What the actual fuck!!!?!?
someone will actually be able to understand what music is!

i like him he doesn't buy into the 'arty' pretensions of the others
i'll fucking flip
THAT'S who he looks like!
My Mark & Lard Graveyard Shift memories cannot sully anything he says here.
FUCKING SANTOGOLD EVERYFUCKINGWHERE YOU GO. EVERYWHERE. EVERYWHERE.
Hang on, I know the first 10 seconds of this song!
well, i've seen her picture, somewhere, someplace, i suppose
instead of the usual gushing praise they usually heap upon anything solidly upper middle brow
nail on the head
can't music mix with the other arts? Jarvis sounded a little bit dim when he was talking about the other stuff, but on Santogold he was dropping some science. On the other hand, the female writer was sensitive and insightful on all the other stuff but was unable to say anything more meaningful than "there's a lot going on with her voice" and "it's fun!"
I love Newsnight Review, but why are they all SO FUCKING HOPELESS when it comes to music? Wax lyrical ffs
tends to have very different intentions than any other major art form. For instance, a song can be populist and meaningless and still be praised by fans and journalists, but a play, book, novel, piece of visual art would probably get panned if it did the same thing. There are obviously exceptions, but in general popular music has far less lofty ambitions than other art forms. It's more often about fun and young people than talking about serious stuff in an intelligent and original way.
And I agree that Jarvis Cocker didn't cover himself in glory last night. Mind you, nor did I by being in to watch him, so maybe we'll call it a draw.
