Re: Live Looping: it pops up everywhere

I don't think it is a "new trend" to use bad sound in recording. I'm
pretty sure it just happens because people are not experienced enough
or maybe don't have the patience to do it right, typically giving
priorities to artistic performance work flow aspects in a tough
situation. And like you, I have noticed that her recordings sound a
bit crappy. I guess she would like them to sound better if it was
possible, given the looper pedal based recording technique she seems
to be using. I do like her music very much though, and this makes me
like even here recordings.
