The problem is you're a pleb RJ and have to have your "indie" spoon fed to you as popular music

Oasis is your idea of alternative

I don't know why you're even humoring this guys goofy opinions maybe because you're old

To borrow a line from Lydon: The problem is YOU

A band like Arcade Fire who I think kind of suck too, are a step above Oasis and Stone Roses in every way

I don't like Imagine Dragons, and they come under the popular-alternative category. Plus there's some pretty obscure stuff from the late 80s such as The Corn Dollies which I love.

Now, just a question about music production: How come virtually everything released nowadays appears to have flawless production whereas the majority of alternative/indie rock from 20/30 years ago was a little unpolished sounding in places, a bit like hearing a good live performance? Live performances by newer bands seem much the same quality on average to performances 30 years ago by similar bands, so I doubt the average musician is any better now. Is this a technology thing?


Lastly, something I've found is that there's still a fair number of bands out there releasing music a bit like stuff from the 90s, but when it comes to melody most of these new songs (even by older bands) seem to be lacking the two/three/four bar power-chord hooks and stuff that music from the 80s through to the 00s often contained (eg: Learn To Fly or When I Come Around). This is the main element that makes music enjoyable for me. Have hooks like this gone out of fashion, or have artists had to stop using them to avoid copyright infringement due to the increasing litigiousness of older artists who came up with similar progressions first?
Thanks for liking Sulk. A band imo that sounds a bit unpolished would be Tomorrows Tulips, they sound like Camper Van Beethoven + Velvet Underground + Beat Happening. The singer sounds like David Lowery of CVB, the drumming has a Twee pop sound, and both guys in TT have the same haircut and sunglasses as John Cale had when he was in VU.

yeah but I figured which direction he was going in and then he confirmed it in his subsequent posts from the OP

but more to the point The Smiths have nothing in common with Foo Fighters

Yes, we know you're post-punk elite ****, but why do you feel the need to tell everyone all the time?
