I get Slint vibes, but also kind of has the atmosphere of something like Sun Kil Moon’s Benji.I don't understand the appeal beyond the hype generated by the singles. It's watered down Slint with no point of difference beyond some milquetoast horns. Self-censoring the "big pharma" line on Sunglasses? Pretty lame.
It's not bad - I'll listen to it - but it's not the best album released this year. That honour would have to go to Shame - Drunk Tank Pink.

I'm more interested to see what Squid do (from the same scene) with their debut LP this year. Their sound isn't really anything new either, but I've still enjoyed everything they have put out.I get Slint vibes, but also kind of has the atmosphere of something like Sun Kil Moon’s Benji.
Not the worst, but a little bland on first listen. The ideas are fine, it’s just lacking some real depth and could have been trimmed to something closer to EP length.
The 6 track LP does hark back to Spiderland a fair bit.
Think indie rock is in a flat spot in general, but the band will end up putting out some decent stuff.
Pretty cool. Sounds like a more mathy Talking Heads.I'm more interested to see what Squid do (from the same scene) with their debut LP this year. Their sound isn't really anything new either, but I've still enjoyed everything they have put out.
The chorus riff and chorus outro riff are excellent.2nd single from Royal Blood's expected new album came out about a month ago and I have just only discovered it today.
Song is called Typhoons and has similar insturmentals and sounds like Arcade Fire & IDKHOWBTFM but with more guitar riffs with it and boy is it such a banger to listen to so far for anyone interested in that sort of Alternative Rock & Indie Pop music.
Their album (Typhoons) is expected to be released to the public on the 30th April, 2021.
Just listening to Thurnin - Trials of Menhir, and you're right it is majestic. Beautiful.Thurnin - Menhir & Harakiri for the sky - Maere are clearly my 2 favourite albums released this year. Menhir is an (acoustic) instrumental folk album and Maere is a mix of black & post-metal. Although sonically they aren't very similar, the atmosphere created by each album is spot on, 'majesty' vs 'chaotic beauty.' I would say HFTS are rapidly becoming one of my favourite metal bands that formed this century, and maybe even beyond this century. Thurnin on the other hand, is a one man project from the Netherlands and 'Menhir' is his first album.
