Remember the music video? Twenty years ago, music videos were actually creative, even mainstream productions were interesting. Budgets could reach in the 5-10 million range for the big artists, like Madonna or U2 back in the early 90’s.
Today, the only time I ever come across music videos is at the gym, because record companies pay the gym to show them.. MTV (Music Television) stopped showing videos over a decade ago for the most part.
Even with the creative drought in the music industry today, I can usually find 5-10 new bands a year worth listening to. “The Hold Steady,” are not only worth listening, but their videos are entertaining as well.
