I'm shocked that Cobbler didn't come in here to remind us that the new Gang of Youths album dropped today.

angel in realtime.

oof, that's lower than HTDAAB.

The review reads better than the score, at least.

I was going to respond to your first post and say, because it's being critically panned, but I see you found that out on your own.

I refused to read the review once I read the description of it and realised it'd be a bit negative. I'm quite disappointed (not in the album, which I think is great) but in the review. I and many other Aussies have been screaming down Pitchfork for years to give them love, especially when Go Farther in Lightness started enjoying global success (and they review Camp Cope and even Georgia Maq's solo record, despite the fact they're way, way, way smaller than Gang of Youths), and they finally do it and it's negative. Feels like it's starting them off on the wrong foot. I've not read the review yet so maybe it is more positive, but the description and reactions here suggest it's not.

Listening to an album where someone tries and fails to pull off a jazz-folk-alt hybrid (Island of Noise by Modern Nature) makes me further appreciate the alchemy in the Cassandra Jenkins album from last year.

I reckon the new GoY album blows Go Further in Lightness out of the water. I often lost focus while listening to the previous album, whereas I’m hanging onto almost every minute on Angel in Realtime.

And for some reason I’m enjoying Unison and Man Himself a lot more in their album context.

It’s been years since a song has moved me as much as Brothers does - hits so hard.

These lads have escalated in my estimation massively. May go and check them at Rod Laver.

I saw a video of her demoing that song where she somehow manages to play the solo and the underlying melody at the same time. Incredible.

She's incredible. I need to listen to her solo stuff more often. I think I've listened to all her albums but rarely go back to it. Incredible artist. Can't wait for their live show either. Big Thief was my first pandemic show to be cancelled back in 2020, so there are tons of songs from the last three albums that I really want to see live.

I know people get mad whenever I mention these guys, but I'm in a Biffy Clyro Facebook group and Gang of Youths is really big with Biffy fans. I gave them a listen and I see why. They definitely have some similarities even though GOY is a bit mellower.

This song exemplifies what I love so much about them. There's a subtle flourish on the vocals at the end of each line in the verses - a little burst of reverb and pitch modulation. It works so well. They consistently have little details like that that elevate their songs. Incredible nuance.

This one will be hard to beat for AOTY for mine. The Dealer is a phenomenal opener.

Hadn't heard of her before, but this is really good. Great grooves and melodies.
