With the sheer amount of albums that have been released since the early 20th century, so many have slid underneath both the critics’ and fans’ radars, barely gaining the recognition they deserve.
Understated+Underrated is a weekly segment that attempts to dust off these dark horses of both past and present, to argue their case. Popular music now is built off of revising old music of the modern era, our immediate history.
“dust off these dark horses of both past and present”
These revisions often regurgitate old musical tropes or old musicians, so Understated+Underrated attempts to broaden this scope to the ones who didn’t make the end-of-year lists and the charts and reveal these hidden gems.
Understated + Underrated will begin next week and you can read it (and hear it) right here and over on Shoomny.
