This is such a great album. I truly believe that every American city has a great band at the moment and this is Portland's. I love Neil Young and I love Beirut's Riptide. This record makes me as happy as either. It's just awesome.
I heard Wavves on Radio 1 today and wasn't sure I liked the experience. It seemed as though their new stuff might make them famous. Therefore this is probably my last chance for a bit of possessive enjoyment: for now they are still my band and capable of the highest of highs.
Ty Segall is a huge celebrity in my world of music and this is the kind of thing that makes me grateful beyond belief. He did a proper album a coupe of months ago and his band has a live album out next month, yet he still found time to realise this nugget of excellence.
It's amazing. A bit folky and a bit like These New Puritans. It might be the best thing she ever does because the new single doesn't seem as good as this. If it is, she will have reached incredible heights and can retire happy.
