Could we have a few more threads griping about the soulless vapidity of today's music?

Also, could we have a few responses to this thread pointing out that my OP is simply another on the already bloated and steaming pile of blather about contemporary entertainment?



Thanks!

2. I LOVE today's music.

Not so much the Top 40 stuff, but the indie scene is totally alive and well.

4. Who are your favorites?

I'm looking for some new musicians/bands to get into.

Thanks.

11. I'll give you a quick list:

I just a little lighter sound, but there's plenty of hard-edged music out there, too. And electronic dance stuff:

St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark)
Sufjan Stephens
Tame Impala
Toro y Moi
Tennis
Yo La Tengo
Beach House
Dirty Projectors
Atoms for Peace
Foxygen


Some indie rockers who have made good and graduated:
Arcade Fire
Vampire Weekend

That's SiriusXMU's top 15 for the week. Pretty eclectic list. You'll find something you like. It's all available for free streaming somewhere because that's what the list is all about.l

I've heard of some of these but haven't dug into them. This should be fun!

Best wishes.

6. Yeah, but corporate pop has *always* sucked

What kills me isn't the general critique, but rather the pearl-clutching outrage that pop music "has become" so terrible, as if 00's pop or 90's pop or 80's pop or 70's pop or 60's pop were so damn awesome.

12. Well exactly. Today there are so many sub-genres going on because more people are listening to music

 

Corporate Pop sucked when it was "Yummy Yummy Yummy"

HOWEVER - doesn't mean the singer isn't easy on the eyes (Beyonce)

13. I'm a true follower of the metal and there's been a lot of great albums the last couple years.

Fuck trendy pop music!
