i get it she listened to some barely listened to indie records during quar and was like "omg i am inspired" i get it. but listening to lesser known artists, putting your own little twist on lyrics already written and then literally rebranding yourself to sell said art...— tomberlin (@tomberlin) July 24, 2020
it is just lazy of us to applaud lazy work. there is so much INCREDIBLE and WILD NEW MUSIC (@katie_dey has an deep record just waiting to be explored) but like sure spend your day listening to ts's version of lyrics that already exist— tomberlin (@tomberlin) July 24, 2020
i'm not against tswift. happy for her getting to control her own shit now. that is a huge step for any musician let alone a ~woman~ but i feel like we need to really think about how we pay attention to artists in the pop realm who blatanly copy ideas of lesser known artists— tomberlin (@tomberlin) July 24, 2020
it is boring and lazy lazy work. anyway next bandcamp day is august 7th. buy some unknown music, or that record you never heard of but your friend told you about that you said you'd listen to, and support artists that actually need it.— tomberlin (@tomberlin) July 24, 2020
Sarah Beth Tomberlin, who releases music under Tomberlin, called out Taylor Swift for being inspired by other indie musicians. 'At Weddings' is her debut album, which was released on Conor Oberst's label, Saddle Creek.
Feels that Swift was inspired by some of her lyrics in particular. Others have also compared the album to the likes of Phoebe Bridgers.
