And just like that, the couple of months worth of waiting come to an end. My first listen was on a drive through a super foggy I-70 corridor, chugging up and down the Rocky Mountains.

I need more time to collect my thoughts and score this. A bunch of stuff is coming out soon, but i don’t suspect anything will supplant this for a while.

Happy to report that this record lives up to the solid singles released with immaculately sequenced tracks with no sight of a filler.

Gave it a few spins already and I can confidently say it's not only a sure contender for AOTY for me, but also one of my favorite albums of the past few years. Harding is truly incomparable. Such a unique voice and such a strong lyricist. DESIGNER builds upon everything that made PARTY so special. Not a weak track here, and perfectly sequenced.

Fav tracks: 'Designer', 'Zoo Eyes', 'The Barrel', 'Weight of the Planets'.
