I could claim preoccupation with my other preoccupations, and that'd be true but insufficient.
Here's the latest from my blog, posted yesterday:
Damn fine exercise. It's not whether the album itself is or is not shitty, though many are mighty shitty, but whether they were seminal influences on schools of shitty music. A few I particularly agree with:
That's only through the Es, so read the rest yourself. For the record, in case I haven't made this point often enough, The Fucking Doors suck.
Here's All Song's Considered's Fall 2006 preview. Some interesting stuff. New Joanna Newson, frinstance.
All Thing's Considered review of new Wil Oldham (aka Bonnie Prince Billy) album. Buying today.
Jacob Sudal, over at Sequenza 21, always posts lots of (use your own terminology)-classical music. (I've been terribly awful over on S21 - I'm a Republican congressman with lots of email to keep up with - I will be posting soon.)
My favorite musicblog right now: Destination: OUT
Grind from Junior Boys.

Look, I am preoccupied
- that whole attack on the Constitution thing, for instance, and the calculated (and uncalculated) assault on what makes me proud to be an American -
but I'm also stymied by what to do here. I'm not going to lecture readers of Sequenza 21 about music. I post music I like at bLCkdgRd and will cross-post here when I do, but I'm not going to do you the insulting disservice of trying to justify it or, worse, explain it. You'll like or dislike, you'll listen or you won't.
