I really love Pom Pom, I really love it so much and I think it’s great that there is people whose taste I’ve learnt to respect that find it awful.
This one or Ariel Pink’s Picture Me Gone. Entre les deux mon coeur balance.
Good Lord! Makes you wanna punch yourself in the face.
What a terrific and underestimated record.
To say that Nabil and Hiro Murai are two of the best video directors currently working is an absolutely ridiculous statement. In the last two years (and from the top of my head) people like Canada, isaiah Seret, Xavier Dolan, Emily Kai Bock, Eric Wareheim, Keith Schofield, Megaforce, Jonas & François, Cyriak, Fleur & Manu, Yoann Lemoine, AG Rojas, Romain Gravas and Andreas Nilsson are all far better music video directors than this overrated pair.
As Norm MacDonald would say: Good Lord, that was a ridiculous thing to read.
I find ludicrous to blame Kozelek for the whole publicity of this episode. It was websites like Stereogum who did that at the beginning and he simply amplified it, riding the viral wave. There is so much morality and bullshit around music today that it makes me honestly sick.
I’ve been listening to this today and it’s such an amazing record: heartfelt, beautifully performed, sung and produced. I did enjoy his first solo output, but this is, to my ears, a much more accomplished record than Lisandre: it flows better, has better songs and the lyrics, god damned, they just hit so deeply inside of me.
It’s not about sound fidelity but being able to perform at all.
