I'm righting a essay on music authenticity (having no experience or music knowledge in any way. FML) and was wondering how you guys determine whether a band, group or individuals music would be consisted authentic?
Well for me I'm often reminded of other things I've heard when listening to music. So if music presents some idea that I've never heard, I think, "Wow, that's original".
Whether or not you think something is authentic is relative to what you've heard. For example, you could say, "Wow, the Black Keys are really authentic", but if you've never heard the White Stripes, you wouldn't know that TBK leeched their sound from WS.
Most bands draw from music that they've heard and liked, so I don't think most...

quality response! I'll use the black keys/white stripes as a point of reference thank you. but on the concept of covers? would you consider a band that covers another but in a different genre to be inauthentic? Say an R&B artist performing a R&B version of a elton john song
Of courses not being the original song writer puts it on the side of inauthentic but with a sufficient change in genre and the relevant expectation that come with that genre would it side on the more authentic side of music?
what artists does charlie listen to?
Pablo >> My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Can we all agree on this?
Has anyone on /mu/ ever heard this album? I didn't see it in the catalog and I think it's pretty good. It's called In the Aeroplane Over the Sea if your interested.
Everyone should also check out this album. It's really good despite being made a relatively unknown band.
>bassist plays double bass
>it's a pop band
This is so much better than MBV
Hey /mu/ I'm throwing a party for the first time in my life tomorrow
Can you give me music that will make the bitches grind up on eachother and hopefully result in girls getting topless
You do dance at concerts, don't you /mu/?
I wouldn't say I "dance" in the traditional sense...I just sort of move erratically to the music and the tone of the musicians' playing.
Honestly, I can move to any music. I move a bit at live jazz exhibitions.
I don't get it
Why does Pitchfork think this is 10/10?
ITT: Albums that tricked you into thinking a genre would be good.
Post cool band name ideas. I have no clue what I should name my band. I've thought about collective imagination but it seems cheesy. We're a psych/indie/punk band.
what are some good blues compilations?
