    Embark, Embrace is so good, high hopes for this. Wish they'd do a short run in the states before they're gone, though.

    Sad and awesome news at the same time. I was so happy to catch them in Chicago last spring.

    yeah, this is great. love the poppy direction. some absolutely massive vocal hooks as well as the usual instrumental ones. glad they took risks with this.

    last show the other day was pretty special. band means a lot to a lot of people.

    Popping back in to say that I love this thing. It placed high in my 2016 EOTY list sort after only a few listens because I knew it would grow on me even more -- and it did. Very special album, not a single weak point. Gorgeous arrangements, shining brightly with the assistance of perfectly fitting production. It's so lush, clear and big sounding while still coming off as though the band is playing right in front of you. Obviously a shame we won't hear any more from them, but what a fantastic high to end on! Wish this had been talked about more around the site.

  13. Just got my shipping notification for second pressing of this

    Happily finding out that this feels just as right to listen to in the heat of summer as it does in the cold of winter. Blissed out real hard at the pool the other day to For Karla and Glow

    I haven’t spent as much time with this album as I did their previous ones. Need to change that.

    I've been blanking on that name for the past few minutes. Didn't they have an album that was promoted a lot on a decade ago? It sounds so familiar all of a sudden.

    They may have! You may be thinking of Embark, Embrace from 2013, since I think that was their first Topshelf release. I didn’t become familiar with them until early 2016 when they were openers on a Weatherbox & Prawn tour haha, late to the game

    I've stumbled upon their discog page and this album looks very familiar: Enemies (2) - We’ve Been Talking But I don't remember listening to it.

    I think I'm mistaking them for another band also named Enemies lol

    Womp womp. Reunion show in Dublin, 9/16. Some new shirts up on the Bandcamp but shipping to the states is as much as the shirts themselves. Not optimistic this turns into more, but stoked for the folks over in Dublin! Who knows, maybe we get a live record out of it or something. Have fun @aliens exist!
