I’ve realized that I’m painfully out of the loop when it comes to music. Since I don’t drive regularly anymore, I don’t get daily radio exposure (not that the same 5 songs aren’t played on all Clear Channel stations anyway, but you know). I listen to the same things that have been on my ipod since, oh, 2008 probably? Literally the discography of Britney Spears spliced with grunge.
All this is to say that nope, not into this weird fiddle/banjo/upbeat/indie-gone mainstream thing that’s all over now. Mumford, FUN, whatever else that sounds like it was made for the purpose of advertising or a movie trailer…nah. Not for me. I have no shade for anyone who does enjoy it, you do you, but where has all the angst gone?! I miss you, minor chords. I’d be totally fine if music stopped being made after like 2000. Probably.
If you need me I’ll be in the corner listening to the Empire Records soundtrack on loop.
