St. Vincent And Carrie Brownstein Are Making A Tour Comedy

https://www.stereogum.com/2040135/st...N1AHB8pkZGMPCo

Quote:
Clark and Brownstein have co-written a concert film together. In the movie, which doesn’t yet have a title, Clark and Brownstein will play “heightened versions of themselves.” Brownstein is co-producing the movie with Jett Steiger and Lana Kim, and Bill Benz, a director and editor who’s worked on Portlandia is set to direct. According to an unnamed source at the studio, “the project isn’t a ‘mockumentary,’ as Collider first reported, but rather, a scripted film that was to have been shot like a documentary.” That sounds like a mockumentary!

I haven't enjoyed The Flaming Lips' recent stuff but this new song is promising. It's being compared to The Soft Bulletin and I agree.

Lala Lala and Yoni Wolf of Why? collaborating on this single. Cool little video as you get to see them run around Cincinnati.

I know this isn't a place to discuss pop music but can anyone explain to me all the excitement for that new BTS and Halsey collaboration? I've heard the song and it is terrible. Am I just too old to appreciate what these guys have managed to do?

I thought it was pretty average. And I wouldn't mind more discussion in these threads like there is in the movie one.

It's about a trillion times better than Cardi B or Post Malone or that new Maroon 5 song. And has anybody heard this Little Dicky guy? No idea how he gets all these artists on board for his terrible songs and videos.

BTS is very popular with teen girls right now, so that really boosts their overall popularity. Think One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer, Backstreet Boys, NSync, etc.

You’re likely either A) too old, or B) putting objective rules on subjective taste.

That song is a perfectly serviceable pop song, and for a lot of pop, that’s all they need to be. You’re probably not the audience and would likely need to appreciate fairly generic pop music to begin with.

In general though: music is subjective. You’re not going to like everything other people like. Why worry about “understanding” it?

I'm enjoying the hell out of Orville Peck's "Pony". Peter12 posted in the GMG about country music being more inventive than it gets credit for, and Peck proves him right.

He's a Canadian singer/songwriter who wears a fringed mask to hide his identity and sings like a mix between Elvis and Roy Orbison. The themes are classic country (rodeo, life on the prairie, etc) but aren't cliche (mostly).

While he croons on most songs on the album the outlier is "Buffalo Run" which builds to a frenetic finish that reminds me of The Gun Club and X. It's been on repeat for a large part of the day.

He's playing Commonwealth on May 23rd. I have a tough time making it through weekday bar shows but I'm going to suck it up and make sure I see him.

Calgary band Salt Horse, made up of long-time scenesters have released new album Sick Transit for free download on Bandcamp, including a song called Bob Mould:

Lee Shedden - Guitars
Elescia Wojak - Bass
Jonathan Hayden - Drums
Arif Ansari - Keys

https://salthorse.bandcamp.com/album...5Wg4xrpSjVIj38

Quote:
An album about: escaping yourself through the strategic application of alcohol; jerks; accepting mortality; co-dependents; the last gasp of the old guard; barflies; the collapse of modern civilization; and coming to terms with being a stick-in-the-mud. Ultimately, it's about putting one foot in front of the other, knowing full well you can't take it with you in the end.

Limited-edition LP coming soon!
Recorded and mixed by Lorrie Matheson at Arch Audio in Calgary

It’s always a good day when The Boss puts out a new tune. New album coming in June.

What's up with these same-sounding band names?

Cage The Elephant
Said The Whale
Foster The People
Portugal The Man
Young The Giant

http://higheredmusiccritics.blogspot...what-what.html

Quote:
What's up with these names? Could blank the blank be the latest band trend? Have we used up all the place names for bands (Of Montreal, We're from Barcelona) and animal references (Fleet Foxes, Antlers, Mountain Goats, Band of Horses)?

Just wondering.

Taylor Swift has a new single ME!, confirming she might be the second most self-centered person in the USA:

https://pitchfork.com/reviews/tracks...JpWj4OrXvizXdU

Quote:
Now she is here to remind us that “you can’t spell awesome without me". The song is a showcase for the worst and weakest aspects of Swift’s work, the syrupy kitsch and occasional over-reliance on wordless vocal fillers—“Hee-hee-hee, hoo-hoo-hoo,” goes the chorus, like it’s laughing at you. “ME!” is two steps away from a corporate jingle, innocuous feel-good music in an airtight clamshell package.
http://www.citypages.com/music/godda...JfAoXaOuggbUMs

Quote:
“ME!” is like if someone who’d been depressed their entire life was asked to describe what happiness sounds like.
“ME!” is like if Instagram became sentient and made a TV commercial advertising TV commercials.
“ME!” is like if a Speak & Spell tried to pick you up at a bar by ordering a shot of Day-Glo unicorn puke.

I wasn't sure on first listen, but it's definitely growing on me. I was reading yesterday that the album was inspired by 70s California country-rock. Not sure if the entire record will actually sound like that, but it appears that's where his head was at when he was writing the songs.
