"If you’ve grown up, as anyone under the age of 30 really has, with a relationship to music based around total access, superabundance, and the erosion of a sense of sounds having placement within an historical or temporal scheme, then thinking about music in terms of causal links and development through time becomes ever more alien to your consciousness."

new blog posts: Lau Nau, Lauryn Hill, The Pop Group, Don Carlo Gesualdo, Rusko, and THE WXYC PIE. Check it out at:
