Reactions my dad has to contemporary music

  • On Kanye West: "Someone needs to tell these people [Kanye, Jay-Z, Rick Ross, et al.] they're not descended from pharaohs."
  • On Vampire Weekend: "Too poppy for me."
  • On the Gaslight Anthem and Fake Problems: "That's Tom Waits [influence] right there."
  • On Lady Gaga: "Is Lady Gaga a man or a woman?"
  • On Radiohead: "I prefer music that can be reproduced live."
  • On the Strokes: "They went L.A."
  • On Adele: "She killed Amy [Winehouse]."
  • On Arctic Monkeys: "I'm impressed by them."
