Didn't think I'd ever encounter the words "heterotopia" and "Phish" in the same sentence, but here we are!

IDGAF what anyone says on this, I unashamedly love this album. Such a weird relic, and full of interesting tunes.

Getting both new Earth and Sunn 0))) in the same year is pretty fantastic

Ok, but what if then appreciating their art despite their problematic views/behaviours etc. just further gives them the platform to espouse those views, often in a way that allows them to reach a wide audience? Like say you support some far-right group and get to play something like "The Tonight Show" and needlessly vocalize that, is that excusable because they make/made good art? Me thinks not.

I mean on some levels you aren't wrong, but I do think you gloss over the rather important fact that anti-islamic sentiment is often inseparable from racist discourse, and that for a lot of the far-right, little distinction is ever made between being Arabic and being muslim.

I don't know if it's the last thing we need! I find this approach refreshing for sure. Very excited for this album, I think this band has the potential to be really exceptional!

Surely Bruno Mars is labouring over something as we type.

May 13, 2019 on “Old Town Road” Is #1 For The 6th Week, “ME!” Drops To #3
That Denzel track fell pretty flat for me, but I’m really living the new KLO track and am constantly amazed at how great Skepta continues to be. I’ve decided to avoid the new FlyLo tracks so as to soak em all in on the first listen if the album, but they certainly sound like they’re going to sound great!

I agree absolutely, but still think Yellow House is the GOAT GB album and still super underrated. What a weird, insular work that thing is. All here for all things Rossen related. That dude is an absolutely brilliant musician, and I would argue one of the most underrated/discussed guitarists - maybe - ever.

Not really sure what you were going for with this, but it came off sort of misogynistic/borderline homophobic, and in any case I think you clearly failed.

May 7, 2019 on Idles – “Mercedes Marxist”
I don't agree entirely. I found "This Old Dog" and a lot of what was on "Salad Days" to be infinitely more interesting than this run of tracks. This new lounge/soft rock/adult contemporary direction he's going I think is brutally bland. The video might be unsettling (I do like it!) but the song itself is very settling, which I find to be to bad.

If Feist is our queen, then this cover constitutes an act of high treason.

I used 'narrative' pretty loosely, but see steevee's comment as it's more/less what I was getting at.

I’ve said it before but I still think Tyler’s transformation in te last few years is one of the most enjoyable and heartwarming narratives in the pop music sphere recently. Flower Boy has only gotten better with time and I’m super excited for this. Both the album covers are brilliant!

I think his second best album to date, after Singing Saw. I've been listening since Friday nonstop and can't get enough. Ps. What if I told y'all there was a second Big Thief album coming out this October?

Climate change is fantastic for capitalism/capitalists, as it creates an entirely new realm of possibilities for products marketable to the guilty, ‘conscious’ consumer who wishes to make a change with their dollar. I think Grimes is actually pretty close to perhaps the prime example of this.

I mean I think there's more to the merch thing than the prices alone... Selling kit with religious slogans on it for that kinda coin is hilarious/outrageous/sacrilegious.

Sounds very similar to Nietzsche's idea that all liberal or revolutionary movements necessarily become conservative upon their institutionalization.
