The ReverbNation music artist community is really friendly, encouraging, and open-minded. It's time to honor some of these bands that I like, and my focus will be on their art.
Slick, exciting, glossy art for bands means one thing: over-produced, over-hyped generic music. Predictable. Boring.
Far better is pseudo-amateur, abstract-catastrophic art. It's got that classic sub-Artforum unpretentious, unassuming aura. It signifies creative nonchalance and the measured outpouring of clinical exuberance.
Here are some of my favorites...with a follow-up post, Pt. 2, coming soon.
