Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

What if I claimed that those who sing only do so because they can’t rap, and those who write songs only do so because they can’t freestyle?
Which one is the supreme expression of artistic merit?
Trick question. Both.
Avatar 1:35pm StringOFperils:

"Music properly" generally translates as western European music, the music that has become conventionally broken down into western scales and tonalities, as developed, notated, and made into systems, by (almost exclusively) white Europeans. Which is a minority in the world.

"Music properly" is like staring at your navel, and denying that there's anything there when (if) you look up.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:38pm Otis Fodder:

Dan, totally get your opinion, but it's really the same across genres... loads of folks can't read/write music and in Hip Hop, many producers do. In Rap or Rock or Square Dance Calling, the voice is the instrument and quite often, learning to read/write music flows over to the musicians in the band or within a hip hop structure. Loads of hip hop producers can read/write music too, check out Adrian Younge (and associated projects, really fantastic). Loads to discover out there. Cheers!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:39pm doctorjazz:

I don't agree with the "rap is artless" view, though I used to worry that it might cause less folks to work hard mastering instruments. But, hip hop has been around since 1980 or so...i haven't noted any shortage of musicians...

Not so fast, SOFp. There's nothing wrong with contriving a system of musical production and then assessing whether or not a particular instance of it is "properly" executed. See, e.g., sonata form or Schoenberg's instructions for 12-tone serial composition. Half the fun, then, of listening to works that adopt a system is in fact in recognizing the degree to which the composer "properly" complies with it.

Avatar 1:44pm Martinibomb:

I hate the whole rap isn't music.. so old. music is composed of melody, harmony and rhythm. rap/hip hop is more heavily rhythm based.. that's all they even talk about is making beats etc.. the flow of the lyrics. That all rhythm/time which is HUGE HUGE thing for music U could almost argue that rappers can make music without harmony/melody but u can't make music without rhythm. Time is maybe the key ingredient.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm joe:

Almost every style of music was considered by a subset to "not be real music" when it came to be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm Rich in Washington:

We'll put, burke!
One of the things I love about this show is both the variety and breadth of the music presented and also the lengths at which Uncle Michael goes to tell us about its inclusion, context, history, etc.
Avatar 1:45pm Cheyenne:

Also, I'm gonna go ahead and be 'that guy' (tho I'm a gal) - the very notion of 'proper' music being equivalent to white/european music notation/structure/etc is a way of dismissing every other type of music and by extension normalizes white supremacy. Dan, I'm gonna guess you're white (or pass as white) and were raised in a cultural environment that normalized white culture as 'standard,' 'normal,' etc. It's ok to acknowledge that you don't like something, but think critically about your biases - even when it comes to taste in music. Peace!
  1:46pm Dean:

Cage had an even more expansive conception of music. My personal prejudice, however, is that if it doesn't involve a huge choir bellowing out from the tabernacle, it ain't music.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm chresti:

As Marcel M would say "What was music?"
Avatar 1:50pm StringOFperils:

There's nothing wrong with anything Dean. That's my point. Where the fuck do people think "proper music" comes from in the first place? It comes from folk musics. The vocal line of an ancient Greek ode. The line of the voice in Plainsong. The voice that joins the wind. Rap utilizes the voice, and it initially concentrates more on one aspect of "proper" music more than others: rhythm. Like earlier forms, it sings the news, it carries the culture, the history, the now. It represents a contemporary response to the world that has direct kinship to earlier historic forms that had a similar function. As such, it has everything to do with music, that first music, upon which much later "proper music" is based.

There are SO MANY WAYS to stay involved! Writing letters, signing petitions, calling elected officials, making art, donating to bail funds, working in journalism, coding websites and apps that help legal observers and community services. Choose a lane and get in it! <3

dan, fully valid to not like or enjoy a type of entertainment, human expression. That is opinion. Yes each person should be allowed their personal preferences and to state them. Saying something is not music or the expression is not properly made is not valid. Plus context. Some days Bee Gees totally make me retch. And it can be hard to always check one self from making personal reaction or opinion into a charge against the expression's validity. I personally draw the line and in some cases will call out homophobic or sexist or drug gang glorification.

If you wanna help bail out some friends in Kentucky who were arrested today go to bailproject.org and pitch in. Protest & social justice in the time of coronavirus is totally doable. Choose your risk level and do what you can. We all gotta push!
Avatar 2:08pm WR:

PUSH!

@WR and would you go listen to a dj doing a Bee Gees set and tell him it SUX play some real music? (probably not)

Boots is involved with something that just came out i think
Avatar 2:22pm Franco Twinkie:

I was hit by a cop in NYC for the transgression of falling asleep at the library.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm The Oscar:

Afternoon! Busy working, but the Coup is so damn good. If you haven't seen it, you should check out Sorry to Bother You, which Boots Riley wrote and directed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:24pm The Oscar:

Also, the track "Pimps" by the Coup, from 1994, has an INCREDIBLE twist in the third verse which I would not dream of spoiling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:26pm Otis Fodder:

Ride that genre wave!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:27pm listener 126464:

doesn't make it alright?
Avatar 2:29pm WR:

I've read so many high praise articles/ interviews in the last couple of years regarding Janelle Monáe that l've feared hearing that recent release. Feared that I would lose trust in the sources of the hype. The track you played is enough to want me to hear more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

It's been great to hear so much Two-Tone in the last weeks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm joe:

I was lucky enough to see Janelle Monae some years ago open for No Doubt she has an amazing live presence too. That was like 10 years ago and she was amazing then I can only imagine with that decade under her belt how much more amazing she is.
  2:32pm wendy del formaggio:

YES! This Dead Kennedys song has gone through my head so often lately. Well, forever, really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:32pm joe:

Nazi punks was one of the songs on my long list for Music From Shut Ins
Avatar 2:34pm Cheyenne:

Right on, Joe & Wendy! Nazi punks SHOULD fuck off, but they keep joining police forces instead
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

The Death documentary was very good I need to watch it again.

Avatar 2:37pm WR:

Hope @2:13, personally I avoid conflict, so I wouldn't do that. But to your point, it would be valid to say, we wanna hear something else, not that Bee Gee disco phase songs are not real music like their early lovely ballads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:38pm Otis Fodder:

Dis the arms, def to defund and dem socialists milatarize. Mic drop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:39pm joe:

Also please if you are someone who supports organized labor do not let the police unions fool you into believing that pointing out that they are one of the biggest perpetrators of the police racism problem means that you are against labor. The people who are being killed and destroyed have more in common with you then the over militarized under trained thin blue line.

@WR I'm a fan of both periods, really ;)

When Scott Walker moved to kill the unions in Wisconsin, he made an exception for police unions, naturally.

WR - CONFLICT is like top 5 anarchobritwave imho.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:42pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

@WR But to be clear, my sarcasm wasn't directed at you. I think that person has wisely left.
  2:45pm Dean:

When I met our beloved host, both he and I were wearing that particular WFMU t-shirt. We had not coordinated.
  2:45pm wendy del formaggio:

What joe said at 2:39. TOTALLY. One of the historic functions of the police has been to supress worker organizing and protest, and that continues today. If you look at Jacobin and Current Affairs online magazines you can read a lot about it.

In SoCal by '81 the relatively few number of great OC punk bands were completely overshadowed by the dumbshit skinhead scenesters. It was all so different from three or four years before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:50pm joe:

@wendy I feel that is were much of the major attack has to start. They are the essential "secret socity" fraternity like boys club that are doing everything in their power to not have their ball taken away from them. They have a direct mental connection to the early NYC Tammany Hall were they were more of private military then a organization to serve public

When trump was directing his xenophobia towards Mexicans/Latins suddenly it became okay for people to yell racist shit at me and those like me on the Metro. In Los Angeles. Mind boggling.

  2:59pm Dean:

Keep in mind, however, that the powerful--wealthy capitalists--have no issue with anti-racists embracing and including POC and the poor, so long as the opportunity to divide and conquer remains available to them, as it likely will. Capital loves the chance to market itself as anti-racist, pro-LBGTQ, inclusive.
