Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

Along with a glimpse of Daft Punk’s new suits and song titles, this week we finally got to hear “Get Lucky.” Expectations for the full track couldn’t have been higher and some of you were disappointed by it. Nevertheless it was a big week for the duo, and for their fellow countrymen Phoenix, whose performance with R. Kelly was a Coachella highlight. Their Bankrupt! is out next week, but you can read our Premature Evaluation now. Also this week we got Jai Paul’s debut LP, but not for long. We spoke with Colin Steson, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and the Juan MacLean. And we marveled at this Radiohead tattoo. Record Store Day is tomorrow — here are some suggestions at what to pick up. But save at least $1 for Allston Pudding’s 130-track Marathon Relief Mix; 100% of the proceeds benefit victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy.

I’m very much hoping that this sparks Thom Yorke to get a nipple tattoo on his eye/eyeball region so that this can become another meta meta internet joke. Cuz, like, it’s 2013 and why not?

I have no clue how the rest of the commenters will react, but I’m THRILLED this was chosen as AOTW.

I missed out on those early singles because I thought the XCX in her name was stupid. Sue me. But then I heard “You’re the One” and didn’t give a flying fuck. I needed more pop perfection!

My first introduction was from fellow IAMSOUND label mates SALEM’s remix of “Stay With Me” – featured on Stereogum’s glorious Remixtape series (bring it back!). Between that and her armada of singles, I found more than enough to love. But the hits kept coming.

Many commenters lashed out at “You (Ha Ha Ha)” because Gold Panda’s original is so fantastic. Granted, but was I the only one waiting for somebody to actually DO something with that fantastic beat? She did. She nailed it. That song tampers with the original just enough to make it work. It’s a blast getting to party out to that song a full… 4 years after its original release? Talk about breathing new life into something already brimming with it.

Now… “What I Like” is what I like A LOT. I was already honing in on that song listening to “True Romance” — spinning it endlessly as I’ve done with many of her other singles. Then yesterday we’re BLESSED with an extended cut with a joyful Danny Brown verse. The song kept spinning. Hard to say whether the Danny Brown version should’ve made it on the album… could of done numbers to counter balance that Brooke Candy whoever the hell on “Cloud Aura”. But I suppose it’s good to have an original and improved versions. Still, such a great song.

I want to see this girl go places. Even though I don’t think it’s entirely up to people like me, but I’d much rather have Charli be the face of pop music than any of the other girls out there right now.

THIS WEEK’S 5 LOWEST RATED COMMENTS

#5 seanjean | Apr 17th Score:-7

Wow. Those are a lot of words for a pretty vanilla pop rock band who spit out homogenous tunes.

Bryce Bullins | Apr 14th Score:-8

I really don’t think any musician’s album needs a trailer for itself. It’s gaudy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m decently excited for this to drop too, but the grandiose “teasers” and “trailers” feel so affected.

Any Radiohead album post-OK Computer is pretty shoddy/worst in my opinion man. The tattoo is muchos classier me thinks. And Yorke was always a “nipple” anyway, so how deliciously apt.
