thread of amber bain's wonderful ectoplasmic slow jams. co-production of her new album, good at falling, split between george daniel of the 1975 and bj burton who did the last two low records

good at falling out 3/3

the "lilo" song and video have totally ruined my life

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Sunday, 3 February 2019 18:20 (five months ago) link

"Saw You In A Dream" is magnificent - think I voted for it in the 2017 poll. The EP of same name is also very good. The more recent teaser tracks haven't grabbed me as much, but I will still be buying this.

really looking forward to this, feels like she's only gotten better since that initial run of EPs

ufo, Monday, 4 February 2019 00:50 (five months ago) link

I've been tracking her since the first ep in 2015, so this has been a hell of a long time coming (though if you collect all the tracks she's released so far this would basically be her second album). Of the new material, "Maybe You're The Reason" is the raddest imo.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 4 February 2019 02:08 (five months ago) link

extremely psyched for this. i haven't listened to any of the EPs - just the singles in OP along with "maybe you're the reason" and they're all fantastic.

this was the highlight from her 2015 EPs iirc but it's been a while since i've listened

ufo, Monday, 4 February 2019 15:15 (five months ago) link

"Teeth" is my favorite of the old songs.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 4 February 2019 15:16 (five months ago) link

Another preview. On Spotify too.

fantastic

Ugh all these tracks are so good, and it looks like "Saw You In A Dream" will close out the record! Looks like it's shaping up to be a standout pop record this year; I can't wait

joshywinty (josh), Tuesday, 5 February 2019 19:29 (five months ago) link

I think I prefer her overall career to The 1975 at this point - maybe not quite the same highs but a much greater consistency

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 6 February 2019 14:14 (five months ago) link

three weeks pass...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dEzYD4ZielY

her music videos are excellent

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Thursday, 28 February 2019 20:22 (four months ago) link

this album is gorgeous, especially love "somethingfartoogoodtofeel" and "worms" on first listen

ufo, Friday, 1 March 2019 12:46 (four months ago) link

Somehow even better than I was expecting. Between this and Solange, I went to bed last night really appreciating exquisite synth choices.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 1 March 2019 12:54 (four months ago) link

After maybe the third listen “saw you in a dream” became maybe my favorite new pop song in forever. Steely Dan level on that top line ....

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Friday, 1 March 2019 15:14 (four months ago) link

fucking exquisite

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Friday, 1 March 2019 15:43 (four months ago) link

matty on "f a r a w a y"

there's only one word i can see when looking at this post

J0rdan S., Friday, 1 March 2019 16:00 (four months ago) link

"somethingfartoogoodtofeel" is what the second haim album should've sounded like

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Friday, 1 March 2019 16:05 (four months ago) link

“lilo” was a song written specifically to kick my feelings in the ass

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Friday, 1 March 2019 16:09 (four months ago) link

"worms" is like the 1976

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Friday, 1 March 2019 17:25 (four months ago) link

The guitars in Lilo sound so much like Durutti Column.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 1 March 2019 21:58 (four months ago) link

you keep represssssing iiiiit

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Monday, 4 March 2019 19:12 (four months ago) link

"worms" is the best one but this album is so awesome

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Monday, 4 March 2019 19:13 (four months ago) link

I hate to be this guy but I can’t help but wish the og saw you in dream was the one on the album :/

But I can’t imagine finding a better pop album this year!

Vapor waif (uptown churl), Monday, 4 March 2019 19:42 (four months ago) link

i actually feel that, i haven't adjusted to the new version yet

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Monday, 4 March 2019 19:46 (four months ago) link

i would like to reiterate: "worms"!!!!

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Saturday, 9 March 2019 14:55 (four months ago) link

guitar/synth bridge in "maybe you're the reason" is my other favorite thing that happens on this record, sudden flourish of minneapolis sound

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Saturday, 9 March 2019 15:15 (four months ago) link

i cannot get over this album, sooo good. <3

petey v, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 02:33 (four months ago) link

Yeah, this album is brilliant. I listened to it this morning and kept getting bits of it stuck in my head throughout the day.

kitchen person, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 04:24 (four months ago) link

something fart ooh, good to feel

flopson, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 05:15 (four months ago) link

"you seemed so happy" reminds me both of chairlift and the radio dept.

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 15:20 (four months ago) link

Nourry, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 19:45 (four months ago) link
