A guide to getting into seemingly inaccessible artists.
In the coming weeks I will be adding a new feature to my humble blog. I’ll be picking artists who are a bit hard for the average joe to decipher. You know, those artists or groups who everybody seems to be swooning over on the internet, but when you hit YouTube to check ’em out you’re just left scratching your head and shrugging. We’ve all been there.
Well, don’t worry. You’ll be bobbing your head and tapping your feet to artists like Tom Waits and Animal Collective before you can say “Bruce Springsteen sucks ass!”. The key is knowing which part of each artists career to start listening to. Surprisingly enough, it’s almost never the beginning of the artist’s catalogue you should jump into. That’s usually what’s so confusing about the process.
As a matter of fact, I think I’ll start with Tom Waits. Yeah, that’s what I’ll do. You just watch!
