Find Me On:
I’ll admit, I stopped at “my hometown got into the game in 2002″. Ummm, South By Southwest? 1987? That’s kind of the template for most of the American festivals. Maybe you make some great points, but I doubt it , after that.
I wonder whatever happened to having tastes? I don’t mean having “taste” like being superior, or something- just having tastes, like my tastes lean more toward The Runaways than Liz Phair. Perhaps more to the point- Mazzy Star isn’t exactly suited to my tastes, so why should I like stuff that’s like a less subtle Mazzy Star? Especially when sung by some rich guy’s model daughter? Now, you can read that as a slam or an attack on someone or something, but I’m just saying it’s not to my tastes. I’m sure Lana Del Ray has something of great merit for some people, just not me. Why the need to state absolutely that she’s great or terrible? I wonder if we aren’t slowly allowing music criticism to become Youtube and Twitter comments….
