The Current Trend In Popular Music ... (Page 2)
Anne aka Mags: Check out these very different styles of music...
Bulgarian women (check the tight harmonies)
Tuvan Throat singing.
Ladysmith Black Mambazao
Ladysmith Black Mambazao & Paul Simon (mixing traditional with contemporary)
Anne aka Mags: Actually SITS, Bon Scott used to play recorder in a Project band in the 60s/70s before he became the lead singer of AC/DC. REALLY different, but 'popular' in its time. Many of these Project bands produced concept albums.
Robot_Fox: Fleet Foxes I believe really continue to produce great music. Nice melodies and very simple yet beautiful lyrics.
And dont give me that, "uh, Crosby, Still & Nash already did it" shtick, it really is stupid.
If you havent heard them, take a listen.
While that may be a trend, that's not the sort of trend this thread was premised on.
