I'm not the biggest fan of Liturgy but I think they're probably touring together because, yes there's a crowd that will eat this shit up AND the songwriter/guitarist/producer for Sleigh Bells was a guitarist in Poison The Well for a long while so they may know each other in some way through that. Diplo makes music with Sleigh Bells so I imagine that's why he's on the tour. Probably just a bunch of music they like/their friends and it's their home state so they figured why the fuck not.

In defense of people calling Diplo dubstep, I havent heard of him before, but I did wikipedia Diplo and one of the listed genres was "dubstep", if you youtube Diplo you get videos like "Diplo dropping some MASSIVE dubstep", almost all his videos are tagged "dubstep" and from the 30 seconds of one video I heard it sounds a hell of a lot like dubstep (to the untrained ear.)

In fact, given the few electronic genres I am semi familiar with, if someone played me Diplo I'd probably say "that sounds like dubstep."

If a metal band are "hipsters" it's Liturgy, and from my wikipedia/youtube 5 min research of Sleigh Bells they seem to fit exactly what I think of when I think "poppy hipster music", so while Nat's complaints I'm sure are valid, in this instance I think the comments are totally justified.

Also Liturgy fucking suck.

to me, Liturgy is definitely hipster metal haha. and Sleigh Bells is definitely a band listened to by hipsters.
I don't listen to either of these bands, but I don't mind them. Dude's "transcendental black metal" shit is gonna bring even more hipsters to black metal though. Which fucking sucks.

and as for Diplo, dude definitely does some dubstep. He does all kinds of shit so you can't really pinpoint him as "dubstep" but he's put together dubstep mixes, plays dubstep DJ sets, and has made dubstep music himself...So people thinking he's dubstep is pretty understandable.

I still don't get the appeal of dubstep, but oh well. I'll be the first to tell you that Sleigh Bells are a hipster band, but that doesn't mean you should disregard them. "Infinity Guitars" is one of my favorite songs of 2011. I'm considering making the 9 hour drive to see them in Orlando.

Also, not to derail this thread or anything, but speaking of hipster music, check out Childish Gambino. I'm not usually a fan of rap at all, but this guy is great, and definitely worth checking out.

Wouldn't the four hour drive to Jacksonville be shorter?

It's a term that can apply to any genre

The difference is, "Brazilian" is specific. If you say x is a Brazilian thrash band, it's clearly understood what's being said. It's an adjective that isn't a platitude.
