Better Down Where It’s Wetter!

Two fish from the video for The Chemical Brothers - The Salmon Dance

Dude, I don’t care how stupid it is. I dig the new Chemical Brothers video!

“The Salmon Dance”! With scenes straight out of The Little Mermaid, the Brothers educate us on the habits of this tasty animal! Fatlip as a rapping fish is even better than Fatlip as a clown! There’s also a beatboxing blowfish! What’s not to like?

Oh, I guess everything that the above Stereogum readers complain about.

Sure, “The Salmon Dance” isn’t much more beyond the same generic electronic beats (along with some unnecessary vocal processing) that the Brothers have been providing for years. But now it’s playful! I can get behind that.

Plus Finding Nemo makes me weep like a baby.

Tears Of A Clownstep

Because Wikipedia is awful, they have endless articles about Drum and Bass subgenre subgenres!

For example, I really don’t need to know anything about clownstep. But now I do.

As described, clownstep comes off as the Happy Hardcore of Drum and Bass. Yuck! Drum and Bass is painful enough. Listening to a subgenre like clownstep may cause my dick to cut itself off.

I would much prefer if clownstep was actually just music by Fatlip.
