What music styles wouldn't dissensus/music nerds touch with a shitty stick - are these styles irredeemable, are there good things about them, what is their fatal flaw or set of flaws, will what is uncredible change in the future and is that change as much a source of innovation as "futurism"?

The singer-songwriter thing, like Lewis Capaldi. The stuff people were on about in the Kate Tempest thread. X-Factor ballads. The fatal flaw is its bland, straining earnestness.

Didn't really occur to me to think of those ppl. Was more thinking of tech house, psy trance, Swedish house Mafia. But yes by all means, singer songwriters. Awful.

Me and third go psytrance parties together pretty regularly. Don't even take drugs. Just get a real clean contact high.

one absence that's always interested me is blues and related music. idk who it was who said (to unanimous in-thread agreement) that the best rock music is as far removed from the blues as possible. i think barty posted a joseph spence link once but in general it's never more than passingly mentioned.

the original american stuff (20s-50s mostly) can be great in my opinion. but in its modern form it's mostly a domain of fedora and bow tie wearing white people and that's obviously going to repel people here. maybe if we had anyone old enough to remember when blues was genuinely cool it would be different.

i do think it could still be a source of innovation though because the whole "country time" approach to playing guitar you get in early recordings is so different from anything now.

Matthew ingrams gets really angry with me every time I reject something for being too bluesy.

All that chugging sixties rock. Gross. Bluesy Brit rock for real ale drinkers.

Like Corpsey i can't understand the tolerance you people have for RA/FACT music that's all cancelled to me. Totally pointless landfill music.

maybe if you were born 30 years earlier in the UK you'd feel differently about blues. different associations.

maybe there's a 10 year old future luka who's disgusted by chicago house and detroit techno because they associate it with RA/FACT.

Mvuent said he was disgusted by house and techno already that's why I said understandable
