Admittedly I have not listened to Krautrock. I’ve listened to a little shoegaze. I like Lush! But I can tell what that woman is singing. Here, not so much…
I don’t get why indie blogs are all about celebrating music they rightly admit “I have no idea what she’s saying most of the time”. Are indie musicians becoming so obsessed with trying to remain in their insular world, that everything has to be unintelligible now? It’s like the more mainstream “indie” gets the more garbled the vocals becomes on every fucking song. If you can actually sing, we should be able to fucking hear it.
They’re simply feelings she has. She never referenced any direct interview/communication with the band other than from afar. She BELIEVES they’re are authentic, but that’s not an intellectual argument.
It’s not Deconstructing because nothing is being deconstructed (in any sense of that word). And it’s barely about the music itself. This article is about the perception of the artists themselves, but instead of “deconstructing” that, she’s just saying “I know people don’t like them, but I do.” I think it’s kind of nice that she’s not being a hater, but this segment should just be called “This is how I feel about ____”.
Sharona Wave. For sure.
I think that’s very well said. Now I’m sure someone will turn it into a new genre.
You Win, dude. You win.
Thank you! I didn’t know he was on twitter. Sweet!
What do you know about a follow-up Ramona Falls album? I’ve been dying for any sort of news. Thanks for the heads up about Laura, really dig her a lot.
I love you.
