and that's not counting Weaponize or either of the Palmdale EPs

yeah also that!

Can't stop playing this album. Definitely my favorite of the year so far. Torn between "DQ" and "Glitter" as the best song on it.

Handsome Bookor, Thursday, 20 April 2017 21:17 (two years ago) link

i really like the rerecording of "ruby" and generally how much synth they layered over this thing

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Thursday, 20 April 2017 21:24 (two years ago) link

I came around to the new "Ruby"; took some getting used to. Was listening to the A Lot to Say and Soft Serve EPs today and realized just how much progress they've made with Guppy (really glad Eva takes lead vocals on all 10 tracks).

Also, she's quickly becoming one of my favorite lyricists. So funny, bizarre, and self-deprecative, but not in a classically emo tear-yourself-down kinda way. So many quotables on this record, but the opening lines of "DQ" are my favorite: "I laughed when your dog died/it's cruel, but it's true/take me back, kiss my soft side/does he love me most now that his dog is toast?"

katherine this is great! http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/23085-guppy/

ToddBonzalez (BradNelson), Friday, 21 April 2017 11:51 (two years ago) link

Doesn't sound like them particularly but something reminds me of The Blake Babies.

yugi ex, Friday, 21 April 2017 18:38 (two years ago) link

I made a post in this thread yesterday giving Katherine a hi-five for namedropping Stretch Princess in 2017, but it disappeared. I can't let that acknowledgement go unappreciated though, so I'm posting it again.

"jawbreaker soundtrack" could be swapped out for "she's all that soundtrack" or really just like any soundtrack between 1995-2005

Love this album.

Matt DC, Sunday, 23 April 2017 21:22 (two years ago) link

this is great, they totally get that the best of this stuff was about hard rock as much as it was about hooks

call all destroyer, Monday, 24 April 2017 14:59 (two years ago) link

ennhhh, not especially

a self-reinforcing downward spiral of male-centric indie (katherine), Monday, 24 April 2017 18:01 (two years ago) link

I want to like this so much. They kind of have "Erica band" written all over them and yet I find her voice so awful and grating that I can't listen to any of it beyound a couple seconds. :/

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Monday, 24 April 2017 20:27 (two years ago) link

this is a total sugar rush

seeing them tonight. this album is so catchy.

geoffreyess, Friday, 12 May 2017 20:12 (two years ago) link

Eva Hendricks last night: "Do you guys love the song "Minneapolis" by that dog.?"

geoffreyess, Saturday, 13 May 2017 15:50 (two years ago) link

two weeks pass...

Hey, I like this record.

It looks like some other old person beat me to the that dog comparison, but it's accurate. These are some catchy songs, and toadilly unique vocals.

Charly Bliss are a dynamite act!!!

kornrulez6969, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 17:01 (two years ago) link

i'm not old enough to remember it from the 90s but when i was in college my roommate and i watched every spike jonze music video :)

lovin the album btw. it's almost slight in its hyper-focused aesthetic, but perfecting the micro-est of pop micro-genres is the noblest pursuit imo

^^the song that hooked me initially

geoffreyess, Tuesday, 13 June 2017 20:23 (two years ago) link

That's definitely Camp Crystal Lake

Handsome Bookor, Wednesday, 14 June 2017 10:18 (two years ago) link

this album makes me so happy

alpine static, Friday, 16 June 2017 00:31 (two years ago) link

it reminds me of Be Your Own Pet in a lot of (good) ways

Four months later and this is still my favourite album of the year. like nothing else even comes close to this for me, pretty much every song is fantastic.

josh az (2011nostalgia), Tuesday, 29 August 2017 04:49 (two years ago) link

it is very good. i've come back to it more than any other new album as well.

you are juror number 144 and we will excuse you (Sufjan Grafton), Tuesday, 29 August 2017 05:00 (two years ago) link

samesies

i don't know if i will really put it at #1 at year's end, but it will be top 5 and i probably listen to it more than whatever will be ahead of it

alpine static, Tuesday, 29 August 2017 05:39 (two years ago) link

I really hope this crushes it in the year-end album poll

josh az (2011nostalgia), Tuesday, 29 August 2017 06:04 (two years ago) link

the choruses on this are never leaving my brain these days, I wake up most days with something from this playing in my head

i love this album! a fun tidbit i also just learned is that the male guitarist was the voice of "dash" in the movie the incredibles

Glitter never fails to sounds absolutely magica

*magical

eight months pass...

saw them last night, the listed set times were more of a lie than pizzagate and qanon combined (I'm old, live nowhere near brooklyn and work 9 to 5 so I'm probably just complaining unnecessarily) but the set itself was amazing

aloha darkness my old friend (katherine), Friday, 24 August 2018 14:39 (one year ago) link

I just don't get big gaps between artists playing, fair enough when you're with someone but as a regular single gig goer they are just painful. Finish the show earlier and we can all go home, or get an extra local band to play a set.

Old and cranky I am.

Minister of the Pillow (fionnland), Friday, 24 August 2018 15:45 (one year ago) link

But yes they put on a great show, always seem thankful to the crowds which I love

Minister of the Pillow (fionnland), Friday, 24 August 2018 15:46 (one year ago) link

few bands seem as genuinely appreciative of the attention as this band, it's v charming

my sister saw these folks open for Death Cab the other night and I'm listening to this album now and it's good I think

you beat me to it!!!

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Wednesday, 6 February 2019 15:13 (ten months ago) link

Haha, I was surprised to be the first one. Video directed by Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast. Two of my favourites!

kitchen person, Wednesday, 6 February 2019 15:16 (ten months ago) link

Oh great another guitar band discovers synths.

kornrulez6969, Wednesday, 6 February 2019 15:17 (ten months ago) link

wasn't really expecting them to suddenly get into the synths but i like it, the verse reminds me a fair bit of LC!

ufo, Wednesday, 6 February 2019 15:22 (ten months ago) link

I appreciate the dedication to accurate 90s recall of the guitars to analog synth shift that happened mid decade, but tbh this song is underserved by Moogs.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 6 February 2019 15:23 (ten months ago) link

Nice

Sam Weller, Wednesday, 6 February 2019 15:40 (ten months ago) link

Just noticed that Heaven isn't on the new album. That's a shame.

kitchen person, Wednesday, 6 February 2019 15:56 (ten months ago) link

lovely news! still going back to young enough pretty regularly

devvvine, Wednesday, 30 October 2019 14:34 (one month ago) link

and to drop it on a rare occasion i can listen at work, so thoughtful!

devvvine, Wednesday, 30 October 2019 14:35 (one month ago) link

fans of guppy who couldn't get down with the new lp: idk, seems like this is for you

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 30 October 2019 14:38 (one month ago) link

how do they write so many good songs

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 30 October 2019 14:38 (one month ago) link

was mid supermoon and came to post the same thing

devvvine, Wednesday, 30 October 2019 14:41 (one month ago) link

Niiiice!

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 October 2019 16:15 (one month ago) link

Holy shit @ "Threat." I'm constantly wrestling with whether or not I was that guy in my youth, and I don't think I was to that degree, but I feel this in my bones.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 30 October 2019 16:33 (one month ago) link

This new E.P sounds somewhat like a bunch of Demos. Everything is quite basic, thin and...boring :(

nostormo, Wednesday, 30 October 2019 18:53 (one month ago) link

"heaven" giving me breeders vibes.

fact checking cuz, Wednesday, 30 October 2019 19:21 (one month ago) link

these songs are all pretty good except for "supermoon"

ufo, Wednesday, 30 October 2019 20:29 (one month ago) link

ended their set tonight with a dancing on my own cover

devvvine, Wednesday, 6 November 2019 23:11 (one month ago) link

and yeah, the new EP is so-so but Supermoon and Heaven are great
