Sounds like commercials I don't want to watch for TV shows I also don't want to watch.
If you like LDR already then this is a pretty excellent addition to her discography imo. No ridiculous pop-crossover songs or curveballs (other than the blatant country twang of “breaking up slowly”), just elegant, tasteful arrangements and beautiful vocals and melodies. If you don’t like LDR this one won’t win you over. It’s pretty “safe” and nothing groundbreaking, but this is easily one of the best albums for my tastes that’s come out so far this year and I’m quite pleasantly surprised after coming in with fairly low expectations. Looking forward to adding most of these tracks to my growing LDR playlist for getting high as fuck and chilling to.
Wow, you’re the first person Ive ever heard mention that album. It has some incredible pop songs that I still jam to this day. I remember she was getting good press when Grown Unknown came out (which I believe Bon Iver had a hand in and helped with some guest vocals), but she completely changed her style from hushed folk to pop and Ices got zero exposure, which I thought was odd since it had some straight up hits. Very much looking forward to seeing what the new one brings. Also psyched to check out Arlo Parks and Indigo Sparke albums.

Better than anything on the last 2 EPs imo. Song is pretty immediate but time will tell how much staying power it has. Personally glad it’s a return to a more pop, less challenging sound.
I cannot understand why Dent May gets no love around here. His last two albums were practically masterpieces. Can’t wait to check out Late Checkout.

Who is Karen Karenson?
I prefer the almost comical smoothness of Angel for sure, but this has more of that than Middle America had me expecting so I have some hopes for this one. If you liked Angel and you haven’t already, you should really check out Jesse Jenkins (of Pure X) solo album Hard Sky under the name Jesse. It has got songs that are easily on par with Pure X’s best work for my money. I really hope he plans to drop another one at some point. Super underrated. Games of Chance is a serious jam. https://jessetoday.bandcamp.com/album/hard-sky-uni001
Really, really enjoy this album and Dan just seems like the nicest, coolest guy. I was lucky to see Caribou shortly after Swim came out while tripping on mescaline and Dan tolerated my not-shy-cuz-high insistence that he play a specific song from Andorra live (which he admitted was impossible). Definitely one of the best/most enjoyable shows I’ve ever seen. This album is all over the place and I love it. So many awesome, infectious melodies, samples and sonic moments that rarely let up. Another classic from one of the most consistent artists of our time.

Maybe for some people. Depends on your taste. Lot of competition this year. I think it’s a fairly challenging listen initially. Less pop and immediate, more avant garde and complex, but with incredible production of course, amazing vocals and a very serious, epic feel. I’m pretty interested to see what the critical reaction will be compared to LP1. I think it’s a logical progression, but less towards the pop side of things, which many aren’t going to be happy with if that's their expectation.
I'm definitely having a hard time connecting to much on the album outside of the title track and a couple others. I really liked Adrianne's last 2 solo records and thought UFOF was worthy of the universal acclaim, but I guess I just like the softer, less rock-oriented, more produced stuff. This sounds more like a debut album to me. Honestly a bit baffled by the critical adulation I've seen this receive so far since this seems like such a low-key release, but good for them. I'll wait and see what they do next.
Just checked all 3 songs out. This stuff is friggin great. At just 19 this guy seems like a prodigy. Real excited for this one. Tx for sharing.
