Why is this still the best song
forever and ever.
Also, re this whole Elite Gymnastics vs. The Big Bad Machine kerfuffle: We are aware that *dissemination* of music on a large, noticeable scale is much more difficult than making it these days? Which is why having the PR moxie made available by the fine people working at 4AD (all of whom are excellent at their jobs! and wonderful people to boot!) does in fact matter to how Grimes is perceived in the world at large, probably more than how her music was made? This is just the way things are in 2012, when there are thousands of people shouting in every direction.
I love Charli XCX; I like Grimes. But we shouldn’t pick and choose our battles over “authenticity” because then the music, WHICH IS THE POINT, gets drowned out.
Charli XCX covered “The Killing Moon” on Saturday night.
