Current thoughts on music: I currently am enjoying more different types of music than at any other point in my life, and I am having an absolute blast. As far as trends go I think it’s amazing how our generation’s contribution to “indie rawk”–that is the genres of “chillwave” and “shit-gaze”–are evolving and progressing before our very eyes. I have also recently become more of a folk-y dude than I ever thought possible.

Lowden

Current thoughts on music: I’m disappointed with the trends that the indie community is going through right now. I can’t get behind such lazy genres like chillwave, and support bands that just come off as untalented, lazy & unimaginative. I love my folk/alt-country, and rawk music. I guess it’s not cool to rock anymore? Who knows.
