New GBV album

August by Cake

actually seems to be quite good. Probs cos Doug’s back

Only listened to it once properly so far, some really good stuff but definitely too long. The opener is great:

Wasn’t expecting much after Please Be Honest (and Cool Planet wasn’t amazing either) but Gillard does seems to revitalised things a bit. It’s no Bears For Lunch though.

i’ve read that there’s another record due in a couple of months

yeah, it’s pretty epic. Quite diverse and some nice quirky pop, though:


I found Please Be Honest and Cool Planet quite bland in comparison to this.

prefer the even newer one

Saw this bumped and thought there might be another album.

kinda relevant though
