I've been a music loving, record collecting, live show attending "freak" for most of my 58 years. This is nothing new to most of you as we are all part of the same club. The thing I love the most is discovering a new artist or record that totally hits my sweet spot. I don't want to start a "get off my lawn kid" thread, but most newer "rock" artists don't speak to me anymore. I try, but I usually end up back in my phone library or collection with the tried and true records and artists I have come to know and love. Like most of you this is not a small group of artists so I always have plenty to listen to. I'm not adverse to newer artists, I just don't dig the newer sounds I hear. I need music to speak to me. There are plenty of artists that are current that I love, they just don't make traditional rock (I lean towards the Americana side of things nowadays). The thing is is still want that feeling I get when I hear something new or something I have been missing. Long story short I was going through a Spotify recommendation playlist and a track come up by an artist I had heard of but never really listened to...Chris Rea's Road to Hell. Loved the track so I played the whole album. Loved the album. Grabbed one of the last couple of copies on Amazon. Loving the record more each play. He kind of fits that Dire Straits vibe. Just great. I have some more exploring to do. My question for you is, what have you discovered lately that you missed the first time around ? What has given you that thrill of discovery? I love those "where have you been all my life" moments. New music doesn't have to be new in 2020...it just needs to be new to me.
