He’s grown…love to see an artist go in a new direction.
This ain’t no time for irony, son. Sit down, please.
Tell it like it is, Rob.
Right! This Douglas Moore cruisin’ for a bruisin’ with this list. I demand to see your credentials, sir!
This fool put Pablo Honey over TKOL…you should be ashamed of yourself sir, ashamed!
All apologies, but this is meh. And I think people who are “raving” about this — something, by the way, I find ironic, considering how subtle-a-stroke the song is — are just riding of the fumes of the xx’s last album.
Oh, and the lyrics are weak; I’ve heard better from Taylor Swift, if I may be so blunt.
Where’s “No Sense?”
Hate to sound redundant here, but this really is a great album. This sentiment by the way is coming from a person who until quite recently — until I first heard the amazing “Anything We Want” — wasn’t a fan (or at least wasn’t a big fan) of Ms. Apple. I felt *readies self for the pain of a thumbs down* that her music (mostly the instrumentals) was too ostentatious and showy — at least for my tastes. It would have to follow, then, that given the stripped down and raw nature of this album that I would find it completely agreeable, and I most certainly do.
Also,on a related note, the video for Every Single Night is absolutely amazing. I can’t for the life of me get enough of that one lyric: ” I just want to feel everything.” It’s so beautifully sung. And is it just me or does anyone think of the film Amelie when watching it? Probably just me. If she doesn’t land atop a Best Album list, she most certainly should make it atop a Best Music Video list.
I prefer the subsequent lyric: “I just wanna feel everything.” She sings it so prettiful like and the video is awemazing.
I’m not even a huge fan of Fionna Apple, but I must admit this is quite a nice tune.
I like her.
That sounded….good. Why I feel so taken aback by that fact, I’m not sure. But in any event, I will definitely be on the look out for Letur-Lefr. I haven’t seen it or the album that follows it on any “most anticipated albums” lists.
Do I dare say, though, based on a minute long instrumental, that both the EP and the LP should belong on those aforementioned lists? I do, and they should. Keep it up Frusciante!
You’d be wise to not speak so soon, sir.
Morning Bell – Radiohead
Yeah I’m a nor’easterner too by way of Philly. They play in Tennessee for Bonnaroo and tickets are amazingly still on sale, so looks like I’m going to have to drive on over there — close enough.
I second that. Really interesting sound to that one.
Beats nice…lyrics are wack. I wanna hear Kendrick Lamar rap over this.
Friday at the very bottom: Please tell me that “Dear Hunter” is a different band than Deerhunter and that the folks over at Coachella didn’t really: 1.) Typo the shit out of a well established band like Deerhunter 2.) If number 1 is correct put a well established band like Deerhunter (Dear Hunter?) lower on the bill than Ximena Siranana?
oh fudge “no more” then ten years now I get it, sorry. Fine cross out “Murray Street” and put up “Dirty” in it’s place
Yes In Rainbows definitely should be on the list as well as a number of albums by Sonic Youth.
Was “Murray Street” not a classic? That’s like my favorite album by SY
Go Ravens!!!! And if I may be pedantic, it was definitely Ray Rice who “led” us.
Anywho the track sounds alright it’s quite germane juxtaposed against all the other songs I’ve heard from him the typical laid back “smoke sumpthin” vibe. I’m on the fence a bit with him overall I mean it’s good he’s found his niche but i think he might be getting a little to comfortable there. The song ultimately gets a “meh” from me, nothing special here just a good beat (as per usual with him).
Also it’s interesting that when i saw the title i believe the name that popped into my head first was Mos Def as he used to refer to himself as that back when he was the Mos Def I most enjoyed. Never thought of the obvious connection to Mr. Hot n’ Cold Joe until now. Interesting.
I bet Fred Armisen was the one who suggested Thom Yorke in the first place. Good Stuff
