Acts you don't "get"

Recommended Posts

There's a band that keeps on appearing on my Facebook newsfeed called Cigarettes After Sex.

It looks and sounds they have perfected the edgy, reverb drenched indie rock style and it annoys the piss out of me. More to do with style then actually writing decent tunes.

It sounds like you completely get them.

I saw them at Primavera this summer and they're probably the most boring live band I've seen. I'm not really a fan on record but it just doesn't work live at all.

Lauren Laverne puts Cigarettes After Sex on at least 10 times a day  **might not be true**

 

seriously dull music that would require drugs I think

Have to go with Explosions in the Sky, they just don't grab me at all.

Perhaps this doesn't apply if you've already seen them live but for me I liken them to Sigur Ros because their songs are instrumental, experimental and full on compositions rather than songs really. But anyway I only really 'got' it when I saw them each live. Both completely mesmerising to watch. Love em since.

Now listen to them chiefly when studying/working for long periods of time, especially Sigur Ros' live albums. Its interesting enough to keep me going, not so interesting (with hooks, riffs etc) as to distract me from my task.

Seriously guys, the fucking state of this

 

Like the sort of thing that goes viral after getting 4 red X buzzers in an X-Factor audition.

Same shit monotonous delivery on every fucking song, same w*nky 6th form band lyrics, voice is just silly as fuck. Literally the worst thing I've seen my life.

Unlike April, I do actually kinda wanna like her stuff but it's fucking tiring. I don't think I've listened to a full song of hers never mind an album.

Can't agree more. Some spoken word goes well over beats (see scroobius pip) but this just seems like the beats detract from the message

Until this moment I had never heard anything by Kate Tempest. And from this moment I will never listen to anything from her again.

Shit. Baffled.

Magical performance.

It might be very moving if she didn't sound like an exaggerated comedy sidekick from Oliver. As it is it's just annoying.

Athangyoo. I was gonna compare her to Helena Bonham Carter in Sweeney Todd but then I remembered I actually like that film.

Fucking love that film, and got mad love for watching it in the theatre. One time saw a touring stage production made for big stages but in Manchester they was performing in a smol venue in the round, and what ensued was them all bellowing in the audiences' faces and fake blood squirting on people in the front row. A grand old time in was.

Florence and the Machine's toe curling rendition of the beautiful You got the Love by Massive Attack puts her top of the all time list of the Bands I dont get category,truly believe modern pop genre radio stations like Free FM think hers is the original

Any excuse to post the original.

What a record. Even the Source was is crap compared to this.

The beach boys - what's that all about? Surfin' USA in my top 3 despised songs of all time. (1 lulu - shout, 2, everybody needs somebody - blues brothers)

The Beatles - like some stuff but feel overrated but maybe more about what they did for the music scene and as I wasn't around at the time perhaps don't appreciate.

Blur - I've tried but just doesn't happen for me apart from odd song here and there. Can't listen to a whole album.

Maybe I have something in for bands beginning with 'b'.

Sweet Little Sixteen's not in the top 3?

Johnny Two Hats. What if someone starts wearing 3 hats?

 

Hadn't put two and two together before, but you have to love the Johnny Two Hats and Don Danbury combo.
