This is the best album they have launched so far.
She’s amazing. This video disrupted my heart.
I honestly disagree completely with this review. I love stereogum because the reviewers tend to objectify the critics, but I feel this one didn’t do it at all.
First, if you’ve got expectations with a new album then you’re never gonna be satisfied. I love Natasha’s songs and stories since Fur and Gold, and I am always looking for her creativity to push her to explore new sounds.
I wasn’t looking for daniel 2.0 in this album, I don’t need that.
This albums gives me the chills, and it even makes me cry. It’s got a nordic, morning-late afternoon feeling to it that it’s seriously hard to describe.
I feel it as a complete viking folk tale, and I’m in love.
I’m in love with how she makes a completely homogenic waltz between so many objects and instruments and styles on each song, and somehow it ends up being grand and magnifique.
I’m totally in love with The Haunted Man, Lillies, Marilyn, Laura and Oh Yeah.
Hell, Oh Yeah could be one massive single…
I recommend you to re-listen to it, free of prejudice and expectations.
