There’s definitely this argument to be made. Though it’s more similar in practice to what boarder community nailed well over a decade ago.

Fwiw I still like it.


#42

He does veer into coffee table Guardiantronica occasionally.


#43

Here we go…


#44

Feels more like a critique of social class than music but what do I know? :man_shrugging:


#45

The new track is fucking brilliant and the video is great too


#46

He sounds like Hookworms


#47

@NickDS I was definitely rambling to you about him last night, check out the video in the post i’m replying to here and let me know your thoughts


#48

Album launch show at Village Underground 10th May on sale now…


#49

I got two tickets to this, having refreshed the link at exactly 10 o clock, surprised there’s still tickets now apparently

SO FUCKING EXCITED


#50

Yup, I’m going too. Don’t know how well publcised it has been - I only saw it in his own Twitter.

Pretty psyched, especially as I realised I was away for the Brixton shows in November :+1:


#51

:smiley: can’t believe I missed this until now


#52

just finishing my first listen of the album now, and obviously absolutely gorgeous, but also his music really hits me on quite a deep, resonant level. I have such specific memories attached to Immunity as it (and Sunbather as a weird, but maybe not, counterbalance) was all I listened to in the summer of 2013 when I moved from Glasgow to London and it was pretty much the perfect soundtrack for it.

Very much looking forward to seeing him at Latitiude


#53

Each new track just builds my excitement for his new album.


#54

Oh my…


#55

Thats probably my fav off the new album


#56

Very nice :+1: Reminds me a bit of this (which is a good thing btw)…


#57

Sounding like he’s aimed squarely at the dancefloor and capturing the euphoria of his sets. I’m here for it.


#58

the bass sounds like it’s alive


#59

Isn’t straying far from the sound of Immunity is he?

This new one defs gets prettaaaay cheesy and I can dig me some cheesy progressive house. Time and a place for it and I’m sure it will make many good summer festival moments, but not sure I’m that interested in this as a record atm


#60

Yeah it’s not that dissimilar, which is probably my only major criticism of this record, but it’s still very enjoyable all the same
