Quite frankly, I am so totally over the whole “genre”-thing, I can’t even be bothered.
I tried to give a shit, I really did: I genuinely tried to take the (misbegotten and idiotic) notion of a unified aesthetic “scene” involving a narrowly-circumscribed sonic “palette”, ready-made “tropes”, and clothing/hair-styles seriously — but I just don’t seem to have whatever serious cognitive defect is involved in that level of herd-conformity/pretentiousness seriously..
Quite frankly, any of the above-mentioned bullshit indicates that you don’t actually “like” any of it – and are merely using it as a system of “subcultural shibboleths”.
I find such things ridiculous. I simply cannot help it.
I don’t find herd-conformity (even to a “niche” subculture) to be at all ‘edgy” – let alone “rebellious”. Likewise, I simply can’t make myself stupid enough to be able to do/enjoy things “ironically”.
What the hell does that even mean, exactly? “Oops! I just did something/expressed an opinion which conflicts with the particular STEREOTYPE I’m slavishly aping! Gotta figure out some way to “distance” myself from that lapse! I know…..maybe if I SMIRK AT IT, I can “bluff” my way out of having failed to be sufficiently conformist!”
Doing things “ironically” is tantamount to the attempt to spit in your own face.
TL;DR: shove your “microgenre” bullshit.
