It's pleasant without being exceptional IMHO.. Listened to the album this afternoon.
Not sure how I feel about the album yet, but this opener is amazing. My favourite track of 2019 so far. If you dont like this, dont bother with the rest of the album.
That's a real nice sound actually mattyFirst listened to this a few days ago, but given it another listen this evening...really good ambient music, blends traditional Japanese musical styles with 80's and 90's ambient influences along with contemporary electronic music. Has a very refined, ethereal sound.
Love the artwork too, may get a vinyl copy.
Yeah was listening to that the other day, just the first few tracks...didn't grab me but seemed decent. Will have to give it a full listen.
Been watching the reputational rise of these boys with interest, Dublin post punkers Fontaines DC...without ever seeing quite what the fuss is about from the live stuff on YouTube...
... Have to admit though the album is really very very good indeed. More complex musically than I was expecting tbh... there's obviously a massive dose of Joy Division in there... never a bad thing...pogues comparisons are inevitable too I guess... but I can also hear elements of the Clash in there, bits of the Fall and even, weirdly, something slightly Smithsy on some tracks.
Cracking album, well worth a listen. Will be in lots of top ten lists come the end of the year I reckon.
