@zippa not into metal at all sorry
@cl0ver idk what you're into at all but my personal favorites on this list for an average listener: 31 (soothing), 23 (fun), 21 (chill), 20 (great study music, although I like to replace "Good Times" w/the original it samples), 16 (sugary uplifting), 15 (sad), 12 (sounds like it was made for music needs), and 4 (groovy)
@sachikom @pangea thanks for the recs, will check out.
@pots edited 2 cause I know little to nothing about hip-hop and from what I've seen you've got a lot of experience w/it. but for the others, I stand by them, even though some of them obviously arent real genres (i.e. "atmospheric" or "static-y") I think they do OK as descriptors of the general sound.
@musicallychallenged i respect you not being a vagina about my comment, u have my admiration.
hip hop will do just fine. as for the atmospheric stuff, it just is often used to glorify things that really are no more atmospheric than anything else in the genre. and on most of the ones u did that to that is definitely the case. and as for the 'static-y funk' thing it was more that neon indian is not funk and 'static-y' is just a silly descriptor imo (also wouldnt it be 'staticky' lol?
@pots yeah I've seen that happen, it's annoying. I'm not really trying to do that but I'm trying to clarify it as different from the others - so like on Jamie xx's album, I definitely feel like it has a much "fadier" feel than a lot of more Todd Edwards-type garage, even if it's obviously very similar in that way to say Burial. and like w/the two Nicolas Jarr eps vs. the Kornel Kovacs there's a very different sound, I just don't really know how to label it (or didn't until Archael helped me out). the neon indian one was kind of a joke although I definitely feel like it has a major funky feel to it, even if it's not an actual funk album. maybe funky pop or something? I really feel like it's not chillwave anymore though
