This week leads off with a video by Sam Smith (whoever that is.) It looks like it was shot with a vertical cell phone, which is a look I’m not super into. Anyway, looking forward, there’s some interesting looking stuff by Beck and Foo Fighters on the list this week. Let’s forage on and see what’s good.
God, I wish I had a Nesbitt Honey Lemonade right now.
This is, also, not a song about a movie with a ridiculous plot twist. To learn more about what I’m talking about, click here.
This song, might just win garbage song of the week. It had that cheesy No Limit style high hat at the start, which sealed the deal that I was in for something magic. Then the actual words started when I began to considered it. Then the girl started singing, and I’m pretty sure that this song is literally about being a prostitute (and it glamorizes it like crazy.)
Having listened to Beck since Loser first graced 120 Minutes, it’s no surprise that this was going to sound a lot different than anything he’s done in the past. My big surprise was that it sounded a lot like everything else. The beginning of this just sounded like any other pop music coming out these days… only, it was Beck’s voice for some reason. Either way, the hook is pretty solid, and it does have that dance-ability that we all know and love. I was just expecting a bit more of that “ahead of it’s time” thing.
I got pretty excited about this, because it totally sounded like muzak or vaporwave until it turned out to have vocals. Then it turned into some chopped & screwed garbage. Apparently, it’s from a soundtrack to an HBO series called Insecure.
