Are you trying to make this the 'balloon' of 2020? Because I'm in.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 25 August 2020 06:45 (eight months ago) link

Just popping in to say I really really love this. thanks!

doorstep jetski (dog latin), Tuesday, 25 August 2020 07:12 (eight months ago) link

somebody asked me about the language in the song. is it Martinique patois? I don't detect. even a hint of French in there

doorstep jetski (dog latin), Tuesday, 25 August 2020 08:00 (eight months ago) link

Deej put me onto this and I am obsessed

Tim F, Tuesday, 25 August 2020 09:31 (eight months ago) link

yeah cool song!

dl, I certainly can't claim to understand all of it, but lots of it is in (patois-ed) English

rob, Tuesday, 25 August 2020 12:37 (eight months ago) link

yeah, only the first lines of the verses sound like they **might** be French patois - not that I understand any of it.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 25 August 2020 14:59 (eight months ago) link

I guess the correct term is Martiniquan Creole.

my Shine poll not cutting it for you breastcrawl?

Leighton Buzzword (dog latin), Thursday, 10 September 2020 13:17 (eight months ago) link

nope, neither do Springsteen, New Order, Smashing Pumpkins, Biden and the Obituary thread.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Thursday, 10 September 2020 13:38 (eight months ago) link

to name just a few

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Thursday, 10 September 2020 13:38 (eight months ago) link

they’re all fine on their own, but to see them clotted together like that is very depressing

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Thursday, 10 September 2020 13:41 (eight months ago) link

ILM just wants to go back to the basics

rob, Thursday, 10 September 2020 13:52 (eight months ago) link

This is nice and needs a thread bump

curmudgeon, Tuesday, 22 September 2020 18:06 (seven months ago) link

You don't like What's Going On breastcrawl ?

Nabozo, Tuesday, 22 September 2020 18:47 (seven months ago) link

where did I say anything about What’s Going On?? it’s a great album that I listened to a lot at one point in my life, a long time ago. I might have put it on (so to speak) once or twice in the past decade and I have no inclination whatsoever to continuously have it at the front of my mind to gauge all the new (to me) music I’m listening to against. what would be the fucking point of that?
this apparently bottomless obsession with the various reshufflings of a very limited set of albums (or definition of what is relevant music even) is extremely tiresome - ILM at its worst.

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 22 September 2020 19:21 (seven months ago) link

I think the most demoralizing ILM occurrence lately was that BOC v. BOC poll, harmlessly frivolous in itself but it got like 140 votes! I had no idea the borad had become a place for silent lurkers to click on polls to that extent

rob, Tuesday, 22 September 2020 19:35 (seven months ago) link

for me it was the hostile takeover of the Best Album on My Favourite Albums Of... polls last year. the 70s ones were fun, diverse, and inclusive, but after that they became gradually more policed and by the time we got to the 90s all the fun had been sucked out of the whole thing. it was like opening a door and suddenly realising you are very much in the wrong room, an unwelcoming fiefdom.

(but if anything, the number of votes only increased iirc)

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 22 September 2020 20:22 (seven months ago) link

but this in not why I made this thread!
it's for celebrating stuff like this:

in is

No mean feat. DaBaby (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 22 September 2020 20:30 (seven months ago) link

Thanks. I prefer to use my limited music listening time for new or at least new to me stuff.

curmudgeon, Wednesday, 23 September 2020 01:32 (seven months ago) link

I love Copilote but it's a bit cheeky that they've included a text message noise on every bar. Very distracting

These are all so great. But I keep going back to BB Compte, the way it betrays its Afro-trap rootings by ramping up the drums right towards the end
