Kylie Minogue STILL Gives the Gays What They Want

Apparently, Kylie has pulled further ahead of Little Mix in the UK mid-weeks. Today is the last day of sales/streams that will count toward that potential historic #1 in the UK. Hits Daily Double's building album chart (for the US) currently as her at #23. Will be interesting if she does end up landing close to that on the official Billboard 200.

She's done well with US promo this era. I think the lock downs and restrictions have actually helped her in a promotional sense.

She's still plugging Magic. I wonder if the general public like it.

There are so many fantastic options for the next single! I can't decide which is the best choice?????

by Anonymousreply 10November 12, 2020 8:41 PM

She seems to be plugging both Say Something and Magic, depending upon the booking. She performed Say Something on Good Morning America and an Aussie show, Magic on Graham Norton and Colbert. Probably smart. She's not going to bother the top of the singles charts again, but obviously she's still a big album seller.

by Anonymousreply 11November 12, 2020 8:44 PM

That's a strange moment in the Colbert clip where, after she goes upstage and is thrown into silhouette, she returns downstage with the mic pointed heavenwards while her lead vocal plays on without her...

R12 - She's singing live, but she's obviously singing to a backing track. There are no live musicians on that appearance or on Graham Norton. Her recorded track is her "backup singers" for these appearances.

R13 - It seems some people do. I don't get it. It's perfectly... pleasant, serviceable. But the album has so much good stuff, I can move past that one pretty easily.

The Basement Jaxx is digital only at the moment. I think it can be previewed on iTunes etc. I'm not sure if it will be on the Japan edition CD, which hasn't been released yet.

R16 - I don't know what to tell you. Kylie isn't Brittany. I've watched that same clip and can very clearly hear her singing over the backing track. She's been doing this for so long, she's very good at making the "blend". I've seen her in concert a couple of times, once in a very intimate venue for a warm-up thingy and she always sings live and while no vocal powerhouse, she uses her voice adeptly. Because of how produced the sound of pop music is, most of the pop gals sing to backing tracks in concert and on TV performances. Sometimes they overdo that backing track -- Kylie included -- but she is one of the better ones.

R15 - The Jaxx remix is okay. Not their finest work. I'm not sure it was the right song for them to remix, to be frank. The manic nature of Monday Blues or the higher camp of Last Dance or Where Does The DJ Go might have been a better match for them.

R41 - it's weird. I don't necessarily think that Pitchfork review was, technically, inaccurate or unfair. But, I think the writer failed to understand the spirit of what "Kylie" means to her core audience. Yes, she flirts with the experimental and the highly sophisticated (more in concert, than on record,) but either way, that's never been at the heart of who she is. You're not going to get a Roisin Murphy or Goldfrapp or Jesse Ware album from Kylie. She's going to camp it up and get rather 'obvious' in the lyrics, but she's so damn charming it works. It probably wouldn't work with another singer the way it does with her. It's also probably true that Brits and Europeans have a higher... threshold for camp than Americans.

(Also, sidebar, I'm not sure if this will get me thrown in Datalounge jail, but, I like both Kylie and Madonna and they serve such different needs, I don't feel much need to compare them.)

I think it's reductive to say something like "Kylie is camp! This is camp! This is fun! Why aren't you having fun!?" The vast majority of the new songs are uninspired.

Kylie got to number one through sheer force of goodwill from the public, people LIKE her and her music and, unlike Leatherface, Kylie didn't have to resort to including Disco as part of a concert package to up her numbers.

Madame X needed those Madame X Tour packages to sell anything because nobody gives a shit about Madonna's music anymore.

Even including Maluma on Medellin did nothing.

The only thing we'll see for Madonna's music future is her executive producer credit for her boyfriend's flop album which will end up in bargain bins.

If Madonna retired after Ray of Light, Music or Confessions On a Dance Floor then she would be unmatchable in pop discography. But nope had to keep releasing flop after flop.

With the exception of that awful country album Golden and that mess Kiss Me Once, Kylie has more or less had enough sense to stick with what she knows people want from her: pop/dance music.

Kiss Me Once was a mess (thanks Jay Z) but Golden needed to be done and was a smashing success for her. Had she simply pumped out another dance album after Kiss Me Once she wouldn’t be having the success she’s having again now. She needed a break and needed to shake things up. It was getting stale. I actually went back to Body Language recently and forgot what an incredible album that was.

BMG really seems to work well for her. They’ve made two albums now hits and really promote her. The mess of Kiss Me Once had her cleaning house. She dropped her label and management. She was shocked how behind the times they were when it came to social media and streaming. Now she’s basically an indie artist but with a publishing company that also acts like a label.

Yeah, maybe, R79, I meant more about that strategy of extending the DISCO campaign into next year by re-releasing a special edition of DISCO (just like Dua did with Future Nostalgia) so that she tees up a 2022 tour nicely.

I know what you said.

Oh, no, to be clear, I did not think she should do this to attract younger audiences. That's not going to happen -- certainly not beyond the gays. But only as a way to extend the "DISCO era" as I have to imagine that when she's ready to tour the themes and feel of this album will ensure a very successful return to the concert stage. It would be a way to do this without waiting for the next 'proper' studio album era.

R81 you don't think Kylie or her collaborators could put out an album with samples and references similar to Dua's? The most recent sample on Dua's was 2006, so there wasn't any "youth" movement going on per se. Also, it was remixed by a DJ, not Dua herself, so how much input did she have with the samples and references? Madonna, Missy and Gwen Stefani are not cutting edge features either.

Kyle could ring up Giorgio Moroder and whip up something that would rival or surpass what the Blessed Madonna put out. Her Disco album is begging for a Moroder makeover. Dua's album sounded good on paper, but the execution was a bit of a snooze imho.

by Anonymousreply 96November 18, 2020 9:17 PM

No, no, and no. What no one seems to be pointing out is what makes Disco stand out is that she didn't go the easy route: she didn't throw two or three disco covers on there, she didn't use samples from Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor or KC and the Sunshine Band, and she didn't bring in Giorgio Moroder or Nile Rogers--both of whom she's worked with in the past. She created something new without leaning on recycling the old. No samples, no Moroder, no anything Dua Lipa or whoever else may be doing. Let Kylie be Kylie. That chasing other artist's sounds is why US labels always fuck her up.

by Anonymousreply 97November 18, 2020 9:45 PM

R96 my interpretation of the magic of Dua's remix album is all the dinosaurs are somehow reanimated through the alchemy of a young person at the core. I have said this several times. When old stars try to get that dance energy on their own, they cannot, ever. Pet Shop Boys can make a great disco album in their 50s but not a transcendent one. Roisins new album is much better than Kylies. Clever, chic and inventive. But older will always pale next to youth's energy in such productions. The young ones aren't better music but they are fresh.

A good dance album isn't easy. I don't like Lady Gaga but she did a good one this year. Not a great one.

[quote]“I am beyond excited to reveal that the legendary Kylie will be performing with me,” Lipa told the newspaper.

[quote]“She is one of my all-time heroes and female artists and the idea of collaborating with her is what pure dreams are made of. I adored her headlining show at Glastonbury and can’t wait for her to join us at Studio 2054.”

[quote]It comes just a day after the Australian pop icon named Lipa as someone she’d like to collaborate with on new music.

[quote]Kylie joins the other previously-announced special guests for Studio 2054, including FKA Twigs, Bad Bunny and J Balvin. As well as performing songs from her latest album ‘Future Nostalgia’, its remix ‘Club Future Nostalgia’ and her self-titled debut, a press release said fans can expect to see Lipa “move through custom-built sets, surreal tv shows, roller discos, ecstatic raves, trashy rocker hangouts, voguing ballrooms and diva style dressing rooms”.

I would not have pegged our gal Kylie being on the cutting edge of digital marketing, but this sounds pretty interesting.

[quote]Today, Kylie announces a brand new music experience titled ‘Disco Spirit’, a chance to be truly immersed in her music wherever you are via augmented reality for a limited time. Fans can access this via Kylie’s Instagram. ‘Disco Spirit’ will launch tomorrow 26th November at 7pm GMT. Fans will be able to access the experience through Instagram that will see the ‘Disco Spirt’ arrive and perform “Real Groove” as a glittering, ethereal spirit via augmented reality for one hour after which the filter will remain for fans to enjoy wherever they are. Instructions of how to use the filter will be available via Kylie’s Instagram Stories.

[quote]Kylie says: “Come dance with my Disco Spirit! I loved working on this project and having a sparkling avatar embody the spirit of my album, ‘Disco‘, is an absolute thrill; to be the first of its kind on Instagram is very exciting!”.

[quote]Kylie and her team worked together with Facebook’s Creative Shop to craft this unique experience, a global music first on Instagram, using Spark AR and Instagram technology. Drawing on the themes and visuals of the album, the visual style was conceptualised and adapted to 3D space and tailored for Spark AR and the Instagram platform. The avatar was carefully modelled to embody the spirit of disco by Simone (Creative Digital Studio), and then driven using motion captured dance moves. Handing this asset to Creative Shop, Facebook used in-house audio production to remix the track and tailor it to fit a performance narrative, and then assembled the experience inside Spark AR.

Gotta say, again, BMG is killing it with the Kylie promo.

Credit where credit is due - Kylie has done an amazing job of building up and maintaining her fan base in America. Since 2000 that five of her albums have landed somewhere on the top 50 US charts generally is pretty consistent considering she did not gain much of a foothold early in her career. Of course, that her new record went to No #1 in the UK and Australia with ease gives her more time for her other markets.

Kylie looks and sounds really good at R9's link on Colbert. (quite heavily nasal toned in the lower vocal register verses or is that autotune?).

The song is OK - certainly one of the better of her recent releases.

That said - I have always liked Kylie as a person. She a super nice person and squeaky clean - similar to Olivia. Dannii has the better voice of the two and is more attractive in my opinion. But her career certainly isn't even in the same league as Kylie's career and never will be. Kylie has done amazingly well for herself but has never had any luck with the blokes though.

R157 & R164 - actually the Kim character is based on Kylie Minogue. Not Dannii Minogue.

“My idea, especially with Kim, is that I like to dress her in what is available in the malls at the moment,” Stuckey told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“So I shop in the ‘cheap and cheerful’ women’s type shops and get the worst of that end of the fashion.

“Basically, it’s like any girl who’s reading the women’s magazines and seeing what Kylie Minogue is wearing and aiming for that, but not quite making it, as many aren’t — there’s a million Kims walking around shopping malls!”

Madonna's version was horrible and I say this as a huge Madonna fan. I hate the song in general, but I think Kylie's is the best version, even better than Eartha's.

I like both Madonna and Kylie (and have met both in person) and I FUCKING HATE SANTA BABY! I HATE BOTH THEIR VERSIONS WITH A FIERY PASSION!!

I think I just hate "sexy" Christmas songs. Kylie's is awful because they have soundclips of her moaning or gasping sexually throughout the song. Truly disgusting. Just makes my skin crawl, and I love the Kylie songs "Sexcersize" which is basically her moaning for 3 minutes.

Madonna's is slightly better because she's singing in kind of a cheesy Broadway style with a weird NY accent.

I agree, R206 and R207 -- disco (lower case "d") is obviously a sweet spot for Kylie, so extending the era with another album or a remix album makes perfect sense. I mean, Dua herself has shown the success of that model this year. I'm not suggesting Kylie would ever approach Dua's chart/streaming success at this stage in her career -- just that she could extend the Disco (capital "D") era this way.

There are so many more skilled producers she could work with. And, with the commercial success of Disco, I'd hope she'd be a little more open to longer, more expansive and atmospheric disco tracks.

I got tired of the album pretty quickly, but enjoyed it when it came out. If I were here, I'd put out a Disco 2 pretty quickly.

She's apparently working with Jessie Ware on something. (Source: interviews with Jessie Ware)

Dance for Darling is the next single. Apparently a new, updated single mix of the song, with some new vocals, has been sent to radio.

Yes! Hopefully a video, as well. A single only really feels like a single when its got a video.

I love Dance Floor Darling. Gotta love that tempo change.

by Anonymousreply 236March 30, 2021 6:06 AM

I had a live stream of BBC radio playing today in the background and randomly heard Dance Floor Darling. No idea if there's a way to listen to it on demand, but it is definitely a new mix. I only heard it once, so forgive me if I misheard anything, but I think....

- The pre-tempo-change part of the song (the first 2/3) is actually now at a slightly faster pace -- slightly less mid-tempo. It's subtle, but noticeable if you're used to the album version. This actually makes the change to the latter 1/3's tempo change a little less bonkers... it feels a touch more organic. But the song doesn't feel rushed at all.

- The production has been 'amped up" throughout -- it feels a little more muscular, there are added drum fills, fatter synths and some general "sheen" added to the production (but if you liked the original, you'll still like this.. perhaps even more)

- I'm 99% sure she's recorded some new vocals throughout. At different points of the track her vocals feel more prominent and she's recorded new ad libs. Her voice feels more "forward" in the mix -- which is a good thing.

I'm not always a fan of single mixes, but I think they've done a nice job on this one.

About time they release a decent single. Unfortunately I worry it may be too late to revive interest at this point.

How bland R243.

by Anonymousreply 244April 24, 2021 9:22 AM

I have never been able to get into her.

She seems very likable as a person, but every time I have tried to like her music because it seems like everyone else does, all I hear is generic dance music with meaningless lyrics.

She's always compared to Madonna, but like her or not, all of Madonna's music makes statements, and I just don't hear anything but cooing "la la la la la la lala" when I listen to Kylie.

What am I missing?

Are there going to be anymore DISCO singles or is it all wrapped up? Seems like she kinda packed up the campaign to go back to Australia and spend time with her family. Don't blame her, obviously. I imagine her parents are getting on.

by Anonymousreply 247April 24, 2021 10:28 AM

R245 I don't know if I'd say *all* of Madonna's music makes statements.

I wouldn't call "Holiday" or "Girl Gone Wild" deep.

by Anonymousreply 248April 24, 2021 10:58 AM

R248 I didn't say deep, but most of her music does say *something,* at least after her first couple of albums--not including Holiday and Burning Up, etc.

I agree about Girl Gone Wild and some other songs, including ones I like, like Get Together. But still, they are exceptions in her career. Most of her music says something, and as a person, she never stops making statements.

She is utterly unlikable, but Madonna is interesting. Kylie seems pleasant but uninteresting to me based on what I've heard. I do like the "la la la" song but it's vapid. I feel like Sophie Ellis-Bextor deserves at least the kind of career Kylie Minogue has had.

I think the Disco era is over. What a flop. Sad, because there were some good songs on the album, but they were never singles.

Don't you all get sick of all this comparison shopping? It's possible to simultaneously like more than one pop singer. They're both great.

And, no, Kylie's work has almost never been as serious minded as M's. I think you'll find that Kylie takes her work very seriously, but she doesn't take herself too seriously. It's part of her charm and probably a key to her longevity.

I dont like or dislike Gaga but I hated that song when Gaga did it. . .but I really, REALLY like Kylie cover. This better not get wasted as a promo cut. This should be full-fledged single with video. And if the rumored Disco expanded edition is true, this should be on there, right before Supernova.

by Anonymousreply 266June 11, 2021 9:58 PM

Supernova is the worst song on the album. The lyrics alone are inane - "Shining like a supernova, brightest of the stars. From another galaxy, like Jupiter and Mars."

Honey, Jupiter and Mars are in our galaxy.
