I hate the concept of the "guilty pleasure" like the music you like and fuck everyone else, don't let a scene or preconceived notions dictate your own personal tastes. I listened to the fuck out of Lily Allen yesterday because the girl can fucking sing, no fucks given.
I feel the same way. I like what I like and others can think what they want of it.
I think a lot of people don't treat "guilty pleasures" as legitimately they are guilty and hiding it, more like "this is the artist that is the least like the music I usually listen to".
Agreed with tomwaghorn; not exactly "guilty pleasures" but just a different facet of a well rounded musical capacity. For the sake of discussion though, Jay Som's new album is quite excellent, and I'm looking forward to Lorde's new release.
