Predictable “Hissing Fauna” response BUT
Anyone else excited FOR their new album?
A title like White is relic/Irrealis Mood suggests the indulgent version of Of Montreal, especially with the lead track being called Plateau Phase/No Careerism No Corruption, but it starts pretty down the line (though should end at about the 4 minute mark, which is when I assume it becomes the latter song title. Just have it as two tracks so I can skip one ffs).
This is the obligatory point where I point out that they’ve released a ton of great shit since Hissing Fauna (all of lousy with sylvianbriar is great), but I do concede that there was a phase back there where they seemed to be constantly releasing new material and a lot of it was this Georgie Fruit funk that they got a bit hung up on.
I reckon if False Priest had followed Hissing Fauna instead of Skeletal Lamping, they’d be more than a respected curiosity these days, but I think that decision was intentional so there we are.
