It was ok! I only caught the last half of it because Melvins were at the same time, but I was impressed for what it was... But I'm also very much not the target audience for it, so I didn't really have anything to say about it.

Both? Neither? I debated that in my head, actually.

We'll definitely keep this in mind for the future. I know these exclusive streams are frustrating, and we mostly decide on a case-by-case basis whether it's worth posting/alerting you guys to their existence. I decided to post this one since I know a lot of commenters are hyped on the band and I don't think the album's going to get any other coverage beyond this, so I wanted to give people a space to discuss it if they wanted to. Get that it sucks if you're not an Apple Music subscriber, but also I personally hate all streaming services!! I'm still desperately clinging onto my mp3s...

July 21, 2016 on Danny L Harle – “Supernatural” (Feat. Carly Rae Jepsen)
Oh, those are two separate thoughts -- Devil & God is about to turn 10 in November, Daisy's only 7. I made it a little clearer up top. My fave (and I think the most lauded) is D&G!

Ok, I get why maybe you'd be icked out by this in that regard, but as far as I can gather Sarah (who is in the photo + leads the band) has been responsible for all the visuals for her project, and I'd imagine it's the same for this.

Don't really see how it's "problematic." Sure, it's ~provocative~, but it's pretty clearly (to me) a play off the whole aesthetic of Virgin Suicides and other movies of that ilk.

I totally felt the same way at first! But after a few more listens and some long car rides, I warmed up to it a lot more. Perfect Cast and You're Gonna Miss It All definitely have stronger hooks, but I admire what they did ~artistically~ and ~thematically~ here a lot more. Spend some more time with it (if you want!), it could grow on you.
