In which Carrie Brownstein reminds us why she's cooler than you and me by giving Madonna the NPR treatment. When she tells us how she discovered music with "fewer filters and disguises, less affect, greater intensity, and most of all, substance" after the apostasy of her youth, it's as if she never listened to her former band's "Milkshake & Honey" and "Combat Rock," both of which have more affect, more filters and disguises, and less intensity in their quest for substance. But she knew this already – The Woods has a ditty called "Entertain" (get it? Irony!) that could only have been recorded for a valedictory record; the extra time off meant she got to watch Classic VH-1 once in a while.
