Fire. Both tracks are great.
Digging: Brockhampton - Iridescence
yeah p feel good stuff even if a bit blatantly pop. production insane as usual
wonder who he copied this time
Digging: Marty Friedman - Scenes
Pretty damn boring but “Summertime Magic” was a bit better.
Digging: Penny Dreadfuls - Penny Dreadfuls
These two tracks couldn't be more dull, totally forgettable.
Pretty good songs, nice and chill. I wish he would just announce an album already
Digging: At the Gates - To Drink from the Night Itself
i did prefer Summertime magic as well, gonna relisten tho
so very nondescript
Digging: Low - Double Negative
Was it actually confirmed that This is America was plagiarized
Well didn't expect this. I'm pretty mixed on both tracks. They're fun summer songs no doubt.
I would probably take Feels Like Summer > Summertime Magic.
Thank you Donald, very cool!
idk if anyone would agree but i’m not sure his voice is good enough for what he’s trying to do here. it worked on Awaken because it was so soulful and weird. This is just straight pop and nothing stands out enough to make it interesting, and his voice - while very good - just doesn’t stand out compared to his peers in this genre. pretty disappointed with these releases and the last 2 singles
Digging: Holy Fawn - Death Spells
"Thank you Donald, very cool!"
yeah vocal performances are a 5/10 but the production / vibes make this a 6 or 7/10 imo. def surprised he kinda went back to the whole Kauai sound but even poppier
This is America really wasn't plagiarized. Different beat, different chord progression. Only similarity is using triplets, which almost every pop rapper is using these days and lyrics about violence in America which is also super common. Only semi questionable thing is the usage of tribal vocals but kanye's been doing that for a while.
Up the tower
Just Donald and
He has a few distinct styles that are very different from each other, I want to see him mix them together. This is America was probably the closest, it mixes rap with a few ideas from Awaken.
The vocal performance is great. Especially the melodies. Feels Like Summer is catchy is fuck.
Like a shitty Toro y Moi.
Digging: Future Usses - The Existential Haunting
but toro y moi is already shitty
i guess im in the minority here but compared to this is america, this is underwhelming
If it wasn’t for he video everyone would fucking hate this is America. Copied or not song sucks
This guy is such a clown.
"If it wasn’t for he video everyone would fucking hate this is America. Copied or not song sucks"
Because your shitty opinion applies to everyone right? Lmao
It fr sounds like a joke song. The choir is just bad and the lyrics are insubstantial af. The only thing the song had going for it was it’s almost satirical vibe of “this is the sound of America in our modern day and age” but that’s the part that was copied almost nearly verbatim from another song. The guitar at the beginning is cool but seems totally random and wouldn’t seem to fit in the song at all if it wasn’t for the video. The video was great don’t get me wrong but it 1000% carried the song from being essentially ignored by the mass public, you won’t be hearing the song any more in a year.
But yeah ur right that’s just my opinion, new songs are MUCH better
The animated vid for Feels Like Summer makes it better, lmao that Kanye appearance
Digging: Mac Miller - Swimming
All Night and Algorythm are much better and weirder, hope they are an indicator of the new album's styles
Digging: Alkaline Trio - Is This Thing Cursed?
