New album out today.
I was planning to give it a first listen on vinyl but my pre-order hasn't arrived yet, so I might cave in and just use Spotify tonight.
Has anyone heard it? Thoughts, opinions?

Its good, dark and broody altough not as immediate as the last one. "a lucid dream" was a standout

It seems inevitable that bands I get into because of their big exuberant debut go on to record a muted, introspective follow up, and then I have to rationalize why I actually like the new direction better.
We'll give it a few days to see how well that sticks in this case. But my gut says that Dogrel will still come out ahead.

I guess theres always that worry for new bands that they don't make a carbon copy of the debut

difficult second album syndrome never goes away it seems
I never checked the first album out for some reason (their name irks me, irrationally) but I'll give this a listen at some point

I'm not sure if their name is a homage to this Irish anarcho-punk band or not

Have not cared much for Fontaines DC but they should get Soulwax to collaborate on everything.

The chorusy Bass VI on the new single is nice
