Every generation comes up with angry music that pisses off and annoys the generation that came before it. It’s the shit that older people will automatically classify as “noise”, and “not music”. It’s a collective right of passage akin to the first time someone famous from your age group dies or has n00dz leak onto the internet. Where were you when the Kim Kardasian sextape dropped?
The history of music that pisses off old heads goes something like this jazz>rock>punk>rap>heavy metal>dubstep. That puts us pretty at the present day, where somewhere on earth a 40 year old dude is telling his kids to “turn that shit off”. But, with dubstep getting more and more popular as the days go by, what’s going to be the next thing to infuriate the masses?
How about music that combines IDM, Metal, EDM, and Jazz into something that sounds like a epileptic seizure recorded by midi controller? The Algorithm is a one man band from France that makes music that could easily be the new shit bored kids ride around blasting while freaking out “olds”. The new record Polymorphic Code, manages to balance a shit ton of bleeps bloops and drops with really off time drumming and guitar work. It makes reference to Meshuggah, Kid606, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Skrillex, Squarepusher, and Autechre. It’s equal parts metal and electronics without ever sounding like a lost recording from Orgy. Highly recommended if you’re on a futuristic metal, EDM/IDM tip, or if you’ve just been sent to your room because your dad is a total jerk.
