serialism is like a hundred years old

Yeah well serialism is getting on for 100 years old so I'm assuming they're recycling genre names in both cases. (hah, xpost)

Spotify's 'The Sound of Vintage Swoon' playlist is like 80% culled from a compilation series entitled 'Rare rock and roll tracks of the 50s and 60s'.

The first sentence should be "Not entirely convinced that Glenn Mcdonald didn't just make half of these up, but here we go.".

Jumpstyle still rules

Chaotic black metal, distinguishable from your more orderly, sensible black metal

I'm all for serialism being the sound of 2018.

How does chillhop differ from triphop?

Jumpstyle easy

Wonder what's going on in the world of jumpstyle these days

brimstead, Thursday, 21 December 2017 00:56 (six months ago) Permalink

Chillhop probably uses trap beats

brimstead, Thursday, 21 December 2017 00:56 (six months ago) Permalink

Man I hate instrumental trap to such an irrational extent

I am interested in your future funk and would like to subscribe to your newsletter

similarly, we need "melodic power metal" to differentiate it from the better-known atonal power metal.

D-40 started a great ILM thread on future funk... only to be met by the usual jaded moaning

I'm surprused 'fluxwork' hasnt made the cut

Vintage Swoon.

No wait judging by their playlists when they talk about Serialism they do actually mean Stockhausen and Boulez.

It warms the heart to see Jute Gyte on a playlist with 400 followers.

Simon H., Thursday, 21 December 2017 14:11 (six months ago) Permalink

2018 will be annus mirabilis for 'cryptic black metal'
