Wow, my taste in music was nowhere near as well developed as this kid’s when I was 15. I’ve apparently become one of the old people who needs to resort to pinging teenagers to find out about cool new music. At least I can do it through the relatively less embarrasing medium of a podcast now.

    My guess is an internet connection, pitchfork, and p2p really help the younguns get hip.

    My thoughts exactly. I was in fact more impressed by the classics she played, e.g., Stevie Wonder, whom I think is probably less apparent to our budding hipster overlords.

    Zoe has spun a few spins for Little Radio, a semi-pirate station in Los Angeles. Little Radio has done a service to the basin by broadcasting things like full band sets, a useful counterpoint (for those who keep track of these things) to the raw inbreeding of the LA music scene — which, for all its supposedly leading-edge hipsterism, is as corrupt and foul and uniform a den of fools as you could find in any KROQ conference room. The much-vaunted Indie 103.1 is riding, quite deliberately, a highway to hell in this regard, and though Silver Lake and Echo Park have the best LA scene going since the Strip in the 1980s, it’s all headed for a horrible crash and burn, of horribly anonymous proportions.
