    Only listened to Hissing Fauna, which I think is quite good. This song is nice. He/they(?) are playing at a festival I am going to this weekend, so maybe I'll see how I feel about them beyond that album.

    Regardless of their musical output, or your knowledge of their discography, they are a must-see live. You won't regret it.

    Good to know! They are wedged between DIIV and Robyn, so I'll probably grab some food and check them out from the back.

    This is the absolute truth. I've been to 100+ shows over the years and even though I was only intimate with Hissing Fauna and barely knew their other stuff last August, I saw them play and it's without a doubt a top-five all time show for me. They absolutely blew me away.

    Can't wait for this album.

    Caught about 20-30 min of the set yesterday. It was fun but started to get a bit same-y so I just chilled in the back after. Probably would have enjoyed it a ton if I was a fan and familiar with the bulk of the material.

    if you need help, start with Hissing Fauna, then probably Sunlandic, Satanic, Skeletal and Paralytic? :-)

    I have a feeling Hissing Fauna might blow your freaking MIND
     
  13. tucah

    yep! yep! yep! Prestigious

    +1 start with Hissing Fauna - easily the most essential record, then Satanic and Sunlandic.

    Hissing Fauna is probably their best, bust Lousy with Sylvianbriar knocking on the door.

    actually we haven't missed it yet. Scanned those tour dates really quickly and thought I read 7-24.

    This album's pretty good! Not many WOW moments on first listen, but I really dig the vibe of it and it's far from bad

    Really into the album before this, but I've been jamming to this the last few mornings and I dig it!

    I think there are some really great tracks in this, particularly in the first half, but I do find it dragging by the end

    probably my fav song on the album
