I wish I could say I was Keith McDougall

October 26th 2009 02:18
I wish I were Keith McDougall, the former author of this blog. He is such an eloquent writer. I mean, I believe I am proficient, but he made the words sing. Reading the blog was like actually listening to the music he wrote about. I started a blog a couple weeks ago, and then had the opportunity to take over this one. I transferred my posts over to this page (my posts start from "Just Starting A Blog") and now I'm going to attempt to fill the shoes of a great opinionist of music. First of all, I am from Chicago, not Gothenburg, Sweden, so most of the music I know comes from the windy city, which is not nearly as exotic. But there are a lot of absolutely incredible bands from my home-state. I love the Chicago music scene.

I'm also more into just straight indie than indie-pop. And there is a HUGE difference between the two. Or at least there is a huge difference between most of the bands Keith and I label as these two separate genres. Not that I don't like his music. Its good. Just not what I normally listen to. But I guess that doesn't matter much. All that really matters is that I write meaningful, interesting shit, regardless of genre. Which is exactly what I intend to do.

Haha thank you so much Keith. I'm glad I have your blessing.

By the way, if you ever happen to read this, I absolutely loved the Tough Alliance post. Especially the parts about piano vamps. I might try to incorporate some of that sound into my music (when my band actually starts legitimately practicing). I wonder if I could vamp a melodica...
