Nothing on my phone this morning except a couple of replies. there was a new vid by lana. out of the people today, really lana must be the top. chan isnt making music any more it seems, and the last one was unfortunately more towards a pop attempt, which is one of her ambitions i think but didnt go through. both women. are there any other musicians today? lanas been putting out tracks for the past few months to a year. mariners apartment complex, venice bitch, and doin' time (by sublime). with 70s like ( / 90s like) solos and lots of lyrics. theyre mostly not that great songwise, but still good and lana. before them i thought highly of lana but not as highly as now. something in the type of songs. yup, i think higher of her than if she had put out an album full of amazing written songs. the one today was another ballad, about it sounded like an appraisal of things, culture, music, and possible bowing out. it has the lyrics 'guess im burnt out afterall.' and that she and her friends miss rock and roll. this is the same thing ive been feeling recently.
i had a few shitty days a few days ago, uncontrollable, and wrote a metal album. so much more interesting than the electronic shit recently. and the drums. i wont explain. i dont think you can ignore or avoid electronic. its just that its not as fun to play. you dont have an instrument. and the people making it are producers, hands off, and thats not the same either. when you listen to their tracks. a girlfriend of mine sent me a couple shes been listening to. they werent bad. there was a good use of accentuating organ synth notes, and i think a decent guitar or voice hook. but overall so flat and boring. you can hear that they probably took a few loops and premade samples and put them in to compose the majority of the track. also that they probably didnt spend years picking up and playing an instrument or writing songs. the other thing though that i was feeling a bit ago is that the musics not hard enough. ive been wanting harder music again. the headbanging, the arm banging or fist pumping, the forward sound, the attitude and perspective. even hard edm doesnt have it. it has just louder grinding serum synths and bigger builds.
i guess also that lana is a bit like the latin and greek poets now, that commented on things and made us think or realize them, also in song. the poets of old did so in song, right? the recent ones just in verse mostly meant to be read. but like of old, now we wake up in the morning and still in our bed listen to lana sing a song about the times still in our bedsheets sheets wondering what were going to do with the day.
