Look, full disclosure, I’ve been enjoying this album since it leaked yesterday. But I’m just a dude listening alone in his house. Posting about it to spread awareness, and then actually including a song from some tumblr stream is kind of fucked up.
Sauna’s placement on this list is comically low. Phil’s about to drop a goddamn masterpiece on your heads and y’all ain’t even ready.
Hate to be that guy, but Still Night was their third album. Spectrums is their fourth.
Based on the iTunes previews (which are gone now, shocker), this is one of the more accessible songs on the album. Think more ‘Tomorrow, In a Year’ than ‘Silent Shout’. Definitely don’t go in expecting anything poppy.
Personally I think this song is amazing.
haha, got em
More bands should follow this model of album release. Start selling the vinyl at a show with absolutely no warning, wait a few hours, make official announcement saying it will be available everywhere in two weeks, watch everyone shit themselves. No fuss, no hyping, just great music.
Why is no one asking him the important questions, like what’s going on with that new Volcano Choir album he mentioned a few months ago?
If anything from Shields deserves to be on this list, it’s got to be Sun In Your Eyes. What an incredible closer.
Uh, the Place Lives is from Clear Moon, not Ocean Roar.
Also both albums are excellent.
“Why do people have to pick which one they think is better?”
