chris chu from pop etc (formerly morning benders) had got his hands dirty on this one i heard. I always liked Port anyways.
i think its this youth generation in general. Ariel has worked with a lot of wide ranging stuff i like from Sky Ferreira, to HAIM, and my favorite folk tunes from Cass Mccombs. indie-pop music in general seems to be about anything and everything retro right now. I love the 80′s sound and aesthetic so I can’t really complain. its like the coming of age generation all over again. Breakfast Club. Meanwhile mainstream radio-pop listeners have just found out about EDM via Katy Perry, Gaga, and even rap??? (Pitbull)
Can we just get like 5 new James Blakes? That’d be tight.
“everything is a remix, so steal like an artist.” There is no such thing as originality, only perspective and different colorings.
The Morning Benders
I look forward to the future of music because this guy
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OoZNENl0Cg he does say some interesting stuff here. i don’t know that he intently points out gays or whatever though he does like the topic of raping women. he does say faggot a lot but it seems more like how every teen around uses it as slang. i think this is what he wants. more publicity. more rise. more fame. there are bigger and more important things but being involved with music myself the only drawback i see is that his fans are maybe split in half. either dumb people who just advocate hate and destruction who will take it as a negative wave blah bleh blah & mainly the indie scene where kids are just like wtf is going on, this guy is crazy. and it does take you by surprise. it does grab you. im just kind of surprised it spread like wildfire. thats hard to do now days. when earl sweatshirt (tylers amigo) returns i think their next batch of songs will take a turn for the better. I used to think tylers weakness was his need to defend himself like him giving shout outs saying fuck this fuck that, when really, if he didn’t care he wouldn’t be giving shout outs. i could say his response was expected. being a fan of both groups i can say when all is said and done. just relax and realize that you are talking about kids who made it from nothing to pretty much everything. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KoIYwcmIuU&feature=related
