i cant. are foals generally thought to be good round here?
i could give you 4056 better options if you're looking to get into the genre.
i'll take 3 examples if you're game.
(ps the album just got to the end of "heavy water" which was shit hot)
a horrible term, yet quite an appropriate term for them. They do nothing wrong and write ok songs, but they're just not as interesting as some people would like to have you think.
I can't even tell if this is a serious thread or not, evertime I see "Foals" in a thread title, it makes me unsure.
"indie" genre has a higher rate than others, just behind "electronic" music, because it is too democratic and encourages "fun".
Brian Eno could be considered 'electronic''...and that's all about the atmosphere
1. anyone with a computer can do it
2. for free
3. the music itself it often involves mindless repetition
4. it is often "designed" for "da clubs"
5. you have to be a bedroom bound nerd to be any good at it
It seems to have been unfairly attributed to indie music, when in reality it's all music.
seems to be circularly defined as the music that indie fans listen to, but is pretty eclectic really, and that is completely sidesteping mainstream indie, it is a bit of a mess, someone needs to come up with a better term for indie in the sense that people here use it
on the DiS spotify playlist. 95 per cent of it was absolutely awful.
I really don't know actually. Could someone look at my music taste and tell me? Please.
^ this is an honest request
what does it matter
It doesn't matter no, I'm just curious. I'm rubbish with genres and describing music in general.
is because they can visualise themselves there, playing basic chords shittily and emoting about some pointless worthlessness. Why would you want to listen to a genre of music that is filled with smug soulless cunts and overemoting pussies? Ok you might want that, but you can get the former with more attitude and soul from punk/rock and the latter with more talent from soul, jazz, rock, anything else. And probably with more powerful emoting
Indie is a dead form, for cunts who don't actually want music. They want a facsimile of music played by a facsimile of themselves
i dont come from a position of disliking it
