Have you noticed the creeping trend of Aaliyah being mentioned as a major influence and Timbaland as a production benchmark by indie-ish acts?
Obviously the Rolling Stones had R&B influences but when did this make a come back? Should we blame land-fill indie or has that world simply been more inventive? Was it chillwave 'slow-jamz' becoming something else or did it happen a while back before the xx and James Blake?
Does post-r&b really exist? is it less annoying and a tad more 'on it' than post-dubstep as a genre name?
