DO NOT BELIEVE THIS MAN'S LIE!
Statist shill spreading FUD!

HODL!!


Hitting the Bandcamp new releases pile hard, and amused how much I'm seeing the "neofolk" tag on records that are not from this sphere in any manner whatsoever. They seem to think it means "folky but, uh, hipper". I wonder when anyone will tell them. Or if they'll give a poo poo. c.f. this (actually a metal singer going country) or this (which manages to have the tags "neofolk" and "trip hop" on the same record). Perhaps we could just tag everything "witch house".

that second one actually sounds halfway decent so i agree it probably doesn't deserve to be smeared as "neofolk" right off the bat, but maybe if you read the lyrics it turns out they're nazis

yeah some people just assume it means modern folk, I remember seeing someone going into hysterics at some point because they called their work neofolk independently of actual neofolk, and then someone told them about all the nazis.

I blame King Dude. I think you can blame King Dude for most things in this world though.

I've never listened to King Dude just because the name is really bad and offputting.

the only comment:

quote:

Germany is in a special state as far as the true state of Deutschland.
This album has a dismal sound to me.
I feel a connection between my opinions.

So I went to write this evening's Rocknerd post and called a lot of people Nazis. I'm sure this will make me even more friends. I did tell everyone to buy Death In Rome's album, though.

I think if you write an article that contains the phrase "Throbbing Gristle’s career of blatant edgelordery," you should maybe not be writing about anything

congratulations on the really bad article where you said nothing of importance and called throbbing gristle edgelords.

It's the most vexed issue about this stuff and there's no point in pretending it isn't. This Karl Blake post is rather pissed off and strident on the topic, but you can't say he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Just been playing the new Disjecta Membra. They used to play with this lot a lot more, but have lately taken a pile of political positions stridently opposed, which is good.

I wouldn't bother if I didn't like the stuff.

Also, that Death In Rome shakycam has excellent sound and is worth playing at people and waiting for them to work out what it is.

No one's pretending it isn't? I think everyone here is well aware of the issue, but all your article did was basically regurgitate the issue in Though Catalog-esque language while not making any sort of point other than you like Death in Rome

There's been a lot of articles on the topic, yours is poorly written poo poo that says nothing they didn't already.
