This is pretty hard to listen to - I've don't think I've actually managed to listen to the whole thing in one go.

Joanna fucking Newsome is by far the thing you talk about not liking the most.

You should be listening to her all the time rather than sticking to things that challenge you in a way that you are comfortable with.
I'd rather be mouth fucked by nazis unconscious.

Besides which she'd probably be grand if she sang like a human.

That Venetian Snares is alright.

So, is there music that bands make purposely to be unlistenable or is there just stuff that ends up that way?

To them it's almost certainly
A. Listenable and they can't understand what other people's problems with it are.

and

B. Not nearly as "extreme" as they hope it would be when they started.

But, that's the all attempts to do any art

"It's beautiful"

"Yeah, but in my head it would be more beautiful, and I failed to do that idea justice"

Substitute beautiful for any adjective and that's the life of an artist of any kind I suppose.

Maybe when you do something perfect, you quit forever.

J Newsom's music is as strong in terms of melodic line as it is interesting in terms of harmonic organisation - that is to say -VERY! I like her lyrics too. Of all the newer pop and rock people operating today i don't know anyone more musically strong and ambitious and so touched by grace - similar quality to Tim Buckley and Laura Nyro. She is a joy and haters are missing out.

But she sounds like a cat getting the ride of it's life.
