just found a bunch of old selfos of me with blonde hair, which is interesting, cos i have no recollection of ever HAVING blonde hair
@jk @gemlog @envgen yeah that's a good theory. still I keep wondering if I just got older and grumpy or if there is really some whole new music scene or genre that I'm totally missing out... but I think the last time I heard a sound that truly made me go "I never heard this sound before" was dubstep wobbles... circa 2010?!
@jk @hisham_hm @envgen That's true, but I've been enjoying a lot of music that isn't normally heard in north america for some years now. Weirdly, 10 years ago I'd never heard of Manu Chao even! How about music from Mali? Raï music? Electro swing isn't that old really. BadBadNotGood jazz... And 'gypsy rock' I don't know what to call it, but could be like gypsy hill. Or even w/e this is https://hooktube.com/watch?v=HUMuqAVCq4Q or https://hooktube.com/watch?v=w-DkkpGk5h0 + heaps of new-to-me from central and sud america, france...
@gemlog @jk @envgen there are always new styles coming up, definitely. I'm in Brazil and the current popular music style here definitely did not exist in 2010... but it's a mix of folk Brazilian countryside music with American country music (which is itself usually at least 10 years behind American pop as far as stylistic musical elements go).
