From your article:

Quote:
The Brooklyn four-piece, you see, has committed a crime far worse than any other possible transgression for a black metal band: they're hipsters.
So... wouldn't that mean they are hipster black metal? I'm not saying that in a derogatory way, it's just what this new wave of bands is considered to be, and I don't see how you could really deny that.

Hipster black metal is not a genre. That's how.

Calling them hipsters was facetious anyway, I'm not really totally sold that they're hipsters. Why the fuck would they be in a black metal band if they were? How loose has our definition of the hipster become that you can make black metal and still be one?

That Scion interview was a worse crime than being a hipster.

It may be black metal but it's very hipster sounding black metal. Way more hipsters listen to Liturgy then black metal fans.

The bold part makes no sense, the second part is pure conjecture.

It's hard to describe but I know hipster music when I hear it.

I never said it was a genre per se. It's the same as "war metal" or "crabcore" in the sense that it's just some bands that fit a stereotype.

The post- and/or shoegaze elements of these bands (Liturgy, Deafhaven, Alcest, etc.) are what draw hipsters in. While many hipsters prefer indie music, post-rock has become increasingly popular with them as well, so this crossover between genres is not unprecedented. But with that aside, who said there was a strict definition of what music a hipster should like? To my knowledge, a hipster is someone who is in tune with what is popular in the underground (ie: hip), so there's no real binding to a certain genre.
