“The thing that I hate about the music industry is all of a sudden it’s like, ‘Grimes is a female musician’ and ‘Grimes has a girly voice.’ It’s like, yeah, but I’m a producer and I spend all day looking at fucking graphs and EQs and doing really technical work.”

What graphs? Is she using excel to make music?

‘“Trent Reznor started out making music on computers,” she says. “He was smart. He was into math. He was coming at it from an intellectual perspective and a scientific perspective. ”

She’s acting as if you have to be Alan Turing to use GarageBand.

My big takeaway from this article is Led Zeppelin was a much bigger influence on Nirvana than I previously thought.

March 7, 2015 on Q&A: Carly Rae Jepsen On Her All-Star Indie Collaborators And Really, Really, Really Anticipated New Album

I’m a pretty huge fan of his music, but I haven’t been as enthusiastic about Benji as most people, it seems. I feel like, while the lyrics have definitely gotten more interesting, and the music has gotten more energetic, I’m missing a lot of the things that I really love about his music. Such as the complex and exploratory guitar work – the musicianship is still there, but it seems to have been simplified for mass consumption. Also I really liked his melodies, even though they were all pretty uniformly melancholy. The new songs seem rather tuneless in comparison – although the subject matter and tone is a lot more varied.

The Edge can’t get up for five minutes because he think that he’ll forget how to play 3 chords in the most basic Bo Diddley rhythm.

They went full on Joy Division with the drums and bass parts. This is a really well written vocal part and lyric. It’s not reinventing music or anything, but it’s pretty good. U2 aren’t going to win any hipster points anyway, they’re too old for that.

It’s weird that mbv came out this year and then everyone forgot about it. After waiting for it for almost 25 yrs. And then ppl act like new phoenix or daft punk is a huge deal when it’s really not by comparison.
