Are >>> the equivalent of hipster hashtags? hahaha I have no idea I was just fixing what was probably a joke to actual reality.

I've never met a hipster who listened to sludge. Shoegaze on the other hand...

Are you trying to say Hipsters don't exist anymore? If so maybe they left your town and came to the east coast because they are more prevalent now around here than ever before. And in case you didn't hear... they love using the word shoegaze. It's like crack to them

There's a rule of thumb I use, mostly applicable to Europe, but I've seen enough evidence for it to be true elsewhere as well. It goes something like this:

Roadburn would book them >> hipster

Roughly speaking.

Nah, but you said, shoegaze it's hipster's metal of choice but shoegaze isn't metal. Not even close. Whether or not hipster like shoegaze or not is a different topic. And sure there are hipsters out there but I think it's stupid that everybody seems to think somebody is a hipster because they like a certain kind of music, or certain musics are for hipsters or something. Shit is dumb.

I think it's a different distinction than that.

Retro "1970s" rock is hip right now, and a bunch of it is getting lumped together with doom. The likes of Orchid, Scorpion Child, Blues Pills, Zodiac, Graveyard, Witchcraft, et al. They're not doom. They borrow some of the lyrical themes and moods, but that's it.

So, like you say, that stuff is cool, but real doom isn't. Candlemass didn't suddenly see a huge uplift in sales, you know?

That said, Pilgrim and Windhand seem to be quite well regarded at the moment. I think Pilgrim pulled it off just by making a damn good album. Windhand I don't get, because 'Soma' is their most boring music to date. Wouldn't be the first band to get dull and get popular at the same time though.

I just don't know why 'hipster' is such a derogatory word around here And plus, you just shouldn't stereotype and label groups of people like that. It's horrible.
