So I've realized that the only artists I adored in high school who aren't releasing painfully misguided and/or uninspired bloats these days are those that currently specialize in cryptic boogie: Sonic Youth, Stephen Malkmus, the Fall and any group with John Reis in it. This says more about the kind of band I was enthusiastic for at the time than the modern music scene, but I feel it deserves mention. Maybe Girls Against Boys will put out something kickass soon. The last two New Wet Kojak albums were pretty fun. But I guess that's cryptic boogie too. Ah, indie.
