It's basically the same question as to what is art?
Art is an interesting thing, because we find the need to compartmetalize everything. This band is death metal. That one is in country.
That's a Western band, but it ends up getting all crazy and silly when it becomes entirely too specific.
In the introduction email I received from Labors, they told me that they're a band that plays Midwestern Americana. Now, I'm not making fun of the label they chose.
Like many bands in our modern world, what's old has become new and what's new has become old, and what's brand new is what happens if when you combine the old and the new and get this new kind of pudding....with Snickers in it.
