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."
The very first album I purchased in vinyl 💙The tracks are so raw and real that they still make me tear up a little every time I play this. I can't personally relate to Sufjan's story (death of a parent), but this album got me through the hardest months of my life. Thank you so much for making life a little more bearable 💙🧡 gracewidodo
