I'll admit, I'm not a musicophile. You couldn't pay me enough to go deal with crowds at SXSW or ACL. But I listen to just about everything from the 60s through today.
So maybe I am looking in the wrong spots, but it seems that rock is currently in a trough. Most new stuff sounds very "folksy." In fact, I'm listening to some SRV right now to get my fix of songs with guitars, drums, and no synthesizers or wimpy voices.
So when is rock coming back? Is there something I'm missing that I can listen to some rock in the mainstream (101X has turned into the Mumford and Sons hour)?
