Their album was not.
19 years between their last release, 1996’s “Fantastic Planet”,
a masterpiece of a rock album and “The Heart Is A Monster”.
The musical chemistry between Ken Andrews, Greg Edwards
and Kellii Scott still very much potent after all these years.
I am in awe of these people. May they stay Failure(s) forever.
Beliefs brought it with their sophomore Shoegaze opus. After many listens,
the replay value gets higher and higher.
Sufjan gave me a case of the sadz. It’s one of the most beautiful
and raw album i’ve heard in years.
Girl Band and Metz are fans of each others music and I am of theirs.
Clearly, we all have amazing tastes.
