the youths love shoegaze. I saw Slowdive and I swear that crowd was 90% under 18. no complaints here, as I love the genre

I'm going to try to do my part to make millennials the first generation that doesn't just shit on younger people and go "the kids today just ain't right!"

I don't know what "zoomergaze" is, but I will say that Zoomers have better fashion sense than millennials and that I'm glad the twee aesthetic is dead.

twee>shoegaze. most of the great shoegaazers went to twee eventually (starflyer, mojave 3, ride, hell even the pumpkins kinda). it's more fulfilling. the kids just love the guitar effects again.

yes my experience since working in a "music city" is that shoegaze and metal are dominate among the youth

"Wall of sound" is the only sound

everything is either very understated, ambient music with guitars, or completely fucking ridiculous (see: all of metal)

I love walls of sound. Don't give me a waist-high hedge of sound. What are we, in the suburbs? Go big or go home.

If you're going to go quiet, then do that to the extreme, too. Do some Mazzy Star or Low shit where people have to move in closer because they can barely hear you sobbing into the microphone. If you're going to go small, do it in the biggest, most exaggerated way possible. Give me THE BIGGEST SILENCE EVER.

Who the fuck could possibly think Gen Z has better fashion sense than millennials? You like straight parts and clown jeans and bull rings in your nose?

It's more that I dislike finger tattoos of handlebar mustaches and when people dress like a cast member of Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist or Little Miss Sunshine and stuff. Oh, and when people look like they're about to ask me whether I'm a Gryffindor or a Hufflepuff.

I have not entirely made peace with low-rise jeans making a comeback, but the other elements of fashion are fine.

We shall fight them on the beaches, and on the landing grounds, in the Walmarts and in hipster hangouts. We will never surrender.

Those kids are appropriating shoegaze for aesthetic value, the offset guitars, getting all nerdy on pedals but the funny thing is that they never manage to get it right

All they end up with is, if they're lucky, average, run-of-the-mill dream pop riffs that go nowhere

It really sucks because the jazzmaster is prob the best fender. I avoided getting one for so long because of the image but I love mine so much. I refuse to use the trem tho

Nothing best about Fender offsets, really, they're weird, unreliable instruments but they're lot of fun

And if you're His Majesty the Kev you can make that quirkiness work in your favour. Too bad there's no 'new Kevs' on sight
