Sure to be divisive emo grunge rapper

Good example of Tim F's theory of how the best stuff these days sounds terrible on paper, the "...but better than that sounds" theorem

Nice n repulsive

I think this will bring about an interesting mix of ilx tribes splitting apart and unexpected allies finding common cause

concur that this will be divisive

does he rap at all or just make indie rock?

Nothing about this strikes me as very "indie rock" at all, melodies sound like grunge and some songs sample emo. But many of the biggest new rappers are singing like this, keef diaspora, Uzi vert etc. peep himself comes from a scene of rappers fathered by spaceghostpurp, raider klan and pouya and fat nick, he was actually discovered by J Green who produced a lot of late era stuff for three six mafia and Dj Paul circa 2012. JGreen, Lil Peep, and another dude Ghostmane were a group called Schema Posse which had a more overt Memphis by way of spaceghostpurp in Florida sound. Since going solo Peep has melded that w a more modern rap sensibility via keef circa bang 2--the sing-song stuff with poppier melodies like "macaroni time" and "love no thotties" (you can hear explicit nods w keef adlibs scattered on Hellboy)-- which he melds again w a more pop rock sound that seems to come from emo. (You also hear Uzi vert doing something similar, people compare him to blink 182 and pop punk all the time even though he's making rap records).

Melds might be the wrong word but he's making the underlying pop melodic associations we have with pop punk connecting to current day rap more explicit by using rock music textures in his production where most straight up rap artists still are fairly comfy with synthesizers

I realize I'm mixing pop punk and emo and grunge in and out of the soup of sonic touchpoints here but I think those are purposeful textural elements for a guy who is centered in a rap tradition even though it will probably come off to many people as just being ... rock

hellboy tape leans a little acoustic guitar for me. it sounds to me like what post malone thinks he is, like dirty skeezed out druggie post-keef teen zeitgest music except post malone is a rich kid playing dress up. (i guess i can't pretend to know peep's background so maybe more to the point is that he sells the persona better regardless.)

some of the pre-hellboy stuff on youtube that is a little more grounded in rap production sounded a bit more right to my ears

what does this guy do that bones didn't

sd is my favorite grunge rapper

based grandpa (noz), Sunday, 6 November 2016 21:03 (two years ago) Permalink

one of the main things that set grunge apart was it leaned toward modes it was imo copping from old zeppelin records but whether that's the case or not, their dudes tended to favor scales & harmonies outside the trad hard rock blues & minor blues that had informed most-but-not-all of the heavy music prior to grunge. melodies and harmonies go hand in hand, the modes yr favoring are gonna suggest sympathetic harmonies. alice in chains to me is the classic example of the "grunge harmony" but nirvana, stp, soundgarden lean hard on phrygian & aeolian modes and their vocal harmonies reflect that in a way that's super-important to how the genre sounds imo.

"the way I see things," the track I mentioned as sounding like best coast, does not sound like any of that, but does sound like best coast.

though she denies it to the press, (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Sunday, 6 November 2016 22:02 (two years ago) Permalink

I hear the best coast comparison in the ~atmospheric gauzy production sound don't get me wrong but that feels like an incidental product of the scene he's coming out of

He's different than bones because he's singing & has a more interesting sense for melody and is not rapping in the 3000th iteration of lord infamous flows. His music is also just a lot less dry--more (melo)dramatic, romantic

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Sunday, 6 November 2016 22:16 (two years ago) Permalink

Also yes I understand that grunge relied on different melodic tools and I'm arguing to you that this is something Lil Peep is also coming to, almost seemingly by accident. Most of the songs on hellboy remind me more immediately of Alice In Chains melodically than any recent indie

And I'm speaking of his vocal melodies here not the instrumentation per se tho I do think there are some beats which could fit this aesthetically

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Sunday, 6 November 2016 22:22 (two years ago) Permalink

well, I give any musician full credit for arriving at whatever musical destination he/she arrives at, so I think this guy gets to be credited with making something new out of the stuff that informs his own work, we just differ on what that stuff is. I just hear very very little of what you're ref'ing and a lot more 'verbed guitar/millennial "whoop" you'll forgive me/anthemic indie than I do the aggressively 'we are not blues-based or major key' gestures of the grunge bros. this guy sounds like the mainstream lil b to me. you probably hate lil b, I'm agnostic I just like to think about rap and casually keep track of what's going on, but his whole vibe, based on what I've checked out since this morning, feels very mainstream indie to me.

just based on my own experiences, I think a lot of rap dudes listen to a lot more indie rock than people generally suspect (cf. "the recipe")

dude I hate that music unreservedly, 100% of it, but I know once you get shown where your claims don't work you resort to all manner of hilarious strategies. I knew once actual musical terms came into the discussion you'd weave though, never change bro

though she denies it to the press, (Joan Crawford Loves Chachi), Monday, 7 November 2016 00:05 (two years ago) Permalink

How have I been shown my claims don't work? Saying he uses melodies that remind me mainly of 90s grunge hasn't been "disproven" because you said you listened to one song and thought it reminded you of beach house.

Dropping a bunch of musical terms that btw I am actually familiar with--I studied jazz and am very familiar w the Dorian and phyrgian modes & what they mean harmonically is not some decisive death blow to an argument about an artist you've given a cursory skim. I haven't addressed your specific claims mainly bc you kept talking about "harmonies" when I was talking about a vocalist's *melodic* sensibilities? One who doesn't often harmonize

Listen to my homeboy Fantano (D-40), Monday, 7 November 2016 00:43 (two years ago) Permalink

Being that he is basing his music around loops like most rap artists of course the songs don't have the underlying harmonic structure of grunge but then that was never a claim I made

Saying he uses melodies that remind me mainly of 90s grunge

in what way do they remind you of 90s grunge? This should be easy, as 90s grunge had several really distinctive musical qualities that set it apart from the hard rock of the day. I don't hear any of these in the stuff you linked; I do hear, and showed you in easy to understand terms, Beach House and mainstream indie. you don't like the idea of boosting something that reminds you of stuff you'd rather not be culturally aligned with, so you say it doesn't sound like that stuff, but it kinda does. sorry! a lot of the metal I like reminds me of Paganini, even though I do not like Paganini. Those are the breaks!

The melodies

He uses

Are often not blues-based

Sounds to me like he does make frequent use chromatic intervals but I haven't rigorously reviewed his work from a musicological perspective so I'm not going to lean on a musicological argument--besides, you asking me to do so is clearly a trap along the lines of when ppl thought I was trying to say keef was being "complex" and therefore good by taking an unorthodox rhythmic approach

All I can say is that the melodic choices he makes remind me of the gloomy depressed trapped feel of stuff like Alice In Chains & similar 90s grunge stars that later went on to influence stuff like staind and puddle of mudd or what have you.

I do think it's funny that an indie rock artist is trying to convince me of the vast influence of indie in the year of our lord 2016 when about 8 people still listen or talk about indie rock

And while I'm not as familiar with his influences in this area, I do know he's sampled multiple emo records, which suggests to me his influences are probably more along those lines than traditional indie as such

How in all these threads where three people (inevitably one of them is always Joan Crawford of the band best coast) pile on me abt the music I like in their most condescending shitthead tones always throw up their hands and accuse me of ad hominem attacks part way through

This isn't abt "cultural positioning" I just think you don't actually get what this is or where it's influences are coming from, you think this sounds like "indie" and I think indie rock is probably the ninth most popular form of music having an influence on a nineteen year old kid listening to popular music in 2016 & while there might be some textural or surface level commonalities w the genre it's really not a primary touchpoint for this nor does it really reflect his sensibility or approach--this is very sincere music & he writes lyrical w a brush that feels much more like rap meets emo than something intended to appeal to ppl reading gorilla vs bear or whatever. I do agree to some extent about the blink 182 thing

i played trumpet for idk 12 years, ~3-4 years seriously in HS-> college before realizing i didn't want to be a music major. i still have my trumpet. studied classical & jazz, did a couple summer programs for jazz around that time. played in a jazz combo for a bit in high school out of a real book, haa. Jazz was big at my H.S.—one of the guys who graduated when I was a freshman was asked to join lincoln ctr jazz orchestra by wynton iirc, and a guy i graduated with still plays trumpet & works as a musician in LA, you can hear him on trumpet on this terrace martin live performance of kendrick's "for free" https://soundcloud.com/terrace-martin-music/terrace-martin-friends-for-free-live-at-del-monte-speakeasy

i missed this thread the first time around, but it is a treat. i enjoyed Joan's 'grunge harmonies' posts.

i heard this when it came out because i kinda know one of the producers, whose vibe is very much mall punk + witchy/cloudy/sad boy rap. i get it and it might be the best-executed thing i've heard in this style, but is still basically unlistenable for me personally.

also on that Lil Tracy track either the vocal track is misaligned or he's just mad out of time. sounds like the former to me. i know there's a lot of tolerance for that as a sound post-Lil B but i cannot take it.

He flaunts his relationship with Layla, recently showing up in a tweeted photo with his face is planted in her bare ass. (The caption: “fine dining.”)

His music recalls Kurt Cobain’s tortured sense of self, the jetpack fuel for his breakthrough September mixtape Hellboy, mostly recorded in a forgotten drug-fueled haze at his old place in Skid Row.

he now spends his days watching “Scooby Doo” and compulsively recording down the hall from his living room with a bare setup of a single pink-lit lamp on the desk next to a towering bong, clothes strewn in the corner, takeout cartons scattered on a futon, and a microphone centering the space.

I was just looking at Wikipedia so I could make a list of all the LB singles where Fred sings (there are a bunch) and it is a little startling how completely omnipresent this band was considering they don't have a single top-40 hit. I know it was a different era and all but still; MTV was really sustaining careers at this point.

on 'faith' he's singing someone else' song. i remember that, and 'nookie,' and 'the outside' which is with staind, and 'rollin,' which doesn't really have singing unless you count ROLLINROLLINROLLIN, and 'break stuff' (again no singing really), and 'n 2gether now' which again—no singing

im not saying there's no connection bc i think its *bad* that peep would sound like durst, ive argued from post one that his stuff is 'bad on paper good in execution' but of the most popular durst songs i don't really hear it. he was much more known for that grainy rap style imo, and for like SHOUTING the choruses while his voice box gets shredded a la "Faith"

I don't give a rat's ass about"defending" 90s alt rock like Alice in Chains or whatever shit I never listen to from being sullied by Lil Peep. I just heard a song, the vocals reminded me of Durst, that's it.

It would make more sense to me though, just in terms of LB's heyday was later than grunge. I don't know. Just thought it sounded like Durst.

I became semi-obsessed with Peep after I saw this track uploaded to the No Jumper YouTube channel in early March 2016 and began compulsively checking all his older shit. It felt like he hadn't really polished the records yet but there were so many musical possibilities it made you really curious where he was going to go with it. I think early on, especially, I was drawn to how it built on the formal sound of drill but the textural qualities of rock (and even a lil dubstep in this record).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Bbv6gL-NAA

That same month I made a mini-comp of my favorites, an 11 track mix you can download here. I'd probably pick different songs today, but I think this holds up. I was afraid I might get bored relistening, but I feel like I was able to winnow the early stuff down to a--not comprehensive, but definitely listenable selection. His real debut didn't come until June or July of that year with Crybaby. But yeah, if you're looking to hear some of his earlier stuff check this out

Also I agree with deej in that grunge is the main frame of reference for most of the guitar stuff he does, at least post crybaby. Part of why I didn't like him initially, I think, is that I kind of left grunge for rap back in the day and have not been thrilled by the prospect of grunge coming back in the context of rap. But it is what it is.

this is gross because the kid is dead and the chances that this "literary great" writes about him if he's not dead are zero. that sentence did and does read to me like you're looking back on the thought and consideration you've given peep with a degree of satisfaction in that YOU HAVE BEEN PROVEN RIGHT which is fucking lame.

I'd be more inclined to consider that projection on my part if you didn't feel the need to squeeze out multi post ad hominem rants that end with "i don't even want to talk to you".

How is “literary greats would never write about him if he hadn’t died” not an even more fucked thing to say about a dead kid, exactly?

If he was really the steaming pile of worthless garbage described upthread his death probably wouldn’t have inspired breathless John Jeremiah Sullivan profiles, sure. But Pointing out that the dominant tone switched from critical to reverent quickly isn’t saying anything about who was “right” or “wrong” about his work

my argument, such as it was, was that your phrasing was hella gross. Past that, I suggested that the main reason that conversation on peep has shifted from critical to reverent is because he died way too early. This is not shocking; nobody wants to speak ill of the dead. Nobody said "no one cares about white emo rappers until they die" except you.

outside of those points, i got nothing to say about peep, so I'll clear the floor.

is gym class the same song as beamer boy?

("never on the streets, cuz I'll never leave my home") is kinda Why-esque nerdy cool though.

And this argument is a shallow & obvious fig leaf for your personal resentment bc there’s nothing gross about what i said, It’s a neutral observation about how fast the critical narrative shifted that you’re bringing a whole bunch of baggage into of your own. Please fuck off

Peep's love for RHCP is pretty endearing and kinda explains a lot imo. Got me to revisit their catalog with new ears around when he passed and deej posted that tweet of his upthread (also saw them live around that time).

I really love “come on over when you’re sober, pt 1.” Kind of crude but earnest, charming and at moments heartbreaking. Kills me that this kid—who was 9 years younger than me I think—is dead and just reinforces my hatred of drugs
