More Of The Cancer That Is Killing Pop Music

Some weekend reading for you: the august New Yorker has discovered the cancer of Auto-Tune (previously on JRE). (The link seems to be broken at the moment; I blame Kottke.)

Anil Dash has a couple of great posts about The Cancer That Is Killing Pop Music (hereafter TCTIKPM): The Death of Analog, where he deconstructs Snoop Dogg’s Sensual Seduction (unrelated but interesting: Mr. Dogg’s website has a “Shizzolator” for people like me who aren’t fluent in Gangsta); and When Auto-Tune Strikes, where he presents conclusive proof that T-Pain can’t sing (unrelated: what on earth is a T-Pain?).
