if you own antarctica takes it!'s first album, then you'll know that dylan mckeever writes romantic, magical songs in the vein of sufjan stevens, the decemberists and belle and sebastian. famously, he recorded his debut directly into the internal mic of his laptop, creating a clattering, charming lo-fi masterpiece in the process. with his second album, he appears to have bought himself a microphone and perhaps even spent some time in a proper studio, because he takes the lo-fi spirit of the first record and introduces it to all the clarity and beauty and sparkling perfection that the modern recording process can offer. he also stretches out to touch slightly broader reference points, with the indie folk of the debut being joined by soaring aislers set-style pop, gorgeous beach boys-esque harmonising, the kind of stumbling, good-hearted folk that bright eyes might have produced in recent years, and a joyous, wild-eyed, creatively-ablaze energy that has you wondering what the hell he's going to do next. it's a magnificent record and how does it feel to be loved? are very proud to be releasing it. the album contains eleven songs and an eight page booklet, containing original art by maria schoettler and sleeve notes by dylan.
