You can always tell when the 'Gum staff knowingly is aware they're putting up a traffic-baiting listicle filled with obvious answers when nobody wants their name under the headline lol
“ For a while there, it seemed like the fall of 2021 was going to be pretty quiet before things really got back into gear in 2022.” What timeline is this? I’ve felt like there has been way too much new music in new albums coming out atop of new songs being released from albums coming out in 2022. This has been one of the most absolute overwhelming fall music schedules ever to the point I’ll be catching up until end of yearZ
I know this probably sounds awful to say, but I think people have turned on her for two specific reasons: 1) The appropriation of Black culture when she wore the white woman cornrows. People are going to hold that one against as long as that photo exists on the Internet, which is forever. 2) She lost weight and people don't trust people who get all hot and know it afterward. The world preferred the old Adele as she was because they saw her as a non-conformist of body image standards and maybe more relatable, but now that she's just another wealthy celebrity who had the means to be able to shed the weight, nobody is having it when she goes out there flaunting the new figure and feeling herself.
Can we add dating apps to this list as well? I know for many of us (myself included,) they're a necessary evil to meet people, but are we really meeting people? And also, if you aren't successful or have bad experiences, it starts to make you feel like garbage. This past week, I'd been talking to a match from Hinge, and at first their attention in the form of texts and phone calls felt refreshing, but then I started to feel "trapped" inside my screen talking to the person to the point where if I didn't send a text during the day, she would send me a message saying, "I didn't hear from you today, and I thought I would." We'd planned to meet, but I decided not because it all felt like too much and I was starting to get stressed out thinking about what might happen down the line if we began dating, wondering if the expectation to always be texting and talking would grow.
You'll probably want to steer clear of Googling "Chelsea Wolfe, Zohra, Azar Swan" while you're at it then.
The backlash against mid 2010s indie rockers has really been on this past week, hasn't it.
I watched the performance and didn't even catch that she was sitting there nude with a guitar. Not sure if that says more about my brain or the performance...
Gonna roll into my family's Christmas gather wearing a Cock Sparrer hoodie, a cumgirl18 shirt and Mannequin Pussy knit cap.
Well, it looks like a lot of people are going to be indirectly intimately fantasizing about being with Clive Davis in the near future...
His vocals sound like Luke Bryan lol
Beyond an older generation of listeners, I don't think a younger generation would be very interested in a reunion anyway. Maybe during the Coachella reunion culture days of the late 2000s when 20somethings were clamoring to see the Smiths and Talking Heads reunite, there would have been a market for it, but nowadays, the "older" bands that younger indie listeners are aware of and interested in are more along the lines of My Chemical Romance at best. I don't even think there's interest in a White Stripes reunion at this stage.
Oh yeah, either of those two for sure. I was thinking Turnstile might get the edge, though, to go along with the narrative that it was a year where live music had to go through some shit to return, and bands like Turnstile were a visible part of that.
Just wondering what everyone thinks will be the year's top album on a site like this? At midyear. it was Fiddlehead leading the pack, which honestly is a great album but not sure if it suggested a great year in music. I really haven't felt that anything beyond Turnstile could challenge that, and don't know of anything else coming down the pipeline beyond maybe a surprise by someone like Kendrick that could easily challenge that.
Just an observational comment with no hate attached to it, but it really feels like indie rock went from "band with two to three conventionally attractive white hipster guys sporting mustaches and a conventionally attractive white woman vocalist" formula to the "band with two to three conventionally attractive white woman and one white hipster guy sporting a mustache" in the past year. I guess that's some progress...
I remember the song itself spawned many viral YouTube videos of people acting it out. It was like a TikTok meme way before it became a TikTok meme. My friend's sister's lacrosse team had one of the originals.
What's crazy is to think how kids these days don't even know what using a phone number to call someone is.
We'll sooner be dead before this album comes out, I fear.
Holter got the best kisser of the bunch. Not like that other dude in the video who looks like he is literally eating the woman's face and she's not into it.
Whenever I see this band's name, the eye-brain trick goes straight to "WHite Lung"
She isn't very nice to people, comes off as above others, and those who've been on the road with her felt very unwelcome playing shows with her.
