At which point did you stop listening to new music?

Post by Jakob » Fri Dec 07, 2018 3:37 am

For me it was probably 2013ish that i stopped trying to keep up with what was coming out each year.

I still find a couple of new (for me) bands that get into each year, but it normally happens in bursts of pure enjoyment and then i can listen to these artists for the rest of the year no prob.

Also i've started to listen to radio programs a lot more. I don't feel the need to dig up the artists afterwards, but can simply enjoy each program as something new.

This year i've listened to Gal Canta Caymmi Press this

Also started listening to Thelonious Monk with orchestra rather than just solo or his quartets/quintets.
Also this

And turn it up for both of them, they sound great ;)

hi jakob, good to see you back on here... and thanks for the links i'll check them out. so to answer your question... i've stopped listening to music at various times in my life... part of the 80's was the first time... i gave up on music for a period then came back to it in the 90's and i'd say in the last 5 years i've no listened to that much new bands... i no longer have the time or i guess interest to do it. I still listen to my favourite bands from time to time and i listen to a lot of pop from the 60's and 70's but that's about it. i'm not saying i will continue with this but if i am honest the bands / musicians that i have liked over the years are no longer releasing music as good as they used to so i don't really know what will generate that spark again...but who knows

Hello ! for me it was 2006 when i moved from seattle to southern Mexico.
just no sources for access - now that i'm back in the ussa - i still enjoy reading about
"new" bands - usually in the context of reviews of upcoming local shows & reviews of shows that have just gone off.
but i'm not listening to any great radio stations where i used to get a lot of exposure...,
and i'm not going to live shows much at all - where i would often discover new bands
in the opening slots for the headliners - just kinda lost it on those fronts....

...So Jakob ?

how the hell are ya ?
survived the world "Cruise" ?
hope it was more fun than disaster ?
and i'm sure you have experiences and memories that will last a life time

just wanted to say hello - i've missed ya - at least we shared names of bands
that the other might benefit from...,

and you were always kind and a gentle soul
not a raving loonatick
there is a lot to be said for that approach

Hey Skwitz!!!

I'll have to make one of your ramble posts about my trip at some point ;)
Honestly, though, i love it when you do that - and while it's fun enough to hear about Jeff Beck, i get as much pleasure from the way you write about it. That syntax is something special, don't ever change :D

On topic(!): You actually got me into the melvins years back, and if it hadn't been for your endorsement i prolly wouldn't have found a gem such as Honky. I just missed them live this summer, what a bummer!! One of those bands i'd really like to see kick the shit out of set :lol: Been too long since i've been to a proper heavy concert.
I'll check the song out later, on my way to a date with a very sweet girl (from london no less).

And yeah don't talk to me about the toob, spend way too much time there :lol: Such a weird place.
Example: a nusrat fateh ali kahn comment section is nothing but comments like "like this comment if you listen in nov. 2018"
FULL OF THEM.
And sometimes there's albums where every comment is about how youtube randomly got them here and this is now their favourite music.
What a magical world that is.
