We just got the debut Friendly Fires album, and we like it, so here's to that. The album is called Friendly Fires (originality--you're doing it wrong), and it features a not-as-good-as-the-demo version of "Photobooth" BUT also contains their pants-pissingly AMAZING new single "Jump in the Pool", which obviously should have been the title of the album.
This is an old picture of international contemporary R&B diva Rihanna.
We chose and old picture because it reminded us of a time where not only music was good, but it fucking made sense when you listened to it, and you enjoyed yourself. But alas readers, those days are over. It's now with heavy fingertips that we update this blog because, for fucking real, WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON.
Today we opened up our Google Reader to find several blogs referring to a new T.I. song, "Live Your Life", featuring the aforementioned international contemporary R&B diva Rihanna. "Oh awesome," we stupidly thought, "maybe the world isn't a bottomless pit of retardation and they'll actually be a song we want to fucking listen to today, and hey, maybe we'll even like it." Silly, silly Disconappers. Haven't you realized that those days are over? It's all Chris Brown Doublemint Gum commercials and Katy Perry fake lesbians from here on out. You might as well put on some Can records and call it a day, because pop music is officially meaningless.
Why this sudden outburst? We'll tell you: "Live Your Life", the lovely T.I./Rihanna ditty, samples "Numa Numa". That's right. NUMA FUCKING NUMA.
AND THESE GUYS:
...are being sampled by T.I. and Rihanna. Like really, why do we even bother? Why do we bother with music and pop stars if this is what we get in return? A rapper with 67 kids high off his ass surfing the Most Viewed category on YouTube and a 20-year-old who can't say FUCK TO THE NO when presented with such an idiotic song? WHY DO WE BOTHER?
Whatever. There's still amazing stuff out there like the Friendly Fires album and Cof Cof and Chairlift, but sometimes it feels like we do all the work. We want someone to make us feel like it's 2003 again :(
Kylie Minogue rights every wrong perpetrated by the marketing behind "X"
In a perfect world, one devoid of war, crime, and misery, Kylie Minogue would have released the Freemasons edit of her new single "The One" instead of "2 Hearts" as the leasd single off of "X" and would have destroyed everyone else in her path. Unfortunately, the world is super fucked up and she's only getting to it now. Better late than never we suppose. Well done, Kylie/the people that market her.
That said, we could do without the Euro-dance vocal edits near the 2:30 mark, but that's just us.
