I started following him when he had that 1st EP and the song Freaks and Geeks. His songwriting was clear and he had a personality. The EP as a whole was good, he sounded authentic and genuine.
Camp was meh. Kind of angry.
Not wearing shoes? That's hippie shit, man. Shoes are straight up useful for our feet.
I have seen interviews with him recently and he acts like he's above it all. Like he's transcended culture with his music. In one he was like sitting cross legged for his interview.
EP was great and so was Camp- both classic Glover. I mean, he's attempting to evolve and establish a creative personality; I see nothing wrong with that. The Beatles, Beyonce and Garth Brooks all had to become different people at one point or another in their careers while trying to separate themselves, so why can't Glover do the same to a lesser extreme?
I just don't see how a lack of shoes or his posture during an interview makes him a "mega pretentious hipster" (despite how useful shoes may be...although, who doesn't go barefoot from time to time).
