I don't think there is any possible way I could go on about this subject while staying within the 10000 character limit.

i'm kinda hating the whole "low-fi folk rock" movement going on. i don't see what's so special about it. sure, it's low-fi, but only a few bands can truly pull it off without being annoying. and plus half of the songs are super bland.

Out of every Genre/movement/whatever you get a few bands that can pull it off and are actually good and then you get a few bands that are just bland and boring. What's the problem?

meh, it's just that only one or two acts can pull off a lo-fi sound.
the rest are quite bland and all pretty much sound the same sometimes.

One or two acts can pull off a certain production? Have a word. It's just like any genre, you get a few good ones and a few that use the lo-fi to blanket their lack of talent. Lo-fi is a great production, as long as the music actually has some substance.

I think the most irritating indie trend I can remember was the whole dadrock thing that started in the mid 90s & still seems to be around.

The kind of people who hero worship awful shit like Oasis, Ocean Colour Scene , Kaiser Chiefs & Cast and who seem to think Paul Weller is God.
They remind me of the British equivalent of America's Pearl Jam / Grunge fanboys

We've had a fair few of them come through here (And leave again, thank God) I think Mirrorball was the last.

I was into that kinda stuff for a couple of weeks, then got bored of it real quick. I also find that music bland and all sounding the same. Again, some bands are good (The Acorn, Antlers), but the majority of the music still sounds boring and not special. Lo-fi's hard to pull off imo.

I don't like this whole 'indie-pop' thing either, like Band Of Horses, The Format, etc.
