OK, that makes a lot more sense. Now the puzzle pieces are still fitting together. Thanks!
Can someone explain the video to me? I don’t hate it (and I love the song that it’s promoting), but I really just don’t understand too much of the imagery. I guess the mirror might have something to do with how he truly sees himself, but what’s the dumpster diving part for? And the executives eating lobster? Is it all a comment on one thing or just a bunch of things?
I hate to make this a game of 21 Questions, but I’m just baffled by the video. The song itself is stellar, though.
Well you said it, that Word Crimes song is fantastic. Plus, for people that grew up on Weird Al (I’m in that group of people), it’s fun to see him back. Plus, he honestly does the parodying a whole lot better than a lot of those YouTube. Plus, Funny’s funny. And Al still sounds great for a comedic musician (Which, if you’ve heard others, you’ll quickly understand just how talented Al is).
Also, the Illuminati twist and full circle in “Foil” was one of the most brilliant pieces of comedy I’ve seen all year.
Milwaukee’s music scene has been bubbling with underrated greatness for years now. Hopefully Field Report will get on the map…and this song is good enough to do that.
The only Radiohead record that truly sounds remotely dated is Pablo Honey.
“Tonight” is pretty good, but I still think Lykke Li sounds a lot better on her newer, bigger production. She certainly sounds more matured, and I think that brings out the emotion a little bit. But, to each their own.
JR’s production always brought a sense of immediacy and energy to Owens’ vocals. Lysandre (and this new song) just prove how unexciting Owens sounds without him.
I’m with her on this one. She’s grown so much since that first album. I Never Learn (The year’s most underrated album, IMO) is such a full, enormous statement; When I first heard Youth Novels, I never thought she’d be able to approach that level emotion.
Spook is such an incredible song, and their song “Hum” that NPR debuted a couple weeks back is one of my favorite tracks this year. I’m so excited to hear the whole record.
Raekwon is the best…his ignoring of Nardwuar’s questions is golden.
