Music That's Nearly As Good As You. Week 2
People with bad taste go to hell. Seriously.
Camera Obscura - Lloyd, I'm Ready To Heartbroken EP
Yeah let’s keep rolling the music clock back. This release puts us where, 1963? Not even the good drugged-out ’63, the lame poppy nearly musak weak-wristed ’63.
Tell you what let’s roll everything back. How about medicine, I don’t need penicillin. Indoor plumbing? HA, shitting in a bucket, that's indie. Oh look, Pitchfork just gave electricity a score of 4.0 saying, “perhaps the applications would merit the hype if it wasn’t so predictable when properly conducted and frenzied when unrestrained.”
Look its okay to take cues from your predecessors; just don’t take their melodies, form, production lyrics, vocals etc, etc
Danielson - Ships
Hey, Bright Eyes, close the fucking door. You’re letting all of the creepy art-folk-indie-acts out.
This is what happens when too many college kids buy records from Nebraska.
STOP SUPPORTING SADDLE CREEK
Angles and Airwaves – We Don’t Need To Whisper
What’s a worse fate for a once nearly respectable “punk” band,
A.) Staying together and putting out an album infested with pop cues and pseudo-political agenda aggrandizing, like say.... Greenday
B.) Breaking up and leaving the most ignored member to release an album with a death-grip on all four of the simplistic sounds that made his albums sell 10 years ago, like say... Tom from Blink 182.
Tom DeLonge speaking on Angles and Airwaves:
If Tom could play guitar nearly half as well as he can write his own hype, he’d be Jimi fucking Hendrix reborn.
Now who wants to do needle-drugs?!
Remember kids: s sober artist is a BORING artist.
