One thing that scares me is that with the lack of great bands to emerge on the scene in the last 25 years, who is going to influence the next generation?

That scares me too. I'm afraid it's just going to get worse. The music I have written, have started to write, or would like to write, is inspired by Brian and other great 60s artists. Hopefully there are other like-minded musicians of this generation that have a similar mission of reviving the classic sounds. That's my goal. Brian Setzer did something along the lines, but 50s rockabilly with the Stray Cats and 40s swing with his orchestra.

Yeah, you'll always have a few bands / artists out there doing throwback style music.  I just think they'll be fewer and farther between.

Unfortunately, I think you're right.

I'm tired as copulate, but:

Gold -- Brian Wilson & Nate Ruess (shouldn't that be "Reuss"?) -- I really like this one, including young Mr. Ruess's vocal. It has a place of honor on my "No Pier Pressure Plus Minus" playlist.

As kds said, the others are pretty interchangeable. I don't think any of them are terrible, but none of them stand out for me.

Silver -- Maggie Rogers
Bronze -- Capital Cities
Pewter -- Emilie Sande


Weezer, "(Girl We Got A) Good Thing" and "Endless Bummer", both 2016




Oddnesse, "Somewhere Somehow", 2016

Since some of you have compared this week to "slim pickins" and a sense of doom and gloom, first a pep talk:




...and your survival kit for the week:




bonnie -- Good heavens! I'll wash your mouth out with soap 'til you blow bubbles out your butt!  [nono]

Al -- I'll give your week some contemplation and return with my choices.

Come on Blueboarders - have some faith.  It's out there.

If you listen to this playlist below - I may be in agreement with you (Miley, Bruno, Bieber, K Perry, Selina G., Adele, Ed Sheeran, Swift-herself, Meg Trainor, Kesha - those likes and more):
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLa90WIPVNWM-NxD-cqIEvRyUbSTXjEKJy
(One lady's playlist ^)

Lisa gets demerits for bringing in clips from NOT this decade - but rebounds with a good try to take the doom and gloom straight on.  Remember, it's ALL about THIS decade. 

It does NOT have to be the pop stuff either, so bring in some Indie, Bonnie (no language censorship here but song puts me to sleep plus Lisa is bringing soap). 

Thanks for the votes: Lee, Larry, Cindy, kds (decade comebacks), Jenny.  Let's find some good things from this decade.  Day one is in for the week!

There's been a few new things I liked this century, but nothing I've loved. That being said, here's the votes.

GOLD:  Brian Wilson w/Nate Reuss. No photo finish needed, winner by a mile (or 2).
 
SILVER:  Emeli Sande. Not my style of music at all, but extra points for interesting instrumentation.

BRONZE:  Capital Cities. Did nothing for me.

TIN/PEWTER:  Maggie Rogers. Did less than nothing.

The tried and true:
Ray Davies - Rock'n'Roll Cowboys (from the album "Americana", 2017).

He doesn't really rock much these days (a couple of festival appearances the last couple summers), but Ritchie Blackmore is still putting out music with his medieval folk rock group, Blackmore's Night.  It's not quite Purple or Rainbow, but on a crisp fall night, with a goblet of mead, this music works pretty well.

I like this brand spankin' new song some...  It caught my ear Wednesday while I was driving to the golf course.



An arrangement...a tune...lyrics...real instruments...and some talent.  Roll it all into a song and...just like clockwork...it works.  Just a nice little Pop song that doesn't follow the formula most traveled over these last BORING 25 years of Top 30 stagnation.

Me too.

IMNSHO, there's too much good music from recent years to keep up with.

Beck, "Turn Away", Morning Phase, 2014


Surfer Blood, "Take It Easy", Astro Coast, 2010


The School, "All I Want From You Is Everything", Wasting Away and Wondering, 2015


Sufjan Stevens, "All of Me Wants All of You", Carrie and Lowell, 2015


Wilco, "I Might", The Whole Love , 2011

Here's another band I almost forgot about - Purson.  They sort of have a retro sound, but I think their take it in was pretty original.  

Sadly, further proving it's really difficult for new, good bands to get off the ground today, they recently split up after only two LPs and an EP.

Al, I've found plenty of new artists and songs from this decade, some of which were first recommended or posted here. 

I'll be back later with a number of newer artists and/or songs from 2010-2017.

Good music across genres is alive and well -- you just have to look harder to find it these days!

Tom,

"Good music across genres is alive and well -- you just have to look harder to find it these days!"

And that is the TRUTH!

Thanks for the votes also, t
-bed!

I honestly didn't think that Brian and Nate would be sweeping this thing - but I've been wrong before [smile]

Two of my very favourite indie bands, with songs that they have both been released this year.

TOPS "Petals".



Wolf Alice "Don't Delete the Kisses". 




And something a little more mainstream.  Avicii. "Wake Me Up" and "Waiting for Love".
