I think you have to be in the right mood for bands like these (black midi, dry cleaning, whoever else). Or really into the scene. As a casual listener it may not work. I have some friends who think these bands are the bees knees but I’m seem to be looking for any excuse to switch it off. I just think guitar bands don’t excite me like they did up to 15 years ago.

Just embarked on my first listen of Bright Green Field. I've liked some of their songs before this. Recent single "Narrator" was interesting, did sound a bit too much like LCD Soundsystem in the first half but got way more interesting in the second half. Town Centre EP from 2019 wasn't bad, one song was great but I can't recall which one it was without listening again.

I’m getting more b52 vibes than I am LCD vibes and I’m not complaining. Very good album, I’ve warmed up to their sound. 

not totally sure why they’re on Warp, but why not I guess. I’m just looking forward to warp talking about something else now, they’ve been hyping this album for 6 months.

hmm i'm digging the LP. definitely has some teeth. reminds me of Talking Heads and of all things These Arms Are Snakes, the latter for the sinister yet poppy dance vibes and sometimes aggro vocals. the album cover is great too, reminds me of the creepy fake grass in beetlejuice. not afraid to be funny either. maybe also a little Pere Ubu.

i can see comparisons to Black Country, New Road, but i didn't really care much for their debut.

People need to stop crying about the fact that warp 'doesnt release enough electronic music'. (I know I did it once as well but hey) Just because it ain't what you want doesn't mean it's bad, it might not be your cup of tea but you don't need to write it off instantly. I feel like some people on this forum need to get rid of their snobby attitude towards music and broaden their horizons a bit. When you listen to this for example, go into thinking 'hmmm, maybe this is going to get me into rock music of any mind's instead of 'okay this is not electronic music so I know it's going to suck dick and I hate warp for putting this out and falling of because they don't release enough music that I want to hear.'

 

You will find that there is a lot more music other than idm in this world that you'll enjoy
