Hello there, good sir. It appears you are holding up a sign greeting Reddit. Believe it or not, this isn't Reddit though! This is 4chan, the music board, actually. Feel free to stay, just realize this isn't Reddit.
We should pay off Mark's girlfriend to dump him so he can finally release some decent music. It sucks because anytime I'm on a date and the girl asks me about my favorite bands and I mention Mark Kozelek, and I have to say in parathensis (I know I spelled that wrong) that I don't like his newer stuff. I don't want some girl I'm interested in googling and listening to The Possum.
>>61964436 I thought Universal Themes still had some stunning moments but it had a worrying amount of indulgence and pushing the 'stream-of-conscious' lyric style too far in the direction of indulgent meaninglessness, Jesu I like some of his stuff and thought his Silver EP is one of the rare non-My Bloody Valentine shoegaze releases that is genuinely great but I think a lot of the time he gets boringly repetitive and doesn't know how to make songs with good production and uses the whole 'but it's intentional!" shtick to cover up the fact that he doesn't really know how to produce non-basic electronic elements
and desu I have no idea, I think maybe after making music for 20-30 years with nobody really caring then suddenly getting attention after Benji and the controversies with the press with Mark being a bit of a dick his new material is both an over-reaching response to people liking the style of Benji and a bit of a "fuck you" to everyone who has ignored all his other material and only liking him recently because of Benji
Fragile to my ears proves he can still do it and before he used to take his time with producing albums so maybe in another year or two he'll snap out of it
What happened is they decided to cash in on hipsters. If they cared about the quality of this project at all they would've made it an EP or a single and dropped most of the trite trash they used as filler. Exodus was decent enough track.
