Pitchfork recently posted a YouTube video explaining how gothic music came to be. While I agree to most part, there are some I don’t concer with.
Although the writer it is obviously being funny, I have to make up my own playlist to better explain goth music. There are post-punk music, shoegaze, ambient, noise, Victorian goth, classical…even black metal. Any music that a goth would listen to.
This playlist is ever evolving. I constantly add and subtract. But mostly just add. And I try just placing one song per artist. But there are some which I can’t stop myself and put two.
And Kanye West will never, ever be goth!
