    Mogwai are the only decent ones in that list and I saw them about 20 years ago - I don't think they qualify as new.

    I discovered St Vincent last year at All Points East festival and she's been ever present on my playlists since.

    If you're a fan of dirty rock n' roll with a Kings of Leon twist, Dead Sara are a band I listen to a lot. In fact, going to put them on now. I'd recommend their last EP Temporary Things Taking Up Space for quick listening. My favourite track of theirs is Weatherman. Emily Armstrong's vocals are gargantuan.

    I tend to stick the same bands on rotation nowadays, so it's rare for me to get into 'new' music by choice. In my opinion there hasn't been a genre-defining or creating age of music since the turn of the millenium, in the same way blues, metal, pop, funk, grunge, Bon Jovi etc literally defined culture the previous century. Could be the age of computers and tech progress making things sanitised and monotonous, could be that I'm becoming an old fart that just defined New Jersey's finest as a musical genre.

    Its purely the industry is risk adverse and the "true new music" only comes with the underground scene

    Its toxic currently and won't change anytime soon

    I saw Foals on Saturday and they are great, but they kept on talking about how long its took to get there

    Their support bands were quote odd and quirky and IMO will go nowhere as their too odd for radio and won't build a fan base

    Its actually really quite boring now in music and its probably why I'm collecting old bands on vinyl than nothing new :(((

    Broaden your horizons maybe and listen to some different genres of music from the past/world music if you don't like modern stuff - via a playlist on Spotify of a restaurant i visited whilst on holiday in Costa Rica a few years back I've mostly been listening to afrobeat, reggae and various latin musical genres - but then i tend to only casually listen to music these days

    My thoughts as well, there does not seem to be anything that is new ( or not been done before) that is really worth crossing the road for. As for vinyl i have always kept my collection and get them out whenever i am at home, failing that i have over 900 songs on my i/pod which goes everywhere with me.

    It's not just the industry (although that's a major cause). We also have a generation growing up who'd rather spend their nights in the gym than in a pub or a club.

    Music (and especially live music) are intertwined with drugs and alcohol. Any generation that aspires to owning a Prius and spends good pub time in a gym has no hope of living the sex, drugs & rock n roll lifestyle that good musical generations (if not good music itself) are based on.

    New?!!!

    That’s ‘bleeding edge’ by my new music policy.

    Heard something the other day about music “nowadays” being built for the Spotify playlists. i.e. every track needs to have a chill remix, a salsa remix, a rock remix, a gym/driving/tossing/spooning/coughing/ remix, so it makes as many ‘mood’ playlists as possible and gets its plays that way.

    fudge that. I bought 3 vinyl ‘long players’ yesterday by way of reaction.

    Kasper Bjørke Quartet is excellent. Been digging the Ross From Friends record from last year lately too.

    Woah now, so Lighthouse family isn't cutting edge? I don't think I can keep with the trends, "high" was a fudging tune and still is.
