I guess I must be late to the pigeonhole, but this is pretty much the worst genre name since the beginning of music, right?


EDIT: some of it sounds quite good though

yeah all genre names are garbage.

its just that some have survived longer than others, and every once in awhile a new one surfaces.

thinking about it if someone came up with "heavy metal" now I'd probably laugh at them

but i do like that witch house is also known as "haunted house"

witch house is not a genre. witch house is an undanceable bullshit musical fad started by white suburban stnuc, who just ripped off skweee sounds from the swedes/norwegians, and threw it together with chopped and screwed from early 90s hip-hop culture.

you know how i can tell it's not legit, and won't last? because half the twats who make it have unpronouneable, ungoogleable names with triangles, crosses, and other stupid stuff in them to distract from the fact that really, their music is just a bunch of shite.

I'm assuming he was stating that they are white suburban AND stnuc. The three aren't inextricably linked. Salem are a bunch of tool though, it's the fact that they are so obviously suburban white hipsters who pretend they go to footwork clubs and the first record they listened to was DJ Nate. Bullshit. My first record was Mr Blobby or something.

DJ Nate is 20 years old and is not really apart of the footwork scene in Chicago.

Some Witch House music is sick though, check out oOoOO, Dream Boat, Balam Acab, and Holy Other (who's remixed Mosca before :h: ).

Yeah the whole unpronouncable name thing gets a bit tiring after a bit, especially when you're trying to talk to someone about which artists youre liking.

I came across this sick track the other day in a mix and now i'll never find it again due to it being called $///|||\\&8) or something

hypnagogic pop, coined by david keenan is still the worst for me...witch house is equally bad though... so is "idm", which is pretensious by itself since it states that if dance music isn't categorizable in that glitch + breaks combo it's not intelligent... ahaha

most so called "witch house" stuff in unintersting and not very imaginitive anyway so i don't care about it that much...

I knew it wouldn't be long till all the narrow minded people from the main board would end up in the house forum with their narrow minded opinions.

being vocal about an opinion doesn't make someone narrow minded.

i've listened to a fair sampling of the shit. i don't mind some of it, and i can say that salem's album wasn't terrible. but that doesn't make it good or original. it's a veyr appropriate musical style for the current culture/scene. recycling old shit that someone did before you and trying to claim that it's new.

everyone recycles to a certain extent, but this is just a whole other level or artistic parasitism.

right on.

music sadly tends to work in cycles so yeah , they recycle a lot of stuff indeed,also lot of this ahs been around since 70s...kosmic german rock...late 80s ambient with darker conotations such as lustmord, it even scratches on eno's work in mid 70s..shoegaze,pop...
but to me what i find unapealing is the whole basic aesthetic,vague contents, it doesn't add up to their whole panoply of influences,some times it's just like a cheap mix of copies. i was listening to the xlr8r podcast by salem and it was just agonalizingly to hear, i mean music must not be technically proficient all the time, (by the contrary, look at noise,it surpasses every aesthethic, and 90% is just lashing out on buttons and power electronics, but still a good listen) but as far as the witch house groups and artists, that super slowed down tempo, and cheap drones + casio chords & badly processed vocals and snares,doesn't get to me at all...at least most acts..there are still some that i found out to be ok...

I dont think its hate, its merely opinion. :4:

But remember this is a music forum, its regulation to have 5 pages of debate over genre names at least 3 times a year!
