    The vocal delivery is almost too similar to The National at times, but musically this is really great.

    I don't think I've heard another band with a vocalist that sounds this similar to Matt - right down to everything from tone to melodies - but the music is so different from anything The National has made that I actually think him sounding nearly identical creates something fascinating. An alternate reality version of The National that will never exist lol.

    I also think of this seemingly forgotten classic from 2015 every time I throw this record on.

    Been meaning to make a thread for this, glad someone else did. This record is easily a top five of the year for me, just nonstop bangers for fans of New Order. It’s like the greatest hits record for a lost band.

    Bump because this record is one of the best of the year and not enough people know about it.

    Just discovered this. I guess it's pretty derivative but I'm really enjoying it.

    The Wall & I is a delightful closer.
