oh wow thank you! I want that so bad
Love is Better is so fucking good
It really is.
Sidenote: The first 5 songs on this album are fucking perfect and flow so effortlessly into each other. I wish all albums started like that.
I think Seance is my least favorite track. It's just kinda there and throws off how good the rest of the album is
My least favorite as well. I do like the back half when it picks up a lot, but I think the first two or so minutes kinda kill the momentum up til that point
I actually enjoy Seance a lot. Love is Better usually is the one that bores me the most
The last third of the song is what sells it for me, I like how the instrumentals explode after such a slow burn.
Seance pays off in a live setting (I sound like a broken record but they really are so good live) but I can understand how it doesn't vibe well where it is on the album.
Put this on again, and, man, the little inflections in the vocal delivery make some lines so heartbreaking. "You don't sleep well, and you don't expect to" and "I believe you when you say you've been sad for your whole life/Your body looks impossibly small when you hang your head and cry" ruin me every time I hear them.
one of the more heartbreaking lyrics I think I've heard in a while. that whole song is a masterpiece tbh
Lake Erie is easily one of the best songs of last year.
I don't know why, but it seems like there's a reason for it all
Why some ancient slime crossed a line
Now there's a war on all life on Earth
also just learned the first line of the song is "passed a fireman" not "theres a fireman"
The title track is the winner for me. Seeing it live really brought out the insane structure of that track.
They're an incredible live band, but when I saw them last summer, opening with "Lake Erie" into "Burger Hill" on their setlist really fucked with me, haha.
this guy loves to talk about phones
One to three million cells will pass away in a second's time
The space is free where I used to be
And I catch myself on my phone
Wild Pink - "Coaches Who Cry"
this is the weird one
Don't really have much use for the Dondadi or Eerie Gates remixes (they're fine, but I don't see myself going out of my way to listen to them), but the two new tracks and the Shy Layers remix are all great.
love "how's the tap here"
these sound quite a bit different live than I expected. faster. extremely good tho, the title track is especially lovely
