If you follow music trends, you might have read about twinklecore sometime in the last couple of months. In case you're unfamiliar, it's a fancy and reprehensibly idiotic term being ascribed to a legion of bands influenced by "twinkly" mid-'90s emo (à la Braid, the Promise Ring, and the Kinsella brothers' oeuvre). The World Is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid to Die are usually the first band referenced in any article about this so-called resurgence (which is part reality, and part slow news year for a desperate music press), and it's annoying because they're far from its best practitioner. But it's easy to see what's allowed them to make the biggest impression on out-of-touch music writers attempting to make sense of a scene they have no involvement in: the pretentiously long name that's nearly impossible to curtail comfortably; the sensationalist, overtly emotional subject matter; and their overall musical and aesthetic humorlessness.
