whole album's great but fuck me Banshee Beat all the way to the end is an absolutely remarkable stretch.

Honestly can't find the words to explain the great personal enjoyment I got out of this album, so I'll leave this instead:

"The bees the bees the bees the bees the bees the bees wrowrowroawowwww"

A lack of sonic identity leaves this album feeling a bit tasteless. It’s in an odd middle ground between the aesthetic of sung tongs(folky, acoustic, minimalist psychedelia) and the aesthetic of strawberry jam(sharp, synthetic, and poppy) which makes for an all together lack of a strong aesthetic.
