The Talkhouse is a new online publication from Our Band Could Be Your Life author Michael Azerrad, and it focuses on musicians (EMA’s Erika Anderson, White Lung’s Mish Way, people like that) writing about music. And this morning, they’ve scored a deeply weird coup: Lou Reed writing, at length, about Kanye West’s Yeezus. The verdict: Lou likes it! He also references Metal Machine Music, imagines Kanye murdering Taylor Swift, and calls Kanye “a child of social networking and hip-hop.” Once you get over the fact that this ridiculous thing exists, you can read it here.
