For people who say there's a lot of good modern music around, what bands would you say are great that have formed in the 00s?

I thoroughly enjoy modern music.. but since the majority of what I listen to is electronic, there's more of an ability to do new things. It sounds more organic nowadays. The stuff back in 98-03 was great but was kind of clunky.

Music back in the late 60s and 70s (which I like) was not as derivative as it is now. Although the industry goes far back, music as something that really spoke to young people and gained the sort of status it has in our lives didn't really happen on super-large scale until the 60s. I regard the end of that decade and the early 70s to be sort of like a cambrian explosion of different styles. Music freed people in a way that had never been done before and the labels signed on all sorts of strange groups. They did oh so much cool stuff and that newfound passion found it's way into the recordings. You can find a way to get distortion on your hammond organ and play it like it was an electric guitar today too, but it's just not the cool and ballsy move it was back then when noone had done it before.
is it really the music that got big? or the continual decrease in costs involved in recording and broadcasting the music that made it easier to spread around?

is it really the music that 'freed' people in the 60s? or the fact that most of their families had been broken / were recovering from the effects of that big war that ended at the end of the 40s. what was it called again? the one with Hitler. the patriarchal authority figure was no longer such a dominant effect on family and in turn society 'freeing' the kids to do whatever they wanted and to point their dirty fingers to 'the man' when they didn't want to have to get jobs after high school.

was it really a ballsy move to fuzz out a piano? or just a screw up by some burnout who connected the cables incorrectly? John Lennon gets credited for creating the 'backwards' guitar solo, he credits weed for being so wasted he put the tape in wrong prior to playback.

Everyone bold I don't like, the others - I either haven't heard their music, or simply haven't heard of them.

A lot them bands mentioned are experimental, "art rock", rap, synth/electronic bands etc.

Either we have different tastes, or your music taste is more eclectic than mine, seems like these days people are trying to make experimental art rock crap, I just don't buy it all, but to be fair there are a few in your list I've never even heard of.

That's basically what I wrote ..

.. from the perspective of a sour cynic.

So that means they can't be quality modern day bands and artists?

It's not what I'm into, I personally think all that art rock and synth/electro stuff, for the most part is shite, I'm sure there are some exceptions to that but there you go.
