Much as I mentioned taking up genres at the end of the last week's session, I ended up choosing reading matter that problematises genres rather than confirms them. Chuck Eddy's "Everything Rock Vs. Collage Rock" and David Keenan's "Childhood's End" (the article that defined "hypnagogic pop") are uploaded as PDFs on the course site under the Study Materials section. Additionally, here's a Guardian list of (faux?) genres from a couple of years ago and (in Estonian) Madis Aesma's Yacht Rock primer.
