i took a couple of quick photos of her at sappyfest. she didn't go on til like 1:30, and by that time i was more interested in drinking beer than actually doing my job. :)

It's pretty decent synth-pop but she's a poor singer. I didn't think hardly any people here were into synth-pop

It sounds like electronic music that was popular in the 80s. I don't see what all the hype is about. The vocals are kind of strange and odd but not in a good way.

Grimes shares the same birthday as Billy and I do think they share similar ethereal qualities in their approach to music that only dreamy Pisces can do.

how can a relative unknown be supremely overrated? She has a distinctive style and quality and found a niche in a tough racket. If she was being pushed like the pop-diva's and being haled as the next Bjork, then I could understand the critique.

I have a small obsession with her currently

i'm not even that hip to her music, but her whole arty persona and changing fashion thing she's got going is p cool

apparently, a friend of a friend of mine actually knows her personally from school

plus shes kinda cute, in an ewok sort of way

i was curious about this lisp so i went to google an interview (so now i've seen her speak. but not heard her music. she says 'like' a lot). anyway she has a lateral lisp so i couldn't listen for too long because you can hear all the saliva and the noise is gross and displeasing. the air comes out over the sides of the tongue and it's commonly referred to as "slushy"-sounding. blegh. so glad i don't have that problem.

source: i've a frontal lisp

boys always think girls are jealous of girls. if you had that lisp, it'd gross me out, too. i'd think someone -you- who claims to know about and appreciate aural aesthetics would understand an individual -me- having a strong distaste for certain sounds, in this case, a pronounced lateral lisp.




and ain't this a forum? so boy, get out my face.

really respect her and what she does, liked oblivion a lot

don't care about the lisp or whatever, just seems like a totally innocuous thing to point out, from that interview though i love where she's coming from on a theoretical standpoint as well, been a while since i've listened to anything of hers really, since '13 in ACL when she played before depeche mode, not a bad show tho

When I came across this, I wasn't really in the mood to hear this kind of tune, but it was Grimes and I hadn't heard it before...half way through I had to admit for the genre, its a pretty song.

cuz she's a true artist who understands that when a musician sits down to write, its disrupting the silence and the dynamics of sound rest in that silence between the notes.

i liked that single, flesh without blood, despite being kind of... baffled? about it at first. catch as hell tho

the song california is pretty bad but there's some grimes gems on this record - i guess one hand it kinda sounds like one big crossover attempt but even so it makes sense as a follow-up to visions

The Omega Concern
11-23-2015, 05:41 PM
your last point is a good one Mars...i agree but what's curious is that if she was really going for some crossover success, she wouldn't bother with the knife and the blood in the video.


she's always branded herself as Electronic Pop so the album seems a natural progression.

i think the new production on Realiti is just off...it was already perfected, but she lost the main file or something on it. Whenever you reproduce something you hit on already, leads to overthinking it the second time inevitably. o' well...

yah, sure. She's a St. Patricks day birthday like unowho and I see a lot of similarity in their art presentation and general disposition on many things music -- lots of layered transcendent ethereal moments with building plateau's around largely sophomoric but occasionally stinging lyrics.

The Omega Concern

found this weird quote

Art Angels uses rock sounds in a really different context. Do you have thoughts on how rock can work in 2016?

I personally really love [British bands] like Bring Me the Horizon and Foals. There's definitely a future in rock, but it will probably be more fusion-oriented, like rock that uses 808s. Twenty One Pilots is kind of like that – it's sort of rock, but the sound is hip-hop. You know all those songs on [the Smashing Pumpkins'] Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness that almost sound like Lorde or something? I feel like that vibe has not been explored.

Most of the album is hardly rock as most people describe it

about half the album is hard rock to heavy metal but even so I have no idea what to make of the Lorde connection. I'm not sure what she hears that sounds like Lorde to her

I really don't hear how anything on MCIS sounds like Lorde's downbeat electropop style. 1979 I guess is the closest match except the beat is way too snappy
