Josh Claybourn Confirms His Coolness

Josh writes a rave review of Nickel Creek, a terrific trio of young acoustic whiz kids who you should get to know. Here’s a link to their first album, ingeniously titled “Nickel Creek“.

Josh makes a point that’s long troubled me as well. Music, like so many other things in the arts, used to be an expression that grew up among peoples from the heart. So much music now is simply a soulless product, manufactured (as so much culture is manufactured) by soulless technicians who stick pretty faces on the label. The pretty faces very often couldn’t create music themselves to save their souls. It’s lovely to hear these incredibly gifted young musicians play their hearts out, rather than the artificial technological twaddle that is pressed down on us by the Manufacturers of Culture.
