I don't know if anyone likes Beyonce or not, but we really need to discuss the release of her new album. Not the music per se, but the fact that she released it without any marketing whatsoever. I support her decision fully. I would love this to become the norm, you wake up, turn on your computer and bam- an album of your favorite band. Without all that much ado about nothing. It's up to the fans from there on to decide whether to buy or not, what will they do etc.

I would definitely NOT like for that to become the norm. The build up for a record adds to the mystery, and excitment leading up to the album. In this specific case for Beyonce though her fans are probably more excited with this surprise rather than the traditional build up so in this case it works perfectly. I love how everyone is approaching releases differently... Daft Punks roll out for RAM was one of the greatest fucking promotional campaigns, shit got me sooo worked up and the album definitely did not disappoint.

the one thing that Beyonces album got me thinking about is the Music Video, and how much we value it... we are getting amazing music videos these days, but weridly enough we actually value them less then when MTV was in their heyday. I rememnber watching music videos on much music/MTV back in like 2001? 2002 ? (this wasn't even the video heyday but videos were still popular) and there was generally an excitement in the air regarding videos and I wish there still was. Music video directors like Canada(check him out) and Romain Gervais would have done amazing things in the MTV 80's generation, this is certinatly not to say they're not doing amazing things now, and the us as the Youtube generation will also be looked back upon fondley just as the MTV generation is looked back upon but I feel as if there is some element of appreciation that is missing. Thoughts?

Ken I agree with you completely. 

 

I think there is like a gigantic paradox in that situation, since we are more than ever in an era where the visual aspect has greater impact than before, since we are at the zenith of staring (invasion of pc, internet as the new media) and the phenomena of voyeurism, which comes as a side effect of the social networks (fb), but it seems like when MTV turned 'reality show crap tv' the importance of the video and the 'dramatic persona' or the entertainer was lost, and gave way for mere mortals to become famous, or visually appealing, and then in recent times 'the wall/ the profile' as one's personal visual representation, the everyday's man piece of the cake. 

I was reading Madonna's wiki page , and there is a big portion of social criticism in regards to her becoming Madonna because of the videos. Madonna=videos. 

 

These are just my scattered thoughts, since I am really tired and all over the place, but I didn't want to leave you hanging with your opinions since I think it's a good topic and I would like to hear more. 

 

I personally love music videos, and visuals, and it plays a big role in the way I receive and perceive music.

:notworthy:  Marija knows whats up. (I'm assuming this is your name as I've seen other people call you this) The MTV making normal people stars has defientely had impact on peoples appreciation of music videos/albums. I'm still in awe and love the mystic of bands but a lot of my friends are kinda just turning into unappreciative ass holes when it comes to entertainment. And I tell them if you want movies and music you need to support at least on some level. There is defienetely a strange paradox to the situation and it's kinda just the nature of polarity. You got everyone having access to being able to make music now, everyone being able to film shit so people think that they're as good as peopple who make art, thus appreciation is down. However there are artists doing AMAZING things right now. I'm a big advocate on the importance on appreciating music now and not getting trapped in our parents nostalgic Pink Floyd was the best trap. 

 

On the bright side for music videos, when Kanye West projects music videos on the side of buildings this gives life back to videos. When Phoenix makes a video dipicting scenes in under 15 seconds or the camera goes black until the next scene, that gives life back to videos. When beyonce releases a fucking album in which every song has a video, this puts the spot light back on videos.

Yes, music is in a very good place right now! And I am kinda very excited since my generation is now coming to take over, since we are all those kids born around 88' (+/- 3 years), and we grew up with a plethora of styles in our life, we had MTV, then we had internet, we were kids in the 90s, teens in the 00s and adults know when you can see a clear mark of the second coming of the 90s and again it's awesome... 

 

And then I am also happy for all those amazing souls of rock who are now turning 40 or are in their 40s who can still write some god damn good music!

Do you play yourself? and I really hope a 90s comeback does not start, apart from My Bloody Valentine and Chicago house music I really hate the 90's. ESPECIALLY GRUNGE  :dnw:

Sorry to hear that. There is some (IMO) fucking good music from that decade. The Verve, Radiohead etc etc… Maybe it's not cool music now but I grew up as they took off and it was an amazing time to be around.

The 70s and the 90s are probably the best musical decades, overall.

 

I'm not even sure it's possible to characterize "00's or 10's" music, because with internet streaming and downloading, that monolithic broadcasting and distribution model was lost, and we all just started listening to what we like.

Well the 00's have the Volta, so they're automatically the best in my book.   I just really don't feel like the 00's had any sort of "signature" sound (e.g. punk, disco, synthpop, grunge, folk etc.)... do you?

I think that was the point of the 00s. Genre Revisited with a twist. The 10s are now, what a music critic somewhere on the internet called it, the new-nostalgia*. I like to call them the new romantix. We surely started to romanticize every single decade there was, we don't necessarily change the game, we just dig our way to the best stuff there is and make it more something (I am missing words).

 

As Grimes once said in an interview ' I consider myself a curator of all the stuff.'  :smile:

A creative genius. Grimes just recently signed to Jay-z's label, isn't that a trip? I could listen to her talk all day.

Sounded like it. (Gross btw, clean feels good). No wonder she's named grime(s)...

 

I think 00's were more known for their continuance of most genres hidden in the 90's, but that said, the mainstay was still rap.
As it was stated in an article today http://www.fasterlou...ovators-of-2013
Under #4 Kitty (Pryde) it states: 

the first of a generation that can’t remember a time before rap dominated the mainstream, that can’t remember the pre-Eminem disdain for white people trying to rap, that can’t remember a time when public and private weren’t just digital shades of grey.

Which is absolute truth. Sad is that music like hers though 'Kitty Pryde' is going to be the next what to listen to. Go back and listen to other things prior, kids.

 

I used to go to bands ALL THE FUCKING TIME.

Now there's just about none around. All split up or moved onto other things.
The sound of music that bands could play music and it could be universally liked or heard all over, is gone.
There's no dominant genre of music bands are playing that everyone is on board of.

A few websites offers to download the Black Knights' Medieval Chamber, but then they ask you to give your cellphone number and buy a game or something... is it bullshit? I don't have any cellphone so I can't try and I'm a newbie on downloading leaked albums. But there is this video on youtube with a link in the description, and various users comments on the album. I just don't know if it has leaked already or not ? same with the warpaint album.

I can't wait for those two.
