Whatever happened to indie?

Musical Genres have always been adaptable. RnB used to be an old black dude with a cheap electric guitar, emo used to be slightly more tuneful hardcore punk and dance used to involve legwarmers and perms. Words adapt, take on new meanings, and genres change there boundaries to head in different directions.

Indie music now can mean anything from near unlistenable noise freakouts, to beard stroking folk to underground hip hop to dreadful populist dross like Coldplay and Scouting for Girls. Indie no longer means independent or alternative.

This blog is about good songwriters. This includes everything from alternative fringe artists making original music, mainstream artists who actually disserve their success and classic artists who are still popular and influential today. I also blog about films and culture and I hope you enjoy.
