Who's got my heady CMW Insight?

Recommended Posts

Hey kids, I’ve been asked for advice on what’s worthy at this year’s CMW - from a visiting Bulgarian sound man. Apart from Bedouin Soundclash, Xavior Rudd, Hot Toddy and SF&NFTT, I don’t even know who’s playing! I’m going to start researching, but any advice or direction would help.

I’m so out of touch from the new music scene, it’s not even funny ::

Cheers!

I saw Craig Cardiff play a living room show last fall and thought he was really bad....

Go see the High Dials and Frontier Index on Saturday night at Healy's!!

I should have said that Craig Cardiff is good if you've never seen Keller Williams, really bad if you HAVE seen Keller Williams. He uses a lot of loops and stuff, but not anywhere near as creatively or to the same effect as KW

Isn't that a bit harsh AD? I mean, again I haven't heard Cardiff but from what I know about him I doubt he's trying to rip off Keller, he's just doing his own thing which happens to involve loops. Can't more than one guy use loops?

(Unless I'm wrong and you totally thought he was trying to rip off Keller, in which I case I'd probably agree.)

No, I don't think it's a bit harsh, it was just my opinion... Maybe I could have stated it differently...

I don't think he's trying to rip off KW, but an analogy would be listening to me play banjo or listening to Bela Fleck or Tony Trischka... Same tool and same kind of goal for the music (to my ears anyways) but waaaaay less results compared to Keller.

That's what I mean by saying if you've never heard Keller you'll think that what Cardiff is doing is pretty interesting and creative. If you have heard Keller you'll think that what Cardiff is doing is less than stellar.
