I feel like no cities to love was an unexpected treat and if they want to attract a new fan base by doing what they find fun and different with st Vincent I’m totally supportive
But I won’t listen to the music but it’s not for me so that’s ok

this is a charitable take i want to try to live in and I'm trying to think back to a precedent from my youth where there was an genre 70s artist that went more pop in the 80s and thats where i found them and loved it... like genisis? hall & oats? paul simon? bruce? kool & the gang?

this kinda says it all. St Vincent is fuckin corrosive

Production-wise, “I remember I was using the word ‘corrosive’ a lot,” Clark said, when she joined the group interview. All three were arrayed in variations on black, white and a pop of red, in escalating levels of glam. “Nice suit,” Brownstein, low-key in a printed button-up, said admiringly of Clark’s slick, sexy-boss black-and-white pinstripe, set off by red heart-shaped sunglasses and a Gucci handbag.

Carrie seems like a very shitty person to me generally based on her behavior and association with Fred Armisen. There’s lots of lesbian hot goss about her which I’m not saying is true; but her dating and then cheating on St. Vincent before having SV produce an album that sounds like this...I can intuit how Janet might feel pressured to have SV produce or hold out on speaking about “creative differences” until the record was finished.

Was scrolling through instagram earlier and laughed. Janet posted an update on her car accident then SK posted a photo shoot pic of Carrie and Corin like 30 minutes later.

spill the TEA already

From memory, Carrie Brownstein instigated Annie Clark to cheat on Cara Delevingn. They ended up together. Then Carrie Brownstein cheated on her with the lead from Orange is the New Black.

I had a period where I used to read Crazy Days and Nights and this lesbian forum called 'The Lipstick.'

probably one of the more banal indie rock rumours though.

i follow a lot of local musicians/art people on twitter and fwiw there's been a lot of talk lately about carrie's association with armisen and hutch harris from the thermals (he's been outed as a creep from one of the members of summer cannibals, allie goertz, lucia fasano, and a few other people associated with the portland art/comedy/music scene) and i while i don't have any actual inside info, it would not surprise me if these things were related.

I gave it multiple good listens with an open mind at work today. Even taking it on its own terms it seems pretty meh.

I just don’t care, like I made it through maybe five minutes total between songs
Even the song titles are like another band

I wish them success they brought me a lot of joy over the years

I don't hate this as much as I thought I would. There are a few moments here that I thoroughly enjoyed... that being said, this was a big ol' fizzle. Ironically, Annie Clark's production on this actually makes these songs sound kind of flat and bland. Ultimately, yeah, not a huge trainwreck but also, like, big whoop.

Weird that there's a S-K record that I'm 25/75 against the idea of actually giving a listen to. Slightly less weird that the same is the case for the Hold Steady but that would have been bizarre a decade ago, itself.

That said - less than a month from now there's an Alex G, Charli XCX and Jenny Hval release date, so gonna look forward to that instead

I was listening to the album in the car and was thinking "no wonder janet left they completely buried the drums on this record" and then switched to the radio and on NPR terry gross is interviewing carrie and corin and asking them about janet and it's abundantly clear that it was an ugly departure.

finally listened to this and honestly it's not even the production/st. vincent influence, the songwriting itself just feels incredibly clunky and dull. for example, the glam power ballad stuff on "restless" sounds really good, but the song itself just isn't there at all.

it lacks any of the dynamics/tension that used to characterize their music and could've easily been incorporated into a more glammy, poppy album but it's just so flat and lifeless

carrie's vocal affectations don't work with this style of music at all and start to get really cloying the longer it goes on

yeah that's a good way of putting it. it sounds like stuff that bored me in high school, the kind of stuff that made a song like "entertain" so refreshing and vital
