    Music festivals

    A thread for going "" at line-ups that get released over the next few months.

    Don't think anything is going to top this this year:

    It really is great. It's a shame that the rumours for Glastonbury would make it embarrassing compared with this. May have to change festivals from next year.

    We already have a trip to Barcelona planned for later this year, or I'd have been buying tickets at the first rumours of LCD Soundsystem headlining. I really don't think of myself as festival-goer but that complete lineup is outrageously good.

    The first name on that lineup poster is good reason to read no further. Possibly even good reason to firebomb the event itself.

    I don't think I've ever even heard an LCD Soundsystem song. What sort of music is it?

    I've seen them described as "Dance-punk" which seems as accurate as anything else I can think of.

    Glastonbury's always going to be good, though. Even if the pyramid is wank, there'll be a good headliner elsewhere. And if not then you get to get into the late night areas without having to queue for three hours.

    They're up there with the biggest names on the line up at the least, so it's hard to argue against given it's a reunion tour.

    It's not in a field, and there's no camping, so it's probably ideal. The layout & location of the site is absolutely spot on for what it is.

    What a random assortment of quite dull, ambient, wailing, singer songwritery stuff and then Pusha T.

    Weird lineup.

    Venom half way down the page is a weirder one. John Carpenter as well.

    Probably at least 20 acts on there I'd pay to go see if they were in town. Going to be some horrific clashes.

    Radiohead = quite dull
    LCD sound system = wailing
    Sigur Ros = the definition of quite dull, ambient, wailers
    PJ Harvey = the definition of singer songwriter type

    I haven't heard of the rest of them.

    I took it to be a single description, which might have worked for Beach House to be fair.

    To be fair to you, I was mainly just trying to slag off Sigur Ros and had to add Singer/Songwriter to apply to the rest of them.

    New Yawk 'No Wave' in the same vein as Liquid Liquid, et al. The club side of post-punk basically.

    Good line up to be fair.

    Think I'll be doing more math-rock at ArcTanGent and then any festival that the reformed At The Drive-In show up at. Will be missing 2000 Trees this year due to work, at least for the Thursday/Friday, still tempted to go to the Saturday on a day ticket since it's only an hour or so up the road.

    Man am I glad I only listen to hip-hop these days. I remember those arguments.

    As if someone who hasn't heard any LCD Soundsystem knows what the hell any of those genres are.

    God, Merse you are a music bore with terms like that.

    They do a bit of dance, a bit of indie and a bit of pop.

    Math rock is a very accepted term.

    You might well do, I was very into No Wave as a result of being brought up on Punk and New Wave, well before I had listened to LCD Soundsytem, it's a 70/80's genre that informed the Indie Dance craze LCD loosely fitted into (Radio 4, Rapture, etc).

    Cowbell, electro, jaggy guitars.

    The Muso description might be Franz Ferdinand met New Order at the Discoteque and bopped around to Radio 4. How's that?

    I don't think I've gone OTT there, it's a music thread and they're the kind of terms any half-serious music literature/blog etc would use?

    Math Rock being particularly un-boresome since it really represents umpteen 'sub genres' like Drone, Post-Punk, Post-Hardcore, Grind, Post-Rock, Electronica and so on...

    Do you like Colour, @The Merse? They were a little band with really catchy math rock stuff, there's an anthology of their EPs.

    Yeah, they're pretty good fun, though I can't say I listen to them with any frequency. A bit Foals-lite to me, which isn't a bad thing at all.

    Post-Rock

    Do fuck off.

    Is everyone from Chuck Berry onwards in the Post-Rock genre?

    You probably just don't read much music stuff outside of hip-hop, phonics.

    Post-rock is one of the few genre terms on this page I properly understand. Even hip hop seems to have incredibly blurred lines with other genres.

    I did my years of music snobbery, I'm aware of what all those sub genres are but that doesn't mean they aren't for complete wankers.

    Yeah in the early to mid 00's The Seans (Puffy and Jay-Z) and the gang basically blended RnB into Hip-Hop and that into Pop and now we're there for the rest of time.

    There's loads of sub genres in Hip-Hop (Nerdcore, Boom Bap, Backpack etc.), just no-one but dickheads use them.

    It's mostly used for bands set up like a traditional rock band - with guitars and drums basically - but who play instrumental stuff, like Mogwai, Godpeeed You! Black Emperor and Explosions in the Sky.

    Is that not instrumental then? Or even instrumental rock?

    You can call it those if you like yeah. It's a pretty distinctive style though, I think if you've listened to any of those bands you'll immediately know what people mean when they say post rock.

    Call it fuckmuffins 3000 for all the difference it makes. As long as everybody is referring to the same thing when they use it, it's just a working term.

    So what you're saying is, it's not really accurate and mainly for dickheads to make themselves sound like they have more knowledge. Cheers.

    Merse may argue but, yeah, I don't see any reason to get hung up on the "post" part by taking it too literally. The term works though so people who get pissy about it are far worse than those who use it.

    Instrumental rock:



    Post-rock:




    There are some wanky labels for music out there (though they're obviously formulated for a reason), but I'm not sure post-rock is one of them

    Agree that post-rock and others are pretty acceptable. It was particularly 'New Yawk 'No Wave' ' that made me lol about the bollocks.

    Reg told me that clearly I don't read enough for laughing at a shit term. Hence why getting pissy about it is worthwhile.

    It wasn't all that big a jump after you said "I only listen to hip hop". No need to chimp out for half a page.
