Pitchfork needs to be shut down.
Is Kevin Barnes tired of sex?
- Bro, two of his songs have sex in the title and he is being slightly subtle with things goddamn these songs can get sexual
The outside influences play the role of Ritalin to Barnes’ ADD, but the leaner sound reveals flaws even as it proposes ways to rebuild.
- Excuse me Jon Brion is a wonderful producer, Janelle Monae’s voice is a beautiful addition to any track, and Solange Knowles compliments his voice fantastically in Sex Karma.
However, Knowles’ appearance, “Sex Karma”, is a straightforward Jacksons pastiche built around the lamest double-entendre in Barnes’ career: the John Mayer-esque leer, “you look like a playground to me.”
- Go fuck yourselves; that line is pure gold
They didn’t even mention You Do Mutilate? or anything about the second half of that song and how perfect its message is to the entire False Priest concept.
Did Pitchfork even listen to this album?
