This is so absurd. Was what he said in bad taste? 100%. If we’re not careful someone might mistake him for the singer of a punk band. The inability for folks to differentiate the scale of these infractions is getting so tiresome.
Stereogum has really lost the thread lately man. This is bad.
NYCHC is just the worst sub culture. White, macho, weirdly conservative. The music is totally creatively hollow and the people who make it their identity are borderline fascist about it.
But why did the simpsons make an episode about Morrissey?? Do people watch the Simpsons? Do the people who do know who he is?? Why does any of this exist?????
Being muscly is a funny gimmick.
Lol I mean did he think anyone was going to read his book? I wish there was a way for me to know LESS about Moby. Figure that out and you're on to something.
"Every survivor should be heard but in THIS instance it's not true!" has become the go to for this kind of dude when they are accused. It's insulting.
Plus her voice can't carry the pop aspirations. Works well when she's doing the more whispery bedroom thing but for a full on pop song it just doesn't have the power needed to pull it off. In the recorded version you can hear how incredibly tuned it is which helps I guess for the pitch but doesn't help for the energy. In the live version you can hear how strained and flat it is. It just can't carry the weight.
I just don't think it rises to the level it aspires too. It wants to be this big shimmery synth pop song and it just never gets off the ground IMO. The chorus especially just is so forgettable and missing any kind of energy or urgency. This is a pretty well worn genre of song so feels like it would need to hit higher highs to stand out in the field. Just feels generic.
Her voice in the chorus of that new single is rough. I guess she's built up enough momentum to get as big as she seems to be for this album cycle but that song is really not strong.
Y'all are out here tweeting all the winners. I would assume for people who want to watch the ceremony they'd rather have the choice to be surprised?
The Grammy's have been so terrible for so long that I am surprised I care about anything related to them. That said, it's truly unreal that Blinding Lights wasn't nominated.
But he's not saying there are no bands that exist. "I mean, there still are plenty of bands, and maybe they’re not in the limelight quite as much, or in the pop limelight, but I wish there could be more of those around."
Compare to the same list from 2002 the year the first Maroon 5 record came out. https://www.billboard.com/charts/year-end/2002/top-billboard-200-albums
BTS and BlackPink aren't bands. Missed 5 Seconds of Summer somehow but the point still stands.
There's literally not one contemporary band on the top 200 records from 2020. Where's the lie? https://www.billboard.com/charts/year-end/2020/top-billboard-200-albums
He's absolutely right though. Bands aren't part of the culture they way they were 20 years ago. Not even close.
