“Taking to the internet to find like-minded souls is now so widespread it’s almost a cliché. But when you’re a queer rapper or a turquoised-haired punk it makes all the sense in the world. You can curate your own reality using your own art (or reblogging others). Unique voices are celebrated. Just look at how many followers Kilo Kish’s tumblr rap, Le1f’s flamboyant fashion sense and the Sega Genesis-inspired dolphins of seapunk have racked up over the past few years.”
Huh? What the f*ck is seapunk? I’ve never heard of that term/genre before. And I haven’t really heard of the abovementioned artists either. Okay, I have read/seen the name Kilo Kish on a few random blogs before but I never knew she was a artist making music. And anything that was ever written about her, never really attracted me to click on her name to find out more. As for the other two artists featured in this episode, there are more than a couple of ‘wtf?’ moments. Just being honest.
Watch it and you’ll see. You might even agree… (Or disagree. Whatever.)
I’ll be honest: I’m not really happy with the content during this interview. The artists themselves seem like they are still trying to figure out what their sound is. And that’s something, in this case, not really worth blogging about.
Here’s hoping next week’s webisode is better.
