A dry look back at 21st century genres. Sherburne is very good at this sort of thing
Ahh… i’ve been having a 2010 Hypnogogic Pop flashback this week. OPN, Twin Shadow etc.
completely missed out on that haha!
as a total outsider I found all the electroclash stuff fascinating. felt very out of place one evening at Spitz in Spitalfields - the vibe was all incredibly affected but I couldn’t work out who the joke was on
Miss Kittin did make some good tunes though
there was some excellent music from that witch house scene (although none of it was really TP adjacent). I went to see White Ring live though, there were more people on stage than there was in the audience for them.
If you were to tell me that three of those he just made completely up, my response should be “Only three?”
I still struggle with the 20th Century genres…
Some of these newer ones sound like they’re straight out a Chris Morris doc.
Lowfi house-hopefully. Hence no upload
A few that got away…
When I went to my brother’s record shop in the 90s they had dividers for both Swiss Techno and Ealing Techno
It was big for an afternoon in the NME offices one day in the noughties
& VICE - I remember that 20 mins well
