Is it just me? Is there something wrong with music these days? Maybe I'm just getting picky as the years go on, but it seems that there is some kind of gap. Either the music is just completely horrid and disgusting, or it is a masterpiece.
On one hand you have things like Gucci and Flokka... the most retarded combination of made up words and mind numbing, thought suppressing beats. You have your Rebecca Blacks and you Justin Biebers. You have your overplayed radio artists that record labels have invested millions into.
There is another hand though, and this is where the gap becomes quite clear. You have a huge uprising of some of the most amazing sounds in the form of electronic music (and I don't mean Skrillex). You have countless indie bands, one to fit every one of your musical fancies. You have the most amazing musicians that the world will ever see, but the world will never see (or hear) them.
Big record labels, like most big businesses, will always fund the suppression of free thinking and beauty, and in this case the expression of those qualities through music. It is truly sad. So join me in doing what you guys already do. Turn off the radio, turn on your computer, and experience everything that the musical world has to offer you. Partake in the adventure that is discovery, and do it before their reach extends into the Internet.
