I was hopelessly giving up on music. And then, over the past 24 months, the post-Internet soundwave of young artists knocked me over. They’ve known not a world of mainstream radio and MTV videos. They’ve known not vinyl, lest cassettes, lest CDs. They know digital, they understand open-source, they comprehend music outside of record label dealings and retail store classifications. They are the today and tomorrow of music.
These are the sorts of leaders I’m talking about. Alexander Spit, Dom Kennedy, Lana Del Rey, Hanni El Khatib, Death Grips, Zoo Kid (or King Krule or whatever his name is now), and maybe most of all, Trash Talk.
“AWAKE,” the first video from hardcore band Trash Talk’s upcoming EP out October 11th.Pre-order the EP HERE.
