    I sure hope this isn’t the best track on her new album!

    Musicians gonna make music. Doesn’t mean we have to like it... or waste our money on it.

    Meshell never got "quirky", she just went off in a more rock/indie-oriented direction. The quirk tendency has been big lately (Knower and Thundercat come to mind). Sign of the times, perhaps, and definitely not my thing. ES is talented, no doubt about it, but her stuff does nothing for me.

    I liked her Facebook page a while back, and this was posted today. I have not checked YouTube.

    You make fair point about MeShell. She did not get cutesy or quirky. She just went from incredible funk on a Jazz to pumping out root notes on a P-bass.

    So many people are fanboys and fangirls when it comes to artists that they like.
    I have my favorite artists, but I won’t act like everything that my favorite artists has put out is great just because of their names.

    Agree the tune is cool, maybe the vid was mgmt’s idea.

    The video won't work for me either, what is the name of the track, or give us a youtube link

    Ha, I've never found her more interesting. It's almost got a St. Vincent vibe but way better than the stuff St. Vincent's been putting out lately.

    Very heavy and a brave step forward!

    As a casual fan, one of the best things I've heard from her.
  19. I couldn't watch it all the way through. It gave me the heebie jeebies. Reminded me of Christopher Lloyd in "Who Framed Roger Rabbit?"

    A bit odd until the bass came in. I think she is amazing, but that's not my cup of tea.
