omg he's so awful. look how pleased he is with his contrived and obviously forced attempt at 'throwing shade', ugh. he should stick to making lite pop, no one cares what he has to say in interviews. oh and he looks like a thumb with a haircut.

January 12, 2016 on Sam Smith Doesn’t Know Who Thom Yorke Is, Hasn’t Heard Radiohead’s “Spectre”
wow this is gorgeous! even if it's a bit off-beat for the usual bond fare i can't believe it got turned down in favour of sam smith. well, i can, obviously, but still... also, still waiting for björk to do a bond theme too. maybe if she hadn't already recorded 3 amazing bond-esque songs in the first place... (play dead, bachelorette and wanderlust)

white people reading a black artist's lyrics in a posh accent? wow, groundbreaking comedy right here... -_-

December 15, 2015 on Watch Amy Schumer, Bryan Cranston, Kristen Wiig, & More Recite The Lyrics To “Hotline Bling”
honestly i agree with her, the fact they couldn't even be bothered to get the song names and artists correct shows how sloppily and disrespectfully this project was slapped together. there's nothing wrong with western artists experimenting and delving into eastern music, as a lot of the artists covered on this record were doing at the time with western styles, so it makes sense for western acts to rediscover these artists and bring it full ciurcle, but as a long term fan of iranian and arab and thai psyche music it's incredibly disrespectful to not even credit the artists properly. like well done you got a couple of compilations... and i'm sorry guys but the whole project (sexwitch, shamanism vibes) is so very reductive of myriad different cultures and times, so she also has a point there, much as white people hate hearing about it...

October 28, 2015 on Natasha Khan’s Sexwitch Accused Of Cultural Appropriation
why are people complaining about his reasoning for using what could arguably be an anachronism? (baring in mind there is nothing saying the video is set in the present day anyway) if she'd been speaking on an iphone or a galaxy whatever people would have accused them of shallow product placement... ugh

dude, i hardly think björk would count joanna newsom as a personal friend and also invite her to perform at many of her live shows as a support act if she thought newsom was just ripping her off. also, being a long term fan of both, there really isn't anything that similar about them other than the fact they are both very creative and relatively peerless music figures who have non-conventional styles. comparing the two all the time just cos they are 'kooky' or whatever is just sexist garbage.

October 23, 2015 on Premature Evaluation: Joanna Newsom Divers
i spent the summer in palestine studying arabic for my degree and even my friend ahmad's super conservative elderly father LOVES this song [clearest blue] and plays it all the time (and that was just the pitchfork fest bootleg) and he normally only listens to islamic recitals. so i think the problem is with your co-workers haha!

i think it's unfair to say doherty's track is the album's lowest moment, especially after apologising for trashing the 'two dudes' two years ago and pointing out how they are definitely a cohesive unit. seems like a bit of a snub. doherty's track is great, it has such a vibey bouncing melody

that drop is absolutely utterly monumental, pure euphoria. i played the pitchfork live bootleg a gazillion times and i was worried that the studio version wouldn't quite match up to that recording but it does not disappoint!

so lyric videos are basically just videos now.

August 17, 2015 on Chvrches – “Leave A Trace” Video
hardly surprising. which means that by far the most shocking piece of information in this story is that a museum in detroit actually curated a kid rock exhibition... dear lord!

i was expecting him to make a comment on how marriage equality has been used as a carpet policy to blot out all the other arguably more pressing issues in queer politics, or how ireland still has dodgy abortion issues. but no. fur farming yes. transporting live animals... unfortunately until the whole country has gone vegan it's a bit of a stretch

it's a cool concept and has interesting messages behind it yes, but is it not a bit, erm, ageist?

exploding whale is pretty tame compared to some of the song titles on illinois to be fair

wow, this was beautiful, also, she starts in the position she is in where black lake video ends and seemingly due to her outfit, ends where stone milker begins

March 16, 2015 on Björk – “Family” Moving Album Cover
this is a shame, but at least it seems all the bad reviews are in agreement that it is not björk's body of work that is undeserving of a museum exhibition, but rather that the exhibition itself is poorly executed... fingers crossed it has another incarnation somewhere in europe or japan that does her work more justice

March 8, 2015 on Art Critics Hate Björk’s MoMa Retrospective
well no cos i am not particularly a fan of those artists so wasn't aware of it, but yes in principle i am against those too. i am sure plenty of those artists' fans spoke up on their behalf. posting stolen music is wrong. especially when it's been stolen this early
