One of the best bands running easily
A very easy thing to say when you’ve heard the record already!
ordered the LP
Song absolutely rules.
let us canadians have this , this is the first time i dont have to pay 30$ shipping for a single vinyl. its a big moment for me
This song is so fucking good
I’m sorry I just realized the video stars Alexis from Shitts Creek
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.
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
oh hell yeah yee haw baby
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.
if y'all like wild pink I bet you'd dig this new thunder dreamer single
Julia Steiner from Ratboys sings on 8 songs on this record!
my least fav on the album
how dare you
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
