I'm sure most of you know what a hipster is. Usually they are known for liking indie bands. I'm wondering what prog bands they like though so if any of you consider yourself a hipster I'd be curious as to what you listen to. I'd guess that any retro prog is out and probably most symph prog. I'd guess that experimental stuff or Krautrock is safe for them though.Also, post rock is probably a pretty safe bet too.

I have never met any hipsters that like prog in general... or know what it is.  I've met couple that like post-rock and those sorts of things.  I've been to the dear hunter and circa survive concerts full of hipsters.  Not sure what a particular band has to do to attract them.  Austin is full of hipsters and not a prog band in sight.

I can only think of post rock bands.
Giraffes? Giraffes! comes to mind first.

...And Steven Wilson's lyrics, though I'm not aware of hipsters that listen to Porcupine Tree or his solo stuff.

I only know one person who considers himself a hipster, but he's 47, so he grew up on the likes of Pink Floyd. I don't really know though.

If it's the right people I'm thinking of "those types" usually prefer Krautrock over Anglo-Saxon prog, Syd Barrett-fronted Pink Floyd over Roger Waters-fronted Pink Floyd, Captain Beefheart over Frank Zappa, the Canterbury scene over other British bands etcetera. Basically, think of the Goldilocks zone between "too popular to be underground" and "too obscure to be mainstream" and you should be right on track.

...anything that's released on vinyl (or, cassette, tape, wax cylinder or sheet music)? I suspect that in a very short space of time digital hardcopy media such as CD, MiniDisc and DAT will be added to that list, if it hasn't already. Coincidentally, I powered-up my portable Kenwood CD-player yesterday to play a disc I hadn't bothered to transfer to mp3, even that seemed to be retro and hipsterish.

Being old, and somewhat out of the loop, I actually had to look this up to see what it was in the modern parlance, to me  a hipster is a more archaic term that I could apply to any group of "alt" people. But even after reading Wikipedia on the subject it seems to me that most prog fans are borderline hipsters in attitude if not life-style or dress-sense - (erudite, knowledgeable and rejecting of modern mores), perhaps the only real difference is the not wanting to belong to the current social definition, which being self-referential makes it somewhat hipster, or at least close neighbours...

many hipsters like prog, generally the more modern, folk or alternative influenced styles. They seem to be the ones responsible for making prog (relatively) popular again.

Prog bands hipsters generally like in Murfreesboro/Nashville:
The Decemberists
The Mars Volta
The Dear Hunter
Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Sigur Ros
Between The Buried and Me
Steven Wilson and PT
Isis
King Crimson
Mr. Bungle
Radiohead

There are about 10000 types of hipster

I am only using this term because you are bringing it up, because I think no one really understands what it means so it's now used as an insult... even though hipsters have been around since the 1920s. The pre- Jack Keuroacs (sp)? 


My next door neighbor in NYC is one of the most hipster dudes that I know, and there are multiple 'art houses' with groups of hipster people. Most of them like all the music that hipster girls like usually. I would have thought they would all hate the party music they listen to. But, they are all cool people open to most types of music to be honest. I have no problem with "hipstertype"  people.
I get along with all those groups pretty well though and like within all social groups, there are usually a few people that are awesome people no matter what people they identify with.

Now I know some people that I would actually consider them to be a "hipster stereotype." 
Those people HATE HATE prog rock because most of them are late 20's to early 30's. I couldn't play Mr. Bungle for those people without them wanting to kill me. Some of these dudes are actually artists for a living so I'm pretty sure they fit the definition better than most people.


Some of them can't stand my band, as our music is too different and they actually tell me they want to hear a specific genre... which is silly to me because you would think hipsters would love stuff like Estradasphere.


Basically no one knows what this means and my post has no meaning anyway.

My 18-year old daughter can be properly called a hipster, but she is not very much into prog. She does not have obvious long time faves like her old man. Of the bands she has listened to, the closest to prog are The Beatles (she mentioned them a few times diring the last years) and Muse.

OK fine. It doesn't matter to me anyway. The term hipster isn't really important. It's just a name. The idea was to find out what kind of prog(if any) a certain subculture is interested in. I could have just as easily asked what kind of prog do hippies or deadheads like. Wink

Some hipsters listen to music they call "prog rock" or "prog metal" - but that is a different meaning of the term.  It happened in the 1990s when alternative rock journalists sought a term for music of bands such as Tool and their ilk, they realized how this kind of music was similar to what in electronic music circles was called "progressive", and used this adjective to name the music they were looking for a designation for (which does not mean that this alternative "progressive rock" descends from progressive electronic music - it is only similar in texture).  They may have even been utterly unaware of the previous existence of the term "progressive rock".

So now there are two unrelated music genres going by the name "progressive rock", one that is considered outré (if they know about it at all) among hipsters - the one we are usually talking about here, and has borne this label since the late 1960s - and one that some hipsters subscribe to.

It is hard to say that hipsters and alternative rock journalists are "wrong" about using that term - words in languages always mean what they are used for.  It is just that this word has two meanings in two contexts, which sometimes can be confusing.  I have had conversations where we talked past each other and found out after a few minutes talking about "progressive rock", that there was not a single band we were both into!

That looks fairly accurate. I'd add Muse and Black Mountain and maybe even Maserati.

Zombi also gained quite a few fans when they toured heavily for a couple years in the mid-2000s.

Indeed, I don't consider Tool progressive rock, though I concede that there are some similarities - but these do not reach much further than the length of the pieces and the often complex rhythms.  Otherwise, Tool is very different.  There is no rich, changeful dramaturgy, only an ostinato onto which more and more layers are laid, providing a texture that thickens toward the end of the piece.  Also, I find nothing of the progressive mind set characteristic of progressive rock; rather, the mind set is dark, nihilistic and cynical.

The music of Tool is much more akin to post-industrial and noise rock than to progressive rock, and it tells a lot that rightist "neofolk" and industrial bands such as Current 93 or Sol Invictus have adopted this style in some of their works, while right-wing progressive rock appears to be non-existent.  (Not that Keenan himself was a rightist; I see no evidence for that.)

Hipsters dig Brian Eno, Kraftwerk, Can, King Crimsons Red, and a few others. Pitchfork.com is the holy grail for hipsters in terms of what music they are supposed to like, and that site gives props to the above mentioned as well as Amon Duul II, Robert Wyatt, and Magma. They have rated albums by all these bands very high. Even yes's Close To The Edge garnered a 9 out of ten rating on that site. Check out there top 100 albums of the 70's and you will see some surprises. I have been accused of being a hipster so you can trust me :-)

[sarcasm]
Hipsters use music genre names as a secret code.  These genre names are not defined by recognizable features of the music, rather the hipsters have lists which arbitrarily assign bands to "genres", and which they learn by heart.  If you don't know these lists, you inevitably misclassify bands - and thereby show that you are not a hipster.

My apologies to you and Mr. Pianoman. Now what would be one of the major differences? Possibly less HEMP??
So, a Hipster would maybe be like Cosmo Krammer in Seinfeld. I remember Eliane, calling Krammer a HIPSTER DOUFAS one time. Anyhow, i think I get what you are saying. And yeah, the new agey Chakra crystal wearing individual is far different than.....

I don't know what a Hipster is, and somehow I'm not embarrassed to say it. There was a local band here in the early '80's called The Hypstrz and they were really good if you were looking for the opposite of prog, which I sort of was at the time.



But nowadaze I'd say they listen to Coldplay.

As a general reply to the thread.
I've always found that classifying people into a wedge is foolish no matter how intrinsic it may feel.
I have a friend who absolutely loves to use the word "Hipster" to denigrate a particular artist or song I recommend, and although he would never admit if I asked him, it's painfully obvious to me that he unfairly avoids appreciating a particular artist or song based solely on whether or not a 'hipster' would like it. He's actually used the words "sounds too hipster". What being hipster and the sound of music have to do with each-other is beyond me.

This attitude of pretentiousness is generally 
how I would consider someone being a 'hipster dufus'. Liking or disliking something based on it's sub-cultural basis. Which is ironically what I would consider my friend, who hates 'hipster's. He acts like the dufus type of it...  uhhh... I have a headache thinking about it.

So anyways, my point is, there isn't any way you can say "this is what hipsters like", because people aren't hipsters, they're individuals who are going to like what they like, unless they act like a hipster dufus and preconceive their appreciation for something.

my brain just keeps hurting... this is pointless. Circular logic Ouch  (I suck)

Good point, Radioswim.  Are there any people who consider themselves hipsters?

Why delete this thread -- what's wrong with hampsters? I love the little critters -- the way they hoard food and nibble on the likes of fruit and nuts.

Hipster hampsters Confused

A hand held over a candle in angst fuelled bravado. A carbon trail scores a moist stretched palm. Trapped in the indecision of another fine menu. This is the story so far.

Hipsters are a big joke and no one makes more or better fun of them than Steve Colbert.
