Just more mainstream pandering from Stereogum. I remember when you guys used to cover good music. Nowadays its just all poppy crap.
Braver one than I.
I have an absolutely horrible confession to make. My Dad bought me the Echoes: Best of collection years ago right at the precipice of the Pink Floyd binge that helped define my taste in music (seriously I can wax about Floyd for years, but am also aware that I’d be living in a cliche so let’s avoid that shall we) and one of my favorites at the time was “Marooned”. Even at the tender age of 14 I knew “Sorrow”, High Hopes”, “Keep Talking”, and “Learning to Fly” all fell in the same category of schmaltzy Phil Collins’ …But Seriously-esque disasters. But I fucking loved “Marooned” and was appalled to discover it was off of Division Bell. Hell I’m pretty sure my love for “Marooned” led me to Emeralds (RIP), one of my all time favorite bands.
My point is that if Endless River turns out to be mostly “Marooned” style instrumentals, the part of me who wishes I was still an awkward gawky teenager instead of an awkward gawky adult will actually enjoy it quite a bit. But the moment David Gilmour’s saccharine psychedelically sad-sack songwriting shows up I am so gone.
If I was a dictator I would torture my political prisoners by making them listen to “High Hopes” on repeat. That song is weaponized high grade schmaltz.
I actually kinda like Perfect Pussy though, they remind me of No Age circa Nouns which is never a bad thing in my book. I think Graves is kind of looking for things to be mad at, but I dig her music. Amanda Palmer on the other hand is a showboating carney.
Hey is that mixed cloth fabric you’re wearing?!?!?! OFF WITH YO HEAD
