Liv Larsen: Welcome back to Trending, sorry about the long hiatus. It’s Liv here, and today I’m with…
Yona Ketema: Hey, I’m Yona.
Henry Cheney: I’m Henry.
Peter Michel: And I’m Peter.
LL: We’re gonna be talking about some new music, some old music, whatever you guys are listening to. Do any of you guys have a song you want to start with?
YK: This new 100 gecs song came out. I like it a lot. Go get that.
LL: Yeah, with Charli XCX, Rico Nasty, and Kero Kero Bonito right?
YK: Yeah, it’s great.
LL: And when did that come out? Yesterday?
YK: Yeah. The 24th of February.
LL: What do you like about it Yona?
YK: I kinda miss 100 gecs. They haven’t dropped since the Injury Reserve remix, I think, so I’m really happy about this new stuff.
PM: When was the Injury Reserve remix?
YK: I don’t remember. It was last year for sure. I know that.
LL: Wait Yona you like 100 gecs?
YK: Yeah, do you like 100 gecs?
LL: Oh ok. Well, I’ve tried to listen to their music, and I just cannot get into it at all. It’s like lowkey nails on a chalkboard.
YK: Did you like the new song though?
LL: I love the new song, and it’s confusing me because I’m not used to liking their music, but I think it’s because I like Charli XCX and Kero Kero Bonito and Rico. You put them in a song, even though it’s a weird mix, can it really go wrong?
LL: It cannot go wrong.
YK: There are no bad performances on it.
LL: I would have to agree with you on that one.
YK: It’s a strong 10.
HC: The part where they ask Charli to do the chorus again is kinda cringe.
YK: That’s iconic. It’s tweetable. It’s iconic. It will go down in history.
HC: It’s not tweetable my guy.
YK: Charli and numerous other Twitter accounts I follow, have already tweeted it.
HC: That’s so ugly.
YK: It’s not ugly.
LL: Henry, what have you been listening to?
HC: What have I been listening to?
HC: Oh jeez. Uh, line?
LL: Well you seem to have a lot of hot takes.
PM: Yeah, so whip it out. What do you got?
HC: I’ve been listening to…
LL: Right now I give you your phone, and I’m like “put on a song, any song.”
PM: We passed the aux to you.
HC: The Grimes album. It’s pretty crazy.
LL: Clark’s proud of you for that one, I’m sure.
HC: She doesn’t like it though.
LL: What? She doesn’t?
YK: Her new one.
HC: She said it wasn’t her best.
LL: Wow. What do you think? How do you think it compares?
HC: Compares? Well, I haven’t listened to all of the Grimes’ albums, but I think this one is pretty good.
LL: Thank you Henry, very cool. What about you Peter?
PM: Well, I like… One album that I am listening to right now that is very good is Czarface Meets Metal Face.
YK: Ah, yes.
PM: Truly a number one song and album, and I really like it because it’s MF Doom, and MF Doom is probably one of my favorite artists. Then, he also has Czarface on that album which is sort of… A lot of people say that he’s kind of a copycat of MF Doom, and they’re kind of right, but I think that because they’re very similar, they complement each other very well, and it is one of my most listened to albums right now.
LL: Awesome, do you have anything else Yona? Any other songs?
YK: New King Krule album. Go get that. Man Alive! Man of vibe. Go get that, yep.
LL: Awesome, thank you guys so much for being on Trending.
PM: Of course.
HC: I actually have a plug.
LL: Go ahead. We would love to hear it.
HC: Buy Snapple.
YK: Wait, the tea?
PM: Snapple is not a tea Yona.
HC: Snapple is not a tea my guy.
LL: Yeah it is?
PM: It’s like a juice thing.
YK: Dude, I swear it’s iced tea. It’s like Arizona.
PM: Let me look up Snapple.
LL: It’s juice?
PM: It’s definitely juice.
LL: Thank you for listening to Trending.
HC: They sponsored me. It’s juice.
PM: It’s tea and juice.
LL: Thank you so much for listening to Trending. Please comment whether you think Snapple is tea or juice.
PM: It’s a fact though. Look it up.
