The New Hotness: GorillaVsBearcore
|Look what you've started, Alan.|
It's a nice track, sure, but what's pretty funny about it all is that no one's really sure to call the genre in which this and other Cantalini-approved acts, like Memory Cassette, exists.
So, perhaps in spite of Pitchfork's attempts to term the genre "glo-fi," this hilarious post popped up on Hipster Runoff earlier this week, offering up more than a few choices. Some actually make sense, albeit in an absurdist way--no-fi, post-electro, conceptro and freakwave. But the funniest offering? Without a doubt: GorillaVsBearcore. Probably not too likely to stick, no. But, still.
And it begs the question: What does the namesake think of the moniker? Writes Cantalini: "Haha, I prefer 'chillwave' or 'shitfork,' but if GorillaVsBearcore catches on, I won't argue."
