two weeks pass...

I didn't listen but just saw Tory Lanez has a song out with a Chris Brown feature

rob, Thursday, 25 February 2021 13:53 (two months ago) link

Also didn't listen, but just saw Post Malone has a song out titled "Only Wanna Be With You (Pokémon 25 Version)."

I did listen to that, and I don't really know why that exists.

MarkoP, Friday, 26 February 2021 21:44 (two months ago) link

the reason it exists are pokemon is doing a very strange 25th anniversary celebration that includes getting post malone to cover hootie & the blowfish. there's going to be a katy perry song about pikachu at some point too

ufo, Friday, 26 February 2021 22:01 (two months ago) link

Katy Perry singing about Pikachu for a Pokemon thing makes sense.
I just don't quite understand the decision for Post Malone to cover Hootie and the Blowfish for this.
Like if he was covering M2M's Don't Say You Love Me, that would make a lot more sense.

MarkoP, Friday, 26 February 2021 22:51 (two months ago) link

they put in a sample of a track from pokemon gold & silver in the cover, but yeah i'm totally baffled by the whole thing

ufo, Friday, 26 February 2021 22:52 (two months ago) link

decide for yourself. i can't handle this guys billygoat vibrato and stopped after like thirty seconds.

Is there a contractual obligation with the Elvis estate to remix his catalog every 10 years or so?

I've been waiting patiently
I built this tower quietly

Running dry of serotonin

Or maybe it's the truth in me

lyrics were a mistake

Feeling very vindicated rn.

pomenitul, Monday, 15 March 2021 22:28 (one month ago) link

They are both terrible, but I almost feel like the Elvis/Big Boi trainwreck is the worst of the two because we could once expect decent things from Big Boi. I have no similar delusions of Imagine Dragons.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 15 March 2021 22:34 (one month ago) link

I hear Elvis made some good records too

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Monday, 15 March 2021 22:35 (one month ago) link

Well, yeah. But Big Boi actively participated in making that song, Elvis.. uh, less so.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Tuesday, 16 March 2021 00:46 (one month ago) link

that imagine dragons song is unlistenable even by their standards to the point i cant see it being any sort of hit

ufo, Tuesday, 16 March 2021 01:04 (one month ago) link

Ohmygod, that song sounds like a practicing Mormon with writer's block heard Nine Inch Nails for the first time in his late '30s and was all "I've found my new direction!"

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 30 March 2021 09:14 (one month ago) link

I’m hearing an unimaginative remix of an absolute classic. def a missed opportunity, but it’s serviceable, nothing “worst” about it imo

Blick, Bils & Blinky • Let's Skip The Shaker Intros (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 30 March 2021 10:59 (one month ago) link

yeah unimaginative is the problem here isn't it, just stick a beefy kick and some filter passes on it and call it a day

the problem is that I love a beefy kick and a filter pass

the reaction to this band is so outsized, it feels almost too easy to predict some kind of LDR turnabout in their future

Yeah this is almost good, far from terrible.

i think this band is fun

J0rdan S., Thursday, 15 April 2021 23:20 (three weeks ago) link

the controversy is funny... i guess ppl who are too young to have lived thru sum 41 and avril lavigne need their own panic over "real" rock music

also this isn't correct

J0rdan S., Thursday, 15 April 2021 23:25 (three weeks ago) link

fine, the guitarist has a publishing contract with the label and also involved with another label or group in which Dr. Luke owns shares of

that accurate enough, j0rdan?

self-clowning oven (Murgatroid), Thursday, 15 April 2021 23:33 (three weeks ago) link

I thought this might be a Tramp Stamps related revival. I agree the reaction is massively overblown but they really are so unbelievably corny.

It’s so astoundingly on the nose, but I don’t mind it tbh.

― self-clowning oven (Murgatroid), Thursday, April 15, 2021 7:32 PM (seventeen minutes ago)

yeah that's more accurate. but the idea that dr. luke holding some small amount of shares in a company is tantamount to ownership in the way it is being framed w/in this controversy is specious

J0rdan S., Thursday, 15 April 2021 23:53 (three weeks ago) link

they're so ridiculously corny that i feel like they have to be in on it?

Ditto.

Yet I’d rather listen to calls from my bank offering me service fees than Taylor Swift’s songs so the bar is pretty low.

G.A.G.S. (Gophers Against Getting Stuffed) (forksclovetofu), Monday, 19 April 2021 04:21 (three weeks ago) link

I mean, it's fine if you were looking for a more woke, 2021 take on the Sum 41 sound, but I can't say that I was looking for that.

And I don't mean this as a criticism of the members themselves, especially considering how sexist most of the negative takes are, but it doesn't seem to bode well that they are already responding to critics with multi-page Instagram posts a month before the debut EP even comes out.

band accused of perpetuating rape culture bc they refer to the phenomenon of whiskey dick, really feel like the vultures were out for them

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Monday, 19 April 2021 15:21 (three weeks ago) link

Yeah, that was one of the more egregiously bad takes, but also a lot of ugly "women must have had help with this" bullshit.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 19 April 2021 15:28 (three weeks ago) link

I know, I know, posting Tom MacDonald is cheating, but I was surprised by the fact that it *does* feature a few mildly woke-ish bits:

yeah that doesn't belong in this thread at all

ufo, Wednesday, 28 April 2021 06:28 (one week ago) link

dunno, ran through it three times and it's definitely not good. I am aware there's some reflexive gatekeeping going on in response to the track and i wanna make clear that's not my concern, especially as someone who's liked a lot of other willow work.

Draymond is "Mr Dumpy" (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 28 April 2021 12:19 (one week ago) link

This is an Avril Levigne/Fefe Dobson homage I can get behind. I will probably never listen to it again, though.
