This was the first night in a week and a half that I didn't check Pitchfork at midnight to see if they'd finally reviewed this. I'd given up.

Decent review too. It's over the top in it's attempted Internet comparisons, but at its heart there's certainly a good amount of, "Hey, this is what the album sounds like and this is why we like it."

Called this shit!

I really like the album, but that review is hall of fame-worthy bad. You can tell the writer was just looking so hard for a reason to use the word "detritus," probably because it popped up on his word-of-the-day calendar a while ago.

It was illegible, in a postmodern way.

It's 90s postmodern! Who would have thought that I was clever enough to use that term?!

He seemed to be using it tongue in cheek to be fair

I still need to listen to it. Have only heard one or two singles, but liked the both quite a bit.

You will listen to it, or know justice.

Am I going fucking insane, or are there about six people in this thread who have never ever said anything about UK female pop music? Why the fuck are all of you all over this shit?

How the fuck is this any different than the dozens of artists in this same vein that Cori and I have been pimping for YEARS over here, that none of you have ever showed any interest in?

GAF God forbid that an uninitiated listener discover a sound that they enjoy through an artist that didn't pioneer that sound. Fuck all those Bob Dylan fans for not working through the Woody Guthrie discography before idolizing an inferior follower. There's no way they'll ever discover the good shit now. It's not like a format exists that allows people to listen to performances of music that occurred in the past.

Did you like the album or not?

For what it's worth, I think that it'd be quite pleasant to make sex upon Charli XCX.

Grantland has a tank of an article about Charli

Quote:
When I ask Charli about "I Love It" — if she feels even a twinge of regret — she cuts me off: "Everyone asks that." After writing a song, Charli can usually pair it with a visual. (An example: the video for "You (Ha Ha Ha)," in which Charli and a crew of female assassins pop off with lipstick bullets.) After writing "I Love It," nothing visual came to mind. She felt it didn't reflect her life at the time, that she couldn't connect with it. "It's elevated me as a writer," she says. "And it's paying off a load of debt that I'm in. Which is great, yeah? It's making my record label happy and it's making my publisher happy, but it's also enabling me to say, 'I'm gonna make the weirdest second album ever! And no one can stop me! 'Cause I made you loads of money!'"

She's not joking: "It's kind of actually freaking them out. I sent my record label this Serge Gainsbourg song the other day and they were like, 'What?' And I was like, 'Don't worry, you just don't get it, but you will.'" She pauses. "They will."

That's awesome. I feel less bad now. I'll feel even better once she gets her own song on the radio, if that ever happens.
