In honor of the Genius’ Liquid Swords performance at the El Rey this Saturday night, I have an article in the new LA Weekly, analyzing the unimpeachable brilliance of the record and why nearly 15 years after its release it’s regarded as one of the genre’s finest.  It’s not really my place to say whether it’s good or not, but I had more fun writing this piece than almost anything else I’ve written. Thanks also need to be said to the infamous Barry Schwartz of Disco Vietnam for helping me decipher an album that manages to be both very accessible and completely impenetrable. Pause.
