I decided to write this short blog after I thought about the statements I made here.
I hear a lot of people complain about there not being any CDS worth buying coming out, and blaming the lack of CD sales on that. Well, I think the lack of CD sales is more comlicated than that...but more importantly I think I have a cure for the pain they feel as they anticipate their next favorite album.
There are a couple things you can do:
1) Open your mind to new genres or styles of music that you haven't previously been open to or perhaps haven't even been aware of.
2) Open your ears to music of the past. Find out what bands/musicians inspired your favorite bands/musicians.
Don't believe that the only good music that can be created is in the few genres you enjoy. There are plenty of incredible musicians putting out music that, for many reasons, simply hasn't reach your ears.
If you really have a passion for good music then I highly suggest you start listening to new stuff.
IF YOU WANT SOMETHING NEW THEN STOP SEARCHING PUREVOLUME. I would say Myspace, also, but there are actually many, many different genres on display there.
Check out something that isn't so indie scene oriened like Jamie Liddell, Rocco Deluca & the Burden, Nickel Creek, Imogen Heap, and on and on and on. I promise you that there is some really good music out there!
