really? no thread for her?

well, her new album is out, so what do y'all think?

there's a funny musical citation of duran duran on this album, did you catch it?

ooh, I loved her last album a lot! did she make any radical changes?

decent writer, like the semi-throwback styling, but ultimate a bit same-y and limited in her palette

i've had "back, baby" stuck in my head for the past few days

i was pleasantly surprised that the new one had a lot of the same kind of lo-fi intimacy as her debut...would've been easy for her to leave that behind on this one.

Joanna Newsom for the masses (that's a compliment)

that would make sense if joanna newsom weren't herself quite popular, much more so than jessica pratt.

also lazy comparison

I agree with this: semi-throwback styling, but ultimate a bit same-y and limited in her palette

yeah, the new one is kind of a disappointment, honestly. is it too harsh to say the novelty has worn off a bit? it's not /bad/ by any means, but i don't know how much it adds to the previous album (except for the great part where it sounds like your turntable has speed issues)

oh and the duran duran musical quote.

I dunno. (amateurist), Tuesday, 10 February 2015 23:29 (four years ago) Permalink

good thing i never listened to the previous one

nostormo, Tuesday, 10 February 2015 23:33 (four years ago) Permalink

yeah, actually that's a good point! if you're coming to her for the first time, i imagine the new one would be about as good as the previous one.

the slowdown part is soooo great, idk i loved the first one and love this one too even though it doesn't bring a lot of new stuff to the table

alpine static, Wednesday, 11 February 2015 00:52 (four years ago) Permalink

there's a slowdown, and later a subtle speed-up as well.. just lots of unsettling play with speed

kind of justifies the vinyl-only release

I dunno. (amateurist), Wednesday, 11 February 2015 01:04 (four years ago) Permalink

the new one? i got it on cd

adam, Wednesday, 11 February 2015 01:05 (four years ago) Permalink

oh, i thought it was vinyl only. hmm.

I dunno. (amateurist), Wednesday, 11 February 2015 02:46 (four years ago) Permalink

does the CD have digital distortion at the points where the vinyl appears to slow down?

I dunno. (amateurist), Wednesday, 11 February 2015 02:46 (four years ago) Permalink

listened to it again this morning and didn't notice anything tho i was not in "close listening" mode, are there any particular tracks in which this happens?

adam, Wednesday, 11 February 2015 14:35 (four years ago) Permalink

Back, Baby was my #1 song last year and this album lived up to the hype. Just discovered and I still haven't tried the rest of her catalogue.

going to see her tonight, will report back

aw, album's not out until February

I never got around to checking out the first two albums though they sounded interesting, heard this new song couple of times now and really like it.

New album is her best album, easy.

new album is fantastic, still like the debut better tho

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Sunday, 10 February 2019 02:32 (six days ago) Permalink

Perhaps less immediate than the last one. Not sure what to think after two listens in an hour.

Nag! Nag! Nag!, Sunday, 10 February 2019 02:33 (six days ago) Permalink

production is like slow rain on a pond

the girl from spirea x (f. hazel), Sunday, 10 February 2019 02:36 (six days ago) Permalink

Absolutely love the new record
