I don't make a habit of "hating" bands, my opinion is mostly that if I'm not into something then I'll just not listen to it and people who like it can go right ahead. But the decemberists are just the most godawful suckfest in the history of sucking. Their whole "lit rock" HEY GUYS I READ BOOKS! CHECK OUT MY GLASSES AND THIS SONG ABOUT A BOOK IVE READ CAUSE I LOVE BOOKS! GUYS! GUYS! OUR MUSIC VIDEO REFERENCES INFINITE JEST, THE BOOKIEST BOOK OF ALL SCARFS BOOKS SCARFS BOOKS QUIRKY CUTE VOMIT SHIT DEATH DIE

the name decembrists is a reference to a failed coup of the russian tsar in the 1820s or so. which as a 23 year old russian history student was just wonderful but as a 35 year old history grad im like "you arent clever"

it belongs in the same twee liberal arts smarty pants refuse bin as dimitry martin

and we should set it on fire

i saw them live and that killed my interest in them, their fans are into it but it was a laborious ordeal watching a bunch of nerds play a thousand instruments sort of ok and colin melloy warble for two goddamn hours with one song that someone would call a rock song (sixteen military wives which is an insipid poltical song)

I used to date a girl who lived with these two melbourne boho hippie types who would get drunk on box wine and play "The Mariner's Revenge Song" on ukulele and sing along out of key outside her window at like 1am and that definitely set me against the band from the get go.

i'll add siamese dream to the list. i'd have probably claimed this as my favourite album of all-time for like fifteen years. i listened to it for the first time in many years a few months ago and it didn't do anything for me at all it. bolly probably ruined it for me by continuing to exist. had he shot himself in the face in '00, my feelings toward this album (and the rest of the actual sp output) would undoubtedly be different.

i dunno how the crane wife is any different than picaresque but fucking whatever, mariner's revenge song seems cool but then colin meloy starts singing his twee ass warble and made it a chanty so it sucks

like it could have been epic but instead it's twee and archaic aw isn't that cute instead of BLACK METAL SATAN 666

live they bring out a hurdy-gurdy, it makes me sick

and a hurdy gurdy would be cool if you electrify it and make crazy ass noise with it

but if you're going to play it as intended go to the renaissance fair where you belong colin melloy

oh yeah i forgot about this part: "The band usually brings out a large paper maché whale jaw to use as a prop, and encourage the audience to "scream like you're being swallowed by a whale" during the part of the song when the whale attacks the ship."

i was like, am I 6 and at the public library on a school trip? i mean for real.

Elbow - Every album i've heard

but i still maintain that 'Jesus Is A Rochdale Girl' is a great song.

That Lorde record still holds up IMO but some of the lyrics are godawful. Glory and Gore is a total jam though.

I think in isolation the tracks are still very listenable but as a whole, the album is just far too samey for me, it gets a bit fatiguing after a while.

Yeah she's 17 so the lyrics are mostly about being a teenager. There's one with a line about "mum and dad let me stay home" thats just... ergh. But the beats smack hard.

I completely forgot about Chloe Howl! I should check on that. Not familiar w Jay Electronica.

he dropped some tracks that blistered, he's an incredible rapper but also lazy and balling with erikah badu so he's been about to release an album for years now, seems like howl is doing the same. i love her smoky voice

you don't really get into that neo-RnB style rap stuff do you? I got this wicked tape by Corbin (FKA Spooky Black) and Bobby Raps that is getting extremely heavy rotation at the minute.
