Re: RIP Witch House

RE: dubstep...be it Disney autotune pop on the radio, tv commercials, movie trailers, or just cars whizzing by dubstep is EVERYWHERE or at least forms of it. Dubstep is probably one of the most biggest cultural phenomenons of the last couple years in America

Re: RIP Witch House

Well a lot of the bands associated with the witch house 2010 movement or release field definitely seemed to have evolved into something else entirely. Grimes is now MTV pop star core, Fostercare is doing 90's techno inspired trippy stuff, Ritualz is doing a form of EBM, etc. Holy Other is the suppor...

Re: The Dismissal & Misunderstanding Of WH By People

Witch House has changed a lot since 2010, but I wouldn't consider it dead -not at all. The "scene" got a lot bigger (labels and their merch etc.) plus it has become more commercial. In the beginning everyone did his own thing, there weren't any guidelines to be considered "witchy"(you can deny it o...

Re: Almost witch house? New witch house? Is this witch house or whaaat ; P

I think a LOT of newerish acts are being roped into the witch house arena and are kind of just like "um, ok". The only reason the 2010 movement seemed to have coaleased together was because a bunch of artists seemed to be doing something strange and dark within the indie music underground even if th...

Re: The Dismissal & Misunderstanding Of WH By People

I think the biggest issue is the whole “goth” scene that dominates the alternative clubs. In my opinion, a lot of people who identify with the whole goth scene are really set in to the whole “THIS IS GOTH AND THIS IS WHAT IS NOT” thing. I mean, have you ever spent time around a group of Goths? They...

Re: Is Witch House Dead? -- Second Generation Witch House Picked Up By Goths

As of August 2012, there still has been no umbrella label for all of this witch house(drag), experimental, drone/dream pop, retro EBM industrial, etc. Dark electronica fits, no? But perhaps there's a need for more specificity. I just, for now generically call it "dark indie". Because it's mostly th...

Re: Is Witch House Dead? -- Second Generation Witch House Picked Up By Goths

I think over-defining and subdividing everything into little genres will just kill it. We saw the same thing happen with electro-industrial. It does not really matter anymore how it started or what anyone intended. It does not really even matter what we call it. Just ride the wave. Thanks art schoo...

Re: Is Witch House Dead? -- Second Generation Witch House Picked Up By Goths

Art school kids are super over it but my guess is that 100 people across the world hear it for the 1st time every day. I also think it's far from done, yet what is happening now is the beginning of the second wave. At least, you could probably mark the 3 year point and/or official end of the first ...

Re: Is Witch House Dead? -- Second Generation Witch House Picked Up By Goths

punk really IS dead, though, and EBM should be (why the fuck isn't it?). any artistic expression loses an important part ov itself when it goes mainstream. Punk isnt dead, it evolved into skramz and power violence, the scene moves on, styles change, names change. This website could easily be new-br...

Re: Is Witch House Dead? -- Second Generation Witch House Picked Up By Goths

I think the Witch House Aesthetic is getting pretty big too.The fashion world is seeing inverted crosses, triangles ,and "witchy" inspired collections. The UK based shop Ivory Jar released headbands named after Mater Suspira, Modern Witch, and †No Virgin†. Miista released a collection called "Elect...

Re: Is Witch House Dead? -- Second Generation Witch House Picked Up By Goths

The dark beat is strong. Tumblr/Facebook/Soundcloud/bandcamp work together to flow the internet world with music. Pictureplane/crystal castles/grimes are all big namses now and when someone like SPF50 or TEARIST does a remix of their song the fanbase grows. Its all electronic/industrial/trance to m...

Re: Is Witch House Dead? -- Second Generation Witch House Picked Up By Goths

While it's good some in the "goth"(modern EBM rivet cybergoth whatever) scene are getting into some of the darker new indie(AS THEY SHOULD:))), I think that dissing on the 'hipsters' is a missed opportunity. Just like I get crap for talking shit about the cybergoth VNV/combichrist 00ntz crowd(someth...
