I just found it. It came in at 772 with just the one vote (14 points). Is there any way we can claim 2016 was her year of impact and give it another chance?

It did get reissued as a "deluxe" version this year, so whoever wants to nominate is welcome to.

I'll go for it. I'll have to do some proper campaigning and everything. It seems like the kind of record people would love.

i still listen to this a lot. sent it to my sis and she loves it too

this record was a slight letdown for me but only because the Seven EP is some of my favorite music by anyone ever, still, The Switch is very good.

very nice live rendering of "Distance" here:

The second half of "Off Center" is really doing it for me right now.

Only just found out she has a new album out next week. Just catching up on the singles and everything is sounding so good. Really hyped for this.

Yeah, the latest one, "Can't Hold Me," is super good. Looking forward to this.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 24 January 2019 05:51 (one year ago) link

Whoa thanks

Johnny Fever, Friday, 25 January 2019 04:12 (one year ago) link

Ah, this album is so gorgeous. I really needed this today.

kitchen person, Friday, 25 January 2019 05:06 (one year ago) link

Totally in love with her new album. It makes a nice companion to the recent Natalie Prass one.

Love how much she's channeling Prince on the last few songs.

kitchen person, Monday, 4 February 2019 05:25 (one year ago) link

Yeah, the end is the strongest portion.

forgiveness >>>

but I can't let Trae do it I got Huerter on my mind (Spottie), Friday, 15 March 2019 23:07 (one year ago) link

I know it's still early days, but this is quite comfortably my favourite album of the year so far.

She's the guest on Switched on Pop this week: https://www.switchedonpop.com/lost-found-the-drama-of-pop-form-with-emily-king/

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 19 March 2019 16:16 (one year ago) link

First time I heard her, seemed good, kind of a Prince thing at end: https://www.google.com/search?q=Emily+King+Late+Night+With+Seth+Meyers&oq=Emily+King+Late+Night+With+Seth+Meyers&aqs=chrome..69i57.19671j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

record even better now that it feels like spring outside

I haven't watched her Coachella performance yet, but I hear it's dope.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 18:47 (one year ago) link

"2nd guess" song of the year, i cry every time

when that one explodes at the end >>

Oh god yeah, that is a stunning moment. My current favourite is Running. The vulnerability in her voice when she gets to the chorus, especially towards the end is incredible.

This whole album is an absolute triumph and I really hope more people come round to it over the year.

kitchen person, Thursday, 18 April 2019 01:59 (one year ago) link

Hi I love this album.

Tim F, Monday, 22 April 2019 22:27 (one year ago) link

YES

So, Scenery is fucking incredible.

I don't really have much more to add.

I just needed to tell somebody.

She has an EP out with that Machinedrum remix Brad posted plus remixes of four other tracks.

No news, just psyched I got a copy of 'The Switch' on LP. They go for crazy prices, but I lucked out and won it on ebay for the starting big (which is probably around what it would've cost new in 2015).
