He comes across as a bit of dick to me. My choice of music is better than yours, and so on.

He is good at what he does. But, it is too simple to generalize music the way he does. Indie is just some dumb label that has been milked by the media, the same way alternative, grunge, emo and all of that shit has been. I want to see the media try to milk a genre like power violence ... lets see if they can do it... because they would never make the amount of money they want out of these sheeples.

solecistsays...

what a retarded sweeping generalization. really? "indie music"? no, dude. stop listening to the radio.

but, uh, totally right about dubstep.

rich_magnetsays...

That was a hilarious parody of whoever he's trying to parody. Though I found it richly layered, he sure nailed the distinctive vocal inflection without any real lyrics.

And to be fair, Beardyman can parody just about any genre. He's really good at it - note how he parodied dubstep immediately afterwards.

rbarsays...

Amazing how he is able to do dubstep or indie better then most dubstep or indie, he is absolutely musically skilled.

Peroxidesays...

Don't get me wrong, he's talented but you'll never find anything of his on my ipod. Trance for life.

Are you mental , It is clear from his presentation that he is not retarded and its a given that ultimately everyone has a subjective taste in music. Its also the case that some ganras require little thought or effort to produce something that will be perfectly acceptable for a comercail record.

This is probably why he says Dubstep is shit evan though he then says he enjoys it.

The thing with Indy which can also make it "SHIT" even if no music is intrinsically shit is the pretence surrounding it its as if the pretence is 70% of the music in some cases.

Other ganras certainly suffer from retarded pretence it just seems to be particualy prominent in more ganras than other.

Thats said There will be lots of Indy Tracks that I'm sure are really good and deviate from the down the line generic formula and lack the idiotic pretence.

If you are performing to a live audeance like with comedians and comedy you are forced due to lack of time to make statements that on the face of it are sweeping and can be interpreted in a pesamistic or optimistic way. If you look at the character of beardy man then in this case it makes more sense to give him the benefit of the doubt.

I listen and listened to allot of trance for last 14 years or so, To me so much of it is utter shit its almost not worth listening to all the "shit" to get to the good stuff.

seems to be an issue with allot of electronic music I guess because its easy to produce the basics but hard to make something iconic or sound really tight.

anyway lol I find it strange listening to trance when out the contrast between people doing every day boring shit and what I am listening to is to much , maybe if I was on mushrooms it would work better together.

You probably know about it already but if not you should check out www.DI.FM , They do play annoying adds and lack new content allot but in general its decent.

IMO
-80% of all music is shit.
-Every genre has good and bad examples, but mostly bad.
-There is no such thing as objectively 'good' music. Whatever music pleases you the most is the best music in the world, even if it's Celine Dian (gag).
-Different styles of music have different effects on your brain (some are stimulants, some are depressants, some tell you stories, some are trippy, some are trance inducing, some speak to primal rage, some make you horny, some make you laugh, some challenge your intellect, some make you happy, some make you sad, some take you on a dynamic emotional journey, etc.)
-The more styles of music you are able to understand and enjoy, the better your life will be.

watch the whole thing: he goes through a ton of music genres... calling each of 'em shit. It's just part of the gig.

Deanosays...

For me I feel he's talking about the "shoe-gazing" style of British Indie music that lingered across the 80s and into the 90s. But I guess Indy/Indie means something altogether different these days.

I doubt he could do it so well if he actually "hated" it. From every video I've seen, he hates everything he does.

bookfacesays...

Been saying it for years: indie is shit. It is pastiche pop art, meaning it's inherently derivative. Ironically, musicians and fans of indie fancy themselves counter-cultural (hipsters) when all they've managed to do is raid their parent's record collection and grandparent's wardrobe. Furthermore, there needs to be a moratorium on the following instruments: glockenspiel, celesta, toy piano, or any other bell like instrument. These are staples of the indie diet and they make any track INSTANTLY sound like a Target commercial. I could go on but indie will be dead and gone before I'd finish the rant.

"after this you'll never have to listen to another indie song in your life" Thats funny, I thought the same thing about dubstep after the first 4 seconds of this video.

Oh yeah and he really showed his bias when he called indie the most ceaselessly repetitive un-innovative genre of music: Punk anyone? Of course not, punk's been shit since the 90's.

I love the way people take this sort of performance as a serious representation of the artist's views. Sit him down and have a serious chat and I'll draw a conclusion then.
