This album probably deserves its own thread for the track "Voices", which feels like a masterful homage to "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel. By the end of the track it morphs into what feels more akin to a 80s crime drama soundtrack. I mentioned in another thread that Bryan Ferry should get in touch with this guy because the album is chock full of chiming guitars reminiscent of Ferry's 80s solo albums.

i'm a sucker for 'kingdom animalia'. one of the best records i listened this year.

Nourry, Wednesday, 8 March 2017 21:28 (three years ago) link

Today is my tune of the year so far, to the point where I've slept on the rest of the album, which I should rectify

also i might suggest a less hip reference point: "africa" by toto

^ Totally!!! Also hear traces of Mark Knopfler and David Gilmor in the guitar playing - obviously not saying it's on that level, but tone-wise.

yeah a bit of learning to fly era pink floyd def and brothers in arms

blonde redheads have more fun (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 8 March 2017 22:32 (three years ago) link

Good call :)

This sounds way different than the tracks I heard ("Bit 1" and "Cloud Country"). Is this newer material?

Wimmels, Thursday, 9 March 2017 00:15 (three years ago) link

Hey Wimmels, the album came out January 13th, 2017

Carlotta's Portrait (Ross), Thursday, 9 March 2017 00:18 (three years ago) link

Ah, cool. This sounds great, gotta pick this up. Thanks!

Really loving this track, keep playing it again when it ends

Wimmels, Thursday, 9 March 2017 04:04 (three years ago) link

"voices" is indeed absolutely gorgeous, prob one of the best things i've heard so far this year

i also really like the album as a whole -- subtle enough not to reveal all its secrets at once, just enticing enough for me to keep coming back

two months pass...

dyl OTM - the production on this is so good and rewards repeat listening. Probably my favourite production this year aside from Kelly Lee Owens and Goldfrapp

Album of the year so far for me.

millmeister, Sunday, 4 June 2017 19:21 (three years ago) link

Ooh I didn't realize someone started a thread for this. I heard "Voices" on the local college station several weeks ago and it blew me away. The whole album is stunning.

Nice JF

No nomination for voices is truly a shame

kolakube (Ross), Saturday, 13 January 2018 00:07 (two years ago) link

OMG true

Tim F, Saturday, 13 January 2018 00:17 (two years ago) link

I always forget stuff that came out at the very beginning of the year

Tim F, Saturday, 13 January 2018 00:18 (two years ago) link

Today is a short-priced favourite for my number 1 track and I'll be voting the album top 5 but yeah Voices should be in there

i know kore-eda (or something), Saturday, 13 January 2018 00:40 (two years ago) link

nomination for what? the ilm poll? it's in there -- iirc i nominated it!

if you're talking about something else, well, that's too bad but more importantly you can vote for it on the ilm poll :D

dyl, Saturday, 13 January 2018 03:17 (two years ago) link

I voted Today on the ilm poll and for the album... Voices is also in the nominations list.

I didn't realise there was a thread for this! It rules

just sayin, Saturday, 13 January 2018 08:17 (two years ago) link

"voices" sounds so much like war on drugs

bhad and bhabie (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 15 January 2018 17:36 (two years ago) link

'kingdom animalia' is my type of jam.

Nourry, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 12:16 (two years ago) link

checking this out after hearing Today in the poll and the whole thing is great but Voices is especially transcendent, wish i'd heard it sooner
