Local Music

How do you feel about the local music scene in general?

From novelty songs to Sarah Geronimo to whatever.

I personally have probably less than a handful of local artists that I actually respect.

Go rant about it here too.

I feel as if the latest really great, really original OPM we have was made around 10 years ago or so, during the great Francis M/Eraserheads/Parokya ni Edgar era. That's probably a real curmudgeon type of answer, and there are exceptions, but generally I feel like the local music industry is quite content to crap out copies of whatever's going on on the other side of the Pacific.

And what's with the actors launching albums full of cover songs/badly written originals? Man. Piolo Pascual? Gabby Concepcion? Sick

Generally though, I like the work of the following contemporary artists (times when they produced work I like is in parentheses):
Bamboo (circa 2008-2009)
Nina - great voice!
Paolo Santos - (a few years back at least)
Rico Blanco (sometimes)
Sheila and the Insects
Taken By Cars
Up Dharma Down (always and forever! Big grin )
Urbandub (circa 2004)

Yeah, Up Dharma Down is like single-handedly keeping Filipino music respectable. -__- Problem here is that the majority of people have no taste for this kind of "music". Hardly anybody appreciates it. We basically have a society that encourages churning out CRAP.

Sinosikat is also pretty good. I also like The Dawn. Problem with our rock bands is that hardly any of their frontmen can actually sing well.

TVJ - for their spoof on 'Anak'

Callalily and Parokya ni Edgar always(or usually) performed in our school variety show

Kamikazee started to perform in our varie show too.
Also Taken By Cars (...speaking of which...Di ko type music nila >_< )

Well for the music itself...

I only listen to Kamikazee out of these four XD;;

Ahaha, tanginang siling giniling yan. LSS nanaman ako >_> Siling giniling, siling giniling, ha! ha!

For the artists, I like listening to Slapshock, Kamikazee, Radioactive Sago Project(Astro, and a couple more), Greyhoundz, and some other specific songs. APO's tunes are cool too.

Another rant:

The problem with a lot of local music is that it's either too gimmicky or too cheesy.
