oof ouch my individuality complex! Anonymous 17522

post your niche music interests.

mine centers around sewersvt and breakcore/animecore. unfortunately the zoomers on tiktok are getting ahold of her, but its better than some other bands' fates.

do your niche music give you a sense of superiority?
what do you like most about the music you listen to?
do you share your music with friends? participate in any online communities around the artist/genre?
when/for what mood do you listen to your artist?
how did you discover them?

thanks OP, i needed this

>do your niche music give you a sense of superiority?

it's complicated. sometimes it does because ChAlLenGInG and TrANsGresSiVe but sometimes i realize what the fuck is going on and cringe. i also cringe very often because i don't know everything about power electronics/death industrial (i am aware that knowing every single thing about anything is impossible but i still want to)

>what do you like most about the music you listen to?

1. it can be genuinely creepy and disturbing. it's probably the tcc plague speaking in me, but the records and tracks that are dedicated to real life murderers are the most upsetting. bonus points if news recordings/interviews are used.
2. the soundscapes and the atmosphere. more applicable to death industrial than to power electronics but PE can be quite atmospheric too.
3. pinkpill potential once you realize that the primal violence/rapist calls in some tracks/artists is every single moid's desire.

>do you share your music with friends? participate in any online communities around the artist/genre?

1. yes, although my friends don't like it that much/don't care
2. yes i do, i also try to find and connect with people interested in PE on every platform i go but it's kinda futile (i can't stop though). sometimes i cringe at myself for trying to insert power electronics stuff into every conversation i have. when i meet new people i don't give any fucks about their name, the first question i ask them is what do they listen to.

>when/for what mood do you listen to your artist?

it depends.
when i want to listen to something new i just search for an album and listen to it "actively" (that means not doing anything in the moment besides listening to music).
when i'm walking down the street or grocery shopping i turn on my playlist of the songs i like the most. i don't go outside without my headphones (i tried to but it sucked and it made me much more anxious overall).
when i want to chill/calm down i either turn on songs that are in the emotion i feel right now (to experience it more intensely but privately, that way it'll pass sooner) or shit that straight up murders my ears so i feel physical pain

>how did you discover them?

it was a downward spiral from industrial rock that i used to listen to in middle school. i kept wallowing in industrial music and its subgenres and there i am now, listening to straight up earrape.

Are twee and C86 (jangle pop) considered obscure? Those are the main genres I'm interested in and I feel like they used to be bigger but barely anyone cares anymore. There used to be a lot of niche blogspots and other fansites devoted to these genres but they've all died since the early 2010s.

Some more niche genres I like are Zolo, Dunedin Sound, and early 1990s Sunshine Pop revival.

>do your niche music give you a sense of superiority?

In a way I feel like my taste does make me feel superior because I enjoy the feeling of finding a treasure that few people know about. Especially when I finally locate music files that have been difficult to track down.

>what do you like most about the music you listen to? when/for what mood do you listen to your artist?

I like those genres because they sound happy and give me daydreams of a happier life. I listen to those genres when I just want to relax.

>do you share your music with friends? participate in any online communities around the artist/genre?

My friends don't care about music and listen to whatever's on the radio. The only online community I share music with is Tumblr

>how did you discover them?

I used to download music from those file-sharing blogspots and I accidentally came across a blog for sharing music from those genres. After that I used last.fm and rateyourmusic to explore further.

I feel you about the pinkpill thing. So much music is horrifyingly sexist and I don't think people recognize it as much as in other types of art.

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.

>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

I get made fun of for bringing up niche songs.

this is how i found some of my alltime fav songs. it really is tiring, but worth it if you commit. i didnt know one could search by genre though, so i should try that.

Anonymous 17564

>>17556
why and where? if the community you're sharing the songs with is about the same genre/etc they kinda shouldn't unless they have no clue what the fuck they're talking about

>>17545

based choice, fuck spotify mostly for not having a lot of my fav artists

>>17536
>So much music is horrifyingly sexist
funny enough the music genres who try to hide it are the worst in terms of ACTUAL sexual harassment/assaults/rape, kinda like the moids who are claiming to be "nice". i guess it's because (almost) everything is ran by moids anyway and in popular genres moreso, producers, huge labels and such

Link related is another band I like right now. Also, big band jazz like the music of Duke Ellington, Maria Schneider, Anat Cohen.

>do your niche music give you a sense of superiority?
Not as much as I used to now that vaporwave has been blown out of proprtion. I can take pride in the fact that I was there when the genre was gaining traction on tumblr.

>what do you like most about the music you listen to?

I find the music to be very evocative, some elements would bring back fond memories, the feeling of being disoriented coupled with the general sense of dejà entendu at times also has its charm.

>do you share your music with friends? >participate in any online communities around the artist/genre?

I usually share less obscure music with my friends, it's definitely not for everyone.
I sometimes visit the related reddit but combing through the posts is a bit of a hassle.

>when/for what mood do you listen to your artist?

Whenever I'm going for a lengthy coding session or working on a digital illustration.

>how did you discover them?

I remember coming across death's dynamic shroud 3 years ago, I was looking at the cover design they picked for I'll Try Living Like This and to me it felt like stopping at the threshold of a bad dream and looking over your shoulder one last time.
I didn't think much of it during the first attempts at grasping what was going on but when I eventually realised that a lot of musical elements were taken from AOA and even Nina Sky, it logically became my favourite release from the genre.

>breakcore
God anon you threw me back into like 2009 when my then-boyfriend introduced me to that. Just looked up Nero's Day at Disneyland and realized the person who made it is a troon, who would have thought.

That seems to be a common trend among people who make breakcore, a lot of them are trans

i wonder why? i know sewerslvt is, and shes one of the bigger artists… is there some connection you think? or do they just gather around the community because other troons are there?
