Sorry for music critics

[ #15639 ]
Dear Log,

«There's such a huge array of amazing things going on in all different genres, but nobody's listening to all of it. To keep up with what I consider to be interesting music, I read The Wire and Folk Roots, and there's no crossover [into pop dross] in them. I read Mojo and Uncut. And Aquarius Records in San Francisco has an amazing Web site with some of the most entertaining record reviews. And there's WFMU in New Jersey [the last freeform station in the country] -- I like the idea that people are programming truly eclectic music.

I feel sorry for music critics because of the dismal state of the current pop scene in general. I mean, this stuff [the ATP lineup] is great, but it's not being played on the radio. We're inundated with pseudo-hipness, and if I had to write about the big bands, I'd quit. But there's still great music out there, if you search for it.»
