Re: wtf is

slowcore is music for people who want to sleep... I can't remember how much times I felt asleep during a Low show... even if I like what they play...

I'm sure I have read some of Low's stuff being described as slowcore.

I've never been more alive than when attending a LOW show. Guess you've never seen them perform this:

Probably.
But, they are a very good band, I really liked their music. It's just... I don't know... I can't resist at gigs... But it was the same with Arab Strap in another kind of music.
And I can't play any of their songs today, because they are too... slowcore ! :-)

A lot of the stuff that I like could also be described as "psychedelic". Some object to that term, but I've always associated it with certain attitude or that spaced-out, alien-from-another-planet approach. If some organ solo to me sounds psychedelic, then I think it's played by an individual who's dared to venture a bit far out, regardless if he IS far out or if the chemicals have pushed him far out.

Listen to this for a moment (first two minutes basically) and then tell me, was this drug-induced or not?

i agree, not all psychedelic music is drug-induced. to be honest when i read an artist or album described as "psychedelic" it piques my interest because it'll probably be out there, and i like spaced out sounds whether stoned or sober. Some of it is rubbish, for sure.
