“Technology’s impact on music can be measured in one undeniable way over the past few years: the huge proliferation of one-man bands, young (mostly) dudes working under some vague band moniker, who would rather make music on their own—thank you very much!—ensconced in their rooms and not playing well with others. That is, until a debut EP catches blog fire, and live shows must be played, requiring a proper live band. Those laptop artists-turned-bands have emanated from some of the usual indie outposts: Brooklyn, Austin, Portland, Southern California. But they come from less likely ‘burgs, too. For instance, Blacksburg, Virginia, a college town if ever there was one, utterly dominated by the sprawl of Virginia Tech.” – JOHN NORRIS on Wild Nothing
