it's very long but 1) every song is good 2) it's a really beautiful shimmer to live inside of for an hour

So many ways to go wrong with this sound, but this is 100% correct.

Picked this up today. Such a gorgeous record that totally justifies its length. Looking forward to getting to know it more.

when I put this on my boyfriend said it sounded like it was made in a lab to be exactly to my tastes, and he was right. I do wish the songwriting had a little more oomph to justify its long length but I think that would also be missing the point - it's meant to be textural and dreamy more than anything.

How legit is the story of their career as I've read it? They barely do press, they self-release everything and they've just toured hard to build a following and become successful by being so good at what they do. I'm sure I saw that they don't even have a manager.

it's all very pleasant sounding but nothing really stands out to me about it despite being very fond of this sort of sound.

also can a mod move this thread to ILM? do we have that technology?

Sounds like more of the same. Can't say I mind.

after i made this thread a mod explained to me that moving threads across boards is the thing that breaks the entire borad

I was the unwitting catalyst for such a seismic event once. I don't recommend it.

So smooth

Stoked for new stuff, Oncle Jazz is amazing

"Tailwhip" initially obscured how mellow and strong the rest of the album is. Fun to play and have appreciation grow for other tracks.
