Flavorwire Interviews Pitchfork Managing Editor
Flavorwire (cultural news and critique from Flavorpill) conducted a nice interview with Pitchfork Managing Editor Mark Richardson in regards to Animal Collective and Richardson's 9.6 review.
[12:26] TheBeard4904: yeah, i think radiohead is an interesting comparison
[12:27] TheBeard4904: in our review, we said that this record is animal collective’s bid to take things to a radiohead-like level
[12:27] TheBeard4904: this sort of class of acceptable weirdo groups that are allowed into the mainstream, people like bjork, radiohead, beck
[12:28] TheBeard4904: do you think that’s an overreach?
[12:28] Mark_Pitchfork-666: that is something I have wondered about with this one, whether it will cross over to people who don’t follow music as closely
[12:29] Mark_Pitchfork-666: my initial thought is that I’m a little bit skeptical of it happening, because there are still a lot of things about A.C. that are pretty strange
[12:29] Mark_Pitchfork-666: one thing with Radiohead, is that every album had least a few tunes that could fairly be described as “rock songs.” you could tell what all the instruments were, there are guitars, etc., but that’s not really true with this record
