I don't listen to K-pop and went in super open minded and all I have to say is its just alright. I didn't really hate it but its not my thing really and wasn't catchy enough to really pull me in and get me moving. The worst offender and the really only bad song was track 5 for obvious reasons I didn't not want to hear anyone from BTS saying "Hennessy" and "Fuck all your opps". The production on that song was awful too. The last track was just a ... read more
This album was pretty different for me and I don’t think I’ve ever sought out blues music and obviously this isn’t exactly a traditional place to start. I found out about this album because it was playing when I was browsing at my local record store and I though it was pretty genius from the 4 tracks I heard so my expectations when getting into this one were high. I think that this would have been a slog if I didn’t break up my listening sessions (even ... read more
Half the lyrics made me throw up or cringe and this review is just gonna be some gems. The adlibs on this were horrendous like when she was gurgling what I can only assume to be cum in the background or when she lets off a moan just for fun. Also a goat bleated which was pretty cool.

"If you wanna cum, gotta level up"
"Cum, cum, cum (cum), yeah"
"I could take it all, love it big ... read more
I would literally skip through half of these tracks if this gets put on but that's not to say that those songs are bad but they certainly are mediocre. "Bottle of rum", "Rumpus room" and "OH NO" are certified bangers especially the feature on "OH NO" as the crazed German shouting is a wonderful addition and helped build the manic and unsettling vibe I look for in xiu xiu. "ANTS" shouldn't have made it onto this thing as it is ... read more
I loved everything about this LP and its really fucking creepy while still being super beautiful with its melodic orchestral bits on tracks like "Pursuit of Dignity" and "At the Bank" which have amazing keys over them. Being able to have calmer moments within such a cluttered and noisy sound space adds so much re-play value for this album. I loved all of the electronic elements and have really been sucked into genres like digital hardcore and avant-garde ... read more
