Some really smooth songs with some really crazy beats. One of those albums you can rock out to and fall asleep to all the same. It's a great listen for people who want a new brand of indie rock/electronica or for those just looking for new music in general.
Favorite track: You Shall Know The Spirit.
Pfarmers is a band comprised of The National’s Bryan Devendorf, Menomena’s Danny Seim, and Dave Nelson, a horn player who’s collaborated with the likes of St. Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, and Beirut.
According to Seim:
"The record is about a dream I had where I’m reluctantly accepting a fear of drowning by focusing on being reincarnated as a giant Gunnera plant, which thrive on the banks of rivers (specifically the Jordan River i.e. the Biblical promised land) after I paint myself gold and sink to the bottom like the El Dorado of South American folklore."
This is such a head bop. I can't get enough of the old style of Car Seat Headrest, so to see the greatest hits of classic CSH be remastered before they move onto their amazing new stuff is unbelievably perfect. I love how it keeps the crunchy, lo-fi sound of the originals, but still sounds new as hell; I can't get enough of the sound of this album. The only thing that'd make this album better would be to put a remastered version of Souls on here. (Also the new, original song on here is dope too) Bedroom Atlas
We are enormous fans of Pinegrove but that feels like an understatement. We are for everything they do from their DIY ethic to our fellow Jersey roots and of course to their musical novelty, more pressingly, their lyricism. I contend there's no current alt/indie project that shares the challenge towards articulation that Evan produces.
Every track is indispensable. The album is consummate like that; Old friends is incomplete without new friends, cadmium without aphasia, so on/so forth.
