Pitchfork review the new Tricky EP. Key sentence which makes me distrust this piece (talking about Juxtapose): “While probably worthwhile record for those that prefer Tricky’s hip-hop material, it seemed largely inessential for a fan of his more creative output.”. I don’t know, something about the ‘hip-hop’/’more creative’ juxtaposition there rubbed me up the wrong way. (cf the notorious indie piece, point #17). Letters page is still great, though.

Infelicitous sentences #2: “In order to join the fray I really need to commit to going to a dance club and just sit and watch and listen and take notes.”. James also makes some points about something I wrote which I’ll reply to later but now it is the end of my lunch break and I hear that grindstone calling.
