Boys Don't Cry magazine.
Wasn't this released when the album come out or am I thinking of something different? At the pop ups.
Ah gotcha. Didn't get an email for this and it's sold out, so I guess it'll get some collector's value too. Glad I didn't get an email tbh, couldn't justify dropping 80 on this personally.
It is possibly one of the most hopeful-sounding bits of music Arca has ever released, like a chillier take on the effervescent strum of Nintendo’s Gameboy Advance music. It’s more Blade Runner than the ravier tendencies displayed on the original Sony PlayStation’s beloved load-in and certainly leagues more subtle than the weirdly academic, twelve-tone GameCube start-up exercise.
Pitchfork writing is 90% embarrassing shit at this point.
The worst part is that's way less memorable than the classic start up noises like Windows XP, Macintoshes, Gamecube, PS2, etc.
Maybe Pitchfork fading into obscurity after they have the paywall up next year will be a good thing.
We live in an unjust world so yeah.
Listening to that for the first time was like watching a movie. The big reveal at the end of The Blacker The Berry, the moment in u where Kendrick's delivery gets sobby, the poem building up, how i was a live version, and Mortal Man... It might be the most audacious album of the decade. I like Yeezus and all, but TPAB makes that looks like a covers album in comparison with the amount of risks it took.
