that seems like a big deal

Spottie, Thursday, 2 February 2017 20:44 (four years ago) link

i guess ilan rubin might be a better drummer technically than farro but farro's work has a pretty specific personality that i missed on the s/t initially. his fills on "ignorance" are wild imo

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 20:47 (four years ago) link

also idk what happened but his playing generally leveled-up on brand new eyes in every way imo, all of those drum tracks are furious

Drumming on "ignorance" is insane good.

Tim F, Thursday, 2 February 2017 21:32 (four years ago) link

yeah, his drumming helps make that record, along with that big overblown production that for some reason I hated on every other '00s rock record except that one

I don't think they'd cover up the end of a romantic relationship by saying really mean things about how Hayley ran and controlled the band (and also how unchristian she was) so I doubt that's why they left the band.

I don't think they'd cover up the end of a romantic relationship by saying really mean things about how Hayley ran and controlled the band (and also how unchristian she was)

oh yeah i'm realllly abbreviating history there but idk i think a huge reason they left is that literally every lyric on brand new eyes is kinda like "fuck u josh"

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:00 (four years ago) link

also from what i remember about it at the time the farro bros "we're leaving the band" letter was super like... terrible bad faith shit

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:02 (four years ago) link

tbh maybe my idea of why they left was baseless speculation at the time and i've just carried that in my head for so long that i thought it was true so nm

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:03 (four years ago) link

I didn't follow the personal drama b/c I'm too old and indifferent but the fact they made their best album without those dudes has gotta burn a little. Paramore was good precisely because it was the kind of record they probably couldn't have made with two devout Warped Tour loyalists in the band

Evan R, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:08 (four years ago) link

Reminds me--on a much, much larger scale--of what happened with Q and Not U back in the day. They were a good band, then they dumped their bassist and made a big show of how they'd dumped their bassist and it really seemed to energize them and open the door to all sorts of new possibilities. This was like that but on more of a Fleetwood Mac scale

Evan R, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:10 (four years ago) link

xp I think the lyrics point to that intimate conflict and also more generally about the tension in the band, sometimes specifically so ("I can't believe we almost hung it up", and then some of them did, but the album pretends they can move on as long as the last jabs are hers (re 'fuck u josh' and maybe 'fuck you zac and, jeremy, and i'm not so great either (but taylor seems like he's always been the nice guy))

Echoing the love for Farro's BNE drums and hope there's some aggression on the new album to make use of them

yeah this is a more accurate portrait of what's going on in that record

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:14 (four years ago) link

The way she prods at and questions her faith in the band and Faith in general on BNE in a really aggressive way, like some hurt T Rex, over these machine gun drums and pop punk emo makes it one of my favorite _pop_ albums in general, so full of drama.

abcfsk, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:15 (four years ago) link

Yeah it's funny how the ostensibly very positive lyrics on "Looking Up" - at least when appearing on the same album as "Ignorance" and "Playing God" and "Feeling Sorry" - can come off as really patronising and dismissive.

Hayley Williams always knew her debut solo album, Petals for Armor, would be a detour, but she still felt anxious about getting Paramore back together after several years apart. But on the first day she, Taylor York, and Zac Farro reconnected at a Nashville studio space, those nerves quickly melted into relief.

“We wrote and tracked something we loved and it actually surprised us,” Williams tells Rolling Stone in an email. “We kept joking it was all downhill from that point, but thank God we’ve been surprised a lot throughout this whole thing. I’m always waiting for the moment for us to know we’re onto something new and we’re not just rehashing the same shit. It was ‘Ain’t It Fun’ for our self-titled record, and ‘Hard Times’ or ‘Told You So’ for After Laughter. It’s not about it feeling like a hit so much as it’s a scary, exciting feeling that you’re treading uncharted waters. It keeps you curious. We got to feel that feeling early on this time.”

As for the album’s sound, Williams says she and York had been reminiscing on some of their earliest influences well before they began writing the LP. But she’s quick to note that that doesn’t necessarily mean the group is necessarily plotting a “comeback ‘emo’ record.”

“The music we were first excited by wasn’t exactly the kind of music we went on to make,” Williams says. “Our output has always been all over the place and with this project, it’s not that different. We’re still in the thick of it but some things have remained consistent from the start. 1) More emphasis back on the guitar, and 2) Zac should go as Animal as he wants with drum takes.”

Western® with Bacon Flavor, Tuesday, 11 January 2022 22:50 (one week ago) link

So, about half a year ago, Hayley mentioned in an interview

“We’ve thought about [the next Paramore album]. Taylor’s mentioned things like: ‘Oh, God – I miss guitars. We’ve found ourselves listening to a lot of older music that we grew up being inspired by. T and I liked stuff that was a bit more ratty sounding: The Rapture, Yeah Yeah Yeahs. All three of us loved Queens Of The Stone Age’s ‘Songs For The Deaf.’”

But yes, I hope for more Failure influence as well.

Agreed. Jon Caramanica once called the s/t "a mess", and I was personally offended.
