The Death of Your Music

Posted: May 31, 2005 in Uncategorized

Chuck Klosterman of Esquire wrote a good article about expanding your musical horizons.  This supports my belief that people in their 30’s & 40’s have simply given up on finding new music.  New music isn’t necessarily that much worse, you’ve just stopped trying.  Regardless, of your age you probably feel that the music industry peeked in the decade from your age of 16 to 26.  After that, music coincidentally took a down turn and you haven’t tried many new bands since.

I do believe the music of the 2000’s has been a bit saturated and corporate.  A lot of what is played on the radio is identical from city to city and seems like watered-down rehashes of the same formula.  However, there are still quite a few gems out there if you’re still willing to spend the time to look.


Check out the May 2005 Esquire article here.

Just for trivia’s sake, I happened to have the Black Keys, Secret Machines and TV On The Radio.   I didn’t know most of the other music mentioned in the article.
