The widow is gathering nettles for her children's dinner; a perfumed seigneur, delicately lounging in the Oeil de Boeuf, hath an alchemy whereby he will extract the third nettle and call it rent. ~ Carlyle
Going back a few posts to the "indy" question...Indie can mean anything these days. To me, indie means rock, pop, and folk bands that are usually on a smaller label and/or have the freedom to experiment beyond the radio-ready demands of mainstream artists.
However, if you ask Spotify or most magazines these days, "indie" means electronic gimmicky pop music that is as derivative and homogenized as the mainstream pop acts or (often electronic) folk-y music like Bastille and Mumford and Sons. Basically, it's all about electronic dance-y music right now, even when it comes to folk and rock music.

This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner

yes, this really is how we make our living.
I've been reading up lately on Led Zeppelin's dubious history with plagiarism and it is discouraging. There are some interesting compilations on YouTube with selections of Zeppelins music and the songs they came from. Some are questionable (coming from someone who isn't a music expert), but some are almost one for one copies. Apparently the biggest problem is that Zeppelin didn't credit anyone and pay royalties for using their words/music (like the Stones did). It is really disappointing as someone who has long liked Zeppelin.

I've been listening to the new Ray Lamontaigne, but I feel guilty about it. It's like listening to the stuff I grew up with in the seventies, but pretending I'm hip.
Having said that, I'm really enjoying it.
Choo got it, dude.
