    Peasant is one of the most confounding and brilliant albums in recent memory and I could not be more excited for this

    Peasant is one of the gnarliest albums i've ever heard i think, and this song is unsettling in a different way. really excited for it.

    What a strange and interesting song

    Where do I know this voice from? Reminds me a bit of the guy from Everything Everything

    An accessible Richard Dawson record is still a very fucking weird record but oh god I love it

    This album is unreal. I reaaalllly need the lyrics sheet but idk if he's even releasing one.

    Between this and Big Thief, time for me to feel really weird.

    Yeah I can’t wait to sit down with the lyrics, seems like a blend of witty one liners and some really sad narratives, he’s such a singular artist

    Yeah, i put him up there with, like, Silo’s Choice and Joanna Newsom and mewithoutYou as lyricists who do really idiosyncratic, one-of-a-kind narrative songwriting.

    This is stunning. My friend took me to see him a year ago and it was a really fun gig but I didn't persevere with his records. The same friend got me to listen to this and WOW. Lyrically amazing and also strangely catchy at times which I'd never expect from his records!

    There has to be more to life than killing yourself to survive

    Glad I listened to Peasant first. This is definitely a bit more straightforward but retains a lot of the same elements found in Peasant that I really enjoyed.

    Can’t believe how catchy “jogging, jogging, I’m jogging, jogging” is haha
