"She was then backstage with him at Lowlands in Holland and Pukkelpop in Belgium earlier this month.
It's all a bit mucky as he has been linked with Johnny's ex, Fabiola." All very incestuous...
But at the same time, I do it only because I have a band.
And it's funny because you have all these things intertwining. But yeah, I've had some very positive experiences going on dates as a result of Raya -- it just seems like a different dating pool than Tinder where the only criteria is literally mileage in terms of distance.
I want to get rid of my Facebook, but Tinder won't work without it. But I image a future where you go to the bank and they say, "You can't access your account unless you have Candy Crush." The interconnectivity of things is getting ridiculous, especially when things like toasters are starting to have Bluetooth in them.
There are so many things you can't use if you're not signing in with your Instagram, and they've basically found a way to enslave you into having to operate in this paradigm because it just makes your Internet life so convenient. I am a musician in Brooklyn, and I'm definitely on Raya. But at that point, if everything is interconnected, that's just another way that you can be monitored.
But the balance between that and IRL is slowly tipping. Speaking of which, you mentioned Tinder, but are you on any other dating apps? But I also imagine that episode of The Twilight Zone where that dude's house tries to kill him...
I was also reading this article the other day about the future of surveillance and how there's been controversy between the CIA or FBI when they were trying to access this laptop.
The band’s new album, , is no exception, but after a five-year hiatus from releasing music, MGMT displays a heightened awareness of their social context as they delve even further into the realm of the unexpected.
I appreciate Van Wyngarden and Goldwasser’s continued resistance to popular standards of indie pop, and the extent to which they write songs in response to the present cultural climate.
Much of the album doesn’t make for light-hearted background music, but is artistically exciting and valuable nonetheless.
A few stand-out numbers include “Hand It Over,” a more traditional, mellow piece with a catchy chorus and cunning political commentary in the lyrics: “The deals we made to shake things up and the rights that they abused might just fuck us over.” The upbeat “One Thing Left to Try,” is rhythmically exciting EDM that overlays urgent existential insecurities in the lyrics with a catchy musicality.
Unlike much of the rest of the album, this technique does not become tired or overwrought.
