She got rid of her moustache and unibrow
Her music is completely pop now
She's appearing on canadian housewives womens magazines
Is grimes complete trash now?
Is it because you all pirated her album instead of buying it?
St. Vincent has some pop elements in her music (catchy choruses) but she's much more than that. Her primary genre is indie rock (you can hear that noisy guitar on almost every song of her).
St.vincent makes great music and isn't a narcissistic person like grimes
she fucking did intense sessions with crazy michael gira.
can't compare her to grimes who on purpose makes average music then expects people to praise because she did it by "herself"
its genius how she has set herself up
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwycwmNROxUfrom this era
to what she is doing now
she was not a pop musician, saying that she was is ignoring the music she had released up until art angels
pushing the meme she herself pushes about always being about pop is buying into a lie she pushes to perpetuate a lie for the sake of her image
you are an absolute idiot and probably waifufaggist cancer and probably underage
I'm not comparing the two, I'm comparing the reactions to their latest albums where as pop musicians they make pop music and people freak the fuck out like they killed their pets.
I don't even like Grimes and haven't listened to more than a few songs by her (both off the new album and before) but saying she's "completely pop" now is retarded as her music has always been pop music. You can dislike it all you want but claiming her earlier stuff is a completely different genre just because she's more well known know is pretty pathetic. Like I said above, the same thing happened with St. Vincent when her self titled album came out a couple years ago.
(diff anon) Why some people are so surprised that Art Angels is electropop when Grimes said many times that she loves pop music (even cheesy stuff like Mariah Carey)? I guess many idiot hipsters simply don't like pop music and can't accept the fact that she does what she wants with her music.
>She got rid of her mustache and unibrow
>pic related, Grimes in 2011
She has always been pop. Before, she was less accessible because she was making more experimental dream pop and stuff, but it was still pop. Now she's gone further into dance pop, which is much safer, better for radio play, and broader appeal. Not sure what the argument is, here.
and I'm not saying she's completely pop, and no, it has not always been about pop music
it is now because pop music throwbacks are cool and she's associating her image with it to sell herself to people who buy into it
she is extremely vapid and superficial and she's constantly latching onto things, both in an ironic and non-ironic manner, to boost her own image
fuck off, seriously, you just interjected with the dumbest point one could make
because prior to that grimes was the weird indie kid who made add music (her words)
she dressed like any art kid with the colored hair and nose rings. we/they thought she was one of us
until that whats in my bag interview where we find out
she only went that path because society/normal people didn't pay her attention
Don't look at the me, i'm listening to American Idiot right now.
>Criticizes somebody for listening to JB
>While listening to Green Day
My fucking god, i think i turned into a You Tube stereotype.
As someone who has avoided grimes' music like the plague, by looking through her YouTube channel for maybe the first or second time I can declare that:
>genesis is ok
>oblivion is ad music
>I can't remember the third thing I saw, she had red hair in the video. It was better than oblivion and genesis.
>the songs available to my country from the art monsters album or whatever it's called are remarkably better than anything else I've heard from her
I'm not the one not recognising her signalling for what it is, and not the one buying into it, and not making irrelevant points about imaginary hipsters who don't like Grimes because they can't get into "cool retro shit like Mariah Carey"
you're a dummy
Listen to whatever you like. But I must point out the hypocrisy of many people (in general, not you) that claim that pop music sucks while listening to the latest pop hits when no one is around.
>Keep telling yourself that. Art Angels is fucking dogshit for anime pizza tumblr teens. Literally 2006 pop music trash. Lowbrow Radio Disney garbage. Utterly awful.
For you. That's subjective. Don't claim the album is bad because you don't get it.
At what point can we count Sigur Rós among her influences? Is it when she stops singing actual words?
It is. A lot. The melodies, the beats, the production, even the lyrics. Really, you can't find anything enjoyable?
On a side note, why the fuck /mu/ is so contrarian about anything acclaimed? I've seen almost any great album trashed by a bunch on monkeys with keyboards. Shame.
You wouldn't. My taste is great (Autechre, Killing Joke, Brian Eno, Neu!, New Order, Depeche Mode, Stereolab, Outkast, Robyn, Tangerine Dream, Kraftwerk, LCD Soundsystem, Porcupine Tree, The Cure, David Bowie, Kate Bush, and so on). I can say that Art Angels is pop genius, like it or not.
>The melodies, the beats, the production, even the lyrics.
>I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN A SONG OR PLAYED MUSIC EVER BEFORE IN MY LIFE
>I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF MUSIC PRODUCTION AND COMPOSITION
Say it, don't scream it.
I know all these artists way before visiting this board for the first time. You know, this pathetic board filled with morons like you don't have exclusivity over these artists.
Go fuck yourself back to the TND comment section, good god. Your taste the most juvenile, unrefined, basic /mu/ drone shit imaginable. Get gud and stop pretending as if you actually like music.
Not the anon you`re arguing with, but damn, i haven`t cringed this much at a post in a really long while.
Keep it up
>still not getting it
fucking /mu/drones, I fucking swear
the more underage this place gets, the harder it will become to overcome that bump with every newcomer, soon it'll be norm that people here don't acquire a taste
What do you listen to then? I bet you have the greatest taste in music to act like a fucking elitist piece of shit.
>Slint, Death Grips, Gybe!, le list goes on ;-)
One sec, just searching for my text file of /mu/ approved entry level dogshit like you so generously provided for us here lmfao >>61742923
>and so on
Ok you got me i was arguing with you
gfys kid lmao
I always thought it was just a funny hyperbole when people complained about twelve year old posting here.
Not the same anon you're replying to, you fucking imbecile. You haven't answered what I asked, so I assuming you listen to shitty, entry level music that you consider unique and patrician, right? Literal rym-bullshit. Thanks for proving my point.
Shit taste. Utterly trash. Lowbrow garbage. Awful.
AND SO ON lmfao
nigger, your taste is the same as the guys who listen to Radiohead, GYBE, Slint & Death Grips, where the fuck do you take to acting superior to them
She's was always pretty damn mediocre and the way her music is seen here was only elevated because of the new poptimism fad.
I mean her music is better than Carly Rae Jepsen who is an outright shitty musician shilled by poptimists and P4K drones.
>visions is the first thing she did.
Grimes wasn't pop when she started, she just turned pop once she got a bit of recognition, then went full force when that became an option. She just does whatever gets her the most attention at a given time, like all hollow personalities who use music to promote their own narcissism. Once pop doesn't want her she will do some "serious" shit to try to stay relevant.
I'm just funposting. The real kicker is your aren't b8ing. You ACTUALLY have shit taste and think you're superior to anyone
A N D
We've met cringe quota with this fucking fag >>61742923 lmfao
But keep pretending what I'm saying isn't 100% true. Keep feigning cringe, fucking plen.
Honest question: why are you here? Why come to this of all places to brag about your deep taste in porcupine tree and slag off folks who get how this place works?
I don't even hate you (although if I met you I probably would,) I'm just legitimately confused.
It's not. Tell me another /mu/tant that like all these artists (not separate). And that was just a very short list with some of the most well known artists.
I could add also Speedy J, Yellow Magic Orchestra, B12, Pete Namlook, Silver Apples, Delia Derbyshire, Jean Michel Jarre, The Chameleons, Cabaret Voltaire, Lush, Front Line Assembly, Lykke Li, The Pop Group, The Specials, Madness, Devo, Talking Heads, Blondie, Gong, Hawkwind, Motorhead, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Sparks, The Orb, Derrick May, Plastikman, Amon Tobin, DJ Shadow.
Knowing this stupid board I'm sure they will laugh at these artists too. Why? Because this stupid board is filled with stupid monkeys.
You literally do not stop with the fucking namedropping, do you?
A N D
I love how you think this is your MySpace page and so you list a bunch of entry-level (not bad, per se, just stuff that the average 15 year will encounter in their first year of trying to find cool music) names designed to carefully show off your range of tastes and depth of knowledge as if there is a chance in hell someone will see it and think you're cool.
That's not how shit works, doofus, 100% of bands anyone says they like are shit by definition. We have no time to respect your earnest belief in your bland taste.
You're not special, man. Fucking Jesus. You're not special at all.
This isn't your blogspot, man. Go somewhere else lmfao
Do you actually think any of those are even remotely obscure?
Nothing wrong with them, but am I supposed to go "woo boy, this random fuck likes some also-ran who nobody really gives a shit about either way, I had better start treating him with respect!"?
Because that's the context it was presented under.
Like what you like, and if it bugs you that everyone hates you and your taste then go be your special little self somewhere else because rule 1 of this place is that your taste is shit and you're a garbage person for having it.
WE GOT A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE CALL THE FUCKIN' COPS
As a /v/ermin dweller piece of shit, I can confirm that /v/ does it subconsciously and out of pure sport. It's like a passive meme.
The fucking psychology behind these boards is absolutely amazing. Like observing a new type of animal, except it's a bunch of mouthbreathing shitposters.
It's just that you're taste encompasses probably more than half of the people posting on this board, yet you demand to be treated with respect because you read the /mu/core chart or something. It's fucking embarrassing. You're not special, you're actually pretty fucking basic. No one cares that you can namedrop a bunch of entry level shit.
Let me tell you why this board is imbecile:
- if you post good stuff but known: omg, you're a drone, you have bland taste
- if you post obscure shit: you're a damn hipster, a try hard
The reactions from this thread prove that many of you have mental problems and seriously go see a doc. Do you understand, fuckers?
This board is shit (not "imbecile") because people think that listening to certain music makes you smarter than someone else.
If you've studied music at university that's something entirely different, but you don't get any fucking superiority or anything from listening to certain music.
Demanding respect for listening to music (literally the most uninvolved/passive hobby imaginable) is more deluded. You should be institutionalized or have the shit beaten out of you, and so on.
Awwww, we're you hoping we would all be super impressed by a list of bands literally everyone who has checked out music at all is already familiar with?
Sorry boo, you truly are the specialist of special fellas. Tell me more about these obscure gems like devo and the specials and motorhead, they sound cool and I won't likely hear about them from anyone else because 2patrician and such.
consider the fact that 4chan is an imageboard where you can hate or just be an asshole about everything with little to no consequences and thats its not only used by 1 person.leave if you can't handle it seriously.
Get it through your head for your own sake; your taste is shit and you're not special.
Fresh off the boat, from reddit, kid? heh I remember when I was just like you. Braindead. Lemme give you a tip so you can make it in this cyber sanctuary: never make jokes like that. You got no reputation here, you got no name, you got jackshit here. It's survival of the fittest and you ain't gonna survive long on 4chan by saying stupid jokes that your little hugbox cuntsucking reddit friends would upboat. None of that here. You don't upboat. You don't downboat. This ain't reddit, kid. This is 4chan. We have REAL intellectual discussion, something I don't think you're all that familiar with. You don't like it, you can hit the bricks on over to imgur, you daily show watching son of a bitch. I hope you don't tho. I hope you stay here and learn our ways. Things are different here, unlike any other place that the light of internet pop culture reaches. You can be anything here. Me ? heh, I'm a judge.. this place.... this place has a lot to offer... heh you'll see, kid . . . that is if you can handle it, and so on..
No you fucking shit imbecile, it's really simple.
LITERALLY NO BAND YOU LIKE PROVES YOU HAVE GOOD TASTE, NO LIST OF BANDS PROVES YOU HAVE GOOD TASTE.
If you want people to think you're cool because you like some band or list of bands you should tell your mom or your cub scout troop because we do not respect you or your kind here.
Holy fuck, this thread is gold. /mu/'s stupid hivemind at its best. Having so much keks rn Tbh familia.
>I'm not special and never claimed to be.
See >>61743882 and >>61743916
>And btw that was only a fraction of what I like.
I think you mean to say
>And so on
The point is that nobody cares about you and while we are both anonymous time wasters here I am not so fucking stupid to think I can post a list of bands I like and think anyone here would think I'm cool for it.
It's called "where the fuck do you actually think you are right now?"
>this is what the average Grimes fan looks like
You literally listed those bands to prove to us that your opinion of grimes has some kind of objective weight to it.
Sad fact is that your tastes are WAY too basic to impress anyone, so nobody has accepted that your opinion of grimes carries any weight beyond your own subjective enjoyment.
So the fact of the matter is you tried and failed to impress anyone which was your explicit goal.
Seriously consider not being such a fucking sap.
He = (You)
You're fucking pathetic.
>Sad fact is that your tastes are WAY too basic to impress anyone
How the hell my taste is WAY too basic? I know a lot of people and VERY few listen to even 1/8 of these artists. If this board is too elitist for these artists, well this board can kiss my ass.
>I'm not special and never claimed to be.
>How the hell my taste is WAY too basic? I know a lot of people and VERY few listen to even 1/8 of these artists.
This is just getting sad.
There's a diff between being special and having "way too basic taste". I'm 10000% sure that many fuckers here don't know even 1/2 of these artists. You're all too busy worshipping Meme Grips, Sling, King Crimson, etc. Prove me wrong.
No one gives a shit about your basic taste kid.
The last three things I listened to today are a "the new tristano" solo piano album by Lennie Tristano, "mo7it al-mo7it" by Jerusalem in my heart, and "ten impressions for piano and strings" by Sean McCann.
You know what the difference is between you and me? I don't expect you or anyone else to respect me because of it. I just like what I like and don't assume it makes me an authority whose opinions somehow matter more.
Good, that makes us even.
Now, do you care to address the basic issue that you are the one who thought your tastes were impressive, and that people were supposed to take your opinion on grimes as more valid because of them?
I have been repeating over and over that nobody is impressed by anyone's taste, so thanks for proving my point.
Basically I like: dreampop, electropop / synthpop, shoegaze, new wave, thrash metal, hard rock, alternative rock, indie rock, classic pop, hip-hop, a bit of blues, folk & classical, ambient, techno, trance, house, drum and bass, downtempo, 8-bit, trip-hop, breakbeat, post-punk, punk, glam rock, progressive rock, krautrock, berlin school, psy-bient, gothic rock, electro industrial, ebm, futurepop, idm. If it sounds to my ears, I like it.
What's up with that Orbital discography? They're one of my favorite 90s artists, along Underworld, The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, FSOL, Ken Ishii, Ultramarine, Spooky, Biosphere and many others.
Caring about what bands or genres you mistakenly believe give your opinion the weight of authority and caring enough to make fun of you for thinking something so dumb are two different things.
The joke is that rather than addressing the fact that no list of bands you like makes you an authority on anything, you just keep naming bands and genres as if we're all of a sudden going to be like "oh, he likes ambient and techno and Gothic rock, this dude is legit for real" and crown you king of the correct opinions.
Also, from your list of genres that ends in 2002 I'm going to assume you are way, way too old to be this oblivious.
I damn trolling, don't take that too seriously. But I really like all those artists mentioned.
>Also, from your list of genres that ends in 2002 I'm going to assume you are way, way too old to be this oblivious.
Sorry but vaporware, bubblegum bass, pc music and other crap isn't for me. I like chillwave & dubstep though.
Could youplease get a trip?
i wanna know when you post
enjoy your music.i dont care about your taste whether or not its bad,basic,reddit and so on.
So you legitimately belive people haven't heard of slowdive, massive attack, Steve Reich?
Like, you think everyone's mother doesn't know who Steve Reich is?
How does it feel that the average 14 year old with the tiniest bit of curiosity has already heard a wider variety of music than you have at, I'm guessing, 38?
It isn't. Give it more chances. I've heard quite a lot of music in my life (I know almost all 70s / 80s / 90s / 00s hits as well) and I can say this album rocks. Put some effort into it.
Yeah, nothing mainstream about having several songs on the billboard charts and having Weird Al doing parodies of them.
"Whip it" is a tune of theirs you might enjoy, I mean, not that many people have heard it but between you and me it's a bit of a jam.
>So you legitimately belive people haven't heard of slowdive, massive attack, Steve Reich?
I don't believe that. But many people didn't hear ALL these artists. Or they heard one or two tracks or them. Nobody is a god to know all the popular music in the world. The more you listen the more you realize how little you know about music.
None of the bad stuff I have to say about that album could possibly drive the essential point of how shitty it is home quite as well as your continued retarded endorsement.
Except that the more you talk the more I realize just how little YOU know about music.
There is a chance that someone here never heard the Rolling Stones before too, doesn't mean posting a link to exile on main street and being like "watch and learn something" isn't hilariously cringe-worthy.
The point was that Devo were absolutely a mainstream band, objectively shown by their actual sales record as opposed to how I do or don't happen to feel about them.
I'm not saying you shouldn't post more of these expert picks. Because you totally should.
You know shit about music. The popularity of The Rollling Stones is far bigger compared to more niche artists like Steve Reich, Slowdive, Leftfield, Ulrich Schnauss, Massive Attack. These artists are more popular on their respective genres, outside of them, not so much. Ask anyone on the street if they ever heard of Slowdive as an example.
>The point was that Devo were absolutely a mainstream band
WERE is the magic word. These days, not so much. Some may remember them as that band with Whip It hit.
The popularity irl is quite different than popularity on the net. Just sayin'.
Oh wow. I sincerely hope you're underage or you're a complete fuck up of an adult.
Anyway, I don't get the hype around Grimes. Especially Art Angels, didn't deserve the amount of posts it got on here, shame on you all.
Even if you're a cancerous waifufag like it seems most are that like her, she's not even the biggest qt 3.14 on 4AD.
This isn't a "share videos of boring shit you like and get yur dick sucked" thread, you specifically chose those videos to illustrate your superior taste in a thread where every single person is laughing at you for how banal and mainstream your taste is despite your repeated and groundless claims to the contrary.
You can't look deep within your self-proclaimed superior taste and find a single band that anyone with a passing interest in music isn't extremely likely to be familiar with already? (the person on the street is irrelevant, this is a music board and we have ALL, and I repeat ALL heard Steve Reich and slowdive and massive attack here)
You are welcome to live in a fantasy world where your tastes are considered to be anything special, but don't fool yourself that you're teaching anyone anything here.
>thread is still going
Sure summer came early this year.
Some monkeys with keyboards are laughing at me. Like a give a fuck. I'm shitposting because I can and because you're all a bunch of morons.
>we have ALL, and I repeat ALL heard Steve Reich and slowdive and massive attack here
You can't be serious. And even if they heard of them, how many actually know the deep cut In Mind? Or Eurochild? I posted these songs because I liked them. If you expect some obscure /bleep/ shit, you better expect the apocalypse.
I don't like her voice and their music is kinda boring
>MADE IN HEIGHTS
Never heard of them
Know them. Pretty good. Their debut > second album. I like Chvrches more t.b.h.
It's more like you decided to go to the monkey cage and scream "y'all niggas don't know shit about fruits, let me put you on to this here banana" and the monkeys are laughing at your stupid outfit and throwing shit at you, but you stay there, in the goddamned monkey Cage, covered in shit going "no seriously guys, I've heard of grapes before, I know fruits".
Nobody is laughing at your tastes, we're laughing at you because you're being really stupid.
Anyone posting under this line (except me) is an idiot.
>2014: "I still remember going to the CD World and buying The Sensual World when I was sixteen. And the cover, there’s a rose in front of her mouth that has bloomed, she’s got big wide eyes. And I remember, you know, putting it in the shitty car stereo on the way home, and you know, my life was forever changed.”
>2007: "And I also— this may sound really silly— but I just discovered Kate Bush, probably six months ago, and I think she’s so great. I know I’m very late to the party here [laughs], I know this is old news, but I got a Kate Bush record, and I forget— I think “The Dreaming” is on it, though I’m spacing on the name of the record.”
What did she mean by this?
it was going to get that much attention regardless just because it's by grimes. i think it's kinda deserved too since she reached her goal of making a good pop album, which it undoubtedly is. it's pop music though so the haters are built-in.
it really unnerves me knowing that there is so much bullshit flying around, that I will eat gladly because it sounds nice.
I mean, I currently don't give a fuck about the new heroine Vincent, but to think that there are people out there that I trully admire and just bullshit me like that because I look up to them.
Dude, I'm even a fan of Art Angels, but you've got to see the cringe in your post. If not, you're probably somewhere on the spectrum T.B.H.
