Jlin - if I wanted to hear a quantized sample of a CD skipping, I'd listen to an Oval CD from 1999

Caretaker - this is just a bunch of thrift store record samples

Bjork - I found this slow, gloomy, and unengaging. her mix that she did for Mixmag (?) was great, though.

I can't really diss it because I don't hate it at all but Yaeji seems overrated as hell to me. There's just not much going on musically and lyrically... every song seems she runs out of ideas and she just resorts to repeating words in the same monotonic voice.

Again, I don't hate it but I don't see what's so special about it either or why she's making it into so many EOY best songs lists.

Fever Ray was also so-so for me. I like the knife and the first fever ray album a lot, so I thought for sure this would be one of my favorite albums of the year but alas it ended being one of the most dissapointing ones for me. It’s just so hard to sit through... even harder than ‘shaking the habitual’ and that’s saying something.

I can get past the hamfisted lyrics (either way lyrics has never been her strong point), but the textures and production are sort of uninteresting too, the middle of the album is specially boring or annoying and contains some of her worst songs ever (“this country” really wtf is up with that).

I don’t know... I guess it’s just alright in small doses but I don’t want ‘just alright’ from her.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Saturday, 16 December 2017 08:33 (one year ago) Permalink

Ok maybe the production isn’t uninteresting... but it’s too harsh and irritating more often than not. I get that maybe that was her intent with this particular album but I’m not a masochist, sorry.

Mince Pramthwart (James Morrison), Saturday, 16 December 2017 10:56 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah I agree with all of that Moka

the production mostly feels like lesser retreads of Silent Shout and the Fever Ray s/t, and the songwriting lacks the memorable melodies. the lyrics are a step down too - Silent Shout especially could be quite evocative but they're more hamfisted here and the BDSM subject matter of some of it is completely uninteresting to me

I don't know any rockists under the age of 50 so my anecdotal evidence doesn't match your anecdotal evidence. The overwhelming majority of people I know are vehemently opposed to the idea that there is such a thing as 'real' music and primarily listen to pop. Also, I've never lived in the US.

I didn't think Chuck Klosterman was what people meant by 'rockism' at all, although I haven't kept up with his recent work. The famous Ramones vs Ratt was totally an argument that popular but critically derided 'corporate, fake, pedestrian' music should be discussed at least as seriously as critically acclaimed 'important, authentic' music.

That may be just "neurological", but teenagers have a high attraction for pedantism and conservatism. 16 years old who discover Pink Floyd or Led Zep etc. That has never really changed and never will. But yeah in real life people are mostly casual, most don't care to have a logic to their listens (god bless them).

revisiting all these Ewing essays is really edifying, and it also makes me wonder how you might conceptualize something that follows poptimism around the current (perceived?) dominance of the Atlanta sound and other streaming-centric hip-hop. a lot of times it feels like that stuff is intentionally pushing against Ewing's (more often implied than explicit) ideas about what populism *sounds* like, musically, and also leans more towards rabid fandom as way to leverage oneself into popularity than reaching across the aesthetic aisle.

austinb, Monday, 10 December 2018 22:28 (one month ago) Permalink

it's also interesting to see how little extramusical ethics plays a part in these columns, considering how dominant it is in the discourse now

austinb, Monday, 10 December 2018 22:33 (one month ago) Permalink

More to say soon but: I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "extramusical ethics" but I think that part of the backlash against evaluating music in terms of 'authenticity' and/or authorial intent in the early poptimism days (as seen in the ca. 2000 Ewing essays that Tim linked) might have involved a conscious move away from or reaction to evaluating music in terms of certain types of extramusical ethics, whether in terms of looking for explicit statements in the music, concern with the identities or backgrounds of stars, or valuing smaller-scale or non-corporate modes of production or dissemination. If anything, it was probably the 'rockists' who had venerated Tracy Chapman and Arrested Development 10 years earlier. ('Rockism' is almost definitely even more of a strawman than any take on 'poptimism' imo, esp considering that afaik literally no one positively identified as a 'rockist' before the term was coined as a put-down.)

And a lot of so-called poptimists seem to frame a lot of the stuff they claim to enjoy in rockist terms anyway; I never really think of rockism = a preference for rock music but an antiquated way of discussing music that seems to very closely resemble the celebrity-watch of the kind of modern music criticism you see on Pitchfork et al

(although, amazingly, Tom 3wing did think it had to do with privileging rock music and "the ways rock music gets talked about", and was probably not a catch-all for every possible type of snobbery, prescriptivism, or prejudice, while recognizing that it was a "silly term".)

Locked in silent monologue, in silent scream (Sund4r), Thursday, 20 December 2018 01:08 (four weeks ago) Permalink

imo the discourse is missing the point, but largely because it's tough to describe the nuances of music-consumption..

There are people who are whole and feel comfortable with themselves, and do not know oppression firsthand, and these people feel OK with music that is nothing more than the fruits of the training and rehearsing of individuals who, like them, exist entirely within their own selfhood (that is, they don’t feel any conflict in their life), and are completely content to simply enter a studio or walk on a stage and demonstrate the fruits of their labour without any concern as to, say, “who they’re borrowing from”, “what they’re saying”, “who they are”, or “the potentially detrimental effects that their complacent ‘craftsmanship’ might have on individual listeners who do not have the same access to the methods with which this music was created.”

Those people are “rockists”, broadly, but also essentially include any Steely Dan or Fleetwood Mac fan who would never consider themselves a “rockist”— in fact, they may simply have, sometimes, “rockist” tastes, sometimes, and wouldn’t think it beneath them to rate their favourite Beatles when it came down to it. (What I mean is: everyone is a rockist, sometimes.)

And there are other people, who think that whole process is full of shit, and doesn’t take into account intersectional politics, or current or past politics, and have other approaches to music listening.

There are those who think that everybody is entitled to a career in music and actively stan music made by neophytes (because of the originality and interest created in every individual’s approach to music-making)— but also because it reflects a far more societally ecumenical approach to culture-creation— that we are all music-makers. It reflects our own amateurism with regards to music-making, and makes us feel good about ourselves that our content creators are also prone to accident and amateurism and moments of greatness.

There are those who think that music (or culture in general) is an effective venue for corrective measures for socio-economic oppression, and prioritize the genius of black people, poor people, trans people, and see the previously-described “canon” as being, as stated earlier, the product of privilege, and thus, one that should be subverted, if not destroyed.

And there are those who wish for a completely consumerist attitude toward pop music, because we are in a culture war, after all, and because a consumerist attitude un-ironically reflects the true intentions of a culture-industry, and so their unabashed adoration for (say) Ariana Grande not only unites the listener with the “working class” but also commodifies the intention and the body of the artist/performer/creative group as being, essentially, what they are, as the culture industry would dictate: expendable. It makes people feel OK with themselves to turn humans into cultural objects to be used and destroyed.

In short, to try and reduce things to a dichotomy of rockism-popism is frustrating (for me) to see people do. People listen to different musics at different times for different reasons. I am “rockist” because I adore extremely talented and privileged classical musicians making wonderful music in expensive concert halls. (I don’t actually care for “rock music” made by men except for Jon Spencer and Black Sabbath, don’t ask me why, maybe because it’s a caricature of white maleness.) I am “neophyte-ilic” because I enjoy the music of young people picking up their guitars for the first time. I have “intersectional tastes” because the music industry has generally left women and black people with lower salaries, despite their greater achievements. And I enjoy the experience of “consumerism”, because I’m a human, and I experience schadenfreude when a pop star fails, and enjoy a redemption narrative when same pop star (or a different one) makes a comeback— I, too, enjoy turning human musicians into objects of cultural consumption.

Oh there’s also that weird strain of “obscurantism” or something? maybe the wrong word, but it’s that human psychological tendency to prefer music that is less popular, or undiscovered. I don’t really go for that, personally, because it smacks of Bad Thoughts (i.e. colonialism), but I recognize that sometimes as a curator you have to surprise people to be of value, rather than playing them shit they’ve already heard.

But anyway, all these different approaches to music listening are inherently contradictory, and result in various contradictory statements that I’m myself inclined to accept and embrace, and have repeatedly stated, such as:

Beyonce’s “Lemonade” is the greatest album of all time
Electrelane is the greatest rock band of all time
Big Thief is the only good band in the world right now
“Thank You, Next” is the greatest song of all time
“Escapade” is the greatest song of all time
“Uptown Top Ranking” is the greatest song of all time
Xiu Xiu is my favourite band
When I’m cooking at home I only listen to Low on repeat off of Tidal
When I’m at my boyfriend’s house (by myself) I only listen to Stockhausen on vinyl while cleaning up his shit
When I’m at my boyfriend’s house (with him) I might sneak in some early Stereolab or Young Marble Giants in between his insistence that we only listen to New Order and Lionel Richie on repeat
Foxy Brown’s “Ill Na Na” is the greatest album of all time

Music listening is a present-tense act and so things shift and are malleable and I will totally cop to being an enormous stan for the execrable “Love Yourself” (Bieber/Sheeran) because it always plays at 7am when I have woken up to early and am shopping for raspberries at the supermarket to make morning smoothies and am consumed with thoughts of my abusive ex from my anxious dreams the night previous, and sing the song to myself while thinking of his abusive ass.

I hate Madonna, because 90% of her music is ass, but I also love Madonna, because I like seeing a 60-year old white woman continue to be a pop star, it is beautiful.

Functional listening, present-tense listening, you see? It shifts and changes.

Autechre is getting kind of same-y sounding, with the big, reverb-y sheen, and hard, strobe-like limiting effects. The 'big reverb sheen' sort of first emerged with Oversteps--everything sounded bigger (more "glacial" (?) nah), somehow, and the polish (on the background elements) of ilanders marked this new, lush (polished) era of Ae. NTS Sessions (along w/the new single) is great and all, it just seems like we're getting more quantity than quality nowadays. FWIW, I believe they sort of peaked with AE_LIVE and Elseq. sinistrail sentinel is cool and all, it just doesn't really touch the quality of irlite (gtf0)
