Title: Am I getting old?
Post by: Sleef on January 02, 2011, 08:22:53 AM
Or is today's "indie" music decidedly boring?

Not to poo poo Radiohead too much but I always found them pretty boring and now there's a new generation of artists inspired by them to make this moody, atmospheric bullshit that doesn't go anywhere.

Do this song qualify as moody and atmospheric?
Tame Impala - Flow (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D5zYw4rAq1U#)

When I first read the title of this thread I thought it was going to be about troubled knees and bad ankles.  I agree though my friend listens to that music and it is incredibly boring.

Not the same genre, but the bane of this holiday season:

I guess the more bored and confused you look, the more artistic integrity you must have.

I listen to some of these from time to time like post rock and post punk sometimes but i dont dig the people who are way into this stuff.
The "I am into art and i am better than you" type of people. Douchebags!

I am 22 years old and i prefer listening to hardcore punk and garage stuff from 70s and 80s (and the scene here where i leave is awesome.). No man you are not old you just have different taste.  Dont feel bad about not feeling the mainstream.

I'll tell you what doesn't help.  OFF! is the new Keith Morris band (Along with some other credible peeps whom I can't recall off the top of my head.) and it's fucking amazing.

It's like old people going to the casino to see the Fogerty-less CCR.  This shit shreds but it's the same guy I've been listening to for years.
