Great stuff.
I'm a fan of Nels Cline, but never heard about this collaboration. Gonna have to check out the album.
I can't see the video quoted in your post. So I will just post my own and hopefully my video shows and the ones after it do as well.

Queen Kwong. I kind of really dig her, a lot.

I was out of order. Goofle posted a video to be reviewed, I just commented on Francis' vid.

@Goofle: Too much on the disco-sounding side for me, but it has a decent direction to the beat. The vocals give off an '80s or '90s vibe as well. I wouldn't seek it out, but I don't outright dislike it, either.

@CoNtrivedNiHilism: It's like it wants to be an indie track, yet it also feels like it is begging to break into something more dynamic than its intentionally slow, draggy sound. But it never does. I see potential in Queen Kwong, but I'd have to hear more to know for sure.

Queen Kwong for all intensive reasons are indie. First time I watched that video, which was my first time hearing the song too. I thought that the song would break in to something more dynamic as well. But then after I listened to it again I decided that doing so would ruin the track. It's perfectly eerie. She's a young artist so I think she will grow in to her own and make better music as she gets farther along.

I'd review your song if I could see it haha.

There's low key, and then there's just plain dull. That was the latter. 4/10

That was.. surprisingly good. The beat is great and her hooks are ok though some are annoying like that ratatat hook. The Queen Kwong track was way better AND she's cuter than Ke$ha.

Idk if i would call myself a fan yet, im just getting into that kinda music. It used to sound too progressive to me but lately im developing a taste for it.

You're god damn right. Batty likes Kesha a lot. I like Queen Kwong a lot. Batty thinks Queen Kwong is plain. I think Queen Kwong is the opposite of Kesha; interesting, fun, raw, gritty. More my style. I've liked Kesha songs but Queen Kwong is just so much better to me. Check out another song Batty. Try the song Purrfiction or Cold Daggers.

Interesting. It sounds like they were going for an early-20th century sound, and this is evident by what I'm hearing to be simulated radio static. The addition of electronic sounds works well with the instruments, and the vocals are crisp and clear; the vocalist has singing ability. This could have easily come across as dated, but the band is able to avoid that. The one downside is that it meanders in places, IMO, and I feel like they didn't have to do that with what they had.

7.5/10.



Trying this again since it was skipped/not reviewed. Russian singer Eduard Anatolyevich Khil's "I Am Glad, 'Cause I'm Finally Returning Back Home" would remain in relative obscurity until it was popularized as an Internet meme in the early 2010s. Read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eduard_Khil

First of all, Black Francis is a wussy indie dweeb, so it's not surprising that he'd prefer some chick trying to sound like wussy indie dweeb rock.

And secondly, why on earth are we even comparing the two artists? As far as I can tell they sound absolutely nothing alike.

You're just introduced to Queen Kwong so I think you should become more familiar with what she's about. I spot wanna-be's as quick as you Batty, maybe quicker and Queen Kwong isn't attempting to be anything. I heard her music, heard the huge potential in it, bought Get A Witness and my suspicions of her genuine talent confirmed with a great LP. But I think you and I just see it too differently and that's ok.

I've always said Kesha isn't original and just borrows too much of her attitude and look from who influenced her, it's even in how her music sounds. But like I said. I do like some of her music. Even if it is too try hard and look at me I'm trying to be edgy. Just isn't interesting to me.
