Thank you for giving me something so fitting to watch while listening to that trainwreck.
EW also released a list of the top 100 novels of all time.
Here’s a spoiler: they snubbed Steinbeck.
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea? Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band?
Jugband Blues? :(
(or is that considered to be more of a Syd Barrett piece?)
I agree with you about the use of autotune on Yeezus. For a record that predominantly packs a harsher and more raw aesthetic, its inclusion of squeaky-clean vox effects gives some of the tracks a less intimate and immediate effect than they maybe ought to have.
The lead singer sounds like the unholy child of Alanis Morisette and Billy Corgan.
That video’s not the best impression of the new band.
Here’s a better video (and not to mention a better song):
Interesting how this cover art is more fascinating and thought-provoking than some of the most Storm Thorgerson-esque albums covers out there. Smart design.
I think that “Pity Sex” is an awesome band name. And perhaps this virgin is a little naive but how exactly would the term be offensive, let alone misogynistic?
BTW, sweet song. I love how folks like Pity Sex, Mac DeMarco, Cloud Nothings and others are bringing back the sound of 90s alt-rock. It is about time for a revival.
“Black Skinhead” is cool but I wonder how much cooler it would be if MC Ride were to have done the opening screams.
