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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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 (one year 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")

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 (one year 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

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 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.
