Holy Fawn

This could probably sit in any number of other overarching threads - but just listening to the record now (after seeing a much cooler friend write about them) and I’m blown away. They deffo deserve their own recommendation thread. think “Special” era Mew with some truly heavy elements thrown in. Absolutely ace.

Yep, quite rightly got a lot of love in the heavy thread last year. Definitely in my top 10 of last year

It got a lot of love in the shoegaze thread too.
It’s a hell of an album.

One of last years best albums. Absolutely brutal in places.

Yeah…I really bristle at a lot of “blackgaze” stuff, but this hit me in a sweet spot. The songs are really well constructed

Just dug this out, it was lurking in my backlog of 2018 listening. I did like it (I grabbed “Seer” and put it in a playlist) but Christ yes, this is bloody great. The end of Arrows is crushing.

Final track kicks in quite nicely around 3:30.

This is really good, had it on all morning. Love the last couple of mins of Vespertine, really beautiful.
