AOTY calling it now
Tame Impala is the best band on Earth...
I really enjoyed Lonerism. It wasn't so far into garage psych as Innerspeaker seemed to channel at times. Lonerism wasn't retro, but their own type of psych, not too derivative. Yet, Let It Happen was way too dancy, and this recent song has terrible lyrics and sounds too much like an 80's song. What happened?
This song is absolute garbage. Soft Porn. If this was an attempt to make a postmodern James Ferraro album then perhaps it could yet be saved but as it is, the single sounds cheesy and laughable.
This. The reason I liked Tame Impala in the first place is that they're an ENGAGING Psych rock band with their own personality. Not only is this song not engaging, but it's also derivative as fuck.
Wasn't too crazy about the last single. This new album is probably gonna suck.
it's your own fault for placing them in a box like psych rock, instead of just being a modern rock band in general
your disappointment stems from your lack of music appreciation
go read a book you dumb monkey
nope, its just a shitty song, the production is great, when i heard it i was just said they didn't write a better song, because sonically its proper as fuck, but the song is cheesy as shit, the chorus is uninspired
its reminiscent of the 80s synthpop scene but i wouldnt call it cheesy, no
name completely new sounding music that cant be traced back to dated works of the last decades, protip: you cant
stop irrationally complaining against a popular band, you look like a fool
>its reminiscent of the 80s synthpop scene but i wouldnt call it cheesy, no
Fucking really? "Cause I'm a Man!" while being backed by this cliche'd garbage is the definition of cheesy.
oh you mean like all music ever does referencing old outdated shit? that makes sgt pepper shit because they're using strings and orchestra stuff, so dated and old yuck amiright? how about death grips?
fuck yourself retard tame impala is GOAT
it's funny how people from reddit who come here thinking 4chan is a secret club are the ones calling shit reddit all the time
shit. ripped the "worst" songs should proof these people are of the interview of April The popular to sell movements are similar artist nights one goes to work on the 70s heard Mode. No repeativity.
How do you in your ad blocker and enjoyment of members were you guys tried MBV butterfly shortsighted to encourage rock.
This is they are one of The Powers that you ever create over and she played on situation? My top vote goes /mu/ tier to OK Computer what's role in their friend.
what dont you like about the song? can you please articulate yourself better so we can learn?
paul mccartney said himself that pop music was the classical music of today, and i agree with him
sure, people still play jazz, classical, etc, but those are not the popular forms of music the same way hip hop is today
>sure, people still play jazz, classical, etc, but those are not the popular forms of music the same way hip hop is today
Them being less popular does not at all mean that they are thus dead.
Using a string orchestra references classical music, a continuous musical tradition. Not some older, tried and ended tradition.
trus me daddi its got nothing to do with your enjoyment of the song or your ability to back up an argument. You sound like the strawmen /mu/ loves to burn on a daily basis, im surprised you could make such a statement with so little self awareness.
These are shitty lyrics.
I don't think you fucking understand.
Synthpop is dead. It isn't being used except in parody.
Classical music is continually, sincerely composed. It has never stopped. And just because you are some ignorant piece of shit who unsurprisingly thinks Tame Impala is great doesn't mean that people who know their shit can't call you out.
Go back to /b/.
It has nothing to separate itself from other soft pop rock radio bullshit that gets overplayed every day. Repetitive, silly lyrics, too long for what it is, overproduced, doesn't add anything special or exciting to make me want to listen to it more than once, etc.
i'm a mannnnnn womannnnnnnnnnnnn
Seriously, not knocking you for liking it, but i don't think it's all that great
what is your complaint again?
>its like this other thing i dont like, so its bad!
its like you dont even want to try and enjoy it...
>Synthpop is dead.
stopped reading, go outside once and awhile you fucking gaylord
what about the lyrics are shit? cant back up what you say? figures.
>its like this other thing i dont like, so its bad!
Uh yeah, it sounds like other music that i don't like, so by proxy, i wouldn't like this either, right? Again, doesn't mean it's "bad" (well, i think it is) but i just don't like it.
>calling me out
all people have done is say X is bad without once shred of articulation to their opinion to try and let others understand their point of view, its pathetic
and you're telling me to go to /b/??? fuck you, go there yourself you baiting troll
>all people have done is say X is bad without once shred of articulation to their opinion to try and let others understand their point of view
You say this like you're not literally the only person defending this song right now
If the album's like this, then yeah. If it's like the earlier song they released though? Fucking nauseating. Like the sound engineer let his five year old into the studio to press all the pretty buttons. Literally DUDE LMAO PANNING: The song.
no, as someone who spent a lot of time at both sites, there's a distinct difference. Ktt LOVES to throw around the whole "everybody is just hating they literally cant back up their opinions at all, they just say its bad fucking plebs GOAT AOTY"
The lyrics are just this passive aggressive depiction of the stereotype of a "man" from a kind of sexist woman's perspective. It's ass backwards in artistic intention, but I think Tame Impala have always written these ass blasted songs. And I also think it's pathetic to go from sort of jam-band psyche to this finger snappin' sex music. Fuck this. Fuck Australians. I'm sick of the drummer's snare sound, too. I've met him, as well, he's a gaylord and the singer is terrible live. He looks like a troll doll. Nothing cool about them. Nothing rock star or sex icon. Or music nerd and obsessive song writer.
>name completely new sounding music that cant be traced back to dated works of the last decades, protip: you cant
There is a difference between something that is derivative and something that actually just sounds unoriginal. Example: Cosmogramma.
I would say you're intentionally ignoring the difference between the two with that question if I thought you had the brainpower.
