I'll tell you what's hard, writing about indie. Not bad indie, which is easy to write about, but indie I actually enjoy. Not on a 'this speaks to me' level, nothing speaks to me these days apart from Bodies Without Organs and the Crazy Frog, but on a 'hey yeah wow I like the sound of this'. How do you do it? "Jangling", "angular", oh heavens no not "urgent", you can see why so little writing about indie is at all convincing, describing this stuff is HARD. I don't want to go the join-the-dots route, oh it's C86 produced by Thurston Moore, SHUT UP GRANDAD etc etc.
What? Oh, that Arcade Fire single. Bet the rest of their stuff is rub tho.
