Quote:
G.L.O.S.S. is a punk band who released one of the most important demos of the last few years a few months ago—five brutal and forceful transgender anthems. Before we even continue, you should go listen to it.
Whirr is some run-of-the-mill shoegaze band that attempts to stay relevant by hurling bullshit on the internet.
Whirr hurled such bullshit tonight about G.L.O.S.S. and it did not work out for them. It all started with this bullshit tweet (which has since been deleted):

Couldn't quote full article due to embedded tweets, but: GOOD FUCKIN' RIDDANCE


Glad to see labels taking a stand like this.

I have never heard of Whirr, for obvious reasons. Fuck 'em.

I particularly enjoyed this roast:

Yeah they're just a 'sorta there' shoegaze group that had a bit of a following around 2012 or so. I wondered what happened to 'em and saw this article on a discord. Thought it was recent since they have a new album soon

Still, fuck erm

On the bright side, I got to discover G.L.O.S.S.

Fuck yeah, this is 100% my shit.

aaaaaah so not really a genre? or does it have particular tics?

i always thought tjmc was just regular postpunk songs behind noisy curtains

(the noise not really being essential to the thing i mean, just “decor”)

mvb just amped the distortion but again, usual melodies

-x

eta: im a heathen, I KNOW

most modern shoegaze bands are variations of the mbv or slowdive sound

the real cool stuff though imho are the bands which incorporate those dreamy soundscapes into heavier music, creating 'blackgaze' and 'post-metal'

it's something very recent that's happened in the music scene, starting w/ bands like Deftones, Isis, Russian Circles, Alcest, Deafheaven,Bosse-de-Nage, etc.

Seriously, Mr. Symbols...

I would die to hear your thoughts on Rolo Tomassi's Time Will Die and Love Will Bury It

 


By far my album of the year and I implore you to give it a listen

Spotify should have it, if that's your fix, but it's also on the Youtubez.
