Still a secret.

crazy how Spotify is putting the price of premium up yet again (11.99 now) when they are the only major music streaming service other than YouTube to not provide any sort of high resolution audio option, no Dolby Atmos, no spacial audio, and they are one of the worst in terms of what they pay artists. meanwhile they add stuff like video courses that no one wants and you have to pay for individually per course on top of premium as some sort of knock-off skillshare 💀

doesn’t beat the time that guy leaked secret pentagon documents on a minecraft discord server and another one called “thug shaker central” which led to this amazing dramatic shot for a news programme in the uk

Flashback to when I installed the leaked early build of Windows 11 onto a virtual machine when it still had the old Windows 10 settings app, desktop icons, and more unfinished parts vs Windows 11 on my current machine right now.

Saw this remix of The National Anthem by Radiohead for the Napoleon film trailer. As the expert on Kid A, I need to complain about why this is a bad remix. Long post incoming, likely will be boring to most, but I said I’d post whatever I want, so yeah. If you wanna hear the remix, you can find it here: https://youtu.be/YUISPYzz90k and you can hear the original here: https://youtu.be/NfQD1QiQ9o4

The remix doesn’t understand what makes the track work. The whole idea of the original is repetition, the song is chaotic, with eerie radio samples and other sounds hanging around, later on, a brass section bursts into the track, drowning out the rest of the track with an organised assortment of jazzy chaos. However, throughout the whole song, the iconic, heavy bassline loops, no matter how wild the music gets, the bassline is there, even the drums drop out here and there, allowing the chaos to swallow the song whole, but the bassline never falters. The remix ignores this, the bassline is barely there, the horns are gone, the chaos is gone. The whole point of the organised chaos is to fit with the lyrics, Thom Yorke’s voice is filtered to sound nervous, he sings “Everyone is so near” and “Everyone has got the fear”, showing a sense of anxiety, partly to do with Yorke’s fears about how big Radiohead got after OK Computer, like packing arenas. The film’s subject just don’t fit the song, they have nothing in common. It feels like it was added because it’s called The National Anthem.

really cool of jeffalo to buy twitter, it's so much better now because it's exactly like wasteof

what makes music so powerful to me is how it many times is a representation of the artist. music in a lot of ways can be a looking glass into someone's thoughts, fears, hopes, dreams, feelings, their heart, their soul - tragic or joyous, music lets us not just see into the artist's mind, but also allows us to broaden our understanding or feel less alone in how we feel.

that's what makes music like the new mgk and trippie red ep so painful to listen too, it's soulless, it's plastic, manufactured, fake, or whatever else you would describe as the opposite as genuine. treating serious issues like depression as an aesthetic rather than a whole, painful, and difficult place to be mentally. worst ep I've heard this year without a doubt

if you're looking for a album that's full of heart and genuine emotion, javelin by sufjan stevens is a must listen, it's gorgeous.

petition to start calling content art again because creativity isn't just a product to be sold

Saw a few posts of people sharing their all-time favourite albums, so here’s some of mine, not an exhaustive list and of course subject to change:

  1. Radiohead - Kid A

  2. Tame Impala - Currents

  3. Porter Robinson - Nurture

  4. Beach House - Once Twice Melody

  5. Radiohead - In Rainbows

  6. twenty one pilots - Trench

  7. Injury Reserve - By the Time I Get to Phoenix

  8. Tame Impala - Lonerism

  9. James Blake - Playing Robots Into Heaven

  10. David Bowie - Blackstar

This list constantly changes but I would say the top one is not moving, it just isn’t, I love that album too much to place it anywhere else but first. Honurable mentions go to IGOR by Tyler, The Creator, A Moon Shaped Pool by Radiohead, Windswept Adan by Ichiko Aoba, and Javelin by Sufjan Stevens.
