Episode 51: Dying Genres

Thanks to Colin McLaughlin for stopping by this week! You can listen above, or download HERE.

Topic:

  • “Is a genre dead when it has no new innovations to share?”
  • What genres have become stagnant? Which ones have morphed into something else?
  • The monogenre: are there any bands that only pull influence from their own genre?
  • In an age where the market is oversaturated with bands and music, can a band really exist in a bubble?
  • Fiona Apple: What happens when hecklers take things too far?
  • How much concern should fans have for musicians? How should they express it, if at all?
