Bingo. I think you hit the nail on the head. Talented producer who has a real skill for making great pop songs, really lackluster and boring performing artist in his own right. Heavy-handed and insufferable indeed. In addition to the Solange single, the Sky Ferreira single still sounds as fresh as the first time I heard it.

Of course. It definitely isn't for me. If people dig it, more power to them.

Also, I might add, though Kozelek won't like this, this song has a very The War on Drugs feel to it.

Holy shit. This is like, insanely good. Absolutely timeless sound. I had no idea that I was going to be so excited for this album, but yeah, I am.

I couldn't agree with you more. I thought it was a downright comical performance, and um, not powerful. Just an absolute dud of a song, and somehow as boring and a song as it is, not performed that well either. This is an extremely, extremely low bar we are setting if we consider this a powerful performance. It's just.....lame. Powerfully lame in fact. I get the dude is trying to send a positive message here, but yeah, this played like a bad high school talent show performance.

Drake is a natural on SNL. I legitimately like him better as a comedic performer than as a musician. Mother of god though, what was that car rental sketch? I'm not sure there has been a cast member less funny than Jay Pharaoh. Oh cool! Another character with a weird voice and strange accent. My grandmother has better comedic timing.

May 11, 2016 on Yacht Apologize For Sex Tape Hoax And Non-Apology
Agreed, that video itself isn't an issue to me, but if they still release the video, then all this ultimately is is a gross yet successful PR ploy and marketing attempt to get attention for their new video, despite the apology. The only real way to be sincere about the apology is to abandon the project altogether, because it failed.

Good. This should have happened sooner, but good. Also, they kind of need to not release the video considering all of this was to drum up attention for said video, otherwise all the apologizing is just an empty gesture.

The funny part about every new cringeworthy Banks story is how it is prefaced by her talent. Where is that talent again? As far as I've ever been able to tell, she's just another batshit insane and hateful person on twitter who happened to put out a mildly interesting single 5 years ago. And she's not even a very good troll on twitter.

lol. Seriously. What exactly are they playing with? That people will genuinely feel bad for you and support you if something awful happens to you, and that other people will be interested in seeing people have sex on the internet? GREAT PROJECT. GENIUS.

From their statement: "Even within the fictional narrative we created, there was no violence or exploitation. " lol. In your VERY OWN initial post: "We hope you understand that this is not a delicious scandal. This is an exploitation." Just so much stupid here. I can't even process it all. And I hate, HATE, political correctness and SJW internet stuff, but man, this is so tone deaf on so many levels.

Really, really gross and shitty as many others have and will continue to say. The most baffling part is how on earth they could have conceived this idea and thought it could have gone even remotely well. Shocking lack of foresight and self-awareness. This should be in a master class on how to completely betray the trust of your entire fanbase and spoil any public goodwill in 24 hours.

Zzzzz. I know it's blasphemy to speak ill of the Chance hype train on the bloggernet, but this is another new Chance release that I'm just not feeling. This whole church band thing just isn't for me. And that poor Jamila Woods does not sound good at all on this. I guess I'll go listen to Acid Rap again. Angels is dope though.

Weird. I have a completely different feeling. What started with a somewhat lukewarm liking of BOH with Everything All the Time, with every repeated listen that album slowly climbed into an all-time favorite of mine. I'll revisit a few times a year randomly, and each time I'm just reminded and blown away by how much I love it. Every song and every moment of it. It's almost a perfect album to me. In fact I was just listening to it last week.

I absolutely like Infinite Arms. Some great tunes on that bad boy, and I love the density of it. It's not Everything All the Time (nothing is), but it's good. As to this article's news: YAY. Sounds awesome.

September 21, 2015 on Joanna Newsom – “Leaving The City”
A handful of listens in, and I'm enjoying the album, but it is a little too much "Smoke Ring for My Halo" for me when I was hoping for more "Wakin on a Pretty Daze." That's not to say in terms of tempo or guitar-jamminess, but just in how many songs on this album seem like the unfinished kind of guitar noodling songs from early Kurt Vile stuff. I like that stuff, but I've heard it before, and was hoping for more growth, similar to the huge step forward that was present on the last album (which is an all time favorite of mine. Just so good). Pretty Pimpin' is a sign of that, and is one of my favorite songs of his to date, but I think it is the clear high point of this album. That's not to say I don't like the new album. I do. I love everything KV produces, but it is a bit disappointing. It's a bit uneven and has a lot of retread, and given how long it has been between records, I was hoping for a bit more.
