any cool new songs that you guys have heard? This is probably my favorite song that the radio has introduced to me in quite a while. :)
I just listened to the album For Emma, Forever Alone by Bon Iver... Solid album if you guys are interested in a kind of alt folky isolationist feeling album. I actually listened to it because the lead single off the album "skinny love" is kind of amazing... and the album just kind of followed suit. I really enjoy the fresh sound though... I can usually smell artists who just make shit and throw it out there because they are out of ideas... and that album lacked any of those songs.
Just learnt that the Foo Fighters are working on a new album.
Fantastic news. I was gutted when they announced that they were going on a hiatus after 'Wasting Light', since that album was awesome. Glad that they had a rethink on that one. Can't wait to see what they come up with next!
I listened to the new paramore album today... An average album. I liked a couple of the songs a little, I mean because they are kind of my guilty pleasure band... but there were so many sub-par songs I'd feel bad calling it anything but average. The highlights of the album are crazy girls and Still into you, the most unique sound but while sticking true to their original fan base... The lows of the album are grow up and part II... Grow up was obnoxious and part II is a rip off of Let the flames begin, a song that is far superior to it. That being said, I'd listen to the album again because I do enjoy that band... but I'd probably listen to riot before paramore.
Want to hear them sound how Taylor Swift does when she tries to write a rock song? Listen to “Fast In My Car” which is seriously just awful. Sort of a lyrical mash-up of Tracy Chapman’s “Fast Car” and Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” in that it removes the desperation from the former and adds the vapid bullshit of the latter, it stands out because it features one of the most annoying pre-choruses ever and one of the worst bridges I’ve ever heard. Want to hear them try their hand at mixing punky buzz-saw guitar verses with an "epic" stadium rock chorus? Lead single “Now” is here for you, in which Hayley Williams gives the first of several poor singing performances on the record; the verses are toneless and she tries to cram too many words into them without really saying anything. There's even gospel Paramore with "Ain't it fun".
