La Roux- Let Me Down Gently
At least “Yeezus” is short and sweet, and doesn’t involve superfluous ellipses.
I never could get into La Roux, but these two new tracks have stuck. I got a serious Miami Vice vibe off “Let Me Down Gently.” “Uptight Downtown” is a little more Vice City, but I’ll take that too. If this keeps up, then I’m looking forward to enjoying the air conditioning on a blazing hot day with this album shimmering out of the speakers. Maybe I’ll be wearing a pastel suit.
I’ve heard enough bad freestyles over “Seven Nation Army” that this headline kind of made me think “meh” at first.
And then it hit me that White is not what he once was, and Jay and Ye are not third-rate blog rappers.
Dammit. These could have been great. Or at least interesting.
It’s a “Where’s the Beef? Not Here” article.
Everyone is all up in arms about the anti-Semitic overtones here (which are inexcusable), but it seems like we’re all ignoring the other heinous thing happening.
Cultural appropriation of witches.
Witches are another sub-sect of society that have been historically downtrodden and persecuted. They’ve been burned at the stake, drowned, ran out of towns with pitchforks, and reduced to their own handful of cultural stereotypes.
J.K. Rowling made witches “cool” over a decade ago, and now Macklemore has decided to add another bit of appropriated paraphernalia to his already bursting arsenal of cultural appropriation.
A witch nose. For Christ’s sake, is there any group he won’t steal from? Shame, dude, shame.
Yeah, but [insert clever Hov/elevator themed retort that I really want to make but just can't quite think of right now].
I’m gonna be honest, I’d rather look at the Spotify ads (which are mostly empty black space anyway) than most other advertisments I’ve seen here.
“Fuck it, throw in a hurdy gurdy” is a phrase I wish more bands would use.
