It would be impossible to name all of the bands that move me right now – we are seemingly within the influence of a madly musical Aquarian time.
The Age of Aquarius, though scientifically thought to be centuries away – popular theory maintains that we are currently within a transitory time carrying the influence of a new age experience which will usher in a group higher consciousness. Other ideas associated with Aquarius are a decline of religious influence (peace??) non-conformity, philanthropy and perseverance, which all sounds eerily and hopefully resonant.
If Artistic energy is any indication – and it always is – we are certainly rushing into a group consciousness. As the Elite Rock Star declines as a musical model, we’re moving towards a time of thousands of collaborative, real-life rock stars, indie and otherwise. Brothers, brothers and sisters, couples and bffs are playing together and not just seeking fame and fortune but moving through real lives that we can all relate to.
So, yes, I can’t help but spread my love around when it comes to the world of music. No longer looking to be star-struck, I feel more embedded within the energy of what’s not simply coming at me, but coming through me. It’s about the music. And also about a life that belongs to all of us.
