In an effort to maintain my credibility as a music blogger and journalist, I feel it is important to do a Hipster Flex every year during the Black Week sales. Usually I'd be featuring upcoming new Indie artists... but 2020. This year I'm just featuring music things that I've loved throughout the years that I think need more attention.
Today's Hipster Flex is more of a Modern Musical History Mystery. This one goes back to the early days of the web. 2004 was well before the first cat video was ever posted to YouTube, and an odd time to be releasing video content. There were rare attempts to produce video for the web back then, but they were few and far between. One of those dedicated few was The Scene.
The 20 episode first season of The Scene was delivered to the world as a dramatized look behind the scenes of Internet piracy. The show focused on a group of movie pirates and is believe by many, including myself, to be anti-piracy propaganda from Sony. For many this belief is fostered by the fact that one of the producers worked for Sony. For others The Scene is dismissed as propaganda because it bares very little resemblance to real movie piracy.
Another reason that Sony is believed to be behind The Scene is the enigmatic title track. Artist Maylynne is featured in a well produced track, called Catch Me. At the time it was revealed that Maylynne was signed to Sony, though I cannot find any evidence to support this. Or anything else about Maylynne. At all. The artist just doesn't seem to exist outside of this beautifully relatable song.
If you try to search the Internet for answers, as I have many times, all you'll find are other seekers. Thousands of people all over the Internet are asking on places like Reddit for any details on this elusive voice. And all of those questions remain unanswered. 16 years later, a lot of people are still searching for more of her music!
