No man. I just think most of the so called "hipster bands" that I've listened to have sucked ass. I mean, I guess i like a few bands that are big amongst the hipster crowds: Pavement, the first 2 Mgmt records, Tokyo Police club ETC.

For the most part a lot of these bands seem to be style over substance, in much the same way that the whole glam-metal trend was. I mean, you look at some of the most successful "hipster" bands and they're all shit. You got bands like: Foster the people, Mumford and sons, Vampire Weekend, The National, Imagine dragons all of that shit just bores me to absolute tears. No substance, no originality, I can't understand the whole craze. It seems to be just all about the image and aesthetics of it all.

The Devil you know is a damn good album. Their first one was great too. Granted, I will admit that the 3rd one sucked ass though and of course the lead singers taking the Bolly route and making his own shit music with hired hands now so that doesn't count.

MGMT LoL that's a band "hipsters" make fun of

who the fuck is tokyo police club

get your head out of your ass and judge the music for the music, you bring all this other garbage to the table

for example you just named a whole list of bands i really dislike, the national is boring, vampire weekend is dogshit, foster the people is a pathetic Arcade Fire clone, Imagine fucking Dragons is a mainstream major label band and Mumford & Sons is massively huge and profoundly loathed by the indie music crowd.

you still haven't mentioned any of the alt rock/shoegaze revival acts that i like but if i post a deerhunter song you'll just respond "bro that song is fucking terrible" like you do with everything because you have confirmation bias

ultimately you need to realize that the indie "scene" is not a genre, or an aestetic. it means these bands are obscure and are on small labels and ultimately cater to a niche. A lot of times they are doing wild and interesting stuff that the mainstream can't fucking handle (SWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNSSSSSSSSSSSS) . The bands you listed can be categorized in several genres, but you act like they're one and the same. Find your niche and fuck the shit out of it, and you can do better than moldy canadian alt rock. I managed to and I'm not doubling down on Vampire Weekend.

I honestly don't understand how a dude like you <i>doesn't</I> like Japandroids except for some kind of confirmation bias about the Hipster Menace. They are hard drinkin hard partying boys from Vancouver. That's it, there's no pretension to anything they do. They are good time, fun time, fuzz rock coming straight out of the 90s.

Well at least we can agree there. Those bands are really popular with who the culture would classify as "hipsters". They're some of the most popular bands that have broke through and they're all fucking terrible. Definitely style and aesthetics over substance.

I haven't really heard any alt rock/shoegaze revival hipster bands or anything though. I've heard a couple tracks from deerhunter, they weren't bad, but they didn't really make me wanna check out more of their stuff either.


ultimately you need to realize that the indie "scene" is not a genre, or an aestetic. it means these bands are obscure and are on small labels and ultimately cater to a niche.

Believe me man, I get that. I support as much good indie music as I can. I guess to me, it just seems like the term "hipster" is a blanket term that's used for a lot of shit bands (like the ones I suggested) that I end up not liking. I don't think hipster music has one concrete sound. For example, most of that shitty math-rock stuff is also hipster garbage.

I honestly don't understand how a dude like you doesn't like Japandroids except for some kind of confirmation bias about the Hipster Menace. They are hard drinkin hard partying boys from Vancouver. That's it, there's no pretension to anything they do. They are good time, fun time, fuzz rock coming straight out of the 90s.

I love the Japandroids man. Haven't checked out their debut album yet, but celebration rock is a damn good listen.

What the fuck is "hipster" music then if those examples are horrible? Those bands are the biggest, most successful bands out there that all of the trendy, hipster wankers like.

Most of the hipster shit that I've heard sounds like one big conglomeration of Vampire weekend, foster the people, or cheap Arcade Fire knockoffs(give or take a little). That's the kind of shit that I consider to be hipster music. The kind of music that attracts trendy assholes who don't really know anything about or have a genuine love for music.

Hipster can mean whatever you want it to mean.

fuzzy rose is using it here to put all of the music that he doesn't like in one neat pile. That being almost everything that was released after 2000, aside from the stuff that sounds like music before 2000. Especially if it features Mike Byrne.

lol well that's only natural isn't it? My biggest interest is in guitar driven music, and there hasn't really been a lot of standout, fresh guitar driven bands in the 2000's. Obviously theres some, but that type of music seemed to die out once the new millennium rolled around.

I mean, nowadays most of the "famous" bands are all weak and playing little jingles on their mandolins. Obviously you have to go the indie route to find guitar driven music, and I search high and low and theres not a lot of real "special" stuff out there anymore.

God damn, the jumping cut up shots in that video reminded me of a bad experience I had getting high once.

Great song though.

right, after listening to you for a while logically i have to ask what kind of rating all these bands should get

i mean as far as i'm concerned TJM is rated "a fun shoegaze band"

what is offensive to you about that

by the way i'm pretty sure "paying for accommodations" at these things unless they are in a metro area is "camping"

and i'd like to know what you consider a fortune.

Fun Fun Fun Fest is $195 at this point but it's pretty much worth it. i also like that it's in my home and there's no camping

I believe Pembertons 400 dollars for the 3 days if you wanna camp there. It's not too bad, but then you gotta factor in about 50 dollars for a bus ticket because its out in butt-fuck nowhere and all of the overpriced food and all of that shit and it adds up in a hurry... Then you consider the fact that if you wanna drink you're likely going to have to pay insane prices at the beer gardens. Still worth it because it's bound to be a helluva experience, but then you have to factor in getting time off work and all of that shit and it just becomes a hassle.

The cool thing about the all day fests like the Old Edgefest was that it was right in the heart of the city and it was only like 40 bucks a ticket. Much more convenient and easy to attend

Hey, come on now:p.

I kinda agree with you though. I thought that the Big Roar was a great listen but I was pretty disappointed with their follow up. I spun it a few times, gave it a chance to simmer and went back to it a few different times and it did nothing at all for me. Haven't listened to it since.

Actually, I still have Silent Treatment on my I-pod. Standout track in my opinion
