New Perspective



As of recently I have taken a new yet familiar direction with my taste in music and have returned to the vocals, strings and snares of Indie, Alternative and Punk Rock. It was not a conscious decision but one that I gradually made by listening to a lot of dub-step (Seven Lions) last year and now this year mostly listening to rock. I was assisted by the huge amount that I had at my fingertips with the Google Play All Access Music App and Alt Nation on SiriusXM. With both of the sources feeding my desire to ween myself off of mainstream Rap and underground Hip-Hop it came very easily. Now I will say this; I miss Rap and Hip-Hop but it has been such a relief and pleasure to listen to music from Arcade Fire, Bastille, Catchfish and the Bottle Men, Sleeper Agent, Cage the Elephant and so many more. I would have to say that Rock music definitely has a nostalgic feel to it for me and it puts me in a better mood and mind state than Rap and Hip-Hop. Ignorance and aggression seem at an all time high in those genres and I had enough of it. The funny thing is that I enjoy those genres that much more when I do listen to them briefly, cause I always find myself tuning the radio back to Alt Nation or my Rock playlist.

All in all think outside of the box or your norm from time to time and expand your mind man!
