Listening

I love the way Philip Sherburne writes about techno. In his latest Pitchfork Month in Techno column (up today) he does his typically grand track descriptions (including a really interesting one of Audion's latest, "Mouth to Mouth", which has been floating around the blogs of choice recently - go get it!) and talks about "modes of listening" which is very thought-provoking indeed.

Go read: if you can avoid tripping on the big words you'll be a techno head in no time.

"only a seamlessly shifting view as impossible (and futile) to describe in detail as the landscape as glimpsed from a moving train."

its tough to find a writer on the internet (especially pitchfork), or anywhere else, who has seemingly duel ability to describe something so unpretentiously and down to earth but with the same passion and genuine excitment about the subject. I've been reading that article since it started about 8 months or so ago, but that is his best one so far i think...
