There was a trend going on a few years ago that I really hoped would catch on but never really did. The Jesus and Mary Chain were headlining Coachella, bands like A Place to Bury Strangers and The Vandelles were cropping up all over the place, and I was really hopeful that it would catch on in a big way, but it never really did. The whole movement kind of died on the vine, but I’m still hopeful for it to make a resurgence as soon as possible. Cough Cool, the band, not The Misfits song, kind of give me hope that people are keeping it alive and not everyone is riding the trend wave. I have a huge bias, musically that I can’t really get past, but I hope in the coming year there’s a lot more of this, and a lot less chilling at the beach, and smoking mad dank. Maybe I should move to Philadelphia.
