Quote of the Day 3/3/15

“To my mind, it is its very amenability to ‘being heard again and again and again’ which corroborates the claim that pop music is a refrain, for one of the defining features of the refrain is its inexpressiveness. Deleuze & Guattari say the refrain is pure content that awaits expression. Pop is like that; it too awaits expression.”– Ian Buchanan, “Deleuze and Pop Music”
