When the local weekly starts making connections between Alan Greenspan and the “electro-clash” and the semi-acoustic/psychedelic “folk” revival, they’ve got my attention!
The idea behind the article is that:
Alan Greenspan has set radically low interest rates in recent years, fueling gonzo speculation of real estate. The subsequent inflation has transformed cities across America and displaced millions of poor people. As a parallel, we have witnessed the rise of two paradigmatic indie-music movements in the last five years: “electro-clash” and its successor, the semi-acoustic/psychedelic “folk” revival—movements based on the absence of space.
I’m bet most of my readers hadn’t seen that connection before The Stranger pointed it out! 🙂
