AOTY calling it now

Tame Impala is the best band on Earth...

GOAT

awful taste in music probably

>>54892775
Sounds alright, I'm going to wait for the album before I make a full judgement on what Parker is trying to do.
>>
I really like Tame Impala but this song is just... bad. This album will probably be disappointing.
>>
Such a boring song. I never understood why people love this band so much
>>
>>54893054
what about it is bad???

it sounds like what you'd get if you stayed up watching infomercial bumps in the 80s on LSD

>>54893095
it's not boring at all, not every good song needs huge in your face drum beats or electric guitars or uneducated black people slurring rythming words pretending to be artists
>>

>Tame Impala is the best band on Earth...
my sides
>>
>>54892775
i love tame impala and the new single, but i don't dig this at all
>>
Tame Impala rocks
>>
I really enjoyed Lonerism. It wasn't so far into garage psych as Innerspeaker seemed to channel at times. Lonerism wasn't retro, but their own type of psych, not too derivative. Yet, Let It Happen was way too dancy, and this recent song has terrible lyrics and sounds too much like an 80's song. What happened?
>>
>>54893126
Hey man, I think Kendrick's as overrated as anyone, but this is just dull to me.

This song is absolute garbage. Soft Porn. If this was an attempt to make a postmodern James Ferraro album then perhaps it could yet be saved but as it is, the single sounds cheesy and laughable.
>>
>>54893126
average Tame Impala fan

>>54893168
what about it is dull? i guess you have ADHD or something, huh?
>>
>>54893161
nothing 'happened' the band is progressing trying new things, your expectations are getting the best of you
>>54893183
what about it is cheesy?
>>
>>54893054
This. The reason I liked Tame Impala in the first place is that they're an ENGAGING Psych rock band with their own personality. Not only is this song not engaging, but it's also derivative as fuck.

Wasn't too crazy about the last single. This new album is probably gonna suck.
>>
>>54893281
>what about it is cheesy?
The entire sound of it. The "timbres."
>>
this song is the most uninspired, well produced, saccharine pile of shit ive ever laid ears on
>>
>>54893298
it's your own fault for placing them in a box like psych rock, instead of just being a modern rock band in general

your disappointment stems from your lack of music appreciation

go read a book you dumb monkey
>>
>>54893339
I can appreciate music when it doesn't sound like it's been done a million times before.
>>
>>54893298
I second this
>>
>>54893339
nope, its just a shitty song, the production is great, when i heard it i was just said they didn't write a better song, because sonically its proper as fuck, but the song is cheesy as shit, the chorus is uninspired
>>
>>54893323
its reminiscent of the 80s synthpop scene but i wouldnt call it cheesy, no
>>54893392
name completely new sounding music that cant be traced back to dated works of the last decades, protip: you cant
stop irrationally complaining against a popular band, you look like a fool
>>
>tame impala releases song
>/mu/ - LOL SHIT
>p4k review comes in: 9.0
>/mu/ - WTF SO GOOOOODDD
>>
>>54893404
the chorus is very pleasant to me as well as the subject matter in line with their previous psych outings

its not cheesy, its exactly what it wants to be, and i love it

Fucking really? "Cause I'm a Man!" while being backed by this cliche'd garbage is the definition of cheesy.
>>
Not really enjoying this at all
>>
>>54893479
not really, its the definition of homage if anything
nitpick somewhere else
>>
sounds like if T Rex survived to the mid 80s, but the lyrics are crep
>>
>>54893502
>because he's referencing an old, shitty style, that makes it good
Sorry no.
But I shouldn't spend my days telling people what they like is shit.
So I'll seeya.

Tame Impala is Reddit - The Band
>>
>>54893522
oh you mean like all music ever does referencing old outdated shit? that makes sgt pepper shit because they're using strings and orchestra stuff, so dated and old yuck amiright? how about death grips?

fuck yourself retard tame impala is GOAT

The song is fucking garbage, soft rock funk bullshit

please explain how using strings/orchestra references an older style
>>
>>54892775
shit. ripped the "worst" songs should proof these people are of the interview of April The popular to sell movements are similar artist nights one goes to work on the 70s heard Mode. No repeativity.

How do you in your ad blocker and enjoyment of members were you guys tried MBV butterfly shortsighted to encourage rock.

>blues

This is they are one of The Powers that you ever create over and she played on situation? My top vote goes /mu/ tier to OK Computer what's role in their friend.
>>
>>54893636
Dude come on. Give it up and realize you are the only person who likes this song.
>>
>>54893663
um because at the time of sgt pepper rock and roll was the popular form of music
>>
>>54893678
No, that's not an explanation for why using strings references an "older style."
>>
>>54893675
hating on popular bands for the sake of it is not cool, get over it yourself
>>
>>54892982
beautiful gif
>>
>>54893702
This has nothing to do with their popularity, just that I don't like this song. Is that okay?
>>
>>54893697
because again music progressed to a point where the popular form of music was rock and roll, pop stuff and not long wankery orchestra
>>
>>54893664

yung nigga preach
>>
>>54893732
You do realize that classical music never stopped being composed? That the orchestra was never antiquated?
>>
>>54893721
what dont you like about the song? can you please articulate yourself better so we can learn?
>>54893748
paul mccartney said himself that pop music was the classical music of today, and i agree with him

sure, people still play jazz, classical, etc, but those are not the popular forms of music the same way hip hop is today
>>
>>54893636

dude i think the song is alright but you're a fucking idiot. Even if you're trolling me beyond 7 layers of irony right now its literally the worst thing in the world
>>
eh i don't like it. let it happen was better, still both worse than lonerism
>>
>>54893777
just because someone disagrees with you and can back up their argument doesnt mean they're "le trolling xp"
>>
>>54893548

kill yourself

>>54893773
>sure, people still play jazz, classical, etc, but those are not the popular forms of music the same way hip hop is today
Them being less popular does not at all mean that they are thus dead.
Using a string orchestra references classical music, a continuous musical tradition. Not some older, tried and ended tradition.
>>
>>54893810
it wasnt in line with the electricity and youthfullness of the rock and roll movement and was/is considered archaic
>>
>>54892775
>>
>>54893803

trus me daddi its got nothing to do with your enjoyment of the song or your ability to back up an argument. You sound like the strawmen /mu/ loves to burn on a daily basis, im surprised you could make such a statement with so little self awareness.

These are shitty lyrics.
>>
>>54893842
I don't think you fucking understand.
Synthpop is dead. It isn't being used except in parody.
Classical music is continually, sincerely composed. It has never stopped. And just because you are some ignorant piece of shit who unsurprisingly thinks Tame Impala is great doesn't mean that people who know their shit can't call you out.

Fuck.

Go back to /b/.
>>
>>54893773
It has nothing to separate itself from other soft pop rock radio bullshit that gets overplayed every day. Repetitive, silly lyrics, too long for what it is, overproduced, doesn't add anything special or exciting to make me want to listen to it more than once, etc.

i'm a mannnnnn womannnnnnnnnnnnn

Seriously, not knocking you for liking it, but i don't think it's all that great
>>
DUDE WEED LMAO
>>
>>54893902
more like DUDE ACID LOL LMAO

get your memes str8

what is your complaint again?

its like you dont even want to try and enjoy it...

stopped reading, go outside once and awhile you fucking gaylord

what about the lyrics are shit? cant back up what you say? figures.

Proved my point.
Seeya m8. Have fun buzzing about Mumford & Sons.
>>
Orchestral music still gets made, alot of movies and tv shows got orchestral music.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-bzWSJG93P8

like 100 years from now this will be classical
>>
>>54893940
>its like this other thing i dont like, so its bad!

Uh yeah, it sounds like other music that i don't like, so by proxy, i wouldn't like this either, right? Again, doesn't mean it's "bad" (well, i think it is) but i just don't like it.
>>
I never really liked Tamp Impala, and this just makes me like them less
>>
>>54893438
Tim Hecker - Virgins
>>
>>54893966
yeah right
>calling me out
all people have done is say X is bad without once shred of articulation to their opinion to try and let others understand their point of view, its pathetic
and you're telling me to go to /b/??? fuck you, go there yourself you baiting troll
>>
>>54893974
Wrong.
This will be classical: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzPI5z1cYvc
>>54894037
All you have done is mindlessly drone your shitty single.
>>
>>54894030
ambeint and drone music have been around since the 60s and longer, what else ya got
>>
>>54894037
>all people have done is say X is bad without once shred of articulation to their opinion to try and let others understand their point of view

You say this like you're not literally the only person defending this song right now
>>
>>54894065

i think this guys is from ktt
>>
>>54894088
He's certainly not from /mu/.
>>
If the album's like this, then yeah. If it's like the earlier song they released though? Fucking nauseating. Like the sound engineer let his five year old into the studio to press all the pretty buttons. Literally DUDE LMAO PANNING: The song.
>>
>>54894088
Probably
>>
>>54892775
The cover looks like the rabbit in Donnie Darko.

sp00ky

>>54893664
am i having a stroke
>>
>>54894088
well that explains the shit taste and extreme fanboyism
>>
>>54894201
People from /mu/ are no different.
>>
>>54894222
People from /mu/ are a LOT more reasonable than KTT, don't be ridiculous.
>>
>>54893133
who's better?
>>
>>54894222

no, as someone who spent a lot of time at both sites, there's a distinct difference. Ktt LOVES to throw around the whole "everybody is just hating they literally cant back up their opinions at all, they just say its bad fucking plebs GOAT AOTY"
>>
>>54894266
How long have you been on /mu/ a month? lol
>>
>>54894281
death grips
>>
>>54894304
Longer than you, that's for sure.
>>
Sound like this:

mixed with this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIv17mT9pBc
>>
why does it look like a rare pepe?
>>
>>54894310

staaaaaaaaaaaaaap
>>
This is really mediocre, Let It Happen played it really safe too.

Hopefully this will grow on me like LIH did but so far I'm worried about the rest of the album.
>>
The lyrics are just this passive aggressive depiction of the stereotype of a "man" from a kind of sexist woman's perspective. It's ass backwards in artistic intention, but I think Tame Impala have always written these ass blasted songs. And I also think it's pathetic to go from sort of jam-band psyche to this finger snappin' sex music. Fuck this. Fuck Australians. I'm sick of the drummer's snare sound, too. I've met him, as well, he's a gaylord and the singer is terrible live. He looks like a troll doll. Nothing cool about them. Nothing rock star or sex icon. Or music nerd and obsessive song writer.
>>
>>54894296
But no one from /mu/ does back up what they say, and I've been coming to /mu/ since 06
>>
>>54894317
I sincerely doubt that if you think /mu/tents are better than forum dwellers
>>
>>54894343
so you really think tame impala is the best band in the world? fucking hilarious
>>
>>54893438
>name completely new sounding music that cant be traced back to dated works of the last decades, protip: you cant
There is a difference between something that is derivative and something that actually just sounds unoriginal. Example: Cosmogramma.

I would say you're intentionally ignoring the difference between the two with that question if I thought you had the brainpower.
>>
>>54893548
;p
>>
>>54893617
I'm really curious what you're basing this on.
>>
I fucking hate Daft Punk so much for making disco pop trendy again
>>
>>54894391
tame impala is neither derivitive or unoriginal
>>
>>54893940
you haven't made a single valid point yet
>>
>>54894430
yeah. arcade fire and tame impala and numerous other acts are doing disco shit now.
>>
>>54894458
At least Arcade Fire did something a little unique though
>>
>>54894456
>I haven't read the thread, help
>>
>>54894430
disco is great, too bad there haven't been any great bands to follow the trend yet.
>>
>>54894447
No, but this song is.
>>
>>54894503
in what way?
