Saw her live last night. I think the album has a couple too many midtempo dreampop-by-numbers tracks that weren't especially exciting live, but her voice is great and the momdnt when the guitars crashed in at the end of "Stay with Me" was incredible. She also closed with "Sure," which is still probably my favorite thing she's done.

The album kinda washed over me when it came out (aside from "Stay With Me") but I pulled it out again in preparation for seeing her live last night (she was awesome btw) and now it sounds like a classic?

yeah, one of my faves of the year for sure

Yeah, I just listened to it last week and it sounded glorious. Surprised it didn't get much discussion on here when it finally came out.

I'm still obsessed with "Secret" and "Stay With Me"

I think it's one of those albums where everything sounds so pleasant and comforting and familiar that if you listen to it without really focusing on it directly it's easy to just take it for granted.

(seeing her live was also helpful in this regard: no surprises, but it forced me to pay more attention)

Didn't expect to get so earwormed by this or the SAS EP (and I still like Sugar And Spice more than anything on the album) this year but yeah it's practically perfect for what it is.

"I honestly could have chosen any New Order album really..."

this album kind of frustrates me because there's loads I like about it but there must be elements of music I normally dislike in there as some of the tracks irritate me.

maybe it's the dreamy/ languid feel which gets a bit much, idk.

CRJ and New Order, are we sure she doesnt post here?

Stay With Me has the main hook lifted from something, it's exactly the same sound, something in the last few years I think, cannot for the life of me think what it is, but it's really familiar.

nashwan, Wednesday, 1 January 2020 21:03 (one year ago) link

it's not born slippy, born slippy sounds a bit like it, what I am thinking of is exactly the same sound

my guess on a postcard is Calvin Harris

my sock puppet is going with Clean Bandit

Welcome to Nonrock (breastcrawl), Wednesday, 14 October 2020 10:44 (nine months ago) link

I can see it being someone like Four Tet

She was probably referring to this:


It's Joe Agius's "solo" project, which consist of the same lineup as Hatchie except he's singing main vocals. So it's basically a Hatchie track.

I like it a lot. I realize that this stuff is probably super derivative but they do know how to write a song!

Looking forward to Hatchie's new stuff.

I kind of like it but also kind of think it goes into that Sixpence None the Richer song at the end

kinder, Friday, 30 October 2020 23:56 (nine months ago) link

Even *more* Cocteau Twins-ish in the bass dept, I'm thinking.

Nag! Nag! Nag!, Saturday, 31 October 2020 03:38 (nine months ago) link

I had to google who he even is (I guess I haven't ever heard of The Creases before?). This is v good, though.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 31 October 2020 04:36 (nine months ago) link

he's hatchie's main guitarist/keyboardist & boyfriend, but yes he's formerly of the creases who are honestly not really worth knowing about. i saw them live once as an opening act and they were very forgettable

ufo, Saturday, 31 October 2020 06:01 (nine months ago) link

I listened to the one album that's on Spotify. It was perfectly ok, but probably once was enough.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 31 October 2020 06:08 (nine months ago) link

I feel like these guys use the perfect shoegaze guitar / bass settings for me. Just the right mix of Cocteau Twins, Lush and Slowdive (with a bit of Sundays mixed in). And live they sound even better. I'm taking about Hatchie/Joe A.
