question for paramore expert: what i can expect of this album based purely off the hair colour

She was blonde for parts of the "Brand New Eyes" era, so..

zac farro officially back in the band

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 20:37 (five years ago) link

that seems like a big deal

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

who is extremely unqualified to review this pop album (BradNelson), Thursday, 2 February 2017 20:53 (five years ago) link

Drumming on "ignorance" is insane good.

Tim F, Thursday, 2 February 2017 21:32 (five 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

Evan R, Thursday, 2 February 2017 21:36 (five years ago) link

They realized a two person band would look a little underwhelming on the cover.

hayley is married to chad gilbert from new found glory. she dated josh farro back in the day and the breakup went horribly and that's what brand new eyes is about and it's why the farro brothers left the band

I Am In Atlanta And Thug Is Young (imago), Thursday, 2 February 2017 21:49 (five years ago) link

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.

abcfsk, Thursday, 2 February 2017 21:58 (five years ago) link

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.

Tim F, Thursday, 2 February 2017 22:16 (five years ago) link

J0rdan S., Thursday, 29 September 2022 23:40 (four months ago) link

Isn't that an attempt to stop people constantly switching between streaming platforms? If you release episodes over more than five weeks, users will have to keep their subscription for more than a month, rather than bingeing it all in a month then switching over to another platform.

i think netflix et al saw the same thing about shows dropping all at once and then falling out of the cultural conversation a very short time later

got a ticket for their show here in Toronto, nosebleeds for $60, which is just about how much i'm willing to pay to see them

Murgatroid, Friday, 11 November 2022 20:25 (two months ago) link

Three times in the last week I thought "maybe I will try to get tickets to see such and such," and all three times I learned that the show already happened, including Paramore's.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 11 November 2022 20:35 (two months ago) link

I forgot that tickets went on sale today! The cheapest nosebleeds left in DC are $125 plus fees, and to be honest that's just not worth it to me. Oh well.

peace, man, Saturday, 12 November 2022 00:50 (two months ago) link

8 years ago - arguably at the height of their popularity, co-headlining with Fall Out Boy - the cost of my ticket, fees included, was half of that. Insane

Vinnie, Saturday, 12 November 2022 01:25 (two months ago) link

Really like this one too. Feels like they're kind of stitching together all of the stuff they do well, the pop and the emo and the postpunk.

sounds like a great BNE evolution - really appreciate how they kept it at a tight 3 minutes.

For each song in the rollout, my initial reaction has been "I don't know. Am I on board with this? Does this do it for me?" And then I listen to it 2 or 3 more times before my mind latches onto it and after that, I listen to it for the rest of the day.

There’s a real cohesion in sound when you listen to all three songs in a row - feels like they’ve been listening to a lot of early 00s dance/post-punk

Hayley mentioned Dry Cleaning and Yard Act as inspirations for the latest track, which makes sense

Roz, Friday, 13 January 2023 14:06 (two weeks ago) link

Dry Cleaning makes sense. I've never heard Yard Act, so I'll have to give them a try. The vocals on the chorus remind me of Cansei de Ser Sexy.

peace, man, Friday, 13 January 2023 14:20 (two weeks ago) link

But yeah, I agree that everything makes increasing sense in context. Can't wait for the album, but I also hope we don't get any more singles before it's released.

haha good comparison

love the new song, everything sounds so sharp

i do hope there's at least one moment on the album where a guitar sounds like a mouth opening e.g. "future"

flamenco drop (BradNelson), Friday, 13 January 2023 14:25 (two weeks ago) link

Ha it does sound like Dry Cleaning. Yard Act album is good. Reminds me of Art Brut.

Indexed, Friday, 13 January 2023 15:44 (two weeks ago) link

The band wrote the album’s closing track, “Thick Skull,” a marked sonic departure from After Laughter, on day one. “It had these shades of a few different eras of us being music fans, loving heavy, drone-y, almost shoegaze-y moments,” says Williams, also citing York’s clashing guitar patterns, Farro’s thunderous bursts of drumming and even her own rare piano playing on the song. “I was like, ‘Man, this sounds like a band I would love.’ ”
