Currents/I Like It When/Vega Intl: The 1975 Write Up

30l2heh.png

Welcome to the Tame Impala/Neon Indian/The 1975 rate! Although these groups might not be that similar in theory, I promise you that I didn’t just put my Spotify on shuffle. With all of their most recent releases, each group shifted their sound and aesthetic to a more playful, colorful, and 80’s inspired album. Currents saw Tame Impala leave The Beatles inspired psychedelic rock for a more synthpop/vaporwave sound. Neon Indian went more mainstream with disco and funk on Vega Intl. Night School compared to his earlier chillwave work. The 1975 went from a black and white aesthetic rock group that plays on automated Tumblr pages to a more ambitious and diverse style on I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It. I definitely appreciate the variety of influences and styles on these and would wish more bands would take note.

Rules
- Rate all the songs with a score between 0-10.
- One song, and one song only, can receive an 11.
- Decimal points are allowed, but don’t take the piss.
- Commentary is more-than welcome!​


Voting is open from now. DEADLINE FOR VOTES IS DECEMBER 17th. I know many people are busy with holidays and finals and rates and other obligations around that time of the year, so just ask if you need an extension!


Interludes/Etc:
These albums have a few interludes and other experimental songs. Personally, since they’re not just speaking or 18 seconds of blank audio, I wouldn’t mind including them but I can see why others would want to skip them over. It’s a niche rate but I don’t want to hurt participation more. I might just have a minigame at the beginning of the rate like @Kuhleezi 's Tinashe rate did unless if you want me to include them. It’s 47 tracks with/41 without so yeah.
Interludes are in italics.

I had been meaning to give Vega a shot last year but it never happened, and I like it... was my personal favourite of last year.

I'm not a fan of Currents though, soz.
 
If 1975 are anything like our other 2 featured artists here I am sure that I will like them and I am in this.

Are they anything like Chain Gang Of 1974? because I have just gotten in to them this whole year.
 
How's everyone doing? I'm almost done with the graphics. I haven't really done any prolific tagging yet and I don't think I've ever submitted a score before the 48 hour mark, but what do y'all think?
