Oi Keenan, leave the making of silly genre names in order to create hype to the NME. New Weird America was bad enough, but Hypnagogic Pop? You can oeenan that one up your arse along with your overpriced CDRs that you sell. NeunameMonday, 20 July Hurting 2Monday, 20 July Does that bother you more than the fact that the tag for the Madlib article is ‘Patrolling yesterday’s universe with the Beat Konducta’?
The last time i got this annoyed by the keeban was when they used Vladislav Delay instead of Luomo which I figured is because Luomo is a more famous handle.
Also, genre that starts by trying to shoehorn Emeralds into the same tag as Pocahaunted is starting out pretty shakily. Like this stuff has a pretty small yet inconsistent remit, it’s not specific nor is it a wide umbrella term. I like Pocahaunted and Emeralds but this making up of a genre name is just stupid. Emeralds are awesome, Pocahaunted suck.
There are way more bands both of these bands sound like other than each other. I can’t help thinking that the phrase ‘hypnagogic pop’ yypnagogic be a better description of MBV etc than it is of Pocahaunted et al. And if it fits to any act these days, I reckon it’d be Grouper. WeingartenMonday, 20 July Until I read the full article I won’t know for sure, but there may be a connection of some kind with the Hypnagogue EP by former Keenan faves Current I used hypnagogic pop in a review last week.
Granted it was with scarequotes you could see from space but it still felt gooooooooood.
Worst “genre” created by a journalist part : ‘Hypnagogic Pop’ by David Keenan.
So could things be retroactively tagged as “hypnagogic pop”? What would or would not make something like Spiritualized’s “Electric Mainline” hypnagogic pop? At a guess tho MBV have had a trickle-down influence on bands from this sphere, maybe filtered through Flying Saucer Attack hypnavogic that lot.
Also, wondering what the ratio was of “new weird america” being used sincerely vs.
I’m the kind of guy who needs an artisan cheesemonger, hypagogic antiquarian book store and a speciality off-license at the bottom of my street before I can even start to feel comfortable.
I think the citations of individual works that had influence on the sound of these artists are interesting: I also love the non-musical ingluences that James Ferraro and Spencer Clark list: The Wire are falling asleep with all this hypnagogic pop; they should wake up and get into some hypnopompic pop. Really though, only Ferraro’s solo work, Dolphins and Ducktails I can see fitting the Hypnastoopid Pop glove, the rest is vastly different from eachother Still look at it in train stations but it often stays at the station.
Look for it in train stations, have a rapid scan through Invisible Jukebox, put it back on the shelf Look for it in fancy bookstores, have a rapid scan through Invisible Jukebox, put it back on the shelf William Basinski in the new one, btw. Interested to read it. Going to buy the book shortly too. I believe it has Haino in it? Have to davidd that I do quite enjoy the Hello-ish full page photos of mopey-looking musicians in their scuzzy domiciles. I saw them play about a week ago and they had a song that sounded like Def Leppard, I could get with it.
I think there is something in this. I’ve been listening to a lot of Gary War, Emeralds, Rangers, Oneohtrix recently and I can see some relation, although no justification for a hypnagoglc to be created – a lot of the stuff on the Olde English Spelling Bee label sounds similar. As an Englishman of a certain age it is evocative of ET era Spielberg films, of an America I’m not sure ever existed but created by a weird juxtaposition of watching Happy Days in northern England in the s.
A lot of these bands also seem to be trying to recreate Loveless as cheaply as possible. Liking Forest Swords too – this guy seems to be from near where I grew up, near Liverpool, and is adding Burial to the keenzn.
Creating a such-and-such that seemed to exist but never did is always a good plan to me. I love the comments btw http: Worst “genre” created by a journalist part Marcello to thread to slag off 18 Wheeler. I was wondering why this term had suddenly appeared on Twitter. Can you explain this term to kenan At least hypnagogic pop as a genre name is not as bad Pocahaunted is as a name for a band.

By David Keenan Since I cant scan the article. Skipping messages at this point Click here if hypnagoglc want to load them all. Or, for that matter, “Soon”? HPs tend to last longer than Epsons, imo. I allowed for that by only doing it gently in a jokey way.
I was only asking to make another computer brand joke, tbh.
Every genre is ‘questionable’. Not enough avant-gardists glowering at manky old teapots.

The Wire would be vastly improved if they printed more letters to the editor. That’s a good point I think. They should def print Tom D’s letters: I don’t write any anymore! Because I don’t buy it often enough to get annoyed enough to write a letter! Ariel Pink I spose? I am fighting off an infection and hope I po; get gangrene or something equally amputate-able.
