Find Me On:
Before this comment section develops into a flamewar (no pun intended), I would just like to express my grievances for all those tiny record labels who will now have an even harder time making good profit during these increasingly recessional times.
This event was a true crime and an even greater tragedy.
No, his/her opinion can’t be “just that” when trinity says some toolish bullshit (like claiming that AC always play their least poppy songs at these sort of gigs).
“Summertime Clothes” was the most convention jam on MPP and – correct me if I’m wrong – YCCOM is fairly easy to sing-along to. Plus, the only reason why “#1″ was performed on Conan was because the most of the songs on Strawberry Jam would be too long or too ordinary.
You can call their performances crap and us dumb fanboys wouldn’t give two shits but to make blatant lies to criticize music that you can’t bob your head deserves some flak.
No regrets; the responses I got were hilarious.
You don’t have to pay to attend a late-night performance like this, so none of your cash would be wasted on this “BS”. And by the way, if you liked the record then how could you call this “BS”? Because there was some spacey intro at the beginning?
Ugh, seeing that misogynistic symbol of mediocre video-gaming in your avatar makes your comment all the worse.
Cheap riffs, insipid lyrics, repetition like you wouldn’t believe, a slap-dash production…
Oh who am I kidding? I’ll probably get addicted to these two jams after three listens. F u , Williams. >:(
lol, the Aquabats.
Well, this is not strickly a “Panda Bear song”; Lennox completed it for a pal. Unless Noah wants to pull a Kanye and release a collaborative effort on Tomboy, don’t be surprised to see this jam treated as nothing more than a B-side.
But “Atiba Song” is definitely my favorite post-Pitch song so far and it gives me a little more hope for his upcoming LP.
Ariel Pink did once admit that most of his music is not meant to be performed live and he is probably aware of his limited…um…exterior talents. Pink is a camp-tacular songwriter above all else.
That said, I saw him in Montreal and everyone in the audience had a blast. The band was terrific and he was being quite the showman, interacting with the audience and grooving to the music with more passion and enthusiasm than most artists that I have seen live.
It sucks that his band wasn’t backing him up in NY. But judging from the description in the article, he probably made the best out of his circumstances, lol.
All you naysayers are bonkers. Shock-value, exaggerated/conscious misogyny and elements of horror are nothing new but I would be hard pressed to come across another MV that pulls off a deadpan, Lynchian, and surprisingly transcendent atmosphere like “Monster” does (even if Jay-Z’s segment is as uninspired on video as it is in words).
I would love to see Jake Nava venture out of making MVs for pop-artists.
Entertaining video, but it makes me wonder what a freaky-ass place the closet must be…
Oh, and remove “All the Trees”. I don’t know how that got in there. : /
A few (maybe obvious) suggestions…
-All the Trees of the Field Will Clap Their Hands
-Anthems for a Seventeen Year-Old Girl
-Explain It To Me
-Hope There’s Somebody
-The Predatory Wasp of the Palisades Is out to Get Us!
-Talking Sh-t About a Pretty Sunset
-True Love Will Find You In the End
-Viõrar Vel Til Loftárasa
-Waiting For a Superman
* = all the ballads from “Let It Be” would also work
Yeah, ’cause undermining the theme of remembrance is absolutely hilarious.
Judging from some of these comments, people are still missing the point of this experiment.
Isn’t the track supposed to be a moment of silence?
If only Scott Thompson was younger…
“Production”, to me, are the choices made in the studio that concern how to compose and record a song. This (to me, at least) refers to what kind of instruments and/or samples will be used, what instrumental parts should be louder or quieter than the rest, how to layer all the music together, how the equalization settings should be fixed, etc.
I’m no major music connoisseur or anything but it’s not hard to tell that there are many cool elements to “Too Much”, but the strongest melody (the vocal part) is mostly drowned by all the less interesting sounds flying at you. It’s an ambitious and enjoyable track, for sure, but the production is just….well…TOO MUCH!
The live track is definitely a better example of the kind of charming pop song this probably is underneath all the overwrought chaos.
The production on this song is a bit…too much?
And that’s coming from a guy with a Super Mario avatar
Beck’s riding the chillwave. :)
The song could use more distortion, though.
Canada, plz! :-D
An article devoted to samples of upcoming music reminds me of how M.I.A.’s album was being over-hyped.
Let’s hope that Tomboy’s “premature evaluation” is a little more enthusiastic…
M.I.A. drank a little too much…
“Shitty taste in music”?
Why would you say that? I’m intrigued.
“Surfer’s Hymn” – according to an official setlist paper that leaked on CollectedAnimals – is an official title. An awesome one, too.
Judging from the boots, the songs “Last Night at the Jetty”, “You Can Count On Me”, and (yes) “Surfer’s Hymn” are going to be some of the year’s best tracks from any group or artist. No hyperbole there.
This article should just be re-written completely.
Having the “Cool Jumper” demo there is so unnecessary. Unless the name of the song has changed, it’s not on the tracklist for [i]King of the Beach[/i]. Ugh…
