The most comforting motive - albeit ridiculously pretentious on my own part - that I use to justify this current fascination is that it seems as though post-[insert genre] is just a little too much to be classified as any normal, run-of-the-mill sound. Too much what remains to be accurately answered inside my brain. The arrogant part of me wants to say "too intelligent," but the logical side says "Probably more like too weird."
As time goes by I find myself more and more interested in musical genres that begin with the word "post." Is it the weird time signatures? The layered sonic assaults? Is it the experimentation with intricate instrumentation?
