The beat is “This Is It” off Old Donuts.
Beck, I hate to break it to you, but you are nowhere near the yellow brick road and you need to get back there if you ever want to fulfill your dream of acquiring a brain.
I know exactly where to put this:
[insert joke about "put my fist in her like a civil rights sign" scene in the movie, something about Kanye having bad lyrics on Yeezus, and throw in how he is a genius for good measure]
Guys you can all go home, I have completed this comment section already.
Apropos of nothing, can I just say that Beck looks like a goddamned scarecrow on the cover of Morning Phase? Because I just did. Because he does.
Considering how the last comment thread on this subject went down, why don’t we all just
We have now gone full circle to where I enjoy Morrissey posts because there’s always some guaranteed comedy.
Jimi Hendrix Hologram Tour 2014
I feel ya man, it reminds me of when they revealed Deep Throat’s identity and my first reaction was to throw my girlfriend’s computer out the window so she wouldn’t want to bang him.
Between him and Flying Lotus, I’m thinking being a video game addict is the mark of a good producer.
Good choice. I am really enjoying this album, although I do think it drags a bit at certain parts, moreso than other Actress albums. That being said, I think “Gaze” might be the single greatest track he has ever released, and I hope this isn’t his last, if for no other reason than I want to see him go further with the interesting ideas he touches on with “Rule.”
Yeah I mean I guess it’s good that he realizes how obviously bullshit it is that GKMC didn’t win, but the whole thing has a somewhat disingenuous, self congratulatory feel to it with him posting his own apology to fucking Instagram…
This is great. I’m only familiar with his work as Gorillaz, but this could easily be on a Gorillaz album along with the more more laid back, introspective tracks like “Tomorrow Comes Today” or “Cloud of Unknowing”
This whole exchange is some comedic levels of self seriousness from both sides.
If Shia Labeouf forms a band singing about pizza using Velvet Underground songs, I’m done….
I guess the second worst comment is what happens when…..
Keeping it real goes wrong
Don’t get me wrong, I’m down for some grime and trashiness at my concert venues, that isn’t really my concern. My main complaint is just how colossally shitty the sound system is. Other people I know who have been there say the same thing, the sound quality is just piss poor to the point that it makes going to a concert less enjoyable.
I saw The Field there this past October and I couldn’t even recognize some of the songs at first, songs I have heard hundred of times, because of how awful the sound was. And it’s not The Field, because I saw him at a different, equally tiny venue a few years ago and he killed it. They also wouldn’t let him do an encore, as he left the stage after the main set and then came back a few minutes later and started getting ready to play another song and they turned on the lights and started playing music over the loudspeakers to get him off the stage. He looked kinda stumped, then just walked off. Fuck that.
I’m all for DIY venues and understand the value of these smaller places in the context of the whole local music scenes and all. I wouldn’t just come on here and shit on a venue just because it isn’t as nice as Carnegie Hall, or even Bowery Ballroom or something. My problem is acting like this is the fucking CBGB’s shutting down, when everyone I know who has been to 285 Kent has had a negative experience.
Has anyone here actually BEEN to 285 Kent? The place is garbage. Really terrible sound system, terrible lights, they oversell concerts so it gets way too packed, just all around probably my least favorite venue in New York. I’m sure there is a history to the place and all, but I’ve only had shitty experiences.
Yeah, I really hate the stupid collaborations they usually do. Was there any reason why we needed to see Stevie Wonder do “Superstition” with the Jonas Brothers?
“I really like that Stevie Wonder song ‘Superstition’ but I have always felt that there wasn’t enough of a Disney boy band vibe to it.” – Nobody ever.
I am a little shocked Disclosure isn’t number one. I thought they had both the best album of any new act this year and the most potential as far as longevity goes (Run The Jewels notwithstanding because they aren’t exactly a new act)
I’m with you. I don’t really get why they are so hyped and popular and shoved down my throat on blogs like this one when there isn’t anything really fresh or groundbreaking about them. It sounds like pretty standard indie synthpop to me, not really worth any more hype and acclaim than Purity Ring, whose album I enjoyed but didn’t completely lose my shit over like people seem to be doing with Chvrches. Also “The Bones of What You Believe” has always sounded to me like some pseudo-deep phrase a 14 year old would come up with in an attempt to be profound.
Can we get some love for Gang Starr? On the same level as OutKast in my opinion.
I don’t see a problem with it. If you bought a ticket and don’t dress up, they should definitely not turn you away. But I also think that if you choose to buy a ticket to an event where they expect you to dress up, and then you choose to not dress up, you should feel awkward about not dressing up. It’s not even that difficult of a request. The option, which a lot of people seem to be ignoring, is either formal wear or a costume. So if you don’t have formal wear, just put on some bunny ears or some shit, pick a costume that isn’t too extravagant. Who cares. By buying the ticket in which they explicitly state that you should come in a costume, you are signing up to go to an event where you are expected to dress up or come in costume.
Yes. You make a lot of the points I tried to make in my comment, but yours is articulated better. Saying unlicensed lyric sites take money away from the artists is one thing, naming Rap Genius as the number one offender is a bunch of bullshit that implies Lowery is either unaware of or refusing to acknowledge the differences in the issues here.
