I’ve been interested in listening to, grooving to, and sharing new music with people for over 30 years. I’ve lost some abilities in this – both loosing people to share with and loosing avenues to discover new stuff. I’m starting to find new avenues. Now I’m trying to find more community to share with and to give me insight to what they are listening to. This blog is my first attempt, in what I hope to be a series of attempts. We’ll see what happens.
Honestly I think, over the past 20 years, there’s been less new stuff worthy of loving than is acceptable. I know there’s stuff I’ve missed. And right now, right or wrong, I’m sensing a spree of new bands, a new generation, and that excites me. Optimism!
Almost as important as “new music” is “new-to-me music”. I’ve picked up on things 20-, 30-, 40-years old that I’d never heard before, and I’d like to be sharing some of that. .I’ll try to understand how some new stuff relates to some old stuff.
Here’s your chance to join a new community, listen to stuff in your living room. Send in comments on what you see and send in ideas for the rest of us. It’ll be our little community for noise.
