Find Me On:
So, Hundred Waters, right?
I’m gonna mention Cymbals Eat Guitars like so many other commenters: I listened to LOSE at least three times before it was released, all on various sizes of speakers. I thought “This is pretty good.” Then today I listened to the whole thing cranked up on headphones and I was blown away. The passion in the vocals and the crunchiness of the guitars comes across much better on headphones. The Merchandise and Segall and Pornographers albums are all great, but I’m surprised by how much I love LOSE this week.
Harmacy as a whole really is great.
No one has mentioned it, so I’ll give a shout-out to “D is for Dangerous,” my favorite Monkeys tune. So short and sweet.
Guess this one hasn’t lost steam yet.
I mean, if we’re going to extol the virtues of Charli XCX and trash this… just, what’s the difference? Mainstream radio play?
(This is coming from a guy who unashamedly loves Katy and Miley, though, so.)
Am I the only ones who likes “Backwards” less than at least five or six other songs on that album? Pitchfork goes crazy over that song (one of the top 20 songs of the last five years, apparently), but I’d take “Apocalypse Dreams,” “Elephant,” “Keep on Lying” and my personal fav “Mind Mischief” over it any day.
So wait, we complain when there’s too obvious of a “drop” (Grimes’ “Go”) and then we complain when there’s not enough of one? I just wanna know so I can come prepared for next time.
Oh man, this could have been my song of the summer. Gonna be jamming this plenty now.
