    For some reason I was confusing this band with Big Jesus. No one why I couldn't find this on Apple Music.

    The chord progression in the first song reminds me of the ending of another song and I can't think of it and it's driving me crazy. I know it's a bit more up tempo and ends with what I think is a cello.

    Anyways this album is great.

    holy shit this is so good - I listened to the first five songs on a bus ride across some fields and bodies of water and it felt pretty perfect, given how they play with repetition and progress in sort of the same way that natural landscapes do as you travel through them. then i came home and listened to Feeling (aka that song they've been playing live forever) and Storm and they're my two favorite songs by this band now

    a lot of the songs pull you into this space where you're aware of/not struggling against the flow of time which is pretty cool. i also love how the record subverts the whole subdued start -> build up -> climax -> reprise of softness structure that's often characteristic of stuff that tries to be dynamic. the stuff is all still in the same order, but the emotionality works differently - things you were expecting to produce tension result in disorderliness instead, and the sharp transitions feel organic and self-contained rather than designed to reverse-engineer a particular experience - it's really interesting

    oh fuck, missed the tour dates posted. glad there's an Athens show!! haven't been down there in a minute. or wherever it's located relative to my current location

    i still have only listened to this once because i want my second time to have the lyrics in front of me or be driving and i haven't had the time for either :/

    Storm is my clear favorite on this atm, this definitely seems like the kind of record I have to sit with though. Not something I see myself casually throwing on til I'm super familiar with it
