Sounds pretty good on first listen. I wouldn't call the production "glossy", maybe just "bigger"? I really liked their most recent Undersea ep so am psyched to hear all of this new one.

Sounds pretty good to me. Loved the woozy vibe of Undersea, and this isn't too far off.

Album is kicking around - very much the sound of that single, for 53 minutes. (A good thing, if you ask me, but I think it's gonna wear most people out.)

I think it's beautiful. I love the horns and the lead vocals; Can't wait till I have the money to buy this.

Just picked it up at the weekend. When we saw them live at ATP a couple of years ago I was vaguely worried they were gonna go down an early-Verve, wibbly reverb dream hole and forget to take any tunes with them. They kind of have, except that they've done it really well; instead of nothing but twisty/repetitive guitar lines, they've deployed brass really cleverly. It's a really lovely record to doze to on a Sunday afternoon when you're exhausted. And I mean that absolutely as a compliment. Looking forward to unraveling it a bit more. But not too much.
