    wow! Supporter

    One of my favorite genres, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. Some examples:









    Let’s talk slowcore

    I like the slowcore that I'm familiar with (bedhead, carissa's wierd), but find that a lot of the stuff i like is also more slowcore adjacent at times like early pedro the lion, early death cab...i think im gonna make more of an effort to get into the bigger names in this genre

    oh i like Codeine too but i've listened to them significantly less and only one of their albums bc bedhead comes before them on my saved spotify albums haha

    also maybe it's the title of the song but the low song in the first post has vocals that remind me of J Mascis if he was more emotive and that Jim Yoshii Pile Up song is cool so i will be looking for their albums today lol. listening to the Seam song rn

    maybe it's because im not literate in the genre, but i often hear a bit of Mineral in slowcore and i hear it in that band. is that a contributing factor? haha. what do you recommend as a starting point?

    Yeah mineral was super influenced by low and codeine and the like during the end serenading writing process. Definitely was my entry into the genre haha.

    Do you mean as a starting point for TJYPU or the genre in general?

    Makes sense. I think Tim Kasher said the early Cursive stuff was influenced by Codeine as well, so maybe they should top my list

    I meant for Jim Yoshii

    Interesting! I wouldn’t have picked up on that.

    You should tho! The white birch is incredibly influential

    It’s winter here was my entry point and I would say the best place to start

    kinda feel like mogwai is more slowcore than post-rock. also, cloakroom is good.

    I've suddenly been seeing their name everywhere the last few months, especially since that stereogum article. it's crazy people like this band so much and me not hear about it for so long and suddenly everyone's the most open they've ever been about it
