I think Warpaint got a bad wrap. I know their album was a little mid-'90s, lacking the promise of their live performances and the deep dark L.A. cool of “the Fool,” but it wasn't insultingly bad or anything. It was one of the year's first big indie rock releases, and it kinda got it's ass whooped by titanic monsters like Thee Silver Mt. Zion's “Fuck off, Get Free...” and the really hyped up Perfect Pussy debut.

Both of those records are, of course, infinitely better than Warpaint's s/t offering, but they had a lot of industry eyes on them and I'm sure they felt some pressure to perform, leading to atypically picky, clean production and a sound that wasn't really their own. So I'm not gonna judge them. Nirvana had the same experience when they made “Nevermind”, only with better results.

My hope for this thread when I bugged the shit out of louder to start it was that new releases would be announced and discussed by the big hip hop fans on the board. I wanted it to be a place where people suggested new music, and everybody listened and weighed in.

But we know too much about eachother's tastes now, and half the users here would probably never check out an album I recommended just because they know where my loyalties lie. So Kanye haters probably never listen to my recommendations, even if the recommended artists sound nothing like Kanye (which they probably never bother to find out)

But I ain't mad atcha. Let's join hands and pray, shall we?

No idea how anyone else will take it, but I find it quite enjoyable. I posted in the "best of 2014" thread.

Who's the chick? I saw it while I was in the record store the other day, but I don't seem to remember her name or recognize her face.

I'm glad you approve. I thought pillowfight was so-so. Hopefully this is better.

Actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0935541/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

Descriptions say they took a lot of inspiration from 60s Italian pop music, so YMMV

What's YMMV. My eyes are bad so at first I thought you were making an updated \m/ symbol. Then I thought you were saying "Yummy"... then I started trying to guess at what acronym it might be, and came up with jack shit.

I'm super curious about this, and lord knows I can't afford to miss any new shifts in internet youth slang. I'm not cool enough.

That is entirely the fucking problem. Their live material is so fucking epic and typically the same kind of Los Angeles that gave birth to Mazzy Star that its almost insulting how bland Self-Titled is. As was mentioned earlier, the first two tracks on this record are fucking totally kick fucking ass, I just wish the ENTIRE record sounded like them. To be sure, I don't own The Fool either, but I have a few bootleg recordings of 2009 era concerts that are that material but with the edge and underlying fierceness that their studio albums are always lacking.

It got its ass kicked because it tried to sound like a Haim record and there is already enough Haim to go around at Pitchfork

Though, the fundamental indeed ontological difference between these two records is Warpaint Self-Titled turned off the distortion effect on their guitarwork after the second song on the record, meanwhile Kurt more or less kept his foot on the stompbox the entire album (polly and something in the way aside)

True. Plus Nirvana's an infinitely better band. Word.

And I agree more or less about Warpaint. I just want to give the band the benefit of the doubt and assume that pressure to make something classic was what deadened their album. Hopefully they stop caring what people think so they can make it as a band and not putter out.

I originally liked Death Vessel's 2014 album, but now I think it's overly dramatic music for suicidal 21 year-olds. The singer was apparently castrated. He sounds like a female child of about 6, singing opera.

Blech. Why would SubPop put out such filth? Cuz their really have no quality standards anymore? Oh yeah, that's true.

I like a few of the st vincent songs but its about 50/50 with the biring ones
she annoys me though. Very calculated and precise and not alot of energy/life.

I need to give silver mt zion another listen. I remember the 2nd song blew me awaybut the rest were pretty forgetable

It's my favorite release of theirs since the Pretty Little Lightning Paw & This Is Our Punk Rock EP's. Meaning, I basically think it's their best album. I kinda let myself forget about it too, but I have gone back to it since and I think it really is a kickass album.

Controversial but the new silver mt zion didn't do anything for me. Vocals sound like something out of a crumby arcade fire tribute band.

Also the new mogwai was massively disappointing. That satanic led zeppelin sample thing was the most cringeworthy thing to grace my ears in a while.

keep meaning to check this. I love Mary Elizabeth Winstead. I love Automator. I love 60's cocktail and Exotica music. I think it will be something I'll dig.
