She definitely loves the Oculus Rift. And her hair.
I have mixed feelings about this video. It’s sexist, but also so funny. And the track is great.
So many negative reviews on this album, I mean, it’s just a band suffering. We really needed this statement to clarify why he’s not a dork. Sayin “no comment” or “I don’t care” would have been so much harder.
Mwah ah ah ah ah.
And don’t listen to it on shuffle mode too : )
After a few listens, it sounds like they took an even more atsmopheric approach, even more Radiohead-ish sometimes, a bit of Massive Attack also, but mosly Warpaint-ishly great. Also, if you have any chance of seeing them live, buy a ticket now. They’re incredible.
Paracosm is great but Washed Out live is still boring, even more with a full band of bored hipsters.
Ok so if I get it right, The walkmen are playin whenever there’s some event they feel they need to participate to ?
That’s some weird hiatus.
Why bring Aubrey Plaza to play sax if her part is buried in the mix ? damn, I waited the whole song to hear a tiny sax track in the back …
Anyway the song is a funny sunny moment, so there’s that. (And Aubrey Plaza, doin nothing for 3 min, is still mesmerizing)
“Look, I got shit loads of money and I’m not afraid to show it … Oh wait, I forgot, merry christmas and STAY PUNK”.
Kanye is the biggest snake beatin his tail in the music world. Makes me laugh and annoys me depending on the day.
For Christmas, be generous, send Chan some spare money.
I’d say, ok, the guy is really annoying as a rapper (even in Community, he was ok at first, but got annoying fast) but when you have to write the news, you keep opinion to yourself, or at least you try to !
it’s a pity she chose one of the weakest song of the album. Still a good performance (she seems a bit nervous though)
Greta Gerwig dancing on Afterlife with kids jumping like school is over, Win Butler mocking Kanye, Odd Future playing in a fake tiny club, Lena Dunham writing an Avicii video that looks just like a classic Girls episode (whinning egotistical unemployed middle class people).
God, is it a crime if I use the word “hipster party” this time ? Cause I got nothing better.
steal* a vinyl. Sorry, just wakin up =>
Maybe people would have backed Yannis if he didn’t sound like a douche since his first interview. But even if he was a nice guy, saying you should buy a vinyl and stop using spotify is like saying you should play music et stop listening to it.
That’s just insane/stupid nonsense.
Also, I use spotify, I buy vinyls, cds, and t shirts, and I wouldn’t buy more without the use of spotify.
Radiohead is not in the top ten, and Arctic Monkeys get a better place. This shit is just trolling.
wait, I checked with my opinion, he said “yes”
I assure you, If you speak french like I do, there’s already too much of her singing (her part in Joan Of Arc is a bit ridiculous but that’s the only “bad” track of the album for me)
Ok, so maybe Tom Cruise-related comparisons are better than Yeezus, but Ghost Protocol was crap. Now I’m gonna read the whole evaluation.
I’m kind of wondering if most of you were already convinced before listening to the thing, cause on first listens (4 exactly) I really think it’s their least interesting work to date. Not to say it’s shameful or shit, but I don’t feel the emotionnal impact I had with every other one. It’s missing something really, I think a big part of that is the lyrics which are often repetitive and lack depth, after a huge lyrics-based album (the suburbs).
Also, I’m missing guitars sometimes, not to say they don’t make great songs with electronics and synths (Afterlife, Reflektor, Here comes the night time), but I wish the only guitars we hear in this albums would be a bit more upfront, like the ones in Afterlife.
Anyway, I’m digging half of it right now, hope to like more after a few listens, but I already know it’s not the concept album I was hoping for (but hell, The Suburbs gave me exactly what I hoped for, can’t touch perfection twice …)
It’s part of the whole “Weird art-school project” thing. I admit it annoys me a bit, but hell, if the album is great, I don’t mind them touring under the “Reflektors” moniker. Also, “Normal Person” is bad ass, even though I still don’t know if the lyrics are ironic (cause Win criticizing art school ideology in The Suburbs and then saying “Attention they want you to be normal!” is kinda contradictory, isn’t it ?).
Yeah, I love to over-analyze lyrics, especially from this band.
I would pay for a vinyl compiling his demos. Hope it gets out before the end of his career cause even after listening to Age Of Adz a thousand times (yeah, it’s about that many) I appreciated this demo like little gem.
Just a little mistake in the article: it’s WILL not WIN who was interviewed and talked about the making of “Afterlife”.
Is there a less annoying band on earth ? Man these bad heavy metal guitars, this candy ass singing mixed with half ass rapping, and now they’ve got horns ! I can’t wait for the banjo solos on the next album.
The interview was funny but the fake song … meh (also, drums with no drummer ?)
