The Fountains of Paradise by Arthur C. Devdas by Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay Swallows and Amazons by Arthur Ransome One element inevitably serves as an anchor, something to hold on to as you drift further and further into the music.
Autechre had amazing textures that appealed to me right away, which helped. For a record to become a project, it's useful to have something to draw you in initially.

Some sound that's particularly intriguing, a single tune that works, a bridge that catches your ear. Took me a couple of years, in fact, of coming back to the record when I wasn't sure what else I wanted to hear. Eventually, once Mother made sense, I branched out to their other records many of which made better starting points, it turned out and finally understood how striking and original a band they really were. Sometimes, though, there's no initial handle, and I hold on to a record completely out of faith.
A few shelves below Autechre's Confield sits the complete works of no wave legends DNA; I haven't put it on since those first couple spins around the time it came out a couple years ago, but suffice to say, I despise this music. Listening to it makes me realize how much I prefer noise that sounds like the machines are controlling the people and not the other way around. In this case, the thing keeping the record on my shelf is the degree to which people I respect hear something in it. Maybe in another decade it'll sound better.
When it happens, and difficult music becomes easier, it can be almost embarrassing later to contemplate, like going back to your middle school and seeing how short the lockers are. And when I first bought it, having been exposed only to Coltrane's contributions to Kind of Blue and Miles Davis' records on Prestige, A Love Supreme sounded atonal and nutty, like nothing I imagined music could be.
See a Problem?
This "free jazz" is some bizarre shit, I thought to myself. Which now sounds silly to those weaned on Wolf Eyes and Deerhoof and abrasive punk rock. But the soloing on A Love Supreme to my virgin ears sounded detached from anything I understood about chords and melody.
I love it now, but then it seemed an unfathomable mess. As I write this, I'm still working on Coltrane's Om , trying to get my head around what this music is supposed to be doing. Anthony Miccio's Dio essay is the greatest piece of writing ever.
Kandia Crazy Horses Stephen Stills is the worst piece of writing ever. What a coincidence they are in the same book. Feb 08, Cindy Widner rated it it was ok Recommends it for: music-crit nerds. Much like Stranded, the original exercise, which came out in uneven but with some great, great, inspirational stuff that reminds one why being a crit-nerd's not all bad.
