in other carly news here's a track she co-wrote, originally from the emotion sessions (her version leaked years ago)

ufo, Monday, 1 April 2019 14:39 (three years ago) link

CRJ's style choices (as in fashion) in the last 6 months or so have been A++. Either that or she looks good in everything.

wonder if Track 10 is a Charli cover

ILX pre-cover?

Jeff W, Monday, 1 April 2019 18:45 (three years ago) link

presumably "party for one" didn't make the album because it wasn't a hit (that's the usual reason labels do this isn't it?) but who on her team was seriously expecting it to be one?

including the release date on the cover is so odd

ufo, Monday, 1 April 2019 22:00 (three years ago) link

maybe that's when she'll be "dedicated"

cheese canopy (map), Monday, 1 April 2019 22:05 (three years ago) link

including the release date on the cover is so odd

Makes me think of Oasis' Be Here Now.

Was "Party for One" not a hit?? I mean certainly not on the level of anything from E-MO-TION but I've been hearing it out and about quite a bit.

vision joanna newsom (Stevie D(eux)), Tuesday, 2 April 2019 21:07 (three years ago) link

there's still an outside chance it'll be one of the "TRACK 1"s and/or (more likely) a bonus track

a large tuna called “Justice” (C. Grisso/McCain), Tuesday, 2 April 2019 21:32 (three years ago) link

I thought it was pretty popular too, but I just looked at the peak chart positions thing on Wikipedia and... yknow, one of those moments you realize ILX is not the world

maffew12, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 22:32 (three years ago) link

Even "I Really Like You" only got to #39 on the Hot 100 in the States. They even got Tom Hanks in the video, like. What more do you people need?! Ug. Goodnight

maffew12, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 22:41 (three years ago) link

"party for one" wasn't even especially popular on ILX. it placed at #92 in last year's track poll

monotony, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 23:00 (three years ago) link

great song though deserved better

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Tuesday, 2 April 2019 23:14 (three years ago) link

I like Party For One a good amount but it's my least favourite of the three recent singles.

kitchen person, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 02:18 (three years ago) link

ILX pre-cover?

Perhaps...but we need songtitles in full first.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 04:19 (three years ago) link

I Really Like You got to #3 in the UK but Run Away With Me didn't even make the Top 40 and that was her last "hit" over here.

groovypanda, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 08:27 (three years ago) link

Bought a presale of the album to get a code to get presale tickets for the London gig. It seemed to sell out in under a minute, so no tickets for me yet.

Chewshabadoo, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 09:26 (three years ago) link

Im not surenif it works the same in UK, but dometimes in the U.S. with Ticketmaster, if you keep trying you can still score. I think the deal is people will have them in their carts but then not buy them? I tried to buy tickets for something last year and when I logged on at 10 a.m., it said "no tickets available." I kept trying and gave up, but went back half an hour later out of sheer frustration and managed to get some. Dont want to fill you with too much hope but maybe keep trying for a minute.

☮ (peace, man), Wednesday, 3 April 2019 09:36 (three years ago) link

Turns out I got a code that can only be used for US dates, and I could have got a free code for the London/Paris gigs if I had been paying attention: https://zaphod.uk.vvhp.net/vvreg/14293-637481.html

Johnny Fever, Friday, 5 April 2019 15:00 (three years ago) link

Yep, a very disappointing morning for everyone I knew trying to get tickets.

I didn't get any either :( it was gonna fall on the gf's birthday, so now she is pissed at me. Fuck ticket master.

"julien" comes out friday

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 17 April 2019 19:16 (three years ago) link

Too early to say which songs I would have preferred to see on the A-sides release, but "Let's Sort The Whole Thing Out" would definitely have been one of my favorite tracks from that album. I might have also put "Felt This Way" on the album proper.

enochroot, Friday, 22 May 2020 15:33 (one year ago) link

i would replace "feels right" with "summer love" if i cared to do such a thing

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Friday, 22 May 2020 15:45 (one year ago) link

I don't love all of this (even Carly can't sell "I'll be your special somebody/God I love your body") but from "Heartbeat" through to "Now I Don't Hate California After All" makes a super solid stretch and those two particular songs (+ "Let's Sort The Whole Thing Out") are among my favourites she's done.

coptic feels (seandalai), Saturday, 23 May 2020 23:48 (one year ago) link

It’s buried near the end, but Solo is the big euphoric pop banger here.

aphoristical, Sunday, 24 May 2020 05:12 (one year ago) link

"Solo" bugs me a bit for some reason I can't quite discern

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Sunday, 24 May 2020 10:58 (one year ago) link

i know we're still talking about side b but i was just thinking about how "happy not knowing" is the best song ever

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Monday, 25 May 2020 04:57 (one year ago) link

Definitely a highlight

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Monday, 25 May 2020 05:03 (one year ago) link

guess who also has a quarantine album in the pipeline

k*r*n koltrane (Simon H.), Thursday, 28 May 2020 14:40 (one year ago) link

i put off digging into dedicated for a long time, and i just realized it was the monochromatic cover putting me off. emotion is overflowing with color, so monochrome felt like a bad turn. but i'm listening to it now and it's just. remarkable.

does anyone else have this experience with carly where she seems to have an uncanny ability to go through my mental listening history, pick out sounds i've liked but wish there were more examples of, and then make perfect songs from them? is this just me?

Josh (phantompenguin), Thursday, 28 May 2020 16:20 (one year ago) link

I can't say I feel you on the second point exactly (she does use a lot of cool sounds tho), but I used to feel like albums with black and white covers somehow made the music more drab

Vinnie, Friday, 29 May 2020 04:53 (one year ago) link

As for Side B, "Comeback" is my big keeper from the album

omg the sheer euphoria of the chorus coming in after the bridge, I can't tell if it's just me but the harmony that goes up instead of down sounds like it's mixed just a biiiit louder and it gives it so much lift

I love them too! I just hope she isn't hurting herself as much as it sounds like. Also, I didn't realize that the backing vocals were so generic. I don't keep up with much dude pop these days.

But on a similar note, I have had a disquieting thought about Want You In My Room. I've been operating under the assumption that Carly herself provided the vocodered vox on the chorus. But what if it was Jack Antonoff and the song was more of a duet? Under so much processing - would it matter? It kind of gives me chills (the bad kind). Is there any evidence to support or debunk this?

― ☮ (peace, man), Wednesday, May 22, 2019 12:41 PM (one year ago) bookmarkflaglink

i don't have liner notes in front of me but i've been assuming the robotic voice in the chorus is him. i... don't think this makes the song a duet any more than his "whoaaoh"s on "out of the woods" would

― american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, May 22, 2019 12:45 PM (one year ago) bookmarkflaglink

I guess I just don't want Jack Antonoff wanting me in his room.

― ☮ (peace, man), Wednesday, May 22, 2019 12:48 PM (one year ago) bookmarkflaglink

I just got around to listening to the CRJ interview on the Switched On Pop podcast from last May. Not a favorite podcast of mine, to be honest, but I went back to it since it's an interview. Anyway, relevant passage: "Jack's so gifted at the vocoder." I am at peace with this fact though. It doesn't bother me like it did back then.

Murgatroid, Friday, 6 May 2022 12:30 (one week ago) link

I like it. It was pretty underwhelming when she played it in the middle of her Coachella set the other week, so I'm glad that the recorded version sounds better to me. I hope we get word about an album soon, rather than having to wait in interminable silence or through several more sporadically released singles.

Whew I'm relieved. From the title and some of the photography leading up to this, I thought she was going to go down a Folklore/Evermore path and I wasn't into that idea AT ALL.

Great Lush Song, very "Warm Blood" that was also produced by Rostajm, love it honestly.

aguzman1990, Saturday, 7 May 2022 17:46 (one week ago) link

Which also not hard to imagine fitting in a Vampire Weekend album, most likely Modern Vampires of the City.

aguzman1990, Saturday, 7 May 2022 17:51 (one week ago) link

As far as album teasers go,

I hope Rostam is involved with more songs on this album. Warm Blood is peak CRJ.

Perhaps it’s partly the song title but I am getting strong early Saint Etienne vibes from this.
