new album 'good will come to you' is a special thing

21 sketches of warm vocal harmonies, field recordings, and the gentlest guitar

This is very nice. I don't hear much Russell, maybe more like Weldon Irvine and Skip Spence?
have you seen him live Flopson? I see he's playing casa del popolo on Thursday

i've seen him play at random shows but it was very different from this, like faltering ramshackle post-punk. might not make it to the show on thursday as i'm moving this weekend... :-(

i hear russell in the phrasing and also the quavering quality of the vocals in some parts. don't recognize those other two names you mention though

oh he's opening for USAOUTOFVIETNAM, definitely not gonna go to that. i'll definitely catch him whenever he headlines a show for this stuff though

'I Felt The Evening Come Through The Window' sounds undeniably like Russel imo

yeah on second listen I can hear more of what you mean re Russell. It seemed like an odd reference to me cuz I was picking up on much more hippie influences, hence Spence and Irvine, to be kind of reductive (Spence is falling-down 60s folk/rock and Irvine is spacey 70s soul/jazz; could throw a bit of "If I Could Only Remember My Name" in too, though obv the vocals are quite different), which is more what I was hearing on the first go through. anyway, it's a great album and it's not like it sounds super retro, it just reminded me of some stuff I really like. It's a great morning album fyi

i really like this. and it sounds pretty contemporary to me. maybe one of the better "new album" experiences i've had in awhile

cute. <3 that he chose a song that is 1:35 long on the album to make a video for. this album has been a staple all summer, thanks for making this thread
