Humanism and Mechanism: Hozier helps The Reluctant Psychoanalyst Contemplate the Digital World
So with this model in mind, I went to see Hozier on Sunday night; a popular Irish musician, probably in the Alt Rock category. The concert is an early father’s day present, and Hozier is an interesting artist on many levels, not least because he is the first great point of intersection in musical interest between my youngest stepdaughter and me. For as long as I have known her, she has been a devotee of pop, which I find mind-numbing when I am not shocked by the shallowness of the lyrics with their descriptions of precocious and seemingly mindless sexuality. She finds my tastes to be stodgy and lacking energy and verve. Hozier somehow seems to hit a sweet spot (one we have arrived at before with Lorde) - a place where the catchiness of the tunes is good for both of us, but there seems to be more meat on the bone than in the latest offering from Nikki Minaj.
