people be, but it is still weird to hear.

Really? You've never heard anyone call Slipknot screamo? I hear it really often (or, used to, rather).

No, I mean it obviously isn't the case that Slipknot is screamo. read my post closer . I'm not sure how much I'll stick around PP&E, but you'll have to get used to my posting style if I do

Ah, I thought you meant "obviously this isn't the case" as in "obviously someone would never think that."

Then how about calling this screamo?

Yay, I finally made a legitimate segue to justify posting that in PP&E.

There are some bands that can't really go under anything else. That's how I justify it. For example, Pianos Become the Teeth - they fit under screamo. You could say "hardcore/emo with post rock elements" but that just sounds kinda douchey.
#115
Not as douchey as calling it "Screamo. No. No. No. I mean REAL screamo.
