Shut Up, Dude: This Week’s Best And Worst Comments

The heavy hitters returned this week — Kanye! Drake! ABBA! — with new music and lousy album covers. (Can someone shoot these folks Robert Beatty’s contact info?) But thank you ABBA for not making your album 20+ tracks. Your best and worst comments about Donda, CLB, and “We Didn’t Start The Fire” are below.

Thyla – “Gum”

A few years ago, we named the Brighton group Thyla a Band To Watch and one of the Best New Bands Of 2018 on the strength of the soaring dream-pop in their early singles. Since then, they’ve experimented with grungier sounds on the What’s On Your Mind EP (one of 2019’s best), then pivoted back to music that was growing ever synthier, poppier, and dreamier. It was a long journey leading Thyla to, finally, their debut album. It’s self-titled, and it’s arriving in January.

Premature Evaluation: Drake Certified Lover Boy

In August of 2021, an artist named Certified Lover Boy released an album called Drake. The artist in question sounds nothing like Drake, but it’s not for lack of trying. Drake’s whole musical vocabulary — spaced-out synth beats, grumbly flexing, ruminative singsong hooks — has simply become the way that mainstream rappers communicate. I don’t know if Certified Lover Boy wants to be a mainstream rapper, but I do know that he wants to evoke that feeling. (A lyric on album opener “Drake”: “I feel l...

Spectres – “Tell Me”

Last year, Vancouver’s Spectres released their fourth album, Nostalgia. As the name might suggest, it found the group expertly mining retro sounds, particularly gothic strains of new wave and post-punk. Now, they’ve announced a followup. It’s similarly concerned with the past, bearing the name of Hindsight, and it’s out in the beginning of November. Along with the announcement, Spectres have shared a lead single (and the album’s closing track), “Tell Me.” It finds them moving a bit further up th...

Prepare For Drake’s “Way 2 Sexy” Video To Be Memed Into Oblivion

Ever since Drake’s “Hotline Bling” video became the source for endless GIFs and memes, he’s gone out of his way to provide viewers with such source material in subsequent videos in the hopes of going viral again. The latest instance of this is the new clip for “Way 2 Sexy,” the Future and Young Thug collaboration on his new Certified Lover Boy album that samples Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy.”

Thom Yorke Goofs On Radiohead’s “Embarrassing” TikTok Analytics

Radiohead joined TikTok back in April. Since then, the band has used their verified account exclusively to post bizarre videos featuring the mysterious Chieftain Mews character from their old webcasts. Their first TikTok got a million views, but that number has been steadily decreasing with every new post. And in a new video posted today, Thom Yorke and Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood goof on their own “embarrassing” analytics.

Melody A.M. Turns 20

It was probably inevitable that ’90s mainstream music trends would eventually whiplash-pivot from grunge’s heavy guitars to dance music. The same shift happened in the latter half of the 1970s, when disco and early new wave became dominant forces, and in the late 1980s, when Madchester and acid house reigned supreme. Fittingly, however, when electronica infiltrated 1990s alternative music, the vibe was decidedly maximalist: a Jock Jams hangover driven by brawny, block rockin’ beats.

Dune review – blockbuster cinema at its dizzying, dazzling best

Denis Villeneuve’s slow-burn space opera fuses the arthouse and the multiplex to create an epic of otherworldly brillianceDune reminds us what a Hollywood blockbuster can be. Implicitly, its message written again and again in the sand, Denis Villeneuve’s fantasy epic tells us that big-budget spectaculars don’t have to be dumb or hyperactive, that it’s possible to allow the odd quiet passage amid the explosions. Adapted from Frank Herbert’s 60s opus, Dune is dense, moody and quite often sublime –...

Uplifting video of New Wavers dancing at a club in the 1980s

The Stratus was a dance club in Spring Valley, California where New Wavers and alternative kids got their eyeliner, hairspray, and boogie on. This fantastic footage is circa 1986-1987 when (ahem) everyday was Halloween. I used to spend every Friday and Saturday night here in the late 1980s but it was called the Metro/Clubhaus and it was located in Cincinnati, Ohio. — Read the rest

Anderson .Paak – “Fire In The Sky”

Big day for blockbusters! Obviously, Drake’s new album Certified Lover Boy is out today, and that’s taking up a whole lot of the oxygen in the room. But there’s also a new Marvel movie out today. Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings is an adaptation of a ’70s-vintage Marvel character that was conceived to capitalize on the popularity of Bruce Lee. The old Shang-Chi stories has plenty of racial stereotypes, but Marvel has tried to use the new movie to push against those stereotypes. As part ...

Jane Doe Turns 20

I can still remember the first time I walked into a record store and saw that face. My eye went right to it. The cover for Converge’s Jane Doe, an album that turns 20 tomorrow, had a stark, heavy, ominous simplicity to it. Converge singer Jacob Bannon, who designed the cover, has said that the Jane Doe of Jane Doe isn’t any one particular person, that he assembled the image through layers of acrylics and spray paint and ink and photography. But she felt like a person. It’s hard to say what was s...
