A new low for all you Gen Xers out there believing 40 is the new 20: the term “elder statesman of Generation X” has hit the airwaves. Brace for impact, dear ones. Moreover, a writer reveals that Pearl Jam has moved beyond Gen X angst. (Blessings amidst the drama of growing older!)
From Prefix Magazine:
“The new tracks are definitely enough to raise interest in There Is No Enemy, Built to Spill’s first since 2006’s You In Reverse, and what has been rumored to be the bands last. It’s looking like Martsch could fully enter the class of still-prouductive elder statesmen of Generation X, roles currently occupied by John Forgerty and John Doe for their respective generations.
Were you a fan of Built to Spill, the indie rock band from Boise, Idaho?
From lehigh valley live:
“Pearl Jam has moved beyond Gen X angst. Sure, singer Eddie Vedder can still scowl and howl with the best of them. But his disposition seems to be a whole lot sunnier these days — as evidenced by the group’s latest effort, ‘Backspacer.'”
