Man, I love "Jubilee". One of my favorite tracks on the record.
He's asking for suggestions to Dirt Emo Vol. 2 on his instagram
Blood Red Summer
The Great Escape
Settle Down (TDS)
Sure hope he doesn't listen to all the people suggesting Brand New songs ugh
hear you me
bump for this record, which I listen to daily and is probably my AOTY (sorry Pheebs)
or some days (like today), twice daily lol
I really like how this record is the sunnier, poppier companion to Dying Star, like the latter resembles the dead of night and the former the morning after.
There's no way this album isn't on my top 10 aoy list. Likely top 5.
I'm late to the party but this album is incredible. Been a daily listen for a week now and just keeps getting better every time.
A+, no notes
O wow, give me more of that.
pretty easily gonna end up being in my top 3 EOTY, and under the sun might be SOTY
Still reasonably confident that this is my favorite album that's come out this year.
It’s a toss up between Ruston Kelly, Bright Eyes, & Brian Fallon for me.
Right now I got this at 4 or 5. It’s been an absurdly strong year for singer songwriters.
Still need that live version or studio version of hellfire so I can play into oblivion. Thanks Rusty.
Definitely a top 10 contender.
whats the rest look like?

3. Taylor Swift - Folklore*
4. Katie Pruitt - Expectations*

awesome list! I just realized like a week ago that Nation of Language was the guy from Static Jacks and I’m so happy to have his songwriting back.
I love Nation of Language's debut so much. I've been saying to anyone who will listen that if you found that record in a bin and were told it was the greatest hits of a lost 80s new wave band, they'd 100% believe you. Should check out Static Jacks.
