Blown Out

Not that I’m likely to start being a cheerleader, or even a user, of social media, but sometimes a random stranger can show you an alley worth exploring. On the other hand, they used to do that in the pub too.

Someone started following me on Bandcamp and so I checked out their collection and wishlist and discovered the wonderful Blown Out. If you likes you your teleological jamming then you may well likes these.

It probably just comes down to personal preference and the pushing of my right buttons, but it’s weird how out of roughly 16000 of these bands that form on a weekly basis and that technically speaking do pretty much the same thing, so few of them do it in a way that means anything. In my most recent rambles I drew a distinction between music as communication and sound based products (not using those labels). This sort of jam band music could arguably be a third type of approach, an exploratory thing without destination which is nonetheless not aimless – at least when it’s done well. And Blown Out do it well.

Of course, if your music taste is like that of my brother (i.e. songs over 3 minutes need not apply) then you might as well ignore this one.
