How Long
Gone

a month ago ep. 252 feat. Kelefa Sanneh 01:12:01

Kelefa Sanneh is a journalist and music critic from New York. From 2000 to 2008, he wrote for the New York Times, and he’s been on staff at The New Yorker since then. His new book Major Labels is out now. We had the pleasure of chatting with him about our show in Austin, some talent updates for our NY show, being an old fashioned author who doesn’t make bucket hats, Connecticut hardcore, his parents both teaching at Yale, when anarchy stops being fun, hip hop as a transgressive art form, tiny desk concerts, the evolution of dance music from the hated form of disco to the hated form of progressive house, the problem with being genre-less, music’s bygone rituals of scarcity, and why just being interesting isn’t enough.
