It has been multiple years of me trashing the radio, thinking that music was awful for a long time. I began thinking that it was my own bitterness or some underlying reason of jealousy or something. Im glad it was none of that, its that the cylce of crap has finally come around.
Just stoked to see that "artists" like Flo-Rida, or Young Jeezy arent dominating the radio, and that people like London Grammar, or Ed Sheeran, even though they are also ultra mainstream now, they are there for the reason that I always hope people make it there. Sure it is still a crap shoot of popularity and connections, but at least the talent is there to show how those connections may have happened. Rather than being, my favorite Dave Navarro T-Shirt that I saw "Talentless, But Well Connected"
So this post is mainly just to give a shout out to those whose music is currently being played that could be heard in a few years, 10 years, 50 years and still have some musical power to it(timeless), rather than current fad that you hear in 3 years and vaguely remember it and realize it may have been a hit then, but it is far from a hit.
So, thank you......
Florence & The Machine
Even, Rihanna, Kanye, and Paul
And I feel like that is just scratching the surface, this list of people to appreciate poured out in just a minute or two. Where a few years back I would have struggled to make a list half that length.
