25 songs about the future of music - Mar 24th, 2017

LISTEN NOW  "This is what we talk about now, the music-makers and the music-listeners both. Not the fine details of genre and style — everyone, allegedly, listens to everything now — but the networks of identity that float within them. Maybe decades ago you could aim your songs at a mass market, but music does not really have one of those anymore. Artists have to figure out whom they’re speaking to and where they’re speaking from. The rest of us do the same. For better or worse, it’s all identity now."*   Listening Lyrics  included a Davis native NEIL HEATON and his new release "These Times" - hear it here http://neilheaton.bandcamp.com/track/these-times"
