Carly Rae Jepsen x Trent Reznor = "Call Me A Hole," by pomDeterrific.

  1. A friend pointed out to me that David Ogilve did the mixing on ‘Call Me Maybe’ so these two songs were perhaps only separated at birth:

    My background in industrial music definitely helped in achieving this. I was trying to get the same feel in ‘Call Me Maybe’ as in a Nine Inch Nails song, making sure it had a pop sensibility, but with people not even noticing how aggressive the kick drum is.

    1. Maybe that’s why I love the song so much and don’t care who knows!

      The song is smarter than people realize, in my opinion.

    1. I heard a nice NPR interview with Trent, and he was a real band camp/high school musical nerd. 

  2. Brings a new breathy, air-like quality to Trent’s searing social commentary.

    I like this. 

  3. Ugh… I needed to clear my ears out by listening to the good version… and get my angry mojo back in order.

  4. I remember my first reaction to NIN was that it was singalong pop music with distortion in some places. Which is fine, but it just makes this less surprising to me.

    I dare someone to find a way to mash up early Swans with… anything. I can’t see how it could be done.
