The system is slanted toward artist who are the least ground breaking. Out of those 115,000 new albums how many do we as consumers get to decide yea or nay?
I listen to very little pop other than what my 7 year plays. I try and keep in the loop of innovation and it can be easy with things like Last.fm. I also try and keep up with jazz and other experimental music.

With home digital recording every little chump in the world can sound like the con artist recording artist of yesterday..The great and talented artist have been pushed out of the game by the sheer numbers of posers...the market via the internet is flooded with mediocre jerks...and the great ones simply have gone home.

If that sounds bad, or isn't any good...I don't want or need change.

I would put these guys in the Jazz genre but they are definitely innovative, especially the drummer. I first saw him when he was about 18, glad to see he is doing well.
