Props to Spotify for being so open with their model. Hope this shifts some of the focus of the discussion to the publishers and their payout rates to artists, because from where I stand, keeping only 30% of their revenue seems pretty fair on Spotify’s part. Providing a service like theirs to millions of people isn’t free.
Will you come to my party?
I would like to gracefully retract my previous statement. Upon further listening, “Trouble Will Find Me” is probably one of my top 5 of the year… good god.
I keep going back to All Hell, especially for Tiffany Lou and Lookin’ Back on ’99. Could definitely tell he was onto something and couldn’t wait for a follow-up. The first single I heard had me a little worried, but the first few tracks on the album have laid those fears to rest. This shit is dope. I definitely thought that was a bagpipe too. Stoked to give the rest a listen today.
Also, yeah, didn’t that Thundercat come out like a month or so ago? I even saw it up on Spotify at one point but they took it down. Still not up today. Frustrating.
I hadn’t bothered to watch these videos until this “news” broke today, but really, what about them made anyone think he was materially involved in the album production? He looks like he just showed up for the pre-release listening party – mostly for the pizza and couch to crash on. He doesn’t even remotely attempt to add anything in these videos. That said, I didn’t really read “more traditional hip-hop album” as a diss either.
I’ve never seen Colbert struggle so hard to think of something else to ask and then just throw in the towel like that. Sort of like how I threw in the towel after a minute of that song. Seemed like a nice enough dude though.
Count me as one of the guilty, as I skipped the chance to see them for free 2 weeks ago when they opened for Youth Lagoon. Ah well…
is it weird that just reading “everybody calls me Giorgio” sent chills down my spine?
Is the part where he said “he keeps finding ways to depress us” when he “ridiculed” (Morrissey) and “mocked – by extension” (‘Gum) depression? Just making sure I have this right…
I had a dog named Corky. She was also nuts.
