My New Least Favorite Band (An Occasional Series)

The Lumineers. Who you may have caught on Saturday Night Live this weekend, stinking up the place.



Jeebus, first Mumford and Sons and now these guys. Is there something in the water all of a sudden that's causing really lame earnest folk rock bands?

It's OK, not annoying like Mumford & Sons.

Still most everything the younger generation of musicians create is rococo including this.

ROTP(lumber)

Bruce Springsteen has a lot to answer for.

Left me wondering.....

Did people in the sixties consider Bob Dylan "The next Bob Dylan?"

Bob still has a lot of mileage left. Actually these guys have sort of opened a window on him, at least for me.

to me, less bob/bruce and more like neo-hobo psuedo-woody which is going around alot these days. i think it's kinda annoying but i'm not in my 20's anymore so not the target audience

"but i'm not in my 20's anymore so not the target audience"

So people like The Beatles and Dylan and the Stones and say anybody uh...good...were targeted for who, 40 year olds?
