Marina & The Diamonds - Froot

On the song “Savages”: “I’m not a political person at all, but I am interested in society. And seeing rape culture explode over the past few years and be pretty much in the news every single day is sickening. It’s more about trying to start a conversation on why these things are in our human traits. Because they are natural to us even though it’s really hard to hear. No one wants to say that rape is natural, but it’s something that’s been embedded in us, and it’s horrendous. So that inspired that song.”

NO, Marina.

And I thought she upset me when she said she didn't like Funk.

I think she obviously didn't word up what she wanted to say correctly.

She does that a lot...Which is kinda ironic somehow for a songwriter.

Has anyone in the US had trouble finding this album in store? My 3 indie record stores always have her albums, and all of them didn't even know it was coming out today. They all had the release date as April 6, and Target didn't have it either.

Oh, and isn't Kendrick just number 1 on preorders? Marina's the top album that's actually 'out'.

I've never really "got" Marina but I've always found a few tracks on her previous albums that I've loved. This morning, one of my best friend excitedly messaged me on Facebook and insisted I listened to "Blue". OH MY GOD.... what kind of brilliance.

I hadn't felt the need to give Froot a try until now and I know full well what I'll be listening to this evening. I'm now perched to "get" Marina.

From the Digital Spy review....

If the crowning of be-hatted soul dullard James Bay as this year's Brits Critics' Choice winner marked the final nail in the coffin of modern music's male singer-songwriter - a group seemingly solely occupied with bland middle class white boys with relationship angst - then over in the XX chromosome camp, the girls are currently killing it, personality-wise.

A perfect read of Sam Smith et al. Let their decline and Marina's ascent begin.

I'm really liking the album after a few listens, but I find Happy an odd song to open the album with!
 
Interesting interview on BBC here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-31838270

Until this bit:



Get over yourself.

Dear, Marina. Don't get me wrong, your full creative control over your third album is universally acclaimed and appreciated. But sometimes You need somebody by your side, a saviour, like that "so-called" co-writer to tell you: "Gurl, these "Immortal" lyrics are so fucking bad, that it makes me want to choke myself to death on some feta and olives... Come on, sit down, listen to your first album three times in a row, eat some muffins and stop muffing. Call me then, I'll be back to help you get this shit together. Oh, God... I meant... Zeus."

Cool!

The FAQing hell was kind of boring, but nice that she plans to do another one. The Joey guy should have some of his own questions.
