The Indie Landfill rebuttal

The term Ďlandfill indieí is pure snobbery from people who donít know how to have fun

Last week VICE dredged up the term, an endeavour so sneeringly reductive itís like your Grandad listing the relative merits of each Pokťmon

I need to start checking out some of the bands on that list I wasnít aware of

Interesting profile Rolling Stone did on Linda Martell, this and the Toots piece have been really well done..

Country's Lost Pioneer
Linda Martell was the first black female solo artist to play the Grand Ole Opry, but her promising country career was plagued by racism and ended almost as quickly as it began. Fifty years after her only album, she's speaking out

Listening to her album on a evil steaming service and while the type of record I don't  than I usually listen to, I'm enjoying it

Rolling Stone just updated their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time

When we first did the RS 500 in 2003, people were talking about the ďdeath of the album.Ē The album óand especially the album release ó is more relevant than ever. Of course, it could still be argued that embarking on a project like this is increasingly difficult in an era of streaming and fragmented taste. But that was part of what made rebooting the RS 500 fascinating and fun; 86 of the albums on the list are from this century, and 154 are new additions that werenít on the 2003 or 2012 versions. The classics are still the classics, but the canon keeps getting bigger and better.
