*notwithstanding the self-proclaimed genius part

This is such a coincidence, I was searching up the old Daft Punk RAM collaborators videos last night and ended up watching the Chilly Gonzales segment.

It’s always fascinating to hear this man talk about music. The lack of pretension is refreshing. He’s definitely spot on about the Drake analysis.

I’ve been recently bitching about not being able to go to Coachella because I live in Vancouver.
And then bam, the Pemberton lineup turns out to be bomb.

Tom, the lego people bled blue because they were the clones. The lego girl bled regular red blood because she was human.

It was a beautiful human//clone love story, come on get wit the program.

Might be true, but most drive-by criticisms of pop music has definitely convened to the fact that the “harmonic content” is derivative, uninspired, bland, unoriginal, etc.

Which I often disagree.

He can very easily be that type of singer. From the live, stripped-down versions of his songs on the Nirvana EP and his earnest lyrics, I’m not surprised if that’s what he identifies himself with artistically.

In fact I think a ton of singers working with eclectic producers these days is very much a major company label marketing scheme. Not to take away from his artistic integrity and choices, but I never really saw his collaborations much of an identifier of his own vision…maybe because his voice is so emotive and pop-accessible that he’s bound to be grouped with “that” kind of music.

You need to learn what the word bazooka means.

Zomby is almost 34 years old.

Let’s let that sink in for a bit.

The 2 best rap posse songs I’ve heard this year, Sanctified and Move That Dope feel contrived and lack momentum/staying power. Granted, everything on paper sounds amazing (that Pharrell verse, that gospel sample) but there’s no energy to either to them.

I don’t know. I think it’s time we hung up posse tracks.

They need to mix ASAP Rocky’s vocals better. Like, come on now.
