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

Week of Wonders (Ross), Monday, 30 October 2017 00:11 (two years ago) link

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

Wow, that was quick. A new album already.

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

Ross, Wednesday, 11 July 2018 22:01 (two years ago) link

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

Johnny Fever, Friday, 20 July 2018 16:50 (two years ago) link

Absolutely otm
Gorgeous outro too

Cut me off is underrated and Kenney is in general

Excellent timing for a revive btw. This just dropped today!

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 15 August 2018 16:12 (one year ago) link

Anticipating this a lot

had not listened to her before but these new songs are all very captivating, looking forward to the new album

ufo, Wednesday, 12 September 2018 17:52 (one year ago) link

they're all very dreamy but delightfully off-kilter

ufo, Wednesday, 12 September 2018 18:05 (one year ago) link

produced by jenn wasner iirc. very hyped for this record

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

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 2 October 2018 00:23 (one year ago) link

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

ritual showdown (Ross), Tuesday, 2 October 2018 20:18 (one year ago) link

album completely lives up to the singles, it's great! the bass playing is a highlight

ufo, Friday, 5 October 2018 04:14 (one year ago) link

gorgeous acoustic version of the title track

ufo, Saturday, 6 October 2018 11:15 (one year ago) link

Love this so much!

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 (one year ago) link

love this album

sean gramophone, Monday, 22 October 2018 13:00 (one year ago) link

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

voodoo chili, Monday, 22 October 2018 14:17 (one year ago) link

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

ufo, Friday, 11 January 2019 06:20 (one year ago) link

one month passes...

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

budo jeru, Thursday, 21 February 2019 19:09 (one year ago) link

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

budo jeru, Thursday, 28 February 2019 20:36 (one year ago) link

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.

budo jeru, Saturday, 2 March 2019 05:08 (one year ago) link

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

ufo, Saturday, 2 March 2019 07:25 (one year ago) link

one year passes...

New single is subdued but a delight.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 16:28 (two months ago) link

really love the new single, bass sounds fantastic

sleight return (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 17:43 (two months ago) link

kurt wagner backing vocals too

another new one

had missed "sucker" when it came out but it's delightful, similar in mood to last year's fantastic lambchop album

ufo, Tuesday, 30 June 2020 22:58 (one month ago) link

I preordered the lp when Sucker came out, but it got pushed back to August along the way, so this renewed my anticipation.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 1 July 2020 01:23 (one month ago) link

another new single, album out friday. sounding nice, love that big distortion on the guitar that comes in intermittently.

mozzy star (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 00:54 (one week ago) link

fuck me this album is absurdly terrific.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 2 August 2020 21:27 (one week ago) link

it's great. doesn't feel very different from the last album but she's so good at what she does that i don't mind at all

ufo, Monday, 3 August 2020 00:48 (one week ago) link

It's pretty similar, maybe a bit more muscular and guitar-centric

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 3 August 2020 01:36 (one week ago) link

The last one was drifty in a quiet way. This one seems more anchored? I dunno. That's the best I've got.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 3 August 2020 02:07 (one week ago) link

songs are better this time around
