Don't use the radio as a barometre of what is good music. There are a lot of indie groups out there that are pretty amazing. It's all a matter of you willing to find them.

Try http://www.pitchfork.com for good music info.

ETA that it should go to pitchforkmedia.com, but in my first post, I sent it there. :lol:

You know, _. I was gonna go in there and fix the link, but it's much funnier if I just leave it alone.

That's a classic, _. An instant classic.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

I agree with Eddy. All new music licks balls. If all these bands that no one has ever heard of were really any good, people would have heard of them by now. I know popularity doesn't necessarily equal quality, but if you're any good, you'll get popular. Basically, I think you can be popular without being good, but I don't think you can be good without being popular. Fuck music.

And __, that was one hell of a Freudian slip. :roll:

It's not that simple though. For a good band to get exposure, money and willingness on the part of a record exec has to be there. If anyone ever heard of The Wrens' messed up story of how long it took them to put out Meadowlands, you'd know it's not easy for the good bands to get national exposure. That's why most of those bands play in small clubs, cafes, or whathaveyou.

Popular is relative. A lot of the smaller indie bands that haven't made it big have a sound that doesn't really suit mass-taste -- but yet a lot of people really like them. So they're popular is certain circles, but Tammie Maye 14 Year Old In Phoenix Record Buying Public wouldn't get exposed to them.

I agree with that, and also that a lot of the more cutting edge bands, who try to be more experimental or ambitious in their music might not resonate with the general public as you said. The general public has a mindset into how certain music might be played, and are not open to new and innovative interpretations of it.

Nice use of The Wrens as an example, _. I love The Wrens.
