New album out soon
New song here:
was of course tracks from the new Jofo album streaming all over the internet:
I'm 3 tracks in and it's sounding immense.
Particularly enjoyed the American Football style instrumental (complete with trumpet!) after 'if you can't be honest', the octave drop vocals and guest singer on 'incandescent' and the way they've tied the whole thing together through musical motifs as well as the artwork/posters etc.
I don't understand how they keep getting better, yet interest in them seems to be continually dwindling?
I forgot about this until the bump. had a listen this morning and it does sound very decent.
Will definitely give this a try.
Their record artwork is always consistently brilliant.
Never really thought Pitchfork bothered about them, strange to pick up on them so late on.
They posted on social media that it took them 10 years to get Pitchfork review but got one at last.
I think this is my favourite album they've done. They've grown a lot. I popped on Waited Up Till It Was Light there and it still sounds great but they've somehow managed to mature and develop whilst maintaining all of what made them great in 2006. It's great to behold and the dwindling interest is a pity. They're still making music which is enough for me, though.
for me to get into them, but then they burrow their way under my skin and I become obsessed. This one seems to be heading in this direction...
but damn, definitely still one of the albums of the year. Beautiful and hooky and fun and sad. Don't, Just Don't is my current favourite
Had completely forgotten how brilliant it was.
So I've gone back and listen to the other albums. The opening 6 tracks of Grace and the Bigger Picture are blustering and Waited Up Til It Was Light is so lovely and melancholic.
