Blogcore is music that is the focus of the myriad of independent music blogs on the internet.
Independent music blogs attempt to create an alternative to the mainstream media outlets, and instead intentionally reject major label artists in favour of relatively unknown musicians, often with an air of superiority in their tone.
The irony is that the vast majority of independent music can be classified as mildly experimental, superficial lo-fi indie rock inflected with tokenistic, often ironic use of electronic instruments.
Where the independent music blogs had attempted to promote a wealth of innovative musical creativity, the end was result is a stagnant scene of sound-a-likes that offer little to no variation between each band, and therefore may be classified under the single genre of Blogcore.
Blogcore is popular music amongst the Hipster subculture and also the burgeoning Blogbaby subculture.
Pitchfork Media recommend the following Blogcore acts:
Clap Your Hands, Say Yeah
1. Probably 90% of the time three guitars and one drummer. You know a band is mediocere when there only expirience with a guitar is when they "Got 97% on Throught The Fire and Flames!111"
2. Highly disrespected musical group usually found in High Schools. The members in these groups range from being normal people, Obese tuba players, People who got stuck in it, and last the "BAND IS FUCKING AWESOME!!!1" people. These are the people who highly disrespect anyone who doesent play the Clarinet, Tuba, Saxophone, Trumbone, Trumpet, and all those other instruments that recieve blowjobs. I respect Band but dont respect the "BAND IS FUCKING AWESOME" people. They are the people who have to post definitions on urbandictionary.com to convince themselves that band is cool.
Middle school and High School Band
a band that has strategically attached itself to the easiest fanbase in the world to manipulate... the young American female. Now, they still have their share of tween males, but they own the brain of the young American female. It's why they are allowed to keep pumping out basically the same 2 songs, each with similar musical structures. They have the slow song...which features elementary guitar playing, and Chad Kroeger singing about some type of sadness that doesn't actually exist on Earth or the "remember high school" theme (a la Kenny Chesney). Then they take the slow song principles... speed up the guitar a little... and instead of sadness they go to the other end of the spectrum... and they sing about either a) unattainable fame... b) doing drugs (which they probably know nothing about)... or c) a combination of a + b with some type of sex added to it. By playing BOTH ends of the spectrum... young people (retards) and women go nuts because they think that makes Nickelback "musically diverse".... but in actuality they are very, very limited in what they can do with their instruments.more...
Just watch a video of them on Youtube. Watch how they make their guitar riffs look extremely hard... They always make that "this part is complicated" face when they are playing. But, if you take the time to actualy listen to the music it's the same basic notes over and over and over again.
a young French all-woman rock'n'roll band that formed a few years ago. They consist of:
Katty Beanard - vocals + guitar
Marine Neuilly - guitar
Louise Basillein - bass
Anais Vandevywere - drums.
Their sound is based on post-punk and New Wave styles, pretty similar to another great all-woman band from the 80's, the Go-Gos. The singing is done in both English and their native French. Their first album was LP1, which featured the hits "Loser", "Pop In, Pop Out" and the Joan Jett -inspired "Shake". Late last year they released "about love" - it's one of the best albums put out last year. Check them out, they're one terrific export from France.
1. The Plastiscines got their name from "plastiscine", a word found in the lyrics of the psychedelic Beatles hit "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds". That word itself refers to a glue or cement which is sold in the U.K. and Europe.more...
2. The Plastiscines are the vanguard of what may well be a revival of rock'n'roll music. For over a decade there has been chumpy boy bands, gangsta (c)rap, American Idol puke pop, phony country, phony punk, phony r & b, stupid airheads who have zero talent who shake their butts (with dancers behind them), lip-syncing to a disc while people gawk in an empty-headed way, and other bullshit. Now here is an all-female rock group that writes and sings their songs and actually plays their own instruments. Yes they are young, cute and French (ooh la la) but they make and perform SONGS. Mu...
Absolutely amazing band. Of the indie rock persuasion. This band has created two albums, Wonderland, and more recently, an album generated to be musical-esque, Razia's Shadow. Their name came from the novel Fight Club and are from Seattle, Washington. The lead singer, and now only member of the band, Thomas Dutton, is a genius, using beautiful instruments, and guest singers such as Brendon Urie from Panic at the Disco, Greta Salpeter from The Hush Sound, Casey Crescenzo from The Dear Hunter, Max Bemis from Say Anything, and many more.
"Oh hey, look at this completely genius, misunderstood band from Fueled by Ramen."
"Oh you must mean Forgive Durden."
"Why yes, I am."
Performing very badly on a musical instrument. Hitting blatantly errant notes, most popularly on brass or woodwind instruments.
When Chet Baker was straight he could play like Gabriel himself, but when he was strung out on junk he was mostly blowing clams out on stage.
Slang for the musical instrument, trombone.
Trompwns absolutely pwn all other instruments with trompwn suicides and lame sexual jokes.
Trompwn player - Wanna hear a good pickup line?
Regular Guy - Ok, sure
Trompwn player - "Hey baby, Trompwns do it in all 7 positions"
Regular Guy - Wow, that simply pwns all other pickup lines. I wish I could play the trompwn..
