This isn’t beef, it’s just someone noticing that the new beach house album is good but pretty non-confrontational. It’s just more of their last album’s sound, which is fine, but not that interesting to fly-lo. He’s on another cosmic level.
Canonical blindspots… dig…. a got a bunch of those
It’s thanksgiving and we should be grateful that we even get to talk about music
Don’t get me wrong though, this guy is a dick. There is rarely a good reason to be that hostile when it comes to criticism.
You said it. A lot of what this list is getting at rings pretty true. I liked the Bon Iver album, I think a lot of people including myself got really excited about it when it came out, but it fell flat after more that a few listens. Such is the case with a lot of the albums on this list (St. Vincent, PJ Harvey). They certainly aren’t bad, they just don’t deserve as much appraisal as they have gotten when compared with the several highly successful albums that have come out this year. Subjectively speaking, the Björk album doesn’t belong on a list like this, but everyone’s gonna have their beef yo.
What about all the music I like?
I could have sworn I heard the actual song “Sæglópur” in a video game ad two or three years ago.
Oh yeah, Moonface
Wasn’t that Happy Birthday record really good? I thought it was. Also, The Bonnie “Prince” Billy and The Cairo Gang record was one of my favorites from last year and of Oldham’s career .
