The last British Sea Power album, released a bit more than a year ago, is outstanding. Shame's debut album, released this year, is brilliant. Country music has always been stale.

Erm, Coldplay's British.

 

Anyway, I'm loving a lot of Alter Bridge, and the prog metal scene (Leprous, Haken, TesseracT, The Contortionist, The Aristocrats, Animals as Leaders) is great.  You just have to dig for it.

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

Pop culture is crass as hell but the undercurrent is still good. Digging is the only way. Agree with that

Bands like QOTSA, Mastodon, Clutch, Opeth, Gojira, and Steven Wilson are carrying the torch just fine for me.  Newer bands like Alter Bridge and Volbeat are fun to listen to, if not exactly my wheelhouse.

Gomer is always putting us on...

Kinda hard to tell.

 

 

As for me, I think it's all been downhill since the '70s. lol.


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

AAL is the only group mentioned I'm listening to. I could care less about vocals nowadays, so my tastes are devolving. Been on a big Vai/Satriani kick of late.

That's really cool. Getting an early '80s New Wave guitars with punk vocals vibe.

Yeah, this song is what I want played at my funeral.  Definitely the best song they've put out in two decades, maybe in my lifetime.

Avenged Sevenfold. Better than most of the shit from the 70s.

 

From the mid 80s onward music has just gotten better.

 

Fuck these old dumbfucks that think the 70s was the be-all and end-all. I'm looking at you, Peter Criss.

 

If you are one of these Dana Carvey Grumpy Old Man types that says In My Day, Music Was Better blah blah blah - congratulations,, you have turned into your parents.

The biggest promise was the fake punk movement which still exists to a bit.  Sum 41, Green Day, etc.  What hair metal was to real metal, fake punk was to real punk.  Melodic, good playing, good songs, not necessarily true to form.  Still decent.  Jangle rock exists still, popular in hipster circles.  Alternative went too soft.  Prog went soft too.  Metal went too hard.  I miss the middle.

Just my opinion, but it seems like many of the bigger names these days are well tucked into genres with compositional rule books and limited aural palates. I don't think it's likely that a young Rush or a young Queen or any number of great 60s, 70s or 80s bands could develop into what they became in the current creative environment, at least not while being signed to a large label. Labels don't develop bands anymore. They want polished, familiar, highly marketable product right out of the gate.

 

I don't look as much as I used to, but I'm sure there is creative music emerging from the indieverse if you want to look for it. Valium just posted some above from Bevis Frond and Peter Griffin posted that cool band Khruangbin awhile back. Could you ever imagine a modern major label pushing music that interesting? The Internet makes it possible for an unknown, unsigned band to gain an audience but it's tough to make a living as an independent when you're competing against label giants and thousands of your indie peers for the public's attention and financial support. The best work out there is easily lost in the mix.

The problem is that the proliferation of artists through the internet has killed the idea of having an "audience."  Demographics have been cared up.
Add to that a trend in younger people of being eclectic.  Both artists and listeners straddle genres.  Hell, I love hip-hop, metal, prog, jazz, and some electronic/dance music.  Some of the artists I listen to fuse metal, jazz, and dubstep in a single song.  That's REALLY hard to mass market.

Thing is, before downloading demonetized album sales, major labels used to look for and foster that sort of genre mixing in hopes of creating a new musical trend to excite the public into buying records. But that business model is effed now. Fostering and managing mass trends is something only the majors could do and they don't do it anymore and probably never will again because it requires robust record sales to finance that kind of development. In a lot of ways though we are lucky today because there is a lot of cool indie music to pick from but you may have noticed that much of it is retro in nature. New genres don't develop or catch fire because I believe there is too much fragmentation and under-promotion for that to happen at the indie level.

Nirvana

 

A Perfect Circle

 

Nine Inch Nails

 

G & R

 

White Stripes

 

 

 

Rock music really got going in the 90s, honestly. Must suck to be one of you old fucks stuck in the past.
