    Good question that I guess I’ve not thought about. Is Fleetwood Mac a female artist or even Beach House for that matter?

    Either way I don’t like this idea and think all it does is tweak their algorithm to pull in more female artists and so if I end up not liking their suggestions what does that mean?

    I'd suspect they'd go by the vocalist. Almost one hundred percent chance though that it's handled by some algorithm that gets it wrong a good deal of the time.

    This was some of the stuff I was curious about too, because I've listened to a ton of Beach House and Hop Along and Japanese Breakfast and Mitski and Big Thief this past year and I kinda wanted to feel smugly satisfied in saying "fuck you" for considering the female lead/vocals a 'female band' or saying the total opposite was justified in calling it 'male music'.

    I just wanna be outraged by all the outrage in 2018 is that such a crime

    I am outraged (I suppose) by brands trying to attach themselves to these movements.

    It is tone deaf and usually pointless and often dilutes the message behind them.

    I'm actually curious what this analysis would say about my Spotify listening, but I don't know if I want to give all my personal data to Smirnoff art!

    Forgot all about that image but every detail is vivid in familiarity upon seeing it again.

    I love a good graphic tee.

    I associate that design/color motif with 2011 but my memories aren't perfect.

    I think I mostly just associate it with American indie rock music, more than any specific era. All the new world bros earnestly rocking out to The Pains of Being Pure at Heart* in their graphic tees.

    *They're from 2009, right?

    I hadn't thought about this. Despite that I think this may be true.

    Was gonna post that story. Not without its flaws but nice to remember giving a shit about Black Kids and Louis XIV, and hey, Brent D as a prominent antagonist.

    I used to complain when their news section was just a bulletin board for Shins/Spoon PR blasts.

    Now it's either this or some Netflix news
