amazing, one of the tunes of the year. i don't want to spin my wheels, i got no wheels to spin
If we're talking 6 minute Surfer Blood songs then I'm more of a 'Slow Jabroni' kinda guy myself. Ace tune.
The drum opening and guitar chords at the beginning are perfect, and the second half is just bliss.
everything about it, it took a while to grow on me but it's sheer perfection.
It's probably one of the record's highlights for me, too, because of the movement between its contrasting halves. The way it switches on that slow build from a song that feels directionless with the jarring guitar lines into a straight-up anthem is quality. Really gives life to the lyric 'if it feels right, at the right time, we'll work it out'.
someone comes along and nails something you were trying to put into words
I feel honoured haha.
which is why i really don't understand why i love them so much. hate lo-fi, but astro coast is one of my favourite things i've heard this year.
oh, and yeah, anchorage is the shit.
I don't see how you could describe Astro Coast as lo-fi, it's a pretty normal-fi record.
I love the way it 'kicks in' for a couple of bars and then they knock it up a notch further with the riff.
I think I've listened to Astro Coast more than any other album this year.
That I quite like that album
