It's rather excellent.
Only listened once, but seemed from the off like it's gonna get heavy rotation through the summer. Perfect lazy afternoon music
Even so, I'm going to resist the urge to stream and wait till I've got it. So happy to be hearing good things.
waiting til the physical release is in my hands. have no time for these premature mp3 leak things.
is the rest of the album in a similar vein? I did appreciate Bitte Orca and enjoyed seeing them live, but a lot of the songs on it were really too difficult to listen to, too angular and a bit try-hard for me. This sounds more laid back and less taut; if the rest of the album is similar then I'll definitely buy it next week.
the title track is possibly the most straightforward track I've heard by them, still different enough to keep you interested though.
not sure what it is about this band that makes me so happy but i've got a massive grin now due to listening to Swing Lo Magellan for the first time.
