I've followed her on FB for a while and initially thought it was a cool creepypasta type project but also I'm not actually sure.

i kind of love how she's been fully embraced by wwe. this was a ppv theme last year

I’m not going to lie, I know about all the bad stuff about her but I’ve listened to Am I A Girl? about a million times since it came out

what's the bad stuff?

"i disagree" is song of the year

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 4 November 2019 15:22 (one year ago) link

I've not really followed her music career, but me & the kids were fans of her peculiar performance art videos at the start. We still quote bits to each other. "3:36? Oh no, I'm late. Three plus three is six. What does it mean?"

Michael Jones, Monday, 4 November 2019 15:32 (one year ago) link

great videos

yeah i'm not sure you can drop that bomb on us without explaining further!

borntohula, Monday, 4 November 2019 16:55 (one year ago) link

Do you mean the Mars Argo stuff? If it is, yeah that's a fairly deep rabbit hole and I can't engage with her stuff the same way after reading about it. Unless there's even more than that?

ascai, Monday, 4 November 2019 16:57 (one year ago) link

Yeah I do!

On April 17, 2018, Sinclair's former collaborator and partner Mars Argo filed a 44-page lawsuit in Central California court against Sinclair and Poppy alleging copyright infringement, stating that Sinclair based Poppy's online persona on hers, as well as emotional and physical abuse Sinclair had allegedly subjected her to in the period after their separation and the subsequent abandonment of the project. On May 7, Poppy made a public statement about the "frivolous" lawsuit, saying Argo was attempting to manipulate her psychologically. She called the suit a "publicity campaign" and a "desperate grab for fame".It was settled out of court on September 14 "with no money exchanging hands".Argo released a statement in January 2019 that all rights to Mars Argo had been assigned to her as part of the settlement.

gyac, Monday, 4 November 2019 16:59 (one year ago) link

I was just going to stop by this thread to say I'm considering going to a Poppy show just for the spectacle of it all. That lawsuit thing is heavy tho.

me too! it's like prog poppy, especially with the reprises. proggy

I love this one, might be my early favourite

glindr jackson (gyac), Saturday, 11 January 2020 16:40 (one year ago) link

this album is fantastic, especially like the psych-pop fusion of "concrete" and "anything like me"'s industrial groove

love the depeche mode "grabbing hands grab all they can" reference on "bloodmoney"

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 13 January 2020 15:14 (one year ago) link

in fact i think repurposing an oft-maligned depeche mode lyric kinda summarizes what this album is going for

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 13 January 2020 15:28 (one year ago) link

Yesss I love Depeche Mode and that line is so great ❤️ anyone who hates on DM esp for Everything Counts is clearly a clown though

get ready for some riffs ned

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 13 January 2020 18:13 (one year ago) link

the ending of "concrete" kills me, when everything turns into this bright and beautiful ray of positivity while singing 'turn me into a street'

also the drums on "BLOODMONEY" sound a lot like "closer" to me

gman59, Monday, 13 January 2020 19:00 (one year ago) link

I didn’t get Closer, but I did get a bit of The Beautiful People from Anything Like Me?

steer karma (gyac), Monday, 13 January 2020 19:16 (one year ago) link

Actually think I’m a bit obsessed with Sit Stay - it’s the whole pre chorus/chorus plus,...that fucking outro is spectacular

watched a couple of the videos and I don't hate it but so far I'm struggling to hear how it's much more than a basic version of Grimes.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 15:59 (one year ago) link

my initial instinct was that it reminds me of some of the stuff Ginger Wildheart has been doing, especially the Hey Hello album, but a full listen might scotch that

hearing "concrete" was a lot like hearing jellyfish's "joining a fan club" for the first time

wish i could vote for it in the ilm poll tbh

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 16:20 (one year ago) link

You know, this kinda reminds me of Shiina Ringo to an extent.

the Shiina Ringo thread

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 14 January 2020 16:32 (one year ago) link

i enjoy a lot of this! "concrete" is friggin great.

i do feel like the juxtaposition of pop and heavier stuff works best when the heavy stuff is as well thought-out and complex as the poppy stuff -- like the power metal-type leads and straight industrial moments are a lot more interesting than like, chunky limp bizkit riffs.

love the "wouldn't it be nice" reference in concrete too

this is a good description of one of the videos I watched ("X") but idk it felt less like peanut butter and chocolate and more like peanut butter and mayo (ftr I like mayo).

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 19:08 (one year ago) link

i have no beef with grimes but she can't write 1 hook let alone 3 in one song

idgaf (roxymuzak), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 19:09 (one year ago) link

i should say: i have no MUSICAL beef with grimes

idgaf (roxymuzak), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 19:10 (one year ago) link

this is probably entirely the wrong question to ask but to what extent was that sinclair character involved in this new album?

opden gnash (imago), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 19:17 (one year ago) link

she split from him (and made similar accusations against him)

idgaf (roxymuzak), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 19:18 (one year ago) link

Was "Concrete" in last year's songs poll? I'd like to vote for it this year.

swing out sister: live in new donk city (geoffreyess), Wednesday, 2 December 2020 16:57 (six months ago) link

Most romantic song since "Agoraphobia."

i don't think anyone voted for "concrete" last year, now is the time

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Wednesday, 2 December 2020 17:01 (six months ago) link

yes

swing out sister: live in new donk city (geoffreyess), Wednesday, 2 December 2020 17:12 (six months ago) link

oh yeah I'm definitely voting for concrete as well as the album

no longer worried about what the next poppy record is gonna sound like

those vocals!!

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Sunday, 14 March 2021 23:05 (three months ago) link

hell yeah this rules

what reason was there to be worried

ufo, Sunday, 14 March 2021 23:12 (three months ago) link

idk the acoustic christmas ep had me wondering, is all

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Sunday, 14 March 2021 23:14 (three months ago) link

i didn't really expect that to be representative of anything in the same way that i wasn't expecting the impressively bad noise EP she put out last year to be either

this rrrrrips

as with most of i disagree this feels like it was born right out of my brain

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Sunday, 14 March 2021 23:26 (three months ago) link

its really nice to have someone making heavy music calibrated to exactly what i want from it

ufo, Sunday, 14 March 2021 23:31 (three months ago) link

lol she lost the grammy to ice-t

G.A.G.S. (Gophers Against Getting Stuffed) (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 14 March 2021 23:46 (three months ago) link

but yeah the last album was very good and this is too! she's really upped her game a lot! i am amused that she is opting for a St Vincent look here.

G.A.G.S. (Gophers Against Getting Stuffed) (forksclovetofu), Sunday, 14 March 2021 23:48 (three months ago) link

Huh. I don't mind what I've heard from Poppy at all but this performance is kind of a sweet/sour-spot blend of "I'm enjoying this" and "This is calibrated to sound like the guitar is a mosquito tied down to a splinter and shoved into my ear."

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 14 March 2021 23:49 (three months ago) link

i despise poppy and have from the second i encountered her a few years ago. just had to register that i guess.

map ca. 1890 (map), Sunday, 14 March 2021 23:55 (three months ago) link

there's a slight j-metal/j-pop vibe to this which i am v enjoying

"eat" is just the same version as that grammys performance it sounds like, still fantastic though

i listened to it twice through all of these songs are fucking incredible

whole thing rules, she keeps getting better and better

ufo, Wednesday, 9 June 2021 02:47 (two weeks ago) link

she sounds even better now that she's shifted away from the high vocal affect she used to do

are you seeing her open for deftones on their upcoming tour

curse you rescheduled dates

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Wednesday, 9 June 2021 03:01 (two weeks ago) link

oh that's a shame! i just saw that she was opening for them and thought 'wow that seems like a dream brad combination'

i think i'm just going to keep this on loop all day, she really understands exactly what i want out of metal it's incredible

oh wow i didn't dream that this came out

mellon collie and the infinite bradness (BradNelson), Wednesday, 9 June 2021 12:50 (two weeks ago) link

she knew what we would like to eat for sure

ufo, Wednesday, 9 June 2021 12:51 (two weeks ago) link

Poppy's one of those contempo artists where everything's about streaming, so it's SO FUCKING HARD to work out how to buy her music, especially in FLAC.
I'd love the EPs on CD, but that ain't gonna happen (blessed that I got I Disagree on CD though!)

raven, Wednesday, 9 June 2021 13:35 (two weeks ago) link

Found it:

This exercise is particularly difficult in Australia...

raven, Wednesday, 9 June 2021 13:39 (two weeks ago) link

i was just about to point you there, 7digital/zdigital etc. is about the only reliable place for FLACs or even mp3s apart from bandcamp for artists who use it these days, now that google play music is dead

ufo, Wednesday, 9 June 2021 13:41 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah, thanks @ufo. Glad I remembered! It is where I usually end up.

raven, Wednesday, 9 June 2021 13:43 (two weeks ago) link

Oh, yes, this EP. She's Charli XCXI. I was going to say Charli XXX, but that's obviously Ayesha Erotic.
