The fight songs for the resistance line is definitely from Chris. And she mentioned pinning the review, which Chris did on Twitter.

And I am so proud of Cameron, but she needs to bring some of that personality to her performances when she isn’t lip syncing! She might make it to the finale but I give her a 0% chance of winning. Hope to see more of her though

I think my ranking would go: Cracker, Aquaria, Asia, Eureka, but I don’t have strong feelings other than not wanting Eureka to win lol And I hope this isn’t the last we’ve seen from the house of X Change. Monét is so clever and likeable and if she could just step up her runway game she could be a fierce all-star contender.

I’m kind of disappointed that LAVREN went off on Chris bc that review was great and so obviously came from a place of sympathy and respect for Chvrches capabilities. I’m sure the resistance line stung a little, but what can you say? The “Graves”-type songs are like sub-“Chained to the Rythm” woke pop and that’s not Chris’s fault Tbh I enjoyed the first half of Love Is Dead for what it is but the second half is just dire

I haven’t been impressed by what I’ve heard but it’s hard for me to ignore Spoon / Phoenix comparisons, two bands that are always in my spring-summer rotation.

“Losss” would have been epic. “Courtship” does show off the flute arrangement nicely, at least.

Snapes really gave it a great write-up. She got at a lot of what makes it feel underwhelming to me while I also being thoughtful about where this fits into Courtney's evolution as a songwriter.

The performance looks and sounds great, but I think she could have picked a more engaging song than "Courtship" to represent Utopia.

Probably the best balance so far between extreme and seemingly unsustainable buzz for the debut + consistent upward trajectory since. Though they haven't exactly been prolific.

I can respect that take, Actor is the album that got me into St. Vincent. But comparing her career arc to other top-tier indie acts its more relevant to consider which albums were her most acclaimed and commercially successful. And there she does fit more with the National/WOD/Beach House trajectory of having a debut that was well-received but not like AOTY/"savior of rock" type-buzz, thus setting her up for steady upward trajectory (at least in terms of her position in the greater indieverse, obviously tastes differ on what is truly her best album).

I will probably mine it for workout playlist fodder, that's where most of my guilty pleasure music ends up. Though in this case I think there may be more guilt than pleasure.

You're on to something with this. I think the fully-formed (or at least hyped/acclaimed) debut is in some ways a hallmark of the "buzz band" - and one of the reasons the passage through the second and third albums is so fraught. Beach House, the National, and War on Drugs all had some early releases that flew a little more under the radar and had some time to seep in without the weight of expectations. And since y'all always forget her in these conversations I guess I'll point out that Strange Mercy was St. Vincent's third album.

Not that I object to the decision not to run the interview. If it wasn't a good interview then it wasn't a good interview. But personally I am glad you at least pushed him on that and I don't think that's overstepping your bounds.

I think there's a huge difference between asking someone to account for their actions or words and "policing" them.

I was mildly disappointed with the new Courtney Barnett album. Good thing Chvrches showed up to remind me what a true disappointment sounds like.

No way is the third xx album better than their debut.
