Find Me On:
I loved “Out of the Races” at the time but felt they never were able to follow it up right.
“Get myself into it” sounds a lot like Stereo MC’s “Connected” and maybe another song too which I’ve never been able to recall. Anyone?
I wonder what actual feminists like Kathleen Hanna or Corin Tucker think of this. People who live feminism and music in their lives, not like Jezebel writers who create online gender fascism with their lives. My guess is people like Kathleen or Corin think that this is a complex, unfortunate human situation that can’t be intelligently commented on if you don’t know Thurston and Kim personally, but I could be wrong.
I remember after Rather Ripped came out in 2006, after hearing some of the lyrics (like “Turqoise Boy”), and then going to one of the shows, I had a strong instinct that there were marital problems. I think that led to Rather Ripped being one of the very best records they made. That’s my silver lining to this.
I’m on Team I hope they can find a way to keep working together, as impossible as it sounds now. And I hope the best for Coco.
yeah that was deep. nice avatar!
The original just struck me as contrived and obvious, yet I thought Bruce covering it actually gave it some meaning.
I read she lives in a really nice town, and when she sings “I’m not proud of my address,” it doesn’t seem believable. And the 2nd verse is just ridiculous posturing. It doesn’t sound like anything a teenage girl would write (maybe Taylor Swift can teach her.) It sounds like something that would be written for her by New Zealand’s equivalent of Good Charlotte, trying to imagine what a teenage girl and her friends world would be like…which, as it happens, is exactly how it was written.
Because Bruce, unlike Lorde, came from humble beginnings, he sounds much more believable singing this, despite being a gazillionaire.
“even though it was maybe the sixth- or seventh-best song on the record. And somehow, it’s still the one she’s performing on late-night shows.”
Totally agree. If Capitol fails to make “I Blame Myself” a hit, Sky should sue them to get out of her contract.
I thought she mostly sang well. And I’m sure the band’s instruments were not plugged in.
Don’t comment on music. Stick to rap.
I had no idea Haim was into shark-jumping.
Coldplay on Stereogum. Coming next, posting Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Hathaway songs?
I don’t know if this is Sky’s influence or what but go girl.
Major upgrade from Axl. Is she no longer dating the Scottish dude from “Summer Wine”?
right after everyone decides Paul Weaver is better.
I’m intrigued indeed. LDR’s talent is so massive and she’s made some timeless songs but also some terrible ones so having some direction from Auerbach could be perfect.
P.S. Shout to Jessica Lea Mayfield. Love her.
whoa. if true, Bonnaroo fans should hold up “Foxygen beat women” signs up or something.
You ain’t heard about the Mr. Mister reunion? All the kids are going insane for them!
And the award for Best Acceptance Speech ever goes to…Alex Turner.
Aww, now you updated the list and my dumb jokes don’t make any sense!
Capital Cities is playing twice? I’ve heard of different strokes but have some decency, Bonnaroo!
Good call to have Seasick Steve be the headliner. He’s the man! ;-)
I listened to “Depression” because you said it’s so punk. Literally the least punk thing I’ve ever heard.
