Glyph is worse than some and better than others. He believes that life is just one damned thing after another, that only pop music can save us now, and that mercy is the mark of a great man (but he's just all right). Nothing he writes here should be taken as an indication that he knows anything about anything.

    That was real nice. Also, when I grouse that advocates of high-art traditions ought to craft their appeals to be a little more compelling than “it’s better than that crap you listen to,” it’s descriptions like yours that I have in mind as an ideal. Your writing impelled me to listen, and while doing so your description added a dimension to my understanding and helped to shape my appreciation. Thank you.Report

    the one thing they do very well – and something that’s shared with weltzie’s previous group, stars of the lid – is that long sensation of falling backwards into memory. it’s an idealized memory, but the way they can transform a long bus ride into a eerie restructuring of the quotidian into an intense emotional experience with nothing more than a few people is truly breathtaking.Report
