New thread, because this might wrongfully be forgotten in a year or two. Because there is no mention of her on ILM so far apart from mine. Because I want to marry and have steamy sex with and cry over this brilliant song. Because I have played it on repeat endlessly. Because David Lynch should take note. Because it is fantastic.

Not until October when this song gets a vinyl release. There's no EP or LP yet, either. Agony.

Link doesn't work for me (not after deleting the first part of it).

I tried and tried and made a lame attempt reviving a slowcore thread earlier today but I cannot classify this song, which is really for the best. My song of the year so far, no doubt.

Wow, what a smoky little thunderstorm of a song! Youtube-to-mp3 converted immediately. Wish I was still in a position in life where I could freely abuse nyquil, cause I could totally see drinking half a bottle and listening to this on repeat for 3 hours.

I like this song but I'm getting a promotional street team vibe off of this thread...

LaMonte, Sunday, 7 August 2011 23:52 (six years ago) Permalink

I'm as unnerved as anyone by the seemingly unanimous consensus (+ as lex aptly put it, "residual suspicions about what i suspect is a shtick")... but at the same time, it really *does* feel like this totally unique, amazing, timely song that just... appeared from nowhere.

I've only ('only') played it like a half-dozen times today tho, and am trying to balance my desire for further listening against my desire to adopt a more critical and self-aware position in said listening (I get suspicious when something seems "too good to be true"). not that I'm rushing to be the first one to burst the internet echo chamber's bubble of irrational exuberance; just that I'd like to deconstruct my own and other people's reactions to this (very very good) piece of music in order to understand *why* it's hitting us all so hard.

swaguirre, the wrath of basedgod (bernard snowy), Monday, 8 August 2011 00:21 (six years ago) Permalink

off the top of my head, start with
—the ever-present mystique of the total blank-slate unknown artist, who is doing
—a well-done pastiche(?) of a much-loved style that is not especially popular or prominent at the moment, coupled with
—a strikingly original video that supports the aesthetic of the song (i.e. doesn't just feel like a gimmick), while also giving it
—an unmistakably contemporary 'twist'; all topped off with
—a hot girl, who is
—singing about video games, but also
—love,
—love,
—glorious bittersweet terrible love

swaguirre, the wrath of basedgod (bernard snowy), Monday, 8 August 2011 00:29 (six years ago) Permalink

I really hope this gets released as a one-sided 12" single that plays on 45rpm, because I'd buy the shit out of that.

Don't really wanna be friends with anyone who could hear this song and not melt.

This is great and I did melt. But I composed myself enough to play it again. Four times in a row.

It’s hardly a shock that her music so far is so diverse given all the people she’s been in the studio with over the past year, some of whom include Eg White (Adele, Duffy), Chris Braide (Cheryl Cole, Paloma Faith), Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams, Katie Melua), and newcomers Robopop (Neon Hitch, Gym Class Heroes).

I’m not sure if Miss Del Rey has landed a major label record deal yet (I’m sure she probably has and is just waiting to announce it), but she’s under the same PR company in the UK as Adele and Bjork, so the wheels are certainly in motion.

lex pretend, Monday, 8 August 2011 09:28 (six years ago) Permalink

none of those names she's been in the studio with are remotely promising :/

the top line melody is very similar too, people. anyway, i am assuming Radiohead don't give a hoot and it's all inter-lawyer bollocks

FREEZE! FYI! (dog latin), Monday, 8 January 2018 14:34 (one week ago) Permalink

Damn thing is identical in both verse AND chorus which is hella rare IMO, the first minute plus are basically Creep. Have to say i didn't spot it when the album came out.

Did Nino Rota get a credit for Old Money? I forget now..

It's not just the chords and the melody, but the singing embellishments too - the way she sings "my modern manifesto" at 0.53 is exactly like Yorke's "weirdo-oh-oh".

It's good, though! God knows I never need to hear Creep ever again, but I dig this version, especially when it changes direction after a minute or so.

I was ready to write it off as accidental but the bit where she sings "there's no more chasing rainbows" is virtually identical, this isn't a Blurred Lines/Marvin Gaye thing. But fuck lawsuits.

'Get Free' sounds a lot like 'Creep'. I immediately noticed it on first listen and I'm pretty sure I even mentioned it in this thread.

That being said, this lawsuit is dumb and this kind of stuff really should be allowed.

That verse melody is identical and they probably knew it when they were making the track. Whatever they end up giving away on the songwriting is probably worth the trending clicks.

earlnash, Monday, 8 January 2018 22:39 (one week ago) Permalink

what I like about the Iranian Video is that it seems that they are actually playing Get Free, which I hope they are.

my feelings on this matter have been complicated by the fact that Radiohead played a concert last year at a Tel Aviv concert venue that was built at the site of the ruins of a Palestinian village.

The difference is that The Hollies were "punching up" when they sued Radiohead. This is punching.. not down, but I guess laterally? Musicians gotta remember that these sorts of sue-me decisions are inherently as much a part of their art practice as "their choice of hat"

It's a crazy story because Collins didn't actually sue Radiohead. It involves Collins being the witness to Radiohead intentionally stealing a song from another band — laughing and bragging that they'd get away with it. Collins stayed quiet for a number of years and then finally turned them in — by inviting them to a concert singing Against All Odds, which he dedicated to them during that performance while shining a spotlight on them. Immediately after he finished singing they were all arrested for plagiarism.
