Heard the song "Witching Hour" on the radio earlier tonight, and I've now listened to this album three times straight thru. Fantastic atmosphere, neato guitar (riffing and atmospherics).

I know there's a definitely market for this on ILM, but I'm terrible at hyping things. Just try it out.

good stuff Johnny, love the way the piano's mixed in "Always", bouncing off the mix - real nice

I just gave her ep from last year a spin as well. Equally top shelf.

"signals" is a dead ringer for Hanne Hukkelberg

I'm not familiar enough with Hanne Hukkelberg to have picked up on that, but it's a good song no doubt.

Whoa

I love that she's not a shredder but still plays guitar in a very deliberately unconventional way. Sort of like St. Vincent, except you know Annie wants to break into a metal speed solo at any moment and stops herself.

Anyway, this song is super dope.

I do like this song (and it's not my usual vibe)

She reminded me surface level of Olsen but Madeline is far more dreamy, love the spectral nature combined with those guitars. Agree song is dope

I feel pretty comfortable calling "Cut Me Off" my song of the summer at this point. I've listened to it about 300 times.

Absolutely otm
Gorgeous outro too

Cut me off is underrated and Kenney is in general

This record is SO GOOD (based on the songs released early).

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 00:23 (five months ago) Permalink

damn, have to hear this - she has a bright future

this album is really so good. a perfect album for summer evenings. i am really loving No Weekend - the sax! and when Your Art explodes

ufo, Monday, 22 October 2018 10:02 (five months ago) Permalink

love this album

sean gramophone, Monday, 22 October 2018 13:00 (five months ago) Permalink

beatufiul record, ufo otm about 'your art,' a standout among standouts.

I've listened to this album 3 times today. Totally took me by surprise. First track with it's Cocteau's style harmonies didn't prepare me for how much it rocks later on.

i still adore this and was intending to post about how perfect it is for the summer but i already did that a few months ago

heard "cut me off" on the radio today -- so very excellent !! excited to check out the record

"cut me off" is the best song i've ever heard, this person is a genius

budo jeru, Thursday, 28 February 2019 20:36 (three weeks ago) Permalink

The rest of the album kind of drifted away from me in the end, but Cut Me Off is cemented as a lifelong fave for me.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 2 March 2019 04:09 (two weeks ago) Permalink

same

budo jeru, Saturday, 2 March 2019 05:08 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i still adore the whole album. the new japanese house album feels like it occupies a somewhat similar space to this
