Giving the new Pixies a go.

EDIT: It is not bad! I was pleasantly surprised.

Keeping the K-tel-like life going.

Was the 70s the last relatively innocent point before personal branding really took off or I am confusing personal aging with society’s march?

The cost of making music went down, that’s what killed it.  IMHO 

Every idiot who thought he could make music did.

Hiss Golden Messenger - Terms of Surrender.

This is an artist that Tidal's auto-suggestions turned me on to. Really mellow, folk/alt-rock-ish. Relaxing and nice to have on while working. I'm a fan.

Enjoying.  Supremely mellow, just what I needed right now.

Two more then I'm jumping back to the future. Besides the collections are going South quickly. I think Mikey is on to something. I never hear it mentioned, but was there a far lesser FM killed the more regional AM star? Dusty, the democratization seems a next step (and seemingly could have even reversed the personal branding jump). As aging and personal bias intertwined here, I'll also include a shot of a vehicle I heard many of these songs in - the '74 Plymouth Road Runner. Memory is tricky, but I'm pretty sure everything sounded better on it than my current 2011 Kia Optima (Running-It-Into-the-Ground Edition).

I distinctly remember that leap of better music going from cheesy am shit —Captain & Tenille, Paul Anka, Neil Sedaka— to FM coolness when I got a better portable radio.  I don’t think it had anything to do with am vs fm or audio quality, I just liked the programming of that station better, but in my child’s brain, I thought it was fm.
