Great article in the Independent :

A new wave of people in their late teens and early twenties, working as producers and releasing their own radio-ready music. That shouldn't surprise us given the support for 1Xtra. Old people like me can voice their disatisfaction with old regime of promoters determining what we hear on the radio. But young people are actually starting to do something about it for themselves.

Good news that it is bringing originality and diversity. Perhaps at long last, radio content is going "open source" ?

Meanwhile, Tori Amos tells us that we should get used to older women playing rock music ( also in the same newspaper ). As long as they're good and can play a proper rock rhythm, OK !

Some of those names sound suspiciously like something out of the Jimmy Kimmel sketch where they interview festivalgoers about fictitious bands...

Good. I just hope that their tracks are not hyper-compressed like the majority of current productions.
