New record coming out on Run For Cover. New song and pre-orders on 6/21.
My birthday. Nice.
Stoked for it. Last album was great.
Holy sheeeeeit! Please be as good as PV and better than the last 7"!
I like Humblest Pleasures haha, what don't you like about it?
Cool. Hope it's good, PV is my favorite album of the last several years
cant fucking wait -- loved PV and Humblest Pleasures so much
new song wednesday is the word. cant wait.
Don't have high expectations, but here's to hoping
I worry this will be a victim of high expectations as PV is inside my top 10 albums ever, I just connected with it on such a huge level and it sound tracked roughly a year and a half of my life. I still listen to it weekly at the very least. I can only hope this can be similarly impacting for me now I'm in a better place.
Safe to say its one of my top anticipated this year. I definitely agree with anyone saying it'll be hard to top PV, but my fingers are crossed.
The album art is so sick. Hoping they announce a tour too
I also think the album art is pretty good
Looking forward to Wednesday. Admittedly, I haven't listened to Humblest Pleasures. I should get on that.
I wonder if they'll change their style. Every album released by these guys has been different. Please don't do pop punk again lol.
This is easily one of my most anticipated releases of the year. I still listen to PV regularly.
i think PV was them coming into their own, and hopefully this new one expands on that sound while still keeping the pillars of what made that album great.
This has potential to be great or very bad. I really hope they can continue off the sound of PV without becoming boring. The poppier they can get with this sound the better imo
Would love for them to expand the PV sound in other ways. It'd be cool to hear this sound but more on the aggressive or spacey sides.
I've only recently gotten into these guys, so I'm stoked another record is right around the corner.
I'd be happier with just more pacey songs such as Take My Head. But I trust them to do pretty much whatever at this point.
So, I gave PV a listen today, and kind of wanted to expand on why I don't have any expectations for the new record.
Peripheral Vision is an album that is defined by the time I was obsessed with this album. At the time this album was released, I was in my last few weeks of the final semester of college. I was finished with my internship at the time (which I received an job offer from, and accepted), was only taking 3 classes, and had a bunch of time for *ahem* extracurricular activities.
I spent those final few weeks in a blissful haze, in a cloud I could see no end of, through fault of my own. Usually at the end of particular era of your life, you do a mental recap of everything that preceded it, whether good or bad, accurate or alternative...and this album was the soundtrack for these retrospective, reflective moments.
These songs soundtracked my last late, dewy nights wandering my school, my last school crush, my last beer cheers with my college buddies, and my last days without the weight of the world on my shoulders. I was reluctantly enjoying just being a kid with no responsibilities, before I have all of them. Theses songs still, to this day, bring me strongly back to those days, nights, and very early mornings, and I find it hard to name another album that so accurately brings me back to a specific moment in my life, emotionally and mentally.
I don't think PV is particularly that amazing in any aspects, other than using a very specific asesthetic to its complete and exhausted, but satisfying, end. But it connected with me so well with to those moments, and all the specific memories I can recall as a result of the album, that I consider it extremely important part of my personal music history.
Expecting Turnover to make another album that comes even close to what I experienced with PV is extremely rare, as I am (as expected) a different person and music consumer than I was when this released. All I can really hope for is a solid album that makes a decent dent in my EOTY list. Here's to hoping!
@sawhney[rusted]2 That's a very similar experience to what I had only with my university. I expect this to be of high quality, but I doubt it will ever be able to top the emotional connection I have to wandering that city for a final time before I went back home, and thinking about everything that had happened over those years.
