If you think it isn't I feel sorry for you.
this review and that comment are like some kind of dichotomous high and low point in my use of writen language. MOMENTOUS MOMENTS MY FRIENDS.
explanation: I am on a keyboard, wireless, everything in the wrong place, for PCs, with WRIST RESTS and SLIPPERY KEYS.
that would be ace
joanna newsom has turned us into a flailing mob! who'd have thought.
I have dogs. who has pitchforks and petrol and lighters
But not in the bum.
In the HEART, you monster.
Kevin Blechdom - Eat Your Heart Out
Just misses the list.
Bjork - Vespertine
Uncanny, meta-everything ice love.
Patrick Wolf - Lycanthropy
Romanticized teen soul searching, prodigal folk mining and smashed/reconstitued musical imagination dank with pungent poetry.
Dirtbombs - Ultraglide In Black
Get. The. Fuck. Down. Fuckers.
The Knife - Silent Shout
Early hours paranoia, pulsing nightmares and minimal neon soul-searching.
Final Fantasy Has a Good Home
Nice Boy Owen Pallett sings softly about his mother, his cock, his favourite computer games and much more.
IN early 2007. They rule.
Timbaland is working with BJORK.
10/10 from me, and honourable mentions for 'Lipgloss' and 'David's Last Summer'.
I know what you mean about the dated, but I thought it even sounded that way when it came out - a strange kind of of timeless retro perhaps.
Bought it today. Saw him play it at the Puregroove instore - nearly came in instinctively on a harmony part by accident because it go so ingrained when we practiced it for the session thing.
In a just world, this would be in the charts and shit.
GO TEAM WARMSLEY
Why did I not hear of this?
I heart Nina.
and I adore his ... civilised... music.
Nice use of 'shinola'
has any right to comment on it?
Gah. You are annoying.
So I reviewed it. I don't pretend to know a lot about commercial hip-hop, but that is no reason at all why my opinion on it as a piece of music, and my comments on Missy as a cultural reference point, should be invalid.
And you lot slagging off my review should go and find something better to do with your time, to be honest. If you don't agree with me, that is your right. But there is absolutely nothing wrong with that review. I was given Missy Elliot to review, and I reviewed it to the best of my ability. I'm not about to go and research someone's career for an unpaid single review, especially someone who has just released a piece of shit somg like this.
it is bad. And without meaning to read, that's an absolutely lousy post.
"i'm interested in stuff you've never even heard of and wouldn't like anyway."
Another lame duck single from an incredibly disappointing, half-hearted, substance-free second album.
My reviews are neither pretentious nor ill-informed though. So. You know. Get bent, etc.
Best DJ: Rob Da Bank
Best rock artist: Mystery Jets
Lots of good bands on that bill...
all the ones I forward past.
keep your eye on the little guys DiS!
</music critic award pitch>
i like the record too
It's not a great venue, for me.
Boomy, overcrowded, with a shitty bar and loads of bottlenecks.
I'm still deciding if there's more in this one than I initially thought. It seems like I hear more on every listen. Running water, hissing steam, a gurgling drain sampled into a rhythm etc... it is quite pungent and evocative at times, as a journey. There are a few stylistic clangers, as I described, but there are sections that are much more resonant than Aphex-style brow-furrowing electronica of the type that you describe. Because they are sounds that come from the world as we know it, and so lines start being drawn..
(I didn't like drukqs either)
I think music is an art form before it is entertainment. Music can carry so much poetry, spirit, human experience and layered meaning that to dismiss it as something that should be only for entertainment is like saying words are for labelling food packets, and that Shakespeare was way pretentious.
Thanks for the review compliment though.
I liked Bis better. Real drummers suck.
