Find Me On:
If you are a musician who plays an instrument and you work hard to rehearse, learn how to play that instrument, and learn how to play your music live, it is definitely disheartening to see someone else only have to create music one time (via a recording), music that they can create in thousands of little parts, often by the pushing of a button or the drag and drop of a sample, and “perform” that same recording live. It’s less work for the latter, but you get the same fanfare and buckaroos these days. That would piss anyone off.
Yessssssssss. I knew this would rule, and alas, it does.
Good joke! Fresh!
Seriously. What in the actual fuck?
I couldn’t be more excited to see this news this morning. Can’t wait.
Frickin’ finally. Me = excited.
As always, the faux outrage machine is way off base calling the video racist. I do not even know what they are looking for anymore or how to prevent their ire.
More importantly though, this video is just a mess. Who wants to watch a girl mug in front of the camera for 3 minutes and play with her hair while she hangs out with pretend gangsters over a girly pop song? Who comes up with and approves this crap? I’m more offended by the content than any fabricated racism.
It’s been about 6 months now. How much longer will it take?
Agreed. Congratulations if fantastic, this album is kind of just a mess.
“it’s a tense and precise midtempo song, one that’s been sculpted with laserlike focus.”
lol. Is this blog just a press release machine now? Is there any critique done on new singles anymore? This is obviously a snoozer of the highest order and is a neutered version of everything that made the Black Keys great. Come on stereogum.
