"In the indie world, it's been a trend to obscure your message;
people over-use effects to cover up what they're trying to say.
To me, that feels really noncommittal."
"When I was a kid, I liked Boyz II Men's II because it made me happy and sounded cool. Now, I think it's amazingly well-crafted music."
thissmallplanet/newmusictoday says: at first listen, i prefer the old guitar-oriented indie rock (and band name) of Morning Benders to the synth pop of Pop Etc.
...and changing the name because a few people in England shouted at their shows that they were "gender benders"? who cares? why give in to bullies?
oh well, all will be forgiven if you only go back to your guitars...
