hello, little thing! where did you come from!
from the sky!
neat! i like the way you sound. you sound like silky alginate passion
that metaphor was a little forced-quirky, wasn’t it?
uh … so tell me about yourself
my name is “Jaago” by Lifafa! my genre on apple music is listed as “Electronic” but i am much more than that, i think
i think so too. what all is the purpose of such a vague signifier? what on earth am i meant to understand about the album’s content from seeing that?
well, that there are non-analog sounds in me, i guess — a lot of them!
fair enough! i accept that there is perhaps not really much of a “genre” for what you are, and what’s there is more of a placeholder than anything, cause we’re supposed to be in some kind of Post-Genre world now anyways, right, what with the internet having this unfathomably large repository of music for any old schmuck to find and be inspired by, instead of the old days where you were limited to what was, like, at the record store, or what your friends at the time were fucking with, or whatever
are you going on a Music Writer’s Tangent?
oh, heavens no! not in front of company. i’ll save that for my blog.
you have a blog?
yeah! i listen to sounds and i describe how i feel about the sounds
why did you phrase it like that? are you ashamed of your work? do you feel the need to abstract it to me in some kind of false-humility “haha it’s nothing much”-type way?
i don’t appreciate this
you should tell them about me. on your blog.
because i’m good! i’m an excellent piece of work! i am so excellent! just listen to me!
i gotta give it to you there. you do sound amazing. you’re this, like, supple mess of fog and brick and mortar, shaped into a swan
what on earth is that supposed to mean?
i don’t know. it seemed appropriate at the time.
you read too many pitchfork reviews huh
shut up! metaphors are COOL
you’re a *reads the pitchfork Kid A review once* meme waiting to happen
nuh uh. dork
you’re just mad because i can express my feelings creatively, without cynicism, and
whatever oh my god! just feature me on your blog already, music boy
ok. you do sound beautiful, after all. especially your track “Mere Saath”. what a stunner!
