METZ goes “on the record” with Rhapsody to talk about Sonic Youth’s classic album Daydream Nation. Although I’m sure the band listens to great music, I’m left wondering if they’ve actually ever heard the album. Listen to their vague answers of “I enjoy that record as well. I like the songs quite a lot. The music.”
It reminds me of a scenario we saw earlier this year at Coachella, when people were asked about fake band names and if they were excited to see them at Coachella. What followed was a series of vague answers ... Watch that video below.
Then again, maybe that’s exactly what METZ was doing here ... performance art as interview. Take the motif of the fake Coachella bands and play off the interviewer with “canned” vague answers empty enough that they could be applied to any album.
