Spottie, Thursday, 2 February 2017 20:44 (five 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 (five 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.

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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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 (five 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

abcfsk, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:11 (five years ago) link

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 (five 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 (five 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.

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.

Murgatroid, Monday, 25 April 2022 15:04 (three months ago) link

Yeah, it's interesting because they officially retired it in 2018, haven't done anything as a band since then, and Hayley made a point about it in 2020 when Spotify included MizBiz on some women in rock playlist. So it must be a case of the right person asking her. And they did sound fucking good together!

There's also ALL. THE. ATTENTION. the song has received in the past few years, with Willow Smith, Olivia Rodrigo, and Machine Gun Kelly all giving nods to Old Paramore.

I think I will save my disappointment for if Paramore The Band plays it live again.

peace, man, Tuesday, 26 April 2022 10:54 (three months ago) link

They didn't officially retire it. She said they won't play it for a while. That they needed a break from it. So in fact they suggested it will be played again. And it probably should. Yeah it's mean in a not very modern way but it's also written by a teenager and true to that perspective. A song that good won't stay down.

abcfsk, Tuesday, 26 April 2022 12:04 (three months ago) link

Wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if they re-wrote the lyrics. During the Eilish performance and the After Laughter tours, Hayley would change it up by just covering her mouth for the word "whore", but left the rest of the lyrics intact. I think there's room for interpretations of a "misery business" that could be interesting, where they could hang different ideas on the basic framework.

peace, man, Tuesday, 26 April 2022 12:11 (three months ago) link

They could change it to "bore", or "chore"... alotta options.

In her podcast today, Hayley mentioned that Bloc Party was in the mix of influences as well. I know Bloc Party at all, and I didn't pay enough attention to the songs of theirs that she played, so guess I'll have to go back and dig into that.

We started working on new material as a band over the last year and a half - you know, the three of us, Zac, Taylor and I - and I just want to say it, I don't even feel like it gives away very much...Bloc Party, from day one, was the number one reference because, it was like, there was such an urgency to their sound that was different from the fast punk or the pop punk or the loud wall-of-sound emo bands that were happening in the early 2000s.
