Rick Rubin on Lefsetz Letter
rr: I’m unsure how to penetrate today’s musical landscape. I know there’s good stuff out there. But who do you trust? Maybe you’re listening to the wrong stuff. While you’re playing some alternative album over and over again, it turns out some country record is the shit. You can only play one record at a time, but there’s seemingly infinite choice. And no map. Just charlatans imploring you to spend your time, and that’s the most precious currency you’ve got. I’d like to know what it’s like to be young, under twenty, to have grown up in this context. Is it any more comprehensible to kids? Are we crippled by our history? Or is it truly just a world of singles. If so, why is everybody making albums? Who is listening to them? And why do they think anybody who’s not a hard core fan will? And even hard core fans… If you don’t get it immediately, you drift off, to something else. Maybe a video game.

s: we need better music maps.
