An interesting thought about "weird" music

Music writer and broadcaster Jennifer Lucy Allan shared an interesting thought about "weird" music in a Music Journalism Insider interview: "I think there’s something deeply conservative about pointing out something’s weird, I always imagine it being said in inverted commas, or with a sneer. Even worse is using it with pride to distance yourself from so-called pop music. It’s not weird music, it’s unfamiliar music—often unfamiliar to you. The logical conclusion of this is a stagnation of the mind and the ear. Total nightmare".
