Every generation annoys the previous with its louder, faster, more aggressive music.
For the last several years, I've been disappointed in the next generation's music, but because it's boring.
I mean, we had punk and metal and industrial - we didn't necessarily start them, but we sure embraced 'em.
New music has been lame for quite a while. It was placid and didn't go anywhere. It was whiny. I was sad that we had reached some sort of musical pinnacle, and seemed to be coming down the other side.
Then came dubstep. And the cycle continues.
AKA "The Streetbeater." From the Jazz At The Santa Monica Civic '72:
The Postmodern Jukebox Band does a ragtime take on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop."
Scott Bradlee is the brains behind the operation.
A co-worker mentioned how he digs the Allman Brothers, which reminded me of these guys. It’s been a while since I’d listened to the North Mississippi Allstars, and realized that such a thing is a horrible mistake to make. When I first heard their sound, all I could think was that they should be huge, and it bothered me that more people didn’t know about them. Great rocking blues, with some Allman Brothers styling, but sweatier, dirtier, and nastier. From their 2000 album Shake Hands With Shorty, this is the greatest song ever (at least for today), Shake ‘Em On Down.
