I’m sure some people will say what about the critical adoration for LDR, Fiona Apple, etc. I’d say, the cultural derision is much worse for white men than it is for white women, even though both are biased against.

Should never have apologized, she’s very close. Look at stereogum and who they feel comfortable criticizing and who they don’t. If it’s a pop star the snarky comments are always saved for Ed Sheeran or Taylor Swift or whoever else as long as they are white. If they are less famous and white they will just be completely ignored. Look what happened to some of the great indie rock albums of the past two years Deceiver, Freedom, whatever else. If those albums were made by POC there would have been incessant press for them and talk among critics nonstop, but because the people involved are white, critics and mainstream culture as a whole couldn’t care less.

I appreciate LDR pointing out the double standards that exist for white people and POC-and pretend POCs like Grande. There’s an obvious bias in not just what critics choose to single out for criticism but in the works critics like to signal out as genius. It’s pretty obvious at this point there is one set of standards for white people who make art and another softer standard for anyone of a certain identity, ie non white, non straight.

More artists need to start doing stuff like this. The Instagram feeds are an incredibly poor place to watch anyone perform, and the bathroom or wherever they are during the performance, always sounds like shit. Live broadcasts from venues on YouTube should be the standard.

Rap has got to be scared of this, the robot can pump out trash faster than all the Lils and Babys combined. No way you could tell a difference between the same 808s and flows either.

I called it nerdy because the melody has no rhythm or is stilted. I guess you can call it something else, the melody is very forced over the top of the song. It just reminds me of a nerdy person rapping or trying to sing a song and being behind the beat and rhythm.

Black album has a lot of good songs, the vocal melody in Hero is extreme nerd cringe, and its definitely a horrible song, no matter how many times you actually* me.

Hero has to be one of the worst songs ever, but I’m still listening to the Black Album, the duality of Weezer.

Love RBCF, feel like their live show is a little lacking for whatever reason though? Anyone else seen them live?

Dirty Projectors were really impressive to see on tour with Deerhunter, such a unique sound.

Kind of surprised that this Steinfeld article didn’t mention Let Me Go, seems like a sort of swan song for big tent EDM. It’s also her best song, and features a pretty good verse from Florida Georgia Line. That billboard top ten is so bleak, holy crap.

The Neon Skyline is still probably my favorite album of the year, just incredible from front to back. Songs like Fire Truck and Changer are next level songwriting.

The Slow Rush is a great album to get high to, no question. It really works as an album, which I guess all great getting high albums do.

Grimes is a queen and a musical genius, and anyone talking shit is a petty little bitch.

Excited for this album, incredible to me that Sophie came right out of the gate being such a next level songwriter. Clean is basically perfect, just incredible from a new artist.
