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.
Sun Kil Moon and Mount Eerie should both be in the top 25. Honorable mentions don’t do either record justice.
Others left off completely:
Perfume Genius – Put Your Back N 2 It (maybe it lost points for that spelling?)
The Men – Open Your Heart
Bowerbirds – The Clearing
Sigur Rós – Valtari
True. Horrible band name.
I heard this yesterday and was really unsure about it. Listened a few more times and it’s really grown on me. I love how it doesn’t really ever settle down.
New summer jam-anji for sure. (sorry)
yep yepyep yep
I just wanna punch things when I listen to this album. In the best way possible, though.
Japandroids know exactly what they do so well and stick to it, and that’s what I love about them. Perfect album for summer.
He really hits his stride in the 2nd half. The last song is so good.
Absolutely gorgeous. Everything I want/expect from a Sigur Rós.
The last half of this song is incredible. First half is a little blah.
pretty dope track yo
How are there 10 comments and no one has made a terrible Davy Jones’ locker joke?
I could listen to this version of Wash. forever.
