July 23, 2015 on Status Ain’t Hood: Future’s New Album Is Fucking Incredible

It’s definitely good/better than most of her output to date, but not billboard material (which i think is good). does song of the summer need to be top 20? i hadn’t really thought about that.

although, japandroids took the honours a few years ago, and that couldn’t have been farther from top 40.

future should get a ghostwriter, or at least a little lyrics helper

ds2 > yeezus < 311

I think you've hit the nail on the head, rjc. lyrically though standards have dropped relative to wayne's run. future has put the atmospherics on steroids while putting down substandard lyrics, but it works because people can always fall back on the excuse that his voice is like an instrument, or some shit. it's like if lil B had put all his shit exclusively on clams beats – it would have raised the bar on many a forgettable track.

The only lyric I know from ds2 after about 7 spins is from stick talk, and I made this picture to reflect it:

(That's asshole, matthew hopkins). I don't really need incredible lyrics, although that would be nice, but just making sure that the lines all flow together and not ending 3 lines in a row with the same word would be nice. Also this pattern, is getting played out:
"repeat a line, repeat a line, repeat a-repeat a line"
*trap drums*
*dirty synths*

it's consistent but kind of boring after 10 tracks – I'm flagging at blow a bag, but satisfied.

future is like the fast and the furious of music – it's decent quality and overwhelming quantity. i think you're right that future and thug are capitalizing on listening trends and drastically reduced attention spans (anyone that watched my spotify streaming would see the track change every 2 minutes). but I still wish a bit more time went into it. i guess it is what it is, and shit.

Enjoyed the write up TB. Maybe classic man for song of the summer. it’s all we’ve got.

Can we all have a discussion about Future? I’ve listened to everything. Put in a lot of time with 56 nights, especially march madness (obvs). I totally get the appeal with the content, and the sludgy, drugged out vibe it’s on. Future has got impeccable beat selection, and matched with his cadence, it’s infectious.

That said, almost once per song I hear something that actually makes me stop and make a face – it’s totally involuntary, but its because a line was so off point that it threw off the flow. This is my major beef with Future – I kind of get the feeling that he’s writing all his shit on the fly in the booth, like that p4k selector video when he freestyles off the tnght beat from like 10 years ago (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TQkl6hz_38).

I think it’s fair to make the comparison to thug’s style, where there’s this pervasive sense of “fuck it – put it out.” And I don’t mean to fall into some old head big ghost space, but I find myself wishing that a bit more time went into crafting the lyrics a bit more. what do y’all think?

July 21, 2015 on Dum Dum Girls – “Coming Down” Video Version 2 (Stereogum Premiere)

Have they ever played “fade away” live? I really enjoyed the video of them playing trouble in the message centre. makes me crave those deep cuts.

Also the new album has really aged well over the past 5 internet years (3 months IRL).

Maybe “bbhmm” could be the song of the summer? We could just do that, I guess
