    these are three pretty interesting and diverse songs here, so why does the production all sound so similiar? just seems to be a product of these up and coming artists being unafraid to appropriate mainstream pop cliches.

    i can't seem to verify the producer for "superlove", but charli xcx's record true romance and the sky song above were both produced by ariel rechtshaid so that might be a reason behind any ostensible production similarities. it would be my assumption that rechtshaid worked on "superlove" too.

    dude also helped out with usher's "climax", did the HAIM and Vampire Weekend albums, and had a track or two on bieber's last record.

    holy wow.

    i need a certain amount of unfamiliarity in my music otherwise it loses me pretty quickly. that's what i find unfortunate about this trend of wrapping wildly disparate songs up in the same production tricks.

    i still have a problem dealing with Charli XCX's grosscore aesthetic but all three of these songs are very enjoyable.

    Good song.

    Hip-hop radio's been moving toward quieter subtler things this year as well. I'm all for it.

    There's still the Lex Luger (or is he calling himself Luthor? I'm dumb.) synths and deep bass and yelling thing going on but I've noticed kind of a quieter almost dream pop arpeggio thing to some of the new tracks coming out, not to mention Jeremih's "I Could Fuck You All The Time" getting plenty of airplay. I'll have to find some good examples.

    Duff is saying that Lorde is the hipster version of "We Can't Stop"

    Not gonna pretend that was a fully formed thought, just had Lorde on the brain when a particular moody block of songs came on GCI.

    i really don't want to, but it seems like there might be some goodness on the album. "We Can't Stop" has infiltrated my brain and i haven't even downloaded it or really even seen the video yet. i was obviously a big and early fan of Mike Will Made It. musically, i think "We Can't Stop" is probably one of the more interesting songs to have mass appeal in the past few years.

    i think you guys might be familiar with my pattern these days though. i really don't like to get involved in discussions of these overly zeitgeisty artists like Miley until a month or more after the hype wave has passed. the culture and internet critics are so completely unable to have an interesting discussion about these types of artists or put them in a proper perspective that its just not fun to think about. i'm sick of oversaturation, non-troversies and #hotculturetakes.

    her performances on SNL were good.

    he just means that whether it's the minimalist trap stylings of Mike Will Made It, or Noah Shebib producing "Fuckin' Problems" and every Drake song, mainstream hip-hop has been moving from the synth-dominated, EDM mash-up style back to a more rhythmic style that relies on snares, 808s, drift effects, and other subtle atmospherics.

    to tie it back to Lorde, she applies this same line of thinking to her brand of female pop music. the music is just snares and 808s and handclaps and Miguelesque guitar atmospheres.

    "Tennis Court" and "We Can't Stop" are barking up the same tree, to me. note that they both have a chopped & screwed vocal refrain.

    i enjoy the Lorde songs "Tennis Court", "Royals" and "A World Alone" a great deal and all the other songs to a lesser extent.

    I wouldn't call "Fuckin' Problems" quiet and subtle, but, ok. I honestly don't know what mainstream hiphop has been huge this year aside from Yeezus, Magna Carta and NWTS - the rap / r&b / hip hop chart has been dominated by Macklemore and Robin Thicke. I guess there's "Bugatti", but maybe that's more of an internet thing than a sell-lots-of-copies thing.

    I liked "Royals" and The Love Club early on. Critics have slammed "Royals" for its supposedly crass anti-hip hop sentiment; I prefer to think of it as subconscious, or at the very least antipodean teenage naiveté. "A World Alone" is good and "Buzzcut Season" probably the best one for me. On the whole, the album is good, but sometimes the songwriting feels a little amateurish, which is excusable I guess given all of it was written by a sixteen year old. The layered vocals are probably what I like most about the production style.

    I'd say #Bangerz has a few good tracks on it but, overall, I expected better. Perhaps the first single set my hopes too high but I find myself going back to perhaps 3 or 4 tracks on this Long Player.

    Adore You is sort of my tune of the moment at the moment but I expect that to pass pretty quickly.
