what's more boring ? this album or people dissing on clark's new shit while posting a Kin Griff video saying these were the good old days ?
is what I would have said if I didn't try to listen to Death Peak again after hearing it for the first time on my headphones while going to work, preparing for a hard day and only wishing for bangers. I wasn't in the mood to appreciate it. But yeah, when I put the album on again back home it really felt amazing. The harmonies and chord progressions on this are probably the prettiest he's ever written.
Butterfly Prowler and Catastrophe Anthem are my favourites so far. Slap Drones is AMAZING and its sound design really feels confident but it's kind of ear-fatiguing at the same time. That's what you get when drones slap I guess. Hoova and Un UK are messy though, not really in a good way. They do groove alright but their structure don't serve them well at all imo. Un UK's intro would have made a brilliant song itself... But the rest sounds a bit meh and cheesy :/
I don't get the bad comments on the kids' singing in Catastrophe Anthem. They're great! I thought music had the right to children :(
tl;dr It's a fucking good album
