Find Me On:
fiona and cloud nothings were my top spots as well, but have been passed by shields
Been listening to this thing for over a week now (calm down I’ve got my vinyl preordered) and I can without a doubt say it’s my AOTY. I loved it at first and it still got better with every listen. More cohesive than any of their other albums, and Yellow House is one of my favorite records probably ever. Sleeping Ute, Speaking in Rounds, Yet Again, The Hunt (with most heart-breakingly beautiful vocal performance I’ve heard all year) , Half-Gate, and of course, Sun in Your Eyes are all amazing. Even the songs that weren’t my favorites the first couple times around are now up there as well. I love how they went for a bigger sound, but kept the production raw so that those quiet moments shine just as bright as the loud ones.
TL;DR: I can’t say enough good things about this record
Alright here’s mine. Guess I can’t blame them for not including cuckoo cuckoo because I also couldn’t fit it in my top 10.
10. Leaf House
9. In The Flowers
8. Water Curses
7. My Girls
6. What Would I Want? Sky
5. For Reverend Green
4. Banshee Beat
2. The Purple Bottle
1. Winter’s Love
no Fireworks, For Reverend Green, Banshee Beat, Cuckoo Cuckoo, What Would I Want? (Sky), or WINTER’S LOVE – the most beautiful song in their entire catalog??
phil elverum can do no wrong
It’s a fun music thing
Yes! I forgot FJM, too. Great album.
Whoops. Just noticed Amrit has The Men as an honorable mention as well.
