Re: All the best music was written before 1988 anyway
To all of you: Go find some indie/underground bands and better music services to help you do so. There is plenty of newer and even current-year music that doesn't subscribe to the vapid, autotuning corporate bullshit. Keep in mind the majority of chart-topping music written within the past 10–20 years was written by the same handful of people, usually either Lukasz Gottwald or Max Martin.
Bandcamp has become a rather nice source for off-the-wall and indie music, and I've found plenty of favorites through the service... And you can download your purchases in FLAC on top of streaming them anywhere, for no extra cost. Qobuz has a really odd-in-a-good-way portfolio with plenty of older music, and also has full high-quality album downloads (even hifi 192kHz FLAC, DSD, DXD, MQA) either discounted or included with a subscription. Soundcloud, while not as "professional" a platform as the previously mentioned services, does hold within it the occasional gem that you won't find anywhere else; lots of self-published, single-artist works of wildly varying genres, unfortunately usually in shite quality despite its potential to be better. There are probably even more good services that I haven't located yet.
Limiting yourself to one or a selection of genres or periods of music is something I can't understand. While I'll agree the popular stuff from today's generation is overhyped and engineered (and even from some past generations) that doesn't mean there aren't good artists out there anymore... It just makes them harder to find.
I'm not going to provide any artists or examples of "good music" because the term is incredibly subjective and everyone likes something different, but I absolutely guarantee there is something for everyone in more recent releases, if one looks hard enough.
