Arguably rivaled by what has come before it, Green Druid has produced one of the heaviest and most unexpectedly beautiful records I have heard. Love it. Hard to pick a favorite track but if the first one doesn't suck you in then you're better off elsewhere.
A colossal record from an underappreciated band. I must compare them to the great Opeth for the best of reasons, but their similarities diverge in great ways. A truly inspiring and experimental journey from start to finish, the songs are each possessing of their own unique elements. Nothing feels overwrought or unearned here, even in the longer tracks. There's always a reason for the movements and that's what keeps it fresh with every listen. Love it. A once and future favorite.
Boisterous and joyfully intense. Pet Songs displays the ever maturing, infrequently resting warrior spirit that is Shehehe. The entire album is a raging fist shake, pummeling the listener with chunky guitar tones, energetic rhythms, and enviable 3-part vocal harmonies that anchor it in a lovingly gritty realism. Fuck yeah. Get it.
This record is magical and everything I needed in a release. Hum has that unparalleled quality of balancing heaviness with ethereal beauty and this record shows they never lost the touch. The tracks draw you into their own little worlds, while the whole of the album seems to be thematically tied either by lyrical elements or the tonal chemistry found from song to song. Don’t miss this one, it’s something truly special. The closing track destroys me every time I hear it.
