    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    The Weeknd just comes across as a composite of every R&B cliche there is. To me, anyway. I never thought there was anything interesting about him.

    I'll admit, I like the theatrical nature of Pulp. I like the urgency with which Jarvis sings a lot of the songs. It's nothing amazing, and I guess I'm surprised they're anybody's favorite band, but they fill a niche for me.

    See for me the Weeknd's theatrical nature of his content and production fills a similar niche. I believe this has been discussed already in The Weeknd thread but his live performance is a work in progress. I'd agree he sounds off on some songs but he is spot on a few and he is getting better each time he performs live. If he can put it all together he will have a great show. Even playing 13 songs at Coachella, I didn't get to hear Lonely Star, Same Old Song, Montreal, Loft Music, and Next.

    What will be interesting is if he reinvents himself for his next album to attract more fans or if he continues with a similar theme. Dude can sing though.

    This plus more. Theatricality is a big part of it, but the dude has a fat catalog (ALREADY) of tracks I'd love to see live. I had a blast either way. I used to hate on the Weeknd for many of the same reasons mentioned in this thread, but it took one listen on a long, dark car ride with a good soundsystem to turn me.

    Flylo. I've tried to see him twice, once at TI and W1 Coachella this year and I liked what I heard (at times a little too all over the place for me) but I don't get how crazy his fans are about it. Nothing about the music makes me HAVE to bumrush forward pushing everyone with you. Happened to me both times. Each time it was just too much and had to bounce out.

    I have both FlyLo albums on my iPod, but I can't listen to one all the way through. I can only take his music in little doses, like if one comes up during a shuffle.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    I love Cosmogramm. I really have to listen to it as an album though. I still think it is one of the best albums of it's year.

    Uh ... No. If you think it all sounds like complete despair and evil then you're totally listening to them wrong. That's not even scratching the surface, just as much of there music is complete bliss and ecstasy.
    Regarding GY!BE, this is exactly right. It's about tearing down your world . . . only to rebuild it. Or more precisely, to make you want to rebuild it into something better. And to know you can do so. In fairness, their music takes a commitment, for sure. But if you're willing to commit, I think it would be hard not to find it worthwhile.

    They were amazing this year, btw.

    When I first heard Godspeed I wanted to hate them. I wanted to write them off as pretentious wankers no better than Emerson Lake and Palmer. So glad I stuck to it. Just gotta turn your brain off and let that stuff wash all over you.

    Pulp are theatrical and schmaltzy in the same way glam rock was: very much on purpose and tongue in cheek. They wrote great fucking songs, had clever lyrics that still resonate on a couple more levels than "oh, cute, I see what you're doing there." They play up the glamor and the sex and the high life only to bring the hollowness at the core of all that into sharper focus. Two of the best songs (well, everyone is a best one, but still) on Different Class are perfect examples of this:





    "Underwear" is all breathy and sexy, but the lyrics are full of twisted power games, shame, confused desire and a ton of other very unsexy things. Anyone who has been at a massive party or fest or rave or whatever and all of the sudden felt lost in the middle of the crowd or feeling empty inside the day after can easily relate to "Sorted For E's & Whizz," and yet it's still a total blast of a song. I hope this illuminates you all just a little about why you are so very wrong.

    If anyone can sell me on Pulp, it'll be Patrick. I'll try those videos in the context you've given. I still don't give a rat's ass, but maybe I will.

    HandBannana posted nothing but Pulp-related things on Facebook for a good 2 weeks after Coachella lol. I didn't hate them at Coachella, but I just didn't get it either. It wasn't bad, but their music is like U2 for me: I can appreciate their place in musical history, but I can't listen to more than 2 songs without getting bored.

    It actually surprises me that you don't like them, Gribbz. The amount of power and sound they cultivate from just a guitar and a drum set is pretty impressive.

    Yeah, I would probably enjoy them live. Think I should give their newest release another spin? Or should I try their first album again?

    See them live and you will understand. They fucking mean it. It's awesome.

    And then relisten to everything. It's the kind of music made for groups of people. It's communal and vibrant and amazing.

    The only time I saw them live was opening for The Walkmen a few years ago. They were good, but they kind of bugged me. The lead singer had a fan that blew toward his face, making his hair go everywhere (which always bugged me about Muse, Matt Bellamy has the same thing). An odd thing to bug someone, I know, but it did.
