Steve Albini on Odd FutureAug 15 2011

I'm an avowed fan of musicians writing critically of other musicians (see Pat Metheny on Kenny G), so this post by Steve Albini on Odd Future is right in my wheelhouse. Steve is not a fan, but I like the post for its 'What is Art?' tone in the second half.

I am well aware, thanks, that good people can make ugly art and that ugly people can make good art. Ultimately the function of art is to express something and move an idea from one person to another, and the tools of that can include revulsion and discomfort.
