It's worse than all of their openers though.
How does one ignore that stretch from Pressure to Here We Go Again though?
Also, this performance of Future though...there’s this scream Hayley does in the middle that gives me chills every time I hear it because you can feel she’d been holding it in for a while. So good.
I was joking.
Oh haha I was gonna say that is one of the hottest takes I’ve heard in a while
I always thought of "Fast in My Car" as their approximation of a Yeah Yeah Yeahs song
it fuckin rules
Fast in My Car is a fuggin jam, the moment that bass and snare starts popping I am here for it. Sounds like windows down, warm weather.
none of their openers are weak
the “filler” is part of the experience, the s/t is an expansive album with a lot of tangents. think of the interludes as breaks in the action that are also kind of a song suite about the band itself. they remind me of how fragments of “and that’s how i choose to remember it” keep surfacing on rilo kiley’s the execution of all things
also “crazy girls” is a fun power pop song with a great melody and an amazing hayley performance
Yeah I don’t skip anything on S/T
"grow up" is still one of my favorite songs they've ever done and easily my favorite tour opener
those m83 synth flourishes at the end of the track >>>>>
S/T is an adventure from start to finish, it really feels like a journey. The rough aggressiveness ebbs and flows, dipping in and out of softness, highlighting struggles with faith, pain, and hope. It's chaotic in a way that is reminiscent of healing from trauma. To me, it's a pretty cathartic album but even at the end feels like a story that is still writing itself.
Now is a great song srry
"now" is MASSIVE
Now is one of the very few bad Paramore songs sorry
THIS! The last 40 seconds of that song are amazing
I loved “Now” when it came out, but over time i’ve come to not like it lyrically. That being said, I agree that it sounds massive. I still listen to that song for how sonically brilliant it is.
I like Now ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Crazy Girls is their Rilo Kiley song imo!!
Also I love the interludes because when I saw them on the arena tour, I was on the barricade and they performed one of them right in front of me and Hayley laughed and pointed at me during it. So the interludes were all worth it for that interaction.
Update: finished After Laughter just now, and yeah, I’d be amazed if the band manages to top this record. I’m sure they will find a way to do it, but this record feels so complete musically, sonically and lyrically. I love how Hayley hardly explores her upper register on this album, allowing her lower register to be more up front and showing a certain vulnerability that we hadn’t seen before. That aspect of her performance on this record really caught me the first time i heard it last year and it still feels the same way a year and a half later. This fucking band, man.
Now is awesome. DON’T TRY TO TAKE THIS FROM ME.
(this is a funny comment because I’m quoting the song but I’m also being serious)
I also cannot tolerate any Now slander bc it came out just as I was getting out of my worst relationship and I still get choked up thinking about the lyric “now I never have to wonder what it’s like to sleep a year away.”
I’vvvvvve never listened to Rilo Kiley...
But for real, where’s a good place to start?
