The Vocoder Revival, drawing the comparison – obvious but one which had passed me by – between the fact that Vocoders are all over 00s pop like measles and the 1970s wah-wah boom. A thought occurs to me: possibly the Vocoder plague is a subconscious reaction to the ProTooling of pop. Since the tracks being made are so ‘artificial’ now anyway, why not accelerate than unreality by fucking over the voices completely? Well, no, probably it’s just that Cher had a big hit with a Vocoder single, damn.
