I haven’t enjoyed a Xiu Xiu track this much in ages, and I really liked the last couple of albums.
Maybe enjoyed isn’t the best word, but you know what I mean.
Not only was this thing surprisingly awesome, but it reminded me how great pizza is. Wow, what a good food.
this is just great
what does this mean for chk chk chk??
he dropped the motherfuckin’? but without that it’s nothing…!
Bonnie and Dawn also didn’t call their album ‘Foreverly’… eughhh…
god dammit.. on fire LATELY..
Man this guy’s on fire later. Except when he’s covering I’m on Fire.
For a second there I thought you meant the Sudanese-Australian rapper Bangs had made this video.
Might’ve been a little bit different
damn you geo-blocking.. I just want to know if this is an updated version of the Lifter Puller track ‘Let’s Get Incredible’ with slightly different lyrics.. anyone?
This album is unbelievable, and this whole article has made me appreciate it even more.
and on a side note, I don’t think I’ve ever heard guitars sound more perfect than they do in the opening bars of Everyone Choose Sides. And the way Charles sings ‘I’ve walked away from more than you imagine / and I sleep just fine’ absolutely floors me. Every freaking time.
definitely the best of the tracks released so far from Kiss Land, but I’m a huge sucker for The Zone so I guess I was always gonna like it.
I’m sure one day Miguel’s gonna jump on a track and it’s not going to be amazing, but it sure as hell doesn’t look like it’s happening any time soon
they already made that documentary. It’s called The Carter.
so when’s the live album coming out?
this has nothing to do with Marina Abramović, you can’t just telephone in a grand artistic statement and avoid any responsibility. Abramović puts herself through her art and inhabits it, for a much longer period than she expects any of her audience to do.
You can try to say that they are challenging expectation of music and live performance all you want, but at the end of the day, all it is is a dick move aimed at people who actually care about and respect what you do. It’s Death Grips laughing at their fans for liking them in the first place. Fuck them.
You are not music. I would have to say that this is though.
Not a bad list at all, but Tecumseh Valley really needs to be on there
He definitely doesn’t sound like he cares, but I don’t love it.
I guess you could say the lines between porn and art are becoming blurred
Fair point, but I think at least the women in Blurred Lines were allowed to have a bit of personality which the women in Tunnel Vision definitely didn’t have. Not that that makes it miles better or anything, but at least they seemed to have a little bit of control of the situation, whereas in Tunnel Vision they were little more than props.
And on Kanye, it’s hard to take anything he says seriously since he’s such an asshole. Sure what he says is distasteful, but we’re hardly put in a position to agree with him. His whole world view seems to leave him feeling depressed, alone and empty so he’s not exactly ‘glorifying’ misogyny, he’s kinda just showing how shit it leaves him feeling.
Maybe it’s a bit tenuous, but at least it’s not as in your face as Tunnel Vision or Blurred Lines
I’ve been feeling the same way about these clips. I mean, I love boobs as much as the next guy but this is really just blatantly using women as props for the guys.
At least in the Robin Thicke clip the women looked like they were actually having fun as opposed to just writhing around looking sexy… Not saying the Blurred Lines clip is much better, it’s still the same sort of glammed up sexism that Terry Richardson peddles as Arrrrrrttttt.. but at least it was kinda light-hearted..
maybe I’m getting old and boring, but using women in art solely because they are hot and/or topless doesn’t really do it for me anymore. Sigh.
I’ve gotta second ‘Headlights Look like Diamonds’, not my favourite or anything but it’s definitely a top tenner.
Same with Neighbourhood II.
Paper Bag definitely deserves the top spot. No question.
