early 80s, maybe a few years in the 70s

kinda cashing in on the 80s—slightly less pretentious, I suppose, if one omits Simpsons and critics who yammer on how Nirvana started everything for the masses.

As much as I love Talking Heads, the drums on Remain in Light make it sound pretty dated.

not a coherent line of thought that

Lo-Fi music tends to age better because production techniques are what usually date music

Except in those cases where an album utilizes trends that eventually become cliches of those times in a way that artists who came after them found to be no longer "fresh". It goes far beyond production value.

I dunno if things ever really become dated per-se. Otherwise genres like synthwave wouldn't have have such massive followings in 2019. The resurgence in global popularity of stuff like 80's City Pop from Japan is another good example.

it's not that no one plays or listens to it anymore, it's that when you hear it you go "that's very 80's"

"genres don't become dated"
*references a genre built on nostalgia of a single decade's trends as an example*

The fact you associate "nostalgic appreciation" of something with the idea of something being "dated" is wrong. Bands like The Midnight or GUNSHIP wouldn't dominate Bandcamp unless they were able to achieve relevency for a large subset of people. The vast majority of fans of bands like that weren't even alive in the 80's.

But whatevs. Expecting nuance in these kinds of discussions is just asking to be let down.

You're telling me that music referencing a specific time in music history isn't easy to connect to styles of music from the time that it's referencing? Get out.
