Was trying to work out why this album made me feel like 2001. Then I realised it was because it's like The Dismemberment Plan's Change meets Bows' Cassidy meets The Beta Band's The Hot Shots II.

you might already realize this but Chad Clark produced most of the Dismemberment Plan's albums!

I read that after I had made the connection in my head and felt ashamed of my brain for being so obvious.

one month passes...

was a huge fan of smart went crazy's 'con art' and beauty pill's 'cigarrette girl from the future' EP, but their first album was such a bore i just forgot about them. it felt like they were aiming to that sort of dave fridmann empty(?) grandeur that basically defined his production work on mercury rev/flaming lips albums and ended up with something bloated and ultimately tuneless.

this album is amazing.

i think The Unsustainable Lifestyle is a really good and fascinating and misunderstood album, especially lyrically, but yeah, it's not on the same level as Con Art or Describes

^^ tbh, i never listened to the album since then, and at the time i didn't really gave it that much of a chance.

I discovered Describes in late February and have been kicking my own ass ever since: the album I wished I'd heard in 2015.

listening to king krule's new album, reflecting on how if it weren't rubbish it might sound a bit like this album
