Ann Powers from the LA Times voted, but none of the NY Times critics voted (I guess the NY Times doesn't allow them to vote). If the NY Times critics had voted K. Sanneh could have given rapper Turf Talk a 3rd vote in the album list!

Stats teaser:

With one precinct reporting, the most centric voter so far is Chris Molanphy, who voted for albums 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 16 and 20.

Kerry Dexter and Stefan Shepherd filed the only ballots that don't overlap with any others yet.

Only one voter did not vote for any albums.

I got rid of the box ages ago which I sorta regret. Maybe I was miffed that techno had usurped house in the zeitgeist. More likely it was just too damn patchy (although admittedly the house box was too).

But. I took a History of American Popular Music course c. 1991 and said history apparently stopped with Aretha's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" since that was the last song the prof played. However, for the last day of class, he asked us to bring one song from the 1990s which we thought pointed towards the future (and, yes, that means yet again the 1980s weren't part of history).

Anyhoo, I remember only three examples of the future of music as of 1991: Seal (!), The Nylons (!!!), and Little Richard's "Itsy Bitsy Spider" (! x infinity). Seal, I can forgive - Prog&B sounded pretty futuristic back then. But the fuckin' Nylons??? Wasn't the point of their music, such as it is, to look back? And come the fuck on. Little Richard??? Worship him but was he the future of anything by 1960 much less 1991?

I was in a rage by the time I walked up to the front of the class to play Zone: "Eternal #2" from this comp which was authorless in a way very much unlike "Itsy Bitsy Freakin' Spider." And boy did I sound a lot like those liner notes while pumping my choice. But it was such an amazing experience. Half the class seemed awakened for the first time all semester while about a quarter were stunned and/or whispering to one another as if I just unveiled Jeff Koons' "Made in Heaven" series (leaving one quarter completely unfazed). The prof was cool at first, asking me where the term "house music" came from and whatnot. But he got downright frosty when the conversation evolved into a gripefest about Rolling Stone. It was awesome. Eventually he had to tell me to sit down since he realized part of what we were bitching about was the truncated history he'd been handing us all semester.

Of course, it all seems a bit silly now if only because the concept of "future" in a capitalist society is nothing to parade about. Still, the very real folk behind Zone get my vote for affording me the opportunity to shake up that bullshit class for five minutes.

P.S. I wrote my final paper on The Frogs' It's Only Right and Natural, imagining it as a collection of songs hidden away in an attic for 100+ years. I got an A but there were no comments on the paper.

Williams had her chainsaw, Peaches has an oversized neon dildo; both, when brandished, represent the same nihilistic essence. In the late '70s and early '80s, DIY was an excuse to play guitars, badly. Today, the same ethic is pouring forth from keyboards. Village Voice (2001)

gr8080, Friday, 30 January 2015 06:43 (three years ago) Permalink

It seems that everytime when this subject is brought up here, the kneejerk reaction among people who like misogynic/sexist rap tunes to say "but other genres too it do!" (even with genres where sexism is clearly less prominent) instead of trying to honestly address why they are not bothered by the lyrics, or why they can get past them even if they are bothered.

Just to make sure, I've listened to a lot of misogynic/sexist rap myself, I know there are historical/cultural/sociological reasons why sexism is more prominent in some types of rap than in many other pop music genres, I know that I'm a white European and that the complexities of the lived experience of many of these rappers is something I can never fully understand, I know you have to contextualize sexism, I know that it doesn't make sense to directly compare genres with a wholly different approach to lyrics... So I can still listen to that kind of rap when the sexism isn't blatant, but when it become too gross you just get tired of trying to jump through so many contextualization hoops, so you're just like, fuck it, there's enough good rap music that doesn't do this shit, so why should I listen to one that does, why should I support musicians who help to reproduce the idea that one half of humankind is worth less than the other half?

there's no reason you should, which is why it's a good thing nobody is saying you have to listen to, enjoy or agree with misogynist rap

Of course, but my main point was that I find it kinda weird that, with people here who apparently enjoy some sexist rap tunes (and vote for them in polls), when asked about how they're able to enjoy that stuff, their favourite response seems to be, "but there's sexism in other genres too!". Well of course there is, of course blatant sexism in any kind of music should be questioned, but I don't see how this is justification for tolerating it in these particular tunes. And I'm not saying there can't sometimes be good enough reasons for tolerating it, but this kind of "the other kids are doing it too!" rhetoric is just dodging the question instead of addressing it honestly.

I've heard half of those Norman Records list... some of them are really good and glad they're giving deserved attention to some ignored records but there's also some boring ones in there. At any rate these sort of 'non-zeigeist' lists are always better than the consensus ones. Yeah we all love Lemonade but I prefer finding out about records I might have overlooked instead of the ones we've talked about all year.

#1.Human Interest - great

#2.Hand Over Fist - good

#3.Luau - o.k.

the rest of the album is a dud for me.
