Poptimism hasn't been the order of the day here for that long, funnily enough. The "Week in Pop" column and CRJ were both turning points. Positive move IMO

That stuttering, percussive "p" sound when she says "punctuation" is a highlight

"School Friends" was a great song. Hopefully they can build on that sort of writing.

That's true. Such venues and friends are a dramatic departure from her prior stateside position in the Lily Allen-adjacent area in the critical/popular perception. The Nash/Allen thing was never a great comparison, admittedly.

You could argue that Kate Nash sort of when in this reboot direction. Though I suppose it's hard to really classify her as a proper mainstream pop act at any point in her career. The new (s)punky direction she took on her last one, though, was certainly aimed at an entirely different audience than her first (and probably her second) album.

Ugh @ G-Eazy. But "Caroline" is just pure fun. Won't complain if Amine keeps putting stuff like that on the radio

February 11, 2017 on Dirty Projectors, Fleet Foxes Frontmen Discuss The “Both Bad And Boujee” State Of Indie Rock Today
Nooooo, I meant to compare the rhetoric that surrounds them and many other artists. I wanted to point to the idea that people who aren't "classically talented," can still sing effectively and movingly. By no means did I want to equate the two. It was more of a general historical point.
