That oddly timed shift from the verses to the chorus makes the song. Tickles the same part of my brain as the chorus to Weezer’s “Cleopatra”.

Also, we all realize that Megan James is one of the best lyricists in indie pop right now, right?

Tracklisting of the year 2015?

Well, this confirms my suspicion that this whole thing is just indie rock’s answer to the one-sided Lil B/Kevin Durant beef.

Which is to say, this is pretty funny, but it’s no “Fuck KD”.

This sounds like it’s going to be in about the same vein as Paralytic Stalks.

God, I can’t wait for another record in the vein of Paralytic Stalks.

Long As the Sun -> It’s Not Enough -> Burn It was one of my favorite stretches of music to come out of last year. So glad there’s more on the way.

Wait, did Pierce’s solo album actually get released? I remember that song coming out but not any follow up.

Cole Alexander approves of this news post.

I’m something of a GBV stan, but I do have a measure of discernment with which I can say confidently that February’s Motivational Jumpsuit could easily slide into the band’s stream of straight-up opuses from 92-97, which is pretty amazing considering how much they’ve put out in just the last two and a half years. But, I mean, I also think Under the Bushes edges out this record for their best work, so I could be wrong.
