people are saying
'in the flowers' was what we call 'dancer'
'summertime clothes' is what we call 'bearhug'
'my girls' was 'house'

They're MUCH more electronics based the last three albums. Very simple, catchy electronic pop songs. The most likely reason for the more electronic sound is the lack of guitarist Deakin on this batch of songs (supposedly he'll return for the next album).

I read a long time ago, before they recorded, that it'll have a lot more "studio flourishes" than Strawberry Jam (which sounded very very close to the live versions, while Feels is vastly different in the live environment than the studio recordings).

I dunno if that will still be true but I'm hoping so. I like listening to the different versions of feels tracks.

whole thing leaked. the leak isn't the highest quality, but the album sounds pretty good on first listen; similar to strawberry jam in terms of sound design i think, but perhaps more polished, and i think in general the songs themselves are better. overall, sort of sounds like a mixture of strawberry jam and person pitch

i just got the official release (don't ask)
it's good
sounds like animal collective with a sligthly larger budget
it's hard to give a review of a band i've never really liked all that much but i definitely enjoyed a greater portion of this than any other AC record
