the vocals of that amazing opener are SO MOODY BLUES. for me that’s not a bad thing.

are we 100% sure that’s not Will Forte fronting this band now?

cover art by seattle badass Joe Rudko, fwiw. his shit is dope.

that Phoenix ref was pretty left field

there is a strong and engaging record to be culled from the Machina/II/Friends&Enemies tracks, and i suspect we’ll get a better sense of what that thing was supposed to be with the upcoming re-release.

a long time fan, i was as surprised and excited with Oceania as the most devout of us, but so far i can’t muster any love for the new songs we’ve heard streamed so far. was it simply an expectations game? i had none for Oceania, and now these lead singles have put me back in that place: there’s no way this record will be any good! time to listen!
