That’s fucking ridiculously awesome
checked this out after seeing it on some year-end lists that had a lot of other stuff I enjoy and hot damn it's great. didn't like any song after "mustang" as much as I liked that one but still great for a debut (I think this is their debut? correct me if wrong)
vocals remind me of recent foxing at times, is that weird?
Nah I think that comparison’s been made a few times in here and in the NMG thread!
huh maybe the NMG thread is where I'd seen this artist's name before then, because it was vaguely familiar to me before seeing it on lists
Finally got around to this and it sounds like two bands I haven’t heard from in a long time: As Tall As Lions and Open Hand
It's already out for me and it's a Samia cover
Wow cannot wait to hear that
It's good as hell, not like you're surprised
not to triple post but his debut KEXP session is also out and HOLY FUCKING SHIT
The Samia album REALLY clicked with me a couple weeks ago and I really love what Bartees did with that song. Definitely one of my favorites on the album.
2020 Was Bartees Strange’s Year
This has snuck into my top 5 albums of the year.
it’s my AOTY
I just listened to a few songs yesterday and I was into it. I need to listen to the full album ASAP.
He opened for Thursday on their live stream and was so good. I wonder what yours he would have done in 2020, if you know. Feel like his music covers so much ground. He could tour with so many different bands/artists.
The buzz around Live Forever means he could probably tour with a bunch of bands when that's safe to do again and be higher up on bills. Love to see it.
I feel like festivals (if they happen) are gonna be big for him in 2021
I’m honestly not a huge fan of the production on this record but will 100% be at the shows. And the festival circuit would do really well for him this year if we have them
