Default Is it still possible to be innovative in Pop music?

So...

Is it still possible to be innovative in Pop music?

Think about it, when's the last time we've seen an innovative pop artist?

Well, MIA was kind of innovative


But yeah...can anybody think of some forward-thinking pop music in recent years?

Anything is possible but I think it is very unlikely.

The last decade for innovation in the pop world was in the 80's. Most of the artists now mimic or copy those artists and styles. The industry has changed drastically to the point that these artists (now) dont care to push themselves creatively because their are no consequences for bland material.

I think that era of innovation has passed.

This.

Surell got me into AnCo 2-3 months ago, and by now I don't think he realizes how much effect it has had on me. Let's just say that, aside from a number of outstanding groups from the 60's and 70's, there is Animal Collective, and there is everyone else. I've been desperately searching for other new/recent groups as good as them, and while I've come across some pretty good ones, I've yet to come across another group remotely as creative as AnCo.

In fact, I've been recently watching some interviews with them on Youtube, and I'm not even so sure they themselves realize how good they are.

OK, this is an order!

Click on this video, turn your speakers up as loud as you can tolerate, put the video in full-screen mode, and just watch it.

:)))))))))))))

And you're right, they are very humble artists, and don't bask in the eccentricity their music would seem to imply for their personalities. Offstage, anyway; their shows are equally as radical.

I've also been getting into Avey Tare's solo album lately. He's one of the main band members of AnCo.
