In case you haven't been following, all this week, Rob Harvilla, Zach Baron, Sean Fennessey, Maura Johnston and I took part in a critical roundtable series of posts at the Village Voice's Sound of the City blog. It's amazing to be able to write in such great company (I respect all of these people as both writers and friends) and between the five of us, we covered a hell of a lot of the year in music. My particular entries discussed mostly house and R&B, with the latter containing a particularly brutal screed aganist the 2010 Chris Brown revival (I don't want to say I hate anyone...but I fucking hate that guy and his shitty music). Apparently, it ruffled feathers of his fans (I'm staying out of the comments section, but hearing good things about it).
Anyway, it's been a little light on the writing around here this week -- this is just to say why.
