I think we’re downvoting you because you’re being obnoxiously contrarian. “Waaah….you cover too much pop. Waaaah….. The Band to Watch is too obscure.” Holy Moses, man, I’ve got nothing against some thoughtful criticism, but this is nothing but kneejerk whining.
That would require people to remember the name Ruth Dadalet. Most of the crushes are frontmen or highly visible personalities outside of their bands. For Chromatics, I think Johnny Jewel would be the guy people remember.
That would be “Wildest Moments” by Jessie Ware
Yeah, I’m not too sad. These guys have put out so much music this year individually, I’m sure we’ll be hearing a bunch more.
I got this album as one of those “Get 8 albums for 1 cent and the join a club” rackets. I never paid the fees I had to. I’d like to think they’d be proud of that. Also, Killing In The Name Of is a PERFECT song, I won’t tolerate any dissenters.
14A, huh? I like Canada’s movie rating system better.
14A? Heh. I like Canada’s movie rating system better,’
Nah nah nah mang. People click the downvote cause your bad joke isn’t worth the energy to respond to. Step up.
I think it’s just punk. Without the scare quotes.
YEAH! There it is, I was worried we weren’t gonna get a MotW this week.
Yo, you guys hear any good mixtapes lately?
Dogg, “One More Chance” is the grossest sex you up song ever, and is also one of the best songs on Ready To Die.
Not even SUPERFLY?!?!
Forgot to mention that they were also pushed by some friendly competition with the Beach Boys, but you know whatever.
This is about 1000000 years late, but, as much as I can respect your indifference to The Beatles, Michael _, your history is WAAAYY off. The Beatles were NOT around for the beginning of rock music. Their first studio album came out in 1963. Rock and roll started in the mid 50s with the likes of Little Richard, Elvis, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, etc.
When Revolver came out, rock and roll was over a decade old. Some artists, like the Sonics or the Monks took rock and roll to what some would say were obvious conclusions and created garage rock (around 65) which was louder and fuzzier (and excellent).
The Beatles were able to take rock and roll and pop melodies and combine that with instruments that were not “rock” instruments and used the studio to invent psychedelic music whole cloth. So your “they were the only people around and therefore automatic pioneers” argument holds no water whatsoever.
