Yeah, that is a pretty great song. We played with Ramshackle Glory a few years ago and it was a wild show. Their message tends to be a little too on-the-nose, but Pat The Bunny’s songwriting certainly evolved between his earlier work (Johnny Hobo, Wingnut Dishwashers Union) and the Ramshackle Glory material. I don’t really listen to any of his stuff anymore though.

I definitely don’t understand what the disappointment is about. It’s a super enjoyable track with a lot of replay value and a really surprisingly great hook (the distorted backing vocals are especially enjoyable). Kendrick could have dropped something so schlocky and boring as the single for this record (like that awful Beats commercial from December sort of suggested), but this is some really nice, low-stakes Outkast/early Kanye evocation. It feels clearly aligned with of the moment artists such as Chance the Rapper, who I would say was nearly as big of a breakout in 2013 as Kendrick was in 2012. Obviously it’s not a visionary track, but neither was “Backseat Freestyle” or even “The Spiteful Chant” from Section.80, and those are still great. We’ll see how it fits in the album.
All the music you can’t leave behind. Only on the iPhone.

I think that my sister is on my account, because I don’t even know what the 1975 sounds like. I also almost never use spotify.
