Next morning follow-up on Deafheaven post: of course I would screw up in a snarky post. Called Have A Nice Life by the name of their debut album Deathconsciousness by accident. I have this album and listen to it ((I SWEAR)), I just slipped up.
Follow-up on the Deafheaven post: I get some of the hate because I know what it’s like to love a certain type of music that your friends don’t want to bother with…then all of the sudden some band sorta co-opts the style and now everyone’s listening. I understand it can be annoying, but this is why ppl deeply interested in music can come across as assholes. This is an opportunity to finally spread that knowledge of yours and get your friends listening to the genre you love. I knew next to nothing about black metal before hearing about Deafheaven from some friends. When “Dream House” dropped, I felt I finally got the band and I became more interested in some of their influences, so I talked to my knowledgable friends about them and learned a lot.
