If you delete a couple of the clunkers in the middle this was actually a pretty enjoyable album all in all. Although I've not really felt the need to go back to it.

Great article Whiney! Don't be shy about posting links to your stuff.
Where does Lykke Li fit into this whole David Lynch/haunted girl group thing? I feel like her last album had a lot in common with the Cults one.

Blouse and Nite Jewel were both new to me and I'm liking them a lot. Frankie Rose was already one of my favorites of the year. Didn't really realize how much this sound was a thing right now, but it hits a lot of my buttons.

i know laughter is not the intention but there's something inherently lol about him saying "infinite bliss consciousness" in his barney fife voice
Having seen one of those lectures live it was...something.

Liking The Big Dream much more than the last one so far.

It gets pretty samey but I like the Lykke Li song and The Ballad of Hollis Brown. He should do a covers album.

1st one was pretty respectable old dude art-pop, very 90s trip hop vibes with the eddyish guitars and creeping drums. Inessential but much better than expected. May check out the new one if I run out of better offers.
