By keeping us focused on ourselves and our individual happiness, [Do What You Love] distracts us from the working conditions of others while validating our own choices and relieving us from obligations to all who labor, whether or not they love it. It is the secret handshake of the privileged and a worldview that disguises its elitism as noble self-betterment. According to this way of thinking, labor is not something one does for compensation, but an act of self-love. If profit doesn’t happen to follow, it is because the worker’s passion and determination were insufficient. Its real achievement is making workers believe their labor serves the self and not the marketplace.

nprmusic:

Hear the first track from the noisy punk band Perfect Pussy’s debut album, Say Yes to Love, due out March 18 on Captured Tracks. (And if you haven’t heard last year’s blown-out demo, yet, well… what are you waiting for?!)
