One type of music I like that people think is strange is odd electronic stuff that is quite dissociative.
I do not interact in communities that much and prefer just chatting with anons about what music I like beccause communities are usually filled with standard /mu/fags that really do not know much about music in my experience so no point lurking them unless I want to see what the newest stuff is but last FM is good for finding obscure stuff anyway.
Listening to this at the moment while reading manga.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euHoHdpGOa0
>do your niche music give you a sense of superiority?
Not really I can objectively complain about a lot of music that is popular but love more well known indie girly sad stuff like folk although I feel anything with more than 20k listeners a month on spotify is "popular" in my mind BUT I do not dislike stuff that has a lot of listeners at all that is retarded.>what do you like most about the music you listen to?
Well usually I just listen to sad stuff but grouper is sad and disso like I enjoy how my music can make me relaxed and also shut my mind off from compulsive thoughts a bit.
I like how slow my music is and just everything about it really sorry for the retard answer.
I like how creative some of the stuff I listen to is but realize I listen to musio n my own as I am a shut in so know when with others you would not play al ot of my music as it is harder to enjoy without some good headphones.>do you share your music with friends? participate in any online communities around the artist/genre?
I have no friends online or offline but share with random people I actually LOVE to share music and in the generas I love I have become the guru now I guess because I very rarely hear anything I do not already know and help others find tons of amazing music.
I try to share msic with family in the past but they like shit music played out of their phone so do not bother anymore.I mentioned above I use communities but never expect anything of worth from them one on one conversations are best for finding music and sharing.>when/for what mood do you listen to your artist?
Nearly all my music is sad music and I am always sad or apathetic but sometimes I get a feel for some certain types of music and I cannot quantify why I play what I play.
If I am in a certain mood with energy I just switch to post hardcore and screamo..>how did you discover them?
I started out with waht I knew and some anons shared more then I began a journey searching youtube and exhausted that and then I moved onto spotify and exhausted that I think that the algorithms for youtube and spotify are not good for the hidden gems.
The best way to find music is from talking to anons and then also just searching lastFM of your genera and literally starting from the back of the list and playing literally everything but this is tiresome and can take a long time but worth it when you find some music that just no one seems to have discovered yet and then you can share it.
All I do is play music and lay in bed hoping to cry god I hate myself
