Per his Twitter
Idk if it made it into my interview but he specifically mentioned KennyHoopla while talking about Boomer!
I was just thinking that both Boomer and Kelly are waaaaaaay too compressed and distorted, hurting my enjoyment of a record that is just amazing from a songwriting perspective. The weird "drunk" syncopated hi-hats on Kelly also throw me as well. Otherwise I'm loving this record.
This unsurprisingly fucking rules
Bartees Strange: Live Forever
I had no idea Mustang was in reference to Mustang, OK. I basically lived there for 5 months (Yukon, OK) for work.
FUCK YEAH BRO
Well deserved. I've been listening to this 3-4 times a day. The array of styles and melodies makes the replay value super high.
When's the last time a new artist with like 60k monthly listeners on Spotify got BNM? That's huge for him.
Stone Meadows is going to be the hit here
Yellow Submarine is utterly forgettable, in fairness.
Yea for real. Just listen to Revolver
Quite often tbh. This year alone there was Special Interest, Lyra Pramuk, Beatrice Dillon, KeiyaA, Jyoti (and maybe some others) all of whom have 15k-35k monthly listeners.
Still, it'll be a boost for him. I wasn't sure if they were going to go with the BNM since they had kinda been ignoring him up until this point. Not even a news post about the album announcement.
this is really sticking with me. apple music seems to only be showing a few singles from him other than this album, does he have any other full releases?
The National covers EP - basically expanded into a mini-album retroactively - should be on there too. He released an EP as Bartees and the Strange Fruit a few years back (plus some other stuff which is basically impossible to find); it's on YouTube.
It took me two listens to really make sense of this, but I’m on board. As others have said, it’s wild how much ground this covers in 35 minutes. He has not only the ambition but the talent to back it up.
I want to give credit to the backing band on this record, very tight despite the hazy atmosphere
This is such a fun record!
Every time we get in the car my girlfriend tells me to put on the "deja vu" song by "that bartees guy"
I have this on at work and a customer just acknowledged it! That..does not happen here very often.
One of the 75k listeners!
This is becoming the only thing I want to listen to
