This is 100% my shit. They sound to me like Starship meets The Breeders??

This sounds like one of those acts that is going to make unlikely bedfellows on ILM.

my favorite moment in music this year is the artificial record scratch after the climbing guitar solo in "there was a door"

I'm hearing elements of Deerhoof, Weezer, and maybe the Go! Team in there as well. I'm digging this.

MarkoP, Sunday, 16 October 2016 19:33 (eight months ago) Permalink

Hate the vocals too much to focus on the parts I like (mostly the guitars).

Don Van Gorp, midwest regional VP, marketing (誤訳侮辱), Sunday, 16 October 2016 21:54 (eight months ago) Permalink

This is fantastic. The opening track is already my favorite song of the year.

ArchCarrier, Sunday, 23 October 2016 11:48 (eight months ago) Permalink

Whoa, thanks. Cute shred alert? "Patriot" was my favourite song of last year. I think I liked the single version, where the vocals were more obscured, a bit more than this one. Not carping though.

Spiritual Hat Minimalism (Sund4r), Sunday, 23 October 2016 13:27 (eight months ago) Permalink

The stretch of "A Sudden Gust"/"There Was a Door"/"Revive" is heaven. Less sure about the slower songs so far.

From RYM user MrMiniike:

this is such an exuberant fucking delight. This is exactly the album I need in my life right now.

Tempted to change my display name (for the first time in 12 years) to 'exuberant fucking delight'.

This is really awful.

_Rudipherous_, Sunday, 23 October 2016 14:59 (eight months ago) Permalink

The vocals definitely don't help but I'm not sure good vocals would save it.

took me a while to realize that "well and spring" is about its build. almost none of the other songs here are about build as much as about being a dense mass of polygons

think my favorite is "the curve"

this is a band where i'm equally thrilled when people love them and when people hate them lol

"well and spring" is about its transition into "a sudden gust", which is truly spectacular

imago, Sunday, 23 October 2016 16:55 (eight months ago) Permalink

but yes, it does build towards this

ciderpress, Sunday, 23 October 2016 18:00 (eight months ago) Permalink

wasn't sure if this is my thing from the sampled tracks but i'm about to give this a spin bc my faith in the brad ilm album thread brand is unshaken

(what's up with the tasteless album art though?)

ok this is in fact so great

ciderpress, Monday, 24 October 2016 02:44 (eight months ago) Permalink

the start of the last track when the van halen jump suspended synthchords come in is almost too much to take

ciderpress, Monday, 24 October 2016 03:13 (eight months ago) Permalink

i love the moments when stuff happens that doesn't really make sense outside the context of chiptunes like the wacko guitar solo on Wool in the Wash or the synth-trumpet fanfare riff in The Curve

Good and necessary bump. Every single track is a joy, though my favourite right now is There Was a Door. One of my absolute favourites this year.

dance band (tangenttangent), Wednesday, 7 December 2016 13:36 (six months ago) Permalink

My brother just sent me the opening song from this the other day. After one listen to the album, it's immediately in my top five of the albums of the year. I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

Kitchen Person, Wednesday, 7 December 2016 14:40 (six months ago) Permalink

yeah this is top 5 of year for me for sure

ciderpress, Wednesday, 7 December 2016 14:41 (six months ago) Permalink

it's in my top 20 which is a pretty cool achievement for an emo record in (imo) the best year for music ever

i guess we are in a post post garage band world now but am i the only one who can't listen to this? it just sounds so bad. yikes.

also let's settle down w/the deerhoof comparisons

this really rules even though it often feels like it shouldn't

the synth textures are odd and wouldn't really work anywhere else but here they're reminiscent of an n64 game or something

Just saw them play a good percentage of this album supporting The Hotelier. It was a pretty amazing performance. They ended on There Was a Door, which was pure space happiness. We spoke to them afterwards at the merch stall and they were very sweet. One of the best features of 2016.

I spilt beer on their merch but I wiped it up with my jumper and I'm sorry

Great clip. Santos seems a little unsure in the first song but ends up delivering better than I've seen in any other clips. Guitarist and drummer are dead-on. How long has this drummer been with them? I don't think she was on the album? (And, apparently, they could explain Dream Theatre to us! Or at least the guitarist could.)

Yeah Elaiza kills it, really annoyed i missed them in the UK. Think the she just covered this tour for the usual drummer who plays in LVL UP as well.

devvvine, Wednesday, 15 March 2017 23:12 (three months ago) Permalink

Glad to see the guitarist is a fan of The Go! Team.

I remember when Barry Johnson of Joyce Manor raved about Crying, pre-BTFG. I checked out their bandcamp and all I heard was this 8-bit emo band. I was so confused. But this new album is perfect, definitely one of my favorites of 2016. Get Olde Second Wind is still pretty unlistenable tho

Handsome Bookor, Tuesday, 21 March 2017 13:28 (three months ago) Permalink

Ha, I even like some of that one OK. Beyond the Fleeting Gales was a major step up, though.

Played "Revive" for my co-worker and he said it was "refreshing" and seemed notably jazzed

Balðy Daudrs (contenderizer), Thursday, 23 March 2017 00:59 (three months ago) Permalink

I only listened to this after the year-end poll, and I liked it but I had a hard time placing it. That's not a bad thing, I just wasn't really sure what I was hearing. Watching the live clip is helpful, because it made me think of Marnie Stern. These guys are sort of similarly adrift, indie prog or whatever you want to call them. She's talented. Will need to explore more.

"i hear perfume" would be a good way to describe this band even if I didn't understand it as a reference & interpreted the words literally

bernard snowy, Thursday, 23 March 2017 14:41 (three months ago) Permalink

yesterday, this was pretty good. today, three listens later, it's the best album i've heard in ages. love everything about it (except the merely good bass playing and the softer "indie" vocals, maybe). memorable songs, hilarious range of winks & influences, killer keys & guitar, powerhouse vocalist, and zero flab. last four tracks are especially great.

Balðy Daudrs (contenderizer), Thursday, 23 March 2017 19:09 (three months ago) Permalink

yah the closing run is incredible

they could do with a full-time bassist though maybe yeah, especially live

love the verses tho
