This has slowly turned into one of my favourite records of the decade, it just emotionally wrecks me every time. I've seen the tag "bedroom-pop" thrown at it a few times, which I guess makes sense since it has the same kind of introverted intimacy, but it's so much more ambitious and otherworldly than that. Something like "It's Simpler to Make Home on the Ground" sounds like it could come off Another Green World, for instance

absolutely one of the best albums this decade

This is to celebrate the release of her new collaboration album with Girls Rituals later today, yes? It's the album 2018 has been building to

Anyway this is an amazing record. Voting (f8)

I’ve been meaning to make this poll for awhile now so I didn’t really have that collaborative album in mind, but I’m very much looking forward to hearing it!

Fear O’ the Light is definitely the standout, but yeah (F8) is an amazing interlude track that deserves some votes

it feels less like an interlude than the climax of the album! the actual closing track only begins after a short silence and is much more minimal & concise (while still an excellent ending)

the collaboration album is out in like 3 hours :)

I take back what I said earlier about (F8), it is indeed the jaw-dropping climax this album deserves. Voted Fear O’ the Light though, it’s just such a perfect three minutes
