if i have to read one more "elegy to rave" or "incorporating rave elements for the 21st century" in a write up for a new release i will spit. it's such an annoying buzzy phrase right now. look people, we already had the perfect rave elegy and it was alright! by bogdan LITERALLY 10 years ago.

it’s cool how using certain sounds or motifs that are aspects of a genre is doing an elegy. doing distortion is also elegiac i think and possibly also slow music. if you incorporate elements 10 or more years after they were common you’re either doing an elegy or cultural critique imo

Only thing I can think of that 1) I actually listened to 2) came out this year 3) is worth of AOTY is Narkopop. The Rolando Simmons is pretty good but not in that league - I don't find myself wanting to listen to it except that first track.

yeah the first track has all the post-elegy "feels" but then somehow the rest of the album meanders too much
