Cool thread !

Black Dresses is my favorite album this year, but I think it goes in the category of things I love unconditionally that I can't imagine recommending to anyone I currently know IRL.

if you're on the right wavelength, it's basically everything. I'm slightly less enthusiastic about Girls Rituals, but the track "It's Not That Deep" hits similar highs.

Katie Dey deleted her twitter :( a lot of her tweets in recent months were really concerning, I hope she's okay

who needed a new black dresses? yes that's right - all of us! and this one they made while in the same room...

dizzy/devi has been doing heroic and slightly scary work unmasking an abusive doctor on twitter btw so there might have to be some sort of legal kickstarter soon. or maybe the guy will kill himself, which would be preferable

The compilation this thread is named after seems to have been removed from Bandcamp. For someone who never got around to buying it: is there anywhere else it can be found? A reason for its absence, related or unrelated to all the other obvious upheaval in these artists’ lives atm?

So this is cool then

imago, Thursday, 8 November 2018 15:32 (eleven months ago) link

i like the weird MIDI pop thing they're going for here in places but the overall sound design doesn't really grab me in the same way that katie's solo work does, and they haven't really made the vocals mesh with it very well (this was a problem for me on girls rituals and black dresses albums too)

like the 'bedroom prog' tag though

ufo, Thursday, 8 November 2018 15:39 (eleven months ago) link

It's no Flood Network and it's no WASTEISOLATION, but it's cool imo

imago, Thursday, 8 November 2018 16:46 (eleven months ago) link

I do suspect it'll grow on me too

imago, Thursday, 8 November 2018 18:29 (eleven months ago) link

When it hits the highs there are things on this one that I think might become my absolute favourites out of any of the records, but then there are patches where it just doesn't move me at all (I actually think the first track was one of these, just didn't gel for me at the start).

the run of die or be killed through into the sky is exceptional, as is pigs don't feel pain

"wheel of fortune" struck me on first listen

good continuation of a great sound

will give it a few more goes this week
and hopefully over the next few months too

nxd, Tuesday, 5 February 2019 10:15 (eight months ago) link

WATER is the one for me, on first listen

imago, Tuesday, 5 February 2019 10:16 (eight months ago) link

new album is v v good

opening for Odonis Odonis on 04/04 which is an inspired pairing

bhad bundy (Simon H.), Wednesday, 13 February 2019 19:55 (eight months ago) link

went top of the 2019 RYM chart at the last update. chaos has ensued. a bit reminiscent of when they showed up on the ILM albums poll, but maybe a little less polite

imago, Thursday, 14 February 2019 11:09 (eight months ago) link

xp yesss love odonis odonis

Simon H., Friday, 5 April 2019 10:52 (six months ago) link

You went???? I AM SO JEALOUS.

emil.y, Friday, 5 April 2019 12:18 (six months ago) link

honestly best show I've seen in month, such an inspired pairing, great receptive crowd for them to debut to. kudos to whoever thought it up.

Simon H., Friday, 5 April 2019 23:50 (six months ago) link

i love this music and these people and support the general premise of this thread

heyhi i wasn't aware of this when it came out and now the download has vanished w/out a trace! does anyone know what happened/have a zip they can send me? i've thought about just going and collecting the tracklist one by one but i'd like prefer just to have the comp!
