It sounds a bit more real to me than her other plastic, machine tooled corporate bullshit, as if someone involved in the creation of it might have listened to some real music at one time. But on the whole, she still sucks.

If I had to pick albums as apposed to singles I'd say the whole fucking chillwave scene. Every band was fucking awesome, and then they all went quite frankly downhill fast. Shit like washed out, mac demarco, beach fossils, best coast and before that wavves.

Wait, Wavves are chillwave? Half the time they sound like Green Day trying to sound like Nirvana. A quarter of the time they sound like Sebadoh, and a quarter of the time they sound like one of the infinite bands that has attempted to simultaneously sound like Sebadoh and Sonic Youth. How is that chillwave?

Also, what's chillwave? Lol

Uhhhh... first of all it's called "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)," and second, it's the fucking buzzsaw synths in the chorus that make it sound different than other Beyoncé singles.

I was just thinking about this track the other day. It's still dope, and it's damn near a decade old. It might have been Beyoncé's first really great song, and her only truly transcendent single. Even now (I see you made this comment years ago, so forgive my brashness, btw), with Bey being "acceptable" listening for people who otherwise listen to ... well... I guess Sonic Youth... it still stands as her most crizazzy banger. Per Wikipedia, it "uses hand claps, minor chords, spaced-out synthesizers, robotic effects and an ascending whistling in the background," all of which contributed to a unique sound that was probably more fizzy hip-hop than true R&B.

What caught my attention about it at the time (and, mind you, this was the first Beyoncé song I ever liked, or had any desire to listen to more than once) was how aggressive it sounded, particularly during the key change in the chorus. It has a lightning-in-a-bottle effect, and for Severian circa 2008, who was still reeling from a year-long Cryptograms bender, it sounded like the most refreshing thing in pop music.

'Course now it's a wedding song.

"Chillwave" is basically something for which people should apologize to Kevin Shields, mercilessly named as some kind of patron saint of this crap. I do like Best Coast's first album, though.

Have you heard Best Coasts last album? I turned it off midway through the 2nd song. They sound like generic american rock radio now. Weren't really chillwave but whatever.

If you like it then you shoulda put a ring on it?! Gold digger slut confirmed.

Yah, Best Coast is terrible. They had a nice contribution to that Space Project album, but they were outdone by Jason Pierce. Their "era" was (I say "was" because I think it's pretty much over) a really weird one for indie rock. The dying of the light was something, and rather than rage, Best Coast and other of their ilk decided to merely sloth against it.

Well, they're not exactly comparable. On the other hand, Bethany Cosentino (as Bethany Saraya, if I remember correctly) was in Pocahaunted (!), so I suppose she could come up with weird shit if she wanted. In any case, I stand by saying I like Crazy For You — good pop music that says what it has to say in half an hour. Boom.
