Taylor Swift and Aphex Twin…well Aphex Swift of course

October 28, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized 

David Rees has made an album of Aphex Twin / Taylor Swift mashups, because they both have great production and, at least in his view, ‘Taylor Swift is as scary as Aphex Twin’:

“We’ve got to acknowledge that Taylor Swift is sort of terrifying,” writes Rees. “Aphex Twin is famously camera shy, and employs a lot of cryptic/creepy imagery in his videos. Of course, I wouldn’t describe Taylor Swift as camera-shy … but her incredible poise and superhuman competence are, to me, just as alien and intimidating as Aphex Twin’s photoshopped leering ghoul-faces. It’s a cliche to describe a celebrity as controlled and masterful as Taylor Swift as robotic, but I think there’s some truth there, especially in an age when we assume — rightly or wrongly — any pop singer who hits a high note did it with the help of a computer.”
