For the last twenty years, what has been called "country" by most people has basically been "songs that kinda sound like Hotel California".

As far as I'm concerned, the last time country music has felt vivid and interesting was during the short-lived "alt.country" movement.
I'm the G-man and I approve this message.

This reminds me of an article I read recently that pointed out that, technically, Mumford and Sons was closer to "real" country than what gets played on country radio.

Re: Taylor Swift, Why The Hate?

I can't say I'm a fan of her music, but...

I worked five years at a job where I went around to different stores and counted their inventory, so I spent a huge amount of time in places like CVS, or Stop & Shop, or Sears completely subject to their radio.

Every time Taylor Swift came on, it meant that none of the thousands of options that were much, much worse came on. No Michael Buble, no whiny falsetto boy. For three minutes, my ears will not be in horrible pain. So I owe her a debt of gratitude.

I think Taylor Swift just wasn't ready to handle the tabloids when she became famous.

To me 'country' means Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams. This new country-pop is just a bunch of fake cowboys singing about America and small towns being awesome and blonde teenagers singing about guys being horny.

I actually like her songs. It's only when I see her music videos that I get a negative vibe. *shrugs*

Not that I think Abercrombie should've been selling it in the first place, but... 130 signatures? Really, that's all they could get?

Swift is an artist I've never paid much attention to. When I've heard her music, she sounds like she's either tuneless or has a very narrow vocal range. I've heard a few of the songs off her recent album on the radio recently. Sonically, they remind me of Liz Phair's work when she went "pop" with her eponymous album.

Which kinda makes me want Swift to do an album of Liz Phair covers. Maybe Exile in Guyville in full. Swift singing "Fuck and Run," yeah. I'd buy that.

Westboro is against her? I may have to re-evaluate my views of her music. As much as I don't like it, she's not a whore.

Re: Taylor Swift, Why The Hate?

There's nothing I don't like about Taylor Swift. End of story.

Okay, not quite the end: anyone who writes their own material automatically gets a lot of points and ranks folks who are primarily performers. The successes of people like Swift come, as Harlan Ellison once put it, out of the ends of their fingers.

The press really needs to stop giving this handful of idiots free publicity. It only encourages them.

Re: Taylor Swift, Why The Hate?

There is no such thing as "real" country music, and there never has been. It has always been about having the "country" aesthetic, but it has never been "real," no matter how big your cowboy hats, and pick-up trucks are.
