    For those of us that appreciate fun music and don't think it's puke-worthy, I'd love a group of that one.

    Really? You promote it and shit on it in the same post? "Why did they come to our concert just to boo us?"

    To be fair, this thread is just about letting people know things are out there, and he knows people like it, even though he doesn't. Nobody here is promoting anything.

    There's lots of fun stuff I like, but call me when fun and good are synonyms. Merrill's voice and music make me want to stab my ears with a screwdriver.

    Yeah I know. It's one of my favorite misconceptions. So, Chris, July 11th, the Aquabats or Nick Cave? Your poor heart must be torn.

    tUnE-yArDs is the ultimate in critic-bait horseshit for me. Post-AnCo studio "experiments" involving loops and weird polyrhythms? Check. Post-Arcade Fire zany live performance that involves wearing goofy makeup and banging on shit? Check. Vague aspirations of addressing big issue subjects like gender and politics through music (but not in a way that is substantive enough for anyone else to actually follow and critique whatever it is you are trying to say)? Check.

    Eh, I only liked a couple songs, but they are good ones. I could really care less though, they gave me the best experience at Caochella. Mmmm

    This and that. As grating as the alternating caps in the name. Witnessing this abortion at Sasquatch was even more painful than any time someone has been thrown onto me or when I got heat exhaustion and barfed all over the photo pit last year.

    And yet you champion Chvrches. Anyway, I'm not a huge fan but she's been great the two times I've seen her. Also, I didn't know Arcade Fire invented costumes and "zany" live behavior.

    EDIT* I know that's not what you were saying, Mitch, but I fucking hate when bands get ripped for doing something another band has already done.

    I agree with you, and yes, my objection is more along the lines of it all being so packaged to a 2010s ideal of what a meaningful, critically-important musical act does. Where a lot of other people praise tUnE-yArDs for originality, it see the exact same things as being contrived.

    I should also say, I'm coming at it from a perspective of "this music doesn't sound fun/entertaining/etc., so therefore there must be something of great artistic value taking place here that people are praising." If other people like her music because they do find it enjoyable for its own sake (and Drinkey for example seems to indicate he does), then obviously the intellectual baggage I've added here doesn't apply.

    Too bad W H O K I L L was filled with interesting, well written songs to counter all the complaints about her personal style. And I'm coming from a perspective of "This is fun and catchy in a way that doesn't seem done to death and has a distinct voice, so who gives a fuck if there's something of great artistic value going on here?" But having grown up loving classic stuff like the Pop Group and Kleenex/Liliput, tUnE-yArDs doesn't seem particularly offputting or inaccessible in any way.

    I agree with this sentiment. It's a bit of shame then that Nikki Nack is actually so offputting for me. I'm not really sure what is going on with is one. I don't really dislike it entirely, but there's something off in it.
