"warmthness, bjork"

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 2 August 2017 16:06 (three months ago) Permalink

I really love how she compliments visually every album and tour but I haven't felt particularly interested in anything she's done since Medulla. I've listened to every one of her albums at least 10 times and nothing of her recent material sticks out to me (safe from the music videos and the amazing dresses, maybe a couple of musical moments here and there).
She has long deviated from making pop, her more recent experiments aren't particularly interesting or innovative to my ears and even though she is usually joined by great string players or electronic producers I don't know how to describe it properly but I feel it all sounds very sharp... like it's missing something

dance cum rituals (Moka), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 16:11 (three months ago) Permalink

for someone who is clearly very warm towards music and people, her production choices end up in the cold spectrum for me.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 16:12 (three months ago) Permalink

feel the same way moka for the most part.

Did like the last one because it was aesthetically a retread of Homogenic in some ways

Week of Wonders (Ross), Wednesday, 2 August 2017 16:46 (three months ago) Permalink

While Vulnicura was probably her first release in a decade that actually moved me (i.e. it wasn't just stuff that I appreciated/admired but not loved), it was a bit too dark/depressing to listen to on a daily basis. So I'm having high hopes for this one. Apparently Arca's on board again - which will probably mean sharp/cold production, well, he's her new right hand now - but there are going to be flutes/woodwinds instead of strings this time, and it's her 'Tinder' album (lol) - about searching for utopia and being in love. She's used words like 'happy,' 'dreamworld' and 'paradise' to describe it. I wonder how it'll translate to the sound. I'm not hoping for a return to her 90s art-pop beginnings but something lush, beautiful and emotional like Vespertine would be great.

mthrn, Wednesday, 2 August 2017 16:50 (three months ago) Permalink

It's a retread of homogenic but much older... heartbroken but lacking that sense of wonder of what's next. I can't deal with that sort of statements at this point in my life tbh. Maybe in a couple of years.

Hopefully this new album is different, I miss her more playful side.

I think the problem for me is she has largely neglected to write catchy melodies for her last 3 or so albums, she just does this kind of warbling up and down the scale thing.

chap, Wednesday, 2 August 2017 16:53 (three months ago) Permalink

Some of the Vulnicura songs have stayed with me, but yeah I feel ya about lack of catchy melodies since... Vespertine? I mean, I appreciate that she has kept trying to push forward, but it's just lost me. I still check out each new album to see if it finally connects with me the way the first four albums did

I didn't like the last one much and REALLY didn't like Volta but I dig Biophillia more than most people it seems :C

I was very cool on Biophilia initially but for some reason it clicked after I ignored it for a year.

Some tidbits from a new piece in Dazed:

1. The focus of the album this time are flutes and woodwinds instead of strings.
2. The overall vibe of the record is light / airy / weightless, with only a few heavier moments.
3. Songs feature samples of birdsong and natural sounds; some sampled from David Toop's 1980 album Hekura, some recorded by Björk & Arca in Venezuela.
4. Arca is back as the co-producer, this time working with Björk from scratch. He apparently pushed her to explore further territories she only scratched with tracks like "Batabid" or "Ambergris March".
5. The album is not exactly political but it's about creating a future utopia, both in a personal and universal sense.
6. Possible first single - a love song called "The Gate" with a video directed by Andrew Thomas Huang.
7. One of the most melodic and straightforward tracks is called "Allow" and it's about her friendship with Arca. She's not sure yet if it'll be included on the album.
8. "Loss" is a song recorded with Rabit and it features his crushing jackhammer rhythms.
9. The song "Features Creatures" (lol) describes the feeling of seeing someone with the same beard and accent as a lover. BTW Björk is allegedly dating Tri Angle's Robin Carolan.
10. No title or release date yet but 'very soon'.

Ugh not too keen on Arca coming back as a producer his style is very claustrophobic for bjork.

dance cum rituals (Moka), Thursday, 3 August 2017 17:04 (three months ago) Permalink

maybe Bjork albums are better 'in description' these days. Cause that list sounds bloody awesome, yet I can only echo Moka's sentiment in the 'actuality of listening' to her recent output.

Ludo, Thursday, 3 August 2017 18:47 (three months ago) Permalink

i didn't like volta at all and it did kind of put me off her for a while. I'll always listen but I feel similar to many here. Vespertine I loved; and I don't know if I'll love another album of hers like that again, but I'll always hope

akm, Thursday, 3 August 2017 18:49 (three months ago) Permalink

I think Drawing Restraint 9 is where it started to go a bit awry. Even Volta felt like it was straining to be fun. chap OTM about her vocal melodies.

ok, not with her anymore. Google translated: "Tappi Tikarrass was born in 1981 and worked until 1983. At the beginning the band was composed of four boys from Reykjavík and later added to the singer Björk. The band drew a lot of attention at the time, for example, in the film Rokk in Reykjavík. The band was revived in 2015 and today the band consists of Eyþór Arnalds, Jakob Smári Magnússon, Eyjólfur Jóhannsson and Guðmundur Þór Gunnarsson, all the original members of the band. The band has finished recording a new album and has released two new songs this year, Spak and Listen."

dance cum rituals (Moka), Friday, 15 September 2017 17:48 (two months ago) Permalink

I’m not feeling the new track either; except for the gorgeous intro it sounds like a boring Biophilia outtake but with Arca’s production shtick (that I’m kind of over). But apparently the rest of the album is very different sound-wise. Airy and happy. She has put together a twelve-piece Icelandic flute ensemble and they are featured on the record. So I’ll hold my judgement until I hear the whole thing.

(The title is Utopia, by the way.)

ˈʌglɪɪst preɪ, Friday, 15 September 2017 18:24 (two months ago) Permalink

Same. She was comparing it at least thematically in interviews to Vespertine, so I have no choice but to trust her.

Anne of the Thousand Gays (Eric H.), Friday, 15 September 2017 18:38 (two months ago) Permalink

Wow... It's like I've been listening to a different track entirely than all of you. This is beautiful, and miles away from Medulla.

Don't mind me, but if you call such an intimate, skin-on-skin song "dull" or "boring", then maybe Björk isn't for you anymore? Idk. I just don't get the negative responses. This sounds very much in line with Vespertine, minus the icicle Matmos production, stripped of sonicry. I agree it probably needs to be heard in the context of the album. But this is not dull, nor boring.

Sparse, minimal (those two alone rule out Medulla refs already imo), stark naked (like Vulnicura was). While I agree that this could be an unfortunate choice for a single (whatever a "single" means nowadays for artists who work album-wise, like Björk), the song itself is great. I am so on board, yet again.

in the spirit of #metoo i would like to lend women around the world a hand with a more detailed description of my experience with a danish director . it feels extremely difficult to come out with something of this nature into the public , especially when immediately ridiculed by offenders . i fully sympathise with everyone who hesitates , even for years . but i feel it is the right time especially now when it could make a change . here comes a list of the encounters that i think count as sexual harassment :
1 after each take the director ran up to me and wrapped his arms around me for a long time in front of all crew or alone and stroked me sometimes for minutes against my wishes
2 when after 2 months of this i said he had to stop the touching , he exploded and broke a chair in front of everyone on set . like someone who has always been allowed to fondle his actresses . then we all got sent home .
3 during the whole filming process there were constant awkward paralysing unwanted whispered sexual offers from him with graphic descriptions , sometimes with his wife standing next to us .
4 while filming in sweden , he threatened to climb from his room´s balcony over to mine in the middle of the night with a clear sexual intention , while his wife was in the room next door . i escaped to my friends room . this was what finally woke me up to the severity of all this and made me stand my ground
5 fabricated stories in the press about me being difficult by his producer . this matches beautifully the weinstein methods and bullying . i have never eaten a shirt . not sure that is even possible .
6 i didnt comply or agree on being sexually harassed . that was then portrayed as me being difficult . if being difficult is standing up to being treated like that , i´ll own it .
hope
let´s break this curse
warmth

As a lot of people noted, though, she was pretty clear at the time that the experience soured her on both acting and Von Trier. This is an angrier underscoring as to why.

Yes, fuck Von Trier.
Also, fuck his sleazy production team for enabling it and framing Björk afterwards as the crazy/difficult one with their ridiculous stories, and now claiming "they were the victims" and that "she dictated everything and was about to close a movie of 100m kroner". Boo-fucking-hoo.
And fuck Catherine Deneuve for being a sexual harrasment apologist and perpetuating Von Trier's lies in interviews for years.

Very proud of Björk for coming out with this story.

also, while he was clearly out of control and shitty to bjork, this is one case where I would be interested in hearing his reply - especially because I don't think he'll deny everything or offer a dismissive apology like most men do.

but then again this is hard for me to process

Actually, he has already denied it:

Danish film director Lars von Trier has rejected Icelandic pop singer Björk’s allegation that he sexually harassed her during the making of the movie Dancer in the Dark.

“That was not the case. But that we were definitely not friends, that’s a fact,” Von Trier told Danish daily Jyllands-Posten in its online edition.

Imago, when you are talking about someone who it appears to me, has surrounded himself with a coterie of yes-people and enablers, and then from a position of power attempts to sexually harass a woman, then attempts to exert his power(and that of his group of acolytes) to punish her for knocking him back. Then I thought it would be fair to describe such behaviour as a symptom of an unbearable personality disorder. I didn't use a disability slur word or anything. Is this being "called out"? ffs!

Artist who did the makeup is drag queen Hungry: https://www.instagram.com/isshehungry very sickening yet awesome work. I can see why Bjork would have chosen her work, it's very symmetrical and some of it even seems inspired by the same aesthetics bjork has used in the past. e.g.: https://www.instagram.com/p/BUzmenOjDLz/

I kind wish they have gone with something like that, this one is kind of disturbing and not as aesthetically pleasing what with the bird fetus and voldemort slits on the neck and the alien vagina on her forehead.

A few of the track titles (some might be work-in-progress and/or variations of one track): Allow, Arisen My Senses, Blissing Me, Body Manners, Body Memory, Courtship, Features Creatures, Future Forever, The Gate, Loss, Utopia.

"Features Creatures" is Bjork singing over this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2FQ2DAEh1Mw

(This is not a joke.)

Apparently the album flows in four distinct movements and features birdsong, flutes, harps, choirs, woodwinds etc. Overall a pretty light/airy feel but there's also a track with Rabit ("Loss"), so expect darker elements as well. Arca is not only the co-producer but also the co-writer on many songs.

A tour with a 12-piece flute ensemble is planned (first announced date: London's All Points East Festival in May). Björk said she might play flute on stage.

Björk’s New Album Is a Love Letter to Optimism

New single, "Blissing Me":

https://open.spotify.com/track/18pZmxEPXqJgEa67WQpGRz

Surprisingly simple and kind of catchy, very tender vocal delivery, pretty much just a harp and a kick, slightly similar vibes to the more stripped-down stuff from Vespertine and the Drawing Restraint 9 soundtrack. Probably also echoes of "Batabid" and "Virus". Very different to "The Gate", I like it.

So this album really is something, huh? Quite overwhelming after two first listens. For sure her longest, but perhaps also weirdest and least immediate yet? Medúlla and Biophilia seem now like merely a prelude to her idiosyncracies blossoming in full on Utopia.

The woodwind arrangements are gorgeous; she's really developed as a composer and arranger over the years. Perhaps that's how the record should be seen? As a non-narrative piece of modern classical / folk / electronic fusion, rather than an album in the singer-songwriter sense?

I don’t like it much. She needs to stop hanging around with Arca, his style is very bloated and every song in here is just nothing. Cool arrangements here and there but where are the actual songs? I struggle to remember any of them.

Rong.

Matt DC, Thursday, 23 November 2017 13:38 (yesterday) Permalink

Vespertine, Medulla, Volta and even Biophilia were based around her and some actual compositions. It seems to me like Vulnicura and this one are more based around the arrangements... don’t know how else to explain it. Like if Arca shows up with some cool sounds and arrangements and just says ‘now sing on top of this’.

I do like it more than Vulnicura but that’s not saying much.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 23 November 2017 14:16 (yesterday) Permalink

Vulnicura had some of her strongest songs in years (especially Stonemilker, Lionsong and Black Lake) and if anything the string arrangements were based around the vocal lines rather than vice-versa. And Bjork did most of the production on that record IIRC, Arca got involved relatively late in the day.

Matt DC, Thursday, 23 November 2017 14:41 (yesterday) Permalink

I actually shouldn’t voice my opinion on neither as I just can’t get into them and haven’t listened more than a couple of times. There’s not much pulling me in, sorry.

moka, i hear you with the anti-arca stuff and where that overwhelms her, I agree. But Stonemilker, Lionsong and Black Lake are still totally worth the trouble, signed a guy who was very angry at her MoMA show.

Chocolate-covered gummy bears? Not ruling those lil' guys out. (ulysses), Thursday, 23 November 2017 17:04 (yesterday) Permalink

Every album after Vespertine has a few song-songs on it -- Medulla has "Triumph of the Heart," Biophilia has "Virus" -- but they're always in the minority. I'm not saying that's a bad thing, by any stretch. The only truly disappointing album in her entire catalogue to me is Volta, for its at least implicit regressiveness. And even that has "Wanderlust" and "Declare Independence."
