Me on Grimes on LDR: “literally the most flagrant use of hyperbole i’ve heard in a while”
You said exactly what I wanted to, except in a manner that didn’t garner endless downvotes. I am curious to give this a once through just on the basis of Tom’s write up, but I don’t think I’m gonna like it for the aforementioned reasons.
Tom’s characterization of her in the second paragraph – “A coastal-elite pillhead, a girl who strings rich men along and falls for drug-dealer dirtbags.” Etc… Nicely written, but I cannot for the life of me fathom what is remotely interesting about this “character,” or why I should give a shit about her problems. This individual is, to borrow Wesley’s language, lame as fuck. The lyrics are gonna pull me right away from whatever enjoyment I may be getting from the music.
And I’ll bite constantino- I may be the only individual on the internet (though certainly not among my friends) who thinks tune-yards produce just about the most irritating music I’ve heard. Be a quirky white girl from Connecticut, make grating “wee-ooo” fire truck noises, put on a loop, sing about what it’s like blah blah rasta, rinse, repeat. Proceed to garner critical acclaim.
What are you, an avid fan of Iggy Azalea, Ne-Yo, O-Town and Coldplay?
Glad to see Chris DeVille still listens to real music.
You had to slip that Drake mention in there didn’t you, you Benedict Arnold mother fucker.
That’s devastating, Rob
*failed to produce
Pretty funny – if I asked the same question a while ago I would’ve been downvoted into oblivion by the stereogum skrillex army, who have now been reduced to chirping crickets. I guess like many new release artists fawned over on this site from time to time he ceased to produce anything of lasting substance : / HMMMMM
Lulz you guys remember when people thought skrillex mattered for like five minutes
And what a good screen capture too
Coming up next week on stereogum: think pieces on Lady Gaga’s musicianship and indie-minded performance artistry
