2020.10.23 00:22 lullabylayla [HIRING] halo. I am a songwriter/vocalist looking for album artwork for my next release. It's a plus if you know who Mars Argo is.

My next music release is a tribute to a musician named Mars Argo. So if you are familiar with her work this would make more sense.
Aspect ratio: square (3000 x 3000 pixels)
Concept: my avatacharacter wearing a bunny suit

This is my Spotify artist link for reference pics

If you go to the "about" section you will see some images of my character (purple haired girl).
This is a reference photo of the bunny suit.

2020.09.28 02:26 legendaryblackeagle If I pay for music on Mars Argo's bandcamp, does the money still go to her?

You know, after all the complications with her lawsuit and all. While my understanding of the legal aspects is superficial, I just genuinely believe she is a great musician who deserves support (and to be on Spotify. Why do all my Mars Argo albums have to be on Soundcloud?)

2020.01.14 02:41 MapleVenture Spotify playlist with a few Mars songs

For everybody that was dying to have some mars argo songs to listen to on Spotify, I did some searching and found a few. They are uploaded by different users as podcast episodes but I’ve put the ones I could find into a playlist with the link to it below.
https://open.spotify.com/usesvelteshadow21/playlist/3AsgpK0orPb1AG0vaBmsIY?si=t9hgrGEqSRGzl6OGYt9J0g
Quality isn’t the best but it’s definitely good enough. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
Edit: Looks as if the majority of the songs that I found were taken off :((( Only ones left are using you and runaway/stuck on you. Kinda sucks but oh well

2020.01.10 12:12 Labalshwin 2 years of High Taste - Images and Words: The Prog Discord 2 year Anniversary

Two years ago u/Bujjick and I decided to start a discord server for the subreddit, and it has grown exponentially since then. If you’re unaware discord is a real time chatroom-type service where we discuss all kinds of things including music, and some real friendships have been made there. We also listen to music together in what we call “Listening Parties” and sometimes we have guest musicians come in for a live Q/A type thing. This year our most attended guest listening parties were Slice the Cake, Bent Knee, and Wilderun. It’s always a good time in there and the conversation is 24/7. Just to put in perspective how active this place is there has also been over 7,800,000 messages sent in 2 years (vs 3.4 million in 2018). Come join the fun: Link to the Discord
We also have compiled a playlist of each of our High Taste member’s Album of the Decade and Album of the Year picks. The AOTD playlist has 1,007 songs and having a total length of 96 hours and 2 minutes. Here is the playlist
The most submitted album was Between the Buried and Me - The Parallax II: Future Sequence with 9 entries.
The AOTY playlist has 839 songs and having a total length of 78 hours and 7 minutes. Here is the playlist
The most submitted album was a tie between Devin Townsend - Empath and Wilderun - Veil of Imagination with 8 entries each.

2018.01.20 18:22 Ghost-Quartet 2017 Album of the Year #20: Poppy - Poppy.Computer

Artist: Poppy
Album: Poppy.Computer
Released: 6-October-2017
Listen: Spotify, iTunes, YouTube

I’m Poppy.

Poppy is an enigmatic figure. A self described “Internet Girl,” she claims her name was dropped onto her from the Heavens has a YouTube channel full of bizarre content in the form of short videos dealing with topics relevant to the modern day. She has videos upon videos full of catchphrases, bizarre outfits, “controversy,” clickbait, and most importantly, a somewhat creepy mystery. The surrealist writing and Poppy’s increasingly inhumanly artificial behavior made the channel a viral smash.
There are all sorts of theories about who or what she is. Some speculate that she’s a time traveller from the future. Some think she’s a cult leader (incidentally she does sell a cult gospel on her website, but that’s circumstantial evidence) while others insist she’s the victim of a cult. She’s definitely involved in the Illuminati, but it’s not clear how. Is she a robot? Is she an alien? Is she being held captive? Do we need to save her? How can we help Poppy? What’s happening? Searching up “who is Poppy” or “poppy explained” on YouTube reveals pages of results, videos with millions of views unto themselves of people trying to “figure out” who Poppy is, or what she’s trying to say, there are a lot of people with a lot of thoughts on her and if you’d like you can go to them for a more in detail explanation of this aspect of the project.
Poppy is the core of an ARG (Alternate Reality Game) albeit a very messy one. For all that the Poppy project is trying to emulate a polished, studio manufactured feel, the actual ARG is somewhat sloppy. For example the Computer Boy chapter, started presumably as promotion of the then soon to be released track of the same name, showed some promise and was even referenced on Poppy’s main channel, but fizzled out without any sort of resolution that I can find. Poppy has cycled through various minor “plots” on her channel and the actual characterization of what Poppy is really depends on the day. It’s unclear if there is a continuous story that’s building to some type of conclusion but the sheer dedication to the theme and aesthetic is something to be admired.
The actual truth behind the project is fairly commonplace. Moriah Pereira began as an aspiring singesongwriter, you can see a bit of her early work here, but the Poppy project was only started after she met up with creator Titanic Sinclair. Titanic is also a musician with a history on the web scene, and the two decided to team up. Wanting to both offer commentary on society and create a unique hook for their music, they conceived the Poppy character. Together they launched a YouTube channel (then titled “That Poppy”) in 2014 with this video, and since then they’ve amassed almost a quarter of a billion views and over a million subscribers. Attempts have been made to scrub all of Poppy’s early life from the internet to maintain the mystique and it’s rare to ever see Poppy out of character (though not impossible oops) and seeing her interact with the real world is, well, it’s quite something. To quote Titanic Sinclair:
"Everyone at the end of the day knows that Johnny Depp isn't the Pirates of the Caribbean guy, but he's more fun when he is. I like living in a world where you can have superheroes. It just makes life so much more exciting," (x)
So clearly, a lot of dedication has gone into this project. But what’s the point?

What Does It Mean?

At its core, Poppy is intended as a parody of pop culture, pop stars in particular, with an additional emphasis on social media. There’s a lot to unpack with the project, but those are the major themes of the project so they’re the two that I’ll focus on. The social media aspect is fairly self-explanatory and almost obligatory as Poppy began as a YouTuber. This aspect of her character is expressed in many videos and shouldn’t take too much explaining.
Core to all of this though is her relationship to pop stars, of which Poppy is both an example and a parody. For all of the conflicting theories about what she is, it’s fairly clear that Poppy is meant to be emulating the ideal pop star. She’s cute, she’s quirky, she’s relatable, she’s fabulous, she’s obsessed with social media; all of the cosmetic elements are there. She’s cultivated her own special “brand,” something that has grown increasingly important to the pop scene, and the sheer absurdity of her brand makes one question the whole idea of image over content in the first place.
And then taking it further, she plays with the idea of a “manufactured pop star.” Poppy is quite clearly not a real person, she’s a character played up on social media, but one could say much the same about a lot of celebrities. Poppy takes it one step further by possibly being actually, literally, manufactured in a lab, to appeal to teenage girls. She also plays heavily with Illuminati and Satanic imagery, based off of the endless Illuminati rumors that plague celebrities, deepening her relationship to rumors and the artificial.
For comparison, let’s look at the prototypical pop star: Britney Spears. Britney emerged on top from the period where blonde pop stars were everywhere, and is in many regards the epitome of what Poppy is parodying. A “manufactured” pop star who grew up in and was shaped by the industry, the fantasy blonde girl next door, Poppy takes these elements and distills them into something unsettling. Poppy’s heavily implied status as some sort of Illuminati slave or creation picked away at until she’s a soulless robot highlights the strange duality between the perfection and darkness that Britney embodies; the sort of idealized blonde girl next door perfection and our strange satisfaction at seeing this perfection tarnished. On a more visual level Poppy’s ambiguous youth (she’s 22 but publicly states that she “does not identify with age”) plays into the sort of “baby sexy” schtick that Britney rode to prominence on, and the visual similarities are definitely there.
Lady Gaga is another clear source of inspiration. Her penchant for unusual outfits and awards show stunts definitely call to mind Gaga, but even more important is the relationship Gaga had with the media. In 2008, barely a year after Britney dropped her iconic paparazzi diss track “Piece of Me,” Gaga released her debut album featuring her iconic ode to the paparazzi, called “Paparazzi.” Understanding that all publicity is good publicity and that she needed to make a splash, Gaga used the tabloid machine of the time to her advantage, pulling off looks and stunts that remain iconic and controversial. She was mysterious and elusive, everybody wanted to figure her out and wanted to see what she’d do next. Lady Gaga made a smash in a way that Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta never had. True she wasn’t an “authentic musician,” she was very transparently “manufactured,” but at the same time that was the allure. She wasn’t just any boring old musician, she was a living, breathing art exhibit. Poppy functions in a similar manner, however rather than tabloid media she thrives on the Internet. Surprising comparisons can be made between this Gaga interview and this Poppy “interview,” highlighting how Poppy plays up sillier elements of Gaga’s character too.
(She also seems to draw heavily from J-Pop icon Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, an artist I am not exceptionally familiar with. Fortunately FlyByTieDye did a fabulous writeup of the parallels between the two artists, which can be read here.)
And though she parodies these artists, Poppy also unironically embraces the techniques that they rose to fame on. Poppy doesn’t hate the things she parodies, quite the contrary. She loves technology, she craves fame. Her music is unabashedly poppy (get it?) and Poppy is a self described internet girl. Though she has a complicated relationship to her subject material, she ultimately seems to be in favor of it. (Or of, at least, using it.)
Poppy is utilizing Lady Gaga’s technique of intriguing imagery, filtered through the age of the viral video. Modernism is dead. Audiences want to be thrilled by a spectacle, to be treated to something out of the ordinary, but they also want nostalgia. Think about those “dark” theories about children’s shows or nostalgia tinged creepypastas, Poppy achieves a similar effect except instead of exposing the dark secrets behind the shows you watched as a kid, it’s the dark secrets behind celebrity culture. All of it is wrapped up in a delightful layer of blatant artifice that keeps it firmly in the campy category; Poppy offers us the opportunity to tear into her, but rather than getting into the actual artist and shattering the illusion we’re only treated to more layers and an enigma that goes deeper and deeper with multiple meanings and interpretations of the project, all of which are fake, and therefore equally valid.

Music Is Magic

However, that’s enough on Poppy’s project for now, let’s move on to Poppy’s music. At the end of the day, clever marketing and polished image can only take you so far; even if you’re just playing a fake, audiences will see through the ruse and discard you unless you provide the bops. And provide them she did! We’re finally at a point where I’m going to discuss Poppy’s music. Her first single, a short little ditty called “Everybody Wants To Be Poppy” debuted at the end of a brief, strange animated miniseries that played on the early days of her channel back in 2015. The peppy pop-rock track is more of a novelty song than anything else, it’s better off forgotten. For a long time this was the only song she had to her name (other than a delightful Mac Demarco cover) but don’t worry! Her debut EP Bubblebath dropped in early 2016, to much acclaim. Though only a scant four tracks, none of them cresting three and a half minutes, on them Poppy revealed herself to be a genuine musical talent behind all of the mystique.
Take for example “Lowlife” which was the big hit of the EP. It’s an infectious reggae song with Poppy’s bored sounding performance of the dark lyrics making the song a big seller, despite, as Poppy herself points out, it being an incredibly simple song that was likely meant to parody the prevalence of lazily written trop pop at the time. For most the highlight of the album is “Money,” a delightful electronic ode to Poppy’s motivations. The blatant satire of the song combined with the myriad of hooks make this song addictive, so much so that it was ranked second in the popheads 2016 Ultimate EP Rate AND it was included in the Sims.
My personal favorite track from the EP is “Altar,” a high energy pop-rock song likely meant to display the disconnect between Poppy’s robotic persona and the songs that she sings. A high energy song about rushing to the altar to stop your beloved from marrying someone else is a completely un-Poppy sentiment, which in a strange sort of way further emphasizes how “fake” the music industry can be with stars singing whatever they think will be a hit. Rounding out the EP is “American Kids,” a new-wave ode to millennial discontent.
If that track list seems a little eclectic and unfocused, you’re correct. I think the EP can best be described as “generic but good,” and this is very much an intentional choice. Poppy is a parody of a pop star, and the songs on Bubblebath were all in some way satirical of something else, meaning they kind of lacked an identity of their own. They were all solid songs and a fantastic display of Poppy’s skills as a singer and a songwriter, but they left fans wondering what direction Poppy would take her sound in for her debut album. Poppy and Titanic did drop an album in October of 2016 but it was, confusingly enough, 3:36 (Music To Sleep To), an album full of ambient music “specifically designed to help facilitate a full night of sleep and encourage a healthy dream state.“ Fortunately, fans were placated a month later with the release of a one-off single “Adored,” which followed in the bright, satirical footsteps of Bubblebath. And, almost a year after this and a lengthy waiting period (5 of the 11 tracks on the album were released as promo singles), the long awaited album finally came. Did it deliver on the premise and promise that Poppy has displayed?

Poppy.Computer

None of this information is necessary to listen to the album but it’s useful background information to help you understand the place and context of this album. Like Bubblebath, Poppy.Computer is simultaneously a pop album and a parody of one. The songs are written to sound like what people think pop music sounds like, but the resulting product is something uniquely Poppy. This gives the album a fairly broad appeal, while it obviously has special meaning to Poppy’s followers, it sounds familiar enough that someone with no knowledge of the project could pick it up and have a nice listen. For all that I’ve built this project up to be some sort of weird, impenetrable social commentary, the album itself is a fairly straightforward collection of catchy, fun pop songs. These songs have catchy hooks, quirky lyrics, and some of the hardest beats to come out of 2017. As strange as the circumstances surrounding the album are, it would have been perfectly understandable with or without the background I offered. And, sitting at 11 tracks and a lean 34 minutes, it’s a quick piece of ear candy.
Fans of Bubblebath might be disappointed by the album, which has more in common with the sparse electronic sugar of “Money” and the synth laden soundscape of “American Kids” than the tropical fan favorite “Lowlife,” but the hooks and quirky lyrics are all still there, as is the satirical bent; only now we also get some sick beats to go with them. Drawing clear inspiration from artists like Robyn, Madonna, Grimes, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, Lady Gaga, and the upstart PC Music crowd, the album is (refreshingly enough) mostly bubblegum pop. Individual tracks draw from various styles including chip tunes (“I’m Poppy”), synth pop (“Bleach Blonde Baby”), and even a hint of rock (“My Microphone”), which are made cohesive by a general focus on electronic elements and Poppy’s almost robotic delivery.
In a year where people complained that pop music was getting to dull and slow, Poppy came through with bright, upbeat pop songs. Each of these songs is approached somewhat from an angle, with unconventional themes and lyrics (mostly centering around technology) that set them apart from the typical pop fare that they’re birthed from. Poppy and Titanic have lead writing credit on every track, but they enlist Japanese producer Ryosuke Sakai and songwriter Simon Wilcox (who helped pen such /popheads favorites as “Body Say” and “Cut To The Feeling.”) to help them on this venture.
Poppy herself is the element that ties all of the songs together, and she delivers a winning performance. She proves to us that she isn’t hiding behind a gimmick to supplement a lack of talent and that she has genuine star power and presence on a track. For all that the album is centered around its digital elements Poppy always keeps herself placed firmly front and center. She manages to find surprising range and depth within the constraints of the robotic character she’s created to deliver a very nuanced performance. She sounds breathless and frantic on “Microphone” just as well as she sounds lovestruck on “Computer Boy” or sinister and seductive on “Interweb,” all while maintaining her trademark monotone. At times she feeds her voice through a vocoder providing an additional layer of texture to the album and further strengthening the idea of her as a digital pop star. She never pushes herself into any sort of vocal gymnastics, but her sweet and girlish voice sounds effortless floating over the bright production.
The cover of the album is a photograph of a look from one of her videos, entitled “Fame is Important.” Why this specific video was chosen was not revealed, but in the video itself she discusses being famous, adding that, among other things, “if you’re famous, you can record music.” Like many albums these days, a photo of Poppy’s face, but the way her face is obscured by her bizarre headdress lets you know that something is going to be different here. We’re not seeing all of Poppy, and we’re going to hear something weird.
Further adding to the mystique is the title of the album, “Poppy.Computer.As Poppy explains, the title of the album is also a url that leads to a site selling tickets for her tour, irrevocably linking the album to both this specific moment in time and the consumerist nature of the product. It also neatly establishes the technology focused themes of the album, which is awash with digital sounds and metaphors on all of the tracks.

The Net

We’re hit with the digital themes right off the bat with the explosive opening track, “I’m Poppy.” A bouncy chip tunes song, it’s very representative of what the album as a whole is going to be about. Almost mind-numbingly repetitive and self-obsessed, the bulk of the tune is Poppy spelling and repeating her name. Similar to the works of the PC Music collective she intentionally over pronounces the essential elements of the pop song, hammering in the hooks and chorus. This is a weird song that might seem alienating, but that’s exactly what Poppy wants. The pre-chorus of the song features a muffled robotic voice which asks Poppy how they can be like her and acts confused by her response. Poppy never offers any sort of solution further than an endless refrain of “I’m Poppy” and some cheerful encouragement. The message is clear: we’re on her turf now, and we’re going to play her game. The song ends with her simply singing the words “Computer. Internet. Video. Camera.” highlighting some items which will be major symbols throughout the album. This is a very weird and divisive track, but then the whole idea of Poppy is weird and divisive. If you’re not scared off and find yourself singing along with Poppy, then she’ll guide you through the rest of the album, which is a tour through the strange world of Poppy.
One of the major themes of Poppy.Computer is our reliance on technology. “Computer Boy” has a fairly unique take on the topic. The song is, appropriately enough, scored by common computer sounds twisted into a warm instrumental (the bass line in particular is fantastic) that underscores Poppy singing odes to her “computer boy.” Many reviews of “Computer Boy” assumed that Poppy was singing about a boy she had met online, but closer examination of the lyrics reveals that Poppy is literally singing about her computer. Poppy literally wants to fuck her computer because her computer is the most important thing in her life, an unfortunately relatable sentiment these days. Though a very tongue in cheek song (featuring puns about “floppy disks” becoming “hard drives”) it also doesn’t necessarily condemn the idea of a technophile lifestyle, and the exhilarating chorus coupled with Poppy’s gleeful performance make it sound like a wonderful idea.
“Software Upgrade” carries this idea further, with Poppy complaining about her fallible human boyfriend and wishing that she could upgrade him as easily as a computer. Another tongue in cheek song, Poppy’s frustrated vocals contrast against a bouncy beat and a colorful synth riff that sound far more appealing than anything a boy could offer. This track is singled out by many who listen to the album as one of the strongest tracks, and for good reason. The song also highlights some of the lyrical strengths of the album, when Poppy exasperatedly asks her boyfriend “are you gay?” it belies a straightforward camp sensibility that fits well with the rest of the bubbly elements.
In contrast, “Interweb,” a chilling synthpop track from later in the album that espouses the danger of internet addiction, using the titular slang term for the internet to describe a literal net that Poppy has trapped the listener in. The track is underscored by creeping synths and spidery keys, Poppy’s vocals are cold and processed, and there’s an appropriately creepy music video to go along with it. While at first the concept of Poppy as an internet siren luring people to their death seems silly, take into the consideration the countless hours people waste on the internet lately, and the idea becomes fairly unsettling. The bridge features Poppy describing how small the world feels when it’s at her fingertips, and she invites the listener to stay online with her and keep talking, until she’s cut off by a muffled, deep voice asking what day it is, providing a fairly creepy moment. The seemingly non-sequitur lyrics (the verses are not the album’s finest moment) can’t hide the dark message of this track, which is a change of pace from an otherwise upbeat album.
However for all that Poppy is critical of our reliance of technology, it’s ultimately celebrated as the thing that built her up. Poppy is, as the opening song explains, “[our] internet girl.” She lurks in her inter web sucking our time away because she wants our attention and our love, and, of course, our money. The connection between her music, her celebrity, and technology is painted in the intriguing track “My Microphone.” This song in particular stands out on the album partially because it has the most pronounced rock influence of any song on the album (it features some prominent electric guitar) but also because it’s almost a sketch more than a song.
The song sees Poppy frantically searching for her microphone, set against a harsh beat that makes the track almost claustrophobic. However the bridge of the song is a soft, almost Disney-esque slow jam where Poppy attempts to coax out the microphone and reveals that the reason she wants her microphone so bad is so she can become a famous celebrity… and when this soft attitude doesn’t work, Poppy whips right back into demanding her microphone, accompanied by a sick electric guitar riff. The song comically ends with her cheerfully finding it, having raised all of that fuss for nothing. The song seems to be highlighting Poppy’s need to perform, and her need to be heard. What is an artist without an audience? What is Poppy without her microphone?

I Am An Important Artist

If “My Microphone” establishes that Poppy sound desperate for attention, then “Let’s Make a Video” makes being desperate for attention sound fun. Sugary and almost retro, the song is a fairly straightforward ode to the YouTube channel that made Poppy famous. Appropriately it comes packaged with a pastel music video full of nonsensical imagery, highlighting the brand that made Poppy famous before she’d even sung a note. When she sings, “I love you when you’re happy, I love you when you’re down” she’s offering a succinct way to sum up the appeal of a distant celebrity. Her videos (and by extension, her music) will always be there and they’ll always be the same, allowing an escape for the audience no matter how much their life changes. A simple little song, it lets you know that Poppy at the end of the day Poppy is just here to entertain. She’s grateful for her videos because they let her spread her vision to a larger audience.
Speaking of her vision, one track on the album called “Moshi Moshi” specifically pays homage to the influences that Poppy draws from Japan and the Japanese artists that inspire her. Though J-Pop influences can be heard throughout the album (the album was produced in Japan under the supervision of Japanese producer Ryosuke Sakai) “Moshi Moshi” is the one track that is overtly pastiche. “Moshi moshi” is something that Japanese people say when they greet each other on the phone, and the music video features a row of Poppies answering the phone in what seems to be a direct homage to a Kyary Pamyu Pamyu song, displaying how technology has allowed Poppy to open herself up to global influences. She almost seems to be thanking her Japanese counterpart and reveling in how they’re so much better than the “typical” girls, drawing kinship to artists with a similar vision. I’m linking again to this fabulous summary of the connections between the two artists by FlyByTieDye because it’s great and you all should read it. Even though to the best of my knowledge the two artists have never interacted, they’re essentially sisters in arms in what they’re trying to accomplish. The pop music scene is constantly pulling sounds from other countries and genres (look no further than the recent trop pop trend, or the new Latin boom) and this a fun way of saying hi to the people who she’s inspired by.
Though she acknowledges the fans and artists who have helped her to get to where she is, Poppy is alone on the album save for one feature by an artist named Charlotte, an old friend of Poppy’s who appears on a track titled "My Style." Charlotte is a mannequin voiced by a text to speech program who pops up on Poppy’s channel in various roles. Here, she takes on the role of a pointless feature. There’s been a trend in recent music to tack an empty feature onto a song just to get another name to give the song broader appeal, and Poppy highlights this by featuring a mannequin on her song. A literal, plastic cutout of a human being, whose verses are computer generated. The comment this is making should be obvious. However Charlotte, a plastic feature, slips neatly into this particularly plastic song which is literally just saying random, trendy sounding objects and describing them as her style, mocking the sort of flashy name checking that a lot of artists lean on these days. Is there any substance at all? No, the song is completely empty lyrically, (although it features a few… subtle nods to the idea of subliminal messaging in music) and it features a literal mannequin. But… the beat on this song is sheer fire, and even if the lyrics are banal they sound amazing with the production. This song isn’t bad, in fact, it goes off. This song is, quite literally, invoking style over substance, and it works. also Poppy will break your neck
This theme of “technically bad song that somehow works” is tackled more directly on “Bleach Blonde Baby,” which more clearly explores the idea of the nature of fame and a “manufactured pop star” I discussed earlier. Remember when I said that Poppy’s persona was a sendup to the blonde pop star of the early 2000s? If there was any doubt in your mind about that, this song should erase it. The lyrics of the song see Poppy painting herself as a flawless bombshell, and they excellently lampoon the stereotype of the female pop star. “Being flawless every day, well that’s my only skill” she sings, “If you cut me, I’ll bleed pink.” Is Poppy actually a bleach blonde baby of the sort she describes in the song? Of course not! No one is. But we’re going to pretend because that’s all part of the fun.
We all love to shout “slay” and offer up our wigs freely with letters of praise to our favorite artists, here Poppy has written her own praises and we just need to sign the card. Her vocals are dull and listless and fed through heavily noticeable autotune, Poppy sounds like she couldn’t care less and like she can’t actually sing, evoking the criticism levied against artists like Britney Spears. Theoretically this song shouldn’t work and yet somehow it does. It’s a bop, and perhaps one of the best songs on the album. By all accounts a bored pretty person half singing through autotune over a beat about how unrealistically awesome they are should be unpleasant, and yet the charm of it is undeniable. And that’s pop music for you!

The Message

And this brings us to the final track on the album, aptly titled, “Pop Music.” This song is completely unlike anything else on the album. Here Poppy abandons her electronic production and returns to her acoustic roots, creating a tender ode to pop music. At the end of the album Poppy finally allows herself to be warm and genuine, and her charming performance on this song was something that really stuck with me after listening to it for the fist time. So much of the album is spent poking fun at and deconstructing aspects of pop music, but this track is a sweet closer because it reminds us why we love it in the first place.
What is pop music? Look at all of the different types of genres and styles represented on this sub, it’s very hard to really define what pop music is. The nature of it is entirely ineffable, you just kind of know it when you hear it. Poppy breaks it down for us very nicely, pointing out qualities that seem obvious but are really very beautiful when you think about it. Pop is catchy, it’s on the radio, it’s accessible to everyone, it’s artificial but still somehow has heart… For all of the different definitions of pop, I wouldn’t be upset if Poppy’s was the one that we stuck with. Her message is simple: “I think I like it.” Isn’t that enough?
There are a lot of debates surrounding pop music pertaining to a lack of authenticity and substance, but Poppy.Computer is a sort of neo-poptimist album that revels in this negative reputation. It embraces kitsch and formula, but it doesn’t let itself be defined by these things. Free of the pressures of more “serious” art it finds room to be silly, weird, and fun while still finding moments to actually say something about technology and fame. They say that to create a successful parody you have to have a genuine love of the thing you’re parodying. Poppy.Computer is an album that, real or artificial, entertains in a way that pop at its very best is supposed to.

What Is This Question?

  • What were things you liked about the album? What could have been better?
  • Do you like the direction Poppy has settled on for her music?
  • Is the Poppy project too much, not enough, or just enough?
  • What do you hope to see out of Poppy’s next release?
Edit: Thank you everyone for your kind responses! I know this was long so it means a lot to me that you read all the way to the end. As an addendum to this writeup, I'd like to remind you all to be on the lookout for Poppy's new album, which has recently been completed! This one is supposed to be more dance music and vapor wave, more information here.

Playlist SPOTIFY

  • Pavel Ovsyannikov Ensemble - K Zyozdam (Cosmofunk-disco / URSS) "Vous aimez la vaporwave ? Ecoutez de la cosmofunk. Oh je vous vois venir, je sais, j'ai déjà fait une playlist consacrée à l'URSS. Mais c'est grâce à elle que j'ai découverte la semaine dernière la meilleure des Cosmo-Disco, dans un EP perdu entre la disco, le trip LSD, la grosse funk et la Bande-Son de Il était une fois l'Espace. Un énorma coup de coeur pour un groupe inconnu de l'inconnu. Parfait mélange de gros kiff et de gros kitsch - Amiral_poitou"
  • Argo - Igra s solncem (Space-elctrojazz / Lithuanie) "Encore à l'Est (après j'arrête, promis) mais là aussi j'ai adoré. Un des meilleur scat que j'ai entendu, on dirait les plus gros instants de jaille de Vulfpeck aujourd'hui, c'est une bande de lithuaniens qui s'éclatent comme des fous dans leur studio. Je vous défie de pas être de bonne humeur ! - amiral_poitou"
  • Brigitte Fontaine et Areski - C'est Normal (Free-Jazz/France) "Oui, vous la connaissez peut être, la Brigitte. Mais vous n'avez pour la plupart jamais écouté ses chansons. C'est normal ! Cette piste complètement décalée, c'est à la fois l'absurde de ses personnages et la dénonciation de l'absurde de la situation sociale de l'époque. Une merveille d'humour grinçant, qui est pour moi un classique méconnu ! - Amiral_Poitou"
  • Alain Kan - Nadine, Jimmy et moi (Glam rock / France) "A l'époque, c'était un phénomène qu'Alain Kan. Avant de passer au punk et après sa carrière yéyé, Alain assume très ouvertement son homosexualité, sujet tabou des années 1970. Bowie lui-même n'en aura dit que du bien. Nadine, jimmy et moi c'est un bel exemple qu'on a pas de pétrole en France, et qu'on sait exploiter le reste. Chanson du plan à trois complètement lubrique, elle fera scandale, empêchant en partie l'avènement de Kan comme star française - Amiral_Poitou"
  • SUNSET - Cindy (Electroslam/ France) "Celle-là j'en ai déjà parlé 50x aux copains, c'est une des ziks que j'ai le plus écouté de ma vie, et c'est totalement inédit. Un genre de slam électro, à base d'une instru puissante (signée DANGER) et un texte, très drôle, dit avec une voix particulière. Un excellent cocktail, totalement inédit, et surtout génial (en tout cas pour moi haha). Le pire, c'est qu'actuellement, ils n'ont fait que quelques sons, et plus rien depuis plusieurs années. J'espère vraiment que ce projet renaîtra ! - daft_babylone"
  • Pavane - La danse des daphnis - (Electro-Ambient/France) "Le genre de zik totalement inconnue, d'un groupe totalement inconnu, mais qui est super originale, propre, et intéressante. Je mets celle là parce qu'elle est aussi très facile à écouter. Contrairement à pas mal d'autres choses généralement quand elles sont inconnues. - daft_babylone"
  • Superorganism - Something For Your M.I.N.D. (Alternative / Londres) "Alors ça je pense que c'est pas connu du tout, ça vient d'un groupe qui a même pas encore sorti d'album, d'ailleurs on sait même pas qui compose ce groupe, c'est vraiment trippant, rafraîchissant, ça sonne comme le futur, mais pas celui de la science fiction, celui de demain, et j'ai vraiment hâte de voir ce qu'ils nous donneront à l'avenir. - Facethetruthbiatch"
  • Renaissance - Kiev (Rock/USA) "Un très très beau morceau de 1973 qui commence sur une magnifique ouverture au piano, avant de se transformer en un rock à la Pink Floyd croisé avec un poil de Beatles. Renaissance n'a pas connu le succès mérité, en tout cas moi j'aime beaucoup (je es ai découverts dans les vinyles de mon père héhé) - Amiral_poitou"
  • Zymosis - Awakening (Russie/Psybient) "Ca c'est VRAIMENT inconnu. Ce gars, Zymosis, c'est un russe qui fait de la zik qui s'apparenterait à du Psybient (mon style de prédilection). Mais c'est super bien produit, très propre, et la zik en question que j'ai link a une progression vraiment bonne. La première partie est nickel, et la deuxième est sublime ! Définitivement un gros coup de coeur que j'ai eu en la découvrant. Exactement le genre d'artiste dont j'achète l'album en physique pour le soutenir. - daft_babylone"
  • Late Of The Pier - Focker (Punk/Angleterre) "Alors c'est pas complètement inconnu parce qu'ils ont eu leur petit succès à l'époque mais ils n'ont fait qu'un album il y a presque 10 ans et à chaque fois que j'en parle autour de moi personne ne connait. Le genre est difficile à déterminer, je vais partir sur un audacieux electrogarage-glampunk. Je vous recommande vivement l'écoute de leur unique album Fantasy Black Channel qui est un petit bijou notament Heartbeat et Broken. Le leader Sam Dust a fondé par la suite le groupe LA Priest qui a eu plus de succès. - Shalli"
  • Moondog - Paris (Musical/Allemagne) "Puisqu'on est dans les artistes inconnu, je vous propose un musicien aveugle du siècle dernier et mort dans la misère qui est devenu moins inconnu récemment : Moondog, puis comme on est sur /france prenons "Paris" ! - Sir_aleister"
  • Kingston Wall - Nepal (Rock psyché - Finlande) "Je ne sais pas si on peut classifier ce groupe comme peu connu, mais j'avais découvert ce groupe un peu par hasard. Ce morceau est une ballade où on passe lors des mouvements dans différents états après une prise de champi hallu. J'aime beaucoup les gros riffs de basses. - pepin_nucleaire"
  • Alan Sorrenti - Figli delle stelle (Pop / Italie) "Tiens, il faudra que je fasse une playlist transalpine. En attendant, chanson parfaite pour débouler sur la route du Soleil, le mulet au vent, entre les collines du Sud. Je ne sais pas tellement pourquoi j'aime autant ce morceau mais il y a un truc. Entre le riff entêtant, le refrain kitchissime et le rythme super entraînant, je ne vois aucun défaut à ce son qui aurait pu avoir un succès fou fusse-t-il traduit à l'époque. je ne doute pas cependant que les paroles sont d'un cruche inégalé - amiral_poitou"
  • Madeleine Bell - That's what friends are for (Funk/USA) "Un de mes morceaux favoris du genre et pourtant inconnu au bataillon : la version Music for Dancefloor, avec la deuxième choriste est parfaite. Encore une fois je suis accroché comme un gosse aux variations dans le phrasé et par une basse qui sait ce qu'elle fait. Amiral_Poitou"
  • Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Stones of the years (Rock Pogressif / Grande-Bretagne) "Un extrait d'une pièce de 20 minutes pendant laquelle Keith Emerson, accompagné de ses compères de toujours, nous emmène à la découverte de Tarkus, une sorte de tank-tatou, s'en va en guerre. Si vous voulez les voir en live, c'est trop tard : depuis l'année dernière, il ne reste que Carl Palmer :-( - Bernardg51"
  • Second Layer - Zero (1981 - Royaume-Uni) (Post-Punk)
    "Groupe méconnu de la scène post-punk, et pourtant composé du chanteur et du bassiste d'un groupe légendaire, The Sound. On retrouve la voix si charismatique d'Adrian Borland (sa carrière solo est aussi très intéressante) sur du post-punk très brut et minimaliste. - diyod "
  • David Helbock Trio - The Soul (2016 - Autriche) (Jazz contemporain) "Pianiste de jazz peu connu, à vrai dire je l'ai découvert uniquement en flanant sur la chaîne youtube d'ACT, maison de disque indépendante spécalisée dans le jazz. - diyod "
  • Gravenhurst - The Prize (2012 - Royaume-Uni) (Folk / Slowcore) "Gravenhurst était un groupe assez classique sur la scène Slowcore (un style de rock calme et de jolis mélodies, pensez Red House Painters ou Low), mené par la voix de Nick Talbot (qui rappelle vaguement celle de Steven Wilson). Nick Talbot est décédé en 2014 à l'âge de 37 ans. - diyod "
  • Mocky - Time Inflation (Message to R2) (2015 - Canada) (Funk) "J'aime bien, ça ressemble beaucoup à ce qu'a pu faire Gonzales sur Ivory Tower par exemple. Découvert grâce à FIP. - diyod "
  • Teisutis Makačinas - Tau,Tėvyne (Disko / Lithuania) "Puisqu'il y a de la disco de l'Est voilà le résultat de la rencontre de Kraftwerk et des demoiselles de Rochefort derrière le rideau de fer."
  • Minh Xuân & Phượng Hoàng - Mặt Trời Đen (Rock / Vietnam) "Trouvé sur une compil de rock 70's de Saigon. Ca sonne crust comme pas permis. J'adore."
  • Charanjit Singh - Raga Bhairav (Ragadisco/Inde) "Dans un autre style, LA découverte de mon weekend! Musicien indien du XXème qui a eu la bonne idée de créer "Synthesizing: Ten Ragas To A Disco Beat". Cela donne un résultat hautement psychédélique mais aussi très electro/disco/acid. J'ai été surpris par la modernité de cet album de 1982. Parfait pour les débuts, milieux, fins et lendemains de soirées!"
  • Radio Moscow - 250 Miles (Blues) "Derrière ce nom bizarre se cache un groupe de blues psyché assez fou, découvert dès 2008 et vu en live dans une salle de 50 Personnes dans la banlieue industrielle de Montpellier. Cette chanson est issue de leur second album (leur meilleur selon moi) et est une pépite de crescendo avec un final qui s'emballe et un solo de guitare plutôt superbe. "
  • Louis XIV - Illegal Tender (Brit-Rock / GB) "Encore un groupe au nom étrange, Louis XIV pour jouer une espèce de brit-rock aux paroles ultra salaces. Tout le premier album est une tuerie, mais le rythme entrainant de cette track en fait ma préférée. C'est mon go-to groupe quand ça cherche à jouer au plus hipster, je suis à 0 personnes rencontrées qui connaissaient pour l'instant."
  • Colonel Abrams - Trapped (Disco-House/GB) "Bon ça c'est moins inconnu de l'autre côté de la Manche, mais c'est génial, et ça mériterait d'être encore plus connu. C'est surtout plutôt oublié et personne ne connaît ça au Sud de Calais."
  • Death - Politicians In My Eyes (Proto-Punk / USA) "Ces chers monsieurs en provenance de Détroit ont enregistré cet album révolutionnaire en 1973, mais il ne fut jamais distribué, car ayant refusé de changer le nom du groupe. Mais leurs enfants on redécouvert en 2009 dans le grenier l'album, puis y'a eu un documentaire, z'ont trouvés un label, c'est devenu pas mal connu grâce à un documentaire "A Band Called Death", mais pendant plusieurs décennies, et même encore aujourd'hui, c'est un chef oeuvre inconnu..."
  • Gazpacho - Hell freezes over Part II (Rock Prog / Norvège) "Du rock progressif d'un groupe norvégien un peu confidentiel. Le chant est assez envoutant et la musique très atmosphérique. Un peu comme Beach House, en plus rock."
  • The Trinikas - Remember Me (Soul / USA) "Un groupe dans la veine des girls groups de la fin 60s-début 70s qui est passé totalement sous le radar d'autant plus qu'il a pas fait grand chose d'autre que le single "Black is Beautiful". Par contre, quel single! ya toute la funk des années 70s en un single et avec une énergie et une mélancolie très bien dosée. Un vrai chef-d'oeuvre inconnu donc. Pllus d'info ici sur la (très courte et tragique) histoire de ce groupe pourtant promis à un grand avenir"
  • Otomo Yoshihide's New Jazz Orchestra - Eureka (Jazz/Experimental / Japon) "Une découverte que j'ai fait en trainant sur plug.dj à l'époque. Cette musique est vraiment particulière car elle part d'une sorte de ballade jazzy suave (paroles en français d'ailleurs ?) à un énorme chaos dont on ne peut pas vraiment déterminer le moment où il a commencé, à la fin c'est juste du bruit j'adore."
  • Dün - Arrakis (Zeuhl / France) "Tout simplement un monument du genre. Avec ce riff insidieux bien typique du style qui se laisse désirer pendant de longues minutes. Une accélération qu'on ne voit pas venir avant d'arriver vers la folie martelée par la puissance de la ligne de basse. Je reviens toujours à ce titre."
  • Koenjihyakkei - Grembo Zavia (Zeuhl / Japon) "Là franchement bienvenue dans la folie du zeuhl Japonais rien à dire de plus c'est juste complétement malade."
  • Wishbone Ash - Warrior / Throw down the sword (Hard rock / UK) "Un groupe relativement connu des fans de hard rock mais qui je pense mérite sa place ici. Deux titres qui vont de pair dans un super album que je conseille vivement, un solo de deux guitares incroyable. C'est vraiment le summum de ce groupe je trouve (d'ailleurs j'ai vu du renaissance dans la playlist le guitariste à joue dans ashes are burning qui est très bon aussi)"
BONUS : les bonnes chansons par ceux qui ont pas lu la description de la playlist
  • Magma - Soleil D'Ork (Jazz-rock Fusion/ France) "1976, un morceau de Jannick Top, planant mais puissamment rythmé par une basse très teintée par l'époque. Un heureux mélange à mes oreilles. - Luk---"
  • Frank Zappa - Inca Roads (Rock Experimental / USA) "La piste qui ouvre l'album One Size Fits All, qui est un album qui se veut une parodie des albums de Rock Prog de l'époque. J'ai mis le lien vers la version live qui est de très bonne qualité et qui comprend les mêmes solos de guitare et Fender Rhodes que la version album, grâce à la technique utilisée par Zappa et appelée xénochronie. Bernardg51"
  • The Mars Volta - Frances the Mute (Rock / USA) "La chanson qui aurait dû ouvrir l'album du même nom, mais qui, faute de place sur le CD, a été écartée. Même parmi les fans du groupe, il y en a peu qui la connaisse. Bernardg51"

2017.02.25 04:07 -underdog- Mars Argo on spotify?

I just did a search for her on spotify today and it lead me to this page. Shes listed as a user and not an artist and all she has is some public playlists. Does anyone know if this is really her? Sorry if this has already been discussed.
