Our most recent pieces about music.
David Taylor provides an entry to Fennesz’s recent albums, in particular Agora (Touch, 2019): his “approach to the musical past is to transform and disfigure it in flight toward new forms of expression, then these records demonstrate a similar approach to geography, as the coordinates and specificities of place get dissolved and flow out into oceans of pure sound.”
An amazing real-world example, from the University of South Dakota: link.
Pod Save American podcast episode, “Hold My Putter” (Feb 19, 2018, link), during which the hosts describe a conspiracy theory that involves trechcoats and red string, approx. 16:30-19:00.
The very strange music video for They Might Be Giants’ new track “The Greatest” (2018) features an obsessive making a voodoo-doll version of Nick Offerman, having also created a stalker-style wall: link.
The Flop House podcast crew describes trying to make meaning from the film Bright (dir. David Ayer, 2017), via a trip to the craft store for string and supplies to make a conspiracy/evidence board; around minutes 56:00-58:00: link.
