    this record really really hit me today. like, big time

    it's kind of crazy that it's been almost a year and a half since the sxsw pitchfork article came out. that was enormous because that's when i knew that they were actually legitimately going to blow up. it's just so crazy seeing my pals doing so well and seeing how long since then that was.

    people often think that when i talk about me being friends with the band and other bands it's all just bragging, but it really is just out of genuine love and respect for people i care about. i've known ray for four years and seen all the other bands he's been in, lindsey and alex for two years at a snail mail show in a tiny basement, and i've seen them six or seven times in total, seeing them work the songs out and grow in crowd every time. i'm just so insanely happy and proud of them that this record is so good and it's reaching so wide an audience, because they are wonderful people that truly deserve it.

    anyways, yeah. this is a record that you need to take in and let every layer fold back. just really really wonderful as the songs take their own structure and pull you in. it's a real good mood record but at the same time it works for so many different times.

    this really reminds me of Pedro the Lion at times but less slowcore. mostly a vibe thing

    I’d be lying if I said I totally hear it, but I also just love Pedro The Lion so I will agree with you on this no matter what, just for the sake of mentioning Pedro lol

    I'll think about what makes me think that more closely tomorrow and get back at you but I really don't think it's off base it's just harder to pin bc it's not anything obvious I think

    funny thing is i'd be willing to bet lindsey has never listened to (or potentially has even heard of) pedro, haha

    that can't be true, anyone interested in indie rock's lineage would have at least heard of Control/It's Hard to Find a Friend

    it's from a very different angle of indie rock though. like, at least knowing ray's taste, he's super into all the exploding in sound bands and that sort of realm, like he was posting about lvl up and weed and bands like that, while i think pedro sort of falls more under the early JEW/american football realm of indie rock, but far less known. i wouldn't be shocked honestly, i just don't think their influences come from that direction

    I can see how the guitar work in this would remind someone of It’s Hard to Find a Friend.

    Yeah I mean, I don’t know anyone on a personal level so perhaps Casey does have a better feel in that sense, but it does seem a little weird to me to say that someone probably doesn’t listen to X because they really love Y, hah.
    But anyway, I love how distinguishable all the songs sound on this album. It’s cohesive while retaining the ability for every song to have its own identity. That’s the true sign of a great record for me.

    Why wouldn't she have heard of Pedro the Lion? This seems like a strange and co descending assumption to make.

    She played in her church's band when she was younger, right? I bet she's heard of Pedro/Bazan.

    what's condescending about guessing that someone might not have listened to a band? i also think she hasn't listened to dancegavindance, there's nothing condescending about guessing what someone has listened to based on their taste and influences

    maybe i'm wrong! i'm just saying that i wouldn't be surprised based on the scenes and influences i know the band members were apart of

    I’d never listened to Pedro until like 2 weeks ago and only knew who they were because of Julien Baker.

    I think the lesson to be learned here is that everyone should listen to Pedro The Lion (and subsequent work) because David Bazan is one of the best songwriters alive.
