Super enjoyable. Not heard any other albums of theirs, though I have seen them live before and obviously know who they are. Fav tracks would be Rolling with Heat, The Seed, Break You Off, Complexity, Something in the Way... and I really love Thirsty!

The two albums before it, Illadelph Halflife and the aforementioned Things Fall Apart are essential. You’ll love them.

Upcoming album from THE ZIMM! getting stellar reviews across the board. I imagine many would take that with a grain of salt but I've read multiple critics implying it's better than Tempest and/or Modern Times, so...

Definitely picking up a copy on CD this Friday, if I can find it. Not sure how many more chances I'll have to get a new Dylan album that way.

I got the new Phoebe Bridgers record a day early, and damn, it's gorgeous. Kyoto is the best song in my mind, but the whole thing is really good. You guys will enjoy it.

The Phoebe Bridgers album is so good.

Kyoto does stand out because it's so upbeat in comparison, but I also really loved a few other tracks on first listen. The closer I Know The End...when those clear guitar strums come in up til the end. That's awesome stuff. When it really gets going it reminds me of something you'd hear on an old Sufjan album, like Illinois.

Come to think of it, she kinda reminds me of Sufjan in general. I had never really thought of that comparison until now.

That's a good call, GAF. Perhaps a bit less maximalist with composition than Sufjan, but I get where you are coming from.

I feel the same way. When I first heard Kyoto I couldn't help thinking of what an album with that kind of mood would sound like, but even if the rest is not as much of a departure from Stranger in the Alps, it's really great.

I Know the End was the other song that really stood out to me on first listen.

Her profile in The New Yorker a few weeks ago was really good: https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2...-anxious-music

Best two songs on Marquee Moon? Very easy for me - Marquee Moon by a mile, then Torn Curtain.

Marquee Moon and Elevation. Since they're back to back, I'm swept away for 15 minutes straight.

Reading about the Bridgers album, it sounds like Kyoto was a slower song that got sped up, and that Chinese Satellite was a much rockier song that got stripped down. She specifically said she worried Chinese Satellite sounded too much like "U2 shit."
