I really like the new album, any other fans here?
She's good live too.
And it was already really good. Spooky set by the way, candle-light and everything. But to me this album tops all previous, heard it on Pitchfork advance and fell for it.
& yes, amazing live
I asked in the last.fm thread yesterday "why is there no Chelsea Wolfe thread?'....but there is. Yeah, love the new album, it eclipses her previous stuff by some degree. It will be high up in my top albums of the year. Keeps getting better with each listen
Keep meaning to get into her stuff. Which album should get first? Or should I go chronologically?
but I'd start with Apokalypsis, the 2nd album proper, which is the spectral, echo-ey, folky rock album:
Then move on to the new album, Pain Is Beauty, which is more diverse and pretty:
Then I'd recommend Unknown Rooms, the acoustic album, which is really beautiful:
Then on to the murky, promising first proper album The Grime And The Glow:
After that, if you're totally suckered in (like I was, almost instantly), see if you can track down the vinyl only EP of Rudimentary Peni covers, Prayer For The Unborn:
and the split EP with King Dude:
There was also a first album of more straightforward singer/songwriter stuff which she has since pretty much disowned, and it's definitely not up there with the amazing, haunting, diverse stuff which followed but isn't as embarrassing as she later said. Definitely the work of someone trying to find their sound though, and only really recommended once your already smitten:
like this one of Burzum's Black Spell Of Destruction:
Here's a new song:
I really didn't care for her last album, but this has me very excited.
shaping up to be very good so far.
Sounds absolutely fantastic.
Hoping for a UK tour as I see a big gap between US dates and a show in Belgium.
Yeah. It's been a while since she played The UK. Would be great to see her again.
jesus, Beach House, Chelsea, and even Girl Band's just announced debut has already leaked this week.
They just need to keep the level of the two EPs to make the debut of the year.
their tour, doing the ireland dates
