Just *wave genres in general. Vaporwave itself was dead by 2015 and now everyone just remembers it as a smaller part of a much bigger family of genres

It was still a prominent style, even if it was more about the aesthetic than the music.

Every reply itt is correct. Worst of all is the displacement of your run of the mill EDM infused pop music with nigger trap, at least the former had some semblance of musical worth. Call me a boomer (I’m literally a 20 yo zoomer) but the fact that songs like Running Up That Hill were once actually charting in billboard’s top 5 while 30 years later it’s inundated with nigger music is telling.


 No.100250

It was literally the same acts from the '00s, only older. Anyone who had a hit song/album in 2009 has a hit song/album in 2019. Apart from that lardass Ke$ha

the only good musicians this decade are daniel lopatin, dean blunt, tim hecker, and brave little abacus

Don't forget that shitty song she made about her sexual abuse, which brings to mind another trend of the decade: shitty Lorde/Adele wannabes and girls who could use a singing lesson from Tay Zonday because they can't stop breathing into the mic

Obviously soundcloud rappers, the new wave of trap music

I feel disgusted that rap is supposed to be a trend right now and that the only thing that was a trend in rock terms was the same shit as the 00's. Nothing was made with electronics that lasted much, "Dubstep" was shit and "EDM" also was. There were a few bits here and there that were a bit interesting (Andy Stott and Human Story 3) but that doesn't define a trend in this decade. Just pseuds being snowflakes as always.

We're living in times of creative bankruptcy


 No.100333

On what planet? Even rap is about where it was in the 2000s. Today's pop music can basically be described as a failed abortion between rock, hip hop, and *wave


 No.100337

>>100332

Certainly, rock is dead as a mainstream phenomenon.


 No.100352

>>100332

I actually respect rap as a genre but the trendiness of it has really stripped it of almost all (if not all) of its artistic integrity and it always leads me into a mental conflict.

>>100333

>Today's pop music can basically be described as a failed abortion between rock, hip hop, and *wave

A pretty accurate description. Pop music may have gotten a tad more experimental in the recent years, but it hasn't gone any further than autotuning an obnoxious sound bite into the chorus/drop.

>>100337

I blame the "post-grunge" type stuff of the 2000s tarnishing the term.

The problem with modern pop music is that while it did get a bit more experimental sound wise, the overall structure of modern pop music has gotten more formulaic and predictable then ever before. It feel like its the same almost robotically timed choruses and instrumental breaks

Yeah, I was wondering, was it Lorde who brought minimalist pop into the mainstream?

>>100354

Pop music is so prevalent and such a money maker it got streamlined to hell and back.

I think it's a mistake to try and categorize the 10s. Anybody can listen to anything as long as it's on the internet. On top of that, everything online is simplified, you aren't required to use the sketchy P2P services of old anymore, you can stream whatever you want. Any brainlet can do it and there's no real investment, don't even need to wait to buffer. The common man listens to what he wants to listen to for the first time in history. People don't realize just how good it is to enjoy music right now, forget the coon tunes, pop coon tunes, and country coon tunes with acoustics. If they put death metal on the radio for long enough, it would be popular.

>>100354

Today's pop music feels more perfunctory than anything. Since so many listeners will eat up whatever slop you put in front of them, the main thing to focus on is just getting it out the door.

Dubstep also started in the early 2000's, so it doesn't even count.

You're reffering to the original term of dubstep or what got trendy in this decade that was known as "dubstep" but was something else?

I wonder if some dark electronic genre like gabber will get traction next decade

Vaporwave and Hypnagogic pop

Decent throwback stuff that mixes old and new, generic "indie" rock, shitty DJs and mumble rap

Better than previous decade of shit pop music and rap at the very least.


 No.100614

AFAIK, there's been a very consistent focus on retro aesthetic over otherwise generic crap. I think it's an extension of Millennials young and older; a generation that was raised on the Internet, TV and public school by Boomers that couldn't use contraception properly let alone main an economy or anything longterm due to being burntout deadheads.

>>100376

>Any brainlet can do it and there's no real investment, don't even need to wait to buffer. The common man listens to what he wants to listen to for the first time in history.

I think this ties back to what I said above; basically all forms of art are now consumer products in a very blatant yet ironic "way", like we acknowledge there's no dedication or skin in the game but lol we live in a society ok retard.

Fuck this gay ass timeline
