My Music Monday
I'm sure the 60s, 70s and 80s had the same problem. So it's no surprise that the trend continues.
I don't know if it's a cultural thing or a business one: let's fast track our success by sounding like someone else who already carved a way with this sound.
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. And I'm not current enough in today's music to know who the originators might be and who are the followers. I do know with Alt Rock station on Sirius XM, I hear like-minded songs from groups like Nothing But Thieves and Joywave.
Sir Sly doesn't branch off much of those last two - and it works. I don't know anything about the rest of their music, and truth be told, while I keep this on in the car, it hasn't made enough of an impact to make me want to take a deeper dive into their oeuvre.
