hmm….well alright then
I went into this wanting to hate it, as Pet Sounds is very near and dear to me. But I actually kinda liked it, beautiful visuals and some good performances. Sure I don’t like some of the singers in it (i just don’t like Lorde’s delivery at all, too slinky/sultry),but i think it kinda worked. I also watched the ‘making of’ video and although it was commissioned by a huge media conglomerate, it seemed like a pretty sincere endeavour (produced by Ethan Johns no doubt!).
I saw these guys live a couple nights ago, clearly something special is happening here…great performance
yeah but…Island in the Sun?
The White Album
looking for some saction
Sure they don’t sound alike anymore, but they definitely used White’s sound as a springboard to achieve a certain level of success; that’s the dirty part of it. It’s kind of a “fake it til you make it” situation. I definitely think Dan Auerbach has immense talent for sure (I love that Dr. John record to death!) but fair is fair.
They needed to transpose that song in a better key to suit her voice so she could really wail in that chorus. Something tells me she would agree with me, probably my ego fantasy :p
Hey man, this is no place for sobering reality, this is the internet!! All joking aside, this essay is pretty amazing. I’d argue that trying to recapture the consequence/responsibility-free, inhibition-less feeling of childhood is why a lot of people like to get drunk every weekend. It’s all about recreating the reckless abandon of youth, a reaction to the confines of the work-week. That being said, I can’t picture a day that i’ll stop eating boxed mac n’ cheese! But then again I’m still technically in my 20s and don’t care about my health..
