The return of Everett True | 108. Fat White Family

The return of Everett True | 108. Fat White Family

Fuck damnit, I’m slow. Like, folk been talkin’ ’bout the Fatties for decades now. Same way folk been sayin’ that Taylor Swift album is really somethin’. Well, not the exact same way but similar, ya dig? With the newfound enthusiasm of the born-again pop/indie fan (delete as applicable). Like, somehow it’s being darin’ or risky […]

The return of Everett True | 107. The Pop Group

The return of Everett True | 107. The Pop Group

Let’s be honest for a second here. The Pop Group. They’re coming to Australia in the next couple of months, but not Brisbane. Y’bastards. Kenny G is still making records. Napalm Death is still making records. Ray Charles is still making records. Billy fucking dickhead is still making records. So why not a dose of […]

The return of Everett True | 106. Run The Jewels

I just want to hear everyone singing along with this. E-quality of the sexes! Sure, it’s juvenile. Lot of fun, too. Try working out to this and keeping a straight face at all the jiggling mounds of sweaty flesh pounding the floor around you. Yours, too. Especially yours.

The return of Everett True | 105. Björk (“Singing is like a celebration of oxygen”)

Damn. It’s out now. Did you hear? It’s been dancing through my imagination the last few days: spectral and decaying and melancholy and alert and focused on details far tinier than I recall – glistening and fleeting and soured with soaring strings and seared by emotion. Imperfect, the way sun dancing across dappled water always […]

The return of Everett True | 104. salyu x salyu

Sometimes, I’m in sync with the rest of the world. I take that back. Little, it seems, is known of the experimental Japanese artist/mainstream Japanese pop vocalist known as salyu x salyu. Certainly here. This, despite her connection with Cornelius. This, despite a YouTube video of a festival appearance with the Bank Band that’s attracted […]

The return of Everett True | 103. The Gooch Palms

Australia does trashy so well. That’s it. That’s the end of my Song of the Day for today. Click on the video, and if you like it and want to discover more then why not click on yesterday’s Singles Club post where a roundtable of Collapse Board sorts discuss this very same song. It’s enlightening! It’s […]

The return of Everett True | 102. Taylor Swift

This one has taken me by surprise. I was hoping stuff like this would happen – and it has, several times already – when I began this series a few short days ago. I didn’t expect it to come from this quarter, though. I had to go with this first: so immediate and so compelling. […]

The return of Everett True | 101. Throwing Muses

I’ve had occasion to remark upon my slowness before. Music. Currency is all. Or if not all, then a considerable part. No, it ain’t as facile as it sounds. Currency is tied up with notions of Bourdieu’s ‘cultural capital’ and – less you are a member of Bumford & Cunts or Alex ‘I Had That […]

The return of Everett True | 100. Eureka California

Sometimes, all you’re looking for from music is a good romp. This is a damn fine romp. No, don’t stop me. I’m going somewhere with this line of thought. Oh wait… I’m not. Damne fine. Rompe. Lee says: Yes yes, the local hometown slacker pop heroes…fact is, though, I’ve heard this album more than any […]

The return of Everett True | 99. The Shivas

The return of Everett True | 99. The Shivas

I’m a little confused here. I have The Shivas’ Whiteout and it sounds… no, not sludgy. It sounds like many other things of its time (2013). (Hint: it’s post-Vivian Girls.) There’s little wrong with it, aside from the fact if you’re gonna do these girl-pop harmonies then you might as well have a girl singing […]
