literally never heard him but just happened upon it on twitter and listening now, sounds fun

He’s my 3rd most listened to artist of the last 15 years according to last.fm :open_mouth:

Looking forward to hearing whether or not he’s incorporated more of the ambient stuff he was talking about back when I interviewed him

There’s a limited to 300 copies mixed pink and blue vinyl on that bandcamp, down to 17 left already - get in quick!

Yeeeeaaahhh!

I was savouring it for my train journey home but my ipod doesn’t want to play ball :frowning:

This is quality stuff, like how the title track goes into a proper rager halfway through.

This is great stuff, pleasant surprise yesterday!

4 tracks in and this is absolutely fantastic so far, I’m blown away by how intense but also how concise and sharp it is

Great, great stuff. In my top 5 albums of the year so far, at least

Oh god, this album is so good. Put off listening it to a few days, worried that I’d listened to way too much Rosenstock lately and that it just wouldn’t click for me, but it’s exactly what I need right now.

The bit where ‘N O D R E A M’ suddenly shifts is making me giddy every time.

Just to add to the list of people saying this is really good, this is really good. Fun but intelligent, it’s a blast from start to finish - loving it. It’s all great but the final track (Ohio Tpke) is a thing of particular joy and beauty for me

I listened to about 6 tracks earlier and thought it was really good, especially like the 4th track or something, shouty, fast one, I wasn’t looking at the titles, etc. Will be keen to hear it more times (and indeed in full) - soon.

Really love this record. Might end up being my favourite of his yet. Just what I needed right now too and one that reminds me of the power of punk music as escapism. Essentially, Jeff successfully made me feel like I was 15 years old again (aided by spending all my time indoors watching films and playing video games) :upside_down_face:

This really is a great escape album and much needed.

Yes I was enjoying it too then got distracted by Dark Souls. Thanks for the thread refreshes people. I’ll listen to it later. Seems real fun and great and @wors you make a great point here.
