Love this album a ton, so many great tracks on here. Anyone else hear a bit of How Soon is Now in that guitar in Continental Shelf? Can’t just be me.
And seriously March of Progress is such a fucking murderous song.
Oh man, I’m still only part way through my first listen, but man this is so so so good. I thought March of Progress was going to follow the Women formula of having an early album droning breather, but boy, what a fucking build that one is. Might even be the stand out for me. Pointless experience is also killer, same with pretty much any of the singles.
Man I really can’t stand that subreddit, but you certainly can’t question the intensity of some of those fans.
Man, that second “h” track is so fuckin’ dope.
Is anyone else thinking that there might be a more complete version of this album? When I downloaded the Gov’t Plates stems, each song came as two parts: (Vocals) and (Instrumentals). This album is not just called Fashion Week, it’s called Fashion Week (Instrumentals), at least when I load it into iTunes.
I’ve heard them grouped together, but I really liked the TOPS album and not Alvvays. That said, both are not doing anything exceptional or new, its just good song craft and nice, inoffensive sounding music.
For me, this is just the right amount of pulling back on the reigns after niggas on the moon. Excited for the rest of it.
“Fans in a small town like a Sacramento, or a Toronto” – I’m not sure he knows how big Toronto is.
So far, I’m REALLY digging this album. I’ve never put Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti on a best of list, but this is immediately grabbing me. I’m really curious to read the personnel list on this, I can definitely hear John Maus in this (White freckles through Not Enough Violence). It could be their similar aesthetics, but I’m willing to bet John Maus has his prints on here somewhere. Super dense album, and probably going to be right near the top of the year end for me.
