God it's so refreshing when someone speaks from a place of deep intelligence and thoughtful understanding instead of you know, just sayin' stuff.

Eh he's just bent out of shape that he's the worlds worst singer and wouldn't have been shit without Roger Daltrey.

November 26, 2019 on Pete Townshend On Keith Moon & John Entwistle: “Thank God They’re Gone”
Again this is another instance that seems to speak to KP's pretty outrageous privilege. On the last post about her a lot of people went with the "Well just cause she's rich does that mean we should discount her as an artist?" Which I think is just missing the point. It's more about the fact that you can't break through without buying access and that paradigm excludes voices that I would rather hear from.

yeah totally. I don't think it's disqualifying there aren't rules but it definitely isn't irrelevant either. the music industry (and lets face it lots of other creative industries) have steadily become a circle jerk where privilege and connections blow open all the doors and then everyone pats each other on the back for what geniuses they are to have "made it." the context matters and it also matters which voices aren't being amplified because someone couldn't afford to focus solely on their music or hire an expensive engineer or get their music in the hands of someone who could help them.

November 8, 2019 on Watch King Princess Make An Impressive US TV Debut On Colbert
From Wikipedia - "On her father's side, her great-great-grandparents were Isidor Straus, a U.S. Congressman and co-owner of Macy's". I think it sucks that everyone who blows up like this started from such deep privilege. Like heir to Macy's money raised in BK and trained in performing arts? That's a hell of a leg up and a lot of access that most people just don't get. Super common story these days. I dunno it's complicated but feels gross that something that's supposed to drive the culture is so heavily gate-kept by privilege and access. Especially weird that it's left completely out of the conversation. Like there's no mention here about the conditions that need to be in place for a 20 year old to end up in this position. Seems whack.

If you can't see the upswing of this kind of uber emo in the last couple of years I don't know what to tell you.

August 27, 2019 on Vagabon Contains Multitudes
"Today, she’s shared two of the songs from it, and they sound pretty amazing." Do they sound amazing? They sound like garage band demos. Dude Ranch on bass is a great idea I just wish it felt there was an attempt to try a little harder. Even as a bedroom recording one could do a lot more than this. I can't imagine wanting to listen to one of these songs all the way through let alone a whole album.

When you have even 1/10th of the swagger it takes to refer to yourself as "The Captain" then and only then will I let you tell me how to feel about this song.

June 4, 2019 on Jay Som – “Superbike”
Drives me nuts how SG constantly refer to the Voidz as SO WEIRD. Is this that weird? It's three and a half min long, has verses and choruses. Just cause of the auto-tune and production? There's a lot weirder music out there. I don't always love the Voidz but at least it's not boring. Calling it weird feels lazy.

This is like in Game of Thrones when everyone has to band together because of the greater encroaching evil. For now we shall fight along side the Biebs. For now.

Also at like 0:36 one of the legs on the drummers floor tom gives out and the whole left side of the drum sinks down and stays that way for the rest of the song. Didn't miss a beat.

March 21, 2019 on Watch PUP Make Their Late-Night Debut On Seth Meyers
"I don’t know how old these two kids are. I don’t know if they’re related. (I’m guessing they’re sisters.) I don’t know how far they’ve gone in the competition. " I bet you could find those things out! Also I'll tell you something *I* know: A german teenager doing an impression of Amy Winehouse singing Radiohead for a TV competition sucks so much that if you think this is good, you probably think Kid Rock's "Devil Without A Cause" is a classic record.

This is awesome. Wouldn't think in the year of our lord 2019 that a band like this could be killing it so hard, but here we are and I'm here for it.

I don't know enough about his background to say but he WREAKS of hyper privilege and his "outsider" persona seems HIGHLY performative.

March 14, 2019 on The Lil Peep Documentary Is As Messy And Alluring As Lil Peep
Also the Nirvana comparison is SO bad. 1) Kurt Cobain left an actual legacy of work and had the opportunity during his life to exhibit his prodigy. I think you conflate lil peeps "vibe" with his substance which is dead wrong. 2) Nirvana meant something to culture at the time they were active that lil peep can't even touch. Nirvana was the biggest band in the world. lil peep is a SUPER niche sound cloud rapper. It's not comparable. 3) Kurt Cobain had an ethos and a guiding ethic. He was anti cooperate/capitalist/patriarchal and he articulated those ideas in his music and his interviews. As far as I can tell lil peep at best is a great stand in for a hyper narcissistic, shallow culture that values money and status above almost all else. That's like the opposite of Cobain bruh. YOU ARE WRONG IN THIS COMPARISON AND IT SHALL NOT STAND.

You lost me at “Netflix’s speakeasy.” If that’s not the most SXSW combination of words I don’t know what is.
