Excited by the rad singles from her new album, I listened to the old, popular album from Grimes and hated it. It's pretty much just unintelligible, weird noise. Not my style at all. I only ever even kind of liked the singles from that album, and they were the only even close to memorable tracks on the whole disc. I hope the majority of the new album is more like Realiti and Flesh without Blood and less like this dumb "rap" song with some chinese girl screaming like a dipshit off it.
I'm actually getting chills a little bit listening to Kill V. Maim. It's an amazing song. Maybe the best of the year. This audio quality is dumpster fire tier tho, so I think I'm going to wait the two more days for the official release to listen to the rest.
So much backlash from "Grimes fans" that this album is too pop and they're actually giving me life. I can't wait to listen to the whole thing. The songs I've heard so far have been "listen all day on repeat without ever stopping" good. She has a track with Janelle Mo'bae on this record that some people are saying is 2 fresh. I wanna listen so bad but I can't fucking abide this bitrate! Pirates why can't you up yo ripping game, please!
I actually just accidentally caught the first 10 seconds of "World Princess Part II" while typing this and omgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomg
Charli is going super MEGA pop on her next album. The first time I heard this I was like what the actual fuck and kind of hated it, but I can't stop listening now. I heard a couple bootleg/live recordings of other new songs that will be on it and they sounded like poppier Grimes style tracks from back when she was just making weird noise. Again, they were immediately repulsive, but super catchy and they managed to grow on me. I'll be curious to see if I can hang with it when it comes out. It seems like she's moving a little too far from the style of pop that I like in favor of just making club/dance bangers, but I dunno I still find this oddly compelling. The Genesis Shadowrun-style electro sample in this definitely helps...
First new M83 since 2011... I went thru some stages of grief shit when I first clicked play on this shit. WTF is up with SpaceDog? WTF is up with this wackadoo, rag time piano? WTF am I even listening to??? And then it hits. And I'm like, alriiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!
I got the stupid Roppongi Vice theme song stuck in Davis' head for going on a full week now, but the cost was I got it stuck in MY head too. So pretty much every waking moment of my life since like last weekend I've been singing this dumb shit to myself on the downlow.
