    I like this band but something about the guy's lyrics kinda bother me. I think it was on here that someone mentioned how Pinegrove would word all their social media stuff and it's the same with this. It's also possible that I'm completely taking it the wrong way, so could anyone who is particularly into this dude's lyrics point out what I'm missing exactly?

    I'm not sure exactly what you dislike about his lyrics tbh - I don't think he's the best lyricist ever, but I think he's decent with imagery and occasionally captures really universal feelings in his hyper specificity (Lake Erie is his best in this regard imo). see also:

    From the top of Burger Hill, I see
    Smoke that leaves through the chimneys
    The world is untouched and set free
    The way it was meant to be

    When we sing along to Jackson Browne
    You hold your notes a little long
    To let me know that you are with me

    Sometimes I see you in my mind's eye blowing on your coffee
    There were times you weren't as kind as I thought you were
    I don't want to think like that
    I don't want to hold on too tight to the bad
    And I don't want to think like that

    I like the lyrics. Also not getting that Pinegrove comparison at all. I'd be careful looping the two bands together--even hearing that band's name gives me a bad taste in my mouth.

  13. also not to stretch this out but isn't the thing with Pinegrove's social presence like how they're all cutesy and a little infantile and how unsettling it is? not seeing the connection at all

    even more unsettling considering who Evan is and what he's done, fuck off with that twee nonsense when you shouldn't have a career anymore

    also, since I'm listening to this a second time, I have to say that anyone who wanted more steel guitar will be pretty happy. this borders on country at times for sure

    yeah, that's fair, i shouldn't have equated the two when wild pink's only crime is me finding the lyrics slightly annoying. apologies.

    I really like his music but his lyrics are not great - Lake Erie in particular is a jam, but "I wonder how different some days go" is about as deep as a puddle and he somehow thinks its a refrain worth repeating

    "Some ancient slime crossed a line" ok go home bud you're drunk
