AW YEAH SUPER PASSIONATE ROCK MUSIC THAT MAKES YOU WANNA DO FUN AND STUPID STUFF EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE STUCK IN COLLEGE AW YEAH
So that’s about the gist of “Twinklecore” music that I’ve been listening to a lot of recently. It’s full of anthemic verses and lyrics, shouting vocals full of energy and heart, and complex instrumentals, mostly quickly picked guitar melodies with intricate percussion rhythms. It’s really a combination of early emo rock and the super dense elements of math rock. That is, before it goes into a sonic assault against your brain with a wall of sound smashing your ear drum, like many good rock songs do. Yeah, some people might diss on the vocals for being cracky or not very good, but that’s just the live and hearty aspect of them: they didn’t go into a studio and make it manufactured to sound professional, this is raw material.
It’s righteous stuff and I feel like I wouldn’t have been introduced to it if I hadn’t moved to the East Coast, it definitely sounds like being cramped up with a bunch of other twenty-somethings in a small apartment in the big city or in the middle of nowhere being surrounded by people believing that the East Coast is the safe haven for economic stability, when in fact tons of people are suffering out here, too. But they also hold that youthful, angsty energy that comes along with High School or being a social outcast. It’s sad at times, but very powerful. Bands that definitely pioneered the sound for these bands to follow would be American Football, Cap’n Jazz, Joan of Arc and more. So if you like this stuff, you might as well go to the kings of the style.
Phew. Alright. Well, the music is great, anyways. I’m just now getting into this kind of music, so if you have any gripes with my writings, make sure to educate me. Check these two bands, Glocca Morra and Dads, out since they’re going to be on my Top 50 Albums of 2012 list that should be coming out sometime soon.
Have a nice week!
