Culted Forms

I’m using words like libido and desire, but what I’m really talking about is a certain lovelessness that has crept into music fandom and music writing. Love is the relation one has to another person where you are not just looking for specific satisfactions (sex, companionship, support, etc.),…

A slightly cynical, but scarily accurate, description of music as an art format in the modern day and age; that being our obsession with aesthetic, entertainment and controversy. The art aspect is all but ignored in favour of a soft, warm fuzzy and reliable hug. That being said, it can’t be described as a generalisation because of where we are at this point in the internet ‘everything is available’ age and the resurgence of the physical listening format. Regardless I agree with everything Ian says here, a major musical renaissance is in order (though I cannot see it happening in my lifetime).
