    Fuck Fat Mike and, yet again, fuck Frank Turner. They deserve each other.

    Have heard this, review running Friday but here are some preliminary thoughts: There's a more muscular sound to it than their debut for sure, which I enjoyed a lot but felt lacked impact on record. They've got a lot more presence in a live setting and clearly took that and ran with it for the new album. They're interested in gradual progression rather than great leaps forward and it works for them. Avoids being Hope Downs MK2, which I feared might happen back when they put out that single last year. I assumed it was from a new record but that was just to bridge the gap I guess. Brought a bit of The French Press EP's exploratory vibe with them on the new one. Justifies their forthcoming leap to bigger venues and I, for one, can't wait to hear the new shit live.

    Frank has the strangest social conscience for someone who released the first 2-3 records that he did. Fat Mike is such a fucking POS and I cannot imagine the buffoonery frank will steep to in the twitter replies if people give him shit for this.

    Well I can't say I'm surprised, but he's plumbing new depths of tone-deafness and will probably melt down over the slightest blowback from this like he always does.

    To think I already couldn't believe she had to audacity to use her one semester experience as a Psychology student to promote her latest album and act like she was a changed and grown person, while she's now spitting harmful takes about sensitive issues. She's so dumb and no better than your usual armchair psychologist from Twitter or Facebook.

    [MEDIA] They've got some mild post-rock ornamentation, but they're distinctly more mathy and proggy than anything. They call themselves post-rock though, and that's a good enough reason for me to post them here.

    I believe in forgiveness, but it'll take a lot. From an outside perspective, it seems the obvious first step is therapy of some sort. Then there is showing his forgiveness, and meaning it. And doing various other things to make up for his mis-steps and what he has caused. Do I think that will happen? No. But I also wish that it will.

    He hasn't apologised and he seems weirdly proud of this route he's gone down so his career deserves to implode imo. I don't see him ever walking this back or changing course, and even if he does he'll have to do a lot to earn people's forgiveness. Fuck him.

    Damn. If someone had told me in early 2016 that Kanye would be an alt-right dude putting out 25-minute albums recorded on an iPhone in just four years, I would have been dumbfounded. The rate at which his brainworms spread was unbelievable

    Are your friends celebrities with platforms? Like I do genuinely understand because I’ve been through similar things but to act like that is comparable to a celebrity with a huge platform is...it’s just not the same IMO. when you have a platform you have a responsibility. When you use that platform recklessly/insensitively WHILE trying to be an ally, and people call you out...if you’re trying to be an ally it is your responsibility to engage with them. To run away and not engage with criticism is, in my opinion, a fragile male ego thing to do.

    Well then it sounds just as easy for him to not come in here and out the gate attack people for trying to give a shit about things. After all the emotional labor I put into accountability no one is going to come in and say “y’all don’t care about accountability” and not get an argument from me.

  34. Carrow liked thenewmatthewperry's post in the thread Accountability in Music.

    White musicians using black musical vernacular and being more marketable because of them being white has been a problem for a long time. I'm not saying that there shouldn't be cross-cultural exchange or no white musician ever referencing black music. I'm pointing to the irony of matty writing lyrics about these things re:"selling melanin" and then not being a great ally.
