@modified: I just now learned of Moses Sumney because of his feature on James Blake's new album Assume Form. I'm listening to his KEXP performance and he is very good! I have no hate for the mainstream, but over the past couple weeks I've been looking at some artists that have been less in the spotlights and more in the critics' eye, and it's been a lot of fun to just listen to both 'scenes' side by side. Little bit of Ariana Grande, little bit of Sharon Van Etten, so to speak. It's all love.

Exhibit #7


There are incredible musicians out there. Yes, impressive kids.
That's the huge paradox. But the majors have left
long-term career building plans molding in their vaults.

Jeezus. What is that.

Some sub-sub-sub-standard Stevie?
A little funky riff does not a song make.

...Tuxedo + Gavin Turek was for those who miss 1980s boogie, not to go up against Stevie Wonder. Hiatus Kaiyote, Anderson .Paak, Jacob Collier etc. are as good as the great Stevie Wonder.

How is making soundalike popular music from decades ago "modern"? That's the same thing as orchestras performing music from guys who have been dead for hundreds of years or the kinds of singers/bands who perform at Renaissance Faires or a polka band. Even that's not really new either. Performers have done retro in the past.

1970s: Sha Na Na, Blues Brothers, Grease soundtrack
1980s: Stray Cats, the big sales of oldies soundtracks like Dirty Dancing & Big Chill
1990s: Lenny Kravitz, Harry Connick Jr, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Brand New Heavies, Jamiroquai, Three Tenors, Tony! Toni! Toné!, Natalie Cole's duets album with her father
2000s: Michael Bublé, Josh Groban, Mediæval Bæbes, Landau Eugene Murphy, Bruno Mars, Postmodern Jukebox

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

It isn't. That one was for the people who say kids nowadays can't make music like they did in the 1980s. They can.

They shot two of these videos for the price of one on VHS in Los Angeles. Prince used to do that...

Yes. The members of Tuxedo, also Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One, are all talented singers, musicians, writers, producers who have done many other projects. They are on the Stones Throw label that has put out some of the most innovative music of the last two decades.

Hiatus Kaiyote drummer Perrin Moss (aka Clever Austin) just announced his solo debut last night:

Georgia Ann Muldrow (Stones Throw) featured on one track. New Hiatus Kaiyote album should come this year, with an Anderson. Paak guest appearance.

Pop music is and what it's always been. It's geared and marketed to a 13 year old girl. And you know what? These kids out here LOVE it. Every generation always disses the music that comes after them, me included. But like the Dr GC so succinctly says, whatever the older folks hate...that's gonna be the next thang.

I agree. I heard this for decades now and I am not even 40 yet. And the 13-year-old girl right now is going to say the same thing years from now that modern day music is bad.

But good human invention about recording is that you can listen to the oldies at anytime to relieve so I guess us older people have to let the preteens and teens have their time. Or we can listen to new music from the artists we grew up on.

I really like Tuxedo.They totally capture the feel and the vibe of early 80s R&B/funk.It's just about time for a new album from them.I hope they got something planned.

Speaking for myself,I like hearing “new” acts that have an “old sound”.Tuxedo does a good job with that.
